Mr. Mayshark is from Oklahoma City, and lias been superintendent of the Ada Laundry plant while Mr. Eagar was    manager. They are men who know every part of the laundry business and no doubt will make of the new laundry a phenomenal success.    The new j company will be capitalized at $25,000, most of v.h'ch has a1 re ad; been subscribed. The name of the i Laundry will be The    Ame. iran Steam Laundry. Papers were made out today for a charter and the new company will get busy just as soon as the charter is granted. Mi. A. B.

Robison, formerly superintendent of the city schools of Ada, has icairned his position as principal of one of the ward schools in Oklahoma City and has accepted a j position w it*, the Ford Motor Com-* patly. In hi> new position he is in charge of all the employees, looking alter the matter of employing new workers, looking after their welfare while at work and the conditions surrounding them at home. Mr. Robison is well fitted for a place of th is kind and will be a valuable man in the Ford organi-zit f.i. He gave up the school work only after he had been Urged to accept this position, it being tendered to him before he kuew un) thing about ll. The latest reports concerning the Oil cbaie well winch came in Monday evening Hie most favorable and eeuis to justify me rosy predictions •' inch have been made about the oil ‘inuit ut Pontotoc county. This welt tends to prove a part of the Fra.leis held about which there as some doubt, cor that reason cut on fraternity watched the diiil-.ug with keen interest. i he eaxct pi on action of the well is not known at present and will not be ascertained until the bit fs ai I veil iuiiner into the sand. Secretary \\ ebb has arranged for storage tanks to hold the oil which will aul be ready beioie the last of the week. Many estimates have been made as to the ultimate capacity ot the well, figures ranging ail the way from 5 2to 150 barrels. At present the oil sand has been peue-irated only 9 feet, so that its thickness is not possible to state at this time. It is certain, however, that the quality of the oil is good, being 24 gravity, worth $2.00 barrel. A representative of Francis refinery stated that compauv was ready to buy the just as soon as it was placed the tanks. A Long; Struggle. The men at the head of the State company are to be commended for the way they have stuck to their guns. Their faith in their undertaking never faltered in spite of discouragements that would have caused many a promoter to abandon the work. They are entitled to the congratulations they are receiving and their friends which them still further success. In this connection it might bo well to add a word regarding oil matters. To make an oil company successful three things are absolutely necessary, time, money and ; good management. The stockholders must have patience and the j management must have perseverance. The manages of the Oil Stat*1 company certainly have shown the ( latter quality. Messrs. Webb and Glitches have refused all offers to go to Texas, I feeling th**ir duty lay at home where I their stockholders had sunk their money. Now that they have a good well, they may be relied upon to letively develope the rest sf their valuable acreage. tty tin* Associate! I'rcss PARIS, May 14.—Renewed efforts are being made by the British delegation to secure an agreement calling for the pooling of former German merchant vessels and their distribution on a basis of tonnage lost by each nation during the war instead of the plan of the United States for retaining the ships interned in American ports prior to her entering the war. Poland is laying claim to some of the warships surrendered by Germany. per the his oil in Oil WILL RECEIVE A NOVEL IDEA BUT A 0000 ONE LOR AOA It is generally recognized that Ada has many wonderful advantages not enjoyed by other cities of the size .and larger, but the fact remains that it is lacking in respect to places of amusement and recreation. If w e are going to take away I the evils that we all agree should be taken away. it is going to be necessary to substitute something better. Then, too, it is a fact that the traveling public is not so much inclined to remain over Sunday in i Ada as they are in places where all kinds of recreation and innocent amusement can be indulged in. In talking with the mayor oil i this point he suggested to the writ-1 cr what seems to he a solution to j the whole problem, or rather a( plan that would an nearly approach a solution as anything we can imagine at this time. The suggestion was a natatorium ' iud skating rink at the city park. properly constructed and operated under city supervision. A twenty thousand dollar bond issue would put the thing over in I goods shape, the mayor believes, and there is n > doubt'but that it would he self sustaining from the start and ultimately a revenue getter for the city. It would at least soon pay itself out, and that Is what is desired after all. This is a proposition that deserves Die serious consideration of every citizen who wants to see Ada get into the metropolitan class, and at the same time see something provided for the youth of the community that will keep them at home and give them the advantages for amusement and recreation which they are going to have one way or another.
