Judge Robertson Praises
Judge Williams Highly
Thursday evening, Judge J. B.
A. Robertson addressed a fair sized
audience in the District Court
Room in this city in behalf of the
candidacy of Judge Williams, the
man who defeated him in the recent
He made a splendid speech in
behalf of the candidacy of Judge
Williams, and exposed the pre-
tentious of John Fiefds, the Ife-
publican candidate, and answered
most of the criticisms the Republi-
cans are making against the Demo-
cratic State Administration. He
made votes for the head of the
democratic ticket in this city by
strengthening a number of demo-
crats who had become indifferent
and lukewarm towards supporting
the Democratic ticket, feeling that
a change would do no harm if all
that is charged up to the Democra-
tic present administration is true.
The charges that were doing the
most harm, for the most part, had
been made by democrats seeking
nomination in the primary, many
of which were personal and made
for campaign effect, rather than
because of the substance of truth
they contained. lie knew this to
be true from the charges that were
made against himself by opponents
in the campaign.
He said democrats should forget
all about the strife engendered in
the primary and get together and
see to it that the democratic ticket
was elected from seuator to cou-
stable, for in so doing, the voters
would be insured of the best and
most economical administration of
the affairs of state that any politi-
cal party would give.

University of Oklahoma is repre-
sented by Dean J. C. Monnet.

markable growth and high stand-

represent the works of the nation's
greatest artists. Ok lahoma is fort-
