CLEVELAND TEST AGAIN
UNDER WAY, WARREN SAYS
'iril'ing on the well being put down
fourteen miles southeast of Norman
by the Cleveland County Develop-
ment company was resumed the mid-
dle of the week, according to S. I.
It was thought that casing which
collapsed two weeks ago and had to
be pulled would be back in place
ready for deepening the hole again
by Monday or Tuesday of the past
week. The job took longer than es-
However, things are back in shape
and going good now, he reported.
It was love at first sight. " She
first visited the University of Okla-
homa several summers ago with the !
Ben Greet players. During her pro- i
icsional visit to the Sooner campus !
she made many friends and the mem-
ory of the Oklahoma school lingered
So Miss Lila-Dell Frost came to
Norman from her Atlanta, Ga., home
and enrolled for the 1920 summer ;
session. She is still loyal to her ,
southern home where her father,
Johathan B. First, who :for many
years was director of activities of the'
Modern Woodmen in the south, still j
Miss Frost, in addition to her work
with the Ben Greet players also act-
ed for three seasons with Robert
Mantell at the time that acor was in
his glory. She played Shakespearian
roles and understudied Mrs. Mantel.
.During the 1920 summer session Miss

TWO LOCAL TEACHERS
Large Majority Are Attending Uni-
versity Summer Session, Faulkner
Says; Get 14 Percent Raise.
"Out of thirty-six teachers in the
Norman public schools last year, ele-
ven or twelve are not returning this
fall, although only two or three of
those who are leaving are breaking
lose from school work," said A. S.
Faulkner, city superintendent. "Of
those that are leaving, outside of two
or three, all of them expect to con-
tinue their work for degrees in the
University of Oklahoma "
All of the Norman teachers will re-
ceive a rjiise of approximately 14
percent starting in September—the
school board would have granted a
higher raise if it had been possible,
Faulkner explains. However, under
existing laws the Norman school dis-
trict is taxed as heavily as the law
will allow. Fifteen mills on the dol-
lar is now being collected for city
Norman city school teachers are ex-
pecting the six-mill statewide school
levy to pass and for that reason are
willing to remain another year, liv-
ing in hopes that they will receive a
further increase.Faulkner points out.
■ Faulkner knows of only two of his
! force who have quit the profession.
' One man is planning on entering the
drug business—he is a pharmaceuti-
cal graduate. The superintendent
does not know what line of business
the other former teacjier expects to
j "A large majority of my teachers
j accompanied rue from the classroom
| out to the state university for work
in the 1920 summer session." Faulk-
ner replied when asked where his force
was spending the summer. "Some are
reviewing courses they are to teach
this fall, but a large majority of them
are taking work that will count to-
ward either a bachelor or a master
: of arts degree."
GATER SAYS WEEDS
j MUST BE CUT SOON
Declares City Will Do the Work At
| A 25 Percent Profit; Fuss Up
"Monday is clean-up day. Cut the
j weeds, clip the grass, and get rid of
' tin cans on Monday or the next day
thereafter that you have a spare min-
i That was the exhortation or W. R.
Gater, city manager, in planning the
work of "fussing up Norman" for the
visitors who will be here during the
celebration to be put on by "our
city" July 5.
''Weed campaign week must be ob-
served by all in order to present a
real live looking city. If the people
do not cut their weeds, an employe of
the city will do so at the property
owner's cost. If this charge is not
settled within thirty days at the of-
fice of the city clerk, the account will
be turned over to the county treasur-
er and charged against their land
Work that is done by the city will
be 25 percent over the ac-
tual cost, in accordance with the city
ordinances Gater pointed out.
To show the city of Norman is not
remiss in this clean up campaign
while urging citizens to tidy their
premises, the manager, stated that a
man had been cutting weeds from lit-
tle-used streets the past week.
W ork is progressing nicely on the
new home of Dr. and Mrs. D. W.
Griffin, next to the Edwards place
on University boulevard. Painters
have been busy this week on apply-
ing a little coloring, and the house
will soon be ready for occupancy.
