THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN. MONDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1920.
PAGE THREE . 1 3 74S 1 i GREAT IE ClliOT PROGRAM MAY CBfiE S BEFORE That members of congress from western states are auietlv oriranizinsr to develop a $300,000,000 reclamation program, and that the results of their work may become apparent aa early as the short session at the beginning of the year, Is the outstanding feature oZ the latest bulletin of the Western Reclamation association. Par- r. j . 1 - . tic-yiar stress is laid also on the fa vorable attitude of President-elect Harding: and the Republican party to ward the development of the resources of the western states. Kxtraets from the bulletin follow: "Significant developments are oc curring in Washington at this time which -will be of much importance to our association. This Is the report we are getting from a number of members of congress from the western states and also from unprejudiced private tourccs not Interested in reclamation development in the West. An agency In the national capital In a letter to clients under date of No vember 8 contains this paragraph: vestern members of congress are quietly organizing to put over a three hundred million dollar reclamation program. It la predicted that with the republican party pledged, through Its president-elect and national platform, to a great and comprehensive plan, that developments may be expected to taKe place, it not during the short ses sion. at the regular session In March "When such news as this, coupled with the avowed declaration of former opponents of reclamation on Impor tent house committees, that they could now see a reason for a strong federal program, it is our belief that ne may b optimlstl-1 ginning Wednesday, November representative of the Western aies Keciamation association cegan a series of conferences in Washing ton with political and legislative lead- era with the Intention of recommend Insr to the executive committee of the association the complete suggestions as to the part which the association must Play during the short session and if necessary leading up to the regular session In furthering our cause, 'In connection with the results of the recent election It is Interesting to re v.eat the tdatform declaration of the T'epublican party, which said: " 'We favor a fixed and comprehen sive policy of reclamation. We recog nize In the development of reclamation through Federal action with Its in crease of production and taxable wealth a safesnaard for tho nation " We commend to congress a policy to reclaim lands and the establishment of a fixed national policy of develop mnt of natural resources In relation to reclamation through the now desig nated government agencies. ."On August 30. speaking before group of western governors who tailed to nav their respects, Senator Warren G. Harding (now president olect) while giving an extremely favor Hble address said among other things "1 undertake to say that there is no region In the world whose resources could be developed to the utmost with preater benefit to the world as a whole : i.u America in particular, than our mountain west. I would not hesi tate to employ Federal credit for reclamation work. What is really needed is the completion of the recla mation program which began 1913. We ought to go on with a larger and more liberal plan made practical In the light of our experience.' "It is a pleasure to announce that it will be possible to again secure the highly efficient services of former Governor Spry of Utah to look after the Interests of the association during the short session. At tne August meeting of the ex ecutlve committee and representatives of the leading western railroads, a suf ficlent budget was planned and its probable expenditures outlined to take care of the matters of the Western States Reclamation association and its activities through the short session. This budget anticipated tha publicity and legislative plan outlined at that meeting. It covered the matter of tho, different states in the association pay ing the balance of the original budget created a year ago in Salt Lake City and a like amount was pledged from the railroads represented. This was considered at the August meeting to be- sufficient for the association's needs and was formed after due con sideration had been given to accom plishments during the year and the necessities of the future. "It was advised at that time that each state be communicated with in view of our impending sessions of leg lslaturea and that these legislatures be asked to appropriate an amount equal to the original sum apportioned to the different states, to be used when needed in future activities of the asso ciation." o 1ASIR COMPLAIi OF JAIL SENTENCE Talk With LEE MEREDITH Representing Mutual Life . of NeW York Oldest in America Phones: 696, 8438 There is something wrong! Stanley Barton has been "throwed in Jail twict fer nuthln'." He said so himself after he had been sentenced to serve 15 days in the city Jail when found guilty of misconduct in police court Saturday. 'Tm goln' to see about this thing! threatened Barton as he was ushered Into a cell he had deserted only two weeks ago. Barton was found guilty of forcing his attention upon a young married woman. The defendant insisted it was the woman who persisted in annoying him. "Judge, she Jes' kept smllin at me an' I didn't want nuthin' to do with her, but she acted so like she wanted my company that I finally did say 'how-de-do.' " The complaining witness told the court that Barton followed her several blocks and finally had the temerity to sneak to her. Although she tried every way to avoid him the ."masher' Insisted he was going to accompany her home. "I then told him I was married and my husband would make trouble." the witness said. "He asked me if my hiiatiaml had a aun at home." Even the threat of an angry husband with a gun didn't seem to intimidate Barton, but a call to the police station relieved the situation. barton was released from Jail tw ii-rpka nro after serving a sentence for vagrancy. "Vnn Htuck me onct fer nuthin an now vou're doin' it again." he com plained when sentence was passed yes terday. NOT A -CHEAP DUCHESS" told stories about Queen Victoria. The one I liked best was of nor correction of a daft letter to say that the duchess of Connaught was to loin the queen's train. The queen, wrote in tipncil on the draft. "iou snouia ai ways describe the duchess as 'her royal highness,' to show, that she is not common duchess.'" RESULTS MEETING IH CANADA VERSES 01 GYPSY ROUE Vincent Woodbury, brother of Clar- sce Woodbury of Phoenix, is a much traveled observer and a well-known writer on a variety of topics. He has isitcd Phoenix and has lived in many parts of the world, and he has let the public know in a delightful and inter- sting manner what he thought about them. Mr. Woodbury was recently in veigled into poetry which, is here sub Joined. It was written at a hotel at Haileybury, Ontario. While waiting at Porquis Junction for a train to Haileybury, Mr. Wood bury encountered a lot of gypsies and getting into a talk with a handsome oung woman among thorn, his inter est was aroused by a statement by her that the band had visited Phoenix. Further conversation led her to" admit that she ha'd fallen in love with a young man at Tempe and marriage was considered. But she did not care to leave Iter nomadic life and the young man did not want to become a gypsy, Said Mr. Woodbury. "I gathered all I could from her, because she was nice to listen to and easy to look at, and after an hour and a half. Just aa my train to Haileybury came in, I said, The next time you see me youH have something to remember!' Her eyes flashed, and with a spirit she replied, 'The everlasting same non sense. "'No, I parried, 'not that nonsense. but your verses in a gringo song service.' " And here are the verses: Maid and I, of the sunlight Yet he was a Gringo lad; But his eyes would glow with love we know When the Gipsy heart shines glad. Maid and I, of the Nomads But the stars told not my fate, For a gentle lad, that the moon made mad Wooed me for his mate. f Maid and I. of the Gipsies And he was a lad in love For he won a hawk, with his gentle talk In songs of a turtle dove. Maid and I, yet I loved him, Though maid I shall always te. - For my heart shall sigh, and I know why For he hath enlightened me! Lad was he, and he hungered For caresses that swayed to pain. For we sealed our plight on a starless night And the sunshine it brought was rain. Maid and I. and I yearned To lead him to the tribe with my heart. But he hung his head and my heart felt lead He ashamed! Of the Gipsy part! Lad was he .and he pleaded, J Urged a Gringo life in vain. But no gipsy e'er has lived, I swear . A Gringo mistress stain. Parted we then in fire His tears and my laughter bold. The Brown and The White as day, as night. The unfold story untold! Tea Maid am I. and I left him West back to my Sunny South For this Lad I wait my bosom mate My lips an inch from hjs mouth. , o . The exclamation "Oh. dear me!" is corruption of "Oh.
