It was a “fine” day when Emery was born and ever since then every day except Sundays are “fine” days with him. In fact, everything is always fine, more or less, with him. If you meet him on the street and ask him how he is feeling, he will answer, “Fine, fine, fine—five dol lars fine.” Which leads up to telling you auto mobile drivers that it will be “fine” for you if you park too long on Mor ley or Grand avenues. They aren’t foolin’—they mean it. The law is a good one as it means much to the merchants in town to have a parking place on either street to allow their customers room and time to shop. Now if the merchants will just keep their own cars off the streets we’ll all have a chance. Personally, I’ve got the solution for a place to park. I park in front of the Concordia. Saves time, etc. So look out that you don’t get a ticket. Save that two bucks for the March of Dimes. Regards, MARTY. MANY HAPPY RETURNS John B. Murchison, Jr., January 17. Frank B.

IRogales 1f nternat to.TCu ed $24,000,000 in the country because of the need to replenish funds drain ed in fighting last summer’s epi demic which affected more than 25.000 persons in the country and which included 128 persons in Ari zona. Approximately $60,000 was spent this past year by Arizona chapters of the Foundation, Margaret M. En right, state representative, informed. This was spent to provide medical care for the new victims of polio as well as continuing care for old cases. There are 358 cases receiving care at the present time, she said. This expenditure drained many chapter treasuries and necessitated some of them making requests of National Headquarters for financial advances to carry on the program of care until treasuries are reimbursed by 1947 March of Dimes. “The Foundation’s program of care is completely unselfish in its distribution of funds,” Mr. Carson stated, “50% of all funds raised is sent to National Headquarters of the Foundation to be allocated to county chapters when needed for epidemic assistance. Research and education are made possible also through this 50% division. The remaining 50% is held in each county to provide direct aid for the patient.” The Santa Cruz County Fund- Raising Director is John Russell lo cated at P. O. Box 956, Nogales. Apaches Win One Game And Lose One (By BILL TITCOMB) The Nogales High School Apache hoopsters broke loose to give the townspeople a thrilling and interest ing pair of basketball games Friday and Saturday nights when they met two Tucson teams.

Pottery Imports In Hay, Straw, Banned Importation of Mexican pottery, glassware, curios, and other articles, packed in straw or hay is prohibited as a result of a U. S. Customs ruling which went into effect last weekend. The ruling followed agriculture department restrictions to prevent spread of the foot and mouth dis ease from Mexico. Mexican articles packed in mater ial other than straw or hay are still permitted entry. Rumors that the United States had put into effect a complete em bargo on all Mexican products are believed to have been caused by mis interpretation of the new restric tions.

William E. Hatcher Ends Life 12 Days After His Wife Committed Suicide Here On New Year’s Eve Twelve days after his wife, Ruth Hudson Hatcher, 52, who had been in iU health, shot herself to death on New Year’s Eve, WiUiam E. Hatcher, 54 - year -old assistant chief customs inspector at the port of Nogales, committed suicide Sunday afternoon by swallowing an ounce of Black Leaf 40 poison. Both suicides occurred at the Hatcher home, 226 Plum street. Immediately after learning her brother had taken the poison, Mr. Hatcher’s sister, Mrs. Adelaide Hatcher Scanland of El Monte, Calif., called Dr. J. S. Gonzalez and Hatcher was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital where the well known and very popular officer passed away an hour and a half later. Funeral services, conducted by the Masonic Lodge, were held Tuesday afternoon at the Masonic Temple, followed by burial next to the grave of Mrs. Hatcher in the Masonic cemetery. He was buried in his cus toms uniform. Pallbearers were Ross Dayton, Earl Hill, Dan Johnson, Warren Pippin, John Murchison and L. G. Paradis. Besides his sister, Hatcher is sur vived by the following nieces and Studying Needs Os Local School System (CONTRIBUTED) Members of the Nogales Branch of the American Association of Univer sity Women are devoting their at tention this month to studying the needs of the local school system which has for the most part become a better system during the last years. It is believed by A.A.U.W. that there are a number of criticisms to be made of our schools but the com munity is not without blame. Many of the school problems arise from lack of funds. There are a number of citizens who register horror at the thought of spending money on edu cation as a means to a greater Ari zona. You cannot improve your schools without paying for it. Another observation is: There is a great lack of interest shown by the majority of parents. How many parents visited school during Nation al Education Week open house? One teacher reported seven visitors, an other three; another reported one visitor. Others 'who reported had no visitors. We don’t believe that a community should criticise any in stitution without being willing to at least offer suggestions for improving said institution. Teachers for one reason or another have, in many cases, an apologetic attitude toward their profession. Perhaps it is because in many areas a third standard for the behavior of teachers exists. This is not true in Nogales in any great dregree. It is true, however, that an adjusted sal ary scale might change that unfor tunate attitude that we find among teachers. A number of innovations and re forms in our school system would greatly benefit the community as a whole. A list of those changes de sired by the members of the Nogales Branch of the American Association of University Women is being pre pared for presentation to the Nogales Board of Education, and we encour age the adoption of as many of the measures as possible. Any person or group interested is invited to contact members of the American Associa tion of University Women. ********* Driver Training Program At High School For the past three years the State Driver Training and Safety Educa tional Program has been offered to students in many of the high schools throughout the state and for the first time it will be offered to the students of Nogales High School starting the second semester.

The above announcement was made here Tuesday by Andrew L. Case, State Supervisor Driver Train ing and Safety Education of the Ari zona Highway Department. yTpTTTBsSiS9 Join the MARCH OF DIMES JANUARY V5-3Q.
