L. Davie, also an employe of the company. OUR DEAR CHILDREN The teacher was giving a class a lecture on “gravity.” “Now, children,” she said, “it is the law of gravity that keeps us on this earth.” “But, please, teacher,” inquired one small child, “how did we stick on before the law was passed?” Mother: “Billy, why are you making your little brother cry?” Billy: “I’m not. He’s dug a hole and he’s crying because he can’t bring it into the house.” CORNERED Little Bobbie: “Mother, have I been a good boy lately?" Mother: “Yes, dear, a very good boy.” “And do you trust me, Bobbie mother?” Mother: “Why, of course, moth er trusts you, son.” Bobbie: “Then why do you go on hiding the jam?” Give your printing to The Mail.

The little house in which the shop time keepers and gang foremen have their respec tive offices was moved out of the roundhouse proper and is now lo cated just in front of the machine shop. The building is known as the “dog house” but, being sur rounded by water w r hen it rains, it should be rechristened “Noah’s Ark.” The move was occasioned on account of the splendid pro gress made by contractor C. H. Jone’s force of “roundhouse remod elers” so “we should worry about a little inconvenience. Let the good work go on. Last Monday the W. D. H. ap prentice club held a special ses sion for election of officers, and other business. Those to take of ficial seats for the forthcoming term are: M. T. Mcßride, presi dent. This shows Teds popularity in as much as he is the youngest machinist scholar. R. Wellman, vice president; H. B. Thornton, secretary; H. W. Peterson, treasur er; Joe Harl, custodian; W. W. Baker, sergeant at arms and Gen eral Foreman James Kiely, was unanimously voted for sponsor. Much progress was made during the past term and the retiring of ficers, of whom H. W. Peterson was the president, are extended a hear ty vote of appreciation. We had with us the first three of this week, Mr. Clyde E. Saylor, popular representative of the Franklin Railway Supply com pany. His call was a very pleas ant one in as much as it was a sort of a “re-union.” Shorty used to visit us quite regularly when the first Franklin “Boosters” were be ing introduced on our 3800 class engines, about two years ago. Mr. J. E. Bayles, official clock inspector and regulator on the San ta Fe system and a likeable eld erly gentleman, spent this week at the shops, giving all our clocks a good “going over.” His headquar ters are in Topeka. Accompanied by his wife our chief stationary engineer, W. G. Camp, paid his brother, W. B. Camp a visit in Humbolt, Arizona, on last Saturday and Sunday. Af ter telling us that Bernard, who was formerly an engineer in the local power plant, likes his new location, W. G. hastened to declare that his Oldsmobile coach is “some gas wagon” and that he didn’t have to shift gears the entire distance of a 190 miles to Humbolt. Roundhouse foreman E. A. Kuhn, took a railroad ride down through his old haunts of Clovis and Por tales, New Mexico, during his monthly “two days” off and shook hands with many of his old bud dies. Among those receiving a requisi tion for medical treatment the past week were: F. F. Villaescusa, Car mel G. Salazar, F, I. Gard ner and Douglas Wade. The lat ter had to get Doc Hathaway to stop a toothache after the tooth had been extracted. All of these men are back at work. After losing several days time, Carlos Marquez is back on the job feeling O. K. again. J. R. Chaves is likewise able to “punch the clock” after an illness of a couple of weeks. Joe Harl and Larry Searle took a couple long auto rides. They do say the boys were headed in the direction of Snowflake. “Adios Charlie, be sure to tell the ol’ gang hello for me.” Thus spake Charles Hitchcock as he and ye columnist parted on 7th at Broad way in Los Angeles last Friday af ter the former Winslowite had act ed as “chauffer host” for a couple of hours. The reason for that “broadened smile” worn by P. P. engineer J. B. Camp since last Tuesday is that Mrs. Camp and daughter have re turned after enjoying a three months visit with relatives and old friends in Texas and Oklahoma. “You can’t beat these home cook ed meals” says J. B. Last Wednesday the absentee re port almost went “abeggin’.” There were only five names on it which is the lowest number in the shop history. A one day visit. Don Kuhn, now serving his apprenticeship in San Bernardino back shops, was shak ing hands with his old pals at the roundhouse last Sunday. More pups. But they’re a dif ferent brand this time. Buel Can ady, canine culturist, reports that his thoroughbred German Police dog.' Hopi Maid, is the proud moth er of her first litter of pups. There i are seven of them and on April 14, J 1927, they will be a year old. Garlo, j the “daddy” is also a registered an imal residing in St. Louis, Mo. Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Fertig, Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Kemmis and Cyril Barron, all returned last Monday from San Bernardino, where they took in the very successful third annual ball of the Berdoo appren tices. The coast lines representative of the Hammersmiths, Tom Ellis, paid a short call at the roundhouse Wednesday on association business. The W. D. H. apprentice club had their second “convention funds” dance last evening at the Green Mill. A goodly crowd was there and a lively time had. Every ef fort will be put forth to bring the annual apprentice convention to WTnslow in 1928. Extra! The rip track “Redskins” won their first baseball game last Sunday on the roundhouse diam ond by defeating the Leupp Indian school team. The score was 10 to 8 and the game a good starter for the season. Atta -way to do it. We’re for you boys. Waste a Minute and Save a Life —Common Sense Goes Hand in Hand W r ith Safety.

MOTHER’S TABLE, LOS ANGELES AND APPRENTICE BALL (By CHARLES ERICKSON) When the conductor hollered “Al-1-1 a-bo-ar-r-d-d! ” to the engin eer (which means the same as “gitUap” to a mule, only you don’t have to repeat it so often) on train No. 7, April 15th, Mr. Cyril Barron, the hotsy totsy boy from California, and myself were comfortably oc cupying a seat in the smoking com partment of the lone day coach coupled on the rear end of this crack Santa Fe “fast mail.” As the train speeded westward, Fireman Abney, who was “dead heading” to Seligman, joined us. This proved to be much to our good fortune, as Mr. Abney, having fired over the division for the past two years, naturally know r s practically every foot of ground along .the “right-of-way” and pointed out numerous “land marks” and ex plained many things of the utmost interest to us, including the monu ment erected by the government in honor of General Williams, famous Indian fighter of his day, on a high mountain just west of the town of Williams. After we left Seligman Cy and I curled up in a seat and slept as best we could until we were awakened at Barstow, for 5 o’clock breakfast. Cy “unloaded” at San Bernardino and I went on into that “answer to a bankroel’s prayer” city of Los Angeles. Had no more than just gotten off the train when who should I spy but our old “side kick” Charlie Hitchcock. Was “knocked down” to some of his relatives and after sticking around the station awhile he would have nothing else but that I take a ride. Charlie has the new Buick Sedan which he purchased just before leaving Winslow, and say, that guy surely does drive through the traf fic. I almost pushed out the floor boards trying to help him slow down. Well anyhow, after driving around seein’ the sights, he took me out to Wrigley Field, the new mil lion dollar baseball park, and the home of the Los Angeles “Angels” coast league team. It is certainly one keen bit of construction work and will accomodate thirty thous and fans. Wm. R. Wrigley, Jr., gave this master-piece to the city and dedicated it to the baseball players killed and injured in the World War. Los Angeles is sure great for ad vertising. On one big sign you read: “M. J. B. Coffee —Why? and then on the sign board to the right of it there is a big candy add: “Damfino.” The policemen in L. A. are “more friendly” with everyone these days, especially the voters. They are af ter a raise in pay and want every' one to vote YES on No. 2. The same measure will boost the fire men’s salary. Promising to say “hello” to all his Meteor City friends for him, I bid Charlie adios on that famous corner, 7th at Broadway, and did a little shopping, after which I im mediately headed for mothers’. Gee, it’s a “grand an’ glorious” feelin’ to go home. Believe me, this old Harvey House and restau rant life isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Although I was not home very long, the hours were sure full. The fullest one tvas dinner hour. Oh boy, it was great to shove my feet under “mother’s table’ ’once again and partake of delicious vit als cooked as only “mom” can cook ’em. And then to “top it off” moth er had made one of those “melt in your mouth" kind of strawberry shortcakes. Gosh, I’ve shut my eyes and eaten that cake more than once since returning home. My advice to the girls, for their bene fit next leap year is: “If you land this guy you gotta be a good cook and be able to Charleston.” Speaking of the Charleston re minds me that I endeavored to teach it to “Mom” but she didn’t exactly take it seriously and made some remark about it looking like “St. Vitus dance’ ’to her. Went out in mother’s garden from which she has already had, young onions, lettuce, radishes and so forth. My kid brother, William, who goes to school and also works for that “Don’t Write—Telegraph” Western Union company, took me down town in his “flivver.” Stop ped at 40th and Figuaroa sts. to see my pal, Paul (Bullet) Thornton, but learned he had gone to Wins low for a brief visit. Met my dear friend Mrs. Mar shall, whom I got acquainted with while sojourning in the Santa Fe hospital, the major part of 1922. This lady has, since then, been a regular “second mother” to me. She is not only a very competent trained nurse, but also holds an M. D. certificate and is one of the most brilliant, big hearted and jov ial women it has been my pleasure to meet. Many local Santa Fe em ployes who were in our L. A. hos pital and knew her will say the same. Had refreshments in one of those spiffv “Pig and Whistle” joints and then took a “Los Angeles Street Railway” ride to the depot, where I boarded train No. 18 for San Ber nardino. Was met in that city by my friend E. E. (Cowboy) Holt and after changing in to “Ball Room Clothes” we attended the third an nual apprentice ball. There were Mr. and Mrs. Harry Kemmis, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Fertig, Cy Barron, also present from Wins low, beside yours truly, to give the “natives” a treat and a most de lightful time was enjoyed by the whole of the large crowd accord ing to appearances. So back to Winslow and to work. SYMPATHY “The farmer is entitled to a great deal of sympathy.” “Yep,” answered Farmer Corn tassel, “an’ sympathy’s the one thing he’s entitled to thet he’s al ways sure to get.” THE WINSLOW MAIL WINSLOW WILL OBSERVE MUSIC WEEK MOVEMENT Following the proclamation of Governor Hunt and that of Mayor Fred Gouglas, preparations for the observations of music week. May 2 to 8, inclusive, have been going steadily forward. The movement, of natoinal scope will be devoted to that of musical observance of the higher standard. An organization was formed in Winslow several weeks ago within the Woman’s Club to see that Na tional Music Week is properly ob served here. Mrs. W. L. Martin, chairman of the music committee of the Woman’s Club is planning a program which will include the introduction of a selection from the classics into all jazz orchestra programs. All merchants and busi ness houses have been asked, both through proclamation of Mayor Douglas and by the Woman’s Club, to observe in any way possible this nation-wide movement for appre ciation of good music. All local organizations, led by representatives of the National Music association and a committee from the Woman’s Club headed by Mrs. W. L. Martin, are preparing to make “National Music Week”, May 2nd to Bth, a real musical event in Winslow. In the schools as well, preparations are being made, and Miss Hortense Miller, superintendent of music in grade schools is coaching her young charges in preparation for a Music Memory Contest, which will be closing feature of the week. Another feature will be a recital given at the junior high school by Store Wide Savings-!

Local dance orchestras have been requested to insert a few concert numbers into all their programs, and every organization that has been interviewed is taking an in tense interest in the furthering of an appreciation for good music. The Music Memory Contest has been used for several years in schools of thg nation, and has been instrumental in interesting scores of school children in music. Selections representative of vari ous countries and the styles of different composers are played for and studied by the children, and in the finals are played with out announcement of names. The object is to recognize the selection, name the composer and the country represented by the music. Thirty-five selections have been chosen by Miss Miller for the local contest, with twenty-nine composers represented, all of whom are foreign with the ex ception of McDowell and Herbert, who are the only American com posers on the list. The final contest will also be a feature of National Music Week. No study included in the curri culum of either grade or high schools has so much educational value as the study of music. The reading of music notation requires a greater degree of combined speed and accuracy than is necessary in almost any other vocation. Especially is accuracy of vision necessary in reading instrumental music; in piano music, when two staves must be read; in organ mus ic, when three staves must be in cluded in the line of vision, and in the final stage of score reading, when at least fourteen staves with a notation as complex and difficult as Greek covering the entire page must be visualized at once. Valuable as is the training of the eye in the study of music, the train ing of the ear is of greater value. Experience as a performer on some musical instrument developes keen power of tone discrimination. Music appeals to all normal chil dren and the majority of children are normal. They have the right then to instruction in music, and should be offered the opportunity to learn to play, and the best time to learn is when they are stu dents in the elementary grades. If the schools are to educate, they should educate for an avocation as well as a vocation. A child has as much right to devote some time to a subject which he may enjoy in his leisure time, as he has to devote most of his time to some subject that has only a monetary value. Music also has a monetary val ue. Players in symphony orches tras receive from forty-five to one hundred dollars a week. Thirty to forty-five dollars is an average rate for playing in threatre, case or ho tel orchestra. One hundred dollars a week is a small salary for com petent leaders. And most persons who hold these positions, do other work in the daytime, such as sell ing, clerking, etc. It must be conceded that the school supported by the people is the natural source of all instruc tion and is the one logical place where all study should receive its first impetus and its first inspira tion.

That the fall was magnificient, was the unanimous opinion of the party. A great volume of water was flowing in the river, but mud dy, as the water of the Rio Chi quita Colorado usually is. Any one who cares to see such natural wonders, should tak e advantage of the ni’esent conditions, as, for the greater part of the year ther e is very little water running in the river. And who said that school teach ers cant cook! A lunch fit for the fastidious was spread out on the ground. Fresh fried Ham burgers and coffee, with <3t&ny other good things, were devoured in huge quantities. A number of people from Flag staff were out sightseeing also. Among these were Doris Hender son and Jean Womack. On the return trip, which was made via the Flagstaff road to Winona, thence by the highway to Winslow, a peculiar incident oc cured. A hobo Bull snake coiled its r lf around a spring under one of the cars and rode for a number of miles before it was discovered. The party consisted of the Misses Nell Bloodgood, Vera War ner, Hortense Miller, Isabelle Coe, and Mildred Housten, and Messe*? Boschke, Bill Clark, Ray and Fred Hipkoe.
