TERRELL IN DUTCH
State Highway Engineer To Appear
Before Cojnmitte Charged With
Violation of Ethics.
To investigate the charges of un-
professional conduct brought against
Robert C. Terrell, state highwav en-
gineer, by H. C. Smith. 10.1 West
Twenty-fifth street, a civil engineer,
a hearing will be held in Oklahoma
City on September 14 with H. W.
Clausen, chairman of the national
practice committee of the American
Association of Engineers, presiding,
The hearing will be at the Huokins
hotel, H. V. Hinckley, secretary of
the Oklahoma chapter of the asso-
ciation, said last night.
Complaint against Terrell is that
he cancelled a contract held by Smith
for surveys and plans preparatory to
construction of a highway in Garfield
coumy, the contract hav'iiflr i ecn
signed by the commissioners, the far-
mer state engineer and the federal bu-
reau ot bubiic roads. Smith charged al-
soibat Terrell had induccd a former
business associate of his, J. I. Tucker
to underbid Smith on th _• project in
question, and awarded the contract to
him against the wishes of the county
It is charged that Terrell should
be sustained, Hinckley said, he would
be dismissed from membership in the
American Association of Engineers.
The practice of contracting private-
ly for preliminary work in connection
with state highway construction has
been discontinued since Terrell took
office in February, he said yesterday,
and the work is now done by division
engineers of the state highway de-
Henry Wood, state highway com-
missioner said yesterday that the
contract between Smith and the com-
missioners of Garfield county which
. Terrell had annulled, never had been
binding because it never had been
signed by Wood as required by law.
The contract was presented to him for
his signature, he said, but he had re-
fused to sign because the rate of pay-
ment provided for Smith was too high.
WHY I'M FOR SCOTT FERRIS
Comanche, Sept. 3.—What Scott
Ferris, democratic nominee for the
United States senate, says is the best
introductory speech ever made for
him during the recent primary cam-
paign, was delivered at his appearance
here by Mrs. C. B. Terrell.
Mrs. Terrell is noted here for her
personality and her oratorical ability,
and Comanche supporters of Ferris
have suggested that the speech be
used a catecism for democratic vo-
I come before you with not apol-
ogies to offer. I come before you to
introduce to you the speaker of the
hour; a man who has no apologies
to make for what he has already
done: a man who has no explanations
to make for t!;ings he has failed to
Is Handsome, All Right
It has often been said that if wo-
men were ever permitted to vote they
would vote for the handsomer candi-
date. To be candid, I have never
met but three men handsomer than
Mr. Ferris. They were my brother,
niv father and my husband. Since
neither of them are running for a
scat in the United States senate, if
you. my lady friends, vote for the
handsomer man, I am sure you will
make no mistake if Vou vote for Mr
1 am for Mr. Ferris because he
stood for woman suffrage and aided
us in getting suffrage. The time has
long since passed when one American
citizen has the right to stand before
another American citizen and say,
Thou slialt not have a voice in the
government of this nation."
I am for Mr. Ferris because he is i
a clean man morally—because he is
true, honest and upright gentleman—
and that is the kind of a man the wo.
men of the great state of Oklahoma
will support for office.
I am for Mr. Ferris because he al-
ways stood for prohibition. Yes, it
is a dead issue, but it is well to be
ever on the alert.
Is a League Booster.
I atn for Scott Ferris bccause he
stands for the league of nations. We
are living in a civilized age. The
time has ceased to exist when a na-
tion shall go against another nation
in bloody warfare. The league of
nations must be indorsed—we must
have a foundation on which to build.
I am for Mr. Ferris because of his
wonderful war record. In every
war measure we found him standing
four-square; looking out for the in-
terest of all; the low as well as the
high; the weak as well as the strong.
I am for Mr. Ferris because he stood
behind our great hero—the man
called of God to lead the nation at
its crisis; the man akin to the Prince
of Peace—our beloved president.
Therefore, my friends, if you want
peace, progress and prosperity, vote
for Mr. Ferris.
Has Boastful Record
We have his record made in con-
gress. We believe what he has been
he will rtill be, what he has done
he will still do; therefore watch, if
you please, when he is a member of
the United States senate and you will
find that his every effort and every
vote will be on the side of the pepole.
The record he will make in the United
States senate, I assure, my country-
men and women will never be a dis-
appointment to vou. And in after
years the womanhood of Oklahoma
will tell their posterity with enthu-
siastic pride that on the first ballot
cast in a political contest was the
name of the Hon. Scott Ferris.
May the God of our fathers, who
nerved Christopher Columbus to di-
rect his ships toward the land which

NORMAN MUSIC COMPANY
VAN AND SCHENCK
Exclusive Columbia Artists
Here's What They Say:
Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!
"We only want you io know, you know, that we laugh
and sing and also play for Columbia Records the same
way as we laugh and sing and play in life. Take some of
these records home to your wife. This dealer has stacks
he'll let you play. Come in and hear our best today."
1 hose who enjoy Van and Schenck and those who enjoy Harry Fox will
all be satisfied with A-2942. The fascination of the heroine in "All the Boys
Love Mary" gives Van and Schenck a fine opportunity for their "duo-art":
singing and laughter. The coupling, "Way Down Barcelona Way" is one of
those delightful mimicries of operatic singing which always brings down the
house. There is continual fun in bringing out a record which makes your
guests laugh and Fox will never fail in this one.
ALL THE BOYS LOVE MARY
All the boys love Mary
They follow her around
They chase her alt around
Reinie and Jeanie, Babette and Marie,
What's the matter with me?
But all the boys love Mary
And when she laughs you'd think she's
going to cry
But they ain't got what Mary's got
A daddy with a cellar full of you know
And all the boys love Mary coming thro-
WAY DOWN BARCELONA WAY
Sweet was the Floreador

With the springtime came the ring time
So they were married one day
Lived happy after they say

Good Substantial Homes
Both Country and City
ECAUSE of the great scarcity of attractive, homelike apartments and
houses which may be rented, many families are now planning to pur-
chase a home as the solution of this difficult problem.
About the same thing applies to farms. Very few can be rented today.
Tenant farmers are becoming land owners, and nothing tends to develop a
country more than farmers owning their homes. Farm lands are considered
Jne of the safest investments here in Cleveland county, because farming land
has not yet reached its height in price. Land prices will never go back, and
the result is that the investment constantly is becoming more valuable with
the passing of years.
Just think of the opportunities that there are in land in Cleveland county
and adjoining area. Here we are in the center of a rich agricultural country
iatnl as productive as that selling for hundreds of dollars an acre in many
eastern and middlewestern states. The time will be short until this rich farm-
ing land will be selling at prices in other regions. The demand is constantly
growing and increased demand is going to bring top prices.
Giles-Weir Investment Company is pl&ying a most important part in help-
ing develop this region. Many aggressive farmers are realizing the invest-
ment possibilities of agricultural lands. Instead of spending their crop money
for unnecessary pleasures, they are making payments on a farm.
Our purpose is to assist these progressive land owners, for they are among
the "sinew of the country." We are making loans at low rates of interest
for a period of years to farmers showing a desire to become land owners.
Gtles-Weir Investment Company are district managers and inspectors for
two of the leading farm land loan companies. If any farmer will explain his
proposition to us, we can almost assure him that we can assist him in becom-
ing a farm owner. We are assisting several farmers in this region to become
land owners and can give a list of satisfied customers to you.
List your property with us for quick trading. We have been in the real
estate business many years and can find high grade buyers.
