Directors Os Arizona Wool Growers Launches Protest Against United States Grazing Bill PHOENlX—Opposition to the public domain feature of the Stan field grazing bill now pending be fore Congress was registered this week by Harry B. Embach, a dir ector of the Arizona Wool Growers association, in a letter directed to Senator Ralph H. Cameron. Em bach stated in his communication that he was expressing the gene ral opinion of sheepmen in Arizona. Embach informed Senator Came ron that the question of the con trol of the public domain, as far as grazing rights were concerned was an intricate problem, and rather in a large order to fill when asked for an opinion concerning it as requested by the senator. He said that federal control might rectify some of the evils attendant upon grazing on public domain, but preferred to allow matters to remain as at present. He stated that no bill drafted could success fully operate in all of the western states, as the conditions were diff erent in some of the states. As an example, he called attention to the desert ranges which were cf no ■value except in winter and then only in the event of rains. Reduc tion to certain ranges, he said, would mean the driving of same of the sheepmen out of business in ‘i# wjjg ‘ J&T BUY COAL NOW!

He declared that the provisions, of the bill were not flexible enough. The complexity of the problem indicated that it would be better let alone or left to the secretary of agriculture for sol utinn, Embach concluded. An objection to the Stanfield measure made by Embach was that it would create another governmen tal bureau. Section 215, which pro vides for a co-operative egency Embach stated, gave the board no powers, Section 209, regarding dis tribution of receipts, w r as a sop to the state legislature, he added, and complained that the stockmen were subjected to double taxation. He explained that 25 per cent of the grazing fees were returned to the state to be expended for the bene fit of the public schools and pub lic roads. Embach ended his letter by stat ing that he was in favor of some form of beneficiant control of the public domain but did not think the Stanfield bill would alleviate conditions.

To Offer 2 Years Hi School Work In Summer Sessions FLAGSTAFF—According to the summer school bulletin just issued the Northern Arizona Teachers Col lege will offer the last two years of high school work to summer school students. It is explained that a minimum of seven and one-half hours will be required for admittance to the high school department. All high school classes which are scheduled during the summer quarter will have enough work assigned in prepara tion for the recitation period to warrant the credit of one-half unit for each class. The credit receiv ed in such courses will enable the students to fit the courses taken here into the curriculum in the high school from which the stu dents expect -to graduate. Under the above arrangement, it is an nounced, no high school student will be admitted to carry more than trhee classes, or one and one half units of credit. The college does not offer instruction in the ninth and tenth grades. The first of the summer school will run from June 14 to July 16; the second half from July 19 to August 20. Students registering for either half, will receive one half credit for the work done based on the whole 10 weeks. Thus it is explained, a student who regist ers for a subject that carries can earn two quarter hours in that sub ject in either half of the summer school. It is believed that this arrange ment will be satisfactory to those who can only attend for five weeks and it will enable teachers to carry enough work to meet the state re quirements for the renewal of their certificates. Snecial arrangements are being made to offer work to students who do not wish to enter the Teachers College to prepare themselves for teaching, but who desire only that type of work which will meet the first or second year requirements of a college of university liberal arte course. The summer school bulletins are now being distributed by the college. NEW TT. S.
