GLEAN UP DAY
There was a good attendance at
the Clean Up Day meeting at the
city hall on Tuesday night, all tlie
captains of the different wards and
many of their workers being present
and all were enthusiastic o'er the
proposition and agreed to do every-
thing possible to make it a success.
The Clean Up bills and pampl.'ets
are now being printed and will be
distributed by the captains of the
wards. The bills will tell the house-
holders what is expected of them in
the matter of getting their trash pick-
ed up and placed in containers in the
alleys ready for the trucks on Sep-
tember 18th, and what to do with the
weeds and manure piles. It will also
be impressed upon the citizenship
that they "must" clean up; that it is

WILL REPAIR ROAD
I At the luncheon of the Norman Re-
tailer's association held on Thursday,
Mr. W. B. Howard made a talk, call-
ing attention to the bad condition of
the road from the west end of the
South Canadian bridge to the Dick-
erson corner near Newcastle and
showing that such condition was di-
verting much trade from Norman. He
thought $500 would put it in good
shape, and believed if the Norman
merchants would contribute $250 of
that amount, a like amount in cash
and work could be secured across th
The association agreed to raise
the $250 and appointed a committee
for that purpose, and Mr. Howard
agreed to superintend the work and
work up an interest in it along the
line of the road.
The association also went on rec-
ord thoroughly in favor of the Clean
Up Day. Dr. Day made a little talk
concerning it and impressed upon the
merchants the great necessity of mak-
ing the Day a success, and that re-
sults could only be secured by the
earnest and energetic co-operation of
These luncheons of the association
are being made a very pleasant and
beneficial part of the activities of the
Norman Retailer's association, a "get-
ting-together" of the merchants and
talking over the problems.
Oklahoma City. Sept. 12.—One
hundred thousand people are ex-
pected in this city on Friday, Sep-
tember 26th, the occasion of the
visit of President and Mrs. W ilson,
and arrangements are being made so
that every one of them will get a
look at Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, even if
very few of them will get close j
enough to the stage that night to |
hear President Wilson's address.
The arrangements contemplate a
forty-five minute parade over the
city by the presidential party, the
route being as follows:
From the Santa Fe station west on j
Grand to Hudson, south on Hudson
to California, west on California to
Francis, north on Francis to Grand,
east on Grand to Dewey, north on
Dewey to Main, east on Main to
Broadway, north on Broadway to
Thirteen st. west on Th.rtcenth st. to
Robinson, south on Robinson to
First and east on l-irst to the Skir-
vin hotel where the president will be
entertained at a banquet.
No delegation will meet the pres-
idential train before it gets to that
city, Secretary Tumulty having noti-
fied the committee that the train will
be full to repletion and no more
persons can be accomodated upon
it. The committees will therefore
have to content themselves with
meeting the president when he ar-
rives at the city.

emnized at the Pilgrim Congregation-
al church in Oklahoma City at 4:30

with Rev. H. E. Swan officiating- The
groom was Prof. Archibald M. Mc-
Cullough of Norman and the bride

Owing to the ill health of the
bride's mother, the wedding was a
very quiet affair, only a few of the
near relatives and most intimate
friends of the young couple being in
The bride is the only daughter of
her mother, who is a widow. She is
a charming young lady, a graduate of
the Central Normal school at Ed-
mond, Okla., and has for several

of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. McCullough
of Norman, and is a graduate of O.
U. class of 1916. He is engaged in
school work, at Muldrow, Okla ,
where he is city superintendent.
After the ceremony and congratula-
tions the happy young couple board-
ed the 5:45 Frisco train for Muldrow,
where they will be" "at home" to their
many friends during the coming year.
The Transcript joins the numerous
friends of Archie in wishing him and
his bride the greatest of health, hap-
piness and prosperity.
