Coincident with its completion M. E. Coyle, general manager, an nounced that the car marking this major production milestone is be ing set aside, to be awarded to the winner of a nationwide contest conducted between now and Aug. 31. The object of the contest is to locate the Millionth Chevrolet Six produced after the introduction of the valve-in-head Chevrolet Six, 1929. | Production records show that the Mlilionth Chevrolet Six —as distinguished from the Millionth 194<» model just built—left the as sembly in 1929. Whether or not it is in use today is. of course, un known. If the contest fails to re \eal the actual Millionth Six, the owner of the first Chevrolet pas senger car which wa 3 built after production of that unit, and which is entered in the contest and con forms to the conditions thereof, will be adjudged the winner. Motor number, as obtained from the manufacturer’s records, will be the basis for decision. Search for the Millionth Six will be conducted through Chevrolet dealers, all of whom are being furnished with official entry blanks. All cars entered must; have been acquired by their pres-| ent owners, and licensed for senger car operation, prior to July 12. 1940, and entry blanks, to be mailed before midnight August 31, must bear the signature of a Chevrolet dealer in certification of the data forth regarding the car..

Motors Building at the Fair prior to that time. o All Over the Country It's a big country, the United States. No map is big enough to show all of the tens of thousands of cities and towns and tiny vill ages that exist in every part of it. But even a casual glance at iny map of the whole nation or of any single state or section in it will reveal one surprising thing. That’s the number of towns and cities in America that have been named after some industry. Names like Steelton and Valley Forge and Tannerville dot American maps by the hundreds. These names offer quiet but convincing testimony to the im portance of industry to the general scheme of things in this country. The communities in question were named after industries, and an-' other large group of communities have been named after men who founded in those towns. And there outstanding evid-j ence that industry has had a lot to do with building up the community, —and through that, the national — j life of this nation! o Free Swims For Coolidge Children The Rotary Club sponsors free swimming to Coolidge children!

These iron posts are the same which was used by Tempe and in the outskirts of Phoenix. Accord ing to Mr. Luthy, Tempe reported they paid twenty cents per foot | whereas Coolidge secured a very! good quality of posts at twelve cents per foot, F. O. B. Coolidge. To date there has been pledged for this project $239.00 of which $144.00 has already been collected and deposited to that fund. Due to the fact that West Coo- j lidge intends to sign their streets,! the work has been put off a few ; days until they can turn in their j subscriptions. The committee is I now working on a plan whereby it jis hoped that we may be able to number all the houses and make a city directory. This will be done in cooperation with the Civic Im provement & Planning Committee which is headed by Dr. R. V. Champbell. It is quite neccessary | that a directory be made of the ! city due to inquiries from out siders. The project should prove | a real worth-while service to the , City of Coolidge. o Coxon Urges Boulder Line William Coxon, Pinal county senator advocates that the state use $900,000 it expects to receive | in Boulder Dam power revenue to j begin construction of a new | power line from the project to bring needed electrical energy to Arizona. He said he had telegraphed Governor Jones, calling his atten tion to “a gravely acute shortage iof electric power in Arizona dis- I tricts where an estimated thous-j and s of acres are threatened with destruction,” and suggesting that a line be constructed to bring ad ditional Boulder Dam Power to this state. The Parker Dam power line i s inadequate to supply need ed power, he asserted. Power Curtailment Further complicating what he termed “a very grave situation,” the power supplied farmers in the Casa Grande valley by the Salt | River Valley Water Users Associ ; ation will be curtailed August 7, he asserted. The Water Users Association : has been aware of the power short age situation for two years, Se«- ; ator Coxon declared, and farmers j blame it for not anticipating their i needs. I He foresaw the loss of $5,000,000 to $10,000,000 worth of property in the Casa Grande valley as a re- ! suit of the power shortage. Opposes “Diversion” “This may be accomplishtd by Boulder Dam conveying adequate construction of a power line from | power for agricultural, industrial and municipal requirements in Ari ' zona. 1 "It is wrong and unpardonable to divert the money to the general • fund for the participation of ! political spendthrifts or to en courage them in overspending i their budget allowances.

T. “Bob” Jones j has accepted an invitation to speak at the Third Annual Jam ■ boree and Funfest of the Arizona I Small Mine Operators Association to be held in Globe August 22, 23 and 24. His audience will include I hundreds of miners and small mine operators who will come I here for an affair that promises to ! he one of the outstanding mining I events in the history of the state. Jones’ address will be listened to with particular interest inasmuch as the Arizona Department of j Mineral Resources, which has con | centrated its activities toward im- I proving conditions faced by th° | small mine operators, was created | during his regime. “One of the I key policies of my administration,’ - j Jones recently decalerd, “is to en j courage the investment of new capital in Arizona to develop our vast potential resources, establish new industries, and provide jobs for the unemployed. “The most constructive step in i this direction has been the es tablishment of the Department of i Mineral Resources which already ha s to its credit the development and improvement of a number of small mines. These properties have added thousands of dollars of j taxable wealth to the state. Arrangements for the Jamboree | are being made by E. R. “Scoop” : Kielgass, chairman of the Miami Council of the A.5.M.0.A., and Loyde C. Edmonson, chairman of the Globe Council. The latter is, also a member of the Board of Governors of the Department of Mineral Resources. Bolts Begin To Strike Bolts of prominent Democratic, leaders against the third term can didacy of President Roosevelt be gan to be announced immediately after Roosevelt’s renomination by the Chicago convention. From Senator Edward R. Burke, Democrat of Nebraska, went a telegram to Wendtll L. W illkie, Republican nominee, at Colorado Springs, Colorado, advising him that Senator Burke would “work for your victory at the pools in November.” The telegram continued: “Thus only may we make cer tain that never again will any party or any individual be tempt ed to try to overturn the wise precedent established by Washing ton, strengthen by Jefferson, Mad ison. Monroe and Jackson, and cherished by all Americans who j prize their freedom.” He continued: “A host of citizens nurtured in the Democratic faith will support I this stand against the third term for any President.” Senator Burke then quoted Presidents Buchanan, Jackson and Grover Cleveland as opposed to a third term and concluded: “I disclaim the leadership of those in my party who but a few years ago put themselves on rec ord that any departure from the two-term tradition would be un wise, unpatriotic and fraught with peril to our free institutions, and who today take the very action they then denounced. A fitting re buke to their apostasy will be ad j ministered by an aroused people.’ j Representative Harry B. Coffee, Democrat of Nebraska, was quick : to join Senator Burke in also de ! daring he would not support President Roosevelt for a third term. He said: “As a Jeffersonian Democrat consistently adhering to the prin ciples upon which that party was 1 built, I cannot conscientiously sup port any President for a third term. If our constitutional de mocracy is to survive we must * have more patriotism and less J machine politics.” , o > Mr. and Mrs. Paul C.

TO THE RESCUE TO THE RESCUE Rabbit Hunting Without License Brings Arrest With the arrest of two men for hunting rabbits without a license William Cook, president of the Mo have County Game Association, has issued a warning against il legal hunting in the county. All hunters must obtain a hunt ing license even for shooting rab • bits, Cook said. Although there i is no limit on jackrabbits the limit on cottontail is six rabbits per day or in possession. With an unusually good quail crop this year the game associa • tion has issued special warning against hunting the birds before the opening of the season. The law imposes a fine of $lO per bird in such cases and in addition may confiscate the guns of violators. — Mohave County Miner. The Low Down From Hickory Grove You know, this idea of doing something about getting prepared for war is O. K. But the idea of just doing something, and having only a hazy idea about how it is gonna turn out, is a horse of a different color. And you take these battleships costing around 90 million each, which we think we gotta have, they will maybe not be what we want. 3 or 4 years from now, when they are finished. We need some thing now as much as 4 years, : sence. For 90 million we could build 25 or 30 welter-weight boats. And 25 or 30 such spitfires circling one battleship, would make things, pretty lively for the big boat. The] 25 million dollars Graf Spee of the Germans, she didn’t last long against 3 small Britishers, down there off South America.

The best wav to sell that idea is to point out the advantages of thlsi ism. Menthology recently carried! a statement under the caption; “Pippar s of Americanism” which 1 makes for appreciation of the ad vantages we claim. Here ’tis: “T h e principles underyingj Americanism are as unchanging as those upon which Christianity is based —as good today as when first decalared. As we understand the term, these are some of the fundamental pillars of American ism. and in these parilous times every American should have en graven in his heart and axioms that give reality to the immortal word —Freedom. “1. The conviction that the Liberty of the Individual is basic to any worthwhile social order. “2. That progress in our coun try has come through individual iniative based on the right of each person to acquire and hold pro-j perty—free from interference. “3. That the rights of the in dividual must not be invaded by, the government or by any division or by any agent of the govern-, ment. "4. That the Constitution of the United States is the soundest instrument yet devised to preserve and fortify the rights of the in dividual citizen. “5. That the first duty of the Government is to preserve Law j and Order. “6. That it s second duty is to; keep the doors of opportunity' open for every citizen —to protect him from any force s which may! attempt to limit or deprive him of his rights and opportunities, j “7. That it is the further duty ,! of the government to preserve a free economy and the orderly, working out of natural economic j laws as best designed to promote human progress—to resist any at- 1 temps of politicians, labor, capital,! or any other group, to bind thesej natural forces to a selfish group . advantage. 8“. To be ever alert to detect, and promote to combat forces, no matter how attractively garbed, which would destroy the Liberty of the people and make them servile creatures of a ‘super state’. “9. That the measure of per sonal worth in our Country is . character, and that those who set up ‘classes’ and inflame those classes against each other are enemies of the peace and progress of the Commonwealth. “10.

Willkie’s War Record Appeals To Veterans Five of the six Republican nom inees for President following the Civil War and up to the present century were war veterans: Grant, Hayes,. Garfield, Harrison and Mc- Kinley. Now it is more than like ly that the men of service in the World War art going to play an important part in the affairs of America for quite a number of years. They have reached the age j and know r just what it means to make sacrifices for their country. Wendell Willkie, just starting to build up a private law practice, closed up books and enlisted as a private in 24 hours of the first call for troops in April, 1917. He gained his promotions, up to the point of captain, on the field of battle. There is going to be more appeal in this war record to the thous ands of boy s who served in the ranks than the average citizen, or the most expert politician, can visualize today.

I ° Regular Rotary Club Met July 18th The Rotary Club of Coolidge met at a regular meeting Thurs day noon, with Natt Dodge, presi dent, presiding. The new form, of working under the club of the present administration is the sing-| ing of Irving Berlin’s God Bless ( America which is followed by the pledging of allegiance and saluting 1 the American Flag with Edna Pearl Steward at the piano. At this meeting several songs were 1 sung led by Leon Keith w T ho was ! also in charge of the program for the day. During the meeting, Bill Urton, 1 | chairman of the program commit- 1 tee announced the programg for i the next three weeks and advised j the club that Park Soule would I have the program in charge fori next week. Charlie Cohen, past president the club, was presented with a past president’s Rotary Pin by President Dodge and was told that this token was being given to him in rememberance of the services jas their leader. Mr. Cohen re sponded by saying that he felt: i this plendid token meant that he 1 had more working for him as Is anticipated by past presidents. Visitor for the meeting was E. M. Ward of the Florence Rotary Club formerly a resident of this city. Leon Kieth gave an able address on the reflection of the Rotary to the individual member and stress j ed that attendance to other small i! clubs was very essential in order • to find out what other places were ! doing. He suggested inter-city , meetings with other Rotary Clubs | and then stressed the fact that if j , one could he should attend the, 1 large clubs such as Phoenix and i Tucson. Mr. Kieth said that some Rotarians were designated to • respective places to fill every club, i He then spoke of the individual ; Rotarians being responsible to-1 i wards his community and stress- > ed the fact that each Rotary mem-: i ber should staunchly support its Chamber of Commerce in its re i spective community.

S. Army Unit Visit Coolidge It is estimated that approximate ly 2000 people turned out to see the parade and demonstration put on by the mechanized army unit which passed through Coolidge last Tuesday. The mechanized unit, under the direction of Major I A. E. Easterbrook of the Army Air j Corps, arrived in Coolidge about 10:00 a. m. Tuesday and proceed ed down Main Street accompanied by two units of the Arizona High way Patrol with their sirens wide I open. From there they proceeded to the high school grounds where they established camp. At about 6:30 the crowd began to gather on Main Street and by 7:00 the street was filled on both sides by an immense crowd. The parade pro ceeded down Main Street thence to the high school ball grounds where the ceremonies took place. The demonstration unit and the 28-piece band were completely surrounded by the large crowd. Cars were jammed against one another, and many spectators re mained in their cars which were parked near by. The 28-piece band gave a very interesting concert under the direction of H. Weber, Warrant Official. During the concert, J. | Lionel Cioteau, a member of the 7th Cavalry Band was loudly ap plauded for his singing of South of the Border, Singing Hills and Blue Hawaii. The second half of the concert was under the direction of Assistant Director, J. W. Flee man. Bill Urton, local Legionnaire, was in charge of the ceremonies and introduced Past Department Commander, Tom Sawyer of Gil bert, guest speaker of the evening. The speech given by Mr. Sawyer j was very well acclaimed by the j audience and following is a brief , synopsis of the speech he gave. First, he pointed out that 23 ! year s ago we entered a war to make the world safe for Democracy i and since emerging from that war we have been in somewhat of a j trance. For more than a decade | afterwards we deceived ourselves I into believing that we had natural I law, had overcome the forces of j change, had established an equili ! brium in the affairs of governments !by transmitting to other peoples, yes, even thrusting upon them our cherished democratic form of gov i ernment. Even when these de mocracies began to we I showed no alarm. The people were just not ready for democracy, so I what of it. We couldn’t be con j cerned. Hadn’t we learned our j lesson ( so why mix up with any i more European wrangling? In j short, we were through! | We agreed with other strong I nations to call a holiday on naval ' building and even went so far as I to junk hundreds of tons of our own navy. Sure, we led the way toward peace for a decade or more but in 1935 those who cared to take notice could readily see we no longer lead the way toward peace. The holiday was over. Other nations were in a race to ward war. Yet we, as a whole, refused to take notice. We still considered ourselves as living on the richest and most God-blest country in the world. We took the attitude “God’s in his Heaven, all’s well with the world.’’ But not so in 1931-32 in Manchuria because things were not well there at all. Japan was breaking the Nine- Power Treaty, the Kellog-Briand Pact toward Outlaw War and the League of Nations Covenant. With little force they entered Manchur iia and set up a new dependency !of Manchucuo. We refused to notice or take any action. We needed the market of Japan. In 1935 things were not so well with Ethiopa when Mussolini de cided Christian Italy should de velop its resources.
