THE ARIZONA KEPUBLIUAN, WEDNESDAY MOANING, JANUARY 19, 1921'
PAGE FIVE SAYS SOULEI NOTTOBESOLff BY SEGREGATION After Brief Delay, Building In Phoenix Given Sudden Impetus W. C. T. TJ. President Shocked at Suggestion Insists Men, Too, Should Be Placed In "Red Light" District Declaring that a segregated distrltct will not correct the social evil, Mrs. Imogene La Chance, president of the "VV. C. T. U., said yesterday that uch a recommendation. In her. opinion, was as logical as the segregation of mur derer and thieves with permission to V'J uieir imug u. ji uict i iuh s'"s under crime, Mrs. La Chance, who has been at the head of the state union for a num ber of years. Is recognized as on of the lead In reformers of Arizona. She was ono of the many who attended the mass meeting Sunday afternoon when moral conditions of the city were dis cussed. ,-I was gratified at some of the state ments made by Judge Stanford, but greatly shocked when he recommended a segregated district for the scarlet woman," said Mrs. La Chance in f peak ing of the address by Judge Stanford, the principal speaker Of the afternoon. "Woman cannot carry on this evil alone. How about the man Shall be be free to go and come, to ruin our girls and demoralize o ir young men? Shall we banish the ruined Kirls to the red light district while the men go free? Hod lorbld." "Cannot Rtgulate Evil" 'Mrs. La Chance believes that If such a district be establfshcd the men should bo segregated also. "If our boys go wrong, do we want them segregated or placd beyond the pale of decency? Yet we would put our girla away beyond all hope either in this world of the next," Evils cannot be regulated but must be starnpted out, according to Mrs. La Chance. "The segregated or red light district will not prevent procurers and proc uress from plying, their frade. Shall we give the white slave traffic protec tion and regulate and foster an evil that God expects us to wipe out. It must not b regulated or licensed. It must be stamped out anil tba AW C. T. I'.,iwlll educate ami uaitate until the standard of white lifo for man as well h woman Is reoognlaed and demanded In the constitution of our land." o P.uilding in Phoenix received a sud on imwtu yesterday when 13 per mits were granted at the office of the city building inspector. This is the largest number of permits issued in a single day for several montns. in commenting upon the signs or re newed building activity, U. u. -Martin, Inspector, said: ' "With prices of lumber and other building materials falling, there is e-ery reason to believe that an exten sive program of constructive work will be started In Phoenix Immediately. There in no reason for the prospective builder to wait longer. Prices have become fairly stabilized and, there Is a pressing demand for homes and busi ness buildings here." This view is shared by local archi tects, who expressed confidence that construction work Iiere had suffered only temporary stagnation. The city's reconstruction program, they pointed out, gained considerable momentum high price 'level last year and was in run blast wnen the shutdown came, leaving much proposed work un finished. - Mr. Martin called attention to recent statistics which show that the nation Is today more than $4. 000, 000, 000 under built and that In order to meet this deficit an Intensive building campaign must be carried on for the next 26 months. He estimated that at the present time Phoenix was demanding; at least 500 new homes in addition to new buildings in which to house the business of the city. Conditions, generally, are favorable to Increased activity rather than to curtailment, the architects pointed out. saying that a resumption of the broad construction program, initiated early last year, can be expected almost any time. Financial conditions alone are r? i sponsible for present conditions in building circles, it was stated. A slight improvement in flnancl.il circles has been noted within the past ten days, this improvement undoubtedly being partially responsible for the slight in crease in activity here. There is every rison to believe that once financial conditions resume normal, the con struction program wll; go forward at a pace that surpasses anything here tofore in the city's history. Coots of bnlldlng materials are ap proximately 23 per cent lower now than a year ago' and the tendency of the market Is downward, they pointed out. Another Important factor is the labor situation. Iabor Is far more plentiful now than at any time last year. Dur Ing the rush last year labor was at a premium, with few men to be had at any price. H UALTY M S SECURITIES Kl. IS 1 More than a million dollars' worth of construction work will be done in Phoenix before the end of 1921 if fi nancial conditions resume anything ap proximating normal," one o'f the archi tects said yesterday.

It is hard to say at this date Just what the buying power of a dollar will be In Phoenix on Suburban day, but it will undoubtedly be several times greater than It was a year ago or even a few weeks ago. Realizing that the cotton situation has prevented the growers from buying normally, the merchants have gone much further In their endeavors to per mit the farmers to provide for their needs than seemn compatible with what Is generally accepted as good merchandising. These endeavors, how ever, are thoroughly appreciated by the dwellers In the rural districts, and many dollars which formerly went to the mail order houses are now coming Into the business houses of Phoenix.
