Sunday February Ninth Designed
Throughout Nation as Memorial
Day for Ex-President.
Congress has designated that next
Sunday February the ninth be set
apart as memorial day in honor of the
great American, Theodore Roosevelt.
The governors of all the states have
been asked to issue a proclamation
asking that this date be observed in
honor of this departed American. The
Governor's Proclamation follows:
The Nation mourns the departure
of one of its foremost citizens and
highly honored Statesmen, Ex-Presi-
dent, Theodore Roosevelt, whose la-
mented death in the prime of active
life and usefulness has created pro
found sorrow throughout the civilized
In order to testify to the respect
and esteem in which the people of
Oklahoma hold the memory of this
great American and exalted citizen of
the republic and of the world, I here-
by proclaim that Sunday, February
the ninth, nineteen hundred nineteen,
be observed by the citizens of Okla
homa in the various communities in
the State as memorial day, at which
time appropriate services in the dif-
ferent churches and community cen-
ters should be held and appropriate
tributes paid to the high personal
character and distinguished public
service of this remarkable figure in
the Nation's history.
Congress has already designated
this day for the memorial services of
the deceased Ex-President and it is
also with the wishes of Colonel Roos-
evelt's family and this date seems to
represent the expressed desire of the
people generally throughout the Na-
tion, that we should unite in this
service and that the observance of
the day should be nation-wide.

Seal of the State of Oklahoma, this

SAM HARRIS DIED.
Sam Harris, who is well known here
died last Wednesday night at Oilton,
and his body arrived here Friday night.
Funeral services were held at the
Baptist church here Saturdlay at 2:30
P. M. and interment took place at the
Sod cemetery, where his father is
buried. Sam was on his way here from
New Mexico where he had been for
the past year tor his health. He

ber of relatives and friends to mourn
The nations of the world which have
profited most from this war should
help most in the rebuilding of Europe.
Those nations are the United States,
Japan and certain republics of South
America. Whatever Japan and South
America may do, the duty of the
United States is clear. We have been
so active in the fight recently we are
apt to forget that we enjoyed almost
three years of war profits before we
took up arms. The world came to us
to buy. Our industries boomed. Our
trade outleaped all precedent. Mush-
room cities appeared by the dozen,
new millionaires by the thousand. Our
privations since entering the, war have
been slight compared with those of
other nations. We have had a bit less
sugar in our coffee and less wheat in
our bread. We have had to keep that
new car (bought perhaps with war
money) in the garage for a few Sun-
We have lost some thousands of our
boys as against the millions lost by
other nations. Our national per capita
debt is a trifle compared with the
others. Our leaders are' now making
great utterances on democracy. But
we must remember that for a long
time the other nations fought for de-
mocracy while we made money out of
the fight. Much of the wealth needed
to wage this war for liberty and de-
mocracy has flowed into our pockets.
The United States now stands war-
bloated with a prosperity unequalled
in the history of the nation or of the
world. We have not yet assumed our
full share in the real sacrifice for de-
mocracy. We can shoulder that share
by taking the lead in the rebuilding of
Europe. This will not be altruism—it
will be merely doing the rest of our
"bit," of which we have yet done so
small a part.
How about American churches? It
would be a terrible anomaly If the
Christian churches, followers of the
Great Hearer, be. levers in the Good
Samaritan should fail now to come to
the help of Europe, lying sick and
wounded beside the read where war
has passed by.—William Price in

Sri IKE SUMS
Many States will Spend Large Sums
on Road Construction this Year.
To make up Loss During War.
It will readily be seen that Okla-
homa would be behind should she de-
lay much longer the construction of
good roads. A number of the states
before the war, had spent large sums
on road construction and as soon as
the war ended these states have ap-
propriated and started a continuation
of this work, which is fair evidence
that it has proved a very good in-
The following is furnished by the
Department of Agriculture and shows
the amount to be spent this week by a
number of the states on road building.
About $300,000,000 will be put into
road building this year, according to
estimates by experts of the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, submitted to the
Division of Public Works and Con-
struction Department of the Depart-
ment of Labor. It is estimated that
about half this amount will go to
The $300,000,000 of construction es-
timated will not be sufficient to make
up deferred war construction, it is
believed, for normally the amount
spent on roads in the United States
is not far below $300,000,000, and dur-
ing war times road building came al-
most to a stop in many localities.
Estimates prepared for the follow-
ing States are considered accurate
within 1 or 2 per cent, according to
officials of the Department of Agri-
culture; Maine, $1,500,000; Rhode Is-
land $90,000; Connecticut, $4,000,000;
New York, $12,000,000; New Hamp-
shire, $175,000; Kentucky, $1,500,000;
Alabama, $1,000,000; West Virginia,
$16,000,000; Illinois; $9,000,000; Iowa,
$15,574,000; Louisiana, $4,674,000;
Texas, $20,000,000; Nebraska, $1,657,-

Wyoming, $653,000; Colorado. $3,900,-

$900,000; Nevada, $1,148,849,80; Idaho

tana are expected to make consider-
able expenditures on roads this year.
PURE BRED STOCK.
Washita county Pure Bred Live
Stock Association will hold a sale of
pure bred cattle, hogs and horses in
Cordell March 11-1919 ever animal
sold will be registered. This will be a
great opportunity for farmers to se-
cure a registered bull boar, or stal-
lion to head his herd with. No far-
mer can afford to have a grade sire
at the head of hisherd these days
when prices of stock are higher than
ever before and the demand Is for a
better grade of stock, the slogan all
over Oklahoma and the west is for a
registered sire at the head of every
herd. If each farmer does not feel
able to buy a registered bull he should
see his neighbor and go in together
and buy one. If the farmers would
cooperate together and form a few bull
clubs and buy some good bulls to
start with they could exchange and
would not need to buy again for sev-
If you Want to get a pure bred bull
before sale date and don't want to re-
ly upon your own Judgment. I will be
glad to assist you in locating and buy-
But would suggest that you wait till
the sale and two or three farmers go
in together and buy a good one.
With out a doubt the present legis-
lature will pass a law against the
scrub bull that will make it a hard-
ship for any one to own any thing but
a registered bull.
With the Washita breeders sale
March 11, and Mr. Lamberts sale at
Rocky March 12 and the Kiowa coun-
ty sale at Hobart on the 13th of March
this will be a good opportunity for
every farmer to secure one or more
registered animals to begin a herd of
pure bred cattle.
All farmers in need of breeding
stock should make arrangements with
your banker now so that they may
take advantage of this great opportun-
ity to start with better live stock.

Guy Snider was down from near
Foss Friday. Guy returned from fiver-
seas just recently and has been dis-
charged. He was In the Nintieth di-
vision and was in action along the St.
Mihiel and Verdun sectors, and re-
ceived a machine gun wound In the
shoulder while in action on the Verdun
front. A number of the Washita Coun-
ty boys were in the same Company
that he was. He was near and knows
just how some of the boys from this
county met their death. He left here
with the contingent October the 4th,

Pursuant to the decision made at
the meeting January the 30th, a meet-
ing has been called to meet at the
court house at Cordell on Saturday
February the 8th at 2 P. M„ when the
county Council will be organized.
Farmers, stockmen, business men, and
community organizations of all kfnds,
such as, Farmers' union, Commercial
clubs and all civic organizations are
requested to attend this meeting.
The object of these Councils will
be to bring about organization and
system in promoting better farming,
stock raising, and all phases of farm
life. After the county Council is or-
ganized a campaign will be carried out
in all the districts of the county with
the object of organizing district Coun-
cils. Every county in fifteen of the
southern states and every county in
Oklahoma, except Washita county have
organized these Farm councils and

check on the absences and assign-
ments. I witnessed with interest and
amusement the endeavors of certain
students to "put up an argument" with
the principal along this line.

that they plant them in one row of

See H. F. Tolliver, Farmers' National
Indianapolis News: In his address
before the Royal Academy of Science
at Rome, of which he was elected a
member, President Wilson spoke of
the function of science and its relation
to life. "There is," he said, "a Bense
in which the continuity of human
thought is in the care of bodies like
this," and "a serenity, a long view, on
the part of science, which seems to
be of no age, but to carry human
thought along from the elements of
passion." It is a noble ideal and one
which men of science have very often
realized. The study of physical phe-
nomena undoubtedly does have a
calming and broadening effect on the
human mind. For it is nothing less
than the pursuit of truth by men with
whom truth is the first consideration.
Men can not be prejudiced even in fa-
vor of their own phyotheses if they
are to be prepared to abandon them
when they no longer serve. Recog-
nizing all this, the President went
on to say:
"Therefore it Is, I dare say with
all men of science a matter of pro-
found regret and shame that science
should, in a nation which has made
science its. boast have been put to
such dishonorable usob In the recent
war. Every just mind must condemn
those who so debased the studies of
men of science as to use them against
humanity, and therefore, It is part of
your task and of ours to reclaim sci-
ence from this disgrace, to show that
she Is devoted to the advancement and
intdteBt of humanity, and not to its
embarrassment and destruction."
The indictment must stand. The
charge Is not that Germany uses sci-
ence in the prosecution of war, f6r
as long as war continues that will have
to be done. We must look to scien-
tists and inventors for the best guns,
ammunition, explosives, warships and
airplanes. There is a science of war
itself. It is, no doubt, a shame that
the greatest abilities and powerB of
men are thus turned to the destruction
rather than the safeguarding and de-
velopment of humanity. But that is
war. It is not peculiar to Germany. It
Is of the use of poisoned'gas, the dis-
semination of noxious germs, the
bombarding—from the sea and the
air—of open towns, the unrestricted,
submarine warfare, and the perfecting
of the incendiary process that the pres-
ident and other men are thinking.
Here indeed were the "triumphs" of
Nor are they the only ones. Psych-
ologists, philosophers and ethnologists
have built up a set of theories de-
signed ttUusitfy Germany's world am-
bitions, Bid to excuse—Indeed, to i
glorify—any methods adopted to real- j
Ize them. Thus science has allowed
itself to be degraded until it became I
the tool and slave of a base, wicked
and heartless autocracy. The com-
bination of modern science with med- i
ievai morals—or lack of them—is what j
has shocked the world. It surely is I
the duty of all to do what they can "to
reclaim science from this disgrace."
Also Help in Reconstruction
Work. Sunday Schools Busy.
Methodist churches all over the
Southern and Western States are wak-
ing up these days. April 27 to May 4
the M.E. Church South, will conduct
a drive for $35,000,000 with a view of
putting the work of the church on a
business basis while, at the same time
enabling it to shoulder Its responsi-
bility during the days when a world
is to he reconstructed. Out of the sum
of $35,000,000 the Sunday schools of
the church will contribute a good
quota, and the plan decided upon in
this connection is interesting.
Every Sunday school will be ex-
pected to make an offering for mis-
sions of an average of five cents a
month per pupil enrolled. As some
young people in the Sunday schools
will not be able to give even this small
amount, those who can give more than
this will do so, but five cents per
month per pupil is the regular allot-
ment for the Sunday schools, and this
pledge Is now being made by thous-
ands of Sunday schools. This sum
will be pledged for the forthcoming
five years, and no doubt will total $3,-
500,000 as the Sunday school contri-
bution to the Centenary.
Already Sunday school superintend-
ents in every city and town in the
Southern and Western States are ap-
pointing committees and getting ready
to go over the top in the great drive

My Dear Superintendent:
I am delighted with the letters
which I have received in response to
my letter of January 21st with refer-
ence to the question of having the nor-
mal training students attend summer
school before issuing their certificates.
Every superintendent from whom I
have heard has defended his pupils
in a way which I like to have them do,
at the same time in nearly every case
they have indicted that it would be
better for the students to attend the
summer school and the only excuse
offered are that to require them to
attend school would be disappointing
and that many are not able to do so.
Both excuses, I consider as being
Every superintendent has given me
the plan by which he is overcoming
the lost time on account of the epi-
demic of Influenza and this is very
gratifying. It is true that the normal
training schools, without exception,
are the best high schools, and I think
in most caBes that the young people
from these high schools have made
good teachers. The one really dis-
appointing feature in the normal train-
ing high schools is that so many of
the students seem to forget that the
certificate which they receive carries
with it an obligation to attend col-
lege, at least, one full year by the
time it expires and before it can be
