THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1938
ARIZONA’S
Political Horizon
(LOCAL CONTRIBUTION)

The political hue and cry in Ari
zona is beginning to foul our rare
ozone again, with the parade of of
fice seekers increasing as the days (
roll by. The time limit within
which nomination petitions must be
filed in order to quality is rapidly
drawing to a close. This year, from
a political point of view, is to be an
unfortunate one for Arizona, in as
much as the aspirants to fill politi
cal offices for the next two years
are admittedly far below the stan
dard of former years. This rings
particularly truein our gubernator
ial race. We have five aspirants
for that honorable position and out
of this quintette of aspiring gentle
men there isn't one that can in
reality lend the dignity and busi
ness acumen to that important of
fice that it actually demands. This
is an unfortunate thing for our
Baby State in view of the sac :
that the next few' years w T ill demand
the utmost vigilance and business
strategy to steer our Ship of State
on the proper course. The writer,
eves dropping on conversation be
tween two Coolidgeans a few days
ago, heard something to this ef
fect, “W T ell, w r e have plenty of
timber floating around for Gover
nor this year, haven’t we?” “Yes,
we have,” ejaculated the other.
“But they are all Bull Pine Knots ’
There is but one business man
among the group and that one has
conducted a chain of Drug Stores
in Arizona for a number of years
and has been rather successful, al
though he has played somewhat
around the political arena by serv
ing as State Senator several terms
from both Pinal and Maricopa
Counties. That, however, does not (
qualify him to a seat in the gallery
along with the other four chronic
politicians. The race for the gover
norship in the democratic primary,
no doubt, will eventually simmer
down to a close contest between
R. T. (Bob) Jones and James H.
Kerby with Mr. Kerby substantial
ly in the lead at the finale.

NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS
Notice is hereby given that the County Board of Supervisors of
Pinal County, State of Arizona, will meet on the second Monday in
August, namely August Sth, 1935-, at the office of said Board in the
Court House in Florence, Arizona, at which time and place any tax
paper may appear and be heard in favor of or against any proposed tax
levies or portions thereof. When such hearing shall have been con
cluded the Board of Supervisors will adopt the estimated amounts fi
nally determined upon required for the several funds to meet public
expenses for the Fiscal Year 1938-1939.
On the 15th day of August, the Board will again convene to make
the tax levy as required by law.
E. W. WEAVER
Clerk Board of Supervisors
Pinal County, Arizona
al system of State Government
from all indications will become
the leading issues in Arizona dur
| ing the next two years and one.
if not both, hav e better than an
< von chance of adoption. There ap
pears no avenue in our present
cumbersome system of State Cov
j ernment by which the heavy burd
j ened tax payer can escape from the
| wrath of the spendthrift politicians,
other than by the merit system for
our State and County employees,
together with the abolition of our
needless State FLouffe of Repre
sentatives, instituting in its place
a one House Legislative system.
This should be followed by the
! adoption of a four-year term for
our Governor, not to succeed him
self. Such a method of government
would save the citizens of Arizona
a tremendous Bum of money an
nually. How can we bring this
much needed change into realiza
tion? If the apparent indifference
of our citizenry in the past to vital
political matters directly concern
ing their own welfare is taken as
a criterion, we are going to remain
in this category for a long period
to come. On the other hand, if we
can awaken from our present stupor
and go to bat for this much needed
reform, our objective would soon be
reached, and the machinery of
modern government that would put
p definite stop to the tremendous
waste, graft, and corruption, as
exemplified in our present State
and County governments, would be
in actual operation. Very little, if
any, can be expected along the
lines of governmental reform, as
stated here'o from our chronic
politic since it would deprive
tb -.1 wholly of the means of pursu
ing their vicio-s system of patron
age and graft. Therefore, the so
erine- of such reforms rests enD -
ly v th the citizens themsei- -s.
There is less than half a million pop
illation in tl ° entire State of Ari
zona and it is hard to imagine of
( a more cumbersome and extrava
gant government in the whole
civilized world set up to govern ;
that small number of human be
ings. It can be truthfully stated,
however, that a tremendous reduc
tion in the present appalling cos*
of operation of both State and
County governments could be
realized if honesty and integrity
could in some manner be injected
into the holders of public trust.
