At present there is a total of 285 unoccupied buildings at Camp Little j and about 90 of the number are | residences, some of which are very! desirable. To rent those houses j would mean many vacant houses ' in the city of Nogales proper, result- j ing 1n numerous property owners losing and revenue 'with j which to pay taxes and paving as- j segments, it was brought out at the meeting Monday.

Burns said at the meeting that he was not in favor of renting any of the houses for at least six months, on account of the chance of Nogales getting more troops. E. K. Cum mng said he doesn’t think the city should under any circumstances rent the houses. . “It would ruin the town if those houses were rneted”, he said. Mayor Harry J. Karns also opposed the renting of the houses. C. D. Rankin said he was against renting the places for at least 60 days. Alderman O. A. Smith declared “if there is a chance of getting a permanent camp we ought to wait two years”. Alderman C. C. Cren shaw said a large sanitarium “would be better than a camp”. Alderman Louis Escalada said that the Greek organization looking for a site for a sanitarium has a quarter of a million dollars to spend. It was brought out at the meet ing that if Nogales gets a perman ent army post it would undoubted ly be erected on the site of the old aviation field, and that the build ings at Camp Little will eventually become taxable property. Pending disposition of the camp buildings, the city will assist in police duty to keep down destruction of the property. Already, it was stated at the meeting, windows and doors from several structures, have been carried away. dimming and Hannah, who “in herited” the Ali Baba Theater, plan to tear down the structure, because, they maintain, it is a firetrap. It is probable that Bert Schleim er, who now owns the big swimming pool on the northwest end of the camp, will open it up to the public j when the warm days roll round this summer. BIG GOLD STRIKE SOUTH OF HERE The most important gold strike * in recent years has just been made about 100 miles south of Nogales in the state of Sonera. Arthur D. Page, local cattle in- j specter, brought to the ofii.ee of the Kc tales International yesttrriay some of the samples taken from the property while he was present and they are wonderfully rich in the yellow tmetal, showing very coarse and literally sticking all through the rock. Mr. Page, who is in terested in the property with Sam Moore, says that it is far ahead of anything he has ever seen and as there is already considerable work done, shows that it is going down and getting better every shot and if it continues as it has every ap pearance of doing, it will be the sensation of this part of the coun try. Speaking of gold, yesterday was the 85th anniversary of the Califor nia gold strike.

The following statement of policies was adopted and issued today on behalf of the National Federation of Federal Employees by the Er ecutive of that organization: The National Federation of Fed eral Employees will oppose in the' future as It has in the past, and with every legitimate resource at its command, the unprecedently bit ter and vicious efforts of selfish special interests to disrupt the ul timately destroy the Federal service structure. The National Federation of Fed eral Employees will continue with out abatement to work for the pre servation of the essential services rendered to the whole people by the Federal Government through train ed Federal employees who are de voting themselves loyally and faith fully to the fulfillment of tasks vital to the welfare of every citizen. The Executive Council of the National Federation of Federal Em ployees is firm in its conviction that the campaign undertaken by spe cial interests to break down the Federal service structure is a men ace to the best interests of the greatest number In the Nation. The Executivt Counsil feels strongly that its genesis in the special in terests who believe they stand to profit largely by the achievement of such a break-down should be gen erally understood and recogniztd. The National Federation of Fed eral Employees is unalterably op BOGUS CURRENCY CIRCULATED HERE Yesterday morning Nick Kerson of the Cavern Case, in Nogales, Sonora, became suspicious of 23 twenty dollar bills presented at the Cavern Monday evening. Kerson brought the bills to the American side of the line and they were declared counterfeit. The bills were passed by two men, identity unkown, who were in the Cavern until about 10 o’clock Mon day evening. The “money” is con sidered by local authorities to be a very good sample of counterfeit. Kerson did not become suspicious I until he noticed the bills were ap | parently a shade lighter than bona [ fide currency. NOGALES, ARIZ., WEDNESDAY, JAN. 25, 1933 posed to further inroads upon the already depleted pay envelopes of government workers. Prior to the enactment of the so called economy act, outstanding un biased personnel authorities were | agreed that the Federal scale was entirely too low. The economy act reduced that already low scale by a minimum of 8 1-3 per cent. The first pay cut was not dictated by sound economics, generally or spe cifically, nor by any consideration of good personnel practice. Recom mendations for still further cuts r„rc absolutely indefensible on any score. The National Federation of Federal Employees will oppose them with, all the vigor at its command, j RETURNS TO NOGALES j Dr. Millie A. Wilston has returned to Nogales after a sojourn on the coast.

Ariz., Jan. 24. —‘“Itin-j erant merchant-truckers can wreck any perishable commodity market by dumping at any given time more j than the market Can consume”, said 1 Paul E. Baxter, of Phoenix, mana ger of the Farmers Produce Com- j pany and of the Central Wholesale | Terminal Market, and chairman of the executive committee of the Arizona Producers Protective Assg- | ciation. “Besides wrecking our local com modity markets for the truck and ' fruit growers of Arizona, they also | damage markets tor our nome-grown | products outside of Arizona. A trite ; expression is that two birds may be killed with one stone. Now let me show you how these itinerant mer chant-truckers killed four big birds with one stone. “After the freeze in the spring of 1932, when a considerable quantity of our local crop of oranges and grapefruit was frozen, these itiner ant merchant-truckers brought in large quantities of egges from Tex- : \ J| and Mrs. Hoover leaving sfySlliblil church after the services for Calvin Coolidge.

They tore down the work of stand ardization that we have built up with much expense over a long per iod.” z- “ FIVE CElsiT^ $380,000 OF RECONSTRUCTION F. C. FUNDS ADMINISTERED IN ARIZONA IN 3 MONTH PERIOD Total Os 55,723 Persons Given Relief In Arizona From R. F. C. Funds During Months Os October, November und December From the first of October to De cember 31, 1932—a period o$ three months—the office of Former Gov- j ernor George W. P. Hunt adminis tertd approximately $380,000 of Rt construction Finance Corporation relief funds in Aripona. The above information is con tained in a letter dated January 20 sent to United States Senator Robert M. La Follette, Jr., by J. W. Strode, who was secretary to Gov. Hunt. Strode’s letter, of much interest to the entire state, reads of follows: "Phoenix, Arizona January 20, 1933 “Senator Robert M. La Fcilette, Jr. Senate Office Building Washington, D. C. “Dear Senator La Follette: “I am in receipt of your telegram of January 12th inviting me to ap pear before the Senate Subcommit tee of Manufactures January 24th at the hearings on the Cutting Bill for federal aid to meet the problem of transient unemployed. Your tele gram suggested that I might be able to discuss the transient problem in Arizona. <‘J regret that I am not able at this time to come to Washington to give the Sumcommittee the benefit of such information as I may have on this important subject. I would be very glad to do so, were it pos- > sible. I am taking the liberty to give you a few of my ideas for what they may be worth. “As secretary to former Governor George W. P. Hunt of Arizona, I had considerable experience in ad ministering the Governor’s unem ployment relief fund and the Re construction Finance Corporation relief funds in our state. Under the Governor’s unemployment relief movement, the funds were raised by 'donations of one day’s p&y per month from state employees within the jurisdiction of the executive of fice. The Governor raised and dis tributed over $60,000.00 in this way for the relief of unemployed citi zens of our state. The benefits of this fund were limited to citizens of Arizona. , “From the first of October to December 31, 1932, the Governor’s office administered approximately $380,000.00 of R. F. C. relief funds in Arizona. This money was appor tioned among the 14 counties of [ the state and was supervised by a 1 state committee of five. iCwas sec- I reary and the active administrative. | agent. “Under the requirements of the j j R. F. C., each county was obliged to pay some attention to transient re lief from their respective appor tionments ol me R. F. C. relief funds. In a few cities where the transient problem is particularly serious, additional allotments were made from R. F. C. funds for funds were suppltmcntary to local relief funds, such as Community Chest monies, etc: “This assistance, because cf the inadequacy of the funds, has been limited to furnishing transients with one or two meals. ,and in some cases, a night’s lodging and facilities for bathing, laundering, j shaving and hair cutting. “A fair average of the number of transients fed one or two meals at these several local points in Arizona, is probably 250 per day. “Except in those cities where this money has been specially approp- 1 riated for transient relief, it is the tendency of the local relief admin istrations to conserve their funds ior the aid of permanent residents and to give the minimum of assis tance to transients. The relief funds available are inadequate to meet the local needs and it is to be ex pected that, where this is the case, there will be discrimination against the transients. It is a prevalent at titude of mind; that the first duty j of the local relief committee is to J care for the permanent resident and that the transient problem is !, for tht federal governmentto handle. A “Any satisfactory solution, of tfrq j' transient situation, therefore, wouldj seerp ip involve a federal appropria tion specifically for that purpose limited to such use. A uJven where special propria- j tions of R. F. ■ C. funds have been’ made* to communities to aid« in feeding the :4*>f.,ents, the li l ' itCc' amj vaila,. permit of • oth-) NOGALES IS THE GATEWAY TO THE GREAT WEST COAST OF MEXICO ing which approaches a permanent, or even semi-permanent solution. The transient is given one or two 1 meals and is advised that he can expect no more. For the next meal, he must move on to another ‘‘soup i kitchen” in another city or else 1 rpsort to “pan-(handling” in ft he communities. This occurs to a very large degree in the city of Phoenix where I live. One can scarcely walk a block without being solicited by transients for money with which to buy food. When they are advised to go to the Vounteers of America, which operates the “soup kitchen’ in this city, the usual reply is that , the supplicant has already received two meals from the Volunteers of ! America and cannot obtain any more. This is no criticism of the administration of the “soup kitchen” by the Volunteers of America here. They have a model place of its kind. With the limited funds avail able they cannot undertake the per manent feeding and lodging of transients who flow in at an aver age of 250 per day.
