EXCELLENT MEETING OF
COMMERCIAL CLUB HELE
In Absence of K.H. Wtlls, Bourke H.

GAS KATE GIVEN ATTENTION
City Affairs Committee Instructed to
Take Increase Up With Corpora-
The Claremore Commercial Club
met at the Sequoyah Hotel Thursday
noon at 12:30 o'clock. R. 11. Wills was
absent in court and Bourke H. Bay-
less, the vice-president, presided. Tho
following business was transacted.
Minutes of the previous meeting
were read and approved.
J. B. Nichols, on behalf of S. B
North, who sold tickets at the door for
the Ladies' Overseas Orchestra, re-
ported that the door receipts were
very satisfactory and altho all of the
receipts had not yet been checked up it
was believed that the Commercial
Club, which is backing the course,
came clear on the number. The next
number is Sarah Mildred Willmer,
dramatic reader, who comes to The
Yale on January 27th.
Moved by Howard Thomison and
seconded by D. Ferrara that James
K. Gardner, 014 East Third, be admit-
ted to membership in the Commercial
A. A. Donnison, on request, discuss
ed the gas situation, the raise of 9c,
from 35c per thousand to 44c, and the
shortage of gas. He said he could see
r.o reason for this raise in rate as the
art'ele was not manufact ired. This
led to the City ,\'fairs Committee, S
C Vinson, -hairmnn, being in*tructml
to take the rva'w-r up w-'h the '"nr-
poration Commission and enter a
protest against, the 9c raise. The
committee was also instructed to in-
vestigate the possibilities of the Foyil
gas field and see if it would not be
possible for the Foyil company to
parallel the line of the Caney River
Gas Company into Claremore with the
idea in view of furnishing the town
with gas at a reduced rate.
The Manufacturing Committee, J
W. Mayberry chairman, was instruct-
ed to also get in touch with the Foyil
gas company an ascertain if it
would not b epossible to bring cheap
fuel to Claremore's door. This would
then give Claremore a lever by which
manufacturing concerns mght be at-
tracted. To date, the town has been
unable to offer cheap fuel so necessary
in attracting big business in the manu-
J. Herbert Moore reported that Mr.
Mooring, of the A. and M., had written
for the exact dimensions of the Iron
Mountain Park with the idea in view
of sending a planting plat for the
same. When ho was here two weeks
ago he promised to do this and also
promised to send one or two horticul-
ture experts from the A. and M. Col-
lege to Claremore to superintend the
planting of the park to shrubbery and
flowers if so desired.
Moved by J. Herbert Moore and sec-
onded by G. D. Davis that the sum of
$250 be raised by public subscription,
$60 to be paid Whitehorn Brothers for
the banners used on the Muskogee
football special, $160 to S. M. Barrett
on the football deficit at the Military
Academy and the balance to take care
of incidental expenses of the Musko-
gee football trip. Carried.
Moved by J. Herbert Moore and sec-
onded by M. Haas that a check for $60
be drawn at once on the Commercial
Club treasury payable to Whitehorn
Brothers and that the $60 be replaced
out of the first money raised by pub-
lic subscription on the football deficit.
Moved by D. Ferrara and seconded
by Howard Thomison that a committee
of three be appointed to help raise
the $250 and that the editor of the
Daily Progress open the columns of
the same for a general contribution.
Carried. Howard Thomison, A. A.
Dennison and J. Herbert Moore were
named on this committee.
Current claims against the Commer-
cial Club were allowed on motion of J.
Herbert Moore seconded by R. A. At-
Communications were read and con-
sidered . One had reference to a com-
pany which desired to build a hotel in
Claremore. The Secretary was in-
structed to write the company to the
effect that Claremore needed an ex-
pensive hotel and bath house combined
—a place that would accommodate the
really fastidious people with plenty of
money to spend for service and frills.
Moved by G. B. Brewer and second-
ed by M. Haas that the Commercial
Club give the State Council of De-
fense its moral support and help in
any way possible during the fuel short-
age crisis. Carried.
G. B. Brewer discussed the drive
for the sale of Christmas seals for the
purpose of eradicating tuberculosis in
the state. The money derived from
the sale of the seals goes to this most
worthy cause. Mr. Brewer is county
chairman. It is un to Rogers county
to raise $850. Claremore's part is
$325. Miss M. M. Nowlin is in charge
of the Claren.ore division and Mrs. A.

onded by G. D. Davis that the Com-
mercial Club endorse the Christmas

tluc here at 7:211 p. m., going south.
This left over this road but one
train each way each day. 103, at 8:30

This Men's Bible Class has been
tnught regularly by H. O. Hurst for
over five vears. Mr. Hurst believes he
has one of the best bunches of men in
lent. He indeed the Rover i Con
Poultrv Show six years ago. when one-
third of the birds were disqualified.
At the present show no birds have been
disqualified, which shows quite an im-
provement in the quality of poultry
shown. Dr. Sledd states that Okla-
I'oma and surroundinp- states produces
as fine noultrv as anv he has seen in
the North and Fast but there is not
enough fine poultry in this nart of the
South to supply the demand.
It is to be regretted that a number
of former raisers of fine poultrv in
Rogers county are no lonrrer exhib-
iting their stock.

INDUSTRIAL GAS TO
A limited supply of industrial gas
from the Foyil field will reach the city
limits near the Frank AUton home
Monday for the purpose of serving the
brick plant, the ice plant, the light
plant, the O'Bannon Company and the
Oklahoma Military Academy. Keith
and associates have laid the line to the
city limits. This is being done and
first service will be secured Monday.
As yet there is not enough gas in
the Foyil field, according to one in
touch with the situation, to supply
Claremore—not nearly enough. And
further it is stated that it is not the
desire of Keith and associates to sell
gas for commercial purposes. They
have the industrial idea in mind and
it was with this idea in view that the
line was laid into Claremore. The gas
from the Foyil field is secured just a
little cheaper than the price of the
Oklahoma Natural Gas Co.

The Red Cross Christmas Seal Sale
for Claremore and Rogers county is
progressing nicely, the sales for the
county being handled principally thru
the public schools under the supervis-
ion of Mrs. A. K. Ross, county school
Owing to the fact that preparations
for the campaign did not begin until
the day the drive started has handi-
capped the sale, but the indications are
that the county will easily go over the
top with her quota before the sale
closes on the first of January.
A silver loving cup has been offered
by th'> Oklahoma Tuberculosis Associ-
ation to the county making the best
showing in the sale, and it is expect-
ed that Rogers county will pull down
thitf prize, although keen competi-
tion is being waged by several other
counties to secure the coveted prize.
Second, third and fourth prizes are
offeree! to the counties making the
next best showingsi—the prizes being
hanelsome banners of beautiful de-
Banners are also offered to the
cities making the best showing, the
awards to be based on the capita ba-
sis, and these prizes are te> b e an annu-
al feature of the Christmas Seal Sale.
Miss M. M. Nowlin, who has charge
e f the Claremore division, has taken
the matter up with the various clubs
of the city who will push the sale of
the little messengers of health.
The Seals sell for one cent each and
purchasers buying $5, $10, $25. $50 or
$100 worth will receive a Health Bond
in proportion to the amount of Seals
Seals are on sale at all of the drug
stores, Martin's News Stand, Thomas

A purchase of 5 cents worth of

you will buy yours now Rogers coun-
ty will have an excellent chance of
winning the silver Loving Cup.
