Chauffeur On Payroll Of
Health Department
Oklahoma Gity, Okla., Oct. 23.-(By
A. P.)--Gov. J. C. Walton was sus-
pended from office at 6:40 p. m. when
the state senate by a vote of 36 to 1
adopted a resolution relieving him.
of his official duties following the sub-
mission by the lower house of a bill of
impeachment against him.
Charge Corrupt Agreement
The impeachment bill charged the
executive with entering, "into a cor-
rupt agreement" with Dr. A. E. Daven-
port, state health comnissioner to
place T. T. Edwards, the governor's
personal chauffeur on the payroll of
the Health department at $200 per
month and that thereby "certain mon-
eys were diverted from the statutory
objects for which they were appro-
priated by law."
The suspension resolution was in-
troduced by Sen. W. G. Gulager, of
Muskogee. A committee was named
to inform the Governor and the blieu-
tenant Governor of the action.
Oklahoma City, Oct. 23.-(By A. P.)
-Governor Walton was among the
last to leave the darkened state house
tonight. With a small group of
friends he walked slowly down the
stairway to the main floor.
"We still consider you our govern-
or", one of the group said quietly.
The governor made no answer.
He halted briefly to read a copy
of the Senate resolution suspending
him from office which a press repre-
sentative handed hin.
"The vote was 35 to 1 for the reso-
lution," the Governor was .told
"Who voted for me?" he inquired in
a low voice.
''Senator Barker."
The executive inquired about three
other votes all of which had been
cast against him. He declined to
make any statement.
Appointed for the purpose of consid-
ering the stadium ,problem at the
University, Fielding H. Yost, Director
of Intercollegiate Athletics, and C. D.
DuCharme, '06, of Detroit, an alumni
member of the Board in Control of
