A Plan to Improva tha Cotton Market There appears elsewhere in The Republican a statement to the cotton growers of the Salt River Valley signed by Mr. E. G. Attaway, who has been operating the gin at Mesa; Mr. C. Grant Jones, presi dent of the Tempe Cotton Exchange; and Mr. W. S. Dorman of Phoenix, who for years has been in touch with the cotton situation and several years ago was sent by the cotton growers of the valley to England to study the opportunity for marketing Salt River Valley cotton in that country. The plan which these men outline, if supported by the cotton growers of the valley, as we believe it should be supported, will do a great deal to improve the cotton situation. It is well known that there has been practically no market for cotton in this valley for the past sixty days. This has been due to a number of causes, the principal cause being the lack of a co-operative marketing association on the part of the cotton powers such as, for Instance, has been operating successfully in the Imperial Valley for sev eral years. An individual working alone to dispose of his cot ton is quite seriously handicapped, but if the plan proposed by Messrs. Attaway, Jones and Dorman suc ceeds the smallest grower can put whatever cotton he has into this consignment plan and he will be assured of obtaining sufficient cash in advance on it to take care of his present needs and enable him to proceed with his planting for this season, and he will know that his cotton will be promptly shipped to a point in New England available for the use of spinners who, through previous experience have learned the great value of this Arizona cotton, and in all probability will become active competitive bidders for the same. Many of the best posted cotton growers who have been carefully studying this situation have felt that one Of the things needed to relieve the situation was to place in some bonded warehouse in New England In the center of the cotton spinning district, an ample upply of the Arizona cotton. 'The proposed plan will do this. We believe that nothing will do more to stimulate the use of this cotton than the plan proposed, which has been strongly commended by the United States Bureau of Markets. A recent letter from Charles J. Brand of the Bureau of Markets to Dwight B. Heard, contains the following significant statements relative to the situation in New England as to the use of Ari zona Pima Cotton: "All spinners were agreed that rrescnt equipment in their mills was adequate to handle Arizona Pima cotton as advantageously as Sea Island or Egyption. Only minor adjustments would have to be made and this can be made with no delay and little expense. "Hand tests made by expert cotton classers at several mills, notably the Nonquit, Manomet and Nashawen Mills at New Bedford indicate that Ari zona cotton is superior in tensile strength to both Sakellaridis and Sea Island. "Several facts are operating to keep Arizona cot ton from New England markets. In the first place, there has been, during the past year, an insufficient upply for sale on the open market. Spinners are not interested in odd lots. When they create a demand for a certain class of goods, they desire to be in a position to fill return orders and to do so they must be sure of a dependable supply of raw material. It therefore is eminently desirable that New England spinners be made to feel that the supply of long ataple cotton from Arizona can be depended upon. "Without doubt many spinners would be interested in Arizona cotton properly warehoused, in New Eng land, who now are not interested in the Arizona market. If Arizona cotton were warehoused in New England, it would be necessary for the growers to be represented by a broker or some other representative" In a recent letter received by Mr. Dorman from Mr. McLaughlin of the Imperial Valley Long Staple Cotton Growers' Association, Mr. McLaughlin refers to the success of a similar plan in the Imperial Valley, and stated that at the date of his letter February ITth the Imperial growers had within the past ten days shipped out 4,000 bales on a similar consignment plan resulting in an active demand, at increased prices, for other cotton they had for sale. In view of the foregoing it would seem that the effort started by Messrs. Attaway, Jones and Dor man, is a long step n the right direction, should do much to stimulate the market for Arizona cotton and improve present unsatisfactory conditions; while the high Standing of the three men who have taken hold cf this project who have agreed to handle the matter absolutely without personal compensation, should as sure the growers that everything possible will be done for their interests. The Navy Department We are always glad to take notice of anything that is said in favor of Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels. We feel a pleasure in joining in tribute to any efficient officer and our pleasure is now the greater because we did not always approve Mr. 'Daniels. Whether we misunderstood him or whether his conduct was changed is immaterial, though we' are frank enough to confess that we believe now that Mr. Daniels always had a clearer conception of his duties than his critics had. , Mr. Daniels has especially distinguished himself since we got into war by sticking close to the busi ness of sawing wood, and when an inventory came to be made of the achievements of our various depart ments and bureaus connected with the business of ' making war, his was the one which showed the highest degree of efficiency. The country was amazed when it was discovered that long before we engaged in the war Mr. Daniels must have been busy getting ready for it, while the country was complaining of him as a pacifist. The house committee on naval affairs on Tuesday submitted a report of its investigation of the affairs of the, navy department which has been found to be flawless, and what is still better, efficient. Every thing was up-to-the-minute and beyond expec tations. There has been no hurrah in the navy de-. partment, and though there have been horn-blowers for most of the other activities of the government in connection with war work, paid promoters of this or that man, there has been no publicity to speak of Xvr tbe navy department, . - There is one bit of navy department publicity, though, that should be mentioned, and it is one that has warmed the hearts of all newspaper men anew to Mr. Daniels, himself a newspaper man. They felt prouder of him. For the last two years there -has been received weekly, and sometimes 'oftener, in every newspaper office in the country, an envelope bearing the stamp of the navy department. Its en closure, running from fifty words to never more than one hundred words, was a crisp, well written article, sometimes only an interesting anecdote, relating to the marine corps. It was Jn pleasing contrast to the drub deluge of words, sounding the praise of this or that war activity, issued by some branch of the Committee on Public Information or some publicity agent, and which editors for the most part tossed into the waste paper basket with fiendish glee. They have generally used the navy department publicity because' they recognized in it the training of a newspaper man, one who knows the value of newspaper space and who has sense enough to know that the average reader will not wade through a long wearisome, fulsome, hyper bolical, hysterical disquisition by writers to whom the value of a story is determined by the greater length of it. The committee report on naval affairs especially praises the marine service, the "Soldiers of the Sea," a bright spot in the naval organization even before the reconstruction of it was begun by Mr. Daniels. Another feature of the report is the commendation of the navy for its "business efficiency," in which, we think, and we believe, that with all the informa tion at hand, io one will dispute it, the navy stands solitary and alone. Every Lot, a Garden Spot Phoenix lias the reputation of being one of the cities that always does its part and often times more than its part. However in this time of necessity for food production' rhocnix is not doing what it could. Hundreds of vacant lots, now covered with weeds and rubbish could be made garden spots. The very day that England declared war the Royal Horticultural society sent out an urg'ent appeal for private gardens. That year 150,000 new gardens sprang up and arrangements were made for the dis tribution of the food stuffs on a large scale. Today in England there are no less than 1,000,000 garden plots where once were dumps and waste ground. In the United States, a great many cities have begun a . campaign for cleaning the city by clearing out the rubbish and putting in gardens. Take a drive through Phoenix and nearly every block has one or more vacant lots, the same, a dumping ground for the public. The time has now come for definite action on the part of all. We have given and will give in even larger amounts our money and some, our lives. We have meatless and wheatless days and are admonished on all sides. "Do not Waste: Food will win the war." AH very well, Dit why not "Production Days," "Gar deningHourst" "Use your back yards and vacant lots." Two thousand families could have 2,000 gardens . in which they could raise enough for 20 meals for the family. That would mean the saving of at least 40,000 meals, enough to feed a cantonment for one day. Every meal thus saved reduces the vegetable bill and can be added to the thrift stamp cards. Hun dreds of boys and girls are wasting many hours that could be saved by a family garden. The business man will enjoy an hour in the garden in the morning and be better prepared for his day's work as a re sult of the exercise. The following plan, if worked by every family will make Phoenix the garden spot of the world. 1. Clean off your back yard and vacant lot and make it ready for the plow and spade. 2. See that some kind of water is available. . 3. Put in now only such seeds as will supply the family table before the hot days come. Special sum mer products can be put in later. Consult seed stores and garden specialists on this subject. 4. Give your boy, girl or neighbor's boy the task of caring for it with a chance to earn and save. 5. Most important of all: Do it Now, and Keep it up. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter until Kaiser ism is no more. r Slogan: EVERY LOT, A GARDEN SPOT. HEADS U. S.

PUPILS PUN Tl FIX IT IIP FBI THEIR T Diplomatic relations have been se verely strained, in fact almost to the breaking point, between the pupils of the Phoenix Union High school and those of the Indian school, all because the faculties of these two institutions have each laid claim to being the bet ter baseball players.

Advo cates of woman suffrage in Texas won the first skirmish in their fieht for a. law which will permit women to vote m primary elections and particpate in nominating conventions today when the suffrage committee of the lower house of the legislature reported out favorably a bill embodying these pro visions. The bill may come up on sec ond reading tomorrow. Although oppo sition will be made to the bill on Uie floor of the house its pivwaments ex press confidence enough votes can be mustered finally to pass it. The house bill providing statutory prohibition still was in the hands of the printer tonight. In the senate a letter from President Wilson to the Texas Equal Suffrage association was read, expressing the hope that the Texas legislature would give women the right to vote in the primaries. "The democratic partysis so clearly committed to tre principle of woman suffrage," he wrote, "that I feel it my duty as the leader of the party to urge this action by the legislature. "And it is also a privilege which I value to yield to my own persrjal con victions and urge such action on its merits. I sincerely hope the measure wlli become a law." WARTIME RECIPE FOR GRAY HAIR Actress Gives Simple Inexpensive Recipe for Streaked or Faded Gray Hair Mrs. Mackie, the well known New York actress, now a grandmother, and whose hair is still dark, recent ly made the following statement: "Gray streaked or faded hair can be immediately turned black, brown or light brown, whichever shade you desire, Iry the use of the. following simple remedy that you can make at home: "Merely get a small box of Orlex powder at any drug store. - It costs only 25 cents and no extras to buy. Dissolve it in one ounce of water and comb it through the hair. Full di rections for use come in each box. "You need not hesitate to' use Or lex, as a $100.00 gold bond comes in each box guaranteeing the user that Orlex powder does not contain silver, lead, zinc, sulphur, mercury, aniline, coaltar products or their de rivatives. "It does not rub off, is not sticky or gi-easy, and leaves the hair fluf fy. It will make a gray haired per son look many years younger."
