S4.83; Tuba City, 28 beds, patriotism over a period of 37 years since its founding has never been questioned, but which today finds itself the victim 'of abuse and innuendo by the antitrust division of the department of justice. Testimony Given Testifying before the temporary national economic committee In public session, Mr. Arnold said:, "Take our indictment of Bausch and Lomb. There is something which nobody knew anything about until a large amount of money was spent in a grand jury proceeding XXX "Before Sf grand jury in New York, we are constantly uncovering startling instances of German control of defense industries as well as illegal price-fixing among American concerns x x x "At least 31 industries producing vital war materials are awaiting investigation because we do not have the facilities to deal with them." Mr. Arnold was making an appeal for additional funds and for more grand juries and for more power for his antitruft division and added that the antitrust division has a "problem of economic preparedness which is no less urgent than the industrial program of the war and navy departments." Defense Measures Claimed It has become the fashion hereabouts for bureaus and government agencies engaged in normal civilian pursuits to tack themselves on to the defense program in some way in order to get more funds for more jobs. But it is most unfortunate Willcox Show Awards Listed WILLCOX, Feb. 18— Award winners in the annual horse show sponsored by the Future Farmers of America of Wjllcox Union High School were announced here today. The events held last Saturday were judged by J. T. Rigden, extension husbandman of the University of Arizona. The winners: Class 1 — cow horse stallion— W. D. Wear, first; Sam Adcock, second. . Class 2— get of sire— J. E. Brown- Yet the department of justice got its publicity just the same. The press announcements from the department resulted in such headlines and innuendoes as "U. S. industry stocking axis war machine" and "German monopoly on gun lenses ended" and "Claim Nazi, U. S. firms in war pact" and "U. S.-Reich firms accused of plot on war goods" and "U. S. breaks Nazi control." Navy Knew Facts One wonders why the war and navy departments and their intelligence services didn't know all this before the department of justice acted in March 1940. The truth is hey knew the exact opposite, that the companies were patriotic.

December 31, 1940. there were admitted 4.333 in- patimts for 83,606 hospital days. Out-patients numbered 23,743 for a 42.466 1 roatments. Health examinations and immunizations against raallpox, diphtheria and typhoid tessinets, $3.57. From July 1 Lomb Company, makers of optical instruments, in an attempt to defend itself against the smears of Mr. Arnold's department. It is amazing that American citizens, whose patriotism is publicly attested by the secretaries of war and navy, should find it necessary to issue such pamphlets. Says the company in a foreword: "Although the case has been settled by consent of both parties and Bausch and Lomb Company and the var departmert, extending over a ong period of years, have been most satisfactory from every standpoint. At this critical time, the war department has complete confidence in your company for excel- ence of workmanship, productive ability and patriotic co-operation." A similar letter was written by the secretary of the navy last Au- ;ust, but apparently there is no letup by other persons in authority in jointing the finger of suspicion The various businesses involved may derive some consolation from the fact that there is nothing really personal or vindictive in the smear :ampaign—it's just another way ol forcing funds out of congress by the new technique of shouting "fifth column." It's only one of a number of ways of pulling the wool over the eyes of congressmen who have billions to spend for "defense," and, ol course, Thurman Arnold's division isn't the first to_ use the strategy. —o Mother Of Arizona Resident Succumbs DRAGOON, Feb.

Navy Was Informed The theory that Americans conspired with "Germans to block the production of essential instruments which was the thesis of the antitrust division here is refuted the company as follows: "The original contract (1921) was shown to the U. S. naval observer in Berlin within a month of its execution, and through him the bureau of naval intelligence and the bureau of ordnance were informed Every naval inspector stationed at the plant has known about the contract. It was not realized until prtric power; S. A. Raney, preda- 1936 that the provision concerning animal control, and A.
