PAGE SIX DISPATCH DEMOCRAT, UKIAH, CALIFORNIA FRIDAY, JULY 2, 1948 Davis Is Chairman Lions District Board > • W. K. Davis, proprietor of the Davis Shoe Store, who was elected governor of Distnct 4-B, Lions International, at the convention at Hoberg's on May 9, was installed June 24 at the Long Beach convention, and at the meeting of the directors of District 4 was-^— ^ ^— elected chairman of the board, nn 11 T T' 1 This signal honor to Mr. ,1 WO W eeKeilCl Davis comes as a surprise to TT-T his fellow-townsmen, since there ( O YVTt AG l~l AT*A had been no advance indication xX<*ili.CO X J-Cl ^ that the honor was In store for him, and comes also as a source of deep satisfaction to his many friends. District 4 includes Lions clubs of California and Nevada with their 430 chartered clubs of 24;000 members. Th6 directors meet , monthly. Mr. Davis' term of office is for one year. . Next month Mr. Davis will go td New York City for the 4-day convention of Lions International and on the 26th will receive final directions, and instructions. As governor of District 4-B and chairman of the board of directors for two states, Mr. Davis has a busy year to loolc forward to. Of his own district, it is the largest in Lions International, stretching from south of Carmel and including such towns as Gonzales, San Jose, Sunnyside, East Oakland, Berkeley, Antioch, Richmond, Martinez, etc., and all the Redwood Empire to Crescent City. The district has 99 clubs of 5400 members. The first duty of the ne\/ governor will be the appointment of seven deputy district governors and 18 zone chairmen for District 4-B. The Long Beach convention, says Mr. Davis was one of the best ever attended, with the extensive program efficiently handled and so synchronized that the business moved always forward, smoothly and without friction. Two highlights of the meeting were addresses by Fx-ed W. Smith,' International president, recently back from Europe where he opened three new countries to Lions organization, and by Dr. Sloboj, who. came to this country as ambassador from Czechoslovakia and lost his portfolio when the Russians moved into his country. He gave details of the Russian "invasion" and said his people are living in hope of escaping the Russian yoke and eventually establishing an independent democracy. He was a very able speaker, a man of many years' experience as a government official with a thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of European politics. • Winners In'The Bicycle Foraide Saturday Ukiah Merchants have arranged game for Saturday afternoon,; July 3, with the Vallejo Builders-. Club bail te;im to be played at the South State street park, beginning at 3 o'clock. The Builders \von 15 straight games before losing to the Harlem Globe Trotters, and have with them such players as Bill Watson, pitcher, who played with San Antonio in the Texas League and With the St. Louis Browns; Bob Merrell, who played for St. Mary's and .also played pro baseball; Marve Christensen, who was s star Vallejo .high school player this year, and many other equally- notable local players. The Merchants have hit their stride and will attempt to add the Builders to their string of victories. In their Sunday win over the Fort Bragg Loggers the locals displayed the power in hits and home runs which should spell defeat for any visiting team. There will also be a game Sunday, July 4, with the Holly Packers, the team that beat the Merchants in their first game of the season, by a score of 3-0. H. & P. Fireballs Edge P.S.E.A., 54 Child Killed In Accident Naomi Gillespia, four years of age, was accidentally shot through the head Sunday afternoon and instantly killed when her father's 30-30 rifle in the hands of her brother Clyde, 11, was discharged in the Gillespia home on the south fork of Pudding creek. Deputy Sheriff Ward Ries of Fort Bragg took charge of the investigation for the coroner's office, and Chief Deputy William White was sent over from UkiaTi for photographs of the scene. • An incoherent story was gathered from the boy, that his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Gillespia, and an older daughter had gone to Fort Bragg and as was customary, left the two younger children alone in the home. The boy said he saw a pigeon in a tree in their back yard and took his father's rifle to shoot it. When the bird flew away he returned to the house. It is presumed that having cocked the rifle, the boy forgot to let the hammer down and thoughtlessly pulled the trigger. His sister Naomi was standing on the back porch of the home and was shot through the back of her head, the heavy charge from the deer riCie tearing away the most of her skull. Suffering greatly from shock, the boy was unable to remember how he came to discharge the gun, but presumably it was discharged in his hands, as it is believed he would have remembered dropping it. The Gillespia home is about five rnilcs northeast of Fort Bragg. Firestone Fireballers edged their way to a 5-4 win over P.S.E.A. in a bang-up game last night which put the A league in a four-way tie for first place. Playing close ball from the start, the two teams were tied up at 1-1 at the end of the third. Hull & Poma's Fireballers pulled away in the fourth to lead 3-1, only to see their lead ruined by a homer banged in by Bishop of P.S.E.A. It was this beautiful wallop that tied up the game again, this time at 3-3. In the sixth it was even again at 4-4. Seventh and eighth innings saw no runs, as both crews tightened down. Two innings overtime, in the crucial ninth, came the winning tally by "Speed" Emery, who scored from third on an infield out. Fine pitching was exhibited all through the game by King of P.S.E.A. and Rogers of Hull & Poma.

Gibson each bringing in 3- point leads to give Ukiah a 6-point margin, 37V6 to 31V6.

Where does the money come from? 1. Making the telephone syitam grow takes money aiad lots of it...we're spending an^ average of half a million doHara every day for new facilities in the Pacific West. Some might think all this money comes from telephona bills...or from profits. But that's not the case in this business. W. K. DAVIS, Ukiah shoe merchant, who was recently elected governor of District 4-B, was installed on June 24 at the Long Beach convention and elected chairman of the board of gnvnTnnrK tnr District 4, clubs of California and Nevada. and so are Greyhound fares Wherever you go, you "score" low in cost, high in comfort, convenience and pleasure... by Greyhound!

For we must get money to grow from-investors who put their savings into the business. The bills you pay go for payroll, taxes and other operating costs — and for small "wages" for the money of investors. 4, Getting telephones to people who are waiting is our big job. And we can attract Dew working dollars and keep up the installiition pace only if we sell our services at sjlequate prices. These prices must cover operating costs and leave a moderate profit, too...the profit that pays our investors for the use of their sr .vings. 3. Somebody must put up a lot more money for each new telephone we add today than was necessaty before the war. Costs have gone up for us as they have for you. As we put in more.and more new telephones, the expensive tiew portion becomes a larger part of the whole system. .
