• A group of 35 engineers of the U.S. Army Engineer Corps is now making Williams its headquarters. The engineers are all assigned to the Navajo Munitions depot project under construction at Bellemont and are being housed at Mt. Williams motor court in the city. The men have their meals served at the Beacon Café, which is now engaged almost entirely in the feeding of those connected in one way or another with Uncle Sam's war effort.
