FOR FIRST HALT OF
TEAR 81,880 CARS
Word has just been received by
The Old Trails Garage, local Stude
-1 baker dealer, of the new record es
| tablished by The Studebaker Corpor-
I ation of America for the first six
months of 1923, when a total of 81,-
880 Studebaker cars—all Sixes- were
All Studebaker plants continue at
capacity operations and the present
output of 15,000 cars per month is
insufficient to meet the persistent de
mand for more Studebakers from eve
ry section of the country, which is
as great—or greater—than at any
time this year.
It is well known that right from
the first of the year Studebaker has
experienced a demand that has con
tinuously been far in excess of pro
) duction, although the plant capacity
was substantially increased during
the spring when a number of new
v factory units at South Bend and De
troit, on which construction was
started late last year, were complet
ed and equipped for production.
While Studebaker sales for the
past six years have increased pro
gressively each year, the newest re
cord can be better appreciated by
comparisons. The sale of 81,880 cars
in the first six months of 1923 shows
an increase of 36 per cent over the
best previous six months’ business
jin Studebaker history—that of 1922-
! when a total of 60,053 cars were sold.
Compared with sales for the entire
year of 1918, the half-year record of
1923 shows an increase of 243 per
cent greater than sales for the full
twelve months of 1919. It exceeds
the sales of the full year 1920 by 59
\ per cent and is 23 per cent greater
than the sales for the complete year
“Studebaker’s accomplishment be
comes even more significant,” accord
| ing to Mr. Payne, when it is realized
that being a large producer, Stude
baker is strictly a builder of high
quality cars which range in price from
$975 to $2750, and in capacity from
two to seven passengers, and that
. Studebaker manufactures Sixes ex
clusively. To us it means that the
public wants quality and wants Sixes
in ever-increasing numbers. And by
providing us with three distant mod
els, Studebaker has enabled us to fit
the buyer with the car he needs just
as the shoe salesman fits the shoe
to the foot, instead of frying to adapt
the car to the buyer. There are a
number of other reasons why Stude
baker has been able to achieve new
. records year after year. These in l
• I—Seventy-one years’ experience
• in the manufacture of high grade
• 2—Continuation of the founder's
• policies of honest value and integrity
. 3.—Manufacture of vital parts in
• own plants, saving the middlemen’s
\ profits and insuring the quality.
• 4 —Quantity production methods
| in which the first and final conside
! ration is quality.
• s—The name “Studebaker” which

cured for this construction work from
State and county authorities. Dur

SLAIN FROM AMBUSH
Francisco Villa, the bandit leader,
of Mexico during the days of the re- j
volution in that country, better;
known as Pancho Villa, was killed j
from ambush as he and a party of |
his friends and body guard were
driving into Parral last Friday
morning. His chief of staff, Colonel
Trilo, and three members of his es
cort were also killed. From reports
1 the assassinations were accomplish
ed bya half dozen men secreted in
a house where they had lain in wait
for several hours or possibly two or
1 three days. It is reported that three
members of the band of assassins
have been captured by General Mar
-1 tinez and a detachment of soldiers a
short distance out of Parral. Villa,
it is known, had many enemies be
cause of the things he had done in
1 the days of his banditry and leader
ship in Mexico, and some of these
■ enemies had sworn to get Villa. It
is the opinion of President Obregon
I and others that the death of Villa
was the outcome of this hatred and
■ bitter feeling toward him. Villa,
i himself, expected something of the
• kind to happen to him from state
ments he had made.
! Villa had been granted immunity
• by the government a few years ago
■ and given a large tract of land for
’ himself and followers, on condition
• that they cease their warfare and
! settle down to peaceful pursuits.
■ Villa had been living op this ranch
i with a* large number of his former
• followers ever since and was ap
• parently determined to live up to
i the agreement he had made with the
C government. It is said that he had
' something like 800 persons on the
l ranch. It is also said that he had
s an abundance of arms and amuni
• tion to be used for defense in case
’ of need. There is little question that
' Villa stood in the way of peace in
Mexico so long as he was on the war
- path and leading a rebellion. /
- it seemed thaf he was wily enough
1 and was so familiar with the coun
- try that it was almost impossible to
t catch hinv, so the next best thing
i was to placate him and have him
i settle down to a peaceful life on a
t ranch. Villa became a fugitive
- from justice and a bandit when he
; was only eighteen years of age, as
5 the result of killing a man who had
1 wronged his sister. Rebellion was
- ground into his very nature from
t that day to the end of his life. When
t the Madero revolution started he
; fell in with the revolutionists, and
t he continued a revolutionist to the
i day when made peace with the
- government under President Obre
r gon with whom he had fought in the
L days of the Madero up rising and
against whom he had fought under
> the Carranza regime.

HOW THE NEW GRAZING
FEE WILL BE FIXED
During the many years of grazing
1 jurisdiction over the National Forest
I areas by the Forest Service, it has
| been evident that more interest and
I activity have prevailed among the
| users on the subject of fees charged
i than on any other question,
j The money involved in any trans
| action or proposition is a vital phase.
' and necessarily tied in with the value
iof the consideration and its condi
tions of operation.
There is considerable work im
mediately ahead of our Association
in this question of a new grazing
fee. The new regulations provide
that upon the proposed adjustment
of present charges, these fees may
be subject to review and change bv
the Forester at intervals of five
years. By having the fees fixed for
periods of five years, and then modi
fied in accordance with definite and
business-like methods, it is obvious
that the fee question will be stabilized!
The new rates will be based upon
an appraised value of the range, de
termined by rules made to apply to
the local conditions obtaining. In
the discussions at the recent Denver
conference on proposed grazing fees,
it was agreed that the new' rates
should be just and reasonable, based
upon. (1) a proper use of the grazing
resources to best serve the public
interests, (2) a reasonable conside
ration of value of the forage to the,
users, and (3) effets of the rates up-1
on the stodkraising industry.
It may be stated to our permittees!
that it is the intention of the Forest j
. i Service within a very short time to i
j reach conclusive ideas as to what!
■l' ~ !
' I witnessed that battle. He had come i
with about 14,000 of his men and all
1 his artillery from Chihuahua to at
* tack the government forces at Agua
1 Prieta While he w r as on the way
! across the country, the United Sta
l tes had recognized the Carranza
■ government and had permitted some
* 3,000 Mexican soldiers to be brought
from El Paso through the 'United
i States into Agua Prieta for the de
' sense of the town. This enraged
Villa so that he later crossed the
t line at Columbus, New Mexico, and
■ raided the town and killed quite a
> number of people. General Persh
> ing led a force of United States sol
i diers into Mexico to try to capture
i Villa, but it resulted in failure. Af
i ter the battle at Agua Prieta which
> resulted in the defeat of Villa, his
s army divided into two or three parts
l and returned to Chihuahua. Many
s of his men forsook him after that,
i but with his depleted army he faught
t a number of subsequent battles and
> carried on a sort of guerrilla war
l fare from that time until he was led
J to cease his warfare and settle down
i to a peaceful life as a ranchman.
■ His death removes from Mexico a
i picturesque figure and doubtless re
l moves what some of the leaders of
‘ that country still considered a men
ace, for there was no assurance, so
. long as Villa lived that he would not
i on some pretext or other brake
i loose into warfare again.
the grazing fees should be upon the
permanent basis as planned.
The Forest Service now y for two
years has been gathering data on
which to substantiate a new system
of charges based on appraised value
of the forage, the range and acces
sories. The officials are now' “round
ing-up” their information to the
point of reaching conclusions which
will be submitted to the stockmen
and their associations.
Similarly, our Association ha 3
been able through its investigative
work to formulate definite ideas on
grazing charges, and as proceeded
with in the matter of regulations,
conferences will be held by our As
sociation representatives with For
est Service officials with the purpose
of coming into agreement as to what
may be considered just and reason
able fees to be charged on Arizona
As announced before, certain fact
ors will enter into the adoption of a
fee-based on the appraised value of
! the forage. Such factors principally
w'ould be topography, accessibility of
range, kind, destiny and palatibility
of the forage, improvements placed
on the range, water developed in
the interest of better utilization,
marketing facilities, range handi
caps and a comparison with value
of outside range.
With more or less of a Concentra
tion of the Service and ourselves on
this matter, now that the regulations
i have been disposed of, we urge the
permittees to give to the Service, as
j'well as to their Association, every
I assistance within theirpporer,w r er, to
j the end that the matter may be ad
; justed quickly and satisfactorily to
| all. Not only does our Association
I want to be constantly alive to all
j the conditions in Arizona entering
into the initiating of the new sys
tem of fees, but we are endeavoring
to become familiar with conditions
in other states on which comparati
ve values can be determined.
Our permittees have been to no
little extent drilled in the principles
under which the Forest Service,
having in view a new system of
charges, has been working, through
articles appearing in our Monthly
Bulletin and in direct and “road
side” talk with forest people and
fellow stockmen, and we urge the
permittees to-write our Association
of specific points that may come into
, their minds through an analysis of
. these principles. We can all appre
ciate how essential is the work of
our Association in this project, but
| it is imperative that nothing be left
undone to bring our conditions fully
before the Service.
