The main irea is to get into the *

What we want is to make this “bee” 1

why not send in not only your own 1

As a matter of fact, don’t you owe it 1

Isn’t the Tribune plugging every week 1

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
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
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

THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING
(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
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
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.
’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. S. gold coin. Could you use that
amount? Then, GET BUSY!

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
