Limit Set On Use of Wheat Order Keeps Restrictions on Milllinp WASHINGTON, May 14.—(/P) Secretary of Agriculture Anderson laid down today a program continuing limitations on the domestic use of wheat until the middle of 1947 in order to help hungry areas abroad. It is designed to assure at least 250,000,000 bushels of wheat for famine areas. It continues restrictions on the milling of wheat into flour for domestic consumption and prohibitions against using wheat to make beer and whiskey. Limits Domestic Distribution The program continues the 80 per cent flour extraction rate limits domestic distribution of flour and wheat products.

A local physician examined Higgins and reported that he had died of a heart attack. He and his wife, who is visiting in Lawton, have been making their home in Ada for several years. Higgins was found by J. C. Roberts, who opened a door to his room at the request of one of the women at the house. One of the occupants of the house said that Higgins was walking around in his room about 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. Another occupant said that she thought she heard him walking around about IO a.m., but officials from the funeral home said that the man had been dead from four to six hours. Police Chief Quinton Blake was notified that the man had been found dead and was assisted by Justice of Peace Percy Armstrong and assistant Chief Cecil Smith in investigating the case. son and Mrs. Helen Douthit.  *- President Summons Rail Conference Brotherhood, Operators Representatives tc^ Meet Today at White House WASHINGTON, May 14, (All— President Truman today summoned representatives of the “Big Five” Brotherhoods and Railroad Operators to a 'White House conference in an effort to head off a strike called for Saturday. A walkout by 250,000 engineers and trainmen would tie up the nation’s railway transport system. Press Secretary Charles G. Ross announced that the president had asked representatives of the railroad brotherhoods to confer with him at 3:45 p. rn. (EST). Fifteen minutes later, Ross said, this conference will be joined by representatives of the Associe* tion of American Railroads. The president indicated at his last news conference that he would not hestitate to seize the railroads if it became necessary to keep them running. Low Pri I During Colonial times, you *• The old contract system has been eliminated. The new system, using trucks especially constructed for such work, will be fi nanced through a fee system. A fee of 50 cents for a single family unit will be charged and an additional 25 cents per month will be charged for each additional family unit using water from the same water meter. A penalty is provided in the ordinance which has been adopted by the city commissioners, with water service to be cut off for failure to pay the fee. Once A Week At Start At the start of the collection, garbage will be collected once each week; and after about a couple of weeks collections will be made twice weekly. The garbage collection trucks are completely enclosed and no passing gust of wind can blow papers or other bits of refuse along the streets. Neither can offensive odors be disseminated along the route to offend a citizen. The two new garbage collection trucks have been on display for the past two weeks and will go into use Thursday morning with a definite route planned. Each truck will have a territory over which it will oDerate daily. What A Unit Is A family unit is defined as any apartment, group of rooms or residence having a single kitchen which is connected with a city water meter and an additional family unit is defined as any apartment, group of rooms or residence with a kitchen which is using water off a water meter in connection or conjunction with another family unity. The garbage fee is to be collected and paid by charging each water meter with the appropriate fee to be charged in accordance with the schedule against the user in whose name the water meter is registered. Failure to pay the garbage collection fees assessed will be the discontinuance of water service in the same manner as it could be discontinued for failure to pay a regular water bill. An old ordinance has been repealed and a state of emergency has been declared so that the ordinance goes into effect at once. Business Area Not Included The collection of garbage will apply to the residential section of Ada that is inside the city of Ada. There will be no collections made rn the business districts. The Ada Jaycees are planning to make a survey of the business district to determine the demand for a garbage collection service. -k- .    • To __jces —--—o Colonial times, » uu could buy a 30-pound turkey for 25 cents in Boston.

Lewis Insists Welfare Fund Comes First Sarvn Notice No Contract Until Union-Cantralled Fund Demand I* Mat WASHINGTON, May 14 —John L. Lewis served notice today he won’t negotiate a new soft coal contract until operators agree to a miners’ welfare fund, thus apparently ruling out any chance of a settlement by tomorrow as President Truman requested. The United Mine Workers* president, furthermore, demanded sole union control of the fund which he proposed to raise through a seven percent levy on payrolls. This would be paid by the operators. On the basis of last year’s bil-lion-dollar payroll in the industry, operators had calculated the cost of the fund at $70,000,000. Lewis told reporters, however, that last year was exceptionally good year and termed the operators estimate of cost “grotesque and absurd.”    ^ In addition, he said the operators contribution would be deductible in computing tax payments. “Regardless of the cast, the humanities of the miners have to be taken care of,’’ Lewis said. No White House Development While operators withheld formal comment, one said privately that Lewis’ demand for the seven per cent levy was “ridiculous.” At the White House, Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told newsmen there had been no develop-nent in the coal case there since last Friday when Mr. Truman told Lewis and Charles O’Neill 0 p era tors*' representative, he wanted them to return tomorrow with a new contract. L*wis told reporters at a news conference after leaving contract negotiating sessions, that the seven percent levy was “ultra-conservative ’ and its receipts vfould be used for these six purposes only: Adequate and modern medical »®r£e; Prop®1*! standarized hospitalization; life and health in-reasonable rates; rehabilitation and training of disabled men; financial aid in case of distress and hardship; and—if any money is left—for “cultural and educational work” arnotta the mine workers. Lewis said he had explained the demands so thoroughly that the operators said they desired no further explanation on that issue. Rejects Three-Way Control ,Tj}e UMW, Lewis said, rejected the idea of a tripartie board— of management, labor and government representatives—because it would “simply become another bureaucratic governmental agency with the overhead eating up a large part of the revenue, clogged with red tape, and with its awards delayed after the mnn-ner of other government agencies. We pointed out that it is no business of the operators to sup-ervise this fund,” Lewis add«&. 1 ne coal industry mangles these peoples and the UMW wants the distress ® viate their a8°ny and Operators would have the veto &er ?vtu continuation of the fund at the end of each contract period, Lewis said, by their simple refusal to agree to its inclusion in a new agreement. limits tm°*unt spen,t. w°uld be limited by the payroll levy fixed ttmw    if    added* and the ♦^^0ul<* be “constantly on trial before the councils of industry and the public at large” as to its administration. Charge Against Payroll The fund should be a charge ^gaiPSt^COaiTproduction•,, he summarized. “It should be a payroll charge in an amount equal to ?nafnrtfPflTCent °f the grOSS «wn-J men; and u should be paid by the operators into a fund tote orated by UMW.” xxxx the mine workers have no intention of negotiating any con-tract, now or later, that does not provide such a fund. It is a condition precedent to making any agreement ” O Truman Prepared To Issue Order Keeping Draft Set-un Bowles Thinks Rationing May Yet Have to Be Restored But Hoover Doesn't Favor Return WASHINGTON, May 14.— —Stabilization Director Chester Bowles said today he will recommend restoration of food rationing if the world food situation “gets tighter.” Bowles made this statement a day after former President Herbert Hoover counselled against such action until this year’s crops are harvested. “I don’t think the situation is tight enough now,” Bowles told a news conference, “but if it gets tighter we should put it (rationing) on.” Bowles mentioned meat, butter, cheese and possibly bread as foods it might be necessary to ration. The stabilization chief said rationing would assure fairer distribution of food in this country if overseas commitments cut deeply into the total supply. Will Know Soon “We will know better in 30 to 60 days as to what should be done,” Bowles said. Back from a global survey of hungry nations, Hoover said he thought it too early for a decision on rationing, because he had hopes the world’s food production will be better than anticipated, with consequent lessening of the famine emergency. The survey report which Hoover brought back with him drew warm approval from President Truman and Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson — a fact which influenced food experts in reaching their conclusion that rationing would keep out of the picture at least for the present. Remains Voluntary These exports, who would not be quoted directly, were of the opinion that the country’s famine relief efforts until harvest will continue to be confined to voluntary food conservation and government restrictions on grain use. Hoover spoke out on the ra tioning question at a news conference after presenting his report to Mr. Truman yesterday. Once the 1946 harvests are in, he said, an appraisal of supplies and needs can be made to determine whether renewed rationing here would be necessary to carry hungry areas through until 1947 harvests. Crisis Over By Seal I Hoover’s statement lent support to contentions of both Mr. Truman and Anderson that rationing is not necessary to meet foreign food needs during the present emergency, which, in Hoover’s estimate, will cease for the year about September I. Hoover stated that he believed voluntary food conservation measures, if effectively laid before consumers, could have more food than coupon rationing. The former president, who soon will go to South America to seek greater relief aid from countries there, is expected to insist that more steam be put behind the voluntary wheat and fats conservation program outlined in March by President Truman’s famine emergency committee. Eat Less Wheat, Fats That program called upon Americans to eat 40 per cent less wheat products and 25 per cent less fats during the current emergency. In addition, the government has reduced civilian flour supplies 25 per cent and has restricted use of wheat for livestock feed. Hoover scheduled a meeting with the famine committee today and a talk at Chicago Friday night. Both are expected to produce appeals for broader consumer adherence to the voluntary program. The former president’s chief objective in going to South America will be to get that hemisphere to join the United States rn curtailing consumption of cereals.

He was arrested by City Marshal Steve Dennis yesterday while boarding a bus because of | what Dennis called his “suspicious actions.” He denied any connection with the Texarkana murders, saying he had never been in Texarkana, and had never heard of the killings. He was brought here by Arkansas State Officer Harley Quinn. He was described at about 50 years old. He carried a money belt with $300 in it, and a diary which he said he bought at Houston, Tex. He said he was from Michigan, and wras visiting the southwest. Sheriff W. E. Davis of Miller county, Ark., said the man was “not a good suspect.” Meanwhile, Texarkana was gradually regaining its composure, although apparently the phantom killer believed responsible for five deaths here since March 24 was still free.  *- President Truman In Stale May 27 OKLAHOMA CITY, May 14, — Oklahomans will get a chance to see President Truman Monday, May 27, when the chief executive flies here to speak at a public meeting of the national governors’ conference in municipal auditorium.

S., Russia Opposed PARIS, May 14,    —Secretary of State James F. Byrnes said in a formal statement tonight he had proposed that the council of foreign ministers adjourn until June 15 after considering the German question. No action was taken immediately by the foreign ministers of the proposal. The secretary of state said he had nroposed the immediate signing of a revised armistice witn Italy to bridge the gap until a formal peace treaty was agreed upon and that a peace conference of the 21 European nations be called either for July I or July 15. He gained immediate British and French approval of these and other proposals, b„t the Soviet delegation said it wanted to discuss them first. By LOUIS NEVIN PARIS, May 14.—-{£*)—American sources said today that Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov proposed withdrawal of Rus-sian troops from Bulgaria on the condition that allied troops leave Italy, but U. S. Secretary of State Byrnes and British Foreign Secretary Bevin disapproved the suggestion. Both Byrnes and Bevin objected when Molotov proposed the bargain of withdrawing from Bulgarian lines of communication to Austria, the informants said. Bevin declared a comparable arrangement would be for the Russians to leave Romania if the allies left Italy. He said Britain was ready to withdraw from Italy if the Soviets left Romania. Bevin Quotes Sept Agreement The British foreign secretary further was reported to have de-♦    tbe Russ*ans agreed at the foreign ministers council in London last September to a decision that they would withdraw from Bulgaria while leaving troops in Romania to protect their lines of communication to Austria. An informant said Byrnes and WASHINGTON, May 14. Senator Hill (D-Ala.) said today senate leaders have decided to accept house prohibitions against drafting fathers and ‘teen agers rather than let the draft act expire at midnight. Hill reported this agreement was reached at a two-hour closed session of the senate military committee today. “We don’t want to accept th^se amendments,” Hill told a reporter. “We can fight out the permanent provisions of the legislation later.” Chairman Elbert Thomas (D-Utah) of the military committee was authorized to ask the senate to agree to the house amendments. The White House said today President Truman is prepared to issue an emergency order preserving selective service machinery in the event congress fails to complete action today on draft extension. Would Keep Machinery Press Secretary Charles G. Ross so told a news conference. It would preserve th# machin-ery of the draft system, he said, but added he could not give any details as to how the order will be worded. It could not provide for drafting anyone in event of the draft law’s expiration. The house prohibited induction of fathers and teen-agers last night before accepting a senate-approved extension of selective service until July I. Expires at Midnight Capitol Hill generally had supposed the act was good until midnight tomorrow. But Chairman May (D-Ky\) of the house military committee disclosed on the floor last night the law actually goes off the books at 12:01 a. rn. May 15. He declared wording of the original bill made that “very clear.’’ Selective service officials said he was right. --u-- (only (amer Fund Drive dean Goal Total Fosse* $2,775 Wit* Goal af $3,000 is Sight Pontotoc county’s cancer fun drive, which started off slowb is coming down the stretch no\ with closing finish like that c Assault, Derby and Preaknes winner.
