The 14-point program advocated
by C. M. Zander, above, candidate
for the Democratic nomination for
governor, is receiving wide-spread
approval according to Zander cam
paign leaders.
PHOENIX. July 21.—The con
structive 14-point pros ram advocat
ed by C. M. Zander. Secretary to
the Board of Directors of State
Institutions and a candidate for
governor, is being received with
wide acclaim throughout the state,
it was annouced at Zander-for-
Governor headquarters here today.
Covering a broad field of issues
and develipment of state wide in
terest and importance, Mr. Zand
er's program has been endorsed
by many of the state’s leading
farmers, business men. mine opera
tors and professional men as well
as numerous ’abor organizations.
In brief, the program Mr. Zander
advocates in his platform is:
1. Endorsement of Governor
Stanford’s platform, including the
Townsend Plan, the conclusive pri
mary. and the four-year term.
2. A modern pension plan for
school teachers adequately safe
guarding those who con’d qualify
only under the present law.
3. An intelligent program for
highway development to keep apace
with tourist and industry demands,
making the highways safe for to
day’s needs and tomorrow's re
quirements.
4. Creation of a continuing
Board to administer and govern
juvenile homes and institutions,
divorcing such homes and institu
tions from their present governing
body.
5. The principle behind con
tinuing Board and Commissions is
sound in ideal. The princip e would
be destroyed by Boards and Com
missions made co-terminus with
the governor. The function of con
tinuing boards is a matter of per
sonnel and harmony, over which
a governor can exert considerable
control if he is so inclined.
6. State support for national ad
vertising. in connection with the
National Tourist Bureau, of Ari
zona's unparalleled scenic and
health-giving attractions. Arizona
cannot afford to overlook the pos
sibilities of increased tourist trade.
7. Inauguration of a soil eros
ion program satisfactory to range
men; one that will have no ele
ment of rtstricting the control of
the range by stockmen. Extend
aid and improvement through sci
entific planting of Arizona ranges.
8. Retention of the copper tar
riff. Revision of rules and regula
tions. of both public and private
agencies, governing Arizona s small
mines. Restoration of silver in the
monetary system, “as it is im
portant to general recovery, and
is a guaranty of business stabi’ity
and security for the masses of
the people.”
9. Equalization of the tax burd
en existing today so that the peo
ple who live, work, produce and
spend in Arizona do not have to

The Coolidge Examiner
Rotarians Hear
Service Station Man
Mr. A. Vest spoke on ‘The Serv
ice a Retail Gasoline Station Of
fers to the Community,” at the Ro
t <ry Club luncheon today. In his
talk. Mr. Vest remarked that “as a
ru|e, touriists usually* more
courteous than local people, while
seeking service. Coolidge is fortu
nate in having so many well equip
ped stations for car service”. “Many
people fail to understand the dif
ference between an ordinary grease
job on- a car, and a super-grease
and general checking up job. which
includes ehasis, transmission, spr
ings. tigtening bolts, cleaning of
spark plugs, oil baths, oil filter re
placements, etc.” said Mr. Vest. “A
service station manager must
watch his credits, as the margin
on his products and service is too
small to operate long on outstand
ing accounts. Every service station
employee must be competent, ex
perienced and courteous, in order
to be successful,” Mr. Vest conclud
ed.
Mr. N. G. Murray, secretary of
the Club, reported a pleasant and
very instructive meeting at the
Presidents and Secretaries confer
ence at Flagstaff, which he attend
ed Sunday and Monday.
o
Coolidge At The
San Fransisco Fair
The plan of the Arizona State
Fair Commission to solicit the as
sistance of the variious chambers
of commerce in the state in plat:
ning the state’s exhibit at the Gold
en Gate Exposition is meeting with
exce'lent response. In co-operation
with the services of National Ad
vertising Agencies that are now be
ing used by some of the cities in
the state find an additional oppor
tunity to’ieature s*tne-of the parti
cular or outstanding attractions in
their districts through direct con
tact with the people they desire
to interest in Arrizona that will
possibly visit the Exposition. Each
county has been asked, through its
chambers of commerce, to submit
to the commission the features of
and the points of interest that they
wish displayed. The original plan
to grant each equal opportunity for
representation is being strictly ad
hered to. The opening date of the
Exposition is February- 18, 1939, and
the commission hopes to have Ari
zona's exhibit in on that
date.
(Believe it or not —Coolidge has
the Casa Grande Ruins, but no
Chamber of Commerce. Ed.)
o
The Low Down
From Hickory Grove
I do not often get steamed up
and forth at the mouth or excited
about what is going on or not go
inf on.
Most stuff being done, you forget
about it anyway, by tomorrow, and
all you get out of stewin’ around,
is a bad stomach. And I want to
preserve my stomach for things like
baked beans, etc., which my Susie,
she is a champion at fixing up.
But once in a full moon some
thing happens that gives me a half
way pain in the neck, and the lat
est. it is this talk about helping the
farmer —like it used to be the fash
ion to get elected by poppin off
about electric lights.
But farmers, I would feel more
like envying them, being sorry. You
don't see any farmer who is worth
a hoot, going hungry like people
in the city. He just waltzes out
there and digs a few potatoes and
carrots, and his wife pops a chick
en in the skillet —and depression
number one or depression number
2, it makes no difference.
Fee’ing sorry for a farmer hiding
behind a plate of fried chicken —
brother that is comedy.
Yours, with the low down,

Old Valley Church
Program Sunday
“The .judgment Day” will be the
topic at the services in Old \ alley j
Church, 4 miles southwest of Coo
lidge on Sunday at 11 a. m.
Most Christian people have very
vague ideas concerning the day of
judgment. Some think it will be a
24 hour day. and that it will seal
the doom of the majority of hum
anity, that in these few hours the
rocks will be rent, everything will
be demolished and amid this con
fusion the Saints will be taken to
Heaven and the rest sent to etern
al torment amidst the cries and
anguish of a disorganized world —
truly a dark picture. In his talk
Mr. Siglin will discuss such ques
tions as the length of the judg
' j ment day, who ar£ to be judged,
and what the results will be.
At 8 p. ni. the topic will be
“Earths Coming Glory”—a glory of
physical improvements that will
i continue until Man is possessed of
a perfect body. Mr. Siglin has
made a special study of these sub
jects and is ready to back up his
1 conclusions from the Word of God..
At noon there will be a lunch with
,! ;v questions and answers period.
1 Everyone is welcome, and there are
: no collections or charges.

“Behind the Scenes In
American Business”
By JOHN CRADDOCK
Things are now looking up all
over the nation. Farmers in tip*
wheat country are preparing to
sell a record-breaking crop at bet
ter prices than they expected. Re
ports from industrial centers in- i
dicate that workers who lost their
jobs anywhere from three to niim
months ago are being reemployed.
In the last 30 days 1.500 skilled
r .dio workers have gone back to
work in Camden, N. J., and 15,000
nothing workers have returned to
their jobs in Rochester, N. Y. in a
steel manufacturing town in Pen
nyslvania idle workers have been
requested to come back and register
for jobs,-the usual prelude to re
sumption of operations. The im
proved business sentiment, follow
ing three weeks of risiing stock
and commodity prices, hasgiven
confidence to buyers for retail es
tab’ishments who are now in the
New York market making selec
tions of fall clothing, house furnish
ings and other merchandise which
will soon be on the nation’s retail
counters.
A flood of optimism poured out
of the nation’s eapito! last week.
Government economists predicted
an early business recovery. Secre
tary of Interior lekes declared that
a billion dollars worth of building
materials, including iron and steel,
glass, cement, lumber and plumb
ing equipment would be purchased
f n carrying out the government’s
new Public Works program. Fed
eral Housing Administrator Stew
ard McDonald reported to the
president th it the FHA this year
would insure mortgages on $1,000.-
000,000 of new homes, a new all
time reitrd for construction finan
ced by insured mortgagees. Secre
tary of Commerce Roper before
sailing to Scotland on vacation
said the process of slow economic
improvement has been going on
Steadily for several weeks.
YOU CAN'T WIN —The observo
tion made after the World War
that neither side can win a modern
war is being demonstrated again
in the Orient. Both Japan, the ag
gressor, and China, the attacked,
are much worse off today than be
fore the outbreak of hostilities just
a year ago. And all other nations
are suffering too. Losses to Am
erican business and labor to date,
because of the Sino-Japanese con
flict, are placed at $2,000,000,000 by
O. O. Gallup of the Export Manag
ers Club. That’s at the rate of $25,-
000 an hour. Mr. Gallup’s estimate
is based on reports from the Far
East listing damages to American
property including hospitals, mis
sionary buildings, cultural institu-
tions and private homes as well as
mlu-trial buildings in China. Japan
11 s practically ceased purchasing
materials from other nations ex
cept for wartime purposes because
slu' has had to tighten her belt to
finance an undeclared war which
is costing $5,000,000 a day, he said.
CORNER GROCERS AND SELF
SERVICE MARKETS—AII retail
ors- and independent grocers parti
cularly—have been studying close
ly the development of self-service
tores. Corner grocers not in com
munities where self-service stores
have been opened, and who have
had no direct experience as to the
effect of such markets on their
business, are finding the answer
in a recent survey made by the
Progressive Grocer, trade magazine
of the grocery business. This study,
conducted in northern New Jersey
end Cincinnati, disclosed that both
number and sales volume of medi
um-sized independent stores actual
ly have increased along with self
service market activity. In New
Jersey, it was found that stores
with from 3 to 15 employees en
joyed about $9,000,000 more volu
me in 1937 than in 1935, while self
service markets with 16 or more
employees increased their sales vol
ume slightly less than $3,000,000.
PLAY'S THE THlNG—Recrea
tion is fast becoming a major sou
rce of employment in America. A
recent tabulation shows that some
1.250 cities and towns in the U. S.
now have 17,745 play areas employ
ing 40,413 full and part time recrea
tion leaders. In addition, there art
about 10.578 volunlteers leaders.
Total expenditures for public recr
eation in those cities and towns
last year was placed at $47,933,-
781.
HEADLINES—U. S. Farm popu
lation 90,000 greater than a year
ago, according to the Department
of Agriculture . . . ISO patent appli
cations a day were filed by U. S.
inventors with the Patent Office
last year . . . Population of the U.

Many Farm Homes
Now Electrical
Farmers to whom REA loans are
bringing electric power for the
first tiime are quick to form new
electrical habits, according to a
survey publishe in the July issue
of the Rural Electrification News.
The survey, covering 46 REA-fin
anced projects on which the aver
age time of service per customer
was only 8.4 months, indicates that
within a very short time farmers
learn to use electricity for far more
than lights.
First, in the average farm fami
ly, a house-current radio is install
ed, bringing entertainment and
more news of the world as well as
of crop conditions. Next, the farm
wife banishes the sad-iron in favor
of a lighter electric iron which
stays hot. Third, the wash-tub gives
way to the washing machine. Then
the electric refrigerator comes in
Electric toasters, water pumps,
vaccum cleaners, hot plates, small
motors, and p(#iltry. lighting equip
ment follow, in the order named to
make farm life more pleasant and
profitable.
New electric lines, the survey re
veals, provide big new markets for
industry. The average farmer, dur
ing the first few months he has
electricity, spends about SIBO for
app iances. This expenditure is in
addition to the outlay for house
wiring, which is anywhere from SSO
to S3OO.
Small and inexpensive appliances
sell rapidly on all projects through
out the country. Approximately 86
per cent of the new customers buy
electric radios. An appreciable per
centage of the customers -also pur
chase more costly equipment; for
example, 26 per cent, it is estimat
ed, acquire electric refrigertors
soon after obtaining electric serv
ice.

The Arizona Wool Growers As
sociation, in their State Conven
tion at Flagstaff on July 13th,

Rep. John. R. Murdock
Urges Adv. Campaign
For State of Arizona
Rep. John R. Murdock urged re
cently an advertising campaign to
publicize Arizona’s elimilo natural
sources and agricultural industry
: n the eastern part of the United
States.
Arizona’s lone member of the
house of representatives, in an ad
| dress before a Douglas civic club,
| said when lie first went to Wash
| ington, he was “amazed” at the
ignorance in the East concerning
this part of the nation.
General Pershing’s fight back to
health at Tucson last March “made
front page news all over the na
tion and was a good boost for our
climate,” Murdock said.
For several months, he said, he
had distributed pamphlets and
copies of the Arizona Highway Ma
gazine to members of congress.
Tax Valuations
Are Increased
The 1937 assessed valuation of
Pinal county was $27,547,319.59, a3
against the 1938 valuation of $28,-
120.031.81, making an increase in
taxable values of $572,712.22. It
means an added tax on property
in this county, of $29,872.97.
Among the items on which there
is an increase is on gas lines,
banks, and and improvements, mer
chandise stocks and household
j goods. The valuations of railroads
| and mines were reduced.
