Probably! It was the biggest crowd
thut has attended a picnic at Chicka-
sha In recent yearn out at Shanoan
Springs yesterday when the Trades
Council told everybody to come there
would be something doing. Covered
.wagons were there some of them from
thirty miles away and the ramping
grounds were filled with vehicles and
teams from close around In the coun
try. One estimate placed the crow at
4H.Ht. Some said even more. Mr. Hop-
kins at the Springs said It was about
the biggest crowd that had even been
at the park.
More than that everything went off
smoothly and well. That Is every-
thing but the fat man's race. Oscar
Simpson was entered in this contest.
He was leading the race when he kind
of run amuck went to the ground
fouled Bondurant who was pressing
close for second lost out for money
and lost bis shirt besides. Simpson
says he had the rare In a walk If he

listed merely as "entries." Egbert
Karly the "Popcorn King" was ds-
calred Ineligible to enter as a "fai
man." His girth was but 4 4 inchee.
The minimum was 46.
hTe chief spech of the day was
that made by 8. O Daws former state
librarian who told the men of the
problems of labor and of the solutions
for them. "You must organize" he
said "not to use your organization in
forcing Jinfalr concessions from capi-
tal but In order to be able to obtain
that which is yours by right. It Is
through organization that you must
work too to keep all workmen up to
the maximum of efficiency. Yoi must
remember that the only limit to wages
provided you have an orsanization that
will secure for you what you deserve.
Is the amount that you are capable of
earning. Remember that you can
never receive more than you produce.
Organization should force those for
whom work to give you what you
President 0. W. Austin of the Okla-
homa College for Women was uiiable
to be at the park In the morning so ho
spoke just afternoon. "I know your
problem" he said "I have been a
working man all my life. I have had to
work for everything I possess now. and
2 expect to labor for whatever I may
possess in the future."
The problem he was attempt to
solve yesterday also came In ior a
hrief mention by the college president.
It was how to put three hundred wo-
men in one dormitory that was built
for only one hundred and twenty-five.
Mr. Austin hurried back to the college
immediately after making a short talk.
But one representative of a political
party showed up. That was W. L.
Thurman of Sulphur speaker for the
Socialists. He gave an hour's address
in which he explained the entire Idea
of Socialism. He also told his hearers
what Socialism "was not."
The orations on organized labor were
also declared by the Judges to be ex-
ceptionally good. First prize was won
by Miss Clarice Tatman second by
Cecil Gulihur and third by Dorothy
.Belcper. Prizes were 17.50 $." and
.-.. Judges were Eugene Hamilton

money. Sheppard also too first money
in the potato race. Charles MeClell-
land came out second.
"The celebration was satisfactory in
the highest degree for the Trades
Council" J. W. Duff master of cere-
monies declared this morning. "We
believe every one had a good time and
we know that there was a bigger crowd
than we had ever expected. From a
financial point of view it was very
satisfactory. We will easily "break
even" on the affair. A member of the
committee nil! call on merchants and

On the grounds yesterday in charge
of handling the events were Herb
Powell Ray Whitaker S. D. Phillips
A. C. Hutchinson C. E. Day A. N.
Fear and 0. F. Burke. J A. Sager of
Minco director of the band also spent
the entire time at the park furnishing
mimic at intervals between events.
"Well it would keep us kind of busy
but from a financial point of view we
would like to see a Labor Day every
week I suppose" Chief Phillips said
this morning. "Possibly tabor Day
wasn't responsible for the big end of
Ihe fines collected over the week end.
There were a-plenty of them."
He mentioned casually also the fact
that his men were still looking for
speeders. The books showed $5 paid
by each Claud Erwin H. S. Dagley
Paul Spining Ed Sheegog and Mrs. S
W. Smith of Oklahoma City. All paid
the price for "driving too fast." Dr.
H. C. Antle was dismissed on the
grounds of emergency. He was goins
to a sick patient who needed his atten-
tions badly when the police got him
for going faster than the city speed
Other business was also rather good.
Q. D. Denham was found by Balrd and
Haley carrying a pair of knucks. He
paid $25 for it when he put up $23 and
didn't appear. The police were glad
to get him out of the city. Oscar
Chapel paid $fi for being drunk Char-
ley Crisp paid $25 for being full and
resisting the officers when they ar-
rested him and Bill Johnson drew $15
a similar performance. He is still in
jail. S. D. Gooch was registered as
Just " plain drunk." His fine of $6

Supt. Ramey Says Total is at Least
that Large; Regular Work
Begins Without Pre-
liminaries Two thousand "kids" all the way
from the six-year-olds who were taking
pencil and tablet and primer to the
school room for the first time up to the
supposedly "sedate" seniors in the high
school reported for work at 9 o'clock
this morning. There were no prelim'
inaries. The-forty-eight teachers we-e
on hand uml classes began meeting
at their regular periods.
Today will be the bi day for the
book man and tomorrow real lessons
"Yes there are at least 2000 children
enrolled in the city schools this morn-
ing" Supt. Ramey said before noon to-
day. "We have not yet been able to
get the totals but it is by far the larg-
est attendance we have ever had.
Rooms everywhere are crowded and
classes are up to their maximum size
to retain efficiency." "
"Prospects for the year?" the educa-
tor said. "Yes' we can say that we
have never had better prospects. We
have a school board that recognizes
fully the necessities of the school room
and of the school ground and we have
a population here that Beems to recog-
nize just as fully the necessity for edu-
cation. Attendance is fully up to ex-
pectations and with the corps of ef-
ficient teachers who are beginning
work we have reason to believe we
will accomplish more during the next
nine months than we have ever accom-
plished in an equal period before.
In true bandit style two highway
men held up on alleged gambling
house in the third block on Chickasha
avenue at midnight last night and
aHer forcing the inmates of the place
to turn their faces to the wall robbed
the place of about $400. It is claim-
ed that the men had been playing cards
in the house earlier in the evening and
when the ownesr statred to close up
the men flashed guns and demanded
that everyone hold up their hands.
No attempt waa made to rob the fre-
quenters of the place and nothing was
lost but the money ised in playing
iJie various games which were In oper-
ation officers declare.
Although the men did not wear any
masks they were not known In Chick-
asha according to those who saw them
and it is believed that the men came
here with the express purpose of hold-
ing up the house.
Although the officers were notfied
as soon after the robbery as was pos-
sible no arrests have been made and
the officers have no clue as to who the

With about 150 more women enroll
ed than were enrolled the first day last
year the Oklahoma College for Wo
men opened the year's work this morn
ing. At noon today there were 282 stu
dents enrolled as compared to 115 on
the first day last year. About 200 of

chapel this morning and listened to
addresses by various members of the
faculty the pastor ot local churches
J. W. Kayser of the Star M. H. Shep-
ard. county superintendent and Sena-
tor W. J.' O'Neill.
Mr. Kayser was the first speaker to
address the girls. He gave them a
hearty welcome to Chickasha and
wished that their school work during
the year would be profitable. He stat-
ed that he had talked to a banker this
morning that was pleased at the open
ing of school because many of the girls
bad opened accounts Villi lis bank a
clothing merchant was exceptionally
well pleased because several of the
young men of Chickasha were buying
new suits in fact Mr. Kayser stated
everyone In Chickasha was extending
a hearty welcome to the young ladies.

sembling to outline the school work
which begins iu earnest tomorrow.
It is estimated by the secretary of
the college that the enrollment this
year will reach the 400 mark as com-
pared to 307 last year.
Wj would have had an enrollmtnt of
more than 500 if we could have had
anotlier dormitory to accomodate the
young ladies" stated Miss Miller sec
retary of the college. "Many parents
brought their girls here to attend
school this year not knowing that it
was necessary to reserve rooms in ad-
vance. After finding that it was im-
possible to get accommodations at the
school they took them back home
rather than have them rent rooms
down town. One train carried twelve
girls back home yesterday" stated th?
