"SANDWICH GIRL" APPEALS •*

We are all familiar with the «&d
ttme "sandwich" man who advertised
hit employer's wares with signs oar
i ied fore and aft. But here iu a 192"
innovation the "sandwich" girl.
Wh«n Mrs. Roy Graham, a member
of Oklahoma City's younger society

among Europe's starving war victims,
she volunteered her services to the

idea of the "sandwich" sign. Gov. J.

Mrs. Graham, autographed the Jewish I
relief poster, and the young lady began
doing her "bit" by displaying the ap

WORD OF THANKS
We desire to extend our sincere
thanks to the friends who are in t
members of the Presbyterian church
in Norman, for their kindness in
agreeing to furnish entertainment
for the delegates to the Oklahoma
Presbytery, which has just closed.
While we did not have to take ad-
vantage of the hpfcjpitality offered,
yet it is just as much appreciated as
if we had. We found that there
were not so many in attendance as
we thought, there would be, and
members of the church were anx-
ious and willing to furnish the beds
and meals needed, and therefore we
did not have to call upon our friends
outside of our church.
l he fact, however, that the enter-
tainment was offered assured us
that even a much larger crowd could
have been properly looked after
Accept our thanks, with the aiiu-
rancc that if it ever becomes so we
can help you we certainly will take
pleasure in doing so.

One On The City Editor
A certain eastern city editor had
a notice above his desk: "Accuracy!
Accuracy! Accuracy!". This he al-
ways pointed out to new reporters.
One day the youngest cub came
in with his report of a public meet-
ing. The eagle-eyed city editor read:
"Three thousand, nine hundred and
ninety-nine eyes were fixed on the
"Here, what do you mean by such
stuff.'" wrathfully asked the C. E.
"That's accuracy, sir. There was
a one-eyed man there."
