Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - November 29, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma "The Watch Dog of Justice and Right-' THE REAL JOB Progress cannot be built upon a rotten foundation. " Let's Clean up ' and Build up Adair County ADAIR COl)NTY$ LEADING NEWSPAPER A GOOD NEWSPAPER "\ � IN A GREAT COMMUNITY VOLUME ftUMBSR 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29,1929 NUMBER 42 M'LEMORE WINS HIGH PRAISE IN FOOTBALL WORK Players and Fans Satisfied Even When Team Finishes Far From Top This Season (By the Sport Editor i Etnmett McLcmore, coach of the Stil well Pirates for the past two years, has built up a record that he should be proud of and one that reflects much honor on the town and school here. We will not attempt to chroncile the history of the past football season this week, but we pause to call attention of our readers to the work McLemore has done. Carrying over only one man from laBt year's backfield, he has built fight ing machine that has held some mighty strong teams to a tie or a very close win. The pirates fought Muskogee Central high to a tie and let Wagoner, the probable state champions, beat them by only six points. Various set backs and injuries throughout the year with a lim: ited supply of reserves to pick from, has made it' mighty hard for Mac to keep the team as close to the top as it is. A recent issue of -Colliers Weekly mentioned McLcmore as a player on Jim Thorpe's famous team. He has many years of playing and working in the coaching game behind him and has become the envy of the* N. O. A. A. conference. That he* has taught the boys to play the game for the love of the sport is shown by the following letter which io but one of many that he has received during the past season: "I want to congratulate you and your high school, football boys and Pep Girls who visited us last week for the high type of sportsmanship displayed "by them while here. "Your high school and your town is to be congratulated for having a coach who believes in athletics for athletic's sake and for the sport that goes with it rather than some who always play to win. Our citizens have been high in their praise for you and your boys. You have a squad of well-coached play ers. I have never seen a more friendly game betwen hvo high schools as that played on our gridiron last Friday, where the spirit of comradeship and sportsmanship was uppermost in the minds of the boys. "Again I want to congratulate you and compliment ybU for the kind ojf team you put out. We are looking forward to our visit to Stilwell next November." Very Truly Yours, W. E. WHITE, Supt. Haskell City Schools. CHASE WILL RUN Atty. W. L. Chase tells us that he does "choose to run" for district judge and will make his announcement soon. There is no qestion as to his ability and we predict would make the district a judge to be proud of.-Westville Record. CHOIR LEADER E. A. PETROFF EVANGELIST Why Not a Whiteway? (An Editorial) Nof that the contract has been let for paving and in view of the fact that the work will probably be postponed until after danger of freezing is over why not make plans now to install a whiteway at the same time the paving is put in? There is no legitimate argument against a whiteway for the three blocks of main street and Stilwell will have it sooner or later. If installed at the same time the paving is put in 90 percent of he labor cost will be saved. According to specification for the paving, sidewalks will be widened two feet on each side of the street and the whiteway posts could be put on this extension. ^ We arc not saying that widening the sidewalks was the wise thing to do but the engineers said it was best and they ought to know. The sidewalk on the south side Is not straight and would' have to be cut down in places if both walki were not widened. Be that as it may we should work out some way to get a whiteway put in when the streets are paved because it is the wise andi logical thing to do both from a standpoint of appearance of the town and the cost of installing. The engineer who made the estimate and survey on the paving has agreed to furnish the Democrat with a rough estimate of the cost of a whiteway for the three blocks that are to be paved and; we will have more to say just as soon as We hear from them. AN EAGLE Rev. Petroff is preaching a series of sermons in a revival at the First Baptist church here. For further particulars see the article under the head of First Baptist church. PIRATES DEFEAT IRONHEADS 13-0 HERE LAST WEEK Towry, Zoller and Trentham the Spotlight in Scoring the Counters Take Dozen Banks Close Doors in East Oklahoma Frozen Assets Are Blamed For Failure  By Shull As Examiners Take Charge (From Muskogee Pheonix ) STILWELL, Nov. 22.-A versatile plunging, running, and passing attack carried the strong Stilwell Pirates to a 13 to 0 win over Eufaula; here this afternoon. Stilwell's scoring came as the result' of two determined marches; doWn the field frorH wjthin their own territory. The first touchdown was pushed over in the second quarter after the Pirates had taken the ball from their own 15-yard line to the Ironhead 15-yard line on line bucks and end runs by Trent-ham and Fletcher. Trentham passed 15 yards to Towry, Stilwell left end, for the touchdown. Trentham plunged the ball over the line for the extra point. The other marker was also scored rom the 15-yard line on an end run by Zoller, left halffi after the Pirates had carried the ball from their own 40 yard liner to the scoring position, Tren tham afgaih, plunged the line, but the point was disallowed when a teammate was offside. Several other determined efforts to score by the fast-moving easterners were warded off by the fighting Iron heads. Just before the final whistle blew, Langley, Stilwell qarterback intercepted a pass on his own goal line and ran 80 yards before he was downed With the ball in scoring position, the Ironheads held until the whistle ended the game. Only herculean efforts by the Iron heads when Stilwell had the ball almost on the goal line, kept the score from being jnuch larger. Stilwell scored 20 first downs to Eufaula's three, -and made 240 yards from scrimmage as compared to 28 for the Iron-heads. Arnold, Stilwell center, punted five times for an average of 30 yards. Bur-hus and Day punted four times for an average of 25 yard for Eufaula. C. C.

Consistently out playing the visitors on first downB, punts and line plunges the Stilwell Pirates played the Sequoyah Indians of Park Hill training . school to a scoreless tie on the local field yesterday afternoon. Stilwell missed two splendid chances to score and were on the ten yard line when the whistle blew for the end of the game. One of the sensational features of the game was the punt by Arnold, Stil well center, for a total gain of 80 yards. Stilwell made 13 first downs while the Indians made seven; Stilwell attempted 11 pasBes and completed four for 36 yards but the Park Hill eleven tried numerous air attacks, attempting 17 passes and completing seven for a total of 66 yards. Arnold punted 6 times for a total of 290 yards while Park Hill got only 190 yards in 7 trys. -The third quarter was a punting duel while the last was featured by Park Hill's sensational air attack in a final struggle to score, and the line plunging of Trentham. Fletcher and Langley showed up mighty well in this game and Adair was in position to become the hero of the hour if he could have gotten under some of the difficult passes that he attempted to catch. The Pirate line was solid and waa, rarely broken through. The backfield worked fast and with a single break they would have, gone over the Indian's goal line. 'It was a great game and it has been a great season for the boys. They are to be congratulated for finishing the season with such a good record and with the experience they now have they are mighty good material for a championship team next year.
