This plan of seling has brought wide protests from mer chants and civic organizations throughout the southwest, the Phoenix campaign having been in augurated by the Arizona Republi can and a number of local business associations. Letters from Representative Hay den and Senators Ashurst and Mer chants’ and Manufacturers’ asso ciation of Phoenix declare that the Waton bill, now pending in con gress, is receiving widespread sup port. Associations throughout the east have also taken up the campaign in favor of this bill and many eastern congressmen have expressed their intention of voting for it. All three Arizona congressmen declared they favored the bill and woul 1 w ork to seinre its early pasage. The Arizona delegation also en dorsed resolutions passed by the Merchants and Manufacturers here. The Watson bill would make it unlawful for anyone to send parcels through the mail which were de signed to be sold to the receiver and which had never been solicited. T t would give podal employes the authority to refuse such parcels at the time they were mailed, and also give postmasters authority to demand proof that goods shipped 1 ad been order? 1 by the person ad dressed. While it is general I v c.ncecied that persons receiving such parcels are not obligated to either pay <or them or return them, the Wat son bill would absolve the postal service from all necessity to aid the shippers in either recovering their unsolicited merchandise or pay ment for it. Merchants throughout tho coun try have been active in campaigns against this merchandising because it has become a real menace to re tailers, a heavy burden of the post office department and a nuisance to the people of every community. • o No Lynchings During Hunt’s Reign He Says DOUGLAS—One of the marks he points to with pride is that during his administration there have been no lynchings in Arizona, Governor George W.

One-Profit savings enable Studebaker to reduce the price of the Standard Six Sedan for the third time in 14 months THREE times since January 1. 1925, One-Profit savings have been passed on to purchasers of Studebaker cars in price reductions —although refinements and im provements have been added which make the present Studebakers the finest ever built. They are possible at the price be cause Studebaker is the only man ufacturer in the world equipped to build quality cars on a One-Profit basis. Studebaker’s Unique Facilities Few motor car “manufacturers’* have foundries, forges, etc., to make their own engines—yet one fifth of an automobile’s cost is in the engine. Even fewer build their own bodies—yet one-third of a car’s cost is in the body. Studebaker builds all its own bodies, all engines, all clutches, gear sets, springs, differentials, steering gears, brakes, axles, gray iron castings and drop forgings. Only Ford in the low-price field and the Studebaker in the fine-car field have such complete manu facturing facilities. One-Profit Value These facilities enable Studebaker to manufacture quality cars on a One-Profit basis —eliminating out side profits. The savings thus ef fected are passed on to Studebak er owners in the form of higher quality and lower price.
