new state is invited to take his
wife, sister, mother and sweet-
heart to the annual meeting.
On the evening of May 15 a
musicale, banquet and ball will
be given at the Elks home. Just
after lunch on May 16 an auto-
mob.le ride to Fort Reno and
Darlington will be a treat that
all will appreciate. At 8 o'clock
on the same afternoon the Okla-
homa City chamber of commerce
will use a special train to convey
the editorial party to Oklahoma
City, where the guests will be
entertained in a splendid manner
during the remainder of the
afternoon and evening.
Some of the best writers and
speakers in the new state will be
heard and it will pay every editor
to be present.

anticipated by the club in the
pursuance of this course of study.

from the legislative comn itteein

carry out this measure. The
subject for study was "India."

"Buddha and Brahminism," by
Mrs. L. C. Tidball; "Caste," by
Miss Alford and "Mythology,"
by Mrs. G. W. Burford, were
read and discussed by the mem-
