The New State of Arizona
According to Governor Sloan the
new state of Arizona comes Into the
union with a population of 225,000.
against 204,354 in 1910. The Increase
in Lhe year was largely in the farming
sections, perhaps the best kind of in
crease .
As to the coming statehood, the Gov
ernor says: "The privileges of state
hood are such as to warrant the ex
pectation, that if the affairs f our
new state si. all be conducted econom
ically and with reasonable prudence,
our poulation will rapidly increase
and be followed by a development ot
our resources to a degree which w-3
could not reasonably expect should we
remain a territory."
Arizona approaches statehood with
the knowledge that it has an excellent
school system, maintaining a high
standard for teachers and affording
advantages to our children equal to
those found in older states.
The public school statistics are:
Children of school age (6 to 21) 39,611
Enrolled in the public schools 31,686
Enrolled in high schools 1,343
Attending private schools alone 2,104
Average daily attendance, pub
lic and high 21,776
Male teachers 14u
Female Teachers 736

Manigal is going to Indianapolis in a

not been determined, but he will be in
Indianapolis by December 22.

the grand jury everything I know. I

No Red Cross Seals
On Parcel's Face
Buy Red Cross seals and put them
on the BACK of your Christmas par
cels, put them on the back of your let
ters, use them for wrinkle plasters;
to cure your crow's feet; perforate
them and stick them or place them
on your back instead of the "old reli
able'" porous plaster, paint them black
and use them for beauty plasters, do
anything with them that suggests it
self to your mind, but DO NOT put
them on the front or address side of
your letters or packages, because your
