TrumanTrainTFor Horseshoe Pitching President Starts Early Morning Walks For Conditioning ‘^UINGTON, March 27.— ™—President Truman has start-e spring training for the horseshoe pitching season by taking early morning walks around the streets of Washington. Today, for example, he strolled .Pennsylvania avenue and adjoining streets for 15 minutes before returning to the White House for breakfast. He was accompanied by two secret service men. The secret service detail was caught by surprise when Mr Truman recently began taking his J a i^-#‘constitutionals” along virtually deserted streets. They had to rush out without hats or coats up with him-bite House visitors told reporters yesterday that the president is looking forward to pitching horseshoes on the south grounds soon. Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said today the chief executive expects to’stick to the ‘Missouri barnyad” style of heaving the hooves, rather than frying anything fancy.

Schoolmasters To Meet With Jaycees Ada Must Decide Right Away an War Assets Corporation Offer of Big Hangar The Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday will be the occasion, but the subject matter is of general concern, so that all who are interested are invited to attend the discussion part of the noon hour program. *LTh^e wiI1 ** explanation of the offer to Ada of a war surplus all-metal hangar, 160 by 130 feet in dimensions, crated and ready for shipment, that cost the government $42,000 and can be had by Ada for $17,500. - City officials will also explain some of the factors involved—arrangements that would have to be made for the shipping, for concrete flooring, for setting up of the steel structure and related details. They will invite questions about the offer and the place such a hangar would have in putting Ada’s big airport north of the city into use. Ada must decide whether or not the offer will be accepted and must decide right away, as disposition of the hangar can not be deferred indefinitely.

What kind of financing would be required to get the hangar now, and whether Ada is ready to go ahead will be taken up at the Thursday meeting.  *--- > Secretary of State Byrnes would make no statement.

LANCASTER, Pa., March 27. —(ZP)—Raging out of control for more than two hours, a general alarm fire destroyed nearly 3,-000,000 pounds of tobacco and wrecked a four-story warehouse early today. Police said it was one of the costliest fires in the history of this eastern Pennsylvania tobacco center. Tobacco company spokesmen estimated loss at close to $1,000,000.

No one was injured. Cause of the blaze was not determined. George S. Mann, operator of the warehouse, said the loss of the tobacco brought about “the worst tobacco shortage in my memory.” He said Pennsylvania cigarmakers as a result must either curtail their operations drastically or close down completely.” Many Generals And Admirals Retired WASHINGTON, March 27, LF) —The army and navy have retired more than 425 generals and admirals since hostilities ceased.    * The army has put into civilian clothes 415 of the one time peak One Berlin butter placed lawns made of real grass on top of his vans to keep the J interiors cool.
