KELLY WASHINGTON, June 27, Senator Moore (R-Okla) let fire a speech against price controls today as senate clocks ticked away toward the OPA expiration hour of Sunday midnight. He gained the senate floor, armed with a prepared address, at the opening of the second day's debate on a compromise OPA ex- tension measure. Moore lashed out at the CIO and political action committee as championing price control to force economic collapse and the "overthrow of constitutional gov- ernment." O'Oaniel Ready Nearby in the listless, sparsely populated senate chamber sat Senator O'Daniel ready to take over in his announced plan to talking OPA to death. Downtown, President Truman told a news conference that he is trying to persuade Chester Bowles to remain at his post of economic stabilizer. Bowies' retirement as a result of restrictions on OPA powers contemplated in the extension legislation "has long been talked. The measure would give OPA a lease on life until July 1 of next year, but eliminate much of its wartime authority to check rises. However, the joint congressional committee which it into form eliminated from it the senate-imposed bar- rier against controls over meat, dairy and poultry prices. Moore Delivers Speed Moore told the senate that "the deep underlying purpose of the CIO leadership xxxx is a cam- paign to destroy pur capitalistic -system and with it the free en- terprise of this country. "With deadly deliberation, the plan is designed to cause ecomo-f mic collapse, overthrow of the i _ constitutional government, and i of the, establisliment of a centralized government in complete harmony with the ideals of Soviet Russia under which complete regimenta- tion may be he con- tinued.

Two Men Pay Fines On Charges Of Traffic Violations William Garrison and Walter B. Fisher each paid fines and costs in Percy Armstrong's jus- tice court after entering pleas of guilty to traffic violations. Fisher was charged with vio- lation of the rules of the road No. 1 after he was arrested by High- way Patrolmen Harvey Hawkins and Cy Killian. The patrolmen said that he was driving a 1940 Chevrolet sedan to the left of the center line on the highway north of Ada -without due regard for traffic existing.

Labor Law Backers Drop Hope of Action Morse Urges Long-Range Study of Presidential Body Rather Than Congress WASHINGTON, June proponents of labor-regu- lating legislation abandoned hope today of passing any new meas- ures this year. Simultaneously. Chairman Mur- ray (D-Mont) proposed to the senate labor cnmmittee that a presidential commission, rather than any congressional undertake the projected long- range study of possible new laws. The reason, Murray told report- ers, is that many members of congress are being tagged either "pro" or "anti" labor. Also with election c'amprugns ahead, he add- ed, any legislative- inquiry this summer or full might run into political implications. Action Postponed The word that further labor measures are out of the picture for the rest ol this season came after a house rules committee de- cision yesterday to postpone in- definitely any action on a bill to boost minimum wage levels. It followed, too, efforts by a group of lawmakers to a'gree on some "suitable" plan which would meet with presidential approval. This attempt failed, and one of the group, Rep. Cox said the result is that the minimum wage bill, Mr. Truman's suggested emergency strike control mea- sure and the vetoed Case labor disputes bill all are now "dead." Earlier, backers of the Case proposal had been trying to re- vive some of its sections by link- ing them either to the presiden- tial plan or the minimum wage bill. Would Boost For Pay The latter would have boosted the bottom pay'level for workers in interstate commerce or pro- duction of goods for commerce from 40 to 65 cents hourly. It passed the senate, along with some amendments, and was ap- proved by tilt; house labor com- mittee last week. But it needs clearance from the rules com- mittee to reach the house floor. The president's emergency bill passed both chambers in varying form. The house gave him pow- er, as he asked, to seize essential strike-bound- plants draft workers to run them. The senate deleted the draft authority. Meanwhile, one section of the vetoed Case bill still is on the president's deik awaiting action. It is the so-called Hobbs "anti- racketeering" bill, which was sent to the White House separ- ately after the veto of the Case measure. Its sponsors said the chief aim is to ban unions from interfering with farmers in movement of goods to market. Woman Injured In Auto Accident Dies Thursday Mrs. Billy B. Rogers, who was injured in an automobile accident east of Ada Tuesday, died at a.m. Thursday morning at a local hospital. Her husband, Billy B. Rogers, and Robert C. Jones are still in Valley View hospital where their conditions are re- ported fairly good. Rogers, driver, apparently lost control of the automobile and it turned over an unknown num- ber of times. The accident occurred about 3 p.in. Tuesday about a mile east of Homer school n? the three persons were enroute to Ada from Hol- denville where the couple lived. Mr. Rogers has been bperating a Yellow Cab stand in Holden- ville for the past month. Services for Mrs. Rogers will be conducted at p. m. Friday from the Criswell Chapel with Dr. C. C. Morris officiating. Survivot-s include the husband; father, Roy E. Yoder, and a sister, Francis of Ada. Committee Okays New Rate Increase OKLAHOMA CITY, June Tulsa chamber of com- merce, in representing shippers of that area, has notified the state corporation commission it is agreeable to a recommended com- mission order allowing tempor- ary rate-increases to 29 applying carriers. Ah appropriate order granting the temporary increases will be considered tod.-iy or tomorrow by the commission. Commission Chairman Reford Bond said traffic Manager W. W. Klingensmith of the Tulsa cham- ber reported that his group was agreeable to the action. The tem- porary increase was suggested by the commission's rate counsel at a hearing last week on the car- riers applications for rate increas- es averaging" about six per cent. The council said his small staff would be pressed rec- ords for a September hearing of the shippers' protests of the in- crease. Spanish Issue Kept Before U. N. Council Mlies Reject Russian Plans Greater returns for amount in- vested. Ada News Want Ads. Byrnes Urges Compromise Issue Be Left to 21-Nation Peace Parley By A. I. GOLDBERG PARIS, June 27, westr ern allies rejected last night two Russian countdr proposals for the disposition of disputed Trie- ste, leaving the foreign minsters council still deadlocked today on the most difficult phase of the Italian peace treaty. The Russian suggestions offer- ed by Soviet. Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov as a compromise following his rejection of a French plan to internationalize the Adriatic port, proposed (1) that Trieste be rnacie an autono- mous district under Yugoslav sovereignty, or (2) that the city be placed under the joint sov- ereignty of Italy and Yugoslavia. Both plans were turned down by the United States, British and French foreign ministers on the grounds that they were unwork- able, that they ignored the fact that Trieste is ethnologically Ita- lian and that the ethnic principle was accepted as a yardstick by the ministers in London last Sep- tember. No Agreement While the outcome apparently left the council as far from agreement as ever, some British circles indicated they were heart- ened by Molotov's maneuver, which they interpreted as a sign of Russia's willingness to bar- gain. These quarters predicted that two or three days more of private conversations might bring, agreement. Molotov's proposals were pre- sented at a special night session which was called at the request of the tpreign-minister and which continued until past midnight. The night meet- ing of the ministers since they first assembled in April was held in an atmosphere of expectancy, heightened by- French press reports that Molo- tov was looking for arrival of an important message from Mos- cow, which might bring a sur- prise development in the Trieste situation. Molotov Offers Proposal Molotov offered his proposals with the double-edged assertion that they were a concession to show Russia's willingness to compromise but that his govern- ment would never agree to any settlement which was incompat- ible with Yugoslavia's desire for sovereignly over Trieste. He brushed aside the previous French proposal for internation- alization ot Trieste with the as- sertion that Russia would not consider anything "vague." U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, who was the first to reply, declared the first Russian plan would not work because the population of Trieste was pre- dominantly Italian and that the second would be equally un- workable because it would leave a feeling of uncertainty in the district as to who actually was in charge. Byrnes Has Support British Foreign Secretary Ern- est Bevin and Georges Bidault, French president and foreign minister, supporter Byrnes. Byrnes declared that if a set- tlement of the Trieste issue on an ethnic basis could not be reached, the whole matter should be referred to a 21-nation peace conference. Molotov, who was described as visibly disappointed over the reception given his pro- posals, said that such a step would only disrupt the con- ference. The three-hour session ended inconclusively when the foreign ministers agreed to meet this af- ternoon to consider the Roman- ian peace treaty. There was no indication today when the Trie- ste problem would be attacked again. World War II Price In Lives Given WASHINGTON, June 27, The army today placed the hu- man price it paid for World.War II victory at dead and missjng. This total meant a fatality rate of 2.98 per cent among the more than 'men and women i'who saw army service during the 1 conflict.

Ministers Agree to Give Greece Dodecanese Islands Veto Has Become an Over-Powering Weapon in Deliber- ations; Evart Challenges Validity of Method by Which Veto Was Exercised PARIS, June Foreign Ministers Council agreed today to give the Dodecanese Islands to Greece with the proviso that they be demilitarized, an American inform- ant reported. -The Dodecanese are in the eastern Mediterranean and were governed by Italy before the war. The 13 small islands, of which Rhodes is the largest, were occupied by Italy dur- ing the Tripoli war between Turkey and Italy in 1911. The islands are inhabited principally by Greek sponge fishermen. The population is about The Germans garrisoned a number of the islands during the war and the British mnde unsuc- cessful attempts to capture them.

Delegates to the United Nations security council were agreed to- day, after a confused and acrim- onious debate, thai the Spanish issue remains on the agenda and that the veto has become an over- Britain Will Ration Bread Program Alloting British Basic Nine Ounces Of Bread Daily Starrs July 21 LONDON, June bread and Britain will ration flour next month, measure avoided throughout the last two wars. John Strachey, minister of food, announced in the house of com- mons today that the program al- loting the British a basic nine ounces of bread daily would start July 21. Meat rations were raised slight- ly, allowing Britons to buy meat worth 28 cents a week, rather than 24 cents. Most adults will receive nine ounces of bread daily. Male man- ual workers will receive 15 -oun- ces and women laborers and ex- pectant mothsrs will receive 11. Two Ounces For Some Children under one year of age will be allowed two ounces daily; children one to five years old, four ounces; children five to 11 years, eight ounces; and those 11 to 18 years, 12 ounces. Winston Churchill, wartime prime minister who now leads the conservative opposition, im- mediately challenged labor to a debate. "The decision ol the govern- ment to introduce the rationing of bread on July 21 without furnish- ing any of the facts and figures on which the decision is based" makes debate imperative, Church- ill said. "This is one of the gravest an- nouncements 1 have ever heard in the house in the time'of peace. What is the saving? Could he (Strachey) give us some figures about that? Labor Tarty Shouts "Are we to assume thai, owing to some grave miscalculations or other untoward events we are to expect a far more stringent di- minution in the bread available to this country than that maintained at five or ten per rest of his words were drowned out in shouts from the labor party Strachey replied: "Nothing I have said carries that implication in any respect." "I need scarcely emphasize that the government has reached this decision because they are con- vinced that to fail to ration bread and flour at the present time be to take an unjustifiable risk with the basic food supply of the British the food min- ister said. of the labor government Ration books good for a year from July 21 now are being dis- tributed. To Reduce Consumption Strachey estimated the ration- ing levels would reduce bread consumption five to ten per cent. The rationing will be measured into bread units. The one pound and 12 ounce loaf of bread will require four bread units; one pound of bread flour, three units; and one pound of confectionary flour, two units. Heavy bread eaters will be able to convert other food rationing points into bread units, and per- sons who eat little bread may convert their points into rations for other foods.

Gro- myko demonstrated that any question brought before the coun- cil can be knocked out by a single vote of any one ol the "Big Five" permanent members. He wielded the veto three times last night on British-Australian proposals con- cerning the Spanish question. After the council's longest and bitterest session adjourned at 9 p.m. Australian Foreign Minister Herbert V. Evatt, who served as chairman of the coun- cil subcommittee which investi- gated Spain, summed up the sit- uation produced the fusion by saying: Spanish issue, by un- recorded agreement, remains un- settled before the council for re- vival at the command of any member at any time, and council remains com- mitted to "moral condemnation" of the Franco regime. Didn't Like Debate Evatt challenged the validity of the method by which the veto was exercised in unprecedented fashion by Gromykq and declared the debate lasting hours nnd minutes constituted "scan- dal." British Delegate Sir Aloxnndcr Cndogan, in a Unitod "Charter Day" speech broadcast to the empire last night, criti- cized the velo power and said it would force the U. N. into an "all or nothing policy." His speech was prepared well in advance of last night's council session. Throughout the protracted nr- gumcnt, in which Gromyko rais- ed JJie question'of parliamentary courtesy in a clash with Council President Francisco Castillo Na- jera, of Mexico, the details of Spanish issue were almost com- pletely overshadowed. The Soviet delegate encaged in running argument's chiefly with Evatt and Castillo Najera and used the vote to kill a resolution and a separate amendment on which he had been outvoted by the majority. 'Unable To Agree Unable to agree with Polish Delegate Oscar Lango on a com- promise resolution on the Span- ish question, Evatt and Cadogan yesterday offered their own com- mittee majority proposal to keep the Spani.sh issue indefinitely in the council "without prejudice to the rights of the general assem- bly." The British-Australian resolu- tion was approved by a majority vote of fl to 2, with Russia and Poland against it. President Cas- tillo Najera declared it was od- opted. This was promptly disputed by Gromyko, who contended that the resolution involved "substan- (Conlinued on Page 2 Column 3) TH' PESSIMIST IIS link Jr. Ain't it nsloundin' those days how th' young folks 're so much alike in many disre- spects.
