LOVE KILLSJIRST STEER
Governor Cruce Addresses Assembled
Host and Extends Cordial Wel-
come to Captains of Industry
—Day of Rejoicing.
Oklahoma City, Okla.—The flash of
an eight pound sledgehammer as the
mighty arm of Col. Jack Love, chair-
man of the state corporation commis-
sion, sent It crashing against the head
of a handsome large red steer, at
10:45 Monday morning, Oct. 9, marked
the real opening of the Sulzberger and
Sons company's $3,000,000 Oklahoma
City packing plant. There were at
least 10,000 people present In tho
killing room on the seventh floor of
the slaughter house, where the cere-
monies took place, and in the various
buildings and the grounds. Probably
10,000 more visited the plant during
day, as the cars were crowded all day
long and evening and automobiles
filled the road from morning to night.
Sharply at 10:30, Superintendent
Carl F. Welhener signaled with his
right hand, and the big whistle at
the plant opened up, being followed
Immediately by all of the whistles ln
the city and those of the locomotives
ln the railroad yards. The din contin-
ued for fully five minutes, after which
the opening ceremonies proceeded.

lahoma City Chamber of Commerce
presided and in a few words ln which
he referred to the marvelous growth
of the city, Introduced Governor Lee
Cruce, who made the opening address
on behalf of the state.
"This Is not a time for speechmak-
lng, but for universal rejoicing," said
Governor Cruce. "All nature seems to
smile with us today in commemora-
tion of this joypus event. But I see
that my friend. Col. Jack Love, is im-
patient for the slaughter and thirsting
for this steer's blood so will speak for
only a very few minutes. This Is a day
of rejoicing, not only for Oklahoma
City, but for the state and the great
southwest surrounding us. This marks
a new era of prosperity, growth and
development of this section. There are
four things that represent Oklahoma's
greatest wealth, hogs, cattle, alfalfa
and cotton, and the coming of this
magnificent enterprise will do much
to stimulate stock-raising in the state."
"Governor Cruce then spoke of the
fact that the state Is being discriminat-
ed against in freight rates, saying
that it is not right, and that the state
must stand up and fight for an equal
show with other communities. He
placed the blame partly on the federal
courts, saying: "If the federal courts
will keep their hands off of the deal-
ing of the state corporation commis-
sion, we will soon force the railroads to
give us a square deal,' at which point
he was roundly cheered by the crowd.
