COLORADOANS SET |
TO DEFEND FARMS
Pioneers Who Bought Land
50 Years Ago to Fight
U. S. Ouster.
By the Associated Press.
DENVER, October 15.—Pioneer Colo
radoans prepared today to defend their
farms against an influx of homestead
ers who, the Federal Government has
declared, are entitled to 20,000 acres of
the richest soil in the West.
The Government ruling sets forth
that the Union Pacific Railroad, through
one of its subsidiaries, was given 20,000
acres too much under the land grant
act of 1867. The land Is, therefore, held
to be open to settlement.
Although the order was issued in
June, it was not made public here until
late yesterday, when William R. Eaton
and Charles B. Timberlake, Represent
atives in Congress, began a hurried ef
fort to have it rescinded.
Ready to Use Force.
More than 200 pioneer families bought
the land from the railroad and improved
and farmed it for more than 50 years.
Most of the disputed soil lies in Weld
County, the center of Colorado's sugar
beet industry.
Under the Interior Department’s rul
ing. the farmers who have occupied the
land for half a century are barred from
filing because first rights go to ex
service men. Local officials said the
department did not publish its action
in newspapers as is the custom.
Publication of an account of the ac
tion bv Colorado papers brought an im
mediate response from farmers, who
declared they would not surrender their
lands to ' land-jumpers” and would de
fend their property with force if
necessary.
The Denver Land Office reported some
claims have been filed, and more per
sons are seeking legal description of
homestead lands daily. Officials said
they expected a rush to the former rail
road holdings.
Carry Plea to Washington.
Attorneys said that they believed pres
ent owners eventually will secure title
to their property if the cases go to
court, but that they will have difficulty
in legally removing homesteaders in the
meantime.
Representative Eaton today prepared
a request to the Interior Department to
suspend the order at once. Represent
ative Timberlake has left for Washing
ton to seek immediate relief for the
' pioneers.

commanders of the Army and Navy,
leaders of national patriotic organiza
tions and members of the Senate and
House will take active parts in the pro
grams of the four days.
A number of brilliant dinners and
other functions in honor of the marshal
of France and other notables will be
given by the State Department, the
Yorktown Commission, the Common

organizations, beginning tomorrow with
a banquet by the State Department and
the commission in hdnor of Marshal
Petaln and officials of the French em

at a banquet for the marshal and his
staff Saturday at Old Point Comfort,
with Gen. Pershing among the guests of
honor.
Work Late Into Night.
Far Into last night workmen labored
to complete the setting for the cele
bration for which commissions of the
State and Nation have planned for
more than a year. At midnight, ex
cept for policing the grounds, the stage
was declared complete.
After the early morning military ma
neuvers there was to be a rehearsal of
the colonial fair with its Jousting,
plumed helmets, fair ladies and glitter
ing lances, and the pageants depicting
scenes from the histories of the colonies.
The French cruisers steamed into
Old Point Comfort at 8:22 a m. today.
After running up the American flag
beside the French tri-color the ships
fired a salute of 21 guns in honor of
their arrival at the American shore.
Batteries of Fortress Monroe boomed
out a welcoming reply over the sun
lit waters of Hampton Roads.
Without waiting for the French party
to land, Warren D. Robbins, chief of
the Protocol Division of the State De
partment, and Army and Navy aides
assigned to Marshal Petain during his
visit, boarded the Duquesne from a
launch to greet the distinguished vis
itors.
Mrs. Wilson Present.
Gen. Pershing, Ambassador Claudel.

Always on top of his jobl
How does he do it?
I . 1
This man’s commission check
is always bigger than any
other salesman’s on the staff.
He’s a wonder 1 When he breezes
into town after a grueling busi
ness trip—with a bunch of orders
in his pocket for the boss —he’s
always as fit as a fiddle. And
just rarin’ to go off again.
How does he do it —living on
trains —snatching hasty meals
at railway station counters and
small town restaurants? For
ever on the jump.
If you could see him pack his
bag for a trip, you’d know. A
bottle of Nujol always goes in.
Nujol keeps body functions
normal, even under abnormal
reg’ime. Keeps hasty meals and
indifferent food from upsetting
you. Wards off the bad effects of
change of water a»d climate. I
For Nujol not only prevents any
| excess of the body poisons (we
; all have them) from forming,
but also aids in their removal.
Whatever your job is—you need
health and energy to ride it.
Take a tip from this star sales
man and take Nujol regularly.
You’ll be amazed to find how
much more clear-headed and all
round efficient you feel. Keep
up this treatment faithfully for
3 months and you’ll feel like a
million dollars. And you will
have taken the first step toward
getting it.

Isn’t Nujol worth trying? It was

other people it will do you a
world of good.
Be sure you get the genuine.
