Notes From the
Norman High School
The "Trail" is coming under
way rapidly now with the many
;>ictures being taken daily. Fri-
day morning the Phileomatha lit-
ery society were grouped on the
steps of the High School building
and their pictures taken. There
were about 40 in the group and
they made a fine looking bunch of
youngsters. The Parliamentary
Debating Club were the victims
Friday afternoon as was also tho
first debating team. All of the
class pictures are now in and are
being grouped preparatory to be-
ing sent to the engarvers. The Y.
W. C. A .were at Orenbaun's Stu-
dio Friday afternoon after school.
The class debating teams were
taken the past week and the other
members of the "Trail" staff are
at work on their parts of the book.
Tlje business manager and his as-
sistants have enough "ads" to fill
the book and only want a few
choice ones to come in to fill their
part. The book is expected to be
delivered tw0 or three weeks be-
fore school is out if every one does
his part. This means the students
-of the school too.

We have just opened up a new garage and sales room in the E. B. Johnson building form-
erly occupied by S. K. McCall & Co. This building will be used exclusively for storage and sales
room. A separate room just to the east on the corner formerly occupied by our retail sales room
is being completely equipped with modern tools and machinery for our shop.
We desire to state to the public that we will endeavor to employ only the best mechanics
in our shop. All work done will be guaranteed and a trial will convince you that any work en-
trusted to us will be promptly and efficiently done.
You will find on our floor a complete line of Willys Overland Automobiles. These cars have stood the test
and we believe that we can give you more for your money in the Overland Car than any other Sales Agency can
offer. Fifty-six of these cars were sold in Norman last season and we have had very few complaints.
You will also find a complete line of Panhard Trucks. All sizes and styles of bodies. These trucks have
been tried through all kinds of service and have given complete satisfaction.
Federal Casings and
We will continue to handle the well and favorably known Federal line of tires and tubes. A complete stock
of all sizes always on hand.
A complete line of all supplies for mechanics, garages and automobile users will be carried. We will attempt
to carry the most complete stock of general supplies that has ever been carried in Norman.
A contract has been completed with the Willard Storage Battery Company and we will have in stock all
standard sizes of this remarkable storage battery. Without a doubt this is the best storage battery made. We
have tried them all and our experience has been that the Willard will outlast any storage battery made
