NEEDED IN SUCCESS OF PAPER
WANT ADS ARE CASH
Want ads are strictly cash in advance.
That is to say we do not take want ads
over the telephone. We have about
seventy five dcllais due us for want ads
These are little accounts that are scat-
tered throughout the town, and it would
v cost moie co send a collector after them
than the ads are worth The cost of want
ads is a cent and a half per word each
insertion, with a minimum charge oi
twenty-f.ve cents, so it is easy to figure
out the cost. Send your want ads to the
office by the children, or any one else
Transcript want ads are bringing results.
Try one if you have anything to sell or
want to buy anything, or if you have lost
or found anything.

M P. McNAMEE PICTURES THE
BEAUTY AND GLORY OF NOR-
MAN AND THE TRANSCRIPT.
Some poet some time personified
the li tie stream and quoted it as say-
ui. , vien may come and men may go
but i g< on forever," The same may
oi ten be aid of newspapers. While
some newspapers, like some trees and
some institutions, have an ephemeral
•Mice and soon die • ut. many ni
;hem survive from generation to gen-
ration and promise to live and serve
purpose so iong as the town in which
'hey are published remains upon the
•iap. ft is a question of the ability of
the paper's management to adjust it
( the changing conditions of its en-
vironment and keep pace with the de-
velopment of the town. While a town
is ill the country village class its local
paper cannot expect to wield a wide
influence and eotne up to the ideals of
In metropolitan papers; but as the
town grows the paper should be able
to expand in size and vision and in-
fluence. Norman at the present time
.oid for a year or two past seems to
be enjoying an unprecedented era of
growth ami expa tsjon. li has cast off
iis swaddling clothes and is well along
in the knee pant stage. It is now hope-
fully looking forward to a time when
it will In- able to wear men's clothing.
1 he Transcript so far as 1 know and
can learn has always been a progres-
sive, forward-looking publication. It
has always worked for the best inter-
ests of the town, giving aid and en-
couragement to every movement for
the moral, religious, educational and
material advancement of the town and
e immunity. But while it helped the
town to grow, no newspaper can grow
much taster than the town in which
it is published. It takes a big con-
tituency to make a big newspaper.
F he constituency of the Norman
Transcript, I suspect, has almost dou-
bled since 1 came here seven years
ago. Its advertising patronage has no
doubt made equally as great an in-
crease. I am pleased to note here of
late months that the Transcript
seems capable of expanding along with
the town of Norman. It is not only
getting bigger and better but it has
visions < t a great future both for it-
self and Norman. It is rising to the
task of planning a greater Norman
j and helping to carry out the plan.
[What an\ newspaper needs to make
I a success of it is money, brains and
vision. And while 1 have mentioned
money first, it really comes last, be-
cause brains aud \ision put into a
newspaper will bring money and mon-
ey won't give a man brains and vision.
Kraiu.s and vision, however, are pret-
ty closely related, for while a man
may have some brains without much
vision, he can't have much vision with-
out brains. Joseph Pulitzer had no
I money but he had vision and brains
'and he founded one of the greatest
newspapers in America and acquired
great wealth. Vision takes a lot of
jungle and rubbish and raw material
and converts it into a commodious
! home and surrouids it with a lawn
covered with spreading shade trees
j and beautiful flowers and shrub*: it
I takes i ragged, rambling, straggling
' c uflTr town with muddy or dusty
| st. >vs, filled with rubbish, and con-
; verts it into a fine, sanitary city with
i all the comforts and conveniences of
a modern up-to-date city and all the
! embellishments peculiar to people of
culture and refinement; it takes a raw
uncouth, uncivilized set of barbarians
J and converts them into a progressive,
j useful, helpful citizenship. I believe
the Transcript now has some men con-
trolling it who have vision. 1 want
to see it grow with the town and the
state. 1 believe it will continue to
widen its circle of usefulness. There is
perhaps no other individual organiza-
tion or institution in a city or town
that can wield as great an influence
for weal or woe as a newspaper. 1 he
pulpit or the school hardly surpasses
the newspaper in the power to mould
public opinion. The people who con-
trol the editorial policy of the Tran-
script should get a 'clear picture in
heir minds of a beautiful city of sa)
twenty or thirty thousand inhabitants
A city that is sanitary and crean mor-
ally and physically. A city that is
beautiful i'1 look upon, a joy t-> live
within, and then they should never
stop preaching and pounding and ex-
pounding until that picture become*
I a reality in all of its beauty and sym-
metry and loveliness. It is not
enough that a newspaper should re
tlect public opinion- describe things
as they are and record events as the>
happen. A newspaper should mould
I public opinion—picture things as they
should be and then strive to bring the
physical condition and artistic ap-
pearance of the town and the moral
md aesthet e sense of the people up
to that high standard of excellence.
