TED HEALY Owner and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application Subscription rates $2.50 per year COMING INTO OUR OWN That the small town and communities are coming inlo their own is evidenced by the recent census reports. Many large cities failed to show increased population in the past ten year period but the suburban districts show remark able increases as a whole. Thus the prophesy of the wise city prophet to the effect that the small town is passing seems to have been exploded. Commenting along this line George M. Crowson, assistant vice-president of the Illinois Central railroad says: “In the first place, the small town has become a far more attractive place in which to live than it used to be. I mentioned a while ago that men have been attracted to the cities by their superior advant?ges culturally and socially, as well as industrially. These advantages have been ma terially lessened in recent years. Within the last genera- • tion rural isolation has been virtually destroyed. Just about everybody now lives out on the highway of life. The small town and country people can enjoy practically all the conveniencies of the city. They are in touch with everything worth seeing and hearing. There has been an immense—an almost immeasureable—enrichment in coun try life. I need not prove such a statement; you all know it to be a fact. This transformation has made the small town more attractive to industry by making it more attract ive to industrial workers. In the second place, we have the pressure of economic necessity making for relocation of industry. Accident placed most industries where they are. Some have pros pered in their environment; others are finding themselves out of place and at a distinct disadvantage under present day conditions. One of the principal reasons for reloca tion is to meet the increased tempo of modern times. This new tempo of American life is demanding responsiveness in industry. It must be nearer its sources of raw materials and its consuming markets. It must keep inventoried at a minimum. It must be ready to meet changing needs, new styles, new habits—not next year, but almost over night.” —Buckeye Times. Seventy-five days more and it will be emancipation day for many office seekers—freedom from worrying' about having to hold office for the next two years. WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT IT? All over the state candidates for the legislature, sen ators and representatives, are declaring that they are against House Bill 127, passed by the last legislature and signed by the governor. With the exception of the candi dates who served in the last term we question whethei a great many of these candidates know the workings of House Bill 127, or what happened in its administration, which has caused such a rumpus against it. A few days past a lady in business in Phoenix was requested on three different occasions to vote for certain candidates for the legislature and in each instance the solicitor put up a strong plea for a vote on the strength that his or her candi date was against the bill which discriminated between the rich and the poor. No further explanations Finally along came a candidate running for a county office. The lady asked him if he was against House Bill 127? The gentle man stated that he had given the matter some of his time in an endeavor to learn all he could about it, altho it had no bearing on the duties of the office for which he was running. He said: “This bill was intended, as near as I can understand it, for a scientific and just appraisement of property all over the state. A certain amount of money was appropriated to accomplish the work, and the money ran out as money appropriated by legislatures has a haoit of running out, before work is finished. According to re port this scientific plan has worked out in other states, and if the special appraisers have money enough for sal aries, and work long enough and consistantly enough, and have the co-operation of the county assessors and state tax commission, who ought to be able to handle the mat ter without the assistance of high-salaried scientists, Ari zona may in time give a favorable report about its effect hei e. This tax business is a hard game. If we have : property, whether rich or poor, it makes us spend some of the da\ time and some of the night time, thinking about it. I would rather have the supervisors, assessors and state tax commission do the thinking. That’s what they get paid for, but if the majority of the people are for science, and science will lower my taxes, lam for it. I would ad \ise you, lady, though , that the next time a candidate foi the legislature, or solicitor for the candidate comes in, ask for a copy of the bill, and a written report of what, l anything, has been accomplished towards getting adjust ment. If they are against it they ought to be able to prove the why and wherefor.’’ This candidate secured a vote. COOLIDGE has the soil, and the sun with the right degree of heat. To complete a glorious trinity, all that was needed was water. That is now flowing thru canals that receive their supply from the great Coolidge Dam. IT IS a great blessing to have the forces of nature so nicely combined to produce wonderful crops as they are in this section of Arizona. I i THE shortage of houses to live in presents a grand opportunity for profitable investment in this town. Here it is almost mid-sumner, and people daily seeking homes. A FEW retired capitalists with a desire to invest two or three hundred thousand dollars in a place where there is a guarantee of safe returns, would have to travel a long ways before they could find a better place than Coolidge. LOOK the town over, size up the activity here, take a trip out into the country and investigate what makes this town tick, and then plant out a f ewmoney bushes in the way of investments. This plan is worth while. INFORMATION COUNTY OFFCIALS Court House in Florence SHERIFF —Walter Laveen. TREASURER—AIva L. Weaver COUNTY ATTORNEY— Ernest W. McFarland. | SUPERIOR JUDGE—E. L.
