Recent rainfall in Navajo county
is matched by reports from other
points in the state, that indicate
the precipitation has been general
all over Arizona. Assuring plenty
of water and improved range con
ditions, the rains have meant much
to the state and to stockmen in
particular. Total rainfall for the
month in Phoenix is 3.22 inches,
more than one-lialf an inch falling
in one night this w r eek. State
streams are reported as swollen by
the rains, and dry w'ashes have
been flowing heavy streams of wa
In Winslow, after the rainstorm
of Tuesday, gutters ran several :
inches deep, and in flat places in ;
the city, especially near the gas :
plant, the water accumulated al-!
most to the proportions of lakes.
Several automobiles were stalled in
the dip by the gas plant, and
more in other dips on the highway
to the east and to the west.
Little damage has been done to
crops by the rainfall. Practically
ail the canteioupe crop in Salt Riv
er Valley has been harvested, which
is considered extremely fortunate,
since melons are quickly spoiled by
too much moisture, and a rain a
few weeks earlier would have
meant the loss of thousands of dol
lars to melon growers.
Rapid rises of rivers caused some
alarm, but no dams have showed
signs of danger. Twelve inches of
water are pouring over the Gilles
pie dam, stopping traffic from
Phoenix to Yuma byway of Gil
lespie. The new Horse Mesa dam
on the Agua Fria river is reported
as safe, also.
A washout that occurred on the
main line of the Santa Fe between
Peach Springs and Hackberry, has
been repaired, although a few
trains ran late this week. West
bound trains arriving at Ashfork
after the washout were held at
Seligman or Ashfork until traffic
was resumed.
Forest fire hazards through
Northern Arizona were materially
lessened as a result of the storms
that swept this part of the state.
Several small blazes that have
been reported in the Coconino and
Prescott national forests within the
past week were said to have been
extinguished by the downpour.
Arizona Society of
So. California to
Hold Annual Picnic
Former Winslowiteg who are
now living on the coast and local
visitors to Los Angeies will have
a chance to gather and exchange
reminiscences at Bixby Park, in
Long Beach, California, when on
August 21st the annual picnic of
the Arizona Society of Southern
California is held. Announcements
have been received this week nam
ing the date and urging all visitors,
former Arizona residents and their
friends to attend.
A program that will appeal to
all Arizonans has been arranged by
a committee, and the all-day out
ing by the sea promises to be a
real western rally.
County registers will be provided
so that old friends will have no
difficulty in locating each other.
These state picnics are a feature
of Southern California, and the
success of Arizona picnics in the
past are indicative of the loyalty
to home ties that lasts through the

the last city in this area to take
such a step, both the United Bank
and Trust company and the First
National Bank of Winslow have an
nounced this t week the establish
ment of a service charge on small

such a charge was contemplated,
and the justice of the plan, which
is intended to reimburse the banks

them in the handling of accounts

has been realized by their clientele
The small charge of 50c will be
made at the end of each month on
all accounts that have at any time
during the month shown a balance
of less than $50.00. It is designed
to help depositors as well as the
banks, since it will be a stimulus
toward keeping a more stable bank
Churches, Sunday schools, lodges

and savings accounts are exempt
from the charge.
A clearing house association is
also planned by these two banks
for the near future.

The possibility of appointng a
paid life guard to protect bathers
at Clear Creek was discussed, but
as the city has no actual lease on
the property .and only furnishes the
bath house as an accommodation
to local people, it was not consid
ered feasible or in the city’s juris
diction to hire such a guard, and
the question was tabled.
City May Get Water Plant
Another possibility of widely dif
ferent aspect was the probable city
ownership of the water system
owned by the Santa Fe which now
serves Winslow. The franchise of
the railroad for furnishing water
expires in February, 1927, and it
is an admitted fact that they would
be glad to turn the system over to
the city or to a private cornoration.
Th« council decided to go as far
into the matter as necessary to get

Sanitary Condition Good.
The report of the sanitarv in
spector stated that the general san
itary condition of Winslow was
very good, that more care is being
taken to keep the alleys clean, and
that there are apparently 80 per
cent fewer flies here than in for
mer years.
I The extension of sewer lines and
gas mains to blocks 1, 2 and 3 of

Flier Thought to
Be Flying With
Girl to Arizona
WICHITA, Kansas Search for
Miss Ollie Taylor, 15-year-old Wi
chita girl, and her purported ab
ductor, Erwin H. Day, who is be
lieved to have fled with her by
airplane, has taken a new turn
with the report that the two are
headed for Arizona.
A reward of $250 has been posted
for Day’s capture by relatives and
friends of the girl.
Day eloped with a 15-year-old
girl and married her three years
ago. They later separated. He does
not have any regular work, but is
declared to have had between S4OO
and S6OO in his possession at the
time of his disappearance.
PHOENIX —• Lannes L. Ferrall,
registerer of the United States land
offices here, announced Monday
that he would vacate the office im
mediately. No further appeal is to
be made to the inner department’s
refusal to issue him a commission,
he said.
Ferrall’s announcement followed
notification from Washington that
the District of Columbia supreme
court had decided against him in
his action to retain his office.
Counsel for Ferrall contended
that inasmuch as he was nominated
by the President and the nomina
tion confirmed by the senate, he,
Ferrall, was legally holding office.

Annual Carnival
of Elks Planned
for September
September will be a bright spot
in amusement annals of Winslow,
for on September 23d, 24th and 25th
the annual Elks Carnival will be
presented .bigger and better than
ever, according to Exalted Ruler A.
L. Thurston.
The announcement was made at
the last regular meeting of the
antlered herd, and the whole mem
bership is working to make the
carnival live up to Thurston’s op
timistic prophecies.
The Bills plan to entertain the
public with the best that can be
obtained in carnivals, featuring a
musical comedy with a complete
change of program each evening,
one of the finest dance floors in
Arizona, a twelve-piece orchestra
for concerts and dancing, with not
a dull minute from 7:30 to 12:30
each night.
The annual carnival has always
been enthusiastically greeted by
the public, and has never been a
disappointment to its patrons, so
naturally the Elks fire anxoius to
surpass their past efforts.

Mr. Ryan picked up a book con
taining maps showing U. S. geo
logical surveys and turning thru
it, showed that the geologists have
mapped great Pennsylvania and
Mississippi limestone areas in this
county, the same geological forma
tions that exist in the big oil bear
ing fields to the east—the same as
in the largest fields in Kansas, Ok
lahoma, and Texas.
“Three months ago people laugh
ed at the belief some had there was
oil in Utah,” said Mr. Ryan. “Well,
they have brought in one of the
biggest producing wells in the
country there. We’ll have wells
like that here.”
Mr. Ryan has been spending some
time in the field looking over the
situation. Ryan, who was going
through this part of the country
several months ago, was so favor
ably impressed with the topography
of the country with indications of
oil that he got off at Flagstaff to
carry on investigations. Much of
the land under consideration is
owned by the Babbitt interests.
It is a well known fact that oil
men and geologists have been fa
vorably impressed with the coun
try and the exploration of the
structure by the big oil concerns
would mean that the field will be
proven within a comparatively
short length of time.
Twelve New Cases

Annual Poineer Days celebration
at Taylor, held last Friday and
Saturday, closed after the dance
Saturday night with the record of
being the most successful celebra
tion ever held in that town. The
two-day program left not a dull
moment from early Friday morning
until late Saturday night.
Friday was rodeo day, with a
complete program of cowboy sports
and competition all day, and was
followed by a dance Friday night.
Reports state that the dances on
both Friday and Saturday night
were so well patronized that loco
motion was difficult. Saturday
started with a ball game between
the Taylor team and a picked team,
a barbecue at 11:00 A. M. followed,
then a foot race betwen Jess Pierce
of Taylor and J. R. McEvoy, of
Holbrook was the feature of the af
ternoon, and the big dance that
night wound up the festivities.
The Whiteriver Indians were
supposed to have opposed Taylor
in the ball game, but they failed to
show, due to insufficient notice.
Six steers and six sheep furnish
ed the main item on the complete
barbecue lunch that was served to

Jess Pierce, who won the foot
race, was the whole committee and
general majordomo of the speed ex
hibition. The race was scheduled
for 1:00 P. M. and was supposed to
include any who desired to enter,
but none of the contestants appear

clared the original race off, and
matched the race with McEvoy.

the race in Snowflake, with Hohn

Although the motion to purchase
a fire truck for Winslow was de
feated by a vote of three to two in
the recessed council meeting Mon
day night, those behind the move
ment believe that the time is com
ing closer when all objections to
such a purchase will be overcome,
and the city will have the fire pro
tection it deserves. Their belief is
based on the fact that no objection
was raised either by the people or
by the Santa Fe to the item for $2,- :
000.00 included in the budget for 1
this purpose. Also a majority of i
the council have unofficially ex- i
pressed themselves as in favor of
buying the fire truck, while some i
believe it should be postponed for
awhile. ,
This matter, which was by far
the most important to come before
the meeting, arose after a letter
from J. D. McCully, division super
intendent of the Santa Fe, had been
read. In the letter, Mr. McCully |
explained why the turning on of i
the railroad’s high pressure pumps
at the roundhouse had been delay
ed at the time of fires which oc
curred here recently.
According to several railroad
employees who have been interest
ed in the matter, a misunderstand
ing of the proper method of com
municating with the roundhouse
lias caused this delay. A device
that connects with the power plant
offices at the roundhouse is lo
cated in the fire department room
at the city hall, and it has been
the understanding of city employ
ees that this call was only to be
used when the assistance of the
railroad fire department was need
ed. Railroad men assert that this
alarm was intended to be a signal
to turn on the pumps.
However, even with the high
pressure on, the stream of water
available for fire-fighting is hardly
sufficient to check a fire of large
proportions, it is pointed out, and
the difference between such pres-

sure and that afforded to a modern
fire engine equipped with a pump
is so great as to afford no compar
The motion to buy the first
truck was made by ex-Mayor Doug
las, and was supported by C. D. An
derson, with Councilman Black and
Evans voting against the proposal.
Mayor A. E. Gillard cast the decid
ing vote against buying the truck.
The opinion of those who opposed
the purchase was that it would be
best to wait until another fire had
occurred, to test once and for all
the efficiency of the regular Santa
Fe high pressure in the mains. It
was pointed out by Mr. Douglas
that such waiting might result in a
really disastrous fire, one that
might in a short time destroy prop
erty 'Whose value would be more
than the cost of the new and mod
ern fire equipment.
Owing to the misunderstanding
concerning the alarm, a new ar
rangement was made between the
city fire department and that at the
roundhouse, whereby the city
partment would answer the six
alarm boxes located inside the city
limits ,and the roundhouse fire de
partment would answer the six
boxes located in or near the shops.
The thirteen alarm, which is box
number 34, is the one located in
the city hall, and which is to be
pulled to notify the roundhouse
that extra pressure is needed. When
this box is rung, the siren at the
roundhouse will blow for one min
ute to warn of fire.
