THE ADA EVENING NEWS Net March Paid Circulation 8078 Mrmbrr: Audit Iturcau of Circulation 42nd 303 ADA, OKLAHOMA, MONDAY, APRIL 8, 19JG FIVE CENTS THE COPK Veto Seen If Farm Parity Move Stands President Reported Deter- mined to Act Firmly To Keep OPA Extension Uncrippled By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON. April II, A high administration official ex- pressed belief today that Presi- dent Truman will veto price con- trol extension legislation if con- Kress tacks the controversial farm parity amendment to it. The official made this state raent 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 dai- ly." In a report to the president on the third anniversary of the hold-the-linc- order, the directors of five government agencies said that if the emergency powers are continued through June, 1047, disastrous inflation can be avert cd. Ask Controls, Subsidies They asked not only for main- tenance 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 ex- tension bill veto was raised as farm state lawmakers told report- ers 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 fi5-cent minimum wage bill, but Mr. Truman has an- nounced he will be compelled to veto measure because of the rider. The house has yet to act on the lecislation. Serk Farm Price Revision Stabilization officials have es- timated the farm amendments would increase retail food prices about 15 percent and boost the cost of living gencrallv about six percent. The proposal would re- vise farm prices upward to In- clude the costs of agricultural labor. "Some members of congress seem to feel that if the amend- ment were hooked to the price control bill, the president wouldn't dare veto the a high-ranking administration of- ficial said. "I think he would. "I think he would veto any measure, and without hesitation, if it would result in only sham price control."

Council Unless It Drops Iran Case, Accepts Russian Views Jap Vote Day Outlook Is Now Anything But Dull One Early-Voting Village Sends 86 Per Cent to Polls; Riotous Demonstration in Tokyo Demands Shidehara Quit By RUSSELL URINES TOKYO, April Japan's election two days away, a 14-man committee of the "democratic people's front" ap- peared today before Premier Shidehara with a demand that his cabinet resign immediately. The committee, claiming to represent persons, called on Shidehara as a followup to yesterday's exposure left-wing demonstration in which at least Communist-led demon- strators swarmed into the pre- mier's courtyard, broke windows and injured eight Japanese po- licemen. The crowd, which was hereded quietly away from the residence by heavily-armed U. S. military police, did not accom- pany the committee today. Groups Make Demands Throe resolutions were pre- sented to Shidehara by the group. One from farmers con- demned the amount of rice pro- vided under the compulsory pur- chase rules; another from labor unions opposed the announced government plans for drafting legislation to prohibit 1 a b o r unions from assuming control of industries during strikes; the third was an eight-point demand Tor the cabinet resignation be- cause of "its inability to solve the country's problems." Kyuichi Tokuda, secretary of the Communist party %vho led yesterday's demonstration and headed the committee today, handed the resolutions to Shide- hara, 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 ex- istence, 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 strike of AFL- Unit- ed Mine Workers in 25 soft coal producing states moved without fanfare into its second week to- day as low coal and coke stock- piles brought deeper cuts in steel production. Quiet prevailed throughout the coal fields and representatives of the operators and the union wen; awaiting resumption of contract negotiations in Washington to- morrow. The parleys were adjourned Saturday after union Chieftain John L. Lewis and Harry M. Mos- ses, U. S. Steel Corporation's rep- resentative in the negotiations, tiad testified publicly. Lewis claimed Moses had tried to negotiate a secret agreement to keep U. S. Steel's "captive" mines working during the gener- il stoppage. "Captive" mines are :hose owned by companies which use their whole output. Moses declared the other mem- jers of the operators committee ,vere "fully informed" of his ac- :ions in offering to operate the nines on the basis of the exttnd- ng the present contract with rot- roactivity to April 1 on any wage or other contract agreement even- tually reached at the conference. The magazine Steel said the strike was beginning to have its on steel production and hat curtailment of steel output promises to be intensified if the dispute lasts many weeks. Unemployment in coal depen- dent industries has reached the mark, of whom are steelworkers. The rest are in coal carrying railroads, trucking concerns and fabricating plants. Indications arc that the ranks of those idled by the strike will continue to swell this week. Congress Sends One Worry to Truman Anti-Petrillo Measure Finally Disposed Of WASHINGTON. April plucked one long- irritating thorn from its side on the week-end by sending the so- called anti-Petrillo bill to Pres- ident Roosevelt. Climaxing more than a year of intermittent debate in both chambers, the senate late Satur- day passed a compromise version of the measure designed by its sponsors to curb activities of James C. Petrillo, head of the American Federation of Musi- cians. Previously approved by the house, the bill would provide penalties ranging up to a year in jail and fine for compel- ling or trying to compel radio stations to: Hire more employes than they need, pay for services not per- formed, pay unions for using phonograph records, or halt pro- grams originatin abroad or those in this country of a non-commer- cial, cultural or educational na- ture. Soys No One Knows What Requirements Will Be; Truman Attitude Brings New Controversy WASHINGTON, April Dwight D. Eisenhower told congress today that military experts or law makers how many men the armed forces will be short if the draft expires. "No one can possibly forecast exactly how short our require- ments will be; but everyone I have heard agrees wo will be the army chief of staff told the senate military commit- tee. The senate group has agreed to vote tomorrow on the administra- tion request for a one-year ex- tension of selective service bey- ond the expiration date of May 15. Gen. Eisenhower's reappear- ance 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 and that other estimates ranged be- tween 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 gen- tlemen, in my opinion, any gam- ble with the national security of the United States at this time is a gamble with peace and security of the world. "With till the sincerity I possess I urge you, do not take this gam- ble." "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 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 insis- tence on draft extension, army- navy, merger and universal mili- tary 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, des- ires the military forces consolid- ated in one department and is just as strong as ever for a peace- time training program which he insjsted would not involve "con- scription." But in some senate quarters his declaration that a necessary army of many men "can be continuous- ly 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 a member of the military commit- tee, told n reporter he doesn't see how any training system could be set up as long as the draft con- "You can't draft everybody who is III and have anybody left to hi- remarked.
