The physical effort of tugging guns and ammunition up " "but there were enemy machine gua fire and that mo]ten political campaign. One reason is that the governor can take credit for anything that was done during the administration, even if he just lifted a finger to help. For example, the latest release i'rom the "Garvey- for-governor" offices has the governor claiming credit for construction of the new capitol annex building, expected to .be completed art., next year. The governor, through no fault of his, knew nothing about the bill or saw the bill until it was introduced in the legislature. A group of legislators who had considered the housing problem of state departments for some time, drew up the bill and enlisted support for it unaided. The governor did do something for the program though. He signed the bill after the legislature passed it. The same was true about the Children's Colony. This program was laid out in an orderly fashion while Garvey was still secretary of state--money for a superintendent and a survey, then money for buildings. The same is true for the state hospital and the prison building plains and mountains of Navajo county by next election. XO ACTIVITY Reason for this is that no precinct committeemen filed for office under the Republican ticket] for the primary contest--a unique situation indeed for this stamping ground of the elephant. SHY Another oddity is that in Cochise county there are only two more Democrats registered than there were two years ago for the primary. Republican registration jumped 202 over 194S to give a total of 1,140, rivaling Republican registration in Pima county, which is more populous. Despite this increase in GOP registration, how- Sweat dripped from men's faces, glistened on arms and- soaked into fatigue garb.

God .Only Knows 'Drunkard' To Play Two 'Extra Nights Tucsonians have taken the idea of outdoor summer theater to heart--so much so that Tucson little theater's five-night run of "The Drunkard" has been sold out. In response to the demand, however, TLT is adding two performances of the 19th century melodrama.

But probably the payoff was that if he hadn't signed the bill, the building program would have hit a snag. IXWBTS · Some Californians are doubtfu' about the proposed giant pipeline from the Columbia river in Oregon to southern California. They are in a'battle with Arizona over Colorado river rights, and apparently aren't anxious to get fresh scars in a fight with Oregon. The Garvey rally tonight--which will start at 8 p.m. instead of 7:30 ·will be quite a noisy affair -- a good dance band and a show with eight acts, Robert (Buddy) Leonard will be master of ceremonies, and along with the others who are help ing is Mrs. Margo Leonard.

"Oil, the irrigation needs of Oregon would be met first," replied Truman:" Enough water runs into the ocean-from the Columbia-river to satisfy the needs of both Oregon and "California." . P,1S.

And then the wounded began corning down the hill. A soldier came down, walking with the limber legs of a ' drunken man, supported by two of his comrades. His face was almost purple and his eyes were glazed and unseeing. and racks had been built to hold the stretchers. The ambulances rolled up alongside the train and the wounded were lifted out and carried gently into the cars. Most of the wounded were still now.
