University H-AMER (FOREMOST PAPER IN HARDING COUNTY.) ''With Malice toward None, w ith Charity for All, and with F irmness in the Right." VOL. XIX No. 31 ROY. HARDING COUNTY, NEW MEXICO, SATURDAY, AUG. 19TH. 1922 SUBSCRIPTION $ 2.00 PER YEAR. SPAMS KUAN JJL JLL J L J 1, IT'S SAD BUT TRUE The Roy Ball Team got a real trouncing last Sunday afternoon when they went to Mount Dora .to clean up on that team, and when the final, gong sounded, the score read 8 to 2 with Roy hang ing on to the 2 end of the score. The Roy team will soon have to realize the fact that she can not pick up a team of unpracti ced players, and players that ha ve not played together this sea son and then run up against real ball teams and not expect to go down in defeat. This is just what he did last Sunday, minus Mc Cargo, Justice and White, three good players, she substituted other players, good players too, but they had not practiced with the team and the consequences were the team went down to de feat. The peculiarity of Sunday's .game was that each team got eight hits but the Mt. Dora team bunched their hits much better than Roy and they helped to tell the terrible tale. And too a num ber of very costly errors were ma de by several Roy players which added to the score reading so one sided. Young Berry pitched for Roy and he pitched fine ball.; Willia ms was behind the bat and also did good work but the support given them both from the infield and outfield was punk. The Roy team made the long trip in three cars. and did not ar rive at Mt. Dora until 1 o'clock and all were tired from the long ride. They reported the roads rough all the way except the part on the Clayton-Springer Highway. The Mt. Dora people treated the boys fine and the team of that place is composed of a good bunch of fellows, our boys had nothing but words of praise to offer them for the dan dy way they were treated while in the town. They have a strong team and the support given their battery was nearly perfect. In a few weeks the Mt. Dora team will come to Roy for a re turn game and our boys expect to make the story different then. On next Sunday afternoon the County Seat boys will come and cross bats with the local team.. This will be the first game they have played together this season and we expect to see a good ga me of ball. The admission will be 25 cents for Sunday's game. Eve rybody come out and lets give the teams a real welcome and show them that we appreciate the fact that they are trying to give us real sport. Mrs S. N. Page of Wayneville, Mo. mother of Mrs J.W. Nowlin, is spending a few weeks on the mesa visiting her daughter and family. Mrs Nowlin had not seen her mother for 18 years until her arrival here Sunday.

SCHULTZ ANNOUNCES FOtt TREA SURER AND COLLECTOR Editors are like many other peopie, that is they want to cha nge their work occasionaly and sometimes, their position too, and Frank L. Schultz editor of this paper is one of the editors that desires a change so he is announcing this week fcr the candidacy on the Republican ti cket for the office of County Treasurer and Collector of Har din County, subject however to the action of the Republican Convention. Yes, Mr Schultz is a Republi can, has been one all his life and has been a worker in the party ever since he came to New Mexi co many years ago. He has aided his party financially each cam paign and has never asked for an office of any kind since coming here and he feels that his long service to the Republican party entitles him to some recognition from their hands this fall. Born in Illinois, in the big ci ty on the lake some thirty years ago, Mr. Schultz was active in politics while located there and in 1920 he was named as Com missioner from the eastern dis trict of Mora County by the Re publican Party, with out his kno wledge, for he was not even a candidate and was not at the convention. However at that ti me his business at Roy with the Spanish American was so heavy he did not have time to make the campaign and knowing that he could not do the party justice by not making the campaign, he withdrew from the race, even in the face of the fact that he was practically sure of election. Mr.' Schultz comes from a good family, is well educated and fitted is every way to handle the important office which he seeks. Like most of the other candida- la he is married, has a fine wi- fe and two dandy little daugh. ters; He wants the office and is em-imakinff the ra?,e frnm this fart lallU not from the reaaon that friends arg urging hini to try fori the nomination, altho he has been promised support from all parts of the county and will have many instructed delegates when the convention meets to name the candidates this fall. Mr. Schultz came to New Mex ico in 1911 and has been in busi ness in Roy since that time. For several years he was in the real estate and loan business and two years ago he purchased one-hlí interest in the Spanish Ameri can Printing Co., (Publishers of the Spanish American) and has been editor of this paper , since ' that time, having full chare of the responsibility of the paper and we are leaving it to the rea ders to say whether he has made a success or failure, anyway he has doubled the subscription in two years. The placing of Mr. Schultz on the Republican ticket will add strength to the party in Harding County and his nomination will practically mean his election. We are sure any support given him will be greatly appreciated not only by him but by his many friends in the county. A FRIEND The Liberty S. S. is planning to hold their S. S. and Church services in the canyon next Sun day. B. P. BILLINGS FLIES INTO TOWN B F.
