The program given at the opening
chapel at the high school auditorium
Monday morning was in keeping with
the usual standard of opening chapels
of P. H. 8.
Supt. Creekmore addressed the
students for a half hour upon the
subject "Importance of Education.”
Rev. Alexander of the M. E. church,
offered the invocation and read the
scripture lesson. The members of
the board of education were present,
G. E. Hendrex, clerk of the board
giving a short address.
The teachers were then Introduced
one at a time, and each In turn ex-
pressed delight at being fortunate

The Republican regrets that It was
impossible to have a representative
at the chapel service o give It the
writeup It deserves. We have had to
.depend upon second hand Informa-
tion to give an account of the affair.
A number of the local republicans
went to Vinita yesterday to hear
“Teddy Jr.” and Raymond Robbins
apeak. The speakers were taken by
airplane rroni Vinita to Okmulgee,
where they spoke In tbe afternoon.
Rev. R. C. Alexander of the M. E.
church, left Tuesday afternoon for
Adair, where he will assist in con-
ducting a revival campaign for a
week or ten day.
Attorney Harry Seaton went to
Tulsa Monday of this week to attend
n meeting of the Republican Congres-
sional Committee, representing this
Mrs. J. L. Mitchell and Miss Jose
phlns were in Muskogee yesterday.
Tbe delegates representing the lo-
cal Legion post at the state conven-
tion, held at Tulsa Monday an^Tues-
day of this week arrived homi
day—all three of them. The local
post was entitled to fourteen dele-
gates in he convention and up to tbe
last minute, it looked as If there
would be a full delegation. Those
who finally reached the convention
city were Alf Cruian, Merel Chitwood
and Roy Harding.
The main feature of the conven-
tion' -the baseball game between
Tulsa and Wichita—had to be called
off on account of the rain, which
poured down In sheets. The boys
report a mighty Interesting session
Monday morning. It consisted most-
ly of oratory. The national com-
mander did not appear, being detain-
ed to make plans for the Cleveland
Mueh of the credit for the success
of the Legion In Oklahoma has been
due to the efforts of J. C. Chatfleld,
assistant state adjutant, familiarly
known by the boys as “Chat.” and
those in attendance at the convention
cheered noisily at the mention of his
name. A “stunt” was pulled off on
Monday morning, when two police-
men came to the stage and “arrest-
ed” Mr. Chatfleld. He was charged
with "Intent to wed,” and declared
he would cheerfully accept his “life
sentence.” He tfls presented with a
number of gifts by the Legtonalrres
of his local post. Chatfleld Is a per-
sonal rrtend or Clarence and Paul
Wilson of this city, having served
with them in the Rainbow Division.
That it is the sentiment of the
members of be Legion to devote at-
tention to public affairs was evidenc-
ed by the wild cheering that greeted
the remarks of Roy Hoffman of Ok-
lahoma City, who declared that the
ex-service man who regards his
work as having been completed and
who stays out of public affairs Is not
entitled to mueh consideration by,the
nation. Whether or not this will
load to aetive participation In politics
was not determined by the convea*
Uon during the time the writer was
in attendance, but it wps the general
sentiment of the boys (hat the right
of the individual ex-service man to
lake active part in politics should not
be curtailed merely because he Is a
member of the American legion.
An interesting comparison between
the local post and the Vinita post
developed when the report of the
credehtials committee was read. The
Pryor post was accorded fourteen
votes, while only eleven votes were
allowed the Vinita post.
Death of Mrs. Head. <
This community was liyleed great-
ly ahoeked last week to learn of the
untlmoly death of Mrs. Ben Head, at
her home southwest of town. Teh
fuaecal was held at the Methodist
church on Thursday at 11 o'clock
and the remains were Interred In
Falrvlew cemetery in the presence of
a large number or sorrowing rela-
tives and friends.
Eva Lena Curtainger was born
near Pryor, Oklahoma, on June 11,
1898. 8he lived here all her life.
8he was married to Ben Head on
November 12. 1919. To this union
twin babies, a boy and a girl were
born, for whom the young mother
gave up her life, on the 1st day of
Aside from the husband and bab-
ies, she leaves to mourn her death,
her mother, Mrs. I,. P. Curtainger,
a sister,, Mrs. Etta West and three
brothers, Fred, Clifford and Millard
Curtainger, all of Pryor, Oklahoma.
Good Sermon on “Spending Sunday"
A large audience heard Rev. Alex-
ander, of the local M. E. church, de-
liver an excellent sermon Sunday ev-
ening, on "What to do with Sunday”.
It was a sermon on which he had
manifestly spent much thought and
preparation. Rev. Alexander did
not go into detail to number the spe-
cific things that should be done or
should be avoided on Sunday. He
rather built his discourse on the
theme that the admitted importance
of the church in the life of the com-
munity demands the preservation of
the sacred things of the church. He
declared that il we mar tbe "holy”
nature of Sunday by using the day
aa any of the other days of the week
are used, we are contributing to tbe
destruction of tbe beneficial forces
now being upheld by the church.
Card of Thanks.
We desire to thank all the kind
friends and neighbors for their as-
sistance and sympathy during the
last Illness and death of our beloved
wife, daughter and sister. Especi-
ally are we thankful for the many
beantlful floral offerings-
