MrALESTEB. Okla.. Nov. 29 —
|(#po.-l«l.>— A white man giving his l
name as Tom Williams has been nr-1

Because, so the students declare,
the school authorities a..e not willing
to "properly" observe the day of
Thanksgiving, many pupils of the pub-
lic schools went out on a strike yes-
terday afternoon, and many more
threaten to mutiny all day Friday.
It seems that It has been the cus-
tom of the school officials to give tho
pupils tho Friday following Thanks-
giving as a holiday, but that this year
they refused to do so. Undgr the old
custom the students were given a
Thanksgiving vacation of four days
merely by holding no school on Fri-
day—Thursday, Friday, Saturday and
Yesterday Thanksgiving programs
were given In the schools, but accord-
ing to the strikers only tho "sissies
and goody-goodies" attended.
And If the school, authorities live up
to their threat to hold schol on Fri-
day there will be many empty seats,
say those of a rebelUpus nature,
A teacher In the high school, fur-
thermore, Is blamed for all the trou-
ble. It Is said that she suggested to
her pupils that If she were a pupil
she certainly would strike before she
would attend school on Friday. The
students needed no further encour-
agement, it seems.
The fact that a teacher had sown
the seedt of sedition before long
reached the ears of Superintendent
Monroe, and he In great wra'h, so the
story goes, called a meet.ng of all the
tcuchers and attempted to learn who
the guilty one was. He had but little
success, however, satisfying himself
with a general rebuke.
There Is scarcely a pupil In the
higher grades who does not know the j
Identity of the teacher, but they ai;e
holding her secret as if It werb a sac-
! The school authorities admit that
some were absent yesterday, but de-
clare thaT'the number was not large.
They 'pooh-pooh" the Idea of a gen-
eral strike Friday.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29. -Elbert
II. Gary,' executive head of the United
States Steel corporation, made a plea
for "big business" today before the
senate committee on Interstate com-
merce, which Is searching for a solu-
tion of the present trust problem In
the United States.
Big corporations are essential to the
development of the country and the
maintainunce of business prosperity,
he said. To prevent their misusing
the enormous power that comes with
woalth and control of Industrial
agencies, he thought tho government
should take control of them, through
a corporation or trade commission,
with absolute power to regulate theii
affairs. Add to this a clear law as t.
what can and what cannot be done;
tbtt strong light of publicity on all the
affairs of corporations; and the elim-
ination of presidential ■ and other
political Issues from the business
world and the "unrest" that ha;
spread over the United States will
largely disappear, said Mr. Gary.
Election Disturb* Buslniss.
The coming election Is already dl
turbine business, he added. He said
members of the courts ought to >
elected for eight years without the
privilege of re-election, so that
would be In a "position and frame
mind" where he would not be tempt
ed to "look in any direction or to
ward any interests" In seeking re-
Gary dwelt at length upon the
political situation. He said he had
no particular president In mind, bul
he believed fewer elections and less
reason for seeking public or private
support for political purposes would
aid greatly in keping business at h
level. At the present time, he said,
there was a great curtailment of
business activity because of the ap-
Judge Oary rocommeniled federul
license of corporations, their control
by a trado commission, tho publicity
of all their affairs and the sanction
of certain acts which the commissioi
might consider not to be "restraint of
trade." He promised to appear agali
before the committee next week.
XVIiat Is "Restraint of Trade?"
"How would tho commission know
whether an agreement among stct I
men to fix the price of rails at 2;
was "restraint of trade?" asked Sen-
"It would soon become competent
to know that." returned Judge Gary.
"As the Interstate commence coin-
ni'sslon has become competent i

Ho ileclared unrestrained competl-
Hon meant tho ruin of the small inll-
vldual or concern, and the gradual
strengthening of tho natural mono-
poly of the larger. As opposed to
this, he urged that tha government
recogniio the need of partial agree-
ments between corporations and indi-
viduals, so that an actunl competition

be fair and free to all Interests.
"Is tlu're any particular Ihlrig now
clearly forbidden by the Sherman
law that you think ought to be per-
mitted?' asked Senator Cununlns.
Mr. Oary thought the business dif-
ficulty lay In doddlwr beforo hand
what amounted to a restraint of

their affairs, were not to *lx prices,

The all-absorbing topic is on the
tongue of ah enthusiasts who have al-
ready arrived here to witness the
great event. Incoming trains aire
crowded with newcomers and the ho-
tels. as well as the hospitality of Sa-
vannah, uro now taxed to the utmost
with racing enthusiasts.
The drivers who will pilot tho
throbbing metallic steeds In tomor-
row's ratx w:th death are among the
most famous and fearless in their vo-
cation. The dangers with which such
a headlunj spectacular dash at in-
credible speed necessarily Is fraught
Is fully realised by these men, but ap-
parently Is not to be taken Into con-
sideration. Ralph Mulford's light-
ning speed, in which he not only cap-
tured the Vanderbilt cup race but
also lowered the Santa Monica record,
has precipitated keen rivalry-. Oe-

ers entered In tomorrow's race freely
assert - hat they will surpass this feat
If their machines and tires will stand

The weather forecast is for "clear,

cold experienced today afceady has j
hardoned tho soft spots in the course, j

be much faster than expected.
Among the speed kings who attract-1

The most Important letter Injected

It was undated.
Stokes denied that ho got Miss

of her visit to Lexington. He also
deidod that two other notes were
written at his request In Kentucky,
and declared that all the notes In

and sent to his office.
Stokes' examination closed for the
day with the prosecution reading
more than sixty letters alleged to have
