Vpon assuming the duties of the
office of nresident, J. Arthur Tobias
outlined the purposes of the Adver
tising club of Phoenix, the service to
be rendered by It to the business men
and 'general public of the city, and
the high aspects of truthful adver
tising. Address of President.
Mr. Tobias spoke aa follows:
I want to tell you that I gTeatty
appreciate the honor conferred on me
tonight, and doubly so, for the confi
dence placed in me, as I have only
been In your city a little over nine
months. But I want to make you one
promise, and I want the Press to get
this as long as I am president of
the Advertising club of Phoenix, the
advertising faker and the fly-by-night
who make this city, are going
to have a "hell of a stormy career."
"And now gentlemen, a few remarks
about advertising. I might use a lit
tle rough language and "take the
bide" from many of my friends as
, well as from the friends of those here
tonight, but please do, not take of
fense at what I might say for the
reason I am going to tell you the
truth. .
v "Fifteen years ago had I asked one
of you for an advertisement you
would have considered me a grafter:
but today the advertising seller, the
advertising writer and the advertls
ing manager are considered profess
lonal men. It Is a legitimate business
and one that it takes brains to handle,
i
Advertising, is not a game being
played only in your own locality, but
is one that is being played the world
over. It is not a business of today,
but a business of tomorrow and the
most vital feature in advertising is
truth. No man can advertise un
truthfully and survive and every ad
vertiser knows it.
"Advertising today is the most po
tent factor In the business world. It
is the door of your business house
and through your advertisements the
people must see what you have, what
prices you are selling at and what
quality you are selling. If you teli
them In advertisement that you are
giving them something you must
produce that something or your ads
In the future -will be ineffective. The
people will read them, maybe, but
they will not believe them."
"The purpose of this Ad club is not
to further the interest of any one
braftch of advertising or anyone s
class of business, but. It Is to study
the elements, of advertising and there
is only one way for success, and that
Is through co-operation and unity.
You have live organizations in the
chamber of commerce, the M. & M..
the Rotary and Klwanis clubs and
you should support .them. The Ad
club will not conflict with the work of
these organizations, but on the con
trary should benefit them and work in
conjunction with them.
"Now down to the Ad club itself.
Tbe most vital feature of the organi
zation is the educational department.
The value of an educational commit
tee Is the greatest factor. Through
lectures arranged by them and
through careful study the members of
this committee will be In a position to
show you where your ads are Inef
fective, where they are not producing
results and will offer suggestions to
remedy this. When they arrange a
lecture, by all means attend it. Even
though you take time away from some
thing else, gentlemen, it will not have
been wasted for 1 have never attended
an ad club meeting that- I did not
learn something that helped me in my
business.
"Not long ago I was in a certain
city and while riding on the street car
I heard a woman ask the conductor
to let her off on a certain street. The
conductor told her that he was going
to the end of the line and that he did
not know where her street was. Do
you think that woman was favorably-
impressed with the city? Do you
think it is good advertising for a
cltv when that woman, who undoubt
edly was a stranger, left there and
told her friends about that little in
cident?
"Why, over In Dallas, Texas, the
street railway officials are made to
print a book, bound in morocco, so
that they would not sweat it out dur
ing the summer, listing all of the
streets, public buildings and largest
business buildings. The Dallas Ad
club was behind that movement and
they gave the city valuable advertis
Ing by doing it. It is community ad
vertising that counts. The chamber
of commerce and the M. & M., will
bring people here, but you men. you
business men, must have attractive
window displays, attractive advertise
ments In newspapers and on tbe bill
boards. Tou must have your address
on the ad in large letters so that a
stranger can find you. Advertise
correctly In the city and the city will
then advertise itself.
"Many newspapers of the United
States Bhould be ashamed of them
selves for taking advertisements of
patent medicines and other advertise
ments that would make a woman
blush should Bhe read them. It is
done by many of the newspapers in
the United States and I assure you that
clean advertising can never be
brought about until this sort of ad
vertising Is eliminated.
"Tell the truth in your advertising.
If you are a merchant do not say in
an ad that 'This is undoubtedly the
biggest bargain ever offered in this
city,' when you know that your com
petitor across the street is selling the
same thing at the same cost. The
people will find it out and will look
upon your advertising purely as catch
pennies and not as guides to your
business as they should be.
"The established probity of Ameri
can advertising has never been more
dramatically displayed than in this
reconstructive campaign of the past
few months. Without it, the read
justment of prices would have been
an uncertain, laborious and haphaz
ard process. Advertising has provid
ed the huge volume of business, with
out which such price reductions would
have been flatly unprofitable. It has
procured the rapid turnover. The
rapid turnover is the only thing that
compensates for reduced profit mar
gin. .
"A two per cent profit on $100 is
only $2; but If it happens once a
month it is as good as 24 per cent
a year. That Is why present prices
are possible. They mean a drastic

gates Bishop Stanford
Speaks
With the appointment of diocesan
officers and the naming of commit
tee members for the next year, the
1921 convocation of the Protestant
Episcopal church in Arizona came to
an end yesterday afternoon. The
convocation, with which was allied
the consecration of the new Trinity
cathedral and the. celebration of the
tenth anniversary of the elevation of
the Rt. Rev. Julius W. Atwood to the
episcopate as bishop of Arizona, is
regarded as having been the most
successful and important ever held.
It was said yesterday that It undoubt
edly will have a profound effect upon
the future welfare of the Protestant
Episcopal communion in this section
of the Southwest.
, The diocesan appointments made
yesterday are as follows:
The Rev. J. Rock wood Jenkins,
archdeacon; the Rev. Bertrand R.
Cocks, general missionary; M. A.
Morford. diocesan treasurer; the Rev.
J. Rock wood Jenkins, registrar;

a half hour later. The address was
delivered by the Rt- Rev. L. C. Stan
ford, bishop of San Joaquin, Calif.,
whose theme was a general one and
embraced all the activities of the
Protestant Episcopal church. Lunch
eon was served at 1 o'clock to the
delegates and the convocation was
convened again at 2:30 o'clock in the
afternoon, when the Rev. W. J. Dixon
read his report on the state of the
church in Arizona. This and the
appointments for the ensuing year
brought to the convocation to an end.

Gradual decline in building costs
promises an early revival in building
activity in Phoenix, local builders and
contractors declared yesterday. In
addition to considerable private con
struction enterprises which are now
under way or are to be started in the
near ftfture, there is to be consider
able public work.
Present building costs are approxi
mately 20 per cent lower than during
the 1919 peak, builders announced.
This decline has been gradual over a
period of several months. The pres
ent trend is downward. It was pointed
out, indicating that the pre-war level
soon will be reached.
Among the new construction to be
started in the near future or actually
under way at the present time is the
new union depot to be jointly occu
pied by the Santa Fe, and the Ari
zona Eastern. Plans are steadily go
ing forward for this addition to the
city which will rob comedians of their
most 'favorite Joke.
Excavation has been completed for
the foundation of the $500,000 Elks
clubhouse at Second avenue and
Adams street. It is expected that this
fine structure will be occupied by
fall. Phoenix Elks then will have a
home second to none in the West and
one of the finest In the country.
The new Rialto theater on West
Washington street is so far advanced
that the interior is beginning to as
sume proportions and give some idea
of the fine amusement house this city
is to have, a theater to take its place
with the beat in cities several times
the size of Phoenix.
Other structures under way and
which will be completed in the near
future are the Walker hotel, the
Deaconess hospital, and three grade
school buildings. The combined out
lay contemplated for these five struc
tures totals well over $500,000.
Among new construction soon to be
undertaken is the new Country club,
revised plans for which were recent
ly completed by the architectural urm
of Lescher. Kibbey & Maloney. Bids
for the structure are now being re
ceived and will be opened at o'clock
p. m., April 12.
Other substantial structures, plans
for which have been announced and
which are certain In the near future,
are the office building and theater to
be erected at Washington and First
streets and two buildings to be added
to the high school group.
Faith in Phoenix remains unshaken
during the present financial slump
and it is confidently expected that
within a few months this city will
experience a general building boom
which will continue for some time.

BAD
STOCK IT SO
AS WERE REPORTED
That livestock conditions are not
as bad in the west as many stockmen
have been led to believe and as stock
buyers would like to have them be
lieve, is the opinion of Secretary
Stephens of the livestock sanitary
board. Prices of beef cattle, he says,
are ridiculously low. much lower than
actual conditions warrant. Stock -growers
have been told by buyers for
the large packing houses, especially
those of the Pacific coast, that there
is a plethora of beef cattle, when, as
a matter of fact, there is a shortage.
This propaganda has enabled them
to make purchases at ruinously low
prices. He instanced a recent sale
of fat steers at $7.10, a.t a loss to the
seller ot not less than J25 a head.
There Is. said Mr. Stephens, much
more feed in the country than is gen
erally supposed to be and there will
be more in consequence of the tem
porary lull of activity in the mining
camps. There will shortly be much
more pasturage in the valleys.
Range conditions, he said, have
been exaggerated. While the desert
ranges are below par In consequence
of the belated rains, the mountain
ranges are in very good shape. The
scrub leaves are coming out and are
furnishing good browsing.
Word received at the office of the
livestock board yesterday indicated
that the rain of yesterday was quite
general throughout the state. Flag
staff reported a heavy fall of wet
snow. It was raining at Globe and
Jerome.
reduction of profit on each single
sale; but advertising has increased
the rapid frequence of sales to a point
at which the merchant gets a rea
sonable return on his investment, yet
at prices so low that the man in the
street is at last realizing that his dol
lar is again approaching 100 cents In
value.
"This should kill once and for all
the silly and obsolete argument that
advertising is expensive and an ex
travagance. It is either. It is the
most beneficent Influence In modern
trade. It is good for those who write,
those who sell and those who read
advertisements. It is a strong,
staunch pillar of modern economy."
GAMEWELL ALARM
SYSTEM TO BE ASKED
BY CHIEF OF POLICE
Convinced that the Phoenix police
department is greatly handicapped
by lack of modern equipment. Chief
of Police Brisbols announced yester
day that he intends to ask that an
appropriation of $10,000 for a Game
well alarm system be included in
the city budget which will be made
up July 1.
"Without an adequate alarm sys
tem it Is impossible to keep in close
touch with patrolmen on beats." the
chief declared. He expressed himself
as very much in favor of patrol
methods used by the police depart,
ment at San Diego, Calif., where two
motorcycle policemen remain on duty
at headquarters to answer all calls
from outlying districts. This ar
rangement gives two men to handle
every arrest, and in case a prisoner
is tractable, the patrolman In the
case can turn his man over to the
motorcycle officer and continue on
his beat.
Other immediate needs of the local
department as outlined by the chief
yesterday include a combined am
bulance and patrol wagon, an emer
gency hospital and a new jail. Ha
said that although these things could
not be expected very soon, plans for
their future adoption were being
made.
Referring - to the need for a new
jail, the chief said that the Phoenix
jail now is housing more prisoners
than were confined in the jail at San
Diego when he visited it about a
week ago. He also drew a compari
son between the jail at San Diego
where meals are prepared for the
prisoners at a cost of 10 cents a per
son, with the meals served prisoners
here under contract at 25 cents each.
In connection with the identifica
tion bureau which has met with the
approval of Mayor Plunkett and al
ready is under process of establish
ment here. Chief Brisbois said he
contemplated adding a professional
photographer to the force.
"Agreeing that photographic work
can be done outside the department
at a lower cost, there are other
phases of this work to be consid
ered," the chief said. "We may sub
mit a negative to an outside photo
grapher who finds a personal interest
in the subject. There is no way we
can hold him responsible for the suc
cessful development of that nega
tive."
The Importance of photographs
was emphasized by the chief by the
declaration: "Picking up a criminal
is the easiest part. The real work
in a modern police department is
done In the identification bureau.'
To illustrate, he showed how crimi
nal records were kept in the depart
ment at Berkeley, Calif. Every com
plaint there Is recorded In detail
Notation is made bf whether the per
son attacked was an agent, profes
sional man, paymaster or engaged lr
other occupation, also in case of b
glary whether the place entered wae
residence, bank, depot or other busi
ness building, church or school. Then
the method of attack or entrance Is
minutely decribed and also the
weapon used or tools used.
Explaining that most criminals
worked along peculiarly character
istic lines, the chief showed how such
a record would immediately identifv
a paroled convict who returned to his
old habits.
"It fingerprints are left 'on the
Job.' complete identification can be
made by comparing them with fin
gerprints on file in the bureau," the
chief explained.
worn is being rusned on the new
record room at headquarters. The
finishing coat of paint was added ves-
terday and the installation of filing
equipment for the inauguration of a
modern identification bureau prob
ably will be compteted this week.

RECENT ARREST
William F. Seeman, who was ar
rested Saturday afternoon on tele
graphic advices from Vale, Ore., by
the sherifrs . office, yesterday was
ordered discharged from custody by
Judge Joseph S. Jenckes after a hear
ing of a habeas corpus proceedings
before him. The order was made
upon the grounds that Seeman-was
being held without a warrant. The
wire from Vale stated that Seeman
was wanted there on a felony war
rant. Seeman had been released from
custody Sunday under a bond of X500.
According'to a statement made by
Seeman. the charge arose from the
moving by him of an automobile pur
chased on contract to Phoenix from
Idaho. The purchase, pe said, was
made in Oregon and permission was
given to move the car to Idaho. Dur
ing the past five months, Seeman
said, he has made the regular monthly
payments on the car. making the last
one after his arrival In Phoenix in
the latter part of March. The car, he
said, was moved from Oregon by the
consent of all Involved.

Developments involving the taking
recently of two barrels of grain al
cohol, consigned to St. Joseph's hos
pital, from the Santa Fe depot and
their removal by others after the al
leged taker of the alcohol had buried
it near Chandler, brought four men
before United States Commissioner
Henke Saturday afternoon. Chesley
M. Ball, allias C. F. McDonald,
pleaded guilty to taking the alcohol
and was held to answer to the federal
court. W. T. West. Ross M. Chilvers
and James Marshall Tabor waived a
hearing on a charge of conspiracy
and taking the alcohol after it had
been buried and were held to answer.
All four were committed to the coun
ty jail when they failed to make
bonds of $2,000 each.
According to the story told by the
officers, the tlcohol arrived late one
afternoon and disappeared that night.
Ball, who had been employed by the
Santa Fe In the freight house, failed
to appear for work the next day, they
said, and later waa arrested In
Chandler by Deputy Sheriff Beck
ham. The officers said they found
where Ball had buried the barrels of
liquor, but someone had removed
them. A search was then made, the
officers said, for men selling alcohol,
with the result that West. Chilverf
and Tabor were arrested by Deputy
Marshal Fred Weage, who, according
to the officers, found the barrels, dug
them up and removed them to Phoe
nix. One barrel had been disposed oi.
the officers said, but the other was
recovered.
Ball is charged with breaking W

ATTORNEY DECLARES
ARIZONA ALONE HAS
RIGHT OVER LANDS
That Arizona may force the secre
tary of the interior and the commis
sioner of the general land office to
desist from disposing of public lands
In this state is the gist or a com
munication received yesterday by W.
J. Galbraith,. attorney general, from
Walter Holland, of the law offices
of Benj. F. Nysewander, Washington.
D. C. Holland's letter. In which he
declares that a recent ruling of the
United States interior department
has given a precedent concerning the
public lands and that he is willing
to begin an injunction suit upon only
a contingent fee, follows:
We propose that you bring suit for
your state, against the secretary of
interior and commissioner of the gen
eral land office In Washington, en
joining them from further disposition
of the public lands within the boun
daries of your state.
W e believe so strongly In the jus
tice and success of the proposed suit
that we will undertake to assist you
in tbe prosecution of the suit, on a
contingent basis, and take as our fee
lands when and if recovered.
Our proposition is made to you in
view of the recent decision of the
United States Interior department
holding that the state of Texas has
the power to make grants of public
lands within its borders, not by virtue
of a grant from congress but by
virtue of its sovereignty as an Amer
ican state, citing the fact that all. the
original states have this power.
The supreme court says ''To this
we may add that the constitutional
equality of the states is. essential to
the harmonious operation of the
scheme upon which the republic was
organized. When the equality dis
appears we may remain a free peo
ple, but the union will not be the
union of te constitution." Coyle vs.
Smith. 221 U. S. 559.
Surely you will not stand Idle,
when other states are claiming their
equality with the original states. The
original states and Texas, are now
actively using this power, and the
federal government is without power
to make grants of public lands, with
in the boundaries of states, as that
is a state power and function. The
power of disposition by the govern
ment is only to dispose of "territory
and other proDertv of the TTnitoH
("States" and when congress disposes
ui ifuerci territory by making it a
state it clothes the new state with all
