TOU CAN HELP THE BOY LIFE OF PHOENIX BY JOINING THE "Y THIS WEEK. MESA, Feb. 7. Thirty-five dairy men met Wednesday afternoon at the Mesa city hall to discuss the recent ruling made by State Dairy Commis sioner Barr, relative to the handling of milk. A. S. Haymore was elected chairman and Grant Laney, chairman. The discussion which was of a gen eral and informal nature, resolved it self into a motion which was carried, that the chair appoint a committee to draft an amendment to the present law and to confer with the legislature relative to securing passage of the same. As the meeting understood it, the present law comers complete and arbitrary power upon the dairy com missioner, so that violations of his rul ings become violation of the law. This, in the judgment of those present, con ferred entirely too much power upon each succeeding commissioner, and it was deemed wise to suggest to the legislature an amendment that would clearly define the requirements under which the dairymen should handle milk. The chair appointed as this com mittee. Charles Peterson, C. F. Macey and C. M. Paddock. A second committee was named. whose business it should be to prepare articles for an organization of, the dairymen of the valley. Each man present joined in the proposed or ganization, and it was suggested that the committee get in touch with any existing dairy organizations within the state and secure from them any needed. ideas or plans that may have been found successful. It was not known to those present at the meeting whether at preset there exists a dairy men's organization in the valley, and it was emphasized that in case ,such existed the one here proposed was not in opposition thereto, but in fact might be merged in to or join with said exist ing body. The one thing, the dairymen want is relief Irom what they claim to tie a ruling, portions of which they allege to be impracticable if not im possible to the average farmer. Entertains Eastern Star Officers Doubly fortunate were those women who were elected as officers of the Eastern Star at the January election since they were guests recently at the W. J.
