and probably the only thing that
will prevent them getting ik is that
they got into the game too late.
The only other active candidate
for the honor of entertaining the
convention is Ponca City, and that
is thought to be so far out of the
way—away up on the northern
border of the state — that some
other central point would be pre-
ferable. No more central point
than Norman is conceivable, and
in every way it would be desir-
able. The University auditorium
would be a splendid place for the
meeting, and the accessibility of
the town to all parts of the state
is most admirable.
The delegates from Norman to
McAlester are L. D. Abney, Geo.
Allen, John E- Luttrell, J. L.
