She may have both so Postmaster General Hays has just ruled," following a long personal appeal from Mrs. H, Gardner, member of the Civil Service Commis sion. There has been no law on the subject but heretofore the practice in the Postoffce Department when a postmis tress marries has been to re quire that she secure a new appointment, execute a new bond or pass a civil service examination, in competition with others seeking the of fice. Mrs. Gardner termed, i t an "obviously unjust condi tion," The opinion of the solicitor of the department was asked and his recom mendation, on which the Postmaster General acted, was not only that there was no lesra! obstacle other than deDartmental rulings, but that the old regulations were a restriction upon marriage and therefore "against pub lic policy." MARSHAL FOCH The illustrious marshal has come and gone. Unlike feome other celebrities, he is very democratic. As the saying goes, "He is as com mon as an old shoe." He Í3 never too weary to salute those who gathered to see him. We shook hand? with the great man at Fortress Eh renbreitstein, Germany ear ly in 1919, and while w e boasted but a lieutenant's commission and he com-mander-in-chief of the allied forces, we were treated with courtesy and kindness. We servéd under two French generals and found them the same way. The French are a lovable race. , Let's always remain - re main their friends. Work is again being push ed with all haste on the Scorse building. With fair weather a great deal should be accomplisaed within the next thirty days.

ÜKCU -IT A PROCLAMATION Designating Saturday, Dec ember 17th as Forget-Me-Not Day I The debt which we as American citizens, owe t o those who gave their servic es for this country in the Great War, is so real that we cannot be reminded of it too often, especially if the results is in some concrete re cognition of what we owe them. Particularly is this true with reference to the thousands of disi4)Ied Ameri can soldiers who now find themselves unable to earn a livelihood as a result of the wounds they received or they endured in that tremen dous conflict. Although our government is carrying out a program of rehabilitation for the be nefit of these sufferers, there are many cases which can not be reached by govern mental machinery, and i t therefore behooves us t o add our assistance in any way possible to afford them relief.' Saturday, December 17th, has been designated by the National Headquarters o f the Disabled American Vet erans of the World War as the day on which a nation wide effort will be made for the purpose of creating a re fund to be used exclusively in assisting disabled veter ans who are in need of help. It is-proposed that this laud able plan be carried out through the sale of forget-me-nots in every American community. The funds thus obtained are to be divided equally between the local chapter and the treasury of the national organization. It appearing that the Dis abled American War Veter ans of the World War is an organization, the members ind officers 01 wnicn serve vi thou t salary and the mo ives of this campaign being vholly altruistic, I would be speak for this effort the íearty cooperation and as sistance of the people of Ari zona. May not the Christmas spirit which is finding ex pression in cur hearts a t this time reach out to those men who are paying with pain and suffering for the privileges which we enjoy, and may we not respond dec. 16. 1921 D Wide Lfcl Mc MAKE lUv vr tin UP TO PATE PRESS O?

Gold spent Saturday in Holbrook with the hoard of supervisors of Navaio countv d the official adoption of the recently surveyed boundary line between the two coun ties.
