S. in the year Just el.-seil, hut it is safe to say that there were soma loyal and enthu siastic men and women working to the end to redeem the honor of Maricopa county working in the face of cer tainty that the county could not be put in the 100 per cent class. Mrs. Thomns li Campbell was one of these, Robert (Hob) K. Curry was a second, Ed Kudolph was a third, I. J. Johnson was a fourth, and a fifth was R. 1. Roper. Other members of the "Victory i.ti club" who have not yet reported were also out doing their best and the ultimate showing made will reflect their hard work. Just to show that it is never too late to accomplish results, 11. li Curry got another member for the "Limit club," the organization of men and women each of whom has purch sed the limit in W, S. S. allowed by the government, a limit of $1,000. C. 15. Laird is the purchaser, and ho bought granddaughter. Alma- Asenuth Alkire, a "limi".'' collection, and the balance to another member of the family. Mr. Laird resides at 129 Kast Palm Lane. Arizona as a whole is believed to have made a good finish, judging from reports from the various banks and postoffiees of the slate. Many thought that they had to fill out Thrift and Baby Bond cards in order to save what they had invested, and so hustled to purchase for that reason. As a mat ter of fact, there was no such need of course, because the stamps are just as good as gold, whether the card holding them has all the spaces filled or not. 1 IIIIICIPTIID urau un i. e OP EXPLOSIVES TO THIS CiTY TO REST Fl. K I nib Minn of the labor division (r the war department, more directly connected with the manufacture of ex plnsivrr, is in the city with Mrs. Hol'.e tnan rem printing from the. effect of a most strenuous period. Ilia later work has been the demobilization of the powder plants which sprang up during the war. "Sprang up," is the right ex pression ; they did not grow. Speaking yesterday of the plant at Nitro, West Virginia, which is typical of the others, he said that in three months a cornfield had been turned in to a city of more than 20,000. The plant was established in a bend of the Ken awha river fifteen miles from Charles ton. Within a very short time the buildings of the plant extended four and a half miles along the river. The housing facilities were made to keep pace with the growth of the plant. Three thousand comfortable bungalows were put up at the rate of one every seventeen minutes, all complete, in cluding furniture. An excellent sewer system was installed and residents were afforded all modern conveniences. At the time of the signing of the armistice the plant was producing.daily 675,000 pounds of smokeless powder. When the false report of the signing of the armistice reached Nitro, the 20. 000 men employed there knocked off work and engaged in rejoicing. That night thousands of them went to Charleston to participate in a celebra tion and that night the administration building at the plant was burned, evi dently set on fire by an alien enemy. Everything was destroyed, office furni ture, including 1,300 typewriters. By 7 o'clock the next morning the debris had been cleared away by thousands of men and by 10 o'clock the walls and pillars were rising under the ministra tion of bricklayers. Within three days the building was complete, with new furniture and with 1,300 typewriters which had been commandeered in Cin cinnati, Columbus and other cities.

Robert C.lenn, will be ad mitted into the evidence was the ques tion that: arose at the preliminary hear ing of the woman charged with man slaughter. Only one witness had been called to the stand yesterday when the s'ate called Henry Larson, a stenograpner of the county prosecutor's office, -md a.sked him to read the statement made by Mrs. Glenn on Christmas night Counsel for the defense held that the statement was not admissable. It was claimed that County Attorney L,. M. Laney had first to prove the stat.cn ent voluntary and that he must also show that Mrs. Glenn had been informed of her legal rights that anything she might say would be used against her. Both the state and defense will sub mit authorities on this point which will be decided by .Tustjce De Souza at 1 :S0 o clock Thursday afternoon. Mrs. (Ilenn is beginning to show the strain of worry and confinement. She was ghastly pale when she entered the court room yesterday. Her eyes, swol- j len by constant crying, were downcast i and her veil tightly drawn only drew! attention to the pallor. She wore a! blue taffeta tailored suit and a small black velvet hat. Her hands were never at rest and exhibited the nervousness she felt. Dan Stjepanich. a dinner guest at the Glenn home, 511 North Ninth street, on the night of the tragedy, told the story of the shooting, not varying in any detail from the tale told at the in quest when the coroner's jury returned a verdict of justifiable self-defer.se. Stjepanioh declared that alter a de lightful dinner, a few hours of music and dancing, he, Glenn and two others engaged in a friendly game of poker. Mrs. Glenn passed behind her husband's chair and spoke to him, said the wit nesses, who declared that Glenn swing his arm backward, striking a vicious blow. Mrs. Glenn lift the room and, returning, stood in the doorway ,un in hand. She raised the weapon end fired at Glenn as lie arose from his chair. At the conclusion of Stjopanich's testimony the. state attempted to Intro duce the statement made by May Glenn at police headquarters after the shooting. Kn route to take up his duties as vo cational advisor, R. Thane Cook, of the rehabilation division of the federal board of vocational education, arrived in the city yesterday from San Fran cisco. Mr. Cook, who was formerly principal of the local high school, is on his way to Prescott to make a survey of the military patients at Fort Whipple. Mr. Cook will put into force in this state the provisions of the Smith-Scars act, pertaining to the rehabilation of wounded or disabled soldiers and sail ors. Asked if a disabled soldier could profitably be taught a new trade, he replied : "Yes he can. if he will take the train ing. Hundreds of thousands of wound ed and otherwise disabled men have been trained for new occupations in Europe and Canada. What Europe has done, America can do. "Our congress on June 27, 1918, de cided by a unanimous vote that, dis abled American sailors and soldiers shall have a chance to be retrained for civil life, and appropriated $2,000,000 for this purpose. This money, and more if necessary", is to be spent in re training all incapacitted men in the military branches for civil life. It is to pay for travel for tuition, for board, j for lodging and for the other necessary expenses of those who take the courses provided. "Congress has done more than pro vide for retraining. It has also pro vided that those who come under the provisions of this act, and who arc honorably discharged, may get com pensation. This compensation may be total or may be partial, according to the extent of a man's disability. This is measured by the disabled man's pres ent earning power, compared with his previous earning capacity. "If his disability docs prevent him from returning to employment without training, and he elects to follow a course of vocational training provided by the federal board, the course will be fur nished free of cost and he will also be paid, as long as the training lasts, a monthly compensation equal to the sum which he is entitled under the War Risk Insurance Act, or a sum equal to his pay for his last month of active ser vice, whichever is greater. In no case will a single man or a man required by his course of instruction to live apart from his dependents receive less than $65 per month, exclusively of the sum paid his dependents. In the case of a man living with his dependents, no less than $75 per month, inclusive of the amount given his dependents, will be paid him. "If a soldier has sustained an injury which does not prevent him from re turning to employment without train ing, and he elects to follow a course of vocational education offered by the federal board, the course, will be fur nished free of cost t ohim. In addition, the compensation will be paid, but no allowance will be made to his family." The federal official plans to leave this morning for Prescott in order that the survey may be accomplished as ex peditiously as possible. He is unde cided as to the length of time he will be required to remain in the mile-high city, but at the conclusion of his work there will return to Phoenix for a visit before leaving for his headquarters in San Francisco. o 19 19 BETTER, braver, kindlier and more true, the new year comes to us more new than any new year ever came before.

BDI) TOG 1 El Beginning the New Year with a thought of the suffering overseas, Mrs. Sims Kly announced last evening that a drive for clothing for the Belgians would be inaugurated at once. The call for clothing for men, women and children has been received by Mrs. Ely. in charge of Belgian relief in this state, from Herbert Hoover who urges that it be given immediate attention. There will be no effort on the part of the committee to make over the gar ments ;ill that is asked is that the articles be clean and ready for ship ment. The garments will be collected in the warehouse at the rear of the school administration buildin.? or by the committee members. The Red Cross is at present engaged ill making refugee garments and the collection of old clothes for the Belgians will materially aid the future activities of the association. The need for all sorts of clothing is so great that there is no especial call for any particular article and all ages and sizes are in de c ram o L5 TO ill BE T01VI0RR0W County olifcers elected at the gen eral election in November will take over their offices on Thursday accord ing to an opinion handed down by L. M. Laney, county attorney. Mr. Laney bases his opinion on para graph 2508 "Civil Code 1313: All county and precinct officers for whose elac tion and term of office no other provi sion is made shall be elected at the general election in the year 1314, rnd every two years thereafter and shall hold the office or offices to which they are elected for the term of two years from the first day of January next aft er election and until their successors are qualified." There was much discussion about the court house yesterday as to when the officers should lake over their du ties, a number holding with the attor ney general that the newly elected should not assume the responsibility of their positions until Monday, Janu ary 6. At midnight. Sheriff Montgomery and his staff, which had been sworn in during the course of the day by Lyman La Tourette, former undersherif f. took over the duties of their office. During the past week Montgomery has not missed a day from the sheriffs office and yesterday declared that he had re ceived invaiuable aid from Sheriff Wilky. "In order that I might familiarize myself with the work of the off .ee. Sheriff Wilky allowed me the privilege of working with him and my staff has received the same help from Wilky's deputies. Their courtesy and co-operation has been most helpful and we certainly appreciate the kindness jmd business like aid they have rendered," said Montgomery. ACADEMY OF DANCING Formerly Wickersham's THURSDAY SOLDIERS AND SAILORS NIGHT Uniformed Men Free Admission FRIDAY NIGHT HIGH SCHOOL AND ALUMNI DANCE H BUREAU FRIDAY Details regarding the formation of a tratfic bureau to handle questions re garding railroad rate situations in the state will be discussed and adopted at a meeting of the committee in charge of this important matter, on Friday afternoon next. Notices of this meet ing were mailed out yesterday, by Roy S. Goodrich', chairman. At this meeting the cost, method of operation and financing of the project will be considered. Each member of the. organization committee has been asked to prepare a tentative outline embracing all of these elements in an ticipation of this meeting. Providing suitable arrangements can be made, a concrete plan will be fully worked out at this time. The proposal for the installation of the bureau will be submitted at the earliest opportu nity to a committee of shippers and jobbers in order that, if approved, it may be organized with the least pos sible delay. The decision to organize a bureau of this nature came with the announce ment that the railroad administration was contemplating the standard class rate system, under which Arizona would be designated as Inter-Mountain territory. This classification, accord ing to shippers, by virtue of the high; freight rate it would entail, would have the effect of paralyzing a large portion of the industries of the state and would effectually destroy the jobbing interests. GIRL IN LOVE STOPS TRIAL IN COURT (Continued from Page One) now serving a prison term, from the socialist party. Berger explained the difference be tween the L W. W. and the socialist party. The former, he said, was an economic organization which believed in direct action and sabotage to achieve its aims. The socialist party, he ex plained, was a political party that stood for compliance with law and peaceable means. Socialists, ho saidfcelie'ed in Coming!
