BETTER THAN DISH WASHING
Student Find* Occupation of Driving
a Taxi Allows Him Mora Time
for Hit Book*.
The pasftarby stopped beside the
taxicab parked near Br.vant park, re-
mark* the New York Sun. He had
passed the same driver several time*
and had noticed he was reading. Once
It waa Plato’s dialogues, another time
John Huskln's "The Stones of Venice,”
snd now hla Interest was spurred to
the questioning point hy observing the
driver was delving Into Aristotle.
“I'm working tny way through col-
lege," he said. ‘I heard about students
who washed dishes and all that sort
of thing. But taxi driving Is the Ideal
Job for the student. I don’t start to
work until late In the afternoon. I
have a rush at only certain hours.
The rest of the time I spend studying.
You get plenty of time In between
fares to learn the Euclid, the history
of the pyramids, and why Buskin is
dead against too much purple In
painting. I suggest taxi driving any
time Instead of waiting on tables."
Miss Faye Hunn. who has been
seriously ill with intlamation
of the lungs and pneumonia is
much better at present.

Big Time at Fair
The EXPRESS editor and fam-
ily went over to the big state
Fair at Oklahoma City on
Wednesday night of last week
and remained over till Saturday
We visited the Fair on Thurs-
day and again on Friday, and
Saturday went sight-seeing in
the city and did not go out to the
Friday was our biggest day
This was Okla. Press Day. Tne
newspaper folks all met at the
Huckins hotel Friday morning
where the fair management had
established a bureau for the
visiting editors to register. Af-
ter registering they all received
their credentials giving them ad-
mittance to the fair and everj-
thing on the grounds. The edit-
ors and families first went from
the hotel to the Capital Theatre
where they were entertained
with a show till eleven o'clock,
then they proceeded to the
Chamber of Commerce dining
room where a delicious luncheon
was served. After dinner there
were some interesting addresses;
also some good music by mem-
bers of the Dunbar Opera Com-
pany, after which the crowd
scattered and boarded street cars
for the fair grounds w here we
visited the many different shows
that afternoon. As a whole it
was one of the most enjoyable
days that we have yet spent at
the fair. A fellow just simply
feels at home when he gets into
a crowd composed of folks who
follow the same business as him
self even though he is not per-
sonally acquainted with them.
Earl Cranston of the Elk City
Press was the only other Beck-
ham County editor that we saw
pre.-ent. There were nearly
three hundred in the crowd. We
enjoyed the occasion so much
that we expect it will be a rather
hard matter for us to miss at-
tending these press day meets
regularly in the future.
We also had a good time on
Saturday seeing the city. We
first visited some of the large
stores and then boardeef a street
car and went to the state capi-
tal, and went through the build-
ing from bottom to top. Took
some kodak pictures in different
parts of the building. We had
already taken a lot of pictures
from the roof of the Huckins ho-
tel and’in other parts of the city
Before leaving the capital we
went through the Okla. Histori-
cal Society department and saw
the thousands of old curios, rel-
ics etc., which were very inter-
esting. If you ever visit the
state capital be sure and go
through this department.
In the afternoon we went out
to Wheeler Park, a very inter-
esting and pretty place. Here
they have many different kinds
of wild animals, bears, buffaloes,
leopards, lions, llamas, deers
and many others. In this park
is also a very large 'greenhouse
where a great many varieties of
pretty flowers are raised.
