Senator Owen would not ask another

The revival services that have heel'
in progress . at the First Christian
church will close tonight. A rally
of all the members and friends of
the church is desired. Many live so
tar away that with the conditions
of tile crossings streets and roads
it is n?xt to impossible for the
great number who have read through
the columns of the Ardmoreite of
the meetings to attend. However
tonight it is expi cted that many will
brave 'he elements to hear this last
message. The services though last-
ing only ten days have been unusu
ally instructive and inspirational.
It is a matter of general regre t ex-
pressi d freely by our citizens who
have heard Lev. Mr. Spicer. tint
conditions were not favorable for a

justly d' served.
The church and Rev. M. S. John-

period of prosperity is predicted for
these gool people. Rev. Spicer will
return to Law ton tomorrow via
