THE HOL Official Paper of Navajo County and the Holbrook Oil Field SINGLE COPIES TEN CENTS El Paso Clothing Salesmen Marooned in Snow. Ears and Feet Frostbitten. Sufferers Rescued by Indians The general conception o fv Arizona is a place of cacti, rat tleanakes. Jast. and heat, heat and more heat. But there are two clothing salesmen from El Paso who will freely and emph atically state that it is the snow feat coldest spot on the habit able globe, thus disproving tra dition. During last weeks cold Enap, while traveling from Reams Canyoa to Na ha-tee Canyon their car bacame disabled and they were obliged to remain for several days at the latter place Glen Heward picked them up at this spot and their story from them oa was to say the least, full of incident. It took 12 ga'lons cf gas to make 41 miles over such heavy roads. Fourteen miles from Hol brook, out of gas. they found an Indian camp and sent a mes senger in to town for help. Too close contact with the campfire burned their shoe roles and turned a slight case of frost bite into tha real article. Both men ported cauliflower ears of un precedented size after their ex perience, and only one was able to continue his journey immedia tely. . Mr. E, Cietseway ar.d Mr. M. Silverman are the gentlemen who will in the future, be glad to testify that Arizona is not all sand and heat, but sometimes enow and cold. ACE AND THIMBLE CLUB The last meeting of the Ace and Thimble Club was held at the home of Mrs. Holcomb. There were pre sent enough ladies to keep three card tables warm. And they did it. More good candy was consumed during the afternoon than it would take to run a small confectionery store for a week. . . At the end of the after noon's session at cards the dub went into a brief ex ecutive meeting and decided to give a dance on the 18th of February for the benefit of the . school gymnasium. The tickets will be $1.00 plus .10 cents war tax. All part icipants are requested to ap pear in overalls or aprons. There will be good music, and during the evening box es of candy will be disposed of to the highest bidders. The candy will be made by the different members of the club, and if it is of the same brand that is served at their afternoon affairs, the editor can vouch for its delicious ness. Everybody come out and help the ladies of the club in their effort to buy suitable equipment for the athletic department of the school. Buy a ticket when the solicitor comes along!

BASKET BALL PLAYERS HAVE SUCCESSFULL EVENING Last Friday night, the fans were served a feast in the fcrm of .two lane score games, in both of which the home team was on the long end. The Highbchool boys from Gallup were good, clean sportsmen, but they were outclassed. The local lads seemed to score at will, and any time the coal town team managed to reach the bask et, it was a relief to the spectators. Individual mention must be made of the clever pass ing of Louis Divelbess to Georga Hastings and vice versa, the eaua with which Fraser scored from any and every position, tne guard work of Joe Woods and the general all-round good work Arnold Lee, rnis in spue of his sprained ankle. The official score was 07 to 10, which by the way, was a much larger score than the Albuquerque Hi were able to defeat the same team. The game between the Winslow Elks and the Hol brook town team furnished no little amusement. Again the local team was too strong for it's opponents, but the Winslow Best People took the defeat in good part. One of the rail road town boys was recovering from a ser ious accident on the football field, and in the second half was unable to continue. As there was no spare, the game was called off with the score standing 62 to 15 in favor of Holbrook. lhis uig score was made through team work, and more team work. As usual, Tommy and Chas. Hathorne were instrumental in the scoring. Dee De Witt's long drawn out body surely helped to fool the Winslow lads. It was either three or four lights he knocked out while jumping for the ball. Speck "Finnegan" was al ways on the job. and Tommy Isaacson played a dandy game. Let's stack these boys up against a real tough team. Mr. D. Hays, the manager of thB Brundaee ranch at Pmta, was in Holbrook on Saturday. Mrs. Jennings and child ren drove up to Snowflake on Friday afternoon. The weather was rather cold, but had no terrors for the lady in question as she drove her closed car. HOLBROOK, "If" stop -Look- Listen If I i : . .

The best suggestion one can make for overcoming this condition is to have hot lunches put into the schools or milk at recess for those badlv underweight and the teaching of health habits. Surely a well qualified school nurse or "Community" nurse would be an immense help in meeting the local needs." The above is Miss de Gomez unbiased opinion of the state affairs that confront all the parents and the public at large that are interested in the welfare of the coming generation.

All the cattlemen of Arizona are urged to be present and take part in the meeting. The convention is being advertised among the buy ers of Arizona cattle, a large number of whom will be present at, the meeting and will, in all probability, be in position to contract steers for spring delivery. The cattlemen who have cattle for sale for spring delivery will therefore find it to their great advantage to come to the meeting and talk- with, these buyers. Problems of tremendous importance affecting the cattlemen of Arizona are to be considered. An immedi ate reduction in freight rates and taxes is of the utr most importance, as well as measures looking toward an increase in the consumption of meat. Steps toward re lieving the financial condi tion of the livestock interest will be taken. A new Con stitution for our Association will be considered. A com mittee has been appointed by the Arizona Wool Grow - ers' Association to confer with our members at the convention on a possible consolidation of the two As- be on the program, sociations. Matters relat-j It is to your interest and ing to grazing on the Nat-; the interests of your Associ ional Forests -will be discuss- ation that you make every ed. The big question of im- j effort to attend this conven broved conditions of mark- tion. Your business needs eting our cattle will feature a part of our proceedings. We also have interesting things to discuss on tariff and public domain grazing, on the activities of our As sociation during the past year and on the convention of the National Association. Mr. Fred H. Bixby, re cently elected President of the American National Live Stock Association, will ad dress the convention and take part in the proceed ings. Mr. Dwight B, Heard who attended the Agricult ural Conference at Wash ington, will speak on the ac omplishments of that con ference. Mr. P. G. bpilsbury President of the recently formed Arizona Industrial Congress, will also address the convention, and other Vol 13 No. 41 Four former residents this county are dead as of the result of a collision between a passenger train on the Arizona Eastern, and the automobile in which they were riding. The fatal ac cident occured at Websters Crossing, near Globe. The dead: Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Hatch of Ashurst, Arizona, Mrs. E.T. Bryoe of Ashurst, Arizona, Andrew Brown of Fort Thomas, Arizona. The party was returning from church at Thatcher, last Sunday morning. The driver, Dewey; Bryce, was the only member to escape injury. He was driving the car, and on seeing the rapid ly approaching train, jump ed to safety. The Hatches were very well known here. Mr. Hatch was one of a large family, all of whom were raised in this county, and many of his immediate family are still resident in s Woodruff and Snowflake. Andrew Brown leaves many relatives and friends to mourn his untimely end, his closest relative being his father who is , working for Senator W. A. Saunders at Springerville. Mrs. Bryce also was well known in this neighbourhood. An accident as terrible as this one. certainly should call the attention of the rail ways to the necessity for policing or guarding the blind grade crossings. Some method, of prevention of similar accidents must be de. vised for the --.immediate future. ; ' " ' SUPERV1SORAL DISTRICTS Under existing laws, the Board of Supervisors, at its regular meeting in April, must divide Navajo County into three supervisoral dis trics. To ;the News, i t seems that the task is an easy one, as the locations of the various town almost make three-natural division. The town of Winslow should constitute one district, St. Joseph, Holbrook, Woodruff, Reams Canyon," and Heber would make a " second dis trict, and the rest of the county could be included in 1 the third district. Anyway, ' the News has confidence in the present Board of Super- visors and feels certain that tha divisions made will be fair and equitable and just, ' speakers of prominence will the Association, and the As sociation needs you at con vention time in formulating its policies and in wielding its fullest influence. No greater benefit can be gain ed by the cattlemen than through an expenditure of the time and money necess ary to attend our convent ion this year at Globe on February 23rd and 24th. Henry G. Boice Acting President, Arizona Cattle Growers Association J. Henry Webb of Pine dale is visiting his sister, Mrs. O.C. Williams. C.A. Gardner came dewn from Cocley Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. M.H.
