PIONEER COUPLE CELE-
BRATE GOLDEN WEDDING
Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Gordon
celebrated their fiftieth wedding
anniversary at the home of their
daughter, Mrs. C. B. Allen, three
miles northeast of Cashion last
Sunday. Mr. Gordon ordered
all the good eatables he could
think of and sent out word, broad-
cast to everyone to come and eat
dinner at his expense and enjoy
the day. Dinning his long tailed
wedding coat, Mr. Gordon was a
c mspicuous figure in the assem-
blage, and as host, reinacted a
custom of pioneer days, when
the whole neighborhood would
gather at some hospitable home
and partook of a genuine ban-
Mr. and Mrs. Gordon came to
this country in the opening and
homesteaded the farm at which
the celebration was held and
made that their home until about
three years ago they bought res-
idence property in Cashion where

Mr. and Mrs. Gordon are typ-
ical pioneer people, the kind of
people that made Oklahoma one
of the best states in the union,
and have friends far and near as
was evidenced by the attendance
at their anniversary celebration.
Relatives and friends from Iowa
Kansas and other states and re-
latives and friends from different
parts of Oklahoma, besides the
nearby neighbors surrounded
that board of plenty in the old
farm home. And before leaving
wished Mr. and Mrs. Gordon
many more moons of happiness
before that going down of life's
sun and earth's work is done.
Last Saturday night while re-
turning home from Cashion, G.
H. Davisson run into S. A.
Moore's buggy with his Ford,
throwing Mr. Moore out of the
baggy. Mr. Davissons lights had
been tampered with while his
car was standing on the streets
and he was trying to run home
without them. Mr. Moore was
somewhat bruised but was not
More Than Double The Amount
of the Third Liberty Loan
But It's "Over the Top"
Cashion has officially received
her quota in the Fourth Liberty
Bond sales and it is $10,083.64.
An estimate of the quota was
given in our last issue but was
underestimated. A meeting was
held the first of this week to dis-
tribute the quota to each indiv-
idual. A list of the assignments
of amounts assigned to each in-
dividual can be ascertained by
seeing S. W. Hogan or Melville
Caster. As soon as supplies are
received those who desire may
go to either of the banks and sub-
scribe their quota before the
committee calls on them. Every
individual now knows that their
financial responsibility to the
government has been fixed and
they can materially assist by
calling at one of the banks and
signing up for their qtota. On
the day of the drive a committee
of both men and women will as-
sist with the work.
The followfor men assisted in j
arranging the quotas for each!
