Average Nel May Paid Circulation 8271 Mcmb.-r: Audit Bureau of Circulation THE ADA EVENING NEWS FINAL EDITION 43rd 02 ADA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 26, 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY Political Races Gaining More Attention Candidates Speaking Nightly, Making Picas To Voters of Oklahoma IIy The Associated Tress Retiring Secretary of State Frank C. Carter, has called upon his suporters .n campaigns of the past 32 years to vote for Dixie Gilmer for governor. The 83-year old veteran state official, who this year failed to make a state race for the first time since 1914. took the stump to urge Gilmer's election as a champion of the right." Carter characterized Gilmer as ''a sound lawyer plain as an old shoe with honesty of the Andrew Jackson, Abe Lincoln and asserted that if elected governor the Tulsa prosecutor would drive out of office men with bad intent. Want Public Debate At the same time the Tulsan renewed his efforts to bring about a public debate with H. C. Jones and Roy J. Turner on "the real issue and the only issue of this campaign, which is honest and businesslike administration of state government." His telegram proposing that he meet the two opposing candidates in Oklahoma City Thursday night WHS answered by Turner with the observation that "the people of Oklahoma City know how 1 stand on corruption in office from my record, private and official." add- ing that he thought it unnecessary to change his own speaking sched- ule to meet Gilmer. Simultaneously democratic State Chairman H. 1. Hinds is- sued a denial at Tahlequah of knowledge of any "widespread criticism of the activity" of dis- trict and county party officials in the primary campaign. Hinds Makes Denial His denial was in reply to State Senattir Robert Burns who last week recalled his charges against the state central committee in the 1943 primaries alleging favorit- ism. Burns declared the same ten- dency again is in evidence in dis- trict and county organizations.

It is the plans of school offi- cials here to acquire such funds without necessity of a bond issue. A bond issue, if passed, would re- quire payment of interest over a 20 year period plus the principal.

Discussions Limited Developments at the formal sessions of the council yesterday dish on the country's dinner tables as hun- dreds of butcher shops across the country closed. Operations in packing plants dropped to new all time low levels. The abnormally low volume of livestock at markets during the last two weeks has resulted in the lowest output in history at many plants. Increase Expected An increase in livestock re- ceipts, however, was expected were limited to discussions of I next week by some industry minor economic phases of the Italian treaty, and belief was ex- pressed in some quarters that Molotov would not consent to any thing important until he obtains a verdict on the Trieste issue. Commenting on the situation, the Paris newspaper Le which often reflects the opinions of the French foreign said last night: Mr. Molotov is playing a very close game.- His maneuvers, at times difficult' to understand at first sight, are easily explained when one realizes in- spired by Soviet interest without ever taking into account other considerations." At yesterday's council session, Byrnes who presided again sought a decision on the French- Italian frontier and on the future of the Dodecanese islands, but Molotov objected to consideration of either and attempted to raise the Danube river issue, inform- ants said. Kalian Treaty First Byrnes ruled, however, that the council should work on the spokesmen who said many farm, ers would release cattle which they have been holding back pending settlement of the OPA issue.

There were two accidents Tues- day afternoon within the city limits, both minor. Mrs. C. C. Ross of Allen was traveling north, on Hope when T. W. Lillard drove out of a driveway causing a collision. The accident occured at p. m. and no charges were filed. C. R. Green of Stonewall was going west on tenth at the in- tersection of tenth and Bluff and M. L. Balthrop of Ada was going south on Bluff when the two cars collided at the intersection. Minor damage was done and no charges were filed. Desk Sergeant J. M.

Billie B. Rogers, 23, owner of Yellow Cab company in Holden- ville, and his wife, Helen L. Rog- ers, 25, are reported in a critical condition at Valley View hospital where they were taken following the accident. Robert C. Jones, 39, of Ada was the third person in the auto and his condition is about the same as Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Rogers, driver of a 1943.Ply- mouth sedan, was enroute to Ada traveling at an apparent high rate of speed. The car left the right side of the highway, traveled 141 feet on the wrong side before it started rolling, according to re- ports. Highway Patrolmen Harvey Havykins 'and Glenn Clark in- vestigated the accident and re- ported that the car turned over enough times to travel 135 feet. The accident occurred about 3 p.m. about a mile east of Homer school. Hospital attendants said Wed- nesday morning that the three people are suffering from head injuries and possibly other in- juries.

Elevators Choked With Wheat as Harvest Reaches Peak, Shortage of Box Cars Now A-Bomb Still U.N. Question Only Poland Gives Un- qualified Endorsement Of Russian Plan By CHARLES A. GRDMICH NEW YORK. June 26, The United Nations atomic con- ferees left the veto issue dead- locked between the opposite views of the United States and Russia today and headed for an amicable start on a plan aimed at ultimate world control and development of atomic energy. When the last members of the U. N. atomic energy commission had been polled yesterday for their views on separate control programs advanced by the United States and Russia, all but those two great powers were agreed there were broad measures of merit in both plans. The United States has offered no comment in the commission sessions since the initial presen- tation of her program and Rus- sia made no reference to the American ideas in offering her countery-proposals. May Join Plans Only-Poland" endorsement to the Russian plan, but it was generally agreed that the two proppsals might be weld- ed into a single strategic pro- gram to end the terrible threat of atomic warfare. With the members of the com- mission expressing optimism over the possibilities of meshing the proposals into one integrated pro- gram, the commission chairman, Foreign Minister Herbert V. Eyatt of Australia, set up an ato- mic working committee to begin at once the task of trying to draft an international control plan. The committee represents all! the 12 nations on the commission and will hold its first meeting at a. m. (EDT) Friday. The security council will as- semble (1 PM CST) today to dis- pose erf the Spanish issue on a resolution prepared by a commit- tee composed of Evatt, Britains, Sir Alexander Cadogan and Po- lish Delegate Oscar Lange. They were appointed Monday, after the defeat of Poland's mo- tion for an abrupt U. N. diplo- matic break with the Franco re- gime, to compose the differences arising from Poland's effort to keep the Spanish issue on the council's agenda for action by September 1 and a proposed Bri- tish amendment which would re- tain the issue until the Rcneral assembly meets Sept. 3. The Bri- tish proposal would have the ef- fect of passing the case along to the general assembly without ac- tion by the move as- sailed principally by Soviet Dele- gate Andrei A. Gromyko. Members of the atomic commis- sion's working committee made clear they intend to sidetrack the veto issue and let it reach a showdown only after all the oth- er'differences between the Rus- sian and United States plans have been reconciled. The prime requirement of the American plan laid down by Bernard M. Baruch calls for renunciation of the veto on atomic matters; Rus- sia is opposed to any veto sur- render. Public interest centered on nine-month extension of the war- time draft beyond June 30 with non-lathers between 19 and 4S probably most concerned at pos- sible draftees. Neither service, however, has indicated any de- sire to draft anyone over 26. Oth- er prime provisions of the meas- ure include: Other 1. An 18-month limit on com- pulsory service. 2. No further inductions of fa- thers. 3. A clause that fathers now in service may apply for release after August 1.

W. C. Kernall, executive secre- tary tion of of the American Associa- Railroads, assured the bushels. The box car shortage in the northwest part of the state is acute but in another sections wheat continued to dribble into the larger terminals. By Mon- day nearly cars of grain had arrived at Enid, one Ok- lahoma's chief wheat centers. Yields ranged up to 60 bushels an acre but the- average, of course, was much lower.

Just how much of the wheat farmers would hold in their own bins in protest against the gov- ernment's price they take it to market they must sell at least one half of was not clear. But most points re- ported receiving more grain than had been expected at the start of the harvest. At country elevators', farmers were getting an. average of a bushel with many points re- porting that most of the grain was "No. 1 grade." Much of it has beer, accepted as top grade without inspection, so anxious have grain dealers been to gA the new crop. Temperature Rises to 95 in Ada Ada was the hottest point in southeastern Oklahoma Tuesday with a maximum temperature of 95 degrees being recorded along with a minimum of 67. A trace of rain was recorded during the night, when the tem- perature dipped to 67 degrees.

Hence if he delays this until after July 1, all men on duty with the armed service would have to wait until August? 1 before collecting the extra mon- ey. In all, congressional committees estimated the pay increases will total something over for the next year. One month would amount to more than on an average, so whether the men in uniform collect it in July depends on Mr. Trumah'i pen. Although the house required several hours and some argument before it approved the two com- promises, the senate agreed to both in less than ten minutes without record votes. While the compromise legisla- tion bans induction of anyone under 19, youths still will have to register for the draft when they become 18. This registration clause in the present selective service law altered.
