PAGE SEVEN G1RLSEH IS THAMKS TO THE REPUBLICAN FOR KIDDIES PICNIC Here is a letter from an apprecia tive little girl, one of the quests at The Republican's nicnic at Riverside Park: "Phoenix. Arizona, "July 30. "Arizona Republican. "Hear Friends: "Please let me thank you people for the lovely time I had at River side. It certainly was kind of you people to show us the best time v. t hud thi summer. It mane me so happy to think that I could be there and see all those thousands with smiles on when they went through the irate to get their tickets for ke cream and lemonade. at certain ly was kind of you people to let the children have the pool free-. I was glad. to aee so many children having 'a good time that had no mama or papa to give it to them. I .have a fine picture in my mind of the chil dren in swimming. It made me so happy to see so many poor children pet a drink of lemonade and after that, an ice cream cone. It was enough to make, you happy if you were there, to see those children run ning around with smiles on their faces. I hope there will be other places in the state that will show the children a good tune UKe ine te nuhlican did. -I am not much of a letter writer, but" I want. to thank those who have been good to me and the children of Maricopa county. "Thanking you ege.in for showing so many of the children a good time, a friend, "ELIZABETH POWERS." "P. S. We always enjoy reading The Republican. I am 14 years old. Could this be put tn the paper, be cause I want everybody to know that I appreciate their kindness. "Please thank Richards & Nace for their kindness to the children and tell them that the music was fine that the men played to dance by." Another aftermath of the picnic was an outing given yesterday to the carriers of The Republican for their untiring service at the picnic, where many of them worked all day In as--eiating to care for the crowds. Great loads of them were taken to Mesa, where there was to be baseball, watermelons and whatever else car riers like o Prince William, son of the king of Sweden, has trapped, single-handed, 24 gorillas. 14 lions and many other nimals which he is taking to the Stockholm museum. ' As a tribute to American soldiers who fell in the great war, a large wreath was officially placed in the American cemetery at Winchester. England, on Memorial day. GROWERS TO MAKE PROTEST IT BE T E INCREASE The conference of hay growers to be held at the offices of the state cor poration commission yesterday was postponed until Thursday, only one representative of the hay industry be ing present at the hour set, though messages from others were received saying-that they would call later in the day. The object of the conference was to discuss methods or presenting to the interstate commerce commission at a forthcoming meeting the reasons why the 25 per cent increase made to intrastate rates should be rescinded as to hay and grain, which otherwise would be excluded from the markets. It was also expected to select a rep resentative in the capacity of a "wit ness" to go to Washington to present the case of the hay growers, i It had been the wish of the mem bers of the commission as well as representative hay growers that County Agent H. C. Heard should De delegated for this purpose, out a curious and most unexpected ob stacle has presented itself to that in an interpretation of a ruling attect ir.g government attaches of the ex ecutive departments. , That regulation is one which pre vents attaches from lobbying in con gress, as is plainly stated, in mat ters relating to appropriations, pre sumably appropriations which affect the departments to which they be long. I But the department of agriculture, to which Mr. Heard is attached, rules that it applies not only to the ac tivities of attaches in congress in the matter of appropriations but also to the appearance of attaches in any matter under consideration by any other department or a bureau of an other department. That is regarded as a very forced construction, but having been made it must stand. HEAVY RAINFALLS ATiCKENBURGSUN WICKENBURG, Aug. 2. One of the heaviest rains that has ever fallen in this section fell early Sunday morning. A steady downpour con tinued for several hours. The river came down with a roar.

The youth's trailing "39 EAST" OPENS AT STRAND TODAY There opens at the Strand this af ternoon Constance Binney in Rachel Crother's wonderful stage play, "39 East." in pictures. When this story opened on the "legitimate" in New York City it took the city by storm for it supplied angles that the New Yorker had not seen in stage or picture story.. There had been plays with wayward min isters' sons, many of them, but it re mained for Miss Crothers to supply a minister's daughter as a betighted girl in the front ranks of a Broadway chorus. This daughter of a country minister came to New York to seek employment and landed in the chorus She was sweet and awfully pretty. She had the freshness of the coun tryside in her beautiful face and she had not finished her first appearance before a manager invited her to a "little supper" after the show.

Although It is a Civil war play, it is not a war play. It is rather in the, war than of it. There is no discus sion ot the merits of the conflict. Neither side is more victorous than the other.- Both Northern and South ern officers are equally gentlemen. The villain is a renegade, "double crossing" both armies and equally despised by both. The war furnishes the settings. But it s primarily, lfka all really big pictures, a love story, one of those unstained stories of pure love mat makes lor better men and women. . , The leading roles of the picture have been entrusted to Catherine Cal vert, Crane Wilbur, William Colli ;r, Jr, Ben Lyon.
