CITY DERIVES UNTOLD BENEFIT .1 FROM TWO-HOUR ENTERTAINMENT (From Tulsa World, June 13th) The Realtors enjoyed their trip immensely. Sallisaw, county seat of Sequoyah county, placed itself upon the map of the United States through its joyful, whole-hearted reception and entertainment and every returning Realtor is singing the praises of that little city. The brief stop at Sallisaw was easily ono-of-the-features-of the. tour. K . The visiting realtors from every section of the United States came to Sallisaw last Friday, Jung eleventh* : thay saw Sallisaw, and Sallisaw conquered them. They frankly said so and they left Sequoyah ..Q0j ^y: ,,jjj $ti words of highest praise and admira tion and thanks and if indications are correct, they will keep on singing ' Upraises for many months to come. . The most eventful day of the whole . year broke clear and the. visitors •'A started from Tulsa, where the ;na- ttonal convention was being held/ at $:36 a. iur~ Tie delegates had been ; |^p ^enBly v invited ^n^jtfte: auto| :W *our through northeast (JkWboinft and .** fcortir*|ftrt Ai|f »n ^-and^a»' one ••^M^mt^^iia forthe trip. An* tooiobiles Had been provided at# the •. s ; entire trip Was made by. auto, "#fee •; visitors ate. dinner at Muskogee and ^confibtiuecl toW4rd Sallisaw soon after, ^arriving here about 3:45 p. l m. The .^ream of automobiles continued for 'ttfere than art hour ,with four large , Wardway buses included in the caravan* It was estimated that inear 1200 visitors passed through Sallisaw during that short period of 4ime, and all of them stopped and partook of the refreshments which had been provided, Which included , delicious sandwiches furnished by the women of Sallisaw and Marble City, and also of ice cold bottled Nugrape, supplied by the Romans Bottling Works. The deli eioussandwiches and Nugrape were served by twenty five of Sallisaw's most winson$e and attractive young ladies and the^did themselves proud. The serving tables' were arranged on the outer edge' of the sidewalk on Cherokee avenue, starting at' the' Palace Drug Store and continuing .west to the Blakely-Woodward store. .Every visitor who stopped, was fur- aished* delicious 8andwich .,and£ot.tle. Nugrape and compliments by the ,- score were heaped upon those wh. were dispensing the refreshments. Addition, several hundred sou-; - venir pencils were given away by the Ad Club committee in charger-of the ' big affair arid" also two thousand at* tractive folders depicting the fine points > in regard to Sequoyah county I and inviting the homeseeker and the investor to come here and locate. F. ' W. Ahrens, leading realtor here, was .named-last month as chairman of the '' edmmittee to handle the entertainment arid make it an entire success, and lie was also-empowered to draft any cit' 'izen of Sallisaw to help bring about • the desired results. As a consequence a score or more of citizens were called ' upon to greetine-visitors and bid ther- welcome an dmake their stop pleasant and enjoyable;«These men rendered in- valuable service and had much to do with the success of the day. • The entertainment feature which seemed to attract most attention and arouse most comment, was the first, round, arranged • at-the new bridge across Sallisaw creek near the water• Works dam. This feature had. been worked out by Jas. L. McDonald, ably assisted by Gerald Flowers and Joe / Hail both of whom were black face • characters and -with Gerald Flowers • representing-.the character "Sally." They were befittingly dressed. These three men halted every traveler who approached the bridge and handed them a neatly printed card setting forth what "Sally" saw and urging the visitors to keep their eyes open and try to also see what "Sally-saw." The card made a great hit, and by the time the visitors reached the city, .they were irt happy mood and the reception accorded them by the towi} folk was SO Cordial and whole-hearted that each person departed with words of highest praise upon their 1 iipa and with Warm memories of the livelst little city in eastern Oklahoma. They said so frankly, and a booster,, from Florida delivered a brief talk extending thanks and stating that "he had "vMte^big citieTand" little ones as well but that Sallisaw had the world beaten for entertainment." His remarks seem ed to reflect the spirit and the reel­ ings of every man, woman and child who stopped. The realtors were from MRS. J. C.

The visitors throughout the balance of the tour, continually referred "to Sallisaw and more than once cheers were heard for our city. A follow up campaign of advertising and direct correspondence is being planned by Ad Club officials, with every visitor who came. Chairman Ahrens and President W. A. Peters of the Ad'Club this week are extending personal thanks to every person whom they can search out who had a part in the reception and entertainment but fearing that they would not reach all, asked The Democrat to express their sincere thanks and deep appreciation to every one who aided and who made possible the successful day, and particularly the citizens of Marble City who joined with Sallisaw and "gave, .such able assistance - throughout, .the. .day ness worldT Her future plans are riot 1 handed.

He defeated Sam Point er two up Sunday afternoon in the finals. The game went the entire thirty-six holes. Campbell was down at the 30th hole and had only 6 more holes to. go- He had to win them in order to witt the cuP, so he .began spectacular putting and won the last six holes. He sank his putts from the far corners of the greens and on one shot-holed out from the grass embankment with a splendid. masjije shot., This proved to be the turning, point of the game : and Pointer cracked, as tho' someone had hit him with a sledge hammer. Campbell was down from" the beginning of the feame until he won the 35th hole. The winner had a hand! cap of four strokes and he won three of the four handicap holes and halved the other. Pointer was the betting favorite and the dope Was completely-upset. Pointer fought his way to the finals by defeating B'reedlove, Arnfield and Drake while Campbell won over Wheeler, Bdydston > and - P. Frye. offices over the Citizens Nationul Bank. His selection as manager here was decided upon last month but state headquarters, concluded' to withhold announcement of same until the latter part of June. No man in the county enjoys a wider acquaintance and knows the political situation as well 1 as does Harry Pitchford, and he has handled two successful campaigns within recent years. He has served a'sf county attorney for three years past- and recently/tendered his resignation' to re-enter private practice. Governor Trapp has many supporters in Sequoyah county and Mr. Pitchford is already hard at work, assembling this support and mapping out an intensive campaign for^the next seven weeks. . — o ; - SON OF MR.
