Resolutions of sympathy and re-

now it is my desire to deal with a
few specific ordinances, which if
enforced, in my judgment, will
make Norman a better town to live
in, a better town in which to raise

The evils of bad roads are ad-
mitted by everyone. If the actual
money loss they entail each year
could be definitely set forth in
figures the sum would be startling,
and by comparison with the sum
necessary to put the highways into
first class condition, would at or.ee
suggest the permanent improve-
ment of our highways as a sound
business proposition. The attention |
of the people has not been called !

interest in the same; to brim; :
