"Most of the other January makes a serious effort states are in the same fix as Oklahoma and these states are all joining to ask the next congress to authorize the federal social security board to match States' funds for dependent chil-dretn on the same basis as old age pensons-fif ty percent.  As predicted in this column some weeiks ago the federal social secuirity board has practically restored Oklahoma to full participation. Chairman A. L. Altmeyer of the national board has notified Denton that the federal board has restored a-bout $2,000,000 to the Oklahoma organization. "This means," Denton said, J "that the federal board is nor participating on a 100 percent basis on all reinvestigated and new cases and up to 75^ percent on the old cases that have not yet been reinvestigated by the state board. ; Denton said said that this means that the nex old age pension checks will avterage about $15.16, the next checks for netedy, blind will average about $16.32 but that he is still unable to determine what the dependent children will receive. at reforming the prison laws of the state that the indeterminate sentence law will receive consideration. Norte of the nominees for governor have, in any public statement or in their platforms, -given the public any indication that prison reform will be attempted in the next administration. Governor Marland has gone a long way in establishing the Oklahoma Techonoligical Institute at Stringtown where first termers at the reformatory and pertitentiay and those whom the warden belie vev easily ere-deejmable can be sent on parole ! to learn vocations and agriculture. Whether the next legislature will go all the way with the Marland program and provide that, the penitentiary shall be converted irtto a real prison and that the .XStanite Reformatory shall be made an Oklahoma Al-cat'raz is still to be determines. This would, 'as the governor pointed out, call for 'a-, radical change in .the state laws, and' probably the constitution* 1 to permit courts to sentence prisoners .for definite eerms but provide a general receiving sta- "I. doubt if we^can pay over tion to wluch, all, .prisoners 60 percent to the dependent. wouid be, takenfor examination. children," said Denton. "It congress will' raise the federal government's; ..participation:to , 50 percent of the total then Oklahoma '.could give its dependent children the full amount." The state must have a. comr plete merit system in operation by September \1 ami Denton said that 4b result of : the Such ^ System"as. the governor cbhtempiateawhen^he launched his Stringtown; program" would fit in nicely with an indeterminate sentence law., Governor Marland in discussing the Kennaraer case, which brought out his observation about punishment, said he'Jit' thoroughly. familiar with pe Y ARE MOTOR GAR Boys, Asleep In Road, Are Uninjured After Bdjng Run * Over by all Four Wheels 1&ng, lgnq^ago . .

Attempts to sein minnows any closer than Sallisaw creek arid Baron usually prove fruitless. At the best spots on these two creeks, too, bait is beginning to get scarce. Since the water has been low, for the past several weeks, it has been easy to sein and live-bait f ishmen have probably taken more than they needed. Although I don't want to be a preacher, I still believe in stringing along with the better sportsmen's ideas against wanton waste of our fish, bait and wildlife. Cries., for.
