This is but another example of the es -1 forts of the paper to present the 1 news to the people. Altho the paper was delayed an hour and a half, the “scoop” was ahead of any paper in the state with the news. More mature reflection on the damage done by the fire still does not dim the bigness of the tragedy. Accord ing to Mr. Hines, the Drug Store damage will be about $7,000. The damage to Zahalsky Fair Store is undetermined but will run many hundred dollars. The damage to the 1 New San Carlos Hotel is also un determined but bring the total of all to somewhere in the vicinity of SIO,OOO for the whole fire.

To you kind friends who so efficiently contributed your efforts to saving so large a part of our store, we wish to publicly express our heartfelt thanks and assure you of our enduring gratitude. The way in which so many—and their name is legion —gave all they had in the way of untiring effort in actual fire fighting, or bringing fire extinguishers in continuous contributions at a time when f ; re extinguishers were just what were needed, in fact every one in every way doing his every bit possible, forms a picture in our mind ! that will remain always. We do not think it would be fair, or worthwhile, to list names of the ones who might appear to be outstanding in their assistance. There is no doubt there were such, but there were so very many who gave thoughtful and efficient help to the best of their ability that the list would be a very long one. And besides, we kept no list of names and memory is faulty, so, that somt of deserving might, in error, be overlooked. In fact, a great many who helped a very great deal, we did not know their names. . To the many kind friends who have since done us so many acts of kindness; that so feelingly expressed their sympathy, and on so many occasions have offered in so many ways their unstinted assistance in any capacity—to all of these, we wish to give assurance of our fullest apt „ preciation. i > If it might be said there is brightness in a disaster and loss such as we have sustained, we have certainly 1 found that brightness in the knowledge so unmistakably brought to us of this wealth of friends. To all of you, we say thank you—please feel that it & v comes to you sincerely. r ; HINES DRUG CO. J. M. and ORALIE HINES Mrs. L. E.

State Librarian Capitol Bldg Bids To Be Opened On The Overpass Two Miles North i Bids will be opened for an over pass on the railroad two miles north of Coolidge, on the Coolidge-Plor- 1 ence highway on June 22. There has been several accidents j at this crossing in the past few j years and its a much needed ini- i provement. The Examiner is of the opinion that an overpass or underpass i a t the Coolidge Avenue cross ing is more dangerous to the traveling public and has been the scene of more fatal accidents than the North crossing and should re receive some kind of a safe guard also. o Coolidge Woman’s Athletic Association Formed Tuesday The Coolidge Woman’s Athletic association was organized Tuesday evening on the 15th of June at, the High School ball park.

NUMBER 14 THE BUILDING BOON STILL CONTINUES Coolidge people have become ac. i customed to the building of new houses and scarcely notice them begin, but to a person just com ing into town, or returning after a stay outside of town, the phenon.e. nal growth is noticable immediate ly. New buildings started this month include the residenc t ofi Bill Nowell, in West Coolidge, with Bill Hamilton and Lackey as contract ors. This building is valued at $4500. Across the stree,. from the Nowell residence Is the new house of Dee Johnson, valued at $4500. Chas. Elledge is building this house. A block north we see the erection of the Winkler home, valued at $3600. Mr. Winkler is superin. tending the building of his own home. Other houses in West and North Coolidge, as well as in the central portion of town bring the total t oa figure than any town might envy. Jack Eisenhart is completing a neat cottage on his property in North Coolidge. The house has f our rooms and a bath. Dobson and Dobson are assisting him in the construction. o Alfalfa Suited To Valley Crop “More hay and less cotton’’ is the recipe for a stable and prosperous valley, according to Manager Urton of the Capitol Fuel and Feed Co. He reports an excellent first cutting crop of alfalfa, but a decrease of 2500 acres over the Casa Grande valley for the second cutting. In addition to this, the second cutting was slightly damaged by insects, altho the latter part of the cutting was free from plague. The prospects are very good for the third cutting. The Capitol Fuel and Feed lias handled 2500 tons of hay thus far this season, and coupled with that of other outlets, a tremendous hay crop is visible. The price is holding up at, sll in the field for the farm ers, caused by an extra large state demand. Out-of state demands do not seem to affect the price* this year, owing to the large demand locally. When asked the advantage of an alfalfa crop, Mr. Urton cited the many things that make the eroo ideally suits to this valley: It is .4 summer crop, bringing in cash when cotton is still uncertain; It builds up the land as does nothing else; It has many outlets that as sure a profitable crop, even tho the price should go down, since it can be fed, sold to dairies, feeders can be brought in, and many other things done with the surplus. Raise more alfalfa and help buld up Coo lidge and the valley. o , Young People Give Ice Cream Social ’ in order to raise money for dele gates to the summer assembly at Prescott the Young people of the Methodist Church are giving an Ice 1 Cream Social with an interesting l program next Monday nigli t in the 1 basement of the church. The price 1 of admission will b« 25c, and there t- will be plenty of ice cream and cake - plus interesting program. Tickets 1 are being sold by all of the Young laides of the organization. o The post office is considered a ° good barometer of the business be *1 ing done in the town where it is t located. Postmaster J. B. Rooms e reports that the first half of June n 1937 was an increase of over fifty r- per cent on tha receipts of the first i, half of June 1936. Let the good work go on.
