publications for El Reno high

manuals recently adopted by the
Oklahoma Highway Patrol, ex-
pressed the opinion that America's
highway accident rate would con-
tinue to become worse for some
time, in a talk Tuesday evening
he gave before the El Reno Busi-
ness and Professional Womens
club in the Wesley Methodist
church. He told the group that
the general public would have to
undergo quite a change in attitude
toward safety before any actual

Is Operating in County
Sheriff Raids Club, Alleged Bootleggers,
But Says No Incriminating Evidence"
Canadian county sheriff Tiny Rovse, who on nu-
merous occasions has gotten an unsolicited helping hand
irom Oklahoma City newspapers in exposing this county’s
liquor joints and so-called sin spots, again found himself
in the midst of a furor over the weekend, as an Oklahoma
t ity paper headlined a story about a couple of bootleg-
gers and a big time gambling hangout which they claim
were operating just inside the Canadian county line and
mil of the jurisdiction of the “long arm” of the Okla-
homa county law.
The places tabbed the “hall
mile ol sin” by the newspaper
article, are located along the
northwest highway just inside the
Canadian county. The news story
said that reporters had heard of
the places and went out Friday
night and Saturday to learn if
there was any truth to the rumors.
The reporters tried, without much
success, to enter the Saddle club,
a private club located a half mile
inside the county line on the
northwest highway and one-half
mile north. The reporters said
that they were greeted by two
well-known Oklahoma gamblers
and told through the front door’s
peep hole that they could not
come in because they were not
members. The paper said that

and he told them that he would

cooperation of the state crime
bureau lor a raid. Before any
such raid went off, Sheriff Roysc
turned up at the club with’ a
search warrant to conduct his own

quizzed Royse about results of the

found nothing to indicate that
there was any gambling going
there. He said that he only found
