The Tuc-' lon Central Trade Council, at its last meeting, selected committee to wait upl B. Z- McCollough nd Moe -Dracb-men, candidates for school trustee, to put them on record on the question of unionizing- the public school system. The school teachers' union was recently organized by labor union organizers, and Is affiliated with trie Central Trades Council. The Trades Councfl will have to look further for some one to carry the union banner In the election next Saturday, on the platform of the unionization of the public school system, for both Mr. Drachman and Mr. McCollough. in response to a request by The Star for a statement of their attitude, declared themselves opposed to the unionization of the public school system. McCollough's Attitude E. Z. McCollough said yesterday he would later issue a formal statement of his platform and that he would touch upon the question of the principle of "unionizing the teachers in the public schools. "I have already discussed with inter ested parties the matters in which the teachers of the public schools are especially Interested," said McCollough, "and I find that I am not only in agreement with what they stand for, but that In some cases 1 would go further than they. Briefly, I may say that I am in favor of adequate salaries for teachers, as I have recently declared In The Star; that I favor twelve month's employment contracts, and that I favor giving teachers due notice when their Services are to be dispensed with or are to be retained. I also favor putting school teachers under civil ' service and making their employment secure so long aa they give satisfactory service. Disapprove Teachers' Unions "However, I do not believe it is gooi Policy to unionize the teachers of the Puhllc schools. A strike or artisans Injures only the employe and the employer largely, but a strike of teachers would Injure the children of the community. The danger of unionizing the teachers lies In the fact that it might develop Into an orthodox union that relied on the strike to enforce its demands. 1 would make the teacher's lot, financially, i auch that they would be able to always ' Place the emphasis on the Interests of j the child, rather than upon their own j material interests. Efficiency 4I Aim "I am also opposed to making an arbitrary wage scale, for school teachers regardless of merit. I . believe in the ? rewarding of meritorious work and am opposed to any wage scale which would have the effect of putting a premium on Inefficiency. I would aim at efficiency rather than standardization of pay." "So, while I am :n Tavor of the things which the teachers' union desires and In some things would go even farther than they toward ameliorating their con- 4 V , ' -it.

SHOWER OF'STARS'TO FALL OVER SOUTHEAST ARIZONA THIS MORNING AS TUCSON'S LEADING NEWSPAPER IS SHOT TO READERS FROM THE AIR Arizona Daily Star To Make Journalistic History in the Southwest As First Newspaper to Be Delivered By Airplane to Subscribers Over Regular Route; Oriole Leaves With Copies of Paper For Safford and Way Points This Morning (Continued on Page Five.) OUR SUBSCRIBERS Will confer a favor on us by reporting any irregularity in delivery of The Star. If your paper is late, not placed in the proper place or if the boy happens to overlook you phone 90. OUR SPECIAL MOTOR CYCLE SERVICE WILL BRING ONE TO YOUR DOOR. 4 "The year the stars fell" is still vividly remembered by some Arizona old timers, and it became a mile-post of time by which subsequent events were reckoned. The last great meteor shower occurred In 18G6. There will be another shower of Stars this morning over southeastern Arizona, when the Arizona Daily Star will be shot to its subscribers along a given route, from an aeroplane, and It will mark an epoch in the delivery of newspapers In Arizona. It undoubtedly heralds the coming of the day when newspapers will be whisked by aeroplane from the roofs of newspaper buildings direct to subscriber, while the fragrant printer's ink is still moist. By an arrangement with the Arizona Aviation company. The Star will be delivered this morning to its subscribers at V'ilmot, Vail, Pan-tano, Catalina, Benson. Dragoon, Cochise. Wilcox and Safford, by airplane. The carrier-plane will be piloted by Howard Davis, one of the company's reliable pilots, and R. E. Fish-burn, general manager of the company, will go along to direct the distribution of the paper. The plane will leave Tucson at ID o'clock this morning and the papers for subscribers at destination. Safford. will be delivered to subscribers five hours earlier than they normally receive them. The distance of the trip; as routed, is about one hundred and forty miles. The plane will follow the Southern Pacific right-of-way as far as Wilcox, where it will circle north and make Safford as the last stop. The carrier-plane is an Oriole. It will be the first time in the history of the southwest thatan airplane has delivered newspapers to subscribers on a definite route. The papers will be regularly labeled in The Star's mailing department and will be wrapped with a thin wire to prevent them from being unfolded by the wind in falling, and each paper will bear the imprint "Delivered by Airplane." It is probable that subscribers to The Star at the places a'ong the carrier-plane's route will want to keep their copy of the paper as a souvenir. The plane will not stop to make deliveries, as it is desired to deliver the papers to subscribers without unnecessary delay, but the oriole will sweep close to the ground and throw the bundles agents. I Thu erinJo, charge, will take part In a program at Safford Sunday, by giving flights , over the Gila valley town and en- vlrons. Thcr..' will be a program of horne racing and a baseball game. ' The program will be under the auspices of the Safford Athletic association, of which D. U Ridgway is president. Pilot Howard Davis served two ' years In the air service of the United States, one year as an instructor, and in all of his service never had an accident or damaged a plane, a record of efficiency that few bird-men can equal. Pilot Davis has just been appointed a first lieutenant of the aviation section signal officers reserve corps, which gives him the privilege of flying all government planes at any government field. R. B. Fishburn is the dean of aviation enthusiasts in Arizona and was the moving spirit in the organization of the pioneer commercial aviation company. It was largely through his efforts that the Tucson aviation field was established and placed at the service of the government .and for his work he was given the courtesy of a flight to Douglas and return, recently, in an army airplane. Mr. Fishburn will carry a letter from Mayor O. C. Parker of Tucson to Mayor Owens of Safford. said to be the first official greeting ever sent from qne Arizona mayor to another, by airplane.

In which. -Porter Was found. I armistice. Students at the university assembly yesterday heard a vigorous denuncia tion of "trlflers" among their number by Major J. J. Boniface. Among the faults'' which Major Boniface said he found among the students at the stare university are: Silly and Immature" boys In the engineering department giggle Instead of working. Many students da not show proficient high school preparation. Many of the students are 'nto'er-nt of restraint and wit'1 to have their own "sweet way." Among the women students he found one whs told him she did nit attend church and the older she grew the less she thougnt of thtm. NeatntM and courtesy are lacking In the student bodv Few of them taka sufficient exer. else and In ten years many would be wrecks unles they did. Too many girls effect the "debutante slouch" and think they look "sweet" In the act. The average student If not open to new Ideas.

Major Boniface said: "The other day I passed a rosy cheeked girl and thought how fresh and sweet she looked and I tipped my hat. . She iailed past like an Iceberg without a algn of recognition." The major was cheered by the assembly after his address.
