CITY STANDPIPE IS
GIVEN CLEANING OUT
Streets To Be Graded Beginning To-
morrow, Gater Says; States Po-

Was your water pressure low for a
short while this morning?
It was occasioned by cleaning house
at the water works. The standpipe j
was drained and washed out with
clean water and thoroughly. The job |
took three men about that many hours
to cleanse it before refilling, Mana-
ger W. R. Gater explained.
Your pressure should not heve been
low nearly that long, not more than
fifteen minutes, however, for water
pumps were put on the mains direct
and started running to keep it as high
as usual. A danger of puttin on too
great pressure at once is taht of over-
estimating th estrength of mains and
causing them to burst.

The casing is here ready to be identified. And the boys are

Streets 011 which paving is'held up
for lack of cement will not be touched
by the city grader ekcept in case of
dire necessity, because that would be
constued a violation of contract. Con-
tractors must keep them up.
It is understood that citizens are
raising objections to having their
streets blocked and littered up as ;
much as tin y are since there is chance
of t .i ir remaining that way indefi-

able According to Wann
Anyone wanting work or wanting
work done may call the Y. M. C. A.
office at the university, announced
Grady Wann who has charge of em-
ployment bureau there.
Rooms and roomers who want them
may be brought together by the same
office it is further announced.
This statement was made for fear
that people had concluded the univer-
s'ty Y. M. information employmen
service was not to be had this summer.
Several men are on the waiting list

ces Were Good.
C. W. Vaughn's Pirates lost to
Jack Carder's Giants 7 to 0 in yester-
day's duel at -City park. Inability to
hit in pinches and opening up in the
field and letting in runners caused
the downfall of the buccaneer men.
The large boys made every hit
count and got six of them while the
Pirates were gathering four, accord-
ing to the official scorer.
The Vaughn men started off with
two runs in the frist frame, expecting
to set a lead hard to beat, but the
Giants came up in their half and
drove in three. The Pirates scored
three more in the third and one in the
fifth, while the Giants put over one
in the ethird and fourth and a couple
in the fifth.

SEWER AND WATER LINE EX-
TENSIONS ARE DISCUSSED
Sewer and water line extensions
were discussed and salaries of all city-
employees as submitted in next year's
budget were cut about IS percent in
the city commissioners' meet last
night at the City hall, according to
W. R. Gater, Norman manager. Re-
port 011 extension work by an Okla-
homa City expert was heard.
Extensions to Norman water and
sewer systems are proposed in the
Classen-Miller addition in the south-
cast. in University Homebuilders' ad-
dition just west of the campus, and
enlargement of the big drain carrying
sewage toward the river on the south-
west. A bond issue will likely be
necessary to make these needed ex-
tensions, was Gater's opinion.
Cutting the estimated salary budget
has caused a deal of dissatisfaction
among N'ornian city employees.
Raised in Budget.
' I raised their salaries in the bud-
get 25 per cent over last year's. That
give* barely a fair living wage and is
• ot excessive. I don't blame them
for being dissatisfied with having
salarii s cut down about 15 percent
again," asserted Gater.
