The War Work Fund The War Work fund is growing. The subscriptions for the Tempe district now total $1937.60. Over $3,000 still to be raised. With so much sickness about, it will greatly facilitate matters if people will hand in their subscrip tions at once and without further solic itations.

IN FRENCH HOSPITAL PHOENIX FINE FIELD FOR WHOLESALE TRADE These are great times in the mercantile world, especially in wholesale circles. The war is, officially, a thing of the past, and the wholesalers are looking forward to that period of re-construction so much talked about. In Phoenix, as in other trade centers of the United States, there will be a general shifting for the better from now on. There is much to do to bring the country back to a peace footing, after over four years of war, indirectly affecting trade of the United States, and eighteen months affecting this trade directly. Today is a day of thanksgiving, especially in wholesale lines. The war brought about curtailments in some lines and unbalanced overproduction in others, with the re sult that the wholesaler as a rule did not share so well as in peace times. The time is now at hand for every wholesaler to prepare for a rational and steady increase in profits, to prepare for a larger home consumption and a freer reign with which to drive along his business, to increase his territory and number of customers and business conditions generally. Phoenix is the center of one of the greatest commercial territories in the west and the Phoenix wholesalers are not slow in taking advantage of every opportunity to in crease the prestige of Phoenix as a trade center. I MESA, Nov. 13. There are now 103 patients in the Emergency hospital. Of these, eight arc seriously ill. There have as yet been no deaths in the hos pital. With the increase in the num ber of patients, the increasing demand for helpers occurs. The women of Mesa are responding to this call for service nobly, and the nurses in charge speak in the highest terms of the efficiency and willingness of the nurses' aids as well as those helping in the kitchen and office. There are other ways in which most of the people may help. A quantity of clean cotton, rags are badly needed. Also those who have cars may be of assistance by calling at the hospital at the hours of 8 a. m. and 2 p. m. At these hours the shifts change and a ride to their homes would be greatly appreciated by the workers. as the hospital is quite a long walk for most of them, especially after eight hours of standing.

Yesterday Mrs. Mildred Brewer of Phoenix answered the call for help and went over to Mesa to assist in solicit ing money for the fund. Her hasband is with the American expeditionary torces in rance.

Persons, Phone 114 GILBERT AGENCY Mrs. Schultz at Postoffice CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 13. The war relief drive is, not progressing as satisfactorily in Chandler as it might, Up to Wednesday night, the district had not raised one -half its quota of $4,000, and in fact had reached only the $1,500 mark. Despite the fact that peace has come, the relief work must continue just the same, as thousands of our boys will be in France for the next two years, and the bulk of those who went over from Chandler will be among this number. Some of our leading citizens, who could afford to give $15 to $25, have do nated sums ranging from $1 to $2.50, which is the sum expected of a person in straightened circumstances. If Chandler expects to do better than that and does not wish to be regarded as a piker town of the valley, she must open her pocketbook as generously as she has done in previous government war work drives. Six New Citizens The population in the Chandler dis trict has been increased by leaps and bounds during the last week. Dr. F. C. Jordan reports the arrival of half a doeen lusty citizens, as follows: A girl at the Ed Brockett home south of to wn ; a boy at the Emil Geizcl ranch cast of town; a boy at the home of Professor A. E. Edmonds: a boy at the home of Oris Holdren of the Chandler Garage; a boy at the ranch home of Fay Nor ton, and a boy at the ranch home of R. P. Sellers. A. E. Anderson Dies A. E. Anderson, an electrician at Goodyear, died Monday morning of in fluenza and pneumonia after an illness of less than a week. He was 35 years old anU leaves a wife' and little boy to mourn his loss. The family came here about a year ago and made hundreds of friends. He was beloved by. all who knew him and was one of the most efficient employes of the Southwest Cotton Co. His home was In Pomona, Calif. Mrs. Anderson will go to Color ado with her mother, who came here to aid in the care of her son-in-law. The funeral was held in the Mesa ceme tery Tuesday at 10 o'clock. Unconscious in Field C. TL Gordon, nresident of the Chandler Cotton Growers' Gin, was found unconscious in the field several days ago. He is better today. 'MICIDLERIS L CHANDLER, Aril Nov. 13 The in. fluenza situation in the Chandler dis trict has finally been brought under control, although there are several hundred cases here and at Goodyear. Due to the energeaic work of Mrs. F. C. Jordan, chairman of the local Red Cross, all the more serious cases have been placed in an improvised hospital in the school house, which was turned over for the purpose. There are about 30 cases in this hospital while the hos pital at Goodyear, a converted pool hall, has over 100 cases. Prompt sanitary measures in moving serious cases to the hospitals has been responsible for reducing the death rate materially, as only two cases have been reported this week, as against 15 for last week. Arnolds On Their Way Judge and Mrs. D. M. Arnold left early Wednesday morning for El Paso, Texas, via auto, where they will join the R. M.
