tion if he is alert, as a matter of
course, during his college work, and
without extra effort.
If, on the other hand, the New Mex
ico boy goes to an eastern institu
tion and then returns to this state
to make his living, the acquaintances
formed in the eastern school are lost
for all practical utility and he must
spend a few years at least in learning
the practically useless things about
his working environment It means
that the eastern school, no matter how
well it may have finished him in the
ory, has cost him loss of valuable time
and double effort.
For the young man who expects to
live his life in New Mexico, theory and
practical information come in a single
operation and with a single effort at
the New Mexico institution.
The University might have pointed
out the added fact that the theoretical
part of the education can be had in
the New Mexico educational institu
tion just as thoroughly and at about
half the cost involved in attending an
eastern college, which from a practical
standpoint, clinches the argument for
our home institution.

"Damaged Goods" pictures the terrible consequences of
vice and the physical ruin that follows abuse of the moral
law. It is a stirring plea for a pure life before marriage, in
order to make impossible the transmission of hereditary
taints to future generations.
This 7 reel picture will make mother, father, daughter and
son think and beware. It has played return engagements
m all the large cities. This is a guarantee.

tary Baker stated most emphatic
ally late today that there was
"absolutely no basis of any kind
for reports that preparations are
under way for withdrawing Am
erican troops from Mexico. He
said the American troops were
moving rapidly south and that the
orders to General Funston fol
lowing the Columbus massacre
had been unchanged.
Secretary Baker made the fol
lowing statement:
"The object of the expedition
was stated when it was undertak
en. It has never been changed.
No other orders have been given
and the expedition is busily pur
suing it now with what I hope
is a fair chance of early success."
M. W. Mills Pinched
(Springer Times)
Deputy Sheriff Cunningham ar
rested M. W. Mills, u local attor
ney last Saturday on a warrant
charging him with assuult with
a deadly weapon. Mills was tak
en before the justice of the peace
after spending a short time in
jail and was granted a continu
ance of his hearing until Monday
morning. A further continuance
was granted Monday morning and
in the meantime the state lost its
star witneses, who left town as
u result of a report that the local
attorney was about to serve a
varrant on him for assault and
battery. Being minus the neccs
snry fun's with which to defend
himself the star witness flitted
hence. It is reported that the gun
play occured as a result of the
demands of a former employe of
the local attorney for the sum
which was due him for work. The
state laws prohibit any person
from drawing a six shooter with
out discharging it, and it is said
that the defendant was given am
ple time to shoot before the gun
was taken from him by Inspector
M. G. Keennn. The attorney at
tempted to dissuade Deputy Cun
ningham from throwing him into
the city bnstile but his arguments
were of little avail; he was led to
the cage in the presence of a
large audience. The performance
reminded the spectntors of a com
mon scene in a branding corral
where the husky calf sets back
at the end of a saddle rope and
is lead along by leaps and bounds.
The local attorney is obliged to
two Raton citizens who were
present during the show, for his
release from the cárcel. It was
necessary that the attorney be
present at a stockholders' meet
ing which came to an abrupt con
clusion when their counsel was
taken into custody.
Miss Maize a Clever Trapper
Miss Edith Maize, whose ranch is
located under the rim rock on the
; slope cf the Bartlett Mesa, just north
of the city, brought down Wednesday
two lynx pelts taken from animals re
cently caught by her in traps set
near the ranch house.
During the past winter, Miss Edith
has been sufficiently clever in setting
her traps to catch 3 lynx and nine coy
otes, upon which she secures from
the county a bounty of $2 for each
scalp. The three lynx pelts, which are
unusually nice ones, are being made
into rugs to adorn the floor of her
bedroom. According to tell-tale tracks
left in the snow there are four lynx
that have made their homes in the vi
cinity of Raton Peak during the win
ter. Three of these have fallen vic
tims to the traps set by Miss Maize,
and the fourth she expects to bag be
fore summer. The riddance of the
neighborhood of these night prowlers
is the best insurance the ranchmen
can have against frequent raids on
barnyard flocks. To trap these crafty
animals requires considerable knowl
edge of the game, at which Miss Maize
seems to be an adept. Raton Range.

Dear Sir:
There seems to be some misunder
standing regarding the advertisement

The State Land Office has designat-1
ed the STATE RECORD as the paper!
located at the capital for such not

where they can find land sale notices
published, it is difficult to tell them'
the county paper in which the notice I
is to be placed until the land is ready

sized tracts. Therefore, such parties
are informed that the notices will al
ways be found in the State Record.

HENRY FOR THE SEN ATE
I An advertisement of the New Mex
' ico State University, now running in
I the Citizen, brings forward a new and
very impressive view of the value of
attendance upon New Mexico educa
tional institutions by young men and
young women of this state who expect
to make their homes in New Mexico
after college education has been com
pleted. This is the matter ol ac
quaintances, friendships and personal
relations formed during college days;
and the knowledge acquired during
these days of resources, conditions and
opportunities existing in the region
wherein the educational institution is
located.
The New Mexco boy, for instance,
whose parents live in New Mexico,
and whose future home is likely to
be in this state after college days are
over, will, if he attends New Mexico
educational institutions, be able to ab
sorb daring his college days a vast
fund of practical information tbaut
the state's conditions, resources and
business and development opportun
ities which may reasonably be ex
pected to prove of enormous practical
value to him when everyday working
years begin. He gets this informa-
Detroit, Mich., April 7. Henry
Ford today declared the result
of last Monday's presidential pre
ference primary, in which he de
feated United States Senator W.
was a victory for peace rather
A. Smith by more than 5,000 votes
than for himself. He interpreted
it as meaning that a majority of
Michigan voters endorsed his
views on preparedness. He also
reiterated his assertion that ho is
not in politics.
"I am glad," said Mr. Ford, "be
cause I interpret the honor ns an
expression of a majority of the
voters that they believe ns I do
against military preparedness and
the exploitation of the working
man by the moneyed munitions
interests. I believe that, if the
people urging us to prepare, get
us into the state of preparation
that they desire, they will find us
in a war in a very short time.
The primary vote leads me to be
lieve that the r-'ijority of the vot
ers in Michigan 'eel the same way.
