Co. to Manufacture, Distribute Insulation Product Over 14 States; Plant to Be Mile North Of Country Club; Related Products to Bo Added Later Announcement of the location in Ada of a 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 thc establishment of your new industry at Ada, we -believe, should be made jointly by the In- dustrial committee of the Cham- ber of Commerce and the Okla- homa Geological Survey as a great deal of assistance was ren- dered us by both W. E. Hyder, president of the Asbestos Manufactur- Insulating company, Standard ing and wrote Harry B. Barndollar, 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 for- mulated to produce a large va- riety of building material and in- sulation products. The first inquiry that was re- ceived by the Geological Survey of which Robert H. Dott is di- rector indicated the possibility that Oklahoma was being con- sidered if a favorable combina- tion of 'raw materials, fuels and transportation could be found. The inquiry was received in No- vember, 1944.

Chinese Regulars May Not Attempt To Save Harbin Port By HAROLD K. MILKS CHUNGKING, April Communists encircling Harbin declared today they in- tended to seize that north Man- churian metropolis, which the government indicated it would not even try to defend. A government spokesman said the situation in central Manchu- ria 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." That would give General Mar- shall, special U. S. envoy to China, only five more days to work out a truce first between the warring factions. Marshall was in almost con- tinuous 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 rest of China outside Manchuria. A government spokes m a n charged that Communist irregu- lars already wore infiltrating Harbin. Ho said the government had no army forces in only civil officials. (Unofficial dispatches reaching Peiping said the officials had fled to Mukden by plane.) He also reported that Com- munist resistance wns stiffening ns the- U.

After two weeks of intensive study and consultation, the board of freeholders elected April 2 to prepare revisions and amend- ments for the Ada city charter is getting to some definite places. Friday night the board had J. D. Willpughby, former mayor and outgoing public works com- missioner; B. H. Frick, John D. Rinard and Mayor Guy Thrash in for discussion.

On Trip Members of the board who went on a trip of investigation Tuesday of last week reported Friday Maines on Duncan, Claud McMillan on El Reno and four on Chickasha. Points are being checked up on such as how El Reno, with to population, a dollar for gallons minimum water rate, collects a year while Ada, larger in population and with minimum of a dollar for gallons, has less than 000 income from the water de- partment. Council-Manager Plan Favored The board has swung definitely to a conviction that the city char- ter needs revision to provide for a council-manager form rather than the three-commissioner form now existing. Under this, each ward is repre- sented on the city council, with one mcmbcr-at-large; this coun- cil, elected by the citizens, em- ploys a city manager who is res- ponsible to the council and is supervised by the council, keep- ing, the freeholder board ex- plains, 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 interest- ed 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.
