of vital importance to the people of
this country. Mr. Nilsson is a pow

Gallup has called off the football
game which was scheduled for Satur
day at that town between the high
school there and the local squad. Mr.
Grady Gammage received a telegram
Monday from the Gallup coach stating
that it would be impossible for his
team to play the Winslow aggrega
tion this season.
As a result of this action the local
squad has but one more game, which !
is scheduled for Thanksgiving day at |
Flagstaff with the Normal school.
Navajo county has 93 teachers in
employed in the public schools, ac
cording to a statement recently made
by Mrs. K. V. Kinney, county super
intendent of schools. At the end of
the first week of the school term
there were 2334 pupils enrolled. The
number is considerably higher at this
time, due to continued enrollment.

i dents are the ones who were selected
r in the try-outs to represent Winslow
[ “Hi” at the mass meeting. Their
speeches alone will be well worth
. hearing.
1 Aside from the speeches there will
also be entertainment numbers in
cluding selections by the High school
orchestra; a trio, “America Trium
phant”, by the High school glee club
a play, “Naturalization of Mr. A. B.
C.”, by the Junior high school; songs
, by the fourth and fifth grades of the
Washington school; and a play, “De
claration of Independence”, by the
Southside school. After the program
there will be a short discussion of
local educational problems.
Thus far National Educationl Week
has been one of the most successful
ever held here. Not only the parents
but the students are taking a great
interest in it. Ministers of all de
nominations preached sermons on
education last Sunday, which was
observed as God and Country Day.
A meeting was held at the South
side school Tuesday night. At least
300 parents and children attended.
Short speeches were given by Rev.
Father Ed. Albouy and Mr. Grady
Gammage. A short but very enter
taining program was given by the
Wednesday was a big day at all thf
schools in the city. A large number
of parents and interested people
visited the various educational build
The Rotary club visited the High
school in a body, having luncheon
there. Members of the domestic
science class prepared the luncheon
for the Rotarians.
Today there will bea parade of the
school children and the high school
students through the streets with
banners and floats. The people of
Winslow are urged to be down town
to see this affair, which will be at
3 p. m. A number of people of Win
slow and the High school students
have taken much of their time and
have gone to a great deal of trouble
in preparing floats and banners for
this occasion. The parade will have
many interesting things and inge
nious devices which will well be
worth a trip down town.
A large number of posters bearing
interesting information and maxims
on education are display in the win
! dows of the business houses. These
| placards were prepared by the high
' school students.
Governor Hunt definitely announc
ed Monday that he had no intention
whatever of calling the Sixth legis
lature into extraordinary session de
spite rumors to the contrary.
“I will not call a special session
of the Sixth legislature,” the gover
noi emphatically declared, “unless
som thing unusual happens such as
lire or famine, or an epidemic of some
kind that would neccessitate calling
the legislature together.”
It has been generally rumored that
! the governor would call a special ses
i sion of the legislature and that it
j would convene shortly after the first |
I of the year.
The governor, in making the de-
I claration yesterday, stated that at
i present there were no matters which
jwou.d warrant calling the legislature
I and that any matters on which leg
i islation are desired were of such
nature that they could wait until the
regular session of the Seventh legis
lature in 1925.
The Sixth legislature, the governor
pointed out, convened in regular ses
sion for 90 days, the full time accord
ed them by the law, without accom
plishing a great deal in the way of
construction legislation.
He also pointed out that the Sixth
legislature, after meeting in regular
session, employed more clerks than
any of the former state legislatures
and that their appropriation bills to
cover the expense of the session
made a total expenditure greater than
that of any previous session of the

portance than any that has arisen so
far,” the governor declared, “will
, have to make its appearance before I
call a special session. I don't want

possibly be avoided.”
Besides that the governor said

Undoubtedly the best entertainment
that has been given this year at the
high school assembly was the pro
gram rendered at the regular chapel
period last Friday by Mrs. Grady
Gammage assisted by Mrs. J. Day.
At no time this term have the stu
dents responded so w'hole-heartedly
as they did at last Friday’s program.
They sat rapt in the entertainment
until it was completed at 12:30. Any
one who has spoken before a high
school assembly knows how hard it
is to hold the interest of students
when it is past their luncheon time.
Mrs. Gammage succeeded, however,
and numerous are the compliments
that have been made on the program.
The first number was a Beethovep
piano solo played by Mrs. Day. The
difficult piece was rendered in a mas
terly manner and was very warmly
Following the piano solo Mrs. Gam
mage gave several humorous readings
from Booth Lowrey and Ed. Vance
Cooke, all of which delighted her au
ditors. Not a single piece failed to
get a whole-hearted response. The
next number was a selection by Mrs.
Gammage from the Madison Cawein.
This, like the preceding numbers, was
excellent and registered a distinct hit.
Mrs. Gammage then gave a talk on
the comparative and contrastic qual
ities of the Passion and the Pilgrim
age plays. The analysis was highly
interesting and instructive.
The program was concluded with a
reading from the opening and the clo
sing scenes of the Passion Play, the
j Triumphal Entry and the Ascension,
i Mrs. Gammage arranged this reading
in her own words. Although this kind
j of number is very difficult to give, the
I piece was one of the best of the pro
! gram.
Tex Austin, who put the world’s
champion cowboy contests in Chicago
and New York, is in town with a view
of making his home here if he can
find a suitable cattle outfit. In 1920
and 1921 Mr. Austin produced two
world’s champion cowboy contests in
Chicago, giving the largest amount of
prizes that has ever been offered for
such an affair. Not satisfied with this
accomplishment, lie produced world’s
championship contests at the New
York stadium in 1922 and 1923. In
these rodeos he gave prizes amount
| ing to $50,000 in each instance, like
wise the largest amount ever given in
[ prizes or cowboy contests.
Mr. Austin has produced more ro
| deos than any other man. His home
j is at Las Vegas, N. M.

Two Robbers Hold Up
Case Early Saturday
Walking into the Parlor Case about
1:30 Saturday morning while the
night man, Chin King, was in the
kitchen, two men entered a booth,
drew the curtain and when King went
in to take their orders, they held him
up taking $39 from his pocket and
$26 from the cash register.
After backing out of the case, the
robbers ran east across the city camp
ground. When they started to run

Woman’s Club Meeting
Because of National Educational
Week the Woman’s club will have no
regular program this afternoon. Af
ter the routine business has been dis
posed of, Miss Cathlyn Kessler will
; address the club for a few moments.
The meeting will adjourn at 3 o'clock
| so that the members may attend the

With a big Thanksgiving turkey
supper first in order the annual
bazaar given by the Catholic ladies
opened Wednesday at 5 p. m. in the
Pastime theatre and will continue
tonight, w’hich will undoubtedly be
the best and most attractive evening
as most of the prizes will be awarded.
Satisfying is the word for the tur
key supper. This was a rare treat
of home cooking. The generous help
ing of savory turkey with cranberry
jelly, dressing, vegetables, salad and
pumpkin pie certainly did satisfy.
The supper was complimented most
aptly by a man who attended and
said that if he was not invited out
to Thanksgiving dinner, he already
had his.
After the big feed the various at
tractions including the fancy, apron
and candy booths and the fish pond
became the center of interest. At
8:30 the music struck up and the
dance, which was well attended, be
gan. Every one certainly enjoyed
himself during the whole evening.
■* The bazaar was well attended last
night, the dance proving very popu
lar. The hot-dog stand, which too
t the place of the turkey supper of the
e night before, did a rushing business,
. Johny Moore cooking 'em better than
1 ever.
Y Tonight, the last day of the fair,
will be the biggest evening. The la
. dies have many things at the various
Y booths, which will make appropriate
Christmas presents. Many of the
I business men of the city have con-
Y tributed valuable prizes, which will
x be awarded tonight. A dance will
t also be given this evening.
3 The following business houses have
generously contributed prizes: Dagg
' Mercantile Company, Babbitt Bros.
3 Trading Company, Bruchman Curio
Shop, E. H. Black, Jeweler, Central
j News Stand, Star Grocery Store,
3 Greaves Store, Cahn Mercantile Com-

house that has contributed, the name

! A man who gave his name as John
■ Bank and who said he had no rela
tives, died at the Woods hotel Friday
morning from heart trouble induced
by rheumatism. He was buried in the
iv'cal cemetery Saturday afternoon.
Banks came to Winslow on Novem
ber 8. At that time he was suffering
with his heart. He rented a room at
, one of the local rooming houses where
| he remained until November 15 when
he was taken to the Woods hotel, j
L The clerk, who looked after him, I
| found him dead in a sitting posture !

■ about 3 o’clock Friday morning.
It was not though that Bank was j
, in a serious condition before he pass- |
! 1 ed away, and as a result no attempt j
! i was made to find out his connections. !
| Nothing was found in his effects to j
; show where he lived or whether he
i had any relatives.
When asked what he did, he said
that he had knocked about the world j

Miss Kessler is in Winslow for a
few weeks to visit mothers and to
help in creating an interest in the
prenatal care of the child and its care
from birth to the school age.
Basketball practice has started at
Winslow High in preparation for the
schedule, which begins on December
22 when the local squad and the
Flagstaff high school team will stage
the first cage battle of the season at
the Washington school auditorium.
About 35 men are out for practice.
Janeway, Tully and Hohn, who play
ed on the team last year and who are
letter men, will be back in the game
this season. With these three hoop
artists as a nucleus, Coach Porter
hopes to develop a fast and formid
able team.
Several of the boys who substituted
last year are showing up well and
will undoubtedly make good material
for the squad. It is likely that eith
er Janeway or Hohn, who played for
ward positions last season, will be
shifted to center. This will mean
that two guards will have to be de
veloped. Tully is also a forward.
Ten games have already been
scheduled for the season, and it is
likely that others will be arranged.
The games that have been scheduled
thus far and the towns where they
take place follows:
December 22, Flagstaff high school

January 11, Flagstaff Normal at j
January 19, Williams at Winslow.

Rotary*Anns Give Party,
Which Causes Much Glee
Winslow Rotary-Anns entertained
the Rotarians with a merry dinner
party Saturday evening at the Hubert
Richardson home. During the dinner,
which was a sumptuous affair, a pro
gram was given. It was one of the
festivities of the evening.
The program began with an ingen
ious and clever trick which was car
ried out so realistically and effecti
vely that even the shrewd and dis
cerning business men were deluded
for a time. All who witnessed the
incriminating circumstances, which
Mrs. Glyde Matthie unfolded in true

ber the ruse, the big surprise of the

Mali Representative Hears Noted
Artist At Rotary Club Meeting
A representative of the Mail had
i the good fortune to attend a meeting
iof the Phoenix Rotary club on last
Tuesday', at which Sir Harry Lauder,
was the speaker of the day. His
plain-spoken and to the point, mes
sage carried so much of real worti
to all those who were fortunate
enough to hear him that we feel
compelled to pass on some of the
things he said to our friends-.
Sir Harry, himself a Rotarian,
preached the gospel of world peace,
taking Rotary as a background on
which to paint a picture of content
for the brotherhood of man.
Four years ago Sir Harry Lauder
was in Phoenix and at that time he
was the guest of the Phoenix Rotary
club. Since then he has traveled to
the four corners of the world and
came in contact with men in all
walks of life. It has been his aim.
Sir Harry stated to carry his
message to Rotary clubs wher
ever he goes, and through Rotary
help bring about a better understand
ing between men. His talk was in
terspersed with bits of sparkling wit
and humor, original to Lauder, and
always new to his hearers.
New Zealand and Australia both
have Rotary now. Sir Harry said,
and they have taken to the spirit of
Rotary in a manner that would be
worthy of comment in older organi
Sir Harry sang a song, told several
anecdotes, talked on world peace and
kept a line of humor running through
his talk which was serious and ap
pealing. He advised Rotarians to
speak plainly to one another; avoid
trying to keep up with the pace set
by the other fellow and keep a balan
ce in the bank.
Monday would have been the birth
day of Lauder’s son who was killed
in the World war and Lauder was
deeply affected by mention of a sub
ject that has added more years to Sir
Harry than the space of time. The
loss of his son formed a basis for
Lauder’s appeal for a world brother
hood. “God, work and a kindly neigh
bor over the garden wall,” Sir Harry
said, “mean peace and content. And
we should extend our own friendship
across the sea where it is needed,
more than ever before.”
“I may not be able to forget what
happened in that terrible war,” he
declared, “but I am willing to for
give—that nations will come together
in the brotherhood of man. Philoso
j phers and artists keep telling the
' truth to the world, and the world
j doesn’t seem to believe them, or at
| least to care, and keeps going on,
and on.
“Rotary is the best and grandest
social organization in the world.
When men can come for a few min
utes and eat, and chat, and smoke,
they breed content and brotherhood.
It is that universal brotherhood the
world needs today. We need new
spirit. Each spring God makes every
thing new and perfect, and it is time
for us to change.
“We must change the political at
mosphere as we change the pictures
on the wall. A new road was opened
in 1914, paved by the best bone and
I blood in the world. They made that
! great sacrifice that man might be
' friendly with one another.
| We must conform to the relations
of a happy domestic atmosphere; we
| must get in line with one another.
The times we are living in today
call for that which materialists can
not conceive, or even think of.
“I do not know anything about
reparations or politics: I know only
there was a war and the suffering
and anguish that followed. And if
some plan is not formulated success
fully we will have another war that
may be even more costly than the
other one. We must sound the trum
pet of the brotherhood of man. That’s
what Rotary stands for. I know not
whether the league of nations is right
or wrong; but we must have under
standing, call it what you will. Sub
stitute vision for vanity and sagacity
for suspicion and try to live content
with our fellow man.”
