W of the Southern Utah Federated Com-
I mercial Clubs, met at the public 11-
I brary auditorium in Cedar City at 2
1$ p. m. this afternoon, the following
Commercial Clubs being represented:
K k Milford, Beaver, Minersville, Paro
le wan, Cedar City, Enterprise, Saint
B . George and Hurricane.
I Temporary chairman S. J. Foster of
- f Cedar City presided and Secretary E.
B. Jorgensen of Milford, occupying the
t clerk's chair.
The principal object of this meeting
3 was to consider and pass upon the
A constitution and by-laws of the pro-1
pV posed Federation, which matter wns
referred at the last meeting to a com-
j mittcc consisting of Chairman Foster,
$ Wilford Day and Dr. M. J.-Mncfar-
i lane.
There were present at the meeting,
j. also, Ass't Secretary Smith of tho
, ' Salt Lake Commercial club and W.
Clegg Butts, representing th6 New
. West Magazine of Salt Lake City.
ja Mr. Smith had prepared a skeleton of
E', a constitution or by-laws, nnd Mr.
Ir Faster of the committee appointed
for the purpose had a number of sug-
Hnk gestions reduced to writing, but it
pflR"J . ' appeared that thero wnsnoXflnished,
, draft of the by-laws ready. It was
f therefore moved and carried that a
committee of three, to include Mr.
Poster, be allowed time in which to
perfect the draft, while the remain
ing members remained to consider ob
jects and wnys and means for the ac
complishments of the organization.
The committee was comprised of.
Chairman Foster, Scc'y Smith and Mr.
Leo Pickett of St. George. During
their absence Mr. II. L. Jones was
temporarily called to the chair, and
Delegate C. C. Sloan of Milford and
r- others expressed their views upon the
objects and conduct of the federation.
On their return the committee pre
sented their draft of a set of by-lnws

I The fight inaugurated by one or
jtwo men to lake the County Fair
printing away from Cedar City
when the fair is to be held here,
prompts the following question:
Is it fair to the job plant of a news
paper in a town putting on a fair,
to force that plant to bid on the
printing for the fair?
It is not; and this is why not:
In the lnrger cities, if nowhere else,
can ulways be found some hungry
plant eager to open up new job print
ing territory, nnd glad to spend money
in establishing itself there. It is
pleased to chnrgu the loss on the first
job or two to advertising expense,
knowing that the low introductory
price will establish such a name for
it in the new territory nnd other or
ders will follow in which prices will
not be questioned. This is one readou
why tho proposition of bidding is not
fair. There is another.
This is it: the home town paper
gives the Fnir an amount of free ad
vertising and continuous boosting that
if it were figured in money would a
mount to a surprising sum. Tills be
. gins with the first talk of appointing
n fair committee nnd lasts until the
fun is over nnd the prize money all
spent. It is the sort of advertising
that money will not buy, and convinces
nnd moves readers to action for the
I very reason that it is not paid adver
j tising but interesting news nnd com
ment. This costs the local paper mon
ey. It is the Vnost expensive sort of
filling that goes into the pnges of tho
country paper. But it is gladly gath
ered and printed, ns upbuilding to the
community, nnd for the glory of its
cherished institutions.
No newspaper in making a price on
Fair printing dreams of figuring in
this expense. But on the other hand,
I is it a fair, logical procedure for the
Fair committee to accept all this help
and yet turn its printing over to some
outside concern that cannot nnd will
-noUgivo-tho fairione -ccnt'it -worth-of
like support? Nothing but profiteer
ing on the part of the locnl office
could justify it.
In the case of an office where the
whole force from mnnnger down is
working long, hnrd hours, where no
fancy wnges arc paid, where the man
ager and largest stockholder is living
I on a more economical scale than are
tho men who are larhtin,? him, and hris
I not yet a nickel hidden in bank or
. sock, if thero. is profited ing, who is
doing it? Will Dobson.
"Trade nt home." "Try your home
merchnnt first." These quotations are
very familiar to Record Readers. Now,
here is another: "What's sauce for the
goose is sauce for tho gander." It is
n poor rule that won't work both ways,
and why not npply it to the question'of
A mnn who goes out and deliberate
ly knocks other business institutions
of the town, is not deserving of the
support of the people for his own.
Isn't that right? Keep this in mind,

The Pnrownn Stake Mutual Rally,
held at Parowan Snturday evening,
August 7th, was well attended in spite
of the weather. The two bands, Cedar
nnd Parowan, were in attendance and
each helped in the entertainment of
the gathering. Besides the Cedar band
a large crowd of young people and
those who felt young attended from
Cedar. The program outlined, in the
Record for July 3th was given, the
talk of the evening being by Joseph
E. Richnrds on the subject of tho
"Benefit of Boy Scout nnd Beehive

appetizing ns to bring forth praise
from all who tasted it. An enjoyable

the evening's pleasures. ,

, Throughout State for Beverage,
i Alcohol for Manufacture Being
1 Purchased by Stale, is Charge.
In one hamlet in Southern Utah
7,000 ounces of fruit extracts, con
taining about 50 per cent alcohol, have
I been sold since January 1 and tho al
cohol was sold to the manufacturer bv
,the state. '
Eight-ounce bottles of those ex
tracts which Fred W. Crockett, the
city prosecuting attorney describes as
' the cleverest camouflage ever devised
to defeat prohibition," arc sold retail
at a dollar and a half a bottle and
wholesale at eighty-seven cents a bot
tle. The manufacturers get tho alcohol
from the stato at 10 per cent above
cost and sell the product nt an enor
mous profit. Thousands of these bot
tles are consumed eveiy day, causing
,so much drunkeness that the city
prosecutor has been driven to cry out
in protest ngninst the federal and
state administrations.
Empty bottles of these fruit ex
tracts are found by the scores at re
sorts, in public places, vacant lots and
by the side of the roads, silent but el
oquent witness of the extent to which
the traffic has grown.
In the month of July thero were
115 convictions for drunkenesg. Day
ney is called upon to send to jail men
who are made drunk by the use of
these extracts.
In addition to the fruit extracts, de
natured alcohol is being sold in vast
.quantities. Men and women have
gone blind or hnvc died in Salt Lake
City within the last few months as a
result of consuming this deadly alco
holic concoction ns a beverage. The
other day a man appeared before the
city court as a witness and begged
that his wife be sent to jail because
I she was going blind and crazy from
drinking denatured alcohol.

1 Women of Cedar City Initiate
Campaign for More Sanitary
1 In an effort to get rid of the swarms
of flies that have come with the hot
weather and the recent storms, tho
Civics Betterment departmeent of tho
Home Economics Association has de
cided to pay twenty-five cents a quart
for flies provided they are caught
within the city limits and taken to
the proper authorities. The committee
1 hopes that this action will start a gen
eral campaign which will includo par
ticularly the cleaning out of outhouses
barns nnd corrals.
What can be accomplished by united
effort was proved by the campaign
carried on four yenrs ago, which rid
the town so thoroughly of flies that
for three succeeding seaspns there re
mained n marked decrease in the num
ber of them found in the town.
The necessity for stnmping out this
plague need not be pointed out to the
people who realize how ensy it is for
such diseases ns typhoid and dysen
tery to be carried from victim to vic
tim on the body of tho fly. No house
hold where flies nre found can be con
sidered sanitary yet it is impossible
to keep them out of houses when sur
rounding premises offer breeding
places in the form of refuse henps, un
screened outhouses nnd manure piles,
The town should follow the exnmplo
of tho Home Economics Society and
adopt other measures to eliminate this
enrrior of disease and filth.
It is urged that every family make
one or moro fly traps nnd set thnm
about the premises where files gather.
For tho present Mrs. Harry Thorlcy
will receive nnd pay for the flies if
taken to her home.

Every Available Man and Machine
Will be Drafted to Help Reap
Nation's Grain Crop.
Mr. Don Coppin, proprietor of
Don's Garage, has just returned from
a trip through Millard county, where
he placed two Cletracs and two 23x30
New Century Separators with alfalfa
huller attachments.
His observations on this trip led to
tho conclusion that hundreds of acres
of fertile land have gone uncultivated
in some parts of the country through
the shortage of labor. He was also I
told that the snme conditions exist1
throughout all the grain producing'
regions of the world. Although the
Utah crop is a good one, the country's1
average of grain is more thnn 25 per1
cent below normal, and it is certainly,
the duty of everyone who possibly can
help, to pitch into the harvest and get'
every bushel of the crop in on time. I
There will be little enough nt best,
and nny waste of grain means a ser
ious shortage which will raise still'
further the price of the very neces
sities of life. '
As Mr. Coppin sees it, man power
and horse power are the two factors
that will prove of vital need in getting
in the 1020 harvest. Nothing can re-1
place a certain amount of human inns-'
cle nnd brain in tho harvest field, but
the shortage of draft animals can
easily be made up by the use of tho
small farm tractor. Because of the
growing cost of keeping norses nnd
mules, the tractor hns proved a real
economy throughout tho hnrvom nnd
threshing seasons.
The small farm tractor easily 1 p. '
places two to four teams in the har
vest fleld. It handles one or two bind
ers according to the size and layout

Last Wednesday proved to the
baseball mannger.s that Cedar City is
not a base ball town.
It was not on account of the busi
ness .men, they came through with
their share roynlly. It was the pub
lic. They don't como out.
The locnl team hns gone behind on
both of the last games played here.
The total gate receipts for both tho
games were over $40.00 short nnd
the team had to stand it.
Further, a plnyer when ho looks
up at tho grand stand and sees th
support he's getting, decides right
I there the kind of a game ho will play.
If the crowd is large, nnd he sees that
the fnns nre interested enough in Ce-
. dnr City to como out, thero is nlmost
nothing he won't do to win. On the
I other hand, when the public haven't
enough interest in the national game
or tho homo town to even come out to
see why they lost or how they won,
it makes the players all feel like
"Well, if the publir don't care whothor
we win or not, I don't see why wo
should get out here in the hot sun and
work ourselves to death; we don't get
1 anything out of it, only a fair-sized
amount of hnrd work, nnd when wo
get through, dig down in our pockets
and pull out the money to make up
jwhat we went behind."
, Here's n guy that had night marcs
1 for three nights before every gnme
played of the long hot walk to the
ball grounds. You usually find him
like this, enjoying himself up town,
I where it's cool.
Well, we have no more base ball In
' Cedar City this year, until Fair time,
1 nnd the way the people hero turn out
l then will probably decide whether or
I not we will hnvc a base ball team here
all next year.
Excursion to Cover Five Counties
and Wind Up at State Farm
Bureau Convention.
On Friday and Saturday, August
20th and 21st, there will meet in Salt
Lake City a great Farm Bureau con
vention, representing tho farm bu
reaus of cloven Western states. In
order to get the greatest possible ben
efit from this gnthering, which is the
first of its kind In the history of the
Farm Bureau movement, the Iron
county farm bureau has planned its
annual excursion to include attendance
nt its meetings. Moreover, this is not
ull tho good things planned for the
excursion. Tho trip is scheduled to
include a visit through the counties of
Piute, Sevier, Snnpete, Utoh and Salt
Lake, beginning August lGth and land
ing the excursionists in Salt Lake City
on the 19th ready for the big conven
tion. Those who plan to go but have no
cars, and those who have cars and
wnnt passengers, should communicate
with tho farm burenu officials so that
transportation can be nrranged for all.
No such opportunity for educational
recreation hns ever before como to the
farmers of Iron county.
iAliEIM" I
In An Exciting But Rather Imper- B
feet Battle Won From Visitors H
By Score of 12-14. H
Enterprise Sends Strong Delegation H
of Rooters and Gives Loyal Sup-
port to Their Team, Which is H
a Credit lo Any Town That Size. H
In a rather exciting, though hardly H
a high class game, as is evidenced by
the score of 11-13, Cedar City ball H
team won from the Enterprise boys" H
on tho locnl fair grounds last Wedncs-
day afternoon. At tho commence- SH
ment of the game the Cednr City team fl
tried out some of the players in now H
nnd strange positions, tho best pitcher i
occupying tho cntcher's place behind SH
the bat, but after four or five innings H
i became apparent that if they were H
going to win the game it behooved H
them to "put their best feet forwnrd," H
for Enterprise Jins a bunch of mighty M
husky and shifty plnyers, with an un- H
usunily strong battery, which means H
so much to n ball team, and tho score H
was going in favor of Enterprise. H
With Wilkinson in his accustomed H
place in the cntcher's box, and a fresh H
pitcher, the scales were gradually bal- fl
nnced in the other direction, and tho H
score was first evened up and then H
pulled down in Cedar's favor, but to H
the very last there was no "cinch," as H
to tho outconio, nnd considerable mon- H
ey chnnged hands, mostly on odds in
favor of Cedar, however. IH
cSgl$& "Ulrst .to bat, &'dahU& M
Cedar team did not require their last ;.'
linings to decide the game, with two M
tallies in their favor. H
Thero was a fair crowd out to wit- .H
ness tho game, and Enterprise was H
well represented in the rooter's bench- 'H
es. They are very loyal and cnthus- H
lastic over their team, and they have 'H
n right to bo, for it is on unusunlly H
strong one for a town of Enterprise's ,H
population. M
There were a few brilliant plays H
during the game notable among which ,H
was the clean three-bagger batted by !.H
Milne, and his clever theft of home l.
base on a ball scarcely out of the 'H
hands of the catcher, it seemed, Milno iH
has tho reputation of just naturally !H
outdistancing tho ball between bases, 'H
anyhow. iH
A little incident occurred nenr the !
end of the game which is very much '
regretted, occasioned by a difference H
of opinion ns to the procedure in the "ll
case of the withdrawal of n player lll
from the game and then reinstating iH
him Inter, which was done in the case 'H
of George Nelson, Cedar City's first H
pitcher. The question came not ns to H
whether he had n right to play or not, iH
if challenged, but as to forfeitures, .'H
the umpire not only precluding him M
from the play after the elapse of half 'H
an innings, but counting him n man 11
out as well. This the management of iH
the Cedar tenm stoutly protested nnd '.
considerable time was wasted nnd the H
spectators greatly disgusted before lH
the decision of tho umpire was com- i'
plied with. It was the only mnr to ' H
a good game, and ought not to hnvo H
been indulged in. A gracious yielding H
on cither side, nnd particularly on the M
part of the home team, as wo did in B
the game with Milford, when the chat- B
lenged man on the Milford tenm was M
nllowcd to complete the game, would JB
have been far better, particularly in BB
the light of subsequent develop- B
ments Cednr winning with compara- B
tivo ease after conceding everything M
nsked by the umpire and the opposito lB
tenm. , . 'M
One practice that has reached a m
point where it is a positive nuisance t H
ami seriously interferes with the play- H
ers, is thnt of permitting spectators ,H
to squat about on the ground almost :H
up to the batters' base, and indulge in H
jibes and uncomplimentary remarks, tM
"Rooting" is permissnble in all ath- 1
letic games, but it ought to bo con- 1
fined to tho grandstand or at least bo- M
yond the prescribed boundaries of the 1
game. Only the players, the umpires, H
score keeper nnd other officials should H
bo permitted within tho nearest fence, ,M
and to do so detracts from the dignity l
nnd interest of tho game, nnnoys and jH
confuses the players, and often results .M
in errors which otherwise would not tH
be made.
Keep out, gcntlomen, in future and H
give the playors a fair chance. iM
