It. H. Mathews of McAlester will in
all probability present the results ot
the probe conducted by a special com-
mittee in the lower house of the legis-
late early this week. Before It was
decided to adjourn the house over Sat-
urday solons and Interested officials
expected to hear from the committee,
which lias been investigating things in
general around the capltol.
The deficiency bill, drawn by the ap-
pioprlatlons committee of the senate
appears on the calendar of that body
for consideration Monday afternoon
This lb one of the Important bills of
the session and will be one of the
hardest fought. Both majority and
minority leaders, have declared for
the cutting down of appropriations
and retrenchment moves are anticipat-
Three hundred, twenty-three thou-
sand, three hundred eighty-six dollars
Is the sum named In the appropria-
tion bill. In spite of the fact that
leaders on both the republican and
democratic sides of the senate are ex-
pected to espouse the curtailment of
government operating expenses, the
bill, it is believed, will prove a party
issue before it has been disposed of.
A repetition of Friday’s fight over a
$6,000 appropriation on which horns
were locked, will be in order If a party
war cry is sounded.
Hospital Bill May Appear.
Consideration of the soldiers' hos-
pital bills is expected almost with cer-
tainty soon In both house of represen-
tatives and senate. The emergency
relief measure, providing for leasing
the tuberculosis sanatorium at Clinton
to the federal government for a sol-
diers' hospital, is expected to be pass-
ed almost unanimously. A technical
fault in the bill’s title, as presented in
the house last week, led to reconsid-
eration of the vote taken on it, and
the house will not take the matter up
again until after the senate has sent
it over, according to house leaders.
Opposition To $800,000 Bill.
For the passage of the general sol-
diers’ relief measure, appropriating
$800,000 for building a hospital in Ok-
lahoma City, greater effort will be re-
quired, leaders in both branches ad-
mit. Strong opposition to the bill Is
expected. It will be considered In the
house very soon, it was predicted.
Suporters of the bill said they were
confident it would pass.
Co-operation of the state with the
federal government in establishing a
trades’ school is proposed in the bill
of W. O. Pratt of Roff. Pontotoc coun-
ty, which the house of representatives
probably will vote on this week. The
bill as it stands on the house, calendar
ni*w carries no appropriation, but a
companion bill providing about $160,-
000 to establish the school is to be in-
troduced, Pratt said. Tie bill pro-
yides the school shall be located at
Roff on land provided by the town.
Federal aid can be obtained to equal
the amount appropriated by the state,
Pratt said. The school will provide
practical Instruct'on in about twenty-
five different trades, specializing In
mechanical and building crafts, ac-
cording to the plan. It Is expected In-
tensive work will enable students to
become masters of virtually any trade
In one school year, Pratt said.
"The original appropriation would
be to provide for buildings and main-
tenance for the first year,” said Pratt.
"Except for one administration build-
ing, a costly plant would not be es-
sential. Money from the federal board
of vocational education would relieve
the state of much of the burden of
support. The school fs planned to
turn out thoroughly trained and ef-
ficient tradesmen, Buch as no school
in the state provides for now.”
The bill is one of a very small num-
ber in this legislature that proposes
to establish new state institutions.
Report of the special committee ap-
pointed to investigate the state board
of control of eleemosynary institutions
was read, dealing almost entirely with
the proposed removal of the state in-
dustrial school for girls from Okla-
homa City to Tecumseh, and the bouse
directed that the report be printed be
fore action should be taken on It.
Passage of the emergency appro-
priation of $35,009 for the state school
for the blind at Muskogee and of the
hill Increasing district and superior
court judges’ salaries from $3,000 to
$4,000 a year by the house of repre-
sentatives Tuesday made the day
particularly successful for W. E. ’Jis-
ney of Muskogee, one of the authors of
both bills and an active fighter against
the opposition both measures received
in the house.
In committee of the whole, W. E.
Disney of Muskogee presiding, the
house Thursday recommended that
five bills should pass and that two
should not pass, as follows;
The house adopted resolution No. 18,
introduced Wednesday by C. L. Tylee
of Okmulgee, asking Governor Rob-
ertson to submit a budget bill to the
legislature as provided by the budget
New resolutions were adopted, pro-
viding for Investigation of oil pipe
line companies and giving power to
summon witnesses to the special com-
mittee Investigating lobbying in con-
nection with the chiropractic bill.
The house voted unanimously to ac-
cept the Invitation extended by the
Chamber of Commerce of Oklahoma
City, through Governor Rober'son, to
a ball In honor of the legislature to be
be on February 8.
From Governor Robertson was re-
ceived financial data on the state bud-
get in answer to the request made in
resolution No. 16.
Among bills passed by the senate
w-hich were received by the house on
Thursday were the farm products
warehouse bill and the highway de-
partment emergency appropriation
The senate passed the farm prod-
ucts warehouse bill Thursday. The
measure went through without amend-
ment to the appropriation clause.
But the senate voted the Glasser
amendment down by a vote of 26 to
18 and then approved section 17
which contains the appropriation
The upper house also passed a bill
by Charles E. McPherren and nine
others which makes a supplementary
appropriation of $185,000 to promote
and improve rural schools.
Toward the end of the session bill*
were introduced by Senators Harry
O. Glasser of Enid, E. P. Hill of McAl-
ester and S. Morton Rutherford of
Muskogee, seeking the abolishment of
the state schools at Claremore, Ton-
kawa, Miami, Wilburton, Warner,
Lawton and Tishomingo.
The house re-submitted to commit-
tee bill No. 9, permitting municipal or
ganizations to grant leases of land
for oil and gas development.
Governor Robertson submitted a list
of deficiencies created by his consent
since the special session of the legisla-
ture in 1920, In answer to the request
made upon him by house resolution
Speaker Schwabe signed two bills;
No. 75, Increasing the salaries of dis-
trict and superior court judges and
No. 94, relating to compensation of
county commissioners for supervision
of road and bridge work in certain
In committee of the whole, S. D.
Bailey of Snyder, Kiowa county, pre-
siding, the house Thursday recom-
mended that three bills should pass,
as follows: Senate Bill No. 94, relat-
ing to the pay of county commission-
ers In Muskogee and Okmulgee coun-
ties; Senate Bill No. 87, authorizing
the appointment of a deputy county
assessor in Noble county; Senate Bill
No. 35, creating a board of examiners
to license chiropractors and providing
regulations for them.
Two bills were withdrawn by their
authors; No. 160, by Matthews, being
the old chiropractic act passed by the
sixth legislature and repealed by ref-
erendum vote, and No. 41, by Salter,
Davison and Pratt, being identical
with Senate Bill No. 35, dealing with

jygRS. ALICE CRESHAM DODD,
mother of the firet American
eoldier killed in Franoe, who gives
entire credit for reoovery of her
health to the well-known medicine
The following remarkable endorse-
ment of Tanlac was given recently by
Mrs. Alice Gresham Dodd, at the
Gresham Memorial Home, Gavin Park,
Evansville, Ind., which home was pre-
sented to her by the patriotic people
of Indiana, as evidence of their appre-
ciation of the services rendered to his
country by her son, Corporal James
B. Gresham, the first American soldier
killed In France. Expressions of sym-
pathy were received by Mrs. Dodd
from all parts of the United States,
and the newspapers of the country
carried the story of the first "war
The shock of her son’s death re-
sulted In the serious breakdown of
Mrs. Dodd’s health, but everyone will
learn with Interest and plensure tha»
she is now in splendid health again.
When seen at her home recently she
made the following statement, giving
the entire credit for her recovery to
the well-known medicine, Tanlac.
“After my dear boy’s death I had
a general breakdown In health,” said
Mrs. Dodd. "At first It was Jnst In-
digestion. My food used to upset me
and I had to diet myself very care-
fully, which wasn’t much hardship,
as I lost all desire to eat. Then I had
an attack of rheumatism, with severe
pains in my shoulders, back and arms.
Sometimes I used to suffer a great
deal, and my Joints would get all
swollen up and stiff. I was able to do
very little about the house, and at
times couldn’t even cook a meal. I
got very nervous and restless, and at
night would lay awake for hours, and
lost many a night’s sleep as a conse-
"A friend of mine had received a
great deal of help from Tanlac, and
It was she who advised me to try It.
I am so glad I did for it proved the
best medicine I have ever taken. It
soon gave me a good appetite and
seemed to settle my stomach so that
I was no longer troubled with indiges-
tion. I don’t know what It is to have
rheumatic pains now, the swelling nnd
stiffness has all gone out of my
Joints and I am able to do the work
of the house with the greatest ease.
My nerves are now steady and strong.
I sleep fine at night, and I feel better
In health than ever before In ray life.
I shall always be grateful for what
Tnnlac has done for me, and shall
recommend It every chance I get.”

SHOE PRICES AT
LAST HIT BOTTOM
A sharp decline of from one to three
dollars per pair on their entire line of
work shoes, has been mnde by the
Harsh A Chapllue Shoe Co.. Milwau-
kee, makers of the well known Ll6a
Brand Work Shoes for men nnd Lion
Brand Everyday Shoes for boys.
"The greatest progress in American
business during this generation, has
been In factory organization,” says
Geo. R. Harsh. President of the com-
pany. “The problems of production
have been met by experts who have
brought the cost of manufacture to a
lower figure every year.
"But how about selling costs? The
expenses of the manufacturer's sales-
men have mounted steadily—the Job-
ber must still have Ills discount—and
the storekeeper his.
“The best and quickest way to re-
duce prices Is to reduce selling costs—
by cutting out Hie unnecessary profits
between manufacturer and consumer.
By selling Lion Brand Shoes direct
from the factory, and confining the
entire profit from maker to wearer to
one small profit, we cun offer first
quality work shoes to the public at
very low prlt'es. For example, our No.
76 Brown Blueher, with bard toe cup,
made of Lion Brand Lent her (our own
tannage) In regnlur sizes, U to 11, Is
now being sold by mail on receipt of
money order, draft or buyer’s own
check ut $3.35. This shoe formerly
sold through I lie stores as high us $0.50.
“It was only ufter long and serious
deliberation Hint we decided to go
straight to the public with our product.
In the past firteen years, through 15,000
deulers, we have sold 10,500,000 pairs
of work shoes—over $0,000,000 worth
Inst year alone. The only way open
to us to get Lion llrund Shoes to the
wearer at u fair price, was to drop our
Jobbers mill dealers and sell by mull.
Catalog No. X Is being distributed from
our factory nt Hanover and Maple Sts..
Mllwuukee, Wisconsin. Shoes shipped
