FOREIGN LEGION'S HERO VISITS HOME imiiniii.ri wm w Oscar Mouvet. Oscar Mouvet of New York, onft of the few survivors of the foreign legion of France which has been re duced from its original strength of 60,000 to a bare 2,500, was the only non-commissioned American officer in the foreign legion. He has been in the thick of the fight, receiving wounds at Champagne, the Somma. and Verdun, nun project DELIGHTS MEN FBI CAPITOL FOOD ECONOMIZING NOT PRACTICED AS EI MEIHOPED Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, May 10. Rapid re adjustment of business and industry to meet specialized war demands and abandon activities not contributing to the war, is shown ijy the federal re serve board's monthly summary of business conditions, issued today, based on reports from all federal re serve districts. One report said the transition "is being accomplished with little loss of momentum and business generally may De saia to De Droadening and set tling on a satisfactory basis." A note of concern is expressed, however, over the slowness of con sumers to economize on food, clothing and other materials needed for main tenance of the army. Desnite the bisr government requirements, demand from usual sources for goods of all kinds continues stronger than supply, and consequently the mercantile and general business situation is described as "one of intense activity with war needs receiving first consideration." Labor Supply Lags The labor suddIv continues miwh below the demand and the scarcity of wommen is new increased by farmers' needs. The trend of wages is upward nearly everywhere and few lahnr riia- turbances are reported. Construction work and all lines of business, depending on it are suffering severely as a result of governmental curtailments. Bank rlea ally increasing and money rates con tinue iiriii. Conditions noted by districts include: Kansas City Fair, building active; crop conditions improves general busi ness. Dallas Building activity greater, crop conditions excellent, farm labor scarce, wages In all branches ad vancing. San Francisco General business satisfactory. Lumber business cur tailed by freight embargoes. WOMEN GUARDS ON NEW YORK SUBWAY (New York Journal.) Nine women guards are at work on the Brooklyn subway. When they made their appearance for the first time a few days ago the public for whom they opened doors and called out stations was more fussed by the innovation than they were. They did their, work with poise and dis patch earned their twenty-two cents an hour and immediately became a New York institution. Their first test couldn't have been more trying. They took their posts at the start of the rush hour and stuck until it ended. The frantic thousands spilled past the uniformed figures at the door of the car so feverishly that few. of them realized until the river was being crossed that the lower part of the guard's uniform was a plain dark skirt. ' It takes more than that to keep a Brooklynite's face out of his after noon paper very long, however. The crowd scrutinized the apparition for a taioment, noted that she understood "SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE" Mel Fickas INSURANCE SURETY BONDS Business Conducted by MRS. MEL FICKAS 17 North First Ave. , Phoenix, Arizona From a vast wilderness of swamp and forest to a scene of comfortable homes and prosperous fields of al falfa, grain and cotton is the trans formation that has taken place in a short time in the Yuma valley, accord ing to C. M. Zander, chairman of the state tax commission, who with Charles R. Howe and Rudolph Kuchler the other members of the commission, returned on Monday from their an nual trip of inspection that this timo took them to Yuma county and to some of the northern Counties of the state. "The farm lands under the Yuma project present the most remarkable example of development in agriculture that has occurred anywhere in the state in the past year," added Mr. Zander. "Today, what a short time ago was only a waste, is a picture as fair as the human eye ever rested upon. "In the center of this valley is the new town of Somerton, with more than 1,000 people and boasting of two banks, many stores, a cotton gin and all the other industries of a thriv ing agricultural community. New business blocks are going up on every hand and residential districts are be ing laid out. This activity undoubted ly will continue until the town has a population of at least 3,000 people. "A short time ago the town of Gad son was laid out in the middle clear ing of a trackless forest that reached to the Mexican line. This town is six miles from the line, and the forest has been moved back almost to the line. Gadson also is showing remarkable growth. Yuma valley this year will grow about 40,000 acres of cotton. As sessor Ming declares tiiat when the state sees the total assessment of Yuma county this year it will realize that the county is 'some pumpkin." "At a hearing of the Swansea mines held at Yuma it developed that the leasing companies were about to build a concentrator on the property with the hope that this would prove the solution to the successful opera tion of the mine. "The commission found Mohave county a little backward at this time but, however, with splendid prospects for the near future. While there is no boom at Oatman, yet that camp is on a more substantial basis today than ever in its history. The United East ern is producing at 100 per cent, and recently the Tom Reed opened up an ore body that gives promise of being the largest body yet found in that property. "Chloride at this time is not nearl as active as has been, yet the recent acquisition of the Tennessee mine by the Schuylkill people has assured the resumption of production in these two splendid properties. "Mohave county probably has the largest deposits of molybdenum of any locality in the North American conti nent. In the Leviathan ledge there are shutes of ore that are 20 feet wide and averaging 1 per cent of molybden um, while considerable parts of it are almost the pure metal. This ore carries 1 per cent copper also, and on this account it has heretofore been handicapped on account of the ex cessive charge for separation. Re cently the company has perfected a process for the separation of these two metals, and now the company feels so confident in respect to the property that they intend to rebuild and enlarge the present concentrator on the property. "While there, the commission learned that the board of supervisors of that county was working out a new highway that will bring ail the over land traffic from Utah and Los An geles by way of Kingman and at the same time divert part ot it to Phoe nix. The state of Utah has com pleted a highway from Salt Lake to St. George. St. George is about nine miles from Littlefields, Arizona, The route to be followed will probably come down the Grand Wash, past the Grand Gulch copper mine, to tne Col orado river, and from the Colorado river through the Hualapat valley, or the Sacramento valley, to Kingman. "This route, of course, would neces sitate a bridge across the Coloraai. nver to cost about $75,000, the ap proximate cost of each of the two bridges at Yuma and Topoc. Aside from the travel that would be di verted into Arizona which is anxiously waiting to come this way, this road would open an empire with vast re sources north of the Grand Canyon which is a part of the state of Ari zona, From Kingman to Phoenix the road already is constructed be tween Kingman and Yucca, and be tween Yucca and the Bill Williams river the road now is being opened up by Mohave county. When this road is thrown open, it will be far superior to the road going up the Colorado river from Parker to Needles on the California side. It also will open up districts rich in mineral possibilities which are now being developed.- "In Yavapai county the Hassayampa Farms company are starting into the year with a full reservoir at Lake Watson, a short distance out of Pres cott. Farm lands under this project lie on the rolling plains adjacent lo Jerome Junction. The alfalfa and grain waving in the spring breezes is another striking illustration of the wonders that are wrought by water in Arizona. This project is only par tially completed. It contemplates the construction of two more reservoirs in addition to the one now built in Granite Creek one in Willow Creek and one in Lynx Creek both of which will have a greater capacity than Lake Watson. There is no doubt that the day is not far distant when Pres cott will be the. capital of an agricul tural community as well as a mining center. Yavapai county will be one of the biggest counties in the state this year as their mining industry, is still growing." The tax commission will leave Phoe nix again on Monday night to com plete their inspection of the northern counties of the state. Coconino, Nav ajo and Apache will be visited. her business, voted her all right and resumed its reading. . . The first woman guard commis sioned was Miss Etta Fawcett. On her first trip Miss Fawcett did not once shout "Watch your step," prob ably because the new subway has no gaps between platform and train wherein a traveler may be engulfed. One of Miss Faweett's passengers asked her how she liked her job. "Fine!" she said, permitting her dark eyes to rove , neither to right nor left. "What were you doing before?" "Selling tickets on the 'L.' Before that I was a saleswoman in a de partment store." "You like this as well?" "Much better I get twenty-two cents an hour." . "Is it hard work?" "Not at all It's E,"and.''
