         This fair is conducted under the provisions of and by authority of the Free Fair
Laws of Oklahoma.
         It is the purpose of the Free Fair Association to make the Free Fair an educational
institution and to encourage cooperation among the citizens of Washita County.
         The management of the County Fair is in the hands of the County Free Fair
Association, which is composed of three members elected from each commissioner’s
district in the county.
         The County Free Fair is financed by taxation. No admission charge will be made
and no entry fee will be charged.
         We have secured competent judges, in all departments and we feel their decisions
will be fair, and the explanations from them will pay you well for your trouble of
