According to a statement, issued today by J. W. Bournier, Acting Regional Director, about 9,000 formerly unemployed workers have, been re-employed on the sites of the various PWA projects now be ing constructed in California. Ari zona, Utah and Nevada, compos ing this Far Wester region. Sine it has been established of ficially that for each man hour of work provided on a project site. 2’ ; hours of such work is neces •>rv in the production of materials ind transportafion of them, this means jobs have been created for 22.500 additional men. There were about 7,000 men at work on PWA projects in Califor nia alone today. As a large share of the materials being used irr this construction is produced in this state, it was estimated this meant that the ranks of the state’s un employed had been reduced by ; nearly 15.000 by the current Public Works Administration drive for re covery. In Arizona there are 1.500 men at work on new PWA projects. In; Utah 568 have been added to pay; rolls, while in Nevada 75 men; h v found jobs. ‘Records are being broken en couragingly by the Federal Public; '.’’orkc Vdministration in its cur- 1 r‘-rt : rogram,” asserted Acting, D -t.-r P rnier. ‘‘The fact that 1 tlrs r : n has been successful in : getting more than 61 percent of + s new projects in work ahead; . cf the time required by law must j be recorded as unprecedented, j Every indication points to the \ e c .ablishing of an all-tima high! mark ! n public works construction r.ot only in this western area, but for the entire United States.

God pity us mothers who don’t / derstand, That they gave their lives to pro tect our land. We should honor this day with pride and joy, , For it is dedicated to our noble boys. (Composed and written in sympa thy and honor of our boys by Han nah Hodapp, Coolidge) «NU hhw*N* Famous Magician Comes to Coolidge Psychologists at Duke University | are expounding a new theory of I telepathy (mindreading) in which : i is claimed “amateur telephath i ists” can broadcast thought from i one mind to another. The book ' which explains the theory is en titled “New Frontiers of the Mind” | and was written by Dr. Rhine of i the Duke University faculty. The new theory is called “extra sensory perception.” Marquis, the famous magician, coming to the Coolidge High School auditorium Wednesday night. November 16th. at 8 o’clock, under auspices of the Coolidge Parent Teachers Association de clares he make all other mind readers look like “pikers” when he goes into action. He will not only read the minds of promin ent Coolidge people, but will prove he can broadcast his thoughts to the minds of others. Many unusual things are promised during the Marquis program. He challenges any Coolidge physician to seal his eyes with heavy surgi cal dressings after which he will tell his spectators in detail about the objects they have in their pockets. Marquis will impersonate a famous spirit medium and present a seance both in the open light and in the dark. Marquis has long waged a bitter war against fraud, ignorance and uperstition and claims for his ‘wonders” only that they are “scientific hocus-pocus.” His frank ness increases the entertainment value of his wonderful program. He is only appearing at four places in Arizona, Phoenix, Tempe, Coo lidge and Tucson. Baha’i Assembly Hold Services Here I * | The Phoenix Ba!*a’i Assembly L held the first of a series of public at the Coolidge Woman’s ' I Club building on Sunday, Novemb -1 j er 6th. Mr. Edward Ruppers, eha -1 irman of the afternoon opened the ' | meeting with a brief statement | of the objects of the Baha’i Faith f and presented the following pro- R gram: Vocal solo ‘‘The Lord is Mindful of His Own,’’ Paul A. Schoeny. ' Accompanist, Clarence Iverson. 1 “History and Principles of the Baha’i fairth” was given by Lois ’ Humphrey, a member of the Phoe nix group w r ho said in part “The Cause of Baha’u’llah is the same as the Cause of Christ. It is the same temple, the same foundation. ' Both of these are spiritual springs, and the seasons of soul-refreshing ? awakening and the cause of the * renovation of the life of mankind.” “Reality is not divisible; it does * not admit multiplicity. All the holy ? Manifestations of God have pro -1 claimed and promulgated the same reality. They have summoned man -1 kind to reality itself and reality is one. The clouds and mists of im r itations have obscured the Sun of Truth.” I In his discourse upon “The Crea t! tive Word of God,” Clinton H. I I Bugbee called attention to the ' scriptures of the Great Religions r of the world recording the teacli *! ings of those prophetic founders i such a s Moses, Buddha, Moham ? med and Christ whose word has "been accepted by millions of adherents as infallible and that, if ' so, must have been of Divine ori -5 gin as no word is infaMible save ' the Word of God, the prophet be ing the human mouthpiece to ' convey the great message to hu manity. The words of these great prophets regenerated the lives of those who accepted them thus proving their creative value. Ba ha’i is believe Baha’p’llah to be the prophet of this day and age. Mrs. Zahrah Schoeny in speaking on “The Goal of a New World Order’’ enumerted the various ! kinds of unity to be established in the world under the new order as including language, religions, rac es, nations and mankind in gen eral thus laying the foundation for | the establishment of Universal Peace, by the elimination of pre-! judices. In closing she quoted Shoghi Effendi, recognized head of the Baha’i faith a 3 follows: “It is toward this goal, the Goal of a New World Order, divine in origin, j ! all-embracing in scope, equitable in principle, challenging in its features —that a harassed humani ty must strive.” The meeting was closed with a vocal solo, “Benediction,” written by Shahnaz Waite. o The R. L. Sewell family spent Sunday as guests at the home of Mrs. Frank Gilbert in Casa Gran de. Another Pioneer Retiring The Coolidge buying public, as well as the citizens of Pinal coun ‘v in general, have reasons to re ~ret the unexpec*ed recent news of the selling of the Hamilton Lumber Company to the O’Mal’ey Lumber Company, a state wide or ganization with headquarters in Tl hoen ! x, not that the people of i ‘hip. town and county will not welcome this substantial firm to 'in our progressive business con rns, but the regret enters in the ”001 that we are to lose one of ’'e most respected and substantial isiness men in P. W. Hamilton ('in the business life of Coolidge. The Hamilton Lumber Company the oldest concern to enter that ■’d in Coolidge, having establish -1 the business in October 1527. P W., as he is familiarly known to Ids host of friends, entered into the business as well as the social and civic life of Coolidge at a period when the spirit of real pio neering was the ruling factor. Mr. Hamilton won and maintained the confidence and sjespect of jthe public from the very beginning. Mr. Hamilton’s retirement from the business life of Coolidge leaves a decided vacancy and his many friends and acquaintances wish him a w r ell deserved rest, also a prosperiou& future for his worthy successors. o Benefit Payments Less in Pinal County PHOENIX, Nov. 7.—Better busi ness conditions for Pinal county during October were reflected by a 40 per cent drop in job insurance benefit payments for the county, it wa 3 reported here today by stat isticians of the Arizona Unemploy ment Compensation commission.

I rant proverty. I am flesh and blood mother to the unfortunate. I answer the needs of the world. I am ageless, tireless, unified, and my plea for humanity cannot be refused. I inflame a nation. I sweep as ide petty selfishness. I am a great human whirwind and I scatter over barren land rich seeds of tang ible charity. I am a great orator, for my speech is simple, my message clear, my purpose urgent, my zeal 1 universal. I rebuild after fire. I care for the sick after disaster. I have a thousand, thousand hands that are J busy restoring beauty and health ! destroyed by Nature improperly ; controlled by man. j xam a great healer, and I shall ! not. die while there is want in cur land. I am the Red Gross. Contact your local committee or I committee chairman at once, thus rendering a service to them and , the Red Cross.
