NEW OAKLAND cars not only wear well in service but also wear well in your regard. New Oak
lands are economical to run and maintain. Only the highest grades of steel and other materia!
and workmanship is maintained throughout the entire process of their manufacture; only the most
modern, approved appliances and standard equipment on these cars. These things make ihe New Oak-
land a durable car, reduce the cost of upkeep and prolong its life ot service which in the end is the largest
item of economy. The low suspension and reduction of weight reduces wear and tear on tires and saves
fuel. The Oakland-Stewart vacuum gasoline feed doing away with the pressure system saves gasoline.
The silent Oakland-Northway motor, with its perfectly balanced reciprocating parts and specially design-
ed throttle valve and manifold, gives full value for every drop of gasoline it uees. For a Oakland see—

A plea for the Belgian sufferers
from Gov. elect R. L. Williams,
state chairman of the Belgian Re-
lief Committee, directed to Mayor
Dinkier, supplemented by a tele-
| phone call urging immediate action,
resulted in a canvass of the busi-
ness district Tuesday afternoon by
Mayor Dinkier and Trustees A. C.
Black and A. P. Herseher. While the
committee were unable to see all
i lie business men, the result proved
I very satisfactory. The letter from
the siate committee to Mayor Dink
ler and the list of donations received
are appended below.
Oklahoma City, Dec. 8, 1914.
F, A. Dinkier, Mayor,
The non-combatants in Belgium
—men, women and children are,
through no fault of their own, upon
the verge of wholesale starvation.
With their crops ruined, their re-
serve supply exhausted, surrounded
by a ring of steel, their one hope
lies in donations of food from this
great neutral nation.
We write to ask you to name a
committee for relief in Belgium,
which will take charge of local do-
nations of food in co-operation with
this hody, so that there may be
sent from this state shipments of
food and clothing to help these suf-
Clothing is very acceptable, as
the winter is very severe, and these
people are forced to live in partial-
ly burned buildings and tents.
However no secondhand clothing
can be used, as there are so many
difficulties to overcome in getting
food and clothing into Belgium.
Flour is in greater demand than any
other article. This Hour has to be
shipped in a special sack prepared
for this purpose. However, for
every $1.25 donated a fifty pound
sack of flour will be shipped, free of
all cost, to Belgium and delivered
to these people.
Won't you please appoint a com-
mittee of good men and women in
yout city to take up this work, and
have them report all contributions
to Mr. G. G Sohlberg, of Oklahoma
City, who is treasurer of the state
committee. Immediately upon re-
ceipt of contributions .he will con-
vert same into flour and it will be
transmitted at once to Belgium.
R. L. WILLIAMS,
We, the undersigned citizens of
Hennessey and vicinity, realizing
the awful conditions existing and
suffering endured by the citizens,
women and children in this devasta-
ted country of Belgium, do most
humbly give the amount set oppo-
site our respective names for the
relief and assistance of these people.
