United Methodist Church Okie Catfish, Old Crow, Dizzy Giggler, Fly Rod, Blood Hound, Brae Buster, Jay Hawker, Paper Slinger Got None, Tack Hammer, and Okie Smokey. There are hundreds more, and very few are the same. One wonders where all .these come from. Over by Cushing, we heard one give his handle as "All Taken." His CB Buddy asked him to come again because he didn't under- stand that. The voice on the comeback said, "I tried to think up a handle, but they were all taken, so I just settled on 'All Taken' ". We were coming back through Drumright and Oilton one evening about dark, and the conversation on the CB airwaves was about a Smokey in the area somewhere. This one CB'er was having difficulty in pinning down just where the Bear was, when a deep, military like voice came clearly over the CB's, "If all of you would drive with in the speed limits you would not have to worry about ME." You could hear a pin drop all over Creek county. -o- Sound Off! (From Page 1) "Power of the Pen". (Apri 25, 1977 issue)-- "Law and order remains a hot issue in the 1977 session of the Legislature. It seems that every other bill is on the subject. This is particularly inter- esting in light of a Justice Department report issued last week. It proves anew that if you want to be a criminal, be sure and go into white collar crime. Even if you fail at it, the punishment is slim or none. Only a year ago the federal government successfully prosecuted 23 firms and 48 corporate executives for rigging prices on cardboard boxes.-The roughest sen- tence was 60 days, knocked down finally to 15 days to be served nights and weekends. How come? An Oklahoman whose , greatness was recognized only after his death--typical- ly Oklahoman, eh?--once summed it up in a single sonnet: Woody Guthrie wrote "As through this world I've rambled--I've seen lots of funny men-- some rob you with a six gun--and some with a fountain pen." One who in no way "robs you with his pen and is interested in law and order from a historical viewpoint, at least, is Glenn Shirley. The Perkins man, we claim, has just published "Red yesterdays". The western novel depicts characters and events concerning wild Indi- ans," bullfighters and bull- doggers, bronco busters, heroes in petticoats, rapists and rogues. His recent book review gave some highlights of the book:"Black Beaver, the WE California Navel Patio"Assorted" I]ll !!! .............. ,il  BAG Assorted Flavors Abe Lincoln of the Dela- wares. "did all he could to encourage billigerent tribes to accept reservation life. He interpreted for every agent and missionary in the Territory, made oral transla- tions of the Bible and was in demand as a speechmaker." Shirley calls the man "the most prominent of all Indians." The "Dusky Demon," sometimes known as the black cowboy, learn-bulldog- ging from his own bulldog, Spike. Bill Pickett originated the quick twist of the horns which brought the steer's nose upward. The relatively small cowboy then clamped his big teeth into the cow's upper lip rendering much pain to the animal bringing it down, just as Pickett had seen his bulldog do. Billy McGinty, who work- ed with cowboys on the Turkey Track Ranch, came to know some members of the Doolin gang there. The former Rough Rider was known as the "pint sized brahe twister." From "Women of Des- tiny" to "Rogues and Rapists", the author reveals little known or forgotten parts of the Red Yesterdays. Perhaps, the Oklahoma author feels, history has chosen to forget them. The Cherokee Strip Opening has a history of at least three hangings over land disputes. The "Mad Artist of McAles- ter", who murdered his wife, later produced over 50 M' BAGS 4 5 OZ. pkgs.

Many such esca- pades bid farewell to the red It was certainly spelled wrong, but she agreed it smelled the same!
