PRICK FIVE CENTS
OF THE M. E. BUILDING
I UNIVERSITY INFIRMARY
BIG AID TO STUDENTS
In the mention in Sunday's issue of
Transcupt of the purchase by the
Methodist church of ten lots on the
corner of Linn street and Webster
avenue for the site of a new church
The university infirmary has been
■ without patients for only one hour
since the hospital opened, it was an-
nounced Saturday. There are three
patients in the infirmary now. Dur-
ing one week of October the list of

ent building being that it is entirely
inadequate to accommodate the stead-
ily increasing membership and con-
gregation. The present church edi-
fice is one of the best and most sub-
stantially built in Norman, in every
way modern and up-to-date, but just
Either it would have to be added
to or a new edifice built.
The new site secured is right in
the center of the University part of
town and will give the denomination
a plot of ground 250 by 140 feet. The
Transcript is told by one of the lead-
ing members that it will probably be
late in 1920 before work is com-
menced on the new edifice, as the de-
nomination expects to build at Still-
water before commencing here, the
need of a good church building there
being very much greater than at Nor-
man. The member also stated that
the denomination contemplated great
things for Norman, and that before
Sunny side hospital, DeBarr avenue,
has had very little except surgical
cases. Almost all of the work of this
hospital is devoted to operative cases.
MUST GET OUT AND
1 What N'orman citizens will have to
■ do in the very near future is to get a
crosscut saw and put Tom and Iiarry
at one end of it and Ruth and Rachel
at the other and get out into the tim-
bered district of the county and go
to cutting wood.
That is the unanimous opinion of
the coal dealers of Norman, who seem
certain that there will be no more
coal here for domestic consumption
until about the 1st of April—or very
little, at most—even if the miners
should get into the mines at once;
and there seems little probability of
them doing so very soon.
There is plenty of wood in Cleve-
land county- All it needs is to get
out and cut it and have it brought to
it got through would probably invest town, and that will have to be done
more than $250,000 in church proper- j if the suffering is kept down to the
minimum. Very little wood is being
brought in so far. The writer notic-
Asked about the proposed consoli-
en one load on Saturday. It was a
dation of the Norman M. E. Church, double-wagon box of eighteen-inch
South, and the Methodist Episcopal i wood and was sold for $6.00. A cord
church, this member stated there was! four-foot wood was ordered from
little probability of it; that the lead-
ers of both denominations did not
seem to be very favorably impressed
with the idea.
Meet With Wholesalers in Oklahoma City
Take Up the Matter of Scarcity of Paper-
ALL NEWSPAPERS MUST CUT SIZE
Transcript Forced to Cut to Four Pages, Six-column, with Eight
Pages on Sunday—Every Advertiser Will Be Given
His Proportion of Space.
That many of the newspapers of Oklahoma will have to sus-
pend publication entirely or at least miss issues, before January 1st
unless there is an immediate relief from the shortage of print paper,
was the consensus of publishers of many daily papers of Oklahoma,
who met with wholesale paper dealers in Oklahoma City on Satur-
day. The wholesalers declared it was impossible to supply the nec-
essary paper to allow publishers to continue to issue papers of the
same size as at present, and impressed upon them the necessity of
curtailing the size and conserving in every way possible.
As a means of combatting the situation, the publishers and
wholesalers, decided that it will be necessary to make considerable
increases in advertising anil subscription rates in order to meet the
increased cost of what paper can be obtained. An advertising rate
of at least 20 cents per 1,000 circulation and subscription rate of at
least 15 cents a week for 6-day papers was agreed upon.
The Transcript is compelled to reduce its size to a six-column,
4-page paper, with eight pages on Sunday, and the paper on which
it is doing it is costing it front three to four times what it formerly
cost—and is hard to get at any price. It will not increase its sub-
scription price, which remains at 10 cents per week, and by setting
its news matter in smaller type, will endeavor to give subscribers as
good service as in the past, but is compelled to put a higher rate
on advertising to meet the exigency of the occasion. Every adver-
tiser will be awarded his propertionate amount of space and be
given as good service in the matter of display as possible.
The general manager of the Transcript, Mr. Parham, together
with our advertising manager, Mr. Tucker E. Miller, will take up
the matter with advertisers and fully explain the situation.
It is a condition that confronts us and no mere theory, and it
is our desire to deal with it with fairness to all concerned.
DID YOU GET ONE
OF THESE TURKEYS?
A day or two ago a turkey raiser
brought ill a load of fowls to the
poultr\ house of F. B. Jones, and
when he unloaded them found
twelve of them dead in the wagon,
having been smothered. He put the
wagon in one of the yards for the
night, and when he went to get it the
next morning, found all the dead
turkeys gone. Some razooper had
collared them during the night.
Mr. Jones is just wondering wheth-
er the thief has peddled them over
town and whether some of our peo-
ple are figuring on having a Thanks-
giving feast off one of these smoth-
When T. J. Hinshaw went to the
United Sales store on Sunday morn-
ing he found that some one had ob-
tained entrance into it through the
hack window and stolen about $100
worth of shoes, silk, a couple of hats
and other desirable goods- That's
all that has been missed to date, but
undoubtedly they got other goods.
They evidently knew what they
wanted and where to look for them.
No clue to the thieves.

than 1000 pounds can be sold to any
one party. This dealer has two more
cars coming, ordered before the first
of November, that he expects to get,
and that will be all for several months,
he fears, for domestic use. It is said
the town's waterworks has sufficient
to last until February, and that the
University and Sanitarium have a
goodly supply on hand, but the most
of the other establishments have al-
lowed their supply to run down,
One cord of wood is estimated to
be equal to a ton of coal for heating
purposes, and Norman on a cold day
will use 200 tons—so it can be readily
seen what we are up against.
The Chamber of Commerce, Retail-
ers' association, Rotary club and oth-
er organizations should take up this
matter at once and endeavor to get a
supply of wood into our city- We are
going to need it just as sure as the
sun rises and sets, and we ought not
to wait until the last minute.
