In fact, the racing stable has saved Ellsworth for many year, from bankruptcy in the cattle business because or the prolonged drought in Arizona. .

They had just re-entered the cattle business at Seligman about four or five years ago when a I new drought hit. They didn't have much' available cash to maintain their foundation herds after putting a down P*yn»ait Ion the ranch and restocking it, so.they applied, like everyone else in Arizona, for government aid to buy feed'. . . which led I to the. recent charges. , . ; I PART OF NATIONAL GOLF WEEK PGA., Open Champions to Play Special Match j if .'
