Page Ten i == New Property To Yield Soon 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 Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Wednesday Morning, February 19, 1941 i , ' !•-•= H. W. Prentis, Jr.. Fears Heroic Efforts year. About 1,700 men are employed at the Morenci project, Gates disclosed. Progress Reported "The construction work at Morenci 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 Clay ore body were 'announced in 1939, estimates placed the cost at 527,000,000, 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" 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 requirements or suffer a financial loss, and they were saved from 1hat danger by the copper being procured outside." Gates termed the "parly future of the copper industry as "promising and healthy." Prescott Vets U. S. Approaches Socialism t> 'PRESCOTT, Feb. 18—Registration of World War veterans of this district for possible home defense service will he conducted between 9:30 a. m. and 5 p. m. Saturday in the legion memorial hall here under auspices of the Ernest A. Love post, American Legion. The project has been planned in conformance with an authorization given at the legion's 1940 national convention. All World War veterans may 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 release of intellectural and spiritual 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 sauare 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 dp 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? planners do not explain „ they make mistakes, as they certainly will, it is the common men who will suffer far more S_x than they will. They do not poinl Ctiout that the individual citizen will t-ke what he gets rather than Those who will not govern them- elves obviously must be controlled by 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 unques- :ioned right of way, self-restraint .hat will not countenance profiteer- ng 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 ;o find in the present emergency *round for pressing unreasonable demands for higher wages that will nevitably start in motion the deadly spiral of rising prices and even- The that if what he wants. "Neither do the planners tell how they will measure the worth one individual's labor airainst that of the others. And, last but not least, they never stress what will happen to the individual citizen who criticizes their programs.

In other words, they do not dare to make clear what if actually true, namely, under na^ tional planned economy—state so cialism — the government mus' control every opinion-forming tual inflation; the restraint that will sort of self- find peaceful solutions to all industrial disputes so that there may be no cessation n our national defense effort and the concurrent production of as much peacetime goods as the present emergency will permit. "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 sowers 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.'

Pledging, among other objectives, a continuance of "progressive and stable government," an honest civil service program, sound - financial practices and provision lor a water supply-adequate to preclude a recurrence of last summer s 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 neanng the end of his second term as a commissioner. With the exception of his first year in office, however, and until recently, he has been a minority member of the commission. . . , "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.

Mrs. Clifford a native of Denmark, was the widow of 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 the necessity of unpalatable salt water and unpurified 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 of 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. We further advocate, as a part of this orderly program of municipal development, the much needed drainage and widening of our city streets, We will give our unqualified support to those splendid civic organizations which are striving to make Phoenix a better and more beautiful city. Law Enforcement We will continue the crime prevention and detection program which Chief Lou Holtzendorff has so ably inaugurated in the police in all departments." We will work | department.

Candidacies of Mr. Stewart and Mr. Fleming, a Phoenix cotton broker, are supported, by the commission's present administration or majority group, now comprising Mr. Fleming, Mr. Sims and Hous- toa L.

The platform statement of Mr. Fleming and Mr. Stewart follows: We will retain the specially trained men and women administering city departments. the burden of efficient administration of the policies and program of the city commission rests upon the department heads. The present department heads and employees will be retained as long as they perform their duties competently and reliably.
