REGISTRATION FOR
toting In the first Cooiidge city
♦-lo tion is the DUTY of every eligi
ble citizen . . . and then the second,
and most important duty la to vote
in the city election. Most obvl
oua evidence of decadence in a city
or town la the lack of interest in
municipal voting Os course it is
not to be expected there will be a
lack of interest in this first local
election Hut there Is a definite
•lowness in registration.
THE QUESTION OF
whether or not an office of the
Oi'A is to be maintained in Pinal
county has. apparently, been dump
ed squarely into the lap of Uoolidge
Ohamber of Commerce. It will be
recalled that all offices of the OPA
In Pinal county were consolidated
with the Florence office several
months ago and St now developes
that Florence does not have the
manpower to continue the opera
tion. Other towns are uninterested
and certainly what interest or re
gaid in and for the OPA which can
be generated in Cooiidge is pas
sive Th* re is the question of suit
able quarters and the payment of .
rent which the divisional office in
Phoenix contends should be paid
locally.
NOW THAT RATIONING
is no longer the major operation
of OPA <»ith the exception of
sugar* folks generally would Just
as soon be rid of it. And they feel
this wsy despite their desire for
price control But price control
comes only with eternal vigilance
even though a great many stores,
honestly operated, wrlll abide by
OPA edicts
MAJOR CRITICISM
of the OPA is that it has not stop
ped the advancing tide of rising
prices. That criticism of OPA is
somewhat unfair because OPA is
but one arm of government and
could not control action of other
governmental agencies. But most
serious criticism of tbe pricing
agency is that it arbitrarily permits
the price of a new product and oft
time an Inferior product, by a new
firm to return a profit to the manu
facturer. tbe wholesaler and the re
tailer while at the same time OPA
denies the original manufacturer
of a similar product to raise prices
sufficiently to cover production
costs.
COOLIDGE CAME
wttbtn 1200 of reaching its Red
Cross quota last week when total
collections reached 12.300. Surely
there should he another 1 200 avail
able so that the stigma of failing
to be generous in a humanitarian
effort may not be charged to Coo

WITH RETAIL SALES

high level Cooiidge this week re
ceived $1,654.79 as her share of
state sales tax collected during the
month of March for sales during
February This check brings the to
tal sales tAx shared with Cooiidge
to $4,516.93 for the first three
months Cooiidge ha?, been eligible
Should this rate continue, snd
every indication Is thst not much
drop is expected. Cooiidge will re
ceive more than SIB,OOO from sale?
tax revenues this year.
POLITICS AS THE
weather, will soon be warm. The
supervisors race for district 3
which comprises all of the valley
area and South Florence, has re
solved itself into a two-man con
test between Frank Williams of
Casa Grande and C. W. Stokes of
COolidge. Bob Denton, who has
given a great many year* of public
service to the board of supervisors
this week announced he would not
be a candidate for re-election
Since the supervisor from this dis
trict has traditionally come from
Casa Grande this is sure to be an
interesting contest and one which
will create a great deal of local In
terest.
