If there is anything in signs, the "three
Cs" are going to have the time of their
lives "catching on" at the hands of their
political party leaders during the next
few months, and it is more than likely
that the building up of Independent politi-
cal machines, especially when the ma-
chine is created at the expense of the
taxpayers to be used against the Haskell

PREPARE TO CLIP WINGS.
It seems to be rather difficult fur some
people to educate the people of Oklahoma
to the fact that they are greater than
the state and as a result members of the
