OKLAHOMA FROWNS
ON GUARANTY LAW
State Banks Are Seeking to
Comert Institutions.
A stampede of Oklahoma State bank
ers to get from under the provisions of
the Oklahoma Stato guaranty law is in
evidence The office of Comptroller of
the Currcno Murray is flooded with the
applications of those who are desirous
of converting their institutions into na
lional 1 anks
The guaranty law went irto effect in
Oklahoma on October 1, 1908. In the
year 130S only one State bank was con
verted to the naUonal -vstem, in 19u9
there were three in lsio there wcra
seven Thus far, in 1911 there have been
eighteen conversions, anl du-ing the last
three months the applications for con
version have numbered between 73 and
LO about 6s of them coming in within
the last thirtv das An action on nearlj
all of these Is yet to be taken
W e are tired of the guaranty law
is the burden or the song of the bankers
whose applications are on file One bank
er writes that his net losses within a
term of ears aggragated J217- One as
sessment under the guarantv law to pro
tcct depositors mulcted him of nearly
ten times that amount.
In nearl ever) case- the applicants
demand that the bureau take hurried
action The bankers of the State art-
harassed by rumors that another as
sessment Is In Immediate prospect and
they desire conversion In time to avoid
It, Their complaint is that the law oper
ates into the hinds of speculative bank
ers at the expense of the conv creative
Their argument Is altogether in line with
the one advanced by William Howard
Taft during the last PreaidcnUal cam
paign. Don't 3IIsa It To-morrow.

KATHERINE ELKINS
REPORTED MARRIED
.Return to City starts Gossip
of Secret W eddin?.
New Tork, March 25 The New York
mencan this morning prints the follow
ing special dispat h
W ashington M irch "M A rumor Is cir
culating iround Washington to night
that Miss Kathcr ne Hkins and William
Rejnolds Hitt, of t hicago and Washing
ton wre married in Arizona early this
week on their Southern tour
V note stating this rumor war sent
to both Mr Hitt and Mis Ukins At
the Hitt mansion the information wis
given that Mr Hitt was at the Flkins
home, in K street northwest, and the
note was earned there and received b
Mr Hitt. Hoth Mr Hitt and Miss KIkins
sent hack the noncommittal sentence
No answer
The fact of Mr Hitt s being present
it Mrs Hkms home to-night Is all the
more noticeable because the rest of
Washington societj is in attendance at
the White House mLjicale a festivit)
Miss Flkins could not attend on account
of her mourning
It is known that Mr Hitt and Miss
Flkins sptnt a part of the week In the
Grand Canyon "ectlon of Arizona under
the chiporomgo of Miss fc.lh.ins sister in
law Mrs Hlamo h lkins Societj here
has been in momentarv expectation of the
news of an engagement at least, and
therefore does not hesitate to believe that
Miss Katherine has aire idv stolen a
mareh on rcr friends
The report has traveled like wildfire
through Washington society to-night and
the silence of the parties most concerned
tends to give credenc to it.
''ocietv is laughing at the way the
clever voung people stole a march on
them when they arranged the dual house
boat guest role with the Joseph loiters In
fc lorid i First Miss r lkins went South
with her mother and sister in law and
Joined the Leiters Then Mr Hitt left
Washington for New "iork on "business
but somehow or other got to Florida to
join tho merry houseboat party on Its
big game hunting trip Another coup was
pulled off when it was announced that
Mr Hitt was returning with the Leiters
to Washington last week while Miss El
kins was going to Palm Beach to Join
her mother Instead of that Mr Hitt
left the Tvciter party somewhere en route
and joined Miss Flkins and her party
for a mer-j Jaunt through the Grand
Canjon en route to Washington, where
the) arrived late last night.
MOTHERHOOD AS VOCATION

children to be gotten rid of by wars'
The truth of the matter is that we have
enough producers of children but not
nearly enough mothers and fathers.
"How manv men can s'a-j offhand
what grade their children are In In
school what their studies are How many
men knovvT the character of their son s
school chum, the person from whom he
will learn probably, the most serious
facts of life? It Is a knowledge of these
and similar things affecting the child s
welfare that make a man a father, a
woman a mother Lacking this Intel
ligent and sympathoUc understanding and
InPuence, they are mere producers of
children, no better than other animals
engaged In i similar function
Undoubted!) a time will come," Di
Shaw, continued, "when certain women
will dellberatel) choose motherhood as
a location and the government will pay
them for their service to the state as
mothers. Some women have a perfect
genius for motherhood, as others have
for art or literature.
"But when the time comes for mother
