WHO HAS MADE GOOD
For nearly four years, It H. Wilson
has served, as Stale Superintendent
of schools and is now asking to be
continued in this position for a term
of four years more.
His general experience as a school
Bian covers a period of eighteen
years. He has taught In the country
and city schools, lias served as prln
cipal, member of school board and
county superintendent and is familiar
through experience; with every phase
of school activity. He has had the
experience of four years as State su
perintendent, which lias brought him
into close contact with all our Insti
tutions of higher learning and famil-
iarized him with their needs
Speaking of the coming campaign,
Mr. Wilson said
"I shall not, during this cam-
pnign, s;iy or do one thing that
will retli ct upon the personal
character or integrity of any who
may seek this office in opposition
to me, but I do submit that no
other man who will ask for the

Mr. Wilson makes no pretense that
bis administration of the afTairs of the
office is exclusively responsible for
all of this progress; it is the product
of the combined effort of many, and
he gives due credit to everyone who
I has assisted hint in this work. Hut
it Is fair to him to say that this
progress is greater than has ever be-
fore occurred 1n Oklahoma or any
other state during any similar period
of time; that he lias used the lull
weight of his office in bringing it
about; that the policies that he has
] put into effect have helped much and
have not hindered, and that by a con
tlnuation of these policies you may
| expect continued progress for the next
; four years. You take no chance.
