OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA., THURSDAY*
Inasmuch as our esteemed but
hardly contemporaneous friends,
The Leader, The News, The Times,
Clotheslines and The Oklahoman do
not hesitate to copy some of the
ideas which we’ve copied from oth-
ers, there can be no harm in just
once taking theirs. F*r instance
(as Stanley Heyman would say):
to the reader who identifies the stars pictured in this Gravure layom^(Hvpnfc
Gravure illustration is that of a star who is to appear next week on the sciefUH of
stage in Oklahoma City, excepting Margaret MatzenaueT and Florence Macbeth of
the Metropolitan and Chicago Opera Companies, respectively, who come here later
on concert tours.
You do not need to cut them out—simply indicate from left to right, top to bot-
tom who the stars are and if your list is the first correct (or nearest correct) one
received before Tuesday night, we’ll send you $5.00.
Write on one side of paper only and address Gravure Editor, The New Advance,
P. O. Box 777.

view of the fact that last week The
Oklahoma News announced a sim-
ilar contest. Most of The News en-
tries published thus far have been
from out of town and as their win-
ner for the week has not yet been
announced, it can not be ascer-

I saw a well-dressed but orderly
young boy of seeming good health
approach an elderly but shabbily-
