PAGE SIX DISPATCH DEMOCRAT. UKIAH, CALP'ORNIA SPECTACULAR GAME . Broadway Clowns Take Game from Eagles Quint Bill Williams' Eagle basketeers bowed majestically to the barnstorming Broadway Clowns, America's funniest basketball team, 41-to-37, Tuesday night in the high school gym. Playing to one of the largest crowds ever to assemble in the local pavilion, the colored ouintct put on an exhibition of high class basketball which the fans greatly enjoyed. Hard pressed by the fiKhtinj; Kagles in the first half, the Clowns wore unable to delve deep In their bfi(; of tricks until midway In the third quarter when "Runt" Pulllns started the fireworks with a spectacular dash around left end from a short punt formation. With the Solnila brothers hitting the hoop with their usual consis- taiicy to account for all but four of the Eagles' 37 points, the locals looked good enough to claim the county cage crown again this year. "Monk" Moyers, a surprise addition to the Eagles lineup, turned in an outstanding performance. Moyers, a member of the Santa Clara high school cage squad this year and a forward with Redwood Valley last season, did much to bolster the locals attack. Potter Valley dropped a hard- fought contest to the Ukiah Ramblers in the preliminary. Following is the box score for the Eagle tilt: Eagles (37) V. Soinlla (16) .... f Venturl t O. Soinlla (17) .... o Kord (2) g Rawles (2) K Substitutions: Clowns (41) ... (6) Pulllns (2) Boyd (9) Coins ... (3) Mathews ... (21) Bryant Eagles — Moyers, Hengnveld, Walnio, Van Horn.

Lindbergh home ill 810 West Clay street is one of the most artinlically decorated honirs. By floodlighting a living tree, which is iced with silvei- tinsel, they tiave obtained a picture of real beauty. The snowed window tloodligiiled in blue complete.s a truly outstanding Chriatmaa arrangement. The window at the home of the l''red Sciiolls on Dorii street portrays an angel and a lighted star. This is a most unicjue display. Tlie doorway of the H. W. Brown home is draped with an ivy spray trimmed with gold bells. The nrciiway of ttio Lon Oii)son home is at tract IVPI.V lighted. Tlje general attractiveness of the Fred Leonard Iiome on Barnes street is increased by the use of floodlights and candle lighted windows and doorway. This home is well worth .seeing. The Ted Dowlen home on Clara avenue, with its brightly lighted trees, is one of the out.'itanding additions to the holiday decorations. The Mabel Hiisch home on Scott street employs two small living trees as its decorative motif. A doorway with lighted candles reflects the cheeriness of this home. The archway of the Stanley Watson home blends its bi'llliant colors with the holiday decorations. By the use of candles at the door- Way and window wreaths, the Stout home on Pine street has achieved a most pleasing effect. The R. O. LcBaron home at Mendocino State Hospital is a picture of loveliness. Indoor Tr«Mis The Indoor tree and home decorations of the V. J. Vieira home at Mill and McPeak are among the most beautiful in the city. The blue tree viewed in recess at the Paul Hansen home is lovely. The Earl Fullerton tree and doorway is most attractive . A few of the many homes worthy of mention are: Charles Shimmin, Harry Hildebrand, J. C. Poarce, Bert Mankins, E. H. Schamher, C. S. Myszka, A. A. Smith, Poulos Apartments. E. J. Chamberlin, W. H. Brunner. Harry Hughes. V. F. W. Auxiliary Gives Children Merry Xmas The children's Christmas party given Friday night in Memorial hall by the Post and Auxiliary of tho Veterans of Foreign Wars was a success in every particular and provided entertainment for children of the members and their friends. A pot-luck supper was served to the children and followed with ice cream, cookies and candies for the children and older folks. A Christmas tree added its influence to an otherwise full evening. Miss Norma Thurston, who was here from her school at Bakcrsfleld to spend tho holidays with her parents, organized the story-telling hour with such success and such an extensive repertoire that this feature of amusement for the younger group extended beyond its t^me limits. The older children passed their time playing cards, bingo and in dancing. The next regular meeting of the Auxiliary will be held this Thursday, at tho usual hour. Tennessee Picked to Beat Southern Cal in Rose Bowl Townsendites Gather At Christmas Party The Townsend Club Christmas party in the Steicrt hall lant Sat- ui'day night was attended by more than 200 persona. The program of ten features was well prepared and delightfully rendered, and consisted of songs, readings, dialogues, pantomimes, songs hy the children and a drill In which J2 girls took part. Tho program was followed b.v dancing until midnight. Those taking part in the drill were Chlorine Carlson, Dorothy Green, Clarabelie Guthrie, Ruth Wild, Irene Shupe, Jessie Parks, Fay Hull, Barbara Salisbury, Mil- flrn<l Sanderson, Lois and Leta Salisbury, Barbara Hoiliday. The participants were costumed in red and carried star-tipped scepters. Under the play of colored lights they formed a pretty sight. One vocal number featured Ruby Salisbury, Alice Parks, Ora Salis- bur.v and Erwina Bowen, aided by a chorus of ten voices. "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear was the pantomime given by Leta and Lois Salisbury. BT IRVING DIX 'pENNESSEE over Southern California in the Rose Bowl— Tulane over Texas A. & M. in the Sugar Bowl— Missouri over Georgia Tecli in the Orange Bowl— Clemson over Boston Collego in the Cotton Bowl— And there you have our selections (or the annual siege of New Year's Day "Bowl Battles" which mark the offlcial exodus of the 1939 football season. We probably are stringing along with the minority in picking Maj. Bob Neyland's. Tennessee team over the Trojans, but it's more than just a hunch on our part. Southern Cal showed it was extremely vulnerable by barely staving off defeat by U. C. L. A., and Notre Dame demonstrated that a smart, sharp- blocking team can score upon the Trojans. » • • fpENNESSEE has the sharpest attack in the south. George Cafego, whose knee is pretty well healed now; Johnny Butler, Bob Foxx and the other Vol backs had almost, perfect blocking ahead of them all year. And proof that the Tennessee line is a great all-round unit is the fact that not a single point was scored against the club this season. Odds favor Granny Lansdell, Bob Peoples, Harry Smith and the rest of those mighty men of Troy, but we've been overwhelmingly impressed by that Dixieland sharpness. The two most physically powerful teams in the country collide in New Orleans' Sugar Bowl. Both Texas A. & M. and Tulane have great forward walls, averaging over 200 pounds. Tlie Aggies went through undefeated, while the Green Wave played a 14-14 tie with a good North Carolina team for the only blotch on its escutcheon. • • • J ARRING John Kimbrough, the Texans' great fullback, isn't enough in this case, where the Green Wave has not only one, but two tremendous front lines. That strength up front should Last Member of 1st Ukiah Family Christmas Guest George Cafego . . .'hb re* turn glvei edge to Vols. be the difference between - the two teams. A stout Missouri team which lost only to Ohio State, appears to have too much in general, and Paul Christman in particular, for Georgia Tech te handle In Miami. The Engineers have a well-balanced club, but Pitching Paul has proved no respecter of balance. A great Clemson team has Banks McFadden, All-America triple-threat, which should be the best indication of what will be happening in Dallas. Both the southerners and Boston College lost one game apiece this year and if it weren't for McFadden the game would be an absolute tossup. j Holiday Dance To Be Gala Event Sluggers' Benefit Dance Bring:s In Cash One of the largest crowds assembled in tho ballroom of Mendocino State Hospital responded to tho announcement that the Talmage Sluggers would be hosts last Saturday night at a benefit dance. The dance proved a financial success and a most enjoyable holiday dance. The Californians added their part to the success of the dance. Plans are already being made for n second benefit dance for the night of January 20, PISPA1X;H CLASSIFIEDS PAY!

Early History Mrs. Nellie Thurston is tho last member of the family of Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Perkins, who came to Ukiah in 1857, and were the first white family to establish a home here and, in fact, were the founders of Ukiah. They came from Arkansas by the only practical means of travel over the mountains in that early day—with ox team. On arrival the only semblance of a building was the four walls of a cabin that had been abandoned when it reached that stage of construction, and although without roof, doors or windows, it afforded the Perkins family their first night's lodgin^TJ Blankets were draped over the openings as safeguard against the prying eyei of whatever night prowlers there were abroail? BctWeen Cloverdalo and Ukiah Mr. Perkins had killed a deer, which he brought with him to his new home and on this first night had left the carcass hanging outside the cabin walls. During the night two bears smelled out the fresh meat and arrived on the spot at about the same time and went into action, each to prove his priority. Inside the cabin walls the Perkins family were compelled to await the outcome of the argument, with nothing to prevent one or both the marauders from invading their refuge. Mr. Perkins' only firearm was a single shot, muzzle loading rifle. Ho evidently believed discretion the better part of valor and concluded to allow the prowlers to settle the matter of ownership of the venison without his help. With his rifle and Bowie knife ready, he waited in the darkness until the .sounds of • battle had subsided, which came only after the bears had dismembered the deer and each made off with what he had. Mrs. Nellie Thurston, who was about five years old at that time, remembers that night as atwut the most exciting of her long and eventful life. N^Mr. Perkins' homo and blacksmith shop later was established near where the Vonsen Feed Store now slants at Main and Perkins street^ Changes Announced In Local Trains Changes to be inaugurated January 1 in the train service of the Northwestern Paciflo affects trains leaving and arriving in Ukiah as follows: Train No. 2 will arrive in Ukiah at 11:49 a. m., ten minutes earlier than previously; Train No. 1 will leave Ukiah at 2:10 instead of 2:20 p. m., and Train No. 3 will leave Ukiah.30 minutes earlier, 4:10 a. m. instead of 4:30. 9 Mrs. Lorena Rains and her sons, Arnold and Bobby, of Ukiah, joined the Christmas party at the home of her daughter and son-in- law, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Aldrlch of Fort Bragg.

Sheriff's Office Has Clues Leading to The Guilty Party The sheriff's office la Investigating clues, several of which point rather definitely to the persons responsible for the poisoning of three valuable hunting dogs at Boonvilie early Wednesday morning. Two of tho poisoned animals were the property of H. J. Juno; the third belonged to Claud Presley. County Poundmastcr Homer Cake was called to Boonvilie Wednesday to investigate the poisoning and his Investigations not only found, strychnine in each of the dead animal's stomachs, but circumstantial evidence as to the source from which It came. The poison had been fed with fresh pork- According to Mr. Cake, the June and Presley dogs were always kept housed at night and Wednesday morning had been loosed only about 15 minutes when they were poisoned. Tiiey were released at atiout- 8:15 and IS minutes later wer« dead. There Is no reason to believe tho poisoning was the act of an angry sheep owner, since the dogs were carefully guarded and not allowed to range at night. Sheriff Williams is having made a complete search of all sales of strychnine, both in Mendoeino and Sonoma counties, where residents of Anderson Valley might be expected to make such purchases. This incident of ruthlessness has aroused intense indignation among residents of Boonvilie. Animal poisoning Is a high misdemeanor and punishable by a fine of $500 or six months' jail sentenc^ or both. In the event a human beV Ing should die by poison from such a source the crime would-be manslaughter. Covelo Stockraiser Buys 4-H Bull Billy Peters, Hopland 4-H boy, has sold his registered Hereford bull to Elmer Bowers of Covelo. Mr. Bowers purchased the animal with the idea of raising his own bulls for use in range breeding and this animal is described by Assistant Farm Advisor R. D. Foote as a particularly good buy.

Mr. Hildebrand was in Santa Rosa all last week on business and Mrs. Hildebrand joined him there Friday night. ,The Hildebrand home near the entrance of the municipal park is one of the attractive new residences of the city and it carried a particularly attractive Christmas door decoration.
