Ifs Up To the People Hie people of Ada who desire to see public improvements in keeping with the general progress of the town in other respects wall have to wake up and get busy or else be content to see Ada take her stand in the coun-try town class and remain there indefinitely. No other one thing'advertises a town as readily as a liberal amount ol street paving in places where it is practical and where it is actually need- No one wants to burden the community with unnecessary expense or pixes, yet we can hardly believe that there is a citizen or property holder in Ada w ho wants to leave property values where they are and remain in the country town class simply to evade    the payment    of    a    little    street    pav ing tax immediately. • %/ Property always advances more than enough to cover the cost of paving, which fact alone should be argument enough for the paving but w hen the luxury of the thing to the property owner himself and the general amantage to the community as a whole is taken into consideration it is hard to see w here any reasonable argument could be advanced against it. Hundreds of cities in the middle west, and many of them in Oklaho-!Va’ *10 ,la.r£®r *ian Ada> have miles of paving to where we have blocks, and ie fact that they are still paving—in fact have never stopped paving— should be proof sufficient that it pays and pays well. Mam Ada citizens have reached this conclusion—and many of them are leady and willing to pave—but just as we are ready to start we are confronted with a problem that must be solved or else all our good intentions will be of naught. \\ e refer to the fact that already there are petitions filed with the city* commissioners asking for about forty blocks of paving—and in the disney where it is most needed—but    it is    useless to-    pave    until    permanent water main and sewer construction    has    been done. tint ,3,°"ns?!ld’ Broadway Rennie and possibly one or two other impor-!hn >li K t veS ?.°li    .’e Paved—and the people are willing that they knn« «• htrti .Can. ll * donue’ aceordin* to the city commissioners who -\aie talking about, until these other improvements and extensions are made.

The argument put forth by Brockdorf-Rantzau was that Germany did not start a war of aggression; that the German people were convinced that they fought a defensive war and could not be held responsible for - the faults of the former emperor. Premier Clenienceau took up ,the points made by the Germans and declared that the German government last November made no protest against the charge by Secretary of State Lansing that Germany was the aggressor.

M.)—The American seaplane NC-4 will not start for Lisbon from Pon-ta Del Gada today according to a wireless dispatch received here by the American naval authorities. One of the engines of the seaplane is 'ailing to work satisfactorily making postponement of the flight imperative. The NC-1 sank at sea after being towed o the entrance of. the harbor and the NC-3, w'hich suffered severe injuries, is being dismantled preparatory to being shipped back to the United States. If the NC-4 reaches Lisbon, 800 miles away, the next flight will be to Plymouth,’ England. By the Associated Press ST. JOHNS, N. F., May 21.—The skeleton of Frederick P.

Morgan indicated he would not fly with Raynham when he recovered fi'om his injuries received when the machine xvas wrecked; but said he would make an effort to obtain a new plane and start an independent flight for the British Isles. Airmen here believe that in view of the fact that nothing has been heard from Hawker that his radio failed shortly after leaving here.
