Union County is fast developing- into a dairy county, and I'niou county must, in a measure at least, lend her effort to support anil maintain this industry.

The Rotary Club of Claylon has built up a reputation for pep thai can produce enthusiasm enough to charter special trains lo neighbor ing cities, special cars to conven tions, etc.. but when it comes lo producing a winning ball team well, they do pretty well, but -when the smoke of battle cleared away after last Thursday's came the score 'stood 23 to 7 in favor of the High School team. Hill was on the mound for Rotary, with Hurley on the receiving end. Nothing marred the joy of the High School hows evcent that Iturlev lei his finger gel. in the way of a warm one, so that he might have a plans ible alibi for not being able to gath er in the fast and furious ones, which were very few, since, judgjng by the score, more of the high school boys bit pretty freely. In spile of the defeat. Ihe Rotary is still pushing tht; Claylon boys to develop one of the best High School leums in northern New Mexico, and if they keep Iho proper spirit, the leadership of coacti Torrill will give Clayton a team of which they may feel justly proud.

I regret exceedingly that 6uch pleasant relations aro not to con tinue, as also my relations with a generous public, us Postmaster. SUSIE S. PACE. üisl Sunday a big crowd of fans saw one of the most one-sided games ever pul on m Clayton. Ml. Dora was the opposition, and the final core, if wo counted 'cm all, was ta to .1. We tried lo keep a line on the happenings, bul finally aban doned everything but a few of the more important events. Corich and Johnson each hit out home runs, whilo Johnson also cot a 3 bagger. Lynch. Caldwell and Law rence George cracked out two base hits, among a flock of singles by practically everybody on the team. Ml. Dora used several pitohers. while Johnson pitched till tho 8th ror Clayton antl then went lo first base, Corich taking up the twirling job. Johnson showed classy stylo all through tho game, and finally when old Dutch Sncdcger got spiked oy a runner in me Hin Johnson nut on the breast protector and caught enrich s fast ones Jtist as smoothly as he hits, and that's some smooth. i ne spiking or bnodeger was most regretable and Dutch got a big cut in one leg whiclf will probably nut him out of tho game for some time. II appeared to us that the runner should have avoided it. The "ílark horso" of tho gamo turned out to be none other than Manager Lee Hyrne, who took up Ihe job al first base in the 8th. Ho grabbed everything that came out In lhat end of the diamond, nipping off several prospective hits. Des Moines will arrive in Claylon next Sunday for a session with tho Grays, and say they are going to lake the local scalp back to that fair city, but from the way the Clayton boys acted last Sunday they are due for a surprise. Anyway the game is called for 2:30, and Umpire Ken nedy will start things going al that time, sharp. YOUR HIRTIIDAY What of your' birthday?
