The Claremore Christian Builders
met Monday evening at the Baptist
church in regular session, Pres. A. B.
Mayberry in chair.
The program consisted of song ser-
vice, led by D. Esco Walker, a season
ities who are conducting the search | of prayers, discussion of the proposi-
for the bandit. tion to buy a moving picture machine
After a continuous search lasting
for over forty-eight hours, dbring
which time a posse scoured the hills in
an effort to apprehend the boy bandit,
some of the members returned to Ski-
atok where a new searching party
was organized and is at present comb-
ing the hills west of Skiatook in an
effort to capture Bysum. At a late
hour last night it was reported that
the Pugh boy had not regained con-
sciousness at the Tulsa hospital where
he had been taken the next day fol-
lowing the attack. It is said that
X-ray pictures taken of the boy's skull
show that the skull is fractured. Every
effort will be made to save the boy's \ often as possible,
life, but so far physicians in attend-
for the High School, and many other
matters were discussed for the bet-
terment of Claremore and its vicinity.
The Claremore Christian Builders
is an organization composed of the
Men'g Bible classes of the different
churches in Claremore and their work
is of a constructive and up-building
movement for the betterment and
a greater Claremore. ^
The organization meets every fourth
Monday night, usually at the Baptist
church. It is the urgent desire of the
officers that the members of the dif-
ferent Men's Bible classes in the dty
become active members an attend as
This is the second notice to auto-

people claim to know nothing about
the city ordinance on lights. For
this reason I notify the public for the
second and last time. It .is too ex-
pensive to publish the traffic ordi-
nance in full as it was published once
in full when passed by the City Coun-
