N'o greater responsibility upon the American people than a thorough awakening of the individual to his or her personal responsibility as a citi zen. Every citizen must learn that when he speaks of the necessity for action by the government, he is talk ing of his own individual responsibili ty since he can honestly say. with the French king: “The Government, why, that is myself!” Every citizen must learn to feel that every call for a right or privilege on the part of any individual is predicated upon that in dividual’s responsibility and obliga tion to the country. Representatives of thrity-three states and fifty national organizations met in Washington in March, 1920, at the call of Franklin K. Lane. They agreed that the hope for a better and stronger Americanization of the peo ple of the United States could arise only trom better and stronger sense of the personal responsibility of each citizen for the lifting to a higher plane of the citizenship and the civic conditions in his own community; to bring this condition to pass would re quire a closer relationship among the individuals of the community. Arizona, in company with her sis ter states, hopes to be able to secure a more complete national unity and more effective constructive action through closer and more complete or ganization of the units of the various communities. As to the initial step towards securing these better condi tions that all want and hope for, three days have been set aside for encour agement of Community Organization, as follows: Saturday, June 12, Neighbor’s Day, Sunday, June 13. Community Sunday, Monday, June 14, Flag Day. NOW. THEREFORE, I, THOMAS E. CAMPBELL, Governor of Arizona, acting thorugh the authority vested in me by law, do hereby urge upon each community of the State, the arrange ment of fitting programs for the pro motion of neighborliness and the dis cussion of how best the organization of the community can most thoroughly insure for each member an equality of responsibility and representation ~ as well as that theoretical equality before the law which is the founda tion of our system of government. With this in view, I would call up on the heads of civic and commercial organization of each community to ap point the necessary committees for in auring effective programs as follows: NEIGHBOR’S DAY—Saturday, June 12th:—It is hoped that use can be made of the Sautrday half-holiday to arrange a meeting at which every man, woman and child of the commu nity will feel that he is represented. This can best be done, probably, thru a program of songs and addresses bearing upon the importance of each element of our population in the bet terment of local and national condi tions and the responsibility of each individual man, woman and child of the community for the accomplish ment of the best possible results. The slogan for NEIGHBORS’ DAY is: “Hellow. Neighbor!” COMMUNITY SUNDAY— Sunday, June 13th —All religious bodies, whe ther meeting on Saturday or Sunday, are asked to cooperate in using this day to center the country’s thought on the spirit of good will or “neigh borliness”, and to arouse men and wo men of all faiths to the spiritualizing effect on individuals arising from par ticipation in unified neighborly acti vity. I hope that every clergyman in the State will prepare a special ser mon for this day, emphasizing the need for a widespread manifestation of this spirit and for the creation of more definite channels for its expres sion. FLAG DAY —Monday, June 14th — This should be the climax of the three days for the betterment of Community Organization. I would urge a general display of flags, remembering that the Flag symbolizes unity and freedom which is the spirit of neighborliness and the spirit of the American system of government. It is especially urg ed that the evening of Flag Day be devoted to a Town Meeting of the kind familiar to every American com munity fifty years ago. These town meetings were held for the purpose of discussion and action. Each meet ing should be prepared to discuss: First, How the people of that commu nity can make themselves individual ly more actively useful to the govern ment of the municipality, state and nation: Second, Local community needs and how the neighborhood can best mobilize itself to meet them. The purpose of these Neighbors' Days is to start a movement of per manent, constructive value. We hope to have every good American greeting every other good American in his community with a friendly smile and “Hello’ Neighbor.” IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the tSate of Arizona to be affixed.

Secretary of State. o CAMPBELL RECEIVES BLACK HAND LETTER A “blackhand” letter was received by Governor Campbell on June 2nd from one who suggested that if the governor cared to rescue Charlie Chaplin he could do so by sending two hundred pounds sterling to 11 Handsworth street, Blackpool, Eng land. Blackpool is a suburb of Lon don. Officials of the governor’s office who admitted they had never heard M. Chaplin was in need of being ran somed. said the note had the appear ance of being written by a child who had been frequenting motion-picture showst o THE HOPE OF CAR OWNERS Nearly every year for more than a decade. Charles Steinmetz has been predicting the advent of the cheap electric automobile, which was to send the gasoline car to the scrap heap. Mr. Steinmetz has given the specifications of his “car of the fu ture.” It is to have a first cost of not more than SSOO, for the cheap makes, a speed of around twenty miles per hour, and the ability to go 200 miles without recharging. Such a car, he declares, would eliminate the gaso line car except for cross-country driving. Probably it would, but for years the world has awaited the test in vain. The cheap electric car does not come, and it never looks less likely to dom inate the field than now. Yet never did the prediction have a more wel come sound. With gasoline mounting in price, with a shortage threatened for the season and yet greater short age in seasons to come, the auto-own ing public is beginning to ask what it must do to be saved. Before electricity can displace the “gas” car, someone must develop the ".right” sort of storage battery, and that appears to be a most difficult task. Other suggested remedies are to use industrial alcohol and the heavier oils. Alcohol is practical from the me chanical standpoint, but even now, it costs more than gasoline. To use the heavier oils, the Diesel engine or some other of the same general nature must be adapted to automobiles, and that is a task only less difficult than the working out of the Steinmetz sort of storage battery. Steam cars can use any sort of oil or fuel, but the public has been trained to feel that steam as a motive power requires ex pert handling. So one passes from difficulty to dif ficulty till he comes back to the hope that greater development of the oil industry will provide more “gas.” Mexico appears to have greater re serves of oil than any other country; if the new regime in Mexico will es tablish order and help the develop ment of the oil fields, more millions of car owners will call it blessed. Northern South America. Morocco and parts of China are also named as places where oil development is look ed for; and of course, there are the oil shales of the Rocky mountains. Sooner or later, almost every day survey of the oil situation arrives at these oil shales. There is a quantity of oil estimated to be many times greater than all that the world has yet produced waiting to be wrung from the easily quarried rock. Sure ly. it ought not to wait much longer. —Chicago Journal. Additional Personal Mention Harry Sutherland made a flying bu siness trip to Phoenix this week. Doc.

All the big packing houses were closed, but buyers were in the competition. They bought yearlings and butcher cattle and calves steady, heavy steers slightly lower, hogs steady with Saturday, and sheep steady to strong. Today’s Receipts Receipts today were 11,000 cattle, 14,000 hogs and 8000 sheep, compared with 10,000 cattle. 14,000 hogs and 15,000 sheep a week ago, and 15,000 cattle, 15,900 hogs and 16,200 sheep a year ago. Beef Steers Killers bought yearling steers, mixed butcher cattle and cows and heifers at steady prices, in some cases buying strong prices for year- Heavy steers however con tinued in slow demand and prices were weak. Other markets had mo derate supplies but they were unable to report any improvement in the trade. Yearling steers sold at $11.40 to and heavy steers at $11.75 to $12.50. About forty cars of Colo rado steers were offered, and seven ty cars of grass fat steers were in the quarantine division. Good cows brought $8.50 to SIO.OO and were quot ed fully steady. Veal calves were steady at $9 to sl3. Stockers and Feeders Few country buyers were here ow ing to the general decoration holiday, and while receipts of thin cattle were small they sold slowly at weak prices. Fleshy feeders were neglect ed, and thin feeders suitable for grazing were in meager supply. Hogs Hog prices were steady at Satur day’s decline of 15 to 25 cents. Tho receipts were liberal packers bought freely and took the bulk of the hogs at $13.75 to $14.30, the top price was $14.40. Prices elsewhere were lower owing to liberal receipts. Shippers were out of the trade at most mar kets, Pigs and thin hogs suitable for stock and feeding purposes were low er, at sl2 to $12.76. Sheep and Lambs Trade in sheep and lambs was ac tive at firm prices. Killers were the principal buyers. Southwest spring lambs sold at $15.50 to $16.70, and some clipped lambs at $14.50. Ewes sold at $9 to $9.25. wethers $10.50 and thin feeding lambs at sll to $11.25. Moderate receipts are expected the rest of the week. Horses and Mules Though practically no trade was re ported in horses and mules today, a good many buyers and fairly liberal receipts are in sight for the rest of the week. Steady prices are indicat ed. o READ TflE DICTIONARY Have you read your dictionary late ly? An Arizona clergyman who had \ desisted from buying books during the war turned to his own book shelves and was astonished at the wealth of reading he found there. Among other books perused was the dictionary, and he has this to say of it: “The richness of my dictionary al most overwhelmed me. Really, a good dictionary is reading for lifetime. What surprises it holds! What hun dreds of words you don’t know; what hundreds you cannot spell! How you grow into the intimacies of speech! What relationship springs about you! When your dictionary begins to live, you almost feel language in the mak ing. I think for a few weeks of deli cate browsing I shall pasture on my dictionary alone.” For all its good humor, there is a valuable suggestion here. Too few persons are familiar with the diction ary. Many a vocabulary is limited to a few colorless words which might glow with forceful expression after a few days’ “browsing” in this fertile field. Even the onrushing torrent of slang, which has well nigh engulfed the country, and is steadily gaining in power abroad, might be stemmed, not to say damned, by a growing fa miliarity with that ancient a»d honor able authority on words. Good spell ing might become a usual thing, though this is of course an extremely optimistic thought. If one lacks the courage to begin upon the vastly treasure of the “Un abridged,” there are convenient little pocket dictionaries, rich in unguessed treasures, while for those already erudite and learned the encyclopedias offer unlimited adventures in ancient and modern words and quaint expres sions. 0 “The women with the wide expanse of arm and open-work sleeve work is generally vacillated in New York.” re marks the Columbus Courier. And the others, we take it. are vac cinated in various parts of the United State 8. Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Kaufman left Thursday in their Buick for a trip to Phoenix.
