Won Durant Show Lot Week, Gun to Tulia Now; Hereford Heaven Brad Grand Chomp, Homo of Reserve Chomp Steer Hereford Heaven breeders and breeders of Angus Angels in Hereford Heaven have another foot to stand on now since both groups had top steers in the Ninth Annual Southeastern Oklahoma Junior Livestock Show. Joe Louis,” an Angus steel that was named grand champion of the show, was bred and raised until sold, at the Stonybrook Ranch. The ranch is owned and operated by Carleton Corbin, who is president of the Oklahoma Angus Breeders Association. The owner of the black steer is Bobby Cooper, who lives on a 300 acre ranch west of Durant. The steer was the first ever fed out by Cooper. It was grand champion steer at Durant last week came to Ada and won grand champion honors and is now enroute to Tulsa to compete in the Magic Empire Livestock Show. Kenneth Pults, FFA member from Earlsboro, showed three animals at the Ada show. His two barrows did not place and his Hereford steer was down in fifth place, but he remains an outstanding farm youth. Last year, he was the winner of the Governor’s Trophy. The trophy is awarded to the most outstanding FFA member during the year. Pults said that the Ada show was even better than he had expected, in addition to being better than it had been during the three other years that he has exhibited here.

Bob Rennie, Pauls Valley FFA is the owner of the grand champion barrow at the Ada show this year. He exhibited a Chester White. It was the second time in the nine years of the Ada show that a Chester White barrow won grand champion honors. Rennie not only got congratulations from his fellow competitors, but received telegrams from the folks over at Pauls Valley. He explains that it takes a lot of feeding and care to raise a grand champion barrow, in addition to a lot of powder, razor blades and brushes of various descriptions to make an animal look like a champion at a show. Jack Snfith, manager of the Lazy D Ranch and one of the best cattle judges in this section u ? lted States, said that tne Ada show far outclassed any show that has been held in Ada at any previous occasion. His son George fitted two fine calves and one of them was reserve grand champion in the steer class.

They also agreed that tne type of animals was far above those of previous years Never in the history of the Ada Livestock Show has any boy fed out animals to win grand champion honors two years in a tow and with record standing as it does, County Agent C. H. Hail-ey, manager of the show here, predicts that no boy who showed I grand champion this year will have that distinction next year when the show is held. Kesselring Admits Shan of Blame Plea Made For Best in Dairy Slock, (are Notional Holstein Official Gives Basis for Best In Dairying Work Stay with purebred dairy cows and take the best of care of them from the start. That was the theme of a vigorous talk Monday night by Glen Householder, extension director for the Holstcin-Fricsian Association of the United States. The Kiwanis club of Ada played host Monday night to dairymen, farm youths with dairy projects, winners at the Southeastern Junior Livestock show which ended today, judges of the show other officials of the state 4-H and FFA organizations. C. H. Hailey, Pontotoc county agent and manager of the show', for the club presented the exhibitors of the three grand champion animals; these boys will receive gold engraved medals from the Kiwanis club later, the medals failing to arrive in time for the Monday night meeting. Dairy Project Here Growing Glen Boley, presiding, outlined the rapid growth of the county project by which dozens of registered dairy breed heifers have been placed with farm club youths, a program which provides for yearly expansion. Mr. Householder first laid a background for his emphasis on selection and feeding care. He outlined the battle for food, made critical by demands of war and postwar conditions, showing that beef and dairy cattle are the two great converters of “feed into food.” This calls, for improving the animal ‘machines* that do the work, and, in turn, for making it profitable for the owners to improve their own standards of living and constantly improve their production and marketing. National Average Poor Average of the 27,000,000 dairy cows in the U. S. is now 180 pounds of butterfat. 4,226 pounds of milk per year.

By DANIEL De LUCE NUERNBERG, Germany, March 12.—(IP)—Field Marshal Albert Kesselring told the international military tribunal today that he was at least partly responsible for bombing of Warsaw, Rotterdam and Coventry. The militarist, who opposed American troops in Italy and France, testified for Herman Goering, one of 22 Nazis on trial as war criminals. “The bombs on Coventry landed perfectly,** Kesselring said. Sometimes a whole area must be considered as a target.’* He said the British city was a technical and industrial center” and that German planners called it a “Little Essen. * m ver Y sorr y as a soldier for 22 years if the attack on Rotterdam was not *what it should have been,” he testified, explaining he had heard the attack was made during armistice negotiations. ‘But if this was the case— an< J I l ne Y er was able to find out ~it should be counted as an accident of war.” The marshal said he commanded the air attack on Warsaw. He described the Polish capital as a fortress and asserted that “everything possible was done to hit only military targets.” of milk in 365 days. or’ll5 pounds every tlay, or 13% gallons of milk daily, the national average is shown to be poor, indeed. American dairying is in its infancy, Householder said, continuing that constant studies show that many practices good in pioneer days must go by the board to produce more for each hour of labor, each pound of feed and each dollar of overhead invested (the same holds for beef cattle he explained). Don’t Keep Too Many Too many keep too many animals, resulting in the cattle being underfed and so unable to produce as they should. American habit of cutting corners has produced too many crosses of breeds, which enhance production only for the first generation, then fade. The speaker quoted figures showing that purebred animals produce more, but that registered dairy cattle last year paid $25 per head more than the highest type grade animals. So, Householder recommended that youths get purebred cattle to start with, then feed them fully and properly from the start to achieve capacity production, at maturity, of the cows. Yamashila Thought Cop Chief lo Die MANILA, March 12, CP)—Col. Akira Nagahama, one-time chief of Gen. Yamashita’s thought police in the Philippines, was sentenced today to death by hanging by a U. S. military commis sion which convicted him charges of atrocities com by his men. The commission said Japanese military police under Nagahama attempted to terrorize entire ponulotions by mass atrocities. Prosecutor for Nagahama’s trial was Capt. Arnold L.

MARTIN WASHINGTON, March 12, WPI —Former President Herbert Hoover said today supplies of cereal now available to avert starvation in war-torn countries are 8,000,000 to 9,000,000 tons short of minimum needs. However, he told a news conference. that he believed all but 1.000,000 or 2,000.000 tons of the deficit could be made up through reduced consumption in the United States and other western hemisphere countries. Hoover is honorary chairman of President Truman’s emergency committee which has appealed to the United States to cut its use of wheat by 140 per cent and of fats by 20 per cent. He said his committee and the agriculture department will seek to obtain 5,000,000 tons of cereals from Latin American countries— through a combination of redduc-ed consumption and increased export—and savings of 2,000,000 tons of wheat in this country by July I. Hoover said there is need for what he termed a “circuit of helpfulness” involving all western hemisphere countries. A South American countries need coal, oil and a other industrial products. he said, and a program of helpfulness would provide those countries with such things in return for cutting down on consumption of food. —*— - FENIMORE DEFERED UNTIL CURRENT SEMESTER ENDS WOODWARD, Okla., March 12. (ZP)—-Alvin Adams, chairman of Girl Injured And Three Arteried In Highway Affair One girl was taken to a local hospital, three young men arrested after a series of incidents late Saturday night in which two girls reportedly were run into by an automobile. An account as given by the two highway patrolmen who investigated, Haywood Bailey and Harvey Hawkins, was to the effect that three young men in one car chased another car in which were one young man and four girls. They are said to have forced the car off the highway and pinned it to a stop by locking bumpers, then tried to get the girls to join them in their car. Shot At Driver? The other driver had headed across a field toward a farm house to telephone officers and accounts to the officers said one of the three shot at him with a .22 but missed. He# called the patrolmen, who immediately started out on the case. In the meantime, the girls refused to get in the other car, and, the patrolmen’s summary says, the three men got in their car, drove a short way down the highway, turned and came back driving into two of the girls, then hurrying on into Ada. Patrolmen Make Arrests The patrolmen got the names of the three from the girls, and Bailey arrested them Sunday morning, placing them in the county jail.

UPI A CIO-United Auto Worker* official blasted today at OPA’* plans for new-car price increases, saying this means “not a bulge in the price line but an explosion.” “If OPA.” said Donald Montgomery, UAW consumer counsel* “plans to give price increases to the auto industry, then they’ll bo dishing them out by the bucket.** Montgomery made these statements to a reporter after OPA announced that higher prices are on the way for Chrysler, Ford and Hudson cars. These companies applied for increases to offset pay boosts granted under tho administration’s wage-price formula. Milk. Batter. Gas May Follow Milk, butter and gasoline also are on the list of items on which pressure is being applied to OPA for higher prices. Until the new car prices are announced for the three firms* they and their dealers must continue to sell cars at current ceilings. but they can require an agreement that customers will pay the increase when it is put into effect. An OPA official who asked to remain anonymous estimated that the price hike for manufacturers probably will not exceed three percent (or $45 on a $1,500 model), and he predicted that dealers might be required to absorb part of it. Dealers* prewar profit margins already have been trimmed by OPA to prevent the full amount of earlier increase* from being passed on to the public. “Least Entitled,* 9 Charge Montgomery said that “of all industries, the auto industry is least entitled to price increases.** He said OPA apparently waa ignoring a provision of the policy which requires OPA to take into account an industry’s prospects for increased production and lower costs. The auto Industry,** Montgomery declared, “is going to have to work hard to make lese than it did In 1936-39.** The stabilization formula requires a level of prices which assures at least 1936-39 profits. An OPA official made the point that the wage-price formula excludes industries operating at temporary low volume from price increases as large as other industries may receive. He said this provision would apply in the case of the auto companies. Refiners Protesting Chrysler. Ford and Hudson are the only firms which have applied for price increases thus far. Meanwhile other possible price boosts nosed into the picture. OPA, flooded arith applications for milk and butter, conferred with agriculture department officials on how to get increased supply and better distribution. And refiners protested to OPA that they should not be expected to absorb any part of a 10-cent a barrel price increase granted to producers of crude oil. If OPA decides they can’t it may mean higher prices for petroleum products, such as gasoline and fuel oil.
