WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30, 1921, P UN FEAST E1J0IL0T OF FUN TALKS (From Tuesday's Daily) Another 3-car had come and gone since the Prescott Volunteer Fire de partment had partaken of Thanks giving turkey together. And after the banquet Sunday afternoon, some of the achievements of that year were talked over through the thick tobacco smoke. A few glances were taken in a forward direction, par ticularly by Chief Bob Connell, who announced the arrival of . equipment for the new heavy fire truck, and A. A. Johns, who, as an ex-chief of the department, bespoke the considera tion of the council for the needs of the department. More and better equipment, he declared, was greatly needed. A good record was made during the past year, Chief Council said in his welcoming address. But one house had been totally lost and it was situated outside the city limits and above the range of effective work for water derived from the city reservoir. Former Chief Bert Tilton, whose long and faithful service is still fresh in the memory of all; was" presented with a handsome ring by the depart ment Mayor Morris Goldwater pre sented the circlet with appropriate remarks about its significance. Mr. Tilton responded with a graceful little talk in which he expressed the desire to pass that ring on to some successor of his after he has gone south to build instead of put out files. Mr. Johns denied the impli cation of his fellow ex-chief and said no man who spent his life putting out fires could possibly have any thing to do with fires in his after life Governor Campbell, an old-time member of the department, respond ed to an invitation from Joe Morgan of the Drognm committee, by send ing a letter to the boys. Mr. Gold water read the letter and said it was not every fire department that had a governor on its roster, and darn few governors who could boast of mem bership in as good a vfirc department. R. N. Fredericks, who lujruccj! 'jiis early seafaring experience to good account when he spliced the first rope on a hose cart for the Toughs 'way back in history, could not be present, but wrote a letter which was read by the chief. Mayor Goldwater sought to efface himself as toastmaster, but instead of approaching the ideal of a toast m?stcr as defined by one authority, merely succeeded in being his own kind of a presiding officer render ing assistance to the speakers and injecting into the meeting a quality of wit and flavor of humor that is characteristic. He had two happy introductory talks in particular one introducing Harry Heap, president of the Rotary club, and one for Dr. C. E. Yount, president of the chamber of commerce. Mr. Heap outlined the central idea of Rotary to the firemen. Dr. Yount expressed the appreciation of the county's chief civic organization for the splendid work of the fire department and top ped his remarks off with a number of excellent and timely stories. But the toastmastcr's introduction of Francis Viclc was far from satis factory to Mr. Viclc. And" he said so. He thought it was a hcluva in troduction. As he began speaking, a boy about so years old in the ex treme rear of the hall was moved to ask one of the listeners: "He's say ing bad words, isn't hp?"' Mr. Viclc spoke with ill-suppressed feeling respecting Maricopa county. That community, he said, was com posed of the most mulish people who lived in any similar community in the world. They had had the temer ity recently to send a delegation to Prescott to tell this county how. to spend its road money. And after that happened it was then necessary for Yavapai county to send another delegation down to Phoenix to tell Maricopa county to go and take a long running jump at itself and so forth. Statistics concealed in a report of the state tax commission explained to Mr. Vicle's satisfaction the reas ons for Maricopa's acting lhat-a-way. They had such a preponderance of mules and swine and bees down there. Yavapai, however, had thou sands on Maricopa in the matter of bulls and bullthrowiug. So, it was even. LcRoy Anderson was not called upon to make a speech, and he did not. His prime purpose in being on the program was to do a little Port ing for the circulation department of a magazine in which he is interested, and in which he succeeded in deeply interesting his hearers. His part of AND the program was like the salt in the porridge or the liqueur at the con clusion of the meal. i Music was furnished during the afternoon by 1. the Prescott mu nicipal band; 2. the Neapolitan or chestra, and 3. the Fearless Fire men's quartet composed of Messrs. Vync, Russell, Lamson and Ingra hain. Appreciation was expressed to the committee for its excellent work in getting up the annual feed. There were about 150 diners. DAI OF THANKS OBSERVED HERE The Usual Thanksgiving Day Celebrations Include Many Dinner Parties and Football and Racing, Typical of Season People of Frescott demonstrated their thankfulness in many ways yes terday. The holiday, spirit was most complete. No business was done save that of observing the festival characteristic o the Puritan times.

Isiah Smith, pumper, is a most peculiar typist in fact, he picks out his name as "Smitch." But when it comes to saving coal, the Illinois Central xailr road pronounces him one of the rec ord men of the system. The Illinois Central recently put on a fuel savingcampaign and word of it was passed to Isaiah, an old southern negro, at the pumping sta tion at Phillip's Bayou, Miss., hid in the woods midway between Lula, Miss., and Helena, Ark. The station over which Isaiah presides was then using coal at the rate of three whccl barrbw loads of coal a day. These are his reports of progress to his superior as duly chronicled in the Illinois Central Magazine: A. mr joe conklin, i bunt 3 Whcl bors of col on September the first isiah smitch pumper. B.

FESTIVITIES CLOSE THANKSGIVING BALL Holiday pleasure marked the ob servance of the Odd Fellows' annual Thanksgiving ball, held last night at the I. O. O. F. hall on South Cortez street from 9 o'clock until midnight. The traditional observance of the day around tables burdened with white meat and dark, quivering cranberry sauce and mince and pumpkin pies ended perfectly with dancing. Ex cellent music was furnished by the Neapolitan orchestra, which was re cently organized by five local young men. Manager Fred Boldtn last night reported that approximately 50 couples attended. L: PHOENIX, Nov. 24 The weather bureau report for the week says: With early morning temperatures ranging from 9 degrees at Pinto, Ariz., to near freezing in the south west portion on the morning of the 19th and with correspondingly low temperatures since, the week has been the coldest of ! season. At times it has been windy in the north east section but generally conditions have been favorable for stock. A light snow fell in the vicinity of Flagstaff on the 17th but the ground was too dry to receive any benefit therefrom. The continued dry weather is having its effect on springs and many of the smaller water tanks arc becoming lower; this, however, is to be expected at this season. On the major ranges pasture and stock arc generally good. Crop Progress in Arizona Killing frost, the first of the sea son in the southern part of the state, covered the entire section and reach ed south of the border into Mexico. All green vegetation was killed ex cept that growing near the base of foothills or otherwise protected. Nearly all cotton and maize- in the Salt River and Yuma valleys was killed but as the time for the first killing frost was at hand little com ment has been aroused. Olives may have suffered slightly in "the lower portions of the valley but in the prin cipal sections no damage resulted. Citrus fruit was not injured and the picking of both olives and citrus has made good progress. A large part of the top crop of cotton had ma tured and little loss- will ensue from the destruction of the plants; a con siderable part of the crop remains unpicked. Fall sown wheat and barley in irrigated sections look well and are affording excellent pasturage for dairy stock. High Stations. Temp. Douglas 66 Flagstaff : 64 Fort Apache 68 .

The relations of apples and fish under the law were discussed in su perior court last week. Wednesday Superior Judge Richard Lamson took up the rest of the culinary mat ters when he heard the complaint of the Aluminum Cooking Utensil com pany for an injunction against the city of Prescott. The- decision will be forthcoming after the court has studied the evidence in its relation to a large number of authorities. In brief, the complaint is that the city wants to collect a peddler's license from agents of the company for conducting their business here. The case is brought under the inter state commerce act, which sets up distinctions .between so-called ped dlers and ordinary drummers. Which division 'covers the case in question remains to be decided. 'David L. Bischopp of Wickcnburg, represent ing the plaintiff, held yesterday that the company was doing its business in such a manner as to obviate the payment of local license fees. The city through ts attorney, Alfred H. Gale, contended that while traveling salesmen were without the purview of the license act, this case involved something more. It was for the court to decide which. CATTLE SHIPMENTS Movement of cattle from Yavapai to California and other markets con tinues lively.

(Associated Press) EL PASO. Nov. 24. Livestock- ranges in the southwest rapidly arc becoming depleted as a result of the recent heavy exportation of cattle in- to Mexico, according to Robert L. FREED IN CASE 1 Castleberry, county hide and animal inspector. Cattle shipments through this port arc now running about 120 cars a month, he said. This would repre sent about 3,600 head. The inspector pointed out that the impression should not be gained that the cattle business is at a standstill in Mexico because of the large draw ings for'b'eef from this country. "Some of the stock being imported by Mexican ranchers is being sent to the ranges and it may not be long before conditions there are normal. As a cattle breeding country, Mexico cannot be beaten." SUBJECT OF STATE OFFICIAL LETTER (Journal-Miner Camtal Bureau) PHOENIX, Nov. 26. Governor Campbell today issued his Christmas seal proclamation, which reads as follows: "The 'more, blessed to give than receive' spirit finds its highest ex pression in the Yuletide season, when the mind and heart, divorced from self, open wide their portals for the reception of the weary, sick and heavy-laden of humanity, and give more thought to the welfare of so ciety in general and the individual cases of afflicted in our midst. "The menace of the great white plague and its threatening growth finally aroused big-hearted men and women to organized effort to com bat the rapid spread of this dread disease. During the past 14 years the tuberculosis death rate in the United States has been reduced from 193.6 per 100,000 population to 120.6, yet it contrives to exact more lives as its toll each year than any other communicable or preventable dis ease. The necessity, therefore, for continuing the campaign against tu berculosis until its final eradication has been accomplished, admits of no hesitation or arguments. "Arizona, blessed with a salubrious and healing climate, particularly for tubcrculars, has a problem nfuch greater than facing other states, be cause of the tremendous number of migratory tubercular cases which come here' without adequate or any financcst' 'More freer clinffcs" for ' the examination of patients for the' early discovery of tuberculosis which is known to be curable, more free heds for care of those in the advanced stages of the malady, visiting nurses who can take care of sick in the homes and educate families in mat ters pertainihg to health and hygiene, open air schools for backward chil dren because of sub-normal health and preventoriums for the care of children who show early tuberculosis and who can be saved from develop ing into active cases in later life are some of the crying needs In connec tion with the great philanthropic work now being carried on in our commonwealth. This noble work of life conservation depends in a large measure upon the sale of Christmas Seais, the funds thus secured from voluntary contributors being used to supplement those provided by the state through the department of pub lic health. "Now, therefore, I, Thomas E. Campbell, governor of the state of Arizona, by virtue of the authority vested in me by law, urgently re quest the people of the state to mani fest their wonted generosity during the fourteenth annual Christmas seal sale of the National Tuberculosis as sociation and its allied state associa tions and county societies during the period of December 1, to December IS, 1921, bearing in mind that all aid extended to this most worthy cause is money well expended in the pro motion of the health and happiness of not only ourselves but the unfor tunate stranger within our gates."
