Mrs. Ana Frohmiller
State Auditor Ana Froh
miller today announced that
she is a candidate to succeed
herself. The announcement
has been expected. Ana
Frohmiller has occupied the
office of state auditor three
and one-half years, the only
woman who has served the
state in that capaacitv, and
during that period the de
partment has made an envi
able record. Exceptionally
well equipped by education
and exprience, this capable
officer has made good use
of her accomplishments.
The office has been con
ducted in the most business
like and efficient manner.
Ana Frohmiller is a pio
neer Aiizouan, and has re
sided in Maricopa and Coco
nino counties. After receiv
ing her school training, her
experience as an accountant
began with one of the well
known industrial concerns
of Phoenix. She served with
this concern five years.
After moving to Coconino
county she served in a. simi
lar capaciy with a large firm
in Flagstaff for five years.
Her business capacity then
being recognized in a public
way she was twiice elected
to the office of county treas
urer of Coconino county. As
attesting her popularity it
might be mentioned that
whether on the state or
county ticket, she has on
every occasion led the ticket
in Coconino county- Follow
ing her two terms as county
treasurer, Ana Frohmiller
was elected s f ate auditor.
Mrs. Frohmiller is an ac
tive member of the Ameri
can Legion, The Woman’s
Club of Phoenix, and the
Business and Professional
Women’s Club, having serv
ed as the organizer and First
President of the later organ
ization in Flagstaff.
As state auditor Mrs.
Frohmiller has added to her
previous thorough training
the acquirement of an inti
mate knowledge of the af
fairs of the state land board.
Having been a resident of
Coconino county where so
many of the state’s ranches
are located, she is thorough
ly conversant with the exist
ing land problems and this
experience is invaluable in
state land board hearings
Mrs. Frohmiller’s friends
in the state feel that Ari
zona can ill afford to be
deprived of the knowledge
and experience which she
has acquired as a member of
the state land board, her
familiarity with state land
conditions and her thorough
ness and competency in ac
countancy, confidently look
forward to her renomination
and election.

“Over There” is a field where poppies grow,
And they call it Flanders’ Field,
Where crosses—white
In the hush of night,
Stand like guards with buckled shield.
They watch o’er the brave who sleep there today,
’Neath a gleaming carpet of red,
And the world walks by,
With a tear and sigh
And whispers, “They are our dead.’’
There are hearts today—in our land of the free,
Who will mourn and remember anew, ■
How the cause of Right
Led our boys to fight—
To die for the red, white and blue.
We grieve with you, dear ones, who gave the most,
When we think of those you have lost.
Though the years drift away,
We know you, today,
Are silently counting the cost.

of the chystals, applied di

reduce losses to a minimum.
The story of a community’s prosperity, and
chances of future advancement, is best illustrated by
what comes und 3r observation on a look over town
and back country. That is where Coolidge presents
proof of a remarkable growth, and conclusive evidence
that it will continue to expand with increasing rapid
ity. Residents of this place have become accustomed
to seeing new edifices in the course of construction,
and hearing of new leases made, new buildings plan
ned, farms improved, and general activity prevailing,
it is to the visitor that the fact strikes forcibly that a
big town is in the making.
Where this time of year usually finds an almost
complete slow down in activities Coolidge has to offer
a continuous program of expansion.
