thing, decided to make their way to
Pomona, Calif., for Christmas, by
"hopping" freights. The other boy,

working at Seligman to earn his
fare to the; coast-
The boys left Boulder college about
a week, ago, according to the story

car standing on the tracks in the
yard, A switch engine "bumped"
the car, which rolled over McGinnis,
killing him.
The boy's father, notified of his
son's death, will arrive here today,
where the body has been brought.

OF KINKS 10 II
(Fiom Saturday's Daily)
The hectic if not often exciting
race between those two large and
hefty tomes in the office of Clerk J.
C. Woods of the superior court,
"Register of Actions, Book 16," and
"Register of Marriage Licenses,
Book 9," yesterday took on a sudden
spurt
Register of Actions had been hav
ing the race his way for the past
few days, with divorce cases giving
him new leaps ahead, while Register
of Marriage Licenses fell behind in
his supply of one of the causes of
divorce. But yesterday, as noted,
things took a change.
-Deputy Clerk Emma Shull found
occasion to enter in Book 9 the is
suance of three marriage licenses, to
Philip Courtland Dunford, Jr., of
New London, Conn., and Marjorie
Carll Vrooman. of St. Louis, Mo.;
Xatividad Lopez and Alesia Felix, qf
Yavapai county; and Charles John
son and Edith Wilkinson, of Yava
pai. Absence of entries in Book 16
gave the race to 9.

RESTTUT1
SURGERY AIDS
PEARL LUND'S
LOST MEMORY
--.
(From Saturday's Dally) '
Fallowing a serious operation upon
her brain, which surgeons at the Los
Angeles county hospital say is com
pletely successful, attractive 22-year-old
Pearl Tabor Lund, of Prescott,
Thursday was able to make an effort
to identify the assailant who was re
sponsible for her presence in the hos
pital, according to the Los Angeles
Express.
Charles Lopez is accused by the
authorities of being the man whom
Miss Lund says attacked her after
an evening with friends, and who
threw her out of his car near Echo
park. She was found at dawn, her
jaw broken in two places and her
skull fractured.
It was for a long time doubtful
whether the young woman would
survive her injuries. She has suf
ficiently recovered, however, to give
testimony at the preliminary hear
ing which was held at her bedside.
Lopez is charged with assault with
intent to commit murder. He was
arrested a few days after Miss Lund
was discovered unconscious, and has
since been held pending .the outcome
of her injuries. Had the woman
died .the authorities were prepared to
issue1 a complaint charging murder.
Miss' Lund has so far been unable
to identify her attacker. As a re
sult of her experiences she has since
been in a state of aphasia, Lopez
was arrested because he is said to
be the; man who offered-, to .take Miss
Lund home on the evening of the at
tack but who is instead alleged to
have taken her to the neighborhood
of the park.
Attorney John J. Richardson, con
ducting the defense, is prepared to
launch a strenuous attack upon the
question of identity. Lopez utterly
denies the crime. The case 'for the
state is in the hands of Deputy Dis
trict Attorney Buron R. Fitts, who
expressed a desire to have the ques
tion of identity disposed of by Miss
Lund herself at the hearing.
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY
nTrnm Siinilav'o Dnllv
On the nicht of Friday 23, all eyes
were turned to the Christmas dance
at Kirkland, which was given by tne
Parent-Teachers association.
In spite of the rough roads, many
people from Prescott motored to th
all-nicht dance.
At midnight, a delightful chicken
sandwich suoocr was served. The big
idea was, for every one to cat enough
to make 'cm sick. However, no
casualties have been reported. All
of the cakes and sandwiches that
were so cruelly mistreated, were made
by the association.
Mrs. Forbes, of the Hayes Cattli
comoanv. made a 10-nound fruit
cake, which was coated with rich
white frosting and small Christmas
candies. Dunnir the supper hour
the cake was rafffled off at two-bits
a chance. This netted $50. Wayne
Thornburg held the lucky number,
but his generous heart forbade his
takintr it. so he had it auctioned
Chas. Evans of Kirkland bid $7 and
walked off with the cake. It must
have been a wonderful cake to bring
in $57, but then, we suppose that
Mrs. Forbes is a wonderful cook.
The nroceeds from the cake and
dance will be used in purchasing a
phonograph for the school.
The all-night revelers' orchestra,
composed of Harvey Carter, E. I.
Barnett. Paul Plummcr, Koy Mc
Donald, and Georcc Beatty, furnished
the supernatural harmonious discord
that truided the dancers' ieet, m their
hilarious pursuit of happiness.
The Kirkland Parent-teachers' as
sociation has accomplished a great
deal of good for their school. Among
the imorovements which have been
added to the school by the associa
tion arc: Jsew basketball, croquet
and tennis court, as well as other
playground equipment, such as
swings and slide. Kirkland ooasts
that it has the only active associa
tion north of Clifton.
