Better Business Conditions In Most
Industries In Arizona Predicted
For Near Future By Phoenix C. C.
PHOENIX. May 9 (U.P.) A
decidedly optimistic view of busi
ness conditions in Arizona was
taken today by the Phoenix Cham
ber of Commerce.
The chamber reported in
creasing demands in the state’s
major industries—farming min
ing and livestock—and predict
ed the near future would pro
duce better business conditions
in most industries in the state.
Irrigation waters in dams has
reached record highs and range and
livestock records are in the best
condition in years, the report said.
Hie national defense program
demands have decreased unem
ployment and increased payrolls. A
corresponding increase in mining,
agricultural and industrial employ
ment has developed, the review in
The forthcoming $32,000,000 ex
pansion program at Port Huachuca
alone will provide work for thou
sands of men, the chamber said.
The state's major cities—Tuc
son, Yuma and Phoenix—all re
TFlogales 1f nternatioifs--;
son highway three miles north
of Nogales at 6:30 o’clock a
week ago last night.
In the forced landing, Dr. Per
! ner and companion. Attorney Rich
ard Gray of Los Angeles, escaped
'injury but the plane hit some soft
ground, turned over, and was dam
aged to such an extent it had to
be shipped back to Los Angeles.
Enroute here the plane stopped
at Gila Bend for gasoline and there
| the pilot was advised by two gov
ernment officers that the Nogales
: airport was seven miles due east of
: Nogales. This confused Perner.for
,he found after landing here that
! the airport is seven miles prac
: tically north of this city.
Perner and the Los Angeles at
torney flew to Nogales to see Rob-
I ert C. Golden who recently re
l turned here from California to look
! after his mines in Mexico. They
: left here the first of the week on a
trip to Mexico City.

In Phoenix, check transactions were
greater than a year ago and postal
receipts were up 16 per cent over
