UNDERWRITERS Permit No. 1656 'Famous Bldg. bring1 about many great improvement in Arizona was the assurance given by Col. Epes Randolph, president of the Southern Pacific railroad in Mexico and president of the Arizona Eastern railroad, who was in Phoenix on a bus iness trip yesterday. "One of the principle improvements which the railroads intend to push in the stzite is the development of the Apache Trail," Colonel Randolph said, "that wonderful stretch of scenic high-w-ay is one q Arizona's greatest assets. It attracts .the right kind of people to the state.- Wealthy tourists go out of their way to view the awesome handi work of nature, and through this me dium are attracted to the agricultural and mineral resources of the state." Colonel Randolph ' became remines cont. Seated comfortably in his priv atip car "I'ocohontas" he recalled the hardships and environments of early Arizona. "These wealthy tourists weren't coming to the state 25 years ago," he said. "In those days a man who came to- Arizona was generally regarded either as a consumptive or a fugitive 12.515. 79 3,515.79 332.37LS7 227.296.SS 12,000.00 204.000.00 10,000.00 324,890.56 S60.099.44 207.739.37 101,162.43 S1.12S.54 10.000.00 32,696.91 . 45,000.00 $5,679,651.09 $ 200.000.00 200,000.00 96,416.11 4.755.38 200.000.00 85,376.29 246,456.20 4.509.71 44,274.98 3,903,521.49 365,991.61 26451.79 16,400.62 15,000.00 32,696 J 1 i."....

Within a very few years I believe Phoenix will be a city of more than 100,000 population and its citizen ship will be far above the average." Reverting1 to the Apache Trail, Col onel Randolph said he considered its scenery to surpass that of the Gra.nd Canyon. He discussed plans which are already under way for the construction of a big hotel at Roosevelt dam. "The Southern Pacific intended buliding a big hotel at Fish Creek be fore the war," he explained. "The Lodge, which the railroad built at Roosevelt, is proving inadequate to care for the trade. However, before the proposed new hotel will be built, the railroad must have assurances of extensive improvements on the Apache Trail." May Use Toll System. Senator Smith is now trying to get the national government to assist in rebuilding and maintaining the high way with reserve fund money, accord ing" to Colonel Randolph. Another plan to bring1 about an im provement of the highway is by the toll system. Colonel Randolph said this method would be discussed at a meet ing of the railroad officials and county supervisors to be held here Thursday. "Although Phoenix is now getting good train service, improvements are being put under way at the present time and in the near future travelers in and out of the city will be given ac commodations as good as any in the country. But these things take time and we must ask the public to be pa tient while the railroads readjust them selves from the chaotic condition into which the government has. thrown them." Conditions in Mexico are getting" bet ter, according to Colonel Randolph who said the Southern Pacific "railroad in Mexico has reopened about 900 miles of line from Nogales, Arizona, south into Mexico. More than 1000 bridges which were destroyed by Mexican revolution ists, have been rebuilt over this rail road. CROP GREATER Address By Dr. Frank Lock wood at Banquet Last Night Is Feature of Open ing of Arizona Mothers' Congress "Cotton is king, copper is queen, but the real dictator in Arizona is its babies. If the baby crop failed, Ari zona would go back to its wild state and merely be a camping ground," said Dr. Frank Lock wood of the Univer sity of Arizona in discussing "Arizo na's Infant Industry" 'at a banquet at the Woman's club last evening which was the opening event of the sixteenth annual conference of the Arizwia Con gress of Mothers and Parent-Teacher associations. Dr. Lockwood did not limit his talk to babies, but to babies grown up to school age. He deplored the fact that the Sunday school and church has lost hold on many of the children. "Many homes are making no effort to give the moral help needed at a time in "the history when, jazz-' and sensual pleasure are rampart," he de clared. "Youth needs help in the face of such conditions, and if earnest de voted women pass down high ideals they will have the power to change the people in a generation." Introduced by Mrs. Norton Dr. Lockwoodi the principal speaker of the evening, was introduced by Mrs. J. C. Norton, president of the congress, at the conclusion of the banquet at tended by 225 men and women, the capacity of thp clubhouse where the event took place. During the banquet there were other brief talks that led up to the illluminating address made by . Dr. Lockwood who held that the conference in progress was of far more importance than any convention ever held in the state. Dr. Lockwood slated that the con gress had assembled to plan for the welfare of babies. He said that the people were learning that they were not only responsible for their own children, but for all children the or phan, the alien and the outcast; "We cannot divorce our interest from their interest." he asserted as he pointed out that it was the first and prime duty of the citizens to look after the physical health and welfare of the nation's future citizens. "It is more dangeraus for a baby-to be born in Arizona than it was for our boys to go to the front line trench es, and we have statistics to prove it he charged as he cited the fact that 18 out of every 100, babies born in Ari zona perish before they reach the first birthday anniversary. While the per centage in the United States. is from 10 to 14, that of Arizona was given by Dr. Lockwood at 18 per cent." To remedy this evil he spoke of the work being done by home demonstration agents throughout the state through welfare campaigns. Rules for Parents He then touched upon the defects of children of school age, advocating medical inspection in the schools, community clinics and school nurses. He spoke of the experiments made by the home demonstration agents which emphasizes the need and importance of giving boys and girls of the state health instructions. The seven rules he recommended parents and teachers to enforce he said were: More than one cold bath a week. Sleep and plenty of it with open win dows. Balanced meals, including soup, cereals, eggs and milk. Four glasses of water a day. Outdoor play. Use of tooth brush twice a day. Bowel movement every morning. In speaking of play, Dr. Lockwood made a point of the great need of play grounds in Arizona which in most states.' he said, were considered as es sential as schools. He not only ad vocated the playground, but supervised play for the children. Charging America with "disgusting injustice" to its school teachers. Dr. Lockwood claimed that the country Dorothy Dalton's Beauty Chat Miss Dorothy Dalton, the actress fam ous the world over for her beautiful complexion, says; "Any girl or woman can have a beautiful, rosy-white com plexion and smooth unwrinkled skin like mine if they will follow my advice and use Derwillo. a simple toilet pre paration. I use it because it impart f instant beauty, is easy to apply, abso lutely harmless and has a marvelous effect upon the skin. One application proves it." Be sure to read Miss Dal ton's interesting story of how to quick ly acquire a beautiful complexion, soon to appear in this paper. In the mean time get Derwillo at any toilet counter and try it foday; you will be "delight fully surprised. ARIZONA BABY THAN ALL OTHER was- spending comparatively nothing on its school program. Spend More for Gum "The Americans are spending more for chewing gum than for school books," he claimed a'a he compared the prices paid educators to the amount received by day laborers. "There are 3,000,000 chifdren in America today without teachers," he said, as he spoke of the shortage of the teaching staff. He saioXa large per centage of the best teachers was leav ing the profession and that they were being replaced by inefficient instruc tors. " Passing over the educational situa tion after scoring the public for its un fairness in the matter of teachers' sal aries. Dr. Lockwood spoke of the im portance of placing high and pur ideals before the young folk of today. He spoke of the influence of the ideal oh the life of the youth who invariably follow their ideal. He touched upon the ideal of the three great Americans, Washington, Lincoln and Roosevelt, and urged that the ideal of the child be kept alive. The true American ideal as he views it includes preeminently equal oppor tunity, fair play, justice, education, in dependence and freedom and gene rosity." Captain Alkire Speaks Also "There is a supple providence work ing beyond our knowledge for these ideals for which American ought to be willing to die," he said in conclusion. While Dr. Lockwood's talk featured the banquet, there were other notable numbers, including the splendid ad dress made by Captain J. F. Alkire who discussed the "Educational Needs of Rusiia.' Captain Alkire spoke of education as the enemy of bolshevism and stated how difficult it was to force education on the' people. While he paid a tribute to the fine educational plants, the . universities of Russia, he declared the common schools were not popular with the masses. The banquet opened with a musical program presented by the high school orchestra which furnished additional numbers during the evening. Owing to the absence of Governor Thomas E. Campbell from the city, Mrs. Campbell substituted, extending greetings to the guests. Mrs. Campbell made a short graceful talk in which she said she spoke in behalf not only of the gov ernor, but for herself, her interest as a mother and a member of the parent -teacher association. Music Is Feature The address of welcome was made by Mrs. M. T. Phelps, president of the Council of Parent-Teacher associa tions, who emphasized the need of co operation. The response was made by Mrs. John Langdon of Verde, who gave as the aim of the organization the wel fare of little children. She was fol lowed by Mrs. Frank T. Alkire, one of the members of the executive board, who is recognized as a leader in the movement. Mrs. Alkire gave a history of the association in this state. The solo numbers by Mrs. Franklin Lane were exceptionally beautiful, the well known soprano singing in her usual charming manner, wMle the mu sical reading by Miss Viviaii Young of the Arizona School of Music was another feature that created particular enjoyment. The club house was decorated in a wealth of fruit blossoms and ferns the floral arrangements having been . in charge of the Creighton Parent-Teacher association. The banquet was served by the Ladies' Aid of the Pres byterian church. ,17, MISSING HFTER TRIP TOTI Sent by his father from the ranch home seven miles south of .the city, to Phoenix Saturday to get a load of stock feed, Claude Right, 17 years old, has mysteriously disappeared. R. L. Right, the father, can assign no cause for the boy's leaving home, as he declares he had appeared la be entirely satisfied and had expressed no desire to go away. The boy's moth er died about a week ago, but the sad affair did not affect the son any more than might have been expected. Claude had no money when he left home with the team, his father expect ing to follow shortly in a motor car, but car trouble prevented him from doing so. Sunday morning the father came to Phoenix to search for the son. He found the team in the city pound. It had been taken up at 4 o'clock Sun day morning at the hitching rack on Jefferson street. The boy had not called at the McCall Cotton company for Teed. Claude Right is five and one-half feet tall, weighs 160 pounds, has dark hair, blue-gray eyes and wore blue overalls, white and blur-striped shirt, black beaver hat and dark knitted sweater. The father says that Claude does not drink, does not frequent pool halls and has few acquaintances in the city. The family came from Red River county, Texas, a year and a half ago. o Do our share towards the welfare of your city. Be at the high school audi torium, tonight at 7:30 Adv.

"Hang on, 1 11 cut the rope! Sellers shouted to the men who were facing doom They cursed him frantically , but without avail; he swung his bone handled knife across the hemp and the voyagers were safe for a second. All danger of fouling was off. The raft swung free across the up stream fide of the bridge pier, and rin" for Yuma, but Sellers was ready for that contingency. Ills engineering Knowledge serveu mm well. With a noose in the idle rope he cast with unerring aim and the desperate sea-bound men caught it and clung lor life. Their feet held fast in the raft lashing1 and they hugged to the lifeline. Meanwhile the raft started to submarine, and Brown and Stillwell were quickly up to thPir npfks. Then Selers brilliantly began to pay out the rope, relieving the tension and allowing tne rait to float in daylight again, but he skinnprt of the r:tlms of his hands and has been going in bandages ever since. Chief Raftsman lckes ana Bridge Engineer Butler stood close and encouraged him. At approximately 300 feet down stream the raft was under control, riding gently in the swell, as it were. Of course enginers have to be brave men and game, so Brown and Still well insisted that they were not at all afraid and that they .ere quite wil ling to continue taking soundings. To the onlookers it seemed like a fine time to quit, but the engineers stuck to their heroic work and the soundings were, completed safely. The shortened rope failed to reach to theveddy and all went well. And that was not all. Upon coming ashore the raftsmen met' a bunch of girls whom they knew well, and the girls wanted to know what made them so wet. It seei-ed the girls had'nt noticed the river. Brown and Stillwell went up on the bridge then to see the heroes and to hold converse with them, but the he roes considered the day's work done, and they cranked the lizzie and pulled out while the sailors were detained by the girls. The official datum is that the river is 25 feet deep.
