PAGE TWO THE DALLE DAILY CHRONICLE. .WEDNESDAY, MAY 4. 1921. "THE LADY FROM OKLAHOMA" Close-up of our Congresswoman fly Ned Baldwin "She's some girl." The Hpeakcrs wore not streot cor ner loiterers commenting on a pass ing 1921 display of hosiery but mem bers of the National Press club of Washington, D. C, about as hard-head- ed and hardboiled a bunch as there la In America. The comment was made after Miss Alice Robertson, tho new congress woman from Oklahoma had finished a 15-minute heart to heart talk with the boys of the press on "baby con gressman night." Once each "year (ho newly elected senators and represen tatives are invited to visit tho super reporters of America and tell "why they are on earth." "The lady from Oklahoma" completely won the hearts of the newspaper boys by her sound common sense and the pathos and hu man interest in her wonderful life story. Just amoment please ladles! We'll pool our knowledge of what she wore and what she looks like right off. In dress as well as in every motion and word this sterling daughter of America gives the impression of 24 carat honesty. Thero isn't an ounce of pretense about her. Right in the mid die of her speech she admitted that she was six and sixty years old. Dress and Appearance. Medium or loss In height, rather stocky in build, sho gives the im presslon of strength rather than grace. Her dress was black, almost devoid of trimming. Some might have criticized It but to mo it seemed the acme of taste and n perfect harmony with her personality. Her hair Is gray, silvery gray, al most white. She scorns the false even in hair and wears no switch. Ago has taken its usual toll and the res idue left by tho thinning process of time is gathered up in an honeBt lit tle old lady's knot on tho top of hor head, That she despises some of tho shams of the day was shown by a little burlcsquo which she staged nt the beginning of her talk. After she had mounted the platform arranged In tho Press club for the "baby congressmen" she snt down In a chair and to the amusement and delight of tho press boys pulled puff and mirror out of a bag and be gan to powder her face. When the laughter died down sho remarked, "I J mivu never uio inis Dororo out I can't let these clerks and secretaries 1ioro In Washington get nhead of ma." Then sho told a happy story about tho man who took beer by tho teaspoonful on a doctor's prescrip tion, and tho audience wr.s hers.

"Miss Alice" as she is spoken of generally about the capltol and the 'house office building, has a skill in 'springing surprises that Is worthy of a seasoned sutmp speaker. Here was her next one.. "They ask me if 1 was born in Georgia. 1 toll 'em no, because my grandfather went over the plains Into Arkansas Just as soon as he got out of the penitentiary in Georgia." (Her grandfather was a mlsslonarv to the Indians In the early half of the past century. Some sort of charge was trumped up against him that he was fostering sedition among the Indians and he was convicted by the Georgia state courts and put in prison. The case went to tho supremo court of tho United States and was there decid ed In his favor but Georgia would not release him for two years. Representative Robertson 'is very, very proud of the missionary work of hor grandfather, her father and her mother, and her own efforts among the Indians. "I am prouder," said sho, "of being a member of the family which has more years of service to the Indians to its credit than any family in the United States than I am of the accident of being a member of congress.

Her voice lapsed into a pathetic strain that held her hearers spell bound as she -recounted some of the experiences of her remarkable life. Among her first recollections are those of being a refugee when a chl'.d of five, during the Civil war. She told of the long flight from the Confed erates to the federal camp and said she would never forget how good to her childish eyes Old Glory looked when they saw it in the distance. Her youth was rich in hardships. The struggle for existence by tho mission ary family was a hard one often they just kept above the line of suf ficient sustenance.
