Don’t wear a tight vest for we wont pay any tailoring bills. Two New Faculty Member On last Thursday the eleventh two new members of the faculty appeared. They caused no little ex citement around the school. Mr. Elgin and Mr. Liljedahl had quite a time surpressing the eager ques tions and exclamations concerning the new arrivals. We are sure that Amy Lov Liljedahl and Dowd El gin are going to live a happy life with their new companions, and we wish them the best of health and joy. Debate The annual try-out for debate was held Monday. The three con testants, Irby Mae Richardson, Daisy McGregor and John Mahon, were in some suspense while they were waiting for the decisions of the three judges, Mr. Dewey Mc- Cauley, Mr. Chester La Prade and Rev. William Hessell. The two victors, Irby Mae and Daisy, in company with Mr. Elgin will make a trip to Clarkdale next Tuesday. They are taking the negative side of the questions, “Resolved that a Private Corporation be Granted a Franchise to Build and Operate a Power Dam on the Colorado River at a Suitable Point within the State of Arizona.” Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Elgin have been blessed in the past week with a ten pound son as well as having been the victims of the flu. Progress is being made in the glee club class in practicing for the Pinafore and Minstrel to be given in the near future. Mr. Lee, their manager, started out last Tuesday by getting all the minstrel members to meet and start prac ticing. They will practice every evening from now on, at 8 o’clock. Mr. and Mrs. Liljedahl are the proud parents of a girl, born Feb ruary 11, 1926. Mrs. J. R. Tweed substituted for Mr. T. E. Elgin during the week he was absent from school. Mr. G. H.

Lawrence Stanley has dropped his work at the high school. Tea For Mothers and High School Teachers The girls of home economics class 1, entertained their mothers and the high school teachers with a Valentine luncheon Friday after noon, February 12. Most of the mothers and all the teachers were present. Cocoa, tea, heart-shaped cookies and candy were served by the freshman girls. Clara Williams and Helen Van Etta served tea. The decorations were red hearts, red candles and a basket of red sweet peas. The time was spent in visiting looking at the garments the girls had made and listening to music. Round Talley Double-Header Here Next Wednesday, February 24th, the boys and girls of Round Valley or Eager, will journey to Winslow to see if they can run up the larger score against the Winslow town. The Round Valley girls got the cup at the tournment last year. These games will be the next to the last games here this season. Our last double-header will be on March 5, when Flagstaff teams re turn the games of January 15th. On February 26 both of Winslow teams will play their second games of the 1926 season with Holbrook at Holbrook. Winslow Defeated Twice Last Friday Evening After bringing down two victories from Clarkdale and Holbrook, the Winslow girls lost to Gallup last Friday evening. At the end of the first half the score was 5 to 5. Breeden made three of Winslows, while Virginia Phillips had made two free throws. During the third quarter, Gallup scored five more points and Winslow r two by Breed en. The Winslow girls played bet ter the last quarter and held Gal lup to a five to four score. Van Atta of Winslow, made two two point baskets. The final score wms 1 sto 11 in favor of the faster team THE WINSLOW MAIL of the two. In spite of the fact that the game was by no means errorless, as both teams fumbled the ball and messed lots of baskets, it was fast and interesting from start to finish. Everyone remained for the Pres cott-Winslow boys’ game, which fol lowed immediately. Winslow was on its toes and played good basket ball from start to finish. At the end of the first half Prescott led the 14 to 12 score. -—. a —- Yuma Chamber Fights Bridge At Ehrenburg Yuma Chamber of Commerce has gone on record as opposed to granting of a permit by the board of supervisors of Yuma county for the construction of toll bridge across the Colorado river at or near ERrenburg and are having peti tions circulated directed to the Board of Supervisors requesting that body not to grant permit for the construction of toll bridge.

ENGINEER BOARD SUGGESTED FOR COLORADO RIVER PRESCOTT—Suggestion that a commission of engineers be named who would forget state boundaries in the solution of the Colorado riv er problem was made by Dr. H. A. Widstoe, president of the Utah Ag ricultural college, in an address here last week. Dr. Widstoe de clared that the seven basin states, bounded by artificial lines and kept from recognizing their economic unity by politicians, are quarreling over an insignificant issue as to the apportionment of the benefits to be derived from the Colorado river, which, he said, had enough re sources to “do all the work we want it to do.” Dr. Widstoe said that a commis sion of engineers forgetting state lines, should consider the “great basin” of the Salt Lake and the greater basin of the Colorado river as parts of a tremendous em pire and work out a program of de velopment that could be achieved over a period of from 50 to 150 years. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1926 Notice! Beginning March Ist, all accounts due me must be settled in full each pay day. This is necessary that I may pay my bills. CHAS. DAZE.
