Owner and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application Subscription rates \ $2.50 per year AIR PORTS COME IN HANDY Whenever a new airport is established on the Ame.-- can side along the Mexican frontier, the news ot*it~ dedi cation will be welcomed by the governors of states in our sister republic. The governor's airplane, always ready for instant service, has proved a successful utility in getting the chief executive of state or city safely to American soil while his subjects are debating whether to shoot or forgive him for the brand of administration he enforces or at tempts to enforce. If his friends, by force of arms, are able to convince the chief executive’s opponents that it is safer to be peaceful and lay off wanting to shoot an olti cial out of office, it only takes a few hours to get back on the job. THE BULL AND LION > Press dispatches give news of a lion and bull fight as a feature of the July 4th celebration at Nogales, the fight, to the death, to be on the Mexican side of the line. It it is the same lion that was used in San Francisco about thirty years ago to fight Eugene Sandow, and went to sleep on the job, we bet the Mexican bull will win. We still bet the bull will win if the lion is the one that was used for twenty years to advertise Travino’s Mexican circus by roaring, under the persuasion of a club, every evening before the performance. The lion had a good strong voice, and that was about all. If the management of this lion vs. bull scrap have two good animals jn the ring, or most like ly a big cage- and nothing is faked, it is our opinion that the audience will be ready for a quick get-a-wav, provid ing either the lion or the bull, or both, take a notion to get more fighting room. To criticise the Mexicans for allow ing this kind of a fight is not to be thought of so long as the promoters in this country pull off certain classes of so called wrestling matches, unless it is to say the animals are to be pitied more. On July 12th, with polling places at the Coolidge school house and at Borree’s corner, takes place an elec tion which is probably the most important event that has occurred to the people of this community. It is the bond issue election to secure $60,000 to provide adequate school facilities for this rapidly growing community; a ten-room school house and equipment. A cafateria for the chil dren’s luncheons is also in the plans of the building. Amer ica is proud of its schools and the state of Arizona stands high in the beauty of its schools and their standing in edu cational attainment. Every citizen should consider it hi* or her duty, as a committee of one, to help get out the voters to secure this fine school housse, for we are to be judged by the interest taken in this bond election and its unanim ous approval. Schools for the children are the first con sideration and the great power of our nation finds its foun dation in good schools. , TO BENEFIT ARIZONA Arizona is one of the thirteen states which would benefit by the Oddie-Colton bill just signed by President Hoover. It authorizes federal co-operation in construction of roads through unreserved public and Indian lands. Funds authorized under the act will be available only to states which have more than five per cent of their area in non-taxable federal lands. The 11 so-called public land states that would receive the greatest benefit, and the proportion their unreserved public and Indian lands bear to total area, follow: Wash ingtofl 30.6; Oregon 45.6; California 40.7; Idaho 57.3; Nevada 84.2; Montana 30.8; Wyoming 51.8; Utah 66.3; Colorado 32.2; Arizona 66. 8 ; New Mexico 37.7. South Dakota and Oklahoma would also benefit. The act carries no authorizations for this year, but Senator Oddie, Nevada, co-author, said annual authoriza tion of at least $3,500 000 would be asked for at the next session. He explained that the money would be used on federal highways crossing the unreserved public and In dian lands. Arizona has a large area and comparatively .small pop ulation. So a considerable proportion of the state is public land that it is only fair assistance should be given by the federal government in providing such districts with good roads. Nevada will get the largest proportional benefit, with Arizona next. It is to be hoped California will not be vexed at such aid being extended to Arizona and try to take it from us.—Phoenix Gazette.

Asbestos Is a mineral of a curious fibrous structure. It Is used In mak ing gas mantles, furnace linings, heat resisting mats, and so on, and Is largely handled by women. The Inhalation of dust gives rise to symptoms In some of the work ers after about five years. They be gin to get short of breath on exer tion, lose weight and develop a dry cough. If the cases are seen early end prevented from being irritated by dust, much relief can be ob tained by treatment. Many Ex-President* Between March 4, 1861, when Abraham Lincoln took oath of office as President, and January 18, 1862, when John Tyler died, there were five living el-Presidents of the United States, a greater number than at any other period In Ameri can history. They were Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, Millard Fil more, Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan. The great number of living ex-Presldents at that period was due largely to the fact that no President elected between the election of Van Buren In 1836 and the election of Lincoln in 1860 served for a longer period than four years. The Doctor Ordered Ice " Food stuffs, the doctor says, need perfect refrigeration constantly!*— not merely in May, June, July and August- but in the other months as t well. * Hence, a daily supply of pure ICE is “just what the doctor ordered!” V I Your Ice Utility - _| «— ini —S 11 1 ■ "Voice*” of Snake* No snake has a voice In the gen erally accepted sense of that term as applied to animals and human beings, says an article In Pathfind er Magazine. Naturalists do not credit the reports of snakes that bleat like a deer, purr like a cat, cough like a monkey, or make other vocal sounds. Some species of snakes, such ns the boa constrictors, pythons and the little American pulling adders, are able to make a hissing noise, which is produced by the air rushing from the throat when the lungs are deflated. This, according to the Smithsonian Insti tution, is the only “voice” possessed by snakes. Rattlesnakes make the rattling noises by vibrating the tips j of their tails. Popular Proverb A proverb that seems to have run the gamut of all nations is, “It is too late to shut the stable door when the horse is stolen.” The English, the French, the ; Dutch, the Danes, the Italinns, and j even the Hindus have applied this old truth, and have made it a part of their language. “It is too late j to cover the well when the chlldj is drowned,” say the Danes. “The bird cries out too late when It is taken,” is one French version; and the Japanese put it thus: “It is too late to cut a stick when the fight is over." *-LEADING» [RADIO PROGRAMS (Time given is Eastern Standard: subtract one hour for Central and twe hours for Mountain time.)
