Reck Island Shopmen Present G. M.Stone
With Silver Service on Eve of
HIM A REAL MAN
Entire Force Gathers in Shops and Listens
to Short But Forceful Presen-
There conies a time in most every
i man's life when he linns nnnseii un
able to express his appreciation for
the things that others do for him.
Such a moment came to G. M. Stone
master mechanic ot the Rock Island
shops yesterday evening immediate-
ly after the men quit work when they
gathered in the south shops and
through R. B. Cooke one of the fore-
men presented Mr. Stone with a full .corporation commission setting out
Eet of Community silverware and ajtnat tne various gin and cotton com-
Shriners emblem. 'nanles through the state named In
The employees learned a few days
ago that their master mechanic would
soon be transferred and to show their
appreciation and the high esteem in
which they held him they circulated
a petition asking each man to con-
tribute a small sum to help pay for
the present that was to be given
Mr. Stone knew nothing of the
plans of the employes and was taken
by complete surprise when he saw . whlch to file their answer to the com-
the men gather about a - temporary 'plaint and were before the commis-
platform that had been erected in
one end of the shop for the occasion.
He was escorted to the platform by
R. B. Cooke who made the presenta-
Just a word about that speech. It
was not a long drawn out affair fill-
ed with high flown adjectives like
some spell binder would make and
which would mean little but it was
a short heart to heart talk mauo in
behalf of strong big hearted men ex-
pressing their sincere appreciation to
one whom they had learned to know
and to love.
"It is an unpleasant duty to speak
lne Parung worus io one wnoui
have learned to know as well as we
have learned to know our master
mechanic" said the spokesman
"Such things come to pass and we
1'ave to meet them as best we can.
want to express our deepest re
gards and love for the man who is
about to leave us. I want to express
our appreciation of the man that you
have Proved to be to us a real man
in all walks ot life; a man in the
shops and out; a man morally men-
tally and physically and I will go the
whole way and say spiritually.

For a moment it seemed that and equipment reasonably demanded
the master mechanic stood as though
he did not know what to say. He
then began: "Gentlemen: It Is be-
yond my power to express my appre-
ciation for the spirit you have shown
here. My career has been as &1I
should be in regard to the men who
work. The man in the higher posi
tion Isn't any better than the man
who works in the shops. That Is mv

I would like to."
As he finished these words spoken
in earnentnoss and sincerity tears
could be discerned in bis eyes.
Mr. Stone has been master me-
chanic over this division for the past
several years and during this time lie
has won the friendship of every man
i in the mechanical shops.
Just where Mr. Stone will bo plac
ed and who will take his place Is not
known as yet. Ho has Jnnt returned
from a short vacation and it was
during this vacation that the trans
fer was made. He has even been
held in the highest regard by the em-
ployes of the Waurika and Chickasha
shops and they indeed consider it a
great loss to have him transferred.
Answers Complaint Made by State; Asks
that Thorough Investigation
To the complaint that was made by
the $tate ot Oklahoma through tho
the complaint among which was the
Chickasha Cotton Oil company an
answer was made Ly the local com-
pany through its attorneys Pond &
Melton stating that the company
was not guilty of tho methods and
practices set out in the complaint.
The complaint was filed before the
corporation commission about fifteen
days ago and each of the cotton firms
mentioned was givn thirty days in
sion yesterday for that purpose
The answer made by the company
shows why no more storage facilities
have been provided an exceptional
spirit of fairness and invites a com-
plete investigation into the compa-
ny's business methods.
jn part follows:
This company says that it has not
iprovided storage for cotton and cot-
ton seed except in emergencies for
the reason that there has been no
demand for such facilities sufficient
to justify the expense thereof in con-
nection with the hazard and labor in-
cident thereto and that to require
gin plants to furnish such facilities
would as this company believes be
unreasonable under existing condi-
tions and hurtful to the ginning In-
dustry in southwestern Oklahoma.
This company says it is not guilty
of the methods and practices set out
in the complaint and it invi'.i s a full
and complete investigation by this
commission of its business methods
and the property and equipment used
in connection therewith and for such
purpose tenders to the commission
every facility at its command. If
the commission should determine
that anv business method or prac-
by the industry in which it is engag-
ed this company will to the limits
of its business and financial ability
seek to comply trlth any reasonable
order of the commission with refer-
ence thereto or which seeks to im-
prove encourage and build up the
cotton and cotton seed industry.
SAMMIES' DINNER SAFE
Washington. Nov. 23. The trans-
port carrying the Thanksgiving din
It's Chickasha and Oklahoma City at
Saratoga Park Tomorrow; Came
Won't Change Standing
HILL SHOULD BE
Has Proved Consistency in All Games;
Is Par or Better With White
Figuiing tho positions of the teams
in the Central conference the eeason
Is over They will finish practically
where they are at this time. There j
may be some changes in the percent
ages which will not affect tho stand-
ings to any extent. Oklahoma City
has the championship put away so
far In cold storage that one of Her-
bert Hoover's agents couldn't find it
with a search warrant
Likewise Shawnee has a firm grasp
on second place whether thore hap-
pens to be any Thanksgiving turkey
or what not. Along the same line of
reasoning Chickasha possesses a
strangle hold on third place and
Strangler Lewis or Gotch In his palm-
iest days couldn't break It. The
field follows. It Is Oklahoma City
"win" Shawnee "place" and Chick-
asha "show" come what may.
On Turkey day Chickasha will
Journey to Oklahoma City to go
through the formality of playing out
their schedule. Not that the home
guard intends to He down and let
Oklahoma City run up a record.
Chickasha will do their double dernd-
est to win that foot ball game. It la
a pretty safe bet that tho locals wl'i
put up one of the hardest battles of
the season against the champions.
The teams will clash at Saratoga
park Oklahoma City at 1 o'clock.
Those wishing to attend from here
may go up on the Frisco in the morn-
ing with the team about 10 o'clock
and get back here on the Frisco at
about 8:25 in the evening.
A little -grief was added to the
woes of Coach Powers yesterday eve-
ning when B. Driskill alias "Blon-
die" Chlckasha's fullback sprained
an ankle. It seems that sprained an-
kles have kept Chickasha down In
the race during the windup. Had It
Dot been for Hill's sprained ankle
Shawnee could not have won th
game on the local lot and they would
have given tho same team a close
run for the money at Shawnee. Hill
will be in the game Thursday as fit
as he has been this season. This
means that Chickasha will put up a
battle. T. Riddle will go In at full
if Driskill'e ankle will not permit him
to fill his position. The remainder
of the team will line up as usual.
At the end of the season It is al-
ways customary to pick an all state
team. For all practical purposes one
could grap off a pretty medium boil-
ed aggregation by simply signing the
entire Oklahoma outfit. They are
good enough to win games most any-
where. So they have clearly demon-
strated to the satisfaction of some
five teams in the state this season.
However there is a lad in Chicka-
Fha " ho deserves a place on that all
state eleven. His name is Hill and
he is familiarly known as "Dutch."
For the information of a few benight
ed folk it may be necessary to men- they will report to Leon Springs for
tinn that he plays right half for the further orders.

White of Oklahoma City is a pow -
erful back. It Is seldom that a high
school ever develops a bettor. Also
Graham ot the same team Is a won-
der. But they uro playing behind
the best clinrgn lire In the state. A
cripple could grab off some good
gains behind that line. So there-
fore when Hill gets up and tears off
gain after gain in np!l of that
charge line which Is as good on tho
defensive as It is on tho offensive it
then becomes necessary to Btep out
and band this Hill party the laurel
wreath over somebody. It one or two
accidental galnB had been made by
Hill good for a touchdown or so it
would not bo right or proper tu sori-
ously consider him. But Instead of
that Hill has gained consistently on
every team In tho conference this

opposition wide open and gone on to
touchdowns alone. And nil this des-
plto the fact that eleven men on
every team he played against have

Verily verily if Hill doesn't get a
place on the all state eleven this year
it would be Just ns woll to turn tho
Germans loose on Paris as a climax
to the established tact that there is
no Justice In all tho world.
Teachers In the Grady county
schools began leaving for Oklahoma
City today where the mooting of the
State Teachers association will con-
vene in annual session tomorrow.
Great interest Is manifested in tho
meeting this year as some very im-
portant matetrs are coming up for
consideration. The principal ques-
tion that will be brought before the
teachers will be the proposition of
discontinuing the state meeting and
substituting in Its stead what la
known as the California plan. The
California plan is to have district
meetings Instead of state meetings
and thereby Incur less expense to tho
teachers and consume less of their
Just how the Grady county teach-
ers stand on the proposition is not
known. County Superintendent Shep-
ard has been appointed as chairman
of the resolution committee. This
committee plays an important part
in the plans that will be pursued by
the teachers for the coming year.
