A little later five submarines of the six that had been submerged in the lagoon were found to be resting on the bottom. Whether they were crushed or had sunk through soul * defects in their air lines was not known.  Stronger Than Nagasaki Bomb  Probably the most powerful man-made force ever loosed— perhaps ever stronger than the bomb that razed most of Nagasaki last August —the atomic bomb did not immediately sink as many of the 75 target vessels as observers had expected.  The true extent of tho damage is Mill unknown, however. Ships still were “hot" with radioactivity many hours later. Navy men and (Scientists edged ever closer and re-entered the lagoon with sensitive instruments, trying to determine the danger and ascertain the full damage as soon as possible.  The radioactivity was so great that two tugs which went to the rescue of the Saratoga, under orders from tast force Commander  Vice Adm. W. H. P. Blandy to try to beach her, had to turn back and let the gallant old lady die alone.  Two Battleships Listing  The battleship New York and the Japanese battleship Nagato were listing, evidently damaged, as were the battered carrier Independence, the destroyer Hughes, the transport Fallon and the heavy cruiser Pensacola.  A reef and ten miles of blue Pacific separated this ship from the target fleet when the bomb went off. Observers had their glasses on the mast of a small landing craft that was above the submerged atom bomb,  A voice on the ship’s loud speaker droned off the seconds and the world’s fifth atomic bomb was set off by remote radio controls.  An almost incredibly white dome of eater rose where the slim mast had stood. It glowed momentarily. Then it spread, at first wide and flat, to perhaps half a mile in breadth. Suddenly it shot upward vvith lightning speed.  [ At the top of the dome, the ; (Continued on Page IO.

A question as to how the city * Sadler, president of Texas could benefit from Christian  university, Ft. Worth, told the members of the graduals class at East Central State eoiTege th.s morning at commencement exercises held in the college auditorium.  Using as his subject “A Bond of Civilization.** D:. Sadler explained tnat the world has come to the end of an era in the history of human life and that the basic question now is will the new day of the era which is being entered be stormy or a day of sunshine in the new era.  Three Problems Now Th ee problems now face everyone The elimination of tyrannical dictators, which has been accomplished to some extent, the creation of an adequate and workable world government, and actual establishment of order and decency on earth. Citizens of the world do not, and for at least a century will not. realize the tremendous debt of World War II .n money, material of war, and loss of life.  D: Sadler pointed out that the world is now approaching the second stage and cited the various ! from conferences that have been held I they to create a workable world government.  But. trie problems of such are intricate and d.fficult but no more so than those facing tin* problems I not  the money I being made av ailable by the government for preliminary planning of the projects was discus-I sed bv the councilmen and about 20 citizens. The council deferred decision.  According to subn.itted plans, it will cost about $70,000 to get! the hangar at the Chauncey Air-1 port put into operation, but on the other hand the hangar cost 1  only about $22,000.  Harold Norris pointed out toi the counc il that he could not see why  it should cost so much for i the construction and putting into  owns  :??  rT l ares *  on «’ <*olt.  operation the hangar that had    '......  been obtained at a bargain of $22,000. ,  He further  exception in water rates and de-tided that there should be no : charity cases because that was  1  no way for a municipality to do business. It was further decided I by the council that there be no exceptions made in the location of parking meters. r_ Acting City Manager Luke B Dodds made a report to the council that there are nt least BOO dead water meters in Ada.  The manager said that Rev. Mitchell Epperson was appointed for five years, Casper Duffer for two years, Mrs. Harry Evans for one year, Mrs. Byron A. Lasiter for three years and Charley Soott for four years as members of the library board.  City Owns Livestock It was reported that the city    a two  year old heifer, a brindle cow and a yearling.

'A**—With one and possibly two exceptions the democratic ticket for Oklahoma’s November general election is now known.  The one definite democratic exception is a nominee for the office of insurance commissioner, to which Jess C. Read had been renominated without opposition previous to his death last Saturday. State Chairman H. I. Hinds of the democratic ceptral committee said the group would name another nominee to oppose John C. Burns, republican, in the general election.  One Contest Expected  While Carl Albert. McAlester attorney, led Bill Steger of Durant by 95 votes in a complete Unofficial tabulation of the Ihird district congressional race. It remains for the state election Iwiard to announce official returns to certify Albert’s marginal victory.  Some observers, predicting a contest of the count, said an error in tabulations or the arrival of additional war ballots might be sufficient to alter the unofficial tally substantially.  Meanwhile, as Roy J Turner laid plans for the reorientation of his gubernatorial contest in the general election against Olney Flvnn, republican nominee and Tulsa oil man, Dixie Gilmer conceded the democratic nomination in a message of congratula tion to his runoff opponent.  Up to Turner Now—Gilmer  Gilmer’s message to Turner declared that “a burden of the fight for good government rests with you. Now more than any other time in Oklahoma history strong leadership is needed."  In an earlier statement Gilmer expressed his gratification of the vote given him and asserted that my position in Oklahoma politics remains unchanged."  ‘I have been a democrat all my life, and I am still a demo-  57* . •     sa .' c *\    "I    subscribe to  the high principles of my party without reservation and will a1-1 ways do so. at all times to and fight corruption wheneVer and wherever it exists  Truman’s Name Is Expected Today On Bill Reviving OPA  Senate Voles For Measure     :■                      few.     an  PLENTY (HEAP Hager Beavers when it r ones to Tow Army has termed as “junk", these raj to enthuse i clamber yard buying up radio equipment at the rate of 211 cent per  pi iced radio equipment v hic t the lin«nigh an Atlanta, Georgia, junk-lound.

There are still plenty of good reserved seats left and will be for several days. according to Manager Earl McKendree.  Pete Adams, world famous announcer of rodeos, has been contracted to announce the Ada Rodeo again this year, which will increase the interest in the event, Adams knows the cowboys personally and thus can better announce a rodeo than many lesser announcers.

Name of Capt.

What ( ap ta m Woodside will do when he quits is a matter of conjecture—hut he is known to be interested in some task, pre-! ferablv teaching at a university or college.

July 25 (ZP) Joe Hamilton, executive sec-letary of the Oklahoma commission for crippled children, said today there were 59 know n cases of polio in the state but that total did not indicate an epidemic.  Hamilton said that rn 1943 there were 132 cases in crippled children’s hospital here. That hospital today has 36.  Of course," said Hamilton, "one case is too many. But as far as we can tell there is no cause for alarm or no reason to believe there will be an epidemic."  A professor says that success conies to those who move their work. But not just so they can put their feet up on the desk.  Police Chief Quenton Blake told reporters Thursday morning that there were 12 unpaid traffic violation tickets in the hands of the police. The holders of these tickets have never reported to the station and they will he notified by telephone Thursday to report. If they fail to report after tills they will be picked up and fined double by city police  P o lice department officials made one arrest Wednesday to raise the total for the week to four. One man was arrested for disturbance and fined $8.75. One girl was picked un on failure to report to the station and pay a stay bond for HO which sin* had signed.  Ada traffic was on the quiet side Wednesday with no accidents being reported. No robberies. burglaries or any other crimes were reported.  ♦  Correction  The Ada News summary on Wednesday of official vote totals had one error—knocking 1,000 votes off John D. Conner’s for the county. It should have read 3,334 for Conner, which put him ahead of Hastings, his opponent, who got 2.924.  Greater returns for amount invested. Read Ada News Want Ads.
