Maccabees Hold "Yarn Party"
The Maccabees gave a "yarn party"
at the hall Friday evening which
proved to be one of the most unique
and pleasant entertainments ever
given by that lodge. The hall was
decorated with knitted garments,
which were made by the ladies of the
Maccabee, with hanks of yarn and with
the Maccabee colors, black, red and
white. The program opened by an ad
dress by Mrs. Mattie Fafford in which
she explained the reason for the party.
The work taken up by the Maccabees
in this way is known as the W. B. A.
Patriotic Service league and is under
the Grand Review.
Twenty-four little daughters of Mac
cabees performed the Red Cross driil
of the league, at which timo a silver
offering was taken to advance the
work. - .
Each man present was asked to
"spin a yarn" or pay a fine, some of
the "yarns" proved quite "exciting. . In
the knitting contest C. G. Jones won
the prize and A. J. Matthews the
booby. In the rice eating contest Don
Frankcnberg and G. R. Finch tied for
first honors. After refreshments A.
B. Clark acted as toast master and
some very cieVer speeches were made.

The Woman's club of Mesa was or
ganized a year ago with 5J charter
members, and now has a membership
of 6. Lnder the leadership of Bert
inger, who combines exe'euive abil
ity with tact, the club has grown until
u is now one of the influential organ
izations of the community. Last fall
the club purchased a Liberty bond, and
yesterday voted that this be set aside
as a nucleus tup building fund.
Contest to End in Banquet
The members of the Mesa camp,
ft oodmen of the World, are recovering
their splendid appetites of a year ago
and have arranged to satisfy the same
by a banquet on the night of May 2.
Said banquet will be enjoyed by the
winning half of the lodge at the ex
pense of the remaining members. The
lodge is at present in the midst of a
campaign for members and when 65
were present at the last meeting and
three applications were acted upon, a
member hit upon the scheme of a con
test to run six weeks, which should be
merely one of attendance. The plan
aroused little interest untif some one
suggested that the side which won in
point or attendance should "eat" at the
expense of the others. The magic word
had its effect Nand now every loyal
chopper is expected to be on hand each
night until the date set.

We Want Turn-overs;
Not Left-overs"
The above sign is
reported to liany; in
the. office of a live
"Western retailer.
Anyway, it is a big
business message in a
.Turned into every,
day English, it means
that what a retailer
makes depends very
largely upon how
often he turns his
stock and how much
business he can do on
the least amount of
Turning stock an
extra time is like
finding money, be
cause it does not take
additional investment
to make the extra
profit. The money
already -invested sim
ply works faster and
produces accordingly.
Over buying and
slow sellers are the
greatest enemies of
turnover. They tie up
profits on the shelves
or in the warehouse
and often absorb the
net gains produced by
quick moving lines.
The answer is to
stock quick moving
lines in quantities
just large enough to
take care of the trade
and then get behind
them with all the
sale push possible. -Quick
sales at small
profits and minimum
investment is the big
Idea in modern busi
ness. What has all this to
do with banking? Our
business is not essen- v
tially different from
others. 'We .have
much the same 'prob
lems to solve," but in
many cases have bet
ter facilities for gath
ering good ideas. We
would not be living
up to our idea of help
ful service to business
in general if we did
not emphasize those
ideas that have a di
rect bearing on com
mercial success. We .
believe we help our
selves most by help
ing others.
' For this reason, we
have made it a poinir
to study business con
ditions and problems
in Phoenix and the
Salt River Valley.
The results of "this
study aie yours for

are interested, Ave' will'
be glad to talk over
these matters , with

lowing the decision to call an J80.000
school bond election for this district,
came the news that the election is
off, owing to the fact that the dis
trict can only bond itself for four
per cent of. its assessed valuation
This would place the amount that
the district can ask for at 160.000.
which would be inadequate for its
building plans. The district can only
bond for 1123,000, and it already has
outstanding bonds of 41,000. The
trustees have decided to try and get
along with temporary structures. An-'
other motive for calling off the eleo
tiorf is due to a patriotic
iand a tight bond market, as th
supervisors coirid call an election if
the trustees so desired.

In, a rat's nest 'on the mountain top
where bits of his body were discovered I
a week ago--were found the shoes of
the murdered man by which he may be
identified as Arthur Gilmore. who dis
appeared from Phoenix on December 6
and from whom no word has been re
By the pair of shoes officers believe
they have positive knowledge that the
man was Gilmore, who had charge of
a hay baling outfit in Buckeye nd
whose strange disappearance has never
been solved.
Mrs. Gilmore believes that the man
who was shot in the back of the head
and left to die on the mountain was
her husband.
Firm in her belief of foul play, Mrs.
Gilmore has waited from day to day
for the word that his remains had been
found. Yesterday she saw the shoes.
Too overcome with emotion to look at
the skull and bones, she returned to
her home at 1117 East McKinley street
to ponder over the tragic death ,of the
man who was not known to have an
"I feel almost certain that the shoes
were those of my husband," said Mrs.
Gilmore as she talked over the dis
covery. "While it would be impossible
to positively identify them the style
and size were similar to those Arthur
always wore and when the shoe is
shaped to the foot, there are certain
little creases that are individual. AVhen
Arthur disappeared and we did not
hear from him there was only one thing
to believe and that was murder. He
was always kind, loving and thoughtful
and if he were alive he would be here
Mrs. ' Gilmore declared that every
man was his friend and the only mur
der motive might have been the money
on his person with which to pay off
the hay balers at Buckeye. She said
she could not bring herself to say that
the scant remains of the body were
those of her husband and had not de
cided last evening whether the funeral
should be held in his name or not.
It .was on March 9 that a sheep
herder, Ray Montano, foilnd the skull,
bones and a bit of a shirt on a moun
tain top four miles northeast of Hot
Springs Junction. The discovery was
reported to the county authorities and
Justice De Souza and deputies of the
sheriff's office left at once for the
scene Where they held an inquest. Not
satisfied with the meagre findings Jus
tice De Souza authorized John O'Brien
to make a thorough search. His report
was received here yesterday morning
when he forwarded the shoes, and a
buckle which were found in a rat's
nest. He notified the court that in ad
dition to the bullet that passed through
the head of the man who might have
been Gilmore, two other bullets were
found in the ground in the vicinity oi
the remains. From the bones the man
must have been the same height as
Gilmore was under contract with the
Southwest Hay and Grain company
when he dropped from view. Accord
ing to C. I Harclson, the company's
representative, he had $103 with which
to pay the hay balers when he left
the city. It had been his habit to pay
off the men and there is a theory that
one of the discharged workmen might
have committed the crime. Gilmore
had hired and fired the men for years
and that one bore him a grudge is
probable according to those who are
working on the case.
Mr. Harelson said that Gilmore had
no motive for leaving, but that he did
not care to state that he believed en
tierly in the murder theory.
