11. T. Laugh baum,
The following is a copy of the
letter referred to:
Oklahoma Cify, Apr. 22, 1914.
Dear Sir:— We are now starting
to initiate a Local Option Bill, to
be submitted to the voters ol the
state at the next Gem:ral Election
this kind costs mvWv, and astlie
people of our state are overbur-
dened by excessive taxation*
partly due to the prohibition law
we find it difficult to raise the
required amount of money from
the liberal element in this state
to carry out our work; conse-
quently we are asking financial
aid from abroad, and we appeal
to those who are in sympathy
with the cause of local option,
and to those who understand
what success of the movement
in this state means, not only to
our state alone, but to all other
states throughout the nation, also
the political effect it will have on
congress, in relation to what has
new become a nation wide move-
ment to bring the question of
prohibition before tht United
States Congress, for the submis-
sion of a prohibition Amendment
to the Constitution of the United
The inroads made bv the pro-
hibitionists, by bringing addi-
tional states into their column,
is having ti e effect of giving
strength to the National Prohi-
bition movement, and the only
way to check their work is for
some of the dry states togo back
into the Local Option column.
This in itself will serve notice
on Congress that the nation as a
whole i not in sympathy with
prohibition and does not want it
that way. We consider it much
better to fight the battle as we
are now doing than to permit it
to become a National Issue to be
threshed out after congress has
submitted an amendment to the
Constitution of the United States
to be voted on by the people.
To bring Oklahoma back into
the Local Option column will be
of universal benefit to the whole
country, and the aid you give in
helping us at this time is not for
us alone, but for the general
good of the cause throughout
the country; as National Prohi-
bition is sure to come unless
soon checked or stopped before
the movement becomes much
We feel assured that, from the
moral support this association is
receiving throughont the state,
and by the general condition
that now exists, that we can Lo-
calOptioi by a sweeping major-
ity, if our campaign is properly
ti .anced and carried to a close,
hence we are now asking your
support. Do what you can for
the cause, if you can send but a
but a dollar it will be appreciated
and in the future, should you
ever need any assistance, w? will
only be too glad to return the
For your information as to
who are in charge of this move-
ment, you mav look up the stand-
ing of the members of our dir-
ectory, through any Commercial
Thanking you in advance for
favors, we remain,
Yours very truly,
The United Civic Association.
Mrs. J. A. Lee entertained the
Little Sunbeam class of the
Christian Church, Sunday after-
noon at her home in honor of
little Harry Lee's 4th birthday.
Ice cream and cake were served
out of doors in the shade of the
locust trees. Mr. and Mrs. D W
Pieratt took the children out
from town in their car. The little
folks enjoyed themselves playing
under the shade trees with the
little ducks and chickens. At 6
o'clock they started for home
where they rehearsed the events
of the afternoon to home folks.
The following were present:
Eula Katheryn Foresman, Nellie
Mildred and Paul Pieratt, Vir-
girnia Greene, Helen Roy, b em
Irene an*i Ollie May llarrold,
Dorthy Mathers, Frank, Harry
and Winona Lee.
P A1NFU ITACCIDENT .
I Alice, the little daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. John A. Spohn ran
a needle its full length in her
heel a week ago Tuesday and
broke it in two in the middle. She
was taken to the doctor at La-
verne at once, but he was unable
to locate it. The next day she
was taken to Woodward to Dr.
Ralph H. Workman who used an
X Ray and located the needle
and cut it out, makingan incision
2 inches long and about 3-4 of an
inch deep. She was quite sick
for a couple of days on account of
the chloroform etc, but is getting
along all right now.
Is the proper setting for a proposal but it should also •
1 be backed up with a substantial bank account, for
even a bluff is apt to be called. Prepare yourself <
against any such embarrassment by starting an ac-
count with us and assure yourself that the laugh will'
not te on you
