' Will Norman people adopt the
daylight saving plan?" is the ques-
tion now being considered and dis-
cussed by representative business
The plan was in operation with a
measure of success in 1919. That it
will be adopted again this year is
doubtful, as the rural districts do not
favor the suggestion, city officials re-
It was pointed out by several busi-
ness men that confusion is likely to
arise if the city adopts the plan while
tlie rural districts continue oil the old
Indole. If the plan is made effective
ii Norman, it must be done by means
of a city ordinance.
The question so far has merely
been suggested to the city commis-
sioners. Mo official discussion has

CHIEF BIG JIM S TILL. CONTROLS
BAND OF SHAWNEE INDIANS AND
WON'T LET 'EM ATTEND SCHOOL
The tlir^c hundred Shawiu- - In-
dians, who live in the southeast part
of Cleveland county and the south-
west part of Pottawatomie county
arc causing the Indian office consid-
erable trouble by their persistent re-
fusal to send their children to school,
according to M. W. Thomas, day
school inspector from the Shawnee
office, who was in Norman yester-
A boarding school has been main-
tained until recently for the J ndian
children at Shawnee, hut lince its
abandonment there is no recourse
but to send them to the public schols.
These Indians are citizens and
come under the provision of tin- Ok-
lahoma law which says that children
between the ages of six. and eighteen,
shall attend school two-thirds of the
term in the district in which they
They persistently refuse to have
anything to do with the white men
or their customs, according to Thom-
as. This band is controlled by Chief
Bit: Jim, who still clings to his old
liai)its and rules his little community
with an iron liana.
"My children can't go to school,"
lie said, "and 1 won't advi>e any of
the others to send their children to
Failing in his efforts to persuade
the tribesmen to adopt civilized hab-
its, Thomas is sec kin i the aid of the
state law to force thl young Indians
to get ail education. He thinks that
the prospect of a tiiif or a jail sen-
tence will induce the bucks to see
the light and forsake their ways. I
These Indians are one ol the two'
surviving hands of the old Shawnee i
tribe. I he other group, known as
the White Turkey band, live north-!
cast of Shawnee. The llig Jim band
was given their allotment in Cleve-1
land county on their own preference,
which was based 011 the abundance of
the game that it then cotaincd.
Since they moved there the game 1
has all been killed off, the timber cut
away and they arc left to support
themselves as best they can. In
*l>ite of this they arc practically self
supporting, although their land is
perhaps the poorest in the county.
They <1 o some makes hift fanning and
a-e the reat of their land.
They still make their own pottery
and other utensils and arc as inde-
pendent and isolated from the whites
as they can manage to be. Chief Big
Jim calls up and scolds any member
his tribe who is guilty of going to
a cliurcli or calling a doctor. He
will have nothing to do with the
whites if he can keep from it and
pays no attention whatever to the of-
fers of aid from the Indian office.
If final efforts to use persuasion
fail he will probably be held ac-
countable under the state law for the
failure of the children of his band to
comply with school requirements,

Up By Pastors From Over Okla-
homa; Aszman Will Attend.

per in every home.
Ministerial support—a living salary
Every-Member canvass—much from

Much Interest Is Being Shown in
Farmers Union and Cleveland
County Will Organize.
John A. Simpson, president of the
Farmers Union of Oklahoma, who ad-
dressed a meeting of the county farm-
ers at the courthouse yesterday after-
noon, left at 44 o'clock today tor Ma-
guire, where he will address a gath-
ering f the farmers of that neighbor,
Simpson was brought here at the
instigation of County Agent L. E.
Bogan and others interested, and an
attempt will be made to organize units
of the farmers union in the various
communities of Cleveland county.
W ith better co-operation and or-
ganization effected by such unions, a
better market for the farmer's pro-
duce is obtained, Simpson said yester-
day in talking to the farmers. He
cited numerous instances where farm-
ers of other counties had benefitted
greatly from such organizations.
Considerable interest has been
shown by the farmers of this county,
immediately prececding this week's
program and upon other visits Simp-
son has made to Cleveland. This in-
terest will tend to an early organiza-
tion of the farmers, both Simpson and
Bol- an belieev.

NOTE: We will show this wonderful production, which costs us three, times., the
amount of the usual picture, at the regular prices of 10c and 20c. Seldom is a picture
of this magnitude shown outside the larger cities. By chance alone was it possible
for us to get this picture, and it was too good to let get by—you'll like it, and it'a
our treat to you at 10c and 20c.
Don't fail to see this wonderful picture, where shrewd and radi-
ant women challenge the game of conquest; where men of wealth
barter gold for wives whose entrance fees of gowns and social rank
are bought with suitor's gifts pawned for cash. Where the richest
buyer bids highest. A game in which women find the greater prize
for which they pay, and pay with a prize that the public derides with
scorn and sneers.
