Toots From The Round House By Charles Erickson v ___ J “DAMIT!”—That doesn’t sound like a very good start at any col umnist, but in this case I mean it. There’s a cause for everything so the reason for such an “outbreak” is that the splendid safety record maintained so far this year at the roundhouse came to an end at ex actly 9:30 p. m„ April 6th. when our second trick locomotive car penter, R. Hatch ,was so unfor tunate as to almost sever a finger on the “rip” saw. We are all very sorry for Mr. Hatch, who will un doubtedly lose considerable time. Oh well, “there is an end to all things” I believe some wise guy hath said, and it was only natural that something should go amiss during the foolish month of April. The “Black Box” bulletin board has surely been a big attraction the past week on account of many jobs being up for “bid.” Reference is made to jobs vacated by men out of service account reduction of forces. T. Ikagami having returned from his Los Angeles vacational trip of two weeks, we have A1 Sandoval back on hi, regular daylight shift. H. I. Nomoto, S. R. Nomoto and H. Mori also came back with Ikamami and report they all had a dandy “pleasure rest.” A very bad attack of lumbago made it necessary for truckman John Medidi to call upon Dr. Brown for treatment. He was absent three days as was Tony Alonzo. The lat ter because of a sore eye. The attention of shopmen is call ed to a column in The Mail each week under the heading of “Hot Shots.” It is good reading folks and this “Bolshevik Bill” author is none other than our former power plant engineer, W. B. Camp. Boiler inspector, L. S. Baker, is making his tour over the Albu querque division at present during which time it is his duty to inspect all stationary boilers along the line and make repairs if need be. Returning from his home in La guna, New Mexico, where he and his family have spent the past fif teen days, Juan Corrillo informs us that that part of the country has had some very heavy rains which caused the people to rejoice and expect good crops. On last Tuesday afternoon, Parke Boyer’s air room was occupied by Frank E. Edwards, representative of the Ohio Injector company, w'ho demonstrated injectors, lubricators and flange oilers to a crowd of sup ervisors. It was quite instructive and next morning Mr. Edwards favored the local foremen with a very interesting talk on the same subjects. “Outside” supervisors who were also present at either one of the* meeting were: H. S. Wall, mechanical superintendent THE WINSLOW MAIL from Los Angeles; A1 Crew, gener al road foreman of engines; P. P. Curto, division foreman at Gallup; A. D. Griffith, division foreman at Williams; F. H. Truxler, division foreman at Ashfork; P. J. Maloney W. G. Cooper and Lee Pearson, road foremen; Chas. Raitt and T. Leonard, division and general fore man at Prescott; and J. H. Haynie, fuel supervisor. Quite a laugh was enjoyed at the Wednesday session when Mr. Edwards endeavored to explain a fuel report of 1917 and 1918 to the Messers Hitchcock and Crew. The joke was on him when he learned that these two gentle men had compiled that report. C. E. Hurst, a car carpenter, has tendered his resignation, having decided that he can do better “somew r here else.” % HIGH SCHOOL ' NEWS NOTES School Picnic Friday was a day of fun for Winslow Hi. The roll was called at nine o’clock and while we were all assembled in the study hall, Mrs. Hansen gave a short talk on trees. Miss Bloodgood also gave a talk. Afterwards the different classes went out and each planted a tree. About ten o’clock seventeen cars left the school for Clear Creek Can yon. Mr. Lee was supposed to lead the procession and Mr. Liljedahi to bring up the rear. Mr. Madden had the eats in his car. About one o’clock somebody said, “Let’s eat,” and no one left the hot dogs until they were all gone. The Home Economics classes I. and 11. prepared the food and served it cafeteria style. There were about eighty-five peo ple at the picnic including pupils, teachers, drivers, and a few friends. After the lunch a bunch of teachers and pupils went over to some cliff dwellings. They had to go up and down canyons in order to reach them, but it was well worth the walk. When they arrived at the scene they had to be satisfied to view them from across the cayon as there was quite a stream of wa ter. Other of the students climbed the mountain, played baseball and other things. It was about three o’clock when the cars started home. Everyone reported having a good time. Here’s hoping that next year’s picnic* will be as successful as this one was. • Chautauqua The Cadmeon Chautauqua is scheduled for April tenth to four teenth. There is talent from all over the country. Miss Elmore, an excellent comedian, has been in Broadway successes. The Venetian Strollers from sunny Italy, give us a touch of European music.
