Bstweeii the Upper and Nether Millstones Waste is the enemy of civilization. During the re cent great war the American people for the first time since early colonial days felt the pinch of stringent cir cumstances and learned to save, to conserve. The well filled bread can was more carefully scrutinized, not for fear of actual hunger to themselves but lest by inadver tance they waste some precious ounces of food which might otherwise have been used to succor starving millions far across the seas. ' This , was a salutary lesson to a young and prodigal nation, arrogant in its seemingly boundless resources. But it would seem that the lesson has not gone deep enough. We are face to face with an insidious evil in our body politic. .The evidences of it may be found in the columns of any large newspaper. The condition of affairs which will permit the farmer to receive three cents for a bushel of apples and yet per mit their retailing for several dollars works in a vicious circle. No one can put his finger on the exact cause of the condition, what one thing alone is to blame it arises not from one cause but many, confusing and conflicting elements enter into its complexity. But both the farmer and the ultimate consumer would hail with ringing salvos of delight the statesman who would cut the Gordian Knot and set them free. They are ground between the upper and nether mill stone of commerce and are "ground exceedingly small." This is a subject that if given the proper attention by statesman would meet with the highest approbation. This is our problem of wastage. Nourishing foods are allowed to rot on the ground since their sale would not bring enough to pay for the labor involved. Thousands both in this country and abroad lack for the common ne cessity of daily bread. What is the answer to this heart breaking condition? We do not know- do you? Partisanship The indvidual who, in former years, proudly boasted that he was a Democrat or a Republican because his father and grandfather before him' had been of that party affiliation, is now looked upon by the intelligent citizens as an individual of narrow and preconceived convictions. Both parties still retain suffhient of their original charac teristic to create a choice of policies and standards. But the ability and intregity of the Corporation Commissioner can be measured. On November 7 the voters of Arizona, acting as the directors of a very large and effective cor poration will re-employ some of their present public ser vants and discafge others to replace with new and more promising material. For the office of Corporation Com missioner they are confronted with an opportunity cf re taining a man in that office who has not only had the pe culiar training and experience to eminently qualify him for this difficult task, but who likewise during his past term manifestly proven his integrity and devotion to the interests of the taxpayers whom he has so abley and con scientiously served in the past. It is solely upon his en viable record of distinct accomplishments as Corporation Commissioner that Amos A. Betts is now conducting his campaign for re-election to that important office.

Crowning the efforts of several years' continuous work, study and con tent, Arizona has at last won the famous "Three-Cent Fare Case. This means that a reduction of 1.2c per mile has been obtained on all passenger rates throught the state. Statistics show that this reduction amounts to an actual saving of a million dollars a year to the people of Arizona and its accom plishment has only been made possible through the untiring effort and expert handling of this matter by Coiporation Commiisioner Amos A. Betts. This can only happen If- the voters of Arizona recognize the fact that only a man of Amos A. Setts' experience and familiarity with this subject can accomplish its fulfillment when the case Cmes up for oral .rgu ment next December orJanuary. The foregoing is one of the many vital traffic matters that are now pending before the Interstate Commerce Com mission which will require both expert ience and familiarity with the subject if they are to be won. lt the people of Arizona continue to profit by his ex perience, ability and zeal and re-elec-Amos A.
