WILLIAMS, COCONINO COUNTY, ARIZONA , FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1922. NO- 33. Volume 30 BASE BALL " Several weeks since an agree ment was made between the managers of the Williams and Holbrook teams which provid ed that the former club should go to Holbrook on Sunday, July 11th, and play the club of that town The agreement provided that the Williams club should receive the sum of one hundred dollars for ex penses, and that a return game at a later date would be play ed in Williams by these teams, and for which the Holbrook club should receive a like sum for its expenses. Sometime about the 8th of July it was discovered that one hundred dollars would not defray the actual ex penses of the club to Holbrook. whereupon the Holbrook club was notified that the agreement would be cancelled. As a con sequence the Williams club re mained idle last Sunday. This unfortunate affair is deeply regretted by the people of Williams who take an inter est in baseball, and it is felt by them that, in view of a plain agreement with Holbrook, the Williams club should have gone to Holbrook regardless of the extra expense that would have been involved. In the end -nothing would have been lost by either team, since the gate receipts would have amply re paid both teams for the addit ional expense incurred. We understand the people of Holbrook fully expected our boys to play there last Sunday, and that bills announcing the fact were widely distributed. Their failure to do so disap pointed what was expected to be one of the largest crowds ever assembled on Holbrook's grounds, and a very just fiable disgust overspreads the community. We very deeply regret that this is true; and we respectful ly suggest that if there is any means in its power whereby rectification of this unf ortur.ate affair can be made by the Wil liams Base Ball Club, steps should be immediately taken to do so. Kingman plays' here next Sunday, and a good game may be expected. They have been greatly strengthened of late and have been playing good ball. Flagstaff's "Same club of two years ago" played the Leupp Indians last Sundty. Ariz. Stock and Wool Growers Name Joint Directorate. . Prescott, July 7. What is characterized by stockmen as tnemost important step in years to consolidate the efforts of Arizona wool and cattle growers for improvement of the livestock industry in the state, was taken today when the Ari zona Wool Growers' and Cattle Growers' associations in annual convention here adopted joint resolutions providing for com mittees of five members from each association to be known as the board of directors of the two associations. This board will have full authority upon questions of mutal interest to both associations "to the end that through co-operation prob lems of both associations mav be solved," says the resolution in part.

The cattle growers began or ganization of a bureau of cattle statistics and appointed a com mittee to draft a new constitu tion and by-laws. One Pound Cans Padlock Baking Powders 15c. at KIRBY'S. Adv. NOGALES SWEPT BY ! HEAVY FLOOD j Nogales, July 8. Thirty business houses were flooded, several Mexican dwellings were floated away and three bridges were washed out by a flood which swept through the bor der cities of Nogales, Arizona, and Nogales, Sonora, late to day. The flood waters came down an arroyo which leads into the two cities from the northern part of Sonora. Water in the streets in many places was four feet deep. A Mexican woman is report ed to have been killed when she fell while fleeing from the flood waters. -The arroyo which usually is a dry wash, carried the greatest volume of water for one hour after ,, the flood reached here than it has contained in more than a dozen years. Heavy rains caused the arro yo to become a raging torrent which quickly washed out three bridges in Nogales, Ariz., and flooded the ground floors and basements of business houses in the Grand avenue district here. " A number of.automo bilists were forced to abandon their cars in the streets.

CURETON MAKES ADDRESS AT CONVENTION Mrs. T. H. Cureton, president of the Arizona State Federation of r Women's clubs who went east to attend the biennial con vention of women's clubs, . is still at Chautauqua, enjoying the cool lake breezes and revel ing in the beauties which abound around this celebrated spot. , So impressed was she with the' gathering of women from the various states and the methods of work employed by them that she has-enrolled in the Chautauqua Woman's Club and is now taking a ten lesson course in club methods and par liamentary law. Mrs. Pennybacker, past pres ident of the General Federation of Women's Clubs and well known throughout the United States as a club woman is presi dent xf the Chautauqua orga nization. In announcing Mrs. Curetons affiiliation with the club, Mrs. Pennybacker paid her a pretty compliment by saying '.'there has been a new star added to the firmament, and that . a presidential star". Mrs. Cureton has the honor of being the first member from Arizona to , associate herself with the eastern club. An impromptu talk on tuber culosis in Arizona was made by Mrs. Cureton in response to a request from Mrs. Pennybacker for a speech on some live prob lem of the state. It made a tremendous impression on her hearers, and she was accosted many times after the meeting closed and plied with questions regarding the work by mem bers of the club who come from every state in the Union. In making the talk before this gathering of women Mrs. Cures ton was therefore giving nation wide publicity to Arizona con ditions. The address follows : "When Mrs. Pennybacker asked me to speak on some live problem in Arizona I thought of many problems the Indian, the Mexican, tuberculosis and minor questions within our bor ders. I decided to speak on the problem of tuberculosis be cause it contains an appeal to all present here this afternoon. "It is true that Arizona has a wonderful healthgiving cli mate which is advertised far and near. This fact brings thousands of tuberculars to our state every year who have not adequate means to sustain them while regaining their health. "Phoenix has one tubercular patient for every 58 of its popu lation and the residents of this city pay at the Kate o f$1.75 per capita a year to care of these migratory indigents. Besides this the service of nurses, doc tors and hospitals is given free to those who cannot pay and Continued. on page 5. E. H.

San Francisco, July 7. An unusual demonstration in the ocean off Point Sur below Mon terey, was a battle between a whale and a swordfish. It was reported today by Frank Mc Donald, custodian of the cus toms house here. , "I first saw the? battle," he said, "when the leviathan churned up a field of foam which looked like a white is land in the sea. Then the big fellow spouted and leaped. Suddenly, as though coming up for a solar plexus blow, the swordfish pierced the air. Af ter a battle of more than an hour and a half, the swordfish i was victorious." J. S. HINTON ASST. MANAGER AT SAGINAW Mr. J. S. Hinton, formerly of Jackson, Miss., has accepted a position-as .Asst. Manager of the Saginaw & Manistee Lum ber Company. Mr. Hinton ; was formerly associate- -with Manager Wilder while Mr. Wilder was located at Jackson, and welcomed the opportunity to work with him again at this place. Mr. J. J. Scanlon retains the position of Chief Clerk, as form erly and Mr. Cowbrough as As sistant Sales Manager. Mr. Wilder is well pleased with the work now being done by the mill. He has the mill force lined up in a well orga nized and efficient body, of workmen who are turning out the work steadily and careful ly. " It is the present expecta tion of the management to keep the mill running steadily right along with a full crew both at the camps and at the mill. Asked how the lumber mar ket looked, Mr. Wilder'replied that the market until very re cently had been strengthening steadily. During the last few weeks there has been a decided drop all along the liner on' lum ber but this he considers only a temporary drop due mainly to the railroad strike. He hopes that a settlement of the rail troubles can be made soon and that a lrop in freight rates will accompany the settlement. High freight rates are - the greatest obstruction that is pre venting the return of the lum ber business to a normal basis in the opinion of Mr. Wilder. Danger of Flooding - , Hog Market. " x" ' Tucson- July- ?. 14. Farmers throughout the state are mak--. ing preparation to stock their; farms with hogs to consume the surplus grain' crop and to' glean the stubble fields. It is not difficult to foretell how the hog market will be af- f ected in November and De cember. Judging from pres ent indications and past exper iences, there will be another flood at the same correspond I ing. time this wintea. The' lo- ! fol marlrsto h(nm( olnfPfT prices tumble and feeders com plain that they have lost money. What has happened in the past? During the grain har vest when feed is in abundance, farmers have acquired all available hogs for feeding. Two or three months later every feeder has hogs for sale, the local market is flooded, and prices have fallen. After two or three months the smoke has cleared, prices are back to nor mal, the hogs are all gone, buy ers' are shipping in stock from the states, and the history of the hog market is 'again re peated. The hog man who makes money out of hogs is the man who has hogs to -sell when prices are high, whose' farm 'is never- overstocked, nor yet en tirely depleted of its supply.
