Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - March 22, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma 'mm 'COW MILKING TABLE. STAND OR RUN, YOU'RE SHOT. AN OFFER FOR COLIDGE. WHY NOT LINDBERGH. Farmers will be interested in the "fifty cow milking table." The information comes from Dr. J. H. McNeil, Chief of the New Jersey Bureau of Animal Industry. The milking ta ble is devised by the Walker Gordon company's New Jersey mil}: farm. It is the beginning of industrial /methods applied to milk production, A huge table like a small "round house" with fifty absolutely clean stalls on it, is made' to revolve, slowly. The cows walk on and off, while the table is in motion and soon get used to the new idea. To each cow an electrical milking device is attached as it enters its stall. At the end of one complete table turning, the cow, milked and "stripped," walks off the table at the spot where it walked on, and is immediately fed. Feed your cows always after milking. Feeding before milking taints the milk. Cows like the milk mass production idea,�the relief of milking, followed by the pleasure of eating, makes a pleasant combination. Farmers irjay take their cows to' cooperative milking lines, like the production line in an automobile factory. Workmen will stand still, cows slowly passing them, one man cleaning them free of dust by vacuum cleaner, made by Mr. Wooley of the American Radiator company.7 (Continued Next Week.) The Clean-up Program States that he is heartily in accord Witii platform of opponent and will Act when given authority. R. B. Worsham, candidate for reelection as City Justice of the Peace, slated Thursday that he was in full harmony with the clean-up program that has been set forth by one of his opponents. "As I mentioned last week, I have stood for everything that is best for the town and have executed every pro cess served in my court and worked generally for the upbuilding of the town, as far as my power goes," he said. . "I am for cleaning up the city and heartily endorse the clean-up program and if the 'Soard of Trustees will put the power in my hands' I will see that it is executed t6 the letter of the law or parties i-cf using'to do so will suffer the consequences," he continued. 'I am for a clean town morally and I most certainly would like to see the alleys and streets cleaner up. I will have rigid enforcement of cleaning up vacant lots and see that weed patches are cut this summer, as far as it is in my power to enforce it, if I am elected." Worsham said. "As.the law stands at present, it is necessary for someone else to start the action for these clean-rilp campaigns, but I am ready to follow to the end any movement that is started. I am also in favor of the Trustees giving more power to the City justice along this line." jie state. amtt m ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1929. NUMBER' ~m HENRY S. JOHNSTON SENATE COU T OUSTIN XEGUTIVE BALLOT WEDNESDAY CAME AS CLIMAX TO TRIAL BEFORE UPPER HOUSE THAT HAS RUN FOR TWO MONTHS. OKLAHOMA CITY, March 20.- The second successive elected governor of Oklahoma was removedfrom office Wednesday by the state senate court of impeachment. The vote was 35 to 9. The court found Johnston guilty of a charge of general incompetency, preferred by the house of representatives, and exhonerated him of nine other charges brought by the house; J. C. Walton, Johnston's elected predecessor, was removed in November, 1923. The vote for impeachment was: � -For:   Andrew's, v - Angtiii, Austin',' Blakley, Boyer, Commons, Easter, Ew-ing, Ferguson, Gidler, George, Gray, Gulager, Harper, 'Hill, Johnson of Creek, Jolly, Kimerer, Loofbourrow, McDonald, Moore, Otjen, Patton, Peck Powers, Gray, Smith, Stewart, Stiller, Storm, Terwiliger, Thomas, Wheatley, Williams and Williamson. Against: Clark, Darnell, Graham, Johnson of Pottawatomie, Nesbitt, Pullen, Reed, Rexroat, Rice. Total votes 35 for, 9 against. W. J. Holloway, lieutenant governor, was sworn, in as Johnston's successor by Chief Justice C. W. Mason of the state supreme court immediately after the senate court had completed its vote on the impeachmnet charges! Holloway had been acting governor since Johnston was suspended from office two months ago.' Johnston, who as late as Tuesday night, expressed confidence he would be restored to' office, received the verdict impassively. Mrs. JoHnston, who had been at his side almost constantly during the lengthy trial, made no derii-oristr'atoinl The senate vote Wednesday came as a dramatic climax to more than two years of political turbulence, which reached impeachment pitch late irt 1927- At that time, however, Johnston succeeded in dispersing hostile legislators by court action after they had sought to convene on their own call. Kight Closes Argument. Much of the fire against the Johnston: administration centered, on Mrs. O. O. Hammonds, whom he has established as his confidential secretary in (Continued on last page) By A.

Light plant he no good, but bettern what Rome people got what done sold it they light plant. Jake he favor law what say can, make it home brew in summer time an A PITIFUL PLIGHT (An Editorial) Monday afternoon a fire alarm was turned in when a grass fire at the Ed Woods home caught the house on fire. The damage was slight and the fire was put out with a couple of buckets o� water. That isn't the story at all-ithe moral is: What would, have happened if the fire had gained a little more headway with the fire truck in the slisne it was? '.' - . : When the fire boys started-for-the "truck they found two tires flat, : one tire off, no gasoline,'the ladders on the old'wagon and various other things missing. They, called for the Woodruff oil truck to drag the fire wagon to the fire. Jt was really a sight for sore eyes and any town with one iota of. pride!,or the least grain of common sense would not have let it take place the first time-and most certainly would not allow, it to be repeated. It is no wonder that oilr insurance irate is high and if there had been a state inspector here to see that parade, it would probably be doubled-and maybe it ought to be at that. Let's look the situation in the face. The boys who have served long and faithfully with the departmnet have received as remuneration the magnificent sum of S5 per year in the form of exemption from the street tax. They have answered calls at all hours of the day and night, and fought* till the last spark %vas out. They have saved thousands of ' dollars worth of property for Stilwell-and still they have that antiquated equipment to work with.  More than that, the boys have bought and paid for a large part of the equipment themselves by donation and with' the proceeds from their annual picnic. Further than that, they have bought and paid for a city park. If it is impossible for the city to provide more equipment, it is at least possible to fix the building where the truck is kept so that the gasoline will not be drained put and the hose cut up. That, is an outrage that should not be tolerated and it a good investment to hire. a guard to see thati; the equipment is kept in readiness for fire fighting. The intolerable, low down,  stinking skunk that would drain the gasoline from the city's only fire,truck should, be shot at the first sunrise. He is far worse than a traitor and is guilty of vandalism, arson, murder, larceny, treason, embezzlement, and any other crime that can be thought of. If there is a criminal that should be caught-it is that one.. The';same thing applies to. those who cut up the hose, stop up the ends with sticks, steal the .wrenches or molest the equipment in any way. ..,.'� If there is any way under the sun that a modern fire truck can be bought for Stilwell, it ought to be done. It mght take an election to change the constitution of. the United States,' but if that's what it takes,'the soonerit^s^sVarted.fhe better it will b,e. All other controversies fade into ^bliviqn when the question of e_fightinjL�.qu�PW�t^ is going to be little enough to stand to one side and say it is no concern of mine while the whole town is in flames? If there be such a man in-our fair town, then may "God have mercy.on his poor soul." fire who. P. A. Allison for City Treasurer * P. A. Allison has announced himself as a candidate for the office of City Treasurer and. is soliciting the vote of Stilwell citizens on the fact that he is well known as a man worthy and derserving and qualified! , ) "Most of the people in Stilwell know me and know that I stand for what is right arid honest," lie said. "I am too' far along the road of life to be any other way now, arid you-may rest assured that if elected I wil look, after the office in a manner. satisfactory to all concerned," he added. Many of Mr. Allison's friends urged him to get into this raee: and a- number of people are actively working for him now. He,has the pledged .support of many, of the substantial citizens of the town. Treasurer's Race Cut Down to Two Only two candidates were left ni the race for City Treasurer Thursday afternoon when Ed Woodruff and C L. Lynch announced that they would withdraw. Mr. Lynch, in. a statement concerning his withdrawal, said: "At the present time I do not feel that I would be able to give the : office  the' time it Would require since I am employed at Fletcher Hardware company. I thank my many friends for their pledged support arid assure you that I shall remember the many kind words you have had for my cause." Mr.. Woodruff, feels , that he . would not be able to give the time from his business that $he office would require and retires in favor of thsoe who have, the time.

It is called Hoover's Prosperity Cabinet 1 PARIS, March 20.-Marshal Ferdinand Foch died Wednesday, evennig almost in the twilight hours. The sun had not yet set and the marshal lay On a lounge near an open window. He was conscious and silent while the nurse was making up his bed. Dr. Davaniere said to the marshal, while the nurse was arranging his bed: "Monsieur Le Marechal, we are going to put you back in bed." The marshal replied: "Bien allons-y which may be translated. "All right, let's go ahead." t . '�-'�.;�'�� Suddenly there was a change in his face, a sudden twitching, he placed his hand on his heart, lay down on the bed and spoke no more. The world had known that the end of the great soldier was not far off. Yet when he died there came a throb of sorrow that encompassed the hearts of all men. With his passing the greatest military figure of the greatest of all wars disappeared. A small man, a frail man, Marshal Foch in his last fight displayed those qualities of grimhess, of determinatioiij of the will to win that distinguished him through all his years, from youth to gallant old ago. He was in his seventy-eighth year. Doctors Hear Scoffings. From day over the more than two months of> his illness, the marsahl had scoffed at the doctors, made light of his ailments, denounced the ministrations of his attendants, and spoke cheerily of his future plans--plans plans linked closely, with past cam^ paigns and war maps...
