but on a conservative basis It Is safe

In tne course of the talk Mr. Wilson
took occasion to commend the local

be commended by yoitr entire citizen

teachers the ImjHirUnce of training

appealed to his hearers to hold before

Mr. Wilson lert on the afternoon
(lain for Ok'.tiiouu City. Before leaf
ing he said, "My trip to Chickasha
at this time was solely to visit the
normal. Yes, I received a citation to
appear before, somebody for contempt
of court but I haven't read the docu
ment carefully and I don't know where
or when I am to appear. The college
trouble bad nothing to do with my
visit to Chickasha at this time. I have
been asked why Ir. Hcott declined to
speak at the commencement after
coming io Chickasha, and in reply I
will say that I know nothing about
It. I didn't even know Dr. Scott had
been Invited to speak, as I understood
that Dr. Oa.ve.i of Louisiana was to.
