The entry of Larry Baumer, Utopia, Tex., also placed second in the cow horse stallion class. First in that class was "Peppy", King ranch, Texas, which was ineligible for the championship because it did not take part in yesterday's speed trials. "Little Joe, jr.'s" time in that event was 23 3/5 seconds. Third in the cow horse stallion class was "Fosty", owned by Chick Logan, Tucson, and fourth was the entrj of Miss M. A. Pelletier, Tubac, "Guinea Pig". J. H. Minnick, College Station, Tex., completed judging of quarter horses and cow ponies. The show ring will be empty tomorrow for the annual rodeo and parade. Col.

The talk is of war or of immediate help to Britain to preserve democracy. No voices are raised in the broad interest of a humanity suffering already from starvation and threatened famine—no voices except perhaps that of Herbert C. Hoover and a group of friends.

No Answer At All The answer that Great Britain does not approve, which is accepted by so many people as sufficient rea- " son for turning down the Hoover plan, is really not an answer at all. For next door to France, food is being sent to Spain to feed Gen. Francisco Franco's people. Why is the British blockade relaxed there? qua, Tucson. • Cow horse, foals of 1939: First, "Clara Bow", J.

Because it is to the diplomatic in-(*£,«£'/£"., terests of the British war policy to do so. This merely means that Great Britain does not withhold food from the axis-dominated areas because of a belief that the food might fall into German hands, but because it is not considered strategically de- sireable to let the food through the blockade at this time. It is not a military, but a morale problem. Opinions Differ On matters of this kind, opinions governments perimental plan. Mr. Hoover complied with the statutes in that he clearly presented the idea as an unofficial undertaking and not in any way sponsored by the American government.

It is not surprising that the one man in the world who has had a vast experience with feeding large numbers of people in the last war should be today the staunches! advocate of food relief. It is more surprising that what was permitted in the last war is not tolerated in this war, though everybody knows the food sent to occupied Belgium in the last war did not reach the Park Service Parley Held COOLIDGE, Feb. 20— The second annual conference and school of instruction for custodians of national monuments in Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona opened here yesterday •with Hugh M. Miller, superintendent of Southwestern National Monuments, in charge. 'In his opening address, Mr. Miller paid tribute to the late Frank Pinkley, who died just as the first conference convened last year. Mr. .Miller said several national monuments at which previously iic wuuiu „,. .„„„.. there had been no development to £ d j safeguards would be pro- ^WnSMJin f-fnrin] £ vided toVevent the food from fall- ready for public use this spring.

It is a problem of ' strategy which may affect the outcome of the war itself. Would the war come to a quicker end if peoples in the occupied areas starved? Is it thought rhat resistance is increased when men are hungry? Or will it happen that the occupied peoples will find themselves bowing to the conquerors and erring up the instrument of passive resistance which has been so powerful in history? Mr. Hoover has launched a simple plan. He would try an experiment „„,reported three permanent and two I If ";° w Jl „, L,n iirh temporary ranger stations estab-| The establishment of soup kitchens will change the British view? Only a belief that the sending of food will hasten rather than delay a German defeat. The British thus far have been as alert to the possibilities of keeping the former democratic peoples as a potential source of strength when British sea poyver and air power gain the ascendancy. Ill will engendered today on the continent of Europe will complicate Britain's problem when she counts on a reorganized population to help carry on the war alongside a British invading force. The British leaders are staking all on the idea of a rigid blockade, but in fact they are making difficulties for themselves for the future. For in the event that the submarine blockade of England should become effective, the cry will come to America to find a way lo keep the sea lanes open so as to feed the British people. From a humanitarian standpoint, there is as much reason for feeding one population as another. Nazis Will Get Food The outcome of the present war German military forces or prevent does not depend on the effectiveness of a food blockade because Yuma Prison Champion Cowboys For Rodeo the old territorial prison, vacant for 25 years, today were ordered readied by the Yuma County Board of Supervisors for possible occupancy should there be additional arrests in the dispute between the Bruce Church Company and the Congress of Industrial Organizations packing union. T. H. Newman, sheriff, said the county jail was filled to capacity with the 74 pickets arrested Tuesday and Wednesday for contempt. They are accused of violating a superior court injunction against picketing at the company's lettuce packing shed. Out of operation since Monday, the shed remained closed today, but there was no picketing. Twelve of the 74 persons arrested were women. All were held in jail in lieu of S100 bond each. They will face trial Wednesday. The company obtained the injunction against molestation on grounds that a labor dispute was nonexistent, announcing its willingness to hold an election to determine a bargaining agency. The pickets were identified by the complaints as members of the United Cannery Agricultural Packing and Allied Workers of America, a Congress of Industrial Organizations affiliate. Part of the old prison recently was restored as a museum. . TUCSON. Feb. 20— (AP)— Champions of the dust-busting sport gathered tonight for the 17th annual Fiesta de los Vaqueros, and Friday, Saturday and Sunday the 153 entries wi'l compete for nearly $10,000 in day money and final prizes. The rodeo committee put up $4,300 in prize money and entry fees totaled $5.525. Ore-wagons, stage coaches, ox carts, buggies and surreys were readied for the 417 entries in tomorrow morning's street parade. Indians, cowhands, dudes and school children will participate. A "dress western" edict has been enforced for IP days on city streets by a vigilante committee with a portable jail. Advance ticket sales for the three-day show totaled $14,068, an all-time high, and a 10 per cent increase over last year. Hotels and tourist courts have lished since the last conference. Talks were given today by Dale S. King, archaelpgist; Chester A. Thomas; and Hillory A. Tolson. Washington, D. C., chief of operations for the National Park Service. o Morenci Pupils Hold Programs MORENCI, Feb. 20—Morenci schools will observe Washington's Birthday with programs in the high school auditorium tomorrow. Elementary schools will present a program at 10:30 a. m. Numbers •will include: Flag salute, led by pupils; song, "America", all; recitations by lower grades; recitations by upper grades; motion picture, "Washington Winning Independence"; assembly singing, "God Bless America", "America the Beautiful", and "The Star-spangled Banner". School principals directing will be Miss Lillie Hunt, Kenneth Chilton, and Miss Esther Randall. The high school will present the following program at 2 p. m.: pledge of allegiance; singing of America", all; delivering of winning orations on the United States Constitution by James Christensen. Mary Lou Lunt, and Lois Harden; readings. J. R. McFarland end Jean Gibson; sketch on Washington's life, Dan Dickerson; and there are plenty of sources of food for the Nazis themselves. The war will be won by naval and air power combined and by the side with the stronger civilian morale. Hence if the peoples in the Low Countries and in occupied France are given food now through British and American auspices they will be potential allies when the tide of battle has turned. j The fact that a former president of the United States and a sympathizer with the British cause is devoting all his time to the problem of feeding the starving peoples of the European continent is inspiring. It shows that despite the hatred and bitterness of war, the Quaker spirit of helping the innocent victims of war is still fostering the principles of Christian brotherhood. patriotic numbers school band.

M., Feb. 20 (AP)—B. L. Cook, 30-year-old civil engineer and pilot of Whittier, Calif., arrived here today weary, unshaven and mudspattered, but unscathed from a forced landing which wrecked his light plane in a farmer's field in Northern New Mexico. Cook notified the Civil Aeronautics Administration here at 5:30 a. m. today that he had landed near Cuba, N. M., about 6:30 p. m. yesterday, the hour he was due to arrive in Albuquerque from Winslow, Ariz. CAA communications east and west of here had hummed all" night in an effort to find the missing flier. Cook was en route to Amarillo, Tex., home of his parents, to visit his father who is seriously ill. He said he was following the radio beam and "somewhere over Gallup my radio went haywire." When he brought his three-place monoplane down out of the clouds about 6:30, he said, he became worried when it began to snow and he realized he was lost. He suffered not a scratch when his plane nosed over on a field covered with 18 inches of show. The plane's propeller was smashed and the ship landed on its back. This morning a rancher took him on a tractor 30 miles through snowdrifts to the nearest telephone, with which Cook revealed that he was safe.
