Grant Irwin Bugs Building For His Big Buick Garage
Grant Irwin, popular garage man and Buick agent, located at 12til and Townsend, has just recently purchased the concrete building of Fred Brydia, located on 12 th and directly back of Mr, Irwin’s main garage building.
The building on 12th, just purchased, will be converted into a repair and machine shop for the garage, and as a consequence Mr. Irwin will have more space for offices, stock rooms, etc., in the main building.
Mr. Irwin has still more ideas of development in mind to accomodate his ever increasing business, but he would not confide them to the News reporter at this time, saying that it would be better news if we would wait until it actually transpired.
Grant Irwin is probably one of the best known garage men In this part of the state, and if he were doing the talking himself he would no doubt tell you that the Buick car is without a peer in the whole wide world.
At any rate the News is glad to note the expansion of the business for the very good reason that it indicates that Ada is rapidly growing better as a business city.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.—In a last effort to prevent the dissolution of the National Industrial Conference, Chairman Lane today read to the delegates the letter dictated by President Wilson yesterday from his sick bed and urging the imperative necessity for some action by the conference to Insure industrial peace during the reconstruction period.
The President said the public expected the conference to stay together until the way was found to the establishment of a surer co-operation between all the alaments engaged in industry or until it was revealed that the ’’men who work and th© men who manage American industry are so set upon divergent paths that all efforts at co-operation are doomed to failure.”
“If the nation's industrial leaders and workers are to be without faith in each other, constantly struggling for advantage over each other and doing nothing but what they ar© compelled”, the President said, “the situation thus created would, be a national disaster.”
Declaring that his mind turned away from such a possibility the President said the conference should stand together for the development of a full program by which a measurable co-operation might be secured and not break because full agreement could not be had on each proposition or method suggested.
It is my understanding”, the
