Every citizen of Oklahoma who is registered and entitled to
vote should go to the polls tomorrow and cast his ballot. This elec-
t'.on'will be more important than any election in years. It is clear-
ly a matter of following the dictates of your conscience.
The league of nations is the chief issue of the campaign, made
so by the republican party in announcing its platform. Governor
Cox, democratic nominee, has expressed his stand as irrevocable
in favor of the league as drafted, with such reservations an will
clarify the meaning. Senator Harding, republican nominee, : ay
that rejection is his desire and that a new league would be created.

SHALL WE HAVE BETTER SCHOOLS?
Tomorrow at the polls it will be decided whether the blessings
of education shall be extended to every child in • )klah;:ni;i, or
whether the be-t yhall continue to be reserved for Oklahoma City,
Tulsa. Muskogee, and other sections of the .state having high v al-
uation of proptrey.
Shtfe Question 109 should receive the vote of every citizen of
Norman and Cleveland county, becau:. • it provides an increase of
S8.G20 for the schools of Norm'in and $22,351 for the county with-
out adding to the tax now paid by property owners, but because it
is right that the state should guarantee a chance for a good ele-
mentary education to all of the children within its borders.
Our opponent all sa\ that they favor state aid for schools but
that they oppose the amendment proposed by the Oklahoma Edu-
cational Association to provide this aid. If they are sincere why
do they not initiate another me... are that is to their liking? The
fact is" that State Question 100 w ill be passed or the present un-
equal distribution of ect itional opportunity will continue. No
method of providing state aid for schools will ever be satisfactory

tions. and to those wealthy communities who believe in getting all

Norman's fate is at the hands of the city voters tomorrow.
Her progress hangs in the suspense awaiting ihe verdict of her
citizens. They can give her the means to progress or they can re-
tard her for years to come.
Two bond issues will be voted upon. One of these is for the
purpose of extending the waier works system and the other for
repairing and extending the unitary sewer system. Both are im-
portant assets to any city.
For more than a year, ever since Norman began her remark-
able growth which has attracied attention all over Ihe southw 'St.
