Either of, the Democratic runoff candidates for governor Ray- mond Gary or W. P. Bill Atkinson be expected to .make sweeping changes in the J. How- ard Edmondson administration. And, of course, if Henry Bell- jnon should become Oklahoma's first Republican governor he as-' suredly would uproot many Dem- ocratic .appointees who have been at the Capitol, for. Edmondson's administration was behind Lt. Gov. George Nigh and, if he had won, many undoubtedly would have remained at the Cap- itol. Nigh now is throwing his sup- port to Atkinson. But there is lit- tle evidence that administration officials could or would swing be- hind the Midwest City builder in an.effort to hold onto their jobs after, next January. Last Friday at a candidate fo rum held by 'the Oklahoma City Press Club Atkinson said if elect ed he would replace Parham as director of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. This statement aroused mem bers of the ABC Board. It also aroused some residents of Okfus kee County where Parham once served as county attorney. One.hoard member.immediate- ly dug out fieS at the pleasure of the board not the governor. ,He 'also verified that ABC Board members are remov- able, only for a gover- nor cannot fire them unless neg- lect of duty or wrongdoing is shown. -He said the five board members Old, New Prayers Honor Gilcrease TULSA handful of cornmeal, a symbolic ar- row and a Christian prayer sent the spirit of 72-year- old millionaire Thomas Gilcrease on its way to another world.

"This is a very important meet, Savage added, "every state that has organized- such .a Good Roads Association has benefited greatly." Key speaker at-the banquet and meeting will be James T.

Tetrick, a. retired minister and friend of Gilcrease. The'Indian ceremony was per- formed by ;the Delight Makers of the Acoma Pueblo .Tribe, led by Wolf-Robe Hunt, on the grounds of the Indian museum founded by Gilcrease. The ceremony: began with Hunt leading six other Indians in full ritual dress into an en- closed area near the bier.' They saluted the casket and chanted a the last ar- row.
