Fraternally John will Faris, Senior Deacon San Juan Lodge No. 25 WEAR HIS FLOWER His fixed bayonet was point ed toward the enemy. His steel helmet was tilted down over de termined eyes. An unseen ma chine gun sprayed his path with death, but he went forward for America. In a poppy-studded wheat field he fell. They buried him after the wave of battle had swept by. and poppies sprang up around his grave. His vic torious comrades, returning to America, brought memories and the poppy. On Saturday, May, 27, the men of the American Legion will ask us to wear a poppy. The women of the Auxiliary will offer us poppies on the streets and will give us an op portunity to aid the war disa bled, the widows, and the father less children. Can there be a person in Coolidge in whom the pulse of patriotism beats so low that he will refuse? He who can so soon forget the patriotic sacrifices of the past is a person from whom friends, community and country can expect little of unselfish service today or in the future.

Shearing is finished and the lambs that were not sold and shipped east are now old enough to follow their mothers on the long trek to the mountain pastures. Travel will be hard on the animals this spring, due to the fact that the continued cool weather has delayed the growth of forage and altho the driv ways are several miles wide the “pickings” are not good as usual.

Devoted to Advertising the Best Valley on Earth NUMBER 11 FORM HESS AND CIVIC ORGANIZATION A large group of leading busi ness men of Coolidge met at the Woman’s Club Building, Fri day evening, May 12, for the purpose of forming a business and civic organization to look after the needs of Coolidge and the surrounding valley. The sentiment of this enthusiastic gathering was to carefully de termine what is best and then go after it. It was the unanimous verdict of all present, that this organi zation will never permit itself to be used to boost any one’s, personal interest, nor will it at any time throw a monkey wrench into the aspirations or ambition of any one. It will seek at all times the best inter est ol the valley as a whole and will invite the cooperation of all civic bodies whose ambitions are the same as ours, regardless of where they may be located. As this organization is not affil iated with any on the outside, it is in a position to make the scope of the work as broad and comprehensive as it desires. BUILDINUOOM HITS COOLIDGE Wednesday morning work was started on a one story brick building just north of the Ma sonic Temple on Main street, which is being built by R. J. Jones. This will be a very substan tial building and will be used as a Money Exchange for the present and later will be used as a bank. Parties were here recently making arrangements to build on the lot north of the Pay'n Takit store on Central Ave. and a substantial brick building will be erected soon which . will be used for a theatre building. With four or five other brick buildings to be erected on the Main street south of the Pay’n Takit store soon, the outlook for Coolidge this summer is very promising.
