Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - April 18, 1919, Ada, Oklahoma WIyt Hba Cbentng i^etos volume xvi. NUMBER 31 ADA, OKLAHOMA. FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 1919 TWO CENTS THE COPY. Welcome Athletes and Visitors Easter Clothes for Men and Women Everybody will want to dress-up. This year we feel that Easter is bringing a new birth to the world; time honored institutions and traditions have gone; new ideals of democracy have come. This same spirit has been carried over into clothes buying; it shows in the desire for new’styles, fresh fabrics — something finer and better than usual.    • These are the kind of clothes you'll find here, for ?>oth men and women—new styles, a variety to choose from—live ones and good values.

With the great summer school in session, this can be made an occasion long to be remembered. Mr. Gordon, as well as the other members of the faculty is delighted over the way the campaign to raise the funds    for this memorial    has been received and handled.

The great parade next Tuesday lo welcome the soldiers, sailors and marines home is creating interest all over the county.
