Phoenix for its home. So Ion? as the
influenza' epidemic lives in Phoenix,
the influenza mask will be at its side.
Masks Appear Early
At K o'clock yesterday morning the
u-'l-r making it a misdemeanor to ap
pear in public without, a mask went
into effect. After that hour virtually
every man, woman and child in 1 lie
c ity donned a mask before leaving home
and wore them throughout the day.
Probably some persons went further
and wore them all night, too.
.Men met on a downtown street, and
looked at each other with suspicion,
then started on and looked around.
"Hello, Jim.'' one would say, and the
two would clasp hands. "Didn't know

masks were permanently discarded in

waiters clung to them religiously.
Brisk Gauze Trade
In the stores everyone wore masks,
though many women complained they
were stifling. This led to rumors that
some women had fainted in stores, al

gauze and ready-made masks was re
ported by practically all drug and dry
goods stores. In most cases the supply
was equal to the demand. Several
hundred masks were made by the local
branch of the Red Cross and distributed
to various drug stores, though the Red
Cross was hampered by a lack of work
ers. In addition, most of the drus:
stores selling masks had supplies of
their own. made by private individuals.
Thousands of masks were made at
home, and dry goods stores had a
heavy demand for gauze. No shortage
of gauze was apparent last night, and
it was generally thought there would
be plenty of hath material and masks
for the duration of the mask order.
Arrests Start Today
No arrests were made yesterday of
the very' few violators of the influenza
mask order. There might have been
some .who did not know of the new
rule until they reached the downtown
section, the officials said, and there
fore the first day went by without ar
rests. But beginning this morning, all vio
lators ot the mask order will be ar
rested. City Manager Thompson said
last night. There will be no excep
tions, it was insisted. Kvery person
who appears on the street must be
wearing a mask.
The police department will co-operate
with the citizens' committee today
in making the wearing of masks com
pulsory. It was announced that the
penalty for violation of this order will
be $100 fine or 30 days' imprisonment:
or both.
In City, 599 Cases
A grand total of 5i9 cases of influ
enza iu the city, including 109 in hos
pitals, was reported last night, an in
crease of one case over tho preceding
day. The. report of new cases, how
ever, showed decided improvement,
there being only 31, against Wl Tues
day. The seemintr increase was eanseH
quarantine yesterday, against 6. the
day before. In actual fact, the influ
enza epidemic improved.
Yhen Miss Celeste Thomas, a pretty
stenographer in the office of the sec
retary of state, failed to report for
duty last Saturday the secretary
staff arrived at the natural conclusion
that Miss Thomas had the flu. Her
continued absence, which brought no
word from the family concerning her
illness, caused alarm and yesterday
repeated inquiries brought out the
fact that the young woman had eloped
with John Quid, whose bride she be
came in Florence on Saturday after
The elopement was the most novel
one on record, in that the eloping
couple was chaperoned by the bride
elect's parents, Mr. and Mrs. ('. M
Thomas. Mr. and Mrs. Quid, left at
once for Miami where they will make
their home for the present.
Mrs. Quid, who is the niece of Dr.
John is Thomas, came here a year
ago from Michigan. An unusually de
lightful personality and pleasant man
ner has made her a legion of friends
during her twelve-months' stay ii
Phoenix. There were many expres
sions of surprise when word of the
marriage leaked out at the state house
yesterday, for none of her associates
had been taken into the secret.
Mr. Quid is an accountant whose
business will require his presence in
Gila county during the early winter
Th,at the teachers of public schools in
Arizona which have been closed for so
mffiy weeks on account of the epidemic
of Spanish influenza should receive full
pay, regardless of whether the schools
were open or not, is the opinion of C.
O. Case, state superintendent of public
instruction, and that ho also believes
that the laws of the state provide for
full payment of salaries, will be good
news to the many teachers who have j
been seriously inconvenienced through !
the closing of the schools and the non-
payment of salaries. j
With reference to the right of the j
teachers to receive their full pay for ;
the time the schools are closed because j
of the epidemic. Superintendent Case ;
makes tho following statement: j
Should Have Full Pay
"Hard conditions occasioned by an j
unusual epidemic have closed, for an !
extended period, tho public schools of 1
Arizona, and these conditions, over
which teachers of this state have no i
control, have suspended the services of j
the teacbers, at the same time holding
them liable to resumption o service at
any time.
"I feel in all justice to the teachers
that their full salaries should be al
lowed for the period during which the
schools may be closed on account of the
epidemic. It is also my opinion that,
as a matter of law, unless otherwise
stipulated by contract, that no deduc
tion can be made from teachers' sala
ries during the time the schools may be
closed on account of the epidemic.
No Desire to Cut Salaries
I am not aware that there is any
tendency on the part of school boards
m Arizona to deduct from the salaries
of the teachers because of the prevail
ing iiiiiucn.a; inn, wiieiuei ui noi. mis
tendency prevails, I deem it my duty
to slate my views in the matter.
"Dr. J. W. Crabtree, secretary of the
National Education association, has
written me advising that in no state
have teachers' salaries been increased
to keep pace with the increased cost of
living, that it is exceedingly difficult
for them to. make ends meet and that
tho National Education association is
advocating that teachers should suffer
no reduction of salaries for the loss of
time occasioned by the closing of
schools or be required to use their va
cations in making up time.
Fear Appropriation Loss
"Inquiries are coming to my office
regarding the eight months' school term
required by law, some, districts being
apprehensive of losing their next year's
appropriation of school moneys through
a possible failure of maintaining the
required term. As far as possible, every

tain, even this year, an eight months'
school term, but the law itself antici
pates and provides for even such ex
treme Abnormal conditions as are now
prevailing. While paragraph 2821, Re
vised Statutes of Arizona, 1913, pre
scribes that no apportionment of
school moneys may be made to any
school district in the state which has
not maintained a public school for at
least seven months during the preced
ing school year, the same paragraph
protects a school district in case of an
epidemic by also prescribing that no
district which is prevented by fire,
flood or prevailing epidemic from main-

Roads all over Arizona, with the exception cf the paved highways, are in pretty
bad shape. This condition is due some to lack of repair, which was for a time almost
nil, but the rains have temporarily ruined even those roads which were in fair condi
tion previously. However motorists ara confident that even though the rain has for
a time put the roads in bad condition, the highways will be freed from dust and will
present a better surface to the tires of automobiles after the sun drys up the worst
of the mud.
Travel has been curtailed to a great extent by the influenza. Local garages report
that very few, automobiles have been coming through from the east or from the
Pacific coast. Those few who are, going across country, are taking the Parker
cut-off in preference to all other roads to the coast.
We have what you want and are here to show you. Come in
