clared it was the most repiesentativc
state meeting ever held in Arizona.
There were men picsent from every

It was the unanimous opinion of
the members of the congiess who
were present that the convention did
much to cement the spirit of co-opcr-,

and that it would give added impetus;
to the work of the Industrial Con

DECREASE IN USE OF MEAT
HURTS LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY
The reputation that Americans are
t the greatest meat-eating reople in the
world is not sustained by the fact ..
' The principal meat - eating nations
of the world, in order of per capita
; consumption, are Argentine. Australia
and Now Zealand, 'with the Uii'ted
States standincr fomth. There has
been a decline in recent years of the
per capita consumption of meat in the
i United States. This is largely attrib- j .
ntablo to the high letail price ofjsta
-'iTirr whirh has increased out of all
'; proportion to the price obtained by I
' the fanner for his livestock and the
price at which the packer an I whole
saler dispose ot the meat to tne re
tailer. The leaction of this decieaso
in consumption of meat K beginning
to be evident in the decrease in the
production of livestock.

THE COLORADO DISPUTE
AND THE WASTE OF TIME
As thi paper picdicted some time
since, the Hoover pact drafted at
X:iiit!i l'p is mentinir with much active
(opposition not only in Arizona, but
also in me oincr siaies uiie-cieu. i.
geneial suspicion is being moused and
is steadily growing that neither Ari
zona nor ary of the other states af
fected needed this "ticaty" to secuie
and to picseive their light;; in the
flow of the stream.
We appear to be wasting in argu
ment and criticism valuable time that
had far better be devoted to develop
ment. While the delegates fiom the (
several states are wrangling and while
the legislatures are preparing to de
liberate, the Impel ial valley is still in
danger of destruction, the power re
sources of the river are flowing un
used to the gulf and the descit lands
are still making their mute appeal for
i the viifing water that alone can
make them blossom into fertility.
Two piojects, both inside the terri
torial limits of the stale, are com
pletely financed and ieady to go to
woik tomorrow and both are held up
indefinitely while the talk merchants
wag their futile jaws. The Glen Can

can go ahead at a moment's notice.
Much of the preliminary work has
been done alieady and active opera

behind it a stoiage area that can hold

ranges on December 1 was SO per cent
of normal, compared with 70 per cent
on November 1. The pooicst condi
