things that made the constitutional

And the dean shook his head with

edited a book of readings, wrote me
after the constitutional convention,
enclosing a questionnaire about the

1 he dean had a great race, back in
1907, when lie threw his hat and am-
bitious into his one horse buggy,
hitched his colt up, and started out to
beat three,men who filed against him
for representative from Cleveland
county. He passed tfirough varied
experiences, and his classes out in the
university, where he was professor of
political science, were neglected.
W ell, things were going his way,
despite certain disadvantages. In
fact, Cleveland county went democra
tic in the preliminary election, and
by 93 votes the dean rode into the
spotlight. Then, the pesky republi-
cans and independents got together,

"And they were married and lived
lappily ever after", was the telegram
received here yesterday from Williams,
Arizona, where Miss Rosetta Briegel
and Paul Barton were married at 9
a. m. Saturday.
Mr. and Mrs. Barton will spend two
months in California, after which they
will make their home in Tampico,

1 he bride was a member of the
chemistry faculty of the University of
' Oklahoma. She was graduated from
the university in the class of 1915, and
md as a student wr-s very prominent in
school activities, having held among
other offices those of president of the
women's council and president of the

by her were the Litzeiser medal in 1915,

The South's Contributions
"Well, he wanted to know—you see
he was getting this stuff up for a
paper, which I never got to read
what the south contributed. I told
him separate coaches for niggers,
and Jim Crow. He asked what the
north had given. I told him. And
lie wanted to know what the Indians
"You didn't know, did you, that the
oath of officc in this state-is that
used by the Cherokee Indians, and
incorporated by them in their consti-
tution, of 1839. This prescribes that
no legislator shall acept fee from
railroads, and that he shall accept
nothing to influence his vote. This
is the only oath of office in the world,
I guess, that requires this, and it is
due to the Indians.
And About Cigars
\\ ell, well, nowadays you can take
a cigar from a campaigner without
being accused of violating the law,
for these cigars are so punk that they
have been decided by public opinion
and not by the courts that they are
nothing of value."
And the dean affectionately angled
i cigar in his vest pocket, and wished
that the clock would move around to

straddled the caustic dean.
The issue they raised was that of
absolute prohibition. Dean Buchanan

until its recent dffalcation had
advocated local option. Well, the
dean was up a stump, and he knew
it, but trust a Tcnnesseean to with-
draw up into his stump. The Dean
it firmly, and advocated his plat
form. Several Norman ministers j
who knew that the dean stood a
pretty fair chance of winning, stood
by him. He won. In the conven-
tion, the dean wrote the oath of
office, championed the negro seg-
regation clauses, the Jim Crow law,
and other good southern doctrines.
1 he dean still feels his predilec-
tions. Last year a textbook was sub-
mitted to him, which he rejected be-
cause the author quoted a speech in
'which the speaker had likened two
