School Superintendent 3 Miss Mira Barden of Mesa seeks the office of county school super intendent on her qualifications to give Maricopa county better schools. A woman of high character and broad vision, her training especially fits her for the work coming ; within the scope of this office. . Miss Barden is a graduate of the Mt. Holyoke college in Massachu-j setts and has had an additional two years work at Johns Hopkins ' university. She believes that be-j ause the schools are one of the ! greatest agencies for character j building in. boys and girls, the ; teachers should be men and women ! hot only of high scholastic train-. ing. but of strong character and ) high attainments. i t As one means of accomplishing ! this, she believes a county insti-j tute should be held yearly in order i that the teachers may have the in-' spiration of listening to highly ' trained , educators from all parts of the country. Miss Barden believes that schools in the rural districts should be equally as efficient as those In town, and If elected will put forth every effort to see that every child of school age is in school. She is state president of the Arizona Woman's Baptist Missionary society. : o ; , John F. White For Mine Inspector I i -5 giiiii f7 !?. ! John F.White, better known to hun dreds of miners and others in the state as -Jack," has resided in Ari zona 50 years, coming here as a lad of eight. Continuously from 1SS5 to 1905 he worked in the mines, auittiim the pick and muck stick in the latter year to become sheriff of Cochise county, a position in which he served until 1912. Following his term of office In Cochise county, Mr.' White came to Maricopa county, where he had acquired a mining property and which he worked until -he became state mine Inspector in 1921, so that he has had long experience not only as a working miner but as an employer of miners which peculiarly fit him for the position of state mine inspector, the chief duty of which office is one of safeguarding the lives and limbs of the workers In mines by seeing to it that all necessary precautions and safety devices are employed. Problems of mining companies also must be taken into consideration. One of Mr. White's chief claims to the suffrage of the voters for the position he once held is the fact that during his two years' administration of the mine inspector's office' he .turned back to the state treasury $4,000 of unexpended funds from the legislative appropriation for operating expenses, thus effecting a real saving to the taxpayers. Mr. White Is married and Is the father of a family of six. If 4r;-'iif ft 5 Pi A. f. McClure For Secretary of State A. H. McClure of Yuma, for 22 years a resident of Arizona, and for many years prominent as an educator in the public schools of the state, is candidate for secretary of state on the Republican ticket.

During the years 1902 and 1903 he was principal of the Concho school in Apache county, and in 1904 was appointed superintendent of schools in Nogales. Mr. McClure was also superintendent of schools In Yuma for five years prior to his entering the real estate business. f National recognition as an educator was given Mr. McClure in 1908, when he was elected vice-president of the National Educational association. He has also served as secretary of the Arizona Stat Teachers' association and as secretary of the Arizona Illiteracy commission, a non-partisan organization. He has been actively engaged in the work of the Republican party for many years and Is at present secretary of the Yuma county Republican committee. C. E. Beach For Corporation Commissioner "Charlie" Beach, as he is known to hundreds of friends throughout the state, has been a resident of Arizona more than 15 years. Born in 1876, Mr, Beach, after graduating from the Kansas State Normal school, taught for. two years, then entered the employ of the Union Pacific Railroad company at Kansas City. Later he went to California where he was married in 190:, affiliating himself with the Union Oil company of that state. In 1911, he became the Union Oil company's representative in Arizona, with headquarters in Phoenix, and so successfully conducted Its affairs that, from a one-man staff, he built up the organization to a point where It was employing over 40 people when he left the company in 1921, and doing a state business of over $1,500,000 annually. After becoming state manager for the Pennzoil company, Mr. Beach, in July of this year, organized the Beach-Doe company, handling mining and milling machinery, of which he Is now general manager. Due to his railroad experience and his wide familiarity with the fundamentals of business and transportation problems, Mr. Beach Is particularly fitted to carry out the duties of a state corporation commissioner. o C. 5. Steward For Supervisor 3 Experience and his public record are the qualifications on which C. S. (Jack) Steward is taking his stand in seeking re-election to the board of supervisors of Maricopa county from the first district. This district embraces the following precincts: Phoenix Nos. 4. 11 and 12; Parkview; Mesa Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4; Tempe Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4; Chandler, East and West; Alma; Gilbert; Heard: Lehl; Broadway; Kyrene; Goodyear and Higley. Mr. Steward was first elected a supervisor in Maricopa county In 1904 and served out his term of four years. He was elected again to that position in 1920 and completes his term December 31, next. These two terms, the candidate feels, have well qualified him to protect the taxpayers' interests and have given him the necessary experience to administer county affairs judiciously and expeditiously. Mr. Steward pledges himself. If elected, to "be on the Job every day in the future as I have done la the past." ffv - -Mil -8 Because the Arizona law prohibits candidates for judge of the supreme court having their names placed on ballots at general elections as party candidates, Charles F. Ainsworth is waging his contest for that office strictly on a non-partisan basis. Mr. Ainsworth is a college and law school graduate and has practiced his profession over 45 years. 36 years of which has been in Maricopa county. He was district attorney of Jackson county, Wisconsin, for 10 yeais, and attorney general of the territory of Arizona for four years, and has practiced in the United States supreme court 24 years. He is strictly temperate, using neither liquor nor tc-,bacco. Judge Ainsworth contends that Central Arizona, the principal agricultural section, with nearly half the population of the state, is entitled to representation on the supreme bench. Judge McAllister from Graham county Represents the southern part of the state, and Judge Ross from Yavapai county represents the northern section. Judge Lyman of Maricopa county, retiring, leaves central Arizona without representation unless Mr. Ainsworth is elected his successor. The candidate stands where the constitution of Ai-izona declares lie shall stand, at the head Of the ballot, above partisan politics, for all the people. o L. R. Baldwin For State Representative I. R. Baldwin, successful South-side rancher, believes in the application of sound business practices to the administration of governmental affairs and it is on that platform that he seeks, the suffrage of electors in the sixth legislative district of Maricopa county for the office of state representative. Mr. Baldwin was born 43 years ago on a farm in Mahoning county, Ohio, where he received his early education in the public schools. At the age of 17 he entered the Ohio State university on a teacher's certificate, taking an agricultural course, specializing in dairying. After finishing school he followed general farming and dairying, coming, to the Salt River valley 15 years ago. He has since ranched In the Tempe, Laveen and Roosevelt districts. He is a great booster for farm bureaus, good schools, good roads, agricultural development and better general conditions for the farmer. The candidate always has been a Republican and favors the Heard plan for the development of the Colorado river. Elijah Allen y For State Representative -$ Elijah Allen, one of the best-known residents of the Southside, bases his candidacy for state representative from the eighth legislative district on his knowledge of county and state arrairs gamed through a residence of 42 years in tne salt Kiver valley. Mr. Allen is a family man and a taxpayer in this county. He resides at Mesa. A thorough understanding of community and state problems will enable him, he believes, to serve his district and Arizona in a most acceptable and efficient manner. His business and professional experience, he feels, fully qualifies him for the office to which he- aspires. He has been a practicing attorney In Mesa for nearly two score years. He la a graduaae of the University of Utah, where he obtained his L.L. B. degree. Throughout his long residence on the Southside Mr. Allen has manifested a keen Interest in the welfare of the people and he has been a leader In civic affairs during all of this period.

Charles R. Holton For Attorney General -3 Rigid enforcement of all laws, without equivocation or mental reservation, reform in the parole board system and elimination, as far as possible, of the confusion and conflict of our laws form the principal planks of . the platform on which Charles R. Holton Is basing his candidacy for attorney general ,of Arizona at the general election. The attorney general Is, by law, made the advisory head of the law enforcement forces of Arizona, and this constitutes his most Important duty, in the opinion of Mr. Holton. He deplores the wholesale and Indiscriminate paroling of criminals prior to the expiration of their minimum senVmces, and pledges himself, if elected, to put a stop to this practice or lay bare to the people the true facts by every channel of publicity available. Only lawyers of sound legal attainments, rather than politicians, will be named as assistants in the event of his election, Mr. Holton asserts. Charles R.

Finch, a candidate! for state representative from the Tenth Maricopa county legislative district, which embraces Tempe and Kyrene precincts, is seeking re-election on the record he made in the last legislature, coupled with his other qualifications to serve the people of his community and 'state. As a rmlnber of the Sixth legislature, Mr. Finch endeavored to promote only those principles which made for the progress and advancement of the community. The experience he gained during that term, he feels, will be of most valuable aid to him In another term and Impressed upon him the idea that fewer laws and more Intelligent legislation ' are the present outstanding: legislative needs of the state. Important problems to be submitted to the next legislature, he feels, are big"ger than party or faction. Economy In governmental affairs and development of the Colorado river are the major issues that will confront the next law-making body. Intelligent and honest effort will accomplish these things, he feels. It is his belief that development' of the Colorado river, from a national standpoint, can be brought about through a new agreement with the states of the lower basin, an agreement that will fully protect all present and future rights of Arizona to this great heritage. o H.

For the past three years he has been a deputy United States attorney for the district of Arizona, where he has loaned his best efforts to law enforcement. These duties have fully qualified him to administer the duties of the office of the Justice of the Peace, and the East Phoenix precinct, being one of the largest in the state, it is absolutely essential to the best Interests of good government that the justice be well grounded in the fundamental principles of law. Otherwise, mistakes must necessarily occur which would mean improper adjudication of claims, necessitating appeals to the superior court, which are costly to litigants, and also criminals might escape punishment through mistakes and technicalities.
