I 'Teuton, m i WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA Volume 29 FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 1921. NO. 36. HUP i SCOUTS HAVE GREAT TIME AT OLD SWIMMIN HOLE July 25th at one o'clock a bunch of happy, expectant boy scouts with Prof. Cureton and Charles Sullivant piled in to Mr. Hoffmeyer's truck and started out for the "old swim min' hole." This particular "swimmin' hole, 17 miles front hece, is situated at the head o Sycamore Canyon about a half mile this side of Poison Springs. It has the reputation of being the best swimming hole in Ari " zona, being some 15 feet deep and having high bluffs on each side. The truck could take them no farther than the James ranch as it had rained heavily. However they succeeded in commandeering a wagon from .Mr. James and traveled the last 5 miles over roads heavy -with mud and through swollen washes. When they reached camp at about six in the even ing, they .found the six boys whom Mr. Barnes and Dr. Mel ick had taken out in the morn ing waiting for them. To .-uty that the trip wis n "swimmin" success would be putting it mildly as Prof. Cure ton says that all the boys could swim well and 'many of them excellently. They went in .swimming twice every day. A side from the main attractions, "swimmin" and "eatin," the boys . had a number of chip munk races. Someone would spy a chipmunk" and off they would alf race ' through the woods till someone ran him up a tree. When he jumped, the lucky fellow catching him was the winner. They would then set him free, the excited chip munk no doubt wondering what all the hullabaioo was" about but thankful for his skin. As for the rations: breakfast started with cream of wheat, milk and sugar. After the boys had eaten this, each boy pro duced his little frying pan, built his own fire and proceed , ed to fry a piece of bacon. When this was done, each one fried an egg in the bacon grease and some pancakes made from Aunt Jemima's flour. . Ail the boys bepame expert at flapping the cakes land quite a number have been busy this week shew ing their astonished mothers just how the trick is turned. At noon the ravenous scouts devoured a large pot of. beans, mulligan stew, bread, butter and an allowance of 10 prunes apiece. In the evening each boy again cooked his own bac on and egg and ate more beans and prunes. Each boy also cleaned his own utensils. Squir rel mulligan was one of the popular numbers on the bill of fare, The second night was one -which the boys will not soon forget.' It poured and poured. The majority of the boys slept right .out in the open. Prof. Cureton commanded them to stay right in bed till they be gan to feel cold. Then they were ordered to put on all their wet clothes and keep moving "before a big log fire till they -were dry. They were dry in SO minutes and not one of them look cold. Mr. Harry Gray's boys, Stanley and Harry Junior spent one night at the camp and joined in the sports during sev eral days. On Saturday morning the "bunch returned to Williams happy and begging to stay an other week. Terrific appetit es and sound sleeping are 'the most noticeable results of the week's stay at the "old swim min hole." Prof, and Mrs. T. H. Cure ton had as dinner guests Wed nesday night, Judge and Mrs. J. M. Holub, of Phoenix. Carmen Garicia and Simeon Olallo were brought before Pol ice Judge Jerrie Lee Monday iiiviuiug, cxiargea witn mis- demeanor. Both were fined 'fifteen dollars or fifteen days and both paid the fine. RED LAKE ITEMS Miss Virginia Lockett and Miss Doyle of Flagstaff were among the large crowd which attended the picnic Friday. The basket was delicious with numerous good things from the "cuisines" of Red Lake's ex cellent house-wives. But the rain ran us indoors where a part of the school program was held. The drill "Just like a Gypsy" by the Spring Valley pupils was very charming. Af terthe rain there were races and games between the differ ent schools and older men and women. Mrs. Walter Thomasson won the women's race and Mr. Roy Nagiller won the men's race while Mrs. Barnes carried a way the blue ribbon for Red Lake in the "School marm's" race between Miss Lockett, Mrs. Sleeth and herself. In the evening after supper the school program was finish ed. Mr; Harry Boulin present ed the diplomas to the Eighth Grade graduates, giving them excellent advice which we hope they -will long remember and heed. Then Mrs. Currens pre sented the beautiful bouquets of roses and asters, it being impossible to obtain pansies. After the program many people from Williams helped to "trip the light fantastic" to the music rendered by Messrs. Bascom and Thomasson who have a lot of new music includ ing jazz. The graduating class v were : Bernice Runyan, Valedictorian Lucile Carpenter, Dalton Tus tin, Salutatorian, Gerald Boul in.

It will be done by volunteer labor; the ladies will have the usual good things to eat and pleasant smiles for everyone. Don't miss this, boys! Dana Van Alstine, of Iowa, who is visiting the McLean's and haying the boys teach him a few wild and woolly ways, is becoming quite an expert "steer rider."" A great many of our farmers, who as a rule are good judges of other things, have been mis led in regard to "Binder Twine." This commodity that is being offered at a low price is uneven, knotty not sufficient yardage and the trouble you will have by its breaking will not save you any money; in stead you will be the loser. See Babbitt-Poison Co. about a strictly high grade "Binder Twine." Adv. Miss Maja Huss and Mr. Tom Chapman were married June 3 in Flagstaff, Rev. Luth er Moore officiating.

RAINS CONTINUE AND CROPS IMPROVE Williams and vicinity have been visited by additional heayy rains this week. In many localities dams have been filled . and everywhere range is good and crops are much improved. A heavy rain fell at Wil liams Sunday morning. Gut ters were filled to overflowing and the fields received a thoro drenching. The Santa Fe dam received an inflow from this rain which raised its water lev el fully five feet. A similarly heavy rainfall was reported for the same morning from Red Lake, Main and parts of Gar land Prairie. It was first hoped that this same storm would add materially to the supply of wa ter in the city reservoir, but in vestigation proved that neither the city nor the Saginaw dams was materially affected by the storm. Another heavy rain fell to day "but at the time of going to press it had not been learned what effect it had upon any of the reservoirs. Indications point to a continuance of the rainy season.

The I.O.O.F. hall was a riot of the national colors, red, white and blue. Myriads of balloons in red white and blue floated from the ceiling and each one of these balloons was number ed. After the refreshments which were served at 11 o'clock these balloons were thrown out into the crowd. Eloise Sulli vant who caught the one with the lucky number received S3. Albert Hudson caught the one purple balloon and received a cake with the legend Co. B, 158th Infantry in red white and blue icing. The stage was also decorated with balloons while over 200 flags added their glory to the scene. One enormous flag at the back of v the stage reigned in majesty over its smaller satellites. Bunting and sweet smelling pine branches were draped a cross the front of the stage. There were also two tents at the .corners of the stage with two stacks of rifles in front of them. In the center of the stage in the place of honor were the company's flag and the national flag crossed. The crowd was enormous and with the lovely gowns of the ladies presented a scene of animation and gayety that Wil liams will long remember. Mr. T. J. Kelly, an ex pro fessional .. who is recuperating from being gassed" during the war and is now a government student at Tuscon and Flag staff gave three vaudeville numbers. His Irish wit and humor won the hearty plaud its of the crowd who clamored for more. A guartette com posed of Kelly, McGibbony, of Flagstaff, Cole and J Campbell sang three numbers which were enthusiastically enjoyed. Rob erta, our Hawaiian pitcher al so" sang some delightful solos. The final touch to a most de lightful evening was added by the special music supplied by Barnes Orchestra. Already all those fortunate to attend the dance are looking forwafd with pleasant antici pation to a recurrence of the event next year.- All vote the boys most royal hosts as well as superb entertainers and true artists at decorating.
