State Making Wheat Record Rains, Perfect Harvest Weather Send Crop Soaring To Ail-Time Mark By The Associated Press Tine red earth of Oklahoma will yield its greatest wheat crop in history in this year of threaten- ed world food shortage, the U. S. department of agriculture pre- dicted Thursday. An all-time record crop of bushels of the needed grain was indicated on the basis of a special June 15 condition re- port, the department said. This figure compares with the all-time record yield of bushels produced in 1944. Far Over 10-Year Average The estimate soared far above the ten year average- produc- tion for the it by more than bushels._The average, for through bushels. And, said Federal Statistician K. D.

"On June 14 about forty per cent of the state crop had been harvested and it was easy to make this predicition." 1 Some Fields "Terrific" Blood estimated the average yield per acre at bushels but added that some fields had made unbelievable crops. In one small two-acre field, 92 bushels of wheat were harvested and yields of 35 and 45 bushels per acre have been numerous, Blood added. The federal statistician said rains, which fell when needed, and perfect harvest weather, which came at just the right time, pulled the wheat crop out of the ditch to which early pre- dictions had consigned it. In the period from June 1 to 15, alone, the estimate of produc- tion climbed bushels.

SHAWNEE, Okla., June sniiill boys burying a supply of forbidden fireworks en- countered a keg of small change taken in a Texas bank robbery and Jed to its recovery, the FBI reported today. D. A. Bryce. agent in charge of the FBI at Oklahoma City, said the money had not yet been counted but consisted of a nail keg full of nickels, dimes, quar- ters and half-dollars. Bryce said the money was iden- tified through a wrapper as part of the loot taken from the First State bank of Morton, Tex., Sept. -5, 1945. Were Forbidden Fireworks Bryce gave the following ac- count of the recovery: One of the: Dixon Lee Lowther, 8, sonv of Mrs. Faye Lowther. had. been forbidden, along with a ten-year-old com- panion, to buy fireworks before the fourth of July. The two boys pooled their re- sources, however, and bought the fireworks. They decided they had better hide them so they went behind a garage at the home of the Low- 1her boy and started digging a hole. They struck the keg and the Lowther boy ran into the back door of liis home, crying: "Mama, give me a stew keltic, because I have struck a gold mine."

House, Senate To Vole Soon Colls for 18-Year Olds to Be Exempted, 19-Year Oldi To Be Inducted By EDWIN B. HAAK1NSON WASHINGTON, Juno slam-hang congressional struggle over peacetime drafting of teen-agers subsided near a compromise finish today with 19- year olds oiv.'p more subject to call and youths of 18 exempt. Only the usual house and sen- ate approval of the hard-fought conference agreement was need- ed to assure a nine months exten- sion of selective service beyond the end of this month. Speaker Ray-burn (D-Tcx) saw a slight chance the house might act late today if two pending bills could be cleared, but it appeared more probable the measure would not be reached before next Mon- day or Tuesday. Floor Promised A floor battle against accepting tlie i.'ompromisi' was promised by Hep. Short lone member of the 14 senate and house con- ferees whose signature did not appear on the final compromise. "There is no need at all to ex- tend the wartime Short told reporters. "I am unalterably opposed to taking any teen-agers and I also favor holding up all inductions a few months as previously voted by the house ma- jority." Despite Short's last ditch oppo- sition, congressional leaders ex- pected both the senate and house to approve work the conference report and send it on to the White House well ahead of the June 30 deadline when the present stop- gap draft extension expires. Pay Increase Approved Along with ihe draft act exten- sion, the conferees also approved a pay increase plan for all men and officers of all the armed ser- vices. Like exemption of 18 year olds, the pay hike represented a victory for the house conferees who had insisted upon a separate bill pro- viding higher salaries in the arm- ed forces. The senate originally incorpor- ated pay increases in its draft ex- tension measure. The increases were limited to enlisted personnel with biggest jumps for army pri- vates, corporals, and sergeants along with corresponding lowest graders of oiher services. This was aimed at attracting volun- teers and thus reducing the need for drafted men. However, the conferees decided to-go along with the house idea of a separate giving a 50 per cent pay boost to the bottom en- listed grades, and providing grad- uated increases for other non- commissioned and commissioned personnel up fo generals. The new pay scales would army privates and navy appren- tice seamen a month instead of the present S50, while generals and admirals at the top of the ladder would draw as compared with the present More For Two FUnki Only important change mado in the separate house plan was to up the increase for army captains and navy lieutenants from 10 per cent to 15 per cent. Chairman Klbert Thomas CD- Utah) of the senate military com- mittee said the overall increases will add an estimated annually to taxpayers' bills. The senate pay boosts would have cost an additional The bill will meet all manpow- er needs of the war department, Thomas predicted, adding that it should please those who contend peacetime conscription was "ne- cessary to support our foreign policy and carry out our com- mitments."
