Truth, Justice In all our deali.igs with the public; political, social and industrial; a seise of responsibility to our constituen cy and our loyalty to the interests of Holbrook and Navajo county. Mony A Mickle Mik's A Muckle" The S:otch are a canny, far-sighted race and their proverb3 are the quintessence of common sense. None mare so than the one printei at thi t)? of this column. What does it mean? You would like it translated into plain "American ess"? Weil, this is what that string of Harry Liuder slanguage really means " Many a little make3 a lot." This is truer than the often quoted fact that 2 and are 4, because once in the "dear, dead days", when we were still aspiring in the halls of know ledge we knew an old C Mlege Professor who could prove, step by step, and we looking on could find no flaw in his reasoning uitilhe reached the climax, that 1 and 1 make 8, which is manifestly absurd. But just the same he proved it by irrefutable algebraic equations. - So, "many a little makes a lot" is even truer than a mathematical axiom and that is certainly being emphatic about the matter. But we have not led our reader 'way out in the ten acre lot' of conjecture just to fire truisms at his head. No. What we want to do is to apply this statement to a case in point and offer its aspects for his consideration. Take the matter of the Municipal Camp Ground in Holbrook. It would be " just too swe-e-et for words" as an enthusiastic flipper remarked to have one all de corated up with tha very latest style gas ovens, licorice lights, shower baths and so on. But since to start on this prententious scale would be impossible, why not do the be3t we can and improve our site by degrees? j. Why should we sit back and do nothing simply be cause we can't do it all. Half a loaf make3 consider able more toast than no bread. If we do no more than clean up the chosen spot, make a few stone fire-places for out of door cookery and provide some drainage, all of which can be done by members of the community, it will at least be a start in the right direction. The tour ists will appreciate what has been done and will be len ient with our short comings. But if we do nothing at $11 it is very probable that we will be put on the verbal black-list of towns that is passed from mouth to mouth by the roving tourist. - - - If we all get together on a certain specified day we could pat this project over- in short order. It would be a great help in "selling" Holbrook and the scenic at tractions surrounding her to the automobile tourist. When this day was decided upon it would be entire ly within the bounds of possibility that the women could be counted upon to provide the "eats" for the sons of Adam who toiled. If the town council could be prevail ed upon to negotiate for the land needed for the site Qf the camp ground, this same land to belong to the city and eventually to be used as a city park, it would be easily possible to raise enough money in one day to de fray the initial expense. The greater part could be accomplished by "donated" labor. Men who understand masonry could build fire places from rocks hauled from the adjacent mesa by others who own teams. Almost anyone can wield a shovel for a day, even if it would not be his chosen life work. Carpen ter, blacksmiths men of every sort of talent could put it to good use and the evening of the day would find many things accomplished. As soon as the committee appointed to negotiate further concerning the land makes its report, immedi ate action should ensue. Tourists are going through here by the hundreds every day. If we fail to interest them in what we have to show, merely because of our dilatoriness, we deserve the financial loss to the com munity which will inevitably follow. To get back to our proverb. Let's see that all the "little things" we can do at this time, and in times to come, will after awhile make our camp ground all we wish it to be. Many a small effort added to other small efforts, finally produces worthwhile results. Because we can't do wonderful things let's not refuse to work at all. If you couldn't get a million dollars, is that any reason why you should disdain the thousands that you can possess? The camp ground is a BUSINESS NECESSITY for Holbrook. We can build it little by little. Let's start. "Mony a mickle mak's a muckle." "Business Men Should Cheer Up" Says Babson This is Good Advice For All of Us "Talk about musicians and actors being tempera mental! They cannot beat the average business man who is up today and down tomorrow. Within a period of sixty days he will be a pessimist, an optimist, and back again to a pessimist, when all the time nature is slowly but surely following its natural course," said Rog er W. Babson in his weekly interview on business condi tions. . . . "A year ago business men were very pessimistic; then came a temporary upturn in busiuess and following We agree with this week's editorial---"Many a little makes a lot." DON'T ENVY THEM Do you envy soma neighbor who seems to ba get ting along a little batter than you do? The chances are that hi3 su?;es3 is due to some special plan which you can adopt with eqial success. Your neighbDr's handsom i bank account is the re sult of many small deposits made often. That plan is easy but it pays handsomely. There are many paople passing our bank every day with mjney in thair pjjkata that m-ght easily be pat away at interest. Bat besausa these amounts are small they are not saved and tha I033 goe3 0:1 for a life time. We always welcome the small regular deposits of allwh) aci willing to adopt thi3 system it means sure su:ce33 in due time. 5 Per Cent on Savings MERCHANTS AND STOCKGROWERS BANK Holbrook, Ariz. the lead of certain Federal officials and prosperity boom ers, they became optimistic. Since, however, these pro sperity forcasts have not matured, they are again down in the dumps. How long will it take us to learn that Presidents don't make busines3 but rather business makes Presidents. It is true that conditions are dull at the pre sent time partly on account of the late wet spring, part ly due to the floods of the south, partly due to the strikes in New England and New York State, and partly due to the upset conditions in Europe. When, however, busi ness is looked upon from a long range it will be seen that it is passing thru only a natural readjustment which takes always considerable time. I stated over two years ago that no permanent improvement could be expected before August 1922, and I still feel that way. Even after the corner turns in the summer or fall of this year, it will be a slow altho a steady climb upward. "On the other hand, as all industries were not hit at the same time, they will tend to come back at different times. The industry that was first hit will be the first to come back. This was the silk industry which was most suppressed during the war will show the greatest recov ery during the next few years; indeed, it is already re covering. I have in mind the building industry. There is a marked increase in the demand for all building ma terials, notably lumber, altho iron and steel are sharing in the building boom. The sales of hardware and paints have increased. If labor does not become too hungry for increased wages, this spurt in new building may de velop into a real boom. "Another industry which should quickly show better employment is the automobile industry, especially the makers of the more expensive cars. These makers were the first to be hit and these should be the first to come back." "Commodity prices are likewise adjusting themselves naturally." Better still, the cost of living as a whole is still on the decline. A man can purchase for 75 cents today what cost him a dollar a year ago. Retail sales are hold ing up very well, the mail order houses are showing in creases, western shoe manufacturers are busy, and furni ture factories are working on a liberal schedule. Even coal production is holding up fairly well. "All of this means that there is no reason why the banker, manufacturer, or merchant should be a pessimist or an optimist today. Neither the prosperity boomers nor the calamity howlers should be followed. Within a few months, concluded Mr. Babson "we should reach the end of the decline in general business. Honesty, thrift, industry, and the spirit of service will hasten the day."

WE WISH HIM SUCCESS He didn't have a hard luck storv to tell. He didn't try to sell us anything. He was just a boy, 'way off from home and a little hun gry to "visit" with the folks. He dropped in at the News office and chatted a while. Bv name he is Robert K. Noble and he hails from Federalsburg, Maryland. He is an ex-service man of the 29th Division, who saw fighting in the Argonne and was gassed in Alsace. And after a long siege in govern ment hospitals he had de cided to get well 'on his own'.. So he is traveling across country on his bi cycle propelled by 'shanks mares' on his way to the Coast. He is feeling so fine, he proudly boasts, that he'll be able to handle a job when he gets there, and he looks it. He's a trifle gaunt, but he's brown as a berry and his muscles show up most convincingly. We hope he is entirely cur ed and that he gets a dandy job when he reaches his destination, for his is the spirit that helped the sol when things looked black. 1 le left Navajo over forty miles away at tour-hfteen Wednesday morning and reached Holbrook by ten fit'teen the same morning. Then gaily pedalled on his way to Winslow thirty three miles to the west. It took him just a month and a dav to set this far and he intends to reach the Coast by the 27th of June. -O ' NOTICE AM) ORDER FOR THE ISSlK AND SALE OF $11,750.00 MHOOL BONDS OF SCHOOL DISTRICT No. 6, OF NAVAJO (OINTV, STATE OF ARIZONA.
