Miss Eula Kendrick,
Wins county medal.
In the Educational Contest,
held ill Cordell Saturday, Miss
Eula Kendrick of Colony won
first prize for Wushita Co. in
the eight grade. Now Eula can go
to Okluhoina. City, to compete
for the State chainpiousbip. If
she goes the County bears all
ex pen si.
The contest wns^very exciting,
in the first trial there were sever-
al who spelled all words correct-
ami they were compelled to spell
several times before a winner
could be picked. Eula finaly
winning bv a perfect score, not
having missed a word.
Eula is now wearing the county
Medal, which she has just reason
to he proud of, for it is no easy
task to spell over 200 words in a
The fourth grade contest was a
long one, they spelling about two
hours, a large number spelling all
fourth grade words then were
given the third grade words,
none of them hud reviewed these
words and missed them. How
ever Colony got 2nd and 3rd in
the 1th grade Reginal Eby getting
2nd, and Roe waucliope 3rd.
In the third grade sixteen con-
testants spelled ail the words in
the third grade work correctly,
then they took 2nd grade words,
until the winners were picked,

The contests in arithmetic
were very unsatisfactory as the
judges seemed to pay no atten-
tion to certain contestants, and
when they announced an answer
they never noticed, their teachers
protested but to no avail.
Mr. Riley Haws who represent-
ed Colony in Stli grade arithmetic
never found out where the contest
was held so could notenter.
Roe Waucliope was to enter the
races, but they had the races and
arithmetic at the same time, so
he could not enter.
Before they hold another con
test they should try and give all
an equal chance, which we are
told they did not have this year,
and at least have some one, who
can see that all can enter their
events, or publish the places in
which each contest is to he held.
It is easier to make prepara-
tion for a county contest than to
make excuses after it.

Cordell Refuses to Play
Arrangements had been all
made for a hall game between
Cordell and Colony ball teams at
Cordell last Saturday. The Colony
team went over there and were
told that the game would be held
in the afternoon.
Rut after the boys had doued
their suits and were ready to
play, the Cordell hoys refused to
We understand tliut the game
was not matched as a sc liool game
hut just a game between town
teams. We arc at a loss to know
why the Cerdell hoys showed the
“White feather” in this way.
Ron, reading in war news
about the missiles of death--
Hay, pa, what i« a missile?
Father- -A missile, my son,
is anything thrown either from a
gun, a how, or by hand, like a
bullet an arrow or a hand grenade.
Ron--- But what is it, pa,
when it hits? Is it a liittle?

a dish of prunes when it comes
to slang. The Big Squeeze bawls
me out to n fare ye well, and I am
in Dutch from the time I come on
tin1 job till haying time in the
evening. Kids! get wise, dish it
out straight. No slang for yours
truly, cut it out, nothin’ to it.
