WINSLOW’S MUNICIPAL CHRISTMAS TREE Sometime next week the city*’s municipal Chiistmas tiee will arrive and will be set up and decoiated with ornaments and lights owned by the city. That much for the city itself. The council bought the tree and ornaments. But what is a municipal Christmas tree without a few little presents for the w r istful little souls of poverty-sti icken ; families? Electric lights, spreading pine branches and gaily colored ornaments do not warm little tummies and although . the tree—as it stands now—may be a pretty thing to look upon it will not bring any particular joy to those to whom Christmas means merely heartaches. For time immemorial we have been cautioned at Christ mas time to “think of the other fellow'’. Too many of us in the rush of our own preparations for the glad event are inclined to put self first. has its share of poor. It is simply an ad dition to their unfortunate circumstances that they have, in nearly, all cases, large families. That means poor child ren. Poor children mean wistful hearts that cannot under stand w r hy the Christmas spirit that reaches other children passes them by. A few' little presents of candy and nuts, little knick knacks and what-nots will help in a large measure to alle viate the suffering that accompanies poverty at this time of year. A meeting has been suggested by City Engineer Stanley Watkins at which various clubs, women’s organizations and individuals with human hearts may lay plans to make this municipal Christmas Tree everything that the name implies. If everyone chips in it won’t cost anyone much. Dividends may be collected on the night the little tots gather around the tree—dividends written in expressions of „ joy on pinched little faces, the kind that no one has ever been “able to realize from selfishness. SHOULD BE CAREFUL According to press dispatches yesterday the farmers of Pima county have won out in -the federal court in an action brought against the state of Arizona which sought to quaran tine that district against a possible infection from the boll weevil. The victory came in the form of a sustainance of a temporary injunction granted by Federal Judge Sawtelle some time ago, this time by Federal Judge Ross of San Fran cisco. In granting the injunction the federal judge said that the only question before the court was that of actual infec tion, and inasmuch as it appears that there was no actual infection from the boll weevil, but a danger of infection that drew the state quarantine order, the farmers of Pima county have won out and as a result will realize on their crops, though the amount may be small due to the low price of r’cotton. State officials should be very careful in imposing quar antines, when there is no actual danger, as appears to have been the case in Pima county. To have maintained the » quarantine, when it was nroven no danger from the boll weevil really existed, would have meant possible ruin to some farmers. It sometimes takes a court action to curb m official authority not used with discretion. - o Copies of the first edition of the Winslow Daily Mail under the management and direction of Giragi brothers which appeared Friday, December 10, were received in Phoe nix yesterday. Prior to that time the paper had been pub lished only as a weekly. The Daily Mail is the only daily newspaper published between San Bernardino, Calif., and Albuquerque, N. M. It is also the first daily ever published in the northern part of Arizona. The first edition of the daily is a six-page, eight-column paper, containing Associated Press dispatches, state and local news and a well-filled editorial page.—Arizona Repub lican. o Tucson papers are carrying a story that Harold Bell Wright, noted novelist has further endeared himself to the of the people of the Old Pueblo by completely furnish ing the newly completed sister’s home of St. Mary’s hospital there. This is real public benefaction and reminds us of that old Quaker story in which two friends were feeling sorry over the poverty of another friend when a third came along and on being told the facts said: “But friends, have thee felt in thy pocket for him'.'’’’. That is just what the novelist did when he felt in his pocket to make the sister’s hospital home comfortable. o Results in the present church questionaire now being conducted by newspapers throughout the United States show that nine out of every ten people believe in God. It doesn’t take a straw vote to know that. o And now Mesa, right under the wings of Phoenix and her big hostelries has almost raised her quota of $125,000 to build a big tourist hotel. Flagstaff is making preparations to open her Monte Vista tourist hotel on January Ist, while Yuma is doing the same and Prescott is getting ready to build. Which leads us to wonder when Winslow will ever wake up and build a tourist hotel to accomodate the travel ling public who at present give us the go-by for lack of ac comodations. o It is said that Colonel Ned Green, deposed prohibition commissioner of California and Nevada, swore during his trial that he never let his guests drink alone. That’s why he isn’t prohibition director any more. What the govern ment wants for prohibition heads are men who don’t find it necessary to offer their guests a drink, then take one with them just to keep company. o Tj-’q lpte-to so “do >r ArT . Pl r ,.iqf»y»p° PH'ccpr'inor WE THANK YOU EDITORIAL AND FEATURE FADE With Other Editors ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (Yuma Sun) Leaks in the present immigra tion barriers are indicated in the annual report of the secretary of labor, showing that during the cur rent year 10,994 aliens, who were found to be unlawfully in the Uni ted States, were deported. Many of these were undesirables who had sought to enter the country through the regular channels and were sent back because they could not quality. Many also were those who had tried to evade the quota restrictions or legal obstacles by being smuggled into the country. Large as the number is, it rep resents a small per cent of the to tal leaks. Perhaps is represents only a tenth of the smuggled aliens. This is no criticism of the immi gration authorities. They could not be expected to watch every point, of two unguarded frontiers and two extensive coast lines. They con sctitute an insignificant force com pared ip .the more closely con gested centers, apprehending il legal entrants when such are sus pected. and 1 deporting them when their illegal status is proved. It has been charged a huge in ternational organization is oper- ating in ■ Europe nd Mexico for the purpose of smuggling undesirables into the United States. The alien pays a considerable fee, for which he is promised entry into the coun try. Whether or not such activi ties are on a wholesale scale, it is estimated that 100,000 foreigners of the type not wanted as American citizens every year enter America through illegal channels. As the need of restrictions in creases, due to the greatly increas ed population, the lure of Amer ica increases because of its pros perity. The restrictions have been legally enacted, but the restrictions are not automatic, neither can they be made fully effective under the present system. The 10,994 deportations this year is a record achievement for the immigration bureau. It is anything hut a record in efficient adminis tration when the total illegal im migrants are taken into consid eration. HOW TIME IS LOST BY SAVING- IT (Arizona Republican) Time is pricious, but unwise methods are sometimes employed in trying to save it, with the result of a greater loss of it. The driver of a car on Saturday night, in his great desire to save time ef fected a deplorable loss of it, not only for himself but for many others. His idea of saving time was to travel faster than a car in front of him was moving. At what rate of speed that car was progressing has not been stated, but in passing a car moving in the same direc tion one usually steps heavily 77 I N S L 0 77 E> A I L 7 Ivl A I L Good For That Bsmged-Up Feeling careening uncertainly back and forth across the roadway, still had a sufficient momentum to carry it skidding for ninety feet and throw it through a signboard with such force as to kill one of the occu pants. The car, but for that unfortu nate accident on Saturday night, would have reached Phofenix within half an hour. It was many hours before it whs removed from the scene of the tragedy which occup ied the time of many persons lor a considerable period. o FAIR ENOUGH A clergyman who rides to his church in an auto received an anonymous letter calling attention to tiie fact that the Lord never rode to church in a car. The clergyman read the letter from the pulpit, and then added. “If the writer of this letter will come to me next Sunday, properly saddled and bridled, 1 will be glad to follow the Lord’s example and come to church as He entered Jeru salem.” Fiction?

TODAY’S CONFESSION A LITTLE CHILD TOLD ME (By TESSIE GULLETT) (Chapter Three) You can imagine my feelings, my dear readers, when all my gentle man friends began to cut me when the news of my rash statement to the reporters leaked out in all the more libelous publications, but I meant it I said that it gave me no comfort to see (or smell) a man smoke a pipe. I received sev eral hot and rather personal mis sives from Mae Murray, Bebe Dan iels, et al., but I stuck to my gum (pardon me, guns).. There was one grain of comfort in the whole af fair.

BLACK YOUR JEWELER Santa Fe Watch Inspector V Mail Orders Given Special Attention Winslow ARIZONA 4 Mw/wz msmmM LmEgJI BY RODNEY DUTCHER XEA Service Writer WASHINGTON— "Bulldog jf oTn ' Walsh, the hero of Teapot Dome, is on the warpath again. His sudden challenge t>£ the fit ness of Arthur Tt. Gould of Maine to sit in the Senate was so unexpected that some of his Democratic col leagues are wondering if he is mere ly seeking to settle a question of the Senate’s right to expel in such a case, or if he isn’t perhaps laying some groundwork for the fight Dem ocrats are expected to make against the seating of William Vare of Pennsylvania and Frank L. Smith of Illinois next year. As he made his speech on behalf of his resolution for a cpmmittee in vestigatiqn of the Gould charges, his desk was piled high with reference books, from which he read rather copiously in order to forestall the counter-attack of the Republicans, led by Senator David A. Reed of Pennsylvania. He argued as a judge might deliver a charge to the jury, citing some precedents favorable to his case and some that were noW The Montana senator makes a striking figure as he stands arguing questions of law and precedence. No man in the chamber is better in formed on these subjects, than he. His immaculate appearance—he wears a frock coat and dark gray trousers —and his bristling white mustache add the impression he seeks to make as he dwells on the “profound importance” of the ques tion at issue. • • * WALSH himself says that the fate of Gould isn’t important —it’s the principle of the thing. Can the Senate fire Gould under the circumstances and if not, then what? He has taken pains to point out that even, if Gould went out, his Democratic opponent in the recent election w*ould not succeed him. It Is not difficult to believe Walsh when he says that his prime mo* tives are not political. NEVERMORE l jp The English landlady of a board ing house always made a point of asking departing guests to write something in her visitor’s book. She was very proud of it—of some of the people’s names who were in the volume and the nice things they said. “But there’s one thing I can’t understand,” the woman confided to a friend, “and that is what an American put in the book after stopping here. People always smile when they read it.” “What was it?” asked the other. “He wrote only the words, "Quoth the raven.” * MANICURIST “They say your daughter is mak ing money hand over fist.” “Yes, but the manicure business isn’t what it used to be.” o SECRET REASON “Why does Jones wear a beard?” “His wife knits his tieis.” V O n “ PARADE SITTING DOWN A three-year-old who had never seen a band playing except on parade, upon seeing a band seated in a bandstand, exclaimed, “Oh, daddy, see the parade sitting down.
