[WATCH# TOWERS A Compendium of W/ \ Arizona Political Comment. PHOENIX, July 25—The politi cal course to be charted by the state administration appears to be a toss-up at this time. It’s direc tion, however, is expected to be made known before the passing ot many days. Some strategists close to the governor are urging him to call a special session late in September to “straighten out a number of things.” The governor is reported to fa vor a plan of action involving a vigorous and sustained attack up on the State Supreme Court in re prisal for its recent order annul ling the governor’s “ouster” of two state industrial commission ers. The chief executive is said to be apprehensive over the possible re action of an unfavorable special session, but he is confident of his ability to create a martyr role for himself as a result of the high tribunal’s order annulling his “re moval” of the industrial commis sioners. To accomplish this, he will as cribe copper company dominance oi the court, which he suggested in his statement assailing the de cision. Should he attempt to arouse public antagonism on this score, Mr. Osborn will be hiking another page from the political manual of the late Geo. W. P. Hunt, whom the incumbent gover nor assailed for many years. Some of those closest to the governor confide he is in “some thing of a dilemma.” Should he call a special session, it is pos sible he may come out second best in a joust with the solons. Should he open a fight on the supreme court, the governor may be cited for contempt as some Phoenix lawyers anticipate he will be in any event for insinuat ing in his recent statement that the court’s decision in the indus trial commission case was dictat ed by the copper companies. These lawyers say it may be embarrassing for the governor should the supreme court call upon him to name the "many per sons” who informed him “both be fore the hearing was held, during its progress, and many times since, that the big copper compan ies of Arizona would violently op pose the ousting of Commissioner Holmes.” • That statement puts the gover nor in a position somewhat simi lar to one in which an Arizona newspaper publisher found him self back in 1928. In the final days of the senatorial race be tween U. S. Sen. Ralph H. Camer on, Republican, and Carl Hayden, making his first successful bid for a senate seat, the publisher ran a story charging a SIOO,OOO “slush fund” had been raised to beat Cameron. The late Sen. W. H. King of Utah conducted a senatorial in vestigation in Phoenix. When the publisher was asked to “name the men who told you about the ! slush fund,” the publisher said he “couldn’t remember.” At last he told Senator King the slush fund “information” was given by him “by a man on the street,” whose name the publisher couldn’t re member. Old-timers this week recalled that in every instance when sen sational charges have been made for political purposes and those bringing the charges were asked to prove them under oath, they were unable to do so. As a re sult, the public generally places little, if any. credence in unsub stantiated accusations. Several persons, according to usually reliable sources, are put ting bills into shape in prepara tion for the expected special ses sion call. Present plans are said to include the following subjects: Tax equalization, appropriation and legislation for creation of a home guard during absence of the national guard from the state, power authority, legislation to make Arizona statutes conform with federal regulations governing the employment service. From several sources it is learn ed that the governor came close to calling a special session last month. This information is part ly corroborated by revelation of GEO. Y.

Mr. Moore, in the telegrams, sought support for a request at a special session lor additional highway patrolmen. Rome of the governor’s contact men think the chief executive could fare better at a special ses sion than he did in the regular. p i° n than he did in the regular. 1 hey say they are willing to “meet the leggislative leaders half way.” The same source cnonfided: “It was unfortunate that during the regular session the governor was devoting too much time and at tention to his ill-starred effort to oust the industrial commission and was unavailable for concilia tory conferences with senate and house leaders.” Statisticians have figured it cost $17,800 in cash for the gov ernor’s unsuccessful hid for some 90 odd jobs in his thwarted ouster of two state industrial commis sioners. They present these figures for the 35-day hearing: Governor’s salary, $700; salaries of two com missioners, $1120; cost of tran script, (paid front governor’s con tingent fund) $1250; salaries of 13 governor’s office and commission employes, $3185; salaries of as sistant attorney general and aids, 1 $030; extra janitor for supreme j court chambers, $175; extra light, ; power, stationery (estimated), j $200; special counsel for governor and commissioners, (six lawyers at average of SSO each per court day) $10,500; total cash outlay, $17,500. Columbus Giragi, after several intimate talks with Governor Os born, reports the chief executive is an unhappy man. A portion of the gubernatorial gloom is at tributed by Columnist Giragi to revelations concerning the gover nor’s two aids in the attempt to oust Commissioners L. C. Holmes and Lynn Lockhart. For the first time in newspap ers of general circulation, Mr. Giragi revealed that Clarence Flynn “served a term in the Mon tana State prison upon being con victed of grand larceny” and that George Coffin, Phoenix truck op erator, “owed the industrial com mission some SOOOO in premiums which he neglected to pay.” Sam 11. Morris, Globe, chair man of the Arizona Copper Tariff board, is in Washington again to register vigorous opposition to the Doughton proposal to permit sus- pension of tariffs and excises on numerous articles, including cop i per. Mr. Morris will support his con tentions with a brief prepared by the Arizona Department of Min eral Resources, which opposes any compromising of the copper ex cise tax. The mayor of one of Arizona’s largest cities this wt*ek expressed the opinion that “no governor of Arizona can be reelected as long as the heavy demand for political jobs continues.” The municipal executive attri buted the defeat last year of Gov. Bob Jones to that executive’s in ability to pass out a sufficient number of politifal appointments. “Governor Osborn,” the mayor continued, “is in a worse position than was Governor Jones. Mr. Os born failed to get control of the industrial commission and it looks now like he will not be able to get control of the highway de partment, even if be should oust four commissioners, in time to help his campaign next year.” Tlie mayor pointed out that in the event the governor should win the first round against the high way commissioners in the Mari copa county superior court it is almost a certainty th*> commis FRIDAY JULY 25, 1941 sioners would appeal to the State Supreme court. With the usual legal delays anticipated, it is thought a final determination of the commissioners’ status could be expected before the next pri mary day. A concerted drive is underway to prevail upon taxpayers to close ly scrutinize budgets being pre pared in the 14 counties. A state ment issued by the Arizona Tax Research Association asserts that reports indicate budgets “consid erably in excess of actual needs are tentatively planned in several counties.” In Maricopa and several other counties protests already register ed by groups of taxpayers have succeeded in reducing contem plated expenditures. Walter J. Thalheimer, former mayor of Phoenix and president of the Maricopa County Taxpayers league, is leading the determined effort of a large group to reduce the cost of government in Ari zona’s most populous county. Interest continues to be express ed in tbe political plans of Joe Hunt, state treasurer, prohibited by statute from succeeding him self. Rumors connect his name with at least three state offices in next year’s campaign.
