STATE MEDICAL EXAMINERS
HOLD QUARTERLY MEETING
Next Meeting Will Be Held in July—
The Springer Case Was
After a stiff three-cornered contest
In which Oklahoma City, Guthrie and
McAlester were the opponents, the
state board of medical examiners, in
quarterly session at the Lee-Huckins
hotel, in Oklahoma City, decided to
bold its next meeting in the same city,
the dates being July 9, 10 and 11. It
was on account of its central location,
more than anything else, that Okla-
homa City was chosen.
The fifteen applicants for license to
practice in Oklahoma finished their
examinations and turned the papers
over to the members of the board It
was thought that the grading of the
papers will be finished and the results
announced within ten days. Three doc-
tors, two from West Virginia and one
from Tennessee, were given permits
to practice medicine in the state with-
out being examined, they having pass-
ed, with good grades, similar examina-
tions in their own states. A state law
provides that a person desfring to prac-
tice in Oklahoma must pass the exami-
nation given by the board of examin-
ers with an average of 70 and must
not fair below 50 in any one branch.
A charge that has been hanging over
T>r. O. E. Springer of Washington,
Okla., for more than one year, alleg
ing that his license to practice in^the
state had been secured by using fraud,
was dismissed by the board, the ac-
cused doctor introducing irrefutable
evidence to the contrary. The charge
against Dr. Springer was brought by
another doctor of Washington.

Governor Issues Temporary Parole.
A temporary parole to October 1 was
granted by Governor Cruce to Charles
W. Oliver, of Seminole county, convict-
ed of violating the prohibitory law, J
who was fined $250 and sentenced to
serve fxty days in the county jail. The
parole was granted to allow him to

AKIN BILL IS FLED
WTH 20,971 SIGNATURES
Measure Providing Elimination of 14
Schools Fully Initiated—Only Re-
quired 18,813 Names.
The Akin bill, which aims at the
elimination of fourteen state schools,
has been filed at the office of Secre-
tary of State B. F. Harrison, by Oli-
ver H. Akin, of Moore, author of the
The required number of signatures
with 1,153 to spare was secured, Mr.
Akin filing 20,971 names of signers to
his petition, which required 18,813
names. To initiate a measure of this
kind requires 8 per cent of the total
number of votes cast for the head of
the ticket at the last regular state elec-
The fourteen state institutions,
which the Akin bill proposes to do
away with, aro the district agricultural
schools, the two university prepara-
tory schools located at Tonkawa and
Claremore, the Alva, Ada, Tahlequah
and Weatherford normals, the girls'
college at Chickasha and the school of
mines at Wilburton.
The 20.971 names included the signa-
tures of citizens from every county in
the state. After securing more than
12,000 names, Mr. Akin withdrew his
original bill and filed a new one, mak-
ing some minor changes, lie adopted
a trade mark to prevent the bill being
circulated by enemies, and to prevent
fraudulent signatures being secured.
It is not probable a protest will be
filed against the measure. Most of the
work of securing signatures has been
done by Mr. Akin and his relatives.
The measure will be voted upon eith-
er at the August primaries or at the
general election in November, the
call for an election being at tlie discre
tion of the governor.
State Supt. Wilson Returns.
State Superintendent R. II. Wilson
has returned from Nashville, where he
attended the annual conference for ed-
ucation in the south and later the
southern commercial congress, deliv-
ering and address before the latter or-
ganization. While in Nashville, Super-
intendent Wilson attended the funeral
of the late Senator Bob Taylor, whose
d«>ath occurred during the conference.
The floods on the Mississippi prevent-
ed the return home by way of Mem-
phis, and Oaklahoma delegates wero
forced to come by way of St. Louis.

Oklahoma City. okla.—A telegram
rearing the signature of practically
avery state official, protesting the
grant of any part of the Chilocco In-
dian reservation in Kay county to any
' person or corporation for farm demon-
: stration purposes, wa s sent to Okla-
homa senators and congressmen at
Washington the other day. The tele-
gram was followed immediately by a
letter signed not only by state officials,
but by many prominent citizens of the
state as well, setting out more fully
the reasons for the protest.
The proposition to secure the gr;mt
appealed to those who have taken \Tg-
>rous steps to prevent it, as an attempt
to turn over to private citizens and
corporations, including the Interna-
tional Harvester company, a large area
j !>f the most valuable land in the state,
which should be. they claim, given to
Oklahoma when abandoned as an In-
dian school reservation by the govern-
The Chilocco Indian school reserva-
tion comprises thirteen and one-half
sections in Kay county adojining the
Kansas line. Aside from the agricul-
tural value of the land, the govern-
ment has erected in the past, school
buildings to the value of $,">00,000, and
the total value now is figured at from
$1,000,000 to $1,500,000.
The federal government has contem-
plated the abandonment of the reserva-
tion from time to time and with deep
(;uts made recently in the Indian appro-
priations, such a move is thought to be
highly probable in the near future.
Some time ago a proposition was ad-
vanced by Kansas people to turn "one
or more sections" of this reservation
over to Mr. Campbell of Nebraska, i
father of the dry farming system, and |
his associates for a dry farming exper-
imental station. It developed that "as-1
sociates' meant the harvester trust,
known as the International Harvester
company, which it is alleged, was to'
finance the scheme.
Citizens of Kay county learned that,
a bill is now proposed in congress,
backed by a part, if not the whole of
the Kansas delegation in congress, to'
grant to Mr. Campbell and his asso-
ciates one or more sections of the!
Chilocco reservation in fee simple for
twenty years, and they acted at once.
The Kay county people figured that
if the reservation is to be turned loose
by the government, it should go to the
state of Oklahoma, which is in a posi-
tion to demonstrate any kind of farm-
ing that may be necessary, and not to
any private individual or corporation.

For the chicken biscuit begin by
roasting a fine fat chicken, duly
washed and trussed, greased all over
and bacon-covered on the breast. Do
not stuff It, but put Inside half a dozen
stalks of celery and a peeled and quar-
tered apple. Lay a few more stalks
of celery In the bag, which needs a
small lump of butter in addition to
thick greasing, seal, and cook done,
taking care the bag does not break.
Remove carefully from the bag, and
while still hot. mince the meat as fine
as you can, mincing also the apple and
celery, which will bo cooked very soft.
