The visitors to this Bhow tonight will witness three good pictures.  • The Lighting Raiders,” is a good one. In addition will be seen Harold Lloyd in "I’m On My Way’ and a big V. comedy “Bums and Boarders” This makes up a tasty program.  Dr. Theodore Hanson of Kansas City, manager and general superintendent of the National Public Welfare League, presented his opening address last evening at the First Methodist church.  Tile National League is promoting the welfare department in the units of government, city, county aud state.  'Emphasis is laid on the fact that organized society, the body politic, mast assume the responsibility of dealing with the causes of our social ills rather than simply handling the product.”  Dr. Hanson advocates the policy ’hat "Efficiency in government is not building institutes to house the social wreckage but rather to eliminate the cause which occasions the downfall of our boys and girls, and in the place of playing the roll of ‘big police” we must supply the big brother’ spirit.”  The speaker deals very definitely with the public amusements as an outstanding destructive or construe-ti\ e element in character building. ' The community play-life either supplements and bulwarks the school and church and home or. it runs lankly undermines the  counter and efficiency of However, advocate th* amusements, community new sKK’ial  all'  Dr  elimination blit insists is responsible order, where than  Quitman Prewett is back home from overseas service, having received his discharge from the army.

The speaker further insists that "The body community must be held responsible to se** that the proper physical and sanitary conditions are furnished in the home life of all the boys and girls.”  Stating also that "we are very particular with respect to our obligations to the murderers and criminals. whom we place in our penitentiaries, to see that all modern and sanitary appliances are furnished. to see that the institution is kept clean and wholesome.” Then why should not society be as much interested in the multitude of boys and girls outside of our penal institutes living; in unsanitary and unwholesome conditions?  He insists that "it is cheaper from the standpoint of economy. only, to build out of the boy* and girls a constructive citizenship than to handle them or to care for them after they have gone wrong. He opened our eyes when he said that, “Crime alone in the United States costs more than the education of all our children.” Thus showing us how “Religion has unfortunately been too closely connected with death and not enough with’ life.” Those who were present on the occasion of the meeting last evening were impressed with the sincerity of Dr. Hanson’s message and it certainly behooves every citizen of Ada to improve this opportunity to acquaint himself with this great modern movement.  The mothers, especially, are urg*d to be present at the service to be held at the church Tuesday afternoon at 3 o’clock when the subject Under discussion will be, “Prevention. Not Cure.” "The \\ hat, Why and How” will be the subject under discussion at the evening service on tomorrow evening at 7:45 o’clock.  The committee appointed last night consists of J. M. Gordon, W. \Y. Sledge, R. E. Blanks, Mrs. C. L. Orr, Mrs. Byron Norrell, Mrs. J. Bowd, Gary Kitchens, Rev. S. Damron. Mrs. H. A. Fairchild*,  E. Hickman, Robt. \tflmbish, W.

American embassy at Mexico City w*as today instructed to make inquiries concerning the report that Mexican government had granted agricultural concessions to Japanese in Lower California and report the facts immediately. As no official information had reached the state department, yesterday** dispatches regarding concession to Japanese created a surprise in official circles. The American government is interested because of apparent Japanese success in ob-j taming a long sought foothold in ! bowet California and because the I land involved was developed and is  1  claimed by an American company whose rights w*ere declared forfeited bv the Mexican government on April ‘ 7*. 1917.  Reports from Mexico City.  .MEXICO CITY. March 31.—That Japanese corporations have been granted concessions to exploit agricultural lands in Lower California was the statement made Saturday by General Amado Aguirre, Undersecretary of Development and Agriculture.  The affirmation was made, however. that the concessions were fully authorized by the provisions of the Mexican Constitution regarding the area and position of the territory in relation to the ocean shore and the frontier line.  There was nothing in the concessions. it was asserted by the undersecretary, that might possibly lead to difficulty as far as the Monroe Doctrine w*as concerned.  Report* that there is a possibility of international controversy over the granting of the concessions to the Japanese were said to be absurd by General Amado Aguirre in an interview* earlier In the day, in w*hich he said the action was legal. At that time he would not admit the concessions had been granted. The Japanese legation here denied it had any official knowledge of the action.
