CREATED IO YEARS AGO WITH OTT \ PltOYISION h>UMVI\. XKN AMOK, IT MOW RANKS HIGH. Th** pride ut Oklahoma is to a great extent her schools, among th** hest in the entire country. Anions these schools the normals, those teaching the teachers how to teach and what to teach, are now* taking their places at the top. The normal scfhool at Ada has been in existence lo years, during which time it has been the instrument o revolutionizing the educational lift of the eleven counties allotted u> it as its working ground. lf the same progress is made in the next decade that has been made in the last, the educational life of this part of Oklahoma "ill be second to none. Wheu the Hast Central Normal was created by the state legislature n 1909 no provision was made for its maintenance. With the money appropriated for the building the faculty was selected and work started in the following September. At first he high school building of Ada and ’he church buildings were utilized. These served for an entire year. In 1910 the administration ‘building was completed and the school went into a home to stay.    t In 1909 there were few teachers in this district who were as much as normal school graduates. There "ere almost no university and college graduates. The Normal faculty began an agitation for better teachers and began training better teachers. Before many years had passed the trustees of the schools were not asking for the cheapest teacher, but were asking Tor the best, irrespective of salary. When >chool men now find the teacher they want, they pay whatever is necessary get that individual teacher. In 19t»9 i her** w ere no high school debating societies in this territory* Now every high school of an> importance has a debating >ociety that is given as much encouragement as any of the school activities. Athletics, too. have made wonderful strides in 19u9 and 1910 it was no uncommon thing for football rooters to rug,h on the ground and stop playing, saying the home team was getting the worst of the deal. The object was not to have clean sport, but to win, regardless of the sport. With this condition Harry Cox came to Eas» Central and started a campaign. His first two or three football teams amounted to nothing, because he was building from the bottom and building in such a way that time would demonstrate his usefulness and his high regard for right and clean sport. Hi> team got better year after yea* until he was called to larger fields Cox was succeeded by Glenn < Continued on Page Five > How the Oklahoma slate lair leaped from a private gamble to * paying municipal enterprise in 12 short years reads like a miracle. The story is told by attendance figures compiled each year by association officials. When in 1907 a number of pie-' neers got together to float a “fair*’ in the then territory of Oklahoma,] they were gambling just as surely; as any negro buck ever threw dice and prayed to his shoes for luck. I There was not even a state, but there was that spirit in the Territory that has e'er kept this section just a little ahead cl the times. I The fan was held and despite * all predictions of grouches for there were grouches theu just as now -2 5,000 people roiled thru the makeshift gates, it was a grand success. old timers still talk about the; first fair, in the year that Oklahoma got statehood. They any that no matter how much money is spent or how ninny people turn oui there will never be another fair to equal tin- first attempt. From that time on the fair was an assured success. Each year the attendance was swelled by 10,000 or 20.000. Sometimes the increase went up over 30,000. In 1915 attendance was 125,000 and the next year bonds were floated. purchased, and the Oklahoma State Fair became a municipal proposition. Attendance swelled from 138.000 in 1910 to 17 5.000 in 1918. Everybody predicts 200,000 people at least tins year. With 160 acres of the finest land in the state aud 6u buildings including the great new one just finished this year, the state fair association holdings now represent $750,000.

Grigsby, We Believe in Service We believe that a newspaper should be something more than a business institution. To be sure, it must have business to exist, but a newspaper that can’t bt* of service to a community, aside from simply doing the printing and advertising for the business men, is purely a mercenary institution and is of little value from other than a business standpoint. This newspaper has an ambition to serve the people of this community in every way possible. It is here to battle for the best interests of every business and professional man who lives here, if they are here to make an honest living as we are trying to do. Furthermore it stands for public improvement and every movement which is designed to be of advantage to the town and community.    • And The News stands for more than that. It is in sympathy with the poor, the weak and the distressed. And when opportunity offers it is going to their rescue if it lies within its power to do so. A little bit of service was done Saturday when The News was instrumental in securing the release of a young boy from the county jail whom it believed to be a victim of cruel circumstances and whom we believe will make good if given a chance. In response to The News’ appeal Saturday for a job for this boy at least a half dozen business men called this office this morning wanting to give the boy a chance. Charley Zorn, the popular plumber, however, had already taken the boy, given him a home and started him in to learn the plumbing trade. That very boy may be the mayor of this city some day—who can tell? Anyway, The News helped to give him the chance he deserves, and if he fails to make good he can blame no one but himself. He has at least been put on the road to wellville and has been given proper instructions for the journey. That was a small matter, to be sure, but it is SERVICE and SERVICE is what we believe in.

WASHINGTON. Sep I. 21. “Wire or w rite your congressman and senators to help us.” is the call of Cyrus s Avery, Oklahoma member of the federal highway council, to his good roads friends throughout the st at e. Tilt request is made in response to the recommendations of Chairman S. W. Williams or the federal highway council, in which he calls attention to a joint resolution introduced in the Unite*! States senate September 6 by Senator Hoke Smith of Georgia relating to the distribution of army trucks and motor driven vehicles by the war de-par; men t tor road building purposes throughout the United States. Th** executive committee of the American association of state highway officials which was in session at Washington on the day the resolution was prepared and introduced indorsed it and are urging its passage, and Chairman Williams of the council is calling upon all state me libers of the executive committee to aid him in bringing pressure to bear upon the members of congree to act promptly and favorably upon the Smith resolution. In his appeal for expressions upon the subject Avery says:    “lf you agree with us that the interests of the entire country will be better served by the distribution of these trucks originally provided in the postoffice appropriation act of Feb. ruary 28, 1919, than by selling to speculators at greatly reduced prices as compared to their original ctKsts to the United States, it will be well for you to immediately wire or write your congressman and senators and also have as many of your friends as are interested do the same. Time for action is short and it is manifestly to the best interest loot race was a feature of the meeting. After the adjournment of the meeting the members all accompanied the officers into town and gave an informal spread in Justice Brown’s office at the court house, the judge winning high favors, which amounted to $140.00.

SOLDI ERS, SAILORS AND MARINES, NOTICE. YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, Sept. 22.
