CENTRAL ARIZONA
.LIGHT AND POWER
PACIFIC GAS AND
ELECTRIC COMPANY
The Pacific Ou and Electric Com
pany retired from active life yesterday
and the Central Arizona Light and
Power Company took ita place.
A week ago the Corporation Com
ic Umlon issued an order authorizing the
Pacific Gaa and Electric Company to
ell Ita property to the new company
and the papers were executed yester
day by the officer of both companies,
effecting the change. The CltyjCom
tniMlon on "Wednesday passed resolu
tions authorizing the assignment of
gaa and electric franchises.
Tbe growth of the Pacific Gaa and
Electric Company during the past few
year baa been even greater than that
et the City Itself, due largely to the
demands for power for manufacturing
and Irrigation purposes. In January
ef this year a transmission line
seventy miles long was constructed
from Tavapal County to Phoenix, con
iwcting the system here with that of
tbe Arizona Power Company. This
line was cone true ted at a cost of over
a Quarter of a million dollars to Insure
Fbonix against power shortage in
event of failure of the system of the
Water Users Association or a short
are ef water power during dry years.
Daring e period of two weeks last
rummer when a etorm blew down
several miles of the Roosevelt line,
FttoenU would have been without light
r power but for the supply of power
brought over the new line from the
plants of the Arizona Power Company
on the nppet waters of the Verde
River and from Its nine thousand kilo
watt steam plant near Clarkdale. Re
neatly when an oil switch blew up at
the Roosevelt plant, killing two oper
tors and totally disabling that plant
the wheels of industry in the entire
viUIey would have been stopped for
two days, had it not been for this re
srrve supply of power. During these
periods, besides supplying the whole
rtty f Phoenix, the Pacific Gas and
Electric Company has supplied power
the Water Users' Association, which
he made It possible for them to aup
ply the towns of Tempe, Mesa and
Ol-mdale. For the past month the en
tire town of Tempe has been aupplied
from the Phoenix station.
During the past year over one hun
dred thousand dollars has been spent
to construct transmission lines and
ub-etatlons to serve the Avondale
district with irrigation power. These
lines now extend Into the town of
Buckeye, thirty-five miles west of
rhoenlx. As a result cf this develop
ment over seven thousand acres of
desert have sprung into bloom, all
trlbutarv to and sddirg to the wealth
and business of the city of Phoenix.
During the paet eight years when
tbe Gas Company has been under its
present management, the gas plant
generating capacity has ben increased
four hundred per cent and the electric
output has Increased six hundred per
er.t. A new high pressure pas system

work was resumed today in spite of the
dock workers' strike, with 18 steamers
in the harbor waiting their turns to

stevedores have not yet arrived at an
agreement with the shipping com

taken charge of the work and will

The shippers have protested against
the so-called "imposition" of the gov

THIS FOR THE TEA HOUND J
Ten. Hounds Is not a very beautiful
expression, but it fits to a "T a cer
tain class of students in a university.
A Tea Hound, in an attempt at defini
tion, la a vigorous young man, w no n
all sorts of possibilities, but who is so
nice, and bo Btrong with the ladies,
that he can't get away from them. Ihe
result ia that his studies suffer, and,
excepting those of his kind, everyone
around him suffers. He is a pest, and
about as useful as the barnacles wtoich
hang on the bottom of a ship.
Small talk is hla strong poinx ana ne
could fill a book with it. The trouble
would be to find a reader. The bub
bles on a glass of soda pop have more
substance than the subjects which the
Tea Hound generally uses as a basis
for conversation.
A Tea Hound couldn't be a football
player in a thousand years. In the
first place, he hasn't the ambition; in
the second place, he hasn't the nerve;
and in the third place, he might get
his hair mussed up. And thai would
never do.
Just what the Tea Hound expects to
do when he gets out into the world is
a puzzle. He is too nice to do any sort
of manual labor and he usually hasn t
the brains to hold down a real posi
tion. What will he do? The chances
are nine to one that he won't do. Dad
will have to continue to do for him.
In that case, the Tea Hound will be
come a parasite and we shall have to
call him a Tea Hound Parasite.
A parasite, A human parasite.
Could there be anything worse? That
a man could sink so low in the scale of
life is almost unbelievable. Yet some
men there ought to be a law against
calling such a thing a man do sink
just that low. Such a man could never
bleed to death, for only water would
flow from his veins.
The thing for the Tea Hound to do.
or the near Tea Hound, is to stand
himself up In the corner, get back
about six feet, and take an Inventory.
Let him look himself over, and if he
doesn't become absolutely disgusted,
absolutely sick of himself, he is hope
less. If he does take his condition to
heart, there Is some hope. University

Oldest Potrait
Dates to 2000 B. C.

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 14. What 1
believed to be the oldest portrait of f
human being hum been dlaccvered tn
the University of Pennsylvania's mu
seum collection of clay tablets from
Babylon .according to an announce
ment tonight by Dr Leon La. Grain,,
curator of the Babylonian section. The
portrait is on a clay "postage stamp,"
which also served as a seal for a reg
istered package, dated about 2300 B.C.
It is a picture of Ibl-Sln, the last

FRENCH COURT ETIQUETTE
In southern France, 700 years ago,
court etiquette and the forms of social
Intercourse among the nobility were
regulated by women. War yielded to
love and the cultivation of the "gay
science." Each troubadour must elect
some lady, generally the wife or th
daughter of his patron, as the object
of his addresses Gallantry, however,,
must not transcend certain conven
tional limits, under pain of banishment
or of dire physical penalties, of which
the history of the troubadours fur
nishes not a few examples. This sep
aration of passionate devotion from
the idea of marriage has not been with
out its effect upon subsequent society
and literature
The establishment of courts of love
seem so fantastic that their very ex
istence has been doubted. They wer
composed of noble ladles, whose au
thority was regulated by a code or
love, disobedience to which waa pun-:
ished by expulsion. This code is given
by Andre le Chapelain In a Latin treat
ise written about 1180. Of Its 31 max
ims we quote the following:
He who corceala not hs leallngs
from others can not love.
No one can be bound by a double
love. -
Wedlock is no excuse against love.
Love s ever Increasing or diminish
ing'. .
She who survives her lover Is bound
to a two years' widowhood.
It is shame to lave those to marry
whom is shame. -.'
Love published rarely endures. -Easy
acceptance repels love; coy
ness encourages love.
True loves craves not the embrace
of any save its companion.
Every lover la wont to pale in pres
ence of his love.
Full of love U, full of rear.
To a lover, icve can deny nothing. .
He that U overburdened by luxury
can not love.
Nothing crevents one woman being
loved by two men, or two men by on
woman.

With a heart full of gladness Miss Arizona is sowing the seeds of welcome to Phoenix Suburban Day. Next Thursday, November 18, is to be a big day
for demonstrating to the people of this state that Arizona merchants, their stocks and the prices of their goo'ds can't be beat anywhere.
Ascending to the top of the tallest
building In the state Miss Arizona has
mounted the fire wall and Is scattering
to the four winds the seeds of welcome
to Suburban day.
. The Suburban day poster girl, with
an idea of having this picture mean
more than just a poster, asked to be
posed at the highest point in Khoenix
that the invitation she extend .miht
be most far reaching, and that in the
background might bo seen some of the
buildings of the merchants who are
co-operating to make such a big event
of Suburban day.
Next Thursday, November 18 is the
first Phoenix Suburban day. Prac
tically every merchant in Thoenix has
joined heartily in the plan to present
on that day bargains and values such
as will prove to everybody in Arizona
that there is ho better place to trade
1 than in their own state.
If big stocks, low prices and the best
of courtesy will help the Phoenix mer
chants push the mail-order catalogs
out of Arizona they surely will beat a
hasty retreat, for the merchants are
planing big things.
The announcements of the merchants
showing their extra specials for the
Thursday gala event will appear in
Wednesday's paper. Their stores are
being put in apple-pie order, stocks
are being attxaclvely shown and a
number of surprises are promised.
Thursday men and women will be In
Phoenix from the four corners of the
state. They will make big savings on
what they buy and they will go home
convinced that Arizona merchants can
f;il all their needs and at proper prices.
Watch for the poster girl. Miss Arizo
na, will be one the window cards of
all the stores up and down the streets
to proclaim the individual etores' In
terest in Phoenix Suburban day.
