Pun had by Pfempa Dally NEWS carrier boys on the trip they won through New Mexico by getting new subscriptions is described by Basil Stalcup, winner of first prize in the essay writing contest sponsored by the NEWS and Cal Farley Tire shop. The story follows: BY BASIL STALCUP, Carrier for The NEWS. The Pampa Dally NEWS has been offering trips of from three to five days for the last three years. The last one was five days long. Carl Baer drove the truck loaded with bedding, tent, food, and cooking utensils to the camping ground Friday, August 16. . His wife, Mr. and Mrs. Gilmore N. Nunn, and the cook went to the site at the same time. The following morning, all four cars were filled with Aromax gasoline and Tagolene motor oil, which was furnished by the P.-K. One Stop Station. Paul Kaslshke, owner of the station, helped the paper carriers much by furnishing the gasoline and oil for the trip. A reward of $5 was put up by Cal Farley's Tire shop and The NEWS for the best story of the trip written by a carrier, with second prize of $4 and third prize of $2.50. The group that made the trip included Tommle Solomon, Ralph Walker, W.'C. Stalcup, Basil Stalcup, John Pitman, Adolph Duckworth, J. C. Dollard, Carl Hendren of Kellerville, Lloyd Erwln of McLean, Troy Lee Carver of Wheeler, unior Dart of New Mobeetie, Junior Hosklns of Miami, and Red Boland Shamrock. Others who went long were Mr. and Mrs. L. O. ohnson and daughter, Barbara, Mr. nd Mrs. Francis Green, Jimmie Green, and the group which left ie first day. We stopped in Amarillo a short me, but no other stops were made intil we arrived at Tucumcari rtiere we re-fueled and had lunch Lt the Waffle House cafe, each jerson was allowed to take his hoice of eats from a menu. Pie la mode was 20 cents per cut, but ve had the privilege of ordering his and anything else desired. By 12:30 p. m. Mountain time, we were through eating and ready to make many pleasant miles. One point of Interest on the way to amp was a lake near Santa Rosa Stones that were cast Into the far ide of it could be seen sinking down into the clear water. until it ooked as if the stone was suckec jy an undercurrent below the sur- ace on which we were standing. We stopped at a little filling sta- ion in Santa Rosa where all the :hildren filled up on candy and pop Bad road marked the 'scene o. action between Santa Rosa anc Romeroville. It was quite- slick ust before we reached the pave- nent at the latter. A drizzling ran continued unti we got almost to Holy Ghost can- 'on, the place where we were going to camp, but the sun came out on us once more and we could see largi line trees towering 75 feet in thi lir. On the mountain sides were mndreds of beautiful yellow flowers while clear cold water rushed ove the rocky bottom of the Pecos river AU along the road for about 11 mile !rom the place we were going ti stay in Holy Ghost canyon, a cable went south pulling buckets which carried 1,000 pounds of ore con :ainlng minerals, and one goin north carrying empty buckets, Dusky darkness overtook us be fore we finally reached our destina ;ion; however, the tent was up ani supper was cooked, and we wer soon in bed for a good night's sleep Talk ran high among the boys fo at least 30 minutes before the quieted down, As soon as breakfast was com pleted Sunday morning, the one that didn't need to help the coo' spent their time In target practice Every boy in the group shot at target, but not every, one shot high score. Many showed lack o skill with a gun. The sun came out hot later i: the morning, but this didn't sto us from playing a fast game of in door baseball. Mr. Nunn was pitche for the side I played on, and Mr Johnson, circulation manager, fo the other side. After we had severa close innings, we beat Mr. John son's team by an 11 to 10 score. Swimming also was on the Sun day morning program. Several the group went to the mountai home of the Nunns, where the wate Seven-Year^Old Girl Succumbs Annie Madllne Porterfleld, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Jack Fc-rterheld pf Whlttenberg, form erjy of Pampa, died yesterday .morn Ing in a' Whlttenberg hospital fol lowing an. operation. The family ha< resided in Pampa, nearly five year before moving to Whittenberg }as Survivors are the parents brother, L. p, Porterfleld. Fnerel SWvtees were to be con . .at 3:99 O'clock this after JR aif ifeReJ oi Pampa Mpr hour befpre breakfast fixing ' ' i .and washing- their lace? ALINDAB was icy cold, and took a plunge As a result, these were late to mea and were punished by having help the cook. Another boy and I dug worms fo an hour so we could go fishing, bu a group was going mountain climb ing and we decided to go with them For an hour and, 25 minutes w climbed until we could no longe hear the roar of the Holy Ghos river that ran behind the sleeping tent. Suddenly one boy got very anxious to go back to camp. He thought he had heard a growl of some kind. Anyway, all of us were tired, so we turned back. Mr, Johnson told my father and I that, if we would cut some pine branches and lie them on the ground before placing our bedding down, we would sleep warmer and more comfortably. This we did and found it worth our time. Several of the group went back up the canyon and to Mr, Nuun's ranch. Part went canoeing while my father and I fished; however, we didn't catch anything. A fish (jidn't even so much as nibble my hook. We -blame^ our luck on weather conditions, > Practically evgryoRe had participated in -movritain climbing during the W- C9fl8Wn>»$y, we were dble to have complete qylefc early nJeht- ' anta Fe visiting points of interest. The Palace of the Governors con- ained several things of interest. I njoyed seeing the spurs and bridle- ts used by early Spaniards and d stage drivers. In one room was n old plow and a large pot; in nother the chief Interest to me was i old-fashioned bicycle. In an- iher, pictures of the governors of ew Mexico were hanging along the all. Immediately after lunch, we were oined by Mr. Nunn, general mana- er of The NEWS, and we went to he capltol. There we had the rlvilege of meeting Governor Clyde ingley and listening to him talk, •le showed us the new road map e was having put out to spread ver New Mexico. Across the street from the capitol a large home where the governor ves. The rooms are filled with uxurious furniture and beautiful ictures hang on the walls, the next point of interest was he state penitentiary. We were down through the kitchen, where normous pots and cookers were sed to fix meals for the prisoners, lie kitchen was kept clean and the ookers and pots were new. The men hnd their own library, barber hop, laundry, and a place to make ricks. They also hnd a department that made auto license plates and another where they sold souve- irs. We visited the native shop In lanta Fe where they made many ouvenirs and after shopping around ver town a while, we returned to amp. To let everyone be satisfied, At. Johnson let the boys vote on a rip through the mine and to other places of interest or go to the 'uye' ruins. Two cars went on each rip. I voted for the trip to the mine. The mine was a short distance rom where we were staying. The rocess of separating the ore from he minerals was explained. After aklng It out of the ground, It is rushed two times, put In buckets, and carried over the long tram-way or 17 miles. It is then crushed again and floated. During the irocess of floating, the minerals are eparated from the rock. That trip vas short; consequently, we decided o go to Santa Fe. We got there n plenty of time to eat our lunches. After eating, we drove about over he city. As we went out on the road from anta Fe to Pecos, we saw a sign pointing to the left which read: 1% miles to Seton village." The 'lllage was composed of several epees made on the Indian design Mr. Seton is interested in educating the American people as to mora" characteristics, methods of living and peculiarities of the Indians At an old well which is also between Santa Fe and Pecos, I fed he bears candy while another boy took a picture of them while they ivere standing on their rear legs. Visiting the fish hatchery was quite interesting to me. It was .ocated by the Pecos river between Pecos and the camp. Outside the building in large cement troughs the larger fish were kept. On the Inside one could see the baby fisl just as 'they had hatched. While yet in this place, the keeper fed th fish. It was interesting to watch the fish scramble for the food. The lake at Mr. Nunn's place was an attraction to me once more Three pairs of us fellows glided ove the lake in a beautiful canoe called 'Blue Streak." On realizing that i was nearly time for supper, we jour neyed back to camp. I went to bed that night abou 10:30 o'clock and was awake earlj Wednesday morning. After break fast, we struck the big tent an. loaded it on the truck. Then w loaded the cooking vessels and bed ding. Just before we left, Mr. Johnson Mr. Nunn, and Mr. Baer snappec group pictures of us standing in front of the cars. It was after 1 a. m. before we reached Pecos which was 17 miles from our camp ground. The roads were awfull dusty between Romeroville and San ta Rosa, but, while eating du lunches, we were back at the beauti ful blue lake this side of the latte town. Although we stopped onl three times after eating luncheon, i was 9 o'clock or after before par of the cars pulled_back Into Pampa GARDNER TO RESIGN CLARKSDALE, Miss., Sept. 16 (#>)—J.

NEWS Want Ads are effective. 'TarBaby' Seesi Louis as Victor POMPTON LAkEfl, tf. J., Sept. 16. (/p)_joe Louis' stack had taken another rise today. He pummeled his Sparrlhg partners yesterday as some wise old eyes looked on and they proclaimed him a great heavyweight. One of the on lookers was Sam Langford, the grizzled Old "Tar Baby" of better days. Sam can't see so well. One eye was permanently dimmed by a right hand punch of Fred Pulton and the other Isn't so clear. But he saw enough of the panther-like bomber who keeps weaving in, to convince him that his race had produced another great one. "He's just too much for Mr. Baer," said Langford. Philadelphia Jack O'Brien was there Loo but although he praised Louis he withheld a prediction as to the outcome of the Sept. 24 battle until he had seen Baer train.
