SCHOOL BOOHS AS
Sfc,wiTOR WYNNE FEARS THEY
WOULD 8PREAD CONTAG*
Oklahoma City, Okla.-, Jan. 9.—In
spite of the strong fight that is being
made this year for a free text book
bill, and the many argiuj**^"
vanced for it, ti**
have some trov
the senate commit, wjcatioo,
Senator R. P. Wlynne Lexington,
who has been at the head of that
committee ever since statehood, con-
siders that there are two insuperable
obstacles to any measure of the sort
which has been advanced so far.
"My first objection," said Senator
Wynne is that it is in direct oppo-
sition to the movement which has
ga'ned such great headway of late
toward the i reservation of the pub-
lic health by discouraging the pro-
miscuous use of articles which are
likely to spread contagion. We now
have the individual drinking cup and
the prohibition of common towels Is
likely to come next.
"The handing on of school books
from one child to another would !n
my opinion be a most fruitful source
for the spread of contagion. The
child will always take hold of the
book at just about the same place,
and as most oi them are printed on
rather soft paper It wil absorb the
germs like a sponge and hold them
there for the next user of the book.
"The next idea that appeals to me
is that the general training a child
receives in school is of more im
portance than what he learns from
books, and one of the strongest les-
sons along that line should be in
regard to the care and preservation
of Individual property. The greatest
part of that would be destroyed If
the child had no sense of owner-
ship in the books which he used an1
no interest in their preservation.
"The adoption of such a plan
would probably result In a saving
of money but it would take a great
many dollars to outweigh these two
considerations in my mind."
The free text book idea is one
of the propositions whioh Is given a
prominent place in the legislative
program of the state federation of
labor and has also been recommcnd
ed by State Superintendent E. D.
Cameron in his annual report to
the legislature. A bill embodying
that idea has already been Intro-
duced In the house by Representa-
tive J. Roy Williams of Comanche

MAYOR VETOES THE
HAT PIN ORDINANCE
Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 9.—Mayor
Darius A. Brown today vetoed the
ordinance recently passed by the
city council making it a misdemeanor
for women to wear unprotected hat
pins. These are the reasons he gave
for his action.
The law could not be enforced.
The ordinance is too trivial for
the city council to take cognizance
If hatpins really are a menace to
citizens' the wearers of them would
have sense enough to see that the
points were protected.
Both houses of the council voted
almost unanimously In favor of the
ordinance when It was put to a vote
two weeks ago.
THE CORPORATION COMMISSION
SEEKS ENLARGED JURIS-
Oklahoma City, Jan. 9—In its an-

policy of railroads operating through
the state has had effect of retarding
The commission says that its policy
during the next year will be to press
the matter of investigation and regu-
lation with such degree of rapidity
as is consistent with safe, reliable
The commission suggests that a law
be enacted making it a felony for
newspapers to publish anything writ-
ten and paid for directly or indirect-
ly by any railroad or public utility
owner without first stating that it Is
a paid advertisement, and by whom
the price is paid. Tt wants jurisdic-
tion to limit the amount of stocks
and bonds to be issued on railroad
an<T"other public service property and
power to enforce by order any public
duty imposed upoji railroad compa-
nies by statutory or common law.
Since the jurisdiction of the com-
mission has been questioned by cer-
tain public utility owners, such as
gas, electric light and waterworks
companies ,the commission asks that
its power In this respect be definitely
fixed. It also suggests that a law
be enacted giving the commission
jurisdiction of ice plants.
