Central Parasites The unit was originally owned by the War department and was brought to Pontotoc county in an effort to control external par- asites. The horn fly, lice and ticks are the most troublesome parasites in this section of the state at the present time. There are 45 similar units in operation in Oklahoma at the present time and a total of 165 units are expected to be in oper- ation when the program gets into full swing.

They returned to Ada Monday afternoon. Raymond says there was much interest in the Hereford Heaven bull. One prospective bidder an- nounced he would donate it to the South Dakota agricultural college if he got the bull, and that might have had something to do with the bidding in the sale, Raymond says. Most of the: puo- ple there wanted it to to tho college, so the offsprings could be scattered over the; territory. Strawberry Ceiling Price Raise Asked WASHINGTON.

At the school building in Allen, 252 window paines were reported broken out with the roof being damaged in many places by the large ha_il storms. Covering about two miles a- round Allen, the town itself re- ported more damage than in any surrounding area. Allen business houses were damaged severely as many roofs were riddled and many windows broken out of store buildings in the same manner as in the resi- dential section. Young gardens were beaten in- to the ground and Allen residents report that there is 'practically no fruit left on the trees. Crops that were up in the surrounding community were damaged. One farmer reports that his oat crop was beaten down and he considers it almost a total loss. Fittstown caught a large por- tion of hail, but hail stones were small and practicaly no damage resulted. The skies over Ada got dark about the time of the hail storm in Ada, but little hail accompani- ed .19 inch of rain. The high Tuesday was 65 degrees and the low Wednesday morning was 52. Yearly Increase In Pay lor Men In Service Is Asked WASHINGTON, April 10, A house military subcommittee recommended' legislation today to give a yearly pay raise to all members of the armed forces. The boost would be given to of- ficers and enlisted men alike. The proposed increase is the same a- mount the house approved last week for federal employes. The raise was proposed by Rep. Harness (R-Ind.) as a sub- stitute for. army and navy recom- mendations of a flat 20 per cent boost in pay and allowances of service personnel. Army spokesmen earlier this week told the military commit- teemen the overall cost of the Harness plan would be 000 pearly on the basis of the planned strength of the armed forces for July 1, 1947. Harness said the proposal would be referred to the full committee this week, so that it could be acted upon before the house begins consideration of draft extension legislation, now scheduled for Friday. He contends that with the in- creased pay and other induce- ments enough volunteers will be secured to make continuation of the draft unnecessary.

Home of U.N. for Next 5 Years Yet To Be Picked By Delegates U. S., Britain Opposed to Any Move on Iranian Question Flour Outlook Is No Brighter Flour Rationing Plan With- out Coupon Worries Causes Officials to Look at Wheat Situation By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, 10, A flour rationing plan without coupon worries for housewives hung fire today as the govern- ment took another careful look into the wheat situation made tense by widespread hunger a- broad. Secretary of Agriculture Clin- ton P. Anderson said he expect- ed to decide during the day whether to put into effect an ord- er requiring millers to cut their sales of flour to bakers and re- tailers by 25 percent. The cabinet officer disclosed to a news conference last night that he had ordered officials in his department to prepare such an order. Should it be issued, it would have the effect of ration- ing supplies of flour to bakers and retailers, but not to consum- ers. Reports To Be Made Officials have explained that machinery for consumer ration- ing of these products could not be set in motion in time to help out during the current food crisis. Anderson's decision may well hinge on a report scheduled to be issued by the department's crop reporting board at 3 p. m. (EST) today on. stocks of wheat on farms April 1. With commercial supplies at abnormally low levels, the gov- ernment and millers must look to farm stocks for the bulk of all. export and domestic requirements until the new crop starts moving to market in June. Because-there has been heavy feeding of wheat to livestock in areas unable to get corn, some officials .expect the wheat, stock report to show that remaining supplies are insufficient to meet present consumer demands and export commitments. In the event, the order curtail- ling domestic consumption of flour would appear to be neces- sary. Fresh Pressure Meanwhile fresh pressure for more wheat for hungry areas came from Director General Fiorello H. La Guardia of the United Nations relief and re- habilitation administration. La Guardia planned to appear today before the combined food board the United States, Great Britain, and insist that member countries al- locate tons more a month than the tons now being granted UNRRA. Discussing other phases of the food problem Anderson said the agriculture department also is working on new measures de- signed to obtain larger quantities of meats and food fats and oils for the needy abroad and to strengthen the voluntary conser- vation program recommended last month by President Truman's famine emergency committee. He would not elaborate on these measurers, however. State-Owned Land Sale Is Success OKLAHOMA CITY, April 10, Marl in, secretary of the slate school land commission, said the commission's first nt- tempt at large scale selling of slate-owned lands without min- eral rights was successful at Ma- dill yesterday. Forty two Marshall county tracts of acres brought 192.34, an average of an acre and above the ap- praised value. Marl in said acres, with mineral rights, here sold in 1945 for an average price an acre of Maryland is south of the Ma- son-Dixon lino. Feminine Japan Votes for First Time In History; Forget Home Duties for Day EDITOR'S NOTE: Women made news today as they cast their first ballots in Japan's his- tory. Here's the "women's angle from a woman's angle" by one of the two accredited women cor- respondents in Tokyo. Helen J. Folster, representing Austra- lian newspapers, wrote it for the Associated Press.) By HELEN J. FOLSTER TOKYO, April 10, ine Japan voted today for the first time in history. It was a heartening sight to see mama- san lining .up to cast her vote for democratic representation. Observers, both Japanese and allied, were surprised by the large percentage of women at the polling places. They just hadn't correctly figured out the psysco- logy of Japanese women. For seven months of occupa- tion, the Japanese have been ex- posed to ideas of freedom and democracy. The women, even though they were considered in- ferior and hardly worth bother- ing about, are nonetheless neith- er deaf nor dumb. This new freedom sounded just as good for them as for the men oil Japan. Probably it sounded even better. Important As Menfolk A great many Japanese women figured out a lot .of things for themselves, too. In the past, they had put up with the same hard- ships as the men, but without equal privileges. Keeping house and scrounging for food in ruin- ed cities had toughened them a lot. They became as important as their menfolk in keeping the family going. Today it as if it had dawned upon them that this sharing of responsibility should carry right through to having their say at the polls. Without doubt, politics had been discussed m plenty of homes. It is impossible to say how much influence the man of a family will have on his women's vote. The Japanese are brought up to believe that obedience is a prime virtue. However, it struck me in the polling places I visited in Tokyo all day that the women voters seemed rather an independent By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER NEW YORK, April question of where the United Nations will make its home for the next five years came up for final discussion among security council today, amid mounting opposition to Russia's demand that the Iranian issue be dropped by the council. Both the United States and Great Britain were known to bo firmly opposed to any move to take the Iranian question off the council agenda before May 6, tho dale on which Russia and Iran. are to report on the removal ol Soviet troops from Iran. Indications came from various delegations that the majority of other delegates would BO along with the U. S. and Britain, es- pecially in view of the letter from Heussein Ala, Iranian am- bassador, made public yesterday, i.- which he asked that the coun- cil reject the Soviet proposal. Closed Meeting: The delegates met in a closed meeting today to discuss with Secretary General Trygve Lia whether the U. N. would remain at Hunter college in the Bronx, move to the Spcrry Gyroscopo plant at Lake Success on LonR Is- land, or possibly switch to somo other site outside the New York area. It is up to Liu to make tho selection on the interim site, but it was understood ho wanted tha final opinion of the council dele- gates. A United Nations spokesman said the delegates would not take up today the Soviet proposal that the Iranian question be removed from the security council's agenda. Nevertheless, it was understood that the delegates would take up "administrative affairs" at today's meeting, among which was likely to be discussion of n date for tna next public meeting of the coun- cil, at whic" the Iranian situation is likely to be aired, Russian Present Andrei A. Gromyko, the Soviet delegate, who returned to thu council yesterday after a 13-day boycott, was present at' today's secret meeting. He had no com- ment on the Iranian letter. The Iranian council received formal notice ol the Russian de- mand for dismissal of the Iranian case at the end ol its muetins yesterday when President Quo Tai-Chi of China announced that he had a Soviet letter for Ihcj council's consideration and also that he had u letter from Iran. The Soviet communication had previously been made public, taut the Iranian statement cauRht del- egates by surprise. Transmitted by Ambassador Hussein Ala, it disclosed that des- pite the agreement on Soviet troop withdrawals, oil concessions and political questions which Tehran has made with Moscow the government at Tehran wants the security council to continue to keep an eye on the situation until all Red Army forces are out of the country. Council May Meet May t "It is the desire of my govern- Ala wrote, "that the mat- ters referred by Iran to the se- curity council remain on its agenda as provided by the reso- lution adopted 4 April, 1946." The resolution he cited pi'ovid- ed that the council should next take up the Iranian case on May 6, deadline by which Russian troop removals arc supposed to be complete. In his letter insist- ing on dismissal, Soviet Ambas- sador Andrei Gromyko said tins council's action had been incor- rect and illegal in approving this resolution, Inquiry among various delega- tion leaders brought to lir'ht thn wldoly held viow that Hussin's proposfi] as sot forth by Oroniy- LJ had virtually no chance of ac- ceptance. Kcrr Military Committee Favors Nine-Months Extension of Draft By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST WASHINGTON, April house leadership signaled today for double-quick action on a bill for straightaway continua- tion of the draft until Feb. 15, 1947. Almost as soon as the house military committee decided in favor of this nine-month exten- sion, the measure was given a preferred place on the chamber's calendar, with debate scheduled for Friday and Saturday and a vote hoped for before the week- end recess. The present law is due to ex- pire exactly five weeks from to- 15, and that space leaves congress with compara- tively scant elbow room should legislative tangles develop be- tween house and senate over de- tails of the measure to be enact- ed. New Battle Expected Indications were that the bitter battle which preceded the com- mittee's 15 to 8 extender recom- mendation late yesterday would be renewed on the house floor. But supporters of continuing selective service viewed with comfort the fact that the house vote, when it comes, probably 'will be a roll-call and on the sole issue of extension. Many mem- bers, they believe, are fearful of voting on the record in an elec- tion year against a proposal (Continued on Page 2 Column 3) Storm Signals Fly High Over Capitol On Service Merger By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON, April 10, Storm signals flew high over Capitol Hill totlay as a hill to olace the army, navy and air forces under a single department of common defense began its leg- islative voyage. The first public, forecast of rough weather ahead came from Senator Robertson a member of the senate naval com- mittee who summarized what many lawmakers have been say- ins privately since the unifica- tion plan began to take shape. Robertson told a reporter that everyone favors coordinating buy- ing, shipping and scientific re- search activities of., the service. he added, "any eliminate the traditional navy place on the cabinet faces a stiff fight." The Wyoming senator's criti- cism came as Chairman Elbert Thomas (D-Utah) of the-military committee and Senator Austin ranking minority mem- ber, planned an appearance be- fore the naval committee to ex- plain the unification plan in de- tail. Until President Truman cmne (Continued on Page 5 Column 1) out for the single cabinet post several months auo, Chairman Walsh (D-Mass.) of 1hc navy group publicly had opposed any merger plan. Walsh has kept his own counsel since then, but he is expected to call his committee together for a closed door dis- cussion of the legislative shortly. Robertson, after reading the unification bill and an accomp- anying report made public yes- terday by a military subcommit- tee, said he believed that all the claimed advantages could be re- tained without abolishing the present war and navy depart- in on Is. The merger bill was referred formally to Thomas's military committee for further study. While saying there was no desire to "push or force" the legislation, Thomas told reporters that with the recent war fresh in the public mind, "wisdom would indicate reasonably quick action."
