COTTON USERS TO DEVELOP HEU -MARKET Meeting of 30 Prominent Planters of Valley Is Held to Consider Ways To Introduce Pima into Mills of France, Belgium And England i To work out .plana to develop new markets for Pima cotton in the mills of England, France. Belgium and oth er European countries, nearly thirty of the biggest cotton growers "in Ari zona met Saturday night in the offices of the Arizona American-Egyptian Cotton Growers' association, at 114 North Second avenue. In addition to officers and directors of the association, there -were present influential cotton growers represent ing: every section of the valley, all members of the association, all bent on helping in the movement to develop new markets, so that the temporary withdrawal from the market of any group of .manufacturers may never -mrarrass the industry. Among the members present were Joseph E. Loftus. Dr. J. C. Norton, Jerry Elliott, Leonard Mets, Dwight B. Heard and G. W. Silvertharn of Mesa, Lin Orme and Hosoa Greenhaw from the west end. C. T. Hurst for the Buckeye district, A. G. Pilcher. E. E. Jack and Rodney McDonald from the Glendale district, Will Mosser and F. M. Gregg from the Madison section, Lloyd W. Prouty representing the Casa Grande association, Conrad Hess from the Washington district, W. S. Stevens, president of the association, J. Garnett Holmes, vice, president, di rectors Robert F. GarnetC C. R. Greene, Charles M. Smith and J. J. Phillips. Among numerous others at tending were William Cook. Levi Young, J. J. Fagan, Sam Buckingham, air. Stock well, K. S. Townsend and others. President Stevens acted as chairman of the meeting. "We have come together to con sider ways and means of developing a good demand and sales among the mills of England and the continent in particular," said Mr. Stevens. "I re cently made a aareful trip of investi gation over the southland as far as Washington, to look over the crop sit uation, the money market, and the prospective demand. Wet weather has seriously diminished the prospect of the crop in the south', and the pro duction is certainly going to be far below the ultimate demand. There Is, however, a carry over of several mil lion bales of low grade cotton to be disposed of in some way. "I am glad to say -that the banks In general are lining up to help the cotton grower. "At the recent big meeting in Dal las, composed of more than 50 pr cent bankers and the rest big cotton plant ers and merchants, it was determined to finance the cotton so it can be mar keted in an orderly and proper man ner, over a long period, and they set a price for Texas short cotton of 4& cents. South Carolina, in a stupend ous meeting, demanded a fair price for cotton, and endorsed the association plan to cut down the acreage of short cotton one-third and encourage the planting of more food and feed crops. "The Montgomery convention rec ommended a minimum price of 40 cents for short cotton and$40 per ton for seed. All over the south thero Is a united and determined effort among the cotton planters to stand together. It is an economic fact that .with the big crop, properly marketed, the price will rise, and that with a crop far be low the needs of the industry piled on the market in an improper manner, will force down the price. "We can see no prospect of a real market in the United States for some months. There is e, carry over, in this country of about 240.000 bales of Egyptian cotton. On the other hand, there is only about half that amount abroad, with a demand for this type of cotton far greater than ours. "The association has many gortd leads toward a- foreign market. We have types across the water, - and we are receivingg many inquiries and have a. number of good connections. But the needs of the industry here are such that everything possible should be done to introduce our cotton abroad as rapidly as possible. "To do this we wish to suggest that some good man representing this sec tion and this cotton be sent to Eng land for the winter to push the sale of our cotton, and that a number of pools be made up and sent across one after another as fast as they can be sold. Any other plan will be too slow FORM Which Price Are You Paying Porage Pot Service " Price Stores 48 lbs. Hardwheat Flour . ...... .$3.39 $4.00 10 lbs.

The foreign mills ;ire our best market "The most favorable thing about the present situation at this time." said Dwight B. lieard. who was called upon to speak, "is that the growers at last are organized; that they have a co operative force at work to do these necessary thinss to insure the future of our fine cotton industry. I am strongly in favor of developing a Eu ropean market. I met many prom inent European spinners at New Or leans at the World Cotton conference, and two of the most prominent came on here and made a personal inves tigation of our cotton. One of them. Sir Herbert Dixon, told me that our numbers two and three were as good asi had ever been spun in his mills. "Mr. Stevens' idea is good. We must realize that there is no present Amer ican market. We must market our cotton in an orderly manner, over at least nine months, in order to get fair prices, and we must work togeth er, must co-operate. To have a -good man over there across the water is the sanest thing I have heard proposed. He can be always on the job stirring up interest in our cotton, getting it tried out in the mills, following up the business for us. Whatever the ex pense, it will be worth while. "There will be no active demand from the tire people for some time, but our cotton has been proven to be very superior for airplane cloth, or any fabric requiring great strength, anil for all kinds of fine goods. I suggest that we make a tremendous effort to get in touch, not only with the for eign markets, but our own fine spin ners as well. We must not be de pressed over the tire situation, while wTill improve." Adds Endorsement Joseph Loftus added his endorse ment and promise of help in putting over the plan. "I am heartily in favor of opening up as wide a field of -demand for our cotton as possible," he said. We must make a concerted ef fort to get results, and by working to gether we will get results." Lin Orme spoke briefly, saying it is evident that our cotton must be In troduced to create a demand, and that he favored the association's plan most heartily. He said the European coun tries in the long run would undoubt edly be our best market. .. ' Sam Buckingham promised his co operation and endorsed the plan, -as did Judge Silverthorn of Mesa, who said: "The people of Mesa are in hearty accord with the work of the association and the things it is try ing to accomplish. We must get to gether and stay together. Since the mills in Europe are incruiring. there must be a market,, and we should de velop it.'" Dr. J. C. Norton then added his en dorsement, saying that the cotton In dustry was fortunate' in having an as sociation with men in it who were willing to work. The fruit growers with a perishable product have made a great success of their associations, he pointed out, and cotton men should do better. Committee to be Appointed On motion by Joseph Loftus, sec onded by Sam Buckingham, it was re solved by the meeting that a commit tee be appointed by the chairman to work out all the angles of the pro posed plan, arrange a meeting with bankers and business men to talk it over, and in general to get the mat ter under way as soon as possible. PROHI CANDIDATE RETURNS TO COLO. .DENVER, Sept. 19. After having spent a month in a campaign tour of Western states, which ended here to night, D. Leigh Colvin, prohibition party candidate for vice-president, left tonight for Chicago from where he will go to Washington to attend the International anti-alcoholic confer ence this week. Mr. Colvin spoke in a local church this evening at a Constitution day ser vice. .He urged respect for the consti tution as the fundamental law of the land and declared the eighteenth amendment was a part of the consti tution which should also be upneld. He attacked alleged plans of the wets to modify the provisions .of the amend ment. Discussing his m opponents, he de clared that both the major parties hsd nominated wet candidates. During his western trip Mr. Colvin spoke 29 times in California, 10 times in Washington and Oregon and a num ber of times in Wyoming and Solo rado. o ARGENTINE WHEAT CROP INCREASES ROME, Sept. 18 Estimates of the wheat crops of Argentine, South Af rica and Australia show these coun tries will produce 28 per cent more wheat in 1920 than in 1919. These fig ures have been deduced by the na tional institute cf agriculture. Crops in Spain, Italy, Algeria, Tunis, Bulgaria, Finland, Switzerland. Brit ish India and Guatemala are about the same as last year, the bulletin says, while wheat is above the average in Austria. THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN. MONDAY MORNING, U. S, GETS ONE NEW HIGH SCHOOL EVERY S WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. New high schools have been added to the Amer ican educational system at the rate of at least one a day during the last 2S years. Statistics compiled by the federal bureau of education show that there are now more than 17,000 such schools, an increase of 452 per cent over the number in 1890. Attendance figures from 14.000 of the schools give a total of 19 scholars, indicating in ef fect that one-tenth of the population is getting high school educations, the bureau states. Only 632 of the schools reporting to the bureau enroll 500 students each and 278 enroll over 1.000, while one half of the 10,951 schools tabulated have an enrollment of between 27 and 100 students. City high schools con stitute less than 10 per cent of the total. They enroll 52 per cent of all students. Almost 85 per cent of the high schools are rural with 40 per cent of the students. As 65 per cent of the schools offering a four-year course have terms of only ISO days during the year, a longer school term is "unmistakably fore shadowed," according to bureau offi cials. The schools cost thousands ot dollars to erect and to utilize the property for only 180 days a year is "bad judgment," the statement said. The number of high school grad uates has increased from 21,882 in 1880 to 224,367 in 1918. Considering the increase in population during this period, i is found that American youths are becoming over Six times as well educated as they were. The state of Texas leads in percent age of high school graduates who continue their studies in preparatory school or college. North Carolina and Kentucky are second and third re spectively. The average high school 'principal, the statistics show, receives $1,272 a year, or about $100 a month for the entire year. Principals of the Dis trict of Columbia, California, Arizona, Massachusetts and New York receive the highest salaries in the order named, while Nebraska pays the lowest aver age salary. In 1918 there were' 81,034 high school teachers, as compared with, 9,120 in 1890. Since 1902 there has been a steady increase of women entering the profession and today only 34 per cent of all high school teachers are men. The largest high school in the United States js the Polytechnic Evening High School, Los Angeles, Calif., with an enrollment of 8,440. o LIQUOR CONTROL JN CHILE SANTIAGO. Aug. 20. Agitation in favor of rigorous enforcement of regu lations governing the sale of intoxi cants and for additional measures of control has been growing recently in Chile. A campaign has been started to make the Araucanian Indian reserve of Cholchol "dry" following a petition to the government from residents in the district alleging violations of the exist ing laws which prohibit the sale .of alcoholic drinks on Sundays and feast days and by persons without license. The petitioners declare peddlers visit the Indians on holidays and during their traditional fiestas, trade liquor for blankets, fowls and cereals with the result that the feasts "degenerate "into drunken brawls and much disorder." Movements also have been started by workers in the nitrate and coal fields in favor of prohibiting the sale of liquor on pay days. o JAWN GOES TO JAIL LEAVENWORTH, Kan.. Sept. 19 Jack Johnson was received at the fed eral penitentiary today to begin serv ing a. sentence of a year and day im posed upon him at Chicago after his convfetion on a charge of violation of the Mann act. At the railroad station a negro chauffeur offered the use of his car to take the party which included two deputy United States marshals, to the prison, Johnson climbed into the car, took tRe wheel and drove to the peni tentiary grounds. He will be photo graphed and measured tomorrow. o In England there are no universities for the education of women. o Miss Martha Neumark, of Cincin nati, Ohio, already studying at the Hebrew Union College, is the first girl in history to enter college to pre pare to become a rabbi. o The former Kaiser's town residence, in the Berlin Schloss, on the banks of the Spree, is now utilized as the psychological institute of the Univer sity of Berlin. o As a result of the study of "Thrift" in public schools throughout the state of Pennsylvania, a half-million boys and girls saved $2,000,000 during the past school year. 1 1 II mm s "An ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure," is an old saying that applies JLo life in many ways.

FIRST ESTABLISHED E862 HER !KEE IS LOST TO II. S. Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW BEDFORD, Mass, Sept. 20 The cruiser Yankee, which was wrec ked on Hen and Chickens reef in J Buzzards bay 12 years ago and which sank and was refloated only to go down again after drafting a few miles, has been finally lost to the navy. Wreckers who have been trying for .several years to remove the hulk of the sunken cruiser as a menace to na vigation have blown it up, and timbers of the old Yankee are now scattered on the floor of the bay. The Yankee, which was formerly the coastwise passenger steamer El Puil, was in transport service during the Spanish-American war and was conti'nued on the naval rolls afterward as a cruiser. She went aground on Hen and Chickens during a thlnck fog on the night of September 23, 1908, and slipper off into deep water. The navy's attempt to float her, made under the direction of Naval Constructor Washington L Capps, failed, and private bids were called for. As a result, the first notable use of compressed air for mari'ne salvage in this country was made by John Ar buckle of New York, a sugar refiner. He bought Peary's Arctic ship Rooose vejt and made her the headquarters of his operations. After three months' work with the compressed air method the Yankee was raised and started in tow for this port. She ran into a storm during the night, heavy seas thumped her weak ened frame and one of the ai'r ports broke. The Yankee went down again off Dumpling Light and, although the Arbuckle wreckers renewed their ef forts, and other salvage outfits did their best to bring her to the top, she stayed there for 10 years before she was blown to pieces.

Failure of the majority of North American manufacturing and exporting concerns to place sufficient postage on the let ters they send to Argentina is one of the details which is tending to cause an unfavorable opinion here of Ameri can business methods, says the bulle tin of the United States Chamber of Commerce in Argentina. The bulletin is convinced that at least 25 per cent of the letters sent here from the United States bear a two-cent stamp instead of the fiv cent postage required. This means that the recipients not only are obliged to pay the additional three cents but a fine imposed by the Ar gentine postoffire regulations equiva lent to the deficiency, or a total of six cents. Many circulars and selling let ters come with the two-cent stamp and "it may be readily understood how an noying it is to Argentine firms to have their correspondence treated in such a careless manner." The bulletin also comments upon 'the lack of even rudimentary know ledge of geography-" shown by some American concers in addressing let ters. It cites the instance of an im portant letter addressed by the Cham ber of Commerce of one of the largest American cities to the stock exchange in "Buenos Aires, Brazil.' The ignor ance displayed of the location of a city of nearly 2,000,000 population is "to say the least not especially flattering to our Argentine friends, who are very proud of Buenos Aires as being the metropolis of South America." , o- Married women are considered the best teachers. o Girl students are ordered to fasten up their collars with pins during school hours at the Magdalen Collece.
