PA Kl S    ( OMMKNT REVEALS  SOURCES OF OPPOSITION TO MILITARY LIMITATIONS.  By the Associated Presa  PARIS, Feb. 15.—Comment in representative French newspapers on I he constitution of League of the Nations as presented at yesterday's plenary session of the peace conference reveals little enthusiasm. The Journal, one of the most widely circulated French papers, declares the French people must not lose sight of realities and insists that when “a seductive idea of disarmament is mentioned, it is our duty to ask plainly where are the guarantees and what is the force which will shelter us from a reaction of tragic surprises.” The Boho de Paris concludes a long article by saying “we are forced to conclude that the twenty-six articles bring us no security. Until they are changed w*e fcan sacrifice nothing of our means of defense to them.”    __  A Big Spring Showing  Coats, Suits,  In the Big Exclusive Ready-to-Wear Section of this Store.

The citizens of Ada will be interested in this report, as a number of them contributed money and enthusiasm to help secure Hie Unit. It is interesting to note that j in addition to tin* money that the young men spent in Ada while here the j government spent a little less than $12,000. Another interesting feature! is that of this amount $.VIT was spent outside of Ada. There was    I  t for salaries to the members of the Student Army Training Corps $5,670. iii is safe to say that a large part of this was left in Ada.
