Nov. The president of the anti-Jewish, anti- negro Columbians -was knocked to the floor today in a judge's chamber by a husky assistant at- torney general in the climax of an argument over the organiza- tion's charter. "Dad blame it, I've taken all 1 can from you." yelled Dan Duke as he struck C. Burke with his fist, opening an inch-long gash over his left eye. His face covered with blood, Burke staggered to his feet to shout back that "You'll answer for this." Duke said he swung after a "tirade" in which Burke implied he was not a "white Anglo-Saxon public official." The flnreup climaxed a session in the chambers of Superior Judge E. E. Pomeroy in which the organization won a six-day postponement of the stale suit to revoke its charter. Duke has been representing the state in this suit Hf. he has in similar action against the Ku Klux Kl.-in. Duke left the judicial chambers at the suggestion of Judge Pom- eroy who said: "I'll handle this." Duke asked the judge to call a doctor and said he would pay Burke's medical expenses. The judge first told newsmen he "was considering" action ajainst both Duke and Burke but later said he would "take no cog- nizance" of it, explaining his "back was turned" and he "didn't see any of it." Earlier, during a heated argu- ment over the suit Duke called Phil W. Davis, Columbian attor- ney, a "bald-faced liar." "I am sorry that I was unable to control Duke snid in a statement dictated to newsmen from his office. Read The News Classified Ads.

'Oklahoma' Finally Here Famed Broadway .Musical Stirring Up Biggest Wel- coming in Oklahoma City History OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. is finally com- ing to Oklahoma, and it's causing more commotion in the Sooner state than the original Cherokee land rush back in '89. The road company of the Broadway musical is opening a one-week stand here Monday night and, pardner, Oklahoma ia preparing one of its biggest wel- comings in history for the troupe and everyone else connected with the show. It's just a neighborly way of showing its gratitude for the pro- duction which has brought Okla- homa more jDublicity than the time former Gov. William H. (Al- falfa Bill) Murray threatened to dig up the flowers around the ecutlve mansion and plant tatoes. Sold Out Early Three weeks before the open- ing it was a sell-out. An all-time indoor record for a legitimate production already has been set with a box-office take of some set by the same show at Des Moines. Oklahoma has been trying to get a peek at its namesake since it opened four years ago, but it took the combined efforts of Gov. Robert S. Kerr and E. K. 'Gay- lord, president of the Oklahoma Publishing Co., to lasso the Broadway hit. It took so long to get the show here because the theater guild, sponsor of "Okla- homa" has a iule making it man- datory for its shows to -play in guild cities first. Now that the show is finally coming, Oklahoma is making it a memorable occasion. Giant Parade Monday A 2 hour long planned with a 450-piece as the largest ever-to school bands, more than horsemen, Indians and floats. The pioneer theme has invaded Oklahoma City, if you go into a. restaurant, you'd find the waitresses dressed as cowgirls, the menu strictly west- ern style, and the atmosphere so real you'd be expecting them to start ropin' and brandin' a steak for you. Authors Attending Officials of the theater guild, along with Oscar Hammerstein II, who wrote the book and lyrics, and Richard Rogers, who wrote the music; Lynn Riggs, native Oklahoman on whose play "Green Grow the Lilacs" the mu- sical was based, and Bob Burns of the screen and radio will be here. The Kiowa Indians will induct 1 several visitors into the tribe j while Governor Kerr intends to pass out many honorary citizen- ships. Half the people buying tickets to are from out of town and they're arriving by spe- cial trains, motorcades and buses. Because of the lack of hotels, pullmans are being left at the stations here to provide sleeping accommodations. Industry's Trend From Coal To Oil Speeded Up Since War WASHINGTON.
