It is known that there is a bill
pending before the Oklahoma le^i*
lature to extend the tim«* for payment
of the first half of the 1920 taxes for
several months for the benefit of the
farmers of the state, *who. have had
difficulty in disposing of crops at pay
ing prices, but it appears from the
way that the fanners are paying up n
this county that they arc not especial-
ly needing this extra extension.
Some of the bigger taxpayers are
seemingly-holding oft in the hope that
this pending bill may become a law in
time to get the benefit of such an ex-
tension, but the farmers of our county
are not wa ting.

It is one of the most worthy moves
that has been inaugurated in this
community and there should be no hes-
itancy by the citizenship and especial
ly the business men. in giving it both
their moral and full financial support.
It must be remembered that the ^
M. C. A as a part of the university
here, in addition to the imtnensv
amount of good work done has had a
moral effect that no other influence
has or could have. In realization of
fact that the university has been, is
now and in the future must be more
so, the best asset that Norman and
Cleveland county has or is likely to
have, there must be no lagging -on
the part of anyone in futhering to the
utmost limit the securing of the neces-
sary funds required.
The dawning of a brighter day for
Norman and its business men is at
hand and it must not be forgotten
that in its past history and during

Ordinance With Penalty^
There is a city ordinance requiring
that these back spaces be kept clean
and in a sanitary condition, but tin-

attached to this ordinance unless it is
absolutely necessary, but warning is
given that unless co-operation is given

on the alleys. If you have trash piled
up for the city wagons and it is not
hauled away in a reasonable time, re-
port it to the city manager, phone 340,
and he will see that it is taken up.
But be careful how your place is
kept. Have the trash placed in a con-
venient place for taking up, because
the city men have not time to ^o into
lots and gather up trash.
If the citizens and business men
will exercise only a little diligency in
this matter the city will be kept as it
should be and everybody will be proud
