C. E.

Other talks that tended to bring out the same idea were made by District Judge J. T. Parks, Rev. O. C. Seymour of Tahlequah, F. S. Howard of Baron, and Wren Fletcher and Joe M. Lynch of Stilwell.

This committee will meet with the various civic organizations in Tahlequah and Wagoner and plans are being made to send a delegation from thee towns to meet with the High Commission at Ok lahoma City as soon as a date can be arranged. It is the de3ire of these working in behalf of Highway 71 that it be made a first class highway with a permanent survey that will establish proper grades, curves and width, and that bridges be built at several points where high water often stops travel along this road. Out of town visiters present at the meeting were: Hugh Gill, Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Parks, Mrs. G. O. Grant, C. E. Webber, O. N. Goddard, Ed Hicks, O. C. Seymour and Joe Grimm all of Tahlequah. THE SPECIAL EDITION We wish to thank our many friends for their kind words of commendation on our Special Edition on Tuesday morning of this week that was issued in connection with the merger of the two Stilwell banks. Even though we could get no definite information on the matter until 10 o'clock Monday night, after the meeting of the stockholders of the two institutions, we believed our readers would appreciate knowing the facts as early as possible, so it was a pleasure for our force to spend the balance of the night to get out the EXTRA. Just another instance of getting you the news first and rendering every service possible to our readers. MITCHELLS HAVE WRECK WARD ELECTED TO HIGH PLAGE IN EDUCATION Succeeds Tulsa County Man as Member of Board of Directors OUR NEW BANK (An Editorial) Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Mitchell formerly of Stilwell but who now live in Muskogee, narrowly escaped serious in jury in a car wreck on Tuesday of last week. While driving on a Muskogee street their car was forced against the curb by a two-ton truck which cut the corner. Mitchell's car suffered a split fender, bent frame, bent front axle, broken bearing damages and other damages and Mrs. Mitchell received bruises about the face. MRS. VIRGINIA DUFF Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Leonard Stewart at the Christian church here Monday, Nov. 11, for Mrs. Virginia Duff, 67 years old, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Worley after a lingering illness of several months. She was a resident of Cherokee coun ty until the past two years, most of which had been spent here at the homes of relatives. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Bettie Sanders of Wauhillau, Mrs. Bell Worley of Stilwell and Mrs. Lin-nie Ownes of Bidding Springs, and by three sisters, Mrs. Ollie Hestand of Wauhillau, Mrs. Martha Hyatt of Spearman, Texas, and Mrs. Ophelia Langley of Stilwell. Prof. J. G. Wrd, superintendent of Stilwell schools, was signally honored at a recent district meeting of the Oklahoma Educational Association held at Tulsa, when he was elected aa a member of the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma Educational Association He was elected for a term of three years to fill the place left vacant by the expired term of A. G. Bowls, formerly county superintendent of Tulsa county. Eight members make up this board of directors who have in charge the management of the state Educational association with approximately 20,000 members among the teachers of the state. The board elects a president and secretary and superintendents the publication of the teachers magazine. The 840,000.00 annual revenue which the association collects is disbursed under the direction of this board. It is indeed an honor for a Stilwell man to be elected to this position and it comes' to Mr. Ward as a reward of years of faithful service to the schodls of Oklahoma. --- GEO. W. HILL Funeral services were held Saturday Nov. 9 at the New Hope cemetery for Geo. W. Hill, 81 years old, who died Nov. 8 at the home of .his son. W. S. Hill, at Marietta. Funeral services were conducted by Rev] Chas. H. Cole and arrangements were in charge of the Roberts Undertaking Parlor. He was a member of the Methodist church and for 50 years had been a resident of this community. He is survived by seven sons, Benjamin of Pomona, Calif., Frank of Po-tcau, Dan of Stilwell, George of Big Cabin, Robert of Bernice, Austin of Tulsa, and two daughters, Mrs. Esther Smith of Echota and Mrs. Lillie Akin? of Stilwell. All the children except Mrs Smith were present at the funeral. The wheels of progress drive relentlessly on and we must either fall in line or get out of the way foi( those who do business the modern way. There is a general movement over the country of consolidation of banks and other kinds of business enterprises that can better serve the community and themselves by consolidation than by competition. Our banks here have followed the general movement and announced Tuesday morning their consolidation into the Security State Bank. Just a single glance at the list of officers, directors and stockholders is sufficient to convince any citizen of Adair county that there is band, ed together in this new institution the trongest group of men that have ever befoe joined hands in a business undertaking in the county. Not alone for their financial standing do we say this but for their business ability and the general progressive spirit they have always shown in matters that contribute to the growth of the town and county. No comment is necessary on the past records of Mr. Hughes and Mr. Carlson, president and cashier, respectively, Bince the' public hai^ been dealing saisfactorily for years with both of them. Among the directors and stockholders, you see a new name or two but the best of those from the two former institutions have been retained and we believe they will work together harmonously for the upbuilding of all worthy enterprises in Stilwell and, Adair County. The comments from the general public are very favorable and officers of the bank say that already they have received Beveral new ac-accounts that have heretofore not been kept in either bank.. This is an expression of confidence in this new half million dollar concern that will spread as the people come to know better its vast resouces and the outstanding character of the officers, directors and sockholders of the new Security State Bank. NOW YOU TELL ONE! "Records may come and records may go," but some one is golag to have to grow some mighty big tuB-nips if G. E. Casey's record of 7 pounds and 2 ounces doesn't go on forever. -\ The Democrat had just gone into the mails last Friday morning leS-ing about a 5 pound four ounce turnip grown by Jess Brewer when Wfe. Casey, who lives near Bunch, drove into town with a collection of fine specimens he had selected from the 300 bushels he has grown from one acre. The two largest of these are now on display in our window. The largest weighs 7 pounds and 2 ounces the smaller tips the scales at 6 1-4 pounds. See them. � Another added to our collection this week, was brought in by Bteh Littlejohn and weighs 5 1-2 pounds. It's beautifully colored and has a good shape. Can this" record be beaten or do we crown Casey aB Adair County's champion turnip grower? PARADE IS BIG FEATURE ON THE PROGRAM TODA' Assembly, Parade, Crowning of Quee and Football Game Features Homecoming Day The last conference game of thd season, the Eufaula Ironheads vb Stll-| well Pirates, will bo the climax of big celebration for homecoming daf| according to the program announce for today. r3~ DISTRICT MEET1..j OF EASTERN StfAR HERE TODAY Eastern Star members from lodges in Westville, Webber Falls, Vian Muldrow and Salliaw will meet with local members today for a school of instruction for District No. 3, according to announcement made here this week.

Cole and Jeff Atker-son attended the district stewards meeting in Tahlequah Thursday. -- Mrs. Cass A. Carr and children of Tahlequah Were guests of Mr. and Mrs Walker Capps here Monday. The first snow of the season began falling shortly afternoon Thursday and came down with considerable fury the balance of the day. The weather man predicted Wednesday that snow would probably accompany falling temperatures over Eastern Oklahoma. -- Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Bishop were in Ft. Smith Monday. (By the Observer) A new turn in politics for the county comes in the appointment of the Democratic- War Horse, Geo. W. Smith, as secretary of the county election board to take the place of H. T. Williams, who recently resigned. As a man who always votes and talks a straight Democratic ticket, Smith cannot be beaten. He is square honest and a lover of fair play and it is expected that he will do much to strengthen the Democratic organization in the county. Other members of the board are Ab Cabe of Westville and J. A. Taylor of Christie. Joe Bradford, patrolman on Highway 17 betwen Baron and Westyille has thrown his hat in the ring as a Democratic candidate for sheriff and Ora Gordon says he will be the rdce again for court cuerk. Most of the candidates will probably know definitely what they are going to do by the first of the year and the race will be underway. N.O.A.A.
