"All intelligent men" said Chcn-

legging and gambling in Tulsa but
we must not lie too iiiiek to critici.e
the officials for not stamping it out.
Siippiissing those evils is a bigger
job than most of us imagine. And
we must remember that ulnng with
these things the city has grown and
prospered until it is one of the best
cities in America. We have the fin-
est churches in the state here and a
Y. M. ('. A. building of which we
should all be proud."
"The Y. M. C. A. and the churches
should not mix up with polities'' he
declared "for that is not their mis-

am alisoluielv opposed lo enner uiu

Clienaiilt said that he was a "yellow
