Word comes from Los Angeles that
a contest was held recently in that

the greatest event of its kind ever
h.id. Twenty-four motor trucks of
various makes and classes were pit
ted against each other in a strenu
ous run of over 200 miles against the
heaviest kinds of odds.
In laying out a route fov this test,
a committee appointed by the -Motor
Truck Dealers' association of Cali
fornia selected the worst roads to be
found in that section, to make the af
fair a real test of endurance. Some
of the. roads were in such condition
that the touring- car in which the-
committee traveled found the great-
j est difficulty in making their way.
Rough dirt roads with deep . vuts.
stretches of deep sand, where the
wheels slid and foundered almost
helplessly, steep hill climbs, slippery
oiled reads and in fact every kind of
obstacle was arranged for, that could
make the aftair a real test of tires
ard mechanism.
Starting at Los Angeles, they bore
southeast to Riverside; then north
through Redlands and San Re'-nar-dino
and then westward again to Dos
The best score was chalked up in
favor of a 1500-pound Menominee
truck. In the two days of travel
they consumed about sixteen gallons
ot gasoline, one quart of oil and one
quart of water. They made the last
ninety-one miles in four hours and
twenty-eight minutes. The driver

Gives Good News About Sporting
E. J. Orth, who represents the A. G.
Spaulding Sporting Goods House on the
Pacific coast and the southwest, is a
visitor in Phoenix this week for the
purpose of looking into the local pros
pects for outfitting baseball and foot
ball teams during the coming season.
Mr. Orth has been visiting Phoenix for
the past three years and yesterday ex
pressed himself as delighted over the
improvement in the city and its general
business-like appearance. He said
Phoenix struck him as being the bus
iest place he had struck for some time,
and that nobody had talked hard times
to him since he had been in town.
"The prospects for good American
football this year on the Pacific coast
are exceedingly bright," said Mr. Orth.
The University of Southern California
has broken away from the Rugby game
and will take up the American football,
which will add a great deal to the ef
fectiveness of the schedule out there.
The prep schools all have football
teams and there are some good ones on
the coast, like the Long Reach high,
the Pasadena high, Santa Ana and the
Army and Navy Academy at San Diego.
Baseball this winter looks exceed
ingly good, as the Imperial Valley
league will have four teams of eastern
players. There will be teams at Kl
Centro, Calexico. Rrawley and Im
perial. Winter baseball is exceedingly
popular in that section, and each year
numbers of the stars in 'he big circus
come down to the southwest to .show
how fine they are.

White Grubs Likely to Cause Untold
Losses in Certain States in 1915
The destructive May beetles, or so
called June bugs, as was previously
predicted by the department, were ex
tremely abiindanj the past spring in
northeastern Iowa, southern Wiscon
sin, and northern Illinois, parts of Min
nesota, the southern part of Michigan,
and northern Ohio; also in northeastern
Pennsylvania, southeawern Xew York
parts of Connecticut and New Jersey
This is Indicative of a great abund
ance of white grubs in 1915, and judg
ing from the greater abundance of
beetles in most of these sections this
spring Jhan three years ago, the grub
injury will be even greater than in
1912, when it caused many millions of
dollars' damage. It is of greatest im
portance, the department's specialists
say. that farmers properly handle their
fields this fall and next spring to pre
vent a repetition of the. enormous loss
es occasioned in 1912. Injury can be
reduced to a minimum by adopting the
following practices:
In the sections above mentioned the !
important economic specie.s have a 1
three-year life cycle; that is, beetles
appearing in the spring of 1914 de- j
posit eggs which hatch about a month
after being laid. The young grubs feed
on roots and decaying matter, but sel- j
dom do damage during their first year. ;
However, the following year (1915) in j
the case of the destructive brood un
der discussion) they are larger and
feed almost entirely on living roots,
preferably corn, timothy potatoes,
strawberries, etc. causing great loss 1
when abundant. The following spring
(1916) they feed more or lens, but by
June 1 or shortly thereafter they- make
earthen cells, become semidormant.
and in a fortnight, or longer change To
brown pupae, and a month later to
adult beetles, in which condition they
remain in the soil until the next spring
The beetles lay their eggs in land
covered with vegetation at the time of
their flights 1 May and June), conse
quently land in small grain, timothy.
nd such crops which cover the ground,
as well as land overgrown with weeds
at that time, are most likely to be in
fested the following year. It is also
noticeable that ground nearest timber
will be heaviest infested, other condi
tions being equal, since the parent
beetles feed on tree foliage and do not
fly great distances if they can find
suitable places to lay their eggs near
Methods of Preventing the Pest
Fields likely to be infested with
grubs should be thoroughly plowed be
tween September 15 and October 10.
The date of r4pwing will depend on
latitude and tn weather conditions,
for the grubs go down as cold weather
approaches and it is desirable to plow
the fields just before they go down
when possible. If the grubs are abun
dant, hogs should be allowed to run in
the field whoever this can be done;
hickens and turkeys are also valuable
aids if allowed the run of newlv-
plowed ground. If it is impracticable
to make use of hogs to rid the infested
fields of grues, a deep and thorough
disking should follow the plowing, and
in 1915 only crops least susceptible to
injury, .such as small grains, buckwheat.
clover, vetch etc., should be planted,
and bv no means .should susceptible
crops, such as corn, timothy, and pota
toes he planted. While fall plowing
should be practiced and is of great
value Cor destroying grubs, neverthe
less it can not be depended upon sole
ly to eradicate grubs. Cornfields which
were kept cultivated and free from an
indergrowth of weeds in May and
June of 1914 may, with reasonable
safety, be planted to corn or potatoes
in J915, although it is advisable to in
spect the field first for grubs. While
t is not ordinarily advisable to follow
corn after corn, nevertheless it is im
portant at this time, in those sections

It is our aim to give $20.00 values for $12.50 and we want
everyone to inspect our line and then compare them with
the high priced suits they have bought in the past and
what they see in the future. We are exclusive clothiers,
devoting our entire attention to men's wearables and
consequently can always give them the best values for
the least money. From time to time for the benefit of
the man who has not tried us out yet and who might be
a little skeptical about our values we wish to state that
we will publish the various facts when we can underbid
