Gentlemen: Please forward ma fur ther information regard ing Scottsdale. Address Name B f During the past week or so con siderable discussion has been had relative to a reorganization of the Phoenix Real Estate Board, with the result that after a meeting or two, some definite steps were taken. From the present appearances the new board will be a definite portion of the board of trade and will work with that organization in upbuilding the city and valley. The history of the work to -date is as follows: The Phoenix realty board was called together for their first meeting Monday. May 11th. A. AY. Galpin took the chair and in a brief manner stated the object of the meeting and read the names of the brokers who had already made application for membership. After considerable dis cussion it was unanimously agreed that no definite plans for organiza tion be completed at this meeting and that the election of officers be postponed until another date. The chair was authorized to appoint such committees as he might deem proper with results as follows: Constitution end by-laws, H. S. Prince, R. S. Thompson and S. P. Healey; mem bership, L. G. Hays, Fred Jacobs and C. B. Bernard; nominations, H. S. i Groom, T. M. Burroughs and AV. K. James. The by-laws committee have completed their efforts; the member ship committee has succeeded in in ducing nearly every firm in the city to become members of this board, the nomination committee will make their report at ' the next meeting, which will be held at the Phoenix board of trade, Monday night, May 25, at eight p. m. At this meeting an election will be held for officers to serve for the ensuing year, the tcnstitution and by-laws will be rdopted and auch other business as may come before the board will have its proper attention at this time. The temporary officers most earnestly rcu,uest that all signed members of this board be present at this meet ing, as business of importance, in addition to the election of officers, will be considered. The Phoenix realty board is to be a part of the Phoenix board of trade and will be known as the Phoenix realty board of the Phoenix board of trade. The objects of this board shall be to secure for its members the benefit or the united efforts and concentrated power to the end that the evils and annoyances now con nected with the transaction of the business of dealing in real estate shall be abated, to promote good fellowship and fair dealings, to pro tect both its members and the pub lic in general from irresponsible, un principled and dishonest dealers, to promote the enactment of legislation for the protection of property rights and the dealings pertaining thereto, to do all else in its power which may tend to the upbuilding of the stability and dignity of dealing in real : estate and to secure uniformity of action in all matters having for their object the welfare of the city of Phoenix and the Salt River A'al ley generally. The membership shall be unlimited, but each application of membership shall be voted upon at a regular ' meeting. Any person or firm en gaged in the real estate and land or real estate loan business, or in the management of such property, and who maintains an office in the city of Phwnix for the transaction of such business, shall be eligible for regular membership. In conjunction with the Phoenix realty board, a valuation committee shall he appointed to consist of five members and they shall make ap praisal of real property when applied for. This committee will be of im mense value to outsiders and to the probate court, it being the first organized body in a position to know real estate values that services could be had or depended upon. There has been no difference made in the schedule of commissions. The board has adopted rules of conduct which, if lived up to, will be the means to bringing all of the differ ent members of this board together in a very satisfactory manner. Con fidence is the foundation upon which wy business structure, to prove last ing, must be built. Especially is it true of the real estate brokerage business. That its members may merit the confidence reposed in them by ' the general public upon which they must depend for their success and that they may stand high in the estorm of their fellows. One of the rules adopted by th; board wUl be found in Article A'lII of the consti tution and by-laws, which is as fol lows: "Any member found guilty of fraud or dishonesty towards this board, its members, or in any deal ing -with clients, after due investi gation by an appointed committee, may be disciplined, suspended, or expelled, provided at least four-fifths of the members vote for conviction." This nrticle, being adopted, makes Work on Alfalfa Ranches ir Vallej- of Giant Subsoiler Seems to SIioav Solution of the Former Knotty Problem Almost everyone has heard the fa mous alfalfa truism that is credited to Secretary Coburn of Kansas, "Al falfa makes poor land good, and good land better." Judging from the re cent experiments in the Salt River Valley, this might be paraphrased to read, "Subsoiling makes poor alfalfa good, and good alfalfa better." A splendid demonstration of the results of subsoiling may be observed at the ranch of Charles M. Smith, located north of Alhambra and about three miles due west from the Indian School. Side by srde are two fields of alfalfa, both seeded two years ago. One seven acre field was subsoiled in January, 1913, and not only was the yield increased over four-fold, but the stand over the whole tract is absolutely regular, whereas before the fild had been somewhat "spotty." There are many splendid alfalfa ranches in the valley, where there is an occasional streak or spot where the soil doesn't seem to "take the water," where the alfalfa makes a fair start every spring and then seems to be stunted. Many methods have been tried to change this con dition, but subsoiling appears to be the most economical and efficient. At the present time Kunz Bros. & Messinger are demonstrating a Rum- ely oil-pull tractor and a double gang subsoiler on the Hirst-Baldwin ranch, seven miles west of the fair grounds, no acres of young alfalfa are being subsoiled here, and it is interesting indeed to see the soil lift up several inches, crack, crumple and settle down, thoroughly broken up, as the deep-running plows are pulled through the ground by the powerful engine. The two subsoilers are set to run about 15 inches deep, and run forty inches apart, making only a narrow incision in the surface and doing comparatively little damage to the alfalfa plants. C. T. Hirst has figured out several improvements on the subsoiler used, placing a coulter wheel under the beam, and changing 60 Feet Width Lots The only plaoe in all Phoenix Avhere there will be no croAvding ample room to build a home. . . . . : ; OAKLAND This popular size lot has caught the town The size Avas a big factor then again being inside the city limits, means street sprinkling and lighting, garbage removal, police and fire protection, sewer, gas, and electric lights.

This board will endeavor to have passed at an early date a city ordinance which will assist them in protecting the general public from unprincipled and unlicensed dealers. the angles of the shares and up rights. Although the shares are but a few inches wide, and are set 40 inches apart, the ground is thorough ly loosened from furrow to furrow. It is estimated that the work costs $2.50 per acre, and this amount is leally inconsequential when one fig ures how much the operation im proves soil conditions, how it loosens and lightens the ground, breaking it up so that the air can get into it, so that a vastly greater amount of wat er is quickly taken up, creating in a way a sub-irrigation system, one that permits heavier irrigation ai each run, and longer periods "be tween drinks" for the lower depth of water saturation tends to retard evaporation. Professor King of the University of AVisconsin. a practical student of agricultural physics, and regarded as one of the world's foremost experts en soil handling says, "Subsoiling is undoubtedly most profitable in semi arid climates, tending as it does, to increase the available moisture . for rop production. It is not necessary to wait an en tire season to see the good results of subsoiling, for on Northern ave nue, near the AVashington school, on a ranch belonging to the Valley Re alty company may be seen a great improvement in a field of alfalfa that was worked over just a short time aso. From the Hirst-Baldwin ranch, the outfit goes a few miles farther west, to the Dwight B. Heard "West ranch" where for the next few days it will be at work subsoiling an 80-acre tract. SELLING GOOD ALFALFA I GASOLIXE 18c PER GALLON AT M'ARTHL'H BROTHERS. It AVATCH FOR THE NEW CHASE TRUCKS. (Advertisement.) tf One of the most successful and pop ular reaJty operators in this section is F. AV. Shedd of the Greene and I i Griffin company"s force who handles the out of town property for this big concern. Recently Mr. Shedd has been most successful in his endeavors to sell improved ranches to newcomers who desire improved property for the purimce of starting right in being' Arizonians. I One of the notable sales was that to R. B. Marlett of Corona, Calif., who i purchased from the A'alley Bank the' 160 acres in the northwest quarter of section twenty-nine two and a half miles north of Glendale. The ranch is one of the best improved alfalfa pro- perties recently sold. Its value is said to be in advance of $24,400 which is approximately what it brought on' the market. I Mr. Marlett is an experienced cattle and hog raiser and intends to embark in the business in this valley. He thinks that the chances for making the alfalfa fields pay in return for pasturage instead of the other means of remuneration are exceedingly good and intends to give the proposition a thorough trial. j An other splendid sale made by Mr. Shedd, was the purchase by AVilliam Whitfield of sixty acres on Northern avenue nine miles from Phoenix for I $12,0(io. Mr. Whitfield expects to pas-' ture the land to cattle. He has con-' siderable experience in feeding and is impressed with the opportunities in this section. BURROUGHS BANNER H The banner week in the history of the operations of the T. M. Bur roughs company closed yesterday with a record number of sales, amounting to $!)2,000. This natur ally involved quite a large number of different transactions. Many of these were sales of houses and lots within the city, while some of thy others were transactions Involving fuim and ranch valley land. Early in the week Mr. Burroughs sold to C. P Pitret, a contractor and builder, eleven lots. Mr. Pitret an nounces that he will begin building at once and expects to erect on this property homes which he will put on the market. To M. Ellingson of Tempe, a two story double-apartment house at 114 East Roosevelt street, was disposed of. Mr. Ellingson's idea is invest ment. In a deal with E. J. Flumerfelt- of Tempe, the two-story concrete double house at 1300 AVest Adams; two story house at 1306 AVest Adams; two six-room bungalows in the 1400 block on A"est Adams, were part of the consideration given for the splen did 173-ocre ranch of Mr. Flumer felt on the south side. Thirteen and one-half acres oppo site Bella A'ista Place were sold to Murphy & Irvin, which will be im proved.
