Increasing competition In the busi ness world is sending men and wo men from all ranks ot life back to .-hooL Phoenix has very convincing proof of this in Its night school, which is held three times a week at Phoenix Union High school. The enrollment this year is 404 as com pared to IS7 last year, and there are many on the waiting list for some classes. To meet the greatly Increased en rol iraont the hours have been ar ranged to hold three classes In each ubj-t Instead of two as formerly. The first period begins at 7 o'clock and fives way to another period at 7:49 o'clock. The last period is from S:ia o'clock until 9 o'clock. Other changes In the night school curriculum includes the addition of rlasses in chemistry, dressmaking and millinery, printing and a build Ins trades course. Most of the students at night school are people who have gained a foot l.old in business life but find that to advance they need the extra prepar ation which the three-night-a-week classes offer. All Classes Represented TYominent professional men, am ttitious clerks, society girls, farmers J crowd into the same class room and show an equal Interest in the studies being pursued. KeaJ democracy prevails In the cor ridors of the various buildings de xoted to night studies -just prior to the opening of the classes when the studvnts begin to gather. -I lost my text books Tuesday ana 1 didn't get them back until yesterday," ; Clarice, the banker's daughter, con ' fides to Nellie, the milliner's appren tice. -Meet me after the class and I'll take vou home, I live out your way," the doctor invites the grocery clerk.

There is now room for a few students in the telegraphy class, in the chemistry class and in the dress making and millinery class. The op portunity is also open for entrance intn the nenmanshin class or the class of business English. That the worK given in nignt school is attractive as well as effec tive is being proved by the large number of students carried over from last year. Some courses require more than one year to complete. Typing Class Popular One shorthand and typewriting class of 20 is composed almost en tirely of students who started the work last year. In the advanced typ ing class are to be found stenograph ers who can average 100 words a minute. Tet they keep on prac ticing. T-lrH Small, the elrl who won the second year high school cham pionship ot the state in a typing con test last year, is numbered among the students at the mgnt scnoui up ing class.

Many In Machine Classes With sleeves rolled up and sweat rolling down a dozen muscular young fellows were found vigorously beating white hot iron into shapes to serve their purpose in the forge room of the nduslrial arts building. And work ing iust as vigorously were about 30 more students in the machine room. Mr. Gregg, instructor in this de partment, explained that some or these students came to the nignt classes after doing a hard days work In a machine Bhop or garage ana others traveled several miles to get to the classes. He pointed out one student with the remark that after completing his work in the class the student would return to work in a garage until midnight. The instruc tor indicated another man who teach es manual training in rural schools. He takes the night school work be tween long trips into the country. Another roan who regularly attends the class comes 13 miles over bad roads. School Equipment Excellent Because of a fortunate purchase from the government of $28,000 worth of machines for $2,700 Phoenix Union high school has one of the best equipped machine rooms in the na tion. Mr. Gregg expressed the opin ion that nothing west of the Missis sippi river surpassed the facilities of fered here. At the beginning of the night school term a limit of 28 stu dents was set for the machine Bhop class but the demand was so insist ent that the enrollment is now 41 and Mr. Gregg states that the limit has been reached. In the same building, but shut off from the noise of the forges and ma chines, Mr. Turner conducts a night class in mechanical drawing. Mechanical drawing Is a very dry and uninteresting subject unless it is studied with a definite obective in mind," Mr. Turner explained, and judging from the intense interest all the members of the class were evinc ing In their work last night they are all progressing toward a well defined goal. A new high school semester begins the first of the year when some stu dents will finish courses and others will take their places. Those in charge of the work are of the opin ion that with the opening of new classes at that time there will be another very appreciable increase in the enrollment.

Fawcett of Miami, general con tractors, inspected the Cave Creek dam site Tuesday in company w'th James B. Girand, engineer. They will be among bidders for the con tract. Forty sets of plans have been sent out to contractors in this and ad joining states. Engineer Girand de clared. Many of them have written that they will visit the dam site before submitting proposals. Bids for the work will be opened Saturday. December 17. The con tract or contracts for the dam con struction, it is expected, will be awarded at that time unless all bids are above the estimated cost of con struction. The agencies responsible for the movement have approximate ly $350,000 available for . the work. which will be sufficient to complete an earth flood control dam, it is be lieved. Contractors will be free to bid on all or part of the work. Some idea of the magnitude of the undertaking can be had from the following: The dam is to be as high as the Adams hotel building and as long. across the wash, from the hotel to the Arizona Eastern depot. At Its base, It will be 900 feet wide, or as wide as from Central to Third ave- FLO C I LD Give recent At YOUR Price! ave N ew Chandler or UST T O CLOSE THESE nues. Contractors and engineers j estimate that it will be necessary to move 400,000 cubic yards of earth. Concrete work forms another im portant factor in the proposed con struction work. Truckage from Phoenix to the dam site "and movement of equip ment are other items that are caus ing contractors much concern. While roads are generally fair from Phoenix to the site, it was the opinion of Con tractors Williams and Fawcett yes terday that the road would have to be rebuilt in many places to permit the movement of materials and equipment. Still another factor to be taken into consideration is the water supply. It will be necessary to construct a pipe line a distance of nine miles to se cure the needed supply, it is believed. Such a pipe line can be laid on the surface and will be a gravity system, it was announced. It is hoped that actual work on the dam will be started soon after the first of the year. Its completion within the year is anticipated. it ?! One of the finest pictures ever ex hibited in this city has been placed on display in the windows of the Ford Levy store on West Adams street. It Is the painting "Old Darby." by Rosa Bonheur, a French artist celebrated for her portravals of horses. Next to "THE HORSE FAIR," "Old Darby" Is considered Mme. Bonheur's IE Fourth IK mm OLD DARBY HERE a HR CM best work. It has a considerable sentimental interest, as the horse pic ture was a rersonal favorite of the artist "Old Daiby" was spending his old age as a fisherman's beast when Rosa Bonheur took compassion on him. purchased him. and installed him as a pet on her Fontalnebleau estate, where she painted him. The picture was not sold until after her death. "Old Darby" is notable for Its rea listic picturing of the venerable white horse thrusting his head from a barn door a well as for the love of animals the painter put into every stroke of the brush. The canvass is seven by nine feet and has a commercial value running far into the thousands. T P. II. S. As a part of Its program for Edu cation Week, the hicb school will ob serve Parents' day on Thursday, ac cording to the announcement made Tuesday by Miss Ethel Rosenberry, dean of Vomen.
