Casa Grande Valley Like a Blanket VOLUME FOUR DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOfi CONGRESS ARIZONA VOTES ON RE~ PEAL NEXT TUESDAY Arizonians will vote next Tuesday on repeal of the 18th amendment. Action by Charles R. Osbrun, seeking permanently to enjoin state and county officials from conducting the balloting, was dismissed yesterday by Judge G A. Rogers of the Maricopa Co. Superior Court, who sustained defense demurrers. Attorneys for Osburn gave formal notice of appeal to the 1 Arizona Supreme Court, and added they would take the case “to the United States Supreme Court if necessary.“ Neither action was consider ed likely to prevent Tuesday’s vote, which will be on the elec tion of delegates to the state convention, although a revers al by cither court subsequently could void the result. The main point of Osburn’s suit was an allegation that the House Bill 1 of the special ses- I sion, 11th legislature, was not, constitutional under the Arizo- i na constitution. In sustaining the demurrers, Judge Rodgers in effect said this could not be a point at is sue for two reasons: There is nothing in the Arizona consti tution about amending the con stitution of the United States; and the legislature actually was deriving authority for passage of the bill direct from the su preme law of the land. birthdayTawn party • | Honoring Mrs. J.

I —UJ(]g COTTON BAGS NOW USED AS CONTAINERS FOB 500 PRODUCTS Cotton bags are now being used as containers for ship ment of more than 500 commo dities, according to figures ob tained by the new uses section ot the Cotton-Textile Institute. Hundreds of millions of many sizes are required annually to take care of the demand. One ol the largest outlets for cotton f j brie in this field is sugar bags. One company a ione manufactured and sold 99, 000,000 cotton sugar bags in j 1932, using approximately 40-! 000,000 yards of sheeting for this purpose. In addition, 8,- 000,000 cotton liners for 100- pound bags of other material, requiring about 9,000,000 yards of sheeting, were sold by the same company. Evidence of the bag industry’s immense cotton consumption in other directions is furnished by the production of approximate ly 12,000,000 cotton potato sacks in 1932. Two years earl ier cotton bags represented about lOprrcent of the total number used for the put-up of potatoes. In 1933 it is esti mated that the proportion of cotton bags will be several times increased. Packaging of commodities in popular sales units and consum er preference for cotton contain ers. because of their re-use value account largely for the growing consumption of cotton for many new purposes.

GRASS WARNING GIVEN Sudan grass and sorghum that have been injured by drought are extremely dangerous as a pasture of green feed for live stock, says the United States department of agriculture. These cultivated grasses are more resistant to drought than most forage crops, but their prussic acid content is greatly i increased by drought injury. “PUBLISHED AND PRINTED AT HOME” COOLIDGE, PINAL COUNTY. -ARIZONA. FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, 1933 ARIZONA HIGHWAYS RECEIVER,OOO Eight hundred thousand dol lars will be spent during the j current fiscal year by the Ari zona Highway Department on construction and repair of horoughfares through munici palities in the state, under a j tentative allocation of funds announced by the Highway Commission, subject to approv al of the federal government. Heading the list of projects are a $191,000 bridge at YY’icken burg and a SIOO,OOO grade crossing underpass at Flagstaff. PLANT COTTON LAND TO OTHER CROPS “The federal plan for the reduction in cotton acreage gives those growers, who par ticipate in the reduction pro gram/' says Dr. R. S. Hawkins, of the department of agronomy, University of Arizona, “the problem of deciding on what to do with their acreage thrown out of cotton production. Growers will not be allowed to plant cotton fields, which have been plowed up, to other crops included in the Federal Government’s reduction pro gram unless such crops are con sumed on the farm where pro duced. YY'heat, corn and cotton are the only crops grown on a com mercial scale in Arizona which are included at present in the Government reduction program. Land thrown out of cotton production may be planted to such summer crops as Sudan grass, sorghum, including He gari, and Milo, or to cowpeas. Sudan grass may be planted as late as August 1, and still make a satisfactory crop with favor able growing conditions. Aug. 1 is too late for the sorghums and cowpeas. Barley and oats may be planted in the fall for hay and grain. Some of the cotton land can well be pre pared for a late fall seeding of alfalfa. A recent United States de partment of agriculture press service sheet states, “Growers, who plan to cooperate with the Government in an effort to re store prosperity to southern farms will give careful consider ation to the use of all land re tired from cotton cultivation, believe officials of the United States department of agricul ture. To do so is to further balance production on a sane basis for the ultimate benefit of the grower.” With the return of better prices the Arizona grower can ill afforJ to allow valuable land Mo remain idle.

ISABELLA GREENWAY MAKES AN ADDRESS IN COOLIDCE Tuesday evening Mrs. Isa bella Greenway gave the voters of Coolidge an able talk on her candidacy for nomination to U. S. Congress. The speaker was introduced by John Goree, pres ident of the Coolidge “Green for Congress” club. The speak er had the pleasure of address ing a large and attentive aud ience, briefly stating her views on subjects of most interest to her audience. We don’t take much stock in any candidates platform but look rather to the past record already established and we believe many voters are of the same opinion Mrs. Greenway seems to be the logi cal condidate and judging from her large following throughout the state there is no question about her receiving the nomi nation Jnext Tuesday at the primaries, which assures her election in October. Mrs. Green way spoke in Florence and Casa Grande the same day, o J. B. Boone was a business visitor in Phoenix Monday. CHILDREN’S PARTY ) Mrs. F. M.

Those present were,; Toby Joe Dunnigan, Jackie Coker, Ruth Spruell, Deon Craig, Richard and Billy Wea ver, Lee Ella and Lavern Odom! Glenace Mitchell, Esther Mae and Dorothy Nowlin, James j Robert Merril, John and Henry | Simpson, Harold Livingston, | John Roche, Freda and Bess ' Masson, Gloria Appel, William Lake Merrill, Bud Nowlin and Blain Burt The Watsons are moving to Florence this week to make their home. Mr. Watson is highway inspector with head quarters at Florence. O Miss Esther Scott who has been seriously ill for some time j with appendicitis complications is reported much better. TNE MAIN TENET OT SAFETY ON ROADS Safety on (he highways is principally an attitude of mind. Better cars and roads won’t attain it Indeed they tend toward the opposite result. It has long been the experience that when a stretch of poor road is converted into a broad, straight, smooth highway the number of accidents increase— because motorists overestimate the safety factor. They lose! the sense of caution that a poor road naturally creates, and the j death and injury rate booms. The same thing is true of automobiles. The manufac-l turers give us cars with better f i brakes, surer steering, more per fectly balanced bodies—and we J abuse them to the point where I the automobile accident rate breaks all records. The “safety attitude” isn’t a particularly difficult one to de velope, It is simply to drive as we’d like the car approach ing us to drive. Don’t cut cor ners. nor pass on curves or hills nor drive on the wrong side of; the road, nor fight for the right i of way, nor drive so fast you; cannot stop in the assured clear distance ahead. Almost every accident, minor or severe, oc curs because someone violates these simple rules. Possibly a better phrase for safe driving would be “courte ous driving.” Discourtesy on the highway is always the friend of accidents. If you’ll make up your mind to drive the way you think the other fellow should drive, the accident rate will be > due for a severe beating in the j future. STEWARD OBSERVATORY SEEKS METEOR FOR STUDY Great interest was expressed at Steward observatory Tucson, regarding the meteorite which fell at Twenty-fourth street and Henshaw road, Phoenix, recent ly. Dark brown with singed' 1 black edges and having the ap-! pearance of molten lava, the' tiny piece, apparently broken from a much larger body is only an inch and a half long and an .inch in diametor. It was picked up in the front yard of Mr. and Mrs' Fred Sul livan. Mrs. Sullivan as well as scores of neighbors witnessed ; what appeared to be the com- j ing of a shooting star. When it was within what seemed to be 40 feet of the ground, it j burst into flame, and was smok- | ing when it struck the ground. To observers in other parts of the city, the meteorite first appeared in the northern sky as a large, rcdish ball of fire. It was visible for several seconds. When about 30 degrees above I the horizon it appeared to burst in a number of pieces, much as j j a fireworks piece might shower, j The mass shot from sight, each j fragment trailed by a blue-ting ■ ed flame. Officials of Steward observa tory expressed hope that the | fragment would be sent to Tuc- j I son for study by astronomers as soon as possible, Several persons in the vicinity of the Sullivan home said it ap peared that a larger piece fell in one of the fields in that area. A search will be made in the hope that this portion may be ' found. —Exchange. Devoted to Advertising the Best Valley on Earth NUMBER 21 MIDGE HESS HEN ADOPT THE N. RJ.

The morning session adjourned till 4 p. m. at which time a report action taken by Florence mer chants might be known and if possible all towns of the Valley could then perhaps adopt the same code. The following code was finally agreed upon. 8:30 a. m. to 5:30 p. m. Mon day to Friday inclusive 8:30 a. m. to 8:30 p. m. Sat urdays! 8:30 a. m. to 8:30 p. m* on days preceeding legal holidays.

Boon presided at both sessions. Deliberations seriously entered into and with a real spirit of a get-together kind that finally resulted in the adoption of a code that suited those concerned so the final vote was without a dissenting vote. A committee was named to canvas the town and surround ing country submitting the adopted code for approval and signing, in hopes that 100 per might be secured.

Dunaway. STATE HEALTH BOARD REVISED ITS SYSTEM Because it believes its death rate from tuberculosis in Arizo na, the highest in the nation, is highly abnormal and does not present the true picture of the health of this state’s citizens, the state board of health has re vised its system of reporting fatalities from this cause. Hereafter, physicians will be required to make death certifi cates of all tuberculosis vic tims, “non-resident” if they have lived in Arizona less than ! one year.—Ex.
