IV NEWARK, V J. NEWARK, N\ J.-—-There are people still willing to pick prizes from the crop of gold bricks, it has been discovered, for three residents of this city were recently fleeced by slick strangers dealing in “gold.” Samuel Pelz met two engaging men who whispered to him that a box one of them carried was filled with raw gold. Pelz lifted the box and found it delizhtsully heavy. He was asked to take care of it for his new-found friends and agreed to do so. But they said they must have security, so Pelz drew a thousand real dollars from his bank and the strangers kindly left the box with him. It contained about 90 cents worth of brass fittings, as Pelz discovered much pleased with the report in which Mr. Cooper declares that every one with whom he talks commends the oiganization and expresses a willingness to help in the campaign. Nominal Quotas were gixeti to Chickasha. Ardmore. Sapulpa, Enid, and McAlester, but in each case, through civic organizations in the city, higher quotas have been asked in order that .Salvation Army corps might be located there, according i to Lieutenant Colonel George Wood. The quotas have been raised as requested, in each case more than I 125.000. and Salx*ation Army corps! will be established in each city Just I as rapidly as workers are avail- I able,” be Hays.

But ifs not a man we are talking about now—ifs several thousand men—and women and children, too. Ifs the condition,Ada finds herself in, in this year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen! Most everybody is familiar with the fact that all that part ot the city lying east of the Katy tracks is suffering this summer, and has suffered for the past two or three summers, from a lack of sufficient water supply. The majority of us know, without further investigation, that the present water equipment, mains and storm sewers, installed years ago, is not only in a delapidated condition, liable to tail us at any time, but that it is wholly inadequate tor a city of this size and a city with growing p ros p ects. I he News has made it plain, too, on several different occasions, that there are several miles of 'paving already petitioned for in the city which cannot be built until the water mains on the streets where the paving is asked for are replaced with mains of sufficient size and lowered to the proper depth. In tact the city has reached a point where it must absolutely come to a standstill unless something is done to relieve the water shortage and assure an adequate supply to take care of a city twice or three times as large as Ada is at the present time. Factories are not going to locate here unless they can be assured that the people are public spirited enough to spend all the money necessary to build a water system that will take care of their needs. A committee of reputable citizens have been working in conjunction with the city commissioners in an extort to solve the water problem. They secured competent engineers and designed a plan for a water system that will solve the difficulty and take care of a city of thirty or forty thousand people—and that is exactly what we should have to be at all safe. An election has been called for the 18th of this month to vote on the question of issuing bonds to build this system. Then, you say, what is the argument? There is no argument, only this:    We haven't heard a word about the bond issue since the election was called! SOMEBODY OUGHT TO BE BOOSTING FOR THE BONDS! It may be that everybody is for the bonds, but, even so, if there is nothing said about it nobody will think to vote on the 18th. This is to remind you that there is an election on the 18th, and the election is to vote bonds for the purpose of building a water system that will make it possible for Ada to continue to grow and make a city of which we will all be proud.

Mr. Huber has lived By th# Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 8. ports of the death of three mem hers of the crew of As previously announced, the public schools of Ada will begin the fall term’s work Monday, September 15. All buildings have been thoroughly renovated, additional furniture provided and every preparation made that can be made under existing circumstances. In the face of all our preparatios, however, the situation at tile opening of school is far fr6m satisfactory. We had planned for the new building to relieve our congested condition but it seems now ihe nexv building will not be ready for some time. This fact is going to force a crowded condition even worse than existed last year. The scholastic enrollment in !his district iii February was 2563. This number has very probably grown now to 2 700. Of this number there will be about three hundred high school pupils, leaving at least 2000 pupils to be taken care of in the grades. The three ward buildings and the rooms available at the high school building will not be adequate to handle this number. As conditions jiorce it, therefore, we shall be forced to adopt half day sessions in such j grades and wards as require it. At the high school building, which will continue to take care of the South ward until the new' building is com- ‘ pleted, the seventh and the eighth grade will be taken care of in connection w'ith the high school. The B first and the A first will each have a half day, the B division coming in the morning and the A division in the afternoon. The same plan will be followed with the Second and the Third grade, the Sec-ind grade coming in the morning and the Third grade in the afternoon. The remaining grades, the Fourth, the Fifth and the Sixth, will have full day sessions unless the attendance becomes so large that it will be impossible to divide these grades. I wish to announce now’ that patrons living in the. South Ward who may wish to transfer their children to other wards in order to ge a full day’s wrork may do so if t* grades to which they wish to tran I fer are not crow ded. Applications for such transfers must be made to the superintendent and such transfers when made will be valid only until adequate room is provided in the south ward or the new' ward. In regard to the book situation, it seems very probable now that the new' adoptions will not be available when school opens. If permitted by the state department of I education, we shall endeavor to sup-I piement the new adoptions available with old, books. I am requesting, therefore, that all children look up .their old books and have them in readiness when the call is'made for ; them. The books can be sold to other children at half price. When the new' books are to be had. tile old book can be exchanged for a new one, the first cost of the old book being allowed on the new one. In this way we may be able to handle toe situation temporarily and no one lose any money in the transaction. I rincipals and teachers at each j building will supervise the matter Be- and assist the children in getting the United I jilt? nS,ht l">ok and in adjusting the . rh.
