A copy of one of the strangest docu-
ments ever Issued to a convict le on
file In the office of .1. M. Crook, state
pardon and parole officer. Governor
Williams Is the author of the docu
rueut and it provides that Dr. J. S
Gray, who was sentenced to the state
penitentiary for life on a murder
cliurge, shall have the right to leave
the prison each Sunday and go to Me
Alestor that he may worship lu tho
church of his cho'ee.
The case of Gray Is one of the
strangest In the annals of Oklahoma.
A veteran of the Civil war, in which
he was wounded seven times, a news-
paper man and a practicing physician,
he was for twenty-three yours a rest
dent of Oklahoma It wue after he had
lived his three score and ten years—
had reached the age of 71—that Dr.
Gray fell into the puh that took him
to the state prison.
It was in 1914 that he shot and kill
ed Sii on Cochran, one of Ids tenants
on a farm in Bryar county. Accord-
ing to Gray the trouble which led to
tho killing was caused by Cochran
transporting liquor. Gray's defense
was that he shot in self defense, but
the jury found him guilty and his pun-
ishment was fixed at life imprison-
At the age of 72 he began serving
a life term in the venitentiary. ef-
forts were made to get him a pardon
hut the final result was a commuta-
tion of his sentence. to twenty years,
which was slight sohice for a man 72
Dr. Gray has not missed a Sabbath
at church since he was committed, lie
has gone to all the churches in Mu-

The executive hoard of the Okla-
lioma Association for the Prevention
of Tuberculosis held a meeting here
last week when tentative plans were
•made for the work of the association
■during the coming year. One of the
most, important actions taken by the
board was the decision ?o nold health
surveys in the principal cities of Ok-
lahoma and in several typical rural
districts for the purpose of ascertain-
ing health conditions and what is be-
ing done to safeguard the health of
the people in this stae.
These surveys will he conducted by
an expert who will have the use of
the laboratories and the assistance of
the staff of the state department of
health, also the co-operation of the ex-
tension departmnets of the A. and M.
college and the University of Okla-
homa. Arrangements will likely be
made with the state board of agricul-
ture for an intensive study of the
milk situation in these communities.
It was reported at the meeting that
negotiations are now under way to se-
cure a state supervisor of /public
health nurses who will be stationed
in /"-'ahoma City, Tulsa, Muskogee,
Ju\d, Shawnee and probably Ardmore.
The principal duties of these public
health nurses will be educational, al-
though they will also serve as visiting
nurses. They will organize health
leagues, address clubs, create interest
in favor of school medical inspection,
open air schools and other health pro-
paganda, including modern health cru-
sades among school children.
Another interesting pnase of the as-
sociation’s work within the near fu-
ture will he the establishment of a
chain of tuberculosis dispensaries
throughout the state. It is expected
that such dispensaries will create agi-
ation in favor of establishing sana-
toria and hospitals for the care and
treatment of tubercular persons,
there being at this time no institu-
tions of this kind in this state that
are open to the public.
