WINSLOW, NAVAJO COUNTY, ARIZONA, FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1921 BIG BOOST FOR BETTER ROADS HOLBROOK-LUPTON ROAD WILL BE ASSURED Under the auspices of the Gallup Chamber of Commerce about seventy five good road boosters gathered at Adamana last Tuesday. If the wea ther had been propitious for the oc casion there would have been double that number but the weather god or dained that the clouds should cover the sky and frequently emit a few drops of rain or a fc<w flakes of snow. This condition early in the morning of that day caused many who antici pated attending the meeting to desist. However, there was a meeting just the same. It was enthusiastic be cause the cause is a just and a patri otic one and every person who bears any loyalty to his section of the country is for the building and im proving of the section of the National Old Trails Road between Holbrook and Lupton. This was the primary cause of the meeting. That there are numerous enthusiasts beside just Gallup was. evidenced in the repre sentatives that appeared from nearly every little town along the Santa Fe from Albuquerque west to Winslow. All were greatly interested and there resulted the making of an organiza tion which will endeavor to inaugu rate some plan of financing the work that is needed to be done on this section of the road which is so vital ly important to the motor traffic over the National Old Trails and likewise to every town and city and community along the line of the National Old Trails from Albuquerque west to California. This getting together, talking over matters, will greatly as sist in the promotion of. traffic for this road as well ad assist largely in the consummation which is wish ad; the building of the road and the WINSLOW WINS FROM HOLBROOK The Winslow and Holbrook high school teams played their first game Saturday afternoon, Winslow win ' ning by a score of 17 to 11. As the score indicates, both teams were sad ly in need of practice. The local team has good material and are working out every day and at their next ap pearance in Winslow, which will be in about three weeks, they promise to show something. A dual track meet was held in the morning which was won by Holbrook by a score of 43 to 50. Both teams are preparing for the Northern Ari zona Track Field Meet which will be held in Flagstaff April 23rd. o COMING NEXT WEEK Dr. Schell, the well-known opto metrist and optician, of Tucson, will be at the Harvey House on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23, and will remain the two days only. If you need glasses for headaches, weak or failing eyesight, etc., call on him for expert service.

It* Arthur Wells Hails From Danville Says Two National Celebrities Came Out of That Illinois Town—“Me and Uncle Joe” Arthur Wells, the three-hundred-pound member of the Apollo Duo, hails from Danville, 111., home of Uncle Joe Cannon, and he smilingly says that Danville has produced two national celebrities —“me and Joe.” Both are na tional institutions. Arthur Wells is as widely known in the Chautauqua world as Uncle Joe is in Washington. For seventeen years he headed the famous Apollo Concert Company, known all over the United States. He comes to Chau tauqua this year with Mrs. Wells alone. They present two musical programs so varied in character that it might well trouble a company of five or six peo ple to duplicate them. putting of it in 3uch condition that all motor traffic can get over it with comfort and safety. A board of di rectors was elected and the details of the organization will be largely in their hands. This directorate will shortly meet at Gallup in session and take up the several matters which are of import to the organization. R. J. Pritchard of Gallup was chosen Pres ident of the organization, and Judge L. V. Root, of Winslow, vice-presi dent. The secretary will be appoint ed by the president and the treas urer will be later named by the directorate as one of the banks at Gallup. Numerous speeches in behalf of the cause were made, but the real work lies with the di rectors of the organization. It will take only a small amount of money to put the road in passable condition and this amount will be raised along the line and will be expended where needed the most and without any overhead expenses. Their plans of raising this money are to be discussed at the next meeting of the directorate at Gallup within a few days. Those attending from Winslow were Dr. R G. Bazell, Judge R. B. Walton, 11. A. Funk, T. M. Quebedeaux and L. V. Root. There were several more mo tor parties expecting to attend but the inclemencies; of the weather Tuesday morning caused them to stay at home. We might mention that the coffee and weinies were most gratefully welcomed by the hungry bunch, their appetites measuring alike with their enthusiasm for good roads, and par ticularly the National Old Trails road between Holbrook and Lupton. LEUPP OUTCLASSES APPRENTICES In a ball game which turned into something resembling a track meet, the Leupp Indians had to do most of the running in last Sunday’s ball game. The ratio of the score was nearly 3 to 1 in favor of the Indians but the actual score was much great er, the scorekeeper keeping the count a dark secret. But both teams claim to have broken a record by making more runs than was ever known to be made in a base ball game, the honor going to Leupp. Next Sunday Prescott will be here for a game with the Apprentices and it is announced that a new line-up on the Apprentice team will give Winslow fads fiome real baseball Two or three of the Winslow play ers will be in the line-up. The game will be called at 2:30 p. m. —o PAVING MATERIALS Good intentions should be covered with asbestos! —Cartoons Magazine. • NEED GLASSES! See Dr. Schell of Tucson at the Harvey House on Friday and Satur day of next week, April 22 and 23 Special attention given to childrens’ eyes. It SINGLE COPIES, TEN CENTS IMPROVEMENTS ON CITY MOTOR CAMP GROUND The new builing erected at the city camping grounds’ for tourists is proving quite popular with the mot oring public. The materials for this building were furnished by the city and the construction of it was done by the class in building of the city schools. There are shower baths and a kitchen where several gas plates have been installed for the use of the motori3t who camps as he travels. This camp service for motorists will be largely advertised throughout the country and partic ularly along the line of the National Old Trails Road and as a result many will stop here for a night or a day when otherwise they would not stop at all except for immediate requirements. o AD AM ANA NOTATION^ A great commotion occured at the Vdamana Hotel Tuesday, caused by 15 or 20 of Mr. Wm. Nelson’s guests being delayed >on their out bound ;cyip to the Petrified Forest; some of them being very impatient. Mr. Nel son explains the delay as follows: There is an old gentleman in Ada mana who is awfully peeved on ac count of some of Miss Bower’s school children discovering he had a bald spot on the back of his head and im mediately calling him “Grandpa” in stead of “Uncle”. Are you listening, Bill Morgan? He was working at the forge re pairing some part of his big Reo that was to take the tourists over to the Forest when in some unaccountable manner he tipped over a five-gallon can of gasoline into his fire in the forge, which extinguished it instant ly, thus causing him to clean out his forge and biuld a new fire. I wonder if the Standard Oil Company is going to donate some more money for re search work. According to Prof. Barton of the University of Pennsylvania, Adamana s to have an eclipse of the moon on Ypril 22nd, at 1:44 a. m. It is surely wonderful how" the Professor can tell forge and build a new fire. I wonder f he can tell at this time who is go ing to work in our Mrs. Moon’s place during the eclipsing business. And will the other moon take advantage of this situation and go out and get full? Why doesn’t the Professor tell the whole story? We asked one of Mr. Nelson’s Pe rifled tourists the other day how he liked our city. He said that he made the following observation: That we had ample room to expand; that no two houses were on the same street; 'hat the twin lights of our city were beautiful; that we should feature our Arlesian salt well to sell our oil stock; that some of our houses need ed painting real bad; that we ought t 0 have on » auto camping ground. Then we asked that tourist what part of the East he was from and he said ‘Winslow.” Our people were greatly disturbed Wednesday evening about two o’clock by one of those terrestial shimmeys 'hat is generally known around logg ing camps as an earthquake. While the damage around Adamana was not great, yet the mental suffering was n some cases appalling. The Ada mana Thimble Club was in session at the time and just as the crash came all but two of the ladies 3wollowed their gum. It broke up all the setting hens in town except one that war-, setting in a Ford, she and her eggs were saved by the shock absorbers. Section Foreman Von Achen at Bibo said it put his track out of line so bad that tramps could not make the time over it a foot. All the stock holders of the Zuni Oil Well thought the “Zuni” had come in and sent a boy over on a burro to find out; the boy has not returned yet. It shook everything down in Mr. Alton’s gen eral store except the prices. Take it all in all, I wish it never had hap pened. o CHAUTAUQUA COMES APRIL 23rd Winslow people will be glad to know that the local Chautauqua com mittee has secured the Washington school auditorium and that all pro grams will be given there. Partons will thus be assured of a well lighted and well heated building and of com fortable seats. The advance agent assured the committee that an unusually strong program had been secured and that everyone would be pleased with it. The first number will be Saturday afternoon and from then on two pro grams will be given each day, closing Wednesday night. The two entertainments on Sunday will be arranged with due respect for the day. On Sunday night a play “The Servant in the House,” will be given by a full cast from New York. This play which furnishes a full evening ’a entertainment, is one of the finest things ever put on the stage and alone is worth the full price of admission. Season tickets may be had from members of the committee beginning Friday. The price for adults is $3; for high school children $1.50, and for smaller children sl. Ten ex cellent programs will be given, thus making each one of these entertain ments cost 30 cents. Buy your ticket early and help the committee. R. M. HENSLEY, Chairman, Ticket Selling Committee. 2 CLEAN LOCAL J jr NEWSPAPER t 2 FOR THE HOME I A TRIP TO THE JUNGLE Carveth Wells, in Picture and Story, Takes Chautauqua Audiences Through Wild Jungles of Malay Peninsula. For six years Carveth Wells, of Lon don, England, formerly lecturer at Im perial College, London University, lived in the wild jungle lands of the Malay Peninsula. He was official ex plorer for the British Government and the experiences which he encountered in that period of time form one of the most thrilling and interesting stories now being told on the American plat form. Mr. Wells brought back with him a remarkable collection of views of the animal, reptile and plant life of that strange tropical country and he will present these on the screen at Chautauqua on the fourth night. HAPPENINGS AMONG THE CITHEOPLE Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Quebedeaux were visitors to Gallup the first of the week. W. H. Dagg returned late la3t week from Pacific coast points where he had been for several weeks. Mrs. J. G. Martini of Linden, is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Henderson, for a few days. W. H. Dagg of the highway com mission,* Judge R. B. Walton and W. J. Crozier were business visitors at Holbrook Monday of this week. Robert and Anna Leonard spent the week end at Flagstaff visiting their aunt, Mrs. C. N. Beckwith. A. R. Goldman, the Kinsley Ave nue merchant has been awarded the job of clothing the Winslow Base Ball Club. The new suits have al ready been ordered and are expect ed to arrive any day now. The snows of last week have added greatly to the moisture of the ranges and the cattlemen and sheepmen are likewise in happier mood. Tuesday morning the local section of country was visited by a slight rain. Mrs. Amy C. Jones leaves for No gales, Arizona, the latter part of the week where she will attend the wed ding of her neice, Miss Georgia Tit jomb, to Captain Joseph Williams McCall, Jr. The wedding will oc cur April 20th. Miss Marguerite Payne has receiv ed notice of her appointment as a teacher in the public schools at Hono lulu (Hawaiian Islands). She is to report there some time next fall. Miss Payne at present is a teacher in the public schools in the city. B. P. Adams, for the past two years employed at the Mail office, received reinstatement in the U. S. Indiajn Service, and ordered to report for clerical duty at the Seger Agency, Oklahoma. He and his son will leave for his new post of duty about the 28th of this month. The road conditions between Hol brook and Winslow are fairly good. Good time can be made but there might be a great improvement made if they were dragged and leveled im mediately after some of these rains. Such treatment would soon place them in smooth condition and relieve the present rough condition which keep a car constantly on the bound instead of permitting it to roll smoothly along the surface. The ideal time to do this work is imme diately after such showers a3 we had this week when the top dirt is wet sufficiently to be handled and dis tributed into and filling the small holes and at the same time removing the upward projections. A little work of this nature on the road would improve it greatly. o Remember the base ball game of Sunday. It is going to be worth a ticket, anyway. If you are a fan, you will not be able to stay away. NUMBER 8
