Page Ten 'Arizona Republic, Phoennc, Wednesday Morning, February 19,1941 Teleph New Property H. W. Prentis, Jr., Fears To Yield Soon U. S. Approaches Socialism DOUGLAS, Feb. 18—(AP)—Louis S. Gates, president of Phelps Dodge Corporation, stopped here tonight while on an inspection trip of his company's properties, and said the new copper development at Morenci would be in production "late this year." About 1,700 men are employed at the Morenci project. Gates disclosed. Progress Reported "The construction work at Mpr- enci is going forward with fine progress," he said. "When we get the plant completed it will be one of-the finest to be found in the copper industry, because we are combining in its construction the successful features of smelter construction which have been proved through operation' by the leading producers world." in the metallurgical When plans for developing the Unless Americans regain their spirit of intellectual inquiry and patriotism, this democracy will degenerate into a socialist state in which all the basic American freedoms will be nonexistent, Henning W. Prentis, jr., chairman of the board of the National Association of Manufacturers and president of the Armstrong Cork Company, declared here yesterday. Speaking at a "breakfast" at the Valley Field Riding and Polo Club arranged by the Dude Wranglers, Mr. Prentis sounded a call for leadership, and challenged businessmen in particular either to work in behalf of true freedom or see autocracy enslave -this nation as it has European nations. Freedom Basis Described "Industry thrives'on a high standard of living," the speaker said. "But it is not economic plenty alone that creates the blessings of freedom. It- is freedom with its Those who will not govern themselves obviously must be controlled uy some external'power. • Self-Restraint Needed "So today we need in business and industry the sort of self- restraint that will put' the national welfare first, self-restraint that will give national defense the unquestioned right of way, self-restraint that will not countenance profiteering in any form, self-restraint that will voluntarily exercise a broader and deeper sense of social stewardship xxx. "We need self-restraint on the part of labor that will not seek to find in the present emergency ground for pressing unreasonable demands for higher wages that will inevitably start in motion the deadly spiral of rising prices and even- Clay ore body were announced in i release of intellectural and spir- 1939, estimates placed the cost at $27,000,000, but since then the figure has been hiked. Gates said the program had been planned so that production could start early next January, but the work has been proceeding ahead of schedule and the property should be ready "a few weeks before that" Market Absorbs Output Phelps Dodge, the president said, Is attempting to produce "every pound of copper possible' 1 and "the market is absorbing the output promptly." Recent foreign imports of copper, he said, were due "to a market condition in which certain contractors had to provide for their require" - *- : - 1 loss, that ments or suffer a financial and they were saved from danger 'by the copper being procured outside." Gates termed the "early future" of the copper industry as "promising and healthy." itual power that produces economic plenty. "State socialism—national planned economy—is a very alluring picture when looked at as an abstract principle. What could be finer than to be told that for the remainder of one's life he would enjoy under such a system three square meals a day, a good house to live it. plenty of clothing and the means to enjoy life generally- all without any emphasis being placed on what the individual must do in return for all these blessings? "The planners, of course, never stress that someone has to produce all these things, nor do they tell us that, when all is said and done, the men who produce these blessings will be none other than ourselves. They do not tell the gullible public that, under their system people who do not work voluntarily will be forced to work. What Of Mistakes?

"We need the sort of self- restraint on the part of the government in every department—local, state and national—that will put curbs on every unnecessary expenditure; self-restraint that will withhold the exercise of these newborn powers that otherwise will 'shackle the liberties of the people'; self- restraint that will curb the tongues of those who accentuate class cleavage instead of binding up the wounds of the bitter years gone by; self-restraint that will find its practical application in Loncoln's 'with malice toward none, with charity for all.' Says Faith Weathered "Faith in the principles of the American republic and our highly developed-economic system xxx has been tragically weakened in the past generation—particularly during the past decade—by laziness and neglect of our duty as citizens; by failure on the part of our educatfonal system to inculcate knowledge of and belief in our free Heroic Efforts Fleming And Stewart Give Are Acclaimed DU*A™.~, PV«. f.fvratnnaiai SAFFORD, Feb. 18—(AP)— Mrs. Nora Shumate, 70 yean old, who was severely bitten whUe rescuing: a three-year- old girl when the child was attacked and seriously lacerated by a large dog at near-by Indian Hot Springs, was acclam- cd for heroism here today. The attack occurred when the child, Sheila Mclncrney, tried to pet the animal. Mrs. Shumate, mother- of Harry Shumate, operator of a resort where Sheila's grandparents were swimming, snatched the child and held her in the air. Mrs. Shumate's hands and arms were torn as the leaping dog attempted to reach the child. She' was brought here for a skin grafting operation. The little girl was said to be "resting easily" at a hospital. The dog was taken _ to Phoenix to undergo rabies tests. Car Overturns, Four Injured GLOBE, Feb. 18—Four persons were injured when the car in which they were returning to Globe from an automobile trip overturned on a curve about 6% miles southwest of Globe on the Russel Gulch road, according to a report made to William H. Richardson, Gila county sheriff. The four were brought to the Gila County Hospital here lor treatment. The injured: Homer Saylor, 25 years old, Miami, owner and driver of the car, cuts and lacerations on arms and leg. Dudley Magbie,- 23, Miami, possible loss of his right eye, body injuries. He was taken to the Miami- Inspiration hospital in Miami for further treatment. Lucille Piihara, 20, and Ann Pu- hara, 18, both of Globe, cuts and body bruises. For City Campaign Pledging, among other objectives, a continuance of "progressive and stable government," an honest civil service program, sound financial practices and provision for a water supply adequate to preclude a recurrence of last summers water emergency. J. R. Fleming and Newell W. Stewart yesterday announced the official platform on which they are basing their joint campaign for city commissioners. Other points touched on in their platform statement included sanitation and public health, continued efforts in behalf of aviation developments here, development and improvement of public facilities such as libraries, strict enforcement of all laws and activity in behalf of industrial development and progress here. Fleming I« Incumbent Mr. Fleming now is nearing the end of his second term as a com- milsioner. With the exception of his first year in office, however, and until recently, he has been a minority member of the commis- 'Since last October," said a brief | statement accompanying the platform, "when he became a majority commissioner, he has been able to put into effect many of the principles he believes to be for the best interests of the city. It is upon his record of service that he is t-ke what he gets rather than what he wants. "Neither do the planners tell how they will measure the worth one individual's labor as-ainst that of the others. And. last but not least, they never stress what will happen' to the individual citizen who criticizes their programs. "They never explain that tho carrying out of their long-range j plans necessarily must not be ham- legion members, according to Dr. E. C. Seale, post commander. A permanent file will be kept on each registrant, including name, address, qualifications, special training, and other data. Farm Security To religion, freedom of speech, freedom of press or freedom of assembly. In other words, they do not dare to make clear what is actually true, namely, under national planned economy—state socialism— the government must control every opinion-forming quality of religion; and, last but not least, by calculated action on the part of those who believe in the socialized state, regardless of whether they call themselves Socialists, Communists, Fascists, Nazis or New Liberals.

Lusgeorgia McGee, five, and Mrs. McGee were unable to reach the girl as the train approached. The engineer, I. P. McBride, stopped the train after 46 cars had passed over the child. seeking re-election. "Mr. Stewart," it continued, "a widely known young local pharmacist, has a background of sound business training and keen understanding of governmental problems which will enable him to work in harmony with his colleagues, Mr. Fleming and W. J. R, Sims (holdover commissioner). Active In Civic Affairs "In addition to successfully operating his own drugstore for 15 years, he has been active in civic and fraternal affairs here and also has for several years been a member of the state board of phar- macv." Candidacies of Mr. Stewart and Mr. Fleming, a Phoenix cotton broker, are supported by the commission's present administration or 'majoritv group, now comprising Mr. Fleming, Mr. Sims and Houston L.

Feb. 18— (AP>—Mrs. gineer, who Is a trained hydraulic engineer, we will carry through to completion a program of water development with two aims; first, to eliminate the shortage hazard experienced last June, and second, to eliminate tho necessity of unpalatable salt water and unpurlfied raw river water,' dangerous to the health and reputation of the city. The present engineering department has obtained new sources of supply which are supplemental to the present system so that Phoenix will be assured plenty of pure water for all purposes to meet any eventuality. Health Program Planned We are pledged to a public health program essential to the well being of the entire city. The rapid growth and expansion of the city, which overtaxed the water supply last summer, likewise has caused the municipal sewage disposal plant to reach its maximum capacity. We propose to install additional facilities to meet the continued progress and building of the city. Former administrations have ignored the sewage needs of the city as completely as they failed to meet the water crisis last summer. We pledge our continued efforts toward making Phoenix the aviation center of the West, thereby contributing to the national defense program. In spite of the opposition vote of the mayor to this program the present administration is completing the purchase of the Litchfield army air corps training base, which will result in the stimulation of business and trade channels through the expenditure of more than $4,000,000.00 annually. With the help of Commissioner Sims, long a sponsor of aviation development, we are pledged to continue this beneficial program and expand it to the fullest extent possible. Municipal Development We are pledged to a long range and orderly program of city building. One of the long felt needs of the city is the development ot the civic center, consisting of library art buildings and auditorium and municipal theater. The ground for this project has been donated and part of the funds have been obtained, and it is our purpose to give every assistance toward the completion of this project.
