No Off-Typea Considered Special notice should be taken by those contemplating entering In Pima classes for beet piants and sweep stakes awards of the fact that the awards are to be given for plants which are typically Pima and that off-type nlants. regardless or their excellence. are not worthy of awards in this class. This rule will be strictly adhered to. since It is not desirable for more than one variety of American Egyptian cot ton to be grown in the southwest, and the success of the marketing phase of the industry depends upon production of as large an amount as practicable of cotton as nearly uniform as It Is possible to grow. Th cotton deoartment Will turnun Its own containers for all displays of lint and seed cotton. Therefore, en tries mav b sent in in any container which will protect the cotton and keep It clean.

Many of the new men are getting into hapo very slowly which makes it dif ficult to fill holes on the team." As et no one has developed in the boot ing department and Coach Robinson is looking hard for a man to do the kicking. The squad will be put through hard scrimmage for the nex.t three days and the team to represent the school Saturday will be picked from the men who make the best showing in the "work-outs." . o HIGH SCHOOL NOTES A meeting of the lettermen club will be held this morning at 8 o'clock. The purpose of the meeting Is to discuss the dividing of the athletic fund for this year. In former years the fund was not divided which resulted in the football team' obtaining the greatest amount. This year each team will have a certain amount, which will be de termined by this club, so that when baseball season comes around mere will be some money for them. One of the biggest football games of the season will be played next Satur day. The University of Arizona Fresh men will Invade the Coyote territory to revenge their defeat of last year. The Freshmen class at the -V" is the biggest in the history of the school and thev are making big plana for nlxt Saturday. They are going to try to bring a team to Phoenix this time that will .surely defeat the high school team but the local team hopes to repeat their victory of last year. Kvery one plans to attend that game as It will be worth the money. ' Miss Ida Mae Golze. the secretary of the higli school, haa resigned that position effective immediately to take up other work. For the time being Mra. It. Colze will assume the duties of secretary. AH of the Coyotes will mls Miss Colze greatly. The Freshman class has challenged the Sophomores to a football game Last Friday afternoon the freshmen were out on the field about 80 strong practicing and it looks as If the Sophs are in for another trimming.

Had you asked me about the V-fhaped blouse which ..aused such a ripple last spring, i would have another answer," said the "develish" land commissioner. F. A.

City Magistrate Frank Thomas asked as he finished reading a complaint charging John Lewis, an Indian, with drunk and disorderly conduct. Judge Thomas had nearly completed a busy day in police court. So many offenders had been crowded Into the small room that Lewis had been well hidden behind the mass of humanity. Slouchlnglyhe stepped forward aa his name was read. v ' "Yesslr. Jedge, It's me alright," Lewis replied. "vhen were you here last, John?" the court inquired. "Last Monday, I guess. John re plied. At this point. Police Chief George O. UxUboIs made a brief statement to the court. "It was only a few weeks ago that we released Lewis one Saturday after noon after serving a 20-day Jail sen tence for drunkenness and disorderly conduct," Brlsboia explained. "That same night, he was dunk akaln. You gave him another i'O-day Jail sen tence and we released him last Sat urday. Now here he ia again." "Well, jedge. I just can't let the stuff alone." Lewis remarked. , "That being the case, it'll be 30 days this time. That will pive you a little rener anyway," the court concluded. o TOPJESENTC1SEF0R skirts, While the majority appear to be In I sympathy with the upward modern trend, there were a few conservatives to be found, even among 'Arizona offi cials. Most of the observing men are In favor of the "half and half length." midway between the ankle and the knee, and again here are those who go so far as to say "the knee's the limit." Age and the contour of the silken ex hibit have more to do with it than any thing else. Not one of those inter viewed considered for a moment the moral issue. Joe V. Prochaska. state game warden, received his inspiration from his surroundings. He glanced over his collection and then declared that no woman should wear 'em too short. "She shouldn't dress like a road runner. But why come to me this isn't the chicken department" he said in an annoyed tone and then mop ping hia brow declared that as far as the dear vere concerned they were game. "Don't make a street cleaning de partment out of skirts" is Chief of Po lice George Brisbola advice to all women although he qualified later by asking that whHe he was not fussy if the display was not all it should be. why offer the exhibit? Furthermore said the chief if the knee skirt becomes the vogue I look for trouble among my force. I have emphasized the fact that every officer of the law should be able to look everyone in the eye." W. S. NorveiL state water commis sioner, evidently had his mind on his work for he muttered something about abbreviated skirts landing one into pretty deep water. k With all seriousness Colonel James II. McClintock. state hisyrian, declared that the most moral races were the least clad, while Con Cronin, state librarian would have women wear their 6kirta to the top of their boots the height of the boot not mentioned.' Ankles mean nothing to Adjutant General Walter S. Ingalls, who has been stationed along the Mexican bor der, to say nothing about his leave in Paris when he served overseas. "Do not quote me," says he "my wife might follow my suggestion." There is no prescribed rule to cover the big LOWER FREIGHT Oil IE serve system that it protected neces sary production and distribution. Straight thinking that will overcome alarm concerning necessary readjust ments, careful bnying by all, unadul terated hard work, efficient production at a fair profit and a strong stand against concocted discontent are out standing needs. the cars." Mr. Jones believes that the congestion of traffic would be less ened and as additional plea for the, bit of a skirt he advocates them as a mat ter of conservation. The correct length he places at an Inch and a half below the knee provided there are no de fects. .Judge Thomas of the city court rules that it is no ones business how short a woman wears her skirts. No indeed. "It's a woman's own business'' says he Just like that. So far he says the short skirt has not brought In any business to his court. "Out of style out of look" says none other than Chief Justice Cunningham of the supreme court. He says the Btyle is long on looks If short on mate rial. Comes Jesse Boyce, state auditor, who ia not running for anything and therefor does not care what he says and says it. He's for 'era short, with expensive, rolled stockings and every thing. "I admire fine scenery" he declares.' Maybe it isbecause he is hia assist ant but M. S. Stanley agrees with his chief. "As short as her conscience permits" says Clay F. Leonard, clerk of the su preme court. "Seventeen Inches from the ground" is declared for by "R. E. McGillen, as sistant secretary of state who thought that the correct length if It looked well. "With the tax on materials we can not ask the women to buy more than necessary lor a simple little skirt" says Charles R. Howe, state tax commissioner. "Bring out the best there Is in every one, if it is from the knee down why that's all right, too" G. H. Bolin, state mine inspector says. Making up for the fact that he said "long enought to reach to the knee" Dr. R. H. II. Blome thought to make it all right with an Abraham Lincoln quotation, but its the truth that the state director for vocational education favors the short skirt. "But don't eay I said anything as wicked as that" he begged. T. C. Cuvellier. director of public health surveys can't think in inches. However little girls In primary classes should wear their frocks to their knees, while high school girls should let theirs go down to the ankles and let their skirts stay there the rest of their natural lives. Clayton Bennett, secretary to the board of directors of state institutions, is afraid of getting in bad if he saya it depends upon tho appearance of the limb exposed as to the length. David P. Johnson, member of the corporation commission and a sure enough good fellow believes - that women should wear skirts from when they get up in the morning until they retire. o TO OPEN DAY SCHOOL III 1111. CRII Articles of incorporation are being drawn up in Phoenix today that an American woman, may open a day school in Xanklng, China. For eight years this woman, a Miss Thirza M. Pierce, taught the little Chinese kiddies, and then came the realization that the mission school was limiting her work. In order that she might do more for the youngsters, whose education is her life work, she decided to open a school with a more progressive policy. With the decision she was confronted with many ob stables in the form of red tape which have led to the drawing up of the articles of incorporation of the Pes talozzl school, which has a number of well-kn6wn educators listed as in corporators, including the mission teacher's brother-ki-law, Dr. R, H. H. Blome. Dr. Blome, state director of voca tional education, said yesterday that Miss Pierce was deeply Interested in 1 . ncr w. one proposes , opening a number of day schools in Nanking, with a number of American teachers TO WE ST1P IN 1 OF DEMOCRATS Speaking in behalf of the Democratic state ami national camnaitrn.

Co. Retail Straight Thinking The easing up of prices will have little serious effect of a permanent na ture and the country should be able to pass through this crisis of readjust ment with a small If any increase in business failures. In fact according to the report of R. G. Dunn and company for August. 1920. there was a slight de crease in the number of commercial in solvencies, although the volume of lia bilities showed a marked augumenta tion. Prices have not and will not reach their lowest levels for some time to come, but beyond qestion we are en tering a buyer's market after a most riotous time of spending. Exports have decreased leaving more goods on the market labor is more plentiful and more efficient; there is more efficiency in production, all of which tends to a downward trend in-prices. Under present conditions that the country is not in a more unfavorable position is due to the functioning of the federal reserve system and the co operation of Die bankr. The federal reserve bank is not realiy a bank, but It i. a law and what it mr and may not do is clearly defined by this law After t he armistke the strain nut i American banking resources by ex- ii.tnding l.usinrss was as great and th Linking credit of the country nas in fl.ited to such a point that disaster jtnisht well have followed had not de flation leen so well and is still heins o well controlled by the federal re- v ' At Switzer's together with a Stupendeous SALE OF RELIABLE FURS You will find here not only a wonderful collection of Smartly Modeled exclusive fash ionsbut you will find them at the .
