It was unanimously voted that the members of the Royal Club disband for the summer and unite with the Jolly Girls’ Club. The meeting of last Wednesday night, June 7, was called to order by the president. After repeating the Lord’s prayer, the regular routine of busi ness was carried out. The president made a speech on disbanding for the ; summer, and forming a new club with the girls during the summer vacation. The financial standing of each mem ■ ber w r as balanced, because it was : agreed that each member must be paid up before he can join the new , consolidated vacation club. Mr. Rob , ert Fambrough opened the discussion , on consolidation and each member j gave his opinion on combing clubs i during the summer. A resolution was I drawn up and every member voted in . favor of it. $1.75 was collected for dues. .

DAY FOR FILING IN i TRIBUNE CONTEST j CANDIDATES FOR BEEHIVE COR- 1 NATION MUST GET INTO LINE , IN A FEW DAYS , There are but a few days left in ’ which to send- in your solution to the 1 Beehive puzzle, but there is plenty 1 time if you but get busy. 1 The main irea is to get into the * game. The lists are coming in right 1 along but your’s has not yet arrived. 1 What we want is to make this “bee” 1 contest a “hummer." Let’s have a “swarm,” so that there will be some glory in being the "queen (or king) ' bee.” i Send in your answer whether you > send in a subscription or not. But 1 why not send in not only your own 1 subscription but go out and get a new 1 subscriber, and win the biggest prize? 1 As a matter of fact, don’t you owe it 1 to your home paper, a little boost like 1 this, aside from any puzzle contest? 1 Isn’t the Tribune plugging every week 1 for the best interest of the home community? Did you ever, aside from paying your subscription regul arly, go out of your way to give your 1 home paper a little boost? Maybe you never thought of such a thing. We’re not complaining. The people of Ari zona have treated us well. What we are trying to get at is this, that our big puzzle contest is on and we want to make it a big success. Even if you should not be the winner, you are really not a loser But why talk of losing? You stand just as good show of winning as some body else. We have it from the artist who made the beehive picture puzzle that the distinguishing thing about this puzzle is that it is made up of simple every day things, and not loaded down with a lot of unheard-of w’ords or scientific and technical terms that only highly educated persons would know. Os the many answers already re ceived, we find some of which we think that it is too bad that their com pilers have not qualified for bigger prizes. They ought to do so sure by next Tuesday night. No one in this office or connected with it has seen the master list. It is yet in safe keeping with the artist who drew the beehive puzzle for the Tribune. Therefore, there can be no “leaking” of information and no one has the least advantage over anybody else. The appointment of Mrs. E. L. Clay ton, Attorney Watkins and Mrs. Lau ra Wells as judges for the contest, assures everyone an absolutely square deal. + ♦ + + +♦♦•!' + ♦ + ♦ + + + ♦ ❖ + * LOCALS * ❖ 4* 4* v *'* •;* v -I* -I* *l* v *l* *)• *** Birthday Surprise Thursday evening, June 8, Mr. and Mrs. Chas.

THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING JACKSON-JOHNSON BOUT (Preston News Service) Columbus, 0., June 16. —Jack John son, former heavyweight champion of the world, has been matched to meet Tutt Jackson, the Washington Court House sensation, according to reports which have just been received. The J battle is scheduled to take place eith- ( er in Washington, C. H. Ohio, or j Dayton on July 4th. Arrangements I and details have not as yet been re- I leased for publication, but the match 1 is sure to take place if the National I Boxing Commission lifts the ban un- ] der which the wily Jack has been 1 placed. i Age Versus Youth I The battle, while not assuming any c international proportions, is sure to i attract a monster crowd, inasmuch as 1 Johnson, in his prime, was consider ed the cleverest heavyweight boxer of all times. Young Jackson, fre quently called “the terrible Tutt” since his almost sensational knock out victories, has risen rapidly in the i pugilistic firmement until the pres- i ent He is now seriously considered j as a logical opponent for Wills or ] Dempsey. The contest on the na- i tional holiday will be the age-old bat- ; tie of age versus youth. The ex- , champion is nearing his 40th mile stone, while Jackson is just 21 years old. But Johnson has had years of experience in the ring. And in any fistic debate, experience goes along way. Public Greatly Interested Since announcement of the bout, the sporting public has been asking the question over and over again— will Johnson, who has been minus ring activity for many years except in the capacity of giving exhibition bouts and workng on the stage, be able to withstand the onslaught of the hard hitting, lion hearted Tutt? Many critics are of the opinion that Johnson is in line for the same dose as befell the aged, but still dangerous Sam Langford several weeks ago when the Boston puglist was knocked cold in the fourth round of a scheduled 15-round bout. Others advance the theory that the former champion still , retains much of his ring cunning and , defensive skill, and that in the event the match does not last too long will be on his feet at the end of the fray. This question can be answered only when the two men enter the roped arena against othe other in Ohio. Procrastination ’Tis said that procrastination is the thief of time, so don’t let it rob you , of your reward which may be won by , entering the Puzzle Contest NOW. Find the objects in the picture that , begin with the letter “b” and send in your answer before June 20th. If a new subscription is sent in with the answer, the first prize will be $25 in U.

KEYSTONE BASEBALL TEAM MAKES POOR SHOWING (Preston News Service) Pittsburgh, Pa., 16. —The Pittsburgh Keystone Baseball Club, “Smoky City’s entry into the Negro Baseball League, is meeting with a series of reverses during Its initial western tour. The club lost three games out of four with Taylor’s A. B. C’s at Indianapolis, Ind., and the first of a four-game series with the Monarchs at Kansas City, Mo. Loose felding on the part of the Keystone boys is given as the cause for the poor showing of the team. Manager Dismukes says his boys are playing under a handicap as the grounds are stranger and the young sters lack experience as a traveling club, but these boys will soon get their stride and a different story will be told when they get over their “stage fright.” The pitching and batting are on a par with any team thus far. 4 ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦+♦ ;! “JUST WRIGHT” j; :■ Shoes for Men ;■ Union Made !
