Announcement has been made by

it is not the policy of the bureau
to attempt to dissuade'ex-service men
or women from purchasing -any par-
ticular form of government conver-

In emphasizing the general recog-
nition of their exceptional value to
former service men and women, Pres-
ident Fred A llowland of the Nat-
ional Life Insurance company of
Montpclier. Vt., in the course of an
address to the March meeting of the
Commanders of the American Leg-
ion post of the State of Vermont,
made the following statement from
the viewpoint of an official of t
life insurance company.
Can Not Realize.
"Can you imagine what would
happen if all the employeess in the
three hundred life insurance com-
panies of America were to draw into
one department and were required to
lininister the tremendous work that
the bureau of War Risk Insurance
lias had to do in Washington? In
iew of the fact that it wrote forty
billion dollars worth of insurance
v ithin a few months, necessarily
there were mistakes—the contrary
would have been impossible.
No executive of any life insurance
ompany hesitates to recommend, i
the most emphatic terms, that the
government insurance is a- good
thing. You cannot expect the reg-
ular old line insurance companies
to furnish insurance at the same rate
the government does. The gov-
ernment premium does not carry
administration expense That is
borne by the taxpayer There is no
ta\. there is no labor expense. All
f this i«; borne by the taxpayer.
Keep it Up.
"So in the last analysis there is
very reason and every life insurance
agent will tell you there is every rea-
son, why you should hang on to your
government insurance. It is the
heapest, has the most substantial
hacking, the treasury of the United
States itself, and will be made the
The bureau offers six different
policies which are the pest policies
in .the ijiuted States.

THIRTY-ONE YEARS AGO A
WONDER-STATE WAS BORN
Five minutes to noon, and the >un \va> blazing down. Like
a mighty tide in leash, thousands swirl about a line two-hundreds
Over that line none step! For the grim-faced regulars, in
dusty blue, pace to and fro, rifles carried as a hunter carries a rifle.
Two minutes to noon. Men nervously tighten girths already oft-
tightened, and swing into their saddles. Chafing horses, hitched to
every sort of queer vehicle, foam and dance and strain at the reins.
Here are two or three mounted <>n queer, low bicycles, each
wheel of the same size—the new "safety," never before seen in this
part of the world. Yonder are lads stripped to athletes' trim, spik-
ed shoes dug into the sod.
NOON! 1 he riiles crack for signal, and the horde sweeps for-
ward in a cloud of dust, shouting, screaming, cursing, muttering
prayer?. The Indian territory has become a white man's country
Oklahoma is born. It is the twenty- sec
f April. 18X0.
Before nightfall, a breatht'less few have
rigged up tents within a few rods of where
these words are written in April 1920.
Many indeed of the adventurers who
made that mighty rush for the new, rich
lands of the Territory are living among us
today. Honor them. They made your
Many are passed. Yet they too helped
to build the foundations of ytior metrop-
olis. Forget them not. They too served.
The Norman Transcipt was founded in
June by Mr. Ed. P. Ingle. Today marks
the eighth birthday of the Daily Transcript.
And the city's first newspaper has served.
Yet it is the same paper. In every endur-
ing sense it is the same paper.
For as it began, with a plain creed oi
service for plain people, committed to
arduous toil to build a mighty common-
wealth, so it -continues—plainly, simply,
uihout arrogance, with no boastfulness-—
merely serving, as ably and as thoroughly
as it can serve.
I lie paper has struggled upward with the
cit\. Sometimes the way loomed dark;
there were gloomy moments; three terrific
fianics a little war, and the world s Great-
est war, tested the metal of the city's men
anil the paper's stability.
\either wavered. Neither flinched. Look
a ' nind you and behold the city—thirty-one
wars old, and where is its equal!'
Men ot '80, men of today—and your wo-
menkiud, quite as much as yourselves—you
have built well; you are building well.
May we be here helping you to so build,
thirty-one years from now.
