OÜB STAJÍDABD Right, Truth, Justice in all our dealings with the public; political, social and industrial; a sence of responsibility to our constituea cy and our loyalty to the interests of Holbrook and Navajo county. Tax-Exempt Securities It is estimated ten billion dollars of tax-exempt se curities are afloat in our country. They are municipal bonds and bonds of federal and - state land banks and farm loan organizations. The public utility or banking firm that is in private ownership to get capital or loan money on farm mort gages must complete on securities where the tax rate is often as high as the rate of interest should be. How can such public service utilities and farm loan banks get capital to extend their service to the farmers at low rates in competition with tax-exempt municipal securities and tax-exempt farm loans? Yet taxable private capital must carry three-fourths of the public service utilities and farm loans at expense pf the people. I: The Paper Industry , The American paper mill industry is thus summariz ed by the Boston News Bureau: German newsprint is responsible for present dulness of the trade; the operating average of all domestic print mills is not above 70 per cent. Hugo Stinnes is offering German newsprint at $50 a ton on the dock at New York. This companes with a domestic price at 80. The reason is no secret. German paper mill workers are getting weekly wages with a gold equivalent of $5.84. Even with the 25 per cent increase they are demanding', hii is not greatly over the daily wage of the American operative. The willingness to work for these wages is partly explained by the fact that the mark has a purchas ing power within Germany 3 times its international value. ' The other end of the story is cheap freight. At least five of the big New York dailies are using foreign news print, and the total consumption of this paper in New York alone, by newspapers, will amount to about 48,000 tons a year. Jlanufacturers are unanimous in declaring that the German price of $50 per ton is $15 a ton below their costs, and many mills cannot b.reak even on $80-4-cent-paper. Latest government report indicates very little change in consumption of stocks, but curtailed production. Ger man imports, averaging 9000 tons a month, amount to less than 5 per cent of our consumption. Fawncy! How Crude! Our ultra-modern educationists insist that school text books should all be rewritten. They see in H. G Wells's "Outline of History" a model book for the pre sent dav oupiL and believe that the style of text books on other subjects should be patterned after it. Ameri can pupils have got along verywell for upwards of i centurv on histories written by American authors. The brand of patriotism that those volumes have inculcated in the youthful mind helped to make the men who have managed this -country s ' destinies for a hundred years. Would it not be well to let well enough alone and con tinue the educational policies that have demonstrated their worth to so many generations? , Scat! You Rest!! There is no getting away from the fact that the bete noire of the armaments conference is the AngloJapanese alliance. With that impending menace to complete un derstanding between the United States, Great Britain, and Japan out of the way, the conference should move steadily forward to substantial accomplishment, An Industrial Center Los Angeles is a shining example of the fact that in ' 1 1 t A. Jl I 1 1 dustnai development ana community aeveiopment go hand in hand. For years Los Angeles was known as a "millionaries' playground." Slowly but surely the value of industries was recog nized by that city,' and for some years past its Chamber of Commerce has been backing every movement that looked to the future industrial growth of Los Angeles and the surrounding country. Industrial development has been its slogan and from a show place and recreation point for the seasonal tour ist, Los Angeles has emerged as one of the great manu facturing centers of this nation. It has reached a point where its immense industries draw other industries. As a city it has maintained satisfactory working conditions for the employe and the investor, and today Los Anéeles is probably the finest example of the result of concerted community action for industrial growth, that can be found in this nation. This is not an advertisement for Los Angele, but a tip to other western cities to go out and do likewise with tht opportunities now afforded for industrial growth in ! Extern states.

KANSAS CITY STOCK MARKET Cattle and Hogs Steady to Lower Lambs Higher, Active Another heavy run of short fed cattle in Chicago, follow ing last week s slow trade there, added further weak ness to the market, and caused a rather slow trade at points that had moderate receipts.

A curious thing about wireless telegraphy is the way it is affected by sunrise and sunset.' Trans-Atlantic aitmnlo íinrincr thl rlov to rt in variably clear, but those received . and guidance in all our pub- at sunrise and sunset are said to In accordance with the eld est of American customs, and obedient to the prompt ing of our hearts., we pause once more at the close of autumn to publicly express, through observance of an ther Tnanksgivmg Day, our sincere gratitude to Almigh ty God for His watchful care and continued blessings. It may be that during the Dast vear we have, allowed our minds to dwell on condi tions calculated to diáturb our Deace and at times to cause us to grow pessimistic. Yet only to the careless thinker will it appear that we have small reason to be thankful at this timé. As a nation we cannot find any where on this globe a people who have been more favored with the good things of life, or who are more happily sit uated. Compared with the lot of other nations, we can truthfullv sav that we have Iknown no want or suffering Our harvests have been a bundant, and in a world-wide stagnation of business we have experienced less incon venience and distress than any country. We need look no farther in search of cause for thanks giving than to visualize the little band of. Pilgrims fac. ing the rigors-of a New Eng land winter and struggling for their lives against hostile Indians, and in contrast to picture the mighty Republic which thev rounded and in which we enioy the privile ges and responsibilities of citizenship. If the fathers felt bound under such cir cumstances to acknowledge the blessing of a Divine Pro vidence, how much more re verently should we, who en iov to the full the countless advantage of modern civili zation, thank the Giver of all eood. We have great cause for thankfulness that America has taken the lead among the nations of the world in an effort to lessen the bur den of armaments, and thro ugh mutual understanding to remove the menace of fu ture wars. In our acknow ledgement of God's guidance in the past, let us not fail to offer prayer for His blessing on and guidance in the; in ternational Conference at Washington, to the end that the splendid program pro posed by our 'government may be accepted not only in principle but also in fact by the other powers of the world. Arizona has ' abundant cause for thanksgiving. Dur ing the past year we have been spared calamity. Peace- has prevailed within our borders, and " industrial dis turbance has not arisen to interfere with the orderly development of our rescor ces. The long and trying period of drouth which prov ed as serious a factor in the existence of our live-stock industry has very happily been ended and business con ditions generally indicate that the gradual return of prosperity is well under, way. Our state has keen singular 1 favored in the matter of natural resources, to the ful development oí whicn' we press forward with confi dence and enthusiasm, know ing that our future import- ance as a state is dennite and certain. All these, and kindred blessings, whether they be material social or spiritual, have been vouchsafed to us bv the gracious favor of Al mighty God who shapes and directs the destiny of na- ions, and who watches over the individual. It is most fitting, therefore, that we as a people, publicly and unitedly, express to Him our reverent thanks for them all, and invoke his continued aid 3 ORDER OF NOTICE THEREON In the District Court of the United States for the District of Arizona.
