PETITION SIGNED BY MAJORITY OF PROPERTY OWNERS Resolution Passed , by Board In Session Tuesday Night After being presented with a petition signed by a majority of the property owners On Division Street, the Board of Trustees of the Town ot Stilwell adopted paving resolution No. 2 at their regular meeting Tuesday night. The resolution declares the necessity of grading, drainage and paving of Division street from the west line of Front Street to the east line of Third Street and states that the estimates the Holway construction company have been examined and approved. A few weeks ago the board engaged the Holway Engineering Company of Tulsa to make the survey and estimate. The estimate was submitted to the property owners of Division Street and more than half of them have signed a petition asking the Board of Trustees to ask for bids to pave the three blocks named in the petition. According to the resolution passed Tuesday night property owners still have an opportunity to protest the paving for fifteen days after the notice has been published. If, however, the owners who have signed the petition asking for the paving] do not change their minds, sufficient protests cannot be filed to hold up the work of paving the three blocks on Division street. while they were here .

He will combine a stock of shoes with the business and also operate au1 it proved to be hefty enough to hang a 7 to 0 defeat on the Central High school grid crew when the two met on the siizling gridiron at Athletic park yesterday. The toutfbttown was made by a pass, quarterback to enflj and Trentham, who flung the pass, smashed the line for the extra* point. The locals made gains, plenty of 'em but wheh they got in easy scoring distance,, for some reason the play was always called against the right side �>' the Stilwell line, which was just the same as brushing up against a platoon of Strangled Lewises. Muskogee kicked'off and then heM nicely, forcing th)e visitors to kick, and they were plenty good at that act, as Arnold, massive center, booted consistently for many more yards than any kicker the Roughers uncovered. On his first try the big boy shot the pigskin sailing down the. field for 42 yards. Little Mac Shines A. McElreath, smaller - of the brother team, made a sensational return of the punt, sliding through the entire Stilwell team and golloping 31 yards before h> was overhauled. When tackled Mac dropped the ball, but. it was^ rescued by-Johnson. Mac made many pretty returns of punts before the game ended. The Roughers then began a march down the field that looked certain to end in a touchdown, but a fumble gave the visitors time to get their breaths and they were never again in danger during the first hall. While the Roughers were making their brilliant but brief drive, �E. Mc Elreath looked like Red Grange, but he didn't look so good when he let the ball trickle from his grasp. As the game wore on the superiority of the Stilwell kickers began to be noticeable. Captain Charley Jones was at a disadvantage in punting, as the visitors bowled his line over and swarmed upon him frequently. Plot TMckens Late in the third quarter me Central skipper attempt to kick, but the ball boomed against the hreast of a charging Stilwell linesman and was recovered by a Stilwell player on the Rougher 30-yard line. About that time the quarter was over and while the Roughers were, taking a shot el water the visitors plenned their downfall. On the very first play of the last quarter; Trentham, - StUwell quarterback, rifled a pass to Adair, end that was good for 20 yards and then Adair trotted serenly along for the final 10 yards, a victory for his team and a dark blot on the eBcutchen of tWe C�n-tralities. � Then came a series of mishaps lor the locals. Penalties, illegal plays and frostrated smashes against the eoBd Stilwell line; stopped the green-s��fe� boys several times just a* h appeared that they would crash' over Jot a dhjance to tie the count.!  Boys Gain Confidence After Defeating Muskogee Last . ,|| � Week If - [II With a 7 to 0 win over Muskogee; Central High School under their belt, the Stilwell Pirates will go into the;|l game with Rogers, Arkansas High!| school today with new confidence-$ and some new players. | The probable lineup for the game  today is: Left end .................. Curtis Left Tackle ................ Lemlng;| Left Guard............ Cap. Scofield| Center.......... ....... Arnold J Right Guard ........ Baldridge! Right Tackle .......... J. Sixkiller Right End.................. Adair Quarterback ............Trentham Left Half.............. Langley. || Right Half ................ Fletcherfl Fullback ............ G. Sbikuler.|| Langley and Baldridge are new men f that will have their first tryout in[ this game. Langley looks good at halt; and if he plays the game like he does in practice, he is going to be hard to catch for some of the older men. Fletcher and Adair play consistently; good football and look better than: ever this week. Just a word for the olds reliable center, Arnold. The Muskogee yarn shows that Arnold is perhaps thei. best punter in the conference because || Stilwell shows up with 11 punts for an average of 31 yards each.. In fact, those who have been watching >he workouts each afternoon each week cay that McLemore ha3 the team l| in beltei shape this week than they.1 have ever seen them. The line is a solid wall and the backfielc is beginning to know how to get through a hole cfter it is made. The Coach has been working on some new plays this week that are calcu-| lated to make R jgers i little dizz, McLemore is playing the game this! year on the prinriual that the fighter! is the m�n who needs to be on thei field- and is having some excel'ent results. The mer. havt come to real'ze that they can hold their'position only by working hard every day-and most of them are doing that very thing. Rogers comes with a repution of having one of the strongest teams in Northwest Arkansas, having beaten Watts last week by a large count. We are not oyer confident but we predict'j the following score: I StUwell......................... 2p| Rogers ........................ 7j Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Rogers and! their guest, Mrs. H. C.
