Get Needed Information  One of the flyers said that every flight instructor is interested in the part of the G.I. Bill that provides for flight training for ex-servicemen.

J. lo Recognize Tito's Government  WASHINGTON, April 18.—(ZP) —The United States has agreed to full diplomatic recognition of the Tito government of Yugoslavia, the state department announced today.  The announcement was made after assurances had been received from Yugoslavia that it accepts 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 16. The second expressed American willingness to accept as Yugoslav ambassador to this country Sava N. Kosanovic Tito’s minister of information at Belgrade.  The United States ambassador win be Richard C. Patterson, Jr., formerly envoy to the previous Yugoslav government of King Peter and more recently a political representative in Belgrade.  The United States thus nor-rowed the circle of governments in Europe which ii does not fully recognize—in most instances because of differences with Russia over their make-up and policies. The step appeared to be one more move in the direction of restoring organized peace and normal relations to the war-torn continent.

FSA FimT Purchase Progran Eads Sooi  OKLAHOMA CITY, April 18. —(ZP)—The farm security administration’s farm purchasing program will be closed to both civilians and veterans after the end of May, agency officials announced 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 congress recently was hardly sufficient to cover loans pending at the time the bill became effective.  Hayes said that at the present time the FSA has no funds available, even for veterans, for loans for farm operations.  “But we have about $500,000 available for farm purchase loans to returned veterans,” 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.”  WASHINGTON, April 18.—(JP) —The house post office committee was urged by Rep. Lyle Boren (D.-Okla.) to approve his bill to reduce air mail postage from eight to five cents an ounce.  OKLAHOMA CITY, April 18. —(ZP)—Harold Carey, state representative from Oklahoma county’s district five, today announced he would seek re-election on the democoptic ticket.  Iran Slaps On Complete Censorship  » Suddenly Resorts to Drastic News Control, Using Old Russian Form  By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER  WASHINGTON, April 18—(ZP) —The state department announced today that it is taking up the question of Iran’s new tight censorship of out-going news with the American embassy at Tehran.  The department declined to say specifically whether it was merely inquiring or strongly protesting.  (An Associated Press delayed dispatch from Iran, the first received 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 diplomatic language.)  “Taking The Matter Up”  The guarded comment that “we are taking the matter up with the American embassy at Tehran” suggested that full information on the whys and wherefores of the Iranian case might be a primary objective of the state department’s action.  The department started an urgent two-way protest to deted-mine:  I Whether the action was Russian inspired, and  2. What the United States might be able to do to get the iron lid lifted.  The possibility of a formal protest is being explored.  Indications are that an explanation is being asked from the Iranian government of Premier Ahmed Qavam.  Suspect Russia Is Factor  This is expected to show whether there is any connection between yesterday’s diplomatic imposition of “blind censorship” and the increasing Soviet pressure on Qcvam’s government because 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 from about March I or earlier until March 29 but then partially -modified.  Can Distort Stories  It is known both among newspapermen 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 Washington by the American embassy at Tehran  The start of the censorship was so tight, the embassy told the state department that reporters were not even allowed to inform their home offices. The correspondents in Iran include representatives of the Associated Press, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, United Press, Chicago Daily News and Time magazine. Has Been News-Free Iran ha? 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 completely blind censorship. Romania, Bulgaria, Poland and others were described here as having imposed varying degrees of control  t  on outgoing news dispatches but with nothing now as extreme as the form applied by Iran.  JI* Whitaker Is Taken br Death  Cam# ta Ada From Arkansas in 1892  James David “Jim” Whitaker, 78. Ada pioneer died at his home in Portland Park west of Ada at 1:40 a. rn. Thursday. Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Criswell Funeral Home.

Hutchinson were recovered late yesterday from the waters of Lake Altus where their light airplane plunged last Friday. The two Altus businessmen drowned after their plane struck a powerline and fell into the water.  House Votes OPA Extension, Porter Attacks It Bitterly  Delay Bread,  Flour Order  British-Canadian-U. S. Deadlock Over Food Crisis Measure Holds Up Reduction  By OVID A. MARTIN  WASHINGTON, April 18.—(ZP) —A British-Canadian - American deadlock today over ways 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 another 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 Anderson has ready an order to cut American supplies of 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 major 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 Truman will discuss the food crisis in a radio address at 7:15 p.m. (EST) tomorrow night, the chief executive’s famine emergency committee called upon the government 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 inadequate and said existing price control regulations are causing excessive feeding of grain to livestock.  It urged the government to hike ceiling prices on corn and by-product protein feeds—an action which, the committee said, would curtail livestock feeding and thereby make more grain available for food for the hungry abroad.  Corn Price Action Uncertain There was no immediate indication whether any action will be taken on the corn price recommendation. This step has been suggested from time to time in recent weeks, but it has been resisted by government stabilization 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 order, the famine committee declared that the government’s voluntary program under which consumers are asked to eat 40 per cent less wheat products will not save as much as had been expected.  Urges Tri-Party Jap (union  Cabinet Secretary Startles Japanese Politicos  By RUSSELL BRINES  TOKYO, April 18.—(ZP)—Premier 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 cabinet members closest to the premier, announced that Shidehara would become president of the progressive party tomorrow and would consult with Iowiro Nato-yama, president of the liberal party, and Tatsu Katayama, social -democrat leader, regarding a coalition.  Hatoyama, under fire from some elements and under investigation by General MacArthur^ headquarters to determine if he is qualified to occupy the diet seat to which he was elected last week, recently demanded resignation of the Shidehara cabinet. He said he would attempt a coalition among conservative elements with the objective of attaining the premiership for himself.  Both the liberal and progressive parties actually are conservative, as are many in the social-democratic party and so are many of 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.   *-  Read the Ada News Want Ads.

(Continued on Pagk 4 Column 5)  Thousands Stream Into Jerusalem For Easter Ceremonies  By CARTER L. DAVIDSON  JERUSALEM, April 18.—<ZPi-Through streets lined with barbed wire barricades and teaming with armed troops, thousands streamed into this ancient city today to see Christian worshippers recreate with symbolic ceremonies the last hours before Christ was crucified.  An undercurrent of tension prevailed throughout the holy city as Palestine’s |bree-cornered Arab-Jewish-British political controversy was complicated by a country-wide strike of 50,000 civil servants, who are demanding increased pay and better working conditions.  A three-hour walkout in sympathy with the strikers, was set for today by several thousand persons employed in special wartime departments of the Palestine government.  Although so-called terrorist groups have been idle for the past few days, there was no relaxation by authorities, who remained alert against any possible outbreak Arab Legionnaires, with automatic rifles slung over their shoulders, mingled with the colorfully garbed celebrants of the sacred rijes of antiquity.  Easter observance of the western and eastern Christian faiths coincide this year, 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 supper.”  There were virtually no American uniforms to be seen and only occasionally one of the other allies, who formerly had made Jerusalem a popular furlough spot    * -  County’s Pail ta (amar Drive Slow  Total Contributions, Only Third of Goal; Citizens Asked to Taka Fart  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.  As of Thursday morning, the net reported by Louis Long, drive treasurer, was $1,042.39 toward a quota of $3,000.  A magic show recently staged by Rex Morrison, Ada school superintendent clever magician and also county cancer fund drive chairman, attracted an overflow crowd and voluntary contributions totaling $217.54.  Morrison and Long again call attention to the ease with which contributions can be made.  Letters with self-addresses envelopes have gone out to hundreds of Pontotoc county residents, who have only to enclose a check or cash and drop the envelopes in the mail.  Then, others can send or bring contributions to the office of the Retail Merchants Association, third floor of the American Building, where Long has his office.  *-  Read the Ada News Want Ads.  Sets Life At Nine Months  Legislative Defeat Far Truman; Chester Bowles Calls Measure 'Impassible' PRESIDENT SILENT Hopes for Bettor Results In Senate; Bill Would Wreck Price Control—Porter  WASHINGTON. April 18—(ZP) —The house voted overwhelmingly 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 worst legislative defeats since he entered the White House a year ago.  The roll-call vote on passage was 355 to 42.  The house, meeting at IO a m. (EST) two hours earlier than usual, tossed the amendment-ridden bill over to the senate, where the White House said today that President Truman hopes for “much better results.”  Asked at a news conference if the city executive had any comment on the house amendments. Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told reporters:  “Not for print.”  Truman Depends On Senate  Asked if the president was going • to “do anything about it?” Ross replied:  “He hopes for much better results in the senate.” He did not elaborate.  A bloc of democrats, chiefly from the south, combined with republicans yesterday to so amend the bill with amendments that Chester Bowles, economic stabilizer, said the house had started “a joy ride toward enono-nile disaster.”  Earlier, the house refused on a 370 to 20 roll call vote to shelve the continuation bill, rejecting a motion by Rep. Rankin (D-Miss) to send it back to the banking committee.  Sabath Says OFA “Murdered”  Before the final vote was taken, Rep. Sabath (D-Ill), 80-year old dean of the house, shouted to his colleagues:  “You have murdered OPA’” OPA Chief Porter estimated that if the gpgency collapses because of congressional amendments, consumer prices might skyrocket as much as 50 per cent over present levels,  On final passage by the house, 205 democrats, 148 republicans and two minor party members voted for the bill. Opposing were 33 republicans and nine democrats.  Terms “Impossible”, Says Bowles  Bowles termed the measure “impossible” after a 35-minute conference with the president Asked by White House reporters if he would resign in the event it passes both houses in its 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 president, he told reporters ho couldn’t say.  “We want price control,” he declared. “Price control would be impossible as the bill stands now.”  Mon Arrested Wasn't J. D. Johnson, Trucker  J. D. Johnson, who operates a  trucking business in Ada and lives at 1004 West Fourteenth, would like for the public to know he is not the J. D. Johnson who was reported as having been arrested by police. The person arrested lives in a different part of town and is not related to the trucker, he says.   *-  Greater returns for amount Invested—Ada News Classified Ad*  Bf Bota Bunks.
