Issued by the corporation commission
yesterday, Commissioners Jones and
Johnson stated that a decision had been
reached. If obstructions are removed
200 feet from the center of the railroad

that the town council of Tempe, which

the trees and adobe ruins which the

The route chosen by the highway

Peacock
Still the favorite of the dancing pub
lic, the Teacock continues to draw ca
pacity crowds every night despite th
lateness of the season. There, aro
many reasons for this. Tl;is big dance
hall is one of the be!t ventilated places
in the city, and because of its con
struction is always comparatively cool.
Then it boasts an orchestra the equal
of which cannot be found In the city.
People who enjoy good music flock to
the Peacock. The "dance hall beau
tiful" also has the distinction of en
joying very select patronage. There is
a marked air of refinment about it
which appeals to the better class. In
addition to these features Manager
Walter Willis Powell always has a
staff of entertainers of exceptional
merit.
Because the Peacock has proved to
be such an attraction throughout the
winter season, Manager Powell has
decided to keep the dance hall open
through the surr.er months and is mak
ing special arrangements to provide a
cool, delightful place tor summer cn-tertairment.

SAYS "CUBE"
IS THE BEST SHOW
HE m IS SEE1
"'Clarence," the show which opens at
the Klks tonight for a two-day stay, is
not entire stranger to the people of
Phoenix. M. L. Burkhead of the
Burkhead Motor Company, who saw
the show in Chicago, is so enthusiastic
over it that he is planning to see it
again while it is in Phoenix. Burk
head is s-o keen for the show that he
has written the following letter to tha
Brandon brothers:
"My dear Brandons: Your letter of
the 15 instant, advising 'Clarence' will
be shown at the Klks' theater. Friday
and Saturday ,and that you have re
served four tickets for me, has just
been received. I may state during" my,
visit at Chicago I saw 'Clarence' at the
Blackstone theater and wish to say it
is one of the very best shows I have
ever seen anywhere.
"Tickets to both 'Clarence' and the
'Follies' had to be purchased from
scalpers, and the two shows were con
sidered tho topnotchers of Chicago. I
very seldom ever care to see the same
?how over again, but I will make an
?xeeption in 'Clarence,' and will ap
preciate if you will reserve me two
additional tickets for the first per
formance. "I have seen, as you know, every
road show that visited Phoenix not
amy this season but the past four sea
sons, firul you may put me on record
as saying that you have never bafl
anything that will or would comparo
with 'Clarence. Am surprised at th?
"An Adventure in Hearts'
The Strand's attraction for today
and tomorrow will offer Robert War
wick, one of the finest roma.ritic actors
on the Paramount "bandwagon," offer
ing "An Adventure in Hearts." This
story of love and adventure is by the
author of "Prisoner of Zenda," and was
adapted for the screen by Elmer Har
ris, who, it will be remembered, wrote
"The Canary Cottage" a.nd "So Long
Letty." Mr. Harris' comedy is truly
refreshing, and it is this angle of the
story that gives it its sparkling fresh
ness, liobert Warwick has the hand
ling of the role depicting a dashing
American engaged in an amazing bat
tle of wits, wherein he meets cupid as
an adversary. With all the pep of tht
native American, this youngster shows
his foes what real action is, and of
course, he wins the girl in'the end.
Outing Chester pictures of travel and
the Fox News are the augmenting features.
"The Lost Bridegroom" at the Hip
John Barrymore, whose work in
"Jekyll and Hyde" stamped him as the
greatest tragedian the screen has ever
known, will today and tomorrow at
the Hip give a wonderful demonstra
tion of his equally effective work a3 a
comedian, when he will be seen In
Paramount's comedy, "The Lost Bride
groom." "America's greatest living
actor," as he has now become known,
has done some remarkable comedy
work for the, screen, and among his
best offerings will be found "The Lost
Bridegroom." It was Barrjmore, it
will bo remembered, who crea-ted for
the screen the highly humorous char
acterization of "The Man From Mex
ico," which will always be recorded as
the most sparkling bit of comedy ever
offered the public.

to just two days and the Hip will

LEE AND RAY BRANDON
Managers Elks Theater, Phoenix, Arizona.
You are to be congratulated on getting Clarence with its original Chicago
cast as New York said it was the best comedy written by an American in
years and it had run four months in Chicago. We expected a treat. We got
it. Let me say it is one of the best plays we have ever had and with its
brilliant cast, it is a thing of priceless merit, for the play is beautifully
acted and is a succession of hearty laughs from beginning to end. Play,
players and production deserves the heartiest commendation.
