Mr. and Mrs. Oakea were in
Gibson, last Wednesday.
The writer was a visitor at Wood-
all last Sunday, and came away from
the place with a better spirit of loy-
alty and patriotic feeling. It al*T
does one good to read in the local
papers of the splendid patriotic ef-
forts pot forth by guch live communi-
ties as Needmore. Liberty, Caney,
etc. Surely, at least a few of our
rural communities are waking up.
•Jr. Leerskov says that the only
remedy to cure Germanism Is an-
nihilation and extermination. lie
says he wants to love hi* enemies,
but the recent atrocltf^s perpetrated
by German brutes an4 reported
by neutral nations convinces h'ta
that such deeds could emanate only
In the dhrlt region of the lower world
and we are not told to love the den-
izens of that place.
The little Red School House !e
coming intp its oww during thesu
stirring times President Wilson in
his recent appeal to tho patriotism of
the farmers and rural districts polsts
to the school house as a source of is-
f pi ration, and loyalty in these Umis
of dire need. Qod pity the com-
munity where this source of help
fails. The little Red School house
must yet save the nation.
And now comes the aeit Red Cross
drive. It appeals to as as but few
calls do. So far as the rural com-
munities are concecned. why not
make the call on the assessment plan.
We have to come to this sooner cr
later anyway. With but few e*cep-
tions, there is not a farmer in Cher-
okee county who cannot without
much, effort pay 15.00 for the R",l
Cross cause, and there Is not a single
man working for gcod wages, who
cannot readily give $2.00. Often he
spends more than twice this amount
on his .Saturday-to-town trips and
spends It often very foolishly. Our
boys at the front are givtng their
health and life for us, and many of
the folks in our outlying communi-
ties wil| never realize the lmportar.ee
and awtulness of our great struggle
until it is brought home in a morn
There will be a pie supper next
Friday night at Union.

Needmore School District Council
of Defense call meeting of April 21st
was a grand succoss. I wish lo
thank the members for the Interest
taken. I criticized rather strongly
the indifference shown in failing tc.
meet as appointed on the 1st Mon
day evening of April. It Is neces-
sary to speak plain some times In
order to arouse people to their duty
and thus suggest the. importance of
their post tlon. Mfcny of us hav^|
taken the making of bur pledges as
a matter of fact, and then forgot it
There is no time for repose now. W'e
'must be on the alert, ottr District
has made too good a showing thu3
far in doing its bit to help win the
war to becoft?> lazy now and slack on
duty and have the finger of scorn
pointed from without. We will meet
again the third Sunday In next
month at 3 o'clock P. m.
