COOLIDGE, PINAL COUNTY, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1930
That Coolidge will be in a short time the largest
town between Phoenix and Tucson, and metropolis of
this valley, is no longer predicted, but is borne out by
its present active building growth, demand for more
housing facilities, and construction planned to accom
modate business that will distribute from this point.
Coolidge is now recognized as the valley’s commercial
city, and location for fine homes.
GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO BE
LOCATED IN COOLIDGE
Thursday afternoon J. J. Jones, who hasi been in Los
Angeles on a business trip, wired to R. J. Jofces, of Cool
idge, that the U. S. government had awarded a lease and
signed the same, to the Coolidge Masonic Temple Associa
tion. The lower floor of r he Masonic Temple now being
rushed to completion, on Main street, will be occupied
after July Ist by the officials of the San Carlos Indian irri
The offices, N. W. Irsfield, engineer in charge, nave
been located in Florence for some time.
Offices of Engineer C. H. Soutliworth, in charge of
the San Carlos District offices and staff are not at pres
ent affected by the change, but will be later
Including Mr Irsfield, eight people are employed in
the offices making the move to Coolidge, and it P expected
their families will accompany them here.
ROAD BUILDERS HEADQUARTERS
Thursday The Examiner interviewed C. B. Bruce, of
Bruce Bros., who were recently awarded the contract of oil
ing and graveling the Phoenix and Tucson highway from
Coolidge 17 miles south to Picacho.
Mr. Bruce arrived here from Long Beach Tuesday. His
father, E. S. Bruce, who will be here with his son, super
vising the work, will come to Coolidge within the next two
His other son ; J. S. Bruce, will remain on the coast at
tending to the firm’s interests in California.
Today, Friday, the start of the arrival of'equipment
is expected. .Two trucks are already here, being driven
over from the coast early this week.
“Bruce Bro 3. will not maintain a camp, the men will
be quartered in Coolidge, and we expect approximately
thirty men on the force, one half of whom will be workers
living here or in this vicinity. The job will last between
three and lour months. Our contract to do the required
work was $125,000. Coolidge, being our headquarters, will
benefit accordingly.” stated Mr. Bruce.
NEW PROJECT MEANS
MUCH TO THIS TOWN
Owing to its immediate proximity to Coolidge the
development of the country adjacent to Randolph has
considerable interest. After the project became legal
last Tuesday thru the action of the Pinal Board of Su
pervisors who on that day adopted the resolution creat
ing the boundry lines of the Randolph Irrigation Dis

of the plans and specifications, and preparing of all de
tails, to place before the state certification board to
obtain formal authorization for a bond issue. The
bond issue election will then be called as soon as pos
Mr. Scott in his reports estimated the total con

Phoenix, Ariz., June 13. —Punish-

recording to Earl F. Drake, Phoe
nix attorney. i ■
“Onr penal system as a means of
reformation is a ghastly failurre, j
and the vast majority of prisoners j
are made worse bj their confine-]
iu,ent,” he said.
Drake suggests a system of pi i-!
ve.te boarding homes, where juven-j
lie delinquents can be sent, rather i
than confined in jails.
“It is better to prevent crime,
than to punish it,’’ he said.
ENDORSEMENT OF i
A county contemplating
an appropriation for a coun
ty frre librrary will doubt
lessly ask itself te questions,
Why should we estabnsr.
these lhraries? What will
' iey do for our people: ’
The first answer is this:
“A county free library will
afford the people recreation
in return for the tax expend
ed.” By far the greater part
of existing taxes go for tne
daily necessities of county
life —roads, schools, salaries
of officials, hut not one cent
for the recreation or enjoy
ment of its people. That has
made the load burdensome.
Reading affords recre
ation and pleasure. A good
story, a chatty biography, a
technical book on business or
industry, written in the en
oyable style of the day, and
the beautifully illustrated,
charmingly written stories
for children will lighten the
daily cares for all family
The old saying, “All work
and no play makes JacA a
dull hoy,” is true of the tax
situation. The free libraries
are the play to relieve the
tensity of the situation at a
.cost to the taxpayers of less
than the price of one book of
fiction per year,
A second answer is this—
“ County free libraries sup
plement the educational sys
tem.” Schools are poorly
equipped with libraries; —
splendid as are the budgets
allowed the schools, they

agricultural and mining communities of the county. Absolute impartiality
to all sections of the county.
