prices to an advanec of 5 points, the

Sends Students Back to Farms.
Guthrie.—The fruition of the sys-
tem of secondary education estau-
llshed by the first state legislature,
unique in Its scope and character, was
found in the graduation from the Mur-
ray School of Agriculture at Tisho-
mingo, during the week, of four stu-
dents, James Allen Jennings, James
Earl Kemp, Aubry Claude Mason and
Miss Genevieve Leslie Shearer. The
three boys of the class all will go back
to the farm, showing that the school
has accomplished its purpose and has
not weaned its students away from
farm life, as is charged against so
many agricultural schools, while Miss
Shearer will teach domestic science in
the schools of the state.
These four graduates are the first
to finish the course in any of the sec-
ondary agricultural schools, six of
which are now in operation. The regu-
lar course Is three years, and it was
not expected that any of the students
would finish In less time than that, but
the four who graduated this year al-
ready had a good high school training
and were able to obtain credits on a
large part of their academic work aiiu
devote most of their time to the in-
dustrial work, thus finishing the en-
tire course In two years' time. The
three boys had for the subject of their
commencement addresses "The Value
of a Mechanical Education," "Educa-
tion for the Farmer," and "Live Stock
Problems," while the one girl's subject
was "Education for the Homemaker—
Guthrie, Okla. That the initiative
and referendum will be used on three

hearing in the case attacking the le-
gality of the 57,000-name petition ini-
tiating an amendment to the state
constitution abolishing prohibition
and setting up a system of local op-
tion and high license, and the peti-
tions are now up to the governor for
him to call an election.
A decision was also handed down
in the women's suffrage case, and
the bill proposing to eliminate the
word "male" from the electorate pro-
visions of the state constitution are
now up to the governor for him to
call an election also.
The governor Tuesday issued his
proclamation calling an election on
the "grandfather clause" Amendment
to the constitution under which it ia
hop'id to disfranchise the ignorant ne-
gro vote of the state.
The supreme court a week ago af-
firmed the validity of the "New Jeru-
salem" capital location bill, and that
must either be voted on or put out of
the way somehow.

A Program of Unusual Merit Now in
Lovers of racing are enjoying a
i series of fine races at Oklahoma City,
i where the econd annual meeting ol
j the Oklahoma City Jockey Club, from
June 15 h to July 4th, is in progress.
