STILWELL, OKLAHOMA,FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1929 ____f NUMBER I PIRATES GO TO STIGLER TODAY FOR 5TH GAME Dope Gives Stilwell Team 7-Point lead over Panther Team The Stilwell pirates left this morning for Stigler where the fifth game of the season and the second conference game will be played. Several fans accompanied them. The team is in good shape and should make an excellent showing at game today. The Sallisaw defeat upset the dope somewhat but the team is expected to work better on a dry field. Below is a story from the daily papers written by a Stigler correspondent which gives their side of the story: The Stigler high school Panthers and the Stilwell crew will clash here Friday afternoon in a Northwest Oklahoma Athletic association battle promises to give spectators a complete idea of what thrills emanate from a football game. Last year these two great gridiron forces met and when hostilities ceased the score stood 0 to 0. Friday the teams will be evenly matched again. The Pirates conquered Muskogee, 7 to 0, the Panthers fought the Muskogee crew to 0 to 0 draw. The fact that the Panthers played a game the day before they met Muskogee leaves the two elevens on even terms it is pointed out. Both teams have strong lines, but the Panthers are given the edge m Bcoring ability, because of the efforts of Roberts and Dukes, backfield aces. If Stigler is to capture the conference flag, the Panthers cannot lose a single game. A defeat Friday would practi-caly cast them aside as Wagoner and Sallisaw have perfect records. Our prediction: Stilwell'7; Stigler 0. --:-' A. R. LOSH FAVORS Wl'DER RIGHT-OF-WAYS IN FUTURE THE TURNIP CHAMPION W. F. Ellis made the office a present of half a dozen nice large turnips last Saturday. They looked nice, tasted good and were an all round practical gift. Many thanks, Mr. Ellis. Rev. J. M. Haygood, pastor of the First Baptist church here, saw our prize gift turnips said that he raised bigger turnips than those in his back yard. We told him to produce the goods-and he did. Not so many but somewhat larger. Guess the best thing to do is to offer a years subscription to the person who brings the biggest turnip to the office this fall. Bring them in and let's see who the champion turnip grower of Adair county is. -------- OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 12.-In an address at Dallas; April 25, 1929 A. R. Losh, now.Oklahoma's chief high way engineer, discussed before the American Society of Civil Engineers his ideas on highway location. In brief these are the selection of the shortest distance between points, the avoidance of local congestion, both in cities and townB, and the purchase of much wider rights of way. Losh this week prepared copies ot this address for the Oklahoma press. Inasmuch as Losh has ben exceedingly chary about giving interviews, it is certain he did not give out his address at this time without having consulted the state highway commission. Thus Losh's view undoubtedly represent the intention of the present commission in the building of new roads. That means that the missing of small towns, about which there has been considerable complaint, will be en couraged in the future, even more than in the past. It means too that even in cities an effort will be made to route through traffic around the town rather than through it, as a means of expediting through traffic, and preventing increased local congestion. Losh has broad views as to rights of way. Even 100 feet highways, which the present commission has decided to acquire in all future construction, are not enough for him. He would have the state acquire much wider sections, especially at intersections, and at curves. He thinks it possible for the state to lease, at low cost, for long term, considerable strips, especially in scenic sections, so the view may not be cluttered up with billboards, sandwich shops and filling stations. He hopes the time will come when the state commission will have supervision over construction along the road. Losh's whole' plea is based on his theory that the right of way is the only permanent feature of the highway. Whatever surfacing is laid is only temporary. Within a few years at most it. will have to be replaced or changed The right of way, however, once established is mos.t difficult to change. The country builds itself aound the highway. Therefore the location should be studied with the greatest of care^ "The resulting location," he says, "should be adequate for the present and prospective future : needs of the Here 4 There By A. C.

All three charges struck Roberts, taking effect about the face the side and in the leg. Roberts was 35 years old and is survived by his wife and two children. Gann is the 18-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Gann of the Greasy Creek community. Gann says that Roberts had abused his father and threatened him the day before and that he did the shooting because he felt that he was protecting his father. A NEWSPAPER LOYALTY Lindbergh and his party have sighted new Mayan ruins in the jungles of Guatemala. These ruins and other discovered in past years, are all that is left of an old civilization dating back according to archeologist, to the first century, A. D. The Mayas are one of the mystery races of the world. They either died out from some pestilential disease or left their homes suddenly, leaving their belongings behind them, Explorers in the jungles of Central America find the traces of their homes and temples, and rate them as the high est civilization that the Americans saw prior to the coming of the Spaniards. The bride helped her husband to cake. "That is a devil's food cake, dear," she said after he had tasted it. "yes, I thought it tasted like hell," he said with no uncertain amount ot conviction.

COSTLY FUMBLES LOSE GAME FOR STILWELL TEAM Stilwell Unable to Score with Ball on Three-Yard Line Three Times FRIDAY'S FOOTBALL RESULTS Running a newspaper even. in Stilwell, gets into the blood and becomes to the editor almost a game. The cash register keeps accounts of the "hits" but the runs scored 'are mostly to the credit of the Adair County Democrat which owes it's improvements to the fact that its operators like the game rather than the cash.  A large business man, talking the other day, stated that he travelled over much of the United States and that what struck him-mostxif all in JSs journeys was the loyalty of the average newspaper to its home.

After making ten first downs to Sal lisaw's two and placing the ball on the 3 yard line three times during the game, the Pirates were still unable to score in the game here last Friday. The pirates tore the Black Diamond line into shreds, they made gains at will they outplayed the visitors all through the game, but fumbles at the most inopportune times let he Salli-sawites go home with a 7 to O win in their pockets. Following is an account from the Muskogee Daily Phoenix: STILWELL, Oct. 11.-Fumbles proved costly here this afternoon for Stilwell as Sallisaw forged to a 7 to 0 victory on a muddy field. Stilwell out played the visitors but was unable to furnish the scoring punch at the crit ical moments. Stilwell placed the ball within the three-yard line at three different times during the game, losing possession ot the pigskin twice on fumbles and once on downs. Sallisaw's line weakened in the last quarter and the local gridsters ran their total of first downs up to ten. Sallisaw was credited with only two first downs. Starr, Sallisaw halfback, gave his team the winning margin when he raced around left end for 30 yards and a touchdown. Harris added the extra point on a line plunge. Stilwell took the opening kickoff and made four first downs before losing the ball on a fumble. Rain fell all during the second half. ,  Trentham, Langley, B. Adair and Arnold played outstanding ball for Stil. well, with Gilbert, Harris, Moore and Wheeler starring for Sallisaw. Stilwell 0; Sallisaw 7. Wagoner 32 Eufaula 7. Haskell 20; Pryor 0.
