About two o'clock in the afternoon 1 moaied uptown to see a friend. Mrs. Cora Freeman, whom I passed on the street, asked: "What's all the excitement. I saw Grover Alberty running up toward the depot with his Winchester. I said I didn't know but I'd sure find out. When I reached the depot, in company with Earl Leslie this time, I saw a long freight train standing about a quarter of a mile to the south, jt was said by abouTa~score of bystanders that "law" was shaking the train down for some negroes who had robbed a store at Spiro. , Pretty soon the train started up, after a couple of toots from the locomotive. A way down the track! saw Dee Bellamy and Alfred Hart climb on a boxcar. The train started picking up speed. '.. Now as you know,; Dee and Al ire good officers.? buf>they no longer possess the agility of youth. As'they neared the depot, the speed bf the train, gradually ^increased. Depot agent White � remarked fo me "They'd better unload or they'll have to ride clear to Watts." Interest in the negro Bandits fwas lost for a moment as the crowd watched Dee and Al hang onto the freight train. By the time (hey reached the depot;-the frah* wasrolling along at about J ^rou�a better leave it," W |t Dfe. Of course he C.

Adair county receives the largest per capita percentage of old age assistance of any county in Oklahoma. During the fiscal years 1986 and 37, Adair county -paid $17,689.98 in sales tax and . received in return in the form,of old age assistance $89,029.00. This is a return of more than five cents for each cent spent on sales.tax and amounts to a considerable item in the county's business life. Should the government suspend its cooperative plan of aiding the, state's fund, Adair county's pensioners would receive a good deal less than half of what they are, now receiving. Governor Marland, who appointed the present; OPWC and who fathered the pension plan now in use, believes that the federal government will give Fi . . ,.._ ., Oklahoma another chance if cor-rections in the plans arernade; . .
