Eighth Corps Area, will be the principal speaker at the annual National Defense Week banquet given by the Phoenix chapter of the Reserve Officers Association, to be held at 7 o'clock tonight in Hotel Westward Ho. Colonel' Keyes takes the place of Col. Theodore K. Spencer, originally scheduled to talk at the banquet, but who will be unable to attend due to illness. Also on the program tonight is Col. T. M. Gimperly of the Third Corps Area, Denver. Guests of honor at the banquet, according to Dori Hjalmarson, president of the association, will be Maj. Gen. A. M. Tuthill, Arizona adjutant general. Mayor Reed Shupe, and A. Lee Moore, chairman of the local national de- fence council. H. W. Prentis, Jr., Fears U. S. Approaches Socialism 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, Hennmg 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 The purpose of the week is to _j ent y keen the nation posted on the, « sta ' t e socialism—national status of national defense. Capt. Paul E. Case of the medical reserve is in charge of the banquet; Lt Gilbert Cady of the quartermaster reserve is in charge of announcements; Capt. O. E. Everett of the signal reserve is in 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 so-iare meals a day, a good house charge of the week activities; Lt. to live it, plenty of clothing and Col. Hoy Richards of the engineers reserve is in charge of radio talks; Lt. E. Osborn Foster of the cavalry reserve is in charge of service elub activities; and R. B. Ogan of the chaplain reserve is in charge cf church activities. o the means to enjoy life generally— a" 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? "The planners do not explain Six drivers were assessed yester- i that if they make mistakes, as ' [they certainly will, it is the com- I mon men who will suffer far more 1018 North First! than they willL They dc.not point who established this republic and gave us the priceless heritage of freedom that we enjoy today." Referring to national defense, th. speaker said: "But the speedy production of armament is not enough. If we are to build strong and secure the foundations of national defense, we must have a national economy that is strong, and well balanced. A nation whose economic activii ties are based on free private enterprise cannot function in an atmosphere of uncertainty, distrust and fear. 'To re-establish and maintain a strong national economy we need, it seems to me, a renewed sense of voluntarily imposed restraint in every segment of our national life. Those who will not govern themselves obviously must be controlled by some external power. Sclf-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 socfal stewardship xxx.

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 educational system to inculcate knowledge of and belief in our free institutions; by loss of the sense of personal responsibility — the vital quality of religion; and, last but not least, by calculated action on the Heroic Efforts Are Acclaimed SAFFORD, Feb. 18—(AP)— Mrs. Nora Shumate, 70 • year* old, who was severely bitten while 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- ed for heroism here today. The attack occurred when the child, Sheila Mclnerney, 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. Fleming And Stewart Give Platform For Gity Campaign 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 Morencl would be in production "late this year.". About 1,700 men are employed at the Mdrenci 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 in the metallurgical world." 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' 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 requirements or suffer a financial loss, and they were saved from that danger by the copper being procured outside." Gates termed the "early future" of the copper industry as "promis- i civil and religious liberty are the 1 products of freedom of intellect part of those who believe in the in _ and h'ealthv" socialized state, regardless of mg y- 0 whether they call themselves Socialists, Communists, Fascists, route9. box. -.83 So fine, suspended. j u , h condit j on of their de- «t /n IT r°7. 7nh r n g pL°/ S22 velopment and cultural expansion. at. an intersection — John Pagi, o016 4<r. f i-, R - On Guard" North Seventh street, 52. ..

If- the average American businessman knew as little about his products as he does about his governmental and economic system, he would not stay in business very long. , •_ "The fact is our individual freedom depends on the combined support of three inseparable factors— the tripod of freedom: representative constitutional democracy; free private enterprise—with reasonable government umpiring to insure fair play; and civil and religious liberty.

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 Is Incumbent Mr. Fleming now is nearing 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 commis- >n. "Since last October," said a brief statement accompanying the plat- forml "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 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 pharmacy." 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 Houston L. Walsh, retiring commissioner who is not a candidate for reelection. The platform statement of Mr. Fleming and Mr. Stewart follows: We will retain the specially trained men and women administering city department^. 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. Pension System Favored We pledge an honest civil service program impartially administered in all departments. We will work for the installation of an adequate pension system for civil service employees. We pledge ourselves to sound financial practices and good business with the elimina- of juggling the icity funds for political purposes as Peace officers early yesterday rescued two men from a long, cold night in the flooded Salt river at 16th street. The pair, Stan Roper, 35 years old 302 East Coronado road, and Florrncio Florez, 22, 1124 South Montezuma street, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital after spending more than two hours in the water. Both were released after treatment. Deputies sheriff learned the men were going south on 16th street, crossing the river despite the fact the road was blocked off, when Roper's car was washed off the road. When deputies and highway patrolmen arrived, they found Roper on top of his car, which was almost completely under water, and 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 q£ unpalatable salt water and unpurif led 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 arid building of the city. Former administrati&ns 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 department. We will further the program of traffic safety, and junior police school patrol, which are operating so successfully. We will strive for the complete elimination of vice and violence. We believe the police department should be a law enforcement body, rather than a revenue producing agency. We will instigate an active campaign to bring increased trade and industry to the city. We propose to take advantage of i .... = __, _ _ , our natural resources, and the ideal engineer, and Gail Baker, city en- 'location of Phoenix from a stand-1 the past.
