It reached Phoenix early Sunday morning by the j Associated Press. Los Angeles paper I :ilso told of it Saturday afternoon, the announcement apparently coming from j Ihn greatest ace himself. ! The iast word formally received by i he tournament committee as to Cap tain Ui kenliacker's coming was re- '-ived from Captain L. E. Appleby.

All net proceeds of the dance will go into the Maricopa county memorial fund. The big dance pavilion will be beau tifully decorated for the occasion, it was decided at yesterday's meeting. Red, white and blue bunting will be entwined with class and school colors in a decorative scheme designed to lend enchantment and beauty to the events of the evening. Every dance on the program will be a specialty of some nature. Spot dances j will be featured, while special lighting ' tou.riif.ment at the state ffects will be arranged for the eve ning s entertainment. Admission to each dance will be 10 cents. Boxes of the pavilion will be auc tioned off to the highest bidders. These boxes will likewise be decorated by Captain bddie Riekenbacker Steps will also be taken toward bring ing Miss Fischer from the coast to Phoenix in one of the army planes. Flying Starts at 7:30 Captain Appleby, who is working out the aerial program for the tournament, said last night that the flying perform ances would not start until about 7:30 o'clock. This will leave plenty of time earlier, and also later, in the evening for the addresses by prominent citizens and the music which will be one of the features of the program. In the matter of speechmaking, Cap tain Riekenbacker will probably prove easily the favorite, with stories of his experiences and observations, and ex periences of other fliers ,at the front in fighting Huns in the skies. The great est ace, who has disclaimed this title on the ground that it belonged right fully to Lieut. Frank Luke, will also have much to say of the Phoenix ace. Even without the addresses, Captain Riekenbacker, Miss Fischer and the Captain Appleby arrived in Phoenix ! coiorca army oanu ano troopers, me yesterday morning on his return after 1 tournament would be well worth the completing arrangement for the air- ! price of a ticket, $1, which automatical planes for Ihe tournament.

Attractions Gatore With it at last definitely certain that America's greatest ace will come and participate in the air memorial, the tournament is assured four of the greatest drawing cards that could be secured everything needed to make it the biggest affair ever seen in the southwest. In addition to Captain Riekenbacker. Marguerita Fischer, mo lion picture star and donor of a Frank f.uke medal, will make a journey from the coast to do her bit in honoring the Arizona ace and the other fallen heroes. Then there will be a fleet of army air planes from Rockwell Field, includiug vt least four of the most mighty and Mieciacular models of fighting aircraft. And last of outside attractions, there will lie the magnificent, band of the Tenth United States regular cavalry, uid a troop of the same negro regiment, hich won a name long before the llohenzollerns were heard of outside of iermany. The cavalrymen will come rom Fort Huaehuca, where the regi nent is now in garrison awaiting a banco to see action on the'border. All committees of the tournament vill meet this morning to talk over the ournament campaign, to complete all dans, and to launch a more intensive irive in selling tickets for the tonr ament.

Another feature will be a race between R. C. Saufley, Phoenix business man, in his racing car, and a Rockwell Field pilot in a fast pursuit airplane. Need Intensive Ticket Selling With but five days more until Sat urday, the day of the tournament, the tournament committee meeting today will organize a more intensive ticket selling campaign. All last week tickets for the tournament sold Veil, but it is generally admitted they would have sold better is there had been more workers out. Beginning today, a con centrated campaign throughout the city will be taken up- Residence and busi ness districts will alike be covered, door to door fashion, by expert ticket eellers. Tonight the high school alumni work ers will meet at the war work building to plan a more intensive campaign for themselves. Ticket selling for the tournament will be much more interesting when it is remembered that the woman or girl, and the man or boy, selling the most tickets will receive free rides over the city in one of the airplanes taking part in the tournament. The person buy ing the most tickets will also be given a flight. The tournament programs. 96 page magazines, will 'be out within a few days, and are now in the hands of the printer.

CLEARS UP POINTS Oi NEW VERDE RIVER WATERWORKS SYSTEM "TAPS" (Bv Maitland Leroy Osborne, in tional Magazine) They are marching with halting step A halting step and slow: And many in those blue-clad ranks Have hair as white as snow; Their youth lies on the battlefields Of fifty years ago. Those serried ranks are thinning fast That once with martial tread The knapsack and the musket bore Where Grant and Sherman led: Their sleep is sound and peaceful Iif the bivouac of the dead. And some lie on those hard-fought, fields Where now the Blue and Gray Clasp hands across the battle lines Their blood has washed away: Where once the tide of battle flowed. Their children's children play. The passing years speed swiftly, And silence round them wraps; And to their listening ears there comes No sweeter song, perhaps.

W ' Careless though not wilful ignoranct is likely to send numerous voters astray at the city water works election next month unless the public mind is cleared concerning the matter of source location, a cy official statea yesterday. In an effort to fully ex plain, the following statement was Automobiles will! given: Due to topographical characteris tics of this country, most of us are not fully informed outside of beaten tracks. A multiplicity of projects during past years have confused us and we have not taken the trouble to straighten ourselves out in regards to these mat ters of public improvement. "The proposed source of this new water supply is located about one-half mile this side of Fort McDowell, in stead of several miles above Fort Mc Dowell, as is the belief of many. Be tween the source of this supply and Phoenix there are no more engineei ing difficulties to be encountered than between Granite Reef and Phoenix. "The proposed pipe line will, in a general way, follow the- course of tut Verde the few miles to its mouth, then follow the Salt to Granite Reef and thence to some point in the vicinity of Evergreen on the Arizona canal, where it will likely cross to the soutn :nd be brought in througli the Scotts dale section to the .supply reservoir, to be located at some point in the neigh borhood of Ingleside, and thence into Phoenix. "The total length from the point of supply to the city limits vnl be ap proximately 33 miles. Without refer ence to other phases of the question, the next most feasible point for loca tion of a water supply is the Hassa yampa river, somewhere in the neigh borhood of the Garden of Allah, which is a matter of 50 miles from Phoenix and with rougher grades. It can read ily be seen, therefore, that on this single question, excluding all merits and demerits of all the possible sources of supply, the so-called Verde supply has the advantages." o ' . - AMERICAN WOMAN ONE OF ENGLAND'S ATTRACTIVE WIDOWS In these three fine shapes of Tom Moore Cigar you find that high quality which has never ceased to improve since Harrison was nominated in Minneapolis in 1892.

NOT A GREAT LOSS TO GERMANY An announcement was made by The Republican some weeks ago of the intention of the American National Live Stock Association to establish an organ' of the association, and again yesterday there was a brief editorial mention xf the first appearance of the publication, "The Producer," of whien T. W. Tomlinson, for. many years the secretary of the association, is the managing editor. The place of publi cation is DenverT the headquarters of the association. This publication was authorized at the twenty-second an nual of the association at Denver. The directors of the American' Na tional Live Stock Association Publish ing Co. are all former presidents of the association: United States Sena tor John B. Kendrick of Wyoming, Ike T. Pryor of Texas, Henry A. Jastro of California, and Dwight B. Heard of Phoenix. Mr. Tomlinson will be as sisted by Louis Warming as associate editor. The firs.t number of the Producer containing 56 pages, is printed on book paper; the typographical work is ex cellent. The contents embrace com plete articles on nine principal topics which are of foremost interest to stockmert. Amoig them is one on the forest service by Will C. Barnes, for merly of this state, and long connect ed with the service. There is an article on the regulation of the unap propriated public lands, and others, as follows: on range prospects for the year; ,"We are a creditor nation;" a discussion of the Kendrick bill, relat ing to the licensing of the packing industry; an article on the subject or stock-feeding, and many others. There-is an able editorial discussion of the business outlook, exports and prices, market conditions, production cost basis, market inspections and such practices at stock yards as over charges on feed bill-and loading and unloading charges.

Taylor in orld's Work) The loss of Alsace-Lorraine and of the Saar fields would not be very ser ious to Germany if production in the other fields were normal. The Saar fields now are producing about twenty eight thousand tons per day and the French are experiencing none; of the difficulties, that attend the operations of the German mines. The Saar out put can easily be brought to 20 million tons per annum, and the output of the mines of Alsace-Lorraine to 3 million tons. Twenty-five million tons sub-, traded from 275 million would not represent a very serious loss to Ger many, but 25 million added to 40. mil lion tons would represent an enormous increment to France, exceeding her im port of 1913. The coal of the Saar is of excellent quality for furnace and coke ovens. The loss to Germany rests rather upon geographical than quan titative considerations. The coal from the Saar went to the industries of tho Upper Rhine and to Bavaria; and if these are to be supplied by Dortmund a longer haul, this would represent a. definite impost upon the industries of these sections. ; . . ,, The future situation may be summed up in one sentence. If German coal production recovers its normal capac ity, the loss of the Saar and Alsace Lorraine may be regarded as neglig ible; if German coal production re mains in its present situation, the loss of the Saar and Alsace-Lorraine mines is still negligible, because the situa tion Tt-ill ho as, Ha1 that 4t 1 A . t.. any worse. , , - S'"S SilM? $' . 5 f 8?i:ifi.:f s::trM f s n-'-'''lpfeK':WMM.I;.1.tfl tool oreezes at the best located hotel on the beaches.
