NEWS 1 PS 1 m f. 3 í.'í - Official Paper of Navajo County and the Holbrook Oil Field L C Henning 3 AY V SINGLE COPIKS TEN CENTS BASS BALL H0LBR00X- WINSLOW "Them as has, gits; and them what ain't loses what they got". Other than an overwhelming conceit, Win slow ball players failed to make a display. And oh boy; the Hobrook team proceeded to take that away. Through out the gam3, heavy hitting was the feature. Five home runs three to Winslow, ma terially added to the excite ment and the score. Sixteen clean hits were made by both teams. Lady Luck, ever fickle, rooted for each with admirable impartiality Sat isfactorily have we proved that the local team is the best in Northern Arizona. Come . one, coma all, we'll take you to a cleaning. Individual mention, in this case, doe3 not mean as much as it ordinarily would, 'cause all the boy& "done noble". Capp on first was a strength ening feature whom we could ill afford to lose. At bat he receives credit for our two home runs, one of which was made while two of his play mates occupied bases. Buck les behind the bat, was un able to make a misplay. His pegs to second were super lative. Herewith we predict that the brand of ball played by this seventeen year old athlete guarantees his ap pearance in the "big time". Thompson's seeming ease at second discounts many a difficult put out. That boy sure shows big in the box score. At short Crumley tri-, ed for everything in his ter-1 ritory; but the condition of the infield plus a new posit ion, caused two errors. Arn old Lee at third was some what nervous. For a fifteen year old boy, however, he certainly shows class. Three hits out of five times at bat is a far from slouchy offens ive. In the field, Loweryhad very little to do, but at bat. he was a .50 J man. Center field was much debated, but happily Engle was appointed thereto. Five pu touts result ed from this decision of man agement, and it was evident that the right man was on the job. "Old Reliable" Gaumnitz ably cared for the right garden. Fred headed the batting list, and with re ason. He either hits 'em,or kids the pitcher inte a base on balls. Sunday he hit. "Smiling Ted cannot be too highly praised. When proper ly supported, Reuter can pitch good enough to win any ballgame. Charlie Osborne appeared in uniform for the first t'me this season, and his coach ing on third was in no small measure responsible for the winning of the game.

Burns hit two home runs, Hall made five hits in five CARE FOR DISABLED FIRST There is a great difference of opinion as io the advisa bility and practicability of a Federal Bonus law,but there is nowhere any disagreement as to the desirability of pro mpt,-adequate and generous provision for the disabled veterans cf the war. It is not only the duty but will be the high privilege of the peo ple of 'the United States to provide hospital care for the sick and injured, rehabilitat ion for the crippled and vo cational training for those not capable of making a liv ing. All this the people of the country want done in no spirit of parsimony or re luctance but in the most friendly and gr teful manner and they will have no pa tnience with any officer of the government who mis treats the veterans com mitted to his care. The of ficer of a Southern hospital and vocational training camp who dismiss the members of a protesting committee and who referred to them as "nuts" has no proper place in the government service. He is entirely out of touch with the spirit of the nation and should be displaced at once. It is altogether like ly that some of the sick or injured soraiers are irritable restless, and tryingupon the patience oí those who have charge over them. But that must be expected. They have been through war, and war is hell. The officer who can not handle such men has no place at the head of an in stitution maintained for their care and rehabilitation. WHAT'S YOUR POLICY? Are you doing business, or treating the man who may be working for you, cn the army and navy plan? By that ;.ve mean, if he offers a sug gestion abut the business do you upbraid him for it as though he dared to' know more th.n a superior officer? Or if he tells someone else chat he thinks the business should be conducted in a dif ferent way, do you call him "on the carpet" for daring to criticise the one in com mand? As a general rule we find Holbrook men who employ help are very thoughtful of them. But occasionally we hear of a man who is ac tually so blind to his own in terests as to refuse to accept a good suggestion from an employe. He appears to feel that it he did so it would, in a way, show that someone knew as much about the business as he does. That hateful thing called "pride" is usually back of this. It is a good idea to re member that there .is still a.- lot of truth in the old state ment that two heads are bet ter than one. And it is also very well to try and be big enough to accept with thanks a gocd suggestion from any one, whether they work for 7ou or not, and to show that ou know how to appreciate the interest of anyone who takes an interest in your business affairs and your business success. The really big men of this country today owe a large .oart of their success to sug gestions and examples se cured by others, which they were smart enough to take ip and use in connection with their own -ideas. times at bit. Both pla3ed er rorless ball. You pays your money and you lakes your choieo. Hitchcock cif the mound was good, but not good enough HOLBROOK, The BASE BALL On the local ball grounds last Sunday was staged a ball game almost as good as anything staged on any pre vious occasion. Again it was the II B's and the Scrubs. Some wag designated the H B's the 'Home Brewers" and it stuck throughout the game. Umpires were changed of tener than pitchers, umps evidently not being able to stand the gaff. A good crowd was in attendance. . The Score: Scrubs: 12. H. B's: 5. MISTAKES IN PRINT Let a man make a mistake in his conversation, or even in a letter he may have ad dressed to you, and you pay little attention to it. But let the same mistake appear in a newspaper and it sticks out like a sore thumb it seems to stand right out above everything else in the paper. We 11 venture to say there are not a half-dozen Holbrcok citizens who have the least idea of the vast number of metal pieces contained in a single column of a newspap er. But there are hundreds of pieces to each column, and the displacement or a single one of these usually means an error. When this is con sidered you get a pretty gocd idea of how easy it is to make a mistake in print. And yet, considering that there are more chance for making a mistake on a single page of a newspaper than there is in writing a hundred letters, the newspaper possibly con tains fewer errors than any other form of written or printed communication. It might be a good ideo, ítycu are among those who can't understand why an occasi onal mistake creeps into the paper, to' drop around to a newspaper office sometime have this explained for your benefit. FOURTH OF JULY CORN IS INVENTED Chicago, 111. After three years of experiment, Professor William Wood burn, of the Northwe.-tern University, has produced red, white and blue corn by crossing the red and white cars to rr.ahc blue ears end then grafting the three varieties. The professor as serts that he will be able to perfect the corn so that the rows of kernels will show solid bars of red, white and blue. CUTWOKMS DESTROY GRAIN' IN MONTANA AND COLORADO The pale western cutworm is again present in destructive numbers in Montana Mid Colorado, according to reports to the Bureau of Entomology, United States Department of Agri culture. In Montana it is estimated that from 10 to 75 per cent of the small grain will be destroyed in the counties infested, and in Colorado thousands of acres are being plowed up and reseeded to a catch crop. NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA End of a Perfect L. D- S. RELIEF SOCIETY WILL STAGE PLAY. On Saturday, the 23rd of July, the ladies of the Relief Society will put on a three act play, entitled, An "Old Fashioned Mother." The best talent, in Holbrook will take part In the play and it promises to be a treat to all who attend." . The play centers around a boy who left a comfortable home and good parents, to go out into the world, and who, later forgetful of the teachings of ..his mother, takes up the habit of drink and is picked up in the gut ter. The rest of the story will be seen in the play. o STATE LAND COMMISSIONER KUCIILER VISITS FLAG. State Land Commissioner Rudolph Kuehler, of Phoenix, is in Flagstaff this week meeting with the state farm bureau and the conventions of the slate cattle and wool growers which convene this morning at the Orpheum theatre. In speaking of the land question, Commissioner Kuehler said: "The affairs of the state land office are gradually being straightened out and all of the old questions settled as fast as it is possible to get to them. Just how to segregate the monies amount ing to over $600,000 received under the old administration, which should have been applied on the accounts of the different state institutions, but which were loaned out on farms, is one of the hard questions to solve. The state and counties to which this mon ey should have gone, are paying 8 per cent interest on money while the loans made by the state only draw 6 per cent. As a consequence the counties are still levying taxeS for money to pay old bonded indebtedness while the funds are loaned out; funds which should have been distributed to ihe proper funds after the sale or lease of the lands given, the state by the government for those specified pur poses. It would work' a great hard ship to withdraw these loans at the present time, even if such a thing were possible. "While I am thoroughly convinced that the money received from lands set aside to pay off the old bonded indebtedness of Coconino and other counties for the old railroad bond is sue, it seems they are tied up by legal technicalities which I hope will soon he ?c'.t!ed," he declared. o CATTLE SHIPPED TO PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION A shipment of 1500 head of cattle, the third this spring, has been made by the Coburn Brothers Cattle com pany fiom Cordes siding, south of Prercott, to South Dakota. From the Verde section, from the Wingfiold, Lester Clayton and Fain & Murdock herds, a shipment of 1000 head has been made to the Blaney Land and Cattle company for gr?.zing on rang es in Michigan. The prices paid were $22.50, 533.50 and $43.50, the best known this season for range stock. Jlcavy shipments also have been made to Buffalo, Wyo. The demand for feeders is active, mainly for shipment to distant eastern and northern points. July 15, 1921 D Day The Limelight Question. "What is your name?' Answer. ''Chas. Osborne." ""Where were you bom?" "Granbury, Texas." "What is your age?" "Thirty-Five." "What is your business?" "Postmaster." "What is the extent of your educa tion?" "High School." "Marri;d or single?" "Married." "Why?" "Leap Year." "What was your boyhood ambi tion?" "R. R. Engineer." "What do you think of life?" "Best there is." "How is business?" "Good." FOREST SERVICE DEPLORES WASTE IN WOOD TURNING The Forest Service of the United States Department of Agriculture recommends a more intelligent use of timber after it is grown. Forest con servation deals with the utilization of wood in the sawmill or factory, as well as with its production in the forest. There is just as much conservation in making twice as many ax handles out of the same amount of wood as there is in doubling the amount of wood grown on a particular area. Investigations made by the Forest Service have shown that in logging and manufacturing an average tree but 33 per cent of its total volume, including limbs and' bark, is actually realized as seasoned rough lumber. Taking rough lumber as the starting point, only 95 per cent of it reaches the final manufactured form in plan ing mills and sash and door factor ies; and but 75 per cent of it appears as finished parts in the manufacture of furniture and vehicles. There is probably no wood-using industry in the United States in which there is a greater need of working out ways and means of saving raw material than the manufacture of turned products. Iri certain instances, 2 tons of hick ory stock a high grade material rap idly becoming scarce yielded but 400 pounds of finished handles. , The Forest Service is encouraging the drive launched by wood-turning manufacturers for standardizing the raw material, reducing waste, and ex tending the timber supply. POSTMASTER BEGINS " TERM IN U. S. PRISON -With the contingent of federal pris oners who started from Phoenix for the penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kans., was Lon R. Bailey, former postmaster of Bisbee, his alleged ac complice, Matt Keaton, and three other prisoners. The prisoners were under a guard of U. S. officers. Bailey, who plciuled guilty to having arranged a robbery of the Bisbee post office on April 3, was sentenced to six years in the prison. Keaton, who confessed to having assissted Bailey in stealing $40,000 from the post office, was sentenced to five years. , i ! "CTIVn fin nm nr rninirmi Washington, July 15. Tha every patriotic person should do his part to count eract foolish talk and insid íous influences and should stand up and be counted." was the assertion of Howard Elliott, Chairman of the Ex ecutive Committee of the Northern Pacific Railway, in an address on the Fortieth anniversary of his gradúa tion from Harvard. Taking this as a text, the Republican Publicity Association, thro ugh its President, Hon. Jonathan Bourne, Jr., has the following comment to make: "This is another way of expressing the sentiment voiced by Chairman John T. Adams, of the Republican National Committee, when he said recently, 'Politics is 1 1 1 - M cne arc ana science oi gov ernment, in a republic like ours it is the noblest occupa tionof citizenship and he who. withholds himself from its activities is a peacetime slacker. "The citizen of sound principles and good purpose who remains inactive in form ing public opinion and shap ing public policies," contin ues the Association, "may not be a positively bad citi zen but he is far from a good citizen. He is properly characterized by Mr. Adams as a 'peacetime slacker.' "There are no inactive citizens among the Social ists, the I. W. W., the Bol shevists. They are propag andists one and all, working in season and out of season to add converts to their ranks and hasten the time when there shall be either a peaceful or a violent revolu tion for the overthrow of the United States Govern ment. They are not afraid to 'stand up and be count ed.' "As Mr. Elliott very ap propriately pointed out in his address at Harvard, the United States has made mar velous development in the forty years since he received his diploma. The popula tion of the country has more than doubled; the wealth of the country has been multi plied ten-fold; the railroad mileage has been quadrup led, many of the cities of the West which were of small consequence in 1880 are now centers of great . industrial and commercial importance numbering their inhabitants by the hundreds of thou sands. As Mr. Elliott said: "With this has come in creased comfort, conven ience and luxury for the people; many inventions have produced improved health, and sanitary living conditions as well. Great attention has been given to charitable and educational work.... And yet, some hu man relations are not right. We are in turmoil when we should be a happy nation working together for the good of all. There is a spir it of unrest, of discontent, of extravagance, of idleness, of expected perfection and impatienee when we should remember that perfection and success are not immed- ioolv TOitl-iin nnp's orracn What are called radicalism, socialism, sovietism and bol shevism are advocated, and too many peop'e who should know better than lend a re ceptive ear t6 those foolish yet dangerous doctrines and thus encourage the ignorant, the thoughtless . ana the wicked.' "Because of that tendency to 'fly to evils that we know not of,' Mr. Elliott appeals to the more thoughtful and far seeing people of the T T - 1 1 J J 1 unitea states io inculcate in Vol. 13, No.-13 FLYNN IN ACCIDENT LOSES BOTH FEET A freight train crushed both feet of O. T. Flynn Tuesday of this week at a station just the other side of Flagstaff. Flynn it seems was cross ing the track when the train backed up faster than he ex pected. The conductor on the freight tied tight band ages around each leg to stop the flow of blood and started to Flagstaff with him. At the hosDital. in Flap- staff it was found necessary to amputate one foot just below the ankle and the other just above the ankle. Owing to the loss of blood there is some doubt as to whether he will recover. Martin Hamilton u d o n hearing of the accident went to Flagstaff to do what he could for the wounded man. Mohave County Miner. o ELKS IN PLAY Several of the local Elks attended the fete tendered to the Baltimore B. P. O. E. by the Winslow lodge. The Winslow BEST PEO PLE, with no little success, attempted a revival of the "wild and wooly." The re production was enhanced by the attendance of costumed Navajo Indians. Bronco busting, calf roping, bull dogging, and other stunts were pulled. Good feeling was built up . in the exchange of souvenirs, the Winslow presentation be ing a piece of petrified wood, highly polished, in the form of an elks tooth. Baltimore responded with an engraved sterling silver plaque mount ed on rosewood. The en graving commemorated a very happy time given Balti more Dodge No. 7 by Wins- ow Lodge No. 536.

Lets go! o - , OIL TO THE RESCUE ' J The miner's union strike f to force national ownership of British coalmines has had the effect of directing the flow of oil from all over the world to Great Britian. . Coal is being discarded in the merchaht marine, the navy and manufacturing, and as a direct result of the strike large supplies of oil are being imported into Eng land. For four months ending May first England imported 150,000,000 gallons oil, com pared with 86,700,000 gal- Ions for same period in 1920. Third week in Mav oil im ports were, 26,000,000 gal lons. It seems as if the strike has been ruinous to the coal industry and to the miners. A cheaper and better fuel is taking the place of coal, just as better and more efficient labor methods are taking the place of the strike-wrecked ' unions. the minds of the young the purpose 'to hold steadfastly to those good old common sense principles of hard work, - patience, courage, thrift, and consideration for. the other fellow, rather than to follow the will-o'-the-wisp of half-baked and fallacious the oríes.'
