Stay or. the ground and talk only toyor-r tf-nmpv This is th advice of the National Sfv Council. Senator Jones of New Mexico. hns a novel schema f;r raismp money with which to construe, repairand maintain publi- waeror roads.

The 1913 tire gave an average service of 4.000 miles while the tire- of to day comes very c'ose to averag ing 8 000 miles. Thus a tire costing $50 then, costs "one and onefo jrth cents per mile of mo tor travel. With a 20 por cent drop in price the tire of today coses five-eisths of a cents a mile. ' Ho. for th traffic constable! In the not far distant future he'll be a common fixture at country crossroads. With nar row rnad3 and constantly in creasing traffic over them con gestion is alteady apparent in manv sections. At several ru ral points in Ohio traffic officers are now on rtutv on Sundays and holidays. Motorists will be glad to see rural guardians of the peace engaged in directing traf fic instead of planning speed traps. Running on under inflated tir1? is a daneerous practice. Soft tires mike steering difficult, con sume more power and may more easily be pulled off. the car than when not properly inflated. When a car ;s traveling at a high speed and throws a tire it is ex tremely dangerous. Aside from the danger running on soft tires is naed!essly expensive. Itquick- Iv destrovs the cotton fabric of the tire and shortens its life. A removable track for rubber tired road vehicles is one of the newest developments in the in dustry. Located between the front and rear regular wheels four additional wheels are pro vided. AU wheels run on two tracks censisting of two rubber ized fabric bslts. With the tracks an automobile may be vised in deep snow, "bottomless" roads and plowed ground. o Concentration of federal aid money upon the most important state roads which have an inter state character, is the next logi cal step in co-operating with the several states in highways im provement, according to Senator Charles E. Town6end, chairman of tha senate committee on post oSP.ces s.nd post roads. "Money from the national treasury ex pended in co-operation with the state properly calls for state and not coantv dollars." he said. Ther is frequently danger of short circuits in the battery be cause of the fact that one of the terminals is located near the metal handle used for lifting the battery. To obviate this danger it ia only n2ces?ary to slip a short length of rubber tubing RACE RIOTS IN TULSA Late Reports Claim 175 Killed Late Dispatches Show Dwind ling Casualties Tulsa, Okla., June 2. Outwardly, Talsa resumed its normal atmosphere today except for the presence, un der a martial lav proclama tion of approximately five huudred national guardsmen sent here yesterday after many hours or rioting be tween negroes and white men, including a night of incendiarism in which virtu ally the entire negro quarter was destroyed with a loss of about $1,500,000. As the situation quieted down, the estimates of dead dwindled. Nine white men dead had been identified to day and fifteen negroes were accounted for. The list of known wounded increased, however, and the total was unofficially estimated at a bout 240. Basis for estimates that still ranged as high as forty negroes dead was the possi bility of an unknown number of bodies having been des troyed when the torch wras applied to the negro section. Casual search of the quarter failed to disclose additional bodies or bones today. Return to Work Negroes began to return to their places oí employ ment this morning. Some wore white handkerchief a- round their arms, while oth ers wore wrhite, ribbon ; bad ges inscribed: 4 'police pro tection. Governor J. B. A. Robert son, wno came nere yester day from Oklahoma City, to assume personal charge of the eliorts to restore order this morning said he felt as sured the trouble was over. He said he intended to insist on a rigid grand jury invest igation of the clash. Their plight of more than 5,000 negroes under joint guard and protection at the fair grounds was regarded .1 -mm- as serious today. Many oi them lost their entire pos sessions when fire swept their district. HUNDRED YARD DASH At 10:30 A. M: Monday, Harvey sponsored by Capt. Garrison of the Fort and Arnold Lee, local boy, in whom the Editor the News sees a future, ran a hundred yard classic. Lee won by a good margin. Both boys are just youngsters and both extremely fast. The event was witnessed by a large and appreciative crowd. Capt. Custice fired the starting pistol, while Chas. Osborne kept a watch ful eye on the starts. over the wire at the point where the contact might be made. To do this the tubing should be slit lengthwise, slipped over the wire and taped firmly in place.

And made a man a millionaire. Then all the knockers, great and small, Their rotten luck began to bawl, And every measly tightwad hog Saw in the man a lucky dog. They couldn't see it wasn't luck.

GOOD ROADS A sensible solution is being worked out by the state of Illinois. The state highway department has under con struction an experimental road containing 64 test sec tions, each section differing from the others inx design. The types of payment used include macadam base with asphalt surface, macadam with brick top, concrete base with brick and asphalt top and regular concrets roads, both plain and reinforced. This road is now practically completed but will be allow ed to harden for several months. The testing will probably commence in the fall. The trails will consist of a passage of trucks over the road first carrying light loads and then gradually in creaseing the road. Equip ment of all types will be used in these tests. Careful records will be made then analyzed by expert highway engineers of the Illinois de i i i 1 1 partment ana ouiietms is sued. inis is an example oi a sane and fair method of at tacking the problem and will be watched with interest by highway engineers and the general public.

AMERICAN LEGION AND SERVICE MEN HOLD MEMORIAL SERVICES On Sunday, May 29, at 12:00 o'clock, noon, a qu?et congrega tion or men nu women ia;a a side their political diireri:r-cte and religious creeds ai-d gather ed for an hour in the rustime Theatre where a beautiful and impressive Memorial Service wat held in honor cf our fallen heroes. All seats except those reserv ed were filled when the c rches tra opened the program with overture to which a company oi veterans of the Civil War, the Spanish-American War ar.d the Great World War marched in Included in the company were s number of visiting soldiers frorx Fort Apache. After the singing of the Na tional Anthem Bishop O. C. Wil liams of the Mormon church of fered t he invocation. This was followed by a splendid rendition of an anthem, "Even Me," by the Union Choir, the baritone solo part being taken by Mr. H, Perry Carter. Mr. Carter also led the congregation in singing "The Star Spangled Banner," "Nearer My God to Thee" and "America." On the platform, besides the seats occupied by the singers and others who took part in the pro gram, three chairs, draped in flags were reserved, each for a representative of the three late wars. One was occupied by Frederick Leopold, who was wounded while fighting in the Argonne Forest. For some rea son, the chair which should have been occupied by a Spanish- American War veteran remained vacant, but on the third was seated George L. Ulyard who followed "Old Glory" while ser- ying-ra the: 2nd Ciifcrr:a Ksgi-ment-Holbrook's only Civil War Veteran, affectionately known to all as "Uncle George." After the second overture by the orchestra it was announced that it would be necessary to make a change in the program as printed, for "Uncle George" had been induced to sing a song of the "Sixties." Then without orchestra or piano accompani ment the lone "Boy in Blue" brought smiles through tears as he sang in a clear tenor voice several stanzas of "Hoist up the Flag." Uncle George's singing was answered by a volley of ap plause. The Memorial Address deliver ed by Rev. Frank R. Speck oí the Methodist Episcopal Church was given undivided attention. Rev. Speck took for his text thP! thirteenth veVfe of the fif teenth chapter of St. John: "For greater love hath no man" than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." The discourse might well be copied in full but we shall at tempt to give it only in part. His first words brought the audience into close sympathy with the spirit of the meeting. Words were inadequate, he said, in dealing with so sacred a theme, that it was impossible to exaggerate the deeds and vir tues of those who had summed up and perfected by one supreme act the highest virtues of men and citizens. , He said, that he believed if the spirits of those men and wo men who had laid their all on the altar of American ideals could speak, they would ask that rather than rehearse their deeds and virtues, we might spend the hour in thinking of the princi ples for which they had made their sacrifice. He told how from trie very incepiion or our nation, America has stood for freedom, justice and truth to all men and among all men. Eecause of these ideals, because America has always honored God, for these reasons and these alone she has become a great nation. By several very striking illus trations he showed how the God f Nations was not manifiest only BASE BALL Talk about something wierd! That second game of ball took the cake. Well, all honor to the "soldats." They beat Holbrook fair and square. The most illuminat ing about the second game was the first inning all sorts of pyrotechnics were loosed t o the astonishment of the suffering fans. After the first inning the game settled down and was fairly good. But deliver us from witness ing anything else like it. Fort Apache had a much better team this trip, and the boys are good, square players. The first game was fairly good, but did in no way measure up to former exhi bitions given bv teams on the local grounds. First Game: R Ft.

There were present enough or two tables of auction bridge. Prizes were award ed to Mrs. J. W. Bazell, first; Miss Esther Carr, second. Dainty refreshments were served in a charming manner.',- Those present were, Mrs. J. W. Bazell, Mrs. D. J.

Al ways in the affairs of men and nations there has come a time when God said. "Halt! Thus far shalt thou go, and no farther." , He said, the Kaiser tried to make German ideals rule the world but failed, because the German ideals of selfishness and greed based on the theory that might makes right were wrong, fundamentally wrong. Ameri can ideals can and must rule the world becaus they are based on the God-given fundamentals of justice and truth, without which there can be no such word as freedom or democracy. "Right eousness exalteth a nation but sin is a reproach to any people." Rev. Speck warned that the Great World War is over but that the big fight is just tf grp. there must not be another u.. but wars can only be ended by exalting the Prince of Peace at home and by carrying his mes sage to all men in all lands. It is ours, he said to hold high the torch let fall by .failing hands. Then in the fitting climait he closed his discourse by rtciticjr the poem "In Flanders Fields" fullowing it with "America's Answer." After singing the National Hymm and the sounding of taps by Tommy Hathorn the benedic tion was pronounced Rev. Speck. Several hundred poppies made by French orphans were eold by young ladies of the American Legion Auxiliary. The Program was arranged by the American Legion. Much credit is due these vho furnished the veca! and instru mental music. The eight niece- orchestra under the leadership, of Mr. J. F. Fisber added great ly. to service. Mrs. G. ' C Hal'.: and Miss Isla Guard played the. piano accompaniments.
