SENT OUT OF TOWN
"Old-Timer" of Oklahoma City Was
Here But Did Not Have
A woman of Oklahoma City who I
has frequently visited this town and
has a "100 fine hanging over her for
transporting, dropped into town
again Friday and was promptly taken
in charge by Chief Sanderson.
She had been bringing liquor into
Norman for one or two of the "old-
timers," but this time did not have
She begged off so pitifully, promis-
ing to leave at once and never come
back, that Municipal ludge I.ewis al-
lowed her to go. .
It is the ambition of Judge Lewis
and Chief Sanderson to make Norman
the cleanest little city in the state,
and "undesirables" are fast finding
that fact out.
Many of these so-called "sports

Chief Sanderson and Judge Lewis
are largely responsible for this rep-

have worked always with the end in
view that Norman will be forever
cleared of all such -classes of people,
and they are rapidly approaching
Stays on Farm Eight

he again heard the whistle of a
train. He did not come to town
during that time.
Considering that Wilson drove a
fire team eight years previous to
taking up farming, that is some
Wilson was driver of the Purcell
fire department when that or-
ganization established a wirld s
record in the "bunk-out" race.

KNIGHTS TEMPLAR IS
Norman Comniandery No. 38,

pleasant meeting at Masonic Temple
