CHANDLER, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER, 2, 1915.
CHANDLER TO HAVE GOOD
FOOT BALL TEAM.
Much talk is heard among- the
sports of the city concerning the out-
look for a foot ball team this coming
year. After a careful servey of the
situation we are sure that one of the
best teams will be put out in the
history of the school. Most of the
back field men of last year gradu-
ated it is true but' there is plenty of
material left to select from and with
a little experience some of them are
likely to prove to he stars.
Some of the old men who are to
be back this year are, Curry who
played end last year, Staubus who
was a wonder at full. Efaw at tackle,
Smith at center. Escho Westover and
Leo Stinnett. Then there is big Ottie
Moore who should do good wosk in
the line this year. Some of the boys
think Speilberger should get into the
game this year if his work is not too
heavy in school. Willie Mear.s should
make a good man at guard.
Some of the new men expected to
be heard from are Fretwell who at
c.r.e time !.-d fare to make a swift man
at half but retired from the game
last year. He will be in this year for
all he is worth. Dooley is tooted as
one of the swiftest men i nthe state
and he will be pn the field this year
for the first time. He should make
r. good end. Arnold who although
young is one of the stoutest men of
the bunch. He has been working
hard this summer and has developed
muscle that, is bound to count in his
favor. Many exect Dewey to make a
star man. Then there are several
others who have had a little exper-
ience but never have had a chance to
learn the game. Whitey Walley is a
big man and should make some one
work hard for a place on the team.
Tt is reported that Raynor Westover
will he back in school this year and
he should make good in the line. It
looks like Tope would have about
twenty men pn the field to start with
and here is hoping for a swift bunch

One other phase of the book prob-
lem has also presented itself; that of
a public and school library. In look-
ing over the spare library of the high
school some books were found of less
value than their shelf room; "some are
duplications and incomplete m them
selves; while some are the very best
money can buy. But the good sets
and volumes, wisely chosen are far
too few for an up-to-date high school
library such as is badly needed in a
school and town of our size. Our
high school needs a working and read-
ing library of not less than 2,000
volumes. The people who give their
children a modern education owe

dropped. Yet, there is surely a solu-
tion fra* every such problem, if we
really desire to make ours a progres-
sive little city. School Beards are
usually willing to dispose of most of
their funds for the development of the
schools, and no doubt ours will be will-

small; it costs more to live, but the
profits arc- infinitely larger.
Not to proclaim but to do; not to relate but
to meditate; not to preceive greatness but to as-
pire to goodness; not to seek fame but a better
faith; not to assume anything but to hope all
things—this is the humble spirit that gaineth all
things. To prate of past glories, to predict future
ones; to discourse constantly of personal powress,
to search out new ways for self-glorification—this
is to invite disorder, dismay, and defeat. It is
the vanity of vanities, of which cometh naught.
The true spirit—that which loses sight of self
in the pure effulgence of the common good—goeth
even on to greater and more glorious destinies.
Seeking neither notoriety nor reputation, and car-
ing for neither praise nor condemnation, desiring
only and wholly the approval of his own inner
counsel—to such a soul, simple and inornate, grav-
itates iill the goodness and beauty in the universe.
—Harry Krankliu Porter.
THINGS THAT ARE WORTH SEEKING.
Let us learn to be content with what we have.
T ct us get rid of our false- estimates. Set up all
the higher ideals—a quiet home, vines of our own
; lantii a few books full of inspiration of a gen-
ius. a few friends worthy of being loved and able
to love in return, a hundred innocent pleasures
that bring no pain or remorse, a devotion to the
right that will not not swerve, a simple religion,
- rnpty of all bigotry, full of trust and hope and
love—and to such a philosophy this world will give
up nil the joys it has.—David Swing.

Stillwuter, Okla., Aug. 31.—For the
benefit of Oklahoma farmer boys who
desire a course in agriculture, but
feel that they cannot afford to spend
the time and money incidental to a
four year general course, the Okla-
homa A. & M. College has established
a short course in practical agriculture
to cover three years of twenty week3
The course this year will begin Oc-
tober 11 and close March 11. The
time was set with the idea of inter-
fering as little as possible with farm
work. Upon completion of the three
winter’b work the student will be
given a certificate.
There will be no entrance require-
ments to the new course. Any young
man with a common school education
and who is 1(1 years or more of age
can enter the course without exam-
ination. The subjects taught will be
intensely practical and only such ns
are vital to actual farm practice. The
instructors will he the same as em-
ployed in the regular college courses
and the scientific equipment of tha
college will be available to the short

their way, wholly or in part, but
short course students should not count
too strongly on this means of support.
Assistance will be given them in find-
ing work, but this is not always afail-
The influences surrounding stud-
ents at the college are good. Still-
water is a small, college town and has
no pool halls or places of vice.
In addition to the general short
course in agriculture, Ihere are spec-
ial short courses in dairyihg that will
interest many farm boys. A circular

short courses at the college has just

With the nearness of the fiday
of the school year comes a renewed
interest in books. And at this par-
ticular time we are especially in-
terested in Chandler’s books; not
necessarily those used in the schools,
but thosg used in the libraries for
reference work, and the pleasure
promising fiction. With this new in-

The limited number of books on the
book dealers’ shelves have not made
the most desirable showing—these
dealers are not largely at fault. The
books on sale, including the circulat-
ing libraries number about 375. Of
this number 13.6 per cent or 51 vol-
umes are really desirable; such as
most teachers or literary critics would
recommend for us and our children to
read. This leaves 86.4 per cent of the
purchasable books in town partly, at
least undesirable literature. Among
the 51 volumes 6 are histories. By
these better books 32 substantial an-'
reliable authors arc represented. Be

All the grade tachers are taking a
course in penmanship and at the op-

tention will be given to the subject of
penmanship. The Cramer system hn-
been adopted for use in the schools
for the next five years. Our teachers
took a course in the Palmer method
last spring and it was their desire to
continue teaching that method but the
change has been made by the State
Board of Education. The two methods
are very much alike and little incon-
venience will be had because of the

A successful fruit season, its1 the
past one has been, always creates ah
interest in the planting of fruit trees
and vines. There are two periods dur-
ing which planting is done—during
the fall and during the late winter or
early spring. The fall period begins
about August 15 and continues until
October 10 to 20. The spring period
begins about January 30 and con-
tinues until May 1 in Oklahorha.
Where the winters are not cold
enough to damage the nursery stock
by freezing, and there is abundant
rainfall, the fall plantings are usual-
ly found the best. The winter rains
pack the soil about the roots and the
plant is established and ready to
start growth as soon as the weather
is favorable. The late spring plant-
ings are not ready to grow until much
of the most favorable weather is
On account of the dry winters,
spring plantings have usually been
found the most successful in Oklaho-
ma. This is especially true in the
drier western portion of the state.
The dry atmosphere allows the plants
to dry out so much that the plants
are materially weakened. Some are
dead before spring opens and others
die soon after starting growth.
Where one desires to make a small
home fruit planting and can irrigate
the few plants, it is well to try plant-
ing in the fall. This is especially
true of strawberries, as it will enable
one to have berries the following
spring. If the planting does not do
well, the area is not large and the
expense of replan’--g in the spring
is hot great. In this type of plant-
ing the owner Is usually willing to
spend unite a bit of money to gain
time where he could not afford to in
a large commercial planting.
Spring plantings should be made
