WHISTLES WILL BLOW SAT-

Whistles ip Elk City will blow for
two minutes, beginning at eleven
o’clock, the hour of the signing of
the Armistice of November 11th.
All citizens are requested to pause
during those two minutes as a
tribute to our boys who fought in
the World War.
In fairness to Mr. Finley I wish
to state that this statement had no
reference to Mr. Finley's personal
character but merely had reference
to his political acts and utterances.
I am not and have not been per-
