-Dear Aunt Alice—Will you give

Bonus Bond J.ssue? .
This is a political scheme to get
votes for Mayor Walton.
I heard a soldier boy say that if it
had been proposed to give them
say, fifteen or' twenty dollars . a
mqnth for the' period of enlistment
that the.people would have voted for
that, but they could! not and would
not vote for a bonus of fifty dollars
a month. " ‘ ....
I 'do not belifeve' the corporations,
bankers, oil. interest, railroads and
coal- operators would have this to
pay.' ' . .. .
• I believe the tux would and should
fall on alt alike and I do not believe
we eftn pay it even if we do want
to do something for the boys to
show that we are grateful.
Fifty millions is a lot of money
and when this is apportioned. to the
seventy six counties of Oklahoma,
just figure what our part would be.
I believe we will soon vote bonds
for hard surfaced roads.
Cap we pay the debt?
