Casa Grande Valley Like a Blanket VOLUME FOUR ARIZONA’S BIGGEST BUSINESS ENTERPRISE Phoenix, Aug. 10. Public in terests and enthusiasm leaped over all bounds at 7 o'clock Tuesday morning, August 15, when Roy Way land, manager of the federal Home Owners Loan Corporation opened state headquarters here in the Pro fessional building. The bank of three elevators was not suf ficient to carry the several thou sand persons to the third floor where the headquarters are lo cated, who came to get formal application blanks and first handed information concerning their various individual problems Way land said that mortgagees and banks were co-operating in the work of relieving mortgage harrassed home owners. “The method of obtaining a loan is this,’’ Wayland explain ed. “The home owner obtains from this office or from one of the other offices available thru out the state, a blank appli cation form and correctly fills it out. Then they should be sent to the Phoenix office. After the applications have been cheeked to insure they are in proper form, appraisal is made, If the appraisal is satisfactory, he instructs the attorney in the county in which the applicant is located to obtain a first-mort gage on the property for the federal government, and the transaction is finally completed in the county in which the ap plicant is a resident. Wayland said that applica tion forms could be secured from these persons in the various counties. Pinal. E. W.

It threw out of discussion such burning sub jects as war debts, tariffs and armaments, and thus made it impossible to achieve any prog ress whatsoever in solving the problems which caused its crea tion in the first place. But it did agree on one im portant subject, and the fact that it disagreed so much makes that single achievement stand out like Everest over the val leys of Tibet. The subject is silver. The delegates found that depressed silver prices are inescapably a f actor in world depression, and that world re covery must be accompanied by a substantial rise in the price of metal. That really means some thing. If we bring silver back, and it is starting back now, many of our problems will grow less tense, and some will disap pear entirely. The World Ec onomic Conference has applied the spurs, and focused the at tention of the peoples of the world on the issue. It is time for action . O J. F.

OPPORTUNITY IS NOWJKNOtKING The saying that it’s never too late to mend, does't apply to physical property. In these days, every community has its share of homes and business buildings which have been al lowed to depreciate to the point where they are ready for the wrecking crew Their degener ation may be laid to the door of false economy. While a dol lar was “saved” temporarily, many dollars were lost because of it. There are hundreds of thou sands of properties which can still be put in good condition at a moderate cost, but which will be gone beyond redemption if work is put off much longer. Today we can still get in on bargain prices for ftiost supplies and commodities—tomorrow will tell a different story. The wholesale price level has been skyrocketing, and now the re tail level is beginning to follow. You don’t have to take anv ones word for it that this is the time to build and repair, the cold and unprejudiced statisti cal tables tell you that, and they permit of no argument. Build now, improve now, pro vide jobs and purchasing power, remember that investment and employment are cheaper than charity, and that they make charity unnecessary. o OID PROPHECY IS FOUND Back in 1485 a wise old wom an prophet made some predic tions in simple poetic form, strange as it may seem, all but one prophecy has come to pass. In an old scrap book owned by Alonzo H. Packer, father of Mrs. George L. Freestone, is this strange list of happenings. Printed for the first time in England in 1485, Mother Ship ton’s Prophecies were clipped from a copy of the Galena, Kan sas, newspaper by Mr. Packer. All events as predicted by Mother Shipton except the last prophecy actually have taken place. The poetic prophecy: Carriages without horses shall go, And accidents fill the world woe. Around the world thought Shall fly In the twinkling of an eye. Waters shall yet more won ders do, Now strange, yet shall be true The world upside down shall be, And gold be found at root of tree. Through hills man shall ride, And no horse nor ass be at his side. Under water man shall walk, Shall ride, shall sleep, shall talk. In the air men shall be seen, In white in black in green. Iron in the water shall float, As easy as a wooden boat Gold shall be found ‘mid stone, In a land that is now unknown. Fire and waters shall woDders do England shall at last admit a Jew. And this world to an end shall come In eighteen hundred and eighty-one. o J. B. Boone was in Tucson Tuesday attending to business- COMMISSIONER OF INTERN AL REVENUE STATEMENT Commissioner of Internal Revenue Guy T. Ilalvering is sued today the following state ment concerning the tax on electrical energy: Section 01(3 of the Revenue Act of 1932, imposing on the consumer a tax of 3 per cent on amounts paid for electrical energy furnished for domestic or commercial consumption, was amended by the Act of June | 10, 1933, (Public No. 73-73 d Congress) so that the vendor of: electrical energy sold on and' after Sept. Ist, 1933, for domes tic or commercial consumption | will be liable for payment of the ; 3 per cent tax, based on the price for which sold. Under the provisions of sec-! tion 010 now in effect, the taxi must be paid by the domestic or commercial consumer of elec trical energy furnished up to and including August 31, 1933, irrespective of when payment for the energy so furnished is made. On and after September 1, 1933 all vendors of electrical energy will be liable for tax on electrical energy sold for domes tic or commercial consumption, and not for resale, at the rate of 3 per cent of the price for which the energy is sold. The law specifically provides that a publicly-owned electric and power plant will not be liable for tax on eleetrical energy it sells, even though such energy is sold for domestic or commer cial consumption. In the case of an owner or lessee of a building who purchas es electrical energy for resale to tenants therein, the law regards the initial sale of the energy to such owner or lessee as the tax able sale for consumption, and the resale to the tenant is not considered a sale for consump tion. —Ex.

He is one of the old est merchants from point of ser vice in the valley. Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Bird had a serious accident Tuesday, coming into Coolidge from their ranch, to shop. In crossing the river bed their car slid into a deep hole, which was hidden with some water from recent rains making the crossing hazar dous. The shock threw Mrs. Bird against the glass window injuring her seriously. They were given first aid at the Schiele home and then taken into Phoe nix for treatment. BUILDING FOR TOMORROW The New York Times editori ally suggests that some of the public works money might pro fitably be spent for scientific investigation, and points out that work done in laboratories is, in the long run, often the best maker of jobs of all. That is an excellent sugges tion. The government is to spend hundreds of millions in construction projects which, once accomplished, will have ended their usefulness so far as providing substantial employ ment is concerned. Why not spend a little in seeking to pro duce new industrial wells from which permanent jobs may eventually be drawn? Entire ly new jobs, rather than tem porary employment to be fol lowed again by unemployment or overcrowding of existing in dustry, is what our country really needs. • LA PALMANEWSITEMS By Mrs. H. A.
