THE ADA EVENING NEWS Net March Paid Circulation 8078 Member: Audit Duron u of Circulation 43rd 8 ADA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY Ask Higher Price, Reduction Of Subsidies on Three Metals Government Plans To Re-Enter Butter Market About May 1 High Demand, Low Pro- duction Make Civilian Out- look for Next Winter Dull By OVID MARTIN WASHINGTON, April government plans to re- enter the butter market about May 1 to buy pounds to supply the armed services and military hospitals during the next 12 months. To assure itself of this quan- tity, the government probably require manufacturers to set aside a portion of their output during May and June. Last summer it purchased pounds under a set-aside order, but later turned pounds back to civilian markets when supplies became very scarce. In May-June Period Government buying for the year ahead will be concentrated in the May-June period when butter production normally reaches its peak for the year. By obtaining a year's needs in this period, the government thus el- iminating itself as a competitor with civilians during low produc- tion periods. But despite the government's plan to secure military needs during the flush production sea- son, the outlook for civilian sup- plies of butter next fall and win- ter are not bright. In the first place, total produc- tion is expected to fall below last year's level and below pre-war output. No Reserve In Sight In the second place, consumer demand is at record levels. Be- cause of this, it is quite likely that the great bulk, if not all, o'f '.he production of the heavy pro- duction season May through be consumed as rapid- ly as it is produced. If this happens, none from the flush season's output would be re-served for consumption next fall and winter, when production is expected to be far short of de- mands. During the war, rationing lim- ited consumption during the flush production season, and some of the spring and summer output was forced into storage lor sale later. No Inducement For Storage In normal times, the butter in- dustry itself stores a part of the summer output for sale during the fall and winter season of low production. There is an incentive tt> do this, because prices usually r.rc lowest during the peak pro- duction season and highest dur- ing the fall and winter. Under the government's price control program, there is no fi- nancial inducement to store for the future. Price ceilings arc the same the year around.

GREEN WASHINGTON, April news for motorists: the r'ibber industry bids fair to sur- pass its towering production goal of new passenger tires this year. Civilian production officials made this encouraging forecast today, saying the record output drive is being helped by new cotton yarn controls protecting lire corJ supplies. The industry's goal is tires more than the estimated passenger casings- pro- C .ced in the previous banner year of 1941. Despite the present bright out- look, however, CPA officials cautioned motorists that retail dealers probably will continue to run a week or two behind on tire deliveries throughout the sum- mer, catching up with day-to-day demand only in the final quarter of the year. As advice to intending vaca- tioners, one CPA spokesman of- fered: "Put yourself on a dealer's list in plenty of time, expect de- livery in 10 days to two weeks, have one of the old tires recapped for a spare." Far in the forefront of recon- version, tire manufacturers so far this year have eclipsed 1941's peak production rate but are crowding the limit of their ma- terials supply. Filing (or County Offices Slackens Sharply Third Day Joe Beck, chairman of the county election board, was kept busy during the first couple, of days that the filing period was open this week, but business has slacked off with only two men filing for offices Wednesday morning.

Mining Congress Says Subsidies Had Wrong Effect Sen. Mitchell Criticizes NAM for Spending So Much In Anti-OPA Campaign WASHINGTON, April United States chamber of commerce today called for an end to all price and rent controls by March 31, 1947. The recommendation was made in a statement prepared for the senate banking committee by Emerson P. Schmidt, the cham- ber's director of economic re- search. He said the directors of the chamber advocated lifting price controls, with the exception of rent, by Oct. 31. The rent regu- lations should be removed by next March 31, he added. WASHINGTON, April American. Mining congress today urged increased ceiling prices on zinc, lead and copper. Julian D. Conover, secretary of the organization, told the senate banking committee that prices should be increased and federal subsidies reduced. The committee is considering legislation to ex- tend price controls a year beyond June 30. Conover declared that legisla- tion introduced by Senator Mc- Farland (D.-Ariz.) and other western senators, to provide for increased prices and reduced subsidies, should be enacted. This would not raise the ceil- ing prices much, he contended, and would be helpful in increas- ing production badly needed for the construction and other indus- tries. Says Inequities In Subsidies Conover said there are inequi- ties in the payment of subsidies and that although they were in- tended to stimulate production they had developed into "a means of profit control." O. W. Bilharz, president of the Tri-State Zinc and Lead Ore testified, in..support of the subsidy payment plan. His organization includes mines lo- cated where the northeast corner of Oklahoma and the southeast corner of Kansas join with the southwest part of Missouri. Bilharz said the tri-state area was a major source of zinc and an important source of lead in the last two wars. He added it could not continue to be a great source without the subsidies. Mitchell Spanks NAM He added that the association would not object to any modifica- tion of the subsidy payments "so long as its present effectiveness is improved rather than im- paired." Senator Mitchell (D.-Wash.) took the National Association of Manufacturers to task today for spending in its anti-OPA campaign. He called such spend- ing "out of line." Mitchell was one of a group of Democratic senators who tangled with Robert R. Wason, president of the A. A. M., when Wason dis- closed what the association's anti-OPA drive had cost. "The average consumer who wants prices held down couldn't hope to duplicate that Mitchell said to a reporter. Russia Trimming Its Land Use Demands Reduces to Small Fraction Of Original Request What Austria Must Allow WASHINGTON, April 24, United States diplomatic officials reported today that Russia has trimmed its land use demands upon Austria to a small fraction of the acres originally sought. The action came as the after- math of an UNRRA decision at Atlantic City late last month to ban relief aid to any'country whose armies are found to be "Jiving off the land" of countries they occupy at the expense of the local population. The exact extent of Russia's reduced request remains uncer- tain. But one state department official, in close touch with the situation, said privately the So. let union now is limiting its request to such unlillable lands 'as those previously used as German drill fi.lds. This country, now helping to feed the Austrian people as the major contributor to UNRRA, has advocated reduction of oc- cupation forces in that country to hasten restoration of econo- mic stability.

An Associated Press tabulation at p.m. a.m. cst) of returns from precincts out of the voting in Tuesday's election gave: Roxas, president of the senate, built up his lead in Manila, which voted heavily for him.

McNar- riey today ordered a disciplinary crackdown on all American troops in Europe because "dis- cipline in certain localities and commands in this theater has de- teriorated to the point of dis- crediting the fine performance of our troops in general." In orders issued to unit com- manders, the theater commander declared "all commanders and their subordinates must now de- vote themselves to the reestab- lishment of discipline." he said, "becomes their most important immediate func- tion." Gen, McNamey's written order Unit Ties Broken Due to rapid demobilization and frequent changes of station of units and assignments of en- listed men and officers, firm ties of unit pride have been weaken- ed. The traditional constant con- cern of officers for the welfare of their men and consequent mu- tual loyalties have been difficult to maintain during this transition period. Team-work often has been forgotten. "Consequently discipline in certain localities and commands in this theater has deteriorated to a point of discrediting the fine performance of our troops in gen- eral. Where Troops Fall Short "Indications of this state can be found in: "a. Participation in .black mar- ket activities and in indulgence in drunkenness. "b. A high absent without leave rate and an excessive incidence of other disciplinary infractions. "c. High automobile accident rate. "d. Excessive venereal disease rate. "e.

Cheering Item For Ministers Commission on Italian-Yu- goslav Border in Agreement As Big Four Ministers Gather PARIS, April 24, unani- mous fact-finding report by a four-powe. commission which visited the disputed Italian-Yug- oslav border area was authori- tatively forecast today as one bright spot in the somewhat glo- omy picture shaping up for the Big Four foreign ministers' con- ference which convenes here to- morrow. One member of the Big Four commission representing Brit- ain, France, Russia and the Unit- ed the group's re- port should be finished for sub- mission to the foreign ministers by this weekend. He predicted lhat despite disagreements on where the boundary should be, r.ussians and westerners alike would be able to agree on econo- mic and ethnic facts involved. The deputy foreign ministers, charged with preliminary work on the peace treaties, were scheduled to meet today to fix the exact hour for the first ses- sion of their chiefs tomorrow. Scheduled to participate in the face-to-face conferences called in an effort to iron out numerous international problems were Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin of Britain, Foreign Minister Geor- ges Bidault of France, Foreign Vyacheslav M. Molotov of Russia and Secretary of State James F. Byrnes of the United States. ---------------------K-------------------- OPA Unworried On Claim Men's Suits Shipments lo (ease WASHINGTON, April showed little concern to- day over; the contention of a clothing industry spokesman that a price regulation will halt ship- ments of men's suits after May 1. The spokesman, who declined use of his name, said in New York hist night that suit deliveries will have to stop because OPA has not revised its maximum average price regulation to take into ac- count a change in suit price ceil- ings ordered March 11. Under the average price regu- lation, garment manufacturers are required to turn out their 1943 ratio of high and low-priced clothing. Those who do not com- ply during a quarterly period, and who do not come into com- pliance within the next 30 days, may not make further shipments. An OPA official who asked to remain anonymous said that des- pite revised price ceilings for suits, "there is no reason to be- lieve that many manufacturers will fail to meet requirements" of the "map" order. The official said OPA has ask- ed the industry "some time ago" to submit cost information needed to consider any revision of the or- der. He said this had not been received, but that the agency ex- pected it today. OPA, the official added; will i "act speedily" when it obtains i this information. Charter Revisions C. of C.

Sir Alexander Cadogan, British delegate, also was reported to have received instructions to back the Australian proposal. Mexico and Poland prcviusly had indi- cated they would support the measure, and it was believed Rus- sia and France were ready to go along. Harmony On Spanish Question The other delegates, while re- luctant to commit themselves in advance, were expected to follow the lead of the big powers, which for once seemed to be in agree- ment. It thus appeared that the Span- ish question was finally headed toward a harmonious solution when the council mepts at 3 p.m. (EST) tomorrow. Some delegates predicted there might be a lengthy possibly delaying a vote for an- other there was general agreement that approval of the proposal was assured. Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko fought to the last to push through his resolution to strike the Iranian case from the council's agenda, but in the end he recognized his defeat by as- sociating himself yesterday with a milder resolution offered by French delegate Henri Bonnet The French proposal provided that the case be dropped front the agenda but it had an addition- al provision that the secretary- general report to the general as- sembly on nny new developments on the Iranian question. Bonnet's resolution, however, was defeated when it received only three of the council's 11 votes. It was supported orSy by Russia and Poland.
