They report more interest and more people in the area tour than usually attend the Oklahoma Hereford Breeders Association tour that takes in most of the southern part of the state. A crowd estimated at about 800 persons had gathered Friday on the progressing tour by the time it reached the third scheduled stop of the day at the Flying L ranch. Earlier in the morning, the Hereford Heaven tour started near Marietta at Mc-Makin’s Lazy K and then progressed to Moss Patterson’s Lazy S ranch. At the first stop, 200 persons gathered to start the tour; others joined the touring party at the Lazy S ranch and the climax of the entire tour was reached at the Flying L where lunch was served. Many Out-of-State Visitors The Flying L ranch was the third of 12 stops planned for visitors from Oklahoma and surrounding states. There were visitors on the tour from Indiana, Colorado, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and other states in addition an English colonel and his wife. The Hereford Heaven tour is one of the principal attractions in this area during the year. It is second only to the annual sales of Hereford Heaven that are held in January. The tour this year is the first for the Association, and officials agreed that there will be more interest next year. At the Flying L ranch, spectators saw 4,500 acres divided into 15 pastures with a variety of grasses such as rye grass, lespedeza, burr clover, native blue stem, yellow hop, gramma, bermuda and others. The ranch is all in pasture except 80 acres, which is in alfalfa. Bill Likin pointed out that he has seven houses, six f>ams, seven wells and 25 earthcm tanks on the ranch. See Choice Pasture Areas______ Spectators were first interested in the nasture areas, which are known as the best in this section of the United States; next the crowd moved to the show bam where various classes of Herefords were shown. At the J. K. Powell ranch that was visited after lunch Friday, Mr. Powell told the touring party that he wanted them to take particular notice of the fine ^aWes. both bulls and heifers. His ranch is located east of Sulphur and he is constantly making improvements about the ranch and with the cattle produced there. The T. G. Wails ranch w r as the second on the schedule for Friday afternoon. There the visitors saw one of the up and coming ranches of the area. Spectators were as well pleased writh what they saw at the Wails ranch as are Mr. and Mrs. Wails. At the Colvert ranch still farther south of the Wails ranch, another growing ranch was visited. When the tour reached the Roy Turner ranch at 4:30 p. rn., Jim McClellan, ranch manager, told the people not to get out of their cars. Tour Turner Ranch in Cars The caravan of cars toured the ranch and saw various groups of cattle. At each stop a loud speaker was used by McClellan to tell the many breeders interesting facts about the cattle they were seeing. All ages of cattle, and cattle used for various purposes were seen. At one stop, four bulls were seen. Al Darlow, connected with Oklahoma A. and M. college and secretary of the Hereford Heaven association, said that it was seldom that two international and one national championship bulls could be seen at a glance.

Yeor Unless More Added This is a votin’ year for Ada citizens. Already they have voted in the city primary and run-off election, elected a set of freeholders to revise the city charter and last Tuesday voted to accept the recommendations of that board for a switch over to the council-man-ager form of government. The way things look for the coming months voters here are only halfway with their balloting —four down and three to go. The primary election involving county, state and congressional offices, comes July 2, at which time also the primary election on council members for the revised city set-up will be held. The run-off for the city council will be July 14: the general election comes in November. And of the folks decided on any special undertakings before the year is out, there could easily be another vote scheduled in this election year. Britons Celebrate In Victory Jubilee London Overflows With Millions There for Tremendous Spectacle LONDON, June 8.—(^—Britons. overflowing by the millions into London, celebrated the empire's formal victory day today with biggest jubilee since the accession to the throne of King George VI. The foremost spectacle—a nine mile long procession of military might and civilian defense typify mg Allied unity in the war— drew ovations from the great throngs for the royal family, members of the labor government, Winston Churchill, combat commanders, and plain fighting men and women. The unity of the occasion was marred, however, by the absence of official Soviet, Yugoslav and Polish participation. Those governments had said earlier that they would not send contingents. But a small group of Polish airmen marched on its own with the RAF and the flags of Russia, Yugoslavia and Poland flew with those of other Allied nations along the mall. Small detachments of U. S. airborne troops, bluejackets and marines marched in the procession and a handful of American fliers led the air forces of other nations. Gen. Joseph T. McNar-ney. Adm. R. Kent Hewett, and Brig Gen. F. A. Hart, representing the U. S. army, navy and marines. led the motorcade of Allied commanders.

The AFL Bailors union of the Pacific halted a strike vote and began talking wage-hour issues with West Coast shipowners.

Full announcement of how tickets can be obtained will be made Monday. The filming of “Home in Oklahoma” starts Monday morning at the Flying L ranch near Davis. It is estimated that two weeks will be required for the actual ‘shooting’ of the picture in this area before the cast returns to hollywood to complete the finishing touches. Come and Watch Filming Bill Likins has invited the public to visit the Flying L ranch and catch a glimpse of the picture during the filming. In addition to Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Gabby Hayes and 'others will star in the picture. Most of the cast and equipment has arrived in Oklahoma and will be at the Flying L ranch Monday. The filming will be done on the Flying L and Turner ranches. Dougherty will be the town “Hereford Heaven” and Scullin will be the site of some filming when shots taken at a railroad station are necessary, according to production Manager Eddie White. Makes Hereford Tour “Roy Rogers, can you ride Trig-;er backward,” was one of the irst queries directed at the western star when he joined the Hereford Heaven tour at the Flying L ranch Friday morning. A woman on the outer edge of crowd that gathered around Rogers was heard to say, “ain’t he purty!” She went on to say that it was the first time that she had ever had a chance to see her favorite movie actor. The famous Hereford cattle of Hereford Heaven had to share the spotlight Friday with the Republic Picture star, who was the center of attraction most of the day. Oldsters In Autograph Line, Too Autograph seekers were numerous and all of them were not youngsters. Many adults Took their turn in line to get the famous “Roy Rogers and Trigger” written on a piece of paper. Anything from a five dollar bill to a scrap of paper was used to get the autograph. Only one time during the day did Roy Rogers come forth witn a song and that was at the Turner ranch when he joined the Flying L Quartet in a number Several hundred children fought for places in line in the moving crowd to see Roy Rogers. After he left, there were several whimpers, “where is he, mama, where is he? I didn’t get to see him.” Rogers left the scene of the political speaking sooner than he had expected because the crowd of youngsters were all but trampling him underfoot. -a- Set Blame For Hotel Fire CHICAGO, June 8—(£>)—City investigators into the La Salle hotel fire that took 60 lives tentatively blamed it today on “crossed wires” behind a false ceiling in the Silver Lounge off the lobby. --Ii- Greater returns for amount invested.

The mediators dropped the proposal into negotiations between East Coast ship operators and the committee for maritime unity, which is bargaining for the big CIO National Maritime union and six allied unions. Neither the men who operate the ships nor those who man them showed any inclination to accept the plan as a complete solution to the issue of working hours—the biggest barrier in the way of an agreement. They took no official, public stand. And negotiations continued. But union spokesman said the proposal ignores their fundamental demand, for a cut in the 56-hour week at sea. One said privately the strike would not be called off until there was some modification. — Operators Stand Pat Ship operators have been standing pat on 56 hours. They have contended they can’t reduce the work wack and still meet competition under the resultant increase in costs. While taking no immediate stand on the proposals, the committee for maritime unity announced that its co-chairmen, Joseph Curran and Harry Bridges, along with President Joseph P. Belly of the CIO Radio Operators union, will meet Monday with CIO President Philip Murray. Murray will be brought up to date on negotiations. Curran is president of the National Maritime union and Brides is head of the CIO Longshoremen and Warehousemen. Latin Americans ‘Go Along** Latin American Maritime unions have reached a decision not to handle United States ships if this government seizes them “to break the June 15 strike,” Lewis Goldblatt, CMU secretary said. Similar decisions also have been made by the French and New Zealand Maritime unions a-gainst handling U. S. merchant ships should they be manned by American armed forces in event of seizure. Assistant Secretary of Labor, John W. Gibon’s news conference today was largely taken up with questions and comments of reporters disgruntled at the decree of secrecy surrounding the maritime negotiations. Reporters contended the labor department had clamped on a “gag.” One of them said an “iron curtain” had been erected around the negotiations, that now and then Reconversion Director John Snyder poked his head through and reported it was “dark”, and that the press had no way of knowing whether he was right. Gibson, backed by Edgar L. Warren, chief of the conciliation service, and several mediators, denied there was any gag. He said all parties had agreed to secrecy—although the labor de- Truman Veto Of Case Bill Is Expected Has Announced Special Message for Wednesday On Labor Legislation Bv CLAIR JOHNSON WASHINGTON, June 8, UP>— House leaders alerted members today to be on hand for a special message from President Truman next week, and Chairman Sabath (D-Ili.) of the house rules committee said he expects it to be a veto of the Case labor disputes bill. Sabath would not make a flat prediction but said his idea of what is coming is based on a conversation he had with the chief executive. House Democratic Leader McCormack of Massachusetts told newsmen, however, that he had “no positive knowledge” of what the president will do. McCormack would say only that he has advised members to be on hand Tuesday and Wednesday in case “any veto messages*' are received. He added that “I hope the veto will come.” Truman To Explain Stand At the White House, Presidential Secretary Charles G. Ross confirmed reports that Mr. Truman would send congress a labor legislation message explaining whatever stand he takes on the Case measure. Ross told newsmen the president will make his position known in a message “whether or not he signs the bill.” Ross reported that the chief executive was staying at his desk today to work on important matters, principally the Case proposal. It has been Mr. Truman's recent practice to leave early Saturday on week-end cruises on his yacht. Bill’s Restrictions Severe The Case bill, as it now stands, passed the senate May 25 and the house May 29. The president must act on it before midnight Wednesday or it will become law. The legislation does this: 1. Creates a federal mediation board, with power to ban strikes or lockouts for 60 days while it deliberates. 2. Denies job rights to any employes halting work during this “cooling off period. 3. Makes unions and management both liable to damage suits for nonobservance of contract. 4. Carries other far-reaching restrictions on union activity, including bans on secondary boycotts and interference with transfer of goods in interstate commerce.

Road from Lula To Stonewall Taken Into Stale System The highway commission has taken into the state system a road from Stonewall to Lula, extending Highway 61 from its present terminus at Stonewall to a connection at Lula with State High-Jway 48.

Tillman County Agent S. E. Lewis announced harvest in his section was nearest completion with 70 per cent of the wheat in bins Friday night. Cotton, Comanche, Jackson and Harmon counties were reported well along with harvest by the Oklahoma AAM extension division. Adequate supplies of combines, trucks and workers were reported in the area. Weather permitting, needs for additional machines and men may develop in parts of the wheat belt by the middle of next week, the extension division pointed out. Meanwhile, in Kansas the wheat harvest w r as getting underway with a prediction that a pinch might be felt with combining going on simultaneously in Oklahoma and Kansas. W. O. Stark, farm labor supervisor at Great Bend, Kas., said it appeared the harvest would open in a large area of Oklahoma and Kansas at the same time, creating a problem of distributing of labor and machines. “Our job is to get the surplus labor to areas of need.” The majority of southern Kansas counties expect to have the harvest under way June IO to 15, although some cutting already has started. highway commission held on Monday, June 3, the commission voted to take onto the state highway system approximately 9 miles of new road beginning at Stonewall and extending north 3 miles, thence east approximately 6 miles to the intersection of SH 48. The commission took this action in response to your request of March I, 1946. Proper notices will bt' sent to the division engineer at Ada, notifying him that this mileage has been taken onto the system. Yours sincerely. Ben T. Childers, Chairman. This means that Highway 61 now starts at the intersection with Highway 13 northwest of the Bebee oil fields, goes south by Vanoss to Roff, east from Roff to Highway 99 just north of Pittstown, two miles south and then east to Jesse. From Jesse it goes north to Stonewall, and the new designation will connect with the highway north and south through Lula. It is, hoped eventually to bring it west from Allen by way of Francis and intersect Highway 99 about seven miles north of Ada. The ram jet engine has been flown only in pilotless experiments and has not yet been installed in an airplane. The tests have been conducted with the “stovepipe” hurtling through the air on its own, after being boosted to working sneed by rockets. Flight speeds, characteristics and technical data were radioed back from the engine in flight to the researchers conducting the experiments through a complicated electronic “telemetering” method. Minority Committee Report Charges Means Death Sentence for Real Control WASHINGTON, June 8. The bill which would extend price control a year past its June 30 expiration date will be called up in the senate Monday and Majority Leader Barkley, who opposes several of the amendments curtailing OPA powers, said ho hopes to bring the measure to a vote by Thursday. Four dissenting senators estimated today that revisions in the price control law recommended by a majority of the senate banking committee would cost consumers nearly $8,000,000,000 tho first year. And indirect costs, they contended, would dwarf that figure. They declared that a year’s spiral of inflation could easily result in a 50 per cent general pnco rise which would cut in half tho value of $145,000,000,000 in wartime savings of individuals and businesses. In a tart minority report on tho price control extension bill, banking Committee Chairman Wagner (D.-N.Y.) and Senators Downey (D.-Calif.), Taylor (D.-Idaho) and Mitchell (D.-Wash ) declared that changes voted by a majority of the 19-member group write a “death sentence for effective price, wage and rent stabilization.” Call Bill Dangerous “It is our considered judgment,” they said, “that adoption of the bill as reported would bo as dangerous to the economic safety of the country as the immediate expiration of the existing laws.” Wagner. Downey, Taylor and Mitchell blasted furiously at tho committee’s proposal to lift price controls from meat, poultry and dairy products the end of this month. Dollar Value Involved “We think it folly,” they said. “to suppose that the stability of the dollar will be maintained if price controls have to be taken off more than 50 per cent, in dollar terms, of the nation’s food products at a time w f hen pressures are acute on the prices of meat, milk, butter and many other food products. “We do not see how this can be done and effective control retained over the rest of the economy, especially when a number of other amendments weaken the administrator’s ability to prevent unnecessary price increases.” If the dollar’s purchasing power is not maintained, they de- Developed under the code name " 15 , "“‘"ft"“r.

In reporting the legislation to the senate, the committee upheld recommendations of its subcommittee which held hearings on the house passed legislation. A member said the vote, in executive session. w*as 13 to 9. Senator Thomas (D-Okla.J told a reporter the only amount the committee left in the bill for the pipe develop a terrific thrust. Because it takes oxygen from the air, unlike the V-2 robot bomb engine which has to carry its own, it could pack a heavier explosive punch or have a longer range, the navy explained. Tile main disadvantage of the “stovepipe” is that it works at high speeds only. Catapults or auxiliary rockets are used to boost it ud to its efficient operating speed. OK Renews Fight On Denco Service Goes to State Court Opposing Atoka-O.C. Run OKLAHOMA CITY. June 8 — (SP)—The Oklahoma Transportation Co., for the second time in six weeks, today took its fight against a new Atoka to Oklahoma City service authorized Denco Bus Lines by the corporation commission to the state supreme court. Attorneys for the transportation firm filed a petition in error attacking the action of the commission in April, when a certificate of convenience and necessity was issued Denco authorizing passenger service from Atoka to on their savings to buy goods at an ever-increasing rate. They added: “Inedorably the law of supply and demand will blow the price bubble up further and further until at length it will burst when pricked by a buyers* strike or spectators’ panic.” Foresee Wage Dispute The report predicted that adoption of the majority’s amendments would re-open wage disputes, force the decontrol of grain and doom the famine relief program of overseas grain shipments. Foreshadowing the general trend of next week’s debate, the report hit hard at two other proposals in addition to the meat-poultry-dairy decontrol. They said a group of amendments offering special price advantages to the textile trade and removing an OPA order for the production of low priced clothing would cost consumers at least $1,250,000,000. They set $500,000,000 as the probable cost of another amendment forbidding OPA to require dealers to absorb part of the price increases granted producers of such things as automobiles, radios, household appliances and farm implements. power administration was $100,- Oklahoma Ci*> through Tecumseh, Ada and Norman.
