Deputy Marshal Tom Whaley of Holdenville, was in Ada this morning looking after some official business. Mr. Whaley has been deputy marshal of this district for about seven years and has the reputation of being one of the most diligent and efficient enforcement officers in the southwest-
Mr. Whaley states that the liquor situation is encouraging in a great part of his district. He has seven counties lo look arter and states that in all countleg where local officers co-operate with the officers the law is being enforced. This condition is particularly noticeable in Pontotoc and Hughes counties where both officers and citizens loyally co-operate and where violations of the liquor laws have been reduced to a minimum. In two counties and in certain communities of other counties there is no co-operation, according to Mr. Whaley, and in those sections violations of the liquor laws are open and notorious.
In one county in his district, Mr. Whaley states the local officers act as informants for bootleggers and never fail to tip them off when a visit from the federal officers is expected. In another county it is reported that a brother of the sheriff is the king bee among liquor vendors and the sheriff is very dilli-gent in interferring with the efforts of the federal officers to clean up that county.
Mr. Whaley pays a high compliment to the officers and people of Pontotoc county and says that he '•an always depend upon them for any assistance he needs.

Several residents of Ada have seen “Hearts of the World.” the great motion picture Play which will be shown here next week. All of these recommend it as one ut the masterpieces of the motion picture art. W. D. Little, who keeps in touch with 'the developments in this line of photography, has seen the play twice, once when it first came into being, and again a short time later. In speaking of the production, Mr. Little says:
“D. VV. Griffith’s ’Hearts of the World’ is in many ways the greatest screen production in history, in my opinion. It is similar to the ‘Birth of a Nation.* The setting is so realistic that no one can doubt the genuineness of the places the pictures represent. Mr. Griffith took some of the r real est emotional stars, went to the war zone, and made the pictures on the battle fields.
“I have seen the picture twice and it is worth the time and several times the money. It will make one better and more patriotic.
“The story opens with a scene in a peaceful village in France near the German border just before the outbreak of the world war. An American artist has married a French woman and their two children are American citizens. The young folk of the village are working and enjoying life at Its best, when like a flash from a clear sky, the news comes that war has been declared. The young men leave theii wives and sweethearts and rush to the battle front to keep the enemy from taking their village.
“The onslaught of the German hordes is too much and the brave defenders are driven back, the village torn and scattered, and the men, women and Children forced to flee for their lives. Back and forfk the armies sway, first one and then the other holding the village. All the brutality that man in his hate and baseness will go to is brought All the best there is in

Henry Lee Higginson established the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1881. In the years that followed be obtained the services of expert players from the musical capitals of Europe, and engaged conductors of the first rank who gradually developed the organization until it became one of the foremost orchestras of the world. Only 'in one or two years did the concerts yield a net revenue; in every other year until his death Mr. Higginson made up the deficit from his own pocket. One of his announced purposes in founding the orchestra was to provide first class music for the people of small means, and from the start he arranged that several hundred seats at the Friday afternoon rehearsals should be sold at twenty-five cents each. These “rehearsals** in later years came to be concerts in full form.
The Symphony Orchestra Mr. Higginson considered his hobby rather than a philanthropy. He once said that it was to him what a yacht, a racing stable, a library or an art gallery were to other men of wealth.
Mr. Higginson was born in New York City, Nov. 18, 1934, but spent most of his life in Boston. He studied at Harvard, but left before completing his course to enter a counting house. In 1856 ba went to Vienna, where he studied music for a year. He served for three years in the Civil "War, was several limes wounded and was discharged for disability in 1864 with the rank of major and brevet lieutenant colonel. Returning to Boston he entered the banking business and for hiany years headed the firm of Lee, Higginson A Co.
In 1890 Major Higginson presented to Harvard, as a memorial to Harvard men who were killed in the war, Soldiers’ Field, the athletic grounds on a part of which the Harvard Stadium now stands. Nine years later he made a gift of $150,-

Dears Sirs: —
Not content with an insidioi 5 campaign to overthrow our government, members of n dical organizations such as the L W. W. and so-called Communes have resorted to murder, assassinating three of our Great War Veterans at Centralia, Wash. Th« ie skulking hounds have made it all the clearer that ti s evil conspiracy of the bitterest enemies of our goven nent—OF OUR COUNTRY—intend to keep up their astardly attempt to kill and maim in their warfare up n civilization, humanity and the government of the p€ »ple, by the people and for the people.
We, as loyal American citi: ms, believe it is time to act. And as our representative! in congress we respectfully request you to urge and support the most stringent legislation tending to * eradicate these enemies of our country.
