Casa Grande Dispatch (Newspaper) - April 24, 1936, Casa Grande, Arizona THE CASA GRANDE DISPATCH FRIDAY APRIL 24 1936 Casa Published Weekly By CASA GRANDE PUBUSHfNG 4 INVESTMENT COMPANY K H BOYD AL WILKE Editor and Manager News Editor OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER FOR FINAL OOONTY Entered at the Post Office at Casa Grande Arizona as second class matter September 6th 1924 Subscription One Year Subscription Six Months Advertising Rates DiBplay 40c per column Inch Gasified lOe per line Count five and onehalf words to Useand send with order BADLY STRAINED WED SAY On the front page of a newspaper this week w read an account of efforts to obtain mercy for Jack Sullivan doomed to die at the state prison May IP for slaying of a peace officer while resisting arrest In the column next to this story was another in which the central figure was a criminal to whom mercy had been twice extended We refer to John Fiorenza confessedly guiltj of tht brutal slaying of Mrs Nancy Titterton of New York Fiorenza has previously been convict ed three times of felonies For his first crime he was sent to a reformatory In the two subsequent case sentences were suspended He was under parole when he ravaged and killed Mrs Titterton in her bedroom The two stories are properly printed side by side for there is a close relation between them Nullifica tion of the law by undue clemency leads directly to further and more flagrant violations It is our firm conviction that is why America has such a black unparalleled in the whole world We foster criminals and encourage them It is to the shame of Judge John Wilson Ross of the Cochise county superior court before whom Sul livan was tried and of the jurors who tried him tha they have signed petitions now praying revocation 01 the justice they meted out Shakespeare hid not seen America when he pen ned that muchabused line The quality of mercy i not I NOT BRAINTRUSTERS When is a college professor a when is he not one We know now He is a brain truster when he is a Democrat and he is not one when he is a Republican At least that is what the powers that be in the Republican party tell us All college professors usec in the Democratic administration are braintrusters pure and nitwits who think thej know it all but muddle everything to which they pu their hands Professor 0 of Yale and others of the group of professors hired by the Republican national committee to cook up a dish for the voters in the coming campaign are not braintrusters ant should in no instance be confused with the kind of professor from Columbia Yale arid other institutions of learning engaged in service with the national ad ministration We know the above distinction is correct for Mr Fletcher who was the first to discover that Prof esson Moley Tugwell and associates were braintrusters has clearly stated that Saxon and fellow professon are not CONGRESSIONAL CONJECTURE We dont know what Nellie Bush state senator from Yuma county will finally decide to do about running for congress but if she wants our advice we say Dont do Why Simply because no woman has a chance at the job this year In our estimation it is simply a matter of psy chology How good or how bad a congressman Mis Greenway has made does not enter into the case Even though all admit she is a very effective repre sentative Arizona frontier state is hardly lilcely to go feminine enough to elect two women to congress in succession Senator Bush hasnt a chance Louis Whitney Phoenix attorney has been smart enough to take the inside of the track by beating the others to it with his announcement but for success he will have to advance more of a platform than the mere wish to go to Washington Harlow Akers got exactly nowhere on that one three years ago If C E Addams makes the grade it wont be be cause of popularity in Arizona but the reverse There may be enough voters who figure he will do less harm in Washington than in Phoenix to elect him The Japanese do not colonize

For some time Judge Stanford has been regarded as a very for midable contestant But some of his political connections have handicapped the exjurist Revela tion of the Frank Gegax letters in behalf of Henry Sullivans par don is credited with having dealt the Stanford candidacy a solaf plexus blow Although Mr Gegax wrote a letter to Charles Osborn Democratic cbmmitteeman at Hoi brook the Watchtower

Miller Phoenix attorney and former president of the Mari copa bar association was chosen to succeed Dr R Stroud of Tempe who Iwas not a candidate for reelection It is said Mr Mil lers selection is temporary Perhaps the most entertaining episode of the convention was the keynote speech of Temporary Chairman James P Boyle Tucson attorney Mr Boyle is one of the most eloquent of Arfconans He even stole the show from W J Donovan former federal attorney in district No 5 of New York state and one time Republican guber natorial nominee in New York who by Nation Sreighton The Republican state

ancient Papagoes went for water and where according to legend the Apaches preyed upon them stealing their women and their children LOS ANGELES April 24 is just beginning to market its anual crop of grassfat cattle As a result of generally good range and pasture conditions over the state Californias grass is ex pected to produce an abundant sup ply of good quality beef There can be no gainsaying the statement that California grassfat beef is a product of exceptional merit There are many consumers who prefer their beef well matured and carry ing the rich flavor that is peculiar to grassfinished beef Nor can there be any doubt but that natur al grasses provide the most eco nomical fattening ration On good pasture nature has provided a bal ance in proteins and carbohydrates and the need for the animal to get proper exercise in acquiring his meals But it must be recognized that this supply of good natural feed does not exist throughout the year And it must also be realized that in some localities essential mineral elements are not available thus the need for supplementing the range feed during the greater part of the year with concentrates and minerals I was very much interested in the statement made by a famous Texas cattle breeder and feeder who said I have fattened cattle in all sections of the United States Flint Hills of Mineral Point district in Wiscon Corn Belt and the South west Nowhere have I obtained as satisfactory or as economical gains on cattle as in California where I had the benefit of a combination of range feed and The practice of carrying cattle on the range and supplementing with concentrates is beyond doubt the answer to the California cow mans problems Such a system en ables the spreading out of the sup ply of beef throughout the year provides the most economical sys tem of producing quality beef and prevents the placing of a too bur densome supply of cattle on the market at one time with periods of scarcity at other times The

needed if there be any substantial progress in community history of the passing decades show quite positively that tbf results in community progress have been at tained in ratio to the efforts of the organization The greater the efV forts the more beneficial have beea the results The things that stand first in importance in the welfare of any locality are the same things that if they did not emanate from have been made the objectives of the chamber Let George do is a common expression Let the chamber do it has a more common application And the chamber generally does it for it has the support of those foresighted citizens who can visual ize the results of progress and the benefits of growth They can see possibilities and the necessity of being prepared to accept opportun ity when it comes by In these days of automatics human supervision is necessary if the best results are to be obtained The growth of a com munity needs supervision and it is through the chamber of commerce that the human element reaches out and guides and controls the automatic progress of the commun ity so that the results may be last ing and beneficial Mohave Min er Eyes That Cannot See We have heard
