This play by Charles Rann Kennedy is rated as one of the greatest dramas of recent years. In the hands of an all-professional cast, such t as Js scheduled for this chautauqua, it should draw a record crowd to the big tent. An outstanding lecture event is scheduled in the coming of Judge Geo. D. Alden, of Massachussets, direct descendant of Priscilla and John Alden, one of the platform giants of the present day. His lec ture "The Needs of the Hour" is a lecture classic. It is bubbling over with fine humor and flashing wit and underneath all possesses - a strong inspirational appeal.

WINSLOW PEOPLE IN DIVORCE CASE An Interesting divorce case has been in progress in the superior court during the week, in which E. Y. Malich, of -Winslow, sues for divorce against Diana Malich. Mrs. Malich does not contest the suit. The controversy centers about several thousand dollars worth of diamonds, which Mrs. Malich claims were given to her by her husband. He claims he purchased them as an investment, and that they are community property. Attorneys W. H. Burbage and C. H. Jordan are the counsellors for the'plaintiff, and J. L.

It is expected that a decision on the case will be reached tomorrow. PIONEERS TO BE ROYALLY TREATED With an announcement that the date of April 12 and 13 has been set for the pioneer's reunion which is to be held in Phoenix under the auspices of the Arizona Republican of that city, the first step in out lining the program for the unique gathering has been taken according to word received here today. - The plans for the reunion, which is designed to be the greatest and most exclusive event of its kind ever held in the West, inculde a big parade, a barbecue and amusements at Riverside park, the chief amuse ment place of Phoenix, which has been given . for the celebration, meetings of the pioneers in one of the large halls of the city, and a number of entertainment features. With the exception of the railroad fare and the actual living expenses of the pioneers during the two days is to be borne by the Republican. More than 1,300 pioneers have reg istered with ' the Republican, and hundreds of. these also have sent in their reminiscences of the early days. It is desired that these stories of the beginning of Arizona be written by as mány pioneers as possible and sent to the Pioneer editor. The reminiscences are to be published in a special edition of that paper dur ipg the reunion, and with them are to be printed numerous other special features. There is still time for pioneers who have not sent their names to become, registered In the record of old-timers which the newspaper is preparing. All that is necessary is that the pioneer send his name, ad dress, age and length of residence in the state, provided he has been here continuously, or almost contin uously since 1885. - He should also include such reminiscences of the early days as he can remember. The manner in which the story is told is of little importance, the chief thing desired being the information which they contain. All communications should be addressed ' to the Pioneer Editor in care of the Republican. - EARLY RETURNS CALL PACKER STRIKE While no definite reports have been published, due to the fact that, in' some large packing house centers such as Chicago,- Kansas City and Omaha, night shifts were still vot ing yesterday, indications from re turns, already in aré that the senti ment is unanimous in favor of auth orizing the international officers to call a strike in the event that the government fails to have the pack ers return to a compliance with the war-time arbitration agreement. California fruit growers have launched a nation-wide campaign to put the raisin back in legitimate channels of circulation as a food, and out of use as a subject for ex periments by the amatuer brewer, who is responsible for the campaign. A resolution recently introduced in the Idaho senate proposes the secess ion of the northern part of the state consisting of the ten northern counties. This territory claims a population of 150,000 people and an area of 35,000 square miles with property valued at $150,000,000. CATTLE DTI No ON DISTRICT RANGES Cattle are already dying of starva tion on the range adjacent to Jer ome, according to James Page, of Oak Creek who was in town today. One of Page's neighbors recently made a trip over all the ranges be tween upper Oak creek and the Camp Verde country. In one day's ride he saw twenty dead animals. All cattlemen who have hay, or the money to buy hay with, are now feeding their poorest stock. The Coconino Cattle Company is having hay, shipped to Clarkdale and freight ed from there -V- its ranches. It is said that the Coconino company's expense for hay alone totals between $100 and $125 a day, seven days' in the week. At this rate it will not take long to eat up several years' profits. Verde Copper News. LEGION PROGRAM PRESENTED The American Legion's legislative program for the extra session of congress was presented to President Harding last week by the National Commander, J. W. Galbraith, Jr., who says the president was impres sed by the necessity of making more adequate provisions for war veter ans, especially disabled -men. IN THE OIL HELD ZUNI WELL GROWS INTERESTING Messrs. Jordan and Douglas of the Zuni Company were in town Tues day evening and returned to camp. It is reported that the progress at this well is definite and while not as rapid in the process of under reaming as had been hoped for, still no untoward event has held up the gradual progress. Very little, we understand, remains to be done at this well before new depth is accomplished, ,and in the opinion of the - driller and company officials very interesting results may be looked for before much greater depth has been made. r PARAMOUNT OIL CO. TO ENTER The Paramount Oil Company filed its articles of incorporation with the corporation commission. Many Phoenix men are said to be interest ed in the company, and while, it will first ' prospect in California, it will later develop its interest in Arizona at Hot Springs Junction and Hol brook. The capital of the corpora tion is $500,000 divided into shares of 10 cents each. ASK EXTENSION OF TIME The owners of leases in the Hol brook oil field have circulated a pe tition to be presented to the secre tary of interior, asking for an ex tension to one year of the time in which they are required to com mence operations on their holdings. The' petition has been signed by practically every business man in Holbrook. THE- HOLBROOK IS WAITING The Holbrook Oil Company is still waiting for the socket ordered re cently and which they find will have to be made. Recent advices are to the effect that this piece of equipment will arrive any day, when work at the well will be re sumed. "OLD-TIMER" STEPS IN Louis Kuehne, of Phoenix, stopped over in Holbrook Tuesday, enroute to Montana. Mr. Kuehne formerly lived here, and still holds interests in oil companies and leases in the field. MANAGER MADDEN TO RETURN Manager Jack Márden of the Hol brook will return within the next day or two when definite announce ment of the plans of this company are expected. 7 ' CASING AT ADAMANA The work of casing off the water from the Adamana well continues uninterrupted. No developments of interest have been announced this week. LARGE LAND DEAL ON Rumors of another large land deal are rife, details of which we- expect to obtain for our next issue. WALKER BOY DIED LAST FRIDAY NIGHT Reece Harriell- Walker, a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Walker, died last Friday night at about eleven o'clock. The death of the child, who was nearly six years of age, was the termination of a hard strug gle against whooping cough, with which he had been Ul for some time. Funeral services "were held from the Methodist church at three o' clock Saturday. Rev. Speck de livered a nice and appropriate ser mon, and the singing by the choir was beautiful. CARD OF THANKS In appreciation of the many kind nesses done us before and after the death of our little one, we express our sincere thanks. We also thank those who took part in the singing under the leadership of Miss Gard. J. E. Walker and family. DRUG COMPANY WILL DRESS UP The interior of the Holbrook Drug Company's store is being remodeled so as to give more space for the dis play room, and to allow for the ad dition of a refreshment parlor In the rear of the store. Mr. Scorse, the manager, says the room Will be furnished along modern lines, and it will be made an attractive room. AMERICAN TROOPS WILL BE HELD ON RHINE FOR WHILE American troops will remain on the Rhine, at least until the present emergency arising out of Germany's refusal to accept the reparations pro posals is cleared up. The first act of the Harding admin istration toward Europe is a passive policy, but it is not without a cer tain significance 'that Mr. Harding announced during the campaign that American troops would be brought back from the Rhine as quickly as possible after his election. Arrange ments had been made to effect the withdrawal of the American con tingent at an -early date, but the sudden turn of events in Germany has made it necessary to delay.action. WEEK DEVELOPMENT IN OCCUPIED GERMANY America is a disinterested by stander in regard to the new allied "invasion" of Germany. The United States army of occupation at the Coblenz bridgehead will remain where it is until' and unless the terms of the armistice, by reason of which it is there, are violated. American troops are on the Rhine by virtue of an armistice, and not because of peace terms. The allied forces are moving further into Germany, because the terms of a peace which they concluded with that country are not being carried out. America having made no peace treaty with Germany, there are no terms as far as we are con cerned which have been violated or call for action on our part. The passive attitude of the German people under occupation seems to have been no indication of real sent iments. Demonstrations were pre vented early this week only through the orders of Allied authorities. The German government addressed a note to the secretary of the league of nations protesting against the penalties being enforced by the en tente for the nonfulfillment of her reparations obligations. Belgian patrols which took con trol of the rural portion of Hamborn last week have been removed, and this action on the part of the allies has tended to ease the situation in that part of the country. Cooperation by the German secur ity police and allied troops has been effected as a result of German in itiative. Restaurants, cafes, cabarets, wine rooms and theaters of Dusseldorf are cheerfully catering to a record patronage, which is not particularly affected by the ringing of the cur few at 10 o'clock in the evening. French troops have continued to march into Germany throughout the week. The French government has specifically demanded a payment in cash from Germany of 1,000,000 marks before March 23. BUSINESS INSTITUTE OPENING The business institute will be open for work on next Monday, according to reports from the mangement. Mr. Chaffin stated further that the enrollments were coming in so much faster than they had hoped for, as a consequence of which they are forced to take steps to secure ad ditional instruction force. The bus iness at present looks very promis ing. WARD CONFERENCE AT MORMON CHURCH At a ward conference held at the Church of Jesus Christ, L. D. S., last Sunday, Bishop O. C Williams, of Snowflake, submitted a consolidat ed report on all the wards, which showed all auxiliaries fully organ ized, and a general increase in all the activities of the church. The meeting was more largely attended than any previous meeting of the kind held in Holbrook. The conference occupied two ses sions; the morning sesión, at 10:30, was taken up principally in the .ren dering of reports from the auxill iary organizations, after which Elder Frank McLaws, a member of the stake presidency, delivered an ad dress bearing on- the work of the Sunday school. Alof Larson then took the floor and reviewed the growth of the work in and about Holbrook. James M. Flake spoke generally of. how truth is persever ing in the world, and voiced his be lief that the work of the church is destined to overcome error in the world. Voluntary donations for the wor thy poor were shown to have in creased greatly, and all who are in need in this vicinity have been cared for. ' During this morning session a special song was rendered by Hiram Sutcliff, of St. Joseph. Another special song by three little girls, Zena Patterson, Zella Farr and her sister, was especially good. At the evening .session;- besides' the business " matters. Elder John Murray spoke of his work in the Ward, and of the meaning of the gos pel. Elders Larson and Flake spoke again in the evening.

REAL BAKERY FOR HOLBROOK HOLBROOK BAKERY PROPRIETOR WILL MEET THE DEMAND OF HIS TRADE ft required only a few months of business in Holbrook for Amiel Berl ing, proprietor of the Holbrook Bak ery, to learn that the residents of this city really appreciate good bak ?ry service. He purchased a bak ery south of the river last Septem ber and through the fine quality of his product he has since built up a good patronage. Lately he has been faced with the necessity of producing bread of the same good quality, but which can be sold more cheaply. To keep pace with the demands on his business, Mr. Berling is now building an up-to-date bakery, near the river, but on the north' side. This building, when completed and fully equipped, will represent an in vestment of over $5000. The structure will be of tile and brick, and will be absolutely fire proof. , The front, will be made to lonform to the modern idea that 'the first impression is the lasting Impression,", in that white tile will make it, not only striking in ap pearance, but it will also be sug gestive of the very neat and clean nterior. In the way of equipment Mr. Beri ng will have the besx which will enable him to produce the best of bread and pastry at a minimum of cost. The oven will be a late pat ent, fired from the outside, and all working of the bread will be done by electric power, in a sanitary man ner, and wrapping will be done elec trically. To quote Mr.' Berling, he will have i "real little bakery." It is ex pected that the opening of the new plant will occur in May.
