WINSLOW is The Metropolis of Northern Arizona, o o VOL 25 A Fine Project. There has been a movement started by Prof. Cornelius, and backed by the business men and citizens of Winslow, which hasfor its purpose the raising of a fund for defraying the expenses of the Winslow high school band, the foot ball and basket ball teams to the Northern Arizona fair at Prescott. While in that city they will be the guests of the fair association and will be shown every courtesy possible. The business men are doing this be cause of the brilliant work done during the three years that the Winslow high school has been in existence. Last year the school exhibit sent from this city to the northern fair brought home twelve first prizes and ten second ones, and the generous donations • made by the business men show that they haye every confidence in the girls and boys of Winslow, and no doubt the clever assembly of young people will live up to the expectations of the people of this city. Football To-morrow. The Flagstaff foot-ball team will arrive in the morning, with the thought that.the Winslow high will be simply another practice game. The game will be played on the grounds in front of the new grand stand, commencing at 3:30 p. m., and it behooves every one to get out and “root” for the first team the Winslow school ever put in the field. The Flag staff line-up is as follows: right guard, Trather; right tackle, Ma thews; right end, Yost; left guard Ellingner; left tackle, White; left end, Williams; left half, Pulliam; full back, Hamblin; half right, Beaton; quarter back, Hender son. The student body and the fac ulty, accompanied by the high school band, will meet the visit ing team at the depot, and es cort them to the grounds. After the game other entertainment will be provided to make the stay of the visitors pleasant. Our Railroad Boys. Brakeman C. 0. Dawson left Sunday for Los Angeles, to visit his sister. Brakeman F.

The proposition to vote $1(1,000 | bonds on the Winslow school I district to build a gymnasium auditorium, submitted to the voters last Saturday, failed to carry by a vote of 118 to 01. This vote was something of a surprise to the friends of the proposition, as the sentiment of the community seemed to be unanimously in favor of the bond proposition, but the quiet work of the opposition proved effective. Even the voting of the. ladies | was a disappointment, as the ! count disclosed that a number cf ; them were against the bonds, i when it was expected they would be almost unanimous for them. The result of the election demon strates that our people evidently , are satisfied to have inferior ac commodations for her children | than other towns in northern | Arizona. The high school band played on the streets during the day in the hope of stirring up the enthusiasm of the voters, but visions of increased taxes out weighed the music.

Rev. F. W. Strong, of Texas, is holding a series of meetings at the Christian church, commenc ing last Sunday, and will continue every evening until further no tice. His is a sincere, eloquent gentleman, and the increasing attendance shows he is appreciat ed, and his work will no doubt be crowned with success. Itifs a relief, after our recent experi ences, to know there are men in the revival work who can bring a grace of diction, and a refinement of manner that appeals to the people, and wins their confidence and respect. We are glad Mr. Strong is here, and we hope the work he is accomplishing will tempt him to remain for some time. WINSLOW, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, OCTOBER 8, 1915. Local Happenings. E.
