Election Four Weeks Away And Campaign Still Not Heated Up Warmer Weather, Work of Candidates Due to Stimulate More Interest, If Big Strikes Stay Out of Picture Perhaps returning sunshine will hejp warm up the 1946 campaign which has been slow to show much heat.

SOCIALISTIC GOVERNMENT OF CUBA WINS ELECTION HAVANA, June socialistic government appeared tonight to have won a decisive en- dorsement in Havana in today's national elections as early returns gave the president's choice for the influential mayorality a heavy vote majority over two op- position parly candidates. 5 With the strike situation ap- parently 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 clue to get more attention from stale candidates. County candidates are busy now in their campaigns. Saturday William O. Coe, dem- ocratic candidate for governor, spoke to a group of Pontotoc county voters here on his pro- gram for the governorship. Turner Here Next Friday Next Friday night Roy Turner, oil man-rancher well known throughout this section, will speak in Ada while making the two-day Hereford Heaven As- sociation tour. The schedule of Pontotoc i county rallies continues. These have been attracting good crowds and attention. County Rallies Continue For this week the schedule Tuesday night, June 4, at Fills- town, and Thursday night, June (i, at Lulu. In addition, the Gaar Corner rally which was dispersed by rain last week aftc.-r a large crowd had gathered, will be held on Wednesday night of this week. Much organization and contact work is being done by state can- didates and their supporters, in- cluding those campaigning for congress and other of the higher offices. This week brings another.de- velopment in the pre-election ac- tivities with registration. The registration period of the July 2 vote begins today and continues through June 21.. efficiency and modernization of the city charter under which has operated since 1912 comes to a climax Tuesday of this week when Ada voters ballots on pro- posals 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 govern- ment from the three-commission to the council-manager form. The proposals are the result of study of a freeholders elected in April representing all wards of the city. Broadcast Monday Night Monday night from to 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, con- sulted with many citizens here on their ideas and suggestions for seeking more efficiency in the op- eration of Ada's government. They, submitted their report to thi city commissioners, who in turn .are submittipg the' recom- mendations to the Council Manager The council-manager form they recommend .places final authority in the hands of a council of five each ward and one at serve without pay, The council employes a man- ager who administers the city government through department heads and employes. There is no- turn-over in employes in prospect after any 'election, proponents point out, with a man's tenure an employment of the city depend- ing only on his ability and effi- ciency 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 Grand Jury To Resume Work Monday Recessed After Several Days Work in April With More Investigating Planned Truman Disapproves Senate Action On His Strike Bill 'Sell It and Buy a through him to the council.

While in session, the grand jury inquired into the case of every person imprisoned in the jail of the county and subdivi- sions on a criminal charge. ;The grand jury still has con- siderable work to do because when the jury was recessed the men had several reports' that were not filed. 'As to wilful and corrupt mis- conduct" in office of public offi- cials of the county and its sub- divisions, 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 un.til all of the busi- ness at hand is disposed of.

Smith, president of the As- sociation of Operative Millers, asserted today the entire cereal industry was in a "chaotic con- dition" because, he said, the gov- ernment failed to start accumu- lating a stock pile when it pledg- ed grain shipments abroad. "Approximately 90 per cent of the mills are closed down for lack of wheat and the other 10 per cent are going to be closed soon unless new crop wheat res- trictions are he said in a statement. Asserting he was speaking for the association, which convenes here Monday, he said: "We arc in sympathy and will cooperate in any move to alle- viate suffering, hunger and fam- ine in any country.

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 mari- time leaders said they have re- ceived 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. Joseph P.

Garbage Collection Routes Now Fully Scheduled for Ada plan that will give complete gar- bage collection service to all sec- tions .of Ada. Mayor Lulce B. Dodds has warned a number of citizens that the burnable garbage must be separated from the garbage that will not burn. This .separation process i.s important to the col- lectors as they cannot separate the burnable from the unburn- able material. Garbage collectors are being informed that they do not have to separate the garbage and have been given permission by Mayor Dodds to leave any garbage that is not separated. Collectors make two separate trips gathering' the two kinds of garbage; customers should not complain when either of the two running. Harry Bridges and Joseph Cur- ran, co-chairmen of the CIO group that plans the strike, could not be located immediately for a comment on Ryan's remarks. Last, night Bridges and Cumin accused President Truman of "fir- ing a torpedo" into Washington strike prevention conferences when he said he would use the army, navy and coast guard, if necessary, to operate the ships if the strike occurs.

It came from leaders of a bi- partisan bloc which had con- trolled labor legislation in the house in recent months. One of them, Rep. Allen 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 we will send him the emergency legislation."

Speaker Rayburn (D-Tcx) said the house would not take any conclusive action either way be- fore Thursday.

The first annual Hereford Heaven Association tour will be held Friday and Saturday of this week with 12 ranches in the area being visited. Ranchers in this area have been making plans for this tour for a number of weeks. The tour of Hereford Heaven will not actually be the first tour of this area because 'some breeders remember that the first tour of what is now Hereford Heaven occurred aboirt 15 years ago. The first stop in was-made at the L. H. Duncan ranch, now the Colberl ranch near Mill Creek. Mr. Duncan arranged with the people of the town of Mill Creek to put on a fish fry for the group and was served in one of the business buildings.
