FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22,-1922
THE COCONINO :SUN

A worn-out Ford body, ben to a
new shape and covered with cretonne
makes a cute umberlln stand for the

looking car. A policeman grabbed
him and wanted to know "for phat
in the diwil he was drivin' so fast
for. He asked the young fellow his
his name. "Pat Malloy," was the
answer. "Phat do yez worrk at?"
asked the policeman. "I'm the sec
retary of the Knights of Columbus,"
said the culprit. "Well, phat in hell
did yez let thot big car back into yez
thot way for?" demanded the police
man. Jimmie Swinnerton, the artist-cartoonist,
says Uncle Bert White's wife
has her hands full nowadays. She has
to keep track of Uncle Bert's false
teeth and his specs. When he loses
one he can't see to cat and when he
loses the other he can't eat anyway,
and if Mrs. White didn't keep a close
watch he'd starve to death.
Sam Diamond says he was board
ing with a private family. The head
of the house kicked in the bathroom
aitd discovered his wife dead in the
bath-tub. He rushed to the head of
the stairs and called down to the hir
ed girl: ,
"Cook only two eggs for breakfast
dis morning, Mary!"
The spectators were greatly intrig
ued at Hotevilla, where the Hopi In
dian snake dance was held this year,
watching the mothers get their kids
ready for company. Most of the cer
emony consisted in searchingtareful
ly in the hair of the youngsters,
where tilings seemed frequently to be
found. Whatever these things were,
the mothers ate them Which sug
gested to Lou Kelly the thought that
if they'd only use scientific methods
and grow them bigger it would solve
the Hop! food problem. They could
eat the Hopis just as they do now,
an' the Hopis could cat them, just as
they do now. Tom McCullough said
ho didn't think the plan would work
out, because if the game got as big
as that prob'ly they'd include them
in the game laws and only have open
season a month or so in the year.
Took Jim Rupo up to see Lowell
Observatory the other night. Earl
Sliphcr was pointing the big telc
scipe. Jim looked out in the direc
tion the telescope was pointing and
just then a star fell.
"My Gawd, that feller sure is a
crack shotl" Jim exclaimed.
Carl Mayhew says the meanest man
he ever knew, when asked by his
stenographer for a salary increase,
told her she spent too much for liv
ing expenses and if she'd lick the en
velopes instead of wetting them with
a spongo she'd get along with one
less meal a day.
Milt Powers emphasized a point the
other day by telling a story which
his hearers laughed so hard over they
forgot the point Milt was trying to
make. A man driving a Ford ran
around a corner and into a big fine

After the preacher tells 'em they're

broken over his head trying to find

Jimmie told the Rotarians last week
about his travels with the special cars
of Roosevelt and Bryan, wnile they
were campaigning for the presidency.
Teddy had an old fellow who always
appeared in the crowd when he spoke
at the railroad stations, and Teddy
would reach over and exclaim, "Why,
here's my old friend, Jim Jones!"
Then the old fellow would beat it to
the next town before the candidate's1
Bryan dissipated on apple pie and
milk. A whole pie and a gallon of
milk was lunch for hirn, a dozen or so
times a day. When Jimmy joined the
press crowd on his private campaign
car, seven different newspaper cor
respondents in turn introduced him to
Bryan during tho first hour. Each
time Bryan, his eyes bleary with milk,
would shake Jimmy's hand and tell
him he was glad to meet him. Then
Adlai Stevenson, the decrepit old can
didate for vice-president, grabbed
Jimmy and lugged him forward and
introduced him to Bryan. The latter
looked up through the film of milk
and asked: "Haven't I met you some
time before?" "Yes, I've been intro
duced to you seven times during the
la.st hour," said Jimmie.
Candidates for office have an aw
ful lot to go through. Here the other
day Walter Durham was telling Judge
Jones, candidate for re-election, Shor
ty Prather and myself, about a fel
low who used to be here who had
both arms cut off at the shoulder,
but who, with his toes, tied his own
necktie, made wooden boxes, played
cards, threw knives at a wall against
which stood another man, sticking
them in the wall all around him so
close he couldn't get away, and shot
matches out of the teeth of neonle.
Judges Jones took it all in politely,
exclaiming at the marvelous dexterity
of the cripple, but me'n Shorty, we
just? laffed an' told Walter he was
sure1 some dcxt'rous hisownself.

J. B. Ormond says the most deft
use of the English language he ever
ran across was handed out by a dar
key on a Mississippi stieet car who
asked the conductor to "Please, sah,
procrastinate me at de nex' street"
The puzzled conductor finally got the
passenger to explain that what he
meant was that ne wanted to be put
on at tne next street, procrastinate
meaning put off.

By P. E. WARNER
Why is it that the Scout movement
has spread so rapidly, that so many
men are willing freely to give their
time and money to the work, and that
it is being recognized by our leading
educational institutions? Not simply
because it gives the boys a good time,
but because of something far more
important. It is because the boys
have a good time and scouting be
lieves that an abundance of whole
some fun is one of the divine prerog
atives of boyhood. But the Boy Scout
movement would be waning instead of
growing, if it existed solely for the
sake of a good time. The Scout move
ment has met with its widespread
success because it is meeting a real
need in the boy life of our land. It
helps to teach the boys resourceful
ness and self-control, and gives them
the ability to care for themselves in
the exigencies of life; it develops mor
ality and religion and patriotism, and
all of the great qualities which are
essential to the highest type of manhood.
WANT STATE GAME
(Continued from Page One.)
Ten thousand handbills be gotten
out, sent broadcast over the state and
then followed up by circular letters
asking all sportsmen to get behind
the game preservation movement. A
series of articles will be gotten up by
sportsmen familiar with our condi
tions and run in The Coconino Sun,
such conies to be marked and sent
out Naturally such broadcasting will
arouse tre best in a sportsman and it
is hoped that associations will be
started up over the state and that we
will soon be on a basis of 15 years
ago relative to amount of game.
Motion carried that the chair ap
point a publicity committee of three
to look after the above publicity pro

ridge and Willis Brown were selected.
