SALOME,, Arte., ApTil 7 Out
on the Harqua Hala desert, tar
from the conveniences of a mod
ern elty. nearly four score dis
abled veterans of the World war
are making a valiant fight to re
gain the health lost in their
country's service. These men
hare practically cut themselves
off from civilization, calmly ae-
. ceptlng the rigors of the desert
in the hope that they will eventu
ally win their way to health- The
settlement which they hare
formed on the desert coyer a
wide range some of the families
living as far as 75 miles apart
Road Facilities Poor
Travelling facilities are far
from good. Considerable work has
been done by the men In road
improvement but it is of little aid
as the highways are continually
subject to being washed away. In
many Instances the roads have
been entirely disregarded and
travel has followed a general di
rection through the desert, hun
dreds of pathways weaving
through the cactus between the
settlement and Hassayampa.
-There is little opportunity to de
velop property because of the
shortage of water. Some garden
ing is done for home use but for
the most part the men ar.e content
Just to rest there,; taking; life easy
and seeking to regain' their health.'
Government compensations af
ford them a meager living.
The community life took on a
new note recently with the organ
ization of a post of the American
Legion. The names of 16 veterans
appear on the charter granted by
the state department of the post,
and all but four are rated as
permanently disabled veterans.
The organization of the Legion
post was made possible through
the construction of a community
hall. The veterans have
opportunity to hold any general
gatherings save those with the sky
as a roof. None of the shacks or
houses were large enough to ac
commodate more than a half-dozen
at a time. The Legion post
- and the community hall Is expect
ed to do much to aid in the social
welfare of the settlement.
