And head be right better news from Home a those a men wanted signs have been coming out with increasing frequency in California during recent weeks. That a one kind of sign whose Finger Points directly to improving conditions. The last week of april like the week preceding found private Industry putting 50 per cent More workers onto the payroll than a year ago during Tim same period. Every week in april moreover showed a gain in the number of workers getting jobs Over last years record. Not a landslide not an end to Relief Rolls but a healthy encouraging sign that very few states Are equating. With Home building in California keeping up its remarkable Pace and automobile purchases showing a com it a Rati vol y Good record Alifornia continues to hold fast to its place As one of the Industrial White spots of the nation. Done to Rob your City its not Only the quilts meet the Queen tourist trek that gathering momentum at this season. There a also the influx of itinerant paddlers keeping their summertime Date with California. With feet firmly Plant d against the door Jamb these Perambo plating vendors will be unloading their wares at a super bargain rates to the accompaniment of a Swift line of chatter to be numb the unwary listener. But the a super bargain rates usually turn out to be higher than the Cost of similar articles of better Quality a1 any of the local stores be they Chain or Independent. That however is Only one of the evils of purchasing from Fly by night vendors. Why support Quot Gypsy traders who pay no taxes to the local Community pay rent for no stores pay neither Light heat nor water Bills give no employment to local workers contribute not fling to local Charity or to Community activities As do the merchants and the Quot network store managers of Tho local business establishments ? they carry the bulk of Hie tax Load and they or Duce the jobs and payrolls that make the Community a going concern. The wandering Vendor produces none of these. Is tin itinerant peddle so important that he deserves this much attention government reports say a a yes in cities where Tim peddle nuisance is not stopped say the e reports approximately Sii per capita is taken out by these1 transient Sellers and solicitors multiply that by Hie City pop lotion and you have an appalling a by n loss for the City.

In View of the Many rumours now circulating about our City and some recent activities there is every reason to believe that a very questionable situation confronts us. Can it be possible that the gambling element who because of the insistent raids in los Angeles and likewise because of the clo get association to the race a rack Are trying to buy their Way into c Netrol of Arcadia City politics and make of Arcadia a gamblers Haven it certainly looks a Well As sounds very much like All of this and More too is True. It i a singular situation when cur it to officials will spend so much of the tax payers Money and time fighting each other for the purpose of controlling a Sio a month political Job Aud apparently with the View of discharging appointive employees without Warra table cause or any kind of a Good reason. No appointive employee of any kind should be removed without definite and specific charges being made and a hearing granted in Public. Nothing apparently except fighting for control of our City government. Has been the order of the Day now for some years past in the meantime our merchants. As Well As All of our Resi dts. Have been unduly handicapped and financially penalized by an intolerable Telephone situation that should no have been permitted to exist and these Telephone companies could and should be forced to consolidate facilities without reference to ownership into a one unit service without toll charges within the City limits of Arcadia and according to Law thus could and should be brought about without further delay. We Are being heavily charged by the electric Light and Power monopoly with its attendant results of too much for Light rates plus too High a City tax rate. In Tii these tilings Are corrected there will be no new City Hall building in Arcadia despite the rumoured inclination to that end in View. Baldwin Avenue should be put through from Huntington drive a few Boulevard. West Arcadia needs this facility which bes Long enough been allowed to lie dormant. Because of Public information of record that Large majority of p., a a to Loo the Bills and d 1 Nimitr .1 Hie political situation in Arad i better get together and promptly or All of us Are Likely to find Arcadia As a City which is already a Syno Myn for a Kjeu Quot in a most unsavoury mess.

Because it is doing All that it can to make Arcadia a better place in to live. The agreement will preserve your property values Home life and the High Standard of your schools. Q. What will the agreement mean to Arcadia a. Arcadia is one of Only two or three cities in the san Gabriel Valley that does not now have a race problem. You should be proud that Arcadia is your cite and Itiat you own Arcadia proper a there is a real danger however that Arcadia canner continue in it enjoy this distinction unless a of do your part and be strict your property.

It was Only by arrangement with land escrow Safe Deposit company of Alhambra that it was possible to offer All these services to you for As Little As $1.00 q.

Remember Success is up of you. Your signature and $1.00 buys insurance that will protect the value of your Home for delay May prove very Protection is ridiculously choosing George Washington for her theme Muriel Albert. 13-year-old eighth Grade student of the first Avenue school today was in Possession of the Gold medal symbolic of first place in the annual memorial Day oratorical contest sponsored by the Glenn Dyer Post no. 247, american legion last Friday night in the school auditorium. George Washington is a name that will be in the hearts of american people eternally because they see embodied in him the noblest possibilities. Albert s prize winning oration follows a a it a Man is capable of doing great things he must be great within himself. George a Hing ton was great within himself and most capable of doing great things. He proved this Point by always being ready to serve his beloved country and being True Loyal and Brave in tilt darkest hours of uncertainty. During those trying times at Valley forge Washington was the one who kept the men going under terrible conditions. And it was Many a night a Light was seen in Washington s quarters and the figure of a Man bending Over a de k until 2 or 3 of clock in the moing. No one did More to further the cause of education than George Washington. He had often regretted his meager education and when he saw poor and orphaned children left helpless because of the sacrifice made by their parents in securing the Hie sings of Liberty it touched his heart. Accordingly he became a part of the movement to establish free schools. But George Washington was More than a great Soldier and educator he was a great statesman who did More than All other men to Lay a foundation for the Republic which has enjoyed great Prosperity for More than a Century. He was a Man who possessed a keen vision which saw the future of America when it was dim to other eyes. He was a pure and High minded Gen Leman of dauntless courage and stainless Honor. Simple and stately of manner kind and generous of heart. George Washington was truly the Greate t american that Ever lived for if he were not Why did Lincoln look to him As an inspiration and a guide a in the annals of of modern greatness he stands alone and the noblest names of Antiquity lose their Laster in his devoted to Aee Ellen a1. Norris writes red Cross so history this article deals with the manner in which the red Cross is organized both nationally and in chapters. It is of the Greate i importance that just As every individual and every part of the country has the right to representation in the Conius of the United states so every individual should have the right of membership in the red Cross it he so desires and every six ton of the country should be represented a a local chapter or Branch of the organization. There Are two reasons for this. First when some serious disaster overwhelms a Community at Home or abroad every american citizen should be Able through his or her chapter promptly to express by service or by gift a helpful sympathy to those in distress. Second no Community is immune from disaster and each Community should be safeguarded by a Well organized chapter ready for immediate Relief measures in such emergencies and linked up with and backed by the great National organization in disasters of magnitude. No City is too Large or important not to need its red Cross chapter or Branch and no Community too Small to share in chapter service. Whether the individual lives in new York or Chicago or in some Rural and isolated Community he or she May become a member of the red Cross just a1 he or she May be an american citizen whether a resident of the City or of the country. National Headquarters in Washington and the area offices in St. Louis san Francisco and Washington act As the coordinating Agency for the whole organization. The National organization obtains and issues information concerning War or disaster Relief measures both National and International it provides technical information concerning red Cross services and it broadcasts to chapters the general policies Laid Down by the Central committee which under the charter is the governing body of the red Cross. But remember always that the chapters really constitute the red Cross of America. The National organization conducts some activities that Are under National directions such As the operation of major disasters work in tile hospitals for the sex service men and certain International activities but most red Cross programs Are under the direction of the local chapters. Each chapter covers a certain definite territory and members of the red Cross automatically be come members of the chapter having jurisdiction Over their communities there Are a few exception. Which will be noted later. The chapter May have As its territory a City or town. It May include outlying towns or villages As Brandle or it May have jurisdiction Over an entire county the different communities in the county forming branches of the chapter. With the exception of the state of Delaware which is covered by a single chapter with branches ail other states have a number of chapters within their Borders. The red Cross has no state organizations. Exceptions to this Are in connection with state Roll Call committees and other temporary state organizations do eloped for special purposes. The chapters receive supervision directly from their arca Headquarters those on the coast reporting to the Pacific area office in san i Unusco. A costly cheap. Q. How can i help to get this Job done a. First sign Tho agreement yourself. Second urge the neighbors on each Side of you to sign also. Third ask your near by neighbors and your friends to sign. Fourth., arrange for your neighbors to meet with you in your Home some evening and have a signing Bee. The chamber of Commerce will gladly arrange for someone to be present to answer questions and help. Q i have lost the agreement sent to me what shall i do a. Call at the chamber of Commerce office in the City Hall or phone the office Atwater 7-2792. And mrs. Dameron or or. Eberly will be glad to give you another agreement. If your property is East of Al Monte and you have never received an agreement likewise notify tile chamber of Commerce office. Traffic whys q. It it permissible for me to pass a school lo11 s which has stopped on the Highway on or at the Edge of the Highway to discharge or take in school children z. B. A the Law requires that when a school bus ii As stopped for the purpose of taking on or discharging school children that All motorists approaching or following should bring their cars to a Complete Stop and then exercise due care and caution and not proceed faster than to Miles an hour if conditions permit. Q when i step into my automobile parked at the curb just what should i do before i Start the a hide moving m. P. A. The proper method prescribed by Law is to be sure that there Are no vehicles so close As to be affected by the movement. Special care should be exercised when ones car has been parked near an intersection As traffic May turn in from the intersection and cause a crash. Q a the other Day when i was driving my car i noticed an eld Eliv person carrying a White Cane tipped with red crossing a Street and that All approaching vehicles came to a Stop. Will you please explain the cause e. S. L. A. This elderly person apparently was wholly or partially Blind til re lore the Law makes it incumbent upon every Driver to come to a Complete Stop until such person has crossed the Street when they carry such a Cane. Q. On Many part of the highways today i find that the dividing portion is identified by three lanes a White Black and yellow. What do these markings mean w. E. S. A where the Highway is painted As above indicated you must keep to the right of tile dividing line if the White Stripe is on your Side of the Highway however you would have the right to Cross Over the dividing Stripe to pass if tile yellow Stripe is on your half. A stand fast therefore in the Liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free and be not entangled again in Tho Yoke of galatians 5 a. Hometown the Tribune and special feature on mrs.
