Ol'B STANDARD Right, Truth, Justice in all our dealings with the public: political, social and industrial; a ser.ce of responsibility to our constituen cy and our loyalty to the interests of Holbroolr and Navajo county. Roasting a Rooster He wasn't much of a rooster when it came to looks. In fact his legs were scaly and warty, his comb bore bloody evidence of past battles and his neck was covered with rough and unkempt feathers. But he had a certain cocksureness, if we may be pardoned the phrase, of man ner that rather ingratiated him with the casual observer. For several days he had been haunting the newspaper premises. He would peer in at the dusty windows of the dim little editorial sanctum with much neck craning and such an air of preternatural wisdom that it was imposs ible to smother a lurking grim at the feathered oddity's inquisitiveness. There it was that we made our first mistake, no gentleman likes to be laughed at and he re sented our levity. Then there was his crow, his challenge of defiance, clarion-tongued, it would beat upon the air and some times ruffle nerves already a-tingle with the rumbling of the busy press. But in spite of his loud-voiced bravado we were rather more than half inclined to accord him a heartv welcome, when one warm sDriner afternoon he boldly stepped through the open door and essayed an ex ploration tour of the darkened interior. With head held slightly prancing step, he sidled mincingly across the press room With a Quizzical eve he inspected the floor and with alf the gustatory glee of a confirmed gourmand began to pick at the stray bits of rubbish and linograph, scraps of paper, unregarded spaces and type that had slipped from busily working fingers, an odd piece of string, a tiny piece of hardened metal, all by some alchemy of chicken imagination were transformed into edible food and sent hurrying down a scrawny gullet to find a resting place within his And ever as he roamed and talked to himself with sorry for the old chap and had about come to the conclus sion that it wa3 our Christian duty to go into the shop next door and exchange a little of our hard earned silver for some bread and give the old fellow a treat. We went to the press room door to talk it over with Chanticleer before providing the treat, and to get his opinion as to whether he would like some bread crumbs or would prefer a few meat scraps garnished with some wilted lettuce leaves on the side as a fitting dish for his spring menu. But alas, and alack! What was our reception? .We had made a most serious mistake. He did not like us. In fact he most pointedly disliked us. He evidently be longed to the same printer's union as did the members of the press room and consented to fraternize with them upon equal terms. But as for the lone tenant of the edi torial cubby-hole that was another matter. Sir Chanticleer ruffled up his dingy feathers in grand disdain. Before we could realize what was happening we were met by an infuriated avalanche of wildly flutt ering feathers armed with the sharpest beak and claws it has ever been our misfortune to meet. We were com pelled to take refuge in ignominious flight while the press room force, too weak with laughter to do anything but lean up against the furniture and howl with glee, looked on. Now we ask you, was that a dignified positon for a "stylish stout" editor? Besides our feelings as well as our skin were lacerated. We had, with the best inten tions in the world, started out to do a good deed and we had been cruelly snubbed, not to mention the fact that we had lost several layers of epidermis from the region of our ankles by the beak and claw onslaught. So much for good intentions. And the moral is well come to think of it, there isn't any but this. We are going to call down a black curse on Chanticleer's head this very day and wish him a speedy journey to the soup kettle or the stew pot. His epitaph will be "He was a tough Old Bird."

Club and a few additional friends on Friday last. Nine tables were prepared for the pasteboard fray and all were filled with eager participants One of the high spots -of the evening was Mr. Henning's exhibi tion of old time pictures showing Holbrook as she was thirty years ago. The pictures were not only of things but of people and elicited great merriment from some who were pre sent, in commenting on some of the photographs Mr. Woods said that his was "Taken when he was free and untrammeled, before he was married, and that all the men ought to band together to keep from los ing their pristine beauty." Mr.Henning has in ad dition to the pictures a very large collection of old Hoi brook newspapers in a fine state of preservation. Need less to say that the assem bled guests inspected these authentic voices of the old en times with great glee. . Some delicious h o m made chocolates together with cigarettes and opera size cigars filled a pleasant intermission between card games. At the end of the Auc tion Bridge session the hostess served an ample and aDDetiziner two course lunch. After the guests had demolished the sub stantial refreshments Mrs Henning supplied favors of daintv fnneed baskets of candy for the women and animal balloons and squawk- ers for the men. You would have thought irom the noise that ensued it was New Year's Eve. But one and all had a most delightful lime and voted the A. and T. Club even ings a continued success GO TO JMUMWAY Judge and Mrs. D. W. Easley motored up to Shum way to spend the week end, leaving Holbrook in their car on baturday.
