I sue for hard surfaced roads in Ok-
lahoma was introduced in that
body on Thursday. It provides
for a bi-partisan board of four,
two Democrats and two Republi-
cans, to be appointed by the gov-
ernor and Gov. Robertson is ex-

sion. It lays out some twenty-
eight routes east and west and
north and south through the state.
Route No 2, north and south j
passes through Norman, but the j
cast and west road through Cleve-

who was returning from the army.
Mrs. Roberts was not hurt ma-
terially. They had been married
only a week or two.

Old rumors that exist-
t to the United States
breaking relations with Germany
in 1917 are reappearing, among
which are, Mr. Wilson is too
friendly toward the Germans and
he is the greatest advocate of Bol-
shevism in the world.
The French people, every one of
whom has lost a father, brother or
husband, killed at the front, and
nearly all of whom have been in
towns shelled or bombed by the
Germans during the war, cannot
understand the American sense of
fair play toward Germany
But the root of the entire mat-
ter is the fact that France, with
half the population of Germany, is
virtually afraid of the Teuton pow-
er just across the Rhine. V ranee
realizes well that if Von !• alken-
j hayn had not committed the error
of detaching several corps of Von
Kluck's army when the Russians
invaded East Prussia in August,
1914, the Battle of the Mame
might have had a different out-
come. And they still fear that the
Hun hordes may again sweep
through France, and not commit
ert-ors, overwhelming the nation
and seizing its ports long before
the British forces could arrive in
strength or American forces could
even be mobolized.
