llv the Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June IO. A resolution was introduced in the United States Senate tqday, by Senator Knox, of the Foreign Relations Committee, which would have the senate declare that it could dot concur in the League of Nations provision of the peace treaty as it is now drawn.
The resolution which is expected to bring to a more definite stage the fight being made against the league covenant in many quarters, asked thai the league covenant be separated from the regular peace treaty before being submitted to the United States Senate for ratification. #
At the request of Senator Knox, who introduced the resolution, and who announced that he would discuss it in detail at a later date, asked that it be referred to the foreign relations committee.
The resolution is generally interpreted to be an official notice to the peace conference now assembled in France that ratification of the treaty in its present form is not acceptive to the senate.
What action the senate will take on the resolution, of course, is not known at this time, but it is considered that the resolution is the outgrowth of the general opposition to the league of nations plan as at present drawn which has manifested itself in the national body for some time.

ENTERTAIN VISITING FACULTY OF EAST CENTRAL NORMAL AT HARRIS HOTEL
LAST EVENING. *
i-a^t evening will be one long to be remembered by the Lions Club of Ada. Likewise, we venture, it will long be a vreen spot in the memory of the visiting faculty of the East Central State Normal and the invited teachers, ministers and other guests present.
The Lions Club of Ada, has only been organized a short time, but it has already distinguished itself rn a very substantial way.
Feeling the indebtedness of the city of Ada and her people to the East Central Normal and its faculty. the club planned a luncheon ; and program to be given in hon-1 or ct the Normal faculty at the I Harris Hotel last Saturday evening. but owing to unforeseen ob-Macles th*' meeting was postponed | until last evening at eight o’clock.!
The guests and club members all assembled promptly, some sixty in number, and from eight until eight-thirty a reception was held to the wives ami invited guests of club members in the parlors of the hotel.
At eight-thirty the dining room was thrown open and the festivities began. Music was furnished by Schreiber and Cruz, and music it was throughout.
A five course luncheon, such as only Mr McFarland of the New Harris Hotel can plan, was served j in the most elegant style, during the entire time of which the guests were regaled with some of the most elegant music ever heard in these parts.
Aa the last course of the luncheon v as rapidly vanishing. Robert Wlm-bish, that incomparable toastmaster—he of the suave manner and chesterfieldian mein—arose and unchained the lions who indulged in frivolity and laughter for several minutes. He apologized for the fact that I. M. King, who was billed for the welcome address, was indisposed. and proceeded to introduce a substitute in the person of L. A. Ellison, cashier of the Oklahoma State Bank. And a real substitute he was!
Those ho had presumed that Ellison’s chief entertaining proclivity consisted of a merry ha! ha! and a smile that won’t rub off saw* right off the bat that they were In for a great surprise*. He Is not only all that we have already said about him, but he is more—he is an ora-j tor! His address w'as one that could only be inspired by deep conviction of the responsibilities resting upon the American people in these trying and uncertain reconstruction days. The toastmaster was forced to admit that he had not discover*! a substitute, but that Ellison was the real thing.
, The response by Prof. L. W. Courtney, of Shawnee, was fitting and to the point, and expressed the sentiments of all the teachers, it is hoped, when he paid the city of Ada an excellent tribute and thanked the citizens and tee Lions Club for their genial hospitality.
“Th** New Doctor.” by J. E. Hickman, superintendent of city schools, scintillated throughout the confines | of the banquet hall like a strange | meteor in the starry vault. “Hickman is a star performer,” was the verdict of M. F. Manville, president of the club. “He was the surprise of the evening.” said toastmaster Rober1 Wimblsh.
J. M. Gordon, president of the East Central Normal, be it known, has just recently had conferred up-I on him the title of L. L. D., and it was a toast to the new title of Dr. Gordon to which Prof. Hickman I had been asked to respond. His bump of humor was swollen to
undue proportions and more times than one Dr. Gordon looked as though he was sorry he had ever had a degree. When he reached the serious vein, however, he was just as much at home, and when he had finished the listeners were convinced that they had enjoyed an intellectual treat.
Following Prof. Hickman, the I toastmaster then introduced the principal «ntertainer of the evening, J Dr. Arthur Lee Odell, president of Henr: Kendall College, of Tulsa.
The address of Dr. Odell is one thai will long he remembered in Ada. It is doubtful, in fact, if Ada ever had within her gates a more profound scholar, a deeper thinker) or a better speaker than Dr. Odell. | He ran the entire gamut of the English language in his appeal to the moral sensibilities of his audience. Basing his discourse upon the theory that no individual or organization can build permanently for the battles of life wi'hout a solid groundwork of Christian character, he seemed to sound every depth of religious philosophy and permeate every recess of scientific thought.
His subject. “Meat for the Iaons,” was not only meat for lions but it was meat for every human individual w’ho has the faculty of reasoning soberly and thinking deeply. It was indeed a masterpiece for which the club should acknowledge gratitude and everlasting obligations. •
Th* Lions Club of Ada is indeed entitled to much praise for the manner ii. which the entertainment w*as conducted. At the same time the club owes a debi of gratitude to those who assisted to make the affair a success. Among those we think of in particular are the Ada Music Co., for the loan free of an excellent piano; to Mr. McFarland, the genial manager of the New Harris Hotel; to those who consented so generously to work on the program; and to our distinguished guests, teachers, ministers and faculty of tho East Central State Normal.
May Ada have many more such happy events, as they are a tonic to the community, stimulating and elevating beyond estimation. May : he Lions Club of Ada live long and prosper!

PARIS, June IO. The Council of Four, composed of the president of the United States and the rulers of France, England and Italy, met in executive session this morning amid an atmosphere of considerable pessimism.
With the larger questions of peace making with Germany still unsolved, it is said that this, the greatest and most powerful peace committee ever assembled in the world’s history, seemed as much if not more at sea than ever.
It is understood that Premier Clemeiw'eau has not moved from his position against any modification of the peace terms. This “grand old
