A man and his wife wired a local hotel manager asking for reservations for the full five days of the event in Ada. The couple live in Louisville, Ky„ and are planning to enter a horse in the Ada Quartei-Horse show. Sign In New York The size of the growing Ada Rodeo is gaining nation wide recognition as a man recently returned from New York where he reported that he saw a sign stating that the Ada Rodeo will be held Aug. 14-18 this year. The sign further stated that the Ada event is the third largest rodeo in the world. \ It is the hope of rodeo officials that capacity crowds attend each of the five shows as such crowds will be needed for the Ada Rodeo to move up. Cheyenne, Wyo,, is now the only outdoor rodeo in the world that exceeds the Ada event in attendance. Tough Animals Obtained Animals used in the affair tl\js year will probably be the tough-I cst ever used in Ada, tougher than animals used in anv other I rodeo any place else in the,world. There will hr* enough seats available this year for a crowd of ; 12,000 people to attend each of the five performances with the addition of new seats. State inspectors were in Ada Saturday morning inspecting the rodeo grounds and seating facilities. The men are reported to have approved all the arrangements and were pleased with the new seats that have been constructed this year. * Osage Blue Stem Pastures Gel Rain on before would of the deficit for cal year.

Following an eight inch rain on July I, 1945, weather figures for Pawhuska showed only traces of rain on nine days since then. With winter snows the year’s rainfall totaled 4.25 inches compared to a normal 35 or 40 inches.

He bolstered those hopes with economy orders to federal agencies that could tighten the strings of the federal purse to the point of affecting veterans and the 48 states. In Red This Year Boosting both revenue and spending estimates above the peacetime record figures he issued seven months ago, the president said it now appears the government will go into the red by $1,900,000,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1947. That is less than half the $4.-500,000.000 deficit he foresaw last January, due mainly to the sudden raising of receipts estimates by a solid $8,100,000,000 to an unprecedented peacetime total of $39,600,000,000. That jump in the prospective tax take, he added, would have balanced the fiscal 1947 budget and provided a surplus, too, of congress hadn’t voted with some degree of presidential approval—measures adding $4,400.-000,000 to earlier expenditures estimates. Where Increases Added Tin* president set out the cost of the legislation, expressed in billions of dollars, as: Terminal leave pay, $2.4; increased pay for military personnel, $0.6; increased veterans pensions and liberalized benefits, $0.8; housing, excluding defense housing, net of receipts, $0.2: post office department pay increase, $0.2. Of those measures, the president recommended only tin* two Philippine itrms. But he did not make any fight on others, and he put no blame on congress for upsetting his budget piogiam by passing them. • Still further additions arising from program expansions and from outlays deferred from fiscal 1946 gave a net lift, after offsets. of $5,500,000,000 to last January’s spending estimate and sent the revised total to the peacetime record of $141,500,000,-000. Directs Cut For Military The president’s statement indicated he had already headed off or directed cutbacks in spending, mostly by the w^ar and navy departments and the maritime commission, that would have piled at least $4,200,000,000 more onto the spending total. And it promised he w-ould keep trying “throughout the fiscal year to reduce expenditures whenever and wherever they can be reduced without harm to our security and the general welfare.” With that in mind, he told reporters at a budget explanatory conference that he is still hopeful that the presently expectable deficit can yet be wiped out and the budget balanced in the current fiscal year. In an immediate follow*-up ho sent out still further orders to hold down spending of all kinds in this fiscal year and the starting next July.
