MADE BIG HIT AT GUTHRIE
Agent Baker and his station
force, with their families, attended
tht Santa Fe entertainment given by
the Oklahoma University Glee Club
at Guthrie last night and renort it a
grand success. These entertainments
are given regularly at the expense of
the Santa Fe for their employes. Mr.
Baker says he has attended a number
of similar entertainments given by
the Kansas and Pennsylvania univer-
sities, but he thinks the Norman boys
put on the best show. They played to
a packed and well pleased house at
the Masonic Temple and were highly
complimented by Mr. Busser, super-
intendent of Santa Fe entertainment.
He told them they had made a de-
cided hit and their success for the
trip to California was assured.
A carload of Santa Fe employes
and their families from Purcell, and
another carload from Oklahoma City,
besides many others from different
points attended the entertainment.

Richards is a fine leader and has a

Vanderbilt Quartette, and studied
quite a while in Chicago. Prior to en-

We have lived long enough to see
the tallow candle come and go; the
tallow candle that mother used to
use, back in happy childhood days.
We have seen the coming of electric
lights, that makes midnight darkness
lighter than day.
We have sten the slow plodding ox
team left behind by the swift movinir
automobile that goes by like a bird
on the wing. We have seen all this
and more, too. These lines you are
leading were printed on a press
driven by electric power. The old-
fashioned hand-power press has gone
with ancient ways.
There is something coming, there
is something going, every day, to
make life happier, brighter and bet-
ter. While we enjoy this changing
panorama of life's scenes, we would
not live always, and yet we want to
live in Norman long enough to see
another spot rubbed off. That spot
dims the luster of our fair city. It is
as ancient as the cliff dwellers way of
lliving. It is a glimpse of darkest
Africa. That spot looks like a drop
of ink in the middle of a sheet of
white paper. It is worse than "The
Old Fire House," and should be re-
moved. It is our seedy old "Com-
munity Park," managed %by every-
body, and owned by no one. It should
be called our Municipal Waste Basket.
It is a sink hole for the tax payees
money, and when we say this we do
not cast any reflection on any one
for past management, no more than
we blame our grandmothers for using
We are now, as a community, think-
Jig about better roads, and yet we
lire not blaming any one but our-
selves for the bad ones that we now
have, and so it is with our so-called
! "City Park."
, But there is a better way of keep-
| ing it. and no more money is needed
than is now used each year. Better
methods can be used and leaks
stopped up, and by and by we will
show you where the leaks are.
THE CIVIC COMMITTEE.
Ten entries were received in "The
Transcript's Shower of Gold for
Babies" yesterday. The success of
the big undertaking is assured, as it
has struck a popular chord. Astute
parents are aware of the wonderful
opportunities held forth in the offer
of Six Hundred Dollais in Gold to be
awarded six babies without a cent of
Many are think of entering the
race, but are awaiting for the names
to appear thereby matching their
prospects of winning with those of
Parents of babies who are think-
ing of withholding the babies nomi-
nation for any length of time, how-
ever, are making a great mistake, as
the arrangement of the vote schedule
is such that it will be impossible to
"put off" until towards last and ex-
pect to win.
Every inducement is held forth to
early entrants so there will be little
cause for murmuring at a future time
when the vote schedule will be re-
One of those interested asked why
the management of The Transcript
«lid not employ a solicitor to canvass
for new subscribers. The attitude of
The Transcript in this matter is that
i real good solicitor would have to be
brought from another town. There fs
little doubt but that with the quality
and price of The Transcript that it
would add many subscribers to The
Transcript's already enviable list,
but the time necessary to do so would
stretch over a period of several
months. Then, to sum it up, The
Transcript's good money would leave
with the solicitor. Whereas, dividing
the proceeds with babies residing in
fTie community, the money would be
kept in circulation in and around Nor-
man, and those winning the larger
prizes might establish their future by
favor of The Transcript.
The Transcript stands for Norman
and the irtterests represented in
Cleveland and McClain counties.
An increased circulation will be of
great benefit to the advertisers. A
successful campaign will prove more
than before that the people of this
section approve of a classy newspaper
such as The Transcript is producing,
and no efforts will be spared to make
the paper better and bettev.
So let's all boost for the newspaper
that's boosting for the community

THREE DID NOT SAIL.
At the last moment, the board of
control of the University decided
t.hat three of the young men slated
to go with the Glee Club on the
California trip, were ineligible to
make the trip, as they had not made
the proper grades in their studies
during the past semester, so the
good ship set sail without these three
sai'ors. They were Ivan Richardson,
president of the club; Herman Lorenz
and Roy McKeehan.
Tough luck, but what are rules for
if not to be obeyed and enforced?
The club travel in a car bearing a
streamer on each side "Oklahoma
University Glee Club, Best in the
West." Last night the club sang at
Guthrie, tonight they sing at
Arkansas City. Concerts in Newton,
Dodge City, La Junta, Raton, Win-
slow, Williams, Seligman, Needles,
Barstow, Fresno and San Francisco
will complete the tour.
