Binns was having anything but good luck at the rodeo Thursday night. He’s a highranking performer but things went haywire in a big way for that one night. He had a trouble-making calf and also dashed out too soon from the barrier and the time and 10-second penalty made it 31.6 seconds for the tie—out of the money; a long chase and stubborn steer required 22.4 for his usual best event — bulldogging: his steer didn't stay down and had to be re-tripped and his 27.8 was just too long.  A bright, almost-full moon came up in time to see most of the I rodeo performance and also ] obligingly give abundant light for i pedestrians and drivers thronging from the arena to their cars after the show*.  Fans Take lo Race Events, Judging In Big Way Here  Saturday Morning Brings Quarter Horse Sale, Afternoon More Racing  Do folks like horses? Just drift out to the Ada R o d e o grounds these mornings or afternoons.  But you’d better be there promptly to get a choice seat in the shaded grandstand or most of 2,500 or more others will be there before you.  The Thursday morning crowd out to watch the Quarter Horse halter class judging of the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association was surpassed by that of Friday morning, with the grandstand filled.  There was something of the old fashioned county fair picture there with handlers and horses moving about for the judges while onlookers watched, listened and compared opinions and notes.  Sale Saturday Morning  Saturday morning brings the 40-head consignment sale at which some of the finest quarter horses in the southwest will be put up for auction.  Saturday afternoon also will feature races, roping, cutting and reining.  And those races — the first crowd, on Thursday afternoon, had about 2,750 people there and they liked w r hat they saw’ so well that the Friday afternoon crowd was larger and Saturday's is due to be biggest of all.  “Here They Come”  The excited shout of “here  they come” comes out naturally as the racing quarter horses break from the gates and light out for the finish line 220 yards away.  Quick starting is a quarter horse attribute and counts heavily in the races where the running is at top speed from the starting line to the finish.  And those lithe, compact quarter horses can run in a what that excites even the spectators who are not accustomed to horse racing.  (tray Badger, for instance, in one race Thursday covered the i 20 yards in 1.4 seconds.  Most of the races are close with two or three standouts battling for the top spot.

Some distance toward town a hurrying car hit a visiting round-upper s horse. Three angered riders attempted to drag the driver from the car to work him over, while he resisted and women in the car endeavored to push off the men.  When the patrolman arrived he was in charge in about tw*o seconds, speaking sternly and definitely, knowing just what and how to do, and things calmed last.  Friday morning all concerned met in the county attorney’s office, talked it over at length, decided there was some fault on both sides — one for impatient driving and the other for going into such hot tempered action I and left satisfied.

About the neatest item of the whole evening’s entertainment came when the orchestra, after playing ‘Redwing” at the announcer's request when the Kio-was started out of the arena, slipped into "One Little, Two Little, Three Little Indians” and had half the folks humming or patting feet to its time.  Sunday afternoon the champion of the meet here meets the Texas champion in one of the rodeo finale features.  Work of the quarter horses trained in cowpony duties also draws interested watching from the stands.  Winners of the quarter horses judging contest held Thursday morning are now available. Two-year-old and three-year-old stud horses were judged with tw*o horses raised by Bob Wei mer on his ranch at Council Hill, Oklahoma, winning.  Red Star Joe, owned by Torn Mooney of Greenville, Texas, was chosen Grand Champion, j Red Star Joe was raised by Wei-mer and sold to Mooney only a j short while ago.  !

Judging of the mares in the quarter horse division took place F riday morning but the results of the contest are not yet available.  Overparkers Begin To Pay  r Fines r   Tn eatly spring. East Central received an allocation of 20 family dwelling units which have been completed and are now* oe copied. Recently 35 additional units were allocated and construction of these has begun on the campus. These will probably require three months to complete, or two months after the opening of the fall semester. September 9. Even these will fall far short of our needs, says Dr. A. Linscheid, president.  Temporary living quarters are needed to accommodate 35 married couples for one or two months, or until the dwelling units now* under construction on the campus are readied for occu pantry.  Dr. Linscheid continues:  “If jou are not in position to rent a room for the year, you can be of great service to the veteran and the college if you can arrange living quarters for a married couple for one or two months.  "If you have a room available for one of two months, please call the college secretary s office, telephone 3040, and list your room. Your help is urgently needed. In helping the veteran, you will help the college. This will be greatly appreciated.”  Two Former Tupelo Girls Are Drowned  Grenaldo and Glorig Beauchamp Lose Lives In River in California  DRIVER SAVES HIS FARE AT HEAVY COST TO SELF  Just Now Can Get Rid Of Tickets by Putting Nickel In at Headquarters Meter  Police officials took a total of $5.07 out of the parking meter at headquarters, meaning that at least IOO persons had brought in overpaying tickets and paid their ‘fine'.

Aug 16. uV) j Eighteen defiant and singing I young Jew s w ere sentenced to I death today for bombing the Ha ] lfa railroad shops in a night at j tack. F’our Jewish women were givt i life term..  The sentences w ere passed soon after the outlawed Irgun Zvai Leu mi had exhorted the Jews to a general revolt and the Vaad Leumi, the national council foi Palestine Jews, asked the Jews in this strife-ridden land to begin a non-cooperation strike Sunday.  The 22 Jews were tried in absentia after they were ousted from the courtroom for singing and causing other disturbances during proceedings. After the military court reached its decisions, the* captives were led into the courtroom and seated on empty ammunition boxes facing the tribunal.  When the president started reading the verdict, the 22 Jews started singing "Hatikvah,” the Jewish hymn of nationalism, so loudly it was impossible to hear the courts sentence.  All 22 were captured at a road block which troops established a few* minutes after the* raid at Haifa, several weeks ago. The I defendants were accused of be hinging tee the outlawed Stern gang. violent Jewish under ground group.  Fleeing in a truck, the defe ndants encountered the road block, (smashed into a bren gun and opened fire. Soldiers returned fire and several of the defendants’ companions we*re killed. Others were wounded.  ^    ^    .    The workshops were bombed  one'to two rents for draught and during a week of terror in which bottled beer served in bars, restaurants and hotels.  2.

OPA officials said that ceiling increases for virtu ally all kinds of building materials will be announced soon, as u* quired by the new price control law.

OPA attributed these increases    *  to a cut in beer production, a recent boost in brewers’ ceilings, and an increase in freight rates.   1  The new ceilings fixed for used 1945 and 1946 automobiles, of lect ive Aug. 21, are generally "close” to maximum prices on ■new r;us, OPA said. Heretofore the ceiling on these models was the price the seller paid.  Book.
