Dove of peace? Huh! It's a
buzzard of death.
They're still scrapping over yon-
der—but what about?
Put sunshine in the home, bro-
thers, and keep it there.
Yea, yes, this is a presidential
year—but not yours, we fear.
It has not been long since we
heard a fellow remark that he
would not take a million dallars for
his religious experiences during the
three days previous to that time.
Some old fool fanatic may say, "Oh,
well that fellow is- crazy." But
we'll tell you right here that if he
is crazy it takes such crazy folks
to run this old world and make it
a better land in which to live. If
such craze did not exist it would be
a hell-hole indeed and would not be
a fit place only for fanatics, fools
and cronic grouchers. We will ad-
roit that some folks who seem to
be religiously inclined do go crazy,
but there is no such thing as carry-
ing religion too far. The fellow
who really goes daffy over religion
is just a human being like the rest
of us, but the fanatics make an ex-

The most excrutiating joy of be-

we are one.
And now for another summtr of
hard work and fat bank rolls for our
friends, the farmers.
Any fool can spend money, but
it takes a man to make it and a
wise guy to hang onto it.
You just bet we don't dream of

Oklahoma School Notes
There will be school on next Sat-
urday, April 8th. On the last Sat-
urday that we had school, the at-
tendance was almost as good as on
regular school days. We wish to
thank parents for their cooperation
as the plan is working well. Par-
ents should remember that school
will begin on Saturdays at 15 min-
utes before 9 o'clock and close at
11:30. We will open school in the
afternoon at 12:30 and close at 3
o'clock. This will enable children
In the matter of preparedness we
suggest, again, that proper consider

The greatest thing has happened
to the Texhoma community during
the past month that has ever hap-

without question give better satis-
faction to all concerned than all of
the prizes we could give away. 1
