THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, PHOENIX, SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 12, 1921.
PAGE THREE 1 ARMISTICE DDI PROGRAM GIN AT ROTARY CLUB Ex-Service Men Have Charge of Meeting Topics Relating To Day Discussed Pay Honor To Dead Armistice day was fittingly ob served yesterday by the Rotary club in the program of the meeting at the T. M.. C A., at noon. Gathering 15 minutes earlier than usual, the Rota rians were seated at the luncheon tables at 12 o'clock, the hour set for the national tribute to the dead heroes of the World war. Rising, the Rotarians bowed their heads for two minutes In silent prayer for those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the great struggle to end military domi nation. Following the singing of'The Star Epangied Banner," to the' accom paniment of the City band, the roll of members of the Rotary club who en tered the service of their country during the World war was called. It Is as follows: Rotary's Honor Roll Edgar P. Ginstead, E. Power Counway, C. D. Jones, A. C. Taylor, II. I Peek, . W. R. Bertram, E. C. Bertram, . M. P. Fickaa, A. B. Stoner, - Robert Boardman, Bryan Akers, Lamar McKinley, ' Roy E. Thomas, E. I Reinhold, Lynn Lockhar i E. Dingman, Arthur G. Halm. E. P. Grinstead, Robert Boardman and E. L. Reinhold have moved away from the city. As their names were called C. D. Jones, A. C. Taylor, Howard Peek, W. R. Bertram, M. P. Fickas, A. B. Stoner and Bryan Akers answered Present." Pays Tribute to Dead Member When the name of Arthur G. Halm was called, Dean Scarlett of Trinity cathedral arose and delivered a most eloquent tribute to the memory of the Rntarian who paid the supreme sac rifice in the World war. Arthur G. Halm put service above self, said Dean Scarlett, thus exemplifying the best ideals of American citizenship. He did not falter when the test came. Declaring that "service above self is the very meaning of our national ex lstnce, the. speaker urged that the memory of Arthur G. Halm, who gave his life in unselfish devotion for his country, should be an incentive to 11 to put : 'service above self." The program was in charge of the ex-service men of the Rotary club, A. B. Stoner being chairman. The meaning of Armistice day three years ago and what It means today waw the subject of a brief talk by A. C. Taylor. "Three years ago Armistice day ment rest," said Captain Taylor. "It meant a pause and eventually the end of the most cruel war human in genuity and an advanced civilization could invent Today the world paus? es to render tribute at the grave of those who paid the supreme sacrifice that the world might know the end of military domination. "But while we pay the fullest measure of honor to these dead he roes, we must turn the major portion of our endeavors today to the living, not only to the cripples, but to edu cate the coming generation that such a cruel war may never again be known, the beginning of another year's effort to make the world a better place in which to live." Aid for Disabled Men Claude E. Jones spoke for 10 min utes cn the subject of the disabled veterans of the World war. He said in part: "The situation today turns always to economics; it bears us on today as never before. Facts are more elo quent than words. While we were spending 133,000,000,000 as the cost of the war, what were these service men spending? Many lie in graves today and many are wrecked in health and body. We cannot measure the cost of war in dollars and cents. Of the 400,000 disabled ex-service men, 140,000 are receiving monthly install ment from the government. There are 633,000 carrying government in surance. Each month there are 1,200 claims bing considered. "There are 29,000 disabled ex-service men in hospitals, the cost last year for hospitalization work being J 52,000,000. The government board considering the merit of these cases is most liberal. Even though in many cases the man did not receive his disability in the line of service yet they consider that to educate him and prepare him to take his place as a useful member of society is a bene fit to the country at large. "One hundred thousand are taking vocational education. Six thousand have been rehabilitated, increasing their earning capacity of $1,100 per year before the war to $1,400 at the present time. It is a fine thing for the government as well as for the men. They are not making loafers, but men of gainful employment, "he United States is caring for the dis abled ex-service men in a splendid manner." Nation's Military Power The present military power and policy of the United States was the subject of a brief talk by Howard L. Peek. He outlined the act of con gress providing for the military force of the country, the regular army, na tional guard and organized reserve. The whole system, he declared, is based on voluntary service. Mr. Peek gave as his opinion that a mili tary system that puts the whole bur den of preparation for war on a few is not right. Until the nations of the world absorb the principles of Rotary, declared Mr. Peek, it is rea sonable to suppose that wars will continue. He gave it as a wise pre cept: "In time of peace prepare for war." He also stated as a most equitable solution, compulsory mili tary education between certain ages. The speaker closed by declaring that Rotary has a large mission In the world. The conference in Washington on limitation of armament was the subject Qf a brief talk by Mel Fickas. He review the various problems of the five big nations whose represent atives are at the conference and showed with what case, any headway toward an agreement of any kind could be blocked. However, he de clared that if the representatives ap proach the conference in a business like manner they could come to an agreement to halt for a time in the mad race of warship building. His address was an interesting one and was closely followed by the Rotarians. Bishop J. W. Atwood spoke of the Red Cross membership drive which started yesterday, he being chairman of the finance committee of the Cen- Uroes HelD for Red Cross The Red Cross membership in creased to many millions during the war. Bishop Atwood declared, but he stated that there seemed to be a feeling that with the close of the war there was nothing more for the Red Cross to do. He then told of the great work of the Red Cross in time of peace, how at every great disaster it was ready and on the spot to furnish tents for the homeless, food for the hungry, clothing, medi cal attendance and everything neces sary for a stricken people. In caring for the x-service men and their families the Red Cross spent $10,000. 000 last year, he said. Work is going on along all these lines, the speaker declared, and for this reason there is a great need for members and money to sustain this great organization. The Red Cross work is found, not only in this country but all over the world. Last year the Red Cross fed b. million babies in Europe. Speaking of the local chapter of the Red Cross, Bishop Atwood de clared that it spent thousands of dollars last year in caring for the ex service men and their families and dependents. The Red Cross also con tributes each month to the Associat ed Charities. If a person wishes to be a loyal citizen, declared Bishop Atwood, he or she should wear the little button of the Red Cross the coming week and thus aid the whole world of suffering humanity. It was announced by President Boynton that the next meeting of the Rotary club will be next Friday eve ning at 6 o'clock at Ingleside. Every one who has ideas for the benefit of the local Rotary club will be given an opportunity to express them. . o EBB1 MEM PIO! DRY 1ST DECIDE SUIT Title to ten acres of land near Mesa depends, according to testi mony offered Thursday in Judge Ly--man's court at the hearing of the suit of Lucictia J. Crisman et al against Frank Crisman to quiet title to the land, upon the memory ot several pioneers of the Salt River valley concerning certain alleged transactions which took place more than 20 years ago. The plaintiffs in the case claim they hold the only recorded deed to the land and de clare they have always held the title. On the other hand the defendant in the case alleges the Mesa Canal company has given a deed to the acreage more than 20 years ago and the defendant is now entitled to pos session. According to defense testi mony the deed was destroyed by fire which burned the ' canal company's office and for that reason was never recorded. Salt River valley pioneers testified tha the ten acres in ques tion lay near a head gate, but could not be irrigated because the level of the water in the canal was too low. Rather than go to the expense of rais ing the head gate, stockholders of the old Mesa Canal company said, the company purchased the land from the plaintiffs and was given a deed. The case wtB continued until Saturday morning. o SURE CURE (Richmond Times-Dispatch) "My wife has just that one bad habit, she imagines things so; con stantly indulging in exaggerated speech.

CITRUS EXHIBIT IT EXPOSmOHSHOW SIZE OF INDUSTRY Among exhibitions at the Indus trial Exposition which have given a definite idea of the resources and potential wealth of the Salt River valley and have as their object the furthering of productive industries in this part of the state is that of the Arizona Citrus Growers company, which is showing not -only the oranges, lemons and grapefruit raised here but is endeavoring to distribute timely and accurate information con cerning the citrus industry among those who are interested. The display at the industrial tent includes oranges, lemons and grape fruit and the brands under which the products are marketed by the company, which is an association of citrus growers. The chief of these brands are the "Poppy" and the "Sunflower," which are becoming better known steadily in the citrus markets of the United States through the activities of the association. In discussing the display yester day one of the citrus experts In charge of it gave the following in timation concerning the industry and its possibilities: There are about 1,500 acres in the Salt River valley planted to citrus fruits out of a total of about 15,000 acres fitted for citrus production, and the acreage under cultivation is producing more than 125 cars of fruit for shipment outside the state in addition to about SO cars used in Phoenix and the state. The packing of the crop Is done by the Arizona Citrus Growers com pany, an organization of growers, while the distributing of the pro duct is done by the Mutual Orange Distributors, who sell the fruit under the "Poppy'.' and "Sunflower" brands. The fruit is considered the equal and perhaps the superior of the product of any other citrus belt in the United States, and commands top prices each year. Included in this category are the Marsh seedless grapefruit and Washington navel oranges, prin cipally because of their high sugar content and general perfection. v To a large extent the long hot summers of this valley are respon sible for the sweetness of the fruit, while another contributing factor of importance is that Arizona orchards are generally free from citrus pests, which in other. sections of the United States cost the growers as high as $100 an acre a year. The result of the foregoing conditions is that with adequate water supplies and a sat isfactory marketing system the Salt River valley should become one of the best and most profitable citrus centers in the world. Already it is probable that 1,000 additional acres will be devoted to the industry in LAST FREE LECTURE OF SERIES TODAY Horticulture in all its practical phases will be discussed by university experts at a free lecture program to be given this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the school administration building, 331 North First avenue.
