Zebu- Ion Pearce, program chairman, introduced the speakers, J. Edwin Miller, city manager; E. B. Tucker, city engineer, and George N. Goodman, mayor.

The speakers summarized the many improvements in the city during the past few years including public utilities and recreational activities expansion, street and cemetery improvements, and improvements in hospitalization. A motion picture illustrating many of these improvements was shown. Next week the meeting will be held at the exposition hall of the Arizona State Citrus Show, with Mesa club members being hosts to all Rotarians of the valley. Luncheon will be served at the hall, with inspection of the show to follow. Events Today In Valley Cities power is broken, the hordes froml™.?^ an alliance with the Nazis.
