The main event of the evening however, will be the presentation of a Past Command er’s emblem to Joseph Lieberman. Department Vice Commander Val de Camp of Jerome, will make the presentation. Arrangements have been almost completed for the May Day dance. This dance is to be given for the benefit of the Winslow Hospital fund, under the auspices of the Legion. The Hospital committee realizes that it will be necessary to have some money to carry on the work of obtaining a hospital for Winslow, therefore they have arranged for this dance to start the fund. The dance is to be given at the Arcadia Hall and music will be furnished by the Sociable Serenad es. Combining the exceptionably good music which these boys will give, the first-rate floor, and the fact that the first of May falls on a Saturday, everyone is bound to have a good time. VWVSA/WWVAAA/WyVS/V/Nrf COUNCIL TALKS NEW CHARTER AT FRIDAY MEETING (Continued from Page 1) The advantages of new fire equip ment, a high type of automotive en gine generating its own water pressure by means of a powerful pump contained in the car’s motor, and hence not dependent upon pressure in the mains, was discus sed, but it was felt that the cost was prohibitive, although the pro tection would be much greater. The council decided that Winslow will be represented at two conven tions in the state in the next few months, and gas plant manager Bert Steinert will be sent to at tend the Western Gas Makers as sociation meet at Tucson on the 16th and 17th of April, and fire chief George Jackson will go to Prescott to attend the meeting of the Arizona Firemen’s association June 10th, 11th and 12th. The proposition for extending Second street through to the high way on the east was declared off, a letter from J. D. McCully, Santa Fe superintendent, carrying the news that it would be impossible for the railroad to allow the neces sary easment through its property at this time. An ordinance amending the orig inal ordinance pertaining to side walks was approved and will be put in effect after publication. The new ordinance, if enforced will mean a tremendous improvement to W’inslow. Under its provisions, all persons owning real property with in the corporate limits of Winslow will be requested to construct and keep in repair, cement sidewalks, and anyone not obeying the ordin ance, within 30 days of being no tified to do so by the supervisor of streets, will find the city hav ing the work done, and a lien tak en by the city against the party’s property in the amount of the ce ment contractor’s bill. The other ordinance passed by the council, extending the fire lim its of the town, will be found on another page of The Mail. Following Tuesday’s meeting, the council recessed to meet again Thursday, following the mass meet ing bearing on the proposed new charter.

April-9-16-23 THE WINSLOW MAIL The Legion’s flagpole for the cemetery is now completed and it will be set up in a few days. This will now present a very attractive appearance with the row of locust trees, the pedestal with the Legion emblem cast in one side, and the flag pole. The hospital committee has an nounced that they have almost com pleted arrangements for a May day dance to be given at the Arcadia Hall on the first day of May. This will be strictly a benefit affair; the proceeds to be used as a fund to carry on the work of getting a hos pital for Winslow. A number of special features are being arranged for. All ex-service men are again cautioned that the time for re-in stating their government insurance is rapidly drawing to a close. This insurance is cheaper than any that the former service man will ever be able to obtain again, therefore he should take advantage of this last opportunity. TICKET SALES FOR CHAUTAUQUA ARE LAGGING (Continued from Page One.) Besides the regular programs, the Junior Chautauqua is to be a fea ture during the five days Chautau qua is here, it is pointed out and there should not be a child in Winslow who should not be in cluded in the Junior activities. A program never unequalled in this southwestern circuit is offer ed, according to Chautauqua repre sentatives here to help the local committee, and the appeal to help put Chautauqua over this year is based on the merits of the program offered and for no other reason. The committee, realizing as do Place! ? It’s an important decision—the one of J mfr I * building a home. And the most vital ne- #sr cessity at such a time is the selection of the CJ ■ - best available site for that home. People who are wise in ways of investment in real estate are quick to appreciate the fact that Sweeney Heights Addition is in a class by itself... No other subdivision offers such a combination of careful restrictions, nearness to schools, sidewalks, water, lights, street lights, gas, lawns, wide graded streets, and excellent drainage. One tour of investigation will convince you of the many advantages awaiting the investor in this property. $450.00 buys a lot 50x142 feet. $25.00 down and the balance as low as $15.00. J. L. SWEENEY OWNER CONGRESS GETS BOULDER DAM’S FINANCE PLANS WASHINGTON—A plan for fi nancing the Boulder Canyon pro ject on the Colorado river was sub mitted to congress by.the treasury department. It would create a $125,000,000 fund for construction, into which revenue received for power, flood protection and irriga tion would be turned. The treasury program was out lined in a letter sent to Chairman Smith of the House immigration committee by Acting Secretary W T inston. It was offered as a sub stitute for the financing plan em bodied in the Johnson-Swing bill. Net earnings, the treasury held, the Chautauqua representatives that last year’s program was not what it should have been, has been promised that this year’s program is the best they have on the circuit A glance at the program, which has been broadcast about Winslow during the past week will show that some of the highest talent available is being offered, includ ing the Murriel Poor Duo, with their organ chimes, Dr. E. J. Pow ell, noted lecturer, and The Ve netian Strollers with their accor deon melodies and songs. Then there is Sunshine Dietrick in his character readings, but the special attraction of Lucille Ell more and company in “Stepping Stones,” now showing on Broadway, is one of the main features offer ing a real high class play that could not be available for Winslow were it not for Chautauqua. The DeKalb players in the play “Across the Street” is said to be almost equal to “Stepping Stones” in entertaining features. On the last day, Wednesday the 14th, the children will have their inning in their Junior Town play-ground fes tival, while the Scott-Harper com pany will entertain on both after noon and evening programs. The local Chautauqua committee of guarantors is confident that they will put over Chautauqua if their season ticket sales come up to ex pectations, even though up to this time they have been disappointed and in the final drive today and to morrow morning they hope to go over the top, if the response from the public is what they hope for. should be used for general debt re duction instead of being applied to the retirement of special bonds, as proposed in the Johnson-Swing measure. “The treasury,” Mr. Winston pointed out, “is given com plete flexibility in handling the fi nancing by the United States of the cost of the project.” The previous plan, embodying an issue of bonds, w r as declared by Secretary Mellon to be impractic able. and he was asked by the con gressional committee to supply an other proposal for financing the project. It has been pointed out that, in submitting the plan, the treasury department does not en dorse the Swing-Johnson measure, or any other plan for developing the Colorado river. The submis sion of the plan was in compliance with a desire of the bill’s sponsors, and not an expression of the de partment in regard to the river question. ADDITIONAL TOOTS The rip track baseball team for the coming season promises to be a good fast aggregation. They have some pretty fine material which is put thru a “strainer” every evening on the roundhouse ball diamond. “Practice makes perfect” is their motto. Being entirely made up of Indians, the nine will be rechristened the “Red skins”, which name they carried to the close of last year with a final average of .750. A business meeting was held Wednesday and Earnest Yasteya was elected manager while Fi*ank Analla was chosen as team captain. Games with Gallup, Prescott and Needles are in sight so far and the public can expect some good entertain ment. Let’s Go! Play ball! Another “Gold Rush” has been released in California. They do say it isn’t a moving picture this time but a real “back to the days of ’49” affair. Some L. A. real estate salesman must have wand ered of the “beaten path” but carried his profession with him. Can’t we arrange for some kind of a rush into Arizona? How about a “Bullrush ? That ought to make things fly. Howsis? A man on the job is worth two in the hospital. You can’t crank safety—lt’s a self starter. Last minute news. Guess Frank Holloway, linotypical wizard of The Mail will sure rave about this item FRIDAY, APRIL 9,1926 being so late, but if I left out the fact that the W. D. H. Apprentice Club is putting on their first dance for proposed convention at Winslow in 1928 funds, I would stand a darn good chance of being “scalp ed” by the apprentice. Come to the Green Mill this evening folks an denjoy a real dance. Prof. Art Schaar and his gang of “Foot warmers” will furnish good, snap py sincopation as is their “rep.” • o ■ * + + + + + + + + * + 4141414. $ The Rain Storm t 4- 4* * By JACK O’BRIEN 4* 4>*4> + 4>4>4>4>4>4>4> + 4> + 4> From forest, hill, from many a blighted plain Where demon drought had touch ed with withering hand All nature joins in thanks for Heaven-sent rain While new-born joyous streams, flow through the land.
