Dodds, Average Net May Paid Circulation 8271 Memb.-r: Audit Bureau of Circulation THE ADA EVENING NEWS 43rd Year—No. 60 ADA, OKLAHOMA, MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY Major Parlies In Claims Of Voting Edge Bottle Lines Across 17 Stotes in Struggle for Control of Next Congress By JACK BELL AP Political Reporter WASHINGTON, June 24, CP)— Major political battle lines were thrown across 17 states today as democrats disputed republicans claims of November victories in congressional and sentorial races. Senator Lucas (111), chairman of the democratic senatorial campaign committee, countered an assertion by GOF National Chairman Carroll Reece that the republicans would win ll senate seats with the contention that the democrats not only will save those places but will knock republicans off in six other areas. It was the biennial claiming contest in which neither side will admit any weakness. But conflicting assertions about the outcome in some of the states lent added weight to the results of partv decisions this week. GOP Row In N. Dakota Lucas, for instance, contended that the democrats will have a chance to pick up a senate scat in North Dakota in November as the result of an intra-party GOP row to be climaxed at the polls there tomorrow. The voters then will pass judgment on the comeback effort of Gerald P. Nye. former archenemy of the late President Roosevelt's foreign policies, in a special election to fill the senatorial vacancy created by the death of Denv>crat John Moses. Lucas said he believes that P. W. Lanier, Jr., of Fargo, the democratic candidate, has “a good chance” to win in a three-cornered race with Nye and Senator Milton R. Young, the regular republican nominee. Nye, whose political enemies have labelled him an “isolationist,’’ was credited by many observers with a chance to win. Lanier Record At Stake Also on tap in North Dakota tomorrow is a GOP primary contest between Senator William Danger, bidding for another six-year term, and J. B. Bridston, Grand Forks insurance man. The latter has been critical of what he called Danger’s “isolationist” record in voting against the United Nations charter, the British loan and extension of the draft. Republicans, meanwhile, were claiming a chance at a Maryland senate seat as a possible result of today's balloting in a democratic primary where Senator George L. Radcliffe is battling for renomination with Gov. Herbert R. O'Conor. ^ Maryland GOP Hopeful The republican reasoning is that if Maryland democrats become embittered in their primary, the GOP candidate would have a better chance in November. On the other hand. Lucas said he feels confident that Indiana democrats will nominate at their convention tomorrow a senatorial candidate who can whip William E. Jenner. The latter was picked by the republicans last week at a convention where Senator Raymond E Willis, the incumbent, withdrew. Besides North Dakota, Maryland and Indiana, 14 other states were marked doubtful areas in the November elections bv’ counterclaims of the two oar*ios. In addition to Maryland, Reece recently listed Massachusetts, Rhode Island, West Virginia, New Mexico. Nevada, Utah, Washington, Missouri. Wyoming and Montana as states in which the republicans might gain one seat and thus advance to control of the senate. They now have only 39 members, compared with the democrat’s 56 and one progressive. Contending that the democrats will hold their own in the stales Reece mentioned, Lucas said he expects republicans to be victims of the November voting in s^n-torial races rn California, Wisconsin. Connecticult and New Jersey, in addition to North Dakota and Indiana. Time to Swim U.N.

Airlines Present Applications To (AA for Hearing WASHINGTON, June 24.-(ZP) —The civil aeronautics board heard arguments today on the applications of 32 airlines to establish new routes in the southwest. Most of the new service would be provided by feeder lines in Texas and Oklahoma. Some service also would be added in Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri. The board will review recommendations which its examiner, Thomas L. Wienn, made several weeks ago on the applications. Much of the morning session was devoted to a review by Howard C. Westwood, American Airlines attorney, of that company’s request to establish a one-carrier service between Houston and Los Angeles, California. Wrenn refused to approve Americans’ request for an extension of its present Chicago - Dallas route on to Houston. American already has a route between Dallas and Los Angeles, so passengers from Houston would fly to California via the north Texas city. Designation of Houston by the CAB as an international aerial gateway to Latin America makes it all the more important that the Texas coastal city be given a one-carrier service to the west coast, Westwood added. He explained that at present air passengers from Houston to California must use the planes of at least two or three companies. *------ Prison Privileges Among privileges allowed prisoners in certain British prisons are weekly dancing classes, animal pets, fitted gymnasiums, educational talks by radio, and classes in shorthand and foreign languages. > Ordinance No. 760 includes the Norris Hills addition and is located east of the former city limits.

CARPENTER NEW YORK, June 24.—</P) — Poland today lost a hard-fought battle for an immediate and complete United Nations break with Franco Spain. The vote was 7 to 4 against Poland’s resolution. Only Poland, Russia, France and Mexico supported the resolution calling for a diplomatic break when a vote was taken shortly after the security council met.

Plan on New Polio Ward al Hospital OKLAHOMA CITY, June 24.— (ZP)—A new polio ward in the crippled children’s hospital here is being planned, Paul Fessler, administrator for University hospital, announced after the national foundation for infantile paralysis assured the state $7,500 toward operating expenses. The contribution was made after Gov. Robert S. Kerr wrote Basil O’Connor of the national foundation the state is “again threatened with an epidemic of polio.” Kerr asked the foundation to underwrite $30,000 for the ward. The $7,500, officials said, is expected to be followed by other grants. * N Polio cases were scattered over the state, officials said, except in Ottawa county where there are now nine cases. (lean Up Drive Continues Southeast, Port of Northeast Sections Will Be Covered Tuesday The collection of trash within the city limits was still underway Monday morning with six trucks and two wagons expected to be on hand to assist in the hauling. * Collection was completed in two sections of town last week. The northwest section and negro town was covered. Part of the southwest portion of town was left to be covered Monday morning and from there the collection will advance to the northeast district then to the southeast area Tuesday morning, according to Mayor Luke B. Dodds. The mayor is personally overseeing the work and is assisting in the clean up campaign that is being conducted in an effort to control flies and prevent infantile Paralysis. DDT spray units will start spraying Thursday morning as scheduled unless it is raining, which would make it useless from the standpoint of getting rid of flies. Local officials of the clean up campaign are hoping that it doesn’t rain too quickly after the spraying has started as the DDT spray will be effective several weeks unless washed off by rain. Mayor Dodds said that the clean up drive will progress much faster Monday and Tuesday of this week as the men are accustomed to doing the jobs they are performing. When the spray trucks stop to spray a garbage can, the DDT that is being sprayed will be under 600 pounds pressure, which is said to make the spray most effective. The charges were turned over to a sub-committee and the work of that group was washed out last week by a Ru ssian veto of a compromise resolution. Dr. Lange today called upon the security councl to reconsider Poland’s proposal for an immediate break.
