Wednesday, Dec. 15. 1920. TIME TO CONCENTRATE EFFORT ON BEST OF ALL THE BRIDGE PLANS A MONUMENTAL free bridge between EI Pao and Juarez has been talked of for many yean. If Forfirio War had remained in office a year or two fencer the project -r,u!d have been consummated then, for be bad committed himself to it as a national project. But now, with northern Mexico men at the head of the Mexican government in ilraoat all important posts for the first tune in Mencos history, it ia probable that the project can be prsed to successful realization if we on the border do our part. Good feeling between the neighbor peoples is rapidly beisg restored. Meer at any time during the revolutionary period has border friction been serious, and indeed the con duct of the people of these two cities during the disturbed period has many times been the strongest factor in main taming international peace when often it seemed as if the to national eovernments were determines to nave war. Now the old time friendly business and "rnnr restored not onlv on tbe border bat and the ootloos: is for an early resumption of the tradi tional familiar intercourse. The bndce Our vision of a suitable bridge is of tically simple structure the full width from bunding line to building tine, extending straight through in line with the street; sidewalks on the bridge the full width of El Paso street sidewalks, the drive carried across same width as the paving an numerous artistic lights on both sides of the great inter national boulevard extending all the way through from Pioneer plaza in El Paso to Calle ComercU in Ctndad Juarez such a street as would not have its equal ia either republic, for interest, appropriateness, and variety at its charms. The boulevard would become the great paseo, and weald be lined continually with foot passengers and automobiles. At times of celebrations it would be profusely decorated, and military and civic parades wenld Naturally such a development would be followed promptly by the erection of good buildings from end to end in both ernes. Where the boulevard crossed tbe river, beautiful parks would be developed on either bank of the stream; and in Juarez, where there are no niMinr holdings to interfere, the avenue itself would be parked on important public buildings, dubs, and El Paso street is the (only street straight through to Calle Comerao (just one mile) without a bend and developed in Juarez as part of a sew and modem street and park system. On the Juarez side this weald be the easiest and cheapest route to open up, and it would abut at such a paint that it could be continued on south to ad vantage without destroying existing buildings. A careful study of all-proposed routes makes it clear that El Paso street is the one for all reasons preferable. The railroad bridge of the Mexican National, and the hue of this railway on the Juarez side, are in the way at present. This presents no great difficulty. The bridge can be moved a little way up stream, the tracks in Juarez can be moved west a little, and the new straight boulevard can "hen be developed satisfactorily and permanently at mini mum cost. This change will give the railway a better renting than now. It will make possible a much ntsre economical ar rangement of the custom house or adnana group in Juarez, and the more expeditions hasdling-of freight and passengers. It is understood that the Mexican government railway officials and the people of Juarez all favor this arranger r-.ent. It ia tame the people of El Paso were concentrating on this best of all plans so that all promotion work can go forward with a definite plan.

ARIZONA'S attitude teward redamatfen is that every acre capable of producing food or ether crops of value should be atifUed. There are milikns of acres yet in that state that could be pat te work serving a population many times what the state's population is sow, provided these acres could get water. Getting water to this land is just a matter of money and engineering. Congress is in session. There is apposition te the recla mation program. Gov. Thomas E. Campbell of Arizona has repeatedly said that he wants redamatfen not only for his own state, but for the entire arid west That is a spirit worthy of the cooperation of other states. The west as a whole sbouH present its case te congress. In the north the farmers are apposed to voting large funds for reclamation in the arid regions for the reason that it would bring into competition -with their fertile acres the valleys of the sosthwest Selfishness should not dominate the congress, even though it may dominate a few of the one side at feast, or hotels would Use it. that can be carried more shortsighted Before we insist United States we Kck the worH.

Enormous preparations continue for but movement It is a bria-ht ennnv dev. Witness two big air fights; we lose one sausage balloon and ooa plane; tbe Germans lose four balloons and two planes. In all these German attacks on oar bal loons the same tactics are followed: a single German plane is seen ceasing swiftly from the enemy lines straiaht toward tbe balloon, but flying very high; reaching a point 1509 or 2000 feet immediately above the balloon" and so being secure from observation from the balloon or from defensive fire, be swoops straight down to with in a few hundred feet and fires incen diary or explosive ballets into tbe gas bag, then he flies back home1. Tbe balloon instantly takes fire and drops swiftly and straight down, red flames bursting from every point and a column of inky black smoke remain ing standing in trfe air for seme seconds hi the trail of the wreck.
