Oklahoma Automobile
Route This Way
Last Thursday evening a party
of about thirty strong, consisting
of the good businessmen from
Holly. Bristol and Sheridan Lake,
stormed in on us for the purpose
of informing the live wires of
this city of a new proposed high
way route that was being estab
lished from Oklahoma City to
Denver and which had already
been routed as far as Holly
These men, having a brotherly
feeling for their sister city to the
north of them (ourtown) decided
to come up here and let us know
all about this route and try and
pursuade our boys to head the
new route this way over our G.
P. C. Highway, of course that is
the only logical route for the new
highway and naturally, it must
come this way.
Help Our High
School Library!
All book3 and back numbers of
magazines donated to the High

stock room. If you have any
books or magazines that will help
out, call Mr. Graves at the High

chased about ten head of those <
; fine exhibition hogs. He did not 1
I confine himself to one certain j
breed eyther, for he purchased a
few Duroc- Jerseys, a couple with
the white belt nnd two or three
Chester-Whites. Guess he fig
ured if one didn’t matte good,
the other would—hey, Ike?
F. H. Murdock, a representa
tive from the Matheson coal mine
over in Elbert county, spent the
latter pai t of last week in this
, city on business connected with
his company. The Record force
is quite well acquainted with Mr.
Murdock having made his ac
quaintance o\er in the Arkansas
Valley, nnd as a result we had
the pleasure of enjoying a very
; nice visit—talking about our old
valley friends.
