Ada May Get Some Federal Airport Aid Under Bill Ada may receive a portion of an estimated in feder- al airport aid money since the Jill has been signed by President Truman. It has 'been explained that a airport expansion prp- ;ram is planned for Oklahoma. The program will be carried out to encourage-the building of a number of small utility airports n the state, rather, than a few arge fields. Under the measure signed by the president, the funds are to be matched by the state or loca subdivisions of government; I is expected that Oklahoma wil receive about to be matched under the airport con slruction program, making the sum of money to be spent abou State Commission In Charge As soon as copies" of the bil are received, the aviation com- mission will be called into spec- ial session to plan its procedure under the program. This meet is expected in the near future. Class Four airports and above will deal directly with the CAA Ada comes under this classifica- tion and will receive all its money for improvement through this program. The money that is to be match- ed can be used for construction of any part of an airport except hangars. No hangars can be built with the money received throueh this program. Local citizens' at- tention is called'to this fact as a bond issue may be called to pay for the hangars that are at the Chauncey Airport now. After the hangars are con- structed, Ada will be ready to receive some of the money deriv- ed from the bill signed by Presi- dent Truman. The money to be matched can be used for construction of ad- ministration station and other necessary facilities. The principal reason for the state getting this money is for the construction of small airports near small towns. The aviation commission of Ok- lahoma will set a series of public hearings over the state to ascer- tain the desires of local units Df government under the federal' aid program. It may also decide whether to seek an allocation from the gov- ernor's contingency fund to help finance the initiation of the pro- gram. Local airport authorities have said that they are for this.

Cut Off Broadcast Someone'Snips Wires In Basement Before Green Goei on Air ASHEVILLE, N. C., May scheduled NBC broadcast by AFL President William Green was suddenly cut off the air to- night, and NBC Announcer John Hurley told reporters it was be- cause someone snipped three wires in the basement of the city auditorium where Green spoke. The broadcast went dead about 15 seconds after it began. Hurley was introducing Green at the time and the labor leader had not begun speaking. Green then gave a 15-minute rousing speech be- fore southern AFL leaders, opening the AFL southern or- ganization drive. Green and the audience believed the speech was aeing heard throughout the na- :ion. T. C. McManus, Asheville plant manager for the Southern Bell Telephone company, confirmed Hurley's statement that three tele- phone wires bearing the broad- cast were all cut at the same point. McManus said that in his opinion it could not have been accidental. Hurley, who introduced Green on the broadcast, is chief NBC an- nouncer at Washington. Fewer Pigs, More Wheat That's Request to Farmers, To Get More Grain For Famine Areas Abroad By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, May .between meat for this country and grain for starv- ing lands, Secretary of. Agricul- ture Anderson tonight asked farmers to produce 10 per cent fewer pigs next fall than they did a year ago. The action, he said, is dictated by the fact that, grain supplies will not be large enough to con- :inue hog production at present levels and supply famine areas abroad. It was taken as Stabilization Director Chester Bowles served notice to the public -that the meat supply "pinch is really going to be felt next winter and spring." Meat will be more plentiful with- in the next few months, he re- ported, 'but then will become scarcer as a result of higher grain prices authorized in the hope of getting more grain for export. "We aren't going to like it very Bowles said in a broad- cast. "But we would like our- selves a whole lot less if we went on callously, blindly, stuffing our own mouths while we defaulted on our plain obligations to the starving of this earth." Anderson asked a pig reduction of nine per cent in the midwest- ern corn belt and at least 12 per cent in other areas. This differ- ence recognizes the difficulty of obtaining adequate feed supplies outside the corn belt and the need for economy in the use of transportation facilities.

At Very First Chance, Had Banana With Ice Cream In St. Louis Station Mrs. James Mitchell arrived last week in Ada from London, England, to make her home with her husband at North Stonewall. The Mitchells have been mar- ried a year and it had been nine months since Mitchell, who was stationed for 23 months in the ETO with the Eighth Air.Force, had seen his wife. Mrs. Mitchell was given 12 days to pack for her trip to Am- erica, but that was ample time considering that she had known for more than a year that she would make the trip. There were 731 brides on the S S Ei-icsson and of that number four came to is living in Oklahoma City and the other two in Enirl.

On the long stretch from Lon- don to Ada, the last five minutes were the worst part of the trip for Marjorie-Mitchell, but she forgot it all when she arrived at the Frisco Depot and found her husband pacing the platform.

WARD WASHINGTON, May government today ordered the railroad freight embargo lift- ed Monday but slapped controls on the entire soft coal output ex- pected during the strike "truce." The action covers "captive" mines as well as others and may withhold coal from industry im- mediately. But it provides the government with an expected to tons of coal for emergency users without re- sorting to seizure of the pits. Saturday Conference Friendly John L. Lewis and the mine owners met, meanwhile, in what Edward F. McGrady, federal con- ciliator, called "a very friendly, very cooperative atmosphere" to seek the settlement President Truman requested, by Wednesday. After morning and afternoon sessions which brought no specific word of progress the conferees adjourned until 11 a.m. (EST) to- morrow. The stumbling block ap- icared to be Lewis' demand for in back holiday pay. Possibly in this connection, most of the afternoon session was de- voted to a caucus of the operators. [t was they who proposed tho Sunday session, Says Operators Made John D. Battle, executive sec- retary of the national coal asso- ciation, was not among the con- "erees, issued a statement saying that "the coal mine owners made offers to the union leaders weeks ago that should have prevented a work stoppage, and they renewed heir- offers mqny times." de- clared that Lewis' truce offer 'further denipnstrates his con- rol over th'e'nation's coal sup- ply." With miners generally ready to ;o back to work Monday morning ix'cept tin several scattered lo- :als, officials not only took con- rol of the coal to be mined dur- the two-week truce but called or continued dimouts and other lectric conservation mea- urcs in view of tho still-dead- ocked contract negotiations. Although the order by the solid uels administration covers the oal to be produced by "captive" lines owned by the steel com- anies. Much of this is unsuitable or "use outside steel mills. Tha ffect of the order on steel pro- uction remained uncertain. Coal To Be Doled Out The order, in effect, sets up riorities by which the accumul- ting coal will be doled out by le government. The first pre- ference will go to utilities, rail- roads, laundries, hospitals and the like. Only after these needs are filled may factories get coal. The nationwide freight embar- go which took effect Thursday will end at a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) Monday. With it will go the express embargo and the ban on parcel post shipments weighing more than 11 pounds.
