W. P. Hunt, Governor of Arizona has issued his proclamation desig nating Sunday, April 25th, as a day of prayer; NOW, THEREFORE. I Fred B. Douglas, Mayor of Winslow, do herby designate Sunday, April 25th, as a day of prayer and Thanks giving, and I do urge that all churches and laymen, and members of all civic, fraternal and benevol ent organizations arrange for and conduct community services which all of the people of this community are urged to attend. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the Town of Winslow to be affixed. Done at the City Hall, this 19th day of April, 1926 FRED B. DOUGLAS, Mayor of Winslow ATTEST: C. L. Murphy Town Clerk. April 23 PROCLAMATION Realizing the value of the Nation of the broadening and deepening of the love for music, and knowing that music, being in the air by the combined force of many people, permeates into places, knocking at many doors where it is unknown, and entering where it is welcome, I, Fred B. Douglas, Mayor of the Town of Winslow, do hereby pro claim the week beginning May 2nd and ending May Bth, 1926, as Music Week. The concentration of many mus ical events into a single week has for its purpose the awekening of the whole community to the import ance of music as a factor in its life. The variety, as as the multiplicity of programs makes it possible to reach the people with the message of music in some form and to demonstrate to every indi vidual that at least some type of music appeals to and helps him. The high ideals of Music Week can only be accomplished through the combined efforts of everyone in the community and I therefore re quest and urge that every individ ual, club and organization of Wins low put forth its greatest effort to stimulate the desire for more and better music. FRED B. DOUGLAS, Mayor, Town of Winslow. Apr-16-23-30 CLAIMS ARE LEASED OTMAN—The Tom Reed Gold Mining company recently leased ten full claims in the Tucson district, located approximately seventy miles south of Tucson. The lease is for a period of twenty-five years. THE WINSLOW MAIL RECEIVE BIDS ON SPRINGERVILLE HIGHWAY SOON PHOENIX —Proposals from con tractors for constructing and sur facing five and two-tenths miles of i the Clifton-Springerville National! Forest road in Greenlee county! within the Apache National forest ; will be received by the district en- j gineer of the bureau of public roads | at the Phoenix office, according to an announcement made last week. Although this work will not con nect Clifton and Springerville with a class A highway open all the year around, it will open the great forest in the northern part of Greenlee county, officials say. This is probably the best timber section of the state, but because of the 75- mile haul from the timbered bills to the railroad at Metcalf, little de velopment of the great natural re sources in this section has been made .they state. The bureau recently completed a 17-mile stretch of this highway leading north from Clifton and an other project of approximately five mile stretch now under considera tion is completed. Copper mining is now the prin cipal industry in the section. The forests of great aspen, spruce and yellow pine have not been touched, it is stated. The road from the tim ber section to the mines at Morenci, Clifton and Metcalf will be down a grade, and although the haul will be long, the down grade will great ly facilitate the moving of the tim i her to the mines, where much of :it will be used. Although plans | have been made on several occas ions to locate a lumber mill in this district, no actual construction of 1 a mill has been started. The road is at present rough and at times impassible on account of snow and heavy rains, but with the completion of the proposed work, it will become an important north and south highway for the state. Part of the country to be opened with the completion of the road is an excellent farming locality well suit ed to the growing of potatoes, veg etables and grain. Farmers in this district will be able to find markets for their produce and crops when the road is finished. The road traverses the beautiful White Mountains and will carry a great number of summer tourists into a wild and rough vacation land. Trout fishing is said to be plentiful in the clear mountain streams and game abundant. o GAME HEAD PROPOSES NEAV STATE PARK SITE PHOENlX—Creation of a new state park near Hole-in-the-Rock in Papago Park to be built around a proposed state bass hatchery and natural zoo looms as a probability as the result of the approval given by engineers to details proposed by State the Game Warden.
