Comrades and Friends: Another year has transpired and we -have again foregathered to en- ness. joy the annual occastgn that brings more joy to our hearts than any other social function of the year. From the end of one to the begin- ning of the other we look forward with pleasurable anticipations of meeting and conversing with our old comrades. Personally there is no pleasure that I treasure more and I assure you comrades that your warm hands-hakes and your glad welcome are greater and more potent tonics than any compound that has yet come from the che-mist's laboratory.

The Ardmore Chamber Com- merce, through Mr, Hoard, of. that city, is making a strong bid for the next state reunion ol the United Confederate Veterans. Mr. Hoard brings a letter of in- vitation to the veterans, now meet- ing in Ada, signed by the officials of the Chamber of Commerce, In which everything the veterans could desire is offered. Since the Confederate Veteran's Home SB located at Ardmore it does seem that it would be the logical place for a state convention, and many of the veterans interviewed by the News are favorable to Ard- more. The letter from the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce to the veter- ans now assembled at Ada is as follows: "August 23, 1919. "To the United Confederate Veter- ans, in Convention Assembled, Ada, Oklahoma. Gentlemen: "The Ardmore Chamber of Com- merce extends to you a cordial earnest invitation to hold your next annual meeting in Ardmore.

They know how the Southern armies held that flag aloft for four, long, bleeding years and held it stainless through all the storms ot war Thev know how those armies withstood the crash of cav- alry on a thousand fields of glory. They know how that army was never conquered, but surrendered only when there was not a round of ammunition left to charge a soldiers gun or a solitary ration remaining to sustain a soldier s life.
