More and more is il becoming recoj^-
a*d that Col. Theo< ore Roosevelt is
the one dominating figure in the uf-
. fairs of the United States of today,
and that he is to he a mighty factor 111
determining the future course of this
; country. It is recognized that ho has
hnt complete grasp, that vision, thnt
energy, that courage, that devotion,
.vhich is needed in the future affairs
<>f th ■ nation. The Transcript firmly
believes thnt such n man is needed at
rhe head of the nation in these times
>f stress and danger, and believes he
should be and will bo nominated by the
Republicans in Juno.
Colonel Roosevelt is iust home from
a trip to the West Indies, and, show-
ing the trend o$ opinion, The New
York Sun. which cannot be suspected
of partiality, devotes a 3-column edi-
torial to his journey under the title
"The Flight of a Meteor."
His reception, it says, affords new
evidence of "the enormous impression
that this remarkable man has made
upon his times. ... He sets out
as a private citizen, but he cannot
escape from his own fame or from the
eager interest that his career excitc9
among all men. His journey takes the
semblance of a triumphal progress in-
stantantenously this ship drops anchor
m the island port. Honors, civil and
military, are heaped upon him at every
:>i>l>ortunity. His visit lights up the
low. dull, backwater existence of
one-half million of scattered people
like the presage of a meteor. He
leaves behind him impressions of
spiritual and thrill and material pomp
tnd splendor which will be talked of
i! 1 Dcrlatives so long as the toddling
children of today may survive to recall
I his visit."
Commenting on this editorial the
Kansas City Star says:
He lands in New York and at once
becomes a leading figure in the news
of the day. Ex-Presidents usually are
soon forgotten. Here is a man who
has been out of office for eight years
and yet still is the storm center of
American life. More persons today
are interested in what Roosevelt say$
than in the words of any other man
now living.
It is literally true that he has in-
fluenced the entire mental life of this
country. He did the same thing for
t lie seven years of his administration.
He has continued to do it since he be-
came a private citizen.
The reason is evident. Roosevelt
has shown a unique combination of
idealism and practicality of comprc-
ension of national problems and en-
ergy in finding and urging the next
step in their solution. He is at the
same time a man of vision and a man
of affairs. There are many prophets
in the country and many fighters. But
thctgreat prophet, who is also a great
fiehter, does not appear more than
once or twice in a generation. When
he doc ; appear he naturally becomes
the leader of his age.
In the present world crisis brought
on by the war, when old standards
have been destroyed and nations have
been forced to readjust their policies
and modes of thought, it was inevit-
able that the course of the United
States should have tieen p*)foundly
ffected by Roosevelt. He was the
one man before the public who com-
prehended the new problems and their
significance to this country.
While President W'lson was still
ssiiring the Nation that its isolation
prevented it from having any vital
concern in the affairs of Europe, while
Congress was asleep, while presiden-
ial aspirants were dodging, and while
the industrial leaders were devoting
themselves to making financial profit
out of the situation, one voice was
raised, and one only, for preparedness.
By virtue of his sincerity, his in-
formation arid his understanding, he
made himself heard, and gradually
brought the government to a partial
acceptance of his program.
He still remains, however, the one
conspicuous man who has grasped the
real meaning of preparedness as part
of one great national policy. While
others are urging this or that pre-
paredness measure in a fragmentary
way, he is proposing a comprehensive
program of social justice which will
give every citizen a stake in the coun-
try, and which will make militarv
training contribute to national ef-
ficiency. He has learned the lesson of
Germany, where all citizens are ex-
pected to co-operate to do away with
misery and want, and to make a coun-
try worth fighting for, in the eyes of
even the poorest. He has made a
practical application of this lesson to
the United States.
Because he has a program which
the country needs at this time, and be-
cause he is courageous enough to urge
it, not for political effect, bu^because
he believes it is right, Roosevelt is the
country's real leader today. His po-
rtion does not depend on the cqprice
tf politicians or conventions. He has
won it by the continuing value of his
services to the Nation.
It makes no difference what the po-
litical manipulators do. Where Mc-
Gregor sits, there is the head of the

Possibility of being called to the
Mexican border is now being consider-
ed by students of the University of
Oklahoma who are members of the
Oklahoma signal corps. Should it be-
come necessary to call out the militia,
the signal corps would be the first
called upon, according to Lieutenant
Moore of Fort Sam Houston, who has
iust completed an examination of the
local company and declared everything
in excellent condition. Student militia-
men arc chiefly those taking work in
the college of engineering.

Oklahoma's school of law, maintain-
ed at the University of Oklahoma, has
again been given a place with the
leading legal schools of the United
States, according to the report of
Augustus S. Downing, representing
the New York board of regents, who
has just completed an examination of
he Oklahoma School. Commissioner
Downing complimented Dean J. C.
Monnet very highly on the standards
and quality of instruction of the
Sooner school.
There are now more than a hundred
and twenty-five young men studying
for the legal profession in the Oklaho-
ma institution which is one of the best
equipped law schools in the United
Norman, Oklahoma, April 8, 1916.
Great interest is being taken this
year in the County Track and Field
Meet. Several of the county schools
have been visited by students of the
University in to-operation with the
Y. M. C. A. and Miss Kate Barbour,
County Superintendent of Schools. At
many of the schools it was found that
pupils have already begun to practice
and prepare for the meet. In some of
the southern schools, the base ball and
basket ball teams are practicing regu-
larly in hopes of becoming more ef-
ficient, that they may defeat the
teams of the schools of other section:;.
The purpose of the visit is to try to
help the pupils to better understand
I the meet, by talking to them am! dem-
| onstrating how the different events
are carried out. By these informal
talks and demonstrations we hope
more interest will be aroused among
the pupils. It is impossible to reach
all of the schools, and in the schools
that did not compete last year we sin-
• cerely hope the teachers have talked
and explained to the pupils the sig-
nificance of this meet.
| As all the teachers and pupils know,
j since the letter and prize list have
I been sent out, the merchants of Nor-
man have very generously given many
beautiful and useful prizes. The most
practical way to show our apprecia
tion for this grateful favor is to pat-
i ronize them. Whenever in Norman we
should bear this in mind, and do for
others what they have done for us.
From the little gardens, the farms and the big plains, all
