The men upon whom Chickasba is
depending to bring home the lltlil stale
football championship in tlio high
school class are at work on the Eighth
street practice field In an endeavor
to get the roiiKii edes worn off of
some of the recruits and the old men
back into their stride. Some 2j or ii(j
candidates have reported from which
bunch it is up to Coach (lee to make
a championship machine.
Though the personnel of the team
presents many new faces the weight
is there with plenty of speed distri-
buted among several of the men. What
Is wanting now is systematic training
and everlasting work. l.?pon the men
should descend the realization that it
will not. be exactly like unending a
pink tea to wrest victory from Norman
and Sliawneo this year. Kach wiil un-
doubtedly put out strong teams and
the fact that. Chic-kasha this year will
be the invaders and that both of the
above mentioned bergs -harbor the
same undying love for Chickasha's
football team that a torn cat bears for
a bull dog is evidence that there will
be something going on when they
clash. Both games come rather early
in the season and not a moment Is to
he wasted. Speed and ginger is what
the aggregation needs and what will
have to be developed before the whistle
sends them into the first big ga.ne.

Material for Test on Jones Place
Long Delayed but Expected to
Arrive Shortly Other
Prospectors Busy ' '
Marked activity In the matter of oil
tests in (Irady McClain and Stephens
county is still in evidence and that
the tests are to be thorough is the
statement of the men who are behind
the propositions. Some of the wells
are now in the drilling ot her rigs are
umier construction and the material is
en route to other sites.
Three companies in the Chit-kasha
vicinity that many local people are in-
terested in are the Alberta Oil com-
pany on the Pate Jones farm the Cc-
ineut Oil and (ias company on the
Funk farm and the Ben Hur Oil and
(luti company whoso property is locat-
ed in Stephens county.
The Alberta people have faced some
discouragement in getting their rig
completed. The derrick timbers were
ordered some time ago for delivery
within four days but it was fifteen
days later that said timber was locat-
ed on the siding of the Oklahoma Cen-
tral railway at Ada having been billed
v long and found through the oi foils
of the corporation commission. Two
car loads of timbers and machinery
are now on the ground and the ri.q;
builders are expected here Sunday
with two more cars of casing machin-
ery and other requisites due to arrive
by the' first of next week.
K. K. Hopkins who will have charge
of the drilling stated today that the
rig should be complete and ready for
drilling by a week from net Monday.
The company holds- something over
S'Mio acres of leases and Mr. Hopkins
is authority for the statement that
they will go li.'utl feet or deeper if it
becomes necessary to make the test
The site of the well is but six miles
and one half by wagon road from
Chickasba and but about four miles by

The Ben Hur company with locnl
offices in the First National Bunk
building is making preparations to
begin work in Stephens county at
once. Their first well .according to
Mr. Thornley local manager will be
begun as soon an the material can be
placed on the ground. The first load
of timber is due to leave Duncan next

who has played three years with Lind-

Rush Springs. Of the new material
Ward looks the best who at quarter
would step into Pete Heffner's shoes
without apparent loss to the strength
of the team His work has shown him
to be heady fleet and a good safety.
Williams has a great deal to learn
about the game as his experience has
been limited but he is a willing work-

a terror to all opposing linemen. Ditto

the team a valuable man. He is fast
and looks like die best broken field
runner that has donned football armor
in these parts for many moons past.
(Calm yourself "Satchel!")
Kither to Pool or Ward will fall the
responsibility of handling the team on
Powers is a coiner. He is all nerve
progress constantly until it Is com-
pleted and the machinery is set for
operation. "We expect to go' about
3 TOO feet" said Mr. Thornly "and bar-
ring ill luck should have a test made
within 30 to 50 days. Of course if
bad luck overtakes us after the well is
started caving etc. it wil Jtake long-
er. The test well will be completed
at the earliest possible moment."
Cement Oil r.nd Gas Co.
From the Funk farm where the Ce-
ment Oil and (las company are drill-
ing comes news of work delayed by
accident. They are now drill'ng at
4."il feet after having bad to stop on
account of caving several' times. Men
were in the city today from this well
after a piece of machinery for the
drill and stated that work would con-
tinue. It was understood that contracts bad
been signed up for test wells in the
Blanchard fields but later the propo-
sition fell through because of the fail-
ure of the drilling company to "come
across" It was reported here today
however that Tulsa oil men were in
Chickasba for the purpose oi buying
up leases at Blanchard and It is nn
derstood that another contract for the
drilling of test wells there is now in
the making. Some definite news from
this field is awaited with much inter-

passes and is speedy. Ho will guard

Left end is rather a puzzle. Prob-
ably tlowdy and Heffner will fight it
out for that position If Shannon docs
not return in which event they will
center themselves upon the task of

Heffner may be tried however at half.

said. Whittaker has been pulled from
his position at end and placed at left
half where he is going lo make a star
When in a game "Chink's" middle
name is "Fight" and the occasions are
on record when he has been pulled
from the prostrate form of a foe. Goode
will be at his old position as the plvoi.
Also enough said. Supporting him
right and left will be Wallace and
Sales or Ladd all of whom are husky
youngsters all they need being work.
That Beems to be about all the ad-
vance dope on the gang. It will take
a real game to settle many of the po-
sitions and also demonstrate whether
or not Chlekasha Is to be a strong con-
tender for the state champ honors.
The first game will be played prob-
ably next Friday. All endeavors to se-
cure a game for yesterday were futile
but. an extra week of work will do the
men no damage. The student body
and the town in general are anxiously
awaiting results of the first game and
ihe opener should draw well.

Officials are unable to account r f

his confession of murder which must ;
be corroborated. J
The murdered girl was not fell I
known and unless the head is recover-
ed the state will have no proof that the F
fragments of body recovered are real- .
ly those of Anna Aumueller. j
Schmidt told fellow prisoners that if f
j District. Attorney .Whitman tried tot
get-anything out or him bo would "find
himself up against a stone wall." Here-
tofore Schmidt has been sullen and
quick to admit crimes and charges.
lsnpector Faurot's suspicions of
Schmidt's possible homicide plans j
Vere strengthened by the discovery
among Schmidt's effects of a book or
physicians' death certificates and other
blanks necessary in disposing of the
dead. Schmidt declared these were
only for use in the case of Anna Au-
mueller. He had stolen the eertifl-
catpq from a renitt-itqo jitivjtfiTri tin

best he could.

clues" said Faurot. "Anyone of which.
