TIE GAME LOST TO WINSLOW
First Basketball Game on Home Court
Close bat Visitors set Break and
Final two Points.
Some have said that the girls game
of basket ball is slower than the game
played by the boys but this could not
be true of the game between the
AVinslow and Williams girls played
on the Williams court last Friday
evening.
Williams led out in the first few
minutes but the visitors soon found
their stride and at the end of the fif
teen minute half the score book
(showed visitors 6 locals 4.
In the second half it was "1811
make this one, you take that one'
until at the end of the playing time
the count was ten to ten. Accord
ing to the girls'rules the game con
tinued until either team makes a
total of two additional points. For
four minutes long, tense, anxious
minutes the ball was worked from
one end of the court to the other only
to miss the hoop when it rose and
finally Proctor for the visitors edged
one through and it was all over.
t The next game at home will be with
the Normal boys January 19. -

PLENTY OF RAIN
.Williams and vicinity have exper
ienced nearly two weeks of cloudy
weather with only an occasional bit of
sunshine. From all these clouds but
a comparatively small amount of rain
has fallen, but that rain falling on the
snow of last month has 'made plenty
'of water for stock and has helped the
range at lower levels. The rain
melted the snow except on the pro
tected side of the mountains. .
The total rainfall so far this month
is 1.18 inches. This fell as follows:
on the 13th, .70 inches and on the.
14th, .48.
More Money for Bean's. .
Oxnard, Calif. Bean grower mem
bers of the California Bean Growers'
Association will receive checks, prob
ably before Christmas, representing
an additional cent on their beans. Up
to this time they have been paid 4
cents a pound on net recleaned basis.
Beans are now selling at $8.50 and
better and the prospects are good for
even higher prices, after the first of
the year. It now appears quite cer
tain that members will receive at
least 7 cents a pound. '

SPEAKERS OF NATIONAL
PROMINENCE AT CONGRESS
Speakers of national prominence
share honors with leading men in in
dustrial and civic affairs of Arizona
on the advance program for the first
annual convention of the Arizona In
dustrial Congress, to be held in Phoe
nix next Monday and Tuesday.
Advance programs for the conven
tion have just been received. Seven
sessions are listed for the two days,
in addition to a dinner. The ad
dresses scheduled indicate the meet
ing will be the greatest public event
of the kind ever held in the state,
surpassing even the State Industrial
Conference of a year ago at which the
Industrial Congress was formed.
, Agriculture and livestock, two in
dustries which the Industrial Congress
has been making special efforts to
stablize are particularly well, repre
sented on the program. James R,
Howard, president of the American
Farm Bureau Federation, the greatest
organization of farmers the world has
ever seen, will be the principal speak-,
er on' agriculture, while Fred H. Bix
by, president of the American Live
stock Association, will give the main
address on livestock. On the pro
gram also will appear W. A. Schoen
f eld, director of marketing research
for thcUnited States Department of
Agriculture, who will come as a
special representative of Secretary of
Agriculture Henry C. Wallace.
The Comforts of Security.
One of the greatest causes for
thankfulness experienced by the citi
zen, and which many never give a
thought, is peace and security.
Our country is free from war and
social disorders, and a few policemen
firemen and traffic men keep order
and protection in each community.
Our banking system is so perfect
ly adjusted that no one worries about
their deposits or their little savings
or about almost any investment.
The citizen sleeping peacefully in
his bed at home gets a great hunk of
enjoyment knowing that he has fire
protection and insurance.
In all towns and cities are equip
ments that are constantly being im
proved for his benefit and if fire
breaks out it is usually stopped.
On top of this he knows that state
fire- insurance commissioners are
bending every energy to see that in
surance companies are kept sound.
The greatest asset of the average
citizen is that he works and sleeps
with a great . umbrella of security
spread over him by the government
co-operating with private industries
which seek to protect his every inter
est. ; - - ,
The various rooms at the Williams
School are preparing Christmas ex

given at the end of next week and
parents are urged to attend them.
The children are entering into their
parts with zeal and are sure to do
credit to themselves and their teach
ers. Pottery Manufacturers Get Big; Tariff
Workers Receive Old Pay.
Workers . in pottery plants whose
owners are members of the United
States Potters' ..Association have re
turned to their employment after hav
ing been on strike for two months in
ah unsuccessful effort to obtain an in
crease of 7 per cent in their wages.
They go back to work at .the former
scale. "
One of the arguments presented by
the proponents of the heavy duties im
posed by the Fordney-McCumber
profiteers' ,tariff act on imports of
pottery was that these high tolls
would "protect" American workers
from competition with Czecho-Sloa-vkian
and German operatives who re
ceive only a small fraction of ' the
average daily wage paid by manufac
turing potters in the United States.
The manufacturers got the rates
they wanted on more than 100 items
in the schedule covering. the earths
and earthenware, and prices to the
consumer have already begun to re
flect the increases in the tariff. The
workers not only have not benefited
by this "protection" to their employ
ers but are poorer by the loss of two
months' pay as a consequence of their
strike.

J ARIZONA CATTLEMEN FIND
VERY UNSETTLED MARKET
Cattlemen of Arizona are exper
iencing the most unsettled market
conditions in years, according to a
.bulletin just issued by the Arizona
Cattle Growers' Association, which
declares chaotic conditions in the Los
Angeles , stock yards have created
great uncertainly, both of markets
and prices.
The bulletin declares that since the
opening of the union stockyards at
Los Angeles November 1st large num
bers of cattle from the Northwest and
Rocky Mountain district and from
Texas have moved to Los Angeles
which formerly went to eastern mar
kets. These cattle are thrown on
the open market, and many have been
sold at a sacrifice, since they cannot
be moved. The opening of the
stockyards also has kept buyers off
the ranges to a great extent. In ad
dition to having to sell his stock in
direct competition with that from
other statesv the Arizona cattleman
runs he risk of having to feed his
cattle in the yards for days and take
loss from shrinkage, until he can' find
a buyer.
The association believes that cattle
men are loath to give up the present
fair system of selling their herds at
the ranches, under which cattle are
taken as they are needed, and not
dumped on the market because the
growers has no other outlet.
The Arizona Livestock report for
November issued by the U. S. Bureau
of Agricultural Economics and co
operating agencies states it is prob
r.ble fall sales will reach 130,000, of
which 100,000 will be shipped outside
the state, mostly to California.
The fall movement of sheep and
lambes to market is estimated at
260,000 head. Sheep men are great
ly encouraged by their successful
.season. - ""-" A - .- " " ' "

Cattlemen Receive Thousands -More
By Marketing Co-operatively.
Tucson, Dec. 15 Buyers in Santa
Cruz County offered a cattleman, Mr.
H., $32.00 per head for his three-
year-olds and $25 for his twos. Hav
ing only a few threes, he sold them,
but decided to stick with his Associa
tion and sell his twos with theirs.
His neighbor, Mr. X., had a good
bunch of threes and was offered $33.
00 for his threes, $25 for his twos,
and $20 for his yearlings. Mr. X re
fused to sell by the head- and insisted
that he and his associates would sell
only by weight.
A price was finally agreed upon and
some twelve- hundred head were sold,
over the scales. The following fig
ures were reported. Mr. H. received
for his twos $37 per head and over
$24 per head for his yearlings. Mr.
X. received a few cents less than $50
per head for his three-year-olds, and
about the above mentioned prices on,
twos and yearlings. Thus, by sell
ing over the scales, he received nearly
$17 per head more for his three
than his first offer, while Mr. H. re
ceived $12 more per head for his twos
and $4 more for his yearlings. '
Returns on the entire twelve hund
red head were not always like the
above, but the average came pretty
near those figures.
Cooperative selling among those
concerned in this deal has reiceived
an impetus which will make it easy
for the officers of the Association and
the County Agent to extend their sell
ing operations among the neighbor
ing cattlemen.

more failures in eleven months than
