   Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - October 11, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma                                "Cussed by a h ew = Discussed by Many  Read by All" THE REAL JOB Progress cannot be built upon a rotten foundation. Let's Clean up and Build up Adair County ADAIR. COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER A   GOOD   NEWSPAPER IN A GREAT COMMUNITY VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1929 NUMBER 35 PIRATES MEET OLDEST RIVALS IN GAME TODAY Locals Expect to Hang First Defeat of History on Sallisaw Team This Year With the scalps of the Muskogee and Rogers teams hanging on their belts, the Stilwell Pirates expect to make the Sallisaw "lack Diamonds, "walk the plank" in the first conference game of the season here today. . .Mac's team is in the pink of condition and they are heated to the boiling point by the fires of defeats and ties that have been handed them by the Sallisaw griders for the past few years. The Salisaw line up is decidedly weaker than it has been for three years, acording to observers. The Stilwell line and backfield has never been better- so Sallisaw may expect to leave for home this afternoon beaten by at least three touchdowns. . .We quote below an article from the Sallisaw Democrat of last week. . ."One of the bigest games of the sea-eon will be with the Stilwell Pirates at Stilwell next Friday.. The PirateB are coached by Emmit McLemore former Haskell star. The Black Diamonds are going to Stilwell to try to repeat a victory 6f last season over the Pirates. Sallisaw has defeated the Stilwell crew for the last three seasons the scores being, 1926, Sallisaw 19, Stilwell 7; 1927, Sallisaw 6, Stilwell 0; 1928, Sallisaw 2, Stilwell 0. This year the game is expected to be much closer than ever before.. Xhe Ogle-Diamonds are going to try to make it their fourth consecutive victory over the Pirates., while the McLemore men are going to try to halt the winning Black Diamond. The Stilwell team is built up around Benny Adair, former Sallisaw star and Trentham quarterback, Arnold center and Sixkiller are the mainstays of the Pirates team. Stilwell has one of the best lines ever produced in this part of the state, Pirate fans say. "John Wheeler, who has been suffering from an infected foot the past week will be able to be in the Black Diamond lineup. Wheeler did not make the trip over to Eufaula. Ogle backs his team around captain Marion Harris halfback. Other men that are largely depended upon are, Wheeler Starr, Starts and Duncan. "A large pep rally will be held next Thursday beginning at the High School and making the loop around town and stop in front of the Sallisaw State bank where yells and songs will be heard to send the Ogle crew to Stilwell to bring home a win. Everybody in town, whether a fan Or not should be up town on that night. This will be one of the largest pep rally's ever held here. The Black Diamonds are not idle this week but are practicing hard every day. The reserves play Webber Falls today at Webber. FRANK STRAUSS FINDS THAT IT PAYS TO FERTILIZE In planting his fall crop of Irish potatoes, Frank Strauss found among other things that it pays to fertilize and to use only certified seeds. He planted a sack of Cobblers and harvested 75 bushels from the four rows which he had fertilized. He had another sack of red potatoes that were not certified. These did not do so well and he did not get a good stand. Only one row of the red potatoes were fertilized. This one row made as many potatoes as the other three rows that were not fertilized. KAFFIR CORN AND MAZE ARE PROFITABLE CROPS Frank Strauss, who lives west of town, says that he expects to harvest 25 loads of kaffir corn and maze' from nine acres this year. He says that this is a greater yield than corn would have shown and states that in the 7 years that he has grown these crops he has never had a failure. He recommends this crop to all farmers who have chickens and cows to feed. The stalk is sweet and makes excellent dry cow feed.
