We have been promised some very interesting articles on important subjects that will appear in the Chronicles from time to time. These articles will be written by those who are conversant with the facts as they pertain to the different subjects. We have been very careful in the assignment of these subjects, endeavoring to get the best possible results. History is what we are after, and the subjects mentioned below have had to do with the historical events of this country. While all of these subjects have not been assigned, a number of them have, and the remainder will be as soon as we can get the proper ones to accept the responsibility.

Here are some of the subjects we wish to have discussed in the Chronicles:
(1) Politics and Political Leaders of the Cherokee Nation.
(2) Politics and Political Leaders of the Creek Nation.
(3) Politics and Political Leaders of the Choctaw Nation.
(4) Politics and Political Leaders of the Chickasaw Nation.
(5) Politics and Political Leaders of the Seminole Nation.
(6) Organization of Political Parties in the Indian Territory.

(8) Early attempt at Education among the Five Civilized Tribes.

These are very important subjects, and we hope to have them intelligently presented to the readers of Chronicles of Oklahoma in due time.

This office receives requests nearly every day for information concerning historical facts relative to Oklahoma that can be found in Chronicles of Oklahoma; these requests largely are from our schools, and we are wondering if the Chronicles are taken out of the school library by some individual for private use? This publication is for the student body in particular, and strictly speaking, the property of the state, and supposed to remain in the library for reference. We suggest that the school authorities call attention to this fact, thus preserving for future use much valuable information that is costing the state considerable money that the present and future citizens of our country may be conversant with the history of the great West. In saying this we are not trying to shirk responsibility; we are ready to assist you in any matter that we can, but why not do a little research work at home before making requests of this office; especially when the very thing you want is in your library, or should be,—not in every instance is this so, but in a number of instances it is.

As an accredited school, if you find in checking up that you are short of certain numbers of the Chronicles, let us know and we will furnish them to you for the school and research workers.

J. Y. BRYCE, Sec’y.
