THE ADA EVENING NEWS  Average Set March Paid Circulation  8078  Member: Audit Bureau of Circulation  42nd Year—No. 303  ADA, OKLAHOMA. MONDAY, APRIL 8, 1946  Veto Seen lf Farm Parity Move Stands  President Reported Determined to Act Firmly To Keep OPA Extension Uncrippled  By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH  WASHINGTON, April 8. <<P>— A high administration official expressed belief today that President Truman will veto price control extension legislation if congress tacks the controversial farm parity amendment to it.  The official made this statement to a reporter privately as the administration’s economic high command called for renewal of OPA by May 15 “without the crippling amendments which are now being proposed almost daily”  In a report to the president on the third anniversary of the hold-the-line order, the directors of five government agencies said that if the emergency powers are continued through June, 1947, disastrous inflation can be averted.  Ask Controls, Subsidies  They asked not only for maintenance of price ceilings, but for continuance of food subsidies, authority to keep on channeling scarce materials, and for enough money to finance these programs properly. These powers expire June 30 unless renewed.  The possibility of an OPA extension bill veto was raised as farm state lawmakers told reporters they will try to write into the legislation a proposal to boost farm parity prices.  This amendment already has been passed by the senate as a rider to 65-cent minimum wage bill, but Mr. Truman has announced he will be compelled to veto the measure because of the rider. The house has yet to act on the legislation.  Seek Farm Price Revision  Stabilization officials have estimated the farm amendments would increase retail food prices about 15 percent and boost the cost of living generally about six percent. The proposal would revise farm prices upward to include the costs of agricultural labor.  “Some members of congress seem to feel that if the amendment were hooked to the price control bill, the president wouldn’t dare veto the bill,” a high-ranking administration official said. “I think he would.  “I think he would veto any measure, and without hesitation, if it would result in only sham price control.” .

Carpenter Bull Makes Sale History  Animal Brad on His Ranch Furnishes Climax af Unique South Dakota Sale Today  For the first time in history, a bull sale is being carried on over a national network and to get the effects possible a Hereford Heaven bred bull was selected to be sold over a radio hook-up originating at Burke, South Dakota.  The bull is C. Royal Rupert 6th, grandson of two undefeated champions of all big shows. He was owned by L. P. Carpenter and bred on his ranch, selected by Dean W. L. Blizzard, Oklahoma A. and M. college, and Bill Likins, owner of the Flying L Ranch of Davis for the special occasion at Burke.

Earlier plans for the sale of the bull were not complete as it was first announced that it would be sold in the morning. Mr. Carpenter said that bids on the bull w f ould be received until 6 p.m. Monday.

The animal has such ancestors as Prince Rupert, H. T. Tone, T. Royal Rupert 116th and the 81st bull. It is a straight Hazlett bull that was not selected because of its background, but because of its appearance on the day the two men were looking for such a bull.  Mr. Carpenter said that Dean Blizzard and Mr. Likins had visited several other Hereford Heaven ranches before they visited his ranch and selected his bull to represent Hereford Heaven in the South Dakota sale.

FIVE CENTS THE COPY  Notorious Jap 'Hellship' Is Rotting Hulk  Rte battered hulk pictured above at a Takao, Formosa, dock, holds bitter memories for scores of IT..S. servicemen. It is what is left of the Jap "hellship” Enoura, used during the war as a prison ship. In December, 1944, the Enoura, carrying U S prisoners of war from Manila, had just reached Takao when American bombers made direct hits, partially sinking the ship. A total of 483 Yanks were drowned or killed. Of the remaining prisoners, fewer than 500 survived. They were shipped to Japan for imprisonment. This exclusive picture, made by Harlow Church, NEA-Acme Far Eastern manager, is the first made in Formosa by a U. S. photographer since 1936, when the Japs barred  the island to all Occidentals.

Cartwright. a resident of Fitzhugh and Ada for more than 30 years, had been constable for the Percy Armstrong justice of the peace court for some time.  Funeral services were held Monday at 3 p.m. from Smith Funeral Chapel, burial in Memorial Park.  More than two years ago his only son, Sgt. George Cartwright, was killed in a plane crash while in army air forces service, in Washington state.  Cartwright for a time as a young man was a farmer in the Fitzhugh community, then was employed by the Frisco railroad, later being transferred to Ada.  Several years ago he became an employe of the street department of the city of Ada, and continued at that work until about two years ago when, at the insistence of his physician, he retired from that type of work.  A heart condition persisted and in the last few months he has had several attacks.  A friendly, genial person, “Ruff” was highly regarded by his many acquaintances.  He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Ella Cartwright; his mother, Mrs. Margaret Cartwright of Fitzhugh; a sister, Mrs. Oren Mason of Apache: four brothers, Albert of Fort Worth, Bill of Atoka, Jim and Ed Cartwright of Fitzhugh.

H. Hearing Renewal Brings Mora Argument  By CLAIR JOHNSON  WASHINGTON. April 8, I.T)— Franklin Delano Roosevelt, died a year ago this week, but his name and policies still are the subject of hot political oratory.  Debate about the late president breaks out frequently in congress, and political leaders said today they expect his program to be an issue in the coming elections.  House Democratic Leader McCormack of Massachusetts contended that republicans already have injected Mr. Roosevelt’s name into the campaign by “trying to smear him” in the investigation of the Pearl Harbor disaster.  Republicans hotly denied this. Reps. Keefe (R-Wis.) and Gearhart (R-Calif.), members of the Pearl Harbor investigation committee which reopens its public hearings briefly tomorrow, asserted their only desire is to tell the whole story of the sneak Japanese attack.  GOF To Center On Truman ‘‘When the last word is written those who cried partisanship in their miserableness will draw their reward in the contempt of the American people which they so richly deserve,’* Gearhart said in a reply to McCormack.  Some republican leaders, who asked not to be named, said that while many of their campaign speakers undoubtedly will assail the administrations of both Mr. Truman and Mr. Roosevelt, party members are being urged to concentrate their fire on Mr. Truman.  One ranking republican said the democrats will be the ones to bring up Mr. Roosevelt’s name most frequently.  “A lot of democratic congressmen would like to ride into office on his coattails again,” he asserted.  Two Admirals To Talk  Tomorrow’s reopening of the Pearl Harbor hearings was ordered to hear additional testimony from Adm. John R. Beardall, naval aide to Mr. Roosevelt, and Adm. Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations at the time of the disaster.  Senators Ferguson (R-Mich.) and Brewster (R-Me.) told reporters they want to follow up a previous witness’s assertion that when intercepted Japanese messages were taken to the White House on the night of Dec. 6, 1941, Mr. Roosevelt read them and declared, “this means war.”  Refolding!)* Sausage to Go Up  WASHINGTON, April 8.—(SP) —Retail ceiling prices for about 85 per cent of all sausage products will be increased one or two cents a pound, effective Thursday.  Announcing this today, OPA said the changes will raise general prices for such products average of I Vi cents a pound.  The price hike results from a 16 cents an hqur wage increase recently granted to packing house workers. Higher prices for veal, lamb and mutton go into effect today, while beef and pork prices were raised a week ago.  The sausage price increases apply to such products as bol-onga, braunschweiger. frankfurters, and breakfast pork sausages.  We are planning a program of progressive de-control during the next eight months that will get us back to our traditional system of free economy.  —OPA Administrator Paul Porter.  Fire Damages Apartment  Spreads ffrom Fire Set By Small Boys Building Fires To Set OH .22 Blanks  Considerable damage was done to an apartment at 112 South Mississippi avenue Sunday afternoon when fire from a nearby garage* spread to the apartment and burned a portion of the southeast corner before firemen reached the scene.  The damaged apartment is owned by Mrs. J. B. Hill. The occupants were not at home and did not know anything about the fire until they were advised by phone.  Some damage was done to the furnishings, but the fire was brought under control before it spread to other parts of the building.  Started By Boys  Fire Chief Ed Haley said that he learned that the fire was started by two small boys, who were building fires to throw .22 calibre blanks into it to hear the noisy report.  The boys were seen setting other small fires along other buildings in the alley between Main and Twelfth in the 700 block.  The fire chief said that black splotches were found on other buildings where the fire had not been large enough to set the buildings on fire. One fellow said that he ran the two youngsters off when they started to build a fire against his house.  Began Back Of Garage  The fire was started at the back of a garage at 708 East Twelfth and spread to the second floor of a two-story building where several apartments are situated. *  A barn owned by Howard Cope, 822 West Ninth, caught fire from burning trash that was set Sunday afternoon. Members of the fire department reached the scene of the fire before it had done extensive damage.

Council Unless It Drops Iran Case, Accepts Russian Views  Jap Vote Day Outlook Is Now Anything But Dull  On# Early-Voting Village Sends 86 Par Cent ta Poll#; Riotous Demonstration in Tokyo Demands Sh idaho rn Quit  By RUSSELL BRINES  TOKYO. April 8.—</P>—With Japan’s election two days away, a 14-man committee of the “democratic People’s front” appeared today before Premier Shidehara with a demand that his cabinet resign immediately.  The committee, claiming to represent 70,000 persons, called on Shidehara as a followup to yesterday’s exposure left-wing demonstration in which at least 10,000 Communist-led demonstrators swarmed into the premier’s courtyard, broke windows and injured eight Japanese policemen. The crowd, which was hereded quietly away from the residence by heavily-armed U. S. military police, did not accompany the committee today.  Two Groups Make Demands  Three resolutions were presented to Shidehara by the group. One from farmers condemned the amount of rice provided under the compulsory purchase rules; another from* labor unions opposed the announced government plans for drafting legislation to prohibit labor unions from assuming control of industries during strikes; the  third was an eight-point demand tor the cabinet resignation because of “its inability to solve the country’s problems.”  Kyuichi Tokuda, secretary of the Communist party who led yesterday’s demonstration and headed the committee today, , handed the resolutions to Shidehara, discussed each point and then insisted on an answer from the premier.  Shidehara Nervous Shidehara. facing the sharpest direct criticism his cabinet has received in its six months of existence, appeared flushed and nervous but he answered all questions calmly with variations of this reply:  “I came here to listen to you, not to argue.”  The committee crowded into the room with reporters and Allied correspondents and grouped around Shidehara, who remained seated, gazing at the ceiling during Tokuda’s presentation of their case.  Tokuda touched on most of the current Japanese problems, and accused the Shidehara cab-  (Contmued on Page 3 Column 5)  Eisenhower Asks Extension Of Draft for National Security  Coal, Coke Soda Dwindle and Steel Production Drops  PITTSBURGH, April 8,    —  The strike of 400.000 AFL- United Mine Workers in 25 soft coal producing states moved without fanfare into its second week today as low coal and coke stockpiles brought deeper cuts in steel production.  Quiet prevailed throughout the coal fields and representatives of the operators and the union were awaiting resumption of contract negotiations in Washington tomorrow.  The parleys were adjourned Saturday after union Chieftain John L. Lewis and Harry M. Mosses, U. S. Steel Corporation’s representative in the negotiations, had testified publicly.  Lewis claimed Moses had tried to negotiate a secret agreement to keep U. S. Steel’s “captive” mines working during the general stoppage. “Captive” mines are those owned by companies which use their whole output.  Moses declared the other members of the operators committee were “fully informed” of his actions in offering to operate the mines on the basis of the extending the present contract with retroactivity to April I on any wage or other contract agreement eventually reached at the conference.  The magazine Steel said the strike was beginning to have its effects on steel production and that curtailment of steel output promises to be intensified if the dispute lasts many weeks.  Unemployment in coal dependent industries has reached the 12,000 mark, 8,000 of whom are steelworkers. The rest are in coal carrying railroads, trucking concerns and fabricating plants.  Indications are that the ranks of those idled by the strike will continue to swell this week.  + Soys Na Ona Knows What Requirements Will Be; Truman Attitude Brings New Controversy  WASHINGTON, April 8—UP) —General Dwight D. Eisenhower told congress today that nobody— military experts or law makers alike—knows how many men the armed forces will be short if the draft expires.  “No one can possibly forecast exactly how short our requirements will be; but everyone I have heard agrees we will be short.” the army chief of staff told the senate military committee.  The senate group has agreed to vote tomorrow on the administration request for a one-year extension of selective service beyond the expiration date of May 15. Gen. Eisenhower’s reappearance before the group pointed up the extension request.  Two Estimates Vary Widely  Eisenhower noted that Maj. Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, selective service head, had estimated the army shortage at 400,000 men if the draft expires, that Maj. Gen. W. S. Paul, army personnel chief, put the shortage at 165,000. and that other estimates ranged between these two.  “I say with all respect to you gentlemen that you don’t know.” Eisenhower said. “It s a gamble any way you look at it. And gentlemen. in my opinion, any gamble with the national security of the United States at this time is a gamble with peace and security of the world.  “With all the sincerity I possess I urge you, do not take this gamble.”  Congress Sends One Worry lo Truman  Anti-Petrillo Measure Finally Disposed Off  WASHINGTON. April 8— (ZP) —Congress plucked one long-irritating thorn from its side on the iveek-end by sending the socalled anti-Petrillo bill to President Roosevelt.  Climaxing more than a year of intermittent debate in both chambers, the senate late Saturday passed a compromise version of the measure designed by its sponsors to curb activities of James C. Petrillo, head of the American Federation of Musicians.  Previously approved by the house, the bill would provide penalties ranging up to a year in jail and $1,000 fine for compelling or trying to compel radio stations to:  Hire more employes than they need, pay for services not performed, pay unions for using phonograph records, or halt programs onginatin abroad or those in this country of a non-commercial, cultural or educational nature.  "War Not Over”  Eisenhower disagreed with contentions that the “war is over.”  “If we pretend that the war is over the second that the shooting stops, we are likely to lose the aims and purposes for which we made the sacrifice of war.” he testified.  The only way the army can be certain of manpower to carry out pledged and assigned tasks, he said, is to extend the draft for a year.  President Truman’s firm insistence on draft extension, army-navy. merger and universal military training plunged lawmakers today into fresh controversy that cut sharply across party lines.  Truman For Extension  The chief executive emphasized in his Chicago army day speech Saturday that he wants selective service continued for a year, desires the military forces consolidated in one department and is just as strong as ever for a peacetime training program which he insisted would not involve “conscription.”  But in some senate quarters his declaration that a necessary army of many men “can be continuously and adequately supplied for another year only by the selective service act” was interpreted as paving the way for congressional delay on training legislation.  Senator Bridges (R-NH), a member of the military committee, told a reporter he doesn’t see how any training system could be set up as long as the draft continues.  “You can’t draft everybody who is 18 and have anybody left to train.” he remarked.  Greater returns for amount invested—Ada News Classified Ada  Demands (ase Be Removed From Council Docket  Takes Attitude Issue Settled By Agreement Between Iran and Russia  By CHARLES A. GRUMICH  WASHINGTON. April 8. CPL-| Russia posed a new threat of boy- !  cott before the United Nations security council today unless the council abandons its scrutiny of the Iranian case and accepts the [Soviet view that the issue has been settled in bi-lateral agreement between Iran and the Soviet un ukm.  Moscow took a direct hand last night, broadcasting both a firmly phrased demand that the council remove the Iranian case from its docket and a telegram from Iranian Premier Ahmed Qavam to Prime Minister Stalin expressing satisfaction with the new agreement between them.  “Must Be Dropped**—Gromyko  Moscow said Soviet Ambassador Andrei A. Gromyko had advised U. N. Secretary-General Tryg\> Lie in New York that the Iranian case “must be dropped’ at once rather than remain on the agenda for reconsideration May 6. by wht h time all Red army troops are supposed to be out of Iran.  In a letter to Lie dated April 6, Gromyko was quoted as saying the council’s retention of the Iranian case for re-checking on May is “not right and is illegal and is contrary to the charter of the United Nations .... there is no reason to leave the Iranian question before the security council for any further discussion.”  The instrument of Russian protests against the council’s hearing of the Iranian issue thus far has been the walkout begun by Gromyko on March 27, when Iran was put on the agenda over his vigorous opposition. Gromyko has absented himself from a I I business sessions on the council since then, although he has rejoined his council colleagues at social functions.  New Debate Looms  Gromyko’s letter to Lie promised to stir new debate when the council meets at 3 p. rn. EST tomorrow after a long weekend recess, during which Poland announced her intention to bring the Spanish question before the council and Moscow sought to show Russia and Iran had reached complot** agreement.  The Moscow radio quoted Premier Qavam as saying “full mutual understanding has been reached between two friendly and neighboring countries” and also quoted Stalin’s reply to Qavam;  “I am certain the agreement which was reached due to these talks will serve for further progress and strengthening of cooperation and friendship between the people of our countries.”  CHINA DENIES REPORT  CHUNGKING, April 8. <.T*~ The Chinese government denied today a report that it had requested Russia to delay withdrawal from certain cities in Manchuria.  The report, published by the communist New China Daily News under a Yenan dateline, said »hat Gen. Tung Yen Ping. commander of national forces in Manchuria, had asked the Russian army chief of staff to postpone Soviet withdrawal from certain cities.
