THIRD YEAR, NO. 35 FRIDAY, MARCH 31, 1961 WELCOME. KAPPA MEN Welcome delegates to the fourteenth west ern provincial convention of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity! The Arizona Tribune is proud to join members of your host , the Phoenix Alumni chapter , as you participate in activit ies scheduled from March 31 through April 2 . Phoenix, the capital of one of the fastest growing states in the country, is located in the center oftheSalt River Valley. It and sur rounding towns are often dubbed, “The Valley of the Sun”. You can readily understand this nickname, when you see and feel the won derful sunshine which through the miracle of irrigation has made this one of the best agricultural regions in the West. Our sunshine score was 84 per cent last year. Its elevation is 1080 feet. Beautiful mountains surround our fair city which was titled “The Cleanest City in America” by John Gunther. Look Magazine pres ented it with an All-America City award last year, to add to its plau dits. Visitors from near and far come here and our Sky Harbor Airport is one of the busiest in the natin. This modern oasis is easily accessible by car, bus or train. Ma jor transportation lines connect it with points east, west, north or south. Many visitors have returned or have never gone home be cause they found desert life magnetic. Latest census figures list the city’s population at 429,000. Phoe nix serves as Maricopa County seat. Greater Phoenix encompasses an additional 11,000 persons. We are proud of Phoenix because persons of many races, national origins and creeds have cooperated to solve some of their problems. Through the efforts of local restaurant, hotel and motel owners, patrons are accepted without discrimination. In this city you will see the evidences of the progressive spirit of several Negro businessmen. You must ride out on the southside and see the outstanding housing development, Park South at 18th and E. r Roeser Rd., which contains some of the most modern homes in the Southwest. These homes were built by the Williams and Jones Con struction Company. The Midtown Medical Center, located at 12th and E, Washington, developed by Dr. Lowell C, Wormley provides the latest facilities for three physicians, a dentist, a pharmacy, and a restaurant. These exanples don’t present the whole picture, but you can see that Phoenix is moving fast. We are glad you came. Stop in for a longer visit, next time. RACE RELATIONS DIARY NEW YORK CITY.
