WASHINGTON.—There is in process of being chartered the I governments newest and most ■ unprecedented agency known as the Federal Surplus Relief Cor poration. The board of direc tors, comprising the Emergency Relief Administrator, the Secre tary of Agriculture, and the Sec retary ol the Interior, will have avai able a fund of §1,000,000,- 000 to preclude the possibility of anyone starving in this coun !try next winter. It is a non profit corporation whose chief function will be to buy such food stuffs as beef, pork, milk and dairy products, flour, meal, rice and sugar direct from pro ducers, in cooperation with the Agricultural Adjustment Ad ministration, thereby removing surpluses from the commodity markets and stimulating prices to the farmers. Distribution of food to under nourished children and eradica tion of malaria in several sec tions of the country were added to the program for helping the destitute. Concerned over the increasing malnutrition among children of the unemployed. Relief Administrator Ilopkin ordered local relief commit tees in the 48states to provide for a meal a day at school buildings for hungry children, approximately 6,000,000 thru out the country. Processing taxes such as are already in effect on cotton, wheat and bogs, will be levied to pay the farmers. Packing houses and mills will process at cost the products going into re lief channels. Products on which processing taxes cannot be levied will be bought outright. Manufacturers will be asked to produce goods with out profit. 'lt is estimated that §200,000,000 can be raised by a§2 processing tax on hogs, §100,000,000 on cattle, and other products in proportion. The Corporation also will buy and distribute, all through the channels now used for relief, coal and clothing in its 2-way program of caring for the needy while depleting surpluses. i CASA GRANDE NATIONAL j j MONUMENT NEWS j Mr. and Mrs. H.

It’s better to prevent a fire than to put one out. But we will never reach a hundred per cent success in doing that. The magnitude of our annual fire loss is due largely to our own failure to prepare to fight fire. Departments are underman ed, and often work with insuffi cient or inferior apparatus. Such conditions costs us mil lions a year. They are reflect ed in fire insurance costs, in taxes, in business conditions, in community development. Ev ery fire, no matter how small, is the enemy of progress; every fire represents a burden on every citizen of the community. Not enough of us interest our selves in the local fire depart ment. We consider it purely 1 in the province of local govern ing authorities. And that is a serious error. Progress is al ways the result of popular de mand; change must be brought l about by the concerted action of the taxpaying residents of the community. Learn something about fire departments. Find out the difference between standard and non-standard apparatus, be tween engines that can be trust ed to work efficiently all the time, under the most adverse conditions, and those which may fail. It will mean money in your pocket if you and your neighbors do that and act on your findings. BRHMRTY The Wednesday Bridge Club was entertained by Mrs. J. J, Butterfield at her home this week.

WOULD MERGE WITH ARIZONA I Proposal that San Diego and j Imperial counties in California be made a part of Arizona is advanced by Purl Willis, dep uty county treasurer of San Diego county in an article writ ten by him for the San Diego Times. “How many of us have ever thought seriously over the plan of making San Diego and Im perial counties a part of the state of Arizona and thus unit ing the most naturally suitable section of the Great Southwest into one of the leading common wealths of the nation?, he asks, His question has aroused a number of citizens of Arizona over the proposed union, and all see great possibilities in it, both for Arizona and the two counties involved. It is gener ally believed, however, that California will not consent kindly to having two large counties forming her southern border, torn away and joined with another state. Mr. Willis- points out that when one has been over the great state of Arizona and seen 1 its vast possibilities of growth; and development and considers the natural advantages the un- 1 ion of the two sections would bring both to Arizona and Southern California, the first question arises: “Why was not this done in the beginning?’’ He does not take up the legal question involving the union of the two sections, but he does ; point out some of the ad van t- I ages to both sections involved First, asserts that California with its 1,000 miles of sea coast combines three and possibly four separate sectional inter ests under the government which are in continual conflict. “Geographically and politic ally, it has never worked out in a manner hoped for,” he writes. He also declares that San Di ego and Imperial counties have advanced and developed and held their own with the other counties, not with the proper co-operation and assistance of the state government, but in spite of it. Citizens of the counties, he says, have continu ally asked, “What did the state government do for us?” San Diego county, he explains is the fourth largest in Califor nia. “Indeed,” he says, “it is re freshing to dream in wonder ment as to the great possibili ties of development if San Di ego and Imperial counties and the state of Arizona were all within one new state. Arizona would have a seaport. It needs new leadership and finances along new blood to develop its great natural resources. Arizona today needs just whAt Imperial and San Diego counties have, and this section of California by all the rules of modern poli tical economy and kindred in terests, should have been a part of Arizona. i “There is every good argu ment and reason why this plan ! should be considered by all the people of Arizona as well as of Southern California. We all to MRS. GREENWAY ON WAY TO WASHINGTON When Congresswoman Isa bella Greenway departed for Washington Friday night sho took with her a unique present for Mrs. Roosevelt, wife of the President. It was a copper framed photograph of the com mittee of 20- hard-rock copper miners, William Geany of Globe chairman, who presented the memorial asking for an embar go on foreign copper to Mrs. Roosevelt last June while she was a guest of Mrs. Greenwav in her Tucson home. The cop per came from the New Corne lia Mines of Ajo, which were developed by General John C. Green way. Geany arranged with Mrs. Greenway to deliver the photo graph direct to Mrs. Roosevelt in person. He sent Mrs. Roose velt a letter signed by himself and other members of the com mittee in which he said: “Since presenting you with the memorial in the patio of Mrs. Greenway’s home in Tuc son, conditions here in the Ari zona copper mines have rapidly grown worse, and now a dismal winter is just before us which promises The hardships of both cold and hunger because of our long continued unemployment. And Mrs. Roosevelt, these dis tressing conditions mqst con tinue until our copper mines are again put in operation. And nothing but an embargo or a high-protective tariff will make it possible to open our copper mines once more. CARS COLLIDE NEAR COOLIDGEJUESDAY Cars driven by Mr. Balts a tobacco salesman from Denver and a party from Florence col lided at the intersection one mile north and one mile east of Coolidge Tuesday afternoon. Both cars were badly wrecked but the occupants escaped seri ous injury. o well know that San Diego will always have to ‘play in the back yard’ of Los Angeles, un less some such recognition of her water shipping facilities can be utilized along with her na tural back country, which, it cannot be disputed, is Arizona. An J Arizona needs San Diego. Such a combination is but a part of the plan of nature, it would seem.” He also points out that Ari zona is not overburdened with ‘ taxes and that much of her de velopment has been made by the national government. He ! says that both San Diego and Imperial counties would do well to cut loose from plans now in the making in the state capital ; to make them pay still further in development. He visions a new’ era of genu ! ine prosperity in every corner of the new combined state and declares that “If San Diego is ever to be a city of destiny, as the Creator certainly intended, just how will it ever attain that (Continued on last page.)

Mrs. Joseph Bond and Family SAN CARLOS OFFICIALS CALLED TO WASHINGTON President L. M. Nowell, At torney E. W. McFarland and Engineer C. H. Southworth of the San Carlos Irrigation and Drainage District expect to leave probably Friday morning for Washington to confer with the Commissioner of Indian af fairs and other government officials regarding the project program and related matters incident to the recent alloca tion to the Project of one mil lion six hundred fifty thousand ($1,650,000.00) dollars from the Public Works fund. Shortly after the Public Works allocation was made the Dis. officials received a wire from Mr. Collier, Commission er of Indian Affairs, requesting that representatives of the Dis trict be sent to Washington to confer on these matters. At that time it was thought a sat isfactory program could be worked out with the govern ment officials here in the field. With the exchange of further communications, it became evi dent that it would be greatly to the District’s interests to send a delegation, and upon further solicitation by Govern ment officials, the District Board at a meeting held Tues day decided to send its repre tatives. _ Arrangements are being made through the Solicitor’s office to have Mr. Trusdell, who has taken a leading part in the Gov erments negotiations with the District, attend the Washing ton conferences. While the program of project ! work will be one of the subjects of discussion, the District offic als intend to take up while at Washington, the interest elimi nation legislation, the possibili ties of auxiliary dams on the Gila, as well as other subjects, including a power development program, which latter subject would involve the taking over of the present power distribu tion system in the valley. It is anticipated that the Dis trict officials will be absentfroin two to three weeks.
