Brunei- of Wichita Fulls, Tex., has been appointed an instructor of chemistry at the University of Tulsa, President C. I. Pontius announced. WASHINGTON, June price of that elusive loaf of I bread advanced a penny today with OPA approval. The increase is effective imme- diately, along with a price boost of one qent a dozen for bread roils. The higher prices apply to all kinds of bread except rye, which went up two cents a loaf April 30. Prices are 'being raised, OPA said, because bakers' production costs have climbed as a result of a 25 per cent cut in the amount of flour they may use. The pro- duction was ordered to help 'meet relief requirements. OPA said before the flour cut, bakers made a "small profit" by spreading their costs over, a large output of bread loaves. It added that the -effect of trimming production has been a substantial increase in the cost per loaf. Can't Continue Old Price For this reason, OPA said, bak- ers "no longer are in a position to continue selling at prices 'frozen' at March 1942 levels." The price increase, the agency continued, "is designed to assure consumers of a's adequate a sup- ply of bread and bread-type rolls as is consistent with the presi- dent's famine emergency pro- gram." An OPA official estimated that actually the cost of bread now is about two cents more than it was prior to June 1, when the agriculture department ordered the weight of loaves cut by 10 per FIVE CENTS THE COPY Bevin Says Britain May Turn Down Proposals on Palestine Because Commission's Idea of Allowing Jews To Enter Immediately Would Require More Troops at Onet BOURNEMOUTH, Eng., June Secre- tary Ernest Bevin indicated today the possibility that Eng- land would reject the British-American commission's recom- mendation that Jews be allowed to enter Palestine immediately. Bevin spoke at lht> annual labor party conference on his conduct of British foreign policy. He de- clared: "If we put Jews in Pal- estine tomorrow, 1 would have to put another division of British troops there. I am not prepared to do it. Put Guns Away "I must suy to the Jews nnd Arabs: Please put your Runs away. Don't blow up the British Tommy who is quite innocent in this business.

Two Ways Permitted On bread, producers are per- mitted-to put today's-one-cent in- crease .into effect by raising the price, reducing the weight fur- ther, or by a combination of both. On rolls, only a price increase is authorized. Excluded from the. one-cent in- crease are bakers who ha.ve in- creased the weight of their loaves and correspondingly increased prices since last March 15. One Jap Officer Has Escaped Trfal Terauchi, Who Headed Jap Forces in Southern Regions, Dies in Jahore SINGAPORE, June Field Marshal Count Juichi Ter- auchi, 77, former Japanese war minister and more recently su- preme commander of all Japan- ese forces in the southern regions, died of a cerebral hemorrhage to- day at his quarters in Johore, British southeast Asia headquar- ters announced. Count Terauchi commanded the Japanese armies in North China in the early stages of Jap- an's campaign of conquest there. He was identified in 1944 as Gen. MacArthur's adversary in the Philippines. In 1942, Emperor Hirohito com- mended Count Terauchi and Ad- miral Isoroku Yair.amoto for their victory at Corregidor. Ter- auchi served as war minister in the Hirota cabinet from March 9, 1936 to Jan. 23, He had been in ill health for more than a year and his cere- monial surrender to Admiral Lord Mountbatten was delayed from September to last year. Fined for Being Drunk In Public Court Feud Simmers Now No Congressional Action Likely This Summer; Eventual Probe Possible By J. FRANK TRAGLE WASHINGTON, .June (Jf) The sizzling supreme court feud appeared likely to simmer nlong through the hot summer months without congressional in- tervention. Chairman Hatton W. Sumners (D-Texas) said today he will place Justice Jackson's cabled Wast against Justice Black before nis house judiciary committee to- morrow but that he personally1 is disinclined toward any immedi- ate ac'tioh'.

Man Wanted Four Months Asked Sheriff Clyde Kaiser For Ride Frank Billy, who is wanted in Ponlotoc county on two felony charges, got a free ride to jail Monday afternoon when he thumbed a ride with Sheriff Clyde Kaiser. Members of the sheriff's force have been looking for Billy for about four months and every at- templ to arrest him failed. Offi- cers in other states had also been requested to arrest the man. Sheriff Kaiser was in the Sem- inole vicinity Monday and when he started his return trip to Ada he saw a man thumbing a ride toward Ada. The sheriff knew the man be- fore he got his car slopped and when he stopped, he told the man, "Get in, Frank, we have been looking for you." Billy was placed in county jail where he is being held.

FOREST FIRE SPREADING CLIFTON, Ariz., June forest fire that has "burned over acres in eastern Ari- zona still was nut of control today, The fire, the worst of the year in Arizona, started last Thursday on the San Carlos indian reser- vation. Indians from the reserva- tion and 40 fire fighters liave add- ed to the prevoius forces. fers to wait until'Jackson returns from Nuernberg, where he is serving as chief American prose- cutor- of nazi war criminals. The complaining justice, he added, probably would be the chief wit- ness if any de- cided upon. Committee Powers Limited The chairman said he favors a cautious approach because of the unprecedented nature of the ex- i plosion. After all, Sumners said, j the house judiciary committee has l no power of "visitation" on the is it has no-power to check up just to see if everything is going all right. It does have the power of im- peachment, but Sumners asserted that nothing so far indicates that any such draslic action would be justified.. Rep. Michener (R-Mich) indi- cated sympathy with Sumner's view that Jackson should be pres- ent at any investigation, assert- ing "of course, you can't have a wedding without a bride and groom." Two other committee members said they thought an eventual in- quiry would be justified. Clash of Personalities On the other hand, Rep. Celler anotner member of the committee, saicl he didn't see what congress could do about the con- troversy because "it involves only a judge's judgment" of when he should disqualify himself. Celler added that "it appears to be a clash of personalities and I hope the new chief justice will be able to reconcile their differen- ces." Fred M. Vinson's nomination to be chief justice is slated to come before the senate judiciary Com- mittee Friday, but Chairman Mc- Carran (D-Ncv) said he thought the Jackson-Black incident should not figure at that session.

Each truck averages 24 miles a day and average hauling 12 tons of garbage to the incenerator oV to the dump grounds. Just handling that volume of garbage daily is a big job. But ;some residents still are not putting glass and, cans, in sepr axalc _ containers as they have been asked to dp. And some slyly put such materials in the middle of their garbage pails to fool the collectors into dumping it all in together. But, says the mayor, the men now are pretty well on to that trick and i'f necessary will begin NOT taking any garbage in which such materials are found conceal- ed. Another hefp now that the can- ning season is here, says Dodds, will be to drain water from seeds and peelings of watermelon rinds that the city will not have to use gas in addition to burnable garbage to burn such material at the incenerator. Seaman Union Rejects Offer Outran Predicts Long, Bit- ter Strike Unless Work Hours Cut or Pay Boosted Employes Lose In Picketing Case Fail to Get Injunction To Halt Union Picketing Of Their Company OKLAHOMA CITY, June 12, application of 45 em- j ployes for a temporary injunc- tion to halt union picketing of their employer's company has been denied on grounds the court has no 'authority to intervene un- less violence occurs. At a hearing on the petition by employes of the Quick Charge, Inc., Oklahoma City iiig firm, District Judge Lewis R. Morris ruled that under decisions of the U, S. supreme court he has1 no authority to intervene in peacetime picketing. D. I. Johnston, attorney for the plaintiffs, said the case would be carried to highest tribunal for a ruling. An appeal however can- not be 'filed until Judge Morris rules on.an application for a per- manent injunction. The injunction was sought on the plaintiff's charge that their jobs were being jeopardized be- j cause the picket line prevented the company from obtaining sup- plies or shipping their products. By MAX HALL WASHINGTON, June J. Taylor, a spokesman for the ship operators in the threatened maritime strike, re- ported today that the unions in- volved have rejected a new com- promise offer on the work week for seamen. Almost simultaneously. Joseph Curran. president of the CIO Na- tional Maritime union, said "a long and bitter strike" will begin Friday midnight, as scheduled, unless the seamen's work-week is cut or their pn'y boosted, Both appeared before a house labor subcommittee. '.'There is no use kidding our- Curran told a house lab- or subcommittee.' "We are' going to have lo fight to get protection for the seamen, and by god, we will fight." Curran was critical of both President Truman a..d navy offi- cers for statements that the navy would run the ships if the mari- time workers refuse to do so, in a strike set lo begin Friday mid- night. Seamen Not Hopeful "The president's position was not helpful" to negotiations, Cur- ran said. He made a similar ref- erence to navy officials. The labor chief .ul.su snid the seamen were not hopeful, of get- ting any better settlement in the controversy from the government than from the ship operators. Curran said repeatedly that all the -maritime -workers want is "the same consideration as any other citizen" in wages and hour's matters. He said that at present seamen are exempted from fed- eral wage and hour .provisions. Lacked Wartime Protection He also spoke out bitterly against what he called a lack of protection for maritime workers during the war. He said that such workers who were injured received none of the benefits accorded members of the armed forces. At this point, Rep. Buck (R N.Y.) interposed lo say lhat the house merchant marine commit- tee will approve soon a "GI bill of rights for maritime workers." Curran commei.ied that "we have been working for this bill for years and I hope you arc right." By CLAIR JOHNSON WASHINGTON, June 12, The drive for a broad new labor law ran out of gas loday. Advocates parked themselves lo await either (1) public clamor or (2) another major strike crisis before renewing their efforts to get a long-range bill on the sta- tute books. Leaders of the campaign re- ported Ihey are hopeful that a "wave of public reaction" may develop against President Tru- man's velo of the Case bill and the house's refusal to override him. They said that apparently only if such a demand develops, or if a new big tie-up occurs, can they muster the votes to guarantee enactment of a permanent regul- lalory measure this year. These views were expressed to newsmen by both democrat and republican spokesmen for the bi- partisan bloc which supported Ihe Case bill and wants it or some similar legislation enacted soon. They asked that their names not be used. Some of these legislators still favor lying in the Case proposal- with Mr. Truman's emergency strike control measure, which is More details of the latest gov- ernment compromise camp "into the open, nnd it. seemed to be gaining in favor.

Kerr said priorities in the or- ganization of personnel for the all-Oklahoma division should be established "insofar' as practic- able" in relations to the men's combat experience with the 45th or with other outfits to which they were transferred.

The report came from Col. Henry Hutchings, Dallas, the army's southwest division engi- neer, who suggested the change in plan would serve to control flood waters of both rivers with one dam. The Keystone dam, on which a public hearing was held here last March 7, would be located on the Arkansas just downstream from the point at which the Cim- arron flows into it. Hutchings said the Keystone project would replace those at both Mannford and Blackburn. ,-...-._ -fcg_____________________________ Read the News Classified' Ads.
