Drive to Provide Homes Is Delayed Stalls Without Hope Of Action for 12 Days WASHINGTON, April 19, The administration's drive, to provide new homes this year and next stalled on dead center today without hope of ac- tion for at least 12 days. Frantic efforts to work out a last minute compromise of sen- ate-house differences before rep- resentatives began their Easter recess failed despite two sessions yesterday in the capital offices of Majority Leader Barkley (D- Barkley finally told the senate it was "most unfortunate" that the veterans housing measure had not been cleared. The senate passed the emer- gency housing measure on April 10, writing into it two provisions the house had omitted. One calls for in subsidies to break bottlenecks in construction materials, the other guarantees manufacturers a market for up to prefabricated houses. "House conferees were unwill- ing to take anything dealing with subsidies back Senator Capehart (R-Ind.) told a report-. Grand Jury Takes Recess to June 3 Returns Six Indictments, Makes Recommendations For Some County, City Officials, Has More Investigating To Do A grand, jury in Pontotoc county was impanelled April 15, worked four days and as a result of the work six indict- ments have been returned.

May Postpone Spanish Worry U. N. Council May Adopt Compromise Suggestion For Investigation By MAX HAREELSON NEW YORK, April A compromise proposal by Aus- tralia gained support among dele- gates of the United Nations secur- ity council today as a possible solution to the controversial Spanish question. The proposal, submitted by Australian Delegate W. R. Hodg- son shortly before the council ad- journed, yesterday for the Easter holidays, calls for the appoint- ment of a five-man sub-comrr.it- tee which would investigate the Spanish situation and report back by May 17. Most of the delegates were re- luctant to commit themselves on the Australian suggestion imme- diately, but they generally ex- pressed interest and it was con- ceded by some to have a good chance of being approved. Iranian Case Again Before the council resumes its discussions of. the Spanish ques- tion, however, it will tackle again the Iranian case; which was in- terrupted Tuesday after Secre- tary .Trygye Lie submitted a sur- prise opinion that there was some doubt as to whether the Iranian case could legally be kept on the agenda. This will be the first thing on the council's calendar when it re- convenes at 3 p.m., eastern stan- dard time, Tuesday. The way was opened for a new floor fight on the Iranian question when the council's committee of experts on rules and procedure reported last night that it had split, 8 to 3, with the majority holding that the council has full authority to keep a case on the agenda as long as it thinks neces- sary. Back To Spain Next Week The council, which previously had been divided eight to three on the question of keeping juris- diction -of the case, was expected to accept the opinion of the ma- jority and then vote to keep the [uestion on the agenda until May the date on which the Russians have promised to have all Red army troops out of Iran. The council was expected to come back to the Spanish case by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. It was generally agreed that the Polish proposal for a worldwide rupture of diplomatic relations with the Franco regime had little chance of success, if brought to a vote now. An investigation of the county jail was made and it was report- ed to be in first class condition in addition to being well-kept. They found the city jail in poor condition, unclean and unsani- I lary, but they received the as- i surance of the present chief of police that the condition at the city jail will be remedied in the immediate future. Some Made As to wilful and corruot mis- conduct in office of public offi- cials of every description of the county anrf subdivision, the grand jury didn't make a report to the court on the result of its findings. Certain recommendations have i been made to the county attor- ney, county sheriff, board of county commissioners, county clerk and two justices of the peace. The grand jury expresses a confidence that recommenda- tions will be followed. Suggcsions For City Officials In connection with the recom- mendations, the grand jury ad- vised the city mayor and com- missioner-tlect and offered addi- tional recommendations. In a partial report of the grand jury, the group offered thanks and appreciation to the Minis- erial Alliance of Ada for their assistance and their cooperation in connection with the work of the grand jury, in addition to giv- ing particular thanks and words of appreciation to the present president and secretary of the al- liance. The grand jury further report- ed that it has several important matters under investigation at the present time and remaining work will be done.' Teacher Makes Play Out of'Tables' Tulsa Instructor Has Youngsters Eager to Get At Multiplication TULSA, Okla.. April 19, The anonymous, pioneer who ilrst added orange juice to castor oil had a rival for school children's approbation today in Mi's. Sue Puckitt, who sweetened the multiplication table.

May Plat and Sell Ex-Golf Course OKLAHOMA CITY, April plan to plat and sell the Edgemere gold course here for home sites instead of in a tract, as now set for May 7, was ad- vanced today by Secretary of State Frank Carter. Carter, who also is a member of the school land commission, said platting of the land into ap- proximately 280 lots selling for each would give the state a return of nearly con- siderably above the ap- praisal of the single tract.

Arsenic Poisoning Hits German PW's Mysterious Ailment Has Men in American Internment Camp III By RICHARD O'REGAN FRANKFURT, April A mysterious arsenic poisoning has struck down German prisoners of war in an American internment camp near Nuernberg during the last 24 U. S. army headquarters announced to- night. All the victims are "seriously headquarters said. No deaths were reported. The prisoners were seized with arsenic poisoning in Stalag 13 near Nuernberg, the announce- ment said. Early reports from the camp showed that bread containing ar- senic had been found and was be- lieved to be the cause. Headquarters said the bread for the prisoners, "in accordance with normal had been se- cured from a local German bak- ery by contract. Counter-intelligence agents of the.U. S. army went to work im- mediately to determine whether any of the bread had fallen into the hands of German civilians. Headquarters said the counter- intelligence corps, together with agents of the U. S. army theater provost marshal, had started an investigation in an attempt to find out how the poison got into the bread. -------------K------------- Phillips Releases S.

'The bill now goes to the White House. President Truman Buys First Buddy Poppy Four-year-old Betty Lou Hall shyly kisses President Truman at the White House in Washington, after selling him the first Buddy Poppy of the 1346 Buddy Poppy Sale. Betty Lou is the daughter of a deceased ex-serviceman. She came to Washington from Eaton Rapids, Michigan, where she and her three sisters and a brother are living at the VFW Home for Widows and Orphans. Her father, the late Arthur Alvin Hall, was killed in action in the ETO during More Political Row Shapes Up in Japan Decision to Send Food to Japan Brings Another Protest From British-Russian Council Members on MacArthur Policy WASHINGTON, April A first-class political row appears today to be shaping up between Gen. Douglas MacArthur's command and the--two inter-Allied agencies dealing with Japanese policy and administration. In. Washington, a committee of the Far Eastern commis- sion, 11-nation policy-making agency, scheduled a meeting to discuss the recent United States decision to send more than half a million tons of food to Japan during the first six months of this year. And in Tokyo, the four-nation Crisis Worse Than Expected, Truman Says ol Food Need WASHINGTON, April 19, The urgent need for quick Ameri- can-Canadian agreement on an accelerated famine relief program WHS under scored today by Presi- dent Truman's statement that the global food crisis is "worse than it has been The accord, expected to be reached before nightfall, calls for the two nations to reduce home use of wheat and wheat products by the same percentage to in- crease and speed up shipments to needy nations overseas. If it comes, the agreement will be followed shortly by an order from Secretary of Agriculture Anderson cutting domestic dis- tribution of flour 25 per cent for the duration of the current world food emergency. advisory council, whose Russian and British members have voic- ed objections to certain tactics of MacArthur and some of his'of- ficers, adjourney until April 30 without agreeing whether Mac- Arthur should present requested information in writing or by sending a spokesman lo deliver it orally. Second Question On Policies When New Zealand, Indian and Philippine members of the far eastern commission expressed some concern at a meeting yes- terday over American intentions at MacArthur's request to send food to Japan, it marked the second time that body had ques- tioned policies of the supreme commander Previously, the commission ex- pressed "apprehension" over the plan to hold Japanese national elections April 10, and asked MacArthur if he would consider postponing them. All Very Polite To date, however, the commis- sion's questioning has been couched in the most polite terms and members have bent over _, backward to emphasize that their Mr. Truman dwell on the grave concern over Japanese issues did character of the food. situation not imply of MacAr- yesterday when he spoke to near- ly 300 members of the American society of newspaper editors in an pff-the-record situation at the .White House. Later his com- ments on food were authorized for publication. One of the editors inquired whether the situation was an black as painted, Press Secretary Charles G. Ross reported, Mr. Truman replied with his worse- than-painted description. The president told the editors h2 thought much had been ac- complished in this country by the voluntary food conservation drive launched in mid-March, but he said he was unable to give an' exact estimate of its success to date. Mr. Truman spoke of the criti- cal food situations in India and the Philippines, and also said that some of the worst starva- tion areas were in Japan and Germany. The president will have more to say on the food crisis tonight in a worldwide radio program (6 p. m. CST) which also will- bring a message from ex-Presi- dent Herbert Hoover, now in Egypt on his famine survey tour. Secretary of Agriculture Ander- son and UNRRA Director Gener- al Fiorelio La Guardia likewise will be heard in the half-hour broadcast. OKLAHOMA STRAWBERRY PRODUCTION HIGH IN 1346 OKLAHOMA CITY, April strawberry pro- duction, based on April 1, esti- mates, will be 33 per cent above the 1945 yield and about 25 per cent above the ten-year average, federal agricultural Statistician K. B. Blood said today.. The 1946 strawberry yield is estimated at -crates. thur. In bringing up the food matter yesterday, for example, Sir Carl Berendsen of New Zealand said he wanted to make it "perfectly clear that I am making no crit- icism and no protest." He added, however, that when commission members visited Japan in January, the Japanese were not short of they were he said the occupation authorities had told them the Japanese were actually eating more food than before the war. No Priority Being: Given Sir Carl concluded by saying that if. any preference were to be shown to Japan, "or any other axis power'1 in the present food crisis, he yvould take no part in such a policy and he thought the commission as a whole should re- ject it also. American officials, who asked anonymity, emphasized that no food priority is being given to Japan and that the food is being shipped only to prevent unrest and possible danger lo American occupalion forces from oulbreaks of violenci. Although Berendsen's remarks and those of other commission members included warm praise for MacArthur's administration to date, there was little doubt that they reflected a slow growth of on the part of smaller the go-it-along way in which the United Stjtes through MacAr- thur is tq adminiser Japan. AUSTIN. Tex., April Independent oil pro- ducers at the railroad commission hearing today threatened to fight OPA oil controls with every 1 power at their command. Administration Hopeful For OPA in Senate But Leaders Realize Houtt Must Be Considered In Compromise Measure WASHINGTON, April chiefs express- ed confidence today that the son- ate will treat OPA far more Renl- ly than the house did, but trouble was stacking up for them just the same. Their guarded optimism was tempered by (ho fact that even if the senate rolls up a thumping majority for continued price con- trol without major changes, its decision will have to be compro- mised with the contrary action of the house on many key provi- sions. Porter Assails House Bill OPA Chief Paul Porter claims the bill the house passed yester- dny will require the elimination immediately after July 1 of prico ceilings on at least 50 per cent of all commodities which make up the cost of. living. On this list the price chief placed such foods as meat, milk and all other dairy products ex- cept butter. High on it, too, wore coal, shoes, rayon and woolen textiles and many clothing items made from these fabrics. Porter, in a statement last night, said also that the house bill would "blow sky-high" the ceil- ings on automobiles, radios, re- frigerators and most household appliances. Optimism Is Cautious Keynote of the administration's cautious optimism in the midst of these inflation predictions was sounded by Chairman Wagner (D-NY) of the senate banking committee. "1 am Wagner told re- porters, "that my coimnittcc will come out with a very sensible bill. 1 think the senate will bo reflective, thoughtful of the con- sequences." Wagner's committee is consid- ering a bill which as it stands would extend price controls a year beyond June 30 without change. This contrasts with the house action in voting a nine months extension minus food subsidies and with sections requiring ceil- ing prices that will guarantee "reasonable profit" to all manu- facturers and distributors on every item handled. Fine Weather For Easter's Finery By Tha Aisoclofod Prcfl There is no liklihood of show- ers to spoil Easter finery, tha weather bureau said today. Continued bright, warm weath- er extending through the week- end is in prospect with no rain- fall due before Monday or Tues- day.

A number of departing law- makers intimated they are not exactly sure whether they voted right on these two burning issues but that they hope to find out when they got back among the "grass roots" of their home dis- trict. The OPA and draft measures were Ihe last major items to pass the house before it quit until April 30. It voted to extend both for another nine months, but with sweeping restrictions.
