Co. lo Manufacture, Distribute Insulation Product Over 14 Stetes; Pleat to Be Mile North Of Country Club; Related Products to Be Added Leter  Announcement of the location in Ads of & rock wool manufacturing plant to be known as The Rock Products Manufacturing company was made Saturday morning. Along with the announcement was word that products from the plant will be distributed to 14 states in the middle west.  “The announcement relative to*-   —-_  the establishment of your  -      new  industry at Ada, we believe, should be made jointly by the Industrial committee of the Chamber of Commerce and the Oklahoma Geological Survey as a great deal of assistance was rendered us by both organizations,” W. E. Ryder, president of the Standard Asbestos Manufacturing and Insulating company, wrote Harry B. Barndoor, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce industrial committee.  Mr. Barndollar said Saturday that the plant would be located one mile north of the Country Club and added that engineers are at work getting ready for the first installation.  One of the principal reasons for the plant being located in Ada is that the Frisco Railroad  company cooperated with Ada citizens and put a low rate on the shipment of raw materials.  Will Start At Once  The initial unit of a rock wool plant at Ada will be established immediately and in addition to rock wool plans have been formulated to produce a large variety of building material and insulation products.  The first inquiry that was received by the Geological Survey of which Robert H. Dott is director indicated the possibility that Oklahoma was being considered if a favorable combination of raw materials, fuels and transportation could be found. The inquiry was received in November, 1944.

MILKS  CHUNGKING, April 20.—(A>j —Chinese Communists encircling Harbin declared today they intended to seize that north Manchurian metropolis, which the government indicated it would not even try to defend.  A government spokesman said the situation in central Manchuria was “very grave*’ now that Communist troops have taken Changchun, the capital, 150 miles southwest of Harbin.  A Communist spokesman warned that the encircling troops would seize Harbin when the Russian army pulls out next Thursday “if a status of civil war still prevails in Manchuria.”  JHiat would give General Marshall, special U. S. envoy to China, only five more days to work out a truce first between toe warring factions.  Marshall was in almost continuous conferences with both government and the Communist officials. He had not scheduled a meeting of his truce committee of three, which earlier this year worked out an armistice for* the lest of China outside Manchuria.  A government spokesman charged that Communist irregulars already were infiltrating Harbin. He said the government had no army forces in Harbin-only civil officials.  (Unofficial dispatches reaching Peiping said the officials had fled to Mukden by plane.)  He also reported that Communist resistance was stiffening as the government’s U. S.-eauiD-ped First army pressed nortR-ward from Szepkmgkai toward C hangchun.  Government and Communist forces finally agreed that the First* army had by-passed Sze-pingkai.

D. Willoughby, former mayor and outgoing public works commissioner; B. H. Frick, John D. Rinard and Mayor Guy Thrash in for discussion.  This week representatives of more local groups will be asked to sit with the board on the deliberations. Also, there will be three meetings — Monday, Wednesday and Friday— instead of the two-a-week schedule that has been followed.  Deport On Trip Members of the board who went on a trip of investigation Tuesday of last week reported Friday night—Tommie Maines on Duncan, Claud McMillan on El Reno and four on Chickasha.  Points are being checked up on such as how El Reno, with 11,000 to 12,000 population, a dollar for 2,000 gallons minimum water rate, collects $111,000 a year while Ada, larger in population and with minimum of a dollar for 3 OOO gallons, has less than $80,-000 income from the water department.  Council-Manager Plan Favored  The board has swung definitely to a conviction that the city charter needs revision to provide for a council-manager form rather than the three-commissioner form now existing.  Under this, each ward is represented on the city council, with one member-at-large; this council, elected by the citizens, employs a city manager who is responsible to the council and is supervised by the council, keeping, the freeholder board explains, control democratic and in the hands of elected officials.  Beginning Monday, April 29, there will be meetings for all of the school buildings at which it is hoped every citizen interested in the city government will be present for explanation of charter revision proposals, feel free to ask questions and discuss fully any or all proposals. Schedule for these meetings will be announced well ahead.  — -lr-  Adams Won*t Run  BARTLESVILLE, Okla., April 20.—(ZP)—W. O.

There will be new hats and other new attire today, and gaily colored bunnies and eggs, but that part of the day become i minor when Ada churchgoers enter toe! into religious services with wor- s bjpf u l hearts and reverent spirit.  For today is Easter, da, symbolic of resurrection of the Christ and of ever-recurring rebirth of hope and joy.  Many Families Reunited And today is the first Easter since the warclouds darkened the skies for the nation in December of 1941; it is the first F ster, too, for many families reunited with return in recent months of husbands, fathers, sons, brothers from distant scenes.  With peace, however tenuous, prevailing around the globe except in Manchuria, hearts turn today to a more glorious peace and a more lasting one.  Services Throughout Day The sunrise service at J ast Central college Rock Garden began for many the day’s observance here. On through the morning, hundreds will make their way to the churches of their choice to take part in services built around the Easter theme, marked especially by Easter music.  In the evening and early night more services, some entirely of song, will mark additional com-memmorative occasions.  The annual pageant in the Wichita mountains near Lawton drew more Adans than for several years.  Easter has brought many ‘homecomings’ of students and others here for the weekend.  For the youngsters, bunnies and colored eggs; for the oldsters more serious thoughts but colored with a joyous recognition of the significance of the day, and for all, the great annual day of jubilation for Christendom once more is here.  *  Four of the six indictments submitted by the grand jury that recessed until June 3 after being in session four days were made public Saturday morning when indictments were filed in district court.

Greater returns for amount Invested—Ada News Classified Ads  By ARTHUR EDSON  WASHINGTON. April 20, (JP> -—lf  on  Easter morning the plight -ast of the hungry millions in Europe and Asia hits you more I rcibly, here’s how the government suggests you can help them.  I. If you’re a house wife— Never throw’ a piece of bread or a teaspoonful of fat away.  Make sure the garbage consists only of bones, eggshells and the inedible parts of fruits and vege tables.  Don’t overeat. •  Never over—serve a guest. Don’t fry meats, poultry, fish, bake, boil or stew them.  Use fresh fruit for dessert, not pastries.   #  Serve homemade salad dressing, vinegar or lemon juice, not rich salad dressing.  Use meat drippings to flavor vegetables dressings sauces.  Store bread in moisture-proof wrapping in refrigerator. This regards mold.  Use dry, leftover bread in toast, puddings and stuffings.  Serve open-faced sandwiches. Or better still, serve a vegetable salad, such as potato or bean, in its place.  Give each person only one small slice of bread at a meal.  Cut out dry cereals as much as possible. Use potatoes (a fine breakfast dish) and oatmeal.  2. If you’re a man—  Don’t overeat.  Eat all they serve you at a restaurant.  St a way away from pastries. Order fruit instead.  Plant a vegetable garden.  Be a one-man information bureau. Spread the word around that the W'orld food situation is critical and will remain that way for at least three months.  3. Every body—  Cut down on waste. Tile department of agriculture estimates that one slice of bread in every loaf is wasted. This alone w'ould give 2.500.000 people in Europe three-fourths of a pound of bread a day.  Remember that people are starving, that many will die unless help comes soon.  And remember that help can only come from you.  The suggestions come from government food officials questioned on what the individual can do to help in the areas where Easter will be just another day of hunger.  Food Vital, Says General  No Other Element os Important in Preserving Peace Of World—Eisenhower  DENISON, Tex., April 20.—(JP) —-Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower visited his birthplace today, and told the crowd gathered to greet him that “no element is as important in preserving the peace of the world as food.”  “This land of America has responsibilities it can’t dodge. It is the breadbasket of the world” the general said in a brief address which followed a military parade.  The parade, led by the general and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn, moved through Denison’s main business section past cheering thousands shortly after General Ike had paid a visit to the house where he was born. Oct. I % 1890.  There, he stepped inside the door to find Miss Jennie Jackson with her arms outstretched. Miss Jenrne, 74, is a retired school teacher who remembers bouncing General Ike on her knee more than half a century ago.  At a press conference held at his birthplace, the general said “there is not nearly as much of the so-called caste system in the armv as some people like to think. I believe you can talk to any given number of men in the army and you will find much less anxiety about the alleged caste system than some people w’ould have you believe.”  Two Men bi Wagon  Injured, Driver Of (ar Vanishes  James Sanders, 29, and Ode Sanders, 32, both of Route 4, Ada, were taken to a local hospital Friday night following an accident at Sandy bridge, west of Ada.  The two men w'ere in a wagon traveling east and had just crossed Sandy bridge when the wagon was struck from behind by a 1935 Ford.  Highway Patrolman Haywood Bailey investigated the accident and reported that it happened about 7:15 p.m. Friday about 40 feet east of the bridge.  The trooper is still looking for the driver of the car who had left the scene of the accident before patrolmen arrived. Driver’s licenses issued to Winfred Kelley in Shawnee and William L. Kelley in Ardmore were found in the car.  James Sanders is suffering from two broken legs while Ode Sanders is suffering from one broken leg.

Greater returns for amount invested—Ada News Classified Ads  Highway Patrol Is iddiag ll Troopers  OKLAHOMA CITY. April 20.— im «t* Safety Commissioner J. M. Gentry announced today that 14 troopers had been added to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and would start work Monday.  The additions raise the patrol strength to 93 troopers and ll lieutenants and sergeants—a total of 104. Gentry said.  Thirteen of the 14 additions were employed during the war as temporary military replacements and then either entered military service or gave up their trooper jobs to make room for returning men. Those who made way for returning veterans were retained by the patrol in other capacities.  The 14th trooper joined the P^f°l in 1937 and later entered military service.  Gentry said the additions would  make it possible to station three men in cities where only one had operated previously.   #  The celebration came to Russians for the first time nince the Russian revolution more than 20 years ago.  Japanese filed into Christian churches in an atmosphere of peace for the first time since the Sino-Japanese war began nine years ago.  Americans and Europeans today marked the Easter holiday in complete peace for the first time since 1939.  Some Tension In Jerusalem  In Jerusalem the coinciding eastern and western feats filled churches to overflowing, d ... ite the air of tension caused b recent riots and the continuing strike of 50,000 civil we.*! ere.  The annual passover of th# Jews and the religious observances of Moslems contributed to the religious atmosphere in the city.  German priests and ministers preached sermons and conducted services, free from the shadow of Hitler’s gestapo.  Hundreds of thousand if Russians filled churches in Moscow as church bells called the faithful to worship. Churchm.n said the celebration was reminiscent of the age-old Russian Eastern ritual.  In Japan American and Japanese Christians stood side by side at sunrise services in Tokyo’s Meiji stadium. Radio Tokyo broadcast Roman Catholic services.  From Vatican City, Pop# rius XII called on leaders to be courageous and to fight “godless” political theories. He listed “divorce, goodless schools and unbridled books and licentious entertainment” as threats to Christian morality.  Doable Celebration In England  England had double cause for celebration. The 20th birthday of Princess Elizabeth fell on Easter and Windsor Castle had its largest house party since 1938, with all members of the royal family who were in the count v and several young friends of tho princess in attendance.  Americans across the country held their services from sunrise through mid-day in many settings—from cathedrals and mountain tops to simple churches.  Sixteen states were represented at services in the amphitheater of Arlington national cemetery in Washington. More than 100,-000 persons watched a sunrise pageant with a cast of 1,000 in the Holy City of the Wichita mountains. 15 miles northwest of Lawton, Okla.  #   ———-0—   .
