The Union’s safety campaign
was inaugurated some months ago
when investigation showed that the
automobile accident situation was
becoming acute. The Union offi
cials went on the premise that
automobile drivers were not, as a
general rule, deliberately careless,
but rather were victims of the urge
for greater speed, which is inher
ent in so many motorists.
It was felt that if some means
could be evolved which would bring
home to the careless motorist the
folly of his actions, a halt would
be called to the growing total of
automobile accidents. The present
campaign which provided for the
utilization of 1,500 posters on the
Pacific Coast typifying motoring sit
uations in which careful driving is
necessary and which carry a direct
and positive appeal to observe safe
driving practices was therefore in

Flag Ready To Launch
Campaign For Hotel
Indications are that in June,
ground will be broken for Flag
staff’s big new hotel, in which case
it will be enclosed before winter
and completed before the beginning
of the 1927 tourist season.
Th<* local executive committee of
more than 20 Flagstaff business
and professional men are having
frequent conferences with Mr.
Webster of Harrisburg, Pa., repre
senting the Hockenberry hotel peo
ple. He is here to direct the finan
cial drive for the hotel and has
opened campaign headquarters in
the C. A. Clark & Co. store build
ing on Leroux street.
Architects’ plans are expected
here this week from the H. L.
Stevens Co., of San Francisco, who
have built more than 60 hotels in
this country.
Many preliminary details have
been settled.
The hotel will cost in the neigh
borhood of $250,000.
It will be located on the five
north and south lots on the north
east corner of San Francisco street
and Aspen avenue. The north end
of the westerly lots in this group
is covered by the postoffice build
ing and the owners are the Riordan
and Babbitt interests, the former
being sole owner of the unimprov
ed southern parts of the lots. The
eastermost lot is owned by The
Coconino Sun and occupied by its
building.—Coconino Sun.
New Way To
Wash Clothes
L. J. Bennett of the Arizona Elec
tric company, is showing how
clothes are washed by water action
only, in the latest One Minute
Washer. Water is swept through
and through the soiled clothes by
centrifugal force and dirt is
thoroughly removed from the
meshes of’the fabrics, without even
touching the metal tub. This new
Water Action has many advantages
—principle of which is the fact
that clothes are uninjured no mat
ter how long they are left in the
Washer. Another feature of keen
interest is the washing of a single
handkerchief or stocking by sim
ply throwing it into the tub with
a little soap and water —making
it possible to use the One Minute
daily if desired, to wash out those
few things always done by hand.
Home Demonstrations are being
arranged by Mr. Bennett and no
obligation is attached to arranging
to use this One Minute Washer to
do your washing for a week.
Big Publicity Is Given
Our Pine Forests In A
Leading Lumber Paper
Fifty-five pages of the American
Lumberman, lending lumber indus
try weekly, published in Chicoga,
is "devoted'to the Cady Lumber cor
poration of Flagstaff and McNary,
in the issue of April 10.
The article, in advertising form,
is illustrated with more than a
hundred fine half-tone views of
mill and other company buildings
and milling and lumbering opera
tions, as well as woods scenes and
Flagstaff and other views.
Our fine Arizona pine must be
getting a tremendous boost in the
markets through this publicity. The
article in speaking of the dry kilns
now being installed at McNary and
which it is understood are also to
be part of the equipment here, says
they will facilitate the sales of the
output on the Atlantic coast and in
foreign countries.
The full page forest illustrations
accompanying the article are re
markable in their clearness of de
tail and the conception they give
of the size and beauty of our na
tive pine trees. —Coconino Sun.
