I, 4 4 5f PRESCOTT SOCIABILITY TO FLAGSTAFF ' Last Wednesday morning a 'number of autos came spinning "into our city from Prescott. At first it was thought that the cars were a part of the Studebaker company, but it, .was soon learned that it was the Prescott Sociability run. The cars had gone from Prescott to the. Grand Canyon, and were returning by way of Flagstaff. The party made the trip from the Canyon to Flagstaff in from 4 to 5 hours. The party was delighted with the run from Grand Canyon to Flagstaff, as they said the road was the finest in the country, and they made time over it too. The party was very much pleased with the re ception accorded them here, and during the brief stay were very favorably impressed with the 'people and town of Flagstaff. This ' company will hereafter be boosters for the northern Arizona auto high line, as they all say it is the only route, at least to the Grand Canyon and other point1; of interest in general. The party left in the early part of the day for their home town: Among those in the party were the following: No. 1. Peacemaker R. N. Fredericks and daughter, Theresa. Willie Page driver. No. 2. Press car, Irwin J. S. Loeb and F. G.Urown, treasurer. No. 3. Z. O. Brown and wife, and O. H. Tucker and wife. No. 4. J.I. Gardner and wife, and Miss Wilhelmena King. No. 5. Ralph J. Roper and wife. No. 6. G. E. Meany and wife, and T. G. Norris and wife. . No. 7. Mrs. Morris Goldwater, Mrs. Paul P. Hastings, and Mr. and Mrs. Roger W. Marran. No. 8. Bob Keating and Sam Moore. ,. No. 9. O. A.- Hesla and wife, and Miss Foster. No. to. Frank Foster and wife, 'and John Smith and wife. No. 11. V. 'B. Creekmur and wife, and the Misses Roxana and Alma Creekmur. No. 12. Repair car, Alzert Hatz, mechanic and driver, and Milton Tregellas, adviser and assistant. The Clark .car, which ran inde pendent, driven by Gordon Clark and carrying F. M. Sloan, Dick Merritt and C. F. Urbutt.' ' Doctor car No. 1. Dr. and Mrs. R. N.-Looney, and Miss Winifred Mayer. Doctor car No. 2. Dr. and Mrs. H. T. Southworth and family. The press car in charge of Mr. Loeb of Prescott was a "fast ex press," making the trip from the Canyon to Flagstaff in four hours. Mr. Loeb is going to boost our good roads as he very much en joyed the run. In speaking of the trip one of the party says: Fifteen automobiles which com prised the Prescott Sociability run reached the Grand View at supper time, Monday night. The desert trail from Ash Fork to the Canyon was about as miserable a piece of "imitation road" as has ever been constructed. Monday evening two Overland runabouts manned by Arthur Hendey and O. Longacre of Pres cott and Dr. Hawking and Walter Miller of lerome drew up at the El Tover at 8:30 having made the .run straight through from Prescott that day. These two cars left Grand View at three o'clock Mon day afternoon and arrived in Flag staff at 10 the same evening, hav ing lost two hours on the road de voting this valuable time to clean ing a spark plug which in its old age decided to foul. The other car had absolutely no trouble; this is the new Overland roadster owned by Hendey of Prescott. These two cars followed the balance of the cars out of Flagstaff and stay ed over at Williams Wednesday night and went through to Pres cott next day. The Press car which left Grand View at six thirty Wednesday morning arrived in Flagstaff at ten thirty and reported the finest piece of road they have ever seen. The scenic beauty and wonder ful roadbed madethetripa journey through dreamland for ihe speed ing motorists and if Flagstaff will but let all the gasoline fraternity know about their wonderful high ways motorists from everywhere will be delighted to take advantage of seeing the country which stands second only to the Grand Canyon itself. OF FLAGSTAFF WAY Supporting his contention that the proposed ocean to ocean high way via Clifton in the eastern portion of Arizona, is impractica ble, if not impossible, T. A. Riordan, of Flagstaff, writes to T. G. Norris, president of the Ari zona Good Roads association, in this city, protesting against that route being decided upon, and encloses a communication pub lished in the Los Angeles Times of a few days ago, which discuses the proposition in rather an em phatic manner.' The article was written by a member of the Times pathfinding car, and in one in stance the writer says: "We traveled through some snow drifts and deep mud, and were forced to make many detours because large pine trees barred our way. Our tires were cut to ribbons, but we still have Los Angeles air left in two wheels. For two days we have been fight ing hard our way, and by using the block and tackle we finally pulled into Springerville after spending the night out in the pines in the wilderness. We were told that the 115 miles was impassable and it has been conclusively proven true." Mr. Riordan believes that the Arizona Good Roads association should make the most of this in formation, and that it should help greatly to settle the question which way the transcontinental road should run in passing through the state. He also believes that the dismal failure of the recent expedition from Clifton out of the state via Springerville makes the Flagstaff route a settled one. The Times car is but one of five dis tinct failures in its path-finding jaunt over the Clifton-Springer-ville route, and with Mr. West gard's experience on two different occasions, eastern tourists to the west he thinks will probably heed the warning given by the Times party that adds more fuel to the flames. The association formed at Phoe nix a few months ago, selected the above route through the state, but it appears that one of the feasible routes through the state is via Flagstaff, and when the eastern tourist appreciates the fact that the Petrified Forests, the Moqui Indian Villages, the Painted Desert, the Coconino forests, the Grand Canyon, the prehistoric Cliff Dwellings, and other attrac tions with a weird scenery, are to be reached from that roadway.

Smith to Emerson Ray' Swarthy Swastikas Swamped In a monotonously one-sided contest &e Flagstaff Stalwarts last Sunday put the "Indian Sign" Qn the Williams Swastikas on the local ba.se-ball grounds. The visitors, touted as the four-time conquerors of the strong Williams regular team, were out-classed in every department of the game. "Sy Seymour" Boyd's mighty right was in old time form, and the benderinoes and curlicues he whipped acrosss the plate where Chinese puzzles to the Swastika swatters. He pitched six of the' seven innings played, and of the twenty men who faced him, only three were able to connect safely, and two ol these hits were of the scratch variety. He dispatched thirteen to the Happy Hunting Grounds via the strike-out route, and "Handsome" Hansen, who pitched the last inning, struck out the Brown Braves in one, two, three order, wafting only eleven balls to do it. The visitors made an even dozen errors, most of which were on the disastrous order, while the Stal warts are charged with only one, and that really excusable, by Hansen at short. Twenty-nine hits were scored off the Swastikas phalanx of fling ers, Zahala leading the list with an average ot 833, having made five hits out of six times at the plate, while Catpain Maloney, who was called out on his three bagger "Peak Pigeon" account of failing to touch second, batted 666, making four hits out of six times up: which average was also made by Boyd Hansen and "Ty Cobb" Burton. How that base-ball was batted, bounced and bingldl scorching grouders that seared the grass, and saved Ground-Keeper Walker an extra job this weekl Bouncing bounders, swifter and more capricious than the jumping jack-rabbits in Jim Hance's storyl Fly balls-"High Balls" that filled "Big Chief" Maloncy's heart with hilarity, and made him feel that he was indeed in his proper element! Carrambal What a swat festl And what a strange base ball anomalies occurred 1 Bozarth scoring five runs despite having made only one hit; McCullough, Smith, Zahala and Bozarth play ing the entire game without a single chance at a batted ball; Wilbinson's ' buzzing" behind the bat, which was only equalled by his superb catching; Captain Maloney's deliberatel stealing second at a grave-yard gait; "Handsomes" walking home from third, and eloquently talking the catcher into dropping the ball at the tag. The latter, in the second inning, smashed the ball to the race track, circling the bases, and Boyd, not to be out done, did likewise in the fourth, and just to that he "could do it again" pelted it so far in the sixth that the center fielder was so exhausted after chasing it, that the end of the in ning he was forced to give up and retire to the Commercial for re cuperationl At the end of the seventh act the ledger stood 36 to 1, and the score, like Tennyson's Brook, might have "gone on forever" had not the Bronzed Billikens given up the game, no doubt realizing that to be defeated by a worthy opponent is no disgrace. "Shades of McCormack!" What a comedy! As our automobile visitors ex pressed it, this last victory of the Stalwarts demonstrates that in baseball, as well as in all other lines of worthy endeaver, Flag staff is indeed the leading city of all Northern Arizona. Good work, Lynch and Moloney! School Closes Emerson school closes today. The term in all the grades has been a very successful one. the teachers have applied themselves in a very commendable manner and the advancement of the pupils from one grade to another is an evidence of the results obtained. It is with satisfaction that parents watch the development of their children, and the teachers, under the responsipility, have acquitted themselves creditably. It is with pleastre that The Sun congrat ulates the pupils in the year's work and teachers on the achieve ments they have 'attained in the development of the children en trusted to their care. May another year prove as successful and bene ficial. The Prize Fight The legislature, or at least the senate passed a bill which allows prize fights to go twenty-five rounds, when conducted under the auspices of organized athletic clubs, and which pays an annual license of $250. THE SUN OF LAST WEEK APPRECIATED Last week The Sun was in de mand. It made and effort to set forth some of the advantages of Flagstaff, and the auto party took many copies away. Last Tues day morning's Gazette of Phoenix recognizes the effort in the follow ing manner: The Coconino Sun, in language full of poetry, as well as of truth, gives its town of Flagstaff a mighty boost as the soon-to-be metropolis of northern Arizona. No town could have a better or more effective pleader, and no locality could have more merits to justify the praise. "In the first place," says the Sun, "the town is situated in one , of the most pic turesque places in the world. North of us the great San Fran cisco peaks lift their majestic heads heavenward, and with pride akin to divine honor overlook the surrounding country with a satis faction all their own. To the south and west the hills are covered with stately pines, the kings of the forest. To the east ate fine, fertile valleys and rolling hills. Certainly the artist has had no dream that could even approach this section." How about the summer climate? Let those who go to the coast to swelter in humid atmosphere read and yearn for the delights they have ignorantly thrown away; "Flagstaff is so situated that its summer climate is unexcelled anywhere. The cool nights and d e 1 i g htful days make it a most desirable place to live; while the people in other sections of the country are sweltering in the heat, it is cool and nice up here among the pines." Among the beauties and marvels with which nature and man have endowed Flagstaff and vicinity are the Cave Dwellings, Aztec ruins, Lowell Observatory, Lake Mary, Roger's Lake, Mor mon Lake, the Natural Bridge, the Big Rim, or Tonto Basin and other beauty spots. The Coco nino national forest contains 1, 654,000 acres, and is naturally all around the town. Aside from its beauty, it is a national asset worth well up into the hundreds of mil lions. Arizona has a valuable asset in the Northern Normal school, whose imposing building is shown in a half-tone by the Sun. It stands as eloquent promise of educational progress in our young state, a promise which it has made good during territorial days. We see no, reason why Flagstaff should not, with such well justified boost ing, become not only the metrop olis of northern Arizona, but a favored summer' resort for thous ands of our people. More power to the Sun and all who follow its example. Bill Moats Dead William Moatz, familiarly known as "Bill," met with an accident last Sunday which was the cause of his death a little later in the week. Mr. Moatz was riding his horse when the animal became frightened and threw him violently to the ground and fractured his leg, inflicted severe bruises, and he also received internal injuries from which he could not rally. He was found lying beside the road where he met with the mis fortune by a cowboy coming to town, and he was picked up and brought to the hospital where he lingered until Tuesday evening, when death relieved him from his suffering. Bill Moatz had a large circle of friends who deeply regret his demise. Musical and Social The Methodist Sunday school will give a musical and ice cream social at the church 'on Friday evening, June 21. The musical program will be issued next week. The price of admission is only 25c and this will include the musica and ice cream social. Everybody invited. The Lyric Theater Opened Last Sunday evening the new Lyric Theater opened its doors to the public. As is to be expected the first night was full of incidents and accidents. Everything on the map went wrong for the first show, but the second was better. The house was full to overflowing and many went awav disappointed at not being able to gain admis sion to the first performance. Monday night the show was first class and all who attended were very much pleased with it. The Lyric is one of the best picture show houses in the state and the service will always be the best that money can secure. studebakeTauI party visits flagstaff Last week everybody lived in the state of expectancy or antici pation. The report that a hundred, autos would leave Phoenix (or this place got the busy nerve to working very admirably in our. people up here. As the time drew near for the coming of the big auto party the tension of hope and speculation tightened until most people of our city were standing on tip-toe, so to speak. By the by the autos began to put in appearance. But the number had so decreased when they ar rived that only some twenty-odd cars were successful in reaching the Skylight City. However, the people who came were jolly good natured folks, were very happy over the delight ful trip and the splendid scenery and "exquisite" mountain climate, which are our long suit. The good roads association were in readiness for their coming and Saturday evening the guests were given an informal reception at the opera house, after which dancing was enjoyed for a season. Early Sunday morning the Skylight City Band broke the golden silence of a beautiful morn ing with strains of music that would inspire the angelic hosts, and which served as notice for everybody to come forth and enjoy the day with the visitors. The town was soon alive with the busy crowd, and at an early hour the gas wagons were loaded with people, who went out to the Cliffs, where lunchon was served by the good roads people. The afternoon was spent largely in exploring the cave dwellings and other things of interest out in that section. In the evening all returned to the city well pleased with the days' outing. The people of Flagstaff did everything they could to entertain the visitors in a becomming man ner and the efforts were received in a manner most satisfactory. Early Monday morning the visitors "steamed" out for their home city in the south, declaring themselves as "delighted" with Flagstaff and this section of the great new state. One of the features which seemed to please the people from the south was the excellent summer climate of this section. No doubt many of them will comeback later to spend a month or so of the heated term where blankets are one of the requisites for a good nights' sleep even in the summer. All in all, the "Studebaker run" was a very fine thing for visitors' as well as Flagstaff. Fleck Sells Residence C. L. Fleck, who redently built a two story house in the north part of Flagstaff containing eight rooms, last week sold the same to George Alkire of Phoenix, who will make a summer home of it. Mr. Alkire likes this northern section in summer time and will spend the heated term up here among the pines. Mr. Fleck has removed into the Simmions house, where he will reside for the summer. . . vWi f s ?' i 1 hi T . 1 .1 'if- "1 &&' i- "Klt S$' . ;.V J1? '- ? .
