Barns Crowded All of the barns were filled to rear capacity because of the in- creased number of entries in the show here. Bernard Marquart of Milton Junction, Wise., was scheduled to judge the Milking Shorthorn class. He is a breeder of Milking Shorthorns and established a United States record with one of his Milking Shorthorn cows. The record was for milking and but- teriat production. Jersey Champions Named The judging of Jersey animals ended early Tuesday afternoon and complete results were not available at press time.

Real Bear Hug: LONDON, May 14. coroner ruled today that Miss Florence Quarrel, 22, died acci- dentally in her sweetheart's arms after his too-exuberant embrace exerted pressure on a bulnerable nerve center in her neck. Dr. Keith Simpson, government pathologist, testified that the mo- mentary pressure caused imme- diate paralysis of the lung and heart functions. Order Keeps Restric- tions on Millling WASHINGTON, May Agriculture An- derson laid down today a pro- gram 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 bushels of wheat for famine areas. It continues restrictions on the milling of wheat into flour for domestic consumption and pro- hibitions against using wheat to make beer and whiskey. Limits Domestic Distribution The program continues the 80 per cent flour extraction rate and limits domestic distribution of flour-and wheat products. Beginning July 1 the quantity of flour and wheat products which may be distributed by millers and manufacturers will be limited to 85 per cent of the amount they distributed in the corresponding month of 1945. At sresent distribution is limited to 75 per cent. Other points of the program in- cluded: 1. Continuation of the present voluntary wheat conservation program. Under this consumers are asked to eat 40 per cent less wheat products and public eating places are asked, to serve less bread and other wheat products. More Limits For Livestock 2.. Further restrictions will be placed on use of wheat by live- stock feed manufacturers as soon as the _ general livestock feed grain situation improves suffi- ciently. 3. An order will be issued un- der which the government will requisition from elevators, ware- housemen, merchandisers and other commercial buyers, 25 per- cent of the wheat they buy. Such wheat will be used to meet ex- port commitments. 4. Farmers will be required to offer for sale at least half of the grain they deliver to elevatorsior storage. This action will be de- signed to prevent excessive amounts of the crop from being tied up in storage by producers who might wish to hold their grain for a possible higher future price. The requisitioning action will not apply to farm-stored Wnr vetcian D. E. Blane, of Hollywood, dreamed up a good business for himself when he got the idea of collecting bad debts by pat-king his car, with sign seen front of debtors' homes and waiving patiently until embarrassment compels victims to pay.

The object- ive of this order will be to con- serve transportation. Officials ex- plained that without such an or- der, early harvested wheat from this area might be drawn off into other areas of the country only to have to be replaced later by shipments back from these other areas. 6. Present measures limiting in- ventory stocks of wheat held by millers and manufacturers will not be made applicable to 1946 crops wheat unless inequitable distribution makes such action necessary.

The new system, using trucks especially construc- ted 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 addition- al .family unit using water from the same water meter. .A penalty -is .provided in ..the ordinance which has been, adopt- ed- 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 of- fensive odors be disseminated along the route to offend a citi- zen. 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 it will operate daily.

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 tomor- row as 'President Truman re- quested. The United Mine Workers' president, furthermore, demand- ed 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 indus- try, operators had calculated the cost of the fund at Lewis told reporters, however, that last year was exceptionally good year and termed the oper- ators' estimate of cost "grotesque and absurd." In addition, he said the oper- ators' contribution would be de- ductible in computing tax pay- ments. "Regardless of the cast, the hu- manities of the miners have to be taken care Lewis said. No White House Development While operators withheld for- mal comment, one said privately that Lewis' demand for the seven per cent levy was "ridiculous." At the White House, Press Sec- retary Charles G. Ross told news- men there had been no develop- ment in the coal case there since last Friday when Mr. Truman told Lewis and Charles O'Neill representative, he wanted them to return tomorrow with a new contract. Lewis told reporters at a news conference after leaving contract negotiating sessions, that the seven percent levy was "ultra- conservative" and its receipts be used for these six pur- poses, only: Adequate and modern medical service; properly standarized hos- pitalization; life and health in- surance .at reasonable rates; re- habilitation and training: of dis- abled men; financial aid in case of distress and hardship; any money is "cultural and educational work" among the Truman Prepared To Issue Order Keeping Draft Set-up Going Bowles Thinks Rationing May Yet Have to Be Restored But Hoover Doesn't Favor Return mine workers.

A local physician examined Kiggins and reported that he had died of a heart attack. He and his wife, who is visiting -i Lawton, have been making their home in Ada for several years. Kiggins was found by J. Roberts, who opened a door his room at the request of one of the women at the house. Ono of the occupants of the house said that Kiggins was walking around in hi? room about 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. Another occupant said that' she thought she heard him walking around about ]0 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. President Summons Rail Conference Brotherhood, Operators Representatives Meet Today at White House WASHINGTON, May 14, President Truman today sum- moned representatives of the "Big' Five" Brotherhoods and Railroad Operators to House conference in an effort to head off a strike called for Satur- day. A walkout by 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 rail- road brotherhoods to' confer with him at p. m. Fifteen minutes later, Ross said, this conference will -be joined by representatives of the Associa- 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. During Low Prices Colonial times, you could buy a 30-pound turkey for 25 cents in Boston. Pigeons were selling for a penny a dozen in those days. idencc 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 res- idence 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 collec- ted 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 re- pealed and a state of emergency has been declared so that the ord- inance 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 in 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. Blind Student To Meet President William Jewell Senior Is Third Man in Class LIBERTY, Mo., May 14, Morgan "Jerry" Jones, 23-year- old .blind student who will grad- uate with honors Monday from William Jewell college as third man jn his class, is looking for- ward to meeting a "neighbor" who will be sharing the platform at commencement exercises. The neighbor is. President Tru- man, who will receive an honor- ary doctor of laws degree from the college. Jerry has never met the president, although his home is just across the road from the Truman homestead at Grandview, Mo. the demands so thoroughly that the operators said they desired no further explanation on that issue. Rejects Three-Way Control The UMW, Lewis said, reject- ed the idea of a tripartie of management, labor and gov- ernment it would "simply become another bureaucratic governmental agen- cy with the overhead eating up a large part of the revenue, clog- ged with red tape, and with its awards delayed after the man- ner of other government agencies "We pointed out that it is no business of the operators to sup- ervise this Lewis added. "The coal industry mangles these peoples and the UMW wants the right to alleviate their ngony and distress." Operators would have the veto over continuation of the fund at the end of each con- tract period, Lewis said, by their simple refusal to agree to its ciusion in a new agreement. The amount spent would be limited by the payroll levy fixed contact, he addedi and the UMW would be "constantly on trial before the councils of in- dustry and the public at large" as to its administration. Charge Against Payroll i "The fund should be a charge against coal he sum- marized. "It should be a pay- roll charge in an amount equal to seven percent of the gross earn- :ngs of the men; and it should be paid by the operators into a fund operated 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 WASHINGTON, May -Stabilization Director Chester Bowles said today he will recom- mend restoration of food ration- ing if the world food situation "gets lighter." Bowles made this statement a day after former President Her- bert Hoover counselled against such action until this year's crops ore harvested. "I don't think the situation is tight enough Bowles told a news conference, "but if it gets tighter we should put it (ration- ing) on." Bowles mentioned meat, butter, cheese and possibly bread as foods it might be necessary to ration. The stabilization chief said ra- iioning would assure fairer dis- tribution 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 Bowles said. Back from a' global survey of hungry nations, Hoover said he thought it too early for a deci- sion on rationing, because he had hopes the world's food produc- tion will be better than antici- pated, with consequent lessening of the famine emergency. The survey report which Hoov- er brought back with him drew warm approval from President Truman and Secretary of Agri- culture Clinton P. Anderson a fact which influenced food ex- perts in reaching their conclusion that rationing would keep out of the picture at least for the pres- ent. 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 volun- tary food conservation and gov- ernment restrictions on grain use. Hoover spoke out on the ra- tioning question at a news con- ference after presenting his re- port to Mr. .Truman yesterday. Once the 1946 harvests are in, he said, an appraisal of supplies and needs can be made to determine renewed rationing here would be necessary to carry hun- gry areas through until 1947 har- vests. Crisis Over By Sept. 1 Hoover's statement lent sup- port to contentions of both Mr. Truman and Anderson that ra- tioning is not necessary to meet foreign food needs during the present emergency, which, in Hoover's estimate, will cease for the year about September 1. Hoover stated that he believed voluntary food conservation mea- sures, 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 coun- tries 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 em- ergency. In addition, the govern- ment has reduced civilian flour supplies 25 per cent and has re- stricted use of wheat for live- stock feed. Hoover scheduled a meeting with the famine committee today and a talk at Chicago Friday night. Both are expected to pro- duce appeals for broader consum- er adherence to the voluntary program. The former president's chief objective in going to South America will be to get that hem- isphere to join the United States '.n curtailing consumption of cereals.

He was arrested by City Mar- hal Steve Dennis yesterday while boarding a bus because of ivhat Dennis called his "suspic- ous actions."

By LOUIS NEVIN PARIS, May can sources said today that So- viet Foreign Minister V. M. Molo- tpv 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 Sec- retary Bevin disapproved the suggestion. Both Byrnes and Bevin object- ed when Mplotov proposed the bargain of withdrawing from Bul- garian lines of communication to Austria, the informants said. Bev- in declared a comparable ar- rangement would be for the Rus- sians to leave Romania if the al- lies left Italy. He said Britain was ready to withdraw from It- aly if the Soviets left Romania. Bevin Quotes Sept. Agreement The British foreign secretary further was reported to have de- clared that the Russians agreed at the foreign ministers council in London last September to a decision that they would with- draw from Bulgaria while leaving troops in Romania to protect their lines of communication to Austria. An informant said Byrnes and Bevin then proposed the estab- lishment of a commission of mili- tary experts to decide whether the allied lines of communication through Italy to Austria were physically necessary.

And Will Fight to Keep Them from Permanent Measure 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 ex- pire at midnight. Hill reported this agreement was reached at a two-hour clos- ed session of the senate military committee today. "We don't want to accept Hill told a report- er. "We can fight out the per- manent provisions of the legisla- tion later." Chairman Elbert Thomas CD- Utah) of the military committee was authorized to ask the senate to agree to the house amend- ments.

Would Keep machinery Press Secretary Charles G. Ross so'told''a news conference. It would preserve the 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 induc- tion of fathers and teen-agers last night before accepting a senate- approved extension of selective service until July 1.
