THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 29, 1913 Holiday Week Brings Much Gaiety to San Marcos Hotel Th past week at the San Marco.-r. Chandler, has been pleasantly filled with holiday gaiety. On Christmas Kvt them -was a Christmas tree in the lobby which wa the center of the festivities of the, evening, which included Christ mas stories from Dr. C. C. Campbell. H. S. Darlington and W. H Robinson. The stories were followed by the distribu. lion of presents by the master of cere monies of the evening, A. C. P.artletL What the Rifts lacked in intrinsic value they made up in aptness.' Holly and mistletoe boutonnic.res. refreshments and a ruddy but innocuous punch bowl all helped out in creating the Christ mas atmosphere. The notable occurrance on Christmas night was a dinner given by Mrs. :t. tiolden Donaldson and her daughter, Miss Ruth Donaldson. The table aec- orations included a Christmas tree, with poinsettias to add a scarlet notv to the color scheme. The dining guests were Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Oxnard. Jr Mrs. Kirk Newell, Miss Cornelia Ross, A. C. Carson, W D. Thornton, R. Skiff Sheldon and Dr. A. J. Chandler. Also on Christmas night Prof. H. D. Evans was host at dinner to C. Putnam, E. L. Warren, H. V. Brooks, J. E. Thompson and m Elder, of the &v ans School. Miss Rena Maitland on Christmas Eve presided charmingly at a dinnei, her guests including Miss Dorothy Robinson. Robert Merrill and H. C. Merriman. The Red Letter hours, perhaps, of the Christmas week were those that in cluded the dinner dance on Friday night. It was the first dance of the season, and besides the regular guests of the hotel, as is always the case with the San Marcos dances, there were a number of society people over front Phoenix and Mesa. The dinner was quite up to the San Marcos' most ex cellent standard, the music was good and the ladies' gowns beautiful, and quite beyond the powers of a mere man to describe. Among the recently arriving guests are Mrs. Major Burton J. Mitchell, ot Niagara Falls, and her small son. Mas ter "Skip" Mitchell, who spent part of the winter at the hotel two years ago. Dr. C. G. Campbell, too, also a recent arrival at the hotel, who came with his friend H. S. Darlington, of Philadel phia, is making his second visit to Ari zona this winter. His first visit, how ever, was made just seventeen years ago when he had the distinction of lay ing out the first golf links in Arizona, east of Central avenue and north of the old town of rhoenix, now included in the city limits and its exact location forgotten perhaps, even by the golfing pioneers who played on the links.

As conditions differ in the several localities, it is up to each sys tem to work out the best plan for their individual needs. Those pupils who start school at the opening on Monday and work will be promoted to the nt-xt grade in June. In order to do this, in day will be lengthened 30 -minutes ,ni the recesses shortened 10 minutr. There will be no school on Saturdays. icnoni ON TIE SOUTH SIDE The Mesa grade schools nnrl th Mesa Union high school will open for work at 9 o'clock Monday morning, De cember 30. The buildings have been thoroughly cleaned and fumigated. In additio nto this, the Franklin building has been partially repainted, retinted, and the woodwork varnished, so that ii is in nrst-ciass condition. In fact, every precaution has been taken to provide for the best possible sanitary conditions in each building. as a runner assurance of maintain ing good health conditions amnne the school children, the board of Mesa dis trict No. 4 has secured the services Of a skilled nurse. Miss Nellie Wilcox. who will give her entire attention to tne health of the children of the schools. The school day will be extended 15 minutes in the lower grades and 30 minutes in the upper grades. School will be held all day Saturday during the cooler months. The time devoted to certain subjects will be minimized and additional time devoted to more es sential subjects. The method of pre senting subject matter will be intensi fied in order to reduce the volume of work required. In certain subjects the non-essential material will be elim inated and the time devoted to the es sentials of the subject. By these means, the school officials believe it possible to make up the entire year's work. However, they urge upon the school children the necessity of beginning work immediately in order to accomplish the work required. SGHDOlSOFGILBERT MESA. Dec. 29. Making the esti mate from sources of information at the various.towns of the southside, it is probable that about 20 per cent of the acreage on this side of the Salt River, has been marketed. v There has been a very considerable and annoying delay to the growers by reason of the late start of the gins, and the consequent holding of the cotton in the seed. This delay, however, appeared unavoidable and evidently was more bother to the ginners than to any one individual grower. Now the three gins at Mesa and those of the other towns are turning out cotton as fast as is possible for them to do so, and the con gestion is being gradually relieved. Cotton is selling as rapidly as the farmers are offering it, at around 56 cents for basis extra, A number ot bales have been consigned by Mesa growers to the Peoples bank of Boston, but by far the greater portion has been utKen oy local buyers. While the price offered is naturally a disappointment to the grower, yet where cotton has been grown with any regard to the expense of producing the crop, farmers say there has been u profit to them on the year's work The amount sold has served to lessen and in many instances entirely remove the stringency that has existed with many individuals because of the long growing season and the late marketing of their crop, and now the remainder of their cotton will be sold with the satisfaction of knowing that the profit end of the season is here. A very great deal ot interest is mani fested in the various conferences re garding probable plans for better mar keting of the cotton, and the efforts be ing made to secure a more active and steadier demand for the staple. There seems little disposition to belittle the advantages of cotton growing in the valley, and the average farmer is opti mistic over the coming of a time when this wonderful product will receive the price justified by its value and the skill and labor required for its successful growth. at 9:45 o'clock.

Clemens at Mesa Wednes day recalls the fact that he was an uncle of the late Mark Twain, the famous humorist, and that t"he Mesa man spent a number of years with him when he lived in Idaho, from where he catne ten years ago to the Salt River valley. William J. Clemens was born in Arkansas and left there 41 years ago for the northwest, where he amii-ssed considerable wealth. When he emrie to Arizona .he purchased large tracts of land, and up to a year ago resided on his two sections northwest of Chand ler. In addition he has large holdings near Florence and extensive livestock interests. He was 69 years old. The funeral was held Saturday after noon at; 2 o'clock at Mesa, having been postponed to await the arrival of his son, William Jr., attending college in Missouri. The other children are Earl and Twain, named after Mark Twain; Berry, who lives at Chandler and Lil lian of Idaho. Mr. Clemens was twice married and his wealth is estimated at $1,250,000. "Hearts of the World" in Mesa "Hearts of the World." David W. Griffith's undisputed masterpiece as all the world has conceded, is not a war story or a propaganda picture, but a love story, pure and simple. And never was "the sweetest story ever told" framed in such a setting. The grim, gaunt spectre-haunted, war-ridden fields of France are the scenes of its action and its charming love episodes were played to the music of English, French and German cannon. Noyon, the picturesque French town where the American boys fought was chosen by Mr. Griffith as the locale for his story and all his players were taken there in order to get scenes that would fit with his sense of reality. Dorothy and Lil lian Gish and Robert Harroni as well as the producer, endured many dangers. They were under shell fire eleven dif ferent times, once for eight hours.
