Arizona Silver Belt (Newspaper) - June 15, 1944, Miami, Arizona VOL 37 NEWS BE COXENS POST WAR PLANS GIVE HOPE TO STATE FUTURE Wm Bill Coxon candidate for nomination for Governor spoke last Friday night over a statewide radio hookup from Prescott on a subject with which he is thor oughly familiar Copper He was one of the pioneer ing group of hardy pathfind ers who helped campaign for a copper tariff In the be ginning there were only a few and Coxon was one of them At a time when the mines were either closed or closing for lack of price when thousands of men lost their jobsand their families became destitute this group of pioneers began to try to do about it The whole field was clut urn wuuwx SKNATOB WILLIAM COXON tered up with wrong infor mation and manufactured propaganda concerning the cause of the trouble The country was flooded with slave produced copper from foreign lands arid domestic con sumption was using this foreign copper The attitude of dual owners and the cartel groups who were behind this sinister manipulation was threaten ing to say the least They denied that foreign copper was responsible for the condition They disputed thestatistics and circulated fake propaganda all over the nation They and the papers published by them and their satellites were bold and brazen in their published statements most of which were false They tried to stop the Arizona boys who went out to make a defensive fight in the matter Many meetings that had been arranged for public discussion were stopped by them They didnt hesitate to swing the mailed fist tllliirn of fascist methods trying to stopthe people aroused to democartie action But our boys had a message for the people and it couldnt be suppressed with men like Hoval A SmithandBilly Coxon on the firing line These in1 er trepid soldiers spoke out in the open and told the truth They carried their message first to our people in Arizona They took it to Texas to New Mexico to Nevada to Utah to Montana to Michigan to Idaho in fact they covered m all parts of the copper producing territory in the United States As the truth began to be disseminated the audi ences grew until meetings which at first were only hund reds in attendance swelled above the thousand point The movement grew until it included not only the un employed but brought to it the leadership of many import ant leaders of all persuasions religious organizations labor organizations and even Chambers of Commerce which at first showed a spirit of opposition and even an tagonism This movement was unique in its inspirational power and carried with it the opening discussion The battle was fought along the lines of true democracy The enemy radio was challenged tooperi debate and when they appeared deai they Were unable to convince the public with their manu factured propaganda MIAMI ARIZONA THURSDAY JUNE ESTABLISHED IN 5c y ClRKRNT rKTURK OK CAMPAIGN STRATEGY ai stoue around lien1 MSHIIS lo that Mr KooHVelt eui

on bringing the message of truth to the members of Congress and when the votes were counted victory had been achieved They did not get all they asked but secured partial results enough to start re

to reprint his speech so that many who are not informed may readTc At great expense and labor Billy Coxon went on the firing line the front line at that and did his bit a big bit in defense of those who were in great need due to maladjustments brought on by organized manipulation The only compensation ever received by Billy was the satisfaction of having battled for his home people suc cessfully
