Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - April 12, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma ADAIR eOUSfYlS BEST PLACE IN STATE FOR DAIRY FARMS] By Arthwr Brisbane HOOVER'S HOME ECONOMY 89 YEARS OLD, 89 MILLION. KAHN LOSES TITTA RUFFO FOCH IS DEAD President Hoover,' believing that economy should begin � at home, will put the Presidential yacht, Mayflow-out of commission. The President will do his yachting in a rowboat when fishing.' The country will save $300,000 a year, and 148 sailors that have wasted their time on the May flower will be assigned to new naval vessels. \ ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, 'APRIL 12, 1929. NUMBER 10. Work Gaining in SCHOOL BOY.S CATCH OWL; NO BITES EITHER WAY Home Demonstration Agent -describes work among, women of the county and gives some of the plans she Has in mind for this county. The Mayflower has been added to the cost of maintaining a president since the days of Theodore Roosevelt, and President Hoover's determination to discontinue a thoroughly undemocratic arrangement will be generally appreciated. The people would not grudge a good President any comfort or luxury, but a $300,000 yacht tacked on to a' $75,000 salary seems fantastic. George F. Baker, dean of American bankers, ruler of the gigantic First National of New York, which is one of his minor possessions, has celebrated his eighty-ninth birthday. For every year that he has lived, Mr. Baker has given at least a million dol lars to education and other good purposes. Everybody wishes him many more years to get and give. Since the people do not yet know enough to develop their own resources and supply what they need, is fortunate that they have such men as Baker, Rockefeller and other to show them how. Otto H. Kahn, protector 'of grand opera, learns that his enemy is the talking moving picture. That must surprise him as much as it surprised the seventy-foot dinosaurs when the ^ats ate them. Metro-JGojldwyn-Meyer (have' (take"h Titta Ruffo from Mr. Kahn's Metropolitan Opera to sing for the movies, and it was as simple "as taking candy from a child." Mr. Ruffo sings ten times before a recording machine and is paid $350,000 or $35,Cj00 for each short singing period. Even the Metropolitan's diamond horseshoe cannot compete with that. .Marshal Fpch is dead. Farewell to a great warrior, a true man. He has gone and taken his wages-a name that will live .in; history and the eter-..' nal gratitude of his countrymen. In command of all the allied armies, , he had 10,000,000 men under his command, by far the greatest army gathered together since men first began wholesale killing. i And his motto, that every man should adopt was: "The offensive always." Allons, "Let us go," was the last word uttered by Marshall Foch. It .isi the first word of the .French national hymn that he heard so often, the hymn to which the Revolutionary ^soldiers marched from the south of to Paris. "Allons enfants de la patrie," etc. The last words of great men, piously collected, have little value. The great men probably did not know wha J they were saying. Mehr licht, "more light" were the last words of Goethe. Frederick the Greafs last words are supposed to be "tete, d'armee," "head of the army." He often spoke French in preference to German. Pitt, whose genius kept Napoleon out of England, said as [ tie died, "My country, how I leave thee." He was worried about the future. What a man does while he lives is more important that what tie says when he dies. Miss Ruth Smith, home demonstra tion agent for Adair and Cherokee counties, has organised home demon stratiori clubs, Or farm woMen's clubs at Bunch and Christie attd Will meet the women of �ion community today to organize a third club. Miss Smith reports good interest among the women in th� communities where she has worked and believes the clubs will be of great benefit to the members. The clubs have expressed special in terest in the work of gardening and the use of the pressure cooker. Communities which desire one of these clubs are requested to get in touch with Miss Smith at an early date so that'she may complete the organizations. Since she meets 30 club a month in the two counties, her time is limited. In speaking - of the Home Demonstration clubs,-Miss Smith had the following to say: "Home demonstration clubs in Oklahoma are organized for a three fold purpose. First, to study home makings which is the great profession of all professions; second, to offer farm women an opportunity for self-development; and third, to advance community interests and life.. " "Thinking women everywhere arc realizing, that they have a greater need of scientific knowledge of how to clothe and feed the family, of home building, and the beautification of the home, of thrift, of saving strength and time, of the prevention and cure of diseases, of child welfare work and of community needs and- how to meet them..; "To aid in meeting this need, programs on the various phases of home economics covering four years are offered. It is generally expected that clubs that have used these programs for four years should then be able to make their own programs, and such a club should have a program committee appointed for that purpose. "Farm women usually have some time in read--they have .am-pie time for thinking and can well afford with all other working women to spend more time in thinking about better home making . and in considering ways and means of meeting such an end. But as a rule farm women have too few opportunities of expressing themselves and joining in sensible discussions of their own problems. In fact, these opportunities are so very jfew that only a very few farm women have the ability to express themselves in a manner fhaj is at all commensurate with their value as workers and thinkers. .The opportunity which the farm women's club offers to farm women in self development along these lines is, therefore, a Thursday afternoon a number of the' boys of U. G. No. 1 discovered a large horned owl trying to catch a rabbit in brushpile. The boys descended en masse on the owl and made the catch. The exact formation "used" by the boys, whether it was German wedge, end run or off tackle play, Was not stated, but it "got !the bacon"-or the owl-take it or leave it. Sajd owl is now reposing in the window of the Fletcher Hardware, much to his disgust; He is destined to become the mascot of U. G. No. 1-stuffed-not the way turkeys are stuffed, however. H. A. Lucas, superintendent of U. G. No. 1, who told us the story, says that no one was bitten on either side.

GOOD WILL YOUR BEST ASSEfT, MR. MERCHANT Starting Saturday morning C.

Mr. Seroy states that he has close-out the stock of ^merchandise'to the bar.e walls of the build ing. jle states that he already has two j prospective renters in chain store organizations. C. A. Worley has one of the largest stocks of merchandise in Stilwell and plans to offer it to the people here at a decided reduction. Mr. Worley states that his ginning business requires a lot of his time and as he plans to .put another gin in New Mexico, he feels that it is necessary for him to dispose of his business here. --- Clean seed and a carefully planned syste mof rotation are the only means of preventing loss from anthrocnose, wide spread and destructive disease of cotton, says F. M. Rolfs, of the Oklahoma A, and M. college. More than 20 farmers and business men of the county have expressed themselves as willing to go on a tour to the A. .& M. college at Stillwater April 24, 25, and 26, according to Harry Hayman, county agent. According to present plans, the party will leave Stilwell Wednesday morning and visit/a poultry and dairy farm between here and Muskogee where they will be the guests of the Muskogee Chamber of Commerce at lunch. ' After inspecting other interesting farms in the' afternoon, they will be guests of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce for supper and will continue on to Stillwater that night. Thursday will be spent on the college farm where the men will visit those projects that they are especially interested in. The return trip will be made Friday by way of the famous Miller Bros. 101 Ranch, according to present plans. Goodwill is the best asset any * business can possess today.

More than fifty farmers; businessmen and agricultural specialists gather-ed at Westville Monday for this meeting where they were the guests of the Westville Chamber of Commerce. Following the- luncheon Mr. Osborne talked on soils and drops and slated that Adair county's first major ;| problem was to terrace the rolling land and secondly to put back the humus that had.been allowed to wash;; away. '  v: He lauded the potential dairy possi-:| bilities of the county and pointed out that this was the route to prosperity for our farmers.
