Performing Duties Considerable surprise is being voiced here ami there over t h e ' s l a t e and especially by some of the u t i l i t y operators because of some of the actions of the Public Service commission. These a f ctions, of course, come as no surprise to citizens uf Las Cruces and Dona Ana county because they know thai LfHoy..Lei|)rand is c h a i r m a n of Ibis commission. Leibrand spent' a b o u t Iffi years w i t h p u b l i c u t i l i t i e s in Kansas before m o v i n g to New,- Mexico. He understands their problems; their operations; and lie also knows the problems of the consumers. So w h e n the prusent commission started its visits to Ihc v a r i o u s properties and p l a n t s over the stale--this was only to be expected. The commission can only f a m i l i a r i z e i t s e l f w i t h the e q u i p m e n t and p l a n t s and with the problems of the u t i l i t i e s by v i s i t i n g their plants.

A f t e r n i l , t h e business at band is the people's BtisinesK.nnd some consideration should be extended to them. i,.. And t h a t is being done. ·' The present commission prouoscs to be fair; it proposes to hoar, both sides of every issue; and il expects to reach its decision based on the facts s u b m i t t e d by both sides--not j u s t flhtf'Side. k'f/pl-nu'ans are provided. * We v 'hav(' never been too i BACK FROM THE CLEANERS If Girls Can Learn To Be Good Sports, Summer Will Be Successful Women, Children Join Strike Lines At Empire Works ny ^ ^ J^'IA^' imowx AP Ncu'sfi-atuiTs You i-an hnve u very successful summer by liiiirninf: lo be d good sport.

And we know t h u l by doing t h i s the money they earn stay- 1 ; "I home and is spent in this c o m m u n i t y instead of being t a k e n back lo Mexico. The farmers contend they can rot secure s u f f i c i e n t local help anil in some instances can't pay Ihc wnges demanded Tin- wages- paid, of course, should be in keeping w i t h lhe price of the products produced nnd in keeping w i t h pay in olhei fields of endeavor. C e r t a i n l y there have been ins'.'incus where lhe \vel-back ( w h o enter the n a t i o n illegally from Mexico) were paid even less Ibun it is required be paid the N a t i o n a l s because, the wel-backs can be t u r n e d in. B u t be t h u l us it may, we still do not agree w i t h the proposed federal legislntion'lhnt t h e - f a r m e r s can be held iTsnon-f sible for.the h i r i n g of wet-backs nnd they can be .charged ai'.d fined for doing just this. We don't believe they can be forced to determine wheth- iOr an i n d i v i d u a l is a wot-back before they hire him or not 'tfriy more tluin a business man can be expected lo determine ·whether an i n d i v i d u a l he hires or employes is an ex-convict, a murderer or an alcoholic. The employer ns a rule is looking for n w o r k m a n and not cheeking mlo-lhe history of t h e i n d i v i d u a l . Thoy can i n q u i r e in so fur as nossible nnd they c a n . m a k e other checks but in the f i n a l analysis, as we slated, they are interested in securing a w o r k m a n and not how he happened to be in the U n i t e d States, or how ho got into the U. S. Certainly we don't approve of any plan which involves the encouraging o/ Mexican nationals lo enter the U. S. illegally and we don't approve of farmers m a k i n g arrangements for them lo sneak into our nation with the promise they will have a job when they get here. We don't deny thnl is being done and we t h i n k 11 should be halted. 1 We also do not t h i n k t h a t the former should be hold responsible for dciermining whether the individual seeking cnl- plpymcnt is a wet-buck nnd then be fjned for hiring one if that is proven to be the case. It just appears lo us where this is another instance where lire fcttorfll'iJOvernmeiH Is seeking to hnve lhe taxpayers perform duties which public officials are being paid to perform.

J. Rccd. president of the Chamber of Commerce, explains the community is loo high and therefore cannot be considered for n training base. The letter explains part of the flight training must he done at 10,000 feet above the level of the ground. That would mean planes would have to operate up to 15,000 feet above sea level here. Lack of oxygen equipment ii: the training planes rules that out. Air Force regulations demand supplementary oxygen must be used at altitudes above 10,000 feet.
