TnTQ) Ira MEWS SINGLE CUPIfcS TEN CENTS TRADE AT HOMEWEEK MAY 22-27 Give Your Home Town Merchant-and Yourself-A Square Deal LARGE EIGHTH GRADE CLASSGRADUATES On Tuesday evening ' the Eighth Grade held their graduation exercises in the High School Gym. There were nineteen graduates this year. The program was un usually good. The two honor orations were delivered by Dora Lopez and Roy Woods. A song rendered by Miss Norma Divelbess met with great appreciation from the audience. The graduating class pre sented Mrs. Rees with a beautiful gold wrist watch as a token of their regard. It is highly prized by Mrs. Rees. WILL THEY NAME THEM GASOLINE AND KEROSENE There is rejoicing in' the house of Durfee. Up to this week the childish pop ulation of the family of the Adamana Oil driller has been made up entirely of girls-two of them-who of course, are an rigm in meir way, especially since women have the vote, but do not fill the place in a man's heart that a bouncing husky boy can occupy. At least this what you gather from most men's expressed opin ions . although vin actual practise it is usually the girls of the family who can twist "dad" round their rose leaf fingers. But all this was changed in the Durfee family and great is the rejoicing, for the childish population has been doubled and now there are four little folks in the house, and the last two that Monsieur the Stork delivered are boys. ' Both babies are doing well and their mother is convalescing. This is the first pair of twins to arrive in Holbrook for some years ana we are an putted up over it. bince they came from an "oil family" will they call them ''Gasoline and Kerosene" or "Zeroline and Polarine?"

FLANIGAN -Home merchants and home business men and manufacturers and home farmers are the people who contribute directly to the prosperity and development of the state. More business for them means more em ployment, more invested capital. And more invested capital means more taxable property and lower indivi dual taxes. Better business means more money for everybody. You gain nothing by trad ing away from home. You help yourself by trading at home. ' There is no choice, once you consider it. For these reasons the Arizonr Industrial Congress urges that every citizen of the state observe "iraae at Home" Buy Products" week by at home and using Arizona trading Arizona products exclusively during the week of May 22nd to 27th. Doing it for one week means doing it per manently. It is a lasting service which we can do for home towns and our home state-and incidentally our selves. SCHOOL NOTES The concert given on Stunt Night was greatly ap preciated. The skill shown by the violinist and the one who tinkled the mandolin brought spontaneous ap plause. The Spanish dance was also a tavorue. it is said that this same com pany will return next term of school and give us a com plete program. The exhibits of school work shown this week at both the schools and the en tertainments provided by them were well attended by patrons of the school. The teachers all left this week. Miss Arnot, Miss Anderman and Miss Cristy, all went to Albuquerque where they reside, and where they will take courses in the University of New Mexico during the summer. Mrs. O'Neal and Miss Hop kins will make a short stop at Albuquerque on their way to Greeley Colorado. Miss Hopkins will take summer course at the Colo rado Teacher's College. Miss Guard leaves Saturday for Berkley. Mr. Skaggs left Thursday by auto for his home in Warrensburg, Mo. He will be accomp anied as far as Trinidad by Mr. Jahns, the efficient janitor at the High School Mesdames Carter, Rees, and bnoJgrass will remain i;i Holbrook for the summer. A special session was held by Professor Brannigan for the reverend seniors, one where they might sing their "swan songs unmolested From the reports we judge that it was not all laughing as they all hate to leave the school where they have had such a good year. The Hi Baseball Team left for Flagstaff in cars.

Holbrook Oil Field May 19, 1922 SAFE CRACKED IN WINS LOW MONDAY NIGHT The office of the Hall Lum ber Co. was entered some time during last Monday night and the office safe was broken open and contents rifled. Luckily the sum in the safe was small, all avail able money having been banked during the day, and the burglars got less than twenty dollars for their pains. Mr. W. Q. Kelly, Deputy Sheriff informed the News that it had the look of a job done by professional safe crackers. About ten days ago the same office was en tered and a typewriter stol en.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADU ATING EXERCISES On Wednesday night the Class of '22 bid a final fare well to the school. The stage was a bower of beauty with its profusion oi pink roses. An augmented or chestra, with more fiddlers in it, as one gentleman re marked, than there used to be inhabitants in if ol brook, sent sweet music on the air. Miss Inez Truax and Morris Richards, who de livered the honor orations did full justice to their high repute in scholarship. Miss es Mow, Wallace, and Saun ders in their delightful trio and Miss Guard with her charming solo enchanted the music lovers, rrof essor Clarson of the U. of A. made a very interesting address. Then Judge Sidney Sapp in a few well chosen words delivered the coveted dip lomas to the graduates. While doing so we heard the child loving judge teli one dainty young lady that he had known her ever since she was so high, and what he measured off was barely knee-high to a grasshopper. We all take deep interest in these young people we have so intimately. Judge have known so intimately. Judge Sapp gave out one piece of inform ation from the school board which was gratifyin: to all lovers of schools, an that was to the effect that Professor Brannigan, who has done so much for the school in every line, was re turning next year to con tinue the good work.

It might have been taken straight from the pages of a Diamond Dick novel, this daylight robbery staged on the Cooley Bank last Mon day afternoon at three o'clock. A stranger, 5 ft. 10 inches in heighth, of swarthy com plexion, with a close cropped sandy mustache, and wear ing a pair of faded bib over alls, these last are a little out of the picture, rode up on horseback to the little mountain lumber town of Cooley. Straight to the Bank he went and there, with the persuasive power of an eloquent shooting iron induced the manager of the bank, Mr. R. H. H. Lucken bill to hand over the ready money in the drawer amount ing to something less than 200.00 we are given to un derstand. The manager by a facile explanation persuaded the robber that he would be un able to open the safe until the next morning when the time lock would work, al though at that very moment the safe was in no such con dition. Convinced, the man backed the manager into the vault and locked him in. After some little time Mr. Luckenbill was fortunate enough to find a screw driv er and released himself by removing the bolts. In the meantime the bank robber had run out of the building, vaulted on his horse and hie! and away! for the big timber. Shades of Nick Carter, it is ever thus in the movies. His actions aroused suspicion and upon investigation the true state of affairs was dis covered. As soon as possible posses of men from Cooley and Springerville were trailing him through the timber lad en canons and peaks south of Cooley. It developed lat er that he had an accomplice. The two were surrounded in a canon near C. C. Springs, but the man who had done the robbing escaped during the night from the almost perpendicular sides of the chasm. The other man gave himself up on Tuesday evening. It was said that there were a hundred men out searching for the robbers. Mr. Gus Becker sent sup plies of food and gas from Springerville to the watch ers. On Wednesday Mr. Haines, a forest ranger of Springer ville discovered the robber in the Blue Ranger Lookout Station which is maintained for' fire protection. The rob ber got the drop on the ranger and compelled him to give up his weapons. But upon stepping out oi tne Lookout Station he was met by John Earle and Ed Cole who told him to put up his hands. Instead of doing this he reached for his gun. It was the last move the des perate man ever made. It is not known which man fir ed the fatal shot which brought to an end this mod ern bandit tale, worthy of the most lurid pages of the dime novel. Wild and ex citing pursuits through the tangled undergrowth of the untouched forests, ambushes and picket duty with the six shooter ready for in stant use, these all mark this startling adventure. Vol 14 No. 3 BANK ROBBERY WILL RUN FOR JUSTICE OF THEPEACE Judge D. W. Easley has announced his candidacy via the columns of the Holbrook News, for the office of Just ice of the Peace in the Hol brook precinct at the coming election. Judge Easley, who is the present incumbent of the of fice, is well and favorably known to all the residents of our city, having made his home here for many years. He is highly respected and his efficiency in office merits our highest regard. PROMINENT GOVERN MENT OFFICIALS 1NHOLBR0OK Mr. Chas. H. Burke, Com. of Ind. Affairs was in Hol brook Wednesday evening. He had been making a tour of the Navajo Country and was escorted to Holbrook by Supt. Daniels of Keams Can yon. Mr. Burke was ac companied on bis western trip hy Mr. H. B. Peairs, Chief Supervisor of Ind. Schools and Mr. Roberts. In spector. Mr. Chas. L. Davis, Supt. of the Ft. Apache Ind. Res. met the party in Holbrook and took them out to White river. While in Holbrook the Commissioner held a con sultation with stock permit tees who have range on the reservation. CITY WATER TANK WILL BE CEMENTED SOON Mayor Chas. Cooley in forms us that action is ex pected soon in the matter of fixing the big cement water tank on the hill which was found to leak when water was forced into it from the well. The delay has been caus ed by the wait necessary to convince the contractor that the work must be done satisfactorily and the tank turned over in good condi tion before the city would accept the job as complete. We are glad that the coun cil has dealt with the mat ter in this manner and sav ed the taxpayers the extra expense that would have been incurred otherwise. Mr. Duerr of El Paso and Mr. Orman of Denver held a consultation this week and sent word that materials were on the way for repairs. The walls are not cracked and the trouble seems to be principally at the joining of the base and the side walls, however the entire structure will be water proofed with cement thru out. As soon as this is accom plished the tank frill be fill ed, as the rest of the plant is in working order and then the water will be turn ed into the mains. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Jaques were down from their Lake side ranch home about the middle of the week. Cooley is a very restful and quiet spot ordinarily, but this week it has had melo drama that would put the silver sheet to shame.
