Parcels for Overseas.
Because the people at home have been sending so much stuff to the American soldiers in France, a great deal of which was useless and unnecessary, and in some cases the shipments were in violation of law, the postoffice department has issued an order that on and after April Ist, parcels for members or in dividuals connected with the ex peditionary forces in Europe will not be accepted for mailing or dispatched unless they contain such articles only as are being sent at the written request of the addressee, approved by his regimental or higher commander, or an executive member of the organization with which he is connected. In other words the soldier will have to request the shipment of an article before it will be accepted in the mails. Postmasters must secure the as surance of the sender in each case that all the articles con tained in the parcel are being sent at the addressee’s approved written request, and that the written request is enclosed in the package, by requiring the sender to place on the wrapper under his name and address the follow ing endorsement: “This parcel contains only articles sent at ap proved request of addressee, which is enclosed.” This rule is to be strictly enforced by all postmasters. Disloyal Postmaster. According to the Mohave Coun ty Miner the postmaster at Chlor ide, J. M. Russell, who has been in charge of the office for several years, was removed from office last week because he refused to display the American flag from the postoffice, and it was further charged he had told people the Liberty Loan was not good and advised against the purchase of bonds. If these reports are true it was time he was removed from his position, as no one should be allowed in the government ser vice who is not thoroughly loyal in every thought and word. Soiled Doves Leave. County attorney Larson was in Winslow Wednesday on one of his regular trips to clear the town of the soiled doves, who manage to float in here from time to time between the regular visits of the County Attorney. Two of the painted dames, who have been living in the A. C. hotel for some time, left early on the morning of the arrival of Mr. Larson, but he found one up-stairs over the Poy store and ordered her to leave. Mr. Larson will be in the city again to-day with some warrants, -which will be served if the parties return. Books for Soldiers. ‘ It seems to be necessary to call attention again to the matter of donating books for the soldiers. The number to be gathered in Winslow has now been raised to 400, and that number can easily be secured if every one will cull over his library and give such books as he no longer cares to preserve. Prof. C. C. Grover has this matter in charge, and if you will telephone him at the high school, advising you have books to give, he will send a messenger to get them. He wants to get the books all assembled and shipped within the next two weeks. Books with the covers gone, or the binding in poor con dition, are just as acceptable as others, because the government rebinds them free of expense. Take a day off to go over your books, and lay out those you will give, and then call Mr. Grover early Monday morning. Woman Sacrifices Life. American soldier boys are not the only heroes on the battle front in France. Within the past week two young American wo men, who were post exchange workers for the Y. M. C. A., have been killed by German bombs. One of the women, Miss Marion G. Crandell, was a sister of S. McCormack of Kingman. Miss Crandell offered her ser vices ‘ to the Young Men’s Chris tian Association for work at the French front and was accepted February 14, 1918. She sailed a few days later on a vessel that was pursued for two days by submarines. Though not con voyed until the last forty-eight hours of the voyage, the ship es caped. Miss Crandell was a versatile and accomplished woman. She was prominent in educational circles in America. She was ed ucated in France and Germany after finishing'a collegiate course in this country. After eight years of study of art and the romance languages in France, Miss Crandell offered her services to the Y. M. C. A. and was given charge of a large canteen near the firing line. The cable to .Mrs. McCormack stated that she was seated at the fireside of the canteen when the shell exploded that caused her death. Electric Theatre New Management.
