Trusting To Luck
Do vou believe in luck? When you hear a Holbrook
man say of another vvno nas naa a streaK oi success:
he was born lucky," do you side in with him, or do you
feel that something more than luck entered in? Personal
ly, we've never yet seen a successful man who earned
success by trusting wholly to luck. For it isn't one of the
foundations of making gOod. There must be some brain
work, some physical energy exerted and a lot of sweat
smiled if vou win out in this world, even when you have
luck with you. Give the man who makes good credit for
if íínn'f rWrQfr frnm his efforts hv divine" trie credit 10

luck. It is true that it sometimes places men in good
positions, but it is also true that something other than
luck is reauired to hold that position, and to get it down
to a point where you can do the work required as well or
even better than anybody else.
Did you know that intelligent and judicious advertís
ing doesn't cost the man who pays the bill a cent? Well
then, who DOES pay for the advertising if the merchant
himself doesn't? The unwise patron of the store that
does NOT advertise is the one who pays for advertising
By advertising, a merchant increases his turnovers and
sells four or five times as much merchandise as he would
if he did not advertise. The real cost of selling that
merchandise is reduced with each turnover. Thus, the
amount he invested in advertising comes back to him and
he is enabled to do business on a closer margin of profit
on each turnover than the merchant who doesn't use ad
vertising to increase the volume of business. So, after-
all, the merchant who advertises doesn't pay for his ad
vertisements, neither does his customers. It's the pat
rons of the UNADVERTISED store who pay for them.
In recent prosperous years careless of the exactions levied
upon them by commission men and buyers, the pinch of hard
times is awakening the stockmen to the need of co-operative
marketing1 of their products. The extortionists and the possibili
ties of thwarting them formed the chief topic of the group con
versations during the convention, and while not given unusual
prominence in the proceedings is reflected in Resolution 3, epitom
Others who stand between the stockmen and the consumer
are grabbing 50 to 80 percent of the revenue derived from the
consumer; the producers themselves getting the pittance left, los
ing money and facing rum and the destruction of their great
But they begi:- to realize that by co-operation, by standing
together, they can both reduce the price to the consumer- and in
crease their own share of the profits assuring to both consumer
and producer protection from the intermediate and, in the last
analysis, in many instances unnecessary profiteers.
They are beginning to understand their potential power and
how simple it all is, meaning as it does merely protective business
organization of a few hundred of the larger producers who, if they
will, may wield as great an influence over the markets and prices
as they do over the ranges.
Tariff, freight rates, grazing fees, cost of supplies all these
are factors influencing cost of production and marketing. But
more vastly important in its bearing on revenue to the producer
and saving to the consumer is the elimination or, at least, strong
regulation of the commission men and packers now battening
The Day of Small Change
Most Holbrook poeple are careless with small coins,
and show little respect for or count as valuable the nickel,
dime or even the two-bit piece. Altogether they are rat
ed as "small change," easily disposed of and seldom
counted. Yet some important houses are founded on
business that is handled with these small coins. The
Woolworth tower in New York, the world's tallest build
ing, was built from the profit of stores in which no article
was sold for more than ten cents.
A firm that deals in articles selling for 25 cents has
but recently paid 2,000,000 for a new business home in
the shopping district of Boston. Its ability to purchase
that home and maintain it did not come from sales that
ran into many dollars to a customer, but from many
thousands and buying with nickels, dimes and quarters.
It is a monument to the value of small change, and shows
what can be done when the public need of small things is
capitalized and the need met.
It is a pretty good idea to remember these things,
and to put more value on small coins. It is also well to
remember, whether you are spending small coin or sell
ing something for small coin, that while the profit is not
great there is good money in it when many thousands are
buying. Some of the biggest and richest concerns in the
world have become so through being satisified with small

1. As three Arizona bankers are to be appointed to place loans
in this state from the $50,000,000 livestock pool and it is necessary
to the livestock industry of the state, requested that one be from the
southern part of state, one from central and one from northern.
2. Request adjournment of congress be postponed until the recent
measures affecting livestock industry are acted upon.
3. Authorizing the presidents of the two associations and the
committee appointed at the cattle growers meeting last winter to study
into co-operative marketing possibilities and to formulate such market
ing systems within this state as may be found practical and encourage
the counties each to organize smaller units along Similar or other
lines that may be beneficial in the marketing of products.
4. As prices of livestock on foot have declined approximately 60
per cent in 12 months, consumers of the state are to be asked through
chambers of commerce, and other civic bodies to demand a correspond
ing reduction in retail prices of meat and meat products and to insist
that Arizona products, all things being equal, be given preference so
that the industry will benefit and the money be kept in circulation in
5. Asks our congressmen to use every effort to have present tariff
bill changed to afford protection to hides, pelts, dressed meats and
6. Urges upon the county boards of supervisors all possible econ
omies in the coming year and that expenditures not immediately nec
essary be deferred until times are better
7. Asks Arizona Tax commission meeting at Nogales this month
to reduce tax valuations of livestock at least 50 per cent and on graz
ing lands 25 per cent, and that in future the commission meet more
centrally to make it easier for taxpayers to attend.
8. Urging the state loan board to replace at earliest possible
date the $692,932.60 received as interest on deferred payments of
state land sales and recently reported by the state land commissioner
to have been improperly segregated and loaned along with the money
received as payments on principal.
9. Thanks the railroads in the state for timely relief last spring
by reduction of rates and for excellent service given the livestock men
during the emergency.
10. As it is necessary for livestock men to know freight rates in
advance so that contracts may be made and there is a great amount of
stock to be moved this fall, requests present emergency rates be ex
tended to November 15.
11. Freight rates on livestock unreasonable and prohibitive, and
action of American National Live Stock association in instituting hear
ings before the interstate commerce commission to revoke the last
35 per cent increase in freight on livestock in the western group and
of 25 per cent in the Mountain Pacific group is heartily endorsed.
12. Greatly detrimental to ranges north of Colorado River to
permit Utah sheep and cattle to graze there and asks state legislature
to prohibit or regulate.
13. Endorses French-Capper "Truth in Fabrics" bill.
14. Asks department of agriculture -and congress to appropriate
the amount requested by U. S. biological survey for carrying on work
of destruction of predatory animals and rodents.
15. Thanks citizens of Flagstaff, committee on entertainment,
management of Orpheum theatre, musicians and Rebekahs for helpful
courtesy during convention.
16. Thanks state livestock agent of the A. T. & S. F. railway
for his years of invaluable service to state livestock interests.
17. National forest ranges are in deplorable condition because of
continued drought, lack of food and water, causing numerous losses of
livestock, and the forester is requested, to reduce grazing fees on all
classes of livestock in Arizona for 1921 and extend time of payment
of grazing fees for 1921 season from Sept. 1 to Dec 1, 1921.
18. Assumption by interstate commerce commission of jurisdic
tion over intra-state as well as interstate rates unwarranted and un
constitutional encroachment upon rights and powers of the'
states and likely to hadicap industries and commerce; and
asks that the transportation act of 1920 be at once amended to assure
to the individual states absolute control over intra-state rates.

salaries have been reduced in the last

were reduced and the force was cut
