Final plans for the Luke dance at
Riverside park next Sunday evening,
the gayest and biggest social event of
the mid-summer season, were made at
a special meeting of the high school
alumni dance committee yesterday.
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

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,

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

else that a fleet of airplanes can do.
Another feature will be a race between

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.

CLEARS UP POINTS
Oi NEW VERDE RIVER

"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.
Than when the battered bugle sounds
Again the old call "Taps."

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."

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.
In the department of "The Stock-
j men's Exchange" there is an interest
ing article by s. H. cowan, long coun
sel for the association, advocating the
return of the railroads to their
owners, and in this department there
(Alorizo E. 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
