l'AGE TWO DISPATCH-DEMOCRAT, UKIAH, CAL., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1926 The Rambler When Grace Hudson, is gone and •the price of her paintings has soared to th<! skies, Ukiah will wake up and wish it owned one. Let Ukiah arrange to set a. Grace Hudson painting NOW and hang it In the public library. We have a multitude of organizations and I suggest that one of them undertaKc this pleasant and worth-while task. * * * * * Have you heard any objection to Hugh Preston continuing as judge of the superior court? Thore are three essentials to a judge—ability, integrity and industry. Judge Preston haii them all, and in addition, that saving grace, a sense of humor. * *i * * * Gel. up in the morning with a resolution (and keep it) to carry a emiie ail day and !<) spaak no word of gossip, Just, try it. for one day and determine for yourself whether the experiment is worth repeating. ***** A candidate's "friends" are always responsible for his sacrificial offer to serve the public. After election one wonders how it is that EO many candidates have so lew friends. * * * 't * When Judge McCamant was before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he testified that. h?. did not believe Hiram Johnson was a good Americ$it. There are many persona right here in California who will subscribe to that statement. ***** The Italian government has now Riven authority to deprive Italian citizens living abroad of their citi- -uenahip and to confiscate all property left behind if they "commit, acts injurious to Italian prestige." Mussolini is determined to restore the glory of Home. He will brook no criticism. Maybe he will succeed, but my guess is that H* will follow many other dictators—to an early grave. ***** Of Ihe niau) new governments set up since the war, Dr. Munro of Hur- vard says, "despite our monumental power and prosperity, despite our World leadership, despite our exalted opinion of ourselves politically, not one cf these countries has seen fit to adopt a single governmental device or method drawn from the practice of the United States.'' Perhaps one reason is that these new countries cannot afford such a government as we have. Our government costs j money, lots of money, too much money. We are at last, beginning to realize it ourselves. ***** Every few days I have to fight a thief, and each time the thief steals a part of one of my most, valuable possessions,- —my time. Kid you ever have a book agent, a life insurance agent, or one of the thousand other brands of agents, call on you? They are supposed to be high pressure salesmen and salesladies, H. 0, OiEUNO, M, D.

ML Our large volume of business allows us to give you the best of food at moderate prices Myers' LIBERTY CAFE Saturday Night All Night Service but to me they are plain time thieves. And if you ever let one get started, you will eventually capitulate or lose your temper. Another time thief is the beggar, not the poor devil who needs a meal, but these high class beggars, taking up a collection. They first want your time, then your money, and finally the use of your name to help them get the time and money of your neighbors. ***** Tho editor tells me that he has had considerable favorable comment, on this column, and no adverse criticism. That, in a large measure, is good news. Of course, sooner or later someone will, get a "grouse on." Rut it is not my intention or desire to irritate. I don't, want to be spineless, to be without opinions or be so lacking in character as to be afraid to rouse to great anger at injustice or wrong. Nor do I want to create the impression that r am satisfied with things as they are. At the same tinui I would like to live in my little house beside the road and be a friend to nil the world. ***** There are a number of men in the county jail, kept in idleness and supported by the county. The sheriff gets them to do work about the court house and grounds, but none of them do a real day's work. I think the legislature should empower the sheriff to put these men to work, good hard work for eight hours a day. If they have dependents, their earnings are necessary. Even without depedents, the county should not support them in idleness. There is a wide difference between a sentence of six months and six months at hard labor. ***** * The other day I heard a statement that the farmer is getting ample education on production, but too little on selling or marketing. It sounds reasonable. The farmer is or should be n business man. He has something to sell and should be trained so as to, be able to find the best market. A bumper crop sold at a small price is not a* Taluablo as an average crop sold for a good price. And, in my opinion, it is much easier for a farmer, under present conditions, to produce well than it is to market well. ***** If things are not being done, according to your ideas, or as you would do, don't balk,—don't go around town ranting and raving, don't accuse those who are trying to accomplish something of all the delinquencies that a human can possibly have. The longer I live, the more convinced 1 am that the other fellow is generally good at. heart, is doing the best he can and almost always has reasons for his opinion worthy of consideration. We should be tolerant of others, most especially of the opinions of others. GLOVERDALE FAIR TO OPEN EXHIBIT TODAY . tsz CLOVER DALE, Feb.- U.—When the doors are thrown open Friday, February 19 for Cloverdale's 2 8th Annual Citrus Fair, a scene ot dazzling splendor will present itself to the throngs of people in attendance. The interior of the big pavilion has been converted by use of palms and other vegetation into a fitting background for the many wonderful citrus exhibits. The famous glee club under management of "Brick" Morse has been engaged to furnish entertainment every afternoon and evening. This aggregation is composed of 20 of the best musicians at the University of California. Their program will include high class vaudeville acts, male quartette numbers, instrumental and vocal solos and other fine features too numerous to mention. On Saturday, in addition to the regular glee club program, there be a speech by Mayor James Rolph, Jr., of San Franciuco and a contest between the different scout troops of Sonoma county in fire making, first aid work, etc. A silver cup will be presented to the winning team. Scouts from surrounding counties are invited to attend and watch -the contest. All scouts will be admitted free on that day. Sunday's program, in addition to the - glee club, includes concerts by the Santa Rosa and Ukiah bands, a recital by the noted Maenner chorus of F'Ptalnma. and it drill by the I. O. O. F. Cuntou drill team of Santa Rosa. There will be dancing every afternoon and r-vening (except Sunday) and there will not be a dull moment during the fair. The citrus exhibits themselves are wortk going many miles to see. Artistic and gorgeous, they form a panorama of dazzling beauty that lingers long in the memory. The championship dreams that have filled the atmosphere around the local high school of late were rudely shattered and trampled into the depths of oblivion Wednesday night when thrf Willits Wolves swarmed down from their lair to crush Coach Sand rock's Wildcat casaba-tossers by a 21 to 17 count. The Wildcats, who, a month ago, upset all existing traditions, since the memory ot man runneth not to the contrary, by handing the Wolves a 22 to 20 lemon on the latter's court, were very tame Wildcats indeed for the return bout. Not one of Sandrock's Terrors played up to his usual form. Doak, the infallible basket-shooter of the gang, got but two or three chances and fallen to convert them. Daubeneck fumbled repeatedly and pussed to every person in the stands. Weselsky showed up splendidly in the first half but was a poor ornament in the last two periods. Brown was terribly slow getting into the plays. Mlnetti and Leno, alternating at standing guara, broke up many plays very well but were frequently drawn too far out. It was just a bum night for the whole bunch. They all did their derndest, such as it was, but. it wasn't enough. Their shortcomings brought their brand of playing down to the level of the northern team's ability. The result of this equalization was a peach of a game from tne spectators' standpoint, for neither team gained a decisive lead at any stage. At the end of the first quarter the score was tied—7. up. At halftime Willits led 12 to 11 and at the end of the third quarter they were still in front, 18 to 15. The crowd was on its feet most of the time and went wild in the last, period. There was more noise than a man- sized Cyaek revolution could deliver. / ;The silver linings to the local cloud were the victories of Coacn Rutherford's Bearcats and the 130- pound Bobcats over the Willits girls' and lightweight boy^', teams, respectively. The feminine exponents of the casaba-flinging pastime put up a hot scrap from sttyj to finish. The Ukiah girls were too much for the visitors <o handle, however, and pulled out with a 27 to 19 decision. Gladys Staley was the sensation of the game. Besides scoring 18 points, her speed and accurate passing were important factors in the local win. Theresa Balzarini, substitute forwards-played a remarkable game in the two periods she was in. She accounted for 8 points. Lois Lawrence tallied the other three markers. For the visitors, Hall was the mainstay. She scored 16 points for the cause. Virginia Herron and Anna Miller played a whirlwind game at guard for the Bearcats, and Viola Half was also very effective. Vivien Giles and Martha Mannon worked well together in the center section. In the other preliminary, the Bobcats r: n circles around their opponents and won handily, 17 to 11. It's a sight for sore eyes to watch the Bobcats play. They work together like yeast and a raisin in moonshine mash. They handle the ball beautH fully and a little improvement in basket-shooting would make them championship material anywhere. As it is, there's nothing in this section to touch them. The combination of Anker, C. Vassar, Scholl, L. Vassar and Gibson makes a regular machine that is as consistent as clockwork. You can't pick a star because the loss of any one of the five is felt by the remaining four. Summary of the unlimited game: UKIAH t'S ft pts pf wise brilliant 'Bcutcheon of Sandrock's Terrors, but last Friday evening they erased the smudge and polished up the old reputation by clawing the Lake county champions fore, aft, and amidships for a 23 to 12 decision. In no doing, the Wildcats demonstrated just how they should have performed the previous Wednesday, at which time they apparently suffered from a combined attack of astigmatism, house-maid's knee, and general debility. Friday's 23 to 12 score indicates fairly accurately the relative abilities of the two teams under normal conditions. By that I don't mean to belittle the Kelseyviile casaba-tossers. The Bears are an aggregation of game, 'fast, scientific, and \vel!-coached players and, but for the fact that they have no indoor court on which to practise, they would undoubtedly be serious contenders for the championship of this section. Friday night's affair was the first step towards untangling the triple tie existing in this section, with Ukiah, Kelseyviile, and Willits as the tie-ees. Thus, the first quintet to be eliminated would, perforce, be "caput mortuum," "in articulo mortis," "hors de combat," or in simpler language, outa luck. Consequently, the Bears and the Wildcats put on quite some little scrap. The first half was a nip and tuck proposition, with Kelseyviile at the peak of her form but with Ukiah sort of feeling out the situation. The Wildcats led at the quarter, 6 to 5 and at halftime, 11 to 10. The second half found the local boys settled down to business, however, and the force of their rush put the skids on the visitors. Coach Sandrock's charges continued their rather mediocre basket-shooting but. their five-man defense worked like a stone wall. Crowell, the Bear's main threat, was completely smothered and the champS of tule land scored but two points in the last half. The reversal of conditions made nervous wrecks of them and they blew what few open shots they had. Meanwhile, the Wildcats scored 12 more counters to sew the game up. No particular man was the individual star for Ukiah. Teamwork was the rule rather than the exception. The shifts from offense to defense and vice versa were fast and smooth, especially in the last two periods. Crowell and Tflllman were the mainstays of Kelseyviile on both offense and defense. By concentrating on these two men, Ukiah found that she could have things just about her own way.

Similarly, they swish a wicked net— loop a gosh-awful bucket, as it were. Of course, like all top- notchers and potential champions they have their off-nights occasionally. As, f'rinstance, tho "pwupkin- flopplu' " duel of Wednesday, February 10, wherein the Kelseyviile Bears hung up an unexpected 2 2 to 20 win over the local eagere.

In the preliminary attraction, the 130-pound Bobcats again walked away from the heavier Kelseyviile second train, by a 24 to 11 count. Scholl and L. Vassar on offense and Gibson on defense were the outstanding performers. HOPLAND BREAKS EVEN HOPLAND, Feb. 15.-—The Willits unlimited basketeers journeyed to Hopland last Wednesday to tackle the Hopland unlimited. The game was very rough on both sides. The score at the end of the game was 11 to 16 in favor of Hopland. The second game of the week was Played at Boonville Friday night. Hopland was leading throughout tho evening with two-point margin, but in the last few minutes of play Boonville scored two field goals and a. free throw, winning by a 8«ore of 23 to IS. The game was the best yet played by the Hopland team. There was no rough tactics or hard feelings. The Hopland unlimited will play their sixth league game at Hopland Friday night. T1n>ir opponents will be Geyserville. Hopland as yet is still in the load in the league games. M. H.
