Will "Gently But Firmly"
Insist oh Institution
Central Federation Holds
Semi-Annual Meeting
; . What prevented the passage of the
Z-rTiill creating a separate reform school
,tor girls?
That question will be put to every
member of the fifth state legislature
n accordance with a resolution
passed at the semi-annual meeting
of the Central District Federation of
Women's clubs yesterday. Every
senator and representative will be
called to account for the failure of
the measure to pass.
"What were the defects in the bill?
will be another querji the legislators
will be asked, and their replies will
be filed with Miss Louise Freeland,
chairman ot social and industrial re
lations of the state federation and
vice president of the district federa
tion of clubs. '
In a talk on 'The Responsibility of
Club Women for Delinquent Women
and Girls" at the yesterday meeting,
which was attended by delegates from
the 19 clubs in the federation in ad-
Hillnn in Plieats of the ClUbS tO a
...nh.r thut tnxpd the capacity ot
the Woman's club. Miss Freeland
charged the clubwomen to look Into
the matter.
"Don't let any legislator tell you
there was no time to put in through
that last night. Why did they wait
until the last night why did they
place It on the table, off the table,
under the table, in the waste basket,
all for delay? They can not say that
women were not interested in the
bill," said Miss Freeland.
Urges Campaign for School
Miss Freeland would leave no doubt
in the minds of the members 01 tne
legislature now as to the interest of
club women. She would swamp them
with letters and in the fall would in
augurate a definite campaign for a
'separate Bchool for girls who are at
present in the same institution at
Fort Grant as the delinquent boys of
the stat.
Miss Freeland said that she had
learned from "reliable sources" that
there would be a special session of
the legislature next year' and she
urged the federation to "politely but
firmly' 'insist that the governor In
clude legislation along this line In his
call for the special session.
The speaker called attention to the
fact, that the women who were ap
pointed on a committee to select a
site for the reform school were al
lowed $500 for traveling expenses
which they cut to $170. She also em
prasized the point that no bribes
were offered the committee for the
selection of any particular site in
her opinion because the committee
was composed entirely of women.
Officers Elected
Miss Freeland made the closing ad
dress of the convention after which
election of officers was held, Mrs. C.
A. Robinson being the unanimous
choice for president. Mrs. Robinson
has been active in club work in Glen
dale and Feoria and was the former
first vice president of the federation.
Miss Freeland will act as first vice
president for the coming club year
and Mrs. E. D. Ryder of the Neigh
borhood club, second vice president;
Mrs. George C. Barnum of the Har
mony club, recording secretary; Mrs.
"reig Scott of the-Osborn Woman's
club, corresponding secretary; Mrs.
W. M. Beach, Mesa Woman's club,
treasurer and Mrs. A. M. Harmer of
the Chandler Woman's club, auditor.
The next meeting of the federation
will be held in October, the Madison
Woman's club being the hostess or
ganization. The convention yesterday was one
of the most successful ever held from
point of attendance and program.
The addresses were unusually clever
and the reports showed the progress
and worth while activities of the
clubs affiliated with the federation.
The club house was in gala attire
for the event. Spring flowers were
used in decoration a great bowl of
hundreds of sweet peas having place
of prominence on the speaker's table.
The convention was called to order
by Mrs. II. C. Lockett, after which
the invocation was made by Dr. R. E.
Elmore of the Christian church.
Mrs. Joseph Stark, president of the
Woman's club, the hostess club made
a graceful address of welcome and a
charming response was made by Mrs.
C. A. Robinson. s
President Makes Report
The feature of the morning session
was the report of the president, in
which she included a number of re
commendations. "A thing which I had hoped to in
augurate this year and which I pass
on as a recommendation to the in
coming administration is that the
Central Arizona District Federation
issue a small magazine or bulletin ot
club news and announcements ' and
matters of general interest to our own
particular clubs.. This is one of the
progressive things coming out in
some other states, and some samples
sent me have been most attractive,"
she said.
Mrs. Lockett laid much stress on
the value of publicity, urging the
club women to co-operate with the
press. .
Shj alsoadvocated the reorganiza
tion of departments of work to con
form with the policy of the national
federation "Fall in line" was her ad
vice to the clubs.
The report of the convention of the
state federation of musical clubs
which met in Miami a week ago was
made by the president Mrs. Henry D.
Ross. The report presented by Mrs.
Ross showed the remarkable growth
of a federation organized
At the conclusion of her talk a? mo
tion was made and passed to send a
message of sympathy to Mrs. Fowler,
who was a leader in the club move
ment in Arizona for a number of
years. A floral tribute will also be
sent by the federation.
The resolution adopted was to the
effect that "Whereas our founder and
first president, Mrs. B. A. Fowler, has
today suffered the bereavement and
loss of her husband, to whose work
as a constructive citizen the com
munity owes a debt of gratitude, be it
hereby resolved that the Central Ari
zona District Federation of Clubs ex
tend its sincerest sympathy to Mrs.
Fowler in this hour of her sorrow."
Among others the following reso
lutions were passed:
"Resolved that particular attention
should be called to the work initiated
by Mrs. Grieg Scott in the formation
of the monthly council meeting as a
source of inspiration and invaluable
information to the department of the
district clubs and also heartily en
dorse the recommendations for de
partment reorganization along lines
adopted by the general federation."
Realizing the uplifting influence
of good music, be it resolved that we
endorse the work of the state federa
tion of musical clubs as presented by
Mrs. Henry D. Ross."
"Whereas public health nursing as
presented by Miss Etelka Weiss, pub.
lie health nurse, is in line with the
policy of the federation, that we urge
club women to give this work their
hearty co-operation."
''vS hereas the women of the Central
Arizona District Federation of Wo
men's clubs are deeply interested in
the question of the care and training
of delinquent women and girls, be it
hereby resolved that each club by
writing to Its senator and representa
tive find out what defects In the bill
creating a model reform school for
girls separate from the one for boys
at Ft. Grant prevented Its passage
that such replies be filed with the
chairman of social and industrial re
lations of the state federation in or
der that such legislation be created as
will accomplish the erection of the
above mentioned Institution."

The controversy between W. C. Al
len and the board of supervisors over
a strip of roadway along Southern
avenue, having a width of 33 feet,
after considerable sparring, yesterday
reached the superior court in the
form of an injunction suit by Allen
against the board of supervisors,
County Engineer Harry Vernon and
the members of the county highway
Southern avenue at the place where
it passes through or along the land
of Allen Is only 33 feet wide, and it
is alleged in the complaint that that
is the width that has been maintained
without question for the last 20
years. Within the 33-foot strip ad-
-L joining this highway Allen has a
barn, a garage and a wire fence, all
of which might be removed.
But he also has an 80-foot well
which is more difficult of transplan
tation. It is equipped with a pump
and a pump house over it and a stor
age tank.
Southern avenue is a part of the
county highway program and when
the contractor reached that disputed
section the county authorities began
.the removal of the fences of Allen
and threatened to sweep the whole
tract clear of all otner obstructions,
bringing that 650-foot strip to the
regulation width of 66 feet.
There had been a tentative prop
osition on the part of Allen to the
board of supervisors for an amicable
settlement of the dispute by the pur
chase of the strip. That was rejected
on the" ground that if, as is claimed
the land already belonged to the
county, it could not be lawfully pur
chased: if it did not, the county could
proceed only in the regular way to
acquire it.
The suit filed yesterday not only
asks that the defendants be enjoined
from trespassing upon the property
of the plaintiff, but that a judgment
for $100 be given him for damage al
ready done. Judge Stanford direct
ed a temporary writ to issue.
Among pioneers to whom the desig
nation may be given with emphasis
is James Pearce, who for more than
44 years has been living In Taylor,
Navajo county, and who at the age
of 82 remembers every event connect
ed with his arrival In Arizona in 1858
or 63 years ago.
Pearce is a native of Mississippi,
where he was bom in 1839. He came
west to Utah in 1852, and served with
the Utah militia against the Indians
before coming to Arizona. He was
the first white settler on Silver creek.
having tal;en up his residence near
the present town of Snowflake.
Pearce's first visit to Arizona in
1858. was made as Mormon mission
ary among the Indians. He entered
the state rfgain !n 1S60. a!er having
left it for a short time, nd among
his memories of this early day is the
death of his partner. George Albert
Smith, who was killed by Navajo In
dians 25 miles west of the Oriba vil
lage. Another incident Peace recalled
during the reunion yesterday con
cerned the time when he with several
others was driving in three steers, the
flesh of which was to be "jerked, or
dried In the sun.' The Indians stole
the steers and the party returned

leading them on the warpath. Pearce
spoke the Piute tongue, and he and a
friend with, him gave the savages
some blankets and endeavored to
make friends with them, but without
much success.
When the two white men resumed
their journey they discovered that
two of the Indians were following
them. One of the savages was armed
with an old rifle and the other had a
bow and arrows. After having been
followed for some time, Peanre an

along the trail and then Pearce

One of the most attractively ap
pointed weddings of spring took place
yesterday afternoon when Miss Alice
Peek became the bride of J. Robert
Fleming at the home of her brother,
Howard W. Peek of 552 East More-
land street. i
The living room where the cere-!
mony took place was converted into
a veritable conservatory with the
wealth of flowers used in carrying
out an artistic decorative scheme.
Against a background of ferns every
variety of spring bloom lent charm
to the arrangement.
Miss Josephine Fleming of Boston
was the maid of honor and only at
tendant. She wore a fetching rock
of gray Canton crepe with a touch
of blue, giving a contrasting color
touch to the effective costume. She
carried tea roses.
The bride, who was given away by
her brother, wore her traveling suit,
a smart tailored costume of navy
blue. Her flowers were rose buds.
Carl Fleming served as his broth
er's best mart and the service was
read by Rev, George Logie of the
Presbyterian church. Only the im
mediate relatives and a few close
friends were present at the ceremo
ny, which took place at 5 o'clock and
was followed by a buffet supper. Mr.
and Mrs. Fleming left last evening
for the Grand Canyon,- where they
will spend a two weeks' honeymoon.
They will take up their permanent
residence in Phoenix, Mr. Fleming be
ing associated with Mr. Peek in the
cotton brokerage business.
