MRS. DONOHEW'S FIRE
The farm residence of Mrs. O. K.
ponohew on Route 2, some eight
miles northeast of Norman, w*< com-
pletely destroyed by fire yesterday
(Feby 2(>, 1917) about noon, with all
its contents, Mrs. Donohew saving-
nothing except an old quilt. She was
out in the field at the time the fire
was discovered, and it was burned to '
the ground before she and the
neighbors could get to it. Among the
property destroyed was about $1,000
worth of books, relics and other prop-
erty belonging to her son, Marion,
who was a great collector of such
There was some insurance on house i
and contents in a home co-operative
association. The home wil| bet re-
built, but almost all of Marion's prop-
erty cannot be replaced.
Mrs. Donohew is an old resident,
and much sympathy is expressed for
her in her considerable loss. •

To Whom It May Concern:
".ir. Nat Fisher has been authorized
«> present the film play. "The Drug
Terror," in Norman as an educational
picture. The Presentation is under the
ih oi -es of the University Y. M. C. A.
and the play has been approved both
b\ the Y. M. C. A. and by the
Mithoritie« of the University.'
Yours very truly,
Dean of Undergraduates, University.
To Whom It May Concern:
I have investigated the Photo-
Play "The Drug Terror" under the
ii ! • . riert of Mr. Nat Fisher. He
hns been given authority to put on
this photo-play in Norman for the
benefit of the students of the Okla-
hom8 i nivei iity as an Mutational
F. D. STEGER,
Y. M. C. A. Secretary, Norman.
Norman's part of the project will
be to raise a considerable amount by
contributions, as the city cannot vote
bonds for county roads. The boivl is-
sue will be up to the farmers and land
owners of the township. Norman's
task will be to take care of the road
from here to the river, and by con-
tributions, help out the work through'
Norman and Little River townships.
A meeting will be held soon in
Little River township, to get the
ideas of the farmers of that locality
and large landowners in that town-
ship have already expressed them-
selves as very much in favor of
making a bond issue.
"Whatever is worth doing is worth
doing well." If we are going to build
this road, we should do it right, for
a haphazard, poor construction would
not be worth while and prove much
more costly in the end.
