cart loaded with beautiful gifts
for the future bride who graci
ously received them with ap
propriate words.

Practically all the flocks of
sheep that have wintered in the
valleys are now moving north
ward to their summer feeding
grounds. 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
In an effort to improve duck
hunting in the state, S. L.
Lewis, state game warden, will
ask the United States biologi

the 1933 season. He pointed
out that at present there is one
season in the state, but that it
closes before the ducks begin
flying in the valleys. He ex
plained that there should be
two zones in the state, to fit
the different climatic conditions
The new game warden pro
poses one zone for the nothern
part of the state and one for
the southern, the dividing line
being the Mogollon rim.—Ex.

Devoted to
Advertising the Best
Valley on Earth
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.
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.
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
The Coolidge Woman’s Club
will have their May Festival,
with Mrs. J. F. Eisenhart as
general chairman, Monday,
May 22, in the Coolidge school
house. A good time is in store
for everyone. There will be
“Three in One”, that is, fun
enough for three evenings will
be had in one.
The big time will start with
a Gypsy dinner, in charge of
Mrs. Wm. Jackson, at 6 o’clock
p. m. This will be followed by
small floats representing the
different business firms, under
the supervision of Mrs. T. T.
Terrill. Then the “Gypsy
Rover”, a musical comedy, will
be given at 8 o’clock. This
alone will make you forget your
troubles (if you have any).
There will be special features
throughout the evening between
these events and between acts
in the play.
The Gypsy dinner will be
served for 20 cents and admis
sion to the “Gypsy Rover” will
be 25 cents for adults and 10
cents for children.
Come and join the fun!
