Attention is called to the fact that Arizona is far behind in its savings sinrrn quota, and much deiendem e is plac cl upon the willing ness of the financ ial institutions of the state lo bring the tcdal up to the re quired amount.

The bureau of standards has also been investigating optical glass and has recently erected a new kiln house with eight melting furnaces and suitable molding and testing equipment.

Sir William Willcocks is the celebrated hydraulic engineer who by his creation of the immense As souan dam across the Nile and by his irrigation works along the entire Kgyptian valley has doubled the agricultural area of that country. He has been one of the principal engineers in the irrigation work in India and Mesopotamia. The work in Mesopotamia has restored the fertility of that district which in olden times was the granary of the world. He is one of several brother. L serving England. Gen.

But the Bel gians are taking heart because of the way their brave troops are driving the Huns before the min Flanders. This Belgian-U. S.

The class is instructed one evening a week. A stripped chassis is used in il lustrating the details regarding the various parts. "You can't absorb mechanics in an evening," said Mr. Reuben in discuss ing the class work yesterday. "I am immensely pleased with the interest that is being demonstrated, and am gratified at the close attention paid to the lectures. I am going to turn out a class of women who will be able to qualify as motor experts. Among the women who have joined the classes, which are still open, are: Mrs. Donald Dunbar. Mrs. Svdney To Cotton Growers Ross, Mrs. Warren McArthur, Mrs. Kr nest Lewis. Mrs. E. J. Hennitt, Mrs. Barry Goldwater. Mrs. Sims EIv, J- Mrs. Walter Hintze, Mrs. W. S.

Then some one came forward. She was dressed in men's clothes, as many of the workers in the munition factories are, and she walked and talked like a man. But when her coarse laborer's hands touched the piano, everyone in the room stopped talking. She played with fine appreciation and a touch which many a pianist would envy. Southwest Cotton Company LITTLE CHANCE INGONQITIUNOF EPIDEMIC HERE Urgent Call -Made For Xurs es, Bedding And Clothing Needed In Caring For Manv Influenza Patients Xew cases of Spanish influenza re ported yesterday to the health officials of 1'hoenix numbered -6. which is four less than the number of new cases re ported the day before. There are 10 new cases at the emer gency hospital, most of which came Horn the fashion district, it was said.. Since the beginning of the epidemic in this city there have been 11 deaths. Many Articles Needed With 35 influenza patients at the emergency hospital, 30 at the auxiliary hospital at St. Joseph's and the many scattered about the county, there is a demand for articles that John F. Lo por, chairman of the Fhoenix chapter of Red Cross, believes many a woman will be glad to donate. Old blankets, old flannelette night gow ns, children's night gowns, bath towels, wash cloths, old muslin, and ar ticles for a new born baby are needed and the need is serious. In addition to these things a call has come for screens wilh which to partition off the pa'ients. Every article asked for by those in charge is essential, and even if responded to in a small way will be helpful to those who are collecting tho needed garments and bits of cloth. Two Babies Appear With nearly a hundred patients to be cared for and every hospital sanitation being observed, many gowns, towels and yards of old muslin are required. Old blankets are also requested and with housecleaning days on the calen dar, housewives will tmquestionably come across an odd blanket or two which can be spared for hospital ser vice. A baby born at the emergency hos pital day before, yesterday is practi cally without a garment, and another infant w hose mother was rushed to the hospital is also unsupplied. For these little folk and for the other supplies an appeal is made the public, and anyone willing to respond is asked to take their bit to the school administration building, 331 Xorth First avenue. Also Need Nurses Mr! Loper stated last evening that besides this need, there is the matter of providing a woman in the home where there is illness and do the housework or care for the children. Many are willing to pay for work of this kind and to pay well, but it seems almost impossible to get help. A nurse is out of the question. There are no nurses who are not on cases and we are hoping to solve the problem hy asking the women who are free to do this work to enroll at our office, at the school administration building. We had five calls today offering Just such employment." Girls in Kitchen The diet nursing which has been in charge of high school girls under the direction of Miss Beulah Wingfield of the nigh school and Miss Flo Jean Graham of the teaching staff of the grammar school will he conducted on a three-shift plan instead of two shifts, by Miss Amy Dinsmore of the Univer sity of Arizona volunteering to assist the local teachers. Mr. Loper said he had received many volunteers for office work from the Effective this date, tins company re-opens its ginning plants for tlie receipt of seed cotton. During the past week ranchers have been compelled to store cotton on their own properties and in the event this accumulation is rushed into our gins be yond our capacity properly to care for it, we shall again close our plants against deliveries. This company has 50 stands-in operation day and night at the present time. Wc expect to have 40 additional stands oper ating at an early date. 10 stands are prac tically installed at Mesa. 20 stands are in transit. Until the other ginning companies turn over to their capacity it will be impossible for this company to keep pace with cotton deliveries. BALES GINNED AT SOUTHWEST COTTON COMPANY GINS FROM DAY SHIFT OF OCTOBER 19TH UP TO AND INCLUDING NIGHT SHIFT OF OC TOBER 23RD ' Phoenix . . Tempe ... Chandler :. Tolleson . Glendale . Total It is inevitable that some growers will suffer loss and disappointment. This company believes it is bearing its full share of these losses and disappointments. Phoenix teachers who were of great as sistance in the present situation. "There are a number of cases and there are a few more every day, but so far we have not had many serious cases. There have been only eleven deaths since the epidemic and practically in every instance the fatal case was one who had tubercular tendencies. We have 35 patients at the Woman's club, 30 at St. Joseph's hospital, 10 at Glen dale and 7 at Gila Gend according to the day's report." Still Serious in State - More than 700 cases of influenza throughout the state, the increase for Wednesday, were reported to the state health office yesterday. Of these, 50 new cases were in Globe, where five new pneumonia cases have also devel oped, and seven more deaths have oc curred, making a total of more than 100 deaths in the Globe-Miami district dur ing the epidemic. "The situation is getting worse." said Dr. O. H. Brown, state health officer, last night,"' and the reason is that the people are apathetic, they do not seem to be fully roused to the necessity for actively combatting the spread of the influenza. "A thing that does not seem to be understood is the reason for closing i schools, theaters, and other places of public gathering. This was to prevent the epidemic spreading so fast as to get beyond control. It will undoubtedly run its course, and most people who are not naturally immune or are not ren dered immune by vaccination will have it, but public gatherings if allowed to go on in the usual manner, would re sult in the disease spreading so fast that there would not be enough well people to takeltare of the sick ones, and the mortality would be correspondingly high." Serious at Jerome The situation at Jerome still remains serious. Five deaths from influenza were reported from there on Wednes day. The town is tightly quarantined, no one is permitted to enter or leave the town except with special permis sion, and the need must be urgent. Only the necessary business is being con ducted. An urgent call came in late last night for two doctors for Jerome, as Dr. Carlson, w ho has been handling the sit uation there, is sick. Dr. Allen Williams has been sent to Yuma with two nurses as the situation there seems to be growing worse and they were short of help. Dr. Hughes, although tired out from his exertions in Flagstaff, has consent ed to going to Springcrville, where the situation is grave. o LI Mark C. Conn of the. United States housing commission will arrive in Thoenix this morning and meet with the state council of defense and the chamber of commerce committee at 9:30 to consider the housing situation and needs of Phoenix and the valley. Mr. Cohn is considered an expert in these matters, having been connected with the building department and housing commission of Los Angeles for years, and since the war has been in the employ of the government mak ing surveys all ofer the west, mostly in communities doing government work. He made extensive surveys and recommendations in Oakland, San Pedro and many other coast industrial communities, followed by recommenda tions as to methods to be pursued to improve the housing situations. The chamber of commerce commit tee that already has looked into the situation in this city consists of Webb Griffin, L. W. Fitzh'ugh. W. H. Grinds fall, J. F. Tracy, J. D. Halselea, H. W. Asbury, F. 1). Lane and H. J. Mann. COMES TO LOOK NTO HOUSING SITUATION It is the policy of this company to handle the existing situation with fairness to all. We are obliged under our crop loan con tracts to furnish gmning facilities to these customers. Ve will temporarily reserve a percentage of our storage for said cus tomers and for the cotton grown by this company. All the balance of our capacity will be turned over to other customers. At the present time this company has large quantieies of seed cotton in storage in temporary storage bins specially con structed upon its own ranches. We have refrained to the limit from shipping our own cotton to our gins.

PARTY In Letter To Theater Man-; agers Plea of ''Patriot ism" Is Worked To Get Some Free Advertising Here is the latest thing in political or partisan endeavor. K was hatched in the brain of some member of the Democratic Xational Committee. It proposes to enlist the moving picture houses of the nation in the democratic congressional campaign. But if the committee meets with no more favor able response than it has in Phoenix nothing will come of it. The plan is set forth in the following letter re ceived by the management of the Hip. A similar letter was received by the management of at least two other pic ture houses: Here is the Letter "80 Fifth Avenue, Xew York, " October 16, 191$. "Hip Theater, Phoenix Ariz. -Dear Mr. Manager: "At this critical period of our history supporters of the president are needed in congress. "I am sending you a lot of slides, which if shown in your theater at re peated intervals- from October -0 to Xovember 5, will aid in electing men who are in harmony with President Wilson. "These slides which are being sup plied by the Democratic Xational Com mittee, contain messages pointing out the necessity of unity of action in Washington. They should help in srystallizing a sentiment for the sup port of President Wilson as the Com-mender-in-Chief of the army and navy. "I trust that yon are in accord with this sentiment and that you will aid us in this patriotic work. "Thanking you for your co-operation, I remain, ' Cordially yours, FRED HAWLEY. Sends the Slides So sure was Mr. Hawley of the co operation sought that the slides ar rived, of even date with the letter.. They are beautiful slides. One of the managers, who says that he thinks he expresses the wntiment of all, regards this as a nervy propo sition. The picture houses of Phoe nix, as well as those of other parts of the country, have shown all slides re lating to war work or such as are of a patriotic nature, free of charge. But in his view the election of either demo crats or republicans to congress is' not properly war work, nor does he think that this is a proper call upon the patiotism of the picture houses. It is one thing to boost for the commander-in-chief of the army, and another, for the leader of the democratic party or any other party. - - IF YOU MISS YOUR PAPER I City subscribers who do not re- ) ceive The Arizona Republican j promptly should telephone the cir I culation department, phone 4331, I before 8 o'clock in the morninq ! and a copy will be immediately ! sent them.
