MANY CORDS OF FIRE-WOOD
IN NORMAN READY TO BE CUT
XHK DAILY TRANSCRIPT. NORMAN. OKLA.
Have you been cold lately?
Has your coal bin been empty?
Have you been going to the country
and hauling in fuel?
And did you know that while you
were pc> ibly suffering becausc you
were short of fuel there are between
200 and 300 cords of wood in Norman
—perhaps in your own front yard—
that was ready to be cut and burned?
'Norman citizens have a wood sup-
ply that a majority of them know
nothing about/ said J. H, Craven, un-
iversity landscape gardener, this week.
According to Mr. Craven, many of
Norman's shade trees have died and
their wood is now seasoned and ready
to be cut and burned.
And it would help the civic beauty !
fo the University City too if these j
trees were cleared away and the liv-
ing tree- given more room to spread!
According to the university tree j
man shade trees should be planted at
least twenty-five feet apart and some!
trees should be planted as much as:
thirty feet apart.
Black locust wood, when properly J
seasoned, makes an excellent fire-
wood. Its heat value is little below
that of coal. Then t^ere are many 1
dead mulberry and white ash trees.1
Some of these are already seasoned I
while others are partly dead.
Because of the limited rainfall
this section of Oklahoma shade trees
j should not be planted too closely to
gether as there is not enough mois-
ture in the earth to properly supply
all of them.
"On Asp avenue I know of a fam-
ily that was out of coal and other
fuel, and members of this familv were
actually suffering because of the cold.
They did not know that in their own
front yard was a dead tree, absolutely
useless as far as shade is concerned,
that should have been cleared away
long ago," he continued.
Mr. Craven has offered his services
to citizens of Norman to consult with
them and designate trees that should
be cut down. If residents of a street
or section of the city will cooperate
and ask his advice, he will mark all
trees that should be removed.
With no coal in sight for several
weeks and wood difficult to obtain
'and also expensive when cut and;
hauled from the surrounding country.
Mr. Craven believes that many peo-
ple will utilize their city wood-lot this
winter. He also believes that Nor-
man will be a far more beautiful city
next summe rand in the years to come
because trees have been removed this
Taxes Take Jump
The non-partisan League is in con-
trol of North Dakota. Taxes have
jumped to four and one-half times the
amount oTnnv preceding year. The
farmers pre beginning to wonder if!
state owned elevators, warehouses, |
banks and other socialized enterprises
are worth thi stax bill.
A. Bar'on Hepburn, chairman of the!
advisory board of the Chase National j
Bank, lays emphasis on the point that I
the co-t of production and the cost !
of living have continued increasing!
since the armistice with unabated vig-1
or. "We cannot," he says, "continue'
to reduce th chours of labor and still
supply the quantity of goods which !
the world demands. We cannot con-
tinue to increase the cost of produc-
tion and > tni be able to compete with
other nations in the markets of the
world. These causes will operate to
curtail business. Business men will
not make good they cannot sell at
a profit. That there will be in
the not distant future a curtailment ol
business and a recession in cost and
price1 i :'i-vi nble."

of only two ways to get himself into
a political job at the hands of the peo-

give every Norman citizen an oppor-
tunity to purchase seals.
A prize will be awarded to the Nor-
man boy or girl who sells the largest
number of seals. Mr. Carder had not
decided Saturday just what prize
would be offered, but stated that it
would be something worth working
The university Y. VV. C. A. has had
seals on sale at the bazaar, women's
rest room, administration hall and
have sold more than 200 stamps up to
date. Increased sales are expected
during the coming week Y. VV. offic-

lars worth of seals and was calling for
additional supplies Saturday afternoon

representative at Noble and Lexing-
Lexington and Moore have both re-
ported that their quota will be filled
during the coining week and addition
al supplies of seals will be furnished I

"Norman, not to be beaten by
other Cleveland county towns, will
push her sales during the coming
week in every way possible," Manager
Carder stated late Saturday night.
University City shoppers are asked
to include a few stamps in each pur-
chase made at local stores between
