Official Paper of Navajo. County and the Holbrook Oil Field SiGLE COPIES TEN CENTS VOL. 12. NO. 42. HOLBROOK, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1921. EARL T. LYON, Editor and Proprietor HOLBMOOK DRILLING CONTINUES ON THE RAYNOLDS SYSTEM The men representing the deposit ors of the I'.ayn-i'ds oyttem are still dropping the drill at the mother pool in Albuquerque, the First National. Considerable depth hap. been made in the past f--w o'is-in tact the bailings of the special investigators have Drought forth good indications ALL ARIZONA ROAD WORK TEMPORARILY SUSPENDE All road work in the state has been ordered stoppped by Engineer Mad dfx; k, and 1500 men are thrown out of work as the result. The order means the closing down of the work on the surfacing of the Petrified Forest road in this county which was in progress. Thomas Maddock, state engineer, gave as the reason for issuing the order the inability of the highway department to secure appropriations made by the last legislature, the mo tor vehicle fees being received at the present time, the federal aid which is being returned from the government and inability to get a refund for expenditures made by that department in securing between $2,00(1300 and $3,000,000 worth of federal equipment; also the usual de lay in securing federal refunds for work done in conjunction with the bureau of public roads. ARIZONA PLANS FOR fWO ARBOR DAYS Arizona's two Arbor days, which, by direction of the legislature, must have annual proclamation by the governor. One is for the warmer plains region, the oí her for the plat eau region that usually is snow bound in the springtime of the south. This year for the plains Ar bor day date is February 4; in the north the tree planting will be on April 8. In the law special ndmru ition is given that i bservanee should be had in all schools ard that all school grounds should be adorned with trees. . Gov. Campbell, in his proclamation 'states: "In no other section of the union is this day oí such prime im portance as nere in Arizona. Here a tree means the presence of water and its shade is douhiy grateful to .the wayfarer or to the homebui Icier. The planting uf trees means devel opment and the advance of civiliz ation. I would urge tha"; V.ees of double value be planted, that fruit or nuts be grown by the same tree that affords the shade. I ask that the people join .generally in the proper observance of the dpys, and that the beautifiealion of communi ties and roads be i-ons?dered in con nection therewith." "FIRST SHOCK" OF DEPRESSION IS OVER Although the general business sit uation has changed but little during the past months, there are pronounc ed indications that the first shock of the present depression is over, in the opinion of Archer Wall Douglas, chairman of the committee on statis tics and standards of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States in his monthly report on business conditions, issued by the Nation's Busi ness. 'The most cheering and hopeful feature of the situation is the fast spreading realization that what we are going through is the only pos sible way to teach us the indispens able need of hard, consciencious work, some thought of obligation to our tasks, and getting back once more to those temporarily lost arts of salesmanship, of common sense merchandising, of economical, effic ient production and distribution," says Mr. Douglas. "Only thus can we give service in every phase of national life. The railroads have set the example of re trenchment, by company, by team work, and "by the best service they have given in years. And that is what every other business will have to do if it is to save its soul alive. "Automatically everywhere produc tion is adjusting itself to demannd. This phase has finally reached the iron and steel industry, and is gen eral throughout industrial life. Tex tile mills got theirs first, and con sequently, because of lower costs of production, seem farthest advanced on the road to adjustment. At this writing more of them are resuming than shutting down. Automatically the situation is tending to a more normal relation between supply and demand, which means the solution of many of our problems, "Dealers, who on a falling market are endeavoring to sell only on high prices they paid, rather than on re placement costs, are fooling only themselves as to their ability to get away with it; as are also those man ufacturers who have elaborate rea sons why they should maintain war prices indefinitely. The sooner with in a reasonable time, both of. them take their medicine, the fxxjner we will return to normal times. "The general thought of business men everywhere is fast crystalizing into the resolve to find some way out of the difficulty, some method to chime in with operations of those natural laws which must finally work out-the complete solution of our numerous problems. Unfortunately, the remedies f far proposed in con gress are mere temporary expedients of which it is doubtful whether they will even accomplish their passing purpose. The fundamental soundness of the situation is widely felt. The general mental attitude, while recog nizing the completeness of the col lapse of inflation, perceives that it was not only inevitable but necess ary before a more enduring basis could be reached. This is the basis for that widespread undertone of confidence in the not far distant future. Always provided, of course, that we work out our salvation with common sense and judgement, rather than with fear and trembling. "There is much surface, but often superficial, optimism as to the near future, as a good deal of it is ob from the start. They are now in a strata that shows a streak of yellow with very little grit which is a good indica tion Of nav dirt beneath. A trusher is expected to be brought in before court convenes the latter part of this month. If not, the system will be shot. viously intended for public consump tion. Some of it, too, would be more convincing if it did not come from those who live in a financial atmos phere and have scant personal know ledge of actual conditions prevail ing in that vast stretch of country beyond the ken of those in the great congested centers. That so many, living in the scenes of stagnant trade, and low prices for farm com modities, still have reasonable confi dence in the future Is the best as surance we have in the belief, (in meteorological phrase) that the 'center' of the depression is now passing over us. "To those who still seek comfort from that ancient fetish, the gyra- tions of the stock market, as proph esying the future, all they have to do to be disillusioned, is to contrast the curves of twenty industrials and twenty railroads during the past hve months, to see how utterly at cross purposes they are, and how little thev indicate the actual situation. "While industrial life is steadily tending to increased economy and efficiency in production, the great world of agriculture is adding day by day to its enormous wealth pro ducing capacity. - WHAT'S DOING IN THE LEGISLATURE Senator James Scott, of this county has introduced a bill in the Senate providing for the grading, re pairing and otherwise improving of that part of the public highway be tween the City of Holbrook, in Nav ajo County, Arizona, to the eastern line of the State of Arizona, in Apache County, Arizona, near the Town of Lupton, Arizona, which road is laid out and follows the general line of the railroad right of way of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company as said public highway is now laid out and located, and making an appropriation there for.

CRAVER LEE Wm. A. Lee, chief deputy in the bherirt s oftice, put one over on hi friends and some that were not hi friends last Saturday when he and Miss Zelda Craver, of Cooley, slipped into the county clerk's office and then into Justice Easley as two and came out as one. . This wás the culmination of the romance started while he was era Ployed in the Apache store at Cool ey last summer, and Miss Craver was the cashier. Mr. Lee is the eldest son of Will iam and Clara B. Lee, pioneers of Arizona, and the bride is a daughter of W. W. Craver, who came from Ft. Worth Texas, and located at Coolev. Miss Craver was on a visit to Hoi brook friends, accompanied by her brother, who was the chaperon but the young sleuth left him to hold down his desk in the shenrt s on ice while he and Zelda were married and he fell for it. Mr. and Mrs. Lee are for the pres ent residing at the home of the sroom's mother. Mrs. Clara B. Lee, and the dove of peace has settled down for the brother-in-law, who proved to be a "bum chaperon. Invitations are out for a recep tion which will be tendered the young couple Saturday evening at the home of Mrs. C. a. Lee. LIZ' O' MY HEART I used to own an old tin Lizzie, with many fixtures to adorn it, its many ai lings kept me busy, and my neighbors loved to scorn it. My broad cloth suit was often dirty, from explorations neath the fend ers, and my speed was slow and spurty, and around ine flocked tin venders. While all these items made me holler, yet my heart was always singing. lo no man then I owed a dollar, and my step was light and springing. But one sad day departed Lizzie; my ambitions would surpass it; cot a car witn price so dizzy, not a nieghbor cojld out clp.sa it. from tnat iay. my ihii I measure, for my creditors annoyed me. With not a momer.t s loy or pleasure, dodging bills more than employed me. At last my car acid neath the hammer, and my amu- tions light and airy, fell a martyr mid the clamor, and my oid sell like a fairy, soared above this use less glitter; spied my short depart ed Lizzie, bot her, for I m not a- quitter. 'Neath her fenders I'm kept busy, yet 1 love her noisy rat- lie, 1U1 MIC 3 trtia V un liiv oauie She and I now herd my cattle, lar removed from city pavings. ADAMANA NOTES The airplane that was located at Adamana a few weeks ago is now at the Grand Canyon, having flown the entire distance without mishap, except while they were passing over Winslow Aviator Ainsley lniorms us that he was forced to descend just east of Winslow on account of the hot air coming from the direction of the metropolis and melting the helium around the "joy stick", up on investigating he found that the chamber of commerce and the Ladie's Relief Society of Winslow, were both in session at the same time. Archaeologists have proven what we have always contended; that this portion of Arizona was originally a part of California. Professor von Habernitz, of Berkely, California, the famous antiquarian, has recently discovered over the Blue Forest, the complete skeleton of a pre-historic beast of such proportions that a Dinotherium would look like a Shetland pony beside it. The Profes sor says that this animals diet con sisted mostly of prunes and it could easily have eaten a couple of barrels at one setting. Saturday night the 29th, the Kangaroo Dancing Club, beautifully costumed, met in solemn conclave at the Adamana school house and pro ceeded to give that beautiful mid winter Navajo dance, called in the Navajo tongue "Awk-on-te-che-say," the same being interpreted means, "Corn-meal dance." This dance is always given to prepare "-he floor for the modern dances that follow. The program is as follows: Turn off the lights then scatter about six bit's worth of corn-meal over the floor, then dance on this until you ies faint, sweep off the meal, drag a bale of hay around the floor three times, then turn on the lights and watch the "Chickens." flutter. Miss Mary Beasley has solved the problem of the high cost of feeding chickens. She just gives them one feed of boiled potatoes that have been frozen before boiling. Then she needs never to feed them again and they "lay" too. Major Geo. Jensen of JJogey flats, is exhibiting around town a Heliocopter which he captured over in the "flats." They are a very rare reptile and differ very little from the Gila monster, evidently belong ing to the same family. Mr. Pete Beasley and Col. Frank Owenby of the Rio Puerco Fur and Feather Co., Lt'd. have dissolved partnership, the Col. taking over all the hides, pelts and all fur belong ing to the company while' Pete will pursue the feather end of the game, especially the "chickens" around Adamana Major Geo. Jensen says that a manicuring parlor is very much needed in Adamana. We fear the Major is becoming too modern for this berg to hold him much long er.

JUSTICE OF PEACE SCRAP ON AGAIN Tomorrow is the day set for the earing ox the. quo warranto pro ceedings in the big scrap for the toga of justice of the peace of Win slow town.

Holbrook Drug Co- WATER AND SEWER SYSTEM HEARING NEXT WEDNESDAY Engineers Millett and Davenport of the Santa Fe engineers corps were in Holbrook this week looking over the situation preliminary to lending their services and experience to the city council in working out the most feasible plan for securing a water supply and installing a sew age system. While our councilmen are all level headed business men the best and most economical methods of install ing a water and sewer system is a proposition that they are not suffic iently famaliar with to risk their own judgement especially when it entails an expenditure of public funds to the amount of $135,000. The Santa Fe company has prof fered the services of their best en gineers to advise and assist the council in working out the plan and to do it gratuitously. It is the opinion of these engineers- who have gone over the ground, that several important changes are necess ary in the plans and specifications to obtain the most efficient and economical service. It is suggested that the Imhoff tank method of disposing of the sewage is not as successful or economical as the sewage farm pro ject. Many cities derive quite an income from the various crops that can be raised on the gound around the outfall sewer especially in an arid country. It is very likely that all the bids received at the last meeting will be rejected next Wednesday night and A PROCLAMATION OP ARBOR DAY By the Governor of Arizona Nature is closely associated in the minds of the human race with ira mortality. Its manifestations and the lessons gleaned from its study, point out and support the hope, and what we believe to be the truth that 'though a man may die, yet shall he live again." It is therefore under standable why the people of the State of Arizona, through its legis lature, decreed that the Covernor shall designate and set apart a day on which things material are for gotten and that it be devoted to the observance of a Eignificant and meaningful custom. x It is the duty of the Governor "to make proclamation recommending that the Arbor Day established be observed in the planting of trees, shrubs and vines, in the promotion of forest and orchard growth and culture, in the adornment of public and, private grounds, places and way? and In such other efforts and under takings as shall be in harmony witf the character of the day so estaD- lished.

Leonarda Padilla Tafoya, Plaintiff vs. Antonio Tafoya, Defendant. In the Name of the stai of Am the plans revised, so that every phase of the plans and specifications will be clear to the bidders. None of the bids presented com plied with the plans and specifica tions as submitted, and the bidders acknowledged that they were not sufficiently clear to permit of exact computation on the work and mater ial involved. One bidder remarked that if the Lcontractor bored the wells to the specified depth and installed the machinery and an adequate supply of water was not forthcoming, or if the water would not comply with the test required by law, the city would just be out of luck, and that's all. there would be to it, and the contrac tor could go on his way rejoicing while the city could whistle for the necessary water. This furnished the idea of doing a little development work for obtain ing an adequate supply of water be fore we built the reservoir and laid the mains and this is what th Santa Fe has promised to do for the city, without charge. When this is done, and we have something def inite on which to count as to the volume and source of supply, it may disarrange the present plans of the proposed system. At any rate it will all be thresh ed out next Wednesday night, and citizens having ideas on the matter are welcome to the meeting in fact the council invites the co-operation of Ihe citizens in working out this problem. ona, to Antonia Tafoya.
