The Herald cannot condemn the lynching of the negro Tuesday morning at Noble, for the murder of W. A. Chaffin at Oklahoma City Sunday night. With the announcement of Gov. Cruce that the death penalty shall not be permitted while he is governor, for any crime, comes the hope to the heart of the would be criminal that sooner or later even if caught and convicted he will be freed and not required to pay full penalty for his misdeeds. The Herald does not uphold mob law, nor does it uphold the governor in his course. The object of punishment is not so much a punishment of crime as it is a preventative. In no way can the life that was snuffed out by the negro be brought back by punishing the guilty man, but a punishment of the man might deter others from doing likewise. The Herald, however, does admire the spirit of the governor when he says he will not start an investigation of the lynching. What’s the use? What man on a jury would vote to punish a man in such a case?
Dear Editor and Readers:
I wish to describe a little trip I took Sunday afternoon, as it was such an enjoyable one to me: The children and I took a stroll to the pine woods, the only pine timber in this section- how we did enjoy listening to the gentle breezes as they moaned through the evergreens. It brought back to the memory the happy days of childhood when we roamed the hills of dear old Arkansas with mother, sisters and brother, gathered mosses, ate the winter huckleberries and drank from the clear running brooks. Now if you from Arkansas get homesick, come out here and we will visit the place so much like our old Home Sweet Home. Mrs. Ola Tidwell
