Many others come for all or Dart of the sessions to make the spread of information among teachers and cozens Quite valuable, the director commented.  patently subsiding for the time being, politics and governmental affairs, closely entwined as they are, may come in for more of their deserved attention.  The primary election is four weeks from Tuesday.  Later in that remaining period this section is due to get more attention from state candidates. County candidates are busy now in their campaigns.  Saturday William O. Coe, democratic candidate for governor, spoke to a group of Pontotoc county voters here on his program for the governorship.

Smith, president of the Association of Operative Millers, asserted today the entire cereal industry was in a “chaotic condition” because, he said, the government failed to start accumulating a stock pile when it pledged grain shipments abroad.  “Approximately 90 per cent of the mills are closed dow'n for lack of wheat and the other IO per cent are going to be closed soon unless new crop wheat restrictions are eased,” he said in a statement.  Asserting he was speaking for the association, which convenes here Monday, he said:  “We are in sympathy and will cooperate in any move to alleviate suffering, hunger and famine in any country. But government authorities who pledged these huge shipments abroad should have started a stockpile or reserve when the pledge was made so when the time came for deliver^ there would not be the chaotic condition in the oldest industry as now exists.”  He said the 1946 wheat crop would be “too low to expect much relief in the way of bread and feed supplies.”  BALTIMORE, June I. — (ZP)__  P S.* Devereux, UbMU, who was awarded the navy cross for his command of the marine defense of Wake  l sla P d ;  mar ried today to Miss Rachel Clarke Cook in a military wedding at St. Ignatius Catholic  church.  FmhoMer Board After Hereof Study  Interest Displayed by Citi-*ens Expected ta Result In Large Vote Tuesday  A movement launched earlier this year to seek improvement in efficiency ani modernization of the city charter under which Ad* has operated since 1912 comes to a climax Tuesday of this week when Ada voters ballots on proposals for charter amendment.  The decision is a major one, for it involves decision of the voters on proposals that would alter the basic form of the city’s government from the three-commission to the council-manager form.  The proposals are the result of study of a board of freeholders elected in April representing all wards of the city.  Broadcast Monday Night  Monday night from 8:15 to 8:30 o’clock there will be a discussion over KADA of the proposed charter changes.  Last week members of the freeholder board discussed on a broadcast questions which had been invited and were sent in by interested citizens.  The members studied charters and city management of other cities of Ada’s size and class, consulted with many citizens here on their ideas and suggestions for seeking more efficiency in the op- erat * cn  of Ada’s government.  They submitted their report to th a city commissioners, who in turn are submitting the recommendations to the voters  C ®wncii Elected—Hires Manager The council-manager form they recommend places final authority ini the hands of a council of five citizens—elected from each ward and one at large—who serve without pay.  The council employes a manager who administers the city government through department headr and employes. There is no turn-over in employes in prospect  nSjf* ^i? ction - Proponents point out, with a man’s tenure in employment of the city depend* mg only on his ability and efficiency as an employe.  The manager is responsible to the council and can be released by the council at any time its members are convinced he is not getting the job done. Department heads are responsible to him and ‘"rough him to the council.  Mere elaborate provision is made for protection of city finances in purchasing, selling and property inventories.  Dictatorship* Is Charge Opposition to the proposed change is reported to be pushing  of  ‘ dicla torship’ in clothing the city manager with too much authority.  Pioponents reply that the council-manager set-up makes  a  more democratic government, more responsible directly to the people through the council elected,by .them, while centralizing authority instead of having a h r e e-commission government ®? mm issioner having oritv—  re * ore  divided—auth-  Tne freeholder board, before fna n Vi Ung re P° rt ’ held meet-discussion. ° U * * he dty ,0r  ° pen  Because of interest displayed by many citizens in the discus-  Tuesday  6 V ° te  “  expected on   Work Monday  Recessed After Several Dbys Work in April With More Investigating Planned  A grand jury in Pontotoc county was impanelled April 15, worked four days and as a result six indictments were returned before the grand jury was recessed until IO a.m., June 3, which is Monday morning.  Before it recessed, the grand jury reported that it had several important matters under investigation and remaining work is to be done starting with the reconvening Monday morning.  All suggestions from private citizens are welcomed by the men serving on the grand jury. Anyone who knows something that might justify the investigation of a grand jury is welcomed on special appointment to the meeting place of the grand jurors.  While in session, the grand jury inquired into the case of every person imprisoned in the jail of the county and subdivisions on a criminal charge.  The grand jury still has considerable work to do because when the jury was recessed the men had several reports that were not filed.  As to wilful and corrupt misconduct in office of public officials of the county and its subdivisions, the grand jury did not make a report to the court on the result of its findings.  The length of time that the grand jury may stay in session is not known, but it will not be adjourned until all of the business at hand is disposed of.  *--  College Enrollment For Summer Session Is Still on Rise  Ave rag* Net May Paid Circulation  8271  Member: Audit Bureau of Circulation  FIVE CENTS THE COPY  Truman Disapproves Senate Action On His Strike Bill  Weakened Measure  Is Passed Saturday  "Sell It and Buy a Horse!"

ArmyPlftfte, Smashing Records  WASHINGTON, June I.—(AP)_  Army planes have broken 13 international speed records within recent weeks, army air forces headquarters reported today in announcing a forthcoming disclosure of aerial developments at Wright Field, Ohio.  The total enrollment at East Central State college and the training school is now expected td reach and .possibly exceed 1,000 persons for the summer. There will be $DD£(i*iinatcly_J5Q students enrolled in college and an additional 250 in training school.  Final figures are not yet available since some schools in the East Central district did not dismiss until the past week and some teachers and graduates from these schools will enter college this week. In addition to* these a work-shop will be opened June 24, but it will cause but little change in enrollment figures.  The enrollment is still not up to pre-war standards but it is almost double last year’s total, according to Harvey Faust, East Central registrar.  Rain halted work on the baseball diamond and practice football field east of the college, but Saturday workmen were landscaping the main campus. They were digging out the gardens and drainage ditches after the rains had made the earth soft.  Oscar Parker said the two buildings containing h nu s i n g units at the north end of the campus were almost finished and would be occupied either next Monday or Tuesday, depending upon the weather. The two buildings on the south portion of the campus will be ready in about two weeks.  Funeral Services This Afternoon For J.G. Little, Pioneer  Jodie H.

Ryan, head of the AFL longshoremen asserted today the CIO maritime strike scheduled June 15 is “a political strike to turn over the shipping industry to Russia.”  On the other hand, CIO maritime leaders said they have received assurances that the AFL seamen of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts will support the CIO strike by refusing to cross picket lines.  At a hotel here, the CIO group exhibited the text of a letter to that effect from John Hawk, of New York, secretary-treasurer of the Atlantic and Gulf district of the AFL Seafarers international union.

Phone 4  Hereford Heaven Association Holds Its First 'Own' Annual Tour on June 7 and 8  Key Legislators Using Senate Decision to Try to Get President to Sign Case Labor Disputes Measure  By CLAIR JOHNSON  U ASHINGTON, June I.—(AP)—President Truman complained today that the senate had emasculated his emergency strike control bill, and key legislators used even that as a lever to try to get his signature on the controversial Case labor disputes measure.   1  To get the modified senate version. these lawmakers said, the president first must approve the Case bill and its far-reaching, long-range curbs on union activities.  T hat was not the prediction of democratic chiefs-who said there still was a chance of stiffening the emergency bill.  It came from leaders of a bipartisan bloc which had controlled labor legislation in the house in recent months. One of them, Rep. Allen (R-Ill.), made this typical comment:  “The emergency bill, as passed by the senate, still is powerful. It gives the president enough authority. We won’t act on it immediately, but if he signs the Case bill w f e will send him the emergency legislation”  Senate Passes Weakened Bill  The senate passed the toned-down emergency bill early this morning after discarding a provision to draft workers who struck in government-operated industries or plants. The legislation went back to the house for approval or rejection of senate changes.  Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex) said the house w’ould not take any conclusive action either way before Thursday. Leaders of both parties have agreed to postpone controversial decisions until then.  I he said, because of primary elections in some states during the coming week.  Truman Disapprove*  Mr. Truman voiced sharp disapproval of the way the senate had treated his bill in a conver-sation with Senator Radcliffe (D-Md). The senator was one of a crowd of Marylanders who welcomed the president to the eastern shore to receive an honorary degree from Washington college at Chestertown.  Radcliffe told him the senate had worked past midnight last  pass the  sfrike measure. Mr. Truman replied that he regarded the result as an emasculation.  As passed by the senate, the  emergency bill:  1. Gives the president authority to seize and operate industries where shutdowns occur, if he decides continued operation is essential to public health, security and national economy. He would proclaim a national emergency existed.  2. Requires both employers and union officials to take “affirmative action, in a lockout or strike once the presidential proclamation has been issued. Violators would be subject to a $5,000 fine a year in jail or both.  Use of Injunctions  3. Declares unlawful a continuation of a strike or lockout against the government, and gives the attorney general power to get from the courts injunctions to enforce this provision.  4. Provides that employes who refuse to return to work after the president's proclamation would lc^e collective bargaining rights. (The senate struck out a section which also would have taken away seniority rights.)  As passed by the senate the measure would continue in effect no longer than June 30, 1947.  The house passed the bill last Saturday, 306 to 13. exactly as requested by Mr. Truman and within two hours after he asked for it But under rules in effect then, members had to accept or spurn the entire measure. They had no  comment on Ryan’s remarks.  Last night Bridges and Curran accused President Truman of “fir  st uke - prevention conferences when he said he would use the army, navy and coast guard, if necessary, to operate the ships if the strike occurs.  Wage and hour negotiations are being held under censorship of the labor department on the workers’ demand for a 40-hour week and higher pay.  -a--  Big Blaze Damages Warehouse af 0. (.  escaping refrigeration unite, fought a stubborn blaze for more than an hour today at the Monty Frow company’s cold storage warehouse.  Monty Frow, owner of the firm w'hich is a hotel and restaurant supply company, said that contents of the building, mostly frozen meats, fruits and vegetables were worth from $25,000 to $30,-000. Fire Chief G. R. McAlpine, who estimated damage to the building and contents at $10,000, said he believed a large part of the merchandise was undamaged. He said the cause of the blaze had not been determined.  -a-  ITHACA. N. Y..

The first annual Hereford Heaven Association tour will be held Friday and Saturday of this w'eek with 12 ranches in the area being visited. Ranchers in this area have been making plans for this tour for a number at w'eeks.  The tour of Hereford Heaven w-ill not actually be the first tour of this area because some breeders remember that the first tour of what is now Hereford Heaven occurred about 15 years ago.  The first stop in was made at the L. H. Duncan ranch, now the Colbert ranch near Mill Creek. Mr. Duncan arranged with the people of the town of    Mill    Creek    I  to put on a fish    fry for the    group     1   and the meal was served in one of the business buildings.  Many Changes Since  There have    been    so    many  changes made    since    that    first  tour that anyone who made it would not recognize the same arca that w ill be toured by hun  dreds of people Friday and Saturday of this week.  Heretofore, Hereford Heaven has been toured only as a part of the Oklahoma Hereford Heaven Breeders Association, but past tours will not compare with the one planned for this year.  “This annual tour has been of inestimable educational value in the cause of promoting better Herefords in this part of the state. I feel this event has been a dominating factor in interesting people in this breed, not only in Hereford Heaven but over the state,” Dean Blizzard of Oklahoma A. and M. College said.  It was the annual state tour  Full Two-Day Schedule  A full two day schedule has been prepared for visitors at the first annual Hereford Heaven Association tour. Starting near Ardmore Friday morning, the tour will end late Saturday afternoon. Twelve ranches in Hereford Heaven will be visited during the tour.  Ranch managers who are preparing meals for the touring group are planning to feed no fewer than 1,000 persons at each of the meals served at ranches.  Officials of the H e r ef o r d Heaven Association explain that there are many reasons for visiting Hereford Heaven. “Here you w ill visit the various ranches and  (Continued on Page IO Column 6)  TH* PESSIMIST  Or Bota Blank*.
