You Are to Be Congratulated
Mr. Marvin Brown,
Editor Daily and Weekly News.
I doubt very seriously if any other agency in a city means so much to the growth of that city as its newspaper. It can be made a medium to draw the people closer together in community sympathy and co-operation, and as a mouthpiece for the people in remedying public ills and in promoting everything that makes for a clean town physically and morally and its upbuilding commercially.
I sincerely believe that no paper anywhere in any city twice the size of Ada is doing this in such a fine way as is the Ada News. You are to be congratulated on the splendid paper you are giving us and should have the united support of all the people.
Very cordially yours,
CLYDE CALHOUN MORRIS,
Pastor First Baptist Church.

WHY HOI A BAND,
SAYS MILTON GARNER
Milton Garner urges that representatives from the Ada Chamber of Commerce bo present tomorrow night when the band meets to organize and practice. Mr. Garner states there are as many as twenty-four band men in Ada who should be in the band, but because of the little interest in the city generally and the lack of support by the Chamber of Commerce and city authorities they take no stock In it. He feels that Ada should support the band like other cities do as a band is one of the best advertisements a town can have.
The local bandmen have been asked to play at the big celebration at Allen on July 4th which they will likely do.

We are Proud of The Daily
Mr. Marvin Brown,
Editor Ada Daily and Weekly News.
We are proud of Ada. We are proud of the Daily News. The city is growing like a healthy, husky youngster. The News has taken a jump and gone ahead like a good leader.
Let us strive to not only keep up with it, but to speed up and give it a push. No matter how good a paper is, it always needs an increasing patronage. We trust that your business will so increase that you can continue to give us the character of paper you are putting out at the present time. Co-operation and united effort is all that is needed now to put Ada in the metropolitan class. The News, we believe, is willing, and so are we.
