Strong and his son, Bobby, study old pictures in one of 35 historically valuable scrapbooks compiled by Strong's grandmother, who came to the Arizona Territory as a bride in 1879. Mrs. Brown was a parttime correspondent for Ohio newspapers, writing about her adopted Southwest. (Citizen Photo by Dave Acton) Early Defender Of Arizona Was Late Mrs. J.K. Brown By MARGARET KUEHLTHAU] Citizen Staff Writer "You have never visited the Arizona Territory. "So how can you describe this sun kissed land as a sandy desert, where all reptiles abound and where horned toads, gila monsters, centipedes, tarantulas, Chinamen, Mexicans, and 'greasers' flourish?" The year was 1897 and Mrs. J. K. Brown was writing aa answer to an Ohioan who had scorned her own enthusiastic description of the Southwest where she had come as a bride in 1879, arriving in Tucson on Christmas eve. A correspondent for the Valley Register in Nelsonville, Ohio, she was indignant at the slurs cast upon the Arizona Territory. Quite likely she also was one of the first women from this area to write for newspapers in the East. Her home was the Sahuarita Ranch about 20 miles south of Tucson. She invited the Ohioan, who had written the snide remarks about Arizona, to visit this part of the nation and to see for himself the beauty of the land and to know its friendly inhabitants. Mrs. Brown, oddly enough, wrote her column under the pen name of "The Spider." None of her descendants living in Tucson today knows her reason for this pseudonym. L. H. Strong, 3301 E. Pima St., is a grandson of Mrs. Brown who compiled an histori- FOR VIET WAR DUTY U.S. Army Launches Hunt For Super Dog By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army has set out to find a "super dog" for the Vietnam war. Specifications call for the best possible purebred or crossbred animals that "can cope with a critical problem in Southeast Asia--tracking the enemy and alerting t roops to mines, tunnels, booby traps and ambush." Army veterinarians and geneticists, tt, 6 - r with University of Marylaim scientists, hope to evaluate from 500 to 1,000 puppies next year under this project. Five types are being evaluated: --Purebred Labrador retrievers, hunting dogs with excellent field control characteristics. --German shepherds, which have been used by the U.S. Army in scout and sentry work. --A cross between the Labrador retriever and the foxhound, combining the Labrador's field talents with the smaller breed noted for its sense of smell. --Crossbred German shepherd and small collie with Labrador retriever for size and combined intelligence. --Purebred standard poodles, for intelligence. Dogs used in this research program either are bred at special kennels or bought from commercial kennels. Experts explain that a crossbred dog's family tree is traceable while the mongrel's background usually is unknown. Only Crossbreds are used in the Army-University of Maryland study. Full evaluation of the dogs at the university's Canine Behavior Laboratory is performed in five stages and takes about 85 327-3434 ROSCOE DRUMMOND backgrounds the news In the CITIZEN days. When the process starts, the dogs are 10 to 12 weeks old. Afterward, the Army experts may decide to keep the best dogs as breeding stock. Each Army brigade in Vietnam is supposed to have one scout dog platoon with up to 32 animals controlled by handlers. Ideally, the platoon's point man--at the head of a column --would have a dog with him trained to range silently within eyeshot and to give an alert of enemy presence, a mine or booby trap. The Army's Limited War Laboratory at Aberdeen, Md., has developed an electronic device to be hitched to a dog's 'narness to help in detecting the enemy. But regardless of electronics, Army genetecists and other scientists decided more than two years ago that nothing beats the dog as a sensor. "It was agreed that no weapons system has been devised that can replace a good dog and handler for the specific unusual missions they can perform," said an Army research and development publication. cal treasure trove of 35 scrapbooks, many of which are now in his possession. The scrap books contain original copy o. material she sent back to the Ohio newspaper and clippings 6 her printed stories. Another grandson living in Tucson is Dr. James K. Strong of 55 N. Avenida De San Ra mon. Defending her adopted South west, Mrs. Brown wrote tha the things written by her critic "were not one-half as bad as he represented." "In fact, I would rather con tend with the whole outfit than with the 'hobo' who infests the eastern states and who is a constant menace to life and property," she countered. "We live 20 miles south of the ancient and honorable pueblo o Tucson, on the main traveled stage road which is one of con stant freighting, and in all the years we have lived here (17) we have never been molestec and have never locked our doors at night." After they arrived in Tucson Mrs. Brown's husband went into the mining business and ac quired ownership of the Sahaur- ita Ranch, believed to be one o_ the oldest cattle ranches in the Southwest. He also served as Pima County sheriff in 1892 93. Their oldest daughter was the third white child born in Tucson and the family moved from the ranch back to Tucson in 1900. The scrapbooks, with an in valuable collection of old photographs, sheet music and other artifacts were discovered in th_ home of Mrs. Marguerite Strong who died in 1966. Mrs. Strong was the daughter of the Jame, K Browns and had lived at 42 S. 5th Ave. since 1912. Mrs. Brown, who was a fore runner of the local Chamber o Commerce with her glowing de scriptions of the territory, died in 1953 it 93. On one occasion, she told her eastern readers: "Every month of the year we have fresh vegetables and 10 or 15 cents a day will keep our table looking very enticing with celery, green onions, lettuce spinach, and other vegetables. "With a little water, the desert blooms like a rose." IOTTVED IN SCOTLAND rRlMVU QUALITY BLEMEO SCOTCH IVHISKY, SB S PROOf- SCOTTISH t. NEWCASTLE IMPORTERS CO,f;E\VYOBlC H.V.

PAGE II FANNIN INCLUDED One In 5 U.S. Senators Reputed To Be Millionaire By HARRY KELLY WASHINGTON (AP) - At least one of every five U.S. senators is considered to be a millionaire. This is the finding of an Associated Press survey of senators and (heir associates, back home and in Washington. It adds to the Senate's reputation as the country's "most exclusive club." One senator figures the ratio of Senate millionaires is even higher than one out of five. In a private conversation he estimated that 30 of his colleagues--or almost one third of the ]00 senators--were worth a million dollars or close to it. It is impossible to draw a detailed picture of senatorial assets or financial dealings. Most politicians avoid publicizing their wealth and the sources of it. Despite annual demands--and the inevitable drives after such scandals as the Thomas Dodd case--the Senate, as well as the House, has refused to pass a law requiring members to disclose financial holdings, dealings and worth. In some cases a senator widely believed in his home slate to be a millionaire denies that he is. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., Democratic whip and chairman of the Finance Committee, is believed to be a millionaire by the homefolk. They point to land holdings, oil stock and a Baton Rouge law firm. Asked about this, Long replied ambiguously: 'I have never actually submitted a statement of worth that showed $1 million." Sen. Wallace F. Bennett, R- Utah, senior Republican on the Banking and Currency Committee and former president of the National Association of Manufacturers, has been ranked as a millionaire. He owns a firm that manufactures paint and distributes glass and also has an auto dealership. But he says reports that he is a millionaire are in error. Among the acknowledged millionaires: The brothers Kennedy --Robert F. of New York and Edward M. of Massachusetts. Their father Joseph Kennedy's fortune was estimated at $300 million in 3963. One half was reported to be in trust funds for the Kennedy children and grandchildren. Both Maryland senators- Democrats Daniel B. Brewster and Joseph D. Tydings--are of wealthy families. Tydings says he does not consider himself a millionaire, yet. Brewster acknowledges he is. Illinois Republican Charles H. Percy's fortune is estimated at $5 million or more. Percy, elected to the Senate in 1966, started as a stock boy in Bell Howell camera firm and left as board chairman. Claiborne Pell, D-R.I. says his fortune was inherited and supplemented through investments. He is a limited partner in the brokerage firm of Auchincloss, Parker and Redpath. Paul Fannin, R-Ariz., estimated his wealth at "in the neighborhood of a million dollars," all in land and buildings. Sen. Thruston B. Morton, R- Ky., a former assistant secretary of state and GOP national chairman during the Eisenhower administration, acknowledges he is a millionaire. In 1966 Morton said he had $1,170,000 in Pillsbury Mills stock and that he and his wife had trust accounts of about $1.2 million. Hawaii Republican Hiram Fong issued a financial statement prior to his 1964 re-election which estimated his net worth at $2 million. Fong is president of Finance Factors, Ltd., an industrial loan firm, and is a founder of the law firm Fong, Miho, Choy and Robinson. Peter H. Dominick, R-Colo., is a member of the family which owns the Wall Street brokerage firm of Dominick Dominick. Virginia Democrat Harry F. Byrd Jr. has holdings which include controlling interest in two daily newspapers and one weekly in Virginia and interests in large apple growing, packing and processing operations as well as other businesses. Sen. B. Everett Jordan, D- N.C., Is considered a self-made millionaire. According to local sources and Who's Who, Jordan is general manager, secretary treasurer and director of Sellers Manufacturing Co., a cotton mill; secretary treasurer and director of the Jordan Spinning Co.; president, treasurer, general manager and director of Royal Cotton Mill Co., and director of various other firms including the Wachovia Bank and Trust Co. of Winston-Salem. Both Missouri senators--Democrats Edward V. Long and Stuart Symington--are reputed to be millionaires. Symington inherited money and added to it by rehabilitating Emerson Electric Co. of St. Louis during World War II. In addition to being a lawyer, Long is in farming and the small loan, banking and insurance business. Sen. Clinton P. Anderson, D- N.M., chairman of the Senate Aeronautical and Space Committee, owns an insurance business. An aide said the senator \s a millionaire. Westmoreland Reaffirms His Confidence In Marines SAIGON (UPI)-Gen. William C. Westmoreland issued a formal statement today reaf- firming his faith in the U.S. Marines who are holding the northern provinces of South SMALL WEEKLY or MONTHLY TERMS ARRANGED Crescent Jewelers offers you ...

Westmoreland apparently felt impelled to issue the statement in the face of reports he lad shaken up the military ommand along the Demilita- ·ized Zone (DMZ) because he lad lost confidence in the leathernecks' ability to with- tand a Communist offensive here. The reports stemmed from he fact Westmoreland had sent Jen. Creighton Abrams, his .ssistant U.S. commander, to he Marine-run Northern I Corps area to take over management of the DMZ and he Khe Sanh area. "Contrary to these specula- ive news stories, I wish to make it absolutely clear that these arrangements are based on tactical and management considerations and have nothing .0 do with the performance of the Marines, which is, and always has been, excellent," Westmoreland said. U.S. Army Lt. Gen. WOliam ^osson, former commander of U.S. forces in central South Vietnam, has subsequently been assigned as Abrams' assistant at "Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, Forward," established at Phu Bai on the northern coast. "It has distressed me greatly :o learn that some news articles lave interpreted the changing command arrangements in the I Corps tactical zone as a reflection against the U.S. Marine Corps and the 3rd Marine Amphibious force," Westmoreland said. Marine Lt. Gen. Robert Gushman is still the commander of the top five provinces, which have been reinforced with several Army units since the Communist buildup began about a year ago "One of the principles of military management is that the span of control of commanders must be kept within normal bounds," Westmoreland said. This apparently meant the command of both the Marines and Army troops would put too much of a strain on Cushman. "There is a limit to the number of subordinate units' that any one commander can control efficiently," Westmoreland said. "I wish to state emphatically that I have ^reat admiration for ttw U.S. Marine contingent in Vietnam, from its commander down to the lowest private."
