WEEKLY JOURNAL-MINER PAGE FIVE LIST DinS FILE CLAIMS F0RTR1II fFTom Wednesday's Dally) Ex-service men who have not made application for vocational training and who wish to do so before the expiration of the period allowed for filing claims for such training, are invited to call at the office of the veterans' bureau at the chamber of commerce between now and Decem ber 16, preferably now, Martin Schriver, contact officer in charge of the office, announced yesterday. "If the men will call here we shall be glad to assist them in preparation of claims, if they have not already filed them or are in any doubt about the matter," Shrivcr said. The status of vocational training at present is as follows: Under the "deficiency bill" ap proved June 16, 1921, applications for training were limited to 18 months following th,e passage of the act, thus making December 16 the time limit. A man claiming training is required to begin the same within one year after he has been notified that he is eligible. The time limit for filing applica tions for vocational training should not be confused with applications for compensation, although the two ap plications are now filed on the same form, it was pointed out. The time limit for filing applications for com pensation remains the same; that is, within five years from date of dis charge; or, if disability occurs after discharge, within five years from the beginning of such disability. It should be borne in mind that compensation is payable only for a disability which occurred or was ag gravated in service; or, if it develops following discharge from service, within one year from date of such discharge, with the exception of active pulmonary tuberculosis or neuro-psychiatric disability more than 10 per cent in extent, the time limit for which has been extended to two years. In order that no disabled man may miss the .present opportunity of se curing the training offered by the government, it is requested that those who know the facts of the situation tell them to other disabled ex-service men in the community who may not know them, it being made plain that all applications for vocational training must be on record at the veterans' bureau (local office) before Decem ber 16, 1922.

SCOUT TROOPS ARE FORMED; HUMBOLDT MAYER JOIM MOV A troop of Boy Scouts was organ ized at Humboldt Monday under the direction of Andy Grocnink; scout executive for the YavapaUMohavc council. Seventeen boys enrolled' as members, of the new troop, and several more arc expected; to join at the next meeting. Those already en rolled are Jack, Clem and Homer Ed wards, Tom Trewcek, Jolin Tonack, Joe Lari, Bcrwin Aubuchon, Gordan Hammond, Wesley Jackson, Maximo Salsido, Teddy Morgan, Fred Terry, Cannon Martiuus, Marcus Gatian, Pete Starnick, Pete Chamas and Ruddy Chamas. The trcop committee, consisting of G. M. Col vocof esses, chairman; A. Marshall, C. P. Wingficld, J. C. Mc Nabb, J. F. Seymour, Walter Joy, Sr., J. M. Cook and Dr. R. T. Frank lins intend to make the new troop one of the best in the council. Hum boldt boys have long been eager to form a troop and get into the game with enthusiasm. After organizing at Humboldt, Grocnink went to Mayer, where j a reminder of a good story about the (From Wecnesday- Dally! Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Mitchell Sat urday evening went for a spin to the quail haunt at Congress Juntcoin. They planned to spend the night there and on Sunday make a raid on the birds that literally infest the plains, the rocks and cactus thickets of a section of country measuring about'80 by 100 miles, with the most densely populated quail area being in the immediate vicinity of the Junction. That was really all that was on the program; but Mr. Mitchell is a man who docs not go exactly to a set program on a hunting trip. He was accompanied from Prescott by Eli S. ' Perkins, and on Sunda' morn ing the hunting party left for the plains west of Congress Junction to search in the quail district, and when out about four miles a fine coyote loped into view on the sky-line, about 300 yards away. The party was well armed with just plain shotguns with birdshot, but everyone immediately had a de sire for the hide of that wild and wily canine. Many times he had seen automobiles come upon the plains, and as many times had seen them go on their way following the beaten trails. He loped on leisurely for a few paces, but the hunting party was not allowing any coyote to flaunt an insult at three perfectly good hunts men. "Step on the gas and we'll get him," someone said. Mitchell step ped, the roadster stepped, and the coyote left the road and started off across the plains, looking back over his shoulder to make sure what was going on. The car left the road and started at 35 miles an hour after the now frightened coyote. The race was to see who could first reach the black hill to the cast. The coyote knew that safety lay in those deep ravines, and thitherward he sped. The hunt ers knew that heavy brush meant a lost race. The plains at that point are open for a space of about three miles, and the race was on for that distance. The coyote set new speeds for other covotes to equal. Mitchell never once took his foot off the gas, the brakes were forgotten and speed was sought. Perkins held his quail gun in readiness to fire when within range. The first shot made the coyote go faster. The second shot took effect, and turned the fleeing boss of the plains over; but he didn't stop going. When he landed right side up, his speed in creased. The next shot missed and the speed again increased. But so did that of the car. That driver was not going to lose that race, if tires and steel would hold; and they did. The next shot brought the coyote down with a broken hind leg; and as the loser of the exciting chase sought shelter under the shady side of a small mesquitc bush, John Perkins, who had been keeping the muskets loaded, took a passing shot and landed the coyote a last blow which laid him down for the full count. "Turn 'cm out wild" is the slogan at the Prescott Frontier days celebra tion and they do tdrn 'cm out wild. But ' Mitchell's slogan is to "Bring 'cm in wild." The hide of that poacher on barnyard coops and the less powerful denizens of the plains was soon peeled from its carcass and duly stretched in the most approved trapper style. When cured, it will be sent to the furriers for mounting as a center rug for the Mitchell den. In days to come, when it is time for the fireside tales Mitchell will have (Krom Vanr-tofs Dally, The Verde Inspiration Mining company will have a power house and mill installed, and in full opera tion by the first of February, accord ing to Charles E. Steiner, foreman at the mine, who is in Prescott on business. A fleet of trucks is bringing ma chinery from the . site of the old United Arizona Copper and Smelt ing company, 26 miles east of Mayer, to the Verde property, two miles from Cherry. Equipment for the power-house is being moved first, and consists of two engines, a 35 horsepower hoist, and two air com pressors for drilling purposes. Ma chinery for the 100-ton mill will be hauled later, as will lumber and equipment for the modern boarding and bunk houses which the company intends to install. The main shaft is now down to the depth of 375 feet, with a tunnel at the 100, 200 and 300-foot levels Each of the tunnels is drifted for from 75 to 200 feet, with enough ore blocked out to keep the mill operat ing for several months without further drifting, Steiner says. The ore is largely silicate in na ture, averaging about $40 to the ton in copper, with a showing of both gold and silver. When complete the property will consist of a power plant and 100-ton mill, in addition to the 200-ton cya- nide plant now on the ground. These units, together with the necessary buildings for the housing and feed ing of from 40 to 50 men which the company expects to employ when in full operation will make one of the most modern properties in this sec tion, according to Steiner. Ed Meek, W. W. Lincsba and J E. Russell are at the head of the company. M.

North and southbound trains change engines at Prescott, and due to the peculiar layout of the yards, which, provide only one track from the roundhouse for new engines to roll out to the main line for train arrivals, the long detour north and south was required. The new track will run from the new roundhouse (several years old) southward toward the depot. To build it, the present roundhouse of fice where the call-board is located will be moved, as the new track wiil switch in at about that point. The old roundhouse was recently completely torn down and dismant led, and the old turntable which served it has likewise gone into the discipj Ininrs arc now housed and Jim Caldwell as assistants.

Mr. Tribby emphasized the importance of the scout movement from the parents' viewpoint, as an aid to the training which a boy re ceives in the home. Lester Ruffner told the boys- that they should look forward to each new activity which the troop under took, as something which they must achieve, in the best possibel manner. As scoutmaster, Albert Akin em phasized the mental, spiritual and moral development which he hoped every boy would attain through obedience to the scout law.

The public is cordially invited to HEN CHEW MORE That is the Conclusion of Local Dealers in Answering National Sales Questionnaire Prescott men buy more chewing gum nowadays than women do, and more grown-ups spend their nickels for gum in preference to other con fections than do children. These conclusions were arrived at by a re cent questionnaire given local merch ants by the advertising department of a national gum manufacturing com pany. The primary object of the in quiry was to find out what brand of gum is the most popular, and the merchants were unanimous that Wrigley's Spearmint outsells all others two to one. A few years ago women bought twice as much gum as men did, ac cording to the observation of local dealers. The situation is now exact ly reversed and men buy twice as much as do women. Women buy and use gum sparingly, whereas men buy in quaintities of two, three and four packages at one time, especially in cigar stores. Gum chewing knows no age- limit. One local store is visitedby a very young customer who toddles in every day for his package, while another finds that the bulk of its trade on this item comes from elderly men and vlomch. According to Wm. E. Thompson, manager of the local Woohvorth store; this store's volume of business on chewing-gum has been as high as $25 on Saturday, which means the" sale of 700 packages. A statistician might -spend an interesting half day estigating the number of "chews," re quired to thoroughly masticate this and the amount sold by other Pres cott stores.
