The first and perhaps the most im portant feature of the pre gram, as soon as the train arrives, will be the de barkation of the eiht-ton American Whippet tank, which will immediately perform some stunt about town such as running' through any couvenient wall or climbing, an obstacle. Sydney S. Clark, who is in charge of he train, assures us that if a sufficient crowd can be obtained, an attempt will be made to climb some part of the butte in the tank. Junior Plav Toniaht "The Fortune Hunter, a comedy in four acts, which is to be presented by the junior class of the Normal school is a production which has met with start ling success in all parts of the country. In the course of the play Nat Duncan, who finds himself without the riches that he has been accustomed to, dis covers that he is incapable of earning a living for himself. A scheme is pro posed whereby he can become rich, and he agrees to try it. In the small coun try town where he. goes to test his method he finds that he is good for something after ail. Pete, the sheriff, whose married life has been far from felicitious and who has sought solace in the flowing bowl, affords the audience many hearty laughs. Mr. Graham, an inventor who has lost his fortune through his gene rosity, keeps a drug store in the town to which Duncan goes. Graham's daugh ter is given an education and is made into a beautiful woman. Josie Lock wood, an heiress makes a. play for Nat's affections, and because of an agreement which has been made, Nat becomes cn- i gased to her. But when Betty Graham : returns from school he realizes that he ! Ini'rs Vim arrl hv mo-.ine nf a litot-v i ' cident he succeeds in escaping from his engagement with Josie. Beside the main plot of the r'ay there is a ro- j mance between lacy lannor ana Angle, two of the village characters. Every one should see this and the time is 8:43 o'clock. CANDIDATES PDR AIR when Mr. Mathews came to Mesa, 225 pupils were in the high school and last year the enrollment was 329. It was explained that only the influenza epi demic kept the building from being ut terly incapable of housing the pupils. Next year 400 are expected to be en rolled, and the room problem must be settled now. The J100.000 bonds to be voted on May 10, will go toward a ; building or rather an addition, doub- i ling the present capacity, with an audi- j The United States Air service wants tnrium Renting Shn nffmilA Th school 13,000 men.

These resolutions call for sidewalks in all of Mesa, save the skirt lots.

Palmer sot forth in general terms his plan for a community hos pital for Mesa at the Business Men's luncheon yesterday. The doctor ex plained the great need of such a hos pital and stated that it should be a matter for the entire town to handle, not any one physician, nor church, nor society, but for ail the people of Mesa to have as their very own. To this end, as Dr. Palmer explained, a com mittee of five women had been se lected. These had agreed to select 10 other women, and these were to be heads of committees in the furtherance of the plan and the administration of the hospital when once erected. He asked that the commercial club appoint a committee which should be the fi nance and advisory committee. This was done and President Cummard named R. K. Steele, George A. Johnson, W. It. Stewart, Judge George Crosby, Dan Hibbert, W. E. Walters, and W. M. Beach. Quietly Married Robert Bowen and Mrs. Alice Beck were quietly married Wednesday night in Phoenix at 11 o'clock. Both parties are residents of Mesa, and coming through Tempe took with them Mrs. Kdna Wellington. Judge Wheeler of Phoenix performed the ceremony. A Correction Yesterday's Republican slated that Charles Bauer and Glen Standage had each been fined for speeding. This in formation came from an orficer, who, when questioned today slated that the reporter had misunderstood him but that possibly he did not make himself clear. What the officer meant to con vey was that Bauer was fined, and that Standage was with him in the car. This is to state that there was no fine placed against Mr. Standage and The Republican gladly makes the correction. iffkefNewS Circle 30 Coffee, lb 4-lb sack Pancake Flour . . . NF.W YORK. May 1.

At a luncheon in the Bee Hive yesterday 75 members of the Mesa Commercial club listened to a j thrilling address by Thomas Brooks j Fletcher, who was in town to fill his i appointment on the high sch'ooi lyceum 1 course. Jlr. Fletcher had no set ad- ure.ss, out i.a,eu .u upon u:c loan caJI,paion at Sacaton.

Sometimes-it Is hard to start a bunch ! of Arizona workers but once they get going they are still harder to stop. I This is best illustrated by the Victory i est of the men, in the boys and girls of the community, claiming that no town is completely organized until a practical survey had put Its chamber of commerce Into possession of full infor mation, as to the ideals, ambitions and possibilities of Us young people. In the evening, Mr. Fletcher spoke in the Orpheum theater to a crowded house. Will Seek For Better R. F. D. Service At the request of a number of farm ers, the present inefficient rural free delivery service going out of the Mesa postoffice was put before the noon meeting of the Commercial club yes terday and the club unanimously i passed a resolution setting forth to the postal department the unsatisfactory i conditions that exist. The present car- ; rier. Mrs. Barefoot is one of the best i the route has ever had. but the great j distance, to be traveled and the num- j ber of patrons along the route make it j an impossibility to cover the distance I before late each evening. Two carriers j are what the club and the farmers are asking for. i The people, however, had started and did not like to stop, and by Tuesday COO per cent of the quota had been sub scribed. Still they kept on going and on Wednesday morning reported 725 per cent over-subscribed and .still working. Telephone messaies from that part of the country indicate that be fore the people down there are satis fied with their subscription to help Uncle Sam ihey will subscribe over 1000 per cent and may reach l.'.on per cent.
