He had been in ill health smce last December Would Revoke Beer License County Attorney Asks Revocation of License Of Ray Clark, for North Eola An application for revocation of beer license granted to Roy Clark for operation of the North Pole, located about a mile north of the city limits, was filed Monday morning by County Attorney Vol Crawford. The information filed stated that since February 19, 1946, the North Pole has been operating as a beer tavern wherein they sell 3.2 per cent beer. The county attorney has been informed and alleges that the place of business is not being operated by Roy Clark, but that divers other persons have been operating it. Causes Highway Hazard It was stated in the application for revocation that the place is geing operated and conducted in such a manner as to render the State Highway leading from the city limits of Ada, north to Konawa a traffic hazard to the traveling public. According to the records, various persons have been arrested on the premises owned and operated by Clark and those intoxicated persons have either pleaded guilty or been convicted in justice of the peace court in Ada for being in a drunken condition. Intoxicated Persons Some persons have been seen coming out of the North Pole and on the premises in an intoxicated condition and carrying beer on their persons at the time they were arrested, continues the application. It was written into the application that the North Pole is a place where people congregate and loiter around in an intoxicated condition..

Protest On Manchuria Also Asks Quick Reply Ta Note About Plans For Withdrawal from Iron By SPENCER MOOSA CHUNGKING, March ll. (J Chinese nationalist and communist reinforcements today were reported moving to Mukden where, the central news agency said, the rival forces were battling after sudden withdrawal of Soviet troops. Chinese press dispatches said that the communists, heavily outnumbering nationalist troops in the city of 2.000.000—Manchuria’s largest—had occupied the power plant and northen district Other reports said the central government had proclaimed martial law in the skeleton city, whose once-great industrial plants had been picked clean by the Russians. Both Moving In Forces The press reports declared that elements of fo u r nationalist armies were marching to Mukden and that communist reinforcements were moving in from the north. Government elements were identified as from the 13th, 52nd, 1st and 6th armies. The Central Daily News said the nationalist 14th division entered Mukden Saturday. The suddenness of the Soviet withdrawal was blamed for t h e serious” street-fighting in Muk-f n I Dispatches said the nationalists did not have sufficient ‘JJP* to P°P e with the situation. They said that for the past few days Soviet authorities in Man-chuna. from Marshal Rodion Y. Vfalinovsky, Soviet commander, to junior officers, had been inaccessible to nationalist officials. Bed Withdrawal Not General The Central News agency did not interpret the withdrawal from Mukden as a general Russian evacuation of Manchuria. The agency declared that six trains from Mukden had unload-ed troops, tanks, artillery and automobiles at Changchun. Man-chuna capital. Yet another report said Chang-chun was full of rumors that Soviet forces intended to quit tho city. No known development* supported this. In Chungking., the Manchurian situation was discussed at a meeting presided over by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek. It also figured largely in talks among General George C. Marshall President Truman’s envoy in Lhina, and various Chinese lead-ers, including the No. 2 commie. ’ Chou En-Lai AAN Sends Heavy livestock Entries Taking 75 Hood af Aal. male ta Ft.
