Oklahoma, to accept the league of nations covenant in order to establish a new world order, and not to delay its action by “captious and partisan dispute' over the wording of is various provisions. **I shall not criticise the rhetoric or the verbiage of the covenant," said Senator Owen. This covenant is wise. it is thoughtfully drawn. In its substance it is splendid. In its purpose it is glorious. “A perfect contract between scoundrels is worthless. An imper- j feet contract between trustworthy friends, who have fought and bled together in a common love of jus-; tice and liberty, is of very great value Let us be devoutly thankful] for the opportunity to bind the world together in bonds of peace. “On the battlefields a league of victorious nations va-? e«tab~ j lished.

The principles of the league are those of the conventions drought down to date. It represents the best opinions of the whole civilized world. Do not slay the covenant as President Wilson’s child.

Some financiers contest these figures strongly and assert that the deficit is merely a paper one due to failure in bookkeeping to charge the immense government traffic at rates which private traffic would cost, and that the financial outlook is nowise as bad as Sir Eric’s view of it. The deficits of the railways and mines are defrayed under present arrangements, the former directly from the treasury out of the pockets of the tax payers, the latter by the whole community through official advances in the price of coal.    *lf Pioneer Phone Service To Improve With Private Control; No Excuses Go COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO INVESTIGATE THE lf.

With the falling of darkness it is believed any hope that the officers may have of capturing the bandits will be dispelled. It is likely the men will continue on into the Osage hills where they will find it a comparatively easy matter to avoid detection. The robbery of the bank was not featured by any shooting. The bandits were well outside of Jenks before the cashier had time to spread an alarm. Rev. Harold G. Cooke known as Tulsa’s Jazz parson be-j cause of his spectacular sermons and musical programs was one of the leaders in the bandit hunt.

One of the most striking pictures I saw in the British Art gallery was that of a raging tempest sweeping trees, houses and barns before it. In one corner was a party of frightened people observing the approaching storm, and in another a group of awe-struck horses, with heads erect and distended nostrils, bodies apparently all aquiver as they intently watched the coming storm and heard its roar. In my tour of Egypt I sood on. the great pyramid of Cheops and looked across a desert as far as the eye could see, and that is a long way in that clear, dry atmosphere. In the opposite direction I could see across the valley of the Nile, which stream courses its way along the center of the strip of valley rendered fertile and fruitful by its waters, and beyond this I could see the desert on the other side. On camel’s back I rode through that desert as far as the Tombs of the Kings, a parching hot, windy journey, over a desolate and weary land. Just before we reached the Tombs, scorching hot and thirsty. we rounded a sand-hill and came suddenly into the shadow of a huge rock towering up out of the sands many hundreds of feet above us. It was like entering a cave. The air was delightfully cool and refreshing making us feel like new creatures. Instantly the words of this text came into my mind, and I said that the old prophet certainly knew what he was talking about when he spoke of the shadow of a great rock in a weary land as a grateful refuge for the way-worn traveler. And what that great rock was to me on that day Jesus Christ has been to me every day since. Refuge a Universal Need. Every man needs a refuge, though many do not recognize it till the oncoming storm is hard upon them. Because they do not feel the need of fire iii summer many do not provide fuel until the winter blasts begin to howl. They are not so wise as the bee and the ant. The devil makes it his chief business to see that men do not feel alarm until destruction is so near alarm will do no good. All men need refuge; for any man’s inner life is liable to be swept by storms of more or less violence. Storms of sorrow drive some to despair and even to self-destruction, because they have not availed themselves of the refuge God has provided for all. Storms of misfortune are ever rendering them helpless unless they have refuge in this “covert from the tempest.” Dry and fruitless are the lives of those who have never drunk of the “rivers of water.” living water, supplied by Jesus Christ, the Savior. The journey of life lies through a weary desert to those who have (Continued on Page Eight.) JUST A SUGGESTION. ©OOO OOO OO 0 0 0 0 G 0 0 o 0 o 0 0 0 O Representative Franklin F.
