Charles Eoans Hughes For League of Nations But Suggests Changes
By th# Associated Press
WASHINGTON. July 28. Charles Evans Hughes, in an opinion ex-pres ed in a letter today to Senator Frederick Hale, of Maine, declared that there was evident need for a league of nations, but suggested many reservations, the principal one being that whenever two
years notice shall have been served by any league member, the power giving the notice shall ceases to be a member but will still remain
liable for any debt or obligation
Hughes suggested that article twenty-one of the covenant be interpreted that the United States does not delinquish its traditional attitude toward purely American questions, and, that it is not required to submit its policies to the league or any of its agencies.
He characterized article ten. with the guaranty to preserve against external aggression the integrity of all league members, as a trouble brevier and not a peace maker.

CHICAGO, July 27 Two men lost their lives and more than fifty were wounded in race rioting this evening on the Lake Michigan bathing beach near the heart of the colored section of Chicago. Scores et arrests were made by police who restored order after battling more than two hours.
The trouble started at a beach used by both whites and negroes.
A negro struck a white man with a rock. knocking him into the water. When he sank and did not come up white men pursued the negro. In a few minutes rioting became general up and down the beach for more than a mite.
Patrolman Kills Negro.
One negro was shot to death b> a patrolman. Fire arms began to pop and crowds of screaming men and women rushed from the beach toward the city.
Many were attacked as they fled. As fast as police would rush to stop a battle between negroes and whites at one part of the beach, fighting would break ou» at another point. The police were unable to give complete figures covering the casualties. It was estimated titty had been wounded.
More than five thousand whites and negroes were at the beach when the trouble started and the greater part of the number were involved before order was restored.
White Girl Wounded.
Among the wounded was a white girl, who wore a bathing suit. She started to run when the trouble started but was wounded by a shot as she fled. Two white men in bathing suits Were also wounded and taken to hospitals. A number ot wounded negroes were carried away by their friends and some were re ported dying in their homes.
After the beach had been cleared the bathers moved toward the thickly settled tenement district where both whites and negroes live and where there have been frequent race clashes. Extra details of police were thrown out to prevent threatened trouble in the district.
While the fighting was promiscuous on south State street in the new district which extends about five miles along the thoroughfare, another riot occurred at the Twenty-ninth street beach. Two negroes were reported to have been drowned after being struck by missies White men were frequently attacked on State street, the police said.

Hon Marvin Brown, *
Ada Evening News,
My Dear Mr. Brown:
Except by word of mouth I have never given expression to my appreciation of the splendid paper you are giving us. However, it has been my good pleasure to speak in Chapel to the 950 students and teachers of the Normal and commend the serviceable work you are doing. At this time I want to speak in print and tell you that your paper is doing a great work in general for Ada and Pontotoc County and the southeastern part of Oklahoma.
But especially do I appreciate the continued, hearty support the paper is giving the Normal School and particularly the very satisfactory way in which you have “covered” the Normal activities this summer. In many respects this has been the greatest term in the history of the school and the Ada Evening News has played no small part in
making it so. “I thank you.”
Most sincerely, yours,
J. M. GORDON, President East Central State Normal.
DR. J. M. GORDON
AMERICAN RANCHMAN FAYS
MEXICAN BANDITS RANSOM
By the A*woei*ted Pre**
WASHINGTON, July 28.—Acting on the advice of the Mexican government, John West Thompson, American ranchman living near Mexico City, has paid fifteen thousand pesos demanded by bandits for his fourteen year old sbn’s return. the state department was advised today. Mexican authorities said they feared that the bandits would murder the boy.
Ada took the game ft cm Atoka yesteida> afternoon at the local grounds without the least difficulty. The local men played the best ball seen here this season, and only one error was made by the home team. This was in the 9th inning and the game was ended without this error costing anything
A great feature of the game was the fielding of the Ada men, more especially Baul Young. Time after time he stopped fast balls coming toward third base and ended the runners at first. Another feature of the game was the batting of the locals. Ada got 9 hits and Jesse only gave up 4 hits.
Th* batteries for Ada were: Jesse and McDaniel; for Atoka. Perkins, Blankenship and Moore. Perkins relieved Blankenship in the 6th inning. Coleman was umpire.
The manager of the Atoka team stated-las! night that they had found no pitcher this summer that they could hit so little as they could Jesse. He gave it as his opinion that Ada now has the strongest amateur team in Oklahoma. The box score of the game not having been turned in at the hour of going to press it cannot be run before tomorrow.

BIG CHILDREN’S CHORUS FOR TOMORROW NIGHT
The feature of the tabernacle service tomorrow night will be the big children’s chorus to be staged by Mr. Ramsay, of the Ham-Ramsay Co.
Saturday night Mr. Ramsay predicted that there will be ten thousand people at the tabernacle to witness the magnificent spectacle.
Ramsay says. "This will be the biggest thing ever staged in this part of the country. In fact this is the biggest thing that was ever staged, and I am the only man that can do it." (Applause.)
An immense cross, elaborately lighted with blood red lights, has been reared in the center of the cho:r platform which together with other electrical effects will make the scene Tuesday sight one of the most spectacular ever seen in a religious service in this part of the country.
It is expected that the attendance at this service will very nearly come up to Mf. Ramsay’s expectations.
