In the city elections last Tuesday Durant elected four progressive citizens as aldermen: H. C. Frye, J. R. McKinney, E. C. Terrill, and Horace Marshall. With the influence of these men brought to bear on city affairs perhaps better government will be realized. Every town owes itself the treat of having its best men to direct its financial affairs.
Judge W. F. Freeman, of Ardmore, has withdrawn from the race for congress from this district. This leaves the field clear for Hon. C. D. Carter who has served us so well since statehood. It is but a fitting tribute to our congressman that he should be elected without opposition this time. His services have been so distinguished and so faithful that it is doubtful if any man in the district can make an impression against him. There could be no good reason for a change. Some might desire it for personal ambition or to vent disappointment, but the great body of the people have little interest in those things.
The organization of the democratic club in Caddo means that democrats mean business. They believe what they believe, and they are proud of the record the party has made, both in state and nation. The club will enlist every man possible into active work. People who think and are informed, and who are not prejudiced know that the Democratic Party has made good in the handling of the government and the club proposes to see that the people are informed. Every good democrat should become a member of this club. Don’t wait for the committee to solicit you, but see them and have your name enrolled at once. The secretary, Dr. Rappolee, will be glad to take your name.
The box supper given by pupils and teachers of the grammar school at the W. O. W. hall last Friday night was a success, though rain did interfere. The house was full of people; the little girls had prepared plenty of boxes, and the boys were liberal in buying. $25 was realized, which money will be used toward equipping the playgrounds at the school building.
Last Sunday the Christian Endeavor held their quarterly meeting and elected officers as follows:
Miss Jewel Jennings, Pres.
Ira Smiser, Secretary
Miss Kathleen Harris, Musician
Program committee: Miss Myrtle Malone, Prentis Mead, and Mrs. B. S. Smiser.
