Note Cock HEIGHTENED INTEREST in the need for additional revenue foi repair and maintenance of city street* la noted in every section of Arizona. Tbia la particularly true with the advent of petitiona for an initiative law which would give in corporated towna and cltiea a ahare of Kaa taa collections. Thla pro poaal would mean a great deal to Coolidge Baaed upon the amount of revenue distributed in January Coolidge would have received nearly f 1.600 for that month. And thla sum will continue to grow as more and more new cars are avail able and more and more tourists drive the highways of Arizona. THE PROPOSED LAW would give the cities and towna in eat h county one-third of the amount normally received present ly for exclusive county use. These moneys would be earmarked for exclusive use on the streets. Peti tions now in circulation should be signed by every individual who de sires these added funds for street repair and maintenance In Coo lidge. THERE ARE JUST A few days left in which to register to vote In the city election. Reg istration books will close at 5 p. rn. ot. next Thursday and the elec tion will be held May 27th. There are less than SOU registered to date and city officials believe there should be between TOO and 800 voters registered. SO PAR NO CANDIDATE for the city council has made public the policy he intends to pursue if elected. This seems to us to leave the voter suspended in midair. From the list of 16 can didates It will not be difficult to choose a council of seven men ca pable of handling the affairs of the city. But. how are they to be chosen by the voters. Is It to be on a personal basis* Or because they are good fellows? We don’t believe either Is the way to select the men who are asking for the privilege of running Coolidge. WOULDN’T IT BE a more sensible method If the candidates themselves would tell the people what they stand for? Do they believe In a progressive building policy for Coolidge? Are they in agreement with present city ordinance# and If not what do they propose to do about them? We believe the voters are entitled to know because we do not believe that we or any other voter can mahe an Intelligent selection with no more Information than is now available. o Teachers Send Louis Taylor To Phoenix Meeting Local Faculties Vote To Back Proposed Measure For Increased State Aid To Schools Louis Taylor, member of the Pinal county school system since 1934. will represent Coolidge at a special meeting of the Arisons Ed ucation Association delegate sembly called for Saturday in Phoenix to discuss a proposed plan U increase slate aid to the schools. Taylor goes to the assembly with instructions from Coolidge teachers to back the immediate sponsoring of an Initiative measure. At a faculty meeting Tuesday afternoon, called by R. W. Taylor, teachers of Coolidge elementary achoois and high school expressed their views on the contemplated ac tion of the AEA which would spon sor an Initiative measure to in crease state aid. All Coolidge teachers were present at Tuesday's meeting. Both AEA members and non-members were out-spoken in their support of the proposed AEA meve and agreed to give financial support to a campaign to get the necessary initiative measure start ed. The proposed measure, basis of the unprecedented calling of a spe cial delegate assembly, would not cnly increase the amount paid by the state for each pupil but would also pay high achoois and elemen tary schools the same amount per pupil. At the present time the state pays $65.00 for each elemen tary pupil and $95 for each high school pupil. At Saturday’s meeting delegates from schools throughout the state will present the views of their lo cal teachers on the amount of the increase as well as on the feasi bility of starting an initiative measure now. More than 15.000 names will be necessary on petitions to be filed before July 4 if the measure is to come up this year. Coolidge teachers feel that now la the time to begin a drive for Increased state aid and are willing to back np their belief with indi vidual campaign contributions. o • Sgt. James H. Harris.
