Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1956, Yuma, Arizona Sun Previews County Fair Opening Tomorrow THE NOTEBOOK What is a legislator You and I will have to about this a bit in the months tc come In November we vote on it Our lawmakers have new salary schedule They suggest a flat annual sal ary of 52200 a year Plus expenses For legislators living at home expenses would be a day for those who must live in a hotel or apartment 517 a day Expense money would stop after 75 days of a regular session anc after 20 days of a special session This figures put to a day for a regular session about 523 a day if a special session is added It would be difficult I think to overestimate the value to Yuma County of the work of our lators in this past session That they were able to secure tion for our water rights is an achievement for which we would gladly have paid much more So it is hard to speak in terms of dollars with regard to a maker's value Yet we must arrive at some ure something that will come near repaying a man for his rim spent in Phoenix something tha the state can something that will justify a good man's run ring for office and yet something that mil not be so juicy that ev ery no-good in thi state will come running after it NEt Printed Tuesday Afternoon YUMA VOL 92 ddfr Merot d t 100 Av Turn Art by th Co nd t tk t Turn Art til k 26 PAGES YUMA ARIZONA TUESDAY APRIL 17
