T H E D RUMRIGHT DERRICK
RED CROSS MEETS,
14 MORE PLEDGES
The Drumright loyal of the Red
Cross met at city hall last evening
and 14 pledges were given for num
berahip. This brings the total mem
bcrshfp up to 32.
Those who have been working to
increase the membership reported
that their chief trouble laid in the
fnct th-it those approached did not
understand the object of the organi-
sation. thinking that all members
were obligated to the front. Others
wanted to know what disposition wn
to be made of the monies that were
taken in for the cause.
Any one who joins the Red Cross
is not obligated to go to the front at
all. Many people have the impres-
sion that Red Cross is synonymous in
a way with war. This is a wrong im
pression. The work of the Red t i os:
is one of mercy and humanitarian ism
end it makes no difference whether it
be in war or in times of peace. The
Red Crosta has been called up in
times of peace. The dtuies performe
by the local Red Cross will lie mostly
home work, such as sewing, the mak-
ing of bandages, dressings, surgeons'
gowns, etc., for the Red Cross at the
front and for the soldiers. It will be
called upon to send magazines and
periodicals to the front. It will be
called upon to help support, finan
cially, the Red Cross in active service
In fact the local Red Cross will do
anything that will be an act of mercy
for our men at the front.
As far as the disposition of the
monies collected is is concerned the
membership fees collected by the lo
c l are handled in this manner: One
half of the fee is turned in to the
chapter under which we are working.
In this instance the chapter is 'lulsa.
Tulsa upon receipt of this money in
turn sends it to the national head-
quarters at Washington which is un-
der th" jurisdiction of the war de-
partment, and they expend it for
whatever purpose they may see fit in
the furtherance of the Red Cross
There is to be a chapter organized
in Creek county. Sapulpa may pet
it, and so may Drumright. Neither
one has been recognized yet. Which
one is going to get it? Why not

Our attention has been called to a
certain -article that was published as
an editorial in the evening effort re-
garding the local Sunday closing I
The telephone calls that this office
has received from representative citi-
zens of Drumright protesting against
having the campaign pre-judged in
this manner, expressing their hopes
that the Evening Derrick would not
take a similar stand, thus exhibiting
such narrow mindeness, have been nu-
That this movement is the senti-
ment of the people of Drumright is
evident from the fact that the mer-
chants themselves, the ones against
whom this campaign, you might say
was started, have come forward in
hearty according with the movement.
The little brass hammer seems to
be in use continually in writing the
articles that appear in the "Cesspool"
daily. Personal grudge, animosity
and hate form the context of most
every article that appears in that
sheet It 's a well known fact that
no one has ever been known to use
that little brass hammer to the ex-
tent it is being used by the Effort and
not hammer their own fingers in time.
This campaign is being waged in
the interest of those that are forced
to work in the business houses during
the week and not to work a hardship
upon the business men of this city.
Hut then what could you expect
from tn oxtheatrical foreflusher of
the fifteenth century that was forced
to have his transportation advanced
him in order to reach Drumright and
is now espousing the cause of certain
capitalists for certain measures to be
carried out so that they may get their
hands in the pork barrel and come out
The merchants and citizens of
Drumright are with you, ladies, and
y-now that you are only asking such
places to close as the law provides.

For Best Values In
Front Lace Corsets
Here are three new models
which will convince any dis-
criminating woman that "La
Camille" is in a field by lUelt.
Now as always, the line with
the best fitting models, finest a-
brics, lowest prices, and exclu-
sive patented feature.
MODEL 1613 is suitable for medium
figures of good proportions. Made of
beautiful figured Batiste, in white, or
white with pink figure. Trimmed
with neat embroidery. Elastic sec-
tion in bottom of hack. Six hose
supporters. 10 1-2-inch clasp. Sizes
19-28. Price $5.00.
The Front Lace Corset with the
IlcK. Trade Mark, U. 8. l'at. Ofik«.
Back and Ventilo Front
No front lace corset without
these features can possibly be
as good as "La Camille.
MODEL 146 is a model for the slight
and average figure. Has medium
height bust and medium length of
skirt. Made of good strong Sterling
cloth in white only. Six hose sup-
porters. 10 1-2-inch clasp. Sizes
19-28. Price $2.00.
Especially during the summer months is the
Ventilo feature in "La Camille'' corsets ap-
preciated. It really permits ventilating of the
back, prevents perspiring and consequent
staining of corsets. It means longer life to
the corset containing this feature.
We cordially invite you to enjoy a
fitting of these superb corsets. By
trying on the model and size intended
for your figure, you learn how su-
perior they are.

Officers of the army are prohibited
from wearing gold lace uniforms at

Official announcement is made in
the "Ozark Trails," official bulletin,
published at Monte Ne, Ark., of the
coming inspection of the competing
trail roads from St. Louis to Amarillo.
According to the itinerary of the of-
ficial inspectors, the party will be in
Drumright June 11. The inspection
starts at Tulsa June 1.
Do we want Drumright on the
trail? We do, yes, but will we get
it? Will we all work in harmony to
secure this advantage for Drumright?
How are we going to receive this
party of inspectors?
Each judge will have a score book
in which he will make official notes
and records of the condition of each
route inspected, covering the follow-

6. Concrete culverts—24 feet
7. Curve turns at all right angles.
8. Above high water.
9. Hard surface, which means any
surface that makes a good road 365
days in the year. What we expect to
find, in the main, is either sand and
clay roads well mixed in the pro-
portion of about 30 per cent clay and
70 per cent sand, or gravel, chats or
ciushed rock with clay binder.
10. If, in our judgment, there is
1 a tie between any two routes then
the progressiveness of the people,
their love of the common good, their
probable willingness to help maintain
organization, will be taken into con-
Naturally as citizens and business
men of Drumright we want this city
on the trail. It means prestige. It's
an advertisement for the city. It is
money to the town.
Why can't the citizens and the
Commercial club get together and
give this conwiittee a grand, good
reception, pointing out the advantages
of putting Drumright on the trail?
