Las Cruces Daily News (Newspaper) - September 26, 1934, Las Cruces, New Mexico Now, apparently it is going to be a great year for coadidates in the coming elections because thto far only two have decided that they would not "go to the post" if se- lected by the coming conventions. Of course, we refer to the list of prospects we carried in The Dally on Monday. First, Kenneth S. Barahill, prin- cipal of Dona 'Ana school, made it known to us and asked us to make it known to the readers of The "News ttfat "his name was used without his consent." Which we did. And which was really the case. Mr. J. J. Aragon informs us 'that "under no consideration would he be a candidate, for county treasurer or any other office." When the story was" written for The -News we. doubted very, much if Mr. Aragon would consent to be a candidate for any political office. But, there .were some voters in this city who believed toe county needed such a man. -So we put in Jake's name. Not to make him a candidate but to let the voters have -something to think about Many a man has been induced to take an office and'turned out to bo "the pumpkins" as a public offi- cial. At that, we prefer to see the of- fice seek the than the man seek the office. Now, quite frequently we hear something about wlilcii W feel we must print. We Keard to day that Bernard Gluck had just "practically" sold out on Selby shoes the two days following tS< apperance of an advertisement o same in The Daily News. That made us feel bad. We had counted on anothe a'd on those, shoes this week. Bu Bernard's have dresses, coats, 'Wei what do you need? We'll rib up something to advertise. Then there's Frank E. Sellsr who likes The Daily 'News better than, either the El Paso papers because "1 can set down for an hour and read everything I want to know without handling a bale of paper.' And if you doubt that Frank said it just ask bin..

ELEPHANT BDTTEL CCC CAMP USING SKILLED LABOR 12 Carpenters Will Be Emplpyed on Con- struction 430F60GRADS NOW HOLD JOBS A bit of evidence to show that college graduates can do something beside join the ranks of the unem- ployed, appears in a statement just issued by the Registrar at New Mexico State College. Of the 60 men and women who were granted degrees at State Col- lege last May, 43 are now remun- eratively employed. Four, others have chosen to continue their edu- cation at other schools, wlilie two of the graduates are managing their own homes. In other words, only 11 af the 60 graduates in the class of 1934 have been unable to find Jobs at a time when work of all kinds is de- cidedly scarce. The graduates are holding a wide variety of positions. Four are employed by the federal government. engaged In -business or secretarial work. Twenty-two are. teaching, and six are employed in engineering posi- tions. The miscellaneous occupa- tions include management of a fill- ing station and service with the U. S. Air Corpa at Kelly Field. Further cuts in the ranks of the. unemployed were made with the addition of 12 carpenters to the CCC camp construction now under- way at Elephant Butte dam. These men, all skilled laborers, were sent out by the National Ke- empldyment office, and will be em- ployed for a period of 30 days or longer, according to Ray Veltch, local manager. Although a number of other calls have been made from laborers skilled in various tines, the posi- tions cannot be filled-unty further Information relative "to "the' work is received from the chief construe tion engineer at the camp. Within a short time it Is expec- ted that work will get underway on the Las Cruces-Alamogordo highway, which will employ around 80 to 90 men, and perhaps more, at peak construction periods. Various local relief heads told the Daily News today that there was i noticeable improvement la employment conditions over the same period for last year, and that additional pick-up could be expec- ted within the netx few months. The carpenters sent to the COG camp are; R. F. Apodaca, YsaboJ Grnillo, Marcos Salnz, Jose Chi- con, Cleopos Ramirez, Francisco Portello, Juan Garaboa, Preston Reed, Alfred Reed, Alfred Durlez, R. S. Alexander, Martin Herrera and E. T. Gresham. REPUBLICANS ARE SLOW TO NAME WHOLE TICKET Santa Fe, Sept. 25 -With speech making taking up the major por- tion of the Republican conven- tion here, nominations were being made slowly. The nominations which werb made 'seemed to meet generally with the. approval of a great ma- jority of the candidates. The nominations: Senate, long term, Branson Cut- ting. Senate, short C. Dillon. House of rice Mierra. Miller. Judge of the Supreme Court- John -C. Watson. Ex-Governor Dillon, placed the name1 of Senator Cutting tp' nomination, aaytnif that "I ap- pointed him 'to'the li. S. Senate I' the first place and I have never my action. Even at that Senator Cutting aim I have had some great battles, and I still am of the opinion that it would be a great mistake not to return htm to Washington." The Republicans favored an ex- tremely liberal policy in creation of Its platmorm. They also advo- cated an equitaMe distribution of the state's mone'y for schools; ad- vocated a fair treatment of war vererans; favored control of cre- dit through the government own- ership of the federal reserve.

BARB Of all the things that are out- they are in the life of Rev. D. C. Barb, old time retired Baptist minister who passed away early yesterday morn- ing, the one that stands out above all others was his sublime faith In himself. Even though he neevr had the advantage of a theological educa- tion, and not even of an ordinary grammar school education, this did not deter him from his determi- nation to succeed. Many a time, it is told, he sat up until midnight studying the little 10 cent Bible that had been a present from Mrs. Barb, while in the daytime he mauled rails to support the family. And in days there was no electricity; hU only light came from brush thrown in the fireplace before which he used to lay. His first revival meeting, held under trying conditions, preached In an oak grove a mile from his home. About 40 were converted. Yet he received not one penny. "They didn't even brag on was the way he used to tell it to his close friends. This might have been discour- aging to. a modern Minister of the Gospel. But not to Rev. Barb who had faith in himself. During hie lifetime he converted more than persons and baptised more than preaching in Missouri, Texas, Florida and New Mexico, an enviable record indeed. Hardships wern jiiirt an every day occurence to the Barbs. He often preached in store buildings, mlllsheds, log school houses, pri- vate homes, groves, brush arboif and poorly constructed church (Continued on page four)
