THE NORMAN TRANSCRIPT—NORMAN. OKLAHOMA
WARNING TO ALL
gives pertinent pointer
about future progress
need for publicity
Great enterprises, vjreat buildings,
reat institutions, great accomplish
ncnts of every nature whatsoever,
ve their origin in the mind of man.
Some broad-minded, far-sighted
nan or group of men can look at the
iniall embryonic beginning of things
|nd so direct their growth and dfc-
lopnunt that they will evolve into
thing of beauty and a joy forever."
I wonder, sometimes, if we have
en in Norman with vision enough
form an adequate conception of
;he town's possibilities.
Norman is growing because it must.

In- state located here—the State Uni-
crsity. No other institution furnish-
as great a magnet for the better
lass of people to cluster around.

Kansas, with 300,000 fewer people,
has built up a city around its state
university three times as big as ours,
and so on ad infinitum. It is true
our state university is an infant. But
so is our state.
Must Grow With State.
And why doesn't the growth of
Norman keep pace with the growth
of the state? Well, it hasn't but it
should and I believe it will. We have
men here with considerable enterprise.
They have the pep Hud the business
capacity. But have they got the vis-
ion? When men do great things, they
must first have a vision of the things
they want done; a well defined pic-
ture of the things desired.
Then they must "plan their work
and work their plan."
Publicity Our Salvation.
I think all that Norman needs to
make it a bigger town is some adver-
tising. People are headed this way
now much more than they used t<> be.
Norman itself should do all with n
its power to accelerate the movement.
Let people in every city and hamlet
and cross roads all over the state
know that Norman contains the very
best of people, that it has the best
schools from kindergarten to a pro-
fessional course in the university,
that can be found anywhere; let them
