CONFER ON TEXT BOO.KS
Gov. Cruce was apain in confer-
ence with the State Board of Edu-
cation, discussing the five-year text-
book adoption which the board mem-
bers have announced would be made
notwithstanding the Governor's re-;
quest that it be deferred until after]
(Jet. 15. Hearings of the book com-
panies closed July 25.
What passed between Gov. Cruce [
and the board is not known. How-1
ever, following the conference, the'
changed his position and he replied
in the negative. No action was tak-
en by the board in the matter of
an adoption, but probably will be.
State Superintendent Wilson said
that the board was considering the
number of books that would be
needed for each grade. He said the
number would be greatly reduced
In reply to an inquiry from Les-
lie T. Huffmann, secretary of the
State Board of Education, as to
whether it would be possiWe for the
board to postpone its adoption of
text books beyond Aug. 15, the date
specified in its advertisements for
bids, the Attorney General's office
has advised him that cash deposits
made by bidders could not be held
beyond that time., but it would be
necessary to re-advertise in case of

The provsion in the schoolbook
contract as repared by the state
board of education requiring the dis-
tribution of books and supples from
a central distributing point has been
eliminated by the Atttomey Gener-
al, to whom the form of contract
was submitted by the board.
State Superintendent R. H. Wil-
son, chairman of the board, in his
letter to the Attorney General ask-
e d particularly that the provision
be left in the contract, but is held
that is a matter for the board to
determine by rules which may be
changed from time to time, rather
than make it an inflexible provision
of the contract.
It is held that the provision for
union label is within the discretion
of the board.
The form prescrbed by the Attor-
ney General for the signing of the
contract may have its bearing on
the controversy between the Gover-
! nor and the board. It reads: "This
contract, approved by the State
i Board of Education and ordered to
be signed on behalf of the State by
the Governor." This is to be sign-

Guhrie immediately instituted a suit attacking the val-
idity of the electon, and lae in the year of 1910 the su-
preme court of the state of Oklahoma held that said
election was void because of a mere technical error in
the ballot title; but also held that it was within the
rights of the people of the state, either by initiative or
an act of their legislature, to locate their capitol where
they pleased and when they pleased regardless of the
1913 provision of the enabling act.
In the meantime, however, a state capitol commis-
sion had been appointed, plans had been selected for a
capitol building, and all arrangements were being made
to carry out the provisions of the initiated bill, except
that certain Oklahoma City citizens further agreed tc
donate the tract of land, wthout the state's appropri-
ating a single dollar. The decision of the supreme
court, of course, rendered null and void the work that
had been done by said capitol commission; but in ac
cordance with that deoision, holding that the people
had the rght to locate the capitol by act of the legis-
lature, Governor Haskell called a special session of
the legislature at Oklahoma City in December, 1910
and this special session of the legislature, in accord

corporated themselves as the State Capitol Building
Company. The only purpose of this corr.nanv being to
hold this land as trustee for the state and tor the va-

state. Immediately after the adjournment of the |eg-

tacking the validity of the act of he legislature, and
losing in the state court, appealed to the supreme court
of the United States, which court rendered a decision
in May. 1911, holding the location of the capitol at Ok-

had been handed down by the supreme court of the
