Sweeney for salary as Justice of the Peace ctt Winslow from and including January. 1921. to and including March, 1922, were deferred until our next regular meeting. On account of complaints being made to the Board of Supervisors to the effect that the accounting, in the Winslow School District, for the school funds is defective, the Board ordered a special examination of the records. In order to make the examination as thorough as possible the County School Superintendent was asked for a special report cover ing her official services from Januarv 1st. 1921, to March 31st. 1922. The Clerk was ordered to place the name of Mrs. B. Cooper on the County pension list and send her a monthly allowance of S15.00. The County Attorney was empowered to employ additional counsel to assist him in obtaining the extradition of the men indicted in connec tion with the failure of the Holbrook State Bank, at the last Grand Jury session. The following resolution submitted by the Flagstaff Chamber cf Commerce was unanimously adopted: RESOLUTION WHEREAS, our State Engineer. Thomas Maddock. states in a letter of January 30, 1922, that he opposes the road between Holbrook and Lnp ton on the grounds that no State or County funds are available for th construction of this road, and advocates a detour about 78 miles longer by way of Springerville and Magdalena to Albuquerque, and easterly points, and WHEREAS, the original route of the Old Trails National Highway thru Arizona and New Mexico following the stliortest line via Gallup New Mexico, connecting with the primary road system (f New Mexico, along the shortest location posnible for this Tranncontiniental road, and WHEREAS, it is a matter of common knowledge that the routing of thi.l road via Springerville is subservient to special and private inter ests, making a long and expensive detour for through travel, and WHEREAS, we believe that the final cost of completing the road along the long deviation proposed by our State Engineer, Mr. Maddock, will greatly exceed the cost of making this hort and much needed con nection between Holbrook, Arizona, and Gallup, New Mexico, and WHEREAS, the Counties of Navajo and Apache, Arizona, have made the Board of Co.

This being the date set for the final hearing for the proposed changes in the Holbiook-Adamaua to secure a shorter line and higher ground the Board unanimously adopted the following resolution: WHEREAS, the petition of ten or more resident taxpayers of Navajo County. Arizona, praying for the establishment of a public road as pro vided by the laws of the State of Arizona, and asking that portion of the road lying between Holbrook and Adamana be altered as follows: Beginniug at the Northwest corner of section 32, Township IS N.

The Board appointed the following viewers to view out the pro posed road and report to the Board at their next regular meeting: V. D. Smith. Acting County Engineer. John W. Adair and George Woolford. The Board proceeded to divide the County into three Supervisoral Districts as provided for in Chapter 45. of the 1921 Session Laws of Ari zona. The division was made as nearly equal as possible considering the population and assessed valuations and was as follows: All of the County lying outside of the Winslow School District and north of the southern boundary of Snowfiake School District No. 5, with a population of 2500 and assessed valuation of $5,702,298.00 to be known as District number One. The Winslow School District No. 1 with a population of 3730 and assessed valuation of $3,842,898.00 to be known as District No. Two. All of the balance of the County lying south of the southern bound try of Snowfiake District No. 5 with an estimated population of 2225 and assessed valuation of $2,601,000.00 to be known as District No. Three. Chairman Owens was granted permission to leave the State for n period of thirty days. The Treasurer was ordered to refund W. E. Shumway $2.50 on ac count of a refund he made to J. J. Marshall from whom he collected poll tax in error, Marshall being under age. The Treasurer was ordered to give receipts' in full for the 1914. 1915. 1916 and 1917 taxes of J. S.

Clerk is leading a double life. The following is an article appearing in The Albuquerque Morning Jour nal. We quote. "Miss Olive Clarke of Little Rock, Ark., has the distinct ion of being the first woman sheriff of her state. She is considered indispensible in handling woman prison ers. She carries a gun, wears sheriff's badge and makes arrests just like the rest of the force. We are sorry that we can not reproduce the picture which accompanies the art icle, but wish to assure our reader that in looks as well as other qualities the home grown product is by tar the best.

FORD CARS HAS MANY REFINEMENTS Body and Mechanical Im provements Meet Public Approval Ford cars are better today than they ever have been be fore, since fuel consumption is lower; the engine is even more efficient than formerly; improvements in the springs and steering apparatus in sure easier riding and driv ing qualities; a new head lamp lens, which complies with all state laws, improves the road light; and that many other minor better ments have been made. Ford pistons and connect ing rods have been re-designed and are matched for weight before assemblingin to motors. This reduces vibration and gives the motor a quicker pick-up. The new pistons weigh three-quarters of a pound less than those formerly used. A highly polished crank shaft bearing surface also reduces wear and, added to the piston and connecting rod improve ments, insures a smoother running and balanced motor. The material used in the Ford crankshaft and the care and precision in its manu facture make it second to none. The new Ford carburetor gives increased acceleration. Though not radically differ ent from the" carburetor pre viously used, the new con struction improves the all around performance cf the motor, giving it a quicker pick-up and a greater flexi bility of action. The wiring system has been completely re-designed and while its costs more to install than the old system, is most efficient, proof of which is evidenced by the fact that it affords a fire in surance rate as low as the higher prices cars on the market. Many other changes have been made: A 16 inch steer ing wheel is now standard equipment; Timken roller bearings are used in the front wheels; one-piece pres sed steel running-board brackets insure body rigidity and eliminate vibration and. body noises; a dash weather trough prevents rain from reaching coil terminals or dash wiring; the steering mechanism has also been improved; and the tools sup plied to purchasers of Ford cars have also been improv ed in quality. Another im portant improvement in the truck chassis is the adoption of cord tires as standard equipment on the rear wheels MOTORS TO MAGMA Mr. and Mrs. Henry Scorse left last week for a trip to their ranch properties at Magma, near Florence. They went overland, and will be gone for a week or ten days. All our people seem to be stricken with what we might call "southern fever", and are trekking down for a short stav.
