County Agent Hailey has visited county fairs for the past 23 years and the Pontotoc county Free Fair this year is the first time that he hasn't seen a watermelon entered. He said it was unusual because there were plenty of good melons grown in the county this year. Exhibitors and officials of the fair welcomed several hundred Ada residents to the fair Tuesday afternoon and night. Fair officials were compiling results Wednesday moi-ning and reported that if everything went on schedule the books would be FIVE CENTS THE COPY ROY J.

The painting by Signe Larson, deaf mute artist, at the center of the Art exhibit, has caused con- siderable comment. It is the work of a devout Christian, done for the young people of one of Ada's churches. That excellent Plcnsnn1. Hill educational exhibit (their Prof. J. L. Wilmoth likes it, too) has a poem by 8th-gradcr Iris Ryan, reminiscent of the dark days of boy she knew had been captured by the Japs: "My eyes are swimming in dew, For this is a very sad day, The skies that once were blue, Have turned a gloomy gray." That's just one verse of it. completed Wednesday. Pleasant Hill Club Wins Pleasant Hill 4-H club won championship honors in a club booth contest at the Pontotoc county Free Fair Tuesday with 20 members of the club partici- pating 100 per cent in various departments of the fair. Coached by Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Wilmouth, teachers at Pleasant Hill, the club is composed of every boy or girl over 10 years of age enrolled in school and there was not a member who did not participate in thp fair. Latin 4-H club won second place in the booth contest with third place going to Vanoss in the 4-H division. Jesse II. D.

"Doc" Granger talking with tongue and two hands in praise of A. C. Griffith's individual farm booth, rich with produce includ- ing Yellow Dent corn and White Clover honey. He was recalling that A. C.'s father raised eleven children out there on a below- top-quality 120 acres, and still some people say it can't be done and go off homeseeking to Cal- ifornia. There was a Walt Disney color cartoon episode in the poultry house. The Silver Wyandotte rooster was crowing loud (he and his fine-feathered feminine friends are something to crow aboutl but nearby a Pekin duck was talking the whole thing down with his pessimistic "quack, quack."

They are the girls who prepared the" love- ly things to eat and wear which you see there. Brinkley of Francis was the lead- ing exhibitor with his Rhode Is- land Reds walking away with many first-place honors.

There was an unusually goo number of entries in the hog d vision. E. E. Morgan and son ex Jersey hog the fair. Calvin Pennington o Vanoss was the top exhibitor o Chester White hogs. Members of the Napier 4-H club visited the fair morning. Each of the boys car riod a notebook and pencil anc each was taking notes on th winners of departments in which he specialized.

Ada Tonight Goes Back in Business In National Guard Twenty-five years ago Ada went into the National Guard business with Capt. Bob Kerr as commanding officer of the first unit organized here. On a night in-July of that year a guard field artillery battery was inspected and activated. Tonight, not long after, another war, Ada reenters the National Guard picture with in- spection and activation, and with the public invited to be on hand. The occasion is scheduled for 8 o'clock at the National Guard armory north of the city: It is planned for a rather in- formal program, with the basic part coming when the visiting inspection officer insoects the armory and the two local units that are ready for activation. Enlisted men won't be' in uni- form and the units are far from Release of Letter Without Truman Consent May Have Hastened Decision By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER Sept. 18 Top administration officials said today President Truman has. de- cided to tell Secretary of Com- merce Henry A. Wallace he must quit talking about American Foreign Policy or get out of the cabinet. Wallace was due at'the White House-at p.m. Less than 24 hours earlier he made Mr. Tru- man's approval a letter he wrote the chief executive last July Urging that this country agree to "reasonable Russian guarantees of security." even at the risk of "appeasement" cries. "We have little to Wallace said in. calling, for a "shift in some of our thinking about international matters."

Supplementing decision yesler- which consigned most sur- plus fleet units to the big four for division and requiring Italy to destroy the rest, today's unan- imous action lets Italy keep two oattleships, four cruisers and four destroyers, as well as minor Jnits such as 16 torpedo boats, 20 corvettes and auxiliaries. The army's armament is restricted to 200 medium and heavy tanks among other items. Italy Keeps Few, Warships Under the annex adopted, Italy may keep the old .1912 battleships Andrea Doria and Caio Duilio, the cruisers Luigi Di Savoia Duca Degli Abruzzi, Giuseppe Garibal- di, Raimondo Montecuccooli and Luigi Cadorna, and the destroy- ers Carabiniere, Grunntiere, Gre- cale and Nicoloso Da Recco.

The action in restoring ceilings on meat meals already has resulted in restaurant clos- ings in some parts of the nation, the spokesmen said. Other eating places may shut down in the near future because of the OPA move, they added. Crisis Exists In New York, George R. Le Sauvage, chairman of the govern- ment relations committee of the national restaurant association, and John L. Hennessy, chairman of the food committee of the Am- erican hotel association, said in a joint statement a test of the OPA right to roll back the prices would be taken to the U. S. em- ergency court of appeals. "This latest action by OPA has brought about a crisis, which is threatening the very life of the public feeding they said.

The president specifics! "dis- approved" release of the letter for general publication on the grounds that his approval might be misconstrued abroad as ap- plying to :its contents as well. Truman Decision Too Late But his an earlier one by White House Press Secretary Charles G. too late. Copies had been distrib- uated among reporters at the commerce department after it had been learned that a colum- nist was about to make the doc- ument public.' It was this fact that had led Ross to ghe Wallace a tentative go-ahead to release the letter. Thus it broke into print as the week-old cabinet drama moved toward this afternoon's climax act in Mr. Truman's office. Whether Wallace would choose to keep his .position in silence or. get out and fight for the for- eign policy he believes America should have was his own secret for the moment. But at least some of those .close to him expressed belief he would elect to get out rather than be gagged. Swiftly, these other details' were learned from top adminis- tration officials: 1.

His plan to seek presi- j Jr. dentiaL approval of this address Russian .treaty on atomic energy, thj peace conference also appear- ed headed for a showdown on a British effort to. prohibit atom bomb manufacture in the beaten Balkan nations. The British ing to add atomic fission weapons and controlled torpedoes to the list of arms prohibited in Bulgaria has met with violent Slav opposition in the military commission, which had the mat- ter on Monday's agenda but put it off with a .decision to complete work on the Italian treaty first. Consideration pf the banned weapons clause of the Hungarian treaty also was delayed. Now the commission has passed provisionally on all of its Italian treaty clauses and has only to consider Italian appeals before reaching the test fight on pro- hibited weapons for Soviet-backed Bulgaria. And the explosive is- sue it had sought to cool off by delay had become hotter than ever as a result of thu release yes- terday of his letter on atomic en- ergy to President Truman. The British unobtrusively slip- ped the words "atomic bombs" in- to an amendment last week which added controlled torpedoes to the list of possible modern including guided missies Bulgaria "-ghaU not possess, con- struct or experiment with." The slav delegations spotted the words at once, objected and block- ed all immediate consideration of the proposal, putting it on the military commission's schedule for later discussion. Britain protested that the Slavs had supported a similar proposal for the Italian treaty, but the slavs replied, in effect: "Democratic Bulgaria cannot be compared to Italy, one of the principal initia- tors of imperialism and totali tar- Terming the OPA action "dis- they said it was "the public feeding operators' contention and always will be that our prices should be based on present costs plus customary mark-up."

No successful moves were repor- ted to bring ship operators' nego- tiating committees and the strik- ing CIO national maritime union together in New York. Talks were broken off Sunday night when the operators deman- ded that security watches be re- turned to struck vessels. The NMU had withdrawn the watches earlier in the day. On the west coast, there also were no signs of conferences be- tween the operators and the strik- ing CIO marine cooks and stew- ards union, and the independent marine firemen, oilers wipers and watertonders, which struck, with the NMU Friday at the end of the AFL wage stoppage to en- force demands for wage parity with AFL seamen. .The operators have insisted the men return to work before re- suming negotiations. But AFL' maritime workers trudged back to work on ships in New York and other Atlantic and Gulf ports yesterday after Joseph Curran, president of the NMU, ordered that picketing be restrict- ed to ClO-contracled vessels.

Roy J nominee for van of party candidates into today and, as the principal speak- er at a five-county rally held at Glenwood Park, launched a vig- orous appeal for voters to study the issues nnd to judge them for the welfare of- the state. He called attention to leader- ship furnished by the party dur- ing the dark days after 1032 when the easy way would have been to sit back and criticize. Said Turner, "The fundamental issue, which is always at stake between Republican and Demo- cratic leadership, is whether we shall have government dedicated to the well being of all our peo- ple, or government dedicated to special privileges for the few." Turning to the Oklahoma sit. uation, he called attention to Ok- lahoma's 39 years of statehood, all under Democratic administra. 'ons. What Has Been Done He pointed to building of schools, hospitals, olhcr vast in- stitutions, to no ad valorem tax or state purposes, to one of the owest per capita debts in the nation, to a high place in amount Mid in old age assistance, to blind, to a low gross debt. Minerals, livestock, agriculture, land values reveal a high among the states while in the stale is still a pioneer.
