Dozens Fly In All types and models of air- 50 in at Walker Airport and their occu- pants were transported by auto- mobiles to Ada for the meeting. Two men from Ft. Worth, Tex., arrived early and furnished the group with some information that was desired by flight instructors in Oklahoma. Clarence Rawls, manager of the Walker Airport, said that 150 men were in attendance at the meet- ing during the morning and that most of them arrived in Ada by plane. Get Needed Information One of the flyers said that every flight instructor is interest- ed in the part of the G.I. Bill that provides for flight training for ex-servicemen. The flyers -fur- ther sitid that any flight instruc- tor missing the meeting was "missing out" on some informa- tion that would be hard to obtain from other sources. Col.

U.S. to Recognize Tito's Government WASHINGTON, April United States has agreed to full diplomatic recognition of the Tito government of Yugo- slavia, the state department an- nounced today. The announcement was made after assurances had been receiv- ed from Yugoslavia that it ac- cepts existing treaties between the two countries. The department released two letters from Secretary Byrnes which were delivered to the Yugoslav charge d'affaires here April 1G. The second expressed American willingness to accept as Yugoslav ambassador to this country Sava N. Kosanovic Tito's minister of information at Bel- grade. The United States ambassador will be Richard C. Patterson, Jr., formerly envoy to the previous I Yugoslav government of King Peter and more recently apoliti- cal representative in Belgrade. I The United States thus nor- l rowed the circle of governments in Europe which it does not fully niost instances be- cause of differences with Russia over their make-up and policies. The step appeared to be on2 more move in the direction of restoring organized peace and normal rela- tions to the war-torn continent.

FSA Farm Purchase Program End; Soon OKLAHOMA CITY, April 18. farm security admin- istration's farm purchasing pro- gram will be closed to both civ- ilians and veterans after the end of May, agency officials announc- ed today. State FSA Director Joe C. Hayes added that the agency now is unable to meet even twenty per cent of its veteran demands for farm operating loans. He explained that a deficiency appropriation provided by cong- ress recently was hardly suffi- cient to cover loans pending .at the time the bill .became effect- ive. Hayes said that at the present time the FSA has no funds avail- able, even for veterans, for loans for farm- operations. "But we have about available for farm purchase loans to returned he said. "However this situation is not so good because the high price of farm land makes it impossible for borrowers to repay the loans and make a living from these farms."

Iran Slaps On Complete Censorship Suddenly Resorts to Drastic News Control, Using Old Russian Form By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER 'WASHINGTON, April state department announc- ed today that it is taking up the question of Iran's new tight cen- sorship of out-going news with the American embassy at Tehran. The department declined to say specifically whether it was merely inquiring or strongly pro- testing. (An Associated Press delayed dispatch from Iran, the first re- ceived .since imposition of the new censorship, said that the U.S. embassy was sending a note of protest to the Iranian foreign ministry. An'embassy spokesman said the note would express "grave concern" in strong diplo- matic language.) "Taking The Matter Up" The guarded comment that "we are taking the matter up with the American embassy at Tehran" I suggested that full information on I the whys and wherefores of the Iranian case might be a primary I objective of the state depart- ment's action. j The department started an ur- gent two-way protest to deted- I mine: i 1. Whether the action was Rus- I sian inspired, and 2. What the United States might be able to do to get the iron lid lifted. The'possibility of a formal pro- test is being explored. Indications are that an explan- ation is being asked from the Iranian government of Premier Ahmed Qavam. Suspect Russia Is Factor This is expected to show whe- ther there is any connection be- tween yesterday's diplomatic imposition of "blind censorship" and the increasing Soviet pres- sure on Qnyam's government be- cause of the still pending row over Iran in the United Nations security council. The form which Iran chose for control over out-going news is one that was .used-in- Russia about March 1 or earlier until March 29 but then ified. Can Distort Stories It is known both among news- papermen and within the state department as "blind censorship" because it denies, correspondents the opportunity 'to learn what changes have been made in their censored dispatches. This may be used by an unscrupulous censor to distort the meaning of stories. The new censorship policy as disclosed to correspondents by the Iranian ministry of posts and telegraphs was reported to Wash- ington by the American embassy at Tehran Th'e start of the censorship was so tight, the embassy told the state department, that reporters were not pven allowed to inform their home offices. The corres- pondents in Iran include repre- sentatives of the Associated Press, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, United Press, Chicago Daily News and Time magazine. Has Been News-Free Iran has been a free-news country and, in the opinion of American diplomatic authorities, the steady flow of information out of that country during its continuing dispute with Russia has 'served Iran's interests well on the whole. A check of American officials brought the information that at the moment Iran" appears to be the only country in the Russian orbit which actually has a com- pletely blind censorship. Ro- mania, Bulgaria, Poland and oth- iers were described here as hav- ing imposed varying degrees of control on outgoing news dis- patches but with nothing now as extreme as the form applied by Iran. House Votes OP A Extension, Porter Attacks It Bitterly Sets Life At Jim Whifaker Is Taken by Death Came to Ada From Arkansas in 1892 James David "Jim" Whitaker, 78, Ada pioneer died at his home in Portland Park west of Ada at a. m. Thursday. Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Criswell Funeral Home.

Deadlock Over Food Crisis Measure Holds Up Reduction By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, April British-Canadian American deadlock today over to ease the world food crisis delayed an order which will put this nation on a diet of less bread and flour. Representatives of the three countries met yesterday at an- other of a long series of meetings of the combined food board. But they failed again to agree on what each should do in the way of contributing wheat and flour to the famine-stricken areas. Secretary of Agriculture An- derson has ready an order to cut American supplies flour 25 per cent, but he is withholding his signature ending further efforts of the three countries to agree on joint relief efforts. Others Could Help More The American government is taking the position that the ma- jor burden is falling upon this country and that Canada and Great Britain could contribute more than they have offered. It is the official view here that both Britain and Canada could cut deeper into their reserves and reduce their own consumption further. Meanwhile, as the White House announced that President Tru- man will discuss the food crisis in a radio address at p.m. (EST) tomorrow night, the chief executive's famine emergency committee called upon the gov- ernment to adopt still more rigid food conservation measures. Present Measures Inadequate The committee headed by former war food -Administrator 'Chester Davis released, with Mr. Truman's approval, a letter of recommendations it sent to the White House April 9. The letter declared that present voluntary measures are inade- quate and said existing price con- trol regulations are causing ex- cessive feeding of grain to live- stock. It urged the government to hike .ceiling prices on corn and by-product protein ac- tion which, the committee .said, would curtail livestock feeding and thereby make more grain available for food for the hun- gry abroad. Corn Price Action Uncertain There was no immediate indi- cation whether any action will be taken on the corn price recom- mendation. This step has been suggested from time to time in re- cent weeks, but it has been re- sisted by government stabiliza- tion officials on the ground that it would constitute a break in the hold-the-line price policy. Urging immediate adoption of the proposed flour restriction or- der, the famine committee declar- ed that the government's volun- tary program under which con- sumers are asked to eat 40 per cent less wheat products will not save as much as had been ex- pected. Urges Tri-Party Jap Coalition Cabinet Secretary Startles Japanese By RUSSELL BRINES TOKYO, April mier Shidehara's chief cabinet secretary startled political Japan tonight with a statement urging a tri-party coalition government and declaring: "In my opinion, the Shidehara cabinet must resign and consult with the three parties as a means of obtaining political stability." The secretary, Wataru Nara- hashi, considered, .one of the cab- inet members closest to the pre- mier, announced' that. Shidehara would become president of the progressive- patty tomorrow and would consult with lowiro Nato- yama, president of the liberal party, and Tatsu Katayama, social -democrat leader, regarding a co- alition. Hatcyama, under fire from some elements and under investi- gation by General MacArthur's headquarters to determine if he is qualified to occupy the diet seat to which, he was elected last week, recently demanded resig- nation of the Shidehara cabinet. He said he would attempt a coali- tion among conservative elements with the objective of attaining the premiership for himself. Both the liberal and progres-. t sive parties actually are conser- j vative, as are many in the social- democratic party and so are many 1 the independents elected to the diet. The liberals won 139 diet seats; the progressives 93, social democrats 92 and independents 80 of the 466 places. ----------------------K--------------------- Read the Ada News Want Ads.

DAVIDSON JERUSALEM, ApriM Through streets lined with barb- ed wire barricades and teaming with armed1 troops, thousands streamed into this ancient city today to see Christian worship- pers recreate with symbolic cere- monies the last hours before Christ was crucified. An undercurrent of tension prevailed throughout the holy city as Palestine's Arab-Jewish-British political controversy was complicated by a country-wide strike of civil servants, who are demand- ing increased pay and better working conditions. A three-hour walkout in sym- pathy with the was' set for today by several thousand persons employed in special war- time departments of the Pales- tine government. Although so-called terrorist groups have been idle for the past few days, there was no re- laxation by authorities, who re- mained alert against any possible outbreak. Arab Legionnaires, with automatic 'rifles slung over their shoulders, mingled with the colorfully garbed celebrants of the sacred rites of antiquity. Easter observance of the west- ern and eastern Christian faiths coincide this making the holy sepulchre site and other sacred places more crowded with worshippers than usual. The ancient rites of Maundy Thursday began at daybreak and will continue all day as sect after sect stages its interpretation of the events of the day on which Christ led disciples into the "upper room" for "the last sup- per." There were virtually no Amer- ican uniforms to be seen and only occasionally one of the other allies, who formerly had made Jerusalem a popular furlough spot. ------------K------------ County's Part In Cancer Drive Slow Total Third of Goal; Citizens Asked to Take Part- Not so good, is the report today on Pontotoc county's part of the drive for funds for the American Cancer Society and its expanding war on a murderous ailment.

Nine Months Legislative Defeat For Truman; Chester Bowles Calls Measure 'Impossible' PRESIDENT SILENT Hopes for Better Results In Senate; Bill Would Wreck Price WASHINGTON, April house voted overwhelm- ingly today to continue OPA for nine months, but in a form OPA Administrator Paul' Porter said would wreck price control. It was one of President Truman's legislative defeats since he enter- ed the White House a year ago. The roll-call vole on passaga was 355 to 42. The house, meeting nt 10 a.m. (EST) two hours curlier than us- ual, tossed the amendment-ridden bill over to the senate, where the White House said today that Pres- ident Truman hopes for "much belter Asked nt a news conference it the city executive had any com- ment on the house amendments, Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told reporters: "Not for print." Truman Depends On Senate Asked if the president was go- ing'to "do anything about Ross replied: "He hopes for much belter res- ults in the senate." Ho did not elaborate. A bloc of democrats, chiefly from the south, combined with republicans yesterday to so amend the bill with that Chester Bowles, economic stabilizer, said the house hnd started "n joy ridoMoward econo- mic disaster." Earlier, the housi; refused on 370 to 20 roll call vote to shelvo the continuation bill, rejecting a motion by Rep. nankin (D-Miss) to' send it back to the banking committee. Sabath Says OFA "Murdered" Before the final vote was tak- en, Rep. Sabath 80-year old dean of the house, shouted to his colleagues: "You have murdered OPA Chief Porter estimated that if the Agency collapses be- cause of congressional amend- ments, consumer prices might skyrocket as much as SO per cent over present levels. On final passage by the house, 205 democrats, 148 republicans and two minor party voted for the bill. Opposing were 33 republicans and nine demo- crats. Terms Says Bowles termed the measure "impossible" after a 35-minute conference with the president. Asked by White House report- ers if he would resign in the event it passes both houses in iu present form, he would not say. He did say, however, that he did not see "what could be done" to maintain price controls under it. As to whether there was any discussion of a veto with the pres- ident, he told reporters couldn't say. "We want price he declared. "Price control would be impossible as the bill stands now."
