OKLAHOMA CITY. July
Tom C. Waldrap of Shawnee,
speaker of the house of repre
sentatives who while acting as
governor, pardoned M. M Kulk
erson of Alva, sentenced to seven
years In the penitentiary on a
conviction of embezzlement, to
day issued a statement explaining
Ml rsaSOna for granting the par
don. He said: "There may he
aome persons would care to have
an SXprSOSton from me regarding
the I'ulkerson pardon. It is not
my desire to engage in a press
controversy. I merely wish to
state toy net was prompted by re

the Importunities of friends of
this man, who were conversant
with all thef acts In this case.
I am convinced that this man de
served consideration and hy
granting this pardon I have noth

"My record In public office
during the past six years, I be
lieve, Is above reproach. I have
never hroken a promise nor failed
to do what I thought was right.
I am confident that the facts In
this case fully Justified all that
I have done.
When this matter has been
tested and determined I shall be
pl ued to give the press and

atlack upon the pardon probably will
be made In one of the courts of
Oklahoma rather than In a requisi

another slate, It Is expected.
Lieutenant (iovernnr Trapft said
today that if Kulkerson could be
located outside 'be stale and if a
warrant should e presented for his
arrest he would he glan to Issue a
requisition for his return to Okla

our fight. There Is doubt If Wald
rep had the ronstliu'icnal right to
Issue the pardon. Although I do
not know for certain where Kulk
erson is, i have a strong suspicion.
Officers will run him down."
Mr Freeling planned to send to
the sheriff of Woods county instruc

of the criminal court of app' ats to
compel Kulkerson to bagta the serv

for smtHMlsrntnt. but the plans had
