This group of average americans Are making Jio criticisms of other movements that Are in the interests of our democracy and Good citizenship. A it appears to be a non partisan movement which embraces most cd the other movements All creeds and political affiliations into one compact practical and workable organization that not Only gives constructive criticism but also holds the solutions for most of our economic and political problems. A furthermore in studying this i movement i find that they have j also something to offer to the non j property owner because there will be restored the lost Confidence of the business Man the industrialist and the investor so that they will sex pand thus creating a tremendous demand to own property and to Purchase other commodities. All in i All the one two plan of voting is i Worth trying. I conscientiously urge j the citizens of Arcadia to investigate All the phases of this plan then Back it. I believe this Home owners and businessman s movement is the an j ser to Many i the Board of directors of the chamber of Commerce gave considerable time at their meeting monday.

To the newspaper fraternity of tin world the word a thirty a through Many years has had one specific connotation. A a thirty Means a the a a thirty is written at the close of every Story sent to the newspaper composing room. A a thirty is the signal flashed on the press wires of the nation As they cease operations every night. A a thirty is the Symbol by which members of the newspaper fraternity pay their last respects to a departed fellow. He and now the Symbol which so Long has meant a the end within tin1 realm of the fourth estate threatens to become a far More sinister Symbol for every business Man and every individual in California. A thirty thursday. A thirty warrants. A a thirty pieces of paper will if passed spell a the end of economic order and in spelling a the end for the existing economic fundamentals will end this states stability but without ending the erty upon which the plan purportedly is predicated. Of a thirty thursday mean a a thirty for poverty there would be none to dispute its right of passage but can the maladjustment of a Sugi me it of the population now pinched by poverty be remedied by diffusing that maladjustment ten thousand fold under the program for a thirty thursday logic dictates the diffusion and not the dissolution of poverty would result since 1�?the a bogus bankroll established under a thirty thursday would of necessity create commodity inflation to compensate for the confiscatory Gross Revenue and 104 per cent stamp taxes imposed upon business 2�?�?�business would be crippled because forced inflation of prices would curtail consumption among persons not beneficiaries of the a bogus bankrolls since under inflation purchasing Power of real Money would be reduced a it a with business crippled business men and organizations would be forced to reduce payrolls and unemployment among wage earners would mount steadily 4�?relief for the unemployed would be crippled because state and Federal agencies have declared that the existing systems could not be operative under the a bogus the Federal agencies have advised that real Money cannot be sent into California to Aid unemployment projects unless Federal funds Are matched with the required amount of state funds in real Money. But under a thirty thursday a the state government would be without real Cash since the scheme provides that All funds payable to tin state shall be payable in the so called warrants to it a gut of state corporations doing business in Ali fornia would be forced to retrench or suspend entirely because the a bogus bankrolls which eventually would replace real Money in California if the scheme is carried to its ultimate could not be used for anything outside the state. This would augment tin unemployment problem tremendously.
