the second, acocunts for the lack of
excitement. Even the suffrage plank
did not stir up much feeling—the vote
was so one sided.
There was enthusiasm whenever
emphasis was placed upon the fact
the President had kept us out of war,
or when a reference was made to the
1 fact that the nation favors peace. The
preparedness plank drew forth but
little applause--a good omen. The
delegates went home happy and the
visitors were satisfied.
Now for the campaign. We must

that the committee on attractions has
several good offers and it is needless
to say that they will get the cleanest

ease of Henry Willmering, expert wit-
ness in the Arkansas rate cases won
in the United States Supreme Court,
expert in the Oklahoma rate cases
and candidate for corporation commis-
sioner, to succeed George Henshaw.
Met the Giant Early.
Mr. Willmering war born in Louisa
county, Iowa, in 1870. His father had
been for years a prominent grower and
shipper of live stock. His earliest
business impressions, received while
yet spending spare hours fishing and
playing town-lot ball, related to his
father s problems of live stock trans-
portation, rate * charged, losses in tran-
sit, cost of loading, feeding, etc. Un-
consciously, he began applying his
young but naturally analytical mind
to these matters, and it was natural
enough that, at the age of 15. while yet
in high school, he became connected
with the Burlington, Cedar Rapids &
Northern Railroad, as station helper in
Fort Allen, Iowa. Here he came into
contact with records dealing with the
originating, shipping and receiving of
many kinds of traffic.
Seeks a Bigger World.
Business reverses which overtook
his father made it necessary for him ;
to increase his income. This fact and
the realization that his uome town af-
forded little opportunity for develop-
ment of ability in his chosen line
prompted the young man to go to Chi-
cago, where at the age of 20 be became
a yard clerk for the Pennsylvania Rail-
road. Here he found traffic in un-
limited volume and an opportunity to
develop his initiative in improving the
systems in use for keeping transpor-
tation records. His ability being recog-
nized promptly, he found himself at
21 assigned to the task of developing
actual costs of handling tonnage in
and out through the great Pennsyl-
vania warehouses. For more than ten
years he applied himself to the solu-
tion of statistical problems on the
Pennsylvania and the Wabash.
In 1903 Oklahoma's first oil boom
attracted him to the coining state. |
Placed In charge of the station at
Cleveland by the M„ K. & T, ho
handled successfully one of the heav-
iest congestions In freight traffic ever
recorded in the southwest, and laid the
foundation for his presenl high stand-
ing in commercial circles of this state.
Take, Up People's Fight.
K believer In fairness In all matters,
Including railway rates and service,
and convinced of great opportunities
for good in the jurisdiction conferred
by the Oklahoma constitution on the
Corporation Commission, and having
been always an active and effective
worker In the p: rtv that wrote the con-
stitution, Mr, Willmering applied for
and secured the position of statistician
and rate expert when tile Commission
fas organised In 1911 he accepted,
a more remunerative position with the
local gas distributing company in Ok-
lahoma City, as Its auditor. A pro-
vision in his contract enabled him to
assist the Corporation Commission at
any time in Its rate cases. This pro-
vision has given the state the benefit
of his counsel at all times, without

DISTINCTIVE HATS NOW
FOR TENNIS, MOTORING,
AND THE COUNTRY CLUB
Shops making a specialty of
women's sport hats and suits are pay-
ing much attention to hats. These
hats all fit into a particular place in
the fashion worlu, each group being
designed for a special sport. For ten-
nis there are stitched linen hats to
match skirts of the same material,
' and soft straws with medium brims
which may be rolled at any angle.
Cretonne hats and soft straws, ap-
pliqued with silk or linen flowers, are
also used for tennis.
For motoring there are smooth felt'
sailors with rough felt-faced brims in
staple colors; soft bangkok straws,
leather hound and trimmed, also ill
sailor shape; mushroom straws, trim-
med with stiff wreaths or bookmark
ribbon bows; white canvas hats with
patent leather bindings and leaf trim-
mings; and close silk hats simply
trimmed and made in many new
The country club hai3 are most at-'
j tractive of all. They include the wide-
brimmed white felt, hand painted or

i floating ends; very wide-brimmed
j fancy straws hand painted on their
closely fitted silk crowns, or straws
| with brims covered with the same jer-
i sey cloth that the sweaters are made
of, the crowns being decorated with
worsted flowers to match. Such a va-
; riety greets the shopper's eye that it
is hard to choose, while the prices

Stripes Are Popular.
Among the newest dresses are mod
els made of Georgette crepe striped
with dark blue. Belgian blue, flame
color, green, orchid and black. Ordin-
arily the color is imposed on a white
i ground and the upper part of the
frock to be developed in al lwhite by
way of a striking foil for the lower
section of the striped material.
An instance of this is found in a
frock which will doubtless be aired
soon. It shows a hlouse and skirt yoke
. of white Georgette crepe and a shaped
flounce of dark blue and white strip-
ed crepe. The stripes are of graduated
width and run in horizontal lines by
way of accentuating the patterns.
There is a peplum of the silk cut
long over the hips and finished at one
side with streamers of dark blue vel-
vet ribbon. The sleeves are long and
confined in a high cuff of the fabric
outlined across the upper and lower
edges with quilling of the material.
