[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.3557]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "Favored by perfect weather, Oklahoma's new Turner Turnpike clicked 10,012 vehicles through its gates during the first 24 hours of operation. H. E. Baily, turnpike manager, said first day's use of the 58-mile four-lane superhighway between Oklahoma City and Tulsa, was nearly four times greater than the 2,500-cars-a-day average estimated by engineers for purchasers of the turnpike bonds. Audit of cash taken in at the six entrances will not be completed until late monday, but Bailey said he was hopeful the total would be close to $12,000. The novelty of the new super-smooth highway with a top speed limit of 70 miles an hour, couples with the return of sunshiny weather drew thousands of Oklahomans out for a drive.The heaviest play was coming from the Tulsa end where 3,832 vehicles were counted through the gates between official opening at 3 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. During the same period, the Oklahoma City entrance count was 2,711...Included in the 10,012 total were 9,385 passenger automobiles, 58 passenger trucks, 113 light trucks, 42, heavy trucks, 374 semi-trailer trucks and 40 buses. Many of the cars rolling through the gates bore out-of-state licenses. gatekeepers reported spotting tags from France, Mexico, Canada, and practically every one of the 48 states including "just about half of Texas," Maurice Cline, turnpike comptroller, said...Mr. and Mrs. Charles G. Lehr, Dearborn, Mich., checked out from the Oklahoma City end at mid-afternoon, and by that time both were enthusiastic boosters for Oklahoma's new turnpike...W. D. Sloan, Winfield, Kans., paid toll charges from Sapulpa to Oklahoma City and observed: "We need more of these." Price Marion, Ada, drove the turnpike for the first time and said he found it "mighty fine." At the Tulsa end of the turnpike, ...

[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.6142]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "There's no easy way to tell a mother her son has been killed in a war, a wife that her husband is a traffic victim, or a husband that his wife has incurable cancer. Ministers, police, "causalty assistance" officers in the military and hospital chaplains all agree on that. There's No Formula Neither is there a one-two-three formula for carrying out such duty in the least offensive way. "There are no two cases handled the same way," says Gene wells, undersheriff and a veteran of 36 years in law enforcement. "It depends on the type of message, the kind of trouble you're talking about and what you walk into when you get there." Maj. Edward E. Dauster, inspector-instructor for Marine Corps reserve units in Oklahoma, said he carried as many as six next-of-kin messages per month to Oklahomans two years ago."

[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.3570]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "A motorist's dream came true in Oklahoma Saturday when the 88-mile Turner turnpike, linking Tulsa and Oklahoma City, was officially opened. Scattered thunderstorms threatened ribbon-cutting ceremonies at six cities along the way, but it didn't discourage eager drivers who lined their cars up by the thousands for a free ride before toll charges began at 3 p.m....Perhaps the happiest man at the dedication was former Gov. Roy J. Turner, who pushed the firsttoll road bill through the legislature six years ago. "I hope this is the first thing many of us thought, it would be - I think it will be," he said at a program held at the pike's western terminus, northeast of Oklahoma City...The sun shoneimtermittenly, and there was no rain at the west-end festivities."
