I'pon ,aid petition having been found sufficiently signed, this commis sion was appointed to investigate said specific highways for the purpose of recommending the improvement there of. Before they were able to report the result of their investigation or to make any recommendation to your honorable body for the improvement of such highways, restrictions were placed upon the expenditures of public funds by the federal government, thus delaying further progress by the com mission until this time. Two members of this commission have resigned, and their places were not filled until recently, when the commission organized and elected lOugene Hackett a.s chairman and A. I". Jones as secretary, and thereupon immediately proceeded to investigate the specific highways for the improve-, ment of which the above motioned pe tition was filed, as appear on the map accompanying -such petition, and in connection therewith did Investigate the main public highways of said county other than those shown in said petition, and as a result of said in vestigation we have caused to be pre pared a map showing the public high ways of this country, which in the judgment of this commission the greatest public necessity and conven ience require to be improved, and we do hereby find and determine that the public highways shown upon the map accompanying this report, which in clude certain of said specific high ways for the improvement of which netition has been filed as aforesaid, as well as other main highways he im proved by the construction of hard surface highways of varying widths as the needs of traffic require, and we do estimate the cost of such im provement at four million, five hun dred thousand ($4,300,000.00) dollars. ! This commission finds and deter mines, and it is our opinion that the improvement of the roads thereby submitted is of such a nature that the roads theretofore improved from the funds derived from the sale of bonds of special road district Number One, as also from special road district Number Two, be deemed a part of such general road improvement, and this commission has included the roads of said special road districts on the map of the highways proposed to be improved. We estimate 1hat the cost of con structing, re-surfacing, repairing and widening of the roads in special road district Number One, as appears on the map accompanying this report, will cost fifty thousand ( $")0.000.00) dollars. We estimate that the cost of con structing, resurfacing, repairing and widening of the roads in special road district Number Two. as appears on the map accompanying this report. 50 USED PIANOS IN UPRIGHTS OR GRANDS, IN EXCHANGE OR PART PAYMENT ON STANDARD MAKES OF 0N0GRAPHS OR PLAYER PIANOS The demand is good for Used Pianos.

We find that no bonds have been issued for improvements in special road district Number Three, and no hard surface surface roads have been constructed in special road district Number Three, and that the roads in this district, shown upon the accom panying map. should be improved with hard surface highways. That from uch reliable information furnished from those in authority and best able to give such information, the commission estimates the amount of money which it can receive from fed eral and state aid in the construction of a portion of the highways shown on the map accompanying this report, at five hundred thousand (J'iOO.000.00) dollars to be raised by the issuance of bonds of this county. We therefore find that the question of wether or not bonds of this county be issued to the amount of four million ($4,000, 000.00) dollars for the purpose afore said, should be submitted to the lualified electors of Maricopa county, in accordance with said Chapter 31, and the acts supplemental and amendatory thereto. It is our opinion that your honorable body can provide that, such bonds shall be issued, from time to time, in such amounts as diligent prosecution of the work requires rather than issu ing all such bonds at one time. We feel that a considerable saving in the interest of the county would result thereby. Respectfully submitted. HGHWAY COMM.SSIOX. Maricopa County. Arizona. El'CEXE HACKETT, Chairman. A. F.

Relief within a few hours was forecast by the weather bureau tonight from the March blizzard which swept the city today, paralyiing harbor traffic, break ing, many telegraph and telephone lines, and causing traffic disturb ances. Lashed by a gale that rose at times to a velocity of 90 miles an hour and lost in swirling snow, the Norwegian bark Yola and the Standard Oil bark Socony, were driven ashore .in the harbor. Two men caught a half mile off shore in ft small boat were drowned when the craft capsized. Many steamers due today, including the troop ships Santa Ana and Santa Olivia, were compelled to delay entry into the harbor. Neither the Santa Ana nor the Santa Olivia has reported by wireless since the storm broke. DEAL PRO LEADS GOLFERS PIXEHURST, X. C March 28. Patrick J.

Have Definite Plan In commenting on this matter Mr. Heard stated: "la approving federal aid projects in the various states the Fed eral Good Roads Bureau, acting for the secretary of agriculture, have a definite and practical plan of co-opertion, and are requesting each state to present, without delay, a definite, statewide, five-year road building program. A program planned to connect in the most practical manner, the various sections of the state, and also planned to tie in most effectively with the federal aid road building program of adjoining states, resulting, when completed, in the development of a genuine national highway system. "The whole plan is to encourage prac tical, business-like and modern con struction of permanent roads, state wide in character, that the taxpayers, whether federal, state or county may be convinced that the road program will give them the maximum amount of permanent, serviceable, well-drained roads at the minimum of expense. "Fortunately Maricopa county is ex ceptionally well -situated to avail of her portion of the federal monev made available under these acts for expendi ture within Arizona on a 50-50 basis, by the fact that the county highway com mission has now matured its plans and are ready, with the co-operation of the board of supervisors, to at once present to the people a constructive plan of county highways. Ready to Co-operate "The state highway department are evidently prepared to co-operate to the fullest extent with the Maricopa county highway commission, and in addition to the co-operative work with the govern ment now under way on tffe Tempe road, propose to extend this co-opera tive state government highway into Mesa. "The project for co-operation with the government on the Phoenix-Yuma highway from Agua Caliente to Ante lope hill, involving an expenditure of about $200,000 of federal money, has already been approved, I understand, by the secretary of agriculture and it now seems possible, with the joint co operation of the federal government. the state highway department and the Maricopa county highway commission. to utilize at least several hundred thousand dollars of the money which win De Maricopa county s share of fed eral funds on the construction of the much needed permanent highway from fnoemx tnrougn tne iiuckeve vallev. thus taking a long step in the direction of making this a permanent transcon tinental highway. "Fortunately, Maricopa countv. through its highway commission is pre- parea to act. ine commission assure the people of a straightforward, ad ministration free from any mixture of politics or loose business methods and 1921 $342,521.79 To Julv 1st $1,027,565.36 $1,370,087.15 MNTEERSTO RELIEVE A .E.F. 1 RAILROAD PROBLEM Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, March 2S. An im mediate call for 50,000 volunteers for service in Europe has been prepared by tne war department and probably ui ne puujisnea tomorrow. As an incentive to enlistment, the men will be offered early duty in France as a relief for men in the expeditionary forces who wish to return home. War department officials expressed confidence that no trouble would be experienced in raisins the 50.000 men or an even greater number if it should be found that additional increments were necessary. The bulk of the men are expected to come from recently discharged troops who after a short 'vacation" as civilians, desire to re turn to army life. Another incentive expected to have a decided effect on the recruiting campaign is looked for among the men who, after having been drafted and trained, were prevented from going overseas by the armistice. Opportun ity to see service in Germany, it is thought, will lead many of these to enlist. A number of officers, probably 10 or 12. will be sent overseas with each indrement of 1000 men leaving Camp Mcvie. These will be used at the concentra tion camp to give the preliminary training necessary to whip the men into casual organizations and to make the required examinations. On ar rival in Europe, they will take the place of officers who are eligible for discharge. Republican A. P. Leased Wire CHICAGO, March 28. Walker D. Hines. who made his first official visit to Chicago today as director general of railroads, speaking at a press clnb dinner, said the time is propitious for solving the railroad problem with the public more nearly appreciative of the service of the lines than ever before. He said the expenditures required of the government for operation of the roads would not show as great a loss as many people suppose. "While the world has been moving rapidly toward the eight-hour day."' said Mr. Hines. "the issue came more quickly with the war. The govern ment had to follow a policy of uniform ity with respect to wages and hours. Higher wages and improvements would have come anyway." The purchasing power of the dollar having been greatly diminished, he said, it followed that the railroads' dollar suffered as much as any other dollar. The 2,000.000 railroad employes, or a very large part of them, had been paid low wages, he said, and the gov ernment was confronted with and had met the difficult problem of increasing wages soon after federal administra tion began. But he said the increases were in the nature of a permanent " improvement of the basis of labor." In speaking of a permanent solution of the railroad question, the director general said he believed same new form of private management would follow the termination of government control. But he asserted the old plan of private operation by some 170 companies would never again be successful. He said the suggestions of S. Davies War field, head of an organization of rail road securities holders, for a statutory standard of reasonable rates and for a six per cent return on the entire in vestment in each region was getting nearer to one of the fundamentals in volved, than other proposals that had been made. Mr. Hines approved "strong govern ment representation on boards of di rectors and that these government di rectors should be members of a regu lating body" in order to use to ad vantage the knowledge obtained through the directorships. ELKS PLEDGE AID TO CRIPPLED SOLDIERS IS WILSON 'EXALTED PERSONAGE' COPENHAGEN, March 28. By the Associated Press). The Cologne Volks Zeitung reproduces an autograph re ply of Pope Benedict to a request of Cardinal von Hartmann. archbishop of Cologne, that the pontiff intervene to secure the release of German prisoners of war. The pope, in his reply, is quoted as saying he cosulted with an "exalted personage." The Berlin Lokal Anzeiger, referring to the correspondence, assumes that the "exalted personage" is President Wilson and says the pope believes this personage "utterly shares our wishes and is inclined to support the,m."
