EVERYBODY READS THE ENTERPRISE—EVEN IF THEY BORROW IT!
I f— ' Founded In 1899 by Col. W. F. Cody (“Buffalo Bill") and Col. Peake. VOLUME XXIIL NUMBER 48. 1922 STAMPEDE BREAKS RECORDS IN ATTENDANCE AND ENTHUSIASM 'BILL’PAWLEYHANGS IN THE WHITE HOUSE Washington, D. C., July 6. —What is said to be one of the most remark- ; able photographs ever taken of a bucking broncho and rider was trans mitted to President Harding recently by Congressman Mondell, and it now has a prominent place on the walls of the White House. The horse, a pow erful five-year-old maverick who had in previous years eluded successive roundups, was photographed with the rider astride, while standing perpen dicularly just an instant before the animal fell backwards. A miracle and unusual agility saved the rider from serious injury. This remarkable picture was taken during a wild west entertainment pro-’ vided for visitors at the Phelps ranch at Pitchfork, near Cody. The rider was “Bill” Pawley, an old employe of the Phelps ranch and a most daring broncho buster. During Mr. L. G. Phelps’ last visit to Washington he referred to the pic ture during a chat with the President, and the Chief Executive expressed a desire to see it The unusual snap shot was sent to Congressman Mon dell, who transmitted it to the Presi dent A sad feature of the incident was the fact that since the photo graph was sent from Wyoming the donor has died. JOHN W. HAY WILL HOLD MEETING HERE MIDDLE OF MONTH John W. Hay writes that while he was unable to make Cody in time for the Stampede he expects to be here either the 17th or 18th of this month when he will hold a meeting in the interests of his gul>ernatorial cam paign. He plans to leave Rock Springs on the 12th and go through with the car avan that will open the Hoback Can yon line into the Park, returning by the way of Cody. Mr. Hay states that after a trip to Buffalo, Newcastle, Gillette, Casper, and Sheridan he has no reason to feel • discouraged with the outlook.

Indians And Spectators Go Away Satisfied—Best Show Ever, The Verdict. “The best show I ever sawl” This verdict rendered by the people who packed the grandstands and bleachers was the com mittee’s reward for its weeks and months of hard work and it feels well repaid for all the effort it has put forth. For three days our little town was a mass of color and life, jammed with horses, riders, cars. They came not only from the towns of the basin, northern Wyoming and Montana, but from Phil adelphia, New York, Boston and the Pacific coast to see the nuique celebration which Cody has staged for the third time. Chief Bird Hat and other Crow Indians arrived with their camps and horses to lend still more color to the picturesque scenes which for three days made the town one of the most interesting in the West. Owing to lack of time it is not possible for the Enterprise to publish this week more than a meagre account of the celebration and the results, but next week it will give itself the pleasure of making particular mention of the events and the participants who helped make it the success it proved to be. Briefly, it may be said that the gate receipts showed that 5,395 j persons were in attendance during the three days. The receipts j totaled $8,857.65. On the 4th of July 2679 were present, the sth, 1642, and the 6th, 1094. As the bills are not yet in, it is too soon to say where the asso ciation stands financially.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 5, 1922. PRINTER FINDS RANCH LANGUAGE AMBIGUOUS Farmer Farmer, who is now rough ing it w’lth Farmer Hppkins out on Clarks Fork, was in during Stampede week helping out the Enterprise dur ing its rush of printing. Elmer says ranch life is a little ambiguous to a printer at UYktil he gets onto the language. For instance, he w’anted to know if the Mrs. wanted a hen set single or double column, w-as looking for a quoin wrench to lock up a gate and calls eating his dessert pieing his form. He says, however, he likes the life and intends to follow it perma nently. VOICES OF THE NIGHT Cody. Wyo., July 5, 1922. Miss Caroline Lockhart: I wish to inform you with a great I deal of agony and regret that your miniature mules have been very an noying for the past two days, from 3a. m. until sa. m. But I could over look this if they did not disturb my beauty slumbers (which I am in much need of) by their everlasting I mooing and ah-ee-ing. You moved | the pavilion to save one lady’s beauty i sleep and it would only be a small matter to move your baby mules to save another one. Your true friend, BOHUNKUS. AVERAGED WELL The two Little boys went through the Stampede with varying fortune. George Shows A won the free-for-all the last day, but June was disquali- ' fied in the burro race because he couldn’t make the weight. Fifty thousand women from Euro pean countries have entered the Unit ed States since the armistice. AS B. V. D.

The hotel which has been proposed for Cody would contain appoximately 1000 rooms and cost $5,000,000. A number of local business men j met here this week with B. H. Farrell of Philadelphia, who is engaged In promoting the building of these ho tels, to learn of the proposed plan*. Mr. Farrell stated that the building of | the hotel would be financed by the sale of 5000 hotel club memberships at 100 each. This, he stated, could be accomplished without iserioius diffi culty. It was also pointed out that ' the great natural attractions at Cody | would make it a particularly desir ' able location for such an institution. | A committee consisting of John F. Cook, L. R.
