In the limited space, I can't tell you all of the reasons that I'm against them but after reading them over you may be able to figure out some reasons for yourself. I am against any return to political po.wer of the type of men who formerly controlled, and still control, the Republican party. This is not because, I am Wholly a "party democrat" but because; I think the'"barons of finance" who have dominated the republican party., for so many years are motivated by self interest more than by a de- mon's 'plalf ttf' spend #dMoo,-000 on new battleships. I believe this a waste of money, for a few well placed airfields along, our coasts can drive off anyl number of threatening enemy battleships. And after steaming three or four thousand miles to reach us, a battleship with a erasing range of 10,000 miles isn't going to hang around our coast ilme^very long. It can't be done, for the ships must res? fuel and replenish their supplies. If we must spend money on armaments, lets spend it oh planes. They could route batr tleships while the slow-moving giants were 500 miles from Our coast. I am against the farce that is prohibition in Oklahoma. It is actually easier to buy liquor in Oklahoma than in our sister state of Arkansas, where pack-ago sates are permitted. Oklahoma for years has drank wet and voted dry, and this foolishness has cost the state trillions of dollars in revenue Quit could be used for pensions, schools and relief. ' I am against the patronage politics rackets as worked in every department of Oklahoma's government. The sorry mess the highway commission,, under senate management, has got itself into- should convince every intelligent voter of the evil of patronage politics. Oklahoma's old age pension worries are caused by the same thing. "If there were ever a chance to vote for a civil service amendment to the Oklahoma constitution, I should certainly do it. WESTVILLE LADIES HERE Mrs. J. B. Johnson, Mrs. Barton, Miss Myrtle AUfeon and Mrs. Ferris Cabe, all of Westville, were shoppers in Stilwell Wednesday. WILSON IN, CHARGE 1- The National Youth AdminK stration has several.trade or vocational schools in the state, and offers boys and girls from" 18 to 25 an opportunity to go to school with all expenses paid and spending money besides, Carl W. Hensley, Arer NYA Superintendent, announced this week. To be eligible to attend one of these schools the youth must be a certified member of one of three relief groups; WPA family, old age pension or dependent children family. The applicant must also have finished at least the 6th grade; in school, and be ambitious tor. further his education with the hope that they may become better equpped to obtain a job in the world. If you are interested in at-1 tending one of these schools! call on Mr. James G. Ward NYA; Supervisor in Adair county and he will gladly furnish you with all information regarding these schoolsV I CATRON BUYS LEASE f shoe store that bears his name, last week bought the unexpired lease on the builling formerly occupied by the Hodges Grocery and Market. Catron said he had not decided whether he wOtild move his establishment into the new location or whether lie would sub-lease it. GETTING RESULTS Mr. L. M^CTeinents, who for several week's has inserted advertisement in the Democrat for the Hal Millsap grocery, has had excellent results with it, he said this week. Millsap's, a clean well-stocked store, enjoys a good business in Stilwell. PREFORMS GOOD SERVICE The Stilwell Credit Association, under the direction of Mrs. Paul Edie, is preforming a good service for Stilwell merchants doing a credit business.
