Official Paper of Navajo County and the Holbrook Oil Field ft SINGLE COPIES TEN .CENTS GETS FIRST WATER Geo. Angerstein who his long been a resident of Hol brook was the first citizen to get a permit to join on to the city water mains. Mr. Angerstein believes in hav ing everything in ship shape order, and we should not be at all surprised if he did not start in to raiso a lawn and some trees when water is plentiful. Mrs. M. M. Jordan was the second to obtain a per mit to tap the city mains. The work will start as soon as the tank on the hill is full of water. The reser voir has been fixed and the pumping started on Wed nesday. narrowly" ESCAPES ELECTROCUTION WHILE MAKING CONNECTION Mr. Baird, our electric light man, met with what might easily have been a fatal accident this week. On Monday as he was making a wire connection at the Jenn ings Garage, he received a severe shock from the wires with which he was working. Luckily the current was only 220 volts instead of the 2300 of the main power line. Of course no one wants to have 220 volts of liquid fire playing tag around through his system, but it is not ne cessarily fatal. 'Ihc fact that the ground and every thing around him wa3 dry, was also instrumental in his escape. Mr. Baird was thrown from the ladder on which he was working and received painful injuries to his face and thoat and a bad bruise on the left side of his ba:k. Dr. Bazell was in Snow flake but upon his return fixed the patient up until the arrival of Mr. Kenneth Myers, owner of the plant, and Dr. Sampson of Winslow, who cam3 up on No. 22. It is hops J that Mr. Baird . will exoori ence no lasting ill effects from his fall. Mr. Myers and Mr. Black finished making ths connec tion at the Garage and dur ing the work Mr. Myers re ceived a slight shock. But it was not serious. The trouble seemed to be caused by the galvanized iron on the sides of the building in con nection with screws used in the work. HORSES DANGEROUS AS ways cars Little Beuna, daughter of Erastus Wakefield of Tay lor, was m Holbrook this week. She had been the victim of a most painful ac cident. While riding do'n a hill in the town of Taylor she jumDed, or was thrown, from a wagon when the horses ran away. She strucl on her arms and fractured both of them. In addition to this, the wagon ran over one wrist crushing it. Mrs. Joseph Brimhall, who was also in the wagon suffered a fractured leg, falling direct ly behind the horses heels. In these days of rapid transit we are apt to blame all accidents on speed and are prone to forget that the day of the horse drawn ve hicle was not devoid of dan ger. "I feel twentyyears young" er," is what thousands have said after Tanlac restored them to health. Try it. Holbrook Drug Co. Adv. CUPID HAS BEEN BUSY On last Friday evening four, marriages were cele brated by a large wedding dance given at Snowllake. Spring is for weddings they say, and the June bride is the very proper tlitng. Snow flake and vicinity proved tliis in having four marriages which took place so nearly at the same date. The happy couples were Miss Celia Hunt and Tay lor Gardner; Miss Loie Hunt and "Bige" Rogers; Miss Eva Owens and Mr. Sil Decker; and Miss Freeman and Mr. Lafayette Hatch. The wedding dance was hrgely attended and a most delightful time was the portion of all who were pre sent. A fine orchestra dis pensed the music for the occasion. One of the News staff, Chas. Ilathorn de monstrated his talents in the augmented orchestra. Another attache of t h c News, Mr. Henry Lopez, was also present. The new floor which had just teen laid in the build ing added materially to the pleasure of the dancers. We join with members of their immediate community in wishing these newly wed ded couples "health, happi ness, and prosperity." ANOTHERWEDDING Truly it does seem that "weddings is the mostwhut is" at thn particular season of the year. At any rate we understand that Miss Vel ma Nelson and Mr. Mc Clcs.key were married a short time ago. Mrs. Mct C oskey will return to Hol- b:ook from California where sh? is visiting in about two weeks. They intend to take up their residence at the Black Canyon Oil Well daring the hot weather. '-Ve wish them every happi ness. Tom Hubbard,, "big Tom" we might truthfully call him, was in Holbrook Wed nesday. Mr. Hubbard as a candidate for sharul: was up watching the political por.

PEN ROD HOLBROOK, DEMOCRATS WILL NOT EM1SE At the meeting of the Navajo County Democrats he:d in Holbrook on Wed nesday afternoon, several matters of routine party af fairs were taken up. There were representatives pre sent from all parts of the county. In the matter of endoi sing candidates a re solution was made and later amended and passed decid ing that the party in this county would endorse no local candidate?, but leave the primary law to its nat ural functioning, allowing any man or woman, who chose to do so, to run for office and let the voters de cide. NEW KIGtiWAYSHOULD NOT END AT TOWN LiSiTS It -might have been! That's not a very pleasant reflection! We must not permit that to be said of Holbrook. Sleeping at the switch is poor amusement. Further more we never get anything without asking for it, nor anywhere without trying. The present situation with regard to the passing of the highway through Holbrook is a case in point. Winslcw by being alive to her chances has gotten the plans to in clude a paved street thru the town. By paying little or no attention to the mat ter it has come to this sit uation in our town. 'lhe ninety thousand dollar road ENDS at the town limits. The State refuses to build the highway along the rail road in Holbrook where the old one has been, as the right of way is too narrow. Tnat is Lhe situation of af fairs at present. Since this road is unavailable on ac ejiitofths State require ment?, the only thing to do is to meet them on another on ?. Th3 next street north of the old road could be us;d. This is Oakland Ave. It is understood that the Scorse interests stand ready to open up the street clear through their property and it would require cn'v a slight jog in the road to meet this street. If the State would agree to use the old road there would be no reason to take anotner path. But since they say "No", and the "laws of the Medes and the Persians are unchangeable" the next best thing for us to do is to get the road where we can. W e would certainly be foolish to have a splendid Highway stop at tha edge of town and have the tourists descanting on the terrible road conditions existing in Holbrook. A city is always short on funds. There are so many things to do. When we have the opportunity to get one street fixed as it should be, we would be very fool ish to let it escape. Think it over and then pat in your plea for the work. It simmers down to this: at present we get NOTHING in the line of a road through our city. By putting in a request that meets with their stated. con ditions and requirements we will be able to have the good highway road-T)ed ex tended through town. It is worth while? Emphaticallv, "Yes"!

ARIZONA, SHERIFF NEWMAN'S REST RUDELY BROKEN WEDNESDAY NIGHT Brawl Breaks In On Officer's Dream Five Mexicans, two butch er knives, and one bottle, or maybe two of white mule. Mix well and leave to sim mer for thirty minutes. Warranted to. produce a first rate brand of trouble. It has in the past. It will in the future. It did last Wednesday night. At one o'clock the sheriff's peaceful slumbers were rudely broken by the clar ion call of dulv.

Lee made good his laurels by picking two hot ones oat of the circumambient atmos phere and sending'em home to play. Quince wasn't a quince forhejincd out a couple- piL s'zzlers that were, warmer than the weather. Marcus staved home and met all comers, whether low balls, high balls!, or side-winders. Coyote is a 'wild wolf of the prairie' when it comes to ball. He eats 'em alive Capps and Buckles are favorites with Holbrook ball fans and riveted their laurels fast. Young Hastings was greatly chagrined at his bad luck butit happens to every one somatimes. Next time he goes in the field he says he is going to take along a "fly-swatter." The only matter which might have marred an other wise pleasant day was the keen dissatisfaction expressed by the Gallup team over a decision by the Umpire. Sever al close decisions has been made earlier in the game which were against Holbrook, but in this case when the shoe was on the other foot, there was an awful howl. Good sportmanship and a spirit of fairness should inhibit such an exhibition. The score given below shows what an excellently played game it was. Now we have a team. A good team deserves the support, moral and financial, of the town. It cannot exist without it. Let each one do his part.

Gallegosis in jail smiling and Baca laughs in his bed. It was a case of too many knives and too much white mule. . The only mystery is as to who had the while mule. When questioned the only answer" that could be elicited from the culprits was "THEY had it." Knives and whiskey are a bad combination. No one can deplore the fact more than we. But Gallegos' good nature is contagious. We cannot be severe. . The affair happened on the sand in the river bed near the ice-plant. Baca has been employed as delivery boy for the ice-plant 7is being laid up in the hot weather is unfortunate. Pill With Enthusiasm the new Town Team played Grays on the local diamond. WILL DRILL WELLS Not oil wells this time, just plain water wells. Mr. and Mrs. Arlo Baldwin . of Taylor passed thru our city last week headed for the Navajo Indian Reserva tion where Mr. Baldwin has a position with the Govern ment. His " duties are to drill wells for the Indians in that arid country. This is a good work, for surely no place in the world is trood water more of a blessing than it is in this arid land. SAYS HE IS NOTALAW- YER -BUT Judere D.J. Thomas indig nantly and with fervour con- tradicts the statement made in the News of last week. saying that he was a law yer, rie seemed to consid er that he had been insult ed. His defense was made in re the case of his drink ing the first quart of oil produced at the Holbrook Oil Well, either with or without a chaser. He goes farther and explains that he will not have to imbibe the oil as "it was a contr act, and is now barred by the statute of limitations." You know to our poor un educated ears that sounds dreadfully like legal phrase ologyand logic, much to much so, at that, to ba em anating from the Judge who in the same breath dis claims all knowledge or as sociation with the law or lawyers. "Methinks h e doth protest too much." Be sides, we dont believe he is exempt by the statute of limitations and hope" the tun penalty ot tne law is assessed against him. SNOW ONMT.ORD Messrs. Joe Woods, Jr. and Sr., Chauncey Woods, ana Elwood Crouse return ed Monday from their fish ing trip in the mountains. All are a sun-symphony in red and brown, but they had a wonderful time while they were accumulating their complexions. Joe Woods Jr. caught the largest fish that was pulled out on the trip, although it was not a mountain trout but a salmon trout, and it measured between seven teen and eighteen inches in length. Wish we had been there for dinner. Chauncey who is employ ed in Needles, will remain in Holbrook for a week's visit with his many friends before returning to work. While on the trip the party climbed up along the sides of old Mt. Ord until they were among the snow banks. They found the climate rather warm upon their return to our city. WILL KEEPJN RACE Mrs. James Donohoe, who has announced her candi dacy for the nomination of County Recordar has taken temporary charge of the Adamana Hotel. She does not expect to be held, there more than sixty days, as she is merely doing it to help the place out of a bad hole. Some rumors have been current that she intend ed to relinquish the race, but she states absolutely that this is not her intent ion. She is in the race and intends to stay in. Un founded rumors are the bane of a community. -o- Mrs. Leo Frost of St. Joe was in the county seat on Tuesday. Vol. 14 No. 8 ELKS INITIATE LARGE CLASS Saturday night there were "big" doing at Winslow. The Elks Lodge of the Rail road City .held a initiation and after the initiation there was a banquet and a dance at Clear Creek to celebrate the affair. Several candidates went down from Holbrook.. A mong the number being one young man in a particularly "delectable" pink, crepe de chine shirt. We would real ly like to know what that article of haberdashery look ed like after he had met with a "friendly" welcome from the Elk herd! But one thing is certain, they all had a good time.
