BullHereford Heaven Animal To Be Auctioned Saturday In S.D., Over ABC NetworkNation's on TravelBinge These DaysTire* or No Tire*, And Faying in Human Life CHICAGO, March 28.—(ZP)— The nation s traffic deaths in February totaled 2,450, a 45 percent increase over the same month a year ago and only 7 percent below' traffic's deadliest February in 1941, the national safety council said today. The council said that on the basis of last month’s record, it stood pat on its prediction of a near-record toll of 38,000 traffic deaths in 1946—“unless the drivers and pedestrians decide to do something about it.” The council said latest information indicates that January mileage on rural highways increased sharply, even exceeding the pre-war year of 1941 by 7 percent. “This indicates,” the council said, “that the nation—tires or no tires, cars or no cars,—is going on a travel binge and paying for it in human life.”'Accident' Nay Have Been Murder TAHLEQUAH. Okla., Mar. 28. 7™—Two men were in separate jails today charged with murder and state troopers wrere investigating what was first reported as an automobile accident in which Hubert Ashworth was fatally injured March 21. County Attorney Houston B. Teehee said Henry Isaecas, 45, and Melvin Arthur Cook Young, 28, were the men charged. Isac-cas was in jail at Stilwell and i oung was held here. Ashworth was taken to a Prairie Grove, Ark., hospital with the report he was injured in a traffic accident. State Troopers R. T. Kramer and Emmett McIntosh said there was evidence of foul play. OKLAHOMA — Fair tonight and Friday, continued mild with somewhat warmer Friday; lowest tonight 45 northwest to 50 east and south. Another Hereford Heaven bull makes the national airwaves Saturday—this time at Burke, S. D. The animal is C. Royal Rupert 6th, Turner-bred bull owned by L. P. Carpenter and selected by Bill Likins of the flying L. Ranch and Dean W. L. Blizzard, Oklahoma A. and M. college, for a very special occasion. That occasion will be an auction sale at Burke to be broadcast Saturday at 11:30 a.m. by the American Broadcasting company (including KADA in Ada) iii a gigantic benefit sale to help finance a Burke community hospital undertaking. The Burke sponsors of the project a few days ago bought C. R. R. 6th from Carpenter. They also rushed pictures of the fine Hereford off to the postcard people to have his likeness printed on several thousand cards being used in promoting the auction in the Burke area. So another Hereford Heaven bull takes the national spotlight —and with a community project like the Burke hospital undertaking for a background, there’s no telling how high the biddin will go for the valuableHOI Undecided H Russia's Absence To Paralyse CouncilUnity of Action Among Major Powers Still Recognized os Heart of Organize?

Affable and appearing well-rested despite the fact he had not retired until after 2 a. rn., the ambassador parried reporters* questions as to whether he had been in communication with anyone during the night about the Iranian matter. ‘‘I sleep at night,” he said. To another question, he replied, “it’s a beautiful day, isn’t it.” At the consulate, he said “I don’t know” when asked if he would attend the executive ses-* sion of the council this afternoon.Real Controls OnIn More Olios TULSA, Okla., March 28.—(ZP) —O. E. Marshal], area OPA rentals officer, disclosed today that Hendrix Wolf, Stillwater attorney, had been recommended to head an office to be opened in tho Payne county seat, April I. Marshall said' registration of till—' * Stillwater rental units—occupied largely by Oklahoma A. and M. college students — would begin about April 15, with similar action to follow at Cushing, Yale and Perkirj. Controls will be effective Monday, with rents frozen, as of March I last year, Marshall added Estaolishment of the Stillwater office apparently was promoted by pretests from veterans attending the college that high rentals were forcing many to withdraw. By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER I NEW YORK, March 28, (ZP)— Russia backtracked slightly today on its sensational walk out from the United Nations security council, but the council still faced a critical decision on whether Russia’s absence from Iranian discussions would virtually paralyze it. Secretary of State Byrnes and Edward *R. Stettinius conferred with their advisers at length in preparation for this afternoon’s secret session of the council. Indications were that Byrnes would insist that no single member, however powerful, had the right to hamstring the council’s work and that hearing of the Iranian case should proceed with or without Soviet Ambassador Andrei Gromyko in attendance. Unity Is Key On the other hand some pre-session speculation revolted around the point that unity of action among the United States, Russia, Britain, France and China is the heart of the new world peace organization, and the physical absence of Russia from any meeting was seen by some as perhaps a parading break in this unity. Experts said the situation is one for which the United Nations charter makes no provision whatever. Russia’s backtracking came in two developments today following up the tense moment at yesterday’s council meeting when Gromyko strode impassively from the chamber under his instructions from Moscow not to stick around if and when Iranian Ambassador Hussein Ala started speaking. .-Withdrawal Limited Today Soviet Professor Boris Stein attended a meeting of a committee of experts cnarged with working out rules of order and^rocedure^for the council. signaling specifically for the first time the limited nature of the Russian withdrawal. Soon afterward Victor Un-lancher, press secretary of the Russian consulate, where Gromyko makes his headquarters, said unequivocally that Russia had not “walked out on the United Nations” but only on the Iranian dispute. Russia, he said, would be represented at the secret council gathering today. Subsequently a Soviet official said there would be an announcement later as to whether Gramy-ko personally would attend. * *-Charges May Be EIM in KillingCounty Authorities Investigate Pittstown Shooting At noon Thursday, no charges had been filed in connection with the fatal shooting of Ervin Loman late Tuesday afternoon at Pittstown. County authorities made no statements as to when the case would be filed, but the attorney f-r the defense said that he expected charges to be filed Thursday. Charges will possibly be filed rn a city justice of the peace court. A thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the case was made Wednesday by members of the sheriffs force, who started the investigation soon after the shooting was reported to their office late Tuesday.Week’s Rain Total Readies IJ9 Indies If all the land in the world were equally divided, each persons would receive approximately 18 acres. Rains that fell Wednesday added .63 of an inch to the rainfall of the preceding two days and brought the week’s total to 1.59 inches.

Hald in Spy Com, Turn* to Ruction Watt By NOLAND NORGAABD NUERNBERG, March 28.— —Joachim yon Ribbentrop’s former personal secretary testified before the international military tribunal today that a secret Rus-sion-German pact dividing eastern European territories, including Poland, was brought from Moscow by the nazi foreign minister in August, 1939 before the rt of the war. The witness, Margaret Blank, said the pact was in a sealed envelope bearing the inscription “German-Russian secret agreement,” and that she had seen the original copy. She said she was charged with keeping its existence secret. Russians Objected Miss Blank was permitted to testify only after the tribunal had considered the matter in private 75 minutes and over the strenuous objections of the Soviet prosecutor, Gen. R. A. Rudenko. The witness also told the court Ribbentrop began peace overtures as early as the winter of 1943 when with Adolf Hitler’s p amission he had sent a Professor Berger to Switzerland for the purpose of finding a basis for peace negotiations through Bern, Stockholm, Madrid, Lisbon and the Vatican. On April 20, 1945, Ribbentrop r” ,o notified Hitler that he wanted to undertake peace negotiations, she said, but Hitler would “sanction negotiations only if military successess were present.” The defense then summoned Paul Otto Schmidt, Hitler’s official interpreter, to testify.

Lt. Nicolai G. Redin. 29, arrested by the FBI Tuesday night on a warrant charging he induced an unnamed person to give him data on the Destroyer Tender U. S. S. Yellowstone, had the aid of Russia’s top west coast representative to help him make the decisionCongress Told Otherwise Army to Retain Some Mon Already Inducted Redin spent his second night In jail under $25,000 bail but Soviet Consul-General Michael S. Vavilov, who flew here from San Francisco, said he would post the bail today unless Redin, member of the Soviet purchasing commission at Seattle, were released on his own recognitizance. A person close to the office of U. S. District Attorney Henry Hess said he believed Redin would be released to Vavilov’s custody. The spokesman, who asked that he not be named, said cash bail would be meaningless but if the consul-general were charged with delivering Lt. Redin to Seattle, appearance there would be a virtual certainty. While official Washington withheld comment on the case, the house committee on unAmer-ican activities was told by Elmer W. Sherwood, American Legion Americanism director, that foreign nations are trying to place their agents into veterans’ organizations. WASHINGTON. March 28— (A*)—Maj. Gen. Willard S. Paul told congress today that unless the draft law is extended the army will be forced to retain indefinitely some of the men who already have been inducted. Paul, army personnel chief, appeared before the senate military affairs committee to back up the administration’s request for a year’s extension of the Selective Service act. Earlier, the committee heard from Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey that the act must be extended if the army is to get the 600 OOO men he said it needs in the next 12 months. Paul said the army wanted to limit to 18 months the service of men already inducted but the only way it would be done is through a continuation of the draft. Both Hershey and Paul contended that voluntary recruiting would not fill the army’s needs. Wants Only Just Enough Group Talks At CapitalDiscusses Situation Hora With Patrol Hood AudWith Governor Kart A group of 14 Ada citizens went to Oklahoma City Wednesday to discuss some county problems with state authorities, and met with even more success than they had previously anticipated. The first stop Wednesday morning was at the office of Commissioner J. M. Gentry, where the case of Highway Patrolman Harvey J. (Powerhouse) Hawkins, who is now under suspension from the patrol, was discussed. The group, composed of one woman and 13 men, included a representative of the Ada Minister^!

Hawkins was charged with embezzlement last week by County Attorney Vol Crawford and was bound over to district ourt trial by Franklin Bourland, justice court judge, after he heard the case. After leaving Gentry’s office, the group went to the governor’s office where they discussed the Hawkins case with Governor Bob Kerr. who called Randall S. Cobb from the attorney-gener-al’s office. The governor was interested In a grand jury petition that has been signed by more than 1,000 Pontotoc county citizens. He offered any assistance that he might be able to render in connection with the grand jury. Mr. Cobb answered questions and gave the group all the information that .he was able to give at that time. The group of Ada people considered the trip entirely successful. They also visited the Federal Bureau of Investigation office.(mar Drive GelsON to Start WNk Contributions Asked The American Cancer Society’s drive for funds received a pre-drive boost Tuesday night, when civic club mem! prs spontaneously donated $57.54 at a ladies night banquet.

In 1945 175,(HJO people died of Ada isn’t going to let anything happen to that all-metal hangar offered this city by the War Assets Corporation at a bargain price until the people of Ada get a chance to vote on it. Members of the Ada Chamber of Commerce and other citizens after the offer was presented Thursday noon, voted to go ahead with borrowing of enough money to buy the hangar now and so see that Ada citizens get first chance at it. The proposition voted is for the C. of C. to borrow $20,000 to cover the cost—the offer was for $17,400 for a hangar that cost the government $42,000—from the two local banks. The vote was unanimous. Dozens Sign Note Just about everyone present got in on signing of a note more than covering the $20,000 to endorse the hangar-buying opportunity. They signed endorsement from $1,000 down to $50 and others who were not present are to be given an opportunity to join in the support of the move. The city of Ada will call a bond election soon to cover the purchase cost, plus experse of moving the hanger (already crated for shipment) to Ada, providing concrete floors and piers and setting up the all-steel building, a 160 by 130 foot quonset type airplane hangar. Coaid Sell It Easily The C. of C. borrowing is to assure possession of the hangar until the voters can indicate their decision—knowing, too, that other cities are anxious to buy the hanger and that it can be sold readily to some other community if Ada voters turn down the offer.    # Gordon Witherspoon first outlined the offer and read resolu tion* adopted by the C. of C ‘    “    ai Ribbentrop and Foreign Minister >1< ‘ • “ V.

He declared the matter was irrelevant and that the witness was not competent to testify concerning the alleged treaty, thus posing one of the most delicate questions to be presented to the tribunal since the war crimes trial opened more than four months ago. The tribunal immediately recessed to discuss the matter in private. Gen. Rudenko charged that at tempts of attorneys for both Von .    .    k----- Ribbentrop and Rudolf Hess to bring the reported secret pact into the trial were “purely provocative.” • Alfred Seidl, counsel for Hess, jumped up with a declaration that only two copies of the treaty were made when it was signed in Moscow in August, 1939, and that Von Ribbentrop took one to Berlin.

Expected To Reject French IdeaLikely to Oppose Economic Blockade of Spain WASHINGTON. March 28— (ZP)—The United States probably will reject French proposals for an economic blockade of Spain as a means of hastening the downfall of Generalissimo Franco, diplomatic officials predicted today. Proposals for some sort of economic quarantine, particularly for a halt to American and British oil shipments, were included in a French note which arrived at the state department yesterday. The note also was sent to Britain and Russia. Diplomats, who asked anonymity, said they understood France agreed in the note not to bring the Spanish siltation before the United Nations security council immediately. This country and Britain have opposed council consideration of the Franco matter.    ^ France implied, however, that it might take such action later if its new suggestions were rejected. MRS. TRUMAN’S HOME CLUB MAY VISIT WHITE HOUSE INDEPENDENCE, Mo.. March 28, (J*)—The Independence bridge club may meet soon in the White House. Mrs. Bess Truman dropped In at the club meeting this week to invite the ten members to her Washington home for a visit. 'Hie first lady has been a member of the club for 20 years. “We’re all planning to accept the invitation,” said Mrs. C. J. Noel* “We are centainly thrilled.” She added the visit may be the second week in April. The army is willing. Paul said, to accept restrictions on its size, length of service of men, and the release and noninduction of fathers. “The army asks you to insure having every man it needs and not one man more,” Paul Ibid. “Keep it (selective service) on the books and you may be assured that we will never call one man who we do npt need or can obtain as a volunteer. That is our position before you and the country.” Major General Hershey estimated that the army requires about 50,000 men monthly but can obtain only one-fifth of that number through enlistments if the selective service law is permitted to lapse on May 15. He was the first witness as the senate military affairs committee began two weeks of public hearings, decided upon after the committee deadlocked 8-8 on the administration’s request for a year’s extension of the draft.

It is often term- board of directors recommending borrowing of money now to buy the hangar. Luke Dodds, mayor-elect, said that he had seen similar hangars erected in the Southwest Pacific and that such an offer was a real bargain. Luther Edge announced that doors that cost $4,200 can be had for $800 each—the doors are not ! included in the hangar offer. Various questions from the aud-1 ience brought out other information on the offer.

Morrison, superintendent of city sc nods, was appointed to head the drive in this county, in an effort to raise the assigned quota of $3,000. The American Cancer Society says this is the way the money will be appropriated: “Forty per ct nt will be spent nationally on a great coordinated program of re search under the guidance of The National Research Council . . . Sixty per cent of the money collected in each state will be retained within that state for preventative education . . . examination centers . . .
