Icelandic interests alone dom- inate in such matters. There- fore the government could not do the United States re- quested." Leaders of other political par- ties, speaking on the same broad- cast, declared themselves in agre- ment with the prime minister's statements, emphasizing Iceland's desire to join the United Nations with well as privileges.

Filings of Two Men Are Challenged Roy Turner and H. C. Jones Charge 'Shadow Filings' Among Rivals OKLAHOMA CITY, April 27. of John Bunyan Turner, Broken Bow, and Cdrna D. Jones, Oklahoma City, in the Democratic race for governor were challenged today and the state election board ordered a hearing at 10 a.m. May 14. J. W. Cprdell, secretary of the board, said any other protests filed would be heard on the same date. Protest against Turner's filing was made by Roy J. Turner, Oklahoma City oil man and rancher, a major contender, who asked that the name oJi John Bunyan Turner be stricken on the grounds that the filing was frivolous, fraudulent and not made in good faith and intended to confuse.the voters because of the similar last names. H. C. Jones, who resigned as collector of internal revenue to become a candidate for governor, challenged the filing of Corna D. Jones on approximately the same grounds. Both of the protesting candi- dates cited provision -of the statute requiring notice to the election board when a candidate intends to file for office and the name is similar to that of an- other candidate. Both alleged the names of the candidates challenged constituted shadow filings. They alleged neither John Bunyan Turner nor Corna D. Jones gave the prelim- inary notice required. 15 days be- fore the opening of the filing period. When he first announced for governor, John Bunyan Turner declared his filing was not friv- olous and that he would resist any effort to take his name from the ballot. Read the Ada News Want Ads. Tel Aviv Held Responsible For Seven Soldiers Deaths GOP Working On OPA Plan Leaders Put Emphasis On Saving Necessary Controls On Moderate Basis WASHINGTON, April Taft (R-Ohio) and Austin (R-Vt) took the lead to- day in organizing senate republi- cans to support what they termed a "moderate" program of extend- ing price controls. Taft, chairman of the minority steering committee, told a report- er the republicans hope to enlist enough democratic backing to beat off what he called "irres- ponsible last minute amend- ments" and put over a planned- in-adyance program which would curtail some OPA authority but retain major anti-inflation con- trols. Austin declared in a separate interview that he and senators of like views "want to save the ne- cessary controls but to provide for relaxation of those controls as fast as the war-to-peace time- table will permit." Taft said republican members of the banking committee will try to get together on the draft of a program early next week. As outlined tentatively by Taft, the projected republican program would revise a house-approved "cost plus" amendment to pro- vide that OPA must fix price ceil- ings which would give manufac- turers a margin over cost on ma- jor items similar to that in a cer- tain prewar period. If there was no prewar margin, there would be none now. The house provided that manufacturers and distribu- tors must have a "reasonable profit" on all items. T a f': said most republicans agree that the OPA's maximum average price order, by which it requires production of a certain proportion of low cost must go. OPA officials have charged this would increase clothing prices 10 per cent.

The ministers of the United States, Britain, France and Rus- sia reached an accord on broad general proportions of the divi- sion in a three-hour meeting in which Russia retreated from a previous demand for a third of the fleet, these reports said. Precise details were not set- tled at the meeting, the third thus far in the historic'conference and said to have been the most cheerful to date. Two Issues Sidestepped JJart of the session was given over to a discussion of the French-Italian frontier modifica- tljns, but no agreement was reached on any of the proposals. The troublesome Trieste and Ita- lian colonial questions had been sidestepped. Coupled with the announce- ment in Rome that Russia had not only acceded to the United States proposals for relaxing Ita- lian armistice terms, but had pro- posed even further modifications, the Soviet action augured well for future dealings on the Italian problem.

CARPENTER WASHINGTON, April 27, Australia's peppery delegate, Lt. Col. William R. Hodgson, an- nounced late, today he .vas with- drawing from the United Nations security council because of the illness in Paris of his wife and that his successor at the council table would carry on his policies without any change. Hodgson, the prime mover for a unanimous solution of the Span- ish deadlock in the council and lom a proponent of full docu- mentation on every case before the council, said he would leave by plane for Paris Monday morn- ing. In a statement announcing his impending departure, Col. Hodg- son said the Iran and Spanish questions had delayed hi srclurn to his ill wife, Mrs. Murial Hodg- son. The Australian's announcement was made as Mexico took the lead in seeking a solution of the Spanish crisis in the but every move ran against the stern Russian opposition to any investigation of Franco Spain. The council has shelved the Iranian case at least until May 6, with Russia on record as boy- cotting any further discussion of that matter. In the Spanish case, Hodgson has proposed that a sub- committee of five members of the council study the evidence submitted, make such inquiries as it desires and report back to the council for what ever action the council desires to take. Serious Shortage 01 Meal in Many Oklahoma Cities OKLAHOMA CITY, April 27. survey of 27 Okla- homa cities disclosing n serious meat shortage today wns made the basis of nn appeal from the Oklahoma Retail Grocers Asso- ciation urging Gov. Robert S. Korr to oppose federal control of livestock and meat. In a letter signed by Don W.

"This condition exists in spite of the fact that we have in tne state more cattle population to- day than we had in the fl-year average from 1941 through 194V he declared in the letter to Kerr. "The supplies are adequate and in a short time removal of price controls would straighten out the meat industry. It is our consid- ered opinion that this is the only thing that will straighten it out." Kerr is now in the east. Injured Rancher Crawls 18 Hours RAPID CITY, S.
