time. The garage and repair shop are both operated by Mr. Clyde S.
Willis who was formerly employed by the Highway Desert Garage

SPOKE ON STATE LIBRARIES
At the last meeting of the Arizona
Archaeological and Historical Society,
held at the University May 20th, Dean
Scarlett gave an interesting address
on "State Libraries." He referred to
the work of the Historical Society of
Wisconsin and described the system of
collecting, classifying, filing, and dis
tributing valuable data relating to the
history of the state in the splendid
million-dollar library of the Universi
ty of Wisconsin. Here in Arizona,
said Dean Scarlet ,is a wealth of his
torical material of supreme interest
and it is most important that this
valuable material be collected and
placed on record thru a society or
ganization for this specific purpose
and assisted by adequate state appro
priations. Miss Lutrell, Librarian of the Uni
versity Library, told of the many
priceless historic documents recently
bequeathed to the Library by the late
Mr.Merrill P. Freeman, a member of
the Arizona Archaeological Society.
The material was not yet classified,
but it contained many interesting old
diaries and records of Spanish and
pioneer days in what is now known as
Arizona. All clippings relating to
Arizona are mounted and indexed on
a method which has been modelled
on that of the Wisconsin Historical
Society described by Dean Scarlett.
A Bibliography of books, pamphlets,
and articles on Arizona was published
by Miss Lutrell in 1913, and since that
date many items have been added,
making the number at this time over
