Kaltenbach. seized by the Rus- sians almost immediately after the end of hostilities in Berlin, had been sought by thc Ameri- cans ever since August, 1945, when the first of many requests was made to the Red "Army for his custody. The Russians replied that they were unable to locate Kaltenbach.

Kaltenbach broadcast, m ado speeches and wrote pamphlets for the Nazis from 1937 until 1942, but in the latter years of the war he lapsed into relative inactivity because of poor health. He wa's known to have been ill of a heart ailment and asthma for at least 33 months prio.- to his arrest by the_ Russians on May 15, 1945. Not only were the'Russians un- able to produce any camp rec- ords on Kaltenbach's case, but they also failed to inform the American authorities on the cause of death. Thc letter bearing tr.e news of the propagandist's passing, signed by a Red army major general said only that "Kaltenbach's death of natural causes has been confirmed by statements of several former in- mates of the camp where he Bitter Feud In Governor Race Finale Turner and Gilmer Locked In Hot Contest; Three Con- gressmen in Stiff Battles OKLAHOMA CITY.

Thc bitter battle of Roy J. Tur- ner and Dixie Gilmer for the democratic nomination for gov- ernor is having plenty of reverbe- rations in Pontotoc county. The county went for William Coe in the first election, with Turner in second place; most of the estimates now to be heard of Tuesday's outcome are being given out in confident fashion by the adherents of one or the other: A heavy vote in Pontotoc coun- ty makes it a desirable plum in a race as hard-fought as that of this year. Sheriff's Race Hard-Fought With many, the outcome of the Clyde Kaiser-Cecil Smith race for sheriff is even more compelling of a move to the polls. Smith led Sheriff Kaiser in the first pri- mary and since that time the campaigning has been persistent and spirited. Probably third in' general in- terest is the Cong. Lyle Boren vs. Glen D. Johnson runoff battle raging now all over the Fourth district with Johnson attacking Boren's record and pointing to his own war service and Boren charging Johnson ..sup- ported by the CIO because of his (Bbren's) opposition to labor racketeering leadership. v Pontotoc county went for John- son in the earlier vote and sup- porters of both have Tallied their forces for terrific finish drives ending Tuesday, Earnest State Senate Campaign There will be a big vote cast in another race, that of Virgil Med- lock, state representative for Pon- totoc county, against Al Nichols, Wewoka, state senator. No cam- paign thjs year has been more earnest over the two counties Seminole and will be represented by the winner. Overshadowed by the 'big' races but nonetheless a hard cam- paign is that of Bob Austell, chal- lenger, and George R. Collins, county commissioner for District 2, and this race will contribute definitely to the unexpectedly high total of ballots being talked for Tuesday. Various state races are of less than even secondary .interest ex- cept that among school people the Oliver Hodge-A. L. Crable cam- paign for state superintendent of education is of much concern. One of the secondary state races is, getting some boost here now as friends of Buck Cook, in the runoff with Mabel Basset for commissioner of charities and corrections, urge friends to sup- port the former Elmore Cityan now in Durant, a war veteran who has been a.business man and also a state highway patrolman. the weather changes suddenly and drastically for the worse for a big Pontotoc county vote. had a broken arm and bruises and at first was thought not to be in danger, but internal injur- ies, extent of which was difficult to ascertain, proved fatal less than 24 hours after the accident.

Previously the senate had voted to eliminate federal controls where states had entered this field, but thc conferees struck this out. In announcing the end of a stalemate over a bill to put OPA back in business, senate demo- cratic Lender Barkley (Ky) said this would be done with major food items which the senate had proposed to remove entirely from price controls: Back On Aug. 20 Controls would go back auto- matically on Aug. 20 on meats, dairy products, grains, cottonseed, and soybeans, and food and feed. products made from them unless a three-man decontrol board de- cided before then that they should be reimposed should remain free of controls. If the board fails to act, tha control's are reinstated. Price ceilings on general com- modities would go back into ef- fect immediately after the bill be- came at the level fixed by the OPA. Poultry, eggs and tobacco would remain free of ceilings un- til the secretary of agriculture and thc proposed new decontrol board agree that controls on them should be. .Restored.
