The money was approved for planning and survey on a project that is estimated to cost about $1,500,000 if approved in a bond issue by the people of Ada.  City officials said Thursday morning that the large amount was approved for the planning of a visible water supply and the smaller amount is for planning a water softening plant.  Plans for the two projects have been made since 1945 and have been in the hands of federal authorities for several months during which time government officials investigated the plans before the allocation of money was made.  The money approved is solely for engineering and has nothing to do with the actual construction of either of the two projects.  Citizens of Ada will probably be given a chance to approve or turn down the proposition in a bond election, officials said. If the projects are approved, the money that was allocated by the government will have to be included in the bond issue and returned to the government.  Should the two projects be disapproved. the City of Ada will not have to return any of the money.  Information of the approval of the two grants was received by The News Wednesday afternoon, from Congressman Lyle H. Boren.  Soil of Bastogne Brought to ll. S.  Sen.

Slate Wheat Crop Record  Corn Crop Estimate Above Last Year, Oats, Potatoes Showing Gains  By Th* Associated Press  A virtually complete July I estimate of Oklahoma’s bumper wheat crop of 87,945,000 bushels has removed any doubt that the 1946 crop topped any previous Oklahoma production.  Federal Statistician K. D. Blood said the crop is more than two million bushels greater than 1944’s previous high of 85,914,000 bushels. The July I estimate also reflected a three-quarters of a million bushels gain since the special June 15 forecast.  A first agriculture department estimate of the 1946 Oklahoma corn crop set the yield at 29,944,-000 bushels compared with last year’s 26,280,000 bushels and a ten-year average of 28,988,000 bushels.  Corn Yield Is Up  The estimated corn acreage of  1.576.000 this year is some 16 per cent below the ten-year average. The greater yield estimate was accounted for in good growing conditions and gloater use of hybrid corn which should bring the production average to 19 bushels an acre.  Other July I crop estimates for Oklahoma:  Oats—22,596,000 bushels, 1,076,-000 acres, 21 bushels per acre. Last year’s production was 19,-  855.000 bushels and the ten-year average is 27,713,000.  Rye — 640,000 bushels, 80,000 acres, eight bushels per acre. Last year's production was 1,064,000 bushels and the ten-year average is 827.000.  Barley—1,520,000 bushels, 94,-000 acres, 16 bushels per acre. Last year's production was 2,108,-000 bushels and the ten-year average is 5,209,000.  Tame Hay Down  Tame Hay—1,246,000 tons compared with production last year of 2,362,000 and a ten year average of 1,007,000.  Alfalfa Hay—645,000 tons, compared with production of 790,000 last year and a ten-year average of 498.000.  Irish Potatoes — 1,725,000 bushels, compared with production of 1,155,000 last year and a ten-year average of 2,223,000.  Sweet Potatoes — 850,000 bushels, compared with production of 750.000 last year and a ten-year average of 815,000.  Acreage forecasts for popcorn and mung beans, which put many thousands of dollars in Oklahoma growers’ pockets in past years, showed a sharp drop as a result of overproduction and declining prices last year, Blood said.  The popcorn acreage was estimated at 10,000 compared with  38.000 last year and the mung bean acreage at 75,000, compared W’ith 110,000 last year.  Stratford Farmers To A&M Saturday  Will Go in Group to Attend Annuol Posture Improve* ntent Day at Stillwater  Stratford farmers will make a trip Saturday, July 13, to Stillwater to attend the annual Pasture Improvement Day sponsored by Oklahoma A. and M. college.

U.S. on Way Toward Its Sixth Successive Bumper Crop Year  Record Corn Crop, Near-Record Crops o# Wheat, Oats, Potatoes, Rice, Large Vegetable, Fruit Harvests in Sight  By OVID A. MARTIN Associated Press Farm Reporter  WASHINGTON, July ll.—(AP)—This country is well on the way today toward its sixth consecutive bumper harvest.  In fact, the agriculture department in its latest monthly crop report said the current outlook for total farm production has seldom been surpassed.  The repon issued yesterdays -     —   p aid conditions prevailing July I ‘ indicated a record corn crop, near-reccrd ' l ops of wheat, oats, potatoes and rice, and large crops  of vegetables and most fruits.  The outlook on grains was particularly gratiiving to food officials. because supplies have been largely depleted in meeting foreign relief demands and in feeding a near-record livestock population.  Can Send Promised Wheat  If the gtain crops turn out as now indicated, the nation will be in a posit’.*" to carry out its commitments to send 250.000,000  bushels of wheat to shortage areas during the next 12 months and ..till maim un production of stock products- meat, milk, eggs and poultiv -at levels near those of the past year.  The fact that there will be need for all that can be produced was c mphasized i now by Chairman Chester CV Davis of President  r 'uman’s ’amine emergency committee.  World Crisis Not Over  In a statement issued today, Davis salt* the United States will meet its ; oa! for cereal exports from the 1945 crop. But he emphasized that there should be. no feeling that the world food ci isis is over. He said exports must continua  Hay Protested (ut In Production For "Friend of Mine"  By JOHN W\ HENDERSON  WASHINGTON, July ll.—t/p> J A new telephone transcription , was released at the senate mu-1 nitions investigation today, de-; picting Rep May (D-Ky) as pro-j testing a production cutback or-, de red for ‘a friend of mine.”  I Th** transcript was placed belive- , tin* senate  war investigation committee as it sought details Porn Brig- Gen Roswell Hardy, wartime chi* I of the ordnance ] £ mmunition division, on the ex-I tent of May’s activities in behalf I of certain munitions makers.  I Offered as evidence by com-: rnittee couns* I George Meader, it • covered a telephone conversation I between B ty and Hardy on May j 7, 1945, on a “cutback” in an , eight-inch rh’ll contract.  In it, May, chairman of the house military committee, was quoted as sating at the outset that ho had just seen “a friend of i    •,    mine,’’—-Henry Garsson, one of  LnSamhS rn* mao  tho  Promoter* of 19 closely-linked  least through September to hold ♦ne famine prevention gains already made.  Foreign demands upon this country after September will de-  upon  corporations now under investigation.  He told Hardy that Garsson had informed him of the cutback for the Batavia Metal Products company’s order for shell production, and said# “I am not interested in the company, he is a friend of •nine.”  Hardy was recorded as breaking in on the conversation to say ♦hat “Kaiser also was cut back >n the eight-inch shell; that he was knocked down even more” than Garsson  May then declared, the tran-I'ipt showed, that the war dewax “hard on gested that ordnance confider Garsson for another type of contract.  Dend very largely, he said, harvests hi shortage areas.  While toe corn crop—the kev material rn ♦’ie production of ivestock products—may be the largest ev*. r harvested, it is un-1'kelv, officials said, that supplies will be sufficient to allow any material incre; se in its use in making whiskey  Some Dark Spots  The crop outlook was not w ith-out its dar* sr.ots The production paVtmont"dc“ii.ii>n of oilseeds - soybeans, peanuts a fellow,” and sutti and flaxseed—will be below wartime levels and below demands.  Margarine, shortening, salad oils and paints are principal products mad .* from the oilseeds.  Likewise, Hie rye and barley crops may bo the smallest since tee drought ot the 30’s.  On the brighter side was a forecast ti at the domestic sugar trop may be 25 per cent larger than last year’s abnormally small crop. This increase does not mean, however, that rationing can be abandoned this year. The United Stages depends upon imports for about two-thirds of its sugar supply, and the world production is still far short of demands.  The report said farmers are maintaining ihe production of milk and eggs at near record levels. I*averrable pastures and ranges are contributing to the high levei of milk production.  Quiet (onlinues For Police Here  Police department officials re-p >rted Thursday morning that the unusual quiet experienced since Monday is continuing. Two more arrests have been made, raising the total ricked up since then to three.  One druak was picked up Wednesday and released after paying h fine of $3.75. One was arrested Thursday mr ming and was still under arrest  No stolen cars, or robberies have been re poi S *d this week and only one accident, a very minor one, has occurred.

Molotov For Reich Unity  Russio for Self-Sufficient Germany—May Be Bid For Popularity in Reich  Bv JOSEPH DYNAN  PARIS, July ll. «r> Russia emerged today as the champion of a reunited and self-sufficient Germany on th*' basis of a policy-charting speech yester lay by Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov.  Addressing his colleagues on the foreign ministers council. Molotov flatly opposed th** dismemberment or federalization of Germany or reduction of the reich to an agricultural state.  The speech was th** first clear cut expression of the kremlin’s attitude toward Germany since the end of the war.  Some quarters here were inclined to write off the address as a Russian hid for popularity within the reich, and as a move to strengthen the forces of German communists.  It was generally conceded that Molotov, in the eyes of the average German, now stood for a Germany governed bv Germans, and for the return of a decent standard of living.  French official quarters expressed dismay that th** Russian policy of unification was in direct conflict with the French proposal  (Continued on Page 2 Col. I)  Australia Demands Review of U.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
