There is not a town in the whole country that has a more promising future than Ada. The period of childhood has been past and small things no longer look large to its citizenship The town has passed through the adolescent period that, sum* of mind when it does not know what it wanted ami at the
beginning of the most promising epoch it stands, fully developed, bursting with energy and ability,
prepared to take advantage of the best that offers.
Nor will it consent anymore to
have ail) thing but the best. A few years ago, Ada chose the best occa-^ atonally in order to be in the fashion rather than to satisfy a real desire for the best. hut that state of mind has passed and tilt* best is
demanded because the best is really wanted. Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Muskogee, and other cities of th^ state, may have more of the best. hilt the quality of the best that Ada gets is in no wise inferior to th** quality of the best that these other cities get.
A few weeks ago Shawnee had the pleasure of hearing Lucy (Lites, America's premier coloratura soprano. in concert anil was delighted almost beyond expression. Word direct from there proclaims her all that her press notices claim for her. Reports from her most extravagantly successful concert tour keep coming in and when she appeared in Concert in Ada the people are sure to have the very best that Ada has ever had in the musical line and equal to the hest that cain be had .my where.
This too, is saying a great deal in view of the fact that such musicians as Mere Alcock. Arthur Middleton. and I’aulo Grippe have appeared here. It it* distinctly th** purpose of the management of th** high school to continue its policy of affording the citizenship of the town Witt* such opportunities as these.
Miss Gates will appear on Friday nig; lit. April 4 th. at th** Normal auditorium. Watch for her program.

The question Of a barrier which ; the peace conference intends to -erect against the spread of bolshov-! ism in the tonner central empires comes snarply to the front as a result of th** Hungarian situation } where the bolsheviki have seized t power aud declared a state of war to exist between Hungary aud the entente powers. It was reported that an important military derision will la* taken at today’s session of th** supreme council and Premier 1 riemeiioeau and Foreign Minister 1 Piehon conferred Sunday oil action j hulking to military measures, according to Paris newspapers. Two 'French divisions are at Budapest and Serbian and Ruma Qian troops are available for service iii Hungary should they be needed
The extremist element iii Hungary is said to be rn absolute trot and in a wireless communion-; lion with Premier Lenin© of bolshevik Russia. It is understood in Paris, according to one report, that, three Polish divisions will he seut at once to Danzig oil the Baltic coast. Extremists are active in Vi-j en na, hut the government still controls there. Reports that bolshevik troops are iii Galic|a ready to advance into Hungary, still lack confirmation.
Premier Declare* for Bolshevik!.
FARIS. Match LM. Hungary is in the throes ut a revolution in favor of the bolshevik! and Count Karolyi. premier of Hungary, has formed an armed alliance with Russian reds to resist Cfi* entente. A strong Russian army is reported marching on Bud-apest and an allied army has also been ordered to the center of the disturbance.

NEW III I EDING TO START THIS SI MMI ll. El TI KE OF THE SCHOOL ROSY.
Governor J. B. A. Robertson signed the bill appropriating $100,000 to construct and equip another building at the Fast Central Normal late Saturday evening, according to in-; formation received here today from Representative W. H. Ebey. This settles the matter and work on the new building will begin some time this summer. _
President J. M. Gordon is of the con-' opinion that work will begin not later than June or July. He is especially anxious for ground to be broken during the summeV term of the normal, in ordeV that fitting services may be held.
The faculty and students of (he East Central normal, as well as the ; hundreds of alumni, are optimistic over the outlook for the future of the school, now that the legislature has appropriated the money for another building. For three or four years the present facilities have not been adt-*1 uatt» to take care of the large enroll- j mein as well as the students deserving to be taken care of .according to the way the authorities looked at the matter.
Th* enrollment average about five hundred students during th** fall, winter and spring terms. In the summer the enrollment goes as high as 900 and 1,000. To properly train teachers of this number in one main building and one small gymnasium has been a task that taxed the resources and ingenuity of the ountry to rise and form an J president and faculty.
