Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - October 25, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma Stattnouwt "Cussed by a hew = Discussed by Many = Read by All" THE REAL JOB Progress cannot be built upon a rotten foundation. Let's Clean up and Build up Adair County ADAIR COUNTY'S LEADING NEWSPAPER A GOOD NEWSPAPER IN A GREAT COMMUNITY VOLUME NUMBER 32. STILWELL, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1929 NUMBER 37 PIRATES LOSE TO PANTHERS IN TOUGH GAME $tigler Scores in First and Both Teams in Last Quarter of Game FRIDAY'S FOOTBALL RESULTS Stilwell 6; Stigler 12. Sallisaw 0; Wagoner 32. Eufaula 14; Tahlequah 7. Haskell 20; Morris 0. GAMES TODAY Heavener at Sallisaw. Wagoner at Checotah. Eifaula at Haske'l. The Pirates lost the second conference game of the season to Stigler on the latter's field Friday. A weakend Pirate line, by illnes and knockoutt materially added to Stigler's gains but the Pirates held them remarkably well. We give below the report of the game as published in the Muskogee Daily Phoenix for Saturday. STIGLER, Oct. 18-A great Panther team, led by the courageous come back of "Shorty" RobertB, who almoBt unaided slashed his way to the decisive touchdown after the Stilwell Pirates had tied the score at 6 to 6 in the final period, oufought their arch rivals today, in one of the most vivid games ever staged on the fairgrounds gridiron. Less than five minutes after the whistle had announced the first kick-off of the Northeastern Oklahoma con ference crucial clash, Stigler had swept the durnfounded Pirates over their goal line, and counted the first touchdown of the game, the only one to be scored for three quarters. It was Roberts-bobbing, shifting, stepping Roberts-who evaded the Pirates on the first play of the game to dazzle the good crowd of spectators with a 30-yard sprint. Dukes, who was pushed out of the day's limelight only by the sparkling glamour of Roberts I hit again for seven yards, and the ball was on the Pirates 11-yard line, Stilwell momentarily halted the Panther's attack by snatching up Goin's fumble. Pirates Grow Worried But Arnold's beautiful 60-yard punt was called back, and Stigler penalized five yards for offside, then he kicked again to Stilwell's 40-yard line, with a return of 12 yards. Roberts carried the ball again for 17 yards and to the Pirate's 8-yard line, and after Stigler had received a five-yard penalty. Dukes, after seemingly teasing the Pirate tacklers by stepping directly in their paths, and then pivoting out ot danger, erased the goal line. Roberts failed in his attempt to run the ball over for extra point. The Pirates were by this time plenty worried, b'ut after seeing the Panthers fumble a couple of times, decided that they were human after all, and for the remainder of the quarter and the next played headsup ball. Immediately after the intermission, Stilwell was at its best, and after getting a break on a blocked punt in the center of the field, started a' concerted drive that resulted in a tally in the first few seconds of the final period. G. Sixkiller, Indian fullback, bore the brunt of the Pirates' offensive march, and with Trentham slipping in at the nick of time to put the ball over for a first and ten, the Pirates reached the Panther's one-yard line, where they were stopped on downs. Arnold's punt was good for only 25 yards, and a pass Trentham to Adair, which he snagged off the ground, placed the Pirate-, in scoring position again. A penalty and line bucks ran the ball over, with Sixkiller getting the credit. 1 At this time, Roberts, who had been removed with an injury early in the first frame, rushed back in, just in time to knock down Stilwell's try for extra point by air. Back Comes Roberts Roberts' reentrance into the game worked miracles with the broken Pan. thers, and a 20 yard pass, by the, sturdy fullback to Goins that was made while being chased down by three or four Pirates, was the turning point, Stigler snapping out of their lassitude to drive down half the length of the field for the winning touchdown. It was Roberts carrying the ball in every piay--7-,7-5-6-3-S yards until the tenyard Btripe was reached.' A pass to Dukes sent the ball hurtling to bis waiting arms, and the game might have well stopped there. With five men in their line either ailing of injuries or illness, the Pirates put up a remarkable fight> and consistent battering of the weak right wing of the Panther forward wall nearly resulted in victory for them.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Oct. 22.- Tosh Bean, a deputy sheriff of Dutch Mills, west of here, was in a hospital here Tuesday night with three gunshot wounds as other reputies continued their search for John Walker, said to have fired the shots that wounded Bean.

The deputy approached the home of Walker and commanded the man to surrender, he said. Walker fired three times, two of the shotB taking effect in each thigh and the third striking the officer in the left shoulder as he fell. Walker shielded himself behind a woman as he fired, preventing the officer from returning the shots, Bean told Sheriff Henry Walker Tuesday. The deputy was brought to a hospital here following the shooting and his condition was not considered serious late Tuesday. Deputy Harley Gover of Fayette-ville, and other deputies continued their search for Walker throughout the day Tuesday. A youth is also being sought in connection with the robbery of Glenn but had no connection with the shooting. Uncle.

DEMOSS-THOMPSON ARE FREED BY JURY IN SPEEDY VERDICT Two prominent film stars are accused of trying to evade payment of income tax by listing $2,000 they spent for booze as "entertainment" and "advertising." They are right. The .boo* was to entertain their friends and advertise their bootlegger. -i- "Wanted-50,000 skinny men." They, wouldn't advertise for skinny women, for none of them will admit it. HOME OF EDITOR DESTROYED BY FIRE Last Saturday at 12:30 the home ot Cas A. Carr at 215 Shawnee street was almost completely destroyed by fire which resulted from an oil cook stove exploding. The contents were practically all destroyed, even the clothing of Mrs. Carr and the children. Editors are not supposed to have any clothes so personally the editor's loss was not very great.

Glass-; cock, Wesley. -:-8-- Mrs. Jarson Finch - accompanied several members of the peppette squad to Stigler for the football game last Friday. Alfred DeMoss, Tulsa deputy United States marshal, and Willie Thompson Mayes county deputy sheriff last night were acquitted of the murder of Chas. Jenkins, Cherokee County farmer, whom DeMoss admitted shooting to death on August 20. The jury was out approximately 10 minutes. The verdict apparently was based on a decision that the officers acted in line of duty, when the deputy marshal shot three times and killed the fleeing farmer. Before the jurymen left the box to deliberate whether the accused officers were to'go free or suffer a punishment which could have meant the death penalty, they were charged with the law involved by Federal Judge Franklin E. Kennamer. After the jurist read informations in which both DeMoss and Thompson charged in state court of Cherokee county with the willful murder of the farmer, he stated to the jury the admitted facts presented in the trial. Judge Kennamer said that both sides agreed the defendants were officers and that they bore warrants which charged Jenkins with felonies. He said that the law was not concerned with whether the felony warrants charged violation of federal prohibitory laws or of any other federal statutes. Under the prevailing law, Judge Kennamer said, an officer has the right to take the life of a fleeing man. He said that the fact an officer who permits a man charged with felony, once in custody to escape with no effort at restraint, is himself quilty of a felony. No officer, however, the judge said, has a right to unncessarily kill a person. The officer, though, he said is not required, acting in the heat of passion, to systematically figure out the problem o'f force needed to prevent an escape. The only question before the jury, Judge Kennamer said, was whether the officer did what a reasonable prudent man would have done. Harry K. Thaw .Broadway playboy of other days, seemed pleased to bp haled into court in his old age to complaint of a night club hostess that he bit and spanked her. Probably being in court makes him feel that the halcy on days of his youth are not over yet. Yes, they get that way sometimes, around 60. According to sentences meted in two cases within the past 60 days, it is more of a crime to rob an establishment of $400 than it is to kill your wife! Earl Pracox got a life sentence for the murder of his wife; a youth in Tulsa, 17 years old was sentenced tc> the electric chair for robbery with firearms. And a woman, who killed her husband, gets 10' years. Can you beat that? Obviously, the price of human, lives is in the decline, with the lives of men selling at bargain counter prices. Chicago physicians are trying to discover Ponce de Leon's long lost fountain of youth. Certain products of the farm, sold in bottles, will make you feel and act younger for a time, but it doesn't last. One of the most modern ways to set world's records is to commit suicide by jumping off the highest building that can be found; Up to Oct. 20, the record was 54 stories. On that date a man set a new one, leaping CI stories from the top of one of the highest buildings in New York. However, he couldn't attend any receptions in hi3 honor after the feat. -- The disarmament conference may not accomplish anything except to keep the senator and congressmen cH the tariff for a While. J. M. Turubull was fc-und guilty and the jury recommended a sentence of ten years in the charge against him of | killing Henry- Templeton, near West- } ville, over a year ago. At the trial last year the jury dis-agred and Turnbull has been out on bond for several months. Geo. Leach was declared not guilty by the jury which tried him a3 an accomplice of Lincoln Wolfe and other who were accused of the death of a j man some three years ago. The jury of the Norvel StevenB case, , 17-year old youth of Watts who is be- j ing tried for killing a girl by firing into a covered wagon about a year ago, took the case under advisement about 10 o'clock Wednesday night.
