WRITES PARENTS LETTER
Below we print a letter from the
Major of the Regiment of which
Grady Cox was a member at the
time of his death, expressing his
sympathy to the bereaved parents
in the loss of their son.
Port Sill, Okla., 5-4, 1918.
Mr. and Mrs. C. L. Cox,
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Cox :
In Whalf of each member of the

Major M. R. C.
This shows the real attitude of
the officers toward the men who
are under them and we feel that
their attitude toward t>ho soldiers
should be shown for the comfort
of the parents who have sons in
the army. *
In talking with j Oscar Cox who
was present at the! time of Grady’a
death, he has ask^d us to say for
the comfort of gll parents who
have sons in the service that there
is nothing that could be done for
the boys in the hospitals that is
They are absolutely given the
best attention that medical aid can
give and have every convenience
that science knows for their com-
fort. Aside from this the atti-
tude of the doctors and officers is
that of almost parental care. And

no mother or father need have any
fear that when their son is sick
at the army camps that there is
anything that could he done for
the welfare or comfort of the boys
that is not being done.

son is sick, and therefore we are
taking this occaaion to put it be-
fore the people, coming from one
who has been present through the
fatal illneaa of one of his family,
hoping that it will offset those ru-
mors that ao often have been
afloat to the contrary.
Biff Attendance Expected at Com
the Koy Note.
Comanche will have a very sue-
eessfnl Chautauqua Assembly this
summer if present indications
mean anything. Patriotism '-will
be the keynote of the program in
lectures, music, and entertainment
-—and the big tent will be made a
temple of loyal, military Ameri-
canism. It is a little too early yet
to go into details about the Chau-
tauqua plans, but they include
some very fine things and all the
signs point to a real *4 feast of rea-
son and flow of soul.”
Not many out of town vacations
will be spent this summer. War
conditions and high prices have
attended to that. But you won’t
have to leave Comanche to go vis-
iting or to find recreation and
amusement. The Chautaauqua will
bring you plenty of all these
things right to your door--and
you escape the trouble and discom-
fort aud expense of hot weather
The program for the five days
is one of the strongest ever offer-
ed in this section. It is nicely
varied with all sorts of interesting
features—plenty of music, enter-
tainment and fun, plenty of lec-
tures of the right sort—more than
enough to make the week delight-
ful and highly entertaining thru-
We are expecting a large num-
ber of our friends from the coun-
try in to take in the Chautauqua.
We hope they’ll make use of this
excellent chance to ease up on
some of their work for a little
while and mingle with us here in
Comanche and get better acquaint-
ed while enjoying some of the good
things of the Chautauqua.
We are looking for a good at
tendance also from Gustine, Proc-
tor, De Leon, llasse and Sipe
Comanche needs a .better amal-
gamation of folks hereabouts that
are worth their salt and more, call
it Commercial Club, Boosters’ Aa
sociation, Community Service Lea-
gue or anything else. It should in
elude everybody who has any in-
terest here, men, women, farmers
business and professional men. It
should work for the towu, com-
munity and Nation, all the time—
for industrial enterprises, good
roads, public improvements, gen-
eral public welfare—and to eo-
oporgte witl^ the Government ev
ery Way to help win the war..
The Chautauqua is the only com
munity event where even a fair
representation of the real people
who are the ones who must solve
community problems ever gather,
and it ought to be fostered, made
bigger and better. It ought to in
spire direct and immediate action
on community questions. It ought
to be made the rallying point for
patriotic service to the Nation. Ill
is worth standing by and buildlnf
President Wilson has urged that
the summer Chautauqua be car
ried on aa a patriotic duty. He-
terms the Chautauqua “an integ-
ral part of the National defense.
In every possible way the Chau-
tauqua are co-operating with the
Government. The Chautauqua has
become one of the most powerful
influences working to win the
