ROLL OK HONOR
The above is the personel of the
April 1916 term of the county court

tion of county attorney:
State of Oklahoma vs. Wallace
Vaughan, Ira Vaughan, and Jim Cole-
State of Oklahoma vs. Ollie Horter.

The Transcript would be greatly
pleased to print your name in it
of honor. Tome thou and do
wise, as the above have done.
The first thing that should be learned in home, school or
shop is obedience. Do your work with a whole heart! Revolt is
some times necessary, but the person who mixes revolt and
obedience is doomed to disappoint himself and everybody with
whom he has dealings. To flavor work with protest is to fail
absolutely. When you revolt, why revolt—blow up—climb, get
out—do it like you meant it—tell everybody and let everything
go to Helena. That disposes of the case. You thus separate
yourself entirely from those you have served—no one misunder-
stands you—you have declared yourself. But to pretend to
obey, and yet carry in your heart the spirit of revolt, is to do
half-hearted and slipshod work. If revolts and obedience are
equal, your engine will stop on center and you benefit nobody,
not even yourself. The spirit of obedience is the controlling
impulse of the receptive mind and the hospitable heart. There
are boats that mind the helm and boats that do not. Those that
do not, get holes knocked in them sooner or later. To keep off
the rocks obey the rudder. Obedience is not to obey slavishly
this man nor that buit it is thatcfieerfui mental condition which
responds to the necessity of the lore, and does the thing. Obedi-
ence to the institution—loyalty! The man who has not learned
to obey has trouble ahead of him every step of the way—the
world has it in for him because he has it in for the world. The
person who does not know how to receive orders is not fit to
issue them. But he who knows how to execute orders is pre-
paring the way to give them, and better still—to have them

COUNTY COURT ADJOURNED
From Wednesday's Daily.
The April term of the county court
adjourned yesterday afternoon. Only
two cases were up for trial, although
when it convened there was a pretty
fair docket. County Attorney Grigs-
by announcd to the court on Monday
that, owing to witnesses leaving the
country, and a lack of evidence, con-
viction in many of the cases was im-
possible, and asked that they be dis-
missed. This was done in all the
criminal cases except one. One poor
fellow pleaded guilty to being drunk
and disorderly, and was fined $1.00
and costs amounting to $25 in all.
All the civil cases were con-
tinued for the term or settled out of
court except one. This was a dispute
between the First National Bank of
Noble and W. R. Haines as to which
held the first legal mortgage on cer-
tain property. It involved something
like $100 and was decided by the court
in favor of Mr. Haynes.
There were no jury trials.

DEATH OF,W. F. LOCKE
From Tuesday's Daily.
Death put an end to the sufferings
of our fellow-townsman, Mr. Will F.
Locke, at his home, No. 320 East
Symmes street in this city yesterday
(Sunday, April 10, 191R) at 6 o'clock
p. m. Up until a few hours before his
death he was conscious, and knew his
family and friends, but fell into a
comotose condition about 2 o'clock,
never regaining consciousness. His
end was peaceful, surrounded by mem-
bers of his family.
Thus ends the life of a good citi-
zen, a devoted husband and father,
and a man highly esteemed and re-
spected by all who knew him. He was
an old settler of Norman, coming here
in the early days, and always earnest
and active in the upbuilding of the
city. He was a member of Norman

For a year or so Mr. Locke has been
suffering from cancer and other com-

DEATH OF A. E. HARRISON
News comes from Nelson, British
Columbia, of the death there on
March 29, 1916, of Mr. A. E. Harrison,
who left here some years ago and
settled in Canada. He died in a Nel-
son hospital, following an operation
for appendicities, and was buried on
March 30th, Rev. Mclntyre conduct-
ing the services. His age was 44
years, and Mrs. Harrison and four
sons survive him.
Former Norman friends will grieve
to hear this news, for Mr. Harrison
was a good man, a good citizen and
devoted husband and father. He and

ULTIMATUM TO GERMANY
President Wilson Forwards Another
Note to Germany, Declaring Sub-
marine Attacks Must
Cease—No Time Limit
Washington, April 19.—President
Wilson, having fully made up his
mind that Germany has flagrantly
and persistently violated her pledges
to the United States by attacking
without warning peaceful merchant
vessels carrying American citizens,
forwarded another note to Germany
this morning warning her that unless
such attacks, in violation of interna-
tional law, are stopped, diplomatic re-
lations will be severed. The Presi-
dent explained to Congress that the
note is practically an ultimatum, but
does not contain a time limit. A de-
mand is made, however, that Ger-
many reply immediately.
The note is said to be the most em-
phatic of any yet sent to Germany,
but its text will not be given out, it
is said, until it has time to reach
Germany, probably on Thursday. It
is believed if Germany persists in her
course, diplomatic relations will be
certainly severed; that this is no bluff
pussy-footing"—and severance of
diplomatic relations with a country
invariably means war.
President Wilson is meeting with
both houses of Congress in joint ses-
sion this afternoon, outlining to them
the conditions as they appear to hiui
and making a frank statement ol'
what he has done. Congress is ex'
pected to endorse his actions and give
him a free hand in dealing with any
issue that may arise. The President's
talk to Congress gave instances of
what he designated as "gross viola-
tions of international law" in U-boat
activities by the Germans.
The pursuit of Villa will be aban-
doned, it is thought, and United States
troops now in Mexico be brought back
across the border, as they may be
needed in this country. It is recog-
nized that the United States is honey-
combed with spies, and breaking off
of diplomatic relations with Germany
may lead to rioting and uprisings.
It is believed Germany will be heard
from by Sunday. She may think the
United States is bluffing, and refuse
to take us seriously, and then it will
be up to this country to make good
LARSH BACK FROM VIRGINIA
Messrs. D. L. Larsh and Harry
Larsh returned Monday ni(?ht from a
flying trip to Virginia and Pennsyl-
vania. It was a "flying trip," too, a*
is evidenced by the fact that they
were gone just seven days, and during
that time visited fourteen states and
the District of Columbia and traveled
several thousand miles. They went
the southern route, through Alabama,
Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky,
West Virginia, Virginia and the Caro-
linas, coming back through New Jer-
sey, Pennsylvania and the northern
central states. It will be seen they
did not tarry long in any one place,
but say they had a fine time.

that of Hughes is mentioned in con-

tion, and it is recognized that no one
knows how Mr. Hughes stands on any
question or important issue now be-
fore the people. There is no misunder-
standing or doubt concerning Mr.
Roosevelt's position on any question,
and therein lies his strength.

INTERESTED LV GAS
Judge J. B. Dudley is getting inter-
ested in the proposition of "Gas for
Norman,' and if he gets properly in-
terested the Transcript believes there
will be something doing on that prop-
osition, for Mr. Dudley pushes every-
thing in which he gets interested.
Goodness knows Norman ought to
have gas. It's the one thing she lacks
to make the town ideal.
Here’s what’s next.
