•Miss Somebody Else,” which will be presented at the Normal auditorium this evening by the Senior Class is said to be an unusually entertaining play. It is a comedy in four acts, in which Constance Dar-cv. the brilliant young daughter of Harvey Darcy, a multi-millionaire mine owner and proprietor, proves that rich girls are not necessarily butterflies, nor snobs, but have a longing for the real friendship of real people who are not blinded by their wealth, and a chance to win a place for themselves in the world. To accomplish these, she decides to live incognito for a time. This gives rise to many amusing situations and also gives her an opportunity to prove her real worth.
The various characters in 1 play a reduced gentlewoman, scientist husband and debutai. daughter; the society leader of the town in which the scenes are laid, her debutante daughter and only son; an Irish maid who is an amusing character; a vivacious French maid; a modern chauffeur; a young crook; society matrons, girls and young men are each interesting types*
This evening spent in the Normal auditorium promises to be an event g of genuine enjoyment.

COUNCIL DECIDES TO RECOGNIZE ANTI-BOLfiHVIK (HH EHNMENTS IN RUSSIA.
RETAINING DISABLED SAILORS
J. ERWIN MUICH SINGS HERE FRIDAY EVENING
WASHINGTON. May 2 6.—Commercial uccupations, as bookkeeping, clerical work. stenography and telegraphy appeal to disabled men who have a good general education and who are willing to devote a few’ months to intensive courses of training. Positions may be secured in a reasonably short time after beginning study, while those who are more ambitious, with better educational background may become accountants, advertisers, secretaries, insurance salesmen, bankers or office managers by continuing their training in evening schools.
More than 1200 discharged soldiers are being trained in these courses in business schools and colleges. It is the policy of the Federal Board for Vocational Education to utilize existing schools rather than to organize new’ schools for the purpose which is their privilege under the Act. Many of these school^ have had experience in training handicapped men and are proving valuable aids in the work with wounded soldiers.

J. Erwin Mutch, baritone of The chon of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, will appear under tht auspices of the High School Musical Celebrities Club at the First Methodist church »n next Friday evening.
Backed by a specific guarantee by Mr. Roland R. Witte of Kansas City, who has proven his personal interest in the effort of the local high school to furnish the class of entertainment which they have furnished. Principal A. L. Fentem pledges the patrons that they will enjoy him and his concert as genuinely as any that has ever been presented in Ada. The following is an extract from Mr. Witte’s communication :
“Mr. Mutch gave his concert in Dallas a few weeks ago and they called him the American Tita Ruffo. < which is a wonderful compliment. He is a young fellow, just thirty. blit possesses a magnificent baritone j voice with a phenomenal range and maintains the baritone quality with a higher range than most tenors, which is most unusual. He is an i artist in every respect and a thor-! lough musician. If you wish to take j him, you may do so absolutely on , I my guarantee that if he does not . j give satisfaction you need not pay anything for him.’’
Again, in another communication Mr. Witte writes: “You are going
to strengthen jour good standing in Ada as an impressario in Mr. Mutch’s concert. This fellow is truly a magnificent artist and you may rest assured absolutely that he will carry his audience with him from the moment he steps out on the platform to his last number. This means that Ada will have treat on this occasion. Principal Fentem urges the assistance of all who wish to see the course succeed advertising the concert.
Captain Sam H. Hargis returned lait evening from Oklahoma City where he has been for the past few days, and reports that he has just been appointed as enforcement officer for the state highway commission. This is a department of the commission which requires four officers for the state and Captain Hargis was selected as one of the four.
The duties of the enforcement officers will be to look after convict labor on the state highways, see to the collection of automobile tax, etc., and will require more or lets travel. The position pays fifteen hundi ed' dollars a year and all traveling expenses and, all in all, is a very desirable position.
Captain Harigs is to be congratulated on securing this very important appointment, and the citizens of Ada can assure the governor and tho commission that they could not have made a better selection anywhere in this part of the state.

PARIS, May 26.—The Council of Four of the peace conference has decided conditionally to recognize the anti-Bolsheviki governments of Admiral Kolchak in Siberia and Gen eral Denekine in the Black Sea region, according to neuter s agency here.
The conditions of recognition are that regarding the future of Russia the government agrees to convoke and accept the verdict of a genuine constituent assembly, likewise that the League of nations covenant and consequences affecting the boundaries of the former empire are to be accepted. The constituent assembly is to determine the form of government of Russia.
The various anti-Bolshevik governments springing up in different parts of Russia have largely com-| bined under the leadership of Kolchak and Denekine, who with volunteer armies have defeated the enemy in many hard fought battles and have greatly reduced the extent i of territory held by Lenine and Trotsky. They have long sought recognition by the allies and their cause will be materially’ strengthened in case this is extended them, hence the importance of the reported action by’ the Big Four.

His wife aud three children from Allen, one brother and his wife from Oklahoma City, and another brother from Milburn, Okla., were present at the time of his death.
The remains were shipped this afternoon to Madill at which place interment will be made.
Even to the casual observer it is said indeed to see this man who had not yet reached the noontide of his life lay down his tools of labor and say, “It is finished.”
But still more heavy are those hearts who have been tendered by his companionship, for it is they who will miss him most for having known him longest and loved him best.
Saturday evening the marriage of Mr. K. Norman of Francis, and Miss Nell J. Robinson of Chickasha, was solemnized by C. V. Dunn, minister of the First Christian church of Ada. The wedding took place at the home of Mrs. T. E. Brents, 105 E. 14 th street. The ring ceremony was used. Only a few immediate friends were invited to be present.
Mrs. Norman is a young lady of unusual attainments. Through her own effoits she made her way through the Ada normal where she was a prime favorite and after that taught most successfully at Tishomingo, Chickasha and other places. She merits the best the world can offer.
Mr. Norman is a young man of excellent reputation and is engaged in the grocery business at Francis. He is indeed to be congratulated on his success in winning such an estimable lady as his life’s companion.
Mr. and Mrs. Norman will make their home in Francis. They have the best wishes of their many friends.
