Pa., March --Student Pilot William Dun- training plane struck a pow- er line, dived onto a highway and bounced to a stop atop a wall where it teetered only inches from a drop over a cliff.

A committee of the Ada Rodeo has awarded n contract to the Ada Iron and Metal company for the construction of 445 feet of bleacher seats at the fairground. Karl K. McKendri.-e. secretary of the annual event, said Monday morning. The seats will have an all-steel constructed frame and will tow- er If! rows of seats high. Some 4..180 people can be seated com- fortably in the new bleachers that will increase the seating capacity of the stands to 11.800. Other work has been outlined and will probably he started in the near future on the rearrange- ment of seats. A race track will also be constructed. Real Quarter Hnrse Show The Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association is putting more into he show here than has ever been put in a show of its kind in Ok- lahoma. More than 500 horser are expected to be shown. Quarter Horse breeders from almost every state in the Union are expected to have some of their finest stock on exhibition during the Ada Hodeo with which will be connected the Oklahoma Quarter Horse show. The dates for the rodeo have been set for Aug. 14-1B with five performances. Steer Roping Tops There will be prize money m each event plus entry fees ex- cept in the steer rcping division, where the ant is plus en- try fees. The total purse will be well over making the Ada Rodeo one of the largest events of _its kind in the Southwest. The rodeo last year was second only to Cheyenne in the out- door division and was not far down the ladder when indoor events are considered. A committee will leave Ada this week for Ft. Worth where prize money list will be sub- mitted to tho cowboys for ap- proval. Since- the cowboys have a union, the list must be checked by various officials. The ft. Worth Rodeo starts Friday and the committee will be on hand for the opening performance. Most of the rodeo stars who usually apear at the Ada Rodeo perform at Ft. Worth at that bii- event. New acts and features will be presented rodeo fans this year. One of the performance that will probably attract more attention than any other will be quarter horse races. ---------------K-------------- FIVE CENTS THE COPY Moving Day for Bikini Chieftain fllSht. from AilinR.iplap to Kwala- the Marshall Islands.

Chinese Claiming Russia Moving In Assert Troops Pouring Into Manchuria Rapidly By SPENCER MOOSA CHUNGKING, March forces who requested anonymity asserted today that Russian troops are continuing to pour into Manchuria in an in- creasing flow. These sources declared that Soviet occupation forces in the big territory to the north num- bered six months ago, and now were almost double that figure. A delayed dispatch from As- sociated Press Correspondent Richard Gushing yesterday de- scribed the port of Dairen as an armed Russian camp. Non Rus- sians there told him Japanese prisoners were forced to dis- mantle Manchurian industries for the Russians. Cushing reported that he and two other American correspond- ents were given the bum's rush" out of Dairen after making their way there from Mukden, Man- churian industrial metropolis. They received a cool reception, possibly because "we must have seen all of the Red army maneu- vers being staged along at least 30 miles of railroad." Cushing, Dick Wilkins of the army newspaper Stars and Stripes and AP Photographer Julian Wilson were the first American correspondents to visit Dairen. Their 25-hour visit end- ed abruptly and under virtual arrest. Cushing said they were given no opportunity to see the city of aoo.OOt) which, under the Chi- nese-Russian treaty, is supposed to he jointly operated by those two nations. Upon returning to Mukden teb. 211, the newsmen were told by Maj. Gen. Andrei Kovtoun- Stankevitch that Japanese pris- oners of war were sent to Siberia after being disarmed. Where they were sent, or for what pur- pose, the Russian commandant professed ignorance. Mrs. McDowell Dies ST1LLWATER. Okla..

March 4, An initial test of senate senti- ment toward exteir.Hng the draft law beyond May If, is due to- morrow. The military committee meets then to nass on a bill to transfer veterans' job rights functions from selective service to the United States employment ser- vice. The measure could have a powerful influence on draft ex- Ic-nsion legislation because its 'niictment would remove any ar- gument that selective service must be continued if only to safe- guard the rights of returned ser- vicemen to their pre-war jobs.

March 4, Boosts in c Ming prices on grains today softened some congression- al criticism of OPA but still left in doubt the agency's chances of getting n requested de- ficiency appronriation. OPA has been under particular fire from farm state legislators critical of former grain ceilings and concerning over a possible price ceiling on raw cotton. "I.onj; Overdue" Chairman Thomas (13-Okln.) of Ihe senate agriculture committee told reporters he was glad to see OPA "finally paying some atten- tion to directives from congress conecrnin" farm prices He call- ed the grain increases "long over- due-." course in the next ten definite days. Across the capitol, meanwhile, it appeared that a senate vote in the house military committee might go a long way toward de- ciding the fate of universal mili- tary trainini; legislation. Both and opponents claimed a majority of one vote on the- basis of private surveys among the 27 committee mem- bers. While Rep. Joseph W. Martin, Jr., house republican leader, de- clined to predict the fate of his proposal to sidetrack training leg- islation in favor of a drive for an intiriiational ban against it, the committee may have a showdown this week after further hearings on the Martin resolution. limit on tuition, Mileage lor Negroes OKLAHOMA CITY, March 4. students in schools of denistry and embalming out- side of Oklahoma cannot receive state aid for tuition and mileage. Attorney General Mac Q. Wil- liamson ruled today. Williamson said state laws provide that, in order for negro .students to receive tuition on mileage for out-of-state studies, they must take courses similar to those taught in white schools in Oklahoma. Hecause denistry and embalm- ing are not taught in state schools, tuition and mileage can- not be legally paid, he ruled. The opinion was asked by A. L. Crable. state superintendent of public instruction. Greater returns lor amount in- News Classified Ads.

March 4, The democratic party sluiced its congressional prestige today on a desperate bid to salvage the ad- ministration's- imperiled housing program. Simultaneously. Chester How- ies, who marshaled his entire economic high command for a blistering week end blast at price control setbacks on Capitol Hill ran into a republican demand that he resign as stabilization boss. Robert Hannegan, democratic national chairman, assumed per- sonal leadership of the olcventh- lour campaign to save President Truman's homes for veterans nrogram by wiring each of the 230 democrats in the house: Support "Imperative" "Your action today may ad- ance or delay the solutio'n to he nation's housing problem. Your presence and support of the administration's veterans housing program is imperative. "Solid partisan republican op- position to essential parts of this program. especially premium (subsidy) payments, threatens to torpedo the measure. The democratic party will be held re- sponsible by the country for failure to solve the housing crisis, not the republicans. We cannot let this happen. Am counting on you to go all out for administra- tion housing program Monday afternoon." The present house lineup in- cludes tile 239 democrats, 191 re- L. D.

The corporption turned thumbs down on a union proposal to leave to an arbitrator the settle- ment of the longest and costliest strike in automotive history. Instead, the corporation sug- gested that the UAW-CIO let its idle members vote in se- cret on whether they wish to ac- cept an cent hourly wage increase and return to work. The union is demanding 19 cents as recommended by presi- dential fact finding board. Prior to the turndown of the arbitration plan, the union had warned that rejection bv GM would force the UAW-CIO "to ntensify strike action and to car- ry on until the strike Is won." Special Federal Mediator James F. Dewey, who has strug- gled vainly for several weeks to resolve the dispute, called both sides to another negotiating ses- sion today. In the face of the seemingly hopeless deadlock, Dewey said he would ".see where we KO from here, and try to work something out." The UAW-CIO had said Satur- day that it was calling to send its members back into the nearly 100 struck GM plants under the corporation's 18 cent wage increase offer if GM would sub- mit that issue nnd others in the dispute to an arbitrator. In a lengthy reply to this pro- posal, the corporation said it would not arbitrate the wage is- sue, which it called the "only one."

The text of the note also was reported dispatched to the state "The union's demands of 18Vi cents an hour, which have not been met up until now. and the company's offer of approximately 15 cents, leave us with but ono alternative and that is to com- plete our arrangements for a Moran said. 6 A.

Henry Mayer, councel for sev- eral Telephone Workers unions, said long distant depart- ment employes would leave their jobs in every state except six in the western part of the na- tion. They will be joined, he jaid. by more than 150.000 local call op- erators, maintenance, manufac- turing and other workers in vir- tually every section except New England.

Up To Washington Only if we are summoned. I do not see that purpose is to be gained unless the company has some better offer." He declined to comment on whether the un- ion would accept anpointmcnt of a fact-finding board in the nego- tiations. U. S. Conciliator Peter J. Man- no said the neotiations were "sad- ly deadlocked." He said ho would report the situation to his superiors in Washington nnd that "the next move is up to them." Dring issued a statement say- ing the wage increase offered by the company, plus boosts already granted long lines workers in, New York City, would mean "an addition of a year to the long lines payroll."

Roberts was asked by his gov- ernment to "make inquiries" of [he Soviet government concern- ing the Russian refusal to with- Iraw troops from northwestern Iran. The spokesman said there had >een exchanges between the United States and British govern- nents over the week end on the situation. He added that Great Britain would continue to keep he United States state depart- ment "fully informed" on all developments. Sources at the foreign office in- dicated they took a serious view if the situation, particularly be- atise tlie Soviet government did not inform London of its action. .OOK OUT KonTsio COUNTERFEIT NOTES NOW OKLAHOMA CITY, March 4. E. Osborn, agent in barge of the U. S. secret serv- ce here, warned Oklahomans to- ay to be on the lookout for ounterfeit notes drawn on lie federal reserve bank of Cleveland, O.
