REGRET AFTER HAVING BOOSTED
Oklahoma City combination papers certainly are the

In fact, about anything which seems to be pointed toward
an endeavor to "bilk" the people of the state.
Occassionally these combination papers see that the
thing has gone too far and are forced to come out in the
open and. after having boosted through the news col-

people to come forth frtely with their coin, take hack all

RACE EVENTS ARE UNSATISFACTORY.
The Oklahoman has been printing "race selec-
tions" daily pertaining to the current racing events
at the State Fair Grounds, but It will hereafter de-
cline to promote the race meeting in this manner
until convinced that the race officials are doing
everything in their powtr to effect meritorious track
There is no little complaint relative to the events
of the post week and it is alleged that well known
animals are participating in the races without ex-
hibiting a close approximation even of their record
form. The public is not satisfied with the claims
of fouling which are offered by the Jockeys and state-
ments fr. m the officials that "the *natter will be In-
vestigated" do not restore confidence.
Ctrtalnly there should be no betting on the race
events at the Fair Grounds track.
Just think of the proposition.
The Oklahoman was In a position to know just what
the frame-up was. But rather than take a stand, that
publication came out at the eleventh hour and. after
warning the people that the "Racing Events Are Un-
satisfactory." and causes a sweet smelling thought with
the dear little statement. "Certainly there should be no
betting on the race events nt the Fair Grounds tracks."
Meaning, no doubt, that all the betting should be done
in the gambling houses up in the city.
Gambling houses which must exist, or the Times. th*.
companion piece of the Oklahoman, is very badly mis-
Ilut—let's go a little farther—
I.et us take up a htraln of music fr «?n the Times,
which boosted. In many Issues, a prize fight which the
Times must have known would be a fake and which
would not have had a corporal's guard In attendance had
not the Oklahoma City comblnatlori papers boosted and
boosted and guaranteed the "real thing."
Now, let's see what the Times has to say regarding
thlB fake, the day after. Here is an editorial taken from
tht Times June 23:
DAVE PORTEOUS. THE THOUGHTFUL.
How very thoughtful of Dave Porteous to stop
that brutal prize fight In the middle of the fifth
How solicitous was William Gulney, promoter of
the fight, lest the law might be fractured and Count-
ty Attorney Reardon would out of loyalty to duty,
straddle the ropes, plunge into the ring and toss the
fighters out through the roof.
Dave Porteous always was thoughtful. Even In
bovliood ht was noted for his power In stopping
fights among children—and In his capacity as ref-
eree he doubtless estimated the Nelson-CI If ford af-
fair as little more than a school hoy scrimmage.
Several hundred Oklahoma Cltlans paid good
coin to see Nelson and Clifford go round and round,
and some of Jhem today would probably be willing
to swap their experience for the return of the
money they thus Invested. However, up to a late
hour this afternoon, no refund had been made, and
the general impression throughout the city Is that
there will be no refund.
A whole lot more might be said about the horri-
ble affray between Nelson and Clifford-
Really wasn't Dave PorteoUe thoughtfully ■hu-
It's really a wonder that th^ HliVnane Society
didn't grab him before he hurried away on a four
o'clock train this morning, and pin a nudal on him.
It is evident that the Imes had an after thought which, a "re "farm
if it had not been after, would hav saved many of its netted
readers much money and. Instead of assisting In tearing slngie year
down Its own reputation, would have placed the Times'
right before the people.
And now that the combination papers have had to
confess that they assisted in working up crowds and at-
tracting attention to the fake prize fight and the much
worse than fake rices. Is It not time for the people of th.-
state to commence to grasp the idea that about all th.
boom, boosting and Graft City ideas are made up of
the same kind of stuff?
Founded on the Hogopolls principal to firasp all the
state has and trade back nothing—not even good will.

My grief! for the days by an* done.
When I was a young girl, straight and
Co ti In' alone at set o' sun
Up the hi*h hill road from Cushenda!!,
I thought the miles no hardship then.
Nor the long road weary to my feet—
For the thrushes sang in the cool, deep

My luad with many a thought was
An* many a dream as I never told;
My heart would lift at a wee bird s song
Or at seeing a whin-bush crowned with
An" alway rd look back at the sky
Or the turn o' the road shut out the
Of the long waves curlin' Into the bay.
An breakjn* In foam where the sands
was married young on a dacent man!
As many would call a prudent choice.
But he never could hear how the rtver

Nor thought to see on the bay's blue
A ship with yellow Kails unfurled.

Over the brim of the heavir.' world.
The hill seems weary now to my feet,

successful idea in advertising
All advertising Is good but some is
better—with due apologies to antiquity.
The best advertising, says the New
York Evening Mall, is like an express
It gets up speed quickly, eats up fuel
and is hard on rolling stock. Its im-
portance 4,-uins for it the right of way
at once, and woe betide any lesser ob-
stacle which tries to block the wuy. it
is expensive to run. but has a definite
thing to do within a certain time and
This Is the kind of publicity which re-
sults from being interested in one's own
product, a thorough belief «n advertis-
ing, a knowledge of the consumer's pos-
sllbllties and a readiness to take ad-
Much advertising Is run like a suburb-
an local railroad. Its stops and starts
are regulated by what the competing
line is doing—not by any direct study of
This is a variety of publicity which re-
sults from fear of competition solely and
not from any belief In the value ot ad-
\antage of every practicable Idea pre-
vertisfrig per se or from any knowledge
If Us effects upon the advertiser's indi-
vidual buying public.
Stiil another, advertising moves 'ike a
freight train. Heavily loaded, clumsily
built, as far as looks go, It travels slowly
and is continually backing and filling
and getting sidetracked.
This is the kind of spasmodic pub-
licity which results from belief In ad-
vertising combined with the Idea that the
advertiser must do It all himself. Now
you see his advertisement because ho
thinks he has a smart idea (and often he
has), or some business condtlon has
forced him Into the bright light Now
you don't see it, because he Is busy about
something else and cannot attenu to it.
Of course he wonders why his business
does no grow steadily. Do you?
Ther-,* is also the trolley and the auto-
mobiles for those who have time and
money, or both to go as they please, cr
can. There are a few tanatlc advertis-
ers whose methods might be likened to
these ways of getting over the ground.
However, any mode of travel is bound
to g**t Its cargo somewhere sometime,
just as every kind of advertising is sure
to accomplish something some times,
but—don't start an Idea by freight and
expect express results.
