Washington, Nov. 15. - Congress
seems at last about to make the Grand
Canyon of Arizona a national park.
For years the canyon has been quite
generally regarded as a park, but of-
ficially it is a section of two national
forests, a game refuge and a national
"It has never been managed as a
part of the park system, and has nev-
er been susceptible of developnment as
such," says the house public lands
committee in reporting favorably a
Senate bill that would dedicate 950
square miles-600,000 acres-in north-
ern Arizona as the Grand Canyon
National park.'It appears that there
never has been a valid objection ad-
vanced against it," declares Secretary
Lane, in a statement favoring ~the
project. "Nor can spch an objec-
tion be urged, because the Grand Can-
yon belongs to the Federal Govern-
ment and any attempt to thwart a
change in its status, which would dis-
tinctly redound to its advantage, must
be of some private interest."
Private resources have accomplish-
ed limited development. Thousands
of tourists visit the Canyon annually,
but due to the lack of roads, trails
and side-trip destinations, the throngs
have little opportunity to enjoy in
full measure the marvelous grandeur
of the region.
Less than 400 of the 600,000 acres
that the proposed legislation would
place in the park are now in pri-
vate ownership, these being held in
small parcels near the rim. Obvi-
viously, the greater part'of the land
lies within the enormous gulf, meas-
uring at some points 20 miles across
the top. Sufficient land is to be in-
cluded back of the north and south
rims to make possible road develop-
ment and to care for camping and
hotel facilities.

Ilartha Cookies
Have A Jazz hand
In competition with the Army and
Navy band, Martha Cook has devel-
oped an orchestra. Yes, a real, live,
lusty one, too. Several weeks ago it
felt the syncopated fever of that long-
ing to create and indulge in music.
The good ol' ukes, banjos, and saxa-
phones were dusted off and tuned
anew. After laborious strummings
and blowings it was whipped into
tune and made its successful debut at
a closed caberet for inmates only.
The plaintive wails and arias produc-
ed put the Honolulu troupes to shame
and sincethen it has been interesting
in volume and quality.
Just as the baby's new tooth is the
object of parental pride and display
in some families, so is this infant
symphony the attraction supreme for
guests at the dormitory. Dinners in
the evening are made metropolitan by
the tinkling and twang of the orches-
trations. When the gay young Lotha-
rios come this year to serenade the
sweet damsels of Martha Cook they
may be surprised to hear a response
from the darkened windows above
that will vie with the efforts they
evidence in pouring forth their mel-
odies on the midnight air.
Will Preserve Present Copper Prices
(By the Associated Press)
Washington, Nov 15.-The American
copper industry, through a commit-
tee of producers and refiners, agreed
today with the war industry's board
to maintain present rate of produc-
tion and preserve existing levels of
prices and wages. Government reg-
ulation of prices and of material will
continue. The entire agreement is
to remain in effect until Jan. 1 next.

Pep Effervesces
At Jiass Meeting
A bolshevik convention in full cry
after a square meal couldn't have
made more noise or voiced more vo-
luminous enthusiasm than the men
jand women of Michigan did at the
fill auditorium yesterday afternoon.
And they were only practicing. When
they get out to Ferry field and put
on the real works while Yost's stal-
warts are jamming with the men of
Syracuse the kaiser willtprobably
jump through the skylight thinking
his wife has begun to lecture him,
and Henry Ford will thing the pee-
pul are calling him to public office..
That crowd wasn't there just be-
cause their officers marched them
in; they were there to do business
and they wanted to show that the
great emotion of natIonal patriotism-
only added fuel to the fire of love of
college. When the diretcors of pro-
ceedings decided it was time to quit,
the crowd demanded "The Yellow
and the Blue" before they would con-
sent to give their throats a rest. Lit-
tle Brute Lamport's whirligig hand-
springs typified the spirit of the af-
The affair began as soon as enough
people to raise an echo in the great
hall had got through the front doors.
It didn't end at all; it kept right on
in the hearts of the participants while
they yere experimenting as to the ef-
fect of corned beef and cabbage on
the gastric juices. It made some
particularly rapt co-eds drop two
lumps of sugar in their tea careless-
like. Yes, gentlemen and escorts, it
was a whizbang of a pep meeting.
