THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER Published Every Thursday Entered as seco' d-class matter Inarch 7, 1930, at the post office at Coolidge, Arizonr. under the Act >f March 3, 1879. HOOPER A HOf PER Publishers One Year In Pinal County - One Year, Out*d 3 Pinal County $ 2 - 00 DON’T KILL THE GOOSE! In a recen editorial, th * Lansing, Michigan, Journal s .id: ‘Public i ttention has )een directed to the disburse r ent of what is termed the primary school money. That i oney is chief 1/ derived from taxation of railroads. Not so r anv years ag > there was a popular fiction to the effect t’ at the railroads could pay anything the state demanded. Put limes have changed. Because of excessive taxation a .a excessive r gulations, the railroads are ha\ing a tough t ne. When wi dry up sources of taxation we do it at our c-.vn peril.” During years when public spending has been at rec* o d Mights, the stream of legislation inimical to business oiid to profit has been at flood proportions. We have, in effeci’, said to business: ‘‘Give us more and more money” - -and on the other hand, we have said, ‘‘The law and g 'Vernment competition will see to it that you earn less and less.” That policy has been largely responsible for the f ilure of government revenue to meet government outgo —and thus has been largely responsible for our $45,000,- 000,000 national debt. In the cast of the railroads, it i s evident that our whole regulatory policy must be if they are to be placed on an equitable footing with other carriers, aud are to be able to contribute their full share to the na tional economy. In the case of my other industries, the Situation is about the same. Government can’t fight in dustry, destroy industry and hamstring industry—and then expect industry to come through with incredible sums of money to keep a topheavy political machine in operation. Let’s hope the lesson has been learned. At this time, with a fifteen or twenty billion dollar defense program underway, the government needs every nickel it can get. And it can’t get it by killing business. It can get if only from industry which is earning enough money to pay the s aggering bill government imposes on it. o THE MEANING OF DEMOCRACY Today this country stands unified, devoted to the T ’•oposiiion th; t here, if nowhere else in the world, de mocracy shall be preserved and made secure. And the people are coming to realize that the pre servation of tae democratic system involves more than i .erelv spending billions for military weapons, important as that is The preservation of democracy means that we must again analyze the meaning of democracy and again return to those principles of which the nation was founded. Those principles are simple and basic. Certain powers were given to government—the powers were re s rved to the people. The founders realized that govern ment is a non-producer—that all production and creation r ust come frem the individual. And they realized that s rict limitatior of the activities of government was neces s vry if freedom was to live. In recent years we have been drifting away from t ue democratic government. We have put government into business. We have all but destroyed the rights of the states. We have gone a long way toward the ruinous theory that government owes everyone a living. We have destroyed local independence, local pride, local self-suf ficiency. We have become a nation of beggars, feeding at t ,e public trough. This has cost Ug tens of billions in taxes and increased Federal debt. Yet, serious as that problem is, it is the least important phase of the trend. Vitally important has L en the change for the worse in the American character —the loss of those traditional characteristics of independ ence and self-reliance. Dependence always breeds dic tatorship. Dependence ahvays menaces liberty, and the democratic way of life. If democracy is to live, the democratic virtues of self reliance and independence must come back into their! ow*n. Government must again be confined to those dutiesj given it by the Constitution. Industry and individuals must realize again that they can no longer expect manna fro mWashington for sustenance. Then that democracy; of which we talk so much in idle phrases will really sur vive. 1 hen we shall be strong and secure. — o LABOR AND THE FARMER * Labor and farmers have much in common,” said President Fred H. Sexauer of the Dairymen’s League Co operative Association of New York, recently. But, he added, “that does not mean domination of farmers or their organizations by organized labor. It does not mean that they could or can tell farm organizations which farmers shall or shall not be members. Labor unions should represent labor, and farm organizations should r< - present farmers and . . . tney should meet as equals.” That is sound policy. Short-sighted efforts of some 1; bor groups to “gang up” on agriculture have met with the short shrilt they deserve. Agriculture has always! b en willing to confer with workers on any common problem, in a spirit of fairness and equality—but agricul ture will not submit to labor control or racketeering. Shoots Deadly Colorado Rapids At Night In Frail Canvas Canoe ' v... - i . . • i —— I A 1200 mile trip down the deadly Colorado River in a small can vas canoe, the first trip of its kind to result other than fatally, all but ended in death for Charles F. Mann, of York, Pa. Mann paddled into Ferry, | Arizona, cut and bruised from 20 days of battling with the "roughest water in America”. At Green River, Wyoming, where he started, veteran river men warned him he would never come through alive. Only one i of those who tried it before him ! survived, and this one used a 400- I pound cedar boat. Mann’s craft, a kayak, weighed 35 pounds. "In the scores of rapids through out the river the velocity of the water was from 15 to 30 miles an hour,” he said. In these rapids were hundreds of ‘drop overs’, or fails, from five to fifteen feet high. In some places the river was only 50 feet wide, and the granite walls rose straight up from the watar 2090 feet. Often there was no rim of rock or bit of shore to camp on, so that long before dark I always started looking for a place to tie up for the night. "Late one afternoon I began look j ing for a ‘tie-up’, but there wasn’t any. The walls were sheer rock for mile after mile. The water was fast and rough, and soon it grew so AS IT APPEARS TO Your Congressman By JOHN R. MURDOCK What does a congressman do ether than voting on bills? He ha s many other duties aside from leg -1 islative tasks, and that is particul arly true of a Western Congress- I man whose State is so largely con trolled by the Federal Government and where there is such a multi-! plieity of Federal contacts and interests. Perhaps the readers of . this item would be interested in ; some of those duties, so I shall ' vary this column and try to illu i strate some other phases of the | job. - One day this week I dropped down to the Interior Department Ito discuss with Mr. Burlew and ! Commissioner John Page regard -1 ing a piece of land lying along the ! Colorado River, which ought to be watered and offered as homes for I ex-service men who can avail themselves of it. This is not the ! first time I have met these gentle men to discuss the same thing. A j few miles above old Fot Monave there is a good site on the Colo rado River for pumping plant, and on the Arizona side are about 2800 acres,, and on the Nevada side about 3200 acres on which water may be pumped from the Colorado River at no great cost. Governor: Scrugham and I are planning to j have this land cleared by CCCj workers and have arranged under the five-acre tract law to make it available. A considerable sum of 1 money has been appropriated to be used for this very purpose. ! 1 I was told at Commissioner Page’s office that a crew of re clamation engineers were at work on the site now, but because of; the hot weather they wished .to ' defer completion of the survey un- ; ; til the cooler months. Naturally i I urged that they continue with I the survey, even if their force j j must be divided, part working in i the cool of the morning and the ! other in the cool of the evening. Assurances were given that the , work would be expediated. There’s many a slip "between cup and lip.” Congressman Scrug ham and I have worked together since 1937, and he long before that time, to develop home supply of strategic minerals. It is known that a large area around Boulder Dam is very rich in such minerals. We got through an appropriation for $2,000,000 to build a plant some place near Boulder Dam to treat ore s electrolytically, but word got around last week that no such plant would be built. One of my purposes in visiting the of ficials of the U. S. Bureau of Mines was to find out if any bureaucrat does or can openly de fy and wishes of Congress. It’s a long story but I don’t believe the | wishes of Congress will be ignored j finally. It takes a lot of effort to 1 get some administrative officalg to jdo what is the evident intent of, Congress that they shall do. If a i plant to use cheap power from THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER ’ dark I could hardly see. “Suddenly up ahead I heard the I water roaring. That meant that I was close to rapids again. If I got > into them now, in the darkness, I would be sure to crack up and prob , ably would be killed among the 1 rocks. "The water was racing at a good 30 miles an hour. I was about ready to give up when I remembered a flashlight I bad along. The batteries were fresh and gave a good strong light. I clinched it between my knees and held it there like a head light, with both hands free to work the canoe. 1 just had time to grab the paddle again before I hit the rapids. “The rocks kicked up waves 10 to 15 feet high, and a half dozen times the boat almost turned over. Once I shot over a falls and dropped about 12 feet. But the canoe righted and we raced along. Thanks to the light, we missed the big rocks, and finally got down to smooth water again. Playing the light along the the shore, I spotted a strip of rock to camp on I was so worn out I could go no further.” Mann emerged from his long trip covered with cuts and bruises, and his canoe had to be patched in twenty-two places.He says he wants to make the trip again. Boulder Dam is located near the Dam, evidently a lot of ore, pos sibly nickel as well as maganese, both from Nevada and Arizona. I could be treated there. ! The tightening of the Border situation in our efforts to keep dangerous aliens from entering caused great business losses at Nogale s and other border towns. My two visits to the State Depart ment this week to talk over mat ters with Mr. Coulter were to I carry in person letters, telegrams, and protests from business men and Chamber of Commerce con cerning these necessary but rather ! drastic regulations. One thing asked of the State Department was that an increased clerical force be provided. After these conference's tl\ e Department promised to increase their staff at Nogales and other border towns, thus tending to alleviate the situa- I tion. i Space will permit only mention of conferences with Rural Electri fication officials concerning R. E. A. projects in Arizona; with Sur plus Commodity Corporation offi cials about proper consideration for Arizona grapefruit; with Col. Louis Johnson concerning defense measures: and with Sidney Hill man concerning educational phases of adequate national preparedness, j Thi s government of ours is very complex. Difficult as it is to get the right kind of laws passed very much depends upon the admin istration of those laws. Your Congressman must give some at tention to administrative applica tion of the laws. Telegram of July 20: President j signed Boulder Canyon Project Adjustment Act. Conference report ; accepted without Senate amend | ment, leaving measure as original j ly passed by House. o Parked Truck Is Destroyed By Fire A truck loaded with a combine owned and driven by Noris Kurtz 1 jof Coolidge was completely de-! j stroyed by fire last Sunday night ! near Summit Camp. The driver 1 : had pulled off the highway to camp 1 ; for the night and had fallen j asleep. The cause of the fire was' not determined. The estimated : loss was about $3,500.
