There is some good work be-
ing done in both the high school
and the public schools this year
and if the patrons will make a
visit to them, they will be pleas-
ed with the promptness in recit-
ations and the splendid discip-
The teachers and pupils are
working under difficulties that
should be remedied by furnish-
ing them better quarters and
such addition to equipment
Mill make our schools comfort
able and convenient as well as a
pride to the community.
Some differences of. opinion
exist that should be settled am-
iacably and for the best interest
of all, and "a pull together”
will give us a splendid school
building. There is no good rea-
son why our high school should
labor in cramped rented quart-
ers, when a new building could
be erected that will place it a-
mong the accredited schools of
To our mind the present school
ground is not the best place for
the building although it has some
advantages and a change of lo-
cation would probably bury the
worst bone of contention. If all
of us will show the proper spirit
of consideration for the views
and desires of others the differ-
ence can be adjusted and the

We Want Your Leases
If we block up some leases,
THb chance increases,
That we get a fair test hole.
Mr. Me Carthy,
Represents a party,
Wanting to drill this hole,
And Father Cox,
Will smack his chops,
When the wheels began to roll.
When we quit drilling,
Our purses will be filling
With the liquid gold.
Don’t get contrary,
Slip off and worry,
.. When we call the roll.
We want your leases,
As the chance increases,
We wan’t you on the roll.
To dig a hole for grease,
It takes the grit
And the olny way to get it
Is with the drillers bit.
Give me your leases,
As the chance increases,
We want you on our roll.

Oklahoma, City. March. 10th.
A “square” meal for the Jews in
Bessarabia, Bukowina and the
Ukraine consists of a thin soup
made of beans and potatoes,
without bread or other “trim
mings,” according to A. D.
Engelsman, of this city, chair-
man of the Oklahoma State
Jewish Relief Committee, which
will conduct a campaign April 5
to 12 for funds to relieve the suf-
fering of destitute Jews in war
The large Jewish population
in the regions, states Mr. Engels-
man, is facing the coming winter
with dread, while the undernour-
ished, underfed children present
a sight that haunts all who have
traveled through the countries.
"To my mind” asserts Mr.
Engelsman,” going to the rescue
of these people ought to super-
cede everything else, and if we
do not immediately make efforts
to save them, thousands of lives
will be lost.
