aha yesterday aftornoon.
Thn town almply laid off and did
the thousand and one things there

picnic. It waa staged In the beau-
tiful woodland pasture on the 3. S.
Browno farm near Lucllo and from
the lima the boys hit camp In the
early aftornoon until the last truck
load of yougslcra had left thogrounds
there whs not an Idle minute.
Tim work of the transportation de-
partment under the direction of
Henry Stephenson waa one of the
f futures of the day. More than 100
automobiles and trucks were used In
the job of gutting tho boys to the
grounds and returning home. Car own-1
or of Chickasha as well as busl-
ness firms responded nobly to tho
call for volunteers.
Jim Tenipluton bos' work com-
mittee chairman of Itotary stated
this morning that as near as he
could estimate tho guests there were
lir0 boys present ranging in ages
from 18 or 19 (o four or even to a

throughout the aftornoon keeping tho
"little boyB" out of the river.
During tho afternoon a scaro was
thrown into the crowd when it was
