BERLIN, Hay 1. "I'm :i million

of the Deutsche bank gave him a
bale of marks in exchange for a few
American dollars. The champion

shopping tour which wound .up with
the purchase of a police dog, jewelry
opera glasses and an assortment of
other souvenirs. Germans who shook

The Kirkland Cowboys were de
feated in a whipping finish by the
Prescott Buckaroos Sunday at the
valley town. Until the seventh in
ning the game slipped 'along easily
with Prescott always about a run
to the good. Then with two down
and the sacks densely populated,
Kirkland got ahold of one of the
straight ones and went ahead, 11 to 8
as the home-runner crossed the bag.
But the Buckaroos, despite the
perfectly unique rooting section of
home folks, pulled out of the hole
and wound up with a score of 16 to

Secretary Wallace of Agriculture
Department Reviews past and
Present Conditions in the Field
of the Farm.
PHOEXIX, May 1 Arizona farm
ers are among the most progressive
in the country in seeing that the fu
ture welfare of agriculture demands
co-operation with other industries, in
the opinion of officials of the Ari
zona Farm Bureau Federation, whose
attention was called to an article in
the April "Farm and Fireside" by
Henry C. Wallace, secretary of agri
culture. Mr. Wallace, after reviewing the
past and present conditions in agri
culture, in discussing the industry's
future, had the following to say in
regard to co-operation:
"In short, we have come to the
time when team work is needed; yes,
imperatively. There must be sym
pathy, understanding; and co-operation
between agriculture, industry and
business. They are alike necessary
to a well rounded national life. They
must work together for the good of
all." -
A few paragraphs later Secretary
Wallace says:
"Without meaning that they shall
be all- inclusive, I venture to suggest
certain things that ought to be done
to foster our agriculture, not for the
selfish benefit of the farmer, but for
the benefit of all the people. In
some cases legislative action will be
required; in others, administration by
government and state agencies; and
still others, co-operation both be
tween the farmers themselves and
between farmers and other groups."
Arizona farmers are perhaps the
first in the nation to actually carry
out the secretary's idea of co-operating
with industry and business. The
Arizona Farm Bureau is included in
the Arizona Industrial congress,
through which its members arc
working with all other branches of
industry and business in the state to
advance the common interests of all
by co-operation. The results already
obtained have proved that Secretary
Wallace is correct in saying that the
future welfare of all demands co
operation between agriculture, indus
try and business.
Aside from this there is but little
of interest to- report, as practically
no development work is in progress
and no construction work is going
on or at present contemplated.

Cattlemen with Permits to Graze
Seek Protection of Interests in
Organization Separate From
Cattle Association.
(From Tuesday's Daily)
In the offing and due to arrive
among realities within the next few
months is a forest states cattle grow
ers' protective association.
Completion of the preliminary work
of forming a society of permittees
on forest lands at Phoenix last Sat
urday night, was announced here
yesterday by Harry Knight, president
of the Yavapai Cattle Growers' as
sociation, who attended a meeting of
representative stockmen from all over
the state. The organization of a cor
poration with one share of stock each
for the 1,600 livestock raisers who
hold permits to graze their herds and
flocks on natioual forest lands, will
be completed with the permanent of
ficers selected at a meeting to be
held in Prescott on one of the four
days of the Frontier week this year.
Charles P. Mullen of this county
was made chairman of the temporary
organization, F. S. Hildreth is sec
retary and Harry Kay is treasurer.
A representative of the permittees
will be stationed in Washington
under a salary to form a channel of
communication between the cattle
men and the government, Mr. Knight
said. The complaint of the cattle
men is that of suffering from reduc
tions in grazing permits and failure
to reach any authorities in -the forest
service to whom appeals can be
Judge Shute of Gila county, who
spoke before the preliminary meeting
at Phoenix, is mentioned as a pos
sible candidate for the office of of
fical representative at Washington.
Judge Shute is wisejn the ways of
the cattle business, having been in
it for years, aud in -addition is said
to be qualified for the post by reason
of his legal and political knowledge.
New Mexico stockmen who attend
ed the Phoenix meeting declared that
that state would soon follow the ex
ample of Arizona, and with this en
couragement, the organizers began toj
dream of an interstate association to !
cover all the forested areas.
"The .state cattle growers' associa-'l
tlcir hai- ttCtfii-JiJnlutv-':lon7eat "trier
band," Knight said, "b,ut we feel that
there should be a separate organiza
tion of forest land users, with a
special mission. And this is it."
The inspiration for the new asso
ciation came at the Globe cattlemen's
meeting, and the mid-year conven-1
tion of the association here in July
will undoubtedly witness the perm
anent organization.

Radio has nothing on the human
bean for broadcasting, according to
E. J. Samson, food expert, who talk
ed to the Rotary club yesterday on
the chcmistr3- of eating. In ten min
utes he had the Rotarians wondering
why they did not explode like a
depth bomb from some of the high
powered articles of diet the ordinary
human being installs.
The senses, the speaker declared,
convey to the stomach the warning
of food and tummy proceeds to pro
vide the proper secretions to handle
the affair. Success in life is rather
closely mingled with correct eating,
too,, for, as one writer said, back of
every example of inefficiency is an
example of indigestion.

PHOENIX, May 1. "I am here
to force an issue on the matter of
a secret indictment which I am led
to believe by rumors and news
paper reports was returned against
me by the federal grand jury al
most a year ago." This statement
was made last night by United
States Senator Ralph H. Cameron,
who arrived yesterday from Wash
ington and immediately instituted
a probe into the affair which he
serts was never officially brought
to his attention.
F. C. Jacobs and H. L. Part
ridge, attorneys of Globe, are as
sisting him to bring the matter to
a conclusion.
' As a first step in the proceed
ings Senator Cameron with his
legal representatives went to the
office of United States Marshal
Tom Sparkes and asked if there
was a warrant there for him. He
was informed that no request for a
warrant had ever been submitted to
that office.
The senator next went to U. S.
Commissioner John B. Hencke and
asktd that bond be arranged to
cover any proceedings which might
be taken. Although no complaint
had - been brought to the attention
of the federal commissioner, the
request was complied with and a
bond was furnished.
Summing up the situation, Sena
tor Cameron said that although he
had never been officially notified of
charges pending against him nor
given an opportunity to examine
such charges nor served with a
warrant, nor requested by any au
thority to return to the state for
any court action or other reason,
he deemed it advisable to force the
issue and bring to light any indict
ment which' may have been return
ed secretly against him.
Profilio Jiminez was arrested at
6:10 o'clock yesterday morning by
Deputy Fred Escher, who found him
conversing with prisoners from the
Montezuma street side of the plaza.
Jiminez was locked up to be held for
trial before Justice of the Peace C.

PHOENIX, April 28. The first
concerted movement to awake, the
people of Arizona to the business ad

"Your living depends on your
town; your town depends oil its
business; its. business depends on
you," is one of the .arguments vhich
is to be emphasized in' the campaign.
The future prosperity ,of every town
in the state depends on the business
that is done in that town, and to in
crease that business the general pub
lic must be shown that it is to its
own advantage to trade with, home
merchants and home 'business men.
The week of May 22-27 .vas se
lected as coming just before the sum
mer vacation period when most
people are considering buying ' goods
of some sort. While urging the
peopleto trade at home, it is planned
to have the co-operating civic or
ganizationsemphasize the fact that
to keep their home business, the
merchants and business men must
offer" prices and values as good a
may be obtained elsewhere. "-"Most
business places in the state are fol
lowing this policy, however.
At the same time the people are
being urged to. patronize their home
business houses they will be urged
to use Arizona agricultural and
manufactured products wherever pos
sible. These two things, trading at
home and using Arizona products,
go hand-in-hand in increasing the
general prosperity of the entire state.

A gcod word from an authorita

surgeon general of the United States,
has declared that the wholesome ef

disabled ex-soldiers at Fort Whipple

ant and commendable influences in
the lives of the men.
A communication from Dr. Cum

teacher of the Fellowship Bible class,
says that the head of the public
health service has always considered
the matter of spiritual instruction a
very necessary adjutant to the care
and treatment of the disabled sojdier.
Such instruction, Dr. Cumming--. con

morale of patients at a hospital and
this is extremely valuable in cases of
tuberculosis. v

apeutic value which can be claimed
for spiritual instruction," the com

work is a great one and you may be
