The Aggies started the scoring in the opening quarter, but thereafter the locals' fine defensive work kept their goal line uncrossed. A pass from Trentham, quarterback, to Adair, halfback, in the final quarter was good for a touchdown and a chance to knot the score, but the kick failed, leaving Stilwell a point behind. Adair and Trentham were the big guns ift- the locals' backfield, 'While Arnold, Leming and Ccofield played, well is: the line. Hatley, Rogers and C. Nicholson were outstanding lights for the Aggies.

Norris Delivers AddresB on Farm Conditions in His Part of State Below we are reproducing a speech delivered, by P. A. Norris, owner of Horseshoe Ranch located Tri Pontotoc county and printed in the current issue of the Oklahoma Marketing Bulletin: "When every farmer in the South shall eat bread from his fields and meat from his own pastures and disturbed by no creditor, and enslaved by no debt shall sit amidst his teeming gardens and orchards and vineyards and dairies and barn yards,' pitching Ms crops in his own wisdom and-growing them in 'independence,' making cotton his clean surplus, and selling it in his own time, and his chosen market and not at a master's bidding-getting his pay in cash and in a recipted mortgage that discharges his debt, but does not restore his freedom-then shall be the breaking of the fullness of our day. These words from the immortal pen of the late Henry 'W. Grady, written more than forty years ago; true then, truer now, I shall make my text today and shall endeavor to briefly outline how conditions pictured by Mr Grady can be brought about in Pontotoc County and Southeastern Oklahoma. In this connection, I offer a form of livestock partnership and lease, copy of which can be obtained at the Chairman's table by anyone, interested (it is tot long to read in the time allowed me) which contains full details of my plan of better farming methods and livestock partnership, and has been in operation on some of my farms for a good many years. One instance is worthy of mention, of a tenant who began in 1925 encumbered with an old "corn and cotton" debt of about $1000, made a complete cotton failure in 1927, yet sold out his interest in 1928, paid his debts in full and had money left. Another began in 1923 $1200 in debt, 'has pand in full with interest, bought and paid for 120 acres of good land and has money in the bank. These instances can be multiplied. Those working under ihis plan have in almost every instance been able to live well without going in debt for living expenses. Last year I reported fifteen tenants partners. This year we have eighteen. Most of them are here and will ten you about their work. As stated last year, the plan set forth -in th6 contract is a beginning only and should finally result in the o'wnership of the entire property In-deluding the land, by the tenant. I now make this- definite and firm offer: When my tenant partner has paid for his one-half interest in the property included in our partnership, I will sell him the other half interest on the same terms, that is to say in installments of the proceeds dervived from operations, charging his 6 percent interest on the deferred second half interest, I will Bell him the farm at a reasonable price, and on the same terms," that is to say, payable out of the proceeds' of his operations, interest at 6 percent amount or annual payments to be mutually agreed upon, v When for any. reason the above live-stack partnership and farming contract on.a' fifty-fifty basis >�-not mutually (Continuetd on >Mt page) The Wednesday morning dail newspapers carried a story to the effect that Stilwell had been chosen the convention city for the National meeting of the Anti-Thief Association in 1930 by the convention which is in session in Arkansas City, Kansas, this week- Bill Barker was re-ciected vice- presi cdnt of the national organization, according to the story. Barker and Joe M. Lynch left here Sunday to attend the meeting and returned Wednesday night. C. L. Gray of Carterville, Mo., was re-elected president of the Anti-Thief Association. Resolutions were passed recommend, ing a more rigid enforcement -of the 18th amendment and requestingmem-bers in the several states to encourage their Senators and congressmen in passage of law prohibiting inter-marriage of whites and negroes, under penalty of a 20-year prison sentence. ..

FARMERS GETTING $2,000 A MONTH FOR WHOLE MILK SEQUOYAH COUNTY AGENT IS JUDGE HERE LAST WEEK Fred Ingram is High in Praise ot Exhibits on Display at Fair Here ASK COMMISSIONERS TO RECOVER MONEY ILLEGALLY PAID OUT DABNEY RESIGNS, J. BERRY KING 13 AWARDED PLACE Berry King is Named As New Attorney General to Fill Unex----- Pired Term Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Sept. 23. Edwin Darby, attorney general, resigned late Monday to enter the private pratice of law, and was succeeded by J. Berry King, his first assistant. The change came quickly, Governor W. J. Holloway accepting Dabney's resignation as soon as it was tendered, and immediately appointing King. In quitting his post, Dabney, who recently had said he intended' to run for re-election, sent a wave of surprise through the capital apparently riot shared in the governor's office, and on every hand was heard speculation as to whether the move indicated that King would be advanced as administration canidate for the position in next year's election. In his resignation Dabney stated further honor could not be given him in the office, and he bestowed upon him by the-people. "I have done my best to merit the commission the people gave me, but as you know, the salary is small as compared with the present day living, and I find' that I can earn considerably more in private practice than the present salary of the office affords," he said in the resignation. "My interest is to make good in the present job," King commented apout the appointment. "I deeply appreciate the honor. "I expect to go on as we have been in the office. The old ship has been going good. She is above water and I intend to keep paddling.'1' King said/he did not contemplate any changes in the personnel of the office, but expected all to remain. He Baid, however, that he would name one assistant as there will be one assistant less due to his elevation. W. L. Murphy assistant, is due to become his first assistant, it was understood. "I regret very much to see General Dabney resign," Governor Holloway declared in accepting the resignation.' "In my judgment he has made an excellent record and rendered splendid service. No man in the captiol has cooperated more fully with the governor's office than he was. i "I relixe that his reasons given here are very pointed. I accept his resignation at ((his time, effective Immediately Fred-Ingram, county agent was ui Stilwell Thursday where he acted as one of the judges of farm products and live stock on display at the annual Adair County Free Fair. The Adair county fair opened Wednesday and will continue the balance of the week. Mr. Ingram was accompanied to Stilwell by the county 4-H Club livestock and poultry team who will compete at the annual Oklahoma Free State at Muskogee the latter part ot this month. The team went with Ingram in order to gain more experience in their judging work and prepare for the big event in judging among Qkla-hoina 4-H~Club members at-� 'Muskogee. The 4-H club members who. accompanied Mr. Ingram to Stilwell were: Virgil Reeder of Sallisaw, Buddy Humphey -of Atkins and Albert Hastings of Gans. These boys have splendid 4-H Club recordB, having completed the year work in good shape. While at Stilwell the boys judged livestock and poultry. "The Adair County fair was one ot the best county fairs that I have had the pleasure to visit," Ingra msaid last night, 'the people of Sequoyah county by all means should re-establish their fair next year." Ingram was highly elated over the showing of the 4-H club team at Stilwell and predicted that they would be contenders for state honors at Muskogee. -Sallisaw Democrat. Practically Every Patron of Cheese Factory Pleased With Results Recived The first payroll of the cheese factory to the farmers of the county was almost $500.00 for 7 days milk supply, according to E. W. Gann, manager. This will make an average payroll of $2,000 per month with the present amount of milk.received by the plant. Practically every- farmer who soW his milk to the plant was well satisfied with the returns, Mr. Gann sattf. Only one or two people complained about the returns and part of the reason for their complaint was the way tile milk was taken care of, he Bald. Frank Strauss, who is the outstanding dairyman of the county, was wen pleased with the results. He keeps very close account of the cost of production and the returns and expresses himself as favorable to the returns from selling the whole milk to the cheese factory. The plant is also buying cream and were paying the first of the week 45c with no testing charge. The local price was ,39c with a 31c testing charge per can before the cheese plant begun operations. vQne local station has raised "Hie, price to 50c but Mr. Garth says he cannot engage in a price war even, though it may cut down his milk supply,. He-states that he simply intends to. eiajt with the market regardless of what happens. ICE PLANT ROBBED Thieves who evidently knew what they were looking for broke into the Ice plant Sunday night and took $71.12 in cash. A bolt cutter was evidently used to sever the latches that held the locks on both the outer door and the drawer of the desk where the money was kept. "Someone must have seen me check up either on that night or some previous time and knew where the money was kept," said Daune Sorrels, manager. Nothing' else was disturbed in the building and no clues have been found. ---'� - ECURSION TO KANSAS CITY The Kansas City Southern Railway announces in this week's issue of the Democrat an excursion to Kansas City on October 4 and 5 in celebration of the Little World's Series, which will be played by the Kansas City Blues and the Rochester Red Wings. ---- MRS.

The petition also asked that the| commissioners take "immediate legal! action to recover for Ballard township' any and all sums paid out from the; township funds by the order of the county Commissioners." 1 The taxpayers from Ballard town-j ship who filed the demand through' Attorney Kelley Brown of Muskogee allege that during the time that the. first law abolishing township governments was being tested in the Supreme, court, the County Commissioners used the Ballard township road funds at other points in the .county.
