KELLY  WASHINGTON. Juno 27. <ZP>— Senator Moore (R-Okla) let fire with a 13.000-word 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 tile second day’s debate on a compromise OPA extension measure.  Moore lashed out at the CIO and political action committee as championing price control to force economic collapse and the ‘overthrow of constitutional government."  O’Daniel Ready  Nearby in the listless, sparsely populated senate chamber sat Senator O’Daniel (D-Tex), 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.  Bowles’ 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 I of next year, but eliminate much of its wartime authority to check price" rises. However, the joint congressional committee which whipped it into form eliminated from it the senate-imposed barrier 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 campaign to destroy our capitalistic system and with it the free enterprise of this country.  “With deadly deliberation, the plan is designed to cause ecomo-mic collapse, overthrow of the constitutional government, and the establishment of a centralized government in complete harmony with the ideals of Soviet Russia under which complete regimentation may be effectuated,’’ he continued.  Moore said “strong suspicion” exists that Bowles is “using public funds to further personal political ambitions” and said that he v ould not be surprised if Bowles were supported by the CIO for a place on the democratic national ticket in 1948.  Bowles’ retirement as a result of restrictions on OPA powers contemplated in pending extension legislation has long been talked.  I he president said Bowles has been trying to quit ever since he took office and that he, Mr. Truman, had been successful so far in keeping him on the job. Bowles conferred with the president yesterday but refused to discuss the meeting with reporters.  Mr. Truman declined to discuss the watered-down price extension bill now before the senate. other than to say it was unfortunate that it has been debated so long.  He said he would decide after the measure reaches him whether to make a radio address outlining his position on it.  This was his reply when asked whether he would speak to the people in connection with signing or vetoing of the bill.  On Capitol Hill, Senator O’Daniel (D-Tex) sought to get and hold the senate floor for a chance to talk OPA to death.

Highest Friday near IOO western third to middle 90 s east  SANTIAGO, Chile, June 27, CP> —Juan Antonio Rios, president of Chile since 1942, died here today after a prolonged illness. He was 58 years old.  Rios had been on leave of absence since last January because of ill health.  He was elected president on Feb. I, 1942 in a sweeping victory of the leftist popular front.  He succeeded Pedro Aguirre Cerda, Chile’s first popular front candidate and fellow-member of Rios’ radical party, who had died several months earlier.  Held Other Posts  Rios previously had held the posts of prime minister, minister of justice and president of the Chilean agricultural bank.  When he took office as president, the allied cause w r as at its lowest ebb, and the United States was freshly committed to a World War. Only Chile and Argentina, among the American nations, still maintained relations with the axis powers. In his first address to congress Rios promised he would not permit the use of Chilean territory as a center of activities dangerous to the other American nations.  Chile’s international relations reached a crisis wdien U. S. Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles charged that Chile and Argentina were centers of axis espionage — a charge strongly denied by the Chilean foreign minister. However, Rios postponed a goodwill tour he had planned to make to the United States.  Broke With Axis  Chile broke relations with the axis powers in January, 1943, and Rios’ government vigorously prosecuted a campaign to root out axis spy rings in Chile. Chile also contributed large exports of nitrates and copper to the allied munitions stockpile. Rios planned another trip to the United States but was forced to cancel it in June, 1943, due to a cabinet crisis.  Rios had undergone an operation for what hospital bulletins described as “stomach ulcers” in October. 1944, but subsequently returned to work. Last September he left Santiago by plane for his long-deferred trip to the United States, accompanied by U. S. Ambassador Claude Bowers. He visited President Truman in Washington last October and then continued his trip through the Unite i States and Canada.  Military Court Sentences Thirty  WASHINGTON, June 27, UP—» Presideht Truman said today the world food crisis “is not over,” although the United States is abreast of its goal in the shipment of grain.  The president said in a state-, ment that the country must continue to share its food “during the coming months of hunger a-broad.”  He released this statement to his news conference, asserting that the United States “will fully meet its half-year goal of 60,-000,000 tons of food grains, but that final shipments to complete the total will not leave American ports until after the first of July.  In asserting that “the crisis is not over,” Mr. Truman said that , the loaf of bread that the housewives does not buy ipeans “that much more for hungry children abroad.”  “The very fact that housewives today often find it hard to buy a loaf of bread is evidence of the success of our famine emergency program,” the presidential statement continued. *  An accompanying report, prepared by retiring Reconversion Director John W. Snyder, now treasury secretary, said the shipment of over five and a half million tons of bread grains in the first half of this year is at record “of which the government and the people can be proud.” Snyder credited much of its success to former President Herbert Hoover, the honorary chairman, and Chester Davis, the chairman of the president’s famine emergency committee.

Two trucks w r ere supposed to come but due to a mixup in the State Agricultural headquarters in Oklahoma City only one arrived. The other truck is expected to arrive tomorrow and the fly campaign will go into full swing, according to Mayor Luke B. Dodds.  Mayor Dodds urged all citizens today to aid in cleaning up the city. There are several things that must be done in order to make Ada a sanitary and nice looking city.  “First of all,” he said, “vacant lots must have the weeds cut.

(Ah —Key proponents of labor-regulating legislation abandoned hope today of passing any new measures this year.  Simultaneously Chairman Murray (D-Mont) proposed to the senate labor committee that a presidential commission, rather than any congressional group, undertake the projected long-range study of possible new laws.  The reason, Murray told reporters. is that many members of congress are being tagged either “pro” or “ant:” labor. Also with election campaigns ahead, he added. any legislative inquiry this summer or fall might run into political implications.  Action Postponed  The w'ord that further labor measures are out of the picture for the rest of this season came after a house rules committee decision yesterday to postpone indefinitely any action on a bill to boost minimum wage levels.  It followed, too, efforts by a group of lawmakers to agree on some “suitable” plan which would meet with presidential approval. This attempt failed, and one of the group. Rep. Cox (D-Ga), said the result is that the minimum wage bill. Mr. Truman's suggested emergency strike control measure and the vetoed Case labor disputes bill all are now “dead.”  Earlier, backers of the Case proposal had been trying to revive some of its sections by linking them either to the presidential 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 production of goods for commerce from 40 to 65 cents hourly. It passed the senate, along with some amendments, and was approved by the house labor committee last week. But it needs clearance from the rules committee to rea« h the house floor.  The president’s emergency bill passed both chambers in varying form. The house gave him power, as he asked, to seize essential strike-bound plants ^d 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 de.k awaiting action. It is the so-called Hobbs “anti-racketeering” bill, which was sent to the White House separately after the veto of the Case measure. Its sponsors said the chief aim is to ban unions from interfering with f a r rn e r s in  movement of goods to market.   -  Woman Injured In Auto Accident Dies Thursday  Mrs. Billy B. Rogers, who W'as injured in an automobile accident east of Ada Tuesday, died at 4:25 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 reported fairly good.  Rogers, driver, apparently lost control of the automobile and it turned over an unknown number of times.  The accident occurred about 3 p.m. Tuesday about a mile east of Homer school es the three persons were enroute to Ada from Holdenville where the couple lived.  Mr. Rogers has been operating a Yellow' Cab stand in Holdenville for the past month.  Services for Mrs. Rogers will be conducted at 4:30 p. rn. Friday from the Criswell Chapel with Dr C. C. Morris officiating.  Survivors include the husband; father, Roy E Yoder, and a sister, Francis Yoder, both of Ada.  Committee Okays New Rate Increase  OKLAHOMA CITY. June 27.— (ZP)—The Tulsa chamber of commerce, in representing shippers of that area, has notified the state corporation commission it is agreeable to a recommended commission order allowing temporary rate increases to 29 applying carriers.  An appropriate order granting the temporary increases will be considered tod ly or tomorrow’ by the commission.  Commission Chairman Reford Bond said traffic Manager W. W. Klingensmith of the Tulsa chamber reported that his group was agreeable to the action. The temporary increase w as suggested by the commission’s rate counsel at a hearing last week on the carriers applications for rate increases averaging about six per cent.  The council said his small staff would be pressed to prepare records for a September hearing of the shippers’ protests of the increase. i  Spanish Issue Kept Before U. N. Council  Allies Reject Russian Plans  Byrnes Urges Compromise I Issue Be Left to 21-Notion Peace Parley  By A. I. GOLDBERG  PARIS. June 27. 'ZP*—The western allies rejected last night two Russian counter proposals for the disposition of disputed Trieste. leaving the foreign minsters council still deadlocked today on the most difficult phase of the Italian peace treaty.  The Russian suggestions offered by Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov as a compromise following his rejection of a French plan to internationalize the Adriatic port, proposed (I) that Trieste he made an autonomous district under Yugoslav sovereignty, or (2) that the city be placed under the joint sovereignty of Italy and Yugoslavia.  Both plans were turned down bv the United States, British and French foreign ministers on the grounds that they were unworkable. that they ignored the fact that Trieste is ethnologically Italian and that the ethnic principle was accepted as a yardstick by the ministers in London last September.  No Agreement  While the outcome apparently left the council as far from agreement as ever, some British circles indicated they were heartened by Molotov’s maneuver, which they interpreted as a sign of Russia’s willingness to bargain. These quarters predicted that two or three days more of private conversations might bring agreement.  Molotov’s proposals were presented at a special night session which was called at the request of the §QiLl^t foreign minister and which continued until past midnight.  The session—first night meeting of the ministers since they first assembled in April — was held in an atmosphere of expectancy, heightened by French press reports that Molotov was looking for arrival of an important message from Moscow which might bring a surprise development in the Trieste situation.  Molotov Offers Proposal Molotov offered his proposals with the double-edged assertion that thev were a concession to show Russia’s willingness to compromise but that his government would never agree to any settlement which was incompatible with Yugoslavia’s desire for sovereignty over Trieste.  ^ He brushed aside the previous French proposal for internationalization of Trieste with the assertion 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 w f as predominantly Italian and that the second would be equally unworkable because it would leave a feeling of uncertainty in the district as to who actually was in charge.  Byrnes Has Sunoort British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bovin and Georges Bidault, French president and foreign minister, supporter Byrnes.  Byrnes declared that if a settlement 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 w'as described as visibly disappointed over the reception given his proposals, said that such a step would only disrupt the conference.  The three-hour session ended inconclusively w'hen the foreign ministers agreed to meet this afternoon to consider the Romanian peace treaty. There was no indication today when the Trieste problem would be attacked again.  Ministers Agree to Give Greece Dodecanese Islands  Veto Has Become on Over-Powering Weapon in Deliber* onions; Evatf Challenges Validity of Method by Which Vato Was Exercised  PARIS, June 27.— (AP)—The Foreign Ministers Council agreed today to give the Dodecanese Islands to Greece w ith the proviso that they be demilitarized, an American informant reported.  The Dodecanese are in the eastern Mediterranean and were governed bv Italy before the w ar.
