Members Ashburn and Noon aud Clerk. After lengthy discussion and consideration, it was moved by Member Ashburn, seconded by Member Noon, and unanimously carried, that the First National and Nogales National Banks re main county depositories, and that the Sonora Bank and Trust company he designated a county depository upon the following conditions: That one fifth (1 5) of the in active account be placed in the Sonora Bank and Trust com pany, two fiifths (2 5) each in the First National and Nogales National, and tbe active account to remain in the First National Bank. It was agreed with the county .treasurer that these ac counts remain in proportion as near as it could be done. That wheu aDy amount was with drawn from the inactive account to replentisb tbe active account, that the amount be withdrawn from each bank in a like amount, and when a deposit was made to the credit of the inactive ac count, the said deposit to be made in the same manner, a like amount to each respective bank. The chairman approved tha bond of the Sonera Bank and Trust company, and upon motion duly made, seconded and car ried, the treasurer's bond was increased in the amount of $50, 000.00, making a total bond of $575,000. 00 for the treasurer. This was made necessary by the large amount of money now in the banks for which the treasurer is custodian, the increased amount of bond to be reduced when the amount of funds warranted such reduction. The clerk was instructed to notify the treasurer in writing of tbe action of the board with reference to designation of coun ty depositories and the increas ing of her bond. There being no further busi ness, tbe board recessed until Saturday, March 12th, 1921, in the field. Approved, Jas. L. Pinley, Attest: Chairman. Lauka Parsons, Clerk. In the Field, Santa Cruz County Maich 12th, 19 The board met pursuant to re cess of Monday, March 7th, 1921, as per agreement, for the pur pose of surveying roads and other matters left unfinished at the meeting of March 7th. Present: Chairman Finley, Members Ashburn and Noon and Clerk. The board and the county en gineer, together with a represen tation of citizens of the San Rafael Valley, Patagonia, Har shaw and vicinity, and viewed and discussed the new survey of the road to the San Rafael Valley and also the old survey, known as the Glore Survey, and after due consideration and discussion, Member Noon moved to accept the Glore survey as being the cheapest and the one to serve the most people. This was seconded by Member Ashburn and carried. The board next viewed the proposed change back of the McFarland, Bergier and Young ranches, and after due discussion and consideration, the board rejected the engineer's survey, and decided that the old route would be best and cheapest and would avoid the paying of dam ages to the above mentioned ranchers. The next road was where the engineer's survey goes thru the land belonging to Mrs. Fortune, and after viewing same, and due discussion and consideration, it was decided that the engineer's Will the Next Dash Be Made in a (An Editorial Written by (Vilhjalmur Stefansson, the noted Arctic explorer, spent five long years In the Polar circle and three national geographical societies awarded him medals for his contributions to science. He discusses here a new phase of exploration.) mon. Admiral Peary told me once that he had never board of ice more than 140 feet thick. This la the maximum. The average Is much less, of course, even in the so-called "frozen north." The common impress'Ion Is that the northlands are frozen solid. As a matter of fact, they are covered with Ice floes of various sizes up to a maximum diameter of thirty or forty miles. There are already. sub marines which enn travel 20O miles continuously at a depth of 200 feet. Such a vessel, therefore, could go safely under an Ice float five times as (urge as the largest ever seen, and come up In the water on the other side of It. Already there has been Invented an lce-cuttlng device for use on sub marines. This device was to have been used on a Russian submarine prior to the war. It was capable of cutting through ice 10 feet thick, and remem ber, this was but the first Invention along this line. Free from danger? Well, hardly, but there is equal danger traveling on the water In navigation. In my Judgment submarine travel In the polar regions is less dangerous than navigation with ordinary ships. Clearly it Is l3s dangerous than the suggested piornnon. As to whether such an expedition will take place I cannot say. To anyone, however, who has made a careful study of the polar situation and also the sub marine, the plan seems possible of 'eallzatlon, at least. survey be accepted, and the damages asked for by Mrs. For tune, be considered at the next meeting of the board. The chairman reported ap proval on the following bonds and contracts. Contract of H. O. Bostwick, for the making of changes in county attorney's quarters, con tract and bond, Manufacturing Stationers Inc.. in the sum of $500.00, with the National Sure ty Company. The fol o ving demands were presented, approved, and order ed paid out of their various funds: Lucille Walker, county treas urer, expense incurred, re sale of road bonds, as per contract with purchases, $1,490.00. Lucille Walker, county treas urer, Calvelle road order, $4.50 There being no further busi ness, the board adjourned until Monday, April 4th, 1921, at 10:00 o'clock a. m. Approved, Jas. L. Fini.ey, Attest: Chairman. Laura Parsons, Clerk. ARIZONA WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL REVIEW. (April 18, 1921.) A record of operating indus tries isof vastly more value to a state than political operations which increase taxes and surely strangle industrial development. But the political activity usually gets the most publicity. Tucson Texas cattlemen buy ing local cattle for Texas ranges. Bisbee Local mining com panies announce present dev elopment work to be continued. Yuma Bids for sale of 15 re maining farms in Yuma auxiliary district open until December 31, 1921.

Florence Gila Valley Lumber to the North Pole Submarine? Vilhjalmur Stefansson) FRIEND of mine Jocularly remarked the other dny : "Well, I suppose you'll make your next trip to the Arctic in a submarine." My friend was joking of course, and 3-et, astounding ns it may seem, there Is a possibility that such a polar expedition will be made sometime. Tou will agree that sub marines travel under water. If so, the matter of the presence or absence of Ice Is a matter of no consequence ; at least that Is what you would infer. On second thought It will appear that the Ice Is really an advantage. If the water is IceJfree and the gale hap pens to be blowing, the boat would have to come up In heavy waves, but If there Is Ice in the vicinity, the waves will be small, no matter how heavy the gale. Already there are submarines which will stand a pressure of 600 feet of water. A 200-foot depth Is com m a r xm. oC TOP & Hardware Co., capitalized at $50,000 organized.
