WINSLOW, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 6,1926 RACING AVIATORS STOP HERE ON WAY TO DENVER, COLO. Delayed by a fog that forced their plane to land near Los An geles shortly after they had left San Diego Friday morning, A. J. Hufford, Vance Breese and J. B. Alexander arrived in Winslow at 7:40 P. M. Friday, several hours after their scheduled time. Their machine, a monoplane, is entered in a race against time between the Southern California city and Den ver, competing against home thirty other entries. All three of the aviators are well-known in their craft. Breese, who is piloting the plane, is a pio neer in aeronautics; Hufford is employed by the Wright corpora tion, the founders of which were originators of heavier-than-air fly ing machines, with the title of field service engineer in charge of mo tors, while Alexander is sales man ager for the Ryan Aircraft com pany. Mr. Hufford has recently return ed from five months spent in the arctic with the Detroit expedition, headed by Captain Wilkins, an Aus tralian who became internationally known by his extraordinary valor in the British air force in the World War. The Wilkins forces have been stationed at Fairbanks, Alaska, and for some time attempt ed to establish a base at Point Bar row, but owing to the rough nature of the country were unable to land any sufficient supply of gasoline to make a start for the pole from the point advisable. Further activities of Hufford in clude acting as cameraman for Pathe News, and the pictures of the wreck of Roald Amundsen’s ship, the “Norge,” were taken by him. These views are being shown in theaters throughout the country. Members of the city’s aviation committee, with city clerk C. L. Murphy, entertained the air men, who stopped here overnight, leav ing early Saturday morning. An interesting collection of aerial pho tographs were shown the commit tee by Hufford, including views of the midnight sun of the Yukon, and “stills” of the wreck of the “Norge.” Saturday morning at 9 o’clock two more aviators, C. T. Alexander and R. B. Perry, who are also en tered in the race from San Diego to Denver, landed in Winslow. They were flying an Alexander plane, manufactured in Denver, a small machine designed for commercial and private use. Perry and Alexander left Amboy, California, at 5:00 A. M. Saturday and expected to reach Trindad, Col orado by nightfall. o Arizona Is to Get Sixty Yellowstone Elk, Says Warden PHOENIX —Arizona will receive a herd of 60 elk from the Yellow stone National park this fall, D. E. Pettis, state game warden, an nounced this week, following re ceipt of a letter from Arno B. Cammerrer, acting director of the national park service. The elk will be placed in the Blue Ridge game preserve south of Springerville, Pettis said. Arizona is to pay for the cost of trapping and transporting them to Gardiner, Wyo., the nearest shipping point, and the cost of freight on the car load of elk from Gardiner to the Arizona destination point, Pettis explained. Winslow Receives German Machine Gun From Governor Due to prompt action on the part of the Commercial Club and back ing by C. G. Payne, chairman of the Navajo County Board of Super visors, and the local post of the American Legion, Winslow last week was made the recipient of a German machine gun, presented to Navajo county by Gov. Geo. W. P. Hunt. The gun will be mounted temporarily in the City Hall, and is intended to form a nucleus for a small museum of war relics to be gathered by the Commercial Club and the Legion and later present ed to the city. As soon as it was learned that the governor had a supply of ma chine guns to be given to each county the Commercial Club wrote to the state house, requesting that the governor give Winslow the consideration due it as the ctiy of largest population and the financial center of Navajo county. The Le gion post and Payne followed this letter with other apepals, and the result was that the gun arrived here Saturday morning, the Gov ernor presenting it to the city Sat urday night. The War Department at Wash ington is making shipment of these guns and larger pieces of arma ment captured in the World War to all states, to serve as mementoes of the conflict. U. S. To File Suit Against Santa Fe For Peach Springs PHOENIX After two years of investigation, the United States government has decided it became known here this week, to bring suit against the Santa Fe system for possession of Peach Springs, Ariz., and the lands surrounding the springs, which adjoin the Hualpai Indian reservation in Mojave and Coconino counties. In a recent letter to John B. Wright, United States attorney at Tucson, E. M. Parmenter, assistant attorney general, wrote in part; “It seems to this department that the time for bringing this suit has nearly arrived and that it might be pushed from this time on. The rail way attorneys evidently desire de lay, but the bringing and pushing of the suit should do more toward bringing about an equitable settle ment than any amount of confer ences and delays. We thus suggest that the best way to get results is to bring the suit as soon as possi ble and push it from the start.” For nearly 40 years, or ever since the Santa Fe main line was built across Arizona, the railroad has piped water from Peach Springs to a tank station and claims title un der a deed said to have been ac quired from Decker and Crozier, who apparently were squatters on the lands later reserved for the In dians. The government it is claim ed has witnesses who will testify that the persons from whom the railroad claims to have purchased the land never lived on it and never acquired title to it. On one hand the water is highly valuable to the railroad and on the other the Indians set great senti mental store by the springs, which are surrounded by many relics of former Hualpai occupancy. A mass of interesting historical matter concerning pioneer days will come into evidence when the suit to quiet title is instituted. HAYDEN IS ENDORSED BY UNIONS • The divisions and lodges of the transportation brotherhoods in Ar izona have received a circular let ter from the four vice presidents of the “Big Four - ’ who are assign ed to the positions of national leg islative representatives for their re spective organizations at Washing ton, D. C., and who keep a vigi lant eye on all legislation affecting their members in which Carl Hay den is strongly endorsed in un measured terms as the candidate for the senate from Arizona, and all union men are urged to vote and have their families and friends vote for Mr. Hayden, who under the tabulation kept by organized labor, is rated as 100 per cent on all matters affecting labor or in which labor is interested from the viewpoint of a good citizen. In all probability there will be introduced at the next session of congress a national car limit law which is the only logical solution of the troublesome question, as Arizona is marooned at present be tween two states having practical ly no limit as to the number of cars in freight or passenger trains. At Yuma, trains of 130 cars are of frequent occurrence coming in from California and this same train will make two trains under the Arizona law, or nearly so, our law permitting freight trains of 70 OPENING OP ROAD UP PEAKS TO ADD SCENES OF BEAUTY A road improvement that has been eagerly awaited for months by tourists to the scenic wonder land of Northern Arizona will be dedicated Sunday, August 15th at Flagstaff, when the boulevard to the 11,300 foot level of San Fran cisco Peaks is formally opened. The Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce has broadcast an invitation over the state, and many are expected to attend the celebration. On that day the road will be thrown open to cars the entire day, and parking space for a large num ber of cars will be available at the present end of the road. At this point entertainment will be fur nished for visitors during the after noon. The scenic vistas that this “road to the sky” will open will add one more ling in the vast chain of scenic marvels that include the Grand Canyon, Oak Creek Canyon, the Painted Desert and other un spoiled natural sights that make this section famous the world over. From this winding path over the peaks may be obtained views to the south, east, and west over al most illimitable tracts of pictur BEAUTY Gives CONFIDENCE To crown faultless attire, to complete the picture of dainty loveliness, there must be a coif feur that will give you a certainty of perfection, poise, confidence.

IRENE HART Did Your Roof Leak In Last Week’s Rain? Only a good roof could have withstood the rainstorms here last week. Dozens of home-owners lost dozens of dol lars —in plaster cracked, in furniture-finish spoil ed, in appearance of the home’s interior. (And that is money last—you’ll see when you try to sell your home). Money spent on roofing is a wise investment —rain insurance, assuring you added life to your home, good looks added to its exterior, the good looks of the interior safe from stain and spots.

Mountains covered with millions of acres of valuable timber, broad and fertile valleys in which agriculture flourishes, and grazing domains as great in extent as a small European principality will greet the eye of a motorist on the new boulevard. Those desiring to continue on to the top of the peaks can easily hike to the top in an hour, where an even finer view can be had. It is said that on a clear day an observ er can see five states and one for eign country, the latter being, of course. Old Mexico. Arizona, Colo rado, California, New Mexico and Utah are the states to be seen. o COTTON GROWERS TO IMPORT 1500 PICKERS PHOENIX The Arizona Cotton Growers’ association will import 1500 Spanish Porto Rican farm la borers into the Salt River Valley during September and October to aid in the picking of the 1926 cot ton crop, according to a decision reached by directors of the associa tion.
