"Well you can cut that out. I will

And the way she handled It made
all the region round about sit up. and
take notice. Iter naino was on ev-

our own Oklahoma Kate.
About this time rumors came from

Miss Hartmrd s entry Into the po-
litical arena came alKiut Indirectly
hrouith Samuel Compers. In her
charily work she had noticed that a
very larije proportion of the poverty-
stricken were unskilled laborers who
worked for anything thoy could set.
So she got permission from (tampers
to organize them nto a union of
their own and to stand together for
a hluher wage scale. Work was pro-
cured for many of them on public
Improvements. The standard of llv-
Iiik was raised. Kate nariiard hnd
huihled a political machine wiser
than she knew.
All the while the terrific newspa-
per campaign for Institutional reform
went on relentlessly. Social reform-
ers throughout tho country began to
read this Oklahoma woman's wrlt-
Iiiks. The best was none too good
for Kate Itarnard. The child-labor
evil was one of her chief hobbles.
She asked Crnhnni Taylor tho cele-
brated labor advocate to help lie

U. Henderson professor of sociology
at ChlcnRO Pnlverslty. Got U. Pished

Wheedled .lack London from the tiller
of the "Snark" for a red hot col-
umn. These and many other star
names .shone through the columns ac-
corded to her efforts by an enter-
prising Oklahoma newspaper. They
laughed at her when she requisition-
ed l.uther Hurbank Into the service.
What could a more plant man know
nhout child labor problems? Hut they
laughed better who waited for that
wonderful story. "The Human Plant"
everywhere recognized as a sociologi-
cal classic which this redoubtable
daughter of the plains drew from
the wizard of tho vegetable world.
When after a struggle of years.
Oklahoma at last was permitted to
gaze iiK)ii the glories of impending
statehood. Kate Itarnard was right
at the head of the line for the first
look. An we must have a constitu-
tion she arKiied why not make It
the best there Is? So she set about
with otlmrs to do this very thing.
Hut how? The best export advice
was needed on many points. Tlmt
sort of thing conies high and the
farmers already were grumbling
over tnxes. ' Yes we want the best."
they said "but we must have It
cheap. Iave It to Kate; she'll
find a way.V And Kite did. She
quietly passed the hat nnd got the
Itussell Suko Foundation and others
to "chip In." She combed the coun-
try for the best talent on tho now
famous Oklahoma planks. She got
advice from all the leading special-
ists. The late Samuel .1. Harrows

soclatlon cntne hundreds of miles to
help out on the prison plank. Alex-
ander Johnson secrtary of tho nation-
al charltliM conference was on hand
to direct the shaping of the defective
plunk. A. J McKolwny of the Sago
oundatlon maneuvered the splendid
child labor section. The Hp v. Hast-

work of other model sections. No

point In Miss Imrnnrd's career. Her

obstacle. It was against the organic
law for a woman to hold office. Do
you think that phased Oklahoma?
