Double Checking

I'm going to be installing 6 inch white oak, locally milled. This will be the widest I've ever done. I've done up to 5.25. Now my mind is bringing up questions so I know I need to double check. customer doesn't really want screw and plug, my worry is cupping obviously. I was planning on nailing and stripes of glues spaced with nails, straight to the subfloor. Its a post and beam full basement and no moisture issues.
Is it possible to use paper and still glue? or is there something even easier I can use and skip the whole plan.
I'm having the customer rotate the flooring weekly while it acclimates for the next month.... Currently installing a kitchen, which will be photo worthy and I'll be posting that at the end of the month.

so yes no maybe?
