King, Democrat, Utah, conduct ing an investigation of campaign funds in Arizona at the behest of Senator Ralph H. Cameron, Repub lican, today discussed with attor ney's for Cameron and for the Dem ocratic state central committee the possibility of bringing to Phoenix four California witnesses who have been subpoenaed to appear. No decision was reached, how ever, and the matter will be held ip abeyance, Senator King indicat ed, until after tomorrow’s testi mony. This afternoons session of hearing was recessed for want of witnesses until 9:00 a. m., tomor row. Counsel for both sides to the slush fund case expect to have ex amined all witnesses subpoenaed by that time with the exception of those in California. The Californians asked subpoe naed by Cameron counsel are Har ry Chandler of the Los Angeles ' T ’fmes; W. B. Mathews, special counsel for the Los. Angeles board of water commissioners; S. O. Evans, of Riverside, President of the Boulder Canyon Dam associa tion; and R. H. Ballard, vice presi dent and general manager of the Southern California Edison com pany. Those Ivitnesses who remain to be heard here are Sam Applewhite, personal secretary to James S. Douglas, Arizona Copper magnate and a heavy contributor to the cam paign fund of E. E. Ellinwood, Phoenix banker, defeated in the pri mary election last month for the Democratic gubernatorial nomina tion; James Casey; Henderson Stockton, manager of Ellinwood’s campaign; and Mike Cassidy, all alleged to have some knowledge of a gigantic combination formed to gain economic and political control of the state of Arizona and to de feat Senator Cameron in his race for re-election to the United States ■senate. - ;Just after declaring a recess this afternoon Senator King said he f.qok cognifiiance of a statement at tributed to the campaign committee oi Senator Cameron on publicity, “which referred to the chairman of the committee.” He added that he ,"sincerely hoped that Campaign committees and publicity commit tees of all candidates will try to keep within the realm of reason and truth.” He referred thus to a publication Which appeared on the streets of Phoenix last night, purporting to tjuote Senator Cameron as saying that he, himself was trial and not there against whom he had brought Charges of corruption in campaign finance. The Utah Seator said tie would await the appearance of Senator Cameron before giving the matter further consideration. At the morning session A. P. Stewart publisher of the Prescott Courier, Bhd Earl C, Porterfield, cashier of the Albuquerque National Bank, ap peared before Senator for ques tioning at the morning session. Porterfield denied that any funds had been transferred from bis bank to Arizona, for political use, and knowledge, of any such transfer by anyone else. 1 * o— : —— r GEORGIA DEJIOCitATIC —ATLANTA* Ga„ Nov. 2, 1926 (A P —United States Senator Wal ter F.

CARAWAY RE-ELECTED LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 2 (AP) —Thaddeus H. Caraway, Dem ocrat. Arkansas, was re-elected to the United States Senate in today’s general election. Champion Ingrate Os World Visited Winslow This Week The most ungrateful man in the world “blew” into Winslow Monday morning, and blew out Monday af ternoon with the admonition from the lips of Cahrlie Harp, city mar shal, that the “blowing out” process was not ot extend over a period of ten minutes. A Mexican woman appealed to the city marshal asking that he re cover a watch stolen from her lit tle boarding house by a stranger who appeared about noon Monday and asked for food. His personal appearance advertised the fact that he-was a knight of the road. His extreme youth excited the sympa thy of thq kindly old Mexican lady, who poured forth her generosity until the ravenous appetite of the wandering boy had been appeased. Shortly after his departure an old watch, a masterpiece of the watch maker’s art of many years ago was missing. It’s intrinsic value would scarcely total three German marks, but it had been a valued keepsake of several generations past, and was therefore prized by the kind hearted old Senora. Harp rounded up several young -men who bore evidence of recent contact with the open road, and the young man who had accepted the humble hospitality of the old lady was immediately identified by her. He denied having taken the watch, but when searched by the marshal the timepiece was found. A lecture on gratitude was de livered by Mr. Harp, who conclud ed by askiug the ingrate which way he was traveling. “West,” the abashed young man replied. “Well, that’s west,” the marshal admonished, pointing down Second street, “and don’t let it take you over ten minutes to get out and stay out of the city limits.'

The proclamation urges such ex ercises in the schools and else where as will teach every boy and girl his or her responsibilities as a citizen and train them for the maintenance and perpetuation of the best in the life and ideals of the republic. The combination of Education Week with Children’s Book week, it is pointed out by those promot ing the weeks, should allow for some particularly interesting pro grams which will combine propa ganda for better education and more reading. The purpose of a national educa tion week is to acquaint the public with the work and needs of the schools. It is the only time of the year that the entire nation is called upon the dedicate itself anew to the great task of universal educa tion. A program as an outline for pro motion of the week has been drawn up by the National Education As sociation, the American Legion and other organizations. San Bernardino Novices Repeat; Drub Winslow 26-0 This San Bernardino Apprentice team is getting mighty monotonous, the -way they have gone about, lam basting other apprentice teams on the Santa Fe coast lines. Not con tent with trimming every eleven with which they have come in con tact, not content with licking Wins low at home a few weeks ago, last Sunday they were so inconsiderate as to again mistreat the local ap prentices, who went all the way to San Bernardino for a 26-0 trounc ing. Only in the middle portions of the game were the Winslow grid ders able to do anything at all with Berdoo’s rushes. Two of the prune pickers’.touchdowns came in the first quarter, and the other two in the last ten minutes of play. In fact, the first kick-off, San Bernar lino to Winslow, resulted in a touchdown for the Californians, when Rhoton fumbled and San Bernardino recovered. From this recovery the weighty Berdooites marched down the field to the goal posts. Only one man seemed to be able to do much with San Bernardino. Three guesses will not be required to fasten the tenacles of supposi tion on Hitchock. His performance is as pleasantly monotonous as San Bernardino’s is monotonously un pleasant. Danny uncorked one bril liant dash around end for thirty yards, but he was well in the mid dle of the field, so it lacked con siderable of being good for points. “Cowboy” Holt, lately returned from those same San Bernardino shops, played in the line for Wins low, and if any lineman’s work de serves credit, it is that of Holt. With “Abie” Chase out of the roster with a smashed foot, the backfield ■was further disabled by injuries to Osterhaut and Rhoton, sustained in last Sunday’s game. Osterhaut is in the hospital with several broken ribs, while Rhoton is hobbling about on a badly dis located knee. Winslow, in getting licked con secutively and frequently by San Bernardino, at least has much in common with other coast league ap prentice clubs, for San Berdoo has won the Coast Line Championship. Having contributed in some meas ure of disappointment and so onto San Bernardino’s season of victory, Winslow will derive quite a bit of spectacular benefit later in the month. For this reason: On Sunday, No vember 21st, San Bernardino plays Wellington, Kansas, champions of their section, IN WINSLOW, for the double championship. This clash will give Winslow iies an opportunity t« see two of the best amateur football aggregations in the west in action, and will pre sent several individual stars of the first magnitude. Winslow this Sunday meets Clov is, New Mexico, here, and in their determination to wipe out the stig ma of a bad season, some pretty football should be displayed. Talent new to the apprentice team of 1926, but familiar to Winslow will be in the lineup to take the place of those on the sick list. ARMISTICE DAY PARADE PLANNED BY SERVICE MEN PHOENIX —Arrangements have been completed for one of the most elaborate Armistice Day parades in the history of Phoenix, the pro gram to begin at 10:30 o’clock on Thursday morning, with a line of march covering several blocks. The arrangements are under the direction of Captain Charles Head, who is being assisted by Frank Luke Post No. 1, Phoenix Post No. 50, and William Blake Post (color ed) of the American Legion; the Veterans of Foreign Wars; Auxi liaries to each of the posts; the Phoenix Union High School band of 60 pieces; 500 cadets from the high school; Indian School band, and cadets; Disabled Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Spanish War Veterans. The program will be given at the City Hall and the reviewing stand will be erected at the intersection ot First i -emir and Washington PHOENIX WOMAN HEADS ARIZONA TEMPERANCE U PHOENIX—Mrs. F. B. Stevens of Phoenix, was elected president of the Arizona Women’s Christian Temperance Union at the Friday morning’s session of the organiza tion’s thirty-seventh annual conven tion here. Mrs. Leoara Lobban Brewer, of Tucson, retiring presi dent, was named vice president at large. Other officers for the ensuing year are: Mrs. Florence L.

Webb, Tombstone, recording secretary, and Mrs. Hat tie E. Buck. Tempe. treasurer. Mrs. Stevens for part of the past year has served as vice president at large, for the state, and was for a number of years state correspond ing secretary. Mr„s. Brewer, in an address, charg ed that European liquor interests w r ere throwing millions of dollars into America to secure a modifica tion or repeal of the Volstead act. o CLOSE CALL FOR TWO WHEN NO. 4 SMASHES SEDAN Two people narrowly escaped death when a sedan in which they were riding was struck by the sec ond section of the Santa Fe train number 4 at the Beaver street crossing at Flagstaff Monday morn ing at 6:55. According to reports J. R. Janeway and Sam Folsom, both of Winslow, were in charge of the train, Folsom as conductor and Janeway as engineer. The train w r as coming down the hill under control and slowly when the car drove from the north on to the track directly ahead of it. The tender struck the left rear wheel and shoved the car about 30 feet and over on to the other track. Both occupants of the car, Mr. and Mrs. John Adler of East Chi cago, Indiana, were found lying on their faces, unconscious, under the right front wheel of the car by An ton Felker. Adler’s partner, Avho with his wife and son in another Buiclc sedan had made the crossing just ahead of the Adler car. Felker called people from the train to help him lift the wrecked automobile off the injured people. Wm. Truckee, night operator at the Santa Fe depot, at once phoned Dr. M. G. Fronske, who notified Dr. Charles Ploussard of Mercy hospi tal, who was soon at the scene of the accident and had the Adlers taken to the hospital, where it was found that they were not injured beyond numerous painful bruises, though both were suffering consid erably from shock. Adler was around town in a few hours. His wife, whose back was badly wrenched, stayed in the hos pital two or three days. All the glass in the windshield and front doors was shattered, none back of that being cracked. The sill under one side of the body wa3 splintered and the battery knock ed out and smashed, and altogeth er the car is pretty milch of a wreck. The Adlers had given up their home in the east and with the Fi llers were on their way to Los An geles, where they may locate. Mr. Adler is about 40, and his wife a few years younger. • Had the train been going as fast as many of the trains do when they hit that crossing, there is little doubt both people in the car would have been killed, in the opinion of spectators. There is no watchman at the crossing at that time, nor any time during the night aftre 5 p. m„ the only protection automo bile drivers haying against trains from the -west, the approach of which is hidden by buildings until they are close to the crossing, be ing small luminous crossing signs at either side of the right of way. o Lumberjacks Whip Phoenix Indians In Close Battle FLAGSTAFF The Phoenix Braves threw the greatest scare in to the Lumberjack squad this sea son by holding T. H. “Swede” Lyn ch’s huskies to a 7 to 0 score, in the feature event of the third annual homelcoming day 6f the Northern Arizona Teachers college. The In dians battled the Lumberjacks at their own game and time after time threw the throng into fits of pas sion by their masterful handling of the elusive oblong with numb fing ers caused from the sudden drop in tlie temperature here. Coach Lynch's proteges appeared to be stage struck and frightened by the invading Braves. They fum bled the ball at crucial times, thus cutting down their chances of run ning up the score. The Northerns made their lone tally in the closing minutes of. the second quarter through a pass from Wilson to Pat ton, with Captain Wilson converting for the extra point. The Braves in the last stanza took the defense and the game be came a kicking duel between Cap tain Wilson of the Lumberjacks and Bread of Phoenix. The Indians were unable to penetrate the for ward wall of the Flagstaff Teach ers. During the entire last half they only made one first down while the Lumberjacks hammered their wall for eight. Bread and Lewis starred for the Indians with Captain Wilson lor the Teachers. Wilson got off some long punts in the afternoon's play, kicking the oblong through the air for 60 and 70 yards at a clip.
