CHAS. P1TTMAN, OF ENID WILL SPEAK
And Prague will celebrate in a style becoming the state.
The American eagle has made Columbia the brightest gem of
the ocean—the very name is a synonim for greatness, achieve
ment and honor. From the topmost towering heights of the ore
stored Rockies the old national bird spreads his cloud-bathed pin-
ions amid multi floral rainbow lines and frost-wrought splen-
dors. He utters his defy to all the world. From Alaskas snows
and fields of gold to the Honduran gulf where lives the undying
robes of ever green spring; at the same time his pean is heard in
evcrv court of e;:rth, and before his glance China and Japan
quails; and he shakes his tail in the face ol astonished Europe.
