Freed In Slaying
P.TSBEE Dec. 24th A.P.)— Robert
Mallory was acquitted of murder
ing Lon Guy, cattle buyer, in a
local suburb December 21, in a Bis

Mallory took the stand after his
counsel’s motion to dismiss the
case was objected to by the prose

fight which preceded the shooting,
exhibiting head and face wounds
to bear out his story of being heat

counsel again moved for dismissal
on the grounds of self defense,
which the justice of peace granted
and Mallory was granted his lib

Santa Fe Adds
New Equipment
To Phoenix Train
PHOENIX, Dec. 24. —When the
Santa Fe train for Ash Fork pulls
out of the Union Station at 6:45
o’clock this morning it will have
new equipment consisting of a cafe
observation car, the latest move of
the railroad toward ease and com
fort of travel. Number 1510 is a
new and modern railway convey
ance and it wiil nave a sister car
to carry out the service betwween
Phoenix and Ash Fork.
The Santa Fe purchased 14 such
cars for its coast lines, according
to T. A. Kirkwood, city ticket agent
and two of them were sent to
this part of the division. Tne cars
were completed in the puilman
shops in Chicago December 10 and
were delivered directly to Phoenix.
As it lay in the yards yesterday
the new car was the pride of the
trainmen who appraised its equip
ment and compared it with cars of
the past. The comfort of the pas
senger is taken care of largely
through the weight of the car
which displaces 85 tons. Its over
all length is 85 feet.
Its construction is steel through
out. The interior is decorated in
a soothing battleship gray with tan
trim on the panels of the walls.
A conventional decorative design is
worked out on the walls and mold
The 20 moveable chairs in the
car are mhde of wicker and are up
holstered with a gray leather. They
areconstructed so that individual
service trays or smoking outfits
can be placed on them. They can
be moved about to face the broad
window' or too form conversational
groups. A writing table with a
small box next to it is provided for
the passengers.
The case has a seating capacity
of 20, more than that of the cars
which are being displaced. The kit
chen is completely equipped with
coal stove, oven, steam table and
other adjuncts of the culinary
department of a dining car. Re
frigerators, service pantry, cup
board all go to make up a complete
service department.
The two cars which are being
released for local service have not
been ordered away from here yet.

Fire yesterday morning brought
an unhappy climax to a family cele
bration of Christmas, when the J.
W. Parrish home at 110 West Cher-
ry street was partially destroyed by
a blaze that originated apparently
from a defective flue. Mrs. Par
rish and her daughter, who were
awaiting the return of Mr. Parrish,
a trainman, who waws to return
from his run early in the ftqrnoon,
discovered the lire about 9:00 a.
m., but on account of the choking
smoke were only able to save a
few personal effects.
The greatest damage was done
by water. The Winslow fire de
partment was on hand soon enough
to quell the blaze before it bad
done much damage to the interior
of the home, but the fact that the
fire was between the roof and ceil
ing added so much tQ the difficul
ty of reaching it that a great deal
of water failed to reach its mark.
Fireman Clothes Freeze
The excessive cold and wind
made the task of the firemen a hard
one. Many were drenched through
and their clothing froze in the
chilly winds.
The Parrishs little daughter was
heartbroken at the loss of most of
her Christmas gifts. Her mother
managed to save only a few' im
portant papers, and one of the
child’s presents, a doll-buggy.
Winslow people, stores and or
ganizations showed ready sympa
thy for the family so unfortunate
ly driven from their home.
Gilts of clothing, toys and neces
sities were presented yesterday be
fore the last embers of the blaze

some of the joy wiped out by the
Property Insured
The Parrish family rented the
house they occupied from C. H.
Jordan. Mr. Jordan arrived in
Winslow yesterday afternoon from
Holbrook. The house was cover
ed by insurance, as were the fur
nishings, which were also the prop
erty of Mr. Jordan.
The tire department used the new
American La-France. pump truck.
One 2 1-2 inch hose was laid, and
two smaller lines of hose received
water from the large one. The ef
ficiency of the pump in keeping a
strong and steady pressure through >
out the fire was tlie big factor in
the quelling of the blaze.

Today’s issue of the Weekly Mail will be the last to be issued, as it’s
publication will be discontinued in favor of The Daily Mail. When
The Daily Mail was started the publishers announced publication of the
weekly would be continued, believing that many of our subscribers
would want to continue the weekly instead of the daily. Since the daily
was started, however practically every one of our subscribers lias
changed to the daily, making it unnecessary to continue publication of
the weekly. All subscribers who! have retained their weekly subscrip
tion and who are paid in advande will either be refunded the balance
due them, or transferred to the dpily subscription lists, as they desire,
and will be so notified by mail. \
This move is made in order to give Winslow a better newspaper by

PHOENIX, Dec. 24 (AP) —Cover- or engineers to protect Arizona’s
nor W. P. Hunt today tendered
Arizona a Christmas present, the
exact value of which will not be
known for weeks. It was an ef
fort to forestall action on Calif
ornia’s Swing-Johnson Bouldfer
Canyon dam bill through the call-
ing of a special session of the Ari
zona legislature to vote funds to
send a committee to Washington.
The legislature will meet Janu

of the eighth state legislature in
regular session.
Means New Battle
Coming on the heels of apparent
unsuccessful attempts on the part
of the California, Nevada and Ari
zona river commissions to effect
an agreement for the development
of the Colorado river. The move
was interpreted to mean that this
state’s administration does not hope
for an equitable settlement of the
bitter controversy between it and
California, a controversy which has
waxed and waned since the draw
ing up of the Santa Fe, New Mexi
co compact iu 1922.
The proclamation calling the
special sesion pointed out that no

Flagstaff’s New
Toboggan Slide
Is Nearly Ready
FLAGSTAFF, Doc 21—Flagstaffs
municipally owned perpetual mo
tion tobaggan slide will soon be.
ready for action, was tlie announ
cement given out by the local
chamber of commerce who with the
Northern Arizona Teachers College
are sponsoring the directed pro
gram for winter sports this year.
The slide is being built on the
north slope of Observatory Hill
just above the new entrance to
Lowell Observatory. A shelter
has been built which in addition
to being a haven for the lovers of
this sport will be the starting point
of the slides.
Tobaggans to accomodate four to
six people will be used. It is said
that the tobaggans will attain a
speed of 60 miles an hour and that
they will be plenty safe enough in
rounding the curves in the slide at
this breakneck speed. The slide
is also, being banked high enough
to avoid spilling.
Leaving the top of the hill the
tobaggans drop off at a 45 degree
angle and attain such speed as to
climb up another hill, less steep
however, before reaching the end
of the slide a quarter of a mile be
yond. The second lap of the slide
is only 100 feet away. All that is
necessary to reach the other slide
is to carry the tobaggan this dis
tance and be whisked away to the
starting point of the first slide at
even greater speed.

Appearance Before
House Committee
State Representative C. J. Mc-
Quillan, who was summoned to
Washington to testify before the
House appropriations committee on
the needs of the Reserve Officers’
Association will not make the trip,
he announced yesterday, due to the
special session of the legislature
called by Governor C. W. P. Hunt
for January 3. The appearance be
fore the House committee would
have required iris presence in
Washington at a time when lie will
be required to be present at the'
meeting of the legislature.
A telegram to this effect was
sent yesterday to Prig. Gen. Hoy
ilofman, president of tho Reserve
Officers’ Association at Washing
ton and recommended that, someone
else in Arizona he called instead.
McQuillan, who is president of
the Arizona department of the or

Auto License
Application Is
Now In Order
Applications for motor vehicle
licenses for 1927 are now in order,
according to announcement made
yesterday by County Assessor
Wallace Shumway, who was in
Winslow, as the plates have begun
to arrive and will, as in the past,
be issued directly from the as
sessor’s office in Holbrook.
The plates this year will be cop
per with black numerals.
The Arizona 1927 plate is un
usual in that it is distinct from any
other state. Not only is Arizona
the only state using copper, blit
it is the only state using a color
representing the native product.
Application blanks will be avail
able in Winslow and in other por
tilons of the county at practically
all garages, as lias been the cus
tom i:i past years, due to the fact
that many owners find it inconven
ient to apply in person at his of
fice at the county seat in Hol
Owners should not forget that
certificate of ownership to their
< ar is necessary before license can
be issued, Sliumway said, and in
case the owner lias no real estate
on which the assessment on his
car may be attached, it. will be ne
cessary that personal property
taxes be paid first before license
can be issued, under the state law.
To have survived 10 forest tires
in more than 200 years only to

A full house and a well pleased
audience at the close of the even
ing’s entertainment were the gra
tifying results of the Winslow
High Schoool Seniors’ play:
“Adam and Eva,” presented last
night, at the Washington auditori-
The tliree-act comedy was a riot
of fun and held the interest of the
entire audience. The exceptionally
well selected case of seniors filled
their parts in a manner that
brought the amateur play on a
plane higher than the average, and
received the acclaim of local crit
ics in dramatic art who witnessed
the presentation.
The first tw r o acts, the scenes of
which were laid in the Long Island
home of James King, a rich man,
centered about the life of a pam
pered family who, accustomed to
the luxuries that money could buy,
had lost sight of the real love of
home and the companionship of
family life. Tiring qf the attempt
of their father to manage the house
in a business-lisle manner, a plot
is conceived whereby a neighbor,
a doctor interested in the family
millions and the young unmarried
daughter, declares that Mr. King
needs a lengthy rest in some far
off secluded spot. Dr. Jack Dela
meter, played by Paul Evans, who
ably took the part, and Ivan Han
cock, as James King, was all that
could be imagined in an irritable,
worried father.
Adelaide Martin cleverly carried
out the role of his daughter, Eva,
a ready assistant in planning the
affair. The scheme is discovered
by Mr. King, but glad to,leave for
a time he consents to go to South
America and to spend three
months there. In his absence he
places Adam Smith (John Scott)
as business manager and paternal
head of the King household. Smith,
a big, awkward but likeable young
chap has spent several months on
the plantation.
This role was particularly well
played, and won many enthusiastic

DeWitt, his eldest daughter (Laura
Smith), Aunt Abbie Rocker (Ina
Render), his sister-in-law, Lord
Andrew Gordon, his would-be son l
in-law (Clifford Bengston) all ac
complices in the plot to have a
gay time while father is away, do
not extend to Adam Smith the
friendship he expects, and when
he refuses to furnish funds for
their extravagant purchases and
games of chance, find excuses for
excluding him from their family
dinners and other affairs.
Clyde Brady, playing the role of
Horace Pilgrim, furnishes a great
deal of amusement. Corinthia, the
parlor maid (Daisy McGregor)
loyal friend to the family.
Perceiving that, such conditions
proved a helpful little soul and
could not continue, Adam Smith
conceives the idea of announcing
that through a radical change in
the stock market, they arc now
practically bankrupt.
Act three finds the King family,
including Lord Andrew, on a
chicken ranch in New Jersey, all
contentedly working. It is not un
til James King arrives home for
the Christmas holidays that it is
announced by the young, business
manager that the bankrupt story
was all a scheme to bring about
an awakening.
Lord Andrew, who has also un
dergone a decided change, discov
ers that it, is Adam that Eva loves,
and gallantly retires, permitting

People Thanked
For Assistance
At Postolfice
A message of appreciation of
the co-operation shown by post
office patrons of the Winslow dis
trict during the Christmas season
was sounded yesterday by Post
master A. It. Kleindienst.
Kleindienst was particularly ap
preciative of the patrons’ prompt
ness in calling for packages when
notified. During the Christmas
rush it. was necessary to add sev
eral extra clerks, and despite the
fact that, this year’s Christmas
mail and package business was
heavier than in any year past,, the
postmaster said that deliveries
were made promptly due to the
fact that the public did it’s part in
co-operating with the department.
As a part of the service Mr.
Kleindienst secured a special per
mit from the Department to allow
for delivery of packages during
the last few days of the rush,
which greatly aided the office as
well as giving patrons speedy see-
