The word 'Pontoloc' and other In- dian names seem too much of a mouthful for her to say.

Quebec bridge is one of the longest cantilever spans in the world. It provides rail and road crossings of the St. Lawrence river near Quebec city, Quebec, Canada, and provides sufficient clearance for ocean-going vessels. Democracy, said the speaker, is dependent on the Christian reli- gion, with faith in.the Son of God; His way is the solution for it pro- vides for all; but this requires better men for a better world, peaceful men for a peaceful world, saved men for a saved world, and a change in the nature of men. And as any solutions will be worked out during the- years to come when today's graduates will be taking over, they must effect- ively change conditions from ma- terialism and greed to Christian faith and service or democracy as a way of life must go. under. Success was 'the topic of the Senior Sermon' delivered to the graduating class of Ada High School by Reverend Frank Mc- Connel, pastor of the Nazarene Church, Sunday. Six Rules of Conduct In his talk, McConnel laid down six rules for' helping one to choose a career. "First, I should.make up my mind "what I want. I should count the cost. Third, Is it worth the price? Fourth, when I've gotten it, what will I do it? Fifth, In get- ting it, will I help humanity? Liist, What will happen to Reverend McConnel also gave the recipe for real success. Be a Christian, in head and heart, and have faith in Christ. Life begins with Christ, not any other age. Be dependable. Take everything with a smile. Learn to give and do not demand too many times your own way. It is sometimes better to give in Be on time. Five minutes many' times means the difference between success and failure. Be honest. Work, work, and work. Let it become an obsession with you. His clos- ing remark was, "Life without Christ is worthless." The program was opened by the processional with the Junior choir singing "God of pur Fath- followed with the invocation by Rev. James O. Michael. The girls' glee club of Ada highschool then sans "Beautiful Savior" and "Still, Still With- Thee."

The junior choir sang the Reces- sional, "Grant Us Thy as the program ended. Seizure Of Coal Mines Seen Likely Government Official Sayt Leaders of Both Sides Hopeless of Contract Now WASHINGTON, May government labor official to- day predicted government -seiz- ure of the soft coal mines as the next step in averting a renewal of the coal strike.. This official, who asked to re- main- anonymous, said John L. Lewis and the soft coal, operators now feel that further efforts to negotiate a contract would be fruitless. Seizure action depends how- ever, he said on the willingness of both sides to cooperate in run- ning the mines eventually work- ing out a contract with govern- ment help. The mines are now working under a truce which ex- pires May 25. The labor official expressed be- lief that if seizure is ordered, it probably would not occur until after the railroad controversy has been solved. The government took over operation of the rail- roads Friday and the Brother- hoods of Trainmen and Engineers subsequently postponed their threatened strike until 4 p.m Thursday. If no settlement has been reached in the rail dispute before that time, the reaction of the rail workers to government operation would be-watched for its possible effect on the miners, this official said. Before leaving for Kansas City yesterday, President Truman cDeferred with Lewis and Charles O'Neill, chief spokesman for the operators, at separate meetings. Mr. Lewis, it was understood, declined to commit the miners to working under government seiz- ure until the United Mine Work- ers' 250-man policy committee las had an opportunity to pass, on the question, Lewis is believed to- be planning to assemble the committee iater this1 week, but the union .headquarters would not confirm.-this.

He said the United States and other countries in a position to help "must continue arid heighten their efforts." Most Miners on Job But Some Balky; Steel Output Is Cut Mr. Truman's statement was made in a welcoming talk read By Thc Associated Press The second week of truce min- ing was under way today with the majority of soft coal diggers swinging their picks in all 25 bituminous producing states ex- cept Pennsylvania. Only about a fourth of Penn- sylvania's soft coal work- ers were on the job. The rest in- dicated they would stick to their traditional "no contract, no work" policy. In central Pennsylvania, miners were idle as AFL United Mine Worker reinstated their to work.

Gromyko Plans To Boycott Session By MAX HARRELSON NEW YORK, May Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Grom- yko indicated today that he would boycott Wednesday's session of the United Nations security coun- cil which has been called to take up again the, controversial Iranian question. Gromyko, who already has walked out on one of council and "boycotted another, said in response to a question as to whether he would attend: "I made myself quite clear on that some time ago." He apparently was referring to his statement of April 23 that he would not take part in any fur- -ther discussions of the Iranian question. This development came as the council approached another dead- line in the Iranian case, still without any assurances from ei- ther Russia or Iran that all Soviet troeps had been withdrawn from Iranian soil. on long-term famine conditions. "In meeting at this critical per- the president's message said, "You have heavy responsi- bilities and great opportunities." Hoover For Revised Setup Herbert Hoover, addressing the session, urged the creation by Sepl. 1 of a broad international food administration to spur pro- duction and guide distribution of supplies. He declared there is need for drastic reorganization of the world fight on famine. WASHINGTON, May 20, An eclimate that the world may fall a third short on food again next year challenged experts of 18 nations and five international organizations as they met today to 'combat famine. The estimate came from the United Nations food and agricul- ture organization metric tons of wheat needed in shortage areas, and to tons available from surplus countries. And from the director general of FAO, Sir John Orr, the dele- gates, heard a warning that: No Reserves In Sight "The position seems to be that following the 1946 harvest the world will be as badly off for food as it was at the time of the 1945 harvest because this time we will have no, great reserves' of food carried over from the previous year to fall back on." A message from President Tru- man and an address by former President Herbert Hoover, just returned from a world survey of famine conditions, were the first items on the conference program. Must Reach Decisions Sir John said in a. statement prepared for the delegates that there must be decisions without delay on: 1. How the 1946 harvest can be husbanded to cover the period until the next harvest. 2. How to get maximum pro- duction in the'1947 harvest 3. Arrangements to keep the whole problem under continuous review so that any adverse devel- opment can be met immediately. 4. Creation of an international organization to deal with the "whole anticipated period of the food shortage." Want UNRRA Extended With that agenda before conference will be asked to look into the possibility also of ex- tending the life of UNRRA be- yond 1946 to help famine areas until they get back on their UNRRA r.ow supplies food to some of the war-devastated but it is scheduled to go out of business December- 31, except for relief to China. The conference also will con- sider whether a broadened inter- national agency is needed to sup- ervise allocation of surplus foods among shortage areas. A Brit- ish-Canadian-American combined food board makes allocations now. Some American authorities favor Argentina, Australia- and France, and perhaps other countries. The food board also is marked for expiration December 31. WATER TO BE CUT OFF SHORT TIME Water will be cut off in the southeastern part of Ada tonight (Monday) from 9 until 12 o'clock, according to Gene Klepper, water superintendent. During that period city work- men will make a' tie-in on the main line at the corner of Fifteenth and Stonewall where a water line is being moved from under where paving will soon be poured.

Meanwhile at Cleveland, the magazine Steel said coal output during the truce has not improv- ed the outlook fer the steel in- dustry and that no gain is ex- pected in steelmaking until the coal situation is definitely settled. Pig- Iron Shortage Hurts Pig iron shortage, a result of banking many blast furnaces, has caused founderies to curtail oper- ations and in some cases to close until conditions become more nor- mal. Under the circumstances, the magazine said, it will take at least a the fuel sup- ply is bring the pig iron output to a point where a reasonable rate of shipments can be expected. U. S.

U. S. Steel has lost tons of ingot production in its Pittsburgh district plants be- cause of the coal strike and its workers are idle, a spokes- man said. Counlian Buys Peebly Stock J. H.
