WORLD PARLEY JUNE 12, WILL BE BRIEF SESSION London, May, 30.—The) world economic conference, j which will open June 12 with GO ! nations participating, is expect-j 1 ed to remain in session only six ; 1 weeks instead of six months ' previously estimated. ' This was learned from officials of the League of Nations who ' are in charge of preparations fori ( the momentous parley' According to the plans now formulated, the conference will * be organized into some sem blance of efficiency for tackling ail of the problems on its agen- ( da before general debate is 1 launched. I it is to start with a brief and i businesslike session at which J King George will outline in ( broadest terms the hope for re turn of world prosperity, j Prime Minister Ramsay Mac- i Donald will make the presiden- I tial address and the American ] delegation will formally present s its tarilT truce proposal. ] Indications noware that after the first phase of the meeting, lasting perhaps six weeks, an adjournment will be taken. Committee work may then be carried on at Geneva paralle with the league assembly there in September. No decision has been reached about whether plenary sessions of the confer ence subsequently will be re sumed in London, with a final ceremonial session here. After the parley has been con vened organization problems are expected to require two weeks, but behind the scenes committees will be working on the formidable questions of currency, exchange restricts ns and tariffs. There is hesitation even a mong league officials experienc ed in international meetings of post war years to forecast the course of the conference. This is because of the great range of subjects which it will be called upon to examine in an effort to improve world commerce and prosperity generally.—Ex. BRIGHTER DAYS TOR MINING The world as a whole is mov ing slowly, but steadily, toward decisive changes in monetary standards. It is recognized that gold alone cannot carry on world commerce, and that there must be some other generally accepted medium of exchange, Silver, of course, is a logical choice, indeed, the newly pass ed inflation bill permits the President, at his discretion, to raise its value. The mining in dustry seem- on the verge of brighter days. ®Mlidv^ocommer wwiSJ^ ARIZONA STATE CHAMBER OE COMMERCE MEETING A major step in Arizona’s campaign of civic and economic advancement was consummated Monday in the completion of an Arizona State Chamber of Com merce.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SPEND SOME DOLLARS The public has grown weary of the old slogans to the effect that “Prices are booming! buy now” etc. But there is truth in those phrases at present. Recent inflation activities and the prospective change in the gold backing of the dollar, will be the most powerful price stim ulant in three years. It really is time to buy now! Best of all, by buying now, and building and repairing now, you can do your bit in the most dramatic stage of war against unemployment and distress and at the same time secure the greatest return on your dollar in more than a generation.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SPEND SOKE DOLLARS The public has grown weary of the old slogans to the effect that “Prices are booming! buy now” etc. But there is truth in those phrases at present. Recent inflation activities and the prospective change in the gold backing of the dollar, will be the most powerful price stim ulant in three years. It really is time to buy now! Best of all, by buying now, and building and repairing now, you can do your bit in the most dramatic stage of w'ar against unemployment and distress and at the same time secure the greatest return on your dollar in more than a generation. A dollar in property improv ment means a dollor touching the lives of a thousand people, and doing a thousand dollar’s work. Repair the steps, paint the house, remove fire hazards, renovate the garden, renew rot ting foundations with concrete, do any of these things, and you will be a factor in the work of recovery. It is not Prophecy to say that in your lifetime you will never have the opportunity to get work done as cheaply as now. Its a fact. The price structure is abnormally low. It is lower than even the intenseness of depression justifies. As demand increases, the rate of climb will be sharply accelerated. Remember that providing jobs is cheaper than charity, and that it’s better to provide a job now than to have to con tribute to charity next year. Remember too, that unless the jobs are provided it won’t be long until nothing is left for charity. The Indian Service got in a new dredge this week to be used for work on canals in the valley.

A business meeting will be held at the same place this Fri day evening and all members are urged to be present. UNDERINFLATION CAUSE MOST FABRIC FAILURE A majority of the fabric breaks occuring in automobile tires are caused by underinfla tion, in the opinion of J. C. Jayne of the Coolidge Auto Sup ply Company, local Goodyear dealer. “Despite their best intentions motorists become careless, about keeping the proper amount of air in their tires; they neglect periodic checking of inflations so that serious in jury results,” Mr. Jayne point ed out. “Frequently damaged valves or slow leaks cause tires to become soft “When an underinflated tire does strike a curb, hole in the pavement, or sharp projection such as a brick, there is not enough air in the tire to cusion the full force of the blow and the sidewalls are crushed be tween the sharp rim edge and the outside object. “Often the original break is in only one layer of cords, but eventually breaks through the other plies and pinches the tube It is entirely possible that the driver may not know of the injury until excessive flexing of the damaged section causes complete failure of the tire. “A blowout patch, or boot, should be used only as a tem porary repair for a fabric break unless the tire is almost worn out. A competent service man can make a sectional repair to the injured section that will in most cases out-wear the re mainder of the tire.” Fabric breaks can best be avoided according to Mr. Jayne by keeping tires inflated to rec ommended pressure, and by a little care in avoiding severe road shocks. KIVA DANCES REPEATED An exchange says, old mem bers of the Hopi Indian tribe who could not travel to the Grand Canyon last week to view a series of katchina dances dedicating a kiva there, ordered them en-acted here to deter mine whether they were given in a manner pleasing to the gods, so that rain will come soon to the Hopi farming land. The dances were presented away from the mesa for the first time in Hopi history last week when the aged tribal heads ordered the young braves to Grand Canyon to participate in ceremonies at the Indian Watch Tower at Desert View. During the dances gifts of apples and oranges brought from the kiva at the Watch Tower by P. Himiche, a full blooded Hopi, were distributed among the small Indian child ren as an act of charity to w r in Devoted to Advertising the Best Valley on Earth NUMBER 13 WORLD’S FAIR OPENED SATURDAY 27, AT CHICAGO J “ Century of Progress is depict ed at Big exposition. Clear ing skies turned Lake Michigan into a sea of blue this evening to bear out forecasters’ predic tions of perfect weather for Sat urday’s opening of the Century of Progress Exposition on the lake’s western shore. Officials estimated that the first day crowd will exceed 500- 000. They expect 50,000,000 visitors by September. Three events stand out on the opening program: A parade of 10,000 persons into Soldier Field; the dedication by Presi dent Roosevelt’s official repre sentative James A. Farley; and illumination of the grounds at 9:15 p. m. by thousands multi colored lights switched on by a magnified beam of light from the star Arcturus. The Fair is too vast and too colorful for a one story descrip tion. It is too fantastic for comparison with any other event of its kind in history. It would take five months to see it all, and volumns to describe it. Its theme is celebration of 100 years of unprecedented world progress since Chicago was incorporated as a village. These 100 years have seen more advancement in science, agriculture, travel and trans port than all other centuries combined. The world’s fair seeks to tell the whole story in a series of moving exhibits so compact they cover only 424 32 acres of land and water. Following are facts of inter est: The fair cost approximately $30,000,000, not including bor rowed exhibits. There are 500 buildings. The extent, ex clusive of water, is 338 acres. The length is three miles. The 50 cent general admission entitles one to pass through 82 miles of halls lined with exhibits For $27.50 you can see every amusement on the midway. One exhibit contains replicas of all crowns worn by leading monarchs and took 18 years to assemble. One man described the fair coloring, as resembling a cyclon blowing out of a paint factory. There are 118 loud speakers to broadcast announcements and help find lost children. The sky-ride, tallest structure west of New York, is a combi nation of the ideal of the Eiffel tower of the Paris Exposition and the Ferris wheel of the 1893 Chicago Exposition. The Mexican village, costing $75,000, was erected in 13 days. Two of the world s most fam ous trains, the Mexican presi dential train and the Royal Scot, are in the travel-trans port building. Among the exhibits is a log cabin from North Carolina and the world’s smallest moving picture theater, seating 22 per sons. There wall be a tourna ment for bridge players, a horse show, and an egg lay ing contest. —Arizona Republic further consideration from the “mighty rain gods.” After repetition of the dances the old men of the tribe ex pressed satisfaction over the way they were conducted.
