Polo was also introduced to Ponca City by Marland. He organized a team and set up three different polo fields for practice and for competition. George Marland was very active on the Ponca City polo team and was quite a good player as well.
Six months before he died, Mr. Marland sold the complex to an order of monks, the Discalced Carmelite Fathers. He kept the chauffeur's cottage and the surrounding land and left both to Lydie in his will. The Discalced Carmelite Fathers established a college of philosophy at the mansion in 1941 and were cloistered there until 1948. They then sold the complex to the Sisters of St. Felix for $50,000.
The Felician sisters renamed the estate Assumption Villa, and operated a nunnery and high school at the mansion. The nuns themselves lived in the mansion on the upper level. They built the chapel and the administration building. They also built Angela Hall as a private high school; in the 1960s, they added a dormitory.
In 1975, the Felician sisters announced that they were planning to sell the mansion and surrounding property and move to New Mexico. Conoco offered to pay half of the purchase price if the City of Ponca City would pay the other half. A one-cent sales tax was proposed by the city to fund its part. Lydie Marland returned to Ponca City during this time and wrote a letter to the citizens, asking them to support the sales tax and to save the mansion. The sales tax issue did pass, and the City of Ponca City became the owner of the Marland Estate, including the mansion and all of the other buildings on the 30-acre complex. The total purchase price was $1.4 million.

When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to two minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, lead testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize lead exposure is available on the Environmental Protection Agency's website.
For example, 11 gallons of water are needed to irrigate and wash the fruit in one half-gallon container of orange juice. To grow, produce, package, and ship the beans that made your morning cup of coffee, 37 gallons of water were used. To produce one quart of milk, 264 gallons of water are required, and 4,200 gallons are required to produce two pounds of beef.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American uses about 100 gallons of water daily. The annual American per capita water footprint is about 8,000 cubic feet; that is twice the global per capita average.
With water use increasing six-fold in the past century, our demands for fresh water are rapidly outstripping what the planet can replenish. Check out your own water footprint on the H20 Conserve website. You can also visit the Water Footprint website to see how your water footprint compares to those of other nations.
