The demands of John L. 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

Coolev. 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

On account of the Treasurer objecting to collecting taxes by partial
payment, as he could not issue a receipt until they were palid in full,
the Partial Payment Account amounting to several thousand dollars was
turned over to the County Attorney, with instructions that he furnish
au additional bond in the sum of two thousand dollars.

LEADING DOUBLE LIFE
We were somewhat sur
prised to learn certain facts
about Miss Olive Clarke but
will pass them on to our
readers and let them form
their own opinion as to
whether or not our Deputy
Co. 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.

way residence during the
