Enid. Kingfisher and Oklahoma City elevators all received ship- ments. Two cars of wheat arriv- ing at Enid from Frederick tested No. 1 hard except for excessive moisture content. A special 25-car wheat tram from the southwest also arrived at Enid but no report was imme- diately available on its tests. W. Hubbard and Sons, who farm west of Kingfisher, deliver- ed the first load of 1946 wheat to the Kingfisher market. It tested 62.5 with a moisture content of 14 per cent. Three hundred and fifty bush- els of the new crop arrived in Oklahoma City from Tillman county three weeks earlier than last week's harvest. The wheat registered sample grade hard winter, tested 61, Moisture con- tent was 16.7 per cent. An estimated 200 combines were reported concentrated at Grandfield, south of Lawton, over the weekend as crews prepared begin the harvest and work northward through the grain belt. Farm officials in Comanche county announced they had made preliminary plans for shipping the wheat to markets by govern- ment trucks if the railroad strike ties up transportation. Comanche county has been promised 50 trucks for its estimated harvest of to 400.000 bushels a coun- ty production marketing associa- tion official said. ----------------------K-------------------- Designed and Made by '31 Grad, Honors Former Stu- dents Who Died in Service A new honor plaque hangs in the main corridor by the office e-trance of Ada high school.

Hawkins Clear Of Charges Patrolman Acquitted By Jury After Brief Delibera- tion Monday It took a jury in district court about 20 minutes Monday night to acquit Harvey Hawkins, who was charged with embezzlement. The case started at 10 a.m. Monday with Judge Bob Howell, Jr., of loldenville presiding over the ourt and it was not until 9 p.m. lat the case was completed. Several times during the trial, obert Wimbish, attorney for the efendant, declared that the case ad boiled down to former Coun- y Attorney Vpl Crawford trying o protect criminals instead of ooperating with law enforcement fficers.

To the information, the defend- ant entered a plea of not guilty. Reputation A Factor Evidence was offered for the purpose of showing that the de- iendant bore a good reputation for being an honest, law-abiding citizen and the jury was instruct- ed to consider such evidence. The jury was further instructed that if they believe that the, defend- ant was a man of good character and of good reputation then they should consider that in connec- tion with all the other facts and circumstances in the case in de- termining the guilt or innocense of the crime charged. The burden of convincing the jury that Hawkins was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt was placed on the shoulders of the state; During the time that charges were pending against Hawkins, he was not employed by the Ok- lahoma Highway Patrol, but as soon as he was deemed innocent he was restored to his old posi- KRUG TO OPERATE GOAL MINES Byrnes Gives Russia Choice Stop Blocking Peace Con- ference or U.

Byrnes' formal report listed a .alf dozen outstanding issues with Moscow on which he indi- :ated the United States would not lompromise.

The new bi-partisan foreign policy, he said, "demands -action in concluding peace treaties riot only. with Italy, Rumania, Bul- garia, Hungary and Finland, bul also with Austria which is close to the center of the total, contin- ental problem."

Of Eaker, Mrs. Mackin says that he was a "nice the quiet kind, a good debater, that she has followed his career with interest because she had known him then, and that she is 'not sur- prised' that he has advanced to his present position near the top of the army air service, because even back in 1917 he "had the stuff."

Government Efforts to Keep Roads Running Develop 'Hopeful Trend' By NORMAN WALKER WASHINGTON, May __Government efforts to keep the railroads running drew optimis tic signals today but the Brother- hoods nevertheless went ahead with plans for their strike Thurs- day. President Truman, meanwhile, came back from his one-day visit to Missouri to devote his full en- ergies to the transportation and coal disputes. He was met nt the airport late yesterday by Recon- version Director John W. Snyder, who drove back to the White House with him. The Carriers and Brotherhoods both reported progress in their separate talks with John R. Steel- man. White House labor advisor who is acting as mediator in the dispute over wages and working rtues. Despite this hopeful note, a Brotherhood official told a re- porter privately that the Train- nen and Locomotive Engineer Brotherhoods are "going right ahead with plans for the strike." But he added that new secret code words also have gone out. Truce Ends Thursday The passwords "convention' and "Johnston" were employed by the two Brotherhoods last Saturday in notifying the engineers and trainmen that the five-day postponement had been arranged. Mr. Truman also in- cluded them in his dramatic an- nouncement that the tie-up was off.

Ross told newsmen that Krug would take over the mines tomorrow at a time to be determined by him. Acceptable To Both Sides Ross added that both the United Mine Workers and Oper- ators had informed the White House that Krug "was accept- able" to them. Does that mean the miners l work for the government? a reporter asked. Ross said he couldn't draw any nferences for the reporters. The president's executive order signed at 2 p.m. EST directs Crug, in his capacity as Solid Fuels administrator, to take over the mines and operate them in. such a way as to "preserve the national economic structure in. ;he present emergency." The government already has taken over the strike-threatened railroads. Plans For Takinff Ovej Ross said that "both sides were sounded out" on the appointment of Krug to operate the mines and "he was pronounced acceptable to both the coal miners and i the operators."

Union Makes New Offer Steelman had high hopes he could arrange a compromise be- fore the Thursday deadline. Along this line, he already had a new offer from the Brotherhoods. Whitney said the new proposal had been given Steelman to con- vey to the carriers negotiators. However, neither Whitney nor the carrier nor government men would say what it contained. An indication of the hopeful trend in the negotiations came from one of the principals who said privately that Steelman had succeeded in getting both sides to talk about the issues in more detail "than we've been able to before." Valve Repaired And Wafer Flows Again It took employees of the city water department only 30 min- utes Monday night to make a tie- in on the main line in the south- eastern part of Ada, but there was some trouble Tuesday morn- ing that was not expected, Gene Klepper, water superintendent, said Tuesday. The tie-in on the main line at the corner of Fifteenth and Stone- wall, where a water line is being moved from under where paving will soon be poured, was a quick job. The pressure from the lines was gone during the 30 minute period, but Tuesday morning sev- eral complaints were made to the city water office that there was no.water available one particu- lar district. Water department employees found a two-inch fialc valve broken near Twelfth street and had it repaired before noon Tues- day- Burrell Oliver, commissioner of public works and property, said that a valve had previously been twisted off and when the water pressure went down the gate fell, shutting off the water.
