NORMAN, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JULY 17, 1919.
PRICE FIVE CENTS.
The July, 1919, term of county
court convened at 9 o'clock a. m.
Thursday, July 17th, at the court
house, with County Judge Allen
presiding. The following Jurors
were questioned as to their quali-
fications and accepted.
J. R. Bridgwater, Leo Ullman,
A. S. Turbyfill, W. F. Emery, C.
W. Vaughn, W. A. Keeble, Ray
Fischer, J. H. Martin, W. R. Fin-
igan, J. A. Vincent, A. R. Barton,
Geo. Orenbaun, Robert Muldrow
and J. H. Jack. A number who had
been called to act as jurors were
excused on account of having
very necessary work at home.
The cigarette cases against the
proprietor and clerks at the Ter-
minal cafe are being tried Thurs-
day afternoon. They are charged
with selling cigarettes to Illinois.
The three cases against Frank
Wolf will be tried on Friday. He
is charged in one case with being
intoxicated in a public pile; a:."i
the other two charge him with vi-
olating the prohibitory law. Th re
are also several other important
cases to be tried.
COME, GET YOUR APRONS.
Mrs. E. J. Keller, secretary of
the local Red Cross board, re-
quests that all ladies who have not
called for their aprons that were
used in surgical dressing will do
so at once, for after this week
they will otherwise be disposed of.
CO. EXCISE BOARD
The Transcript is informed that
it was in error in its publication
in Wednesday's issue that the
Board of County Commissioners
are the county excise board. The
board really consists of:
C. F. Cox, county commissioner.
Ernest Helms, county clerk
Geo. Allen, county judge.
Jim Corbett, county treasurer.
W. E. Barnard, county assessor.
Tom Cheat wood, county attor-
W. R. Clark, county supt.
These men will meet on 26th
of July as the excise board and
make the appropriations and fix
rates, provided the state board
of equalization reports to it by
that time—otherwise it will ad-
journ from day to day until it
hears from the state board. It is
understood in well informed cir-
cles that the state board is con-
sidering raising the valuation of
all real estate in the state 40 per
cent above the figures placed up-
on it by the county assessors.
Notice of Charter
If the gentleman or lady who
sent a communication to the
Transcript criticising its sins of
omission and commission will
send his or her nagie, which he or
she forgot to append to the ar-
ticle, the matter of publishing will
be considered. The Transcript
does not publish annonymous
communications, unless it knows

cording to Ray Berry, owner of
the University theatre, his lease
of those premises does not expire
for a long time after January 1,
1920, and he hopes to retain pos-
session of the room. "I need it
for my business," he says.
W. W. WARREN BUYS
THE VARIETY SHOP
Geo. M. Davis, having conclud-
ed to get into the oil game exten-
sively, having been quite success-
ful at it, has sold his stock of va-
riety goods to W. W. Warren,
who is moving it today from the
McMackin building to the room
next to Mayfield's drug store
formerly occupied by the J. G
Williams' store. Mr. Warren will
add to the stock extensively, and
will be open for business in a
Mr. Davis bought the variety
stock from Roy Carter about a
year ago and has built up a fine
patronage, making a good success
of it—but thinks he has something
better in the oil business. The
Transcript wishes both Warren
and Davis the best of success.
