The citizens of Ada are
asked to help erect a Memorial Gateway at the Normal. Aside from the fact that this will be a monument to the boys of E. C. S. N. who fought our battles, it will be a source of pride for all our citizens. The teachers of the entire district are donating money for this monument. Should we. as citizens of Ada. do less?
They fought for us; we'll honor them.

President J. M. Gordon returned from Oklahoma City last night where he vent to look after matter:- concerning the Normal School. Sir Gordon went to the Secretary of State’s office and looked over the tolls that were passed having to do with East Central. He expressed himself as very much pie axed with the situation. The en-tire appropriation for the Normal j School at this time ;i mounts to ! $240,534.60. Taking out the $100,-! WHI for the new building leaves : $140 534.50 for the two years idling June 30. 1921. This is an I crease ot $25,386.50 over thai the last legislature.
I Sir. Gordon conferred with the , State Board of Public Affairs relaid ve to certain improvements for '.the president’s home and' th** rear-

There is considerable enthusiasm in tin school over the building of 11lie memorial gateway, the con ■ struction of the new building, and other improvements. It is hoped that tile gateway can be dedicated ' WMH tim** in the early part c f the sui*thef term and ground broken at ’the same time for the building.
to view As citaens we should meet th*' new world frankly.
No instifution met the war conditions more faithfully or contributed more, accordingly, to final victory than East Central. If you doubt the statement, ask any young man from East Central who saw service, and I am sure he will GLADLY tell you hts old school was faithful to her duty.
Those young men have a right to expect, and do expect, that their deeds, and their sacrifices, receive recognition. They wish to nee some monument to their deeds-—fittingly transmitting to posterity a remembrance of their fidelitv tn flag and country. As men we should satisfy that sentiment.
I believe every person in Ada will want to contribute to this fund and I brieve without question that we will raise the amount very’ easily E A. MacMILLAN
The people of Ada have an opportunity to help their town and pay a tribute to the students of the Normal who went to war. We will not look upon this as a duty, but as an obligation.
Six of these will not come back. Let us preserve their memory not only in our hearts, but on stone.

WASHINGTON, April 12.--Company I of the 339th infantry was identified today by General March as the unit which recently refused to return to the front line In the Archangel sector. A supplementary report said it was worthy of note that the questions the men put to their officers were identical “with questions which the Bolshevik! propaganda advised that they put to them.” General March did not indicate what the latest reports showed as to the present state of discipline among the American force.
To the Editor.
President Gordon’s appeal for funds to erect, at the entrance to the Normal grounds, a fitting memorial to the 400 young men who received, in part at least .their education at our state institution, should meet with the enthusiastic support of every lover of Ada and her great school.
The beautification of those grounds is an investment for every property owner in the city. It makes the environments of the pupils more attractive, broadens their education and I culturally speaking, food for their growing minds.
True it is, the war Is over, and many of those who played such a splendid part are again with us. New ideas, however, are crowding fast upon us, and the we J of yesterday has cone and a new ,*«4lon comes in-
