With a grand flourish of fire-

Anniversary Celebration of the
City of Yule passed into history

charge of the affair went to bed

and tiresome work wa.; not in

According to flyers who witness
ed the tragedy, Locklear’s plane
appeared under control at all time

We suppose that the reason
j that there was such a light vote

district noomination for congress
with Stafford a shade in the lead
was indicated by the first returns
received in Oklahoma City last
of the district.
True to expectations of election
phophets, St fforl piled up a
strong lead in Oklahoma City, re-
ports indicating that he will get
nearly two-thirds of the demo-
cratic vote of the city, while
Swank appeared to have a margin
>of several thousand on his op-
ponent in the southern counties,
in which lay his most consistent
suppore. In Murray county Staf-
ford appeared to be stronger than
in any of the other counties south
of Oklahoma county, Swank’s
strength in the south was dimin-
ished appreciable by the showing
of W. M. Franklin.
In the county in the contested
offices the count is so close in
most instances that only the offic-

as we go to press there is no way
in finding out who the nominees
will be on either side. Friday’s

tain the complete list of nominees
