MISS ROBERTSON TALKS ONCE
MORE IN NEW YORK CITY
Replies By Congressman-Elect And
Klan Officials Refute Miss
Alice's Wild Clalm.s
LEGION TO APPEAL
Congresswoman Alice Robertson
undertook to explain her defeat for
reelection in iv speech before tie New
York Rotary Club Thursday. She
told the New York Rotarians that the
women of the district and the Ku
Klux Klan turned the trick.
She declared that the klan had
worked against iier end in favor of
W. W. Hastings, democratic caudi-
date, who defeated her. She a'ao
charged that Hastings is a member of
To this statement Congressman-
E'.lcct W. W. Hastings, of Tahlequah
issued the following reply.
"Reactionary stands on all legis-
lation and failure to stand behind
and legislation which her consitu-
ents supported, was the cause of Miss
Alice Robertson's defeat in the Sec-
ond congressional district. The Ku
Klux Klan had nothing to do with
it, in so far as anyone knows.
This is the statement of W. W.
Hastings, representative-elect, who
defeated Miss Robertson by a major-
ity of 13,061 otes in the November
election in answer to a reported state-
ment that Miss Robertson blamed her
defeat upon the activity of the klan,
and accused Hastings of being a
member of the Klan, in a speech in
New York Thursday.
Hastings said that he had never
seen any evidence of klan activity in
the campaign, and had no way of
knowing whether there had been any.
Enumerating the reasons for her de-
feat in her campaign for a second
term, Hastings said:
"She in no way represented her
"She opposed everything the wo-
men of the district supported.
"She voted for the reactionary
"She congratulated Newberry up-
on being seated in the' senate.
"She espoused no farm legislation.
"She failed to get any Indian leg-
"She refused to give former sold-
iers preference in any of her recom-
mendatiodns for appointments.
"She voted for the ship subsidy
"She defended the Harding ad-
"Those are a few of the reasons
why she failed to carry any of the
counties of the district, and even lost
her home precinct by a large major
As a further denial of Miss Robert-
son's extravagant statement, Klan of-
ficials at Oklahoma City asserted
that no interest of any kind had been
taken in her campaign and that she
was not regarded as unfriendly.—
Indianapolis, Dec. 5.—The Amer-
ican Legion will appeal to the con-
fidence of the American people in-
stead of demanding their support in
obtaining justice for ex-service men,
Alvin Owsley, national commander
of the American Legion declared in
a recent address before thS Service
Club, composed of Indianapolis world
'Adjusted compensation has been
sustained not only by the American
Legion membership but by an over-
whelming majority of the American
public," Mr. Owsley said. "It ha3
been authorized by fifteen states
where it has passed by votes of from
two to seven to one."
The National Commander said
that opponents of adjusted compen-
sation had endeavored to create the
impression that the cash feature is
the paramount issue and that the
general public is not sufficiently in-
formed in regard to the other bene-
ficial means of compensation.
"If an ex-service man can find a
home, find a good American girl and
have children, there will be an end
to Bolshevism in this country," Mr.
Owsley said in discussing the home-
purchase feature of compensation.
The land-settlement provision also
would mean much to the United Sta-
tes. the Legion head asserted, inas-
much as it means that thousands of
acres of arid and swamp land would
be reclaimed and made to produce
food for the whole country.
Mr. Owsley pointed out that 50
per cent of the American popula-
tion is concentrated in the large cit-
ies and stated that the adoption of
the land-settlement feature of com-
pensation would tend to draw veter-
ans from the over-crowded cities to
the thinly populated areas of the
country where their efforts are most
needed for future national prosperity

ROCKY RIDGE SCHOOL NOTES
After six weeks of study and ex-
aminations in most every grade, the
pupils of the school known as "Old
Rocky Ridge" are beginning to re-
alize the purpose of school and the
benefits of the game of basketball.
There are on roll at present thirty-
one pupils, most of whom are boys.
Every class from the primer through
the eighth is represented.
The chief attraction of the pupils
and patrons at this time Is the game
of basketball. Much interest has
been manifested on the part of the
entire student body while the team
itself lias exhibited real cooperation
and team work. We have played
three games, and two of them re-
sulted in our favor.
The first game of the season was
playsl with Mt. VJew (East end of
Beaver mountain) on their home
court. The result was a 10 to 7 win
for our opponents. J. Holiday is
principal and coach of the East End
Our second game was on Friday,
December 22, played at Whitefield
with the Whitefield quintet. The
score was 15-4, our victory. The
team showed much Improvement in
this game resulting from constant
The score stood 11 to 0 practically
the whole of the first half. Mrs.
Maud Witcher, principal, gave us a
most hearty welcome and a "square
deal." Mr. Leo Hall, principal of
Rocky Ridge school No. 2, known as
New Rocky, was an impartial referee
for this game.
On the same afternoon our team
returned home and played a return
game with Mt. View. We held the
winning score of a 13 to 8 game. Our
line-up was: Roberts and Hemsle'y,
forwards: Busbee, center; Fuller
and Moore, guards; and Roberts as
A large Christmas tree was decor-
ated last week, and beautiful gifts
hung from its branches. Patrons and
friends gathered at the school on
Friday evening' to celebrate and also
to see the beeming faces of the child-
ren after receiving, their presents.

Boynton's Missouri pivot-pass and

follow-ups here last night and the
state runner-ups of the 1921 season

On the first tip-off Captain Charlie
Sutton of the locals was kicked by a
Keota man and was taken out of the
game with a badly bruised ankle. The

out of the Oylers and the game was
Keota's from the start.
The first half ended 6 to 3 for the
visitors, although the ball was in
Boynton territory two-thirds of the
time. Ogle's passes to the center and
pivot left hand passes was the scin-
tillating feature of the game. For
Keota, Captain Hollabaugh was very
adept in passing and combined with
the Keyes brothers as a feeder to
West who tossed 10 of the vlsltor"s
Both of the teams are of the fast-
est cagers in the state, Keota win-
ting from Boynton last year for thJ
honor of competing with Oklahoma
City for the state championship.
Keota has booked for this season
many big fives in the state and out.
Catholics spent more than a million
dollars in a vain effort to thwart the
will of the people in the state of
Tons of money were shipped into
the state from Boston and the Na-
tional Catholic Welfare league at
Washington, D. C.
More than $2,500,000 was sent to
Oregon from Boston alone. Money
imported into the state was used by
the Jesuits to subsidize the gullible
papers of the state.
The klan did not have the support
of a single daily in the state, The
klan was opposed by Governor Olcott
in every feasible form and fashion.
Olcott is the same duck that won the
republican nomination for governor
by less than 200 votes. He won the
nomination after every Catholic
priest in the state had called special
meetings and told their constituents
to register in the republican party
and vote for Olcott.
In turn, Olcott was defeated for
thi governor's chair by a democrat.
The compulsory school bill passed in
the same election.
The school bill was first brought to
the attention of the people of Ore-
ton by the Scottish Rite Masons. The
Masons stood solidly behind the pro-
posed measure and allied themselves
with klansmen. The bill went over
by a tremendous majority. ig|
In the meantime, Catholics used
every available means known to the
sordid brains of the priesthood to
check the movement for the passage
of the measure.
Catholics Intimidated and threat-
ened the lives of people sponsoring
The campaign was the filthiest ever
staged in Oregon. Personalities were
brought into the campaign and priest
toured the state villifying good Pro-
testant people. Every lie that de-
praved mind of Catholicism could
conjure was dispensed through thy
Catholics have controlled the poli-
tics of Oregon since the admission of
the state into the union. The school
bill fight marked the first real oppo-
sition Pappy O'Hara and Archbishop
Christie have encountered. t
O'Hara is the brains of the papal
machine of Oregon. He sits in the
elaborate club rooms established by
the Catholic church at the University
of Oregon and maps out the policies
of the hierarchy throughout the state.
He was slated to become a regent of
the University at Eunice, but klans-
men and Scottish Rite Masons pro-
tested. His appointment died in the
state legislative halls.
Of a population of less than a mil-
lion people, the state of Oregon has
28 per cent of its voting population
attending Catholic churches.
Priests ordered every member of
the Roman church to subscribe five
dollars, in addition to huge private
subscriptions raised to combat the
move for compulsory education. Th.j
Jews of the state lined up with the
Catholics in the fight against the bill.
A movement is now on foot in the
state to raise funds to fight the bill
through the courts. Thousands of
dollars have already been raised. The
fight is still on and the Masons, the
klansmen and the Knights of Pythias
are the forces that will offset the ma-
licious attempt to thwart the will of
Oregonians Mayfield's Weekly.

Mr. Virgil L. Henderson,
Enclosed you will find my check
for $3.00 in payment for my sub-
scription fo this year, 1922, and next
year, 192 3. I don't know just how
we stand but I think that the check
will cover my account with you, how-
ever, if I am mistaken please let nle
know by returin mail and I will glad-
ly send you another check as I want
your paper to keep coming.
I wish that I could have been at
the Christian Church on December
11th. I read the account of it in
your paper and I will say that I am
very much in accord with everything
that Bro. Davidson said, and I hav
been thinking for a long time that
someone ought to join you and give
writings to the paper as did Bro.
Davidson. Not that you can't hpndla
the situation, but a little help in thai
way all along sure helps out.
I trust that everybody in Haskell
county is taking your paper in sup-
port of your fight for right, and if
this check does not take care of my
account with you don't fail to let me
know by return mail.
We are looking forward to a good
Christmas, and wishing you and your8

Madill, Okla Nearly 100 Ku
Klux Klansmen in full regalia and
several hundred unhooded men in
motor cars paraded through the main
street of Madill tonight led by Dis-
trict Judge George L. Marsh.
A crowd estimated at 5000 wit-
nessed the parade. It was said to be
the largest number of persons ever
assembled in this little Marshall
Sheriff Glenn, who several days
ago requested acting governor Trapp
to retain a national guard detach-
ment here to prevent possible trou-
ble during the parade, tonight said
that he had not anticipated any vio-
lence to himself but felt the presence
of the troopers would have a whole-
some effect on any trouble makers
who might try to cloak themselves
under the klan banner.
