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 ‘Tearless champion of the right.” Carter characterized Gilmer as ‘ a sound lawyer . . . plain as an old shoe . . . with honesty of the Andrew Jackson. Abe Lincoln type.” and asserted that if elected governor the Tulsa prosecutor would drive out of office men with bad intent.  Want Public Debate At ihe 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 was answered by Turner with the observation that “the people of Oklahoma City know how I stand on corruption rn office from my record, private and official.” adding that he thought it unnecessary to change his own speaking schedule to meet Gilmer.  Simultaneously democratic State Chairman H. I. Hinds issued a denial at Tahlequah of knowledge of any ‘‘widespread criticism of the activity” of district and county party officials in the primary campaign.  Hinds Makes Denial His denial was in reply to State Senator Robert Burns who last week recalled his charges against | the state central committee in the 1943 primaries alleging favoritism. Burns declared the same tendency again is in evidence in district and county organizations.  Hinds said th^ state headquarters has made a special effort to avoid being involved in the primaries and denied that there had been any effort by the central committee to organize for any candidate in the primary.  “I know that most of the chairmen and vice-chairmen throughout the state have candidates of their choosing and manv of them are active for them.” Hinds said. ‘‘but you will find that the eight district chairmen throughout the state are supporting different can cidates for governor.**  FIVE CENTS THE COPY  Atom Bomb Crews Ready for Test  * f  ^IndianapoHs, Indiana, right.

M. Molotov called a surprise private meeting of the foreign ministers council for 9:45 o’clock tonight (2:45 p. rn., C.S.T.) to discuss Italian affairs, an American informant said.  This disclosure was made following reports in the French press that Molotov was expecting a telephone call from Moscow which might bring a break in the Trieste issue, the key to Italian peace negotiations.  Secretary of State Byrnes was represented by American informants as encouraged by a series of private talks with Molotov, w(io has been adamant in demanding that Trieste be transferred from Italy to Yugoslavia.  There was no known basis for the Paris newspaper assertions.

June 26.—  — Senator Wherry threw his weight as republican Whip behind a senate drive today to beat the compromise OPA bill despite its thumping 265 to 105 victory in the house.  But Senator Lucas (D-Ill) said he thought the overwhelming house vote foreshadowed a senate okay for the measure even though, he added, “nobody likes it.”  Wherry, a Nebraskan, said he did not seen how the senate could accept the conference committee decision eliminating a senate  clause which would have ______  price control from meat next Sunday night.

Morrison.  Approximately $30,000 was raised following a similar election last year. Supt. Morrison explains that such a building fund levy is an important step forward to-Vwaid better schools in Ada.  It is the plans of school officials here to acquire such funds without necessity of a bond issue. A bond issue, if passed, would require payment of interest over a 20 year period plus the principal.  The growth and expansion of the City of Ada has already crowded local schools, especially grade schools.

By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON  WASHINGTON, June 26.—(AP)—With more than $50,« 000,000 at stake, the nation's men in uniform riveted their attention on the White House today to learn when the draft extension compromise and its companion pay increase measure become law.  The twin bills cleared final congressional hurdles yesterday in doublequick time after months of argument.  Public interest centered on tha , nine-month extension of the war-| time draft beyond June 30 with non-fathers between 19 and 45 probably most concerned as pos-I sible draftees.

A word of caution was interposed, however, by one high American source, who declared:  “We’re not out of the w’oods yet.”  Discussions Limited  Developments at the formal sessions of the council yesterday were limited to discussions of minor economic phases of the Italian treaty, and belief was expressed in some quarters that Molotov w’ould not consent to any thing important until he obtains a verdict on the Trieste issue.

After some discussion, marked by an exchange of compliments between Byrnes and Molotov, the council deposed of two minor questions by agreeing to delete from the treaty clauses providing for com-  country’s dinner tables as hun deeds 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 receipts, however, was expected next week by some industry spokesmen who said many farmers would release cattle which they have been holding back pending settlement of the OPA issue.  The larger run in the weeks ahead, they said, would be seasonal as grass cattle move to market, but some expressed belief that the total meat output during the next six months might be less than in the corresponding period of last year.  City after city reported virtually no fresh meat obtainable—and in some cities even cold cuts were hard to get through normal channels.  New York City’s meat-hungry millions were unable to find any meat even in the illegal market.  Packers Face Shutdown  In Los Angeles packers threatened a complete shutdown of packing house and retail markets because of their dissatisfaction with the OPA bill provisions retaining the pried controls, as votea by the house yesterday.  G. M. Foster, president of the John Morrell and Company said in Ottumwa. la., that his company was unable to buy livestock "under present restrictions,” and ‘‘no one can blame livestock owners for holding their livestock in the hope of a price rise. ” His statement came after layoffs of 3,450 workers at three Morrel  we° KL D^tK M d ,7h  G T? l l V fa 7l reTbTthe‘ ^govT.'ZenJ  and Thursdayf possiReseat tered     f ° r Ua ! ian liabillty for AI '  pi v/* iVlillf, A Vt I tUIll-    ---- --    --v.. «.* m v vin  pensation for property expropria- Plants since Saturday.

UP) — Country elevators were choked with w'heat today in the nation’s bread belt as the 1946 harvest reached its peak with a shortage of box cars its main problem.  Nearly 300 grain elevators in Kansas. Oklahoma, and Texas have all the wheat they can handle until the rail bottleneck is broken. In some instances grain was piled on the ground both at elevators and on farms because of the railroad car shortage.  But there was hope that the transportation problem might soon be solved. An appeal by Gov. Schoeppel of Kansas that his state is facing critical sooil-age of the ne\v crop brought a promise of more railroad cars to move grain to larger terminals which still have plenty of storage room.  W. C. Kernall, executive secre-  The harvest swung into full scale this week after rains in the w'heat country had forced a brief interruption. Glowing reports of bumper yields continued to pour in from all three states.  Heavy rains and cool weather in early June added more than 12,000,000 bushels to the estimated Kansas crop. H. L.

Just how’ much of the wheat  Oklahoma, where the harvest ^ arm ®rs would hold in their own  is 85 per cent completed, expects a record wheat crop. The last federal forecast was $7,000,000 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.

Yields ranged up to 60 bushels  bins in protest against the gov ernment’s price policy—if they take it to market they must sell at least one half of it—still was not clear.

The high temperature for Monday was 89 degrees and the low was 72.
