Babbitt Brothers have ob

from the U. S. government
for store and amusement
privileges at Grand Canyon,
and Albert C. Martin, of Los
Angeles, the architect who
designed the Flagstaff post

the plans. The building will

but neither the size nor the
exact location is known at
the local Babbitt offices. P.
J. Moran said that he believ
ed David Babbitt Sr., who
is now on the coast, knows
tb.e details, but they had not
been decided UDon until re-
cently, waiting for the ver
diet of the landscape engi
neers in charge of Grand
Canyon National park im
provements. The new building will in
clude mercantile rooms and
a theatre, the latter to be
used mostly for moving pic
tures. It is likely that a re
frigerating plant will be in
stalled. The details are bé
ing worked out by George
A. Spellmire, of Williams,
who has general charge of
the plans. Coconino Sun.

Staple Issues That Have
Overlooked
Been
General advice is no ad
vice at all. What investors
want is" specified particulars
ine stockmarket has now
recorded about three weeks
of ' advancing prices, and
though prices in general are
above recent quotations,
. i .i-i
tnere are still some issues
which have not been favor
ed. The stability in their
prices is not indicative of
unattractiveness; rather
does it prove that investors
prefer following a leader to
being the pioneer,
We refer to bonds like the
following: -
Price Yield '
Cuba Cane 7b 1930 . ,
. 62 12.00 per c
Chinese Railway 5s, 1951 49
Italian (Us, 1925 89

St.Louis& San Francisco, '
Inc., 6s, 1950 .... 60 10.40 "
Sinclair Consolidated Oil
Co. 7i per cent, 1925 93 9.63
The Bonds suggested above
are all highly secured with the
possible exception of the Cuba
Cane 7s. This Band, however,
should soon begin to reflect the
improving financial condition,
not only of the company, but of
Cuba as well. An investor who
purchases this list: should be well
able to sit back and feel that he
is receiving an average yield of
10.54 per cent on his investment
and in addition the future should
hold substantial enhancement in
price, writes Sugarman'a Indi
cator. IMPORTANT FIELD WORK
Thomas C. Mills, the super
visor of drilling for the Taylor
interests, has been actively en
gaged for the past week in mak
ing the neceBsary survey for the
proposed wells, and also making
preparations for the erection of
the derrick, timbers for which
have been ordered by telegraph
from Los Angeles, through the
Cooley Lumber Company, and
are expected to arrive in about
ten days.
HOLBROOK, NAVAJO COUNTY. ARIZONA
COMPASS NEEDED
W. E. Ferguson5 and Ed.
Foster took Ed gar Lové
ridge of Prescott with them
on the hunt for deer. Mr.
Loveridge became seperated
from his companiDns and
failed to put in an appear
ance at camp o!i Sunday
evening. After waiting all
night for him to return,
"Fergy" phoned the sheriff's
office. A posse was author
ised from Snowflake to
find the Receiver in Bank
ruptcy, not' that Navajo
County is likely to need him
again, but he's a right nice
man. Before thft posse act
ually' "got" started, t h e
sheriff's office received a
message stating that Mr.
Loveridge had returned, to
the fold. Moral, city fellars
bring guides. ,
FIRST DEER OF SEASON
To Henry Hays and Mike
Kells we award the asbestos
hot water bottles for bring
ing in the first deer of the
season.. It was of good size,
about 110 pounds dressed,
and had four pointed ant
lers. The deer was shot a
bout a mile off the Payson
road south of Winslow. The
happy hunters returned to
Holbrook Sunday evening
last.
Frozen Credits Are
Thawing
Out!
J. Ogden Armour is quot
ed as saying, in a recent ad
dress, that the tide ot busi
ness has, at last, turned .for
the better. This also seems
to be, the prevailing view
point in Metropolitan bank-
mg circles, orean is once
more being made available
on terms attractive to busi
ness, and the whole country
is definitely easing up from
its long spell under 'frozen"
credits o n fundamentally
improved conditions that are
positive evidence that we
are approaching much better
times.

llS HOLBROOK TO BE CENTRE
OF AN ARTIST COLONY?
If the enthusiasm of Carl
Eytel is any criterion it will
be.
One of our most interest
ing visitors last week was
Mr Carl Eytel of Palm Spr
ings, Cal; Mr. Eytel has
spent nearly all his life in
the study and depiction -of
desert scenes. That his la
bors have not been in vain
we quote the following from
the Pasadena Star. Speak
ing of a collection exhibited
at the Shakespeare club at
Pasadena, reference is made
to some of his Arizona com
positions as follows, 'Even
ing in the Desert" with the
color note of dominance in
the rose hazed mountains,
clear against the sky, turn
ing from gold to a delicate
turquoise green of faintest
hue, is another pictorial and
thechnical gem. Like the
other paintings, this is one
which catches and holds the
eye and attention by the ar
rangement of the composing
masses of light and shadow
as well as hill and plain, with
the characteristic desert
palms in. the . left fore
ground." '
Pride in one's work is na
tural, and when that work
is sufficiently meritorious to
warrant recognition by one
of the greatest common
wealths which is part and
parcel of this great country,
the average man will freely
advertise this fact. Only by
dint of much questioning
were we able to learn that a
scene representing a part of
the desert, showing wild
palms with a distant view of
snow clad mountains, has
been used as a mural decor
ation in the State Capitol at
Sacremento, Cal.
No small feather- in Mr.
Eytel's cap was the award
of the decoration of George
Wharton James book "The
Wonders of - the Colorado
Desert."

staunch friends of the Zuni
Company, while hunting for
deer and turkey this week.
discovered a very large fos
sil bed. The important bear
ing which this geological
feature has on the oil field
so excited Mr. Rutter that
he forgot the original pur
pose of his trip and gave all
his time to tracing the ex
tent of the deposit. Literal
ly hundreds of acres in area
and from 12 to 14 feet in
depth is a very conservative
estimate. Bill found shells
of one kind or another buri
ed in both shale and lime,
and that he is no toreador is
proven by the samples he
brought with him.
DR.. AND MRS. TAYLOR
ON THE COAST
Dr. S. Earl Taylor and wife
left on Thursday for Los Ane
les for a little outing and to look
up certain business matters con
nected with the drilling of the
proposed wells.
CAPTAIN CÜSTAS TRANSFERRED
The many friends of Capt
Custas. formerly stationed
at Ft. Apache, will be extre
mely sorry to learn that he
has been transferred to the
Ordnance Proving Ground
near Baltimore, Md. The
captain Í3 to take a two year
course in the school there.
Completion of the course
will probably mean promo
tion. We extend advance
congratulations.
......... .ROAD CHANGES
County Engineer West has
been supervising the work
on the Holbrook-Gallup road
and on the Holbrook-Keams
Canyon road. A slight
change was made in the Gal
lup route, the road being
shifted to the rim instead of
on the flat, and the Keams
Canyon road will be changed
to so around the bait beeps
instead of through.

MR. HAGER WILL RETURN
It is announced that DorBey

within about two weeks, accom
panied by his wife, and that
while here he will proceed with
further geological studies under
the auspices of the Taylor inter
ests.

the portrayal of desert are
many, success is gramea
to few, and success Dome in
the thankful spirit which is
displayed by Mr. Eytel
stamps him as one of large
calibre. His appreciation oi
Holbrook is gratifying in
deed and we have pride in
having been at least partial
ly his confidant.
