Stephens Russel, eldest son of
Prof, and Mrs J. E. Russel for
mer resident of Roy was one of
the winners in the District In
terscholastic meet recently held
at the Western Texa3 State Nor
mal at Canyon, Texas. Stephen
Russel and James Patman com
posed the Clarenden team and
they were victorious over sev
eral western Texas towns. They
will now represent Western Tex
as at the Annual State Meet at
Austin, Texas which will be
held the latter, part of this
month. Stephen Russel got pra
ctically all his education of the
grades in Roy and his many
friend's here congratulate him on
his success and we expect some
day to hear of Steve being one
of the Texas lawyers and equal
, to far famed Texas Bailey.
"' We clipped the following from
the N Clarenden News altho a
number of other papers had
write ups about the debate.

The base ball game between-
Roy and Kephart was called in
the third inning last Sunday
afternoon' on account '. of rain.
The score stood 5 to 3 when the
rain drowned the boys out. The
game was being very loosely
played on both sides, altho the
pitching by Williams for the Roy
team was rather spectecular, he
having 8 strikeouts in the 3
innings. Williams looks like a
winner and we predict that the
Roy team will clean up the ma
jor portion of the games they
play this year. Several new men
are on the team and it looks like
Roy has one of the strongest
teams she has put in the field
for years. Come out Sunday
and watch the boys clean up on
Loretta. ,
A prairie fire that threatened
to do great damage, broke out
on the place of Fred Yocng six
miles east of town last Wednes
day. Quite a few persons from
Roy motored out and assisted in
fighting the flames and they
were quickly extinguished, but
however, had consumed quite a
lot of good pasture and some
stacks.of feed before the fire was
under control.
