THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY .MORNING, APRIL 29, 1919 BUT ONE-SIXTH COITfWIlS hHIDIU Second Week Of Campaign Opens AVith Redoubled Efforts To Wake Up People To Critical Situa ; tion Facing Them ORGANIZE TO GH " farmers' arizona red cross companyI chapters to meet Al LAI NEW PLANS With barely one-sixth of the city and j county quota gained, and approximately i Imt one-tenth oC the state quota sub- I aeribed. the .second week of the Victory I loan campaign opened yesterday with j a, general speeding up of work at; hoadq tiarters and the realization that something mu,-;t be done to prevent! Phoenix and Maricopa county from j staying in tne slacker class. j Seven working days of ihe Victory loan campaign have passed, and out of an allotment of $ I X 15. 000 for Mari copa county, but $312,000 has been fs'jbsoribwi. Is it time that we I wake up'.' I Repoits from all over the twelfth I district show that the cities are lagging behind and the rural districts are coming through in good shape. Port land, Ore., is hading among the cities, with nearly 50 per cent of her assigned quota already subscribed. Meetings Every Night Radical methods must now be re sorted to, to meet this laggard spirit, which is holding up the progress of the V ictory loan. One phase of this work ! to come is the "benzine board," a com- j mittee. of citizens who know Phoenix! and the county thoroughly and the fi- j nanrial standing of the people of thisj section. I These men daily sift down sub scriptions as they come in and where the purchaser has manifestly failed to invest to a reasonable degree in keep ing with his financial standing, he will le quixzed as to his failure to do his duty. In an effort to hurry along the at tainment of the quota, a series' of meetings, featuring music and stunts, has been arranged for the grandstand every night this week. Watch the papers for announcements of the evening program. Victory loan wake-up week was ush ered in last night at the big grand stand performance featuring the Ed. Redmond follies in which the entire For the protection of the dairy and cattle interest of the state, the Farm ers' Mutual Insurance company is in process of organization. Headed by a number of the most prominent men, dairymen, farmers and business men, the organization is intended to be of great value to the cattle and daily industry as well as to all other inter ests.. Holding the important position that the dairying and cattle business does in this state, anything that tends to the improvement of these two affiliated in terests will have considerable influence upon all other industries and for this reason the proposed mutual insurance company had met with favor and there has been much enthusiasm exhibited over the organization. Among the benefits of the new or organization to be enjoyed by the mem bers as explained by T. L. Holmes, owner of a herd of 200 dairy cattle. were the securing of better prices for their cattle through pooling their stock instead of offering individual lots; of insuring at a higher valuation: mak ing loans or a nigner cnaracter because of insurance. These are but a few of the benefits that will be enjoyed by the members of the proposed Farmers' Mutual In surance company, it was stated by the promoters. "We are enrolling members rapidly," said Mr. Holmes, "and as soon as the charter membership is filled we will then go among the farmers throughout the state with a view of enlisting everyone we possibly can in the new company." Delegates from ten Arizona Red Cross chapters will meet in Phoenix next Saturday, May 3, for a general conference with Pacific division head quarters officials.

Some time in March Welch's bicycle was stolen from him. A few days ago he learned that it was in the pos session of Marchese. The boy went after it and identified it, but Mar chese's wife, in the absence of her husband, would not give it up. The police, however, recovered it. The list which Marchese had been required by law to furnish the police showed that he had purchased a bicycle March 1 from one Lucero. There W3S no record of the purchase of any other by him after that date. Marchese procured a warrant for the arrest of Lucero at Gilbert where he was work ing. He was present at the time of the arrest of Lucero by Constable Haze Burch, and the constable heard him trying to make a settlement with Lucero on the basis of $S. Lucero was brought to trial yester day and the Welch bicycle was brought into court. A brother of Lucero swore that he had given his brother a bicycle, the one which had been sold by him to Marchese. The bicycle on exhibit, he said, was not the one. Several other witnesses, the last an Indian, testified that this was not the bicycle, and all j of them pointed out the differences! between it and the Lucero bicycle. A fact quite damaging to Marchese was brought out, and that was that i while this bicycle had been sold, ac cording to the record March 21, the bicycle belonging to Welch had not been stolen from him until March 27. On this showing and the rest of the testimony ot the witnesses, Assistant County Attorney Lewkowitz moved to dismiss. A half hour later, Welch signed a complaint charging Marchese with receiving stolen goods. o It makes no difference what your wants may be you can have them sup plied by using and reading The Repub publican Classified Pages Arizona's leading advertising medium.

HALL Eastland, Texas "Arizona will probably receive more highway equipment, fceei, from the federal government, than is now owned in the entire state by the highway de partment, the counties, and the cities," said State Engineer Maddock yester day. "The equipment will consist of trucks and traitors, scrapers, graders, office equipment of all sorts, survey ing instruments and other things too numerous to mention. "Because of this fact this depart ment is not making expenditures for equipment, and I have written to the various county highway commissioners suggesting that they limit their pur chases of equipment and thus have more money for actual road construc tion, for I am confident that we will receive much more than the state high way department will be able to use, and believe that some arrangement can be made to allow the use of part of it by the counties at a nominal rental to cover the cost of the freight." The equipment spoken of by Mad dock is that purchased by the war de partment for use during hostilities, that will not be needed on a peace time basis, and its distribution to the variors states on the same basis as the distribution of federal aid money was authorized by a rider attached to the postoffice bill. Part of it is now ready for distri bution, probably that used in this country, and the rerlainder will be ap portioned as fast as it can bo shipped back from France. An idea of the amount of equipment the state will secure through this dis tribution may be gained from the fact that Arizona's proportion will be 1.4 per cent, which amounts to 280 trucks out of the 20.000 to be apportioned, other equipment being in proportion. o MOTOR TRUCKS 't ,T fffigTlfrBWfffa miaa mm wmas mm mm mjrm& A STYLE AND SIZE FOR EVERY REQUIREMENT When ybu buy a motor truck, you expect to use it a long time.

Haskiri, Director, Washington. 1 C. ani; cm-losing a two-cent stamp for return postarv That the statements she made on the witness stand were responsive to the questions propounded by counsel, is the claim made by Mrs. Angus MacKay in answer to the $50,000 action for damages instituted aainst her by Florence Wilkes, the nurse whom Mrs. MacKay alleged on the witness stand killed her husband. Miss Wilkes, who attended MacKay during his last ill ness, was accused by Mrs. MacKay of "taking of everything she could lay her hands on," when the defendant in the damage action testified in a pro bate proceeding held before Judge Ly man some time since. The suit was brought by Miss Wilkes immediately after the settlement of the will case which was settled by Mrs, MacKay's acceptance of J 1,200 a month and $160,000 from the MacKay rela- ! tive.s in Montreal who are worth ! several millions. It was while the ' case was in the courts that Mrs. Mac- , Kay on the witness stand spoke of her missing jewels, a handsome diamond ring, lan!liere, pins and other valuable articles of jewelry which she intimated wore stolen by MacKay's nurse. The defendant, through her counsel, George Purdy Bullard, declares that she only uttered statements that ques tions called for and which she believed I material to the case. She denies malice 1 tus alleged in the complaint. Mrs. MacKay denies that Miss Wilkes was ; injured by her remarks, which state ments she alleges were privileged in that they were part of the testimony. Other denials are mads by Mrs. Mac Kay, although she admits the state ments credited her. She asks for a dismissal of the suit on the further ground that the complaint does not state facts sufficient to consitute an action. , The matter has been taken advisement by Judge Lyman. The land board held a meeting at the capitol yesterday and authorised the commissioner, W. H. Moucr, to sell the timber from six sections of state land near Flagstaff, the land and tim ber belonging to the stale university. The prices asked for . the 13,000,000 feet of Arizona soft pine on these sec tions will range from $1.80 to $4.90 per thousand feet of standing timber. This timber stands in the midst of logged over sections, small tracts left because the state until recently had no means of legally disposing of it. The timber will be cut under state supervision, and only 70 per cent al lowed to be cut, the remaining 30 per cent being left for re-forestation. Acting Governor Sims presided at the meeting, all members except Governor Campbell and H. S. Ross being present, the Litter being sick. officeiceTll- GIRLS ARE conn! An entertainment entirely original and new to the amusement world is coming to the Columbia theater next Sunday afternoon for an engagement positively limited to four days. It is a combination of one of the greatest t-ictures yet produced and the appear ance of a bevy of beauties celebrated wherever there is a motion picture machine and a screen upon which to flash its projections. The picture is Hack Sennett' latest feature production, "Yankee Doodle in Berlin," and the bevy of beautiful girls is from the Mack Sennett Los An geles studios. They are the original Sennett bathing girls in their first ap pearance on any stage. the story of "Yankee Doodle in Berlin" is unique. The scheme of the plot is utterly original and its purpose is two-fold. It was created to amuse and to inspire patriotism. It is not a war play, though its scenes are laid in Berlin and its hero a fighting, fear less, intrepid, Yankee la1. Ridicule, satire and burlesque are thrown around the deflated figure of the creature who sought tf subjugate the world. There will be three complete performances of this double program each day. Seats for the rim evening performance will be reserved, the seat sale to start Thursday. never failing effort to help a friend in i distress places him in a peck of j trouble, but fortunately it is only the j stage kind and the audience is kept in a state of joy throughout the two furiously funny acts. j The play is staged in a highly ar-1 tistic manner and the costumes worn ' by the chorus are dreamy creations.! Ed. Rfdmond in the role of Jimmy, i holds the center of the stage with his j droll and inimitable style of humor and is ably seconded by Bobbie Dcane ' as the wife of an absurdly jealous husband, the latter role being played j by Joe Kemper. Peggy P.etts is ex ceptionally pleasing, while Marvin Hammond, Irene Noblitt, Ed. Young and Orville Harris, give good support. A number of tuneful songs are in terpolated during the action of the play, the most effective being Orville Harris' singing of "I Want to Live and Forget; " Marvin Hammond's character song, "Antonio, My Boy," and the opening of the second act in which Miss Deane, Miss Bctts and tho chorus appear. by "0" soldiers, sailors and marines, armed with American flags and Victor-: loan subscription blanks, and v . transformed into a pa-.riotic demon stration at which subscriptions fo:' j.Vl'UU worth of bonds were obtained.
