NAMED  By News’ .Special Service  MUSKOGEE, Okla., Sept. 20.—Despite delays which are said to have had their origin at Washington, officials at the Indian agency are proceeding with the gathering of data looking toward the removal of restrictions on half-blood Indians and the making of per capita payments to members of th^ Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes.  With nearly one-fourth of the checks already mailed out. officials expect all of the per capita payments to be made within a few weeks. Checks of $14 0 each have been mailed to 3200 of the 20,000 Choctaws, while checks of $200 each have been sent to 1500 of the 6000 Chickasaws, according to figures made public yesterday.

Roland’s story was so realistic, his face was so honest, that the News agreed to pay his tine it a suspension of his jail sentence could be secured. Last night Judge Brown suspended both fine and sentence provided young Roland would show the stuff of which he claims to be made. The provision is that he stay in the city* get a job and tread the straight and narrow. Roland wants to do that. And the News believes that he will do it  if given a chance.  But who wants a young man who has plead guilty to theft? Who is willing to risk him?  lf the Savior of men was on earth he would tell the boy to go his way and sin no more—and we believe that young Roland would do that very thing.  He hasn’t had his chance. He was born in Ll Paso, Texas, where his parents both died while he was yet an infant, and he was reared by a kind-hearted negro mammy. He is a part of that great throng of which there are altogether too many—who has neither home, relatives nor loved ones.  He had worked in Detroit and saved enough to make his wav back to El Paso, but it was stolen from him by his room mate. Not to be daunted, he started anyway and got as far as Francis when circumstances forced him to commit what he claims to be his first crime.  Roland don’t want to have to do that again. He wants to “beat back” and be given a chance, and the News would be willing to make most any kind of a reasonable wager that he would make good. You would believe so, too, if you could see him. But he cant do that unless he gets a job.  Who is willing to give this lad a chance?  Who has a job for a young man that wants to work rather than steal—who only asks for a chance—the chance that every boy in the world ought to have in a world that was properly regulated?  The boy is today in the care of Rev. S. B. Dameron. lf you know where this bqy cum be placed let Mr. Dameron know about it today, or phone the News office. •  Plans Complete Normal School Trip to Capital  \t a called meeting ol assembly at th*- Normal school today definite plans were completed for the trip to Oklahoma City on "President’s Day.’  It was an nou need that special coaches had been provided by til* Katy for the Normal.

LOUIS, Sept. 19.- It beearn*' known yesterday that a warrant for the deportation of Elm.la Goldman was served on her last Friday in the J et rson City penitentiary where she lias finished serving a two-year sentence for attempting to obstruct tho army draft. Her release from the penitentiary is set for September *2 7.  It was announced that the warrant had been served by a deputy from the St. Louis immigration office and that Miss Goldman will he arrested as soon as she leaves prison and unless she can provide a I $15,000 bond she will be placed in jail to await a deportation hearing  When Miss Goldman entered th* prison at Jefferson City In July. 1917, she said she was born in Russia and in case the deportation is ordered the immigration authorities were under the impression that Russia would be the country to which she would be deported. This brought up the interesting question as to how she would be taken there.  Miss Goldman said upon entering the prison that she was 4S years old and was an American citizen. She said sh** had been in the United States for 31 years and that her I father, now dead, was a naturalized American citizen.  • Charles A. Lich, deputy inspector of the St. Louis immigration ofttce, said today that he was not ready to announce the details of the government’s case against Miss Goldman, but that he was confident of proving two points essential to deportation. namely, that Miss Goldman is an alien and that she is an anarchist, and therefore an undesirable alien.  She is a native of Russia, he said, and has never been naturalized in this country.  The time and place of the deportation hearing have not been set. i Miss Goldman will have the privilege of counsel and witnesses. The transcript of the evidence will be s*nt to the secretary of labor, who will decide whether she shall be deported.

Pa., Sept. 20.—An  absolute industrial armistice for six  months urged by Attorney General  Palmer in an address here today to  permit the solution of economic  problems arising out of the changes •  Drought about by the war.  Such a period of freedom from unrest, he declared, would result soon iii increased production which would bring about an era of “easier living and better times for all.”  “The crying need of the world.” said the attorney general, “is for peace, not political peace between governments alone not industrial peace amongst men alone. The things for which men fight are never settled while the war is on. An armistice must come and anger must sp nd itself be foie men can g* t together and give due consideration to the rights of others.  “lf we could have an absolute industrial armistice in America for i six months; if both the ingredients of capital, that is, money and labor. would be active and constant in the problems of production; the busy, peaceful days would soon yield a spirit which would make it pos-silde to solve the problems which now confront us.”  NORMAN V HOWARD.
