ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS
Jane 26, 1933
la bright contrast to the usual
experience of the past three
years, the Department of Com
merce’a latest, ’’Survey of Cur
rent Business” makes encourag
ing reading. During May prac
ticaily ail important indicators
of production were appreciably
higher than in May 1982;improve
mint in basic lines, 6uch as
automobiles and textiles has
been strikingly substantial.
Prices, for both commodities and
securities, are advancing as re
suit of general business improve
ment, plus stimuli of inflation
and other procediDgs designed
to lift price levels. Employment
and pay-roll increases have like
wise been marked. Specific in
formation on particular phases
of business follows:
Commodity Prices—Most pro
nounced advance made in farm
prices, with change of 15 per
cent from March 11 to May 13.
Domestic Trade—Car loadings
show consistent * improvement.
Retail sales up. Commercial fail
urea on the down-grade. Ad
vertising lineage ha 9 increased,
partly due to seasonal trends.
Finance—Stock prices well up,
partly because of inflation pros
pects. Bond market ba9 been
irregular, but greatly improved.
Banking during May showed
steady reduction in member
bank borrowings from Federal
Reserve, and an easier credit
situation.
Construcfcion—Tbe first sign
that the construction industry is
sharing in general business re
vival appeared in May, when in
dicated building outlays ran 128
per cent above April. This is
first time in four years that re
sidential building was greater in
May than m. April. The indus
try confidently expects a heavy
and sustained building boom in
near future. It is officially
estimated that the country is
short 500,000 bome9. Heavy in
dustrial building is likewise
pending.
Automobiles —Trend has been
upward, with bulk of activity
centered in low price field. Ex
ports well ahead of last year.
Lumber—Production behind
consumption, and stocks being
disposed of. Little price improve
ment. Like the construction
industry, lumber looking for
ward to building revival.
Farm —Prices show steady
rise. Wheat has made good re
cord; corn has jumped 9till more
sharply. Farm employment
gains.
Steel—Since March there has
been rapid expansion in produc
tion schedules —far ahead of last
year. In price, scrap has shown
best advances, with moderate
Improvement in finished pro
ducts.
Textile—ln April, the industry
was 12 percent better than in
March, 31 percent over April,
1932. anc but 15 percent below
the 1923-25 average. Wool con
sumption and prices consequent
ly rising.
Foreign trade is still in a state
of coma. During April, both
imports and exports declined:
little if any improvement since
then. The foreign trade prob
lem will not necessarily improve
with general industrial recovery
—the imposing array of tariff
barriers, embargoes, etc., in the
tnwjur countries are the principal
difficulties.
These difficulties are among
reasons for the World Economic
Conference. So far the Confer
ence has not been a roaring sue
cess. As expected, war debts
made an early appearance, and
were greeted by cheers and cat
calls, depending on what flag
the delegation represented. The
European position is that no
discussion of world economics
can overlook the debts; Ameri
can position is that they should
be considered at another meet
ing, and that the present con
ference should confine itself to
matters programmed. Further
disruption will doubtless follow
actions of countries in meeting
current debt installments, and
the American response.

SALONS PAY TRIBUTE TO
CARMEL L. GIRAGI
J
The Arizona Legislature paid
a fitting tribute to Carmel Giragi
veteran Baby State publisher,
killed two months ago in an air
plane crash. In a bushed voice
it adopted a resolution introduc
ed by Representative Charles J,
MtQufllan of Winslow.
Although Giragi and McQuil
lan were of opposite political
faith abd often clashed in bitter
political figbts, they were warm
personal friends and MiQuillan’s
voice was strained with emotion
when he offered the resolution
which \jt ead:
-Whereas, the people of Ari
zona were profoundly shocked
by receipt of the news which
flashed around the State that the
life of Carmel L Giragi, of Win
slow, had, on April l7ih, 1933,
been snuffed out in an airplane
accident, a startling reminder
that "death rides on every pass
ing breeze,” and
Whereas, Carmel Giragi was a
native Arizonan of whom his
fellow citizens bad every reason
to be proud; an upstanding, out
standing member of society
whose brief life of thirty nine
years was filled with accomp
lishments, and gave rich pro
raise of greater achievements;
and
Whereas, as citizen, editor,
leader iu civic affairs, and mem
ber of the State Fair Commis
9ion, a position occupied during
the years 1931 and 1932, be won
the esteem of those with whom
he came in contact, and earned
the gratitude of ail who admire
and appreciate unselfish service;
now, therefore, be it
Resolved, that the House of
Representatives voice its com
mendation of the life of this
valuable citizen; extend its sym
pathy to the bereaved relatives,
and express its regreat at the
loss of one who might have said:
Oh! death will find me. long
before I tire *****;
and swing me suddenly into
the shade and loneliness and
mire of the last land!
S. P. MOVES TO MAKE DRASTIC
CUT IN FARES
Permission to reduce fares 45
per cent for ccaob and tourist
sleeper travel between all sta
tions on its Pacific Lines has
been requested by the Southern
Pacific Company in applications
to the Interstate Commerce Com
merce Commission and various
state commissions, it was an
nounced here today by P. E.
Baffert, local agent.
The proposed tariff would e9
tablish a basic one way rate of
two eents a mile for such trans
portation, as compared with the
present first-class rate of 3 6
cents a mile, and with approval
will be made effective today,July
1, according to Felix S. McGio
nis, vice president in charge of
system passenger traffic.
As now planned, it wa9 stated,
the low-fare program provides
for a 90 day experimental period,
at the end of which it will be
made permanent if patronage
warrants such action. The ter
ritory which would be benefited
by tbo lowering of the travel
costs includes six western states,
served by Southern Pacific’s
lines from San Francisco to Og
den and from Portland to El
Paso.
While drastic fare reductions,
with a view to regaining traffic
for rails, have been the subject
of recent joint railroad discus
sions, Southern Pacific is the
first western road to make a
move in this direction, it was
declared.
and received a rather biting note
in reply-the intimation was that
countries would be given debt
consideration on the basis of
their past record in paying,
which puts France at the end of
a long list. England paid in
part, as did Italy. Finland paid
full; it has a perfect record to
date. Its installment was,natur
ally, small; however, Finland’s
population is but 3,500,000 and it
has never been a rich nation,

BUSINESS CONDITIONS IN I2TH
FED. RESERVE DISTICT
San- Francisco, Calif., June 26.
Further expansion of Twelfth
District business was recorded
during May, although the in
crease was not so pronounced as
in April. Most adjusted mea
sures of production advanced to
levels approximately as high as
those prevailing a year earlier,
and additonal expansion was
evident in the distribution and
sale of commodities. Wholesale
prices of commodities important
in the district continued to move
upward during May and the first
half of June. Improvement in
employment conditions became
more widespread in May than in
April, although there were sea
sonal reductions in the number
employed in food processing in
dustries. Aggregate wage pay
menbs increased somewhat
furlber.
Cold weather throughout the
district and subnormal rainfall in
Arizona, California and Nevada
retarded the growth of crops aDd
of livestock forage during May.
Winter wheat, oats, bariey, and
tame bay were in less 9atisfac
tory conditiou than a year earlier
Although production estimates
for winter wheat were slightly
higher on June l.than on May 1,
it was expected that the crop
would be only half as large as
1932. Forecasts of the barley
crop, while indicating a smaller
crop than the large 1932 harvest,
approximate average production
during the past five years. It is
estimated that deciduous fruit
production will be about the
same in 1933 as in 1932. Lemon
and Valencia orange crop esti
mates show increases from the
preceeding year.
Production of crude oil averag
ed slightly higher in May than
in April. There was seme re
duction during the first half of
June, although an advance in
the proration schedule was an
nounced on June 1. Output of
lumber increased at more than
tbe seasonal rate and new orders
were larger than in any month
9ince the spring of 1931. Flour
milling and meat packing again
advanced. New awards for en
gineeiing construction were ex
ceptionally low during May, and
other classes of building did not
change appreciably from levels
immediately proceding months.
Neither was there much evi
dence of increased operations in
non-ferrous metals mining, al
though prices of those metals
advanced considerably.
Seasonally adjusted sales of
department stores, registrations
of new antomobiles, sales at
wholesale, and intercoastal ship
ments continued to expand dor
ing May and exceeded those of
May, 1932. Freight carloading
increased more than seasonally,
according to preliminary figures,
but remained slightly lower than
in the corresponding month of
1932.
Credit conditions in Twelfth
District were eased somewhat
during the live weeks ending
June 21 by further increases in
available banking reserves other
than Federal reserve credit, the
use of which declined. Local
disbursements of tbe United
States Treasurer exceeded Trea
sury collection* duriog most of
tbe period. There was some
outflow of commercial funds dur
ing late May but this movement
was reversed in June. Demand
for currency declined less rapid
ly than in March and April and
April, partly because of the ap
proaebing summer season when
additional currency is needed for
ordinary business transactions.
Loans of reporting member
bank 9 continued to decline dur
ing May and June, while invest
rnents increased. Deposits tiuct
uated considerably, but showed
little net change. The redis
count rate of the Federal Re
serve Bank of San Francisco
was reduced from «)’. to 3 per
per cent, effective .June 2.

recorded its willingness to recon

PLATFORM OF KIRBY L. VIDRINE
In announcing my candidacy
for the Democratic nomination
for Arizona’s Representative in
Congress in tbe primary election
to be held August 3, 1933, I feel
that a short resume of my life is
essential.
I was born and reared on a
cotton farm in Evangeline Par
ish, Villa Platte, Louisiana. My
education I received through tbe
public schools of that 9tate, in
cluding tbe Louisiana State Uni
versity. I taught three years in
tbe public schools of that state.
1 then bought a farm, and for
several years was actively inter
ested in tbe growing of cotton
and rice. I was tbe owner of
two Democratic newspapers —
the Evangeline Democrat,and tbe
Hale Center American. Tbe lat
ter paper I owned while living
in Plainview, Texas.
I came to Arizona in August,
1924, and ever since that time
have been a resident of Phoenix.
I was admitted to the practice of.
law in the courts of this state in
December, 1924. I am married
and have four children.
Space will not permit me to
elaborate on my platform at tbis
time, or emphasize those things
for which I stand, outside of my
unconditional endorsement of
the National Democratic plat
form. I have endorsed and will
abide by same in full.
Under tbe appropriations au
thorized by the National Indus
trial Recovery Act, Arizona
should receive approximately
twenty million dollars in the
next two years. If elected, I
will do all in my power to see
that the maximum amount to
which we are entitled, shall be
spent in this state in order to
bring about the desired improve
ments, relieve- unemployment,
restore bgtviQg power, and cre
ate an additional market for
Arizona products, and incident
ally, aid tbe other great indus
tries of this state.
I believe in the immediate re
instatement and adjustment of
compensation to veterans with
service connected disabilities.
I favor and will support a cop
per tariff, sufficiently high to
protect tbe copper industry,
which means a rehabilitation of
tbe mines on a paying basi9, re
employment of idle men and
tbeir families, and, with a pro
tected market, good wages are
bound to follow.
Having been born and reared
on a farm, and having actively
pursued the vocation of farm
ing, I feel that T am qualified to
say that this great industry is
now in a most chaotic condition,
that the farmers throughout the
country are barely making a liv
ing, and I know fully their
plight. If elected, I shall al
ways vote to benefit tbis great
industry.
Labor and industry should
work in unity. Industry cannot
advance without labor’s cooper
ation. Neither can ignore the
other. I have always been in
sympathy with labor and will
support any legislation alleviat
ing the condition of the laboring
man.
The Federal Income Law Law
should be strengthened so that
the great wealth and the great
corporations should not escape
their portion of the redistribu
tion of wealth.
The major nations of the world
with which we carry on an ex
port and import business use
silver as tbeir monetary medium
of exchange. Silver must have
a wider recognition in our mone
tary system. 1 pledge myself to
that end.
1 am expecting the nomination
to come to me through the votes
of the great mass of men and
women voters that really are the
backbone of any commonwealth,
and, if elected, L shall consider
that lam the representative of
all the people of the great state
of Arizona, at d not in Congress
to look after the welfare of the
favored few only.
