Housing needs to be discussed A public meeting has been called at the town hall in Mi- ami at p.m. today (Thurs- day) to discuss 'housing' needs in this area. BECAUSE NEW-home con- struction, existing home im- provement and maintenance have NOT kept pace with Mi- ami and its surrounding areas expanding populations, critical demands of housing are now imposed upon this community and they must be met if de- sired labor market and profes- sional services demands are to be maintained. The area of substandard and inadequate housing in and around Miami has long been recognized and established. Today's home development meeting is intended to bring to- gether town government offi- cials, county government repre- sentatives, prospective home- owners who have been plan- nmg to build, building-contrac- tors and developers and their suppliers, street superintendent, public utilities representatives, surveyor engineers, financial in- stitution representatives, repre- sentatives from FHA and the news media Homesite development, fi- nancing, construction, and pub- lic service information will be imparted and exchanged. RESOURCE PERSONNEL ar- rangements to this meeting have been handled jointly by The Gila County Community Action Agency and Schwarz Lumber Company of Miami. a copy 18 Pages Vol. 92 2 Miami, Arizona Thursday, June 11, 1970 National Park Service official attends SWAG fact-finding meet Jack K. Pound of the National Park Service, Washington, D.C., met with the SAVE SWAC Com- Tuesday morning at the Globe Chamber of Commerce in a "fact-finding" session. FOLLOWING THE session, Pound, who is chief, division of program and policy evaluation, termed the discussion "pleasant- ly informal, very enlightening and certainly a strong indication of the great interest the area has in the Southwest Archeologi- cal Center and in keeping .it in Globe." Pound works out of NFS Director George B. Hartaog's Washington office. Thomas W. Mathews, chief, preservation laboratory and Al Hayes, project archeologist, both of SWAC, were also in attend- ance and took an active part in tile discussion. The presentation by the SAVE SWAC Committee went as fol- lows: Committee Coordinator W. G. (Bill) Stinson opened the meeting and all introductions were completed. Stinson called on Tom E. Anderson who read excerpts from various letters, including ones from US Senator Paul nin, US Rep. Morris K. Udall and National Park Service of- ficials winch indicated any or all of the following: (1) Gila Pueblo, the principal building at SWAC, it about to... crumble; (2) The water supply, especially in the summer, is inadequate and there is no feasible. heating and] eooUnf proMema exist; and (4} Various economies center to Khii UofA in Tueaoo. these statements 5 was then made by the following members of the SAVE SWAC Committee: _ Stinson read excerpts froir. a letter previously sent by local contractor Hany Hagen to US Rep. Sam Slteiger. The excerpts refuted a statement made by UdaM that "it would cost hun- dreds of thousimds of dollars to put Giat Puebfto Into condition to function as a modem build- ing." Hagen wrote: "The state- ment simply is not true, Sam, Gila Pueblo is being used, right now, as a fully functional build- ing floors and walls in most of the building are solid enough to last at least 100 years; even portions of the build-up roof covering rest on concrete ceil- ings, especially over the ex- tension storage bays; other roof covering, in a 1970 main- tenance condition, rests on heavily timbered ceilings Hagen then mentioned some im- provements which "woud help GHa Pueblo, but aren't essen- tial." The total of tbese improve- ments would run less than 000 and Eagen asked: "Do those costs sound like 'hundreds of thousands' of GLOBE CITY Manager Wil- liam ODeU reported what he has akn written to the NFS on occasion! that the so- lution to water problem at.

Ross Bittner reported that the City of Globe in a position to very easily extend fire protection to SWAC if it is desired. One qualifica- tion, Bittner explained, was that the city would come first in the case of simultaneous fires here and at SWAC. This, he consider- ed, highly unlikely. _ MIAMI CHAMBER of Com- merce President Charley Clark read a letter sent to Stieger and Hartzog on behalf of the board of directors of the Miami chamber. Strong support was expressed for retention of the center in Globe. Stinson read a letter just sent to Steiger by Hayden Town Manager Eugene King on behalf of the mayor and council of that community. One paragraph read: "We feel this center is ideally located, particularly com- pared to some congested site in the City of Tucson. We also feel that not all historical or scenic sites should be located in the larger cities. By having these located throughout the smaller towns tourists staying in the larger cities can Bake daily sight-seeing trips, vfeit- ing these places and thereby benefitting the smaller, out of the way towns." Anderson read a few quotes from one of the many articles on SWAC which have been oar- ried in the Arizona Record and Arizona Silver Belt and then presented Pound with a folder containing much of the informa- tion which had been presented at the meeting. Hayes said that his work and that of some of the other ar- cheologiats at the center, in the area of research, would be made easier by being located In con- junction with a university. On the other hand, he expressed a personal preference' for re- siding in smaller communities. an archeological animal bone specialist, is one of the best known authorities in his field and has people con- stantly coming to him for his advice and opinions. m A queation-and-answer ses- (Continued on Page Five) Cobre Valley Juniors plan Litter Warpath planned for 1970 United Fund goal A goal of for the 1971 United Fund of Miami- Globe campaign was approved by the group's board of direc- tors at a meeting last week.
