Against Notorious Bandit
On Mail Robbery Charge
' In a court room crowded with in-:
terested spectators, many of whom
were women, Roy G. Gardner, no
torious mail bandit, whose spectacu
lar encounters with the law during
the past two years cam to an abrupt
end here on the evening of Novem
ber 15 when he attempted to rob a
mail car at the Santa Fe station,
was brought to trial yesterday morn
ing. Contrary .to general expectation,
the first case brought against him
by Thomas A. Flynn, United States
district attorney, was not the Santa
Fe robbery which proved his Water
loo, but the case of the robbery of a
Southern Pacific mail car at Mari
copa on the morning of November S.
The Maricopa case against Gard
ner has been called the strongest cir
cumstantial evidence case ever built
up by federal officers in this part
of the southwest, but the overwhelm
ing mass of evidence which has. been
gathered by the authorities was
matched by the skill an finesse with
which Gardner is said to have ac
complished the robbery, and it was
whispered yesterday in the corridors
of the federal building that Attorney
Flynn's strategy in tryirg the Mari
copa case first lay In the fact that
a revealment of the shrewdness
shown by the defendant In this rob
bery would be an effective answer
to any allegations of insanity which
may be brought to Gardner's assist
ance. Iiong before 9:30 o'clock, the open
ing hour of the trial, the corridors of
the third floor of the federal building
were filled with the curious, and from
the moment when the court room
was thrown open until noon it was
crowded to the doors. This was also
the case in the afternoon, many of
the spectators having stood during
the entire time of the trial. At noon
and in ,the evening they congregated
after the court room proceedings on
the sidewalk in front of the federal
building, so that they could see Gard
ner as he was led to an automobile
waiting to take him to the county

. Identify Stolen Watch
This first testimony concerned a
woman's wrist watch which Gardner
is said to have given as security for
board and room, and which is al
leged by the government to have
been stolen rom one of the mail
pouches taken from the Southern
Pacific mail car at Maricona. Mrs.
Janney's testimony was to the effect
that she sent the watch in a regis
tered package from Salt Lake City
on October 31, 1921. to Mrs. B. E.
Phillips of Hayden.
Flynn, without commenting ipon
this testimony, then read another
statement from J. M. Caffall, a reg

that he had received a registered
package from Mrs. Janney on the
The first nersonal witness for the
government then took the stand when

visited in Hayden in September and
October and that she had taken the
watch to Salt Lake City after it naa

Friendly House' W. Sherman
Street In Phoenix, the First
Settlement House In Phoenix
"Friendly House" is the appropriate
name for the settlement house at 9
West Sherman street, the first settle
ment house in this city and in the
state. WThile little is generally known
concerning this institution, yet it is
filling an important place in Phoenix
in instilling the principles of Ameri
can citizenship into the minds of the
Mexican and other alien population.
The new settlement house is the re
sult of the earnest work of the local
Americanization committee. The
work was started in April. 1920, In a
school room at Madison and First
streets loaned for the purpose by the
Methodist mission and financed- by
the Council of Jewish Women.
The work was slow to start and
was made more difficult by the nat
ural shyness of the people it was de
sired to reach and attract, but the
faithful efforts of the members of
the Americanization committee bore
fruit and gradually by degrees this
shyness wore away and the attend ance
grew as did the interest.
As the attendance grew, there was
need for larger quarters. - Through
the kindness of John D. Loper, super
intendent of the city schools, the com
mittee was given the use of the Lin
coln school. Bit by bit the preudice
was overcome and to the classes were
added social evenings and celebra
tions of the national holidays. These-
were enthusiastically received.
During one year more than 200 were
registered for the different classes
and the work took on a larger aspect
and the appearance of 'a real social
settlement. Many hours or faithful
work were put in by the membefs of
the committee, but the evident assur
ance that their work was bearing
fruit In the increased attendance and
growing interest was their ample re
ward. New Home Secured
The great necessity of a home all
their own was now the apparent fact
If the work was to continue to grow
at its present rate. Tye city then
came to their aid and a roomy brick
house at West Sherman street, with
wide hospitable porches, came on the
market at ust the right time. This
was turned over to the committee.
But it needed remodeling and re
pairing. However, friends furnished
the materials and the members of the
classes volunteered the labor. The
result was all that could be desired.

Breaks Up "Gang"
In addition to this regular work.
"Friandly House" has succeeded in
interesting a "gang" of boys who. to
iDut It mildly, had kept things stirred
pjp on the south side. But with pa
tience and diplomacy and with the
slow but sure effort these boys have
been drawn away from their vicious
surroundings, have been given proper
environment and new interests and
are now on the right road to the
making of good men and worthy citi
zens. What "Friendly House" and these
patriotic workers have done for that
part cf the town and for the whole
city is shon in a recent report of
Chief of Police Brisbois who declares
that the decrease in the number of
arrests and the improvement among
these young fellows In the past year
has been "wonderful."
To "Friendly' House" and these
people who have made it a reality,
the citiztns o Phoenix owe a large
debt. The work done at this settle
ment house will bear fruit through
many years. Among the institutions
of this city- it has a place all its own
For 1923 May Be '
Automobile license plates, made
of Arizona copper and manufac
tured in Arizona, will be used by
Arizona motorists in 1923 if the
suggestioi made by Col. John C.
Greenway is carried out.
The idea was brought to the
attention rt the secretary of state
after the contract for the Arizona
license plates for 1922 was let and
the plates manufactured; other
. wise it is likely that after the
first of the year every car operat
ing in Arizona would have carried
the copper plate with the white,
enameled lettering which is said to
make by far the i best looking
license platr that has ever been
proposed for this state. A sam
ple was received yesterday by
Jack McK Redmond, assistant-,
assistant secretary of state, from
Colonel Greenway. It was made
at Ajo according to the specifi
cations furnished by Mr. Red
mond at the request of the col
onel. By early spring the 1923 plates
will be ordered and Mr. Redmond
promised yesterday that he would
not only use his every effort in
having the strictly Arizona article
adopteo here, but in other states
which will receive samples from
Colonel Greenway. ,
Mr. Redmond is confident that
the plates can be produced at ap
proximately the same cost to the
state as those used at the pres- '
ent time which cost 20 cents a
pair. There is a pound of cop
per in the plate which has a val
ue of 13 cents and it ia believed
' that the cost of manufacture, al
lowing a small profit, will not be
more than 7 cents.

3N IS SHIPPED
FIRST LETTUCE OF
B! GLEHDALE- -MEN "
The first lettuce "f the season was
shipped from the valley on Sunday
when a car of crated lettuce was
shipped from Glendale to the east
over the Santa Fe railroad. A second
car was shipped yesterday morning-,
and shipments will continue steadily
now at the rate of from one to five
cars a day during the season which
will close About March 1. The let
tuce was from the E. E. Jack ranch
near Glenda1 and is being shipped
through the United Fruit Growers'
A large number of ranchers are
growing lettuce in the Vicinity of
Glendale and the acreage is report
ed to be greatly in excess of that of
last year. The quality of the let
tuce, according to the growers, is ..
much superior to the lettuce grown
last year and the year before. Ac
cording to the growers, they will get
approximately a. car of lettuce from -each
acre planted. ...
The lettuce growers expect to re-.;
ceive a higher price in the eastern
market for their lettuce this year
than last on account of the report
ed shortage of the lettuce crops in
the Imperial valley where the con- .
tlnued intense heat during the grow-,
ing season caused the heads to spread
instead of forming solid. But a small
acreage of lettuce was lost in the Salt '
river valley growers state, on ac-'
count of heat, and most of the loss
occurred within the past three weeks. -High
fre'ght rates, the growers eaid"
will tend to cut down the net prof

Frank W. Aitken as executor of the

corporation. Aitken alleges John R.
Aitken at the time of his death, July
15, 1916, owned 10.030 shares of stock
in the oil company.
In November, 1910, Aitken says,
the assets of the Florence Oil com
pany were transferred to the Flor
ence Petroleum company, and there
are now no assets in the company.
No authentic copies of the stock cer
tificate books of the company are in
existence, he says, because they were
destroyed in the San Francisco fire,
and he asks that the courts declare
the ownership of the stock to be in
accordance with the list given in his
suit, which totals 52.721. shares. He
also asks the franchise of the com
pany be annulled. '

This ultimatum has been given out
because of the large number of prop

In many of these cases, according
to City Engineer L. B. Hitchcock,
