This work is in conjunction with the legal institutes committee and the committee on post war -aids for ex-service lawyers of the Oklahoma Bar Association. Is For Area ’Hie Ada institute will be for the benefit of veteran lawyers in the south-central part of the state and is expected to attract veteran lawyers from all of the counties surrounding Pontotoc county. The tentative plans of the central committee of the Oklahoma Bar Association call for courses at Ada, Alva, Altus, Anadarko, Ardmore, Bristow, Clinton, Enid, Guymon, Hugo, McAlester, Muskogee, Oklahoma City, Pawhuska, Poteau, Tulsa, Vinita and Woodward. Other cities will be added if the need becomes evident. Expect Hervey To Be Here An institute in Oklahoma City starts the same day as the Ada institute. Members of the local bar are proud of the fact that Ada has been chosen as the first to launch this program, according to local attorneys. It is expected that Mr. Hervey, former dean of the law' school of the University of Oklahoma, will Small Twister Hits Laxton Community Causes Damage, No Ona Hurt; Hail Causes Soma Lass In County, Ada Suffers Under Hardest Deluge in Sward Years It didn’t take long to do it but weather that boiled up early Monday afternoon over Pontotoc county left plenty of marks with an almost record rainfall in Ada, hail in several communities and a small twister that hit the Laxton area south of Fitzhugh.

Runs (Continued on Page 2 Column 2) Worst of All Mine Disasters Killed 1,549 in Manchuria TOKYO, April 16._(/P>—The The world’s worst mining disaster —an underground explosion which snuffed out 1,549 Chinese and Korean lives in the Honkeiko colliery in Manchuria — was reported for the first time today by allied headquarters—almost four years after it happened. The accident occurred April 26, 1942. under Japanese occupation. It was kept secret by the military from even the Japanese government for a month. The explosion was set off by a short circuit which ignited methane gas. That exploded an accumulation of* coal dust in tunnels for a distance of more than two kilometers (about Wa miles), said Kirk V. Cammak, mining engineer with the natural resources division of allied headquarters. Most of the deaths were caused by carbon monoxide poisoning. Several hundred w'ere needless; a mine official refused to turn on ventilating fans for fear of spreading the fire, Cammack said. The only comparable mine disaster was at Pas De Calais, France, in 1906, when 1,100 French miners w*ere killed, Cammack added. The Honkeiko Colliery, located in the Pen Hsi-Hu coal field, produced 900,000 tons of coal in 1941. -fc- MARSHALL REACHES TOKYO TOKYO, April 16.—(^—General Marshall, special envoy to China, and Mrs. Marshall landed at Atsugi airport this afternoon. They were accompanied by Mrs. Henry A. Byroade, wife of Brig. Gen. Byroade, aide to Marshall. The party were guests of General MacArthur at the American embassy tonight. Marshall is returning to China. NO SERVANT PROBLEM TOKYO, April 16.—(ZP)—There W'Ul be no servant problem for occupation wives coming to Japan. the Eighth army labor officer said today. He reported many cooks, maids and other domestics had been obtained in anticipation of the families’ arrival next month. (weather OKLAHOMA — Generally fair this afternoon, tonight and Wednesday; warmer W’est and north tonight; low temperatures lower 50 s except near 45 in Panhandle, warmer Wednesday. FORECAST FOR APRIL 16-19 Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Nebraska—general warmer trend Wednesday and Thursday; cooler Friday and Saturday; warmer again Sunday; lowest temperatures averaging 2-8 degrees above normal in Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri and near normal in Oklahoma; showers in general light amount Thursday or Friday over eastern Nebraska, eastern Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Word has just been received by attorneys for the Denco Bus company that the Corporation Commission had a hearing on Monday afternoon on the motion for a new trial filed by the Oklahoma Transportation company because of the order granted by the Commission last Thursday permitting the Denco Bus Lines to run a five-bus schedule daily from Atoka to Ada to Oklahoma City and return. The commission, without requiring the presence of Denco’s attorneys, overruled the Oklahoma Transportation company’s motions at the time of the filing. These motions were a continuance of the company’s protests against granting the Denco permit. After the Oklahoma Transportation company’s motions were over-ruled, their attorneys gave notice of appeal to the supreme court and asked permission to file a supersedeas bond which, if granted, might prevent the Denco Bus company from running its buses on the proposed schedule until the appeal is heard. The commission set down for hearing and argument the question of granting the appeal bond for Friday, April 19, at 10:00 a.m. It is the contention of Denco’s attorneys that it is within the discretion of the commission to deny the granting of an appeal bond where the traveling public is affected as in this case, and that because of public interest and convenience the . granting of the bond should be denied. If no appeal bond is allowed by the commission, Denco officials say they have all equipment ready and will immediately start running the five-bus schedule, daily from Atoka to Oklahoma City and return. Fund to Highway Patrol Approved Court Okays Allocation From Contingency Fund OKLAHOMA CITY, April 16.— (ZP)—A $30,000 allocation from the governor’s contingency fund to the state department of public safety to finance an expansion of the highway patrol was held valid by the state supreme court in a 5 to 3 decision today. The court held the governor had acted within his legal discretion in making the allocation and that the emergency city by the department of public safety could not have been foreseen "by the legislature. A writ of mandamus was issued to the state auditor directing him to honor claims against the allocation. The additional funds were sought by Safety Commissioner J. M. Gentry, who said the patrol needed 25 additional troopers to combat an increase in crime and traffic accidents. *- Tax Commission Is Upheld by (owl Denied Beer Licenses Where Dancing Permitted OKLAHOMA CITY, April 16. —(ZP)—The Oklahoma Tax Commission wTas upheld by the state supreme court today in two actions denying beer licenses under the state law prohibiting the sale of beer where dancing is permitted. In one case, appealed by J. M. Cox, Oklahoma City, the courl; ruled that an application for a retail dealer’s beer license to operate a “package store” should be denied when it was shown the store will be on the same prem> ises as a dance hall. In the second case, appealed by Harry B. Stewart, Oklahoma City.othe court held that the tax commission may use its discretion to deny an application when the applicant’s place of business is “near where public dancing is held, and is connected by sidewalks, constructed so that it is manifestly for use only of patrons of said establishments.” a Laxton school building was in session; the south wall and roof were damaged but none of the children was hurt. The Joe Zumbro home was blown away, that of Alf Kennedy moved about 12 feet from the foundations, a barn torn down on the Dewey Denton ranch. Found Selves in Yard The Zumbros reported they noticed the walls weaving in the high wind, then suddenly found themselves in the yard, where they clung to a tree until the blow was past. Mrs. Zumbro suffered bruises from hailstones. Fruit in the neighborhood was reported ruined, and many trees damaged by the wind and nail. Pleasant Hill suffered some from hail. Oldtimers in Ada, meanwhile, said that 2.67 inches of rain that fell over a 30-minute period was the hardest here in several years. Rainfall during the night brought the total to 3.49 inches. The water came and went in a hurry in Ada. Some downtown stores were damaged when water rushed over the curbs. At Stevens Ready to Wear, water gained entrance from a back door.

However, witnesses were “on top* and being called in for questioning. ‘This grand jury is empowered and is designed by law as a means not only that of bringing lo trial persons accused of offenses upon just grounds, but also as a means of protecting the rights of good citizens and to see uhat no good citizen is accused unjustly no matter from what source these accusations might come or what motive might prompt them,” was part of the retraction given jurors by Dis-rict Judge Tai Crawford.

That bill would forbid the^ drafting of anyone under 20 years of age after May 15. But it still is only a bill, not a law. It is just what the house thinks the law should be. Now it’s up to the senate to act, maybe in a week or two. Senate May Veto Differently And the senate probably will vote for something quite different from the house version. Then the house and senate will have to get together to work out some kind of compromise on the two different bills. That compromise will. be the one that becomes law, provided the president signs it. Undoubt- COUNTY HAS HAD 16 DRAFTED THIS YEAR Since the first of this year, Pontotoc county draft boards have filled their quotas, but most of the young men who went into the services during that time were volunteers. Selective Service Board No. I had calls for 8 in January, 6 in February and 7 in March—21 in all. Fifteen enlistments made it necessary to draft only six. Board 2 had calls for 35—12 in January, 13 in March and IO in February, but had to draft only IO.

Philip Busby, manager of the 4B Ranch, has en route to Ada 400 head of two and threj year old steers which will be unloaded Wednesday and taken to the ranch. This makes a total of approximately 800 head of cattle he has brought into Ada in the past six weeks, 400 of which are already scattered over Pontotoc county pastures. (Continued on Page 2 Column 5) Tour Freeholders In Inspedkw Trip * Monday Night Moating Brings Discussion of Old Charter, Administration Four members of the Ada board of freeholders left Tuesday morning on a trip of inspection that would take them to Duncan and to Chickasha to investigate city charters and governmental methods. They are Tommie Maines, Wendell Thomas, Claude McMillan and the board chairman, Dr. Charles F. Spencer. Their trip followed a Monday night meeting at which long and interested discussion took place on the history of handling of Ada’s affairs under the 1912 charter, with partfeular attention to legal provisions on municipal government. Members of the board reported Tuesday that much useful information was obtained through J. D. Willoughby, soon to retire as commissioner of public works and property, who has also served as mayor and Bb is familiar with methods here from his experience in two of the three city commission offices. Burrell Oliver, who succeeds Willoughby in May, was also present and took part in the discussions. Friday Ross Taylor, Bartlesville city manager, is to be here to outline how affairs of that city are handled. Numerous groups will be called on by the Ada board to advise and discuss proposed charter amendments before a final draft is ready for submission to the voters. edly it will be different from the individual house and senate versions. But no matter what happens, the house and senate will have to come through with their compromise bill by May 15. That’s the date when the present selective service act — the draft law—dies, unless congress extends its life. It surely will. In shoving through yesterday’s bill, the house ignored some very urgent pleas of Secretary of War Patterson, General Eisenhower and other war department officials. What Was Asked—And Got Here’s a line-up of what officials asked for and what they got: They wanted — The draft law extended from May 15 at least until May 15, 1947. The house voted—To extend it only 9 months, until Feb. 15. They wanted—The draft to be a continuous thing for one year. The house voted—To ban any drafting between May 15 and Oct. 15, or a 5-month holiday. They wanted—Continued drafting of youths as young as 18 years of age. The house voted—To ban drafting of anyone under 20. They granted—An increase of 20 percent in pay for army men. The house voted—An increase ranging from 50 per cent for privates and apprentice seamen to IO per cent for major generals and rear admirals. (The 50 percent increase for privates would raise their pay from $50 a month to $75.) Volunteers Prefetred The officials suggested a limit of 18 months’ military service for draftees, if the draft were continued another year. The house put the 18-month limit on service but, as noted, chopped continuance of the draft to 9 months. The officials frankly said they’d much prefer to fill the army ranks with volunteers instead of draftees. General Marshall, recognizing the urgency of the Manchurian fighting, tomorrow will fly di rect from Tokyo to Peiping, the Sino-Amencan truce headquar ters, to again throw his powerfu influence into peace negotiations Marshall, President Truman’: special envoy to China, cancelled an important conference with Chinese Premier T. V. Soong in Shanghai to go direct to the truce headquarters city. There he will meet the impo tent Sino-American committee o three which—with substitutes for all three original members—has not had authority to carry out its assigned mission of affecting truce between battling Chinese government and Communis forces. He effected both military and political truces last January but neither was put into effect and shortly after he went to Washington for conferences, the situation worsened. Marshall’s decision to fly to Peiping was made after the No 2 Chinese Communist leader Gen. Chou En-Lai, called the fighting in Manchuria full scale civil war. Jloth Marshall anc Chou were original members o:! the committee of three, along with Minister of War Chen Cheng, who is ill. Marshall con ferred with MacArthur in Tokyo today. There was a virtual news blackout-unexplained, but presumably caused by poor communications — from Manchuria today. However. Associated Press Correspondent Spencer Davis radioed from Mukden that the situation in embattled Changchun, the Manchurian capita], was so tense that a neutral plane probably would be sent there to remove five American correspondents—one a woman. Latest news from Changchun said Communists, attacking from three directions, had captured Changchun’s three airfields. Government Seeks e To Unsnarl Butter, Bread, Meat Mess Wartime Controls Back an to Spur Butter Production; May Restore Controls an Slaughtering, in Battle On Black Market; Dairy Loader Says Mara Will Cut MUk Output By WILLIAM A. KINNEY WASHINGTON, April 16. —(AP)— The government mapped a new attack on the snarled food situation today involving butter, bread, meat—and black markets. Wartime controls were ordered slapped back in an effort to spur butter production and Stabilization Director Chester Bowles foresaw a “real improvement within the next‘60 days” on his front. The senate agriculture committee called for more details on factors dislocating meat distribution, while OPA and the agriculture department moved to restore other wartime controls on slaughtering with the aim of spreading available supplies more evenly. —  f A potential bread problem had members of the senate small business committee seeking ways of meeting famine relief quotas for overseas without impairing the nation’s flour supplies. Baking industry spokesmen told the committee yesterday that if these supplies fall 25 percent below last year government bread rationing or black markets in the food are probable. Higher Dairy Subsidies The move for butter production was bracketed with OPA action to keep consumers bills at their present levels for milk, butter, cheese and other dairy products. A program of larger subsidies for dairy farmers was announced Debate Opens On OPA Life Exfansian Hearing in Senoia Committee; Truman May Ba Asked ta Help By J. W. DAVIS WASHINGTON.

Administration - opposed amendments, on which house voting will start tomorrow, include: 1. To take farm products out of OPA’s control. 2. To end the meat subsidy which the government now pays processors to keep down retail prices. 3. To require price ceilings high enough to assure a profit on every item of each manufacturer, rather than “fair and equitable” ceilings on an industry - wide basis. Greater returns for amount invested—Ada News Classified Ads Walkout Hits Tire Production Today AKRON, O., April 16. — UP) — Passenger tire production was halted today at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. as CIO rubber workers protested the transfer of some employes to a different department, a company spokesman said. There was no report immediately on the number of workers affected, but the company declared the stoppage began as a slowdown late yesterday and that work gradually ceased. Goodyear said the slowdown followed transfer of some workers from the curing room to an-other department, leaving a .smaller number of men to handle the same amount of work. The transfer, Goodyear added, was in connection with “the elimination of a temporary operation which regular operators previously had performed.” Greater returns for amount invested—Ada News Classified Ads Bowles On Stand WASHINGTON. April 16, UP— Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles said today any increase in coal prices as the result of a strike settlement would be fixed strictly on the basis of the administration’s wage stabilization policies. There will be “no round about methods,” he told Senator Cape-hart (R-Ind.) during testimony before the senate banking committee on legislation to continue OPA a year beyond June 30. “Suppose the operators and the union get together on a 20 per cent increase in wage** and the operators ask a $5 increase in the price of coal?” asked Capetian. Bowles replied it would be up to the wage stabilization board to say what part of the wage increase could be approved as the basis for a price increase. “I want to say very frankly,” he continued, “that we are not going beyond the amount approvable. There will be no exceptions as far as we are concerned from the wage stabilization program.” Stale Secretaries Convention lo Ada C. of C. Sec rotaries Gather Here May IO, Samuel R. Pettingill Speaker The secretaries of the chamber of commerce of the state will meet in Ada. Friday, May IO. W. A. Delaney, Jr., president of the Ada chamber, has secured Samuel R. Pettinghill, one of the outstanding writers and speakers of the nation, to address the gathering. A former congressman f r o n Indiana, Pettinghill has been on'* of the well known columnists for the last several years. He is said to be a forceful speaker. Mr. Delaney hopes to have a statewide hookup for the speech on May IO. in bakery products and ice cream. Leonard E. Hurtz of Omaha, chairman of the dairy industry committee, contended in a statement that the new program would lead to a decline in milk production “and continued shortages” of dairy products.” Charges “National Scandal** The senate agriculture committee was plainly exercised about the meat situation which Packer James D. Cooney testified wras a national scandal which makes prohibition look like petty crime.” With the FBI ordered into action against one group of black marketers, there were hopes of curbing some illegal transactions in meat, but opinions differed sharply whether the reimposition of slaughtering controls would achieve its aim of improving the general meat situation. Price Administrator Paul A. Porter said the effect of the controls would be to “provide for better distribution of meat supplies at ceiling prices to retail stores.” Secretary of agriculture said it meant “in reality a share-the-livestock program.” COURT TO HEAR JONES* SUIT ON REAPPORTIONMENT OKLAHOMA CITY, April 16, (.pi—The state supreme court met this afternoon to hear argument in a suit by Jenkin Lloyd Jones, editor of the Tulsa Tribune, testing validity of a partial senatorial reapportionment act passed by the last legislature. The act in question separated Grant county from Kay county in district nine and placed it in district seven with Alfalfa and major counties. Jones contended that the legislature could not lawfully make a partial reapportionment but must redistrict th? entire state if it takes any action at all. The court has assumed original jurisdiction in the case.
