Ada News Want Ads.. By the Associated Presr Oklahoma's weather forecaster came up Friday with a cautious prediction that it might be "slightly cooler" by Saturday but that was no indication the change would be noticeable on anything but a thermometer. The extended forecast for next Week also held scant hope of re- lief from the heat that is sear- ing Oklahomans and their crops. Immediate prospects are for continued hot weather, with only a hint of some relief in the north- west part of. the state this after- noon and in all but the extreme southeast section by Saturday. Thursday's readings disclosed only one place in all Oklahoma with a temperature, was Boise City, which had a comparatively cool high of 93 and a low of 66. Alva continued to cling to the doubtful distinction of the state's most torrid spot with 113 degrees, four more than were recorded at Waurika. Waynoka had 10H, and 107 readings were reported by Guthrie, Bartlesville, Chand- ler, Newkirk, Ponca City and McAlester; Elsewhere the heat ranged from 106 at Enid, Pryor and Ardmore to 101 at Frederick, Qklahoma City and Olimulgee.

It All Adds Up To One Conclusion- Stay In the Shade There is just no telling how hot it was at the corner oi Main and Broadway Thursday after- noon because a thermometer reg- istering 120 degrees would not handle the upward-moving mer- cury. It took three minutes at 2 p. m. for the mercury to go past the 120 mark and one hour later the time was cut in half for the mercury to go past the same mark. The thermometer was placed in the sun, but in a position to catch any stirring air, and. still it wouldn't register high enough. On the other side of the street n the sun, the mercury stopped at 104 while one block south a ligh of 105 was registered. A thermomether being carried on the street registered 104.

S'ale Cotton Crop Far Down for '46 OKLAHOMA CITY. Aug. Oklahoma's 1946 cotton crop, forecast at bales with conditions 66 per cent of normal, will be far short of the 10-year production average, ag- riculture department officials re- ported. The department said the yield however, is expected to be in ex- cess of the 1945 production of 28S.OOO 500-pound bales. Replantings as a result of ex- cessive spring rains, heat dam- age to early cotton and boll wee- vil infestations in late cotton were listed by the department as factors contributing to the sub- normal yield. The electrical manufacturing industry covers about 170 sub- divisions and more than distinguishable products.
