I. Rountree against Walter Tway the Arizona Cot ton Growers' association et al follow ing the death of his wifeis now on trial. Rountree claims that Mrs. Rountree's illness was due directly to the un sanitary manner in which she was forced to live when she came to Mesa and other witnesses corroborated his testimony relative to the "unfit quar ters" which were theirs. They told of the cases of "sore mouths", and fever which they alleged resulted from being housed in tents "almost black with flies" without floors or furniture, and located on lots that had previously held live stock. The plaintiff was on the stand the greater part of the morning. He at tempted to show that his wife con tracted typhoid while on the Tway ranch where she was taken from the train.- Dr. Drain, who had charge of the case, was the next witness called. He testified that typhoid is only communi cated directly or indirectly from an other from the time of innoculation until illness, the period of incubation varying a few days until several weeks. It was also testified in cross exami nation that the water supply of Abilene comes from an artificial lake and that during the dry period preceding the coming of the Texans to Arizona the water in the lake was low and of poor quality, and that there were cases of typhoid at Abilene when the cotton pickers left there. Further cross ex amination brought testimony that Mrs. Rountree was ill on the train and was not well when she arrived at Tempe and that the manner of living of the Rountrees was careless. The plaintiff is represented by Al bert Jyhe, and Holzworth and Jamin son, "and the defendants by M. J. Dougherty and Charles Wolf. o Sill STATE MANAGER The Standard Oil company has a new head in Arizona, in the person of a former resident of Phoentx, C. O.

Callahan, assistant postmaster. Hermann is vis iting his wife and she will remain here the balance of the summer. Hermann served aboard the Algon quin for 18 months, during which time his ship was in the "ocean escort" that convoyed over 400 supply and munition ships. Not one of them was lost, Her mann says. "There were 20 to 40 ships In each convoy," related Hermann, "and the danger zones were that water one day's run out from Gibraltar and two days' run from Great Britain. AH other water was regarded safe. In the danger zone we were especially cautious. We car ried depth charges and a four-inch bat tery, none of which were In use during the 18 months." Hermann has been in the sen-ice of the coast guard for 11 years, being for merly on the Cutter Manning, in which he sailed through the Panama Canal to the Atlantic coast. He was on duty in Haiti when the war broke out and after being transferred to the Algonquin, went into active sea service.
