OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER
! PRESIDENT ENDORSES
Guymon just has to have more homes. She must
grow or go backward'. There is no such a thing as a
town standing still. Lumber is cheaper now than it
will be next spring. We speak advisedly. Come and
let us show you the reasons for this condition. We
repeat, build now and save money.

Comfort and Economy
When you buy a heater, you want real com-
fort, steady, even heat and a genuine saving in
fuel. Think of these facts when you decide
what heater to buy.
The Riverside Hot Base
It Heats From the Base"
This is the only successful type of soft coal
stove that heats from the base—like a hard coal
base burner. It also heats the draft air before it
is delivered to the fuel, causing a hotter and
longer lasting fire than cold draft air does.
Keeps Fire Over Night
The long, cold winters ah«"ad will not trouble you when you have a Riverside Hot Bate
Heater. It bums hard or sott coal or wood.
Come in and examine the genuine goodness of this heater. See the way it is put together,
the "wholly different" principle < i its construction. Then you wiil know why we unhesitating!*
offer it to you as a dependable and high-class heater.

1! THE RED CROSS CALL
11 Washington, Oct. 25—As National
jg President of the American Red Cross,
1 j President Wilson today in an official
jj | announcement formally endorsed the
Third Red Cross Roll Call, Nov. 2 to
11. The announcement follows:
"As President of the United States
and as President of the American
Red Cross, I recommend and urge a
generous response to the Third Red
Cross Roll Call which opens on Nov-
ember the second with the obser-
vance of Rer Cross Sunday and ap-
propriately closes on November the
eleventh, the first anniversary of the
signing of the Armistice.
Twenty million adults joined the
Red Cross during the war, prompted
by a patriotic desire to render service
to their country and to the cause for
which the United States was engaged
in war. Our patriots should stand
the test of peace as well as the test of
war, and it is an intelligently pa-
triotic program which the Red Cross
proposes, a continuance of service to
our soldiers and sailors who look to
it for many things, and a transfer-
ence to the problems of peace at
home of the experience and methods
which it acquired during the war.
It is on membership more than
money contributions that the stress
of the present campaign is laid, for
the Red Cross seeks to associate the
people in welfare work throughout
the land, especially in those commu-
nities where neither official nor un-
official provision has been made for
adequate public health and social
It is in the spirit of democracy that
the people should undertake their
own welfare activities, and the Na-
tional Red Cross wisely intends to
exert upon community action a stim-
ulating and coordinating influence
and to place the energies of the or-
ganization behind all sound public
health and welfare agencies.
The American Red Cross does not
pimpose indefinite prolongation ©f
its relief work abroad, a policy which
would lay an unjust burden upon our
own people and tend to undermine
the self-reliance of the peoples re-
lieved, but there is a necessary work
of completion to be performed before
the American Red Cross can honor-
ably withdraw from Europe. The
Congress of the United States has
imposed upon the Red Cross a con-
tinuing responsibility abroad by au-
thorizing the Secretary of War to
transfer to the American Red Cross
such surplus army medical supplies
and supplementary and dietary food
stuffs now in Europe as shall not be
required by the Army, to be used by
the Red Cross to relieve the distress
which continues in certain countries
of Europe as a result of the war.
To finance these operations, to
conclude work which was begun dur-
ing the war, and to carry out some
comparatively inexpensive construc-
tive plans for assisting peoples in
eastern Europe to develop their own
welfare organizations, the American
Red Cross requires, in addition to
membership fees, a sum of money
small in comparison with the gifts
poured into its treasury by our gen-
erous peoplejduring the war.
Both the greater enduring domestic
program and the lesser temporary
foreign program of the Red Cross de-
serves enthusiastic support, and I
venture to hope that its peace-time
membership will exceed rather than
fall below its impressive war-mem-
bership." WOODROW WILSON,
J. A. SHAHAN. Manager.

STATE READY FOR
RED CROSS DRIVE
Oklahoma is rounding into splendid
shape for the opening of the Red
Cross roll call membership drive Nov-
ember 2, according to J. F. Owens,
state director of the campaign.
"The enthusiasm with which this
drive has been received has amazed
me." Mr. Owens said. "We had
feared that we might encounter a
feeling of apathy, but we have found
the people of Oklahoma ready and
willing to do anything for the Red
Cross. The spirit in which the state
is answering the call for memberships I
speaks well for the work which the
Red Cross has done."
The state has been organized down '
to school districts for the Red Cros?
drive. Jl house to house campaign :
in which memberships will be solic-
ited will be a feature of the campaign
in every county of the state. Okla-
homa's quota is 100,001.200 member-1
ships, but state leaders are striving i
to beat this quota.
IN WATER TANK
The two-year-old baby boy of Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Pack of three miles
northwest of Texhoma, drowned in a
galvanized tank of water last Sunday
afternoon. Just how it occurred is
not definitely known. Mr. Pack was
in the field on horse back making an
inspection of his crop. Mrs. Pack
was in the house and the other chil-
dren had gone on a little picnic.
When Mr. Pack returned from the
field he rode to the tank to water the
horse,Nand the horse scared at the
body in the tank. Mrs. Pack said
that the children had been out of the
house only about fifteen minutes.
Some small colored blocks were
found in the tank and it is thought
that the little fellow was making ef-
forts to get them when he fell in the
tank and the water being cold surely
caused strangulation at once.
Funeral services were conducted at
the home by Rev. Strickland, Monday
at 2:00 p. m. and the body was laid
to rest in the Texas Cemetery.
The Packs, it seems have had far
more than their share of trouble and
misfortune during the past few years.
It will be remembered that they lost
several children with scarlet fever a
few years ago, at which time Mr.
Packs brother and entire family ex-
cepting one little girl, died with the
disease, and this horrible accident
adds much to their sorrow and grief.
They have the heartfelt sympathy
of the entire community.—Texhoma
LIKES OUR HIGH
While at Guymon Friday we had
the pleasure of going through the
Guymon High School building, and
for a town the size of Guymon we
want to say it is a dandy. It is in
every way superior to the buildings
here and shows that we have not been
keeping pace with our neighbors in
the matter of school buildings. How-
ever, it is not exactly the kind of a
building Liberal should have. While
we hope to see a building here which
will settle the building proposition
for the next ten years, we should like
to see it so constructed that it would
be possible to add to it if necessary
when that time shall have elapsed and
more room is needed. The matter
of the style of building erected
should have careful consideration.
It will not pay to hurry too much in
this regard. We should build with
the idea that Liberal will continue
growing at the same rate the next ten
years as it has in the past, and plan
to take care of the students at that
time as well as for the present.—Lib-
Every day we hear of new business
ventures that will open up in Spear-
man in the next few, weeks or as
soon as the railroad can bring in the
material and supplies. Every line of
business will be represented there in
a short while and the man who ex-
pects to get in on the ground floor
must get a hustle on himself. Ralph
T. Bucy is kept busy these days lo-
cating the corners of lots for busi-
ness men, who will begin building as
soon as the material arrives, and re-
ports that new applications for busi-
ness and residence lots are coming
thick and fast. Spearman is destined
to become one of the best towns in
the southwest. Track laying on the
main line of the railroad was finished
Thursday and the crew is now put-
ting in the "Y" and switches. A
depot agent will arrive early next

ment Co. of Texhoma, left the first
