For the entire county, registra- tion for the first primary of July 2 ended Friday at midnight. June 23, which is today, opens the registration period for the run- off primary July 23. That left a small gap-r-but wait! Ada voters cast their ballots July 2 on members of the new city council and on July 14 in the run-off el oction for council places, and as registration begins 30 days and closes 10 days before an elec- tion the period for that July 16 council race run-off started back somewhere about June 15 or 16 and continues until July 6. So there was an overlap of registration after nil. Unless some special election bobs up between the July 23 run- off vote and the general election of Nov. 5, the registrars won't have to slay so close to home un- til 30 days Nov. 5. Registration in the city of Ada has been almost continuous since early was the city primary in March, followed three weeks later by the city run-off primary for election of city com- missioners.' Then there was the vote in May the voters freeholder board's recommendations for a charter change. So, for Ada especially, this has been a registering, votin' year sure enough. -------------k------------ We wonder what made people ring doorbell', before bath tubs for 'folks to sit in.

Time was pressing the con- forces. Price control expires at midnight, Sunday, June 30, un- less congress acts to extend it and the president approves the legis- lation. May Not Reach Agreement The four points still in dispute are fundamental in character. Senator Downey one of the conferees, told a reporter thnl "an irripasse still is possible." Still to be settled are: 1. How long to extend OPA. The senate voted for one year, the house for nine months. 2. Whether to end price con- trols June 30 on meat, poultry and dairy products, tobacco and petroleum, as provided by the senate. The house did not specifi- cally take controls off any com- modity. 3.

But as they tightened belts for a week of heavy sessions on those and other "must" meas- ures, their estimates of how the voters will take it varied right along with their voting plans. Pressure. High On OPA Bill The fight over OPA Is regarded as the most significant politically. Public interest in this has reach- ed a near-fever pitch and terrific pressure is being put on both key congressmen and the president regarding the outcome. Also on tap are final votes on a batch of vital appropriation bills and on legislation extending wartime authority for federal al- location of scarce materials. The pressure is on in all these cases because the present laws run out at the end of the fiscal year, June 30.
