Chairman Draughon has a ca
in this issue for a meeting of the
Commercial Club at city hall to-
morrow (Friday) night when
the question of seweragfc for Da-
vis will be considered and plans
made looking to the securing o
that much needed necessity
is hoped a full turnout will be
had on this occasion -This is an
important move and the co-operation
of all our citizens is desired
Take the time and trouble to
come out
At this meeting a number of
other matters looking to the we
fare of Davis will be brought up
for consideration
The idea of sewerage for Da
vis seems to be more popular
than ever if we may judge by
the number of citizens who have
expressed their approval of the
project Some who were against
it in former campaigns are for it'
now Its necessity as a sanitary
measure is more apparent than
ever The matter will be dis
cussed from all angles at public
meetings to be held soon and
is hoped the people will be unan
imous for sewerage by the time
the election comes off
June is supposed to be a sum
mer month but this June has
far seemed more like a winter
month Monday and Tuesday
were unusually cold and fires fe
very comfortable With our ex-
periences this week it is hard
believe the story in Tuesday’
daily that a heat wave in Chicago
had caused seven deaths
We
Rye in Wheat
are advised by Govern
ment wheat officials that there is
considerable rye growing in
wheat fields in this section of
Oklahoma and that rye is very
detrimental to the flour when it
is ground up with the wheat am
it is next to impossible to separ
ate it from the wheat and wil
result in heavy dockage to the
wheat when marketed said a
member of the Davis Grain CoF
who suggests that you tell your
friends and all farmers who
have wheat that they go
through their wheat fields anc
either pull up or cut down every
bunch of rye before starting in
the harvest
