Younger and Harnian showed
themselves men of strong will
and good judgment by refusing

Member Oklahoma Press Association.
The closing days of an exten-
sive educational campaign to ex-
plain to the people the purpose
ami advantages of the bond issue
for roads and bridges, culminates
Saturday evening in a great mass
meeting of Cleveland county citi-
The "pros" and "cons'' should
all be there. If for the plan, come
out to learn more about the ben-
efits to be derived. If against
the bonds, then by all means be
on hand to at least do yourself

ing heard the facts about the
proposition before you place
"Xo" on the ballot.
I leveland county has never
pulled on the back-strap in such
matters. In community progress
and upbuilding, we have batted
one thousand per cent!
Some are against it because of
the cost. Here's a chance to find
out just how much it will cost
Others say it doesn't run by
their property. Mere's a chance
to find out just where the road
does run, and why.
It is not a Norman agitation,
nor some foolish idea of good
The $<>00,000 bond issue repre-
sents a progressive step in the
growth of Cleveland county. It is
by far the most important meas-
ure that voters have ever consid-
ered. Its failure to pass will be a
blow to our advancement, a stain
upon the county, and a source of
shame to us all.
Therefore: THINK AND IN-
VESTIGATE BEFORE YOU
THE RIGHT ATTITUDE
Clarence Younger and A. M.
llarman, prisoners in the county'
jail, were offered an opportunity
to escape Monday morning but
told the two escaping prisoners:
' \\ e II stick here and wait for our
\\ bile it took a certain amount
of courage to crawl through the
jail window to liberty and become
a fugitive from justice, it re-
quired a great deal more moral
courage to turn down the beck-
oning invitation to freedom.
Such a course is commendable.
To be sure, the jail breakers have
only made their paths harder. In
these days it is mighty hard to
put anything over on "the law"
•—and get by with it.
But just the same there was a
strong temptation, the open win-
dow, the train coming through

Plans for University of Oklaho-
ma's broadcasting by radio to every ,
part of Oklahoma and adjoining
states, by Maurice Prescott, Norman I
electrical expert, were announced to
day by O. W. Walters, assistant
professor of electrical engineering at
Prescott, a junior in the school of
electrical engineering, is one of the'
best radio operators in the state. H:
has had several years of experience
with wireless, ami is a rapid sender.
Sending Apparatus Good
Complete radio outfit has not yet ,
been installed here, although the
university sending apparatus is as
good as can be found anywhere, ac- j
cording to Walters. Plans are not
yet completed as to the exact type
of sending apparatus to be pur-
Fducational addresses by college
professors. musical programs by i
student entertainers, student debates,
and university news in general will
all be broadcasted over the state and 1
to Texas. Arkansas. Kansas and
other states this winter.
\\ alters says that the completion
ot the university's radio program >
will be one of the greatest things j
that ever came to Soonerlatid.
Announcement of football, base-
ball and basketball results, play by
iMflY/'Wi'll be possible. Thus O. I'.'s
athletics will become famous among
nuAiy states, Walters points out.
Walters has just returned from a
tour of inspection among radio sta
tions in various parts o the country.
Visited WOB Station
At Kansas City he visited WOB,
the station of the Kansas City Star.
It was a wonderful plant, he de-
clared,* but has not proven as succes-
•ul as some others have.
At Chicago, he visited what is
probably the world's most perect
long-distance radio station, KYW,
Westinghou8r plant, in the Com-
mon wealth-Edison building.
Also Musical Programs
ttig musical programs, including
band and grand operas, are sent out
daily by this station. Last-minute
reports from the stock exchange an 1
boards of trade are sent out every
thirty minute. he said. KYW oc-
cupies six rooms in the Common-
wealth building, and is now sending
out to a radius of 500 miles It vviil
send further, this fall, when tin
static difficulties do not interfere.
Walters says Norman radio fans can
hear from this Chicago station with
ease this winter.
In Norman at present there are
three regular sending sets, Bi 1
Greene, the university's and Maurice
1'rescott's. Several amateurs are
also operating small sending sets
which extend the distance of the
100 Receiving Sets Here
I here are about 100 receiving sets
here however, according to Walters.
Some of these are on a small scale,
with a capacity of only a few miles
but some are long-distance sets,
such as the Pioneer Pharmacy,
Lindsay's drug store, the university
set and Prescott's.
"Radio is a craze right n nv.M he
said. ' And in a couple of years the
excitem lit over this modern mystery
will die down.
"1 believe, however, that radio lias
a distinct purpose and a usefulness
such that it will always be with us.
Cannot Be Duplicated
"In market reports, weather re
ports, and government information.
;t cannot be duplicated. While 1
think that it is limited, because
static interferes so much about four
months out of the year, yet it is a
wonderful invention that is here to
Walters is busy now getting the
university radio station in readiness
for the opening of school.
