must pick cotton; that is in the
fall. There is another time
when they just must help to thin
it, or "chop it out"; that is in
the spring. There are about
three months in the winter and
that many in the summer when
the children of cotton raisers
have nothing to do. These three
months in the summer and three
months in the winter could con-
stitute two school terms, thus
giving the children six monthis-
schooling during the year, and I
yet not interfere with any work
that their parents might at oth-
er times have for them to do.
In a good many ways it is
fortunate that Norman is locat-
ed so near to Oklahoma City.
Great operas, musical product-
ions, etc., cannot be produced
h£re but can at Oklahoma City.
The fact that we are so near
there offers us an opportunity to
attend these things when oth-
erwise we would be deprived of
doing so. And there are a num-
ber of other good things that
we get from the nearness of Ok-
lahoma City to us. But it is al-
so unfortunate that we are so
close. For instance, people of-
ten go up to the City to do their
shopping, imagining by so do-
ing that they will get better
goods or goods for less money.
The merchants of Norman need
all the trade of Norman's peo-
ple. You can get just as good
values here as Oklahoma City
can offer you. Every time you
go to Oklahoma City and spend
a cent that you can just as well
spend at home you help build up
Oklahoma City and at the game
time help to stagnate Norman.
Do all your trading at home.
Our merchants will be glad to
get you anything you want or
also black eyes.

Why not adopt a system of
both winter and summer schools
to solve the compulsory school
problem? The whole southern
part of the state is protesting
against the enforcement of the
law because it takes the children
out of the cotton fields. There
is a time when the children just
