Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - April 19, 1919, Ada, Oklahoma VOLUME XVI. NUMBER 32 ADA, OKLAHOMA, SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 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 something finer and better than usual. These are the kind of clothes you'll find here, for both men and styles, a variety to choose ones and good values. WE- KKXTRM AND S1AL- UMIY OK WIN TKK- MS POl'liLES. hE I'HONB STRIHK.
