SHELDON GETS MOST^™™ F
EXCELLENT POSITION NGRAN1D CENTRAL
There should be but one thought
filling the minds of the whole
community at this time, and that
should be the Home Coming of
our soldier boys.
Sadness filled our hearts when
they went away, and gladness is
ours to enjoy when the boys come
home to stay, with a country re-
deemed from a tyrant's hand.
Norman should float a flag from
every home, on July 3rd and 4th.
The days when every soldier boy
within reading distance of this
message is invited to come to
Norman. The freedom of the city
is yours to enjoy, and every door
in every home is wide open to re-
ceive you. And glad hands are
reaching out now to greet you.
( Boys and War Mothers, the victo-
ry is won and the day is yours.
The flags in front of every home
will tell the story on July 3rd and
THE CIVIC COMMITTEE.
Looks as if the wheat and oats
farmers will have to do their har-
vesting between showers; if they
are ever given that privilege.
Some few began cutting on Mon-
day, but had to discontinue opera-
tion Tuesday morning when anoth-
er three-tenths fell, and it looks
as if we are to have more.
Oklahoma City had nearly an
inch of rain Monday night between
6:30 and 9 o'clock, but it didn't
rain here at all. The showers
seem to be scattering, but all lo-
calities getting their share soon-
er or later.
We can only live in hopes—and
some are so pessimistic as to be-
lieve we're going to have rain ev-
ery day in June.
The Transcript learns that Maj.
Seward Sheldon will resign his
position as city editor of the Ok-
lahoma City News in a few days
to take a position with the E. W.
Marland Oil company with head-
quarters at Ponca City, at a sal-
ary of $3000 per annum. Mr.
Sheldon is said to have made ar
expert of himself along gas and
electric lines, and his work with
the Marland company will be along
those lines in conection with an
electric light, power and gas plant
the company purposes installing
at Ponca City. It is learned that
he will spend several months in
the East investigating the great
] plants of that portion of the coun-
try, getting the best thought and
j experience of notable men in the
same kind of work. He expects
| to visit his young friend and co-
; graduate of the University, Geo.
| A. Smith, former Norman boy,
! who is now holding a fine position j
along the same lines at Baltimore, |
j Md. Major Sheldon made a fine
record in the army and is evident-
ly continuing that record in civil
J. W. Linton closed a deal on
Monday with Mrs. Sophie Witte,
whereby he became owner of the
Grand Central hotel property,
East Gray and Peters avenue. The
consideration is not given, Mr.
Linton saying it was a cash deal
and he got a bargain. He expects
to make considerable repairs and
improvements upon the house and
either rent it or sell it to some
good hotel man.
The Grand Central is one of the
first hotels established in Norman
as it was built very soon after the
opening of the country. It con-
tains a large number of rooms,
and is centrally located for a ho-
tel, being just opposite the city
hall. Mrs. Witte, the former own-
er, has moved to Oklahoma City
and will invest the hotel purchase
price in a home in that city. Mr.
Langford has a lease on the build-
ing, but will probably release it
to the new owner.

many complaints are being made

before Mayor Hutchin who will
probably fine them severely.
AGENCY RUN BY
C. W. Kuwitszky, secretary of
the Norman Retailers' associa-
tion, has conceived the idea of a
free employment bureau for the
harvest, bringing farmers and
men together. If there are any
farmers desiring help, he wishes
them to list their names ami lo-
cation with him. and if there are
any men desiring employment
they are asked to leave their
names and residences with him
and he'll try and bring them to-
gether. It is for mutual help and
benefit, and no charge whatever
will be made by Mr. Kuwitszky.

er Tale of
That all men who desire to join
the air service may have their
initial flight within a few hours
after they are accepted for enlist-
ment, is the information sent out
by the U. S. Army Recruiting
Headquarters at Oklahoma City.
All men desiring to enlist in the
air service will be sent by air-
plane from Oklahoma City to Post
It was originally authorized by
the War Department to send a
plane after each man who wrote
in requesting enlistment, but it
was found impossible in some
cases to send a ship to all towns
thruout the district. Now a man
may write to the Commanding Of-
ficer, Post Field, or to the U: S.
Army Recruiting Station, Okla-
homa City, stating that he desires
to fly to Post Field to enlist in the
air service and a letter will be
sent to him immediately giving
him full information as to how to
go about it. Applicants will be
furnished transportation from the
nearest auxiliary recruiting sta-
tion to Oklahoma City and from
that place will be sent by airplane
to Post Field for enlistment.

At a mass meeting of the citi-

submitted by Phil C. Kidd, to or-

By motion the meeting went on

The following temporary offi-
cers were elected: Phil C. Kidd,

The following plan of procedure
was adopted: That we propose the
organization of a Country Club
along the following lines:
We propose to capitalize for
$30,000.00, said capital stock to he
raised by the sales of shares of
j $100.00 each, and each share en-
1 titles the owner to one vote, and
one membership, which will take

I ants. ,
j At the earliest date practicable

j temporary chairman of all stock-
holders, and the necessary officers
| for the further promotion will be
elected, including nine directors,
(who will have the additional duty
| to pass on membership.
I It is also understood that after
a sufficient number of member-
ships have been obtained these
nine directors shall secure option
on several tracts of land for the
club, call a meeting of all the
stockholders, giving at least five
days notice in the Daily Trans-
cript, of the purpose of the meet-
ing, and at said meeting the stock-
holders will select the location by
a majority vote of those present,
one vote for each share of stock.
The directors will then close vhe

A club of this kind will contri-

many other reasons of personal
interest to all, we ask you to join
us in a movement that will estab-
lish the City of Norman as a pro-
gressive City of the First Class.
Please subscribe for more than
one share of stock if possible. The
more money, the better the club.

Dr. McVey's subject was the
"Maintainance of Democracy." a
most timely and apropriate one
for the present age, and in forci-
ble language he impressed upon
the graduates their duty to in ev-
■ry way maintain the democracy
of all nations and especially in
their own country. He paid a
marked tribute to the many states
men who had been exponents of
democracy, and held them up as
examples to be followed by the
college men and women of the day
in whose hands were placed in
large measure the destiny of the
nation. It was a most able ad
dress, full of sound logic and con

ously reeived by the commanding
officer and assured that every-
thing possible would be done to
comply with the request. Major
Giles feels certain we will have

besides a number of civil planes,

to cut them. The gang cuts the
