This will bring much relief to the schools as the claims for the past month have been held up in accordance with an opinion Of the attorney general. I Tim four new members are Henry C. Potter, attorney of Ardmore, for the term ending July I, 1915; Frank J. Wikoff. president of tbe Tradesmen's State bank and former president of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Com merce, for the term ending January 1, 1917: H. M.

In commenting on his appointments, Governor Cruce stated that he had ap pointed for the positions men whom he believed were qualified in every way for the important work they will have to carry on. He said that the other three names would be selected alter lie has considered ihe situation thoroughly and that the utmost care ! would be used in the selections. I Following the selection, Governor j Cruce called State Superintendent R. 1 11. Wilson into consultation with him and both agreed that the new board would act for the best interests of the ! education of the state. Statement of Wilson. "The selections, as far as I know, are satisfactory," said Mr. Wilson. 'Thursday afternoon. "I have known i.Mr. Duncan for a number of years and jknow him to be one of the best men in the state for the position, i un qualifiedly endorsed him to the gov ernor. I have met Mr. Wikoff. He. is a thorough and capable business man and while I do not know him inti mately, I have every reason to believe him to be a capable man and that he will render good service to the state. Dr. Fite, of Muskogee, I have known for two years and from what 1 know of him I believe his selection is a good one. 1 do not know Mr. Potter, but since 1 heard that the governor was considering him, I have made in quiries 1 believe he will be a service able member of the board and can emphatically say that I know of no reason why any of these men should not be approved. In my consultation with the gover nor," continued Mr, Wilson, "I made one request, that in selecting the board from among business men, if possible, he selected one lawyer and one doc tor. Past exeperience has taught me that there are likely to come up a number of little questions in connec tion with the work of the board where the adice and conunsel'of a good law yer would be very helpful. A great number of instances, also, where the advice and counsel of a good physician would be helpful It is my purpose, if the men are in time, to have a meeting of the board Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. If they should not be con firmed in time, then a meeting will he h- kl Tuesday or Wednesday of next ek ETO House Measures Would Repeal Bill Passed by 1911 Legislature Favor Death Penalty.

IV ABOLISH ROAD COMMISSION STEVENS' BANQUET TO VITA BOYS High School Boys Receive Banquet Are Feasted on Speeches And Eats Elect Baily Captain. The knell was sounded at tbe Con gregational church last night to the organization that was known as the state championship football team of the VinltB high school for the season of 1912, and to the football life of sev eral of its members. The ending was a glorious one. The boys were gather ed around a table in the dining room of the church and feated sumptuously, not as merely invited guests, but at a banquet given in their honor. As 1 they sat and feasted, their minds went back several weeks to the long after noons of practice, of discouragement and almost dispair when the happy affair they were now enjoying had been but a vision of a reward they would receive if they surmounted the barriers that stood between them and the goal of state championship, which later, assisted by the promise of Mr. Stevens, their host of last evening, and the loyal support of the town and the untiring efforts of their coaches, they attained. Mr. Stevens had offered the mthe banquet at a time when most needed and It was largely due to such support as he gave the mthat they have the splendid suc cess they do in their undertakings. Tho banquet well words cannot be found that, will do it justice, the tables were loaded with all kinds of good things to eat, everyone there en joyed the affair It coul density be seen. As is usual with such occasions merriment prevailed, they ate, talked, laughed and made speeches. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves. That as nearly describes the banquet sup per as is possible without your being fortunate enough io be present and experience it. As the last delicacy was disposed of and cigars were passed to the users of them, ReV. Burger, acting in the capacity of toastmaster arose and in 3 1 $13.98 for any Man's Suit 4 troduced the good things that weir to follow, in the shape of after dinner speeches. The first one Introduced was the coach, Mr. King, who de livered himself of a splendid address on the subject of "How We Did It," and he was followed by Cnpt. Scott, Mr. Kiddle. Judge Gill, Prof. Master son, Dr. Jackson and the host, Mr. Marshall Stevens, all telling the things pleasing and suitable for the happy occasion. The hour was among the most pleasantly spent in the mem ories of those present and one cannot hope for such good times very often and the boys feel more than thankful to their host and supporters a feel ing that can only be expressed in long, undying respect and friendship and he is assured that he holds that place in the hearts of every member of the team and the school. After the supper and tho hour spent In speeches the older visitors bid the boys good right and wished them best of success In all their later undertakings In life and took their leave while the boys gathered to gether to elect the captain who is to lead their squad of uext season. They unanimously chose their oldest and one of the fastest and most loyal mem bers of the squads, Elmer Bailey to lead them to victory, and again hang the state scalp on their hall next fall. The prospects were talked over and they look good. The school regrets the loss, through graduation in the. spring of the stars of this past sea son: Carter, Scott, Bonis and Frank lin, but are looking to see younger stars come to tho front and inspire the confidence for noxt year aa the above named have done in battles past.
