The NEWS
C OF C. TO BANQUET
a u
The Chamber of Com
merce at its regular month
ly meeting took up the mat
ter of changing the hour of
its usual feed, and it was de
cided after due considera
tion that an evening hour
would be more convenient
form my than the present
noon hour.
The next social meeting
of the Chamber will be on
June the fourteenth at
seven thirtv. It was de
cided thatany one who wish
ed to do so might bring a
friend, and that the wives
of the members be especially
invited, if they care to be
present. The banquet will
be held at the Rees Cafe.
A slightly different meth
od will be used in regard to
the banquets. In the fut
ure tickets will be on sale
for the affair at most of the
business houses, and may be
purchased at any time up
until twenty four hours pre
vious to the banquet. The
tickets will be 75 cents each.
A good dinner is promised
for this sum, and by know
ing just how many there
will be to be served there
will be no loss to the cater
er. Everyone is urged to
buy his ticket early.
It was also decided that
the speaking at the future
affairs should not be a ran
dom, hit or miss thing,
which is all very well for
amusement but does not
tend to accomplishment.
The plan at present is to
choose some special subject
for every dinner and have
all speeches on this one
topic. The one chosen for
June fourteenth was "Our
Municipal Camp Ground
and each is supposed t o
state his views on the sub
ject, as to whether it should
be carried out or not, whose
special job it is etc. Plenty
of food for thought in that.
Anyone knowing anything
special about camp grounds
had better come prepared
to spill it instead of his
effee!

EVERYBODY HAD
AJjOOD TIME
Everybody did, and that
is high praise. What are we
talking about? The Elk
picnic, of course. The drive
up through the spicy pines
and fragrant served to make
one on the qui vive for the
sight of the clear blue lake
nestling among the hills, its
azure surface only slightly
ruffled by the passing breeze.
. The young people, and
some not so young, spent a
part of the morning rowing
and bathing. At 10:35 all
gathered in the pavilion to
take part in the program
which had been arranged.
The speeches were greatly
enjoyed and many laughs
testified to the crowds ap
preciation of a good joke.
At noon a most delicious
barbecue dinner was served
to all present. We wish to
state here and now that we
have at various times past
in our career tasted barbe
cued meat, but never in all
our existence have we tasted
any half as good as that
served to the Elks and their
families at Lakeside on last
Sunday. We ate so much
that we surprised everybody
who saw us, and what is
more we surprised oursel
ves. During the afternoon se
veral parties drove to Coo
ley's ranch, and from there
over to the Cooley Lumber
Mill.
The whole day was de
lightful and the Lakeside
people united in trying to
make it as enjoyable as
possible for those who came.
The Elks are to be compli
mented on another pleasant
time.
Holbrook News Notes
Mr. James Donohoe was
in town from his ranch
home near Adamana o n
Monday.
Dr. Sampson of Winslow:
came up to Holbrook on No. i
8 Monday. He said that he j
would come oftener but for
the fact that it was extreme
ly hard for such a good look
ing man to escape from
Winslow. We plainly see
that we will have to offer
the Doctor some special in
ducement to get him to pay
the county seat a visit more
often.
Mr. W. Nelson was in
from the Black Canyon Oil
Well early in the present
week.
! Mr. Walker, a government
hunter, passed through Hol
brook early this week. He
was en route to the head
waters of Chevlon. He has
fell designs against the life
of a predatory silver tip bear
that has been making life
miserable for the ranch men
in that neighborhood, by the
damage he does to their
stock. Mr. Walker has quite
a reputation as a hunter,
and we think that Mister
Bruin had better emigrate
pretty pronto if he doesn't
want to part with his fur
coat.

NEAR TRAGEDY AT
SWIMMING HOLE
On Monday afterno.on se
veral young people who were
indulging in a refreshingdip
in the waters of the Little
Colorado just above the
cement bridge, were nearly
the principals in a deplorable
tragedy.
Miss Virginia Shumway,
who was paddling about in
a deep pool supported by an
inflated inner tube from an
automobile suddenly found
herself sinking as the air
escaped from her improvised
life preserver. Miss Thelma
Bunger who was near, at
tempted to go to her rescue,
but not being able to swim
was pulled under by the
frightened girl. Then the
sister of the first girl, Miss
Velma Shumway, swam to
the pool and was also drawn
under by the fear-striken
girls. Loral Shumway, bro
ther of the girls, who was
swimming some distance a
way, was drawn to the spot
by the cries of the mother
who witnessed the accident
from the bank. By this time
the girls were so frenzied by
fear that upon his 'approach
they siezed upon him and he
was unable to extricate eith
er himself or the girls and
went under also.
Atty. T. R. Greer and Mr.
Shumway Sr., who were
dressing after their swim,
finally heard the commotion
and reaching the spot dove

i
into the water and going be
low the surface managed to
push the tangled bunch of
drowning young people into
shallow water. Then they
were able to carry the girls
and boy to the shore.
All the swimmers who had
gone under many times were
unconscious and Loral and
Velma had swallowed a
large amount of water and
were hard to revive. It was
indeed fortunate that there
was no more serious ending
to the affair. It was doubly
tragic for Mrs. Shumway to
see three of her eldest child
ren so imperilled as she lost
a child several years ago in
a similar manner, the little
one being drowned in Silver
Creek, at Shumway.
Swimming is a splendid
pastime, invigorating and
healthful. It should be en
couraged. But young people
should remember that deep
water, like the business end
of a gun, is always danger
ous. If you cannot swim, do not
go into deep water unless
there is someone near to
look after you.
DURING SUMMER NO
MORNINGSERVICES
Rev. Frank R. Speck has
announced that during the
warm months there will be
no morning services. The
evening services will be
held at 7:45. Sunday School
will be held at 10 o'clock.
MILL WILL RE-OPEN AT
COOLEY
The big lumber mill at
Cooley is scheduled to re
open at an early date. Men
are being engaged and
everything is being put in
readiness for work. The
horses used in getting out
the logs, and which have
been on pasture in the
southern part of tne state,
have been shiped back and
are at Cooley.
This will be good news to
Holbrook, as it is an evid
ence of returning prosper
ity. We all wish the enter
prise every success.
If no unforseen circum
stances transpire it is the
plan of those in charge to
have the mill in operation
by the first of July.
FIND HUGE FOSSIL
NEAR ADAMANA
Dr. M. G. Mehl, Profes
sor of Paleontology at the
University of Missouri, is at
present in Adamana doing
extensive work along his
particular line. Dr. Mehl is
a prominent geologist of the
middle west;
His recent excavations
have brought to light many
specmiena extremely inter
esting to scentffic men. One
fossil which was exhumed
was that of the skull of some
monstrous animal of ancient
days. The skull is over four
feet in length and is armed
with a fearsome set of threat
ening teeth. It is consider
ed to be a very fine specimen
of the now extinct, race of
animals that lived in the
world ages ago. Dr. Mehl
is making plaster casts of
these fossil remains.
Associated with him in his
interesting work is Mr. J.S.
Sempich, a student of Jour.
nalism at the University of
Missouri. Another of the
party is Mr. Lester Bailey,
who has made a very fine
cross section map of the
country dealing with the
topography of the ground
lying between Kansas City
and the Pacific Coast.
The work that these gentle
men are doing is but anoth
er evidence of the many in
teresting features to be
found in this Land of Little
Rain.
Major Shipley of Cooley
was in town Tuesday. He
was accompanied by Mr.
and Mrs. Pollock who have
been in the mountains for
some time and were return
ing to their home in Flagstaff.

that they were both late.

grant which tinkled when
you shook the glass. Since
the day was hot it was es
pecially appreciated.
