Industries are coming to the Val

industries profitable. We cannot
expect, or if we do expect we are
open to disappointment any man or
any company to enter business
where be cannot see a profit
• • •
The mere fact that new indus
tries are daily coming to every city
in the Valley is evidence enough
that the men managmg these in

not come from any community sot

COMMEMORATING trie name of
the late Fred C- Booth by engraving
it on one of the San Benito public
schools will serve to remind count
less hundreds of school children of
the present and future of the life
of that man who did so much for
the public school system of the Re
*aca City and who left ins imprint
on every pha.~* of the civic life of
that city.
• • •
The naming of schools, parks and
other public places after Valley
men who have gone ahead is a most
praiseworthy idea and one which
should endear itself to the public
authorities of our city, school and
county entities. In years to come
our residents will be able to read
and learn ihnr civic and Valley
history from our public buildings
