Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - April 5, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma NATURE'S BALANCE THE PRICE*FOR PICTURES. EINSTEIN PUZZLE. THE  "FIVE AND TEN" LAW. It is dangerous to interfere .with na-ure's balance, one thing killing bth-ers, all kept in bounds, Yakima county, Washington, offered a bounty to exterminate hawks and owls and thousands were killed, to pro tect game birds and poultry. Cmuitii Itettuirrat ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER 1 VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, APRIL Jfr 192a. NUMBER 9. GOOD. ATTENDANCE IS REPORTED. AT REVIVAL Investigation (by government ex-; perts, examining hawk and owl insides found that the birds lived on snakes, grasshoppers, field mice, and ground squirrels, all dangerous to man, especially the ground squirrels that spread burbonic plague. Yakima has withdrawn the bounty. Kill off coyotes and foxes and you en courage a plague of field mice and jack rabbits. Montana made that discovery. The wise plan is to destroy the objectionable creatures by scientific means. Get rid of small vermin and the bigger nuisances will disappear. When we see news films we rarely realize the risks run by camera men. Those risks are great and occassion-ally death proves it. - At Daytona, Florida, M. Bible, trying for a new automobile speed record, was instantly killed when his car .was going 202 miles an hour. The crowd stood well back, watching the race, but Charles Traub, grind ing a newsreel camera, knew it was his duty to show the machine traveling four miles a minute, coming head on. He-Stood with his camera planted slightly to one side of the straight course. When the driver lost control the car leaped and rolled. It was top late for .Traub to save himself J His dead body was laid out beside that of the driver. That is the price paid sometimes for news pictures. Good attendance and intense interest are attending the Baptist revival which has been in progress at the First Baptist church this week, according to Rev. J. M. Haygood, pastor. Rev. G. R. Naylor, sta^te evangelist for the Baptist church is doing the preaching-and doing a good job of it, according to those who have been attending. The meeting will continue through next week, according to present plans, Mr. Haygood said. Governor Holloway signs Bill creat ing 3-man' highway board; Wollard Resigns, then with C. E. Dudley is Returned to affairs board. Professor Einstein, fifty years old, retired with his wife from public view, to think about relativity and the fourth dimension and wo^ider\ why people make such a fuss over him. He is especially amazed at the great interest in his discoveries in the United States. And he well may be. Not ten men in the United States understand them. PRESENT ADMINISTRATION GARRISON GETS $110 FROM 325 HENS DURING MARCH Plans Economy CAMPAIGN Declares Appropriation Bills Must be Kept Lower in Future. What Will Rogers calls the "Five and Ten Prohibition law," five years in jail and $10,000 fine, went into effect in Chicago, and the first man caught in the Jones net was Carl Mahnke, a policeman. The Chicago fed era! district attorney expects 250 indictments per month. Impressive figures prove that the radio has come to stay with a vengeance. During 1928 retail sale9 of radio appar. atus totalled $70,877,517. The extent to which radio has transformed human life and enlarged its possibilities is understood as little, as the importance of printing was understood when Gutenberg began setting up his movable type. Printing opened all the knowledge of the world to everybody that could read. Radio offers the speeches, music and information of the world to everybody able to listen. OKLAHOMA CITY, April 4.-Lev/ Wentz, P.onca City oil operator, this afternoon conditionally accepted the position of chairman of the state high way commission for the six-year term. Immediately after he had formally.accepted the job, Gov. Holloway signed the new state highway commission,Jbill, then signed the commission to Wentz, and turning to newspaper emn said "I am the happiest governor in the United States over the action of Mr. Weritz in "accepting the position. I will count it the most outstanding act of my administration, regardless of what follows the rest of the term." | The condition imposed by Wentz is that he shall not be bound if at the end of 90 days he finds his business is such Jthat he cannot handle, and the highway job and do justice to the highway work. - Second of Day. The appointment of Wentz to the highway commission was the second big appointment made during the day by Governor Holloway. After a conference during the forenoon, with Chairman Gus Wollard of the state board of affairs and Hubert Bolen,.the governor announced Wollard had resigned as chairman of the board of affairs and the governor named Judge C. E. Dudley of Antlers chairman of the board. Governor Holloway then appointed Wollard to the board to fill the democratic vacancy created by the resignation of J. Robert Gilliam of Ardmore during the impeachment trial of Governor Johnston. -_-- MARRIAGE LICENSES Only one marriage license was issued this week from the office ^of the Court Clerk. That was issued to Lee Guthrie, 3$,' Stihtell, and Mrs. Lune Brock, 30, Big Cabin. R. B. 'Worsham, Justice 'of the Peace Is only man reelected; other candidates lose by almost 200 votes; 581 Is largest vote cast. OKLAHOMA CITY, April 1.-Gov ernor Holloway intends to institute a program of ecohoiiay which will jk^ep operating expenses of the state "within the estimated revenues for the" next two years, he told members of the Gibbons club here tonight. ' The governor expects to know, within a few days, what this estimated revenue will be, he said. "And when the gang gets here," he added, referring to the special session of the legislature he expects to call, "I'm going to say, 'now you boys sharped your pencils and get down to it. The state government can be'fun on-less than it has in the past, and than it is run now. I will not approve ap propriation bills for anything in excess of the estimated revenue, if I have! to use a second-hand flivver to ride in, and attend to correspondence in long hand.* " Holloway then asked for the help of the club members. I need your help. I have been for eight years in statewide politics. They have been the most enjoyable and most strenuous of my 40 years of life.-Since this high office has been thrust upon me, my sole ambition is to servei'JiijjiW orably and efficiently; my hope fs that: at the end of two years I will stuf have my self respect and the respect of my wife and son. There is no excuse for inefficiency in government," he added. "People who can't function might as well give up now and retire to plowing. "There will be no monkey business in Oklahoma, insofar as conduct of the governor's office is concerned;.no juggling of contracts; no favors to this or that powerful "higher-up/ Four doors are open to my office and you're welcome at all times, with suggestions to help. But don't come if selfish interests, prompt, and donft) try back doors, for there are none leading to the governor's office." Professor Card, of Philadelphia, says women will soon wear dresses made of asbestos, fireproof, shiny as silk, more durable than any cloth, easily cleaned with a wet cloth, costing less than oth. er materials. CARD OF THANKS All interesting, but women probably won't wear asbestos. Imitation pearls are as handsome as real pearls. Synthetic rubies and sapphires are made exactly like the real. But woman insists on having the real. BOOST As we boost, so shall we reap. Each and every boost we give this community, whether it be in our intercourse with home folks or with Strangers, will return to us many fold in increased community betterment. Never has a community had too numy boosters; It keeps the interest of all aroused. It gets things done that benefit the community as a whole and each member of the community as an individual. The time to boost is every day. The opportunity to boost is always present. Read what the merchants and professional men 'of this city have to say about boosting. Lets all go along together.
