B Ardmorcitc Means "Ardmore Right!' "PEACE EXTRA" POPULAR YESTERDAY NOON The Ardmoreite found propel opportunity for the use of its 110-point type. A "Peace Extra" was issued, carrying a full account of the signing of the peace treaty at Versailles. The "scare heads" in two lines across the top of the front page, read: "WORLD WAR ENDS!. Peace Treaty Is Signed I" This newspaper never gets hysterical ,' .JjJ.ver news or near-news. When you find a sev- l en-column headline across tne top or me nrst page you may take it for granted that the news thus "played up" is important; and only news of absolutely major importance, such as .; came yesterday from Versailles, ever gets 110-1 point headlines in this newspaper. snmfi riainna vwif- hnir n Tnmiunnn m pa lrnm Ardmdre, are top-heavy every day with big "fright-heads," whether anything happens or not. They overload their first pages with big vi i j 'ji a ji. . i a: uiblk ijpe wiuiuui me Migm-cM piuvutanuii. When anything l-eally important happens, such as the Great Peace, such papers have no means of indicating the value of the news by increasing the size of their headline type, for the sim- pie reason that they use every day, or nearly ; every day, the largest type in stock. When you see it scare-headed in The Ardmoreite it's news; an dthe popularity of our ' "Peace Extra" sold on the streets throughout the city and in many towns in Ardmoreite ter-, ritory attested that our policy of playing up the news only when it is news is approved by the people. The Ardmoreite claims to be a newspaper. o ' HEADLINE HISTORY rp HE ARDMOREITE has been distinctive X amongst daily newspapers in refraining A'om iha use of "canned stuff" on its editorial Vage. Many dailies run largely to material purchased from syndicates. This sort of material is exceedingly plentiful and comparatively cheap in price also mostly cheap in quality. It is the belief of The Ardmoreite that its popularity has been enhanced through its policy of declining to fill up editorial-page space with cheap syndicated matter of the obvious and ordinary kind. Much, if not most, of the "feature" stuff offered to daily newspapers nowadays is very low-grade ore. Our readers prefer something intended for perusal by the . intelligent. Today The Ardmoreite begins the daily publication of a new and novel and highly in- tprparino- nnrl lnsfrnnrivp svnrli'nnrprl Fpntur-n "Headline History of the World War" will tell you at a glance, from day to day, just what big things happened in connection with the world war on the corresponding day in 1914, 1915, 191G, 1917 and 1918. For instance, the event from which the world war dates took place exactly five years ago yesterday, the day of the signing of the peace treaty this year. As The Ardmoreite did not issue a regular edition yesterday, the "Headline History" for June 28 and June 29 is published today. You will find in today's paper what happened on those two dates each year for the past five years, beginning with 'iiie assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdin-' whd, which set Europe ablaze and the blaze blew out only yesterday afternoon at 3:15 o'clock at Versailles. -' Those who follow this "Headline History" from day to day a few minutes each day will acquire a remarkably adequate, and highly valuable knowledge of the great war. The feature is prepared by an able newspaper man of New York who has followed the war closely. This is a worth-while syndicated feature, which is why The Ardmoreite has bought for its readers the exclusive publication rights in this territory. If you like it, won't you tell us so? Titanic Texas, through her legislature, swung into the suffrage column yesterday by ratifying the federal suffrage amendment. Archaic Arkansas is going to have a special session to follow suit. Verily these southern states are getting together in the big band-wagon of human progress. THE GREAT PEACE THE GREAT WAR is followed by the Great Peace. It was not a perfect war it might have been waged more like ix dispute between gentlemen, as in the cast) of our American civil war, for instance; but it wasn't. It may not be a perfect peace it might have conformed, in the treaty signed yesterday afternoon at Versailles, more nearly jio the exact principles of human justice; but it doesn't so conform in all respects. What of that? Perfection is not to be attained in a leap; it is of slow approach, and ever and always the goal lies .beyond. Those who oppose the Great Peace because of its imperfections are unreasonable sticklers for the absolute. In their mental processes, highly intelligent though they be, they are akin to the bol-shevists, who demand absolute and instant human liberty and happiness a condition palpably not of this imperfect world. The universe is in a process of evolution. Neither Rome nor the solar system was built in a day. But the stars sweep fbrward, and along with its mightier sidereal comrades sweeps forward this little stellar speck named Earth. In the vast scheme of things the world by which is meant here human society sweeps forward with "the process of the suns." Human society, like fowls and serpents, now and then must moult, casting off the old, putting on the new. The world just now is in one of its moulting periods. Let us be not impatient. The magnificent peacock plumage of Utopian perfectitude cannot be assumed with the stroke of a pen-point in the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles; the fine feathers must be given time to grow. The Great Peace promises well; it promises better than any other peace ever signed and sealed; it is the greatest peace because it follows the greatest war, and because within its conditions are expressed the highest hopes of humanity. We have prated of the Golden Ages past, of the period of Pericles, for instance. We of this day live in the Golden Age. There is more of the spiritual uplift in the religion of today than there has been in the religion of any period past and gone. In this year of our Lord 1919, the human race lives nearer to God and partakes more deeply of the Divine than has been the case in any year of recorded time. Less of the ape and more of the angel inheres in the human of today than has inhered at any time heretofore. Unless we believe this, unless the signs of the times indicate that such is the truth, then indeed must the world be Infidel and its name Anathema. Upon this beautiful Sabbath day in June, after five years of veritable hell on earth, the world finds itself entered upon what we are pleased to call the Great Peace. Yesterday was a wonderful day in human history. We speak sometimes of epochal events. The event at Versailles was epochal in a sense superlative. Representatives of nearly all the peoples of the world were gathered there, and each with the stroke of a pen gave solemn sign that his nation had reached agreement with the other nations as to the general direction along which the world must move forward in future. The guilty along with the innocent signed that tremendously impressive and important pact. Upon the part of the innocent at any rate it was a high resolve "that these dead shall not have died in vain," and that those who sleep in Flanders fields and otherwhere throughout the far-flung area of battle-death shall be vindicated in their supreme sacrifice. And unless we who survive see to it that justice rules where hitherto injustice has reigned, that the creed of the rights of man be the common creed of mankind rather than the dogma of the predominance of the so-called super-man unless we see to this, then indeed will these millions of dead have died in vain. Let us, then, accept the Great Peace with gratitude to the Divine principle or power that has permitted it to be brought about, and with reverent consecration to the ideal of right and righteousness go forward toward the greater peace unto which the Vision of Versailles points the up-trending way. In this there is no Utopian dream, for the world can do just that if it will. Absolute perfection, by the law of evolution, is and happily must remain unattainable progress being the law; but there is no law of the universe which forbids aspiration toward the ideal or binds the feet of men, or of nations of men, who aspire. Coming down from the abstract to the concrete, we believe most firmly that the Great Peace will give mankind a greater measure of "the upward looking and the light" and will tend toward making human life more worth while. THE IMPORTANT BOOK REVIEWS (Miami Dally News) Seems as how periodicals leave out tho most important book reviews. Novels and histories and books of poetry and all those are reviewed at length, but how about reviews of dad's bank book and mother's cook book and oth-' era along that line? They're the most ' Important booka of all, take it from the full assemblage of the family in council convened. Just to supply the deficiency here ore some of the book reviews the members of the family would like to see every week or so: DAD'S BANK BOOK This book Is filled with interesting reading in the first few. pages and the blank pages in the back of the volume pique the interest and arouse curiosity ad to just what will be indited there. Book is statistical In character with the last figures given not being as impressive as those first appearing in the book. IVrsons accomplished in reading between the lines can read "summer vacation" and "summer clothes" for the entire family into the last figures shown. MOTHER'S COOK BOOK Heavy looking volume. Jammed with the best sort of reading.

Mm HOTEL AND CAPITOL CORRIDOR GOSSIP FROM OKLAHOMA CITY ABOUT POLITICS AND PIFFLE Republican politicians recently in informal council in Leelluckins County" inaugurated a boom fur John Guluble or tluthrie, state senator from Logan county, for the republican nomination for United States senator to succeed T." T. Gore. Senator t Soluble's popularity over the stale and his long leadership In councils of the Oklahoma G. O. P. give great weight to claims of his friends that he .should be given preference In the senatorial primary Republican dopostors Insist that in the event of the nomination of Senator Gore thousands of democrats will either fail to vote or will bolt the senatorial offering and they are confident that in the event of (lore capturing the democratic nomination it will he an easy matter to elect n republican of statewide acquaintance, and they point to Senator (Soluble, us the natural choice when seeking the man who can not only poll tho entire vote of his party hut ulso corral many democratic votes. Col. A. A. Small of Tulsa has made a formal announcement of his candidacy for the republican senatorial nomination, hut no others tin yet have hurled their hats into the ring. Democrats from over the state who were statehouse visitors Tuesday and Wednesday were free in their prediction that It. Kchols. the most recently chosen memlx'r of tho slate corporation commission, will he chairman of that body when a reorganiza-tion is affected after a successor to Chairman Art J.,. Walker, resigned, Is unnouneed, probably on August 1. The retirement of Chairman Walker and the selection of another commissioner heartily in accord with the wishes of Governor Robertson, it is pointed out, is certain to result in n reorganization that will put ono of the governor's new appointees in the charimanship, und it is most reasonable to suppose that the honor will fall to Commissioner Kchols. Mr. Kchols, whoso homo Is at Elk City, was a former member of the stale senate und was appointed on the corporation commission u little more than 30 days ago. AVith the announcement from Wash inglon that both members of Oklahoma's senatorial delegation hive endorsed the appointment of Judge C. JJ. Ames as an assistant attorney general of the United Slates, his commission is expected at uny time. Gossip about tho hotels and statehousa is to the effect that Judge Amos will not seriously consider a senatorial candidacy after he accepts tho national ap pointment. Of the dozen or more, mentioned as possible candidates for flop's toga, Judge Ames is the first to be placed by the "loblcians" as probably out of the running. Hearty endorsement of the Owen-for presldent boom came from the Oklahoma democratic house members ihls week to Governor Robertson, chairmen of the statewide Owen club. The tele gram of the Sooner state congressman paid high tribute to Senator Owen's service und qualifications and will carry great weight with tho political d'.p-esters in other states. Hardly a Ouy posses that the officers of tho Owen Club are not put In touch with comment from Oklahomaus und other that encourages them In their effoits to place tho claims of this state for consideration in the next democratic convention in the foreground. An Oklahoma City newspaper missed Its guess when speculating upon the possibility of two contests for scats on the corporation commission. When Judge Humphrey resigned he hid i little less than two years to serve and Art L. Walker bad served only a few months of his six-year term when ho presented his resignation to Governor Robertson. Fred Parkinson, state examiner und Inspector, is the only person thus , far who is said to have his eyes on a place on the commission. "How are the women going to vote? What about the returned soldier whom many think have been dissatisfied because of one thing or another in connection with their service abroad and may blame the administration for this or that experience which they felt might have been averted?" The Oklahoma State League of Young Democrats intends to answer both of these questions and has set about in a most business like manner to seek the information. A statewide campaign or organization is almost ready to be .auacli ed, und ono of tho features of the work will bo a comprehensive poli of every voting precinct in the statu. The campaign for republican national committeeman from Oklahoma has not yet reached the iieated Proportions at which it can be compared with present weather conditions. Rut loblcians Insist that when the McGraw-llarris-Hunion-Geissler race fully materializes the drought of 1918 will bo as a nor'wester on Lake Superior as compared to the struggle for this G.
