NO MAN'S LAND
Over in Europe there is a strip
of land called "No Man's Land."
It was devastated by war Right
here in Norman we have a piece of
of land % that looks almost as deso-
^ late. It has been torn up with
a plow from year to year, and
grew tall, unsightly weeds. Old
tin cans were buried there, and
many an ancient recepticle of this
kind still lies scattered around like
exploded shells. But the war is
| over now and peace has been de-
clared and the earth over there,
as well as in Norman, will blos-
som as the rose.

received a telegram this

signed "SLIM JIM," saying
that he will arrive in this
city sometime this week and
that he is going to make a
prolonged visit with the
people of this city and that
he will visit every home
and disappoint no one. He
will probably make an ap-
pearance next Saturday.
Tell every body that you

It is said he received $350,000 for
