THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER Published Every Thursday Entered as second-class matter March 7, 1930, at the post office at Coolidge, Arizona, under the Act of March 3, 1879. hTffUPEir fKUURKW'.. Publisners One Year In Pinal County $1.09 40 00 One Year, Outs de Pinai County - YANKEE THRIFT TURNS THE T ID E . Real prosperity can be brought about again in t u.-> country only by a revival of “old fashioned Yankee thrift and individual initiative.” This is not opionated theory but a hard fact, and the State of Connecticut is taking full advantage of it. While the rest of the country con tinues on a “witches hunt” for Utopia, Connecticut is de terminedly pursuing a course of progress. The incumbent governor was elected on a platform pledge to establish a “friendly government”—friendly to business, industry and labor. The state budget has been balanced,, without resorting to new taxes—relief rolls have been halved—factory space is at premium—l6o new companies moved to Connecticut in 1939 alone —and employment is higher than in 1939. The state has found that “there is no substitute for a good job in private in dustry.” No effort was made to “steal” industry from other states, or to use high pressure methods. Labor standards were not sacrificed. In fact industries which move across the border in search of “cheap” labor are not welcome. Sweatshops have no place in American life. Politicians who claim that private enterprise is a “worn out” system, have only to observe Connecticut to have their claims shattered. The only thing that has momentarily “worn out” private enterprise is constant ballyhoo, indiscriminate legislation and excessive taxation deliberately directed toward destructible ends. America’s millions of unemployed can learn a lesson from Connecti cut. By contrast they can see the damage that constant political persecution has done to the private institutions by which we all must live. Where there is individual opportunity there is pro gress; where there is no individual opportunity therp is no progress —lndustrial New s Review. THE BASIC TRANSPORTATION OF AMERICA As Robert S. Henry has written, “Great risks were taken in building railroads. Men staked their capital on uncertainties. Some won great fortunes, more lost. But "in lose, the railroads were built. Whatever its wastes and faults, that venturesome way did succeed in trans forming a continental wilderness into a great nation, within the short space of a century. It did succeed in creating a continent-wide system of transportation which carries every sort of freight, over all distances and be tween all stations, in all seasons and in all weathers, at an average revenue of one cent for hauling a ton one mile —the basic, essential transportation of America.” Many of us tend to think of the railroads as empire builders of the past—a form of transport whose great services to the nation belong to yesi'erday. Nothing could be more erroneous. If anything, the railroads are today more vital to the nation than in any previous time. With out them, the intricate industrial machine which feeds and clothes and otherwise serves this vast land of ours, would be demoralized. It is true that other carriers have ap peared, each offering a valuable if limited service. But these carriers, to the thinking man, emphasize rather than diminish the value of the railroads. The truck, the air plane. the pipe line all do good jobs—but none of them, nor all of them combined, can be mentioned in the same breath as the railroads when it comes to extent, certainty, efficiency and economy of transportation service for men and goods. The rails are our most essential form of transporta tion. The iron horse brought civilization into the wilder ness—and the iron horse is doing more and more to keep that civilization going and growing. o MONEY “FOR RENT” The banks of this country have plenty of money “for ren f to persons with a legitimate purpose in mind, and with the necessary qualities of character, experience and probity. Furthermore, that money can be “rented” on more favorable terms than at any time in the past. Interest rates are extraordinarily low. And for certain kinds of loans, extremely generous repayment terms can be ar ranged. Few of us realize the extent to which banking has bettered its service to the public in recent years. Every effort ha s been given to meeting the sound needs of the 1 small borrower no less than the large. Many banks now make personal loans at moderate interest rates, thus sav ing borrowers from becoming the prey of unscrupluous loan sharks.” Other banks have gone into automobile financing on a wide scale. Others advance funds on favor able terms to homebuilders. There is no justification in the old complaint that bankers arc skinflints, who delight in nothing* so much as | saying “No!” to the prospective borrower. Banks today* advertise for business, and seek it in every possible man ner. When they say “No!” to a borrower, there’s area s. n ‘or it—either legal strictures, or the tenets of safe ! and uound banking make it impossible to grant the re quest. Yes. there’s money “for rent”—billions of it. No one with a legitimate need has to worry about being able to obtain necessary funds. AS IT APPEARS TO Your Congressman By JOHN R. MURDOCK The group of seventy congress -1 men of all pd itical parties engaged i in studying means of solving or ! alleviating the unemployment situation are now making their reports. The Monday night meet ings have been comparatively free from partisan politics. Perhaps too much is expected from this small j group, but it must be understood that they meet in an advisory ca pacity as a study group and theyj limited themselves from the be ginning to fact-finding rather than “resoluting.” Even so, about a dozen members have called at tention to certain bills now before Congres s and attempted to have the group go on record as support-; I ing them. I have asked the group ;to give earnest consideration to | If. R. 8206. The President of the Arizona ; Small Mine Operators. W. J. ; (Billy! Graham of Phoenix, is in Washington to present arguments in favor of a bill which I intro- I duced at the request of the or -1 ganization. particularly the last jof three bills, the H. R. 8206 re ferred to above. Billy Graham brings a knowledge and an en | thusiasm which should be effect ive, although there are tremend ous obstacles to overcome in the consideration of ever such logical, wholesome and much needed legis lation. Graham is thoroughly con vinced that this bill enacted into law would not require one penny out of the U. S. Treasury, would save the U. S. Government forty five mil'ion dollars in a five year period, and furnish employment, to two hundred thousand men now unemployed. Who wouldn’t work i for such a measure? Congressman John Rankin of Mis | sissippi got very much peeved in the House one day last week. His Widows and Orphans Bill. H. It. i'UOO. was on the Consent Calendar and was objeected to. The Con gressman warned the House that if he cou’dn’t get consideration ot that bill any other way. he would bring it out of the Rules Commit i tee, where he has been attempt ing to get a rule on it, by the petition method. In less than twenty minutes he had a peti- I tion on the Speaker’s Desk, which 1 would require of course, two hundred eighteen signatures to bring the bill to the floor of the House. He got the signatures in record time. Also, a petition on the Towsend Bill has been recent ly put on the Speaker’s Desk, and it. too, received signatures in a remarkaobly short time, though not the required number as yet. The Walter-Logan Bill, designed to bring adminstrative agencies and their rulings under court re view, has been before the House ! this week and passed. The op ; ponents and proponents of this j measure represent two conflicting j views or schools of thought. Each recognizes that our government is very, very complex, and some body must have authority delegat ed by Congress, to carry on the necessary govermental work. Some say the administrative agencies must have large discretion and a compartively free hand without undue court delays. However, proponents of this bill insist that there must be a limit, and they, would have It a pretty severe | limit. placed on the so-ca!lled bureaucrats by subjecting theiv; rulings to court review'. I feel that, we haven’t yet gotten the answer to this question. I go before sub-comittees of the 1 Appropriations Committee many j times during every session asking for appropriation of funds for Fort Huachuca, C.M.T.C., forest roads and trails, Indian items, dams and irrigation projects and the like. This week it was concerning re lief. On apologizing to this same group of men for facing them so often, I said, “Genemen, since three-fourths of the entire area of Arizona is ow - ned by Uncle Sam, you must see the necessity of my coming before you”. A Congress man from West Virginia asked, “Is that literally true that three-fourts of yours state belogns to the gov ernments ” ‘‘Well, to be exact I i thing it‘s 72 percent.” I replied. J Eastern Congressmen do not w'd’-l understand the situation with re-! THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER gard to such Western states as Arizona and Nevada. I presented the protests which I had received from the Governor and others j concerning the playing off of eight hundred men from WPA rolls. Protests have come from Ari zona regarding the $5.00 per day fee charged motion picture pro ducers for filming pictures on government land. Mr. Burlew | called a conference regarding these protests, the result of which I do not yet know, but have been assured of some modification of the charge and further that it does not apply at all to Indian reservations. Such fee charged on government land would certainly obstruct picture filming and pic ture making in Arizona. On Friday the House extended crop insurance to include cotton on the same plan which it had been first extended to wheat. o Conference Os Social Work A three day program schedule for the eighth annual Arizona Conference of Social Work, to be held in Tucson, May 2 to 4. was prepared recently at a meeting of state conference officials andj NOTICE TO CREDITORS IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF PI NAT, COUNTY, STATE OF ARIZONA Estate of Ellsworth Nichols, de ceased.
