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
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

engagement with Josie. Beside the
main plot of the r'ay there is a ro- j

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 ;

Mesa Working For Community Hospital
Dr. R. F. 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.
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.
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

Bee Hive yesterday 75 members of the
Mesa Commercial club listened to a
