Former Native To Build Million S
Hotel To Put Anadarko On The Map

—I-ogan Billingsley, brothel « l |
Sherman Billingsley, owner of the
New York Stork Club, today an-
nounced plans to build a 2lN -i-nom.
million-dollar tourist hotel in this
small southwestern Oklahoma city,
site of the annual American Indian
Plana will allow for future ex-
pansion to UMI or TlHi rooms.
Billingsley. a former native of
Anadarko, said he has decided to
build the hotel for "sentimental
reasons" and added, "I don't need
any financial help." J
Billingsley now a New York
City real estate broker, and builder
of "the Roosevelt Apartment Hotel
in the Bronx, said he first realized
the possibilities of a tourist trade
here when he visited the commun-
ity's 50th anniversary cellebration
last summer. Anadaioka holds
claim as the nation's Indian capitol.
"I don't wapt any stockholders,"
said Billingsley. "I want to build
this myself. We'll put Anadaroko
oil the map."
Billingsley, who first entered
this territory with his parents in
a covered wagon in 1901, said he |
plans to spend the next three week^l
here making arrangements. He
said plans would be drawn by Vahl-

Father Albert explained, in what
he said were some "casual obser-
vations" about the town, that the
"fine arts had been too long neg-
lected in Breckenridge". He said it
was important that this balancing
element become more evident in
life here, and -thift it was up to
the parents to learn to enjoy these

He praised teachers and the "he-

parents have allowed the schools
to become overburdened with some
of the things which should only be
taught in the home.
"This is one of the chief hind-
rances to good education", he de-
clared. "that the school is over-
loaded with responsibilities which
belong to the parent."
The minister also put part of
the blame on the schools, for think-

In revealing some of his deal-

"children for the most part in
America are undisciplined", and
warned "this disintigration of the
family is causing our society to
fall to pieces."
"We are too often concerned
with how to make a living", he
said, "rather than how to live".

Will Bring Joy
In The Future
Comfort can be added to home
grounds by planting trees for
shade, suggests Tom Joyce Cun-
ningham, county home demonstra-
tion agent. She points out, how-
ever, that careful planning should
precede planting so that there will
be both convenience and attract-
iveness without crowding.
Mrs. Cunningham says when
planting trees, place some for
shade, while others can be used to
screen barns and other outbuild-
ings and make windbreaks.
For appearance at least two
trees are needed on the front lawn
or side front for framing the
house. Remember to keep the front
lawn smooth and unbroken. Trees
with trimmed trunks will not break
the contour of the lawn, says Mrs.
For a background, plant at least
one large tree to show above tin-
roof so the long hard lines will be
softened. Use two. four, six. eight
or even more trees in the back. If
the house faces the north, the
flaming trees may be mimosa or
others that give scant shade but
are attractive. Shade is not needed
on the north side of the house. If
the house faces south or west,
plant trees that will make heavy-
Plant trees close enough to the
house to make shade but far
enough away so that the limbs of
the trees will not scrape. Large
trees should be 20 to HO or more
feet away from the building. Small
trees may be 10 to 15 feet away.
Again, it is important to prune the
trees so that the limbs vvill not
scrape the roof.
Trees are the most important
and most permanent of all plants
used in the landscape. Even though
they require the most room and
crowd out more plants and shrubs,
they more than pay for themselves
in shade and beauty.
With good care, which includes
watering and fertilizing, trees will
grow and be a pleasure forever.
