Casa Grande Valley Like a Blanket VOLUME FIVE UNITED SUITES PREPARES TO PUR CHASE CATTLE A deal to purchase 5,000,000 cattle for SIOO,OO T.OOO or more in 12 western state* to aid drouth stricken rancher*, was (•ring completed tonight at a confer-nce of stock growers, federal executives and state re lief director*. Dr. E W. Sheets federal drouth relief director, said that the buying program already has started in Texas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Da kota- and Oklahoma, and will get under way in New Mexico Monday and in Colorado beforr the week ends. In Wyoming, Montana, Arizona. Nevada. Utah. Idaho, Nebraska and Kansas the program will start within 10 days, possibly sooner. The federal government has appropriated fIOO.OOO.OCU for the purchase of cattle from far iners in the drouth areas of the state and will use more money if necessary, Dr. Sheets said In addition a similar amount will be used to purchase feed for starving cattle or to move them to past ares not affected by the drouth, he told the stock growers. Recent rains have changed the drouth picture from one of black despair to one of new hope.be said. A number of areas have reported that be cause of the rain they will need little or no federal aid. Dr Sheets predicted the buy ing program by removing culls frttu herds, will aid the cattle industry in the long run by im proving the general quality of animals. “In this way a real tragedy wall be turned into a great bless ing" he said. . j He explained the government will buy cattle through the AAA and will turn them over to the Fedeial Surplus Relie Corpora*ion for processing. The meat will l*e distributed to the unemployed. “We want to buy only the least Jesirable animals, thereby making it possible for farmers in many instances to carry the] rest of their herds.*' he said. “Starved cattle are being de stroyed on the farms. Only the cattle worth slaughtering are lieing used for canned meat. The best of them, the ones fit for dairy and breeding purpos-, es. will be turned over to farm ers to build up th.*ir herds. W. F. Warner, assistant to Dr. Sheets, said the production credit corporations and the Re gional Agricultural credit cor porations have been instructed to sign releases on drouth strick en cattle upon which they hold mortgages. The government will buy these animals as well as those free of mortgage. Part of the payment will go to the lien holder and part to the •owner.

CONGRESS ADIOURN ED MONDAY NIGH! Congress ended its session Monday night. June*lßtb. The Dill railway bill was finally passed. With that measure out «*f the way. the end came quickly through <adoption of a confer ence report on the administra tion housing bill, last remain ing item on the Roosevelt pro gram, and in house acceptance of senate amendments to the rail bill. The day also saw the inde pendents victorious in nn ••ffort to get senate adoption of a con ference report of the Frazier hill, giving bankrupt farmer* a virtual six-year moratorium on their debts. A wrangle over this measure, and a filibuster for it by Ixmg of Louisiana were important contributing causes of the aban donment of carefully-made plans to end the session on Saturday night. In addition, action was com pleted during the day on the vital second deficiency bill, carv ing more than $2,000,000,000 to appropriations largely for re lief expenditures. THE PAST AND THE PRESENT “No system is perfect," said Cassius E. Gates, past presi- I pent of the Seattle Chamber of 1 Commerce recently “Certain- i' !y wrongdoers should be pun- 1 ished. Abuses should be cor- 1 rected. Wise governmental < regulation, is needed in many < directions, but it is not neces- I sary to destroy that which we 1 gained in a century and a half < of progress, nor is it necessary, j* in the desire to cure ne evil, < to go so far as to destroy the 1 fundamental rights of institu- 1 lions and of men " 11 All geuuine progress must be * built upon the foundations of the past, on that which has been I learned through-trial and error I and long experience. Change i which dismisses the past as be ing entirely unworthy of con sideration must inevitably do great damage and little perma nent good. To keeD that which time has proven valuable and worthwhile, while eliminating that which is inimical to the ( common welfare, is the purpose* of the patriotic American. Today we have an excellent , example, in many countries, of what uncontrolled zeal to make changes can do Germany,! Italy, Russia, come to mind, and the fact that unbiased ob servers forecast that present systems of government in those' powers will either collapse or ,be entirely overhauled, is sig nificant. Human rights were abrogated, traditions were for torgotten, dictatordiip with a vast lust for power were set up, and a feeling of rebellion grows i constantly in the hearts and the minds of their peoples We are seeking to do great, things in America. We can do them only if we temper the theories of the present with the experience of the past.

JARIZONA’S exhibit DRAWING CROWDS Governor Henry H. Horner of ' | Illinois, who spent a three weeks’ ‘ vacation at Senator James Hin ton’s ranch near Prescott last I February, paid an especial visit to the Arizona exhibit at A ' Century of Progress in Chicago last week. After making a com-: plete tower of the exhibit, in ; eluding the large central build-> ling and the adjoining cactus; garden, Governor Horner signed the offiicial register and added ■‘Good luck to Arizona." Through Fred Wilson, man ager of the exhibit and his per sonal guide, Governor Horner sent personal wishes and con-, gratulations to Governor B. B. Mouer, who had previously j welcomed him at the capitol building in Phoenix. He ex pressed the greatest of enthus ism over the Arizona represen tation, lauding the commission for its efforts in bringing such a display to Chicago’s Fair. The cactus garden, long fa miliar to native Arizonans, daily | attracts thousands to the state | exhibit Sponsored by the Uni versity of Arizoni and under the direct supervision of Prof. A. A. Niehol, loaned to the ex hibit staff by the University, it jis the largest ever transplanted to the middle west and affords s the exhibit a unique attraction FOREST SERVICE AIDS i CONSERVATION CODE Wa hington,—The conserva tion features of the lumber code providing for preservation and development of forest values, as urged by President Roosevelt, are being put into effect by di vision agencies of the lumber code authority. On account of th • public interest in the man ner of handling the 400,000,000 acres of privately owned tim-' lw*r lands, the Forest Service is cooperating fully with the own ers and tin* industry, which is represented by 10 regional codei agencies, in turn representative of 32,000 commercial sawmill j and logging outfits. Forrest practice rules formulated by these agencies, suited to the various regions, have been ap proved by the national code authority. pbospfmk mines It is not an exaggeration to say that leaders ol the metal mining industry feel more en couraged than for some years past. There are strong movements on foot throughout the eiviliz, ed world to rehabilitate silver, in the interest of stimulated in ternational commerce and gen eral world recovery. Reports 'from the industries manufac turing mining equipment indi cate that the mines are prepar ing for heavy increases in pro duction. In brief, the stage is set for a genuine mining revival Prosperous mines are great employers. They are great tax payers. They distribute large sums to investors in all walks of life. They create new purchas ing power, that extends through • agriculture, the professions, all ■ industries. They are one of tne , three basic industries, and their revival is essential to our fu ture. Devoted to Advertising the Best Valley on Earth NUMBER 15 IRRIGATION WELLS COMPLETED IN A FEW MORE DATS Drilling of the last of the 53 irrigation wells which were con tracted to the Roscoe Moss Co, Tor the San Carlos Project began this week and all will be com pleted in a few days. To date but one well of the 53 has pro- I veil to be useless on account of low production. Os the re mainder the lowest producer is rated at 1000 gal. per min. Some are good for 3000 gal. per min. or 4 second feet. Fourteen wells were drilled in the Cas i Grande district ■ wh’ch proved to be the poorest part of the project for water production. Except for the well that will not be equipped, the production of this district runs from 1000 to 1800 g. p. m. Ten new wells are drilled in the Florence district of which 5 were north of the river and 5 south of the river and east of the city. It is expected that all of the wells in the Florence dis trict will be up to the average and that most of those north of the river will be above the average. Fast of Coolidge 10 new wells were drilled with prospects that the poorest will produce 1700 g. p. m. and the best around 2700 g. p. m. West of Coolidge 8 wells were drilled on white own jed lands and 8 were drilled on the Reservation. The district j west of Coolidge shows signs of being the best for water pro duction and with the least ; average lift of any part of the | project. It is expected that many of these wells will pro duce better than 3000 g. p. m. Three wells are being drilled in the Casa Blanca district on | the Reservation, west of Saca | ton. Little is known about the underground waters of this dis trict as yet. There are man}’ old wells on the project which will probably be purchased for the project. These are located in each of the several parts of the irrigable area. Many of these are now being operated using their old equipment. Many others are not now equipped. Seven wells that were drilled on the Sacaton Flats in 1930 for the project have been test ed and will be equipped and oecome a part ot the well sys tem. An advertisement has just been sent out asking for bids for the drilling and furnishing casing and starters for 30 more irrigation wells These will complete the well drilling con tracts and with those already drilled, and the old wells that will be purchased, will give the project 100 irrigation wells from which it is hoped to obtain 400 cubic feet of water per second to supplement the gravity flow of Gila river. A contract has been made , | with the Peerless Pump Co. of Los Angeless for pumping equip ment for 50 of the new r wells ' and deliveries will be made im . mediately for such of the wells i as can be connected up to pow’er lines. Until project * power is available from Cool • idge Dam it will be necessary - to purchase power for ihe oper ation of project wells.
