Department of Agriculture has announced that all of their inspectors have been busily engaged in the inspection of all farms throughout the cotton growing sections of Arizona for the purpose of assisting farmers to understand the AAA regulations which require the destruction of all stub cotton not later than mid night of May 10th, 1940. The Divi sion of Pink Bo’lworm Control is especially anxious for all farmers to have their fields free from stub cotton by the time of the final in spection which will begin on May 11th, 1940. A few farmers have been interviewed who did not know that stub cotton growing in grain fie ds, alfalfa fields, on turn rows, ditch banks and in planted cot’on fields would be classed as stub cotton and if not destroyed by May 10th, 1940. would result in penalties. In a big majority of cases only a sma’l amount of labor woe d be required to cut out the random plan s being found in some fields. It is essential that every farmer throughly inspect his fields prior to May 10th and remove all stub cotton. The Division of Pink Bollworm Control and the Agricultural Ad justment Administration both are very anxious for every farmer to cooperate one hundred per cent because, by doing so, he will not on y be assisting in the eradica tion of the pink bollworm but will avoid the penalty for non-compli ance with regulations. If any farmer is in doubt as to stub cotton destruction require ments he should contact any of the so lowing inspectors: D. H. Curria Mesa, Arizona; A. B. Bea vers, Glendale, Arizona; C. W. Jackson. Litchfield Park, Arizona; G. F. McLain, Coolidge, Arizona; or the County Agent’s office, the AAA office, any of the AAA Coun ty Committeemen or the Division of Pink Bollworm Control office, located at 418 Security Building in Phoenix, phone 4-4062. According to reports of all in spectors farmers are giving ex cellent cooperation to date. o Coolidge Rebekah Club Meets Members of the Sew & So Club met Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Fred Sowell.

McFarland of the Pinal county superior court, announced his candidacy today for Democratic nomination for United States senator from Ari zona. “Many friends have expressed the belief,” he said, “that Arizona needs another senator at the na tional capitol who is interested primarily in Arizona.” Judge McFarland is regarded as one of the southwest’s outstanding authorities on water rights. He was attorney for the San Carlos Irrigation district for four years during the stages of its develop ment. Since his occupancy to the bench Judge McFarland has tried many important cases involving water rights, not a few of which were in Maricopa county where he has been caf.led frequently in reco gnition of hi s wide knowledge of this subject. Other calls to serve on the su perior bench in all of Arizona’s counties have given the jurist, he says, “an understanding of the problems and needs of all parts of the state through close association with the rank and file of the citizenry in every section of Ari zona. “I hav ebeen a consistent advo cate of any and all measures de signed to protect Arizona’s diver sified industries and provide em ployment for our citizens,” he says. “Thi3 is no recently acquir ed attitude for purposes of seek ing election. “I expect to represent all the peop'e of Arizona, make my homej in this state, and to be in Arizona| as much as I can, so I may con-j tinue to know and understand the problems and wishes of our peo ple. The middle classes, especial ly the laborers, small business men and the farmers, of which I am one, are now and have at all times been the balance wheel in this nation. Every man who wants to work should have that oppor tunity, and every man who desires U’timately to own a small business should be encouraged and not hampered by too much legislation. “A balanced budget must be gradually brought about. This will encourage industry, thus, in turn providing more jobs and relieve the present unemployment situa tion. Wage earners and small businesg men carry the burdens of our nation. Our system of gov ernment is based on private owner ship of property. “I believe in ample security for the aged; in the right of collective bargaining; in protection for the mining, agricultural and livestock industries of Arizona, and in both preparedness and the 'universal draft as a means of keeping us out of the present world conflict. We must take the profit out of war. “As the campaign progresses, I shall visit all sections of the state and make my position known in understandable language on every issue. You may count upon my consistency on public questions. I shall unrelentingly carry on the fight for the protection of Ari zona’s rights at all times.” LOCAL PAPER for LOCAL PEOPLE NUMBER 9 M. G.
