THE ADA EVENING NEWS BUY MORE WAR BONDS 42nd 283 ADA, OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY Time to Quit Ban On Daily Attacks In Congress On Russia WASHINGTON, March house lead- ership signalled for a halt today in the almost daily round of speeches critical of Russia or other World War II allies of the United States. There was no formal action, but party leaders passed the word that they feel the present delicate international situation calls for temperance in references to United Nations members. Privately, they told reporters they were disturbed by repeated ''inflammatory speeches, aimed mostly at Russia." There is no intent or desire to curtail the right of members to free speech on the house floor, they said, but the time is not appropriate for what one of them called "Rus.'iia-baiting." In recent weeks there have been almost daily jabs at Russia in one-minute house speeches. Great Britain also has come in for criticism, particularly since Winston Churchill's speech at Fulton, Mo.

Scott, president of the state board of agriculture, said to- day that the number of bee hives in Oklahoma has been reduced 25 per cent this winter because bee- keepers are unable to get sugar to feed the bees. Tin; trouble i.i, Scott says, that the bees have to have cane sugar for winter feeding. If they are given sorghum or some other form of sweetening, they'll store some of it away in the hives with the typical bee eye for a rainy day, and the honey later stored away in the summer season will taste of the sorghum. Cane Sugar Blends The cane sugar taste, on the other hand, blends with the hon- ey so nobody can tell the differ- ence. That's the bee that Oklahoma beekeepers will attempt to put in the OPA's bonnet when they meet here Tuesday to form a state association. The sugar ra- tion for bee-feeding is handled on ration boards, boards don't understand why the bees should be cut in on the short sugar sup- ply, the bees have to go without their winter food. After all. points out Scott, the bees arc robbed of their own sav- ings of honey every year, so it's only fair to try to keep them cat- ing during the winter. ItlR Industry Involved "We've got a honey industry in Oklahoma right Scott said. "We're trying to build it up to a 000 industry, but we can't do it if we can't maintain the bees. Now it's in the process of declining, unless we can do somelhing about it." The beekeepers also will try to find a means of combatting dis- eases which are hampering oper- ation of hives in the state, Scott said. a local basis by and where the Earth Shocks Cause Worry In California Earth Slides Break Los An- geles Aqueduct, Huge Boulders Still on Move LOS ANGELES.

Lindy Goodwin Is Questioned About Robberies Being Jchwabe Is Urging Resolution Passage Says Making Last Dec. 7 War-End Would Smash Some Production Blocks WASHINGTON. March congress approves his res- olution declaring the war ended last Dec. 7 it smash some reconversion bottlenecks, Rep. George Schwabc (R.-Okla.) said today. He chose the Dec. 7 date, he said, because it was the anniver- sary of Pearl Harbor. "If the house and senate pass- ed this concurrent resolution, which requires no signature from the president, it would end the emergency period and would terminate within a few weeks a lot of bureaus created during Schwabe told a re- porter. "It is one way of getting rid of a lot of surplus wartime em- ployes now on the federal pay- roll. In my opinion it would do more to stimulate reconversion and bring us back to economic normalcy than anything that could be done by congress." He added that passage of the resolution by congress would break many bottlenecks that have been impeding production and would "strip the executive branch of government of a lot of i'.s war powers." "In peace ho said, "we cannot continue to exist under wirtime orders and edicts and regain our economic equlli- bruim." Llndy (Rabbit) Goodwin, who was arrested Thursday morning at Eufaula on a warrant issued at Mena, Ark., was returned to Ada Thursday afternoon by Chief of Police Dud Lester, who want- ed to question him on some in- cidents in Ada.

Chief Lester tried to connect him with several robberies in Ada, but Goodwin denied having anything to do with the case of which the police chief question- ed. Goodwin told Chief Lester that he didn't want to return to Ark- ansas to face burglary charges there. Mena authorities allege that Goodwin took several cases of whiskey from a whiskey store, transported them to Oklahoma where he disposed of the stolen property. Antlers authorities arc expect- ed in Ada to further question Goodwin about other robberies at Antlers. The check protector that Good- win admits taking from the Ant- lers firm was the one used by bogus check writers that were caught in Ada a couple of moths ago after they were identified at Norman.

Hume SHU Apprehensive The chief executive's hopeful- ness was echoed by two import- ant figures on capital hill, al- though diplomatic officials re- mained apprehensive over ulti- mat Soviet intentions in the Iran area. Senate Majority Leader Bark- ley (Ky) commented "It has been my opinion all along that the situation isn't as bad as the head- lines would seem to indicate." And Senator Popper (D-Fla) told reporters. "I think entirely too much emphasis has been laid on the bad side of the Interna- tional situation. I think people who do so arc rendering a public disservice.
