BEAUTIFYING OUR COURTHOUSE GROUNDS
1Tlie question I will ask is this Can our supervisors do
anything towards beautifying the grounds about our
courthouse
0 x We must have those grounds put into shape a lawn a
r few trees and some one to look after them We will soon
see hundreds of tourists coming through here and the
first thing they will see when coming in or going out is
the court house standing at the foot of Main street with
barren unkept grounds
The editor of the Guardian would like for the supervis
ors to answer the question and if there can be something
done along these lines will be glad to be one to further
such a plan

REFLECTING THE PEOPLE
Congress and the state legislatures have to meet a greal
deal of criticism Many people speak contemptuously of
theprpsent congress and they have frequently referred
to previous assemblies of national lawmakers in similar
if terms They may be even more scornful of tjhe legisla
tive oocues m their various states
m3feNow whether or nnt sneli fmilt ic inQfitWl tlm
people get as good a government as they desire or as they
really want If they are so easily fooled that many weak
ana incompetent men get elected the fault comes back
to -the people for being so easily buncoed Or if people
aretsorfoolish that each individual considers onlv his
w soual interest and thinks not of the good of the country
as avnoie tney are uounci to De represented by one sided
men who are not capable of laying out broad plans for
public good
If people take no pains to vote at all primaries and
elections if they fail to inform themselves thoroughly
aljput the acts of their official representatives and the
reasons therefor so that they can vote intelligently how
canthey find fault if things go wrong
It is then up to the knockers to do less growling about
their representatives but to put in more thought study
kandt action No citizen has a right to complain unless he
votes- at every primary and every election and does his
utmost to discuss public problems with his neighbors and
get them interested
i fThe campaigns for tlie choice of members of congress
fcwillsoon start and people who demand better govern
ment should cease irresponsible growling arid try to do
something constructive in their home communities and
election districts

J tr DOING THINGS FOR THE COMMUNITY
People familiar with student life say that the test of
popularity and social success is the question whether a
fqlkY has accomplished something for his college The
dv4 wiiiau ui vuiuu uwuuunuu in uieir suiuies as
iiigiiiy as vnoy ougm 10 otin tneir ideal oi service to tne
institutionhas merit and applies to the wider world too
There is much competition among students as to who
sludl -gain coveted invitations to fraternities and occupy
positions of influence in their activities The fellow who
ficanj get on the athletic teams and do the most to win
Bjncs or who accomplish something in other fields of
student activity is the one who captures the prizes of
student recognition
m It is not a low ideal as people who are not interested in
sports might say Success in these athletic and other
student pursuits takes a lot of hard and grinding work
and toilsome effort self denial and incessant plugging
lThp boys value these qualities more than the facile popu
I Clarity of those who loaf around their rooms and enjoy
v- themselves in a lazier fashion
I While one might wish that these young men could place
a higher value on those that donothings in the way of
scholastic achievement still their idea is in the main a
good one It suggests to young fellows that they should
g dcCsQmethiHgmorc than loafing and should not lie wholly
JL -absorbed by personal ends but that they should work
carJlestIytor tho success of the institution to which thev
belong
fMore of ttljat spirit is needed in community life
AMERICANIZATION WORK
t
The chamber of commerce of the city of Rochester N
Y has set a line example of good work in Americaniza
tion It has an education committee that recently con
ducted a learn English drive There were 250 teams

The know your country committee held six meetings
H4duiing January among the foreign population attended
byj55jQ0 people Five big dinners are given annually for
newly naturalized citizens Business men mingle with
and welcome the new citizens and 1000 of the latter at
v c tended such dinners in 1921 To accomplish the Ameri
canization of our alien groups personalfriendship toward
these people must be shown and thev should f del that the
fif fcoldTosldents welcome them and desire to see them attain
success

Some people never collect the living the world owes
them The courts are too lenient

Why should a young man hesitate and stammer when
he pops the question Y The delay is often exasperating

It dont pay to let your temper get the best of you The
other fellow wins by holding his own in check

Why do people say that beauty is skin deep Much of

Arizona farmers now have an advan
tage over California shippers in fil
ing Arizona markets
A short time ago tho Arizona In
dustrial Congress was advised that
thero is a scarlcity of hay on the ICing
man market About tho samo time
they discovered that owing to tho
abandonment of the military post at
Fort Apache farmers in the vicinity
of St Johns and Holbrook had a
quantity of hay on hand which they
could not dispose of railroad rates
preventing their entering outside mar
kets In lino with its program of
using Arizona products in Arizona
the Indusstrial Congress took up the
rate matter with tho railroad with
the result that tho rate was adjusted
to give the homo producers access to
home markets
The hay rate from Holbrook to
Kingman is now 41 cents por hin
dred a reduction which it Is under
stood will amount to nearly per
ton Tho rate from Los Angeles to
Kingman is C4 cents per hundred
The new rates were announced by
