Subscription rates $2.00 per year GET THEM TO THE VALLEY We are all proud of the resources and opportunities of the Casa Grande valley, in which every community therein shares. Naturally, each section is desirous of cap ital and good citizens to assist in development. Friendly rivalry is to be commended; stimulates business activity and attracts interest. If all towns of the valley would co operate and concentrate on giving publicity to the many advantages found here, it would be very effective in get ting people here to look our country over and each section would have the opportunity of offering their special in ducements. On the other hand, should a prospective in vestor respond to the invitation of any one town he would, quite likely look the valley over before making a decision j on a location; so why not all work together and get them to see the wonderful Casa Grande valley? After they are here would be the opportune time for each locality to ex plain its special advantages. The most interesting experiment that has been con ducted by the human race since its beginning is the appli cation of sanctions by fifty nations against Italy. Nothing approaching it in importance to the human race has ever before been tried. It is the first practical and tangible ef fort that humanity has made to stop war. Its possibilities are so tremendous that it easily stands out as a mile post in the history of mankind on earth. Even though, in this instance, it may fail, it is worth much as an initial effort toward compelling peace and outlawing war. It is quite apparent that the Townsend plan that was passed up in the last Congress is gaining in popular favor and this sentiment has grown to the extent that we pre dict that a great many congressional candidates next year will lay*a plank in their platform highly seasoned with Townsendism. If the Townsendites and ex-service men could form a combination, it is quite evident that their sup port and influence will be effective. The fear of what some one will say. holds many peo ple down to a very mediocre existence. The man who al ways weighs every word and every action to be sure that it will not clash, with some one else’s opinion is a pretty dull and monotonous individual. He seldom sounds his real depths because when he ventures out on strange ter ritory he becomes afraid, and retreats within his shell. An idea of what it means to a nation with an export able surplus to join in the declaration of sanctions against Italy may be gained from the following schedule of prices prevailing in Italy at the present time: Sugar, 25 cents a pound; eggs 5 cents each; coffee $1.45 a pound; gasoline $1.50 a gallon; tea $4.15 a pound; flour 70 cents a pound; beef 50 cents a pound. A reader of this paper wants to know what he can do about this: His daughter’s boy friend keeps her up too late. Our suggestion in such a situation is that you have him picked up for over-parking. As an additional safety factor, it has been suggested that no bank should be permitted to pay a dividend until it has built up a surplus account equal to its capital stock. A law to this effect is being contemplated in some of the states. You can’t fatten a shoat by feeding it occasionally, and a prosperious business can’t be built by advertising occasionally. A lot of those who are comnlaininsr about the govern ment’* spending urogram would he flat on their backs fi nancially if it, wasn’t for the federal money that trickles Wo them nockets and tills. We note by our daily that the Mussolini soldiers are to be fed on spaghetti to keep them in fighting trim. Spa ghetti as a regular diet would make a fighter of us too. The average man can’t understand why any man would get a divorce from a popular movie star and the average woman can’t understand why any woman would get a divorce from a matinee idol. If you feel a little doubt about how the names of the Ethiopian towns should be pronounced, don’t let it cramp your fluency. The chances are that no one else within hearing knows how to pronounce them either. The depression has brought out the best in good men and weaknesses in others. The industrious man has be come more industrious and the lazy man more lazy. Most every town has need for small business places ; that may be secured for small rental and overhead. The scarcity of employment is resulting in more people getting b f o business in a small way. FIRST BAPTIST < CHURCH SERVICE C. F. Frazier, Pastor. Sunday school, 10:00 a. m. C. C.

It costs money to transport food, to process nd oack it, to preserve it. to carry on the vast machinery that operates between pro ducer and consumer, and,: finally, to sell it at retail. Many of those costs are un- ! avoidable and necessary. Some are not. And the great problem of food distribution is to eliminate those which are not, while at the same! 1 time effecting any possible reductions in the essential costs. About 15 years ago. when the nation was appaled by high post-war food costs, better distributing and sell ing methods were started, j These methods managed to do away with several old ‘'middleman” costs they cut others. In less than a generation, they made con-, stant and remarkable prog ress. Today a similar situation obtains food prices are rising, and there is danger they will go beyond the point where the people can comfortably pay. The solu tion, then, is the same as it was 15 years ago. To ad vance as rapidly as possible the work of cutting costs be tween producer and consum er. Few undertakings are so I CENTRAL SHOE SHOP j A.

The score at the half was 18-17 in favor of the visitors. They came oyt in the third quarter and increased their lead but the Red and Blue of Coolidge high was not to be denied and the C.U. H. S. hoys kept fighting until they were one field goal ahead ot Morana at the finish. One thing that contributed to Morana’s defeat was the stalling game. They were under the impression they could hold their lead, but the Red and Blue boys soon broke up that old army game and went on to win. Phil Claridge officiated as referee and performed to the satisfaction of each team Welborn scored 16 points for C. U. H. S., with Jack son a close second with 14. Sneed picked up the other 3 points.
