SUIT IS FILED BY
M'CAU. FOR LEASE
ON THEATRE HOUSE
PETITION DEVELOPS FACT
THAT MRS. FLOOD HAS RE-
MARRIED TO OIL MAN
Suit was filed in district court yes-
terday by the S. K. McCall company,
through Judge W. L. Eagleton, its
attorney, against Mrs. Nannie J.
Greenwald, Ray C. Berry, Robert C.
Berry and Arthur Lewis, to enforce
the provisions of ?. certain lease or
contract entered into by Mrs. Green-
wald (formerly Flood) and the com-
pany last June, by which the com-
pany was to secure the building now
occupied by the University theatre
and add it to their present store
It is alleged that the contract was
fully entered into between Mrs.
Greenwald and the company, but
later Ray C. Berry went to the home
of the owner and induced her to re-
pudiate the lease and enter into one
with him for a term of five years.
The case is expected to come up
for adjudication at the next term of
district court, the company still be-
ing anxious to secure the building.

ed the fact that Mrs. Flood has re-
married, an incident not generally
known in Norman. She was the
widow of Mr. Frank Flood, well
known carpenter and contractor
here for many years, and after her
husband's death removed to Drum-

Mr. Wm. Barr was able to be out
again Saturday after a two weeks'
siege in bed, caused by an accident
that almost paralyzed him. He was
fixing up a clothes line for Mrs. Barr
when the prop fell and hit him in
such a tender place on his spine that
he was knocked to the ground and
had to be carried to the house and to
his bed, where he lay for several
days unable to turn his body. He is
recovering, but still feels the effects
of the accident. His experience
should be a warning to husbands to
allow their wives to fix up their

less than grippe.

and the death rates arc no higher
than the old and more familiar
