It is felt that some sort of an organ ization should be effected among milk dealers, here, as their problems can be greatly simplified by oranized ac tion. Among matters which the or ganization could take up and adopt uniform action on are those of milk deliveries and tests. Milk dealers, it is thought, can also work out more improvements in their businesses together, than if each works separately, and can combine to brill? the general state of the business in this city to a much higher degree of efficiency in colaboration than singly. o STOLKX I-urtl touring car, 1918 model, license number 1665, taken from in frort o I'hoenix Xational Bank on Xorth First Ave. on Monday, Dec. 16. $25 reward for return of car.

GOES QUIETLY TO FRONT AMERICAN' ARMY OF OCCUPA- TIOX, Saturday, Dec. 21. (By the As sociated Press). General John J. Per 6hinc made his first visit to the Rhine land today. He arrived in a private car which was parked at the edge of a town. It is doubtful if 1 per cent of the inhabitants of the place knew that the commander in chief of the American forces was in their midst. With the exception of General Dick- man, commander of the army of occu pation, not even the officers at the heaquarters of the third army were aware of General Pershing's presence. o- AMUSEMENTS - - DWIE THEATER WILL OPEN TON IGHT 6, Flowers Cowboy Has Narrow Escape During a horseback chase in the Triangle play "The Lcarnin' of Jim Benton" at the Plaza theater today, one ot the cowboys had a narrow es cape from death when his horse, which was leading the race went down on a curve, the entire cavalcade passing over both animal and rider.

Theda Bara at the Hip Theda Bara. vampire character ac tress of world renown, is paying her first visit to Fhoenix in many months, appearing at the Hip for today, and continuing through tomorrow in Wil liam J-ox's "Under the Yoke." The story tells of the struggle of love of a woman who doesn't care. She leaves no stone unturned that will interfere with her ambitions, and in the trulv remarkable Bara style "puts over" one of the greatest pictures of her career. The story is a remarkable one from many angles, and is made doubly so through the interpretation Theda Bara brings to the leading role. All day long yesterday, despite the ugly weath er, the ardor of hr admirers was not dampened, for they were out enmasse to welcome her again to the city. The offering is augmented by one of the side splitting Sunshine comedies, "A Son of a Hun", which isia riot of laughs from start to finish. Heart-grioping Film at Columbia. "Hearts of the World," which opened a week's engagement at the Columbia theater yesterday, is everything that is claimed for it and more. It is, indeed, David Wark Griffith's greatest film spectacle; a heart-gripping love story into which the master director has artistically weaved the great world war with all its liorror and death-dealing devices. David Wark Griffith has a distinc tively original method of doing thinas in the production of his big film. He doesn't burden his audiences witn "long Shots," as they are known in motion oictun.' parlance. Rather, he seems to cut them too short and in this manner licJds his audience at points, as it were. The heart throbs of this pxture are many, yet they are not overdenc. Manv times during the showing of the film the spectators are moved to tears as the most beautiful love story ever told unfolds. But Griffith in his own wav Is only too quick to make the heart light again. "Hearts of the World" is anything but a comic, but the humor ous situations, if singled out and nut in a film by themselves, would un doubtedly be a gigantic success in a comedy film. War views never before shown in America are included in this film, which was 18 months in the making While this is not a war picture, sev- PoiioisetiLias, Ri 4f Carnations Violets Sweet Peas Shasta Daisies and other seasonable flowers Potted Ferns and Flowering Plants ' Prices Reasonable We invite you to come in and see our beautiful store.

Lying flat on her back in the mud, on Xorth Sixth street, Mrs. G. Sharp was found by members of the city police force last evening emitting more or less musical sounds in a shrill minor key. The ma jor portion of the serenade is alleged to have been induced by natural good spirits set to vhe accompaniment of lemon extract The addition of the bars entirely spoiled the composition, the merits of which will be rehearsed in police court this evening. Promptly at 7 o'clock tonight the box office at the new Strand theater on West Washington street will turn Vi its lights and the handsomest theatre ever constructed in the State of Arizona will bid Phoenicians wel come with a sparkling urogram of picture presentation.

The comedy for the opening show is supplied by James Montgomery Flags and is selected from one of that famous artist's character drawings.
