PARIS, Feb. 15.—Comment in representative French newspapers on I he constitution of League of the Nations as presented at yesterday's plenary session of the peace conference reveals little enthusiasm. The Journal, one of the most widely circulated French papers, declares the French people must not lose sight of realities and insists that when “a seductive idea of disarmament is mentioned, it is our duty to ask plainly where are the guarantees and what is the force which will shelter us from a reaction of tragic surprises.” The Boho de Paris concludes a long article by saying “we are forced to conclude that the twenty-six articles bring us no security. Until they are changed w*e fcan sacrifice nothing of our means of defense to them.” __

President Gordon has ipst completed a report to the Government regarding the outlay for the Student Army Training Corps. The citizens of Ada will be interested in this report, as a number of them contributed money and enthusiasm to help secure Hie Unit. It is interesting to note that j in addition to tin* money that the young men spent in Ada while here the j government spent a little less than $12,000. Another interesting feature! is that of this amount $.VIT was spent outside of Ada. There was I
t for salaries to the members of the Student Army Training Corps $5,670. iii is safe to say that a large part of this was left in Ada. A careful pe- j lineal or the itemized statement below will show’ the various kinds of J ’firms and enterprises with whom the money was spent. One man. a local j dentist, who did something like $70 worth of dental work for the S. A. T. C.» would make no charge at all, asking the privilege to contribute this much to the government’s cause.
