APPEAL MADE TO CIVIC PRIDE IN THE BEAUTIFICATION OF WINSLOW STREETS Through the appeal made to the children of school age, urging of elders to assist and publicity stor ies in the press, the tree commit tee of the Winslow Woman’s club have worked hard and long during the past year to interest local resi dents in civic pride and in beauti fying the home city. Situated as Winslow is, the urge for tree planting and other foliage beautification cannot be stressed too strenuously, and with this fact facing them, and the results of the past year in the little tree planting that has been done, as an example and incentive for “The City Beau tiful” campaign, the committee went about their work. Looking over their records, and checking up on ther iaccomplishments, the chairman and her assistants admit with deep regret that the drive was almost a failure. With the contemplated campaign for the beautifying of Winslow, by the planting of trees, during the fall or at least a concerted drive in the spring, they are now going about their preparatory work, with added zeal, and will not let their task be defeated by the discourag ing results of the first campaign. Among the many objections and excuses offered by tenants, land lords and home owners, the two most prevalent are that children destroy the young trees by swing ing on them and that cows, stray ing into the city limits, kill many by browsing. From recent investigation, it has been shown that through the lec tures given at all the schools of the city, boys and girls have learned to a large extent to admire and protect the aids to beautify their homes and those of their friends and neighbors, and that very few reports have been turned in relative to this destruction. The committee also state that reports naming destruction by stray cattle are not as numerous as some time ago. Since these two hazards have been removed, the committee feel that parents should be further urg ed to begin their tree planting, an appeal to the civic pride of the old er folks in co-operating with the children is being made inasmuch as the ones who have been reached through the schools show a great deal of enthusiasm. It has been very appropriately suggested that two trees, prefer ably cotton woods, since they are a quick growth tree, be planted on each fifty foot lot, and later, after these have had a good start, or at the same time, if desired plant a Chinese Elm or some similar long lived tree between the cottonwoods. Little water is needed for three outside trees, it is pointed out, and if landlords stress the necessity to their tenants of keeping the trees Like The Federal Reserve System The last bad panic, when many banks failed and people lost millions, was in 1907. Political economists think there may never be another such panic. For now the banks have the Federal Reserve System, a source of strength for big banks and small banks alike. Just as the banks liave joined together in the Federal Re serve System, so many electric light and power companies have joined together in investment and supervision companies—some times called “holding companies.” Through such an association the big company and the little company can exchange engineering skill and financial resources, and distribute their current most economically. The following interesting chart shows that everything else has gone up an average of 65 percent in cost since 1913. Contrast this with the achievement of the electric light and power industry during the same years: i — —l INCREASED COST / \ OF LIVING / COST OF ELECTRICITY 1914 1915 1916 1917 1918 1919 1920 1921 1922 1923 1924 1925 1 In many parts of the country the economies made possible by the investing and supervising companies have been a big fac tor in making the splendid record shown on this chart. Arizona Electric Power Co. “At Your Service” Make this an Electrical Summer alive, much progress can be made in the beautification of our city, it is believed. With the yearly drives repeated it is pointed out that, with our nar row streets, we will soon have shade trees which will spread their softening shadows entirely across the thoroughfares, besides enhanc ing the beauty of a towu situated in the desert. LUMBER FIRM IS SUED FOR FIRE DAMAGES PRESCOTT—In a suit brought by the United States of America and tried in the federal district court before Judge Fred C. Jac obs, the Saginaw and Manistee Lumber company of the northern part of the state was named as de fendant. The suit involving a principle of responsibility and the duty of the defendant in aiding and co-operat ing in the control of fires on the national forest, is for damages to taling $159.41 for three fires al leged to have been caused by en gines of the Saginaw and Manistee Lumber railway during 1924.

La Prade Making Vigorous Race For Office News of the campaign of Arthur T. La Prade, candidate on the Democratic ticket for the office of Attorney General of Arizona, is es pecially interesting to voters in Winslow and Navajo county, since Mr. La Prade is a product of Wins low. He was born and reared in this city, the son of F. T. La Prade, a pioneer cattleman of Navajo and Apache counties, and received his preliminary education in Winslow public schools. Mr. La Prade’s further education was attained at the Northern Ari zona Teachers College at Flag staff, and at the University of Cal ifornia at Berkeley. During the war he was in the service and is now a member of ex-service men’s organizations. Three of his outstanding achieve ments while county attorney of Maricopa county, are printed here: June 17, 1926, Mr. La Prade won a case in the Supreme Court of Arizona (State vs. Superior Court) defining powers of the Board of Pardons and Paroles. This deci sion prohibits the releasing on par ole of any prisoner from the Ari zona State Prison whose minimum term has not expired. This has been the law since statehood but has been totally ignored by the Board of Pardons and Paroles heretofore. Os this Board the At torney General is a member. June 2, 1926, Mr. La Prade won a case in the Supreme Court of Arizona (State vs. McKelvey) de fining the powers of Superior Court judges with reference to prisoners sentenced to the county jail. This decision establishes the law to be that no Superior Court judge or justice of the peace may suspend the executoin of any sen tence where the prisoner has there tofore been sentenced to the county jail. July 15, 1926, the Supreme Court of Arizona handed down an opin ion in the case of State vs. Meeks, 'a case appealed by Mr. La Prade. holding as contended by Mr. La Prade. that the drawing of a check on a bank in which the drawer lias no funds or insufficient funds, is a felony regardless of whether the check was given for an immediate consideration or given in payment of a past due indebtedness. o CAR OF ORE SHIPPED BY TENNESSEE MINE KINGMAN A carload of ore was shipped last week from the Tennessee mine, marking the be ginning of an active period of ship ping of the mine. Development work at the mine has been pushed forward during the past few months and the property is now in shape to produce a steady shipment of ore. it is announced. THE WINSLOW MAIL Scout Executive Waldraven Meets Local Committee Meeting with the district com mittee on Boy Scout work in Wins low last week, Robert Waldraven, scout executive for the Grarfd Can yon council, outlined a vigorous and comprehensive program for the coming year, planning among other things a drive to finance scouting, and a Fathers and Sons banquet* Definite dates were not set for either of the events. The opening of the school year will mean an increased interest in Scouting, Waldraven pointed out, because summer’s counter attrac tions to Scouting will not have to be contended with, and the ban quet is planned as an opening wedge to arouse interest. Scouts, their parents, friends and guardi ans, and all interested in the move ment will be invited to attend the banquet, w r hich will be similar in style, and probably will be handled under similar conditions, as the Rotarians’ father and son banquet some time ago. As no movement of any size can be directed without funds, it is ne cessary that a drive to finance Scouting will take place within a short time, and the local financial committee will start immediately to plan such a campaign for sub scriptions. Representative men of Winslow are behind the scout movement, finding it to be a worthy cause, and their interest has done much to promote the organization here and make it attractive to the boy hood of Winslow\ Each year finds more boys enlisted under the scout ensign, and more men taking an active part in scout leadership, and the committee hopes that this year will not fall behind the improve ments made in the past. LOCAL CATTLEMEN MEET OFFICERS OF CALIFORNIA ASS’N. (Continued from Page 1) Springerville, St. Johns, Holbrook, Flagstaff and other centers have held meetings, all with favorable results. “A great many producers com plained because they lost money last year,” said Mr. Russell. The men are non-members of the Cali fornia association and therefore did not receive the benefits of the extensive organization. We could have held price level this year had the big producers in California co operated with us. We might just as well have received eight cents a pound for fat cattle. The cattle men would have made money, and the packers would also have come in for their share of profits. “We need more control. We need the big operators to join in with us. There is no use of sky-rocket ing prices on the range. Find out what it costs to produce your cat tle. Let us know what profit you want, based on nearest competitive territory, and we will try to get it for you,” Russell told the cattle men. “I am absolutely against the sharp-shooting speculator who is after your business without a cent of investment.” Speaking of cattle conditions throughout the southwest, Mr. Rus sell stated that “Nevada cattle were going to market 30 days earlier this fall. They will market only about one-half of their last year’s production. Conditions in Idaho are the same; Wyoming is all right for feeders; Texas is O. K.; New Mexico is getting better this year. Cattlemen are not attempting to rush their cattle to market in or der to liquidate a lot of outstand ing debts.” “Eighty-five per cent of Arizona cattle now moving in to Califor nia,” said H. M. Rice, secretary of the California association. “Forty thousand calves were shipped to California last year by Arizona producers. W’ith Coconino county shipping cattle in the fall and the Salt River Valley moving their cat tle in the winter, Arizona cattle men are not competing against Cal ifornia cattlemen. We have scouts i through the five states to defend ourselves against false fluctua tions. They receive market prices each morning and are in a position to give the cattlemen in these states reliable information. The Califor nia Cattle Marketing association si not a profit earning corporation. It is primarily a selling organization. We want to get the same price in California for cattle as they get in any other state in the union. ’ According to Mr. Rice, the Cali fornia association is planning an extensive advertising campaign in the near future to influence the people to eat more beef and veal. “Arizona must help California stabilize the market if w r e are to receive better prices for our Ari zona cattle,” said Wayne Thorn burg, prominent Yavapai cattle man and chairman of the senate livestock committee, at the meeting in Flagstaff Monday. “When you sign up with the as sociation,” Thornburg told the Ari zona cattlemen, “you don’t have to worry about getting buyers for your range cattle. You can sell yours whenever and wherever you please. The association will help you find your buyers. It is infin itely a greater advantage for the small producer to join the market ing association than it is for the large operators. The little fellow with a hundred or less head of cat tle does not attract buyers while the large fellow with thousands of cattle has buyers come every day.” Twenty-five members of the Ari zona Cattle Growers’ association attended.

Arthur T. LaPrade Democratic Candidate for Attorney General As County Attorney for Maricopa County he has gained a state wide reputation as a prosecuting attorney DGDGDG Life-Saving GAS It won’t be long before the census taker will also ask each housewife interviewed if she owns a gas range—if plans now un der way in the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs goes into effect. These women are sponsoring a movement to assist the housewife and “lessen drudgery,” and this survey, when complet ed, will be the greatest piece of constructive work ever done by the Federation, according to its president. It is significant of the thoroughness of the movement that the kitchens of our homes are investigated first. We are proud of the fact that gas service and gas appli ances can play such a large part in lifting this burden of drudg ery. When the all-gas kitchen comes into wider service, house wives will be less overworked, and more homes will be made hap pier. “GET YOUR CONNECTION TODAY!!
