COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE ASSURED Winslow rallies to its’ needs! Although it appeared earlier this week that the Christmas Tree purchased by the city and which will arrive sometime during the middle of the week would he merely a lighted thing ol beauty, it is now as sured that the city’s children will have the gifts of candies, nuts and what-nots that go with the true Christmas Spirit, A group of public-spirited citizens gathered in meeting at the city hall Friday night pledged themselves to foot the bills or rater meet the deficit after others have been called ; upon. That is the true Christian spirit. The need had only to be shown and Winslowites leaped to the emergency. A committee is calling upon people asking that each help a little. Do your bit! Winslow’s children are entitled to a community tree with EVERYTHING that goes with it. If each fellow “digs” it isn’t necessary to dig deeply. Volume counts. A little from EVERYBODY will put it over BIG without hurting anyone’s pocketbook. Remember that •dimes built the Woolworth building but it required a lot of them. ' BOY SCOUT DRIVE FAILS Los Angeles Regional officials of* the Boy Scout move ment announce the complete failure of their drive for funds in Winslow, with the result that insofar as the national or ganization is concerned, the scout movement ends here De cember 31. This is not exactly a surprise—for there are reasons. In the first place the national officials or regional of ficials, call them what you may, selected probably the most inopportune time of the year to wage a finance campaign. Business men and individuals alike are too busy right at this time to pay more than passing attention to anything not directly connected with Yuletide. Were it not for the fact that Grand Canyon Council charter expires January Ist. it would have been better had the officials, waited until after the New Year—and something may be done at that time des pite the fact that so far as the national organization in Wins low ends December 31st. It is, possibly, an outgrowth of the growing antipathy throughout the nation, to the “nationalizing” of welfare movement that the average citizen doesn’t care much wheth er Winslow has the boy scouts or not. This “nationalization” of what purports to be a welfare organization has gradually lead to a point where mainten ance of the. organization itself, salaries to officials, office rent, stationery amotthts' tb" more tflSflh ex penditures for welfare work. This condition is not peculiar to any one organization that has been nationalized. At an investigation conducted several years ago at Chicago it was brought out that maintenance of at least one organization, nationally known, amounted to eighty-five per cent, the bal ance of 15 per cent going to actual charity work after unfor tunates succeeded in wading through fifteen miles of red tape. This, of course, may not be charged to the Boy Scout organization. It is regrettable if the boy Scout movement in Winslow must die. But is that the only way? Isn’t it possible for some of our public-spirited citizens to revive the movement again? NEEDLES SHOULD BE PROUD The Needles Nugget, our neighbor at the west end of the division came out this week with a splendid Christmas edition comprising- fourteen pages and set off with a beauti ful four color cover. The issue was replete with Christmas messages from the Needles merchants and the publishers of The Nuggett should be proud of their accomplishments. WE THANK YOU ■;!■. . i ' ■ The WinMaw.JJm&v'Mail -came. out with jits first issue last Friday morning, as ifs promised during the previous week. The daily publication is an eight-column six-page paper, neatly printed on a Du plex perfecting press, which was recently installed in the new three-story building which the enterprising, publishers had erected in Winslow. The transition from a weekly newspaper to a daily in a community the size of Winslow, carrying the morning As sociated Press report, is one of considerable importance, and which should be recognized by the people of the community in which it is published. The expense of getting out a daily newspaper is great, a fact that has been demonstrated in several instances in the past by the owners of the Holbrook Tribune. The layman hardly realizes this fact. Most people look upon it as merely a piece of paper with printing upon it. The great expense, the continued money outlay and the continuous and unremitting labor required on the part of all connected with it are matters that are rarely realized by the general public. The advertising people of Winslow (and they are posi tively the main source of income, as there is practically no profit from the circulation,) should strain their poc-ketbooks considerably in order to make the publication of their daily newspaper a success. It means much to any community to have the world’s news before them each day. The returns to the community are manifold, and this fact should be taken into consideration when called upon by the management for the advertising necessary to assume the continuance of the new and important adjunct to the community. Realizing the great undertaking on the part of the/ publishers, the great expense and the unremitting toil essen tial to success, the Holbrook Tribune extends its heartiest congratulations and well wishes to Giragi Bros, who have shown their confidence in their community, as well as their enterprise, in beginning the publication of the Winslow Daily Mail.—Holbrook Tribune. PASS THE CARMELS After printing reams about Carmel by the Sea in the Aimee McPherson case we are now confronted with the fact that the “Peaches” Browning divorce case will be heard at Carmel, New York. Others considering slush love affairs had better pick a place called Fudge or something similar next time—Carmel is overworked. 2Jeditdrial andfeatuhe face Hi ■ > THE BACK NUMBER _ With Other Editors i > : : - THE COLORADO CONFERENCE (Arizona Gazette) It is interesting to note the dif ference between the present' Colo rado river conference in progress in Los' Angeles and the first con ference held in Phoenix. The present conference may not ac complish anything definite, but the change in the attitude of the Cali fornia and Nevada committees is most, notable. In the first conference in Phoeo nix, the California and Nevada Nevada delegates had an ultimat um to which Arizona could acqui esce or there could be no parley. Naturally the meeting broke up right there. Arizona w%s not su ing for peace, its committeemen refused to meet upon such a basis. In the present conference the Calif ornia and Nevada committees have already conceded much. First, in accepting the meeting without reservations they capitu ’VaSffINGTONM imm-M W7-ASHINV.TON -If you nad \\ reached the end or" t natii climb to social recognition and. had finally been invited to a function which meant the attainment u a life s desire— And then some fat hut id power ful dowager had raised her nranette and proclaimed icily and loudlv that you were the fellow who had kissed her kitchen maid several years back — Well, innocent or guiltv ' you would have felt somewhat as Sena tor Arthur R Gould of Maine must have felt when Senator Thomas J . Walsh of Montana questioned his right to enter the Senate and de manded that a committee investigate charges of bribery which had been brought against him * It was life s most embarrassing moment for Gould It was in fact, the absolute limit of embarrassment for anybody You might .compare the embarrassment bf a justice los ing his trousers in the supreme court, but that wouldn t do because , the justices all wear robes —whether they wear pants also remains a mys tery ■* * ♦ » ♦ THERE was Gould, ready to be sworn in with Walsh of Massa-. chusetts.

'-\ 't lated from the stand previously taken, which in itself was a rever sal of their entire stand to Secondly, in even discussing the rights of Arizona to a jiist divi sion of watery they have acknow ledged that such a right belongs to Arizona. Third, in the con sideration of the amount of tax demanded by Arizona and the amount of tax the city of Los An geles claims they can pay, the committee has virtually acknowled ged the right of Arizona to tax the power developed from the Colorado in this state, even though they have questioned that right in the discussion. President Coolidge in his mes sage to congress, in spite of the attitude which the administration has taken with respect to the Boulder canyon dam, made no ref erence to that project, but he did nearly espouse the principles upon which Arizona has stood in trying to effect an agreement on the Colorado river. When the president said, “Water is the irreplaceable natural re source” and further on staated “Its storage on the higher reaches of streams to meet growing needs, tp be used repeatedly as it flows to ward the seas, is a practical and a prudent business policy” lie was sounding the very principles for which Arizona has been fighting., The California and Nevada com mittees, like the president, though they have been working in the op-„ posite dirction for the past three years, in this conference have been. forced for the first time to accept the Arizona principles. They have clouded it with the discussion of details, it is true. Becausf they have centered on details, noth ing may come of the meeting. If they would, without any attempt at stategy, try to agree upon prin-. eiples, namely the right of water 1 ancl the right to tax power, the details would become economic problems that would be solved in a scientific way. California and Nevada have in a roundabout way made these admissions. This con ference may fail because they will not openly concede them now, but the next conference is the more'- likely to he successful. Consid ering past events that is almost victory.

About this time the con ductor came in, and as he showed me by his card that he had 13 years more seniority than the brakeman, I was shifted to his knee. It was embarrassing, and right there I vowed that I was on my last lap as far as that train crew was concerned, even if the division superintendent himself was to pop down out of the cupola.
