The biggest thing we can do for Winslow during 1927 is
to live in it, work in it, buy in it, play in it, trust in it, and
boost lor it. The results are sure. Mere population beauty,
convenience, wealth and- natural surroundings aie fine, but
it takes Initiative to make things go.
The proposition of “trading at home has been too often
construed for the help of the merchant alone. Th ei £ n °
greater economic fallacy. The merchant may gam the nist
or primary benefit; the result may show up first m his own
cash register; but by no means is the business man the
sole heir of local patronage. We are all business people.
It is a broad term, and includes those who toil or add any
thing to the total of human welfare.
The merchant, the banker, the manufacturer, the taimei,
thd housewife, the teacher, the preacher, the lawyer, the
doctor, the laborer, the contractor —in short, the butchei,
the baker, the candle-stick maker ’ are all in the same class
when it comes to making Winslow what it should be in 1927.
Set any one of these trades or professions a-going and all
the rest are benefitted all the way up or down the line. If
one prospers, the others he deals with or pays wages to are
helped accordingly. It means more savings, more bank de
posits and more business.
We are living in an age of keen competition with the big
cities. That the large city has its advantages and accommo
dations, all will admit. But it has its disadvantages. And
every city started as a village. 11 life is to survive in its ful
ness and richness and culture in the suburban and rural sec
tions, and in the smaller cities and towns of this country, the
economic side of the Question must be given first consideia
tion. With economic prosperity all would have to move out.
This includes production first, then marketing and distribu
tion. . . „ . ___ . , ,
The business of the Winslow citizen for 192 1 is to do
business here, if it can be done with reason and propriety.
.And we believe it can. Every dollar spent in Winslow makes
• it that much easier for the other fellow to spend his money
' here, and so on, like any other cumulative dividend.
Investing in Winslow is like getting compound interest,
2 with the privilege still to cash in on the principal.
• n
According to reports Germany plans a six-yeai piogiam
• of road building, to comprise about 9000 miles of auto roads
Jto attract tourists. At $40,000 a mile, this would cost $360,-
• 000,000, a good investment if Germany’s laws were made to
2 invite the outsiders.
The United States spends about twice as much every
• year lor highways as Germany plans to spend in six yeais.^
The United States is building hundreds of thousands of
• miles of highways to connect every city, town and hamlet.
Almost every person in this nation can be reached by tel
-1 ephone, and, if necessary, we could move practically every
• person by automobile at the same time.
We are rapidly learning that a proper road and a proper
- foundation, or base, are the primary requirements for a good
2 road. Then comes the problem of protecting the road base
• with a suitable wearing surface which will save the road
• from water which makes rnud, and from which blows away
2 the precious, fine material.
• Oil and its by-product, asphalt, have been utilized by our
2 engineers to surface our highways at a minimum of expense,
•to meet varying traffic requirements. From the thin coat of
2 lead oil to the heaviest'asphaltic concrete, and sheet asphalt
- to waterproof and cushion cement concrete road base, the Un
ited States is building roads second to none in the world.
It would have been impossible to build such roads as w r e
• now enjoy, without the aid of giant tractors and modern road
1 equipment which move dirt and rock more rapidly than thous
ands of men could have done a few years ago.
Rome may have built a few roads for the emperors; we
2 build for the masses.
. . o
Boulevard and crossing stops have proved to be a fine
ihing in many large and small cities, by preventing accidents
which otherwise would occur in the hurry and bustle of mod
ern day life with the automobile.
Within the past few weeks it has been suggested to us
[hat to advocate a stop regulation covering all intersections
that lead on to 2nd street, Winslow’s main thoroughfare,
Would be a good thing.
That such a regulation would prevent accidents goes
without saying, so; although the idea was not ours but has
come to us from several sources —from people owning auto
mobiles and from pedestrians, we believe that a stop ordin
ance should be enacted in Winslow to force every driver ot
any sort of vehicle to come to a full stop before turning on to
Second Street at the following intersections: Kinsley, War
ren, Winslow and Berry avenues, and possibly one or two
more further west, if traffic is as heavy as it is from those
So just to start the ball rolling we would be glad to print
letters from our readers of any reasonable length touching
on this subject, wether for or against the suggestion.
Col. Fred Breen of the Coconino Sun is bemoaning the
fact that the Acme Orange and Hen Farms Company of Tex
as refuse to open their mail, included in which the Colonel had
“requested a little financial information.” Probably he is in
the same boat as a number of other newspapers about the
state who ran the Acme Farms ad, then when they sent in
their bills, the envelopes came back marked “Refused.” But
such firms as this don’t get by very long until Uncle Sam
grabs them for using the mails to defraud.

While Imperial Valley towns are
rejoicing over the news that the
house irrigation committee has
reported the Swing-Johnson bill
authorizing construction o£ a flood
control, irrigation add power dam
at Boulder canyon; on the Colora
do-rt-ver, Arizona is wondering if
her hhncl is to be forced for, a final
showdown. In other words, is the
Colorado river lost already, so far
as Arizona’s plans are concerned?
There is no need reviewing the
history of discussion over the mud
dy waters of the river, a discus
sion that has bc«u'almost as mud
dy, as the water itself.
Arizona refused to _ ratify the
seven-state compact on the grounds
that it was unfair to her in the
division of lower basin water.
Many opinions have been written
as to Arizona’s ultimate rights,
among that of John Mason
Ross and Janies S. Casey, Bisbee
who wrote in a letter to
The Star last April that “it must
be frankly admitted that the Colo
lado river, so far as its develop
ment is concerned, has been with
drawn by the nation from the sov
ereignty of the state of Arizona
and must be regarded as a nation
al asset.”
The opinion also said:
“The whole question is this: If
the state of Arizona has certain
rights, those rights should be safe
guarded. They -cannot be safe
guarded until they are ascertain
ed. If adoption of the (Santa Fe)
pact as written involves relin
quishment of those rights, and de
lay does not work a greater pre
judice to the state rights, then we
ought to withhold adoption until
the river freezes at Yuma.
“On the other hand, if the best
interests of the state are to he sub
served by the adoption of the pact,
and such adoption does not involve
a relinquishment of state rights,
and furthermore, if it is the only
way in which development of the
river iftay be brought about, then
we ought to adopt the pact forth
“As for the right of taxation, it
is not to be controlled by the com
pact, but rather by the attributes
of dual sovereignty fixed in the
constitution of the United States
and the constitution of Arizona.
Whatever right of taxation the
state has, cannot be changed by
the adoption or rejection of the

that California has been unreason

fact remains, that in not reaching
an agreement, the chances that
Arizona’s plans and hopes would
