City Draws Crowd 1 When Holbrook and Wins low crossed bats on the lo cal diamond last Sunday everybody was prepared for a grim contest. It was, all right. But it is to be re gretted that it was so large ly a matter of foot racing. The final score of 138 in favor of the home boys, how ever, leaves no doubt as to which team was the strong erand the swifter. ft The outfield seemed ram er weak on gocd works, but of course every one has their off days and can't be Babe Ruths or Christy Mathew sons all the time. The fire alarm in the mid dle of the game caused a cessation of hostilities while almost overyone went to the fire. The game was soon resumed as the fire turned out to be a small affair. Plenty of practice and team work is what every team needs. This rainy weather makes it hard to acquire practise, so that every good moment must be utilized. IMPROVE PETRIFIED FOREST ROAD On Thursday the State Highway Com. let the con tracts for improving ten miles of the Petrified Forest Road. The work will ex tend from the western side of the Forest in this direct ion and will cover a portion of the road ten miles in ex tent. The successful bidders on this piece of work were Messrs. Geo. Winsor and Leo Frost. Their bid a mounted to $37,292.74. Their nearest competitor's bid wis in the sum of 337, 724. 77. It will be greatly appre ciated by the traveling pub lic, especially those who mnke use of autos, when this work is completed. The Rainbow Forest should be one of Holbrook's greatest scenic assets, and anything which makes tiaveling in that direction better benefits the community. EDITOR SNOWFLAKE HERALD HERE Mrs. R. C.

Betts a mem ber of the Corporation Com mission of the State of Ari zona, was in Holbrook Thursday on business con nected with the initiation of the new Udall Transporta tion Co. which is inauguarat ing its finely equipped line of stages through this yici. nitv. While here Mr. Betts found time to pay a short visit to The Holbrook News, and although we have never met the- gentleman before, Still his name was so famil iar to us that when he W8S introduced to as Mr. Betts, it was with difficulty that we refrained from saying, "Yes, Mr. Amos A." Mr. Betts is well known by his accomplishments as a mem ber of the Corporation Com. and is seeking re-election this fall. Mr. Betts record is one that he is glad to have scrutinized. Mr. Betts is loyal to Phoe nix, as his place of resid ence, but he was forced to admit that our climate is a good deal cooler and he was enjoying it. WILL LIVE IN FLAGSTAFF Mr. and Mrs. L. D.

SEE FAMOUS HOPI SNAKE DANCE Proper Routing for Tourist Travel A very mis-leading article has just recently appeared in an EI Paso paper from a v lagstatt correspondent con cerning the proper route to be taken in going out on the Navajo Reservation to wit ness the justly famous Hopi "bnake Dance. In this article the . state ment is made that the best way to reach the famous mesas of Hopiland, where the primitive "Rattlesnake Dance" of the pueblo In dians is held, is from Flag staff and that it is impos sible to reach this annual festival either from Gallup or Holbrook. The editor of this paper, who lives in Holbrook, has attended four Snake Dances in four different years. E ch time the writer has taken the trail from Holbrook to these mystic Hopi mesas, and each time has reached them without trouble and in ample time for the dance. This is certainly proof enough that the roads are not impassable. An ex treme anxiety to influence tourist travel often leads otherwise veracious citizens to stray - from the straight and narrow path. Holbrook always has been the point of departure from the railroad for those who wished to see these dances. Custom is usually backed by good solid reason, and in this case, the reason is that the roads are easier for Jthe traveler than are any others. Several times the writer has sat on the mesa attend ing the dance and while it was in progress glanced down over the surrounding plain from that airy roof top of the world and seen many miles away to the westward the cars of the Flagstaff tourists hopelessly marooned beyond the wash es and unable to reach the scene of the barbaric dances. Last year we attended the dance, and drove across the Polacca .Wash in our own car where, according to ad vice from Flagstaff, so many Holbrook people were sup posed to have been, maroon ed. As for the attitude of the Indians, which the" corres pondent reports as forbidd ing and hostile, truth com pels us to state that we be lieve the Indians attitude to be quite different. They rather welcome the visitors, thismis-understanding must have arisen from the differ ence in customs and man ners. Nothing can equal the barbaric splendor and pict uresaueness of this Hnni Snake Dance with its unfor- getable setting of creat stone mesa and wide sweep- NOTICE On account of the greatly increased gas flow at the Adamana Well we feel it our duty to warn outsiders to keep away from the well.
