Red Fighter Planes Buzz Clark's B-17 Gen. Clark Hot Aboard But Makes Third Protest About Russian Fliers VIENNA, April Russian fighters buzzed the per- sonal plane of Gen. Mark W. Clark today as it was being flown from Vienna to Linz by Brig. Gen. Ralph A. Snavcly. commander of the U.S.F.A., Air division. This was the third incident in- volving Soviet fighters and Am- c.jca.i planes in 10 days. Clark was not aboard his plane, a B-17 flying fortress. He made his third protest against the Rus- sian activities when he learned of today's attack. The Russian fighters made speed runs toward the B-17 sev- eral tirrTcs, but fired no shots such as marked the action involv- ing ,wo U. S. transport planes previously. The radioman aboard the B-17 reported the details as the plane continued its flight. The B-17 left the airport out- side Vienna at a.m., and was flying over St. Pollen about 25 minutes later when the. Soviet planes approached. Col. Howard Moore of Farmers- burg, Ind., was co-pilot of the B-17, which was described as flying on "A U.S.F.A., mission." Names of the passengers were not released. Marshall Reported Some (loser To Effecting Truce NANKIN G.

He did not meet reporters, but a source close to him said that negotiations on the Manchurian situation were proceeding in an optimistic a t m o s p h c r e. The source added he would not be surprised to "sec results" within a few days. Meanwhile, talks among Mar- shall, communist Gen. Chou En- lai and government Gen. Hsu Yung Chang temporarily arc sus- pended pending the arrival of Hsu and Chou, expected by Thursday. "Everybody is approaching the problem optimistically." Mar- shall's friend said. "There have been six or seven schemes pro- posed, all of which might work. All are being explored. We arc getting closer and closer to agree- ment."

Tonight, at a similar meet- ing will be held at Hayes school; other meetings will be held Wed- nesday night at Willard Thursday night at Hayes, Saturday night at Philemon Colored Baptist church and next Monday night at Wash- ington school. After explanation of the pro- posed council-manager plan, the freeholders in charge of the program invited, questions from the audience. Among the questions and ex- planations were: Responsibility for Hiring 1! Would the council have any power to recommend whom the manager is to- hire? No. Em- ployment would be based on competency. But an incompetent workman can be gotten rid of. Complaints to manager or coun- cil members can get results; and if a man proves reliable and capable, he doesn't have to wor- ry about election changes. The manager is responsible directly to the council for efficiency of department heads and personnel under them. 2. Why shouldn't the council -._.......0. members be paid? Experience He immediately conferred with ol many communities has prov- Cor.sul-General Monnett Davis eft tnis most effective, Dozens oli citizens here give, each week, more of their time without pay to church, civic and P-TA work, for instance, than council mem- bers would have to give, 'and where it has been tried, there has been no lack of citizens equally willing to give some time to the affairs of a city. Why Not Elect Mayor? 3. Why shouldn't the mayor be elected by the voters, not by the council? Because in the council- manager plan, the mayor does not have a full-time job as under the existing charter; he is to pre- side at council meetings, sign bonds and other documents as re- quired under state laws; a r. J serve as contact man between manager and council. 4. Would the revised charter change :the water rate-.and call for holding of bond elections? No. Under state law the charter would not- do either. But the proposed charter does place more its 12-day Easter ended today. recess which Hoover Reaches Shanghai SHANGHAI, April Tired from his round the world study of the food situation, Her- bert Hoover arrived today by plane from Manila.

Trieste Area Is Discussed Italian-Yugoslav Frontier Taken Up; Byrnes Offers Four-Power Military Pact By FLORA LEWIS PARIS, April foreign ministers conference de- cided to devote its entire session today to a discussion of Trieste and the Italian-Yugoslav frontier [uestions after receiving from U. J. Secretary of State Byrnes a proposal for a four-power mutual assistance pact to keep the peace in Germany for at least a quar- ter of a century. The ministers of Britain, Rus- sia, Francejand the United States received copies of a bcunclary commission report on Venezia Giulia, one of the most difficult problems of the conference. No details of the report were made public, but it was believed to contain both majority and mi- nority opinions. Previous reports of a virtual accord on the fron- tier issue apparently were not borne out. Would Pledge U. S. Power Byrnes' proposal would pledge American military might to keep the peace in Germany for at least 25 years as part of a long-term United States foreign policy. The hitherto secret United States proposal, which would combine the military forces of the United States, Russia, Britain and France to assure a perman- ent German disarmament, was made public by Byrnes at a press conference last night' following a five-hour session of the foreign ministers conference. The secretary of state also dis- closed he had drafted a similar pact to keep 'United States and other allied forces on the alert against a revival of militarism in Japan, but declined.to reveal de- tails of this proposal. Byrnes says Premier Stalin had supported the idea for the four- power treaty on Germany when the two discussed the matter in Moscow last Christmas. How- ever, Vyacheslav Molotov; Rus- sian foreign minister, yesterday opposed placing the matter on the conference agenda in connection with general discussion on Ger- many. France and Britain have ac- cepted the proposal in principle Byrnes said, and Russia has ex- pressed willingness to discuss it, although without setting a defi- nite time. Whether the treaty draft will be placed on the agenda remain- ed unsettled when 'Byrnes asked for adjournment of the confer- ence last night. Boylen Is Named Rodeo Chief His Job Will Be to Put Rodeo Sport on Highest Plane Possible Ada Mill May Close Late In This Week Faces Gap in Supply Of Wheat Until Government Agency Purchases Move The Ada Milling company may have to close down the latter part of the week, according to Bob Calvert of the mill. Harry Lund gaard, the manager, is out of the city. Mr. Calvert .explains the situa- tion thus. The.Commodity Credit Corporation a govern- ment agency, is buying all the wheat. It will be sold to the mills and the government v.'ill buy the flour to be shipped broad. Flour mills are permitted to make 75 percent as much flour for domestic consumption they made last year provided they can get the wheat. But with the government buying the wheat, there is little chance for the mills to get wheat until the new crop comes on in June. Other mills in the state are affected in the same manner, and some of them have already closed. The Ada mill has enough wheat to run until Friday, but 'unless the government wheat is shipped in before that time, it will close then. .It is not likely that the government wheat can be mov- ing that soon, Mr. Calvert thinks.- The mill also' makes and sells feed., but much of the feed is a by-product of wheat manufac- ture. Unable to get corn, the feed operations will have to'close also. Operations will begin as soon as government wheat is available or when the new wheat crop.Ie- comes available. Local Packing Plant Trying To Stay Open Wickham's Can't Get Enough Cattle, Allowable Hog Slaughter Not Enough The Wickham Packing'' comp- any is trying to stay open, but most of the operations will have to close within a few days un- less some relief is found, said Dyle Carman, manager, .Tuesday morning. Mr. Carman explains that under the quota system, this plant is permitted to kill as many cattle as it killed in 1944 and 80 percent as many hogs. It is unable to buy cattle in any appreciable numbers, for the reason that the black market is absorbing the cattle at a higher price, than the packing plant can pay under the OPA ceiling price structure. Even if it violated the CTA ruling and paid more than is per- mitted for the cattle, it could not sell under the OPA ceiling and break even. Not being willing to violate the law, Mr. Carman says he sees no way out but to close most of the activity. The local plant had a short hog run in 1944, and the quota for May of this year is for onl about :00 head a week, and tlV average killing is from 100 to 15 a day. So the hog slaughter wil not permit the plant to run. Mr. Carman says they inleni to keep the plant open and do ing all it can. He wonts to keep his skilled help nnd sales ovanl zation together. It is a dark pic ture, but the plant managemen is doing all it can to serve the 50( customers it has in this part o the state.

Safety Is Provided The weight and dimension re- strictions are set by rules and certain types of wheels and brakes are likewise specified, the main purpose of these restrictions being to assure 'maximum safety for drivers and onlookers as well as to place all boys on an equal fooling. No car may cost more than to build and no adult may assist in its construction, except by ad- vising the youngster who is con- structing his own car. In addition to the local champ, who will be awarded the trip to Akron, Chevrolet supplies a spe- safeguard around handling city funds. 5. What about the financial system and budgeting control and chance of getting more millage for the city? The manager is re- sponsible for preparation of re- ports and budgets with an op- portunity to so present the city'T needs' to the excise board as to show more conclusively the .city's need for more than 1 mill of the present 15 mill city-county-school district limit.

Valley View Will Replace Flooring Durable Type to Be In- stalled; Facilities for Pa- tients Limited During Work Valley View hospital's halls have of late been showing wear from the constant foot traffic up and down them, of nurses, patients, doctors for almost ten years. Starting Monday, the hospital authorities will have work under way to provide new flooring, of a more durable type, The work will be done by wings and sections, so that a part of the hospital facilities will be out of use at a timo. Even this, however, will reduco the number of beds available while the work is going on, and will limit the number of patients who can be cared for. The new flooring will have a poured concrete base covered with asphalt tile. Work will be moved along as rapidly as possible so that as soon as possible the hospital will be ready for full-scale accomo- dations again.

And an official of the agency told a reporter privately that housewives soon may pay more for white bread and other kinds Bakers, the official said, are seeking an increase of a cent .1 one-pound loaf on other than rye bread. He added that "some in- crease looks likely." The rye bread hike of two cents, effective immediately, pushes retail prices to 11 and 12 cents for most one-pound loaves, OPA said. It will remain in ef- fect at least until June 30 when the agency will re-examine bak- ers' costs to determine whether the higher ceilings should be con- tinued. Explaining the increase, OPA noted that ceilings of rye grain do not become effective until June 1. Meanwhile, the agency said, rye bread bakers "have been squeezed between sharply ad- vancing rye prices and bread ceilings." The rye bread increase is sub- ject to the limitation that whole- sale ceilings may' not exceed J2 cents a loaf. This means, OPA said, that retail prices will not be changed in the case of ryo bread now selling at wholesale for 12 or more cents a Jonf, Surplus Funds Of State Accruing OKLAHOMA CITY, April 30, funds, expected to reach almost by June 30, have begun accruing In the slnte general fund with two months to go before the end of the fiscal year, Ernest M.

American authorities learned of the assassination plot through one of the participants whom Hideo Tokayama, the accused but un- apprehended leader, attempted to poison, said Brig. Gen. Frayne Baker, MacArthur's public tions officer. Government Apologies The Japanese government offi- cially presented its apologies at MacArthur's office us reports of the like wildfire through Japanese fears of harsher occupation poli- cies. Kyuchi Tokuda, general secre- tary of the communist party, quickly said the communists weren't involved and added, "We have absolutely no reason to do away with General MacArthur." Tokayama, former Kempeitai (thought police) officer who later became a kamikaze (suicide) pi- lot, was known to possess gren- ades and pistols, Baker said. He was engaged for some time in preliminary arrangements to "en- list assistance" in a plot to kill MacArthur, a headquarters state- ment added, and had accumulat- ed yen for the purpose.
