Upton Oil Company EXTENSIVELY FROM VALLEY PRODUCERS Of a total amount of almost $18," 000 in purchases made in Arizona in 1920 by the Phelps-Dodge MercantiU company, a brench of the Phelps-, Dodge corporation of which the Cop per Queen Mining company at Bis- bee and its allied industries are the most important part, more than $40,- j 000 worth were made in the Salt River valley, according to a report reaching here yesterday. The exact amount of the purchases made by the companj tn the state is $179,975.05, which gives some idea of the importance of the home mar ket to the agricultural industry" of Arizona. These purchases were dis tributed all over the producing sec tions of central and southern Ari zona and were consumed mainly in Arizona, although the Phelps-Dodge Mercantile company , opera 1 03 two stores in New Mexico as well as sup plying the districts of Morenci, Doug las and Bisbee in this state. The produce of Arizona farms, ranches and dairies that has in this way. found a market, includes such crops as hay, barley, wheat, oranges, fruits and vegetables. The cotton industry is represented by cotton seed meal and the dairy industry by canned milk. Butter, eggs, poultry and fresh meat also go to swell the total. The list, therefore, includes practically every class of goods pro duced in Arizona in a form ready for the ultimate consumer. Purchases from the Salt River val ley amounted to $41,701. Purchases in the Duncan valley came to $16. 781, and shipments ranging between these two figures came from the Sul phur Springs, Gila and San Pedro valleys. In addition to the produce assigned to some particular valley, other purchases made in the state amounted to more than $22,000. . Shipments in carload lots originat ing in Arizona totaled 108 cars, which is approximately one-sixth of all the carload shipments bought by the Phelps-Dodge Mercantile company during the year. The shipments in less than carload lots had an aggre gate value greater than the total value of all the c arload purchaess. Among the articles handled in car load lots, hay is the bulkiest and has a value of between $300 and $400 a car. while canned milk is valued at more than $4,000 to the carload. 0 TELLS REALTORS OF PLAN TO ADVERTISE SALT RIVER VALLEY Methods of advertising the Salt River valley where results will be ssured were explained to members of the Maricopa County Realty board by Harry Welch, secretary of the chamber of commerce, and others at the realty board's bi-weekly lun cheon at the Grand cafe yesterday noon. Mr. Welch told the realtors that he did not believe the suggestion for a booster special was either feasible or practicable at the present time. He gained this opinion, he said, after a talk with C. R. Seagraves, coloniza tion expert of the Santa Fe railroad. 'It will not bring suifficient results to warrant the tremendous expendi tures involved," he declared. Conditions in the valley are more mental . than physical, he told the realtors. "Pessimism has gained a foothold among some of the business men and farmers, with a result that these people are making conditions more serious tor tnemseives tnan actual conditions justify, he said. "In this day, we must maintain our optimism and confidence in the val ley's future. J. C. Dobbins, another speaker, sug gested a booster special to the grape districts of California. He told of the interest being shown by California growers In the valley and gave it as his opinion that through a well laid plan of campaign, immediate results could be obtained from that direction. Fred Myers, acting advertising manager of The Arizona Republican, advocated an advertising campaign in eastern newspapers, similar to campaigns waged by California cities and communities. Climate, soil and housing facilities could be used ad vantageously in such a campaign, he said. A. W. Flickinger of the FUckinger and Dibble realty firm was chairman of the day. The attendant was un usually good, being the largest in weeks. o Phoenix Armory Will Do Much For Young Manhood of Valley Whether he belongs to the national guard or not, the question of national preparedness, of which the need of an armory in Phoenix is a small but im portant factor, has a direct interest for your boy, since in the unfortunate event of another war he would prob ably either enlist or be drafted. The government is depending to a great extent on the national guard to form the backbone of any large army which might be needed in the future, and many of the leaders of such an army are now being developed in the guard. For instance, at the present time two officers of the national guard of Arizona stationed in Phoe nix are at the infantry school at Camp Benning. Ga., taking a course which is intended to make them in structors for the other guardsmen. both officers and men. These offi cers will be responsible for the train ing, either directly or through other future officers, of your boy and your neighbor's boy should it become nec essary to raise another national army, and while it is to be hoped that such an emergency will not arise, there is always the possibility of it, particu larly with the world in its present state of unrest. Here at the infantry school we have the opportunity of studying in detail the past great war. and noting the mistakes of same. One of the great est and saddest mistakes was un questionably our lack of preparad ness and the lack of proper training of "the officers. It is a fact that thousands of American boys are now udder the sod in France who would be alive had their leaders been com petent. The average man under the horrible conditions or modern war ware is practically helpless unless he has undergone a period of training, and knows how to take care of him self and to teach his men to take care of themselves. Without an armory it is absolutely impossible to properly train the men TUCSON ESTABLISHES IUT0 CI PARK of the national guard, and remember that the men who are now in train ing may be the future leaders who will be responsible for the, safety of your boy. - An armory is a big help to the young men of Phoenix, either your boy if he belongs to the national guard or your neighbor's boy, in that it gives him a place where he can spend his spare time with decent man-building amusements and recre ations instead of loafing on the street or patronizing the many questionable resorts that appeal to boys when they have no belter place to go. The armory will be under the direct super vision of a commissioned officer wh.oe duty it w-lll be to see that everybody conducts himself as a gentleman, and that no questionable persons or pur suits are allowed therein. On the contrary, clean athletics, learning to shoot and to handle dangerous weap ons in such a way as to render them safe, and amusements which will build up his body and mind will be found there. It is not by any means stretching the imagination unduly to say that it is entirely possible that a vote for the armory bonds will mean at some future date the safety of -your boy or some other Phoenix boy. If even one competent leader were to be developed and the lives of only 20 Phoenix boys therefore saved, the cost would be cheap and the units already formed or else proposed for Phoenix wiu mean about 300. men in training. If all of the people who are' in favor of the bonds would turn out and vote there would be no question of the result, but usually at a bond election those who are opposed all vote, and the others do not take the trouble to go to the polls. Will you vote and ask your neighbor to do so? Phone company headquarters. 1793. or the adjutant general's office, 1491. and a machine will call for you, and remem ber the date. May 27.

"I couldn't get there on account of the street car strike. Them street car men ain't got no consideration for the public."" Passing Show. For the convenience of tourists passing through the Old Pueblo, a fully equipped camping park for tourists has been thrown open at Tucson, according to word received by the chamber of commerce yester day from A H. Condion. secretary of the industrial bureau of the Tuc son organization. A complete de scription of the nark is carried in the following letter: "This is to announce to you and the motoring public that a fully equipped auto camping park has been thrown open for the conveni ence of tourists goiiib through Tuc son. "This park is said to be the finest in the southwest, having all the fa cilities for making it pleasurable and convenient a place for stop overs. There is a commissary on the ground that is under bond not to sell any thing over the price charged for the same article in the local stores; a club room and reading room is al the disposal of all campers, and there Rre showers, wash looms with sta tionary tubs, open air cooking stoves, electric light and running waten. A deputized parK superintendent offers police protection to all campers at all times, and posted camping rules ask ing the. campers to do their share in keeping the grounds In the best of condition were adopted from those rules meeting with the most success in other public auto camping parks.

ALL WEST WATCHING TO SEE OUTCOME OF BOND ELECTION HERE ALLEGED MURDERER 1 AT MEXICM Xjews of civic Improvement carries far. It is safely estimated that every city of any Import in the West will be Informed as to whether the Phoenix bonds carried.. Is Phoenix going ahead or will she stand still? To stand still means a decline, and let it npt be said that Phoenix is on the decline. The program of roads is known throughout the United States. At least one publication of national im portance carried illustrations of Mar icopa county's road-building pro gram which was characterized as "The biggest road Job ever under taken anywhere," etc. This sounds good to investors, and investors are what Phoenix must have. She has the land, the climate, the location and every other desirable feature of a prosperous community it has the most important features, water and a wonderful system of supply, almost inexhaustible so let it prove to pub lic opinion, that it is in the land of success, the land where people do things, the land of opportunity. When these bonds carry, and they will carry, it will be an almost Irrl- sistible drawing power that will mean millions of dollars to the Sat River valley. Friday, May 27, is the day and date when Phoenix citizens will be given the opportunity to say whether thev will stand still or go ahead with much-needed improvement. The total cost of the program is $465,000. which will react within 60 or 90 days di rectly on tfce community in the shape of real money of which every indi vidual will benefit. The small cost i of '62 cents on each $1,000 of taxable property cannot be compared to the return the city will receive by the voting of these bonds. Kach item is worthy. Each item is needed. All civic bodies are interest ed and have contemplated on this issue for months beforehand. Do not simply hope that these bonds will be j voted, but show your interest in your I community and make the effort to' be i at the polling place on next Friday. Should you have no way of getting j to the polling place, call the cham- 1 bvr of commerce, telephone 1294, and I ) a car will be at your immediate dis posal. 1 Dario Cabrero, wanted In Turn county on the charge of murder, it being held at Mexioali according t word received yesterday by Actin Governor Ernest Hall from Sherifl Polhemus of Tuma county.

It Is understood that ar rangements are under vway whei Chavez, who is alleged to have con fessed to the murder of Jess Fisher, will be brought back to the United States to stand trial. MM R CROPS ADD E TO VALLEY ACREAGE From figures now available, it seems probable that the acreage of summer crops In the Salt River val-r ley will be considerably larger than last year. Among the most popular of these crops is the comparatively new forage crop known as "sudan grass." The chamber of commerce has ob tained a number of copies of bulletin Xo. J126. entitled "Sudan Grass." Much valuable information relative to the culture of this crop, pasturing, and hay making is contained in this bulletin. Copies may be obtained free as long as the supply lasts. o-l Watch Wednesday morning's paper for Wolman's big reduction sale on used cars. Adv.

T. Bush of Bush's Ferry and Freight company, Parker: "You have no doubt been notified that the Blythe ferry is out on ac count of high water. "This is to notify you that the Par ker ferry is still at the service of those wishing to cross the Colorado river, and unless something worse than has happened for the past six years happens this summer, we will be on the job every day from daylight until dark. We live on the ferry, so that if we are not awake when you want to cross, just awaken us and we will be at your service if It is light enough to run the ferry. "We are equipped w-itta the large power boat '.Nellie T.,' accommo dating four cars at a time, so there is little or no waiting at the river. "The county has a truck on the roa"d between Wickenburg and Parker working on the road and we hope it will be maintained well for the tour ist's benefit this summer. . "About 30 cars per day are now going this way and the road is well signed; some come via Buckeye and some via Wickenburg. . We are not prepared at this time to say which route is the better as the travel seems to be about evenly divided and we have not been over the roads in the past three months." o AR ZONA M JON M MN T CAMPBELL PREDICTS FAVORABLE REPORT The Irrigation committee of the senate will report favorably on the Colorado River Basin bill today, ac cording to Governor Thomas E. Campbell. This was the message re ceived last evening by the governor's seertary, Henri Behoteguy. That the senate is not losing a moment is indicated by the wire. The bill was introduced only yesterday by Senator Bursum of Xew Mexico. It provides that federal commission ers serve on the commission formed of representatives from the seven western states to determine the rights of the states to the waters of the Colorado and its tributaries. Governor Campbell also stated in his telegram that he was dispatch ing other matters of interest to Ari zona with success. Today he will .. i- . . j. . 1 V- committee with particular reference to conditions at Fort Whipple and Tucson and will take up a number of individual cases. He indicated in his wire that his work in the east would be completed shortly, which will time his return to Arizona, the latter part of the month. Whether the corporation commis sion is to join the Yuma Ice, Electric and Manufacturing company in a qjnurt action against the Southern Sierras Power company, has not been determined, but in view of the state's interest it is probable that the step will be taken. J. B. Dunbar, repre senting the Yuma concern, was in Phoenix yesterday and said that the substitute rate submitted by the California company was not accept able. The offer was made after the company's rejection of a rate agree able to engineers representing the commissions of Arizona and Califor nia and the 1 uma psrtrons. The commission holds that it has a right to intervene in view of- the state's interests, including the univer sity date palm orchard and a citrus experimental station, which will be affected by the increase in rates. The raise in rates was not taken into con sideration when the corporation com mission asked for its appropriation from the legislature, it Is claimed. The power furnished Yuma from the California side is used extensively and if the raise in rate stands will make reclamation of the mesa pro hibitive.

Mr. Carver enlightened the ways and means committee of congress and incidentally asked for a little "protection" on the products of southern soil. Said Mr. Carver, "Here is a bottle of mock oysters. Here is a bottle of relish for the oysters, made from peanuts. Pea- ! nuts make fine cereal coffee. The ! sweet potato products number 107 I up to date. 1 have not finished ! working with them."

The announcement that state institutions would allow their employes only two weeks on pay during the vacation period caused genuine alarm among the pretty girl stenographers of the dif ferent departments of state who had already counted on a month on the coast with a full size month's check to see them through. Cheer has been re-established by the announcement that the efficiency plan of two weeks will hold only In the offices directly under jurisdic tion of the board of directors of state institutions. As one gallant boss said: "Do you think I would permit a woman to work for me during a Ioiir hot summer without a month on pay?" And so say all of them. Those who have worked for the state a year will receive one month on pay. while those who have worked in a state department six months will be given two weeks.

How film ruins teeth Film dims the teeth's luster. It also forms the basis of tartar. It holds food substance which ferments and forms acid. It holds the acid in contact with the teeth to cause decay. Millions of germs breed in it. They, with tartar, are the chief cause of pyorrhea. Many other serious troubles, local and internal, are now traced to them. Countless people find that teeth brushed -daily still discolor and decay. The main rea son lies in that film.
