Midnight Tonight  By FRANCIS M. LE MAY  WASHINGTON, July 23.—(AP)—The house today approved the new compromise OPA revival bill.  The action sent the measure, worked out in a senate-house conference committee, to the senate for action there.  The plan was to obtain senate action later this afternoon so that the measure, if finally approved, might go to the White House by night fall.  The house earlier decisively rejected a move to strip all price controls from the compromise bill, which would have left the measure as a simple authority over rents.  The plan was defeated first on a standing vote of 159 to 120. and then rejected on a formal roll call 220 to 135.  ——--- #   Search Debris For 50 Missing  Jews, Arobs Join British In Resentment, Horror At Terror Bombing In Jerusalem  Voting Runs From Light to Average In Much of State  By The Associated Press  Balloting was heavy in Tulsa county as perfect weather spurred voters choosing democratic nom inees for governor ari l other Ok lahoma offices but in other sections of the state it ran from light to average.  Main interest centered in the democratic gubernatorial r a c e which found Dixie Gilmer. Tulsa county prosecutor, pitted against Roy J. Turner. Oklahoma City oil and cattleman.  In contrast to the heavy vote in Tulsa county, that in Oklahoma county was reported lighter than I in the July 2 primary.  ! An index to the trend in Ok-i lahoma countv was seen in Ward j One where the voting was off • about one third as compared to that on July 2 at the same hour.

Salary Discussion Warms Up Manager Dodds told the coun  products meet in the district court room Saturday at I p. rn.  A short meeting was held Monday morning. The men present discussed the policy of the Farm Bureau relative to milk, cream and other dairy products.  County dairymen will be working through the Federal Farm Bureau.  Phil McLachlan, president of the county group, says that there has been an increase in the a-mount paid for dairy products, but dairymen have been receiving less money since the raise in price than they did before they received the raise.  In Pontotoc county there are about 70 members and it is hoped bv present members that the number can be increased to about 200.  The Federal Farm Bureau was organized four years ago for the purpose of taking care of legislation pertaining to agriculture.  Reckless Driving Is Charge on Blevins  Elmer Blevins was charged w’ith reckless driving, in the Percy Armstrong justice of peace court, Monday morning after Highway Patrolman Harvey Hawkins signed a complaint.

Capitol Hill felt certain Mr.  Truman would sign the measure even though (I) he vetoed the first congressional attempt to trim OPAV powers and (2) the new compromise bans price ceilings on major foods for at least 30 days.  OPA Head Favors Signing Any congressional concern a-bout another veto was virtually dispelled lite yesterday when Paul Porter, OPA administrator, disclosed to newsmen that he hail j told the president the compro-  fiise is better than the bill Mr. ruman refused to sign in June.

These need not be announced for 30 days.  Showdown votes were set today. first in the house and then in the senate.  The house was expected to act Quickly, but there was some possibility senate foes of the price agency might want to do a lot of talking in advance of a vote in that chamber.  Taft Changes Over However Senator Taft (R-Ohio) announced he would support the compromise. It was his pricing amendment in the vetoed bill that provoked the sharpest presidential criticism of that measure. The pricing formula later was modified.  Some debate appeared likely in the house. Rep. Wolcott (R-Mich), a member of the 14-man senate-house conference committee which wrote the compromise bill, refused to .support it.  “I will not be a party to the almost inevitable confusion which will result from attempts to administer this bill,” Wolcott told reporters.  The Michigan lawmaker voiced fears that some dairymen and other food producers might refuse to submit to further controls. And he said there vvasi danger of a “famine” iii meats! and other foods because of un-{ certainties in the bill whether, controls ever will be restored on these items.    t  48.

July 23.- (ZP) > —Red-haired Jean Bates, former secretary in the Washington office of a munitions combine, said today that Joseph Freeman and Henry Garsson had asked her to be “hazy” in testifying before the senate war investigating committee.  She testified that Freeman ani Garsson, officials in the combine, had attempted to “play upon my sympathy” when she met their request with a refusal to “perjure myself.”  They were particularly anxious she said, to prevent her from telling the committee, under oath, that she had seen Albert Jacobson. $9,975-a-year w ar department consultant, in the combine’s Washington office.  The conversation with her former employers, she related, took place on July 12 the same day she appeared before an executive session of the committee to tell what she knew about the affairs of the combine.  She said that Mrs. Freeman called her away from her brother's birthday party to the Freeman home where she met both Freeman and Garsson.  They asked her first what she had told tho committee in private session, she said. and then quick ly got to tile point of Jacobson.
