11 The Time of Holding tile Big State
Athl ^•tic Meet Changed from
April to May.
May 6 has been set as the date for
the Oklahoma interscholastic track
and field meet this year, according to
an announcement by University of
Oklahoma officials in whose hands
rests the holding of the state's great-
est scholastic event of the year. The
oratorical and musical contests and
the tennis and baseball tournaments
will be held Thursday and Friday,
May 1 and 5.
The change from the last week in
April, which since the beginning has
been the time of the meet, to the first
week in May was made at the request
of highschool teachers throughout the
state. A state law1 providing that'
every highschool and grade school'
teacher in Oklahoma take the county i
examinations which are held the last
j week in April occasioned the request]
j foi a change in date, as most of them
I desire to accompany their pupils to :
the contests held here.
i According to information in the |
| hands of the local officials of the as-j
. sociation, ihe liiio meet promises to
make greater advancement over that;
| of the last year than any previously.'

RECEIVED A BROKEN RIB
Come To Us
Miss Clarice Hodges, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Hodges, of 403
West Main, while out with a crowd of
young folks, coasting, last evening,
was the victim of quite a serious acci-
dent. The sled she was on was hitch-
ed to a jitney, and at the Varsity Shop
a quick turn of the automobile threw
her from the sled, and another sled
rai. into her. She was unconscious
.vhen picked up, and when removed to
her home was found to be suffering
from a fractured rib and numerous
finises. She soon regained conscious-'
r.ess and 's resting easy today. Miss
Lillian Gooding, who was on the sled 1
with Miss Clarice, also received many
| bruises. Coasting is a mighty nice1
and exciting sport, but gets too ex- \
citing some times.
We trust the young lady will soon
recover and congratulate her it was1

. Yesterilay we promised to tell the
readers of the Transcript why the
east side school house was built where
it now stands. There are many other
incidents that happened in the build- . , ,
ing of our city that would make good w"ole school h<

In the beginning, everybody wanted
to get a corner lot, and then wanted
the town to grow up around their par-
ticular lot, and in order to get a corn-
er, on the right corner, several lot
owners would group together and try
to persuade everybody else that the
future town would be right where
their stakes were set. The stakes
were driven clear out on the prairie
on the east side of the track, and
enough ground was staked off to
make a London, or New York, and
everybody was rich in their own feel-
ings. Small tadpoles were soon full
grown frogs, and began to croak, and
make a terrible noise about something
that wa3 going to happen and make
them all rich on account of their stakes
being driven down in the right spot.
Many of these stakes rotted away, and
fortune never came to the owners.
The surplus, and promising lots that
no one needed had to go back, as un-
occupied lots always do.
Out in the country east of town
farms were staked the same way that
lots were staked in the cities and
tcrwns, and about that time a man
from Indiana came along and staked,
or bought out, a "sooner," and we were
the sole owner of 160 acres of land ad-
joining Norman on the east, and on
♦Ms allotment the government had
designated a country school house site,
and this is just what we wanted. We
had but little school house experience
from the inside and wanted to help our
boys get enough learning in order not
to be compelled to chop wood with a
dull ax as we had done. To own a
whole school house was better than we
we came west to grow
up with the country. We had "that
school house lariated and staked down
and was going to keep it. We changed
our mind, and it got away.

ticulars about that school house.
