Santa Cruz County’s Non-Farm Home Owners To Spend An Estimated $265,000 On Repairs In ’47 NEW YORK, April 10—Santa Cruz County’s non-farm home own ers will spend an estimated $265,000 on repair and modernization work during 1947. 1 At least a third and probably more than half of all dwellings in ; the county will be improved or re- ■ paired this year, according to esti- : mates released by the Tile Council of America. “Increased supplies of , building materials and easing of restrictions should make possible a LOCAL dtii RODEOS®V As Seen And Heard By RED MYRICK Spring is here for sure, after a •very mild winter. We hardly notice any changes down here on the bor der but it is really here. You can see the cowboys shaking the kinks out of their old twine and talking’ about the next rodeo. i&nd what a show they have com ing up at Phoenix today, Saturday and Sunday! If Rich Hale has im- ' proved as much in the past few ( days as he did the first eleven days after Doctor Gonzalez operated on him, die will be a sure winner. This cowboy is one of the few who could have an appendix operation, win a roping before the incision had be gun to’heal, and pay the doctor with a Douglas Rodeo check before the medico had time to mail him a bill. Speaking of sprang, the Sonoita Horse Show is coming up this month and from what I hear and see, this one will be the biggest one ever. The entries are pouring in from all over the Some of the jinest quarter-bred horses in the •world will ibe shown right here in fcanta Cruz County the 27th of this month at Sonoita. Don’t miss this opportunity to see some of the finest quarter horses ever to put a foot in a show ring. Another good sign of spring: Wirt Bowman has started remodeling a house on Bankard street that he plans to be his summer home. Mr. Bowman won the Grand Cham pionship last year at Sonoita with his stallion Buddy, and I am sure this horse will be back to defend his title. I visited with Mike and Helen Knagge out on the river and they axe busy getting their horses ready foi the Sonoita show. Olen Sims who has won a lot of ribbons including the Grand Cham pionship at Tucson, is entered. I heard that Rancho Grande has a dude horse entry, along with sev eral more from other dude ranches. Just received a card from Otho Kinsley. He is having a rodeo the 20th of this month. Chet Rader was in shaking all of us folks down again but this time, folks. Chet has a new worry—the horse show program is not large enough to take care of all those who want an ad in the Sonoita show booklet. Nogales is warming up: Toma teros buying race horses, ranchers ar.d town folks playing polo, drug store cowboys and real ones roping calves; tne owner of the airport and many others have bought fine horses just to enjoy a little outdoor We lt would be nice if we had a grandstand and park in Nogales so the rest of the people could join in on these fine sports: polo, rodeo, roping, horse show, baseball, soft ball and many others. —RED.

Rosemary Munguia, four on April 30. record volume of home moderniza tion throughout the country.” said F. B. Ortman, chairman of the Council’s Residential Construction Committee. The county’s 2,004 single-family homes will account for most expend itures, the study revealed. Painting is the most often wanted improve ment, with about a third of all own ers planning to redecorate home ex teriors or some room of the interior. About 13 per cent of all dwellings need new roofs or roofing repairs, and large numbers will have water pipes repaired, bathrooms tiled or showers installed during the year, according to the report. As evidence of the increase in building supplies, Ortman pointed out that floor and wall tile volume is expected to hit an all-time high this year. "Stepped-up production of materials means that the con struction industry can both build record numbers of houses and do the repair work neglected during- the war,” he said. Home repair expenditures in the ccunty are part of a $13,215,000 modernization program being un dertaken in Arizona this year, ac cording to the study.

I replied, ‘Leave it there where it is.’ He didn’t say why he didn’t want it to be seen. “I saw him last about 6:30 or 7 Tuesday morning as he went down the road toward the Gerrard store.
