BASEBALL
SEASON IS ON
Holbrock played the , opening
Kame of the season with Fort
Apache, and trimmed the "sol-
data" to the tune of. lb to
Fort Apache played an erratic
game, 6howing Rood only in
spots, while Holbrook played a
good heady name all the way
through.
Little dust storms came with
enough frequency to try the
good humor of the attendance.
But if the players noticed the
dust there was no outward evi
dence of it.
The game opened at 1:30 p. m.
instead of 3:00 p. m. as original
ly planned. The game was not
a fast one from point of. time,
and it is probably best that it
was not to speedy being the
opening game. A large and ap
preciative crowd was in evi
dence. The game was devoid ot
any rough stuff.
Brilliant fielding on the part
of Fred Gaumnitz. coupled with
fine pitching, fielding and hitt
ing on the part of Ted Reuter
characterized Holbrook's effort.
Fort Apache played a much bet
ter game after the manager had
shifted his line-up somewhat and
sapplanted a couple of his play
ers with others.

GOOD SCOUTS
JOHN FUNK
John Funk plays the earn
square from every angle; never
is in pnblic notice obtrusively;
is a fair and square man to do
business with,, and always fig
ures that the other fallow has
some rights. The conduct of
his business is above reproach.
CATTLEMEN

The following wire from
E. H. Crabb chairman of
Livestock Board to E. W.
Stephens, Sec, and trans
mitted to Inspector L. D.
Divelbess, interest:
"Get information from
district inspectors as to num
ber of cattle for sale in their
respective districts. Have
them see as many cowmen
as possible to learn who
would be interested in plac
ing their cattle in northwest
on time. This information
urgently needed in connec
tion with Arizona Cattle
Growers Association move
meht to place steers in north
west. Hope this informa
tion will be available upon
my arrival Phoenix about
May 10th. "
IN TOILS
Two young men, Henry Com
stock and Raliegh E. Burt, evi
dently imbued with the idea that
the' world owed them a living
sans work, selected Carl Behn's
store in Winslow as a repotsiory
of worldly goods from which to
select needed articles of wearing
apparel. But they failed to
reckon with the resourcefulness
of Sheriff Newman, and are now
"languishing in durance vile."
On last Friday night Carl
Behn's store was entered and
robbed of a quantity of clothing,
shoe. etc. Uponbeing notified.
Sheriff Newman immediately
went to Winslow to investigate
the robbery. Wires were sent
out, and with help of the Santa
Fe officers, these young men
were apprehended at BelenvNew
Mexico.
Not knowing how many or how
desperate the culprits might be.
Sheriff Newman took Deputy
Gardner of Winslow along with
him. Part of the distance wat
traversed by car and part by
train in order to bring the of
fender into Holbrook on train
;To. 9, Tuesday morning.
At their preliminary hearing
in Winslow, these two young
offenders implicated two others,
and Sheriff Newman is now in
New Mexico after them.
Obviously this is not a healthy
county for crooks.

JUNIOR GIRLS
ENTERTAIN
Testifying to the fact that
the kiddies can entertain and
royally," too, what could have
been nicer and . more comp
lete than the entertainment
afford by the little ones to
their mothers on Wednesday
of this week.
Wednesday, the junior
girls of the Girls' Friendly
entertained their mothers at
the Friendly Hall from 3:00
to 5:00 p. m.
The hall was exquisitely
and beautifully decorated in
blue birds and blue festoons
and streamers. Quiet, sub
dued atmosphere lenta fairy
like air to the room, and the
fairies were . there to grace
the setting. Dainty refresh
ments were . served and a
program rendered. A piano
solo by Wilma Bazell and a
violin solo by Burl Goode
were particularly refreshing
and good.
Try it again, kiddies!
DREAMS
By Nan Terrell Reed.
He longed to live a story
Of the desert-island brand.
Where a man can play the hero
On a stage of burning sand.
He dreamed of writing verses
That the world would label good,
With a meter of perfection
And a theme misunderstood.
H thought with joy of travel
'Neath an unfamiliar sky.
But he simply couldn't do it.
So he simply didn't try.
For his days were full of farming
And h3 middle name was Toil,
And he had to spend the hours
On unrornantie soil;
And there wasn't any prospect -
Of his reaching foreign lands.
For the anchor to his acre
Was a pair of loving hands.
So he didn't live the story
Of the de3ert-island brand.
Bat he made a decent garden
From a strip of stony land.
He was anchored, to an acre
But he man8ged, on tne whole,
To'keep a perfect meter
In the poem of his soul.

LOCAL NOTES
FROM ADAIIANA
Mr.Edward Hennessey return
ed from Holbrook Tuesday whfra
he had been for several days
allowing hit Holbrook family to
visit him. .;
Joe Thomas says the water it
as. low now in the Rio Puerca at
he has ever seen it. It is semc
dry here.
Mr. Ward (we did not learn
whether his Riven name was
Montgomery or not) wbo is a
missionary from Indian Walls,
is visiting our merchant, Mr. R.
R. Alton, here. Mr. Ward knew
Mr. Alton years ago out on the
reservation. Even at that tima
Mr. Ward says Bob wore trous
ers and had quit living in Hogans
and all that Bort of thing. Ha
says in. fact be acted very rauck
as he does now.
The constituents of Seaatar
Saunders should petition the sen
ator to introduce and work ftr
a measure in the Senate . to aid
by proper legislation our much
neglected water ways in Apacha
County. We have right at our
very door an example of this
neglect. Look at the Rio Puerco.
Of what benefit is that stream
at present to the public? Now
if.it were properly dredscd
from Gallup to Holbrook and a
tug boat and a line of barges
with Mr. Edward Bargeman of
Houck as captain was put ia
operation, from Gallup to Hol
brook and intermediate points.
and loaded with coal from "Gal-
up, the cost of our coal would
be very much reduced. And the
barges need not be returned
empty either. They could bs
loaded with old ties from Hol
brook and crude oil and petrified
wood from Adamana. Landing
docks could be made at Hennin's
grist mill at Pinto, and at Jo
Thomas' lauding at Adamana.
We understand Holbrook has
splendid docking facilities. Mow
wont somebody develope a little
Pep" and start something?
Mrs. A. J. Kosta, who foriev-
eral jears six months and six
teen days was our a?ent and
first trick operator here, was in
Adamana again Tuesday super
intending the packing and mark
ing of her household goods for
shipment to some point in Cal
ifornia, where we understand
she intends to remain forever
and ever and aye. Her many
friends here in Adamana wish
her success in her new venture
of trying to handle the English
alphabet (one letter at a time)
and also admire her good judge
ment in commencing with the
letter Aye first.
Mrs. O. R. Reed, wife of op
erator Reed of Chamberí was
shopping in Adamana Thursday.
The fact that Mrs. Reed left her
home town and passed throngs
Navajo, Pinto and Bibo to trad
in Adamana, cerainly shows en
terprise on the part of our mer
chants here in attracting ilm
trade from those other four
towns. -
Quite a number ' of tourists
have been complaining recently
about the unkempt condition of
our lawns here in Adamana; es
pecially those at the Santa Ft
depot and section house (occu
pied by W. O. Morgan.) Ys
overheard one lady remarking
that the lawns could at least be
kept mowed and the dandylions
and other weeds kept cut out.
There is a disease among the
"Chickens" here called 'Lim
berneck" 'Major Jensen says,
"Gee, I hope it wont spread as
far East as Chambers." It looks
like the Major was widening bis
range a little, does it cot?
The Litery Digest of April 30
quotes the Norfolk Virginian
Pilot a3 saying that America
needed more little red school
houses but not any more RED
school teachers." I wonder
whom the Little Old Virnnisn
Paper is alludin' to anyway? He
better not come to Adsmana and
go to kicking on the color of our
school teachers. :
