O. A. A. loop struggle here tonight from the Stilwell Pirates by a 20 to 14 score.

The score at the half favored the locals, 6 to 2. Holt and T. Curtis Turned in a nice game for the visitors. In a preliminary contest the Sallisaw girls added to their long string of victories by defeating the visiting sextet, 39 to 13. Wickett, Rigsby, Lelies and Spencer were the local girls' big noises while Holt played well for the Stilwell lassies. The lineup. The revival at the Methodist church closed last Sunday night with 20 conversions and nine new members for the .Methodist church. Many of the new converts will probably join one of the other churches in town. The revival drew record crowds each night and the pastor, Rev. Cole, received many compliments on his preaching. The singer, A. M. Hutton, kept the interest up throughout the meeting and had some mighty good music from the choir and sang some touching and impressive solos. The local Methodist church is. very 'fortunate lo have a pastor like Rev. Cole. lie has done wonders for the church since he came here and if he keeps up the pace he has set he is destined to be one of the really big preachers in the future.

I OBJECT Attorney W. A. Woodruff and Prosecuting Attorney W. A. Cor-ley led Judge W. A. Scoflield a merry life IMdnday when they wrangled over and objected to all manner of questions, in the pre liminary trial of a couple of boys charged with a statutory offense. The climax came late Monday afternoon when Woodruff had evidently tired of the slow pace at which the case was moving. He asked Corley lo dispense with the ''horse play" and get down to business. Corley was immediately on his feet objecting to having his plan of prosecution called "horse play." After much pounding and expounding Judge Seo-fleld succeeded in quieting the men and the trial moved on.
