Volume 30 WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1922. No. 30. V BILL WILLIAMS IS CAUSE OF WEATHER Philadelphia, May Per sons who have been puzzling their heads over the chill wea ther of the present spring are furnished an explanation by Dr. Milton- Albert Nobles, of this city. - Doctor Nobles is an earth nuake and volcano prophet. He is, besides a prophet most ofl whose prophecies come true. The recent heavy rainfall and floods in the Mississippi River valley were -predicted days before they occured by the doctor, who is a graduate of Syracuse University. As the result of fifty years study of winds and their temperatures he told of an unusual volcanic activity in the vicinity of the Gulf of Mexico, that should produce the floods that later occured. The latest eruption of Vesu vius was proceeded by a state ment from the doctor that such activity should be expected in that quarter of the globe. He also predicted that the time is approaching when such ac tivities will commence over most of Europe and parts of Asia. They will bring, he said, the end of the old, out worn section of the world with in a hundred years at most. The recent earthquake at Tokio did not surprise him in the least. . All this is preliminary to his explanation of the present spring weather and that of re cent dfiys "I think it means old Bill Williams," said the venerable white-haired physician crypti cally, when he was asked about it. "Bill Williams?" he was ask ed. "Yes," he smiled. "Bill is an old volcano on the western border of Arizona. I've stud ied Bill in my travels. That old mountain has not erupted for 300 years, and no one has spotted it as a volcano. But the wind drifts of the past few weeks show me there is some volcanic activity brewing in those parts, at least in Bill's vicinity, and I expect an erup tion any day. "What has that to do with the weather?" he was asked. "Well", he replied, "when there is a center of more than usual heat it draws the air to ward it in a way that is plainly noticeable on the hydrographic charts. These charts show a heated area, due no doubt to impending volcanic activity, in the region of Arizona. This m turn tended to draw the winds back from over the states i in the east That said, he stopped, as though the question was set tled. Fortunately the desig nated spot is not thickly popu lated. Mrs. Evelyn Payne .who sprained her back about a month ago is able to be up and around again. o o o Miss Lillian Silvernail re ceived a telegram Wednesday from her nephew, L. E.

The first case was that of a party who left a fire burning alongside of the road in the tim ber about a mile and a half east of McClellan Dam. Sher iff Campbell secures the credit for picking up this offender. The sentence w.as 30 days in the county jail, the sentence being suspended provided the party would leave this part of the country. The second case was that of a party who left a small camp fire near Parks. The fire was partly covered up but, due to the very heavy wind that dayT it got out. It waj necessary to keep men on this fire for 24 hours before it was completely out. The sentence was a fine of $10.00. The following is the Arizona State Fire Law which is being printed for those who, perhaps, are not familiar with the terms of this law. "Every person who wilfully or negligently sets on fire, or causes to be set on fire, any woods, grasses, or grain, or any lands, is guilty of a misde meanor. , "Any person or persons who shall wilfully and deliberately set fire to any wooded country or forest belonging to this state, or to the United States, within this state, or to any place from j which fire shall be communicat- ed to any such wooded country or forest, or who shall acciden tally set fire to any such wood ed country or forest, or to any place' from which fire shall be communicated to any such wooded country or forest, and shall not extinguish the same, or use every effort to that end, or who" shall build any fire, for lawful purpose or otherwise, in or near such wooded country or forest, and- through careless ness or neglect, shall permit said fire to extend to and burn through such wooded country or forest, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction before a court of competent jurisdiction, shall be punishable by a fine not ex ceeding one thousand 'dollars, or imprisonment not exceeding one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment; Provided, That nothing herein contained shall apply to any person who in good faith shall set a back fire to prevent the extension of j a fire already burning". i Plans Completed for j Flagstaff 's New School. i Plans p.nc KTierifir,aHnra -frv the new high school at Flag- j stan nave just oeen compiet- eci oy v.

Nine Western states and the national park services were rep resented here today at the third annual meeting of the National Park to Park Highway associa tion President Scott Leavitt of Great Falls, Mont, in his annual report urged that the organiz ation be nation wide and said that 273,000 persons visited the four parks on the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains last year, while 91,000 entered the four large parks on the Pacific coast. L. L. Newton of Cody, Wyo., urged the completion of hard surfaced roads connecting all parks and W. B. Lewis, super intendent of the Yosemite Nat ional Park, who represented Stephen T. Mather, director of national parks, pledged the support of the department of interior in carrying forward the association's work. Resolutions providing for the complete nationalization of the national park to park highway association and so throwing the membership rolls open to men all over the country was unanimously adopted. Undeirthe new plan it is pro posed to interest men of nation al reputation . in road matters in the development of tourist traVel with a view tocomplet- ingi a chain of highways over the'Rocky Mountains to the national parks of the Pacific coast. Another resolution provides for closer co-operation with the various travel bureaus all over the; country for the dissemin ation of information concern ing, the conditions of , roads. General WBTGf eely,- Chief Forester of the United States, was in Williams for a short time last Saturday on his way to Grand Canyon. This is the first time the chief forester of the U. S. has paid a visit to Ari zona. He was accompanied by Frank Pooler, of Albuquer que, Forester of District No. 3, which includes Arizona andN. Mexico. Road Work Progressing. Work on the roads about Williams is progressing very satisfactorily, The crews on the Coleman Lake road hope to get the road south of the Santa, Fe Canyon in pas3able shape before the summer rains set in in earnest, so that they may work in the road thru the Canyon while the rains are on. j The road as yet is in pretty j poor shape over most of the j route and does not encourage i travel to the lake.

CAMPBELL SEEKS VOTERS' ENDORSEMENT Sheriff W. A. Campbell has thrown his hat in the ring and will be a' candidate for the re publican renomination for sher iff at the September primaries. Mr. Campbell has been so busy during the fifteen months of his tenure in office that he has no time for electioneering and he does not expect to find time to push his candidacy during the short time remaining be fore the primary election. He has entered the race on the strength of the record he has made for law enforcement and careful and prompt perform ance of his official duties. He hopes for the endorsement of his party at the primaries and the endorsement of all the vot ers at the polls in November. During the time in which W. A. Campbell has held the sheriff's office, he has picked up 35 law breakers who re ceived penitentiary sentences. The fate of these criminals has had the effect of greatly reduc ing the number of burglaries and other crimes in this coun ty until Coconino has won the reputation of being one of the two most law-abiding counties in the state. The sheriff calls attention to the fact that while 35 men have been sent to the pen from Coconino, only four of that number were citizens of the county. The one big aim of the sheriff has been the enforcement of the law. He realizes that the officer who enforces the law impartially must make some enemies, but he believes that the majority of the voters will back up the officer who thus performs his - duty. While speaking on this point he said, "I know that strict law enforcement-is bound to- make some enemies, but I hold my duty to enforce the law above any man's friendship." It is just this quality in the sheriff which has made him so solid with the voters. There is no denying that he has made an enviable record as an officer of the law. Mr. Campbell believes that the people as a whole want the laws strictly and impartially eniorcea. ie thanks the pub lic for the cooperation and sup port which he has received dur ing his term but he would ask one thing more and that is bet ter support for the law in Jury cases. One trait of the sheriff which has had much to do with mak ing his office so successful, is his , ability to pick under offi cers. All of his deputies rank high as officers of the law and each has worked in the same untiring way in which the sheriff has gone about his duties. There is no denying the sheriff's office has won a very enviable reputation during the past fifteen months. It will take a very strong man to defeat Mr. Campbell either at the primaries or at the Novem ber electiin. Woman's Club Meeting. A meeting of the Woman's Club will be held at the home of Mrs. K. W. Williams Friday, June 30, at three o'clock. Ob ject: to pick up the unfinish ed business of the annual meet ing and to consider ways and means of entertaining the Northern Federation of Wom an's Clubs meeting here in Oc tober. All members of the Woman's Club are urged to be present at this important meeting. Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Chambers of Winslow, ;ame up Tuesday for a day's visit with Mr. and Mrs. G. H. McLeese. Mr. Chambers is assistant divisional engineer. o o o Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Vail and Mr. Messimer motored to Lake Mary Wednesday. They camped out under the pines that night and returned to Wil liams the next day. WILLIAMS DEFEATS LEUPP INDIANS IN SUNDAY'S GAME Fresh from their signal tri umphs over Winslow and Flag staff, the Leupp Indians gallop ed out on the Willian - Field last Sunday afternoon raeking to adorn their war-belt - . ith an other scalp. Stolidl they gazed upon the uniformed pale face across the field, as Chief Marcus called for a council of war. "Uh", he said, "me .know most this gang. Strange 'face here, strange face there, but most same old gang. Tough job. But we do it. Look, strange man first sack ; strange .man second sack; strange man short stop; and look, strange fat man right field ! Fat man, huh! Fat man fall down, take nine men pick him up. We send Spencer after them. Spencer don't hit fat man lose ball." Thus solilquized Chief Mar cus before the game. Hi3 .apostrophe to fat men in gen eral was timely, but to one fat man in particular, it it now to the Chief a night-mare. T'or this same fat man in right field came to bat four times, and four times he drove out either a single, a two or a three bag ger with the bases occupied. It was one of the the most interesting games played here this year, despite the one-sided- ness of the score-Keeper's re turns. Williams presented their new pitcher Biggs and there wasn't a momentduring .the game that the Indians were not eating out of his hand. The two runs scored against him were not the result of any let up on Mr. Bigg's part, but were from a very questionable de cision at first, which, had the decision been as many thought. .proper, Biggs would" have had ,a snuc-out to nis creuiu: ; But the bright particular .star of the afternoon was a gen tleman by the name of Dunn, whom you may meet any time you care to over at tne r'anor Barbershop. Mr. Dunn pos sesses the rotundity of an Ar buckle, the ponderosity of an Irvin Cobb, and all the prowess of Babe Ruth rolled into one. Mr. Spencer and Mr. Howard, Ditchers for the Indians may not appreciate either of the two former characteristics, but it is certain that the last one is indelibly impressed 'upon the memories of both of them. The score wras too uneven to give much of a detailed de scription of the game, but at that, there were any number of really brilliant pieces of base ball. With Humphrey on first. Allen on second, "Lightening" Cooke at short, and Harry Sel mon at third, no amateur team in Arizona is capable of pre senting a stronger infield. If brains, hitting, and fielding count in a game of ball, Wil liams ought to win several games more before the snow flies. Two fast double plays were pulled against the In dians by this combination, the very first of which seemed to take the heart out of them. Then when Dick Cole made a phenomenal catch back of short just when a mix-up between himself and Rouby Sullivant seemed inevitable the Indians were about ready to call it a day's work. Over in right Mr. Dunn had very little to do. Consult the box score for his efforts in another direction. - Raymond Rupe, our High School track star, umpired be hind the bat, and Mr. Green, on the v bases. Both did good work. The Indians drove from Leupp here in automobiles. Chief Marcus says "never again". They claim they were completely worn out by the long trip, and are anxious to have another game with us in order to redeem themselves. This is hardly necessary, for all are willing to admit that they are ballplayers though, of course, we would, like to have them with us again. They ape (Continued on page 4)- .
