    Ex-Professional Men Bootleg
In Arizona; No Social Caste;
Cost Of Living Very High
Editor 61 The Star:
I am not writing this for th*
benefit of the chamber of commerce
nor to cause young men to leave
home, but while the rest of the
country is shivering in their shoe'
and roasting their shins before some
wood or coal stove, we in Phoenix,
Arizona, are sitting on our from
porches and basking in the warm
sunshine, while the birds '-'.liip
merrily to the trees and flowers art
blooming all around. 'This is Why
thousands of people come to Phoe
nix every winter, and I guess it U
why I remain here most all th?
year round.
The thermometer In my office
registers 80 during the day and on
my front porch it lias now reached
85 in the shade, this at 3:30 in the
afternoon of Sunday February trt
No snow ever falls in Phoenix, and
seldom there is a frost or a freeze.
However, one can drive to the snow
topped peaks in a lew hours time
But it takes money to live in Ari
zona. An ordinary four room house
costing nbout $500 to build on a
$400 lot rents for from $35 to $.>6
per month, and by ihfc time
pays for gas and lights, the bill runs
up to $60 or $lj per month, not inJ
eluding groceries, which depends
upon the size of the family and
their appetite. Despite all this, there
is no place in the United Sta es
where one can make money easier
unless it Is by counterfeiting It
There are many people here inde
pendently rich who came here sink
a few years ago with only about
$1,000.00 in their pockets, and many
of them never struck a itc.k of work
doing it. .
Anyone coming here broke am
expecting to make money work ug
at so metrade arc simply out o'
Jock. But those who already have .)
some money saved up and wane to
fjpend the vest of their lives in cws.v
In one of tl>o most healthy climate.;
in the world, if they have any abil -
ity at all. they ban double their .a
vestment hero every few years.
Changing Professions,
No use for a man to come here
expecting to work at the trade he
had in the east and make money
We have ex-bunkers here who arc
running tourist camps or hotels, and
ex-blacksmiths who are ruiui.r"
banks. I know a man here who was
a barber in the east and who is now
running a big general store and h
successful. X also know an ex
preacher who is a successful gr w
eryman, and an . rx-tnoonshin-t
from the east who is preaching here
nnd making ghod at it too.
There is a lawyer here from wav
hock east who is in the bootlegg'vv
business and making a pile of
money. Ho Is smart enough to kcej
from getting caught and when he
•gets caught he is smart enough to
get out of it.

N. C. **1 would lie awake
half the night 1 was dizzy
anil weak, suffered frequently
with pains in my side and
small part of my back.
"When I was a girl, my
mother gave mo Cardui, and it
did me so much good, I thought
I would try it again. I took
fire bottles, and I feel like •
new person.
*1 think it is fine. I would

does not do him any good here. If
any of Ids ancestors came over or.
the Mayflower, he had better l -r
get it when he crosses the Miss ■
sippi river, because should he men
tion it out here, tie is a marked inn
and nobody will have anything
more to do with him. Caste meant
nothing here. It's what you are and
can do now, that counts.
We have successful business mini
out here who have served time in
some eastern penitentiary. Should
someone start to talk of this i i '
lie would get his nose mashed
right pronto, and perhaps a few
teeth knocked down his throat. Mid
slinging and backbiting lias no place
in Arizona. When a man has so ur
thing against his neighbor, if he is
not man enough to step out and sn
tie it wit ha six shooter, he keeps
quiet about it.
Every state in the united btav.j
is represented here Mv neighbor t n
the west comes from Colorado, thort
on the south from New York. tliosf*
on the east from Pennsylvania ■
those on the north from Georgia. V
only know the names of those on
the south and west, and white T
have lived here a war I have never
been asked my name but once in
this neighborhood. Names mean lit
tle in Arizona.
Besides my oecupulich, that of a
private investigator and detect! te
does not permit me to go around
making many, acquaintances. 1 nut *
know lots about bthc folks without
’citing tlie mknow .much about me
1 am frequently asked by'Home of
my best friends "How's business"
they think 1 am it salesman. Other
think that I am living on govern
ment compensation and • otft.vs
think I am in the novelty ndverru
ing business. As a matter of fact, I
do not draw a cent from Uncle Sam
and seldom sell anything. My cheek
for my services comes front Now
York city every month, and Its v.
as big as I would like it to be either. )
Don’t Go to Aitzona.
I have received something hkc i
two hundred letters from people in
North and South Carolina, inquir
ing about this climate etc., a id
asking if there fs any work to b"
had out here for someone who is
suffering with tuberculosis, *tc
While I do not have time to reply
to all of these letters personally, I
want to udvl.se any and all not t
come here expecting a remunera
tive position of any kind. In fact
the state legislature has just passed
a bill making It aimojft a felony <r
any contractor or liini to eimvoy
anyone on public work, etc,, unless
they are citizens and voters of Ari
zona. This Is done to protect tub
people already here, Ai d for thpvy
who are sick, they raid not earn
enough to buy their clothes. Tut
for those who fiavc some nioi'c-’
already saved up, ant enough to
vest in some iittle business, they ah
get well and make money at he
same time, that Is if they have •-Ns
proper ability.
1 often have inquiries about non.e
steads. Yes there is much land in
Arizona that can sit.' be honi:
s traded. but one must have enoi h
funds to make the necessary m
provemeitts and spend several ye'.rs
betore there will be returns. Usu
ally t his is the most xpensive msiV
ed of acquiring land in the entite
southwest.
As for the Boulder Dam. There U
a suit before the United States -j
prerae court that Arizona has 11 id I
against this project ’bat must be!
settled before the dart can be bT’e
No one should invest througli he
malls or otherwise in i>hy land pr;-j
posed to be near the Boulder D.vi;
because the land within three hun
dred miles of this site in either di
rection is not worth five cents an
acre. Many people here in this town
have already lost thousands of do.
lars to California real estate slick
ers on such propositions as this al
ready.
Anyone wanting accurate and
proper information about this coun
try should write the Santa Fe Rati
road company, Phoenix, Ariz., The
Arizona Club, or Chamber of Com
merce, Phoenix, Arizona, and esk
for whatever information they ie
sire on any one subject. While I lixe

Einstein Religion
Given In 200 Words
Sick Orphan Girl
The rrll(ioti of Albert tin- !
stein, thr scientist, is summed up j
in 200 words in an article pub- |
llsheil by the Woman's Home
Companion.
"There are three forms of religious
experience. First, the religion of
fear which under primitive condi
tions looks for protection to a Su
preme Being whose lavor It strives
to win by deeds and sacrifices. Sec
ond, the moral religion guided by a
Clod or Providence, whose actions
are essentially social and moral. It
is this type of religion which now
prevails among civilized peoples.
Third, the cosmic religious sense
which is the highest religious exper
ience, in which one feels the vanity
rf human desire and alms, and the
nobility and marvelous order which
are revealed in nature and in the
world of thoughts,
"Since this religion has no body of
doctrine, no church can be based
upon it. Therefore those who hold
with It. are fated to be called here
tics. And yet. the only deeply re
ligious people of our largely mater
ialistic age are the earning men of
reach. What a deep faith in the ra
tionality of the structure of the
the world there must have been in
Kepler and Newton to enable them
to unravel the mechanism of the
heavens in long years of lonely
work!
"Only those who have dedicated
their lives to similar ends can have'
a living 'conception Of' the IftSptra -
l ion which gave these men the pow-i
er to remain loyal to their purpose j
in spite of countless failures .It Is
the cosmic religious sense which j
granted this power."
Dr. Hary Emerson Kosdick, who
has been called upon to defend hie
placing of u statue of Einstein in
his own church, continents:
"They are a notable company to
day, these choice men and women
who are puzzled and dubious about
God. They are dedicated spirits.
They give themselves without rest
to tiie search for truths that will
help human needs. They are the su
preme examples of the unrecogniz
ed God. As the New Testament puts
it., ‘He that doeth good is of God.
There in the center of his life, in
the ideal he works for. In the serv
ice he renders—there Is God."
BIY TO I
IN WOULD PEACE
The rapid growth in the number
of Rotary clubs throughout the
world has brought a corresponding
increase In the problems of admin
istering so extensive an organiza
tion. One method toward preparing
the way for a solution of many ol
these problems will l*- proposed at
the next convention of Rotary In
ternational to be held at Vienna
next June, Under the new proposal
the Rotary dlrectorrte will be in
creased by the election of two ad
ditional directors to be selected
from countries other than the Unit
ed States. Canada, and Great Brit-;
rln. If the new, proposal is adopted,
the United States will no longer
have a majority of directors on the
Rotary Board. However, it is the
feeling of the present board that
such wider representation- will give
greater impetus to the Rotary move
ment throughout the world and
pave the. way for the more effective
Contribution that Rotary may make
toward the promotion of friendli
ness and understanding among the
peoples of the world, states Almon
E Roth, president of Rotary Inter
national. writing in the February
Rotarlan.
"If an inquisitive man from Mars
were to travel up and down our
continents and across our seas.”
says Mr. Roth, "he would surely
conclude that our most poignant
social distresses—such as war, fam
ine, and unemployment—are direct
ly t ratable to the fact that we
have organized our planet not to
bring men together in work and
in play, but to keep them apart. No
doubt he would wonder why a race
which had mrdr such great mater
ial advances tn the last one hun
dred years oMts existence had
achieved so little in the art of llv
; ing together,
"tfo matter how strong the desire
for international tinderstanding
may be. it never will be achieved
until Citizens of different nations
1 learn the art of international co
operation and team-work. It Is In
this field that Rotary has a golden
opportunity.
"As a world-wide organization.
Rotary is conducting a great exper
iment tn human relations. When
one considers the obstacles which
have been overcome in bringing
Rotary to Its present world-wide
development, It must be admitted
that already Rotary has dem >n
strated that R Is possible to achieve
international cooperation, notwith
strndtng traditional differences of
religion, language, national customs,
and economic conditions. Probe Uly
at no time in our history will the
difficulties arising from these dif
ferences be so acute as they have
been during this early period when
Rotary lias been spreading around
the world
, “I have the eonVicuoiV' says Mr.
t
Roth, "that Rotary's opportun’ty
lies not in tile solution by mass ac
tion of troublesome economic prob
lems and other causes of Inte na
tional misunderstanding tout In the
development of a friendly b* K
ground for the consideration ol
these problems.
"I am not so sanguine or pre
sumptuous as to expect Rotary to
stop war, though 1 wish It could.
Unfortunately there Is no simple
formula—no golden rule to peace.
TlviS great social objective can only
be attained, as all others are, by
long continued, often dlscourngi ig.
effort of countless agencies. But, of
one thing 1 am certain Rotary Is
playing Its part in this process In a
most practical and effective man
ner."

.EVERY THREE WEEKS
The human body .stages a full
fledged South American revolution
within its own territories every
three weeks, according to Dr Ad
olph F. Adolph of the univei »tty ot
Rochester. The doctor, quoted In
The Country Home, reveals that
the body changes its'water content
every 21 days on the average—-ana
the body is 93 percent water!
Nitrogen, chief element in the
chemical composition of muscle, is
generally renewed in 290 day per
iods, he adds. .The iron in the body
is changed every ten months.
