The person who fails to see the sport will regret it till the last day -of life, according to those in charge of the sport. The admission fee is put down to a measly two-bits, in order that every man, woman and his little pup may be present. Two games will be played, both of them, on the Normal gridiron, and both for the one admission fee. One game will be a match between NEITHER TEXAS NOR OKLAHOMA IS ENTITLED TO DISPUTED RED RIVER LANDS IN HIS BELIEF. The Red River boundary dispute involving oil lands worth $200,000,-OfO, may ultimately be settled in such a way that neither of the contesting state—Texas and Oklahoma—will get the territory. And the land may revert to its original owners, the Wichita Indians. At least that will be the decision if the supreme court follows the suggestion of Joseph P. Thoburn, secretary of the Oklahoma Historical society. According to Thoburn, the land the East Central Normal and the, rightfully    belongs    to the Wichita Ada High school for the champion-1 indians    because    they first inhabited ship of Ada and vicinity, and the' other game will be played between the Willard and Irving Schools. The .Normal and Highschool both have strong teams and have scrimmaged a number of times. Each has defeated the other, and the game tomorrow has been planned to settle definitely the superiority of the better team. All members of the two teams are anxious and ready to go, each expecting to give the best that is in him it and since being driven from it have not been paid for it by either Oklahoma, Texas or the federal government. “The ancestors of the Wichita Indians have lived on both sides of Red River for 1000 years," said Thoburn. “For 500 years they hate occupied that part of the country along Red river where it traverses the Burkburnett oil fields.

A thorough investigation of the general charge of profiteering was decided on by the county council of defense at Its meeting at the court house Saturday afternbon. A special committee of three was appointed by Chairman Orel Busby to make investigation and report its findings to the council. The next meeting of the council will be held at the court house next Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock. The committee appointed Saturday consists of J. W. Bolen, Wayne Wadlington, and Luther Harrison. By motion duly adopted the committee was instructed to investigate profiteering along every line. It is probable that the meeting of the council next Thursday will be sufficiently interesting to justify the attendance of the full membership. HANDSOME RAISE IN SALARY GIVEN TO REV. MORRIS Otis B.

Morris was in Roff where he delivered bio lecture, ’"Calling Out tbe Called,” at the Baptist church in that city and the salary raise was abreed on in his absence. Tbis was a most pleasant surprise for Rev. Morris, and one that he ftpn-eciates very much. It is also an indication that the Baptist folk are more than pleased with their pastor and that he is making good in his present position. Otis B. Weaver of Shawnee was among the first to answer “present” when the Oklahoma Baptist Convention inaugurated its drive to raise a million dollar endowment for the Oklahoma Baptist University at Shawnee. He enrolled as a member of the first class of contributors by subserving $10,000 to the million dollar fund. Of this total he subscribes $5,00 through the First Baptist Chfcrch of Shawnee and $5,000 through the First Baptist Church of Ada.
