Grady Cornily Group Peeved Coll on Governor, Commission, Demond Long-Promised Work on Highway 19 OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan., 25, J i~ An embat tled Grady county delegation, numbering about 200, called on Gov. Robert S. Kerr and the state highway commission today to ask for hard-surfacing of state highway 19, work they declared has been promised Since the Murray administration. The delegation grew so rapidly that the meeting was first transferred from the capitol’s blue room to the criminal court of appeals chamber, then finally to the big house of representatives chamber. Bert Barefoot, Chickasha, judge of the criminal court of appeals, declared highway 19 from Chickasha to Lindsay is in such bad condition that it is impassable in wet weather and almost unusable in dry weather. Mail often does not reach small town on the route, school buses and commercial buses frequently are unable to run, and farm produce sometimes spoils because of delayed transportation. Barefoot asserted. The road is the only thoroughfare to serve a large farming and oil producing area, since a railroad which served th** area has been discontinued, he pointed out. Fred Brookshire, Chickasha, said in response to a question by Kerr that the road work had been promised by highway commissions in the Murray and Phillips administrations but was never carried out. He added that present highway Commissioner Ben T. Childers M nd Highway Engineer H. E. Bailey, had promised that it would do “among the first roads built after the war,” but the work was omitted from both the 1946 and 1947 road programs recently announced by the commission. The delegation included representatives from Chickasha, Bradley, Alex, Rush Springs and 'bittie. steadfastly maintained that the girl shot herself accidentally with a pistol he said she took from the glove compartment of his automobile. Both Reputations Good County Attorney Houston B. Teehee said both Lowery and Miss Butler had “splendid” reputations in the community. Lowery, who has a wife and three children, was transferred here last March from Chickasha, Okla. He was free today under $3,000 bond following his plea of innocent at an appearance before Peace Justice R. W. Walker. The county attorney said he found five bullet holes in Lowery’s automobile, one through each side, two through the top. Miss Butler was shot once through the chest. Shot Through Chest Dr John C. Hupp, of the Indian hospital here, said that the bullet which killed Miss Butler entered her chest from the left side and ranged through it to the right. County Attorney Teehee said investigation showed the girl was righthanded. Lowery and Miss Butler had been to Sallisaw on agency business and were returning here by way of Stilwell. Miss Butler. 27, was a graduate of Haskell Institute at Lawrence, Kas. t and was described by fellow workers as being a capable clerk and having “unusual common sense.” She weighed about 95 pounds and was about five feet and two inches tall.

Keeping in mind that the Old Clothes drive for aid to destitute peoples overseas ends Jan. 31, Ada is making a citywide collection Saturday morning. Many have taken clothing to the collection centers at schools here but others have lacked a way to get their contributions to the schools. The people of Ada are asked to have on curbs or front porches, where the bundles can be easily seen, their donations ready by 9 a.m. Saturday morning. Boy Scouts will do the collecting, directed by Rusty Harris and Bill Lee. Harris and Lee, in turn, are asking that all autos and trucks that can be made available be at Convention hall by 9 o’clock so that the collection over the inventor of city can be made speedily and , e    efficiently.

Jan. 25. i^—A statewide program to sel Oklahomans on Oklahoma is due to be launched by editors during a meeting of the Oklahoma Press Association today. The program will be organized, sponsored and paid for by the newspapers of the state. Paul F. Miller, publisher of the Broken Arrow Ledger, will follow Gov. Robert S. Kerr on the program during the afternoon announcing the promotion idea. It will consist of news stories, complete with pictures, syndicated through the press association office in Oklahoma City to all Oklahoma newspapers. The stories will deal* with industrial developments, scenes of public in terest, and other little known facts concerning the state. To Stand On Own Feet ‘We expect the program to stand upon its own feet as a news service and the newspapers through the press association will pay all expenses,” said Miller. „ The program will be known as Oklahoma Unlimited,” and will tell other towns how some Oklahoma town has developed, or landed, an industry with the idea that almost any town can repeat the performance with variations. The program was the big business of the meeting which started today with an estimated 300 in attendance. First speaker was Harrington Wimberly, Altus, a member of the federal power commission. He told the editors that if he had any special qualification for his job it was the attitude of the average Oklahoma newspaperman of gaining information about national and world affairs and I hope well never grow provincial down here.” Can Help With GI*s Walter Johnson, with the U. S. veterans employment service, explained the GI on the job training program and answered a number of questions. He urged editors to support the program in every Way possible and sell it to their readers, and use it themselves to put veterans back to work. Asked a question from the hoot as to whether veterans could obtain surplus property he said that in no case had he heard of a satisfactory deal being made and that in his opinion a GI would do better to depend upon private sources for necessary equipment. George Knox, Jr., of the Knox advertising agency, warned the newspaper publishers that they will lose business in the competitive period ahead unless they do a better job of printing and of servicing accounts. Tom Tanner, Cattanooga, Tenn., discussed the labor situation for the publishers. Members of the press association were guests at the Friday forum luncheon of the chamber of commerce and their afternoon program was devoted to a discussion of the Oklahoma Unlimited program. * Garb Is New—But Smile's the Some More Against Tojo, el al Russia, France, Netherlands Join Tribunal to Try Jap War Crimes Suspects Council To Talk Disputes UNO Group to Discuss Iron, Greece, Indonesia Dospito Russian Request CIO Board Votes No On Going on Jobs Means Largos Port of Moot Packers Will Stay Away After Government Tokes Over Struck Plants Tomorrow CHICAGO, Jan. 25.—(AP)—Lewis J.
