The regular meeting night will be Monday of each week at 7:30 p. rn.  Those members of the local unit of the National Guard were called on to introduce themselves to the rest of the group and give briefly some of their experiences in the war. Each member is a veteran and most had seen plenty of services overseas.  Capt. Sarrett told his men that an extensive recruiting drive is under way and that every member of the group should make an effort to find additional men who are interested in joining the organization.  Several Ada business men were present for the occasion and gave support to the men of the units.  truce by which Wallace will make no public utterance until the end of the Paris peace conference next month does not settle any of the basic issues ne raised —— either concerning American relations with Russia or Wallaces own future in the cabinet.  ^ r - Truman did, however, act night  swif tly to make public a joint army-navy declaration that this country has no thought of making war on the Soviet Union.

Sept. 19 -(/Pf—The criminal court of appears reversed a Pittsburgh county manslaughter conviction of Luther Bartley Isaac yesterday and ordered a new trial.

The appeals court said the trial court was in error in not instructing the jury as to possible conviction for second degree manslaughter or assault and battery.  retary of war Patterson and navy secretary Forrestal became the latest to jump into the affray.  4u  a  ? e Lter to Mr. Truman which the ch ie/ executive made public last night shortly after he ended his 2 hour and 23 minute conference with Wallace,, Patterson and f orrestal denounced as untrue a Wallace charge that one “school of military thinking” advocates preventive war” against Russia before Russia makes atomic bombs.  Reassurance To Russia  Release of the letier was widely regarded as a gesture to reassure the Kremlin of America’s peaceful intentions toward the Soviet Union.  As for the public debate over relation with Russia which Wallace began in New York last thursday, the secretary himself made clear that he had yielded only temporarily to the president s efforts to silence him. The Paris peace conference is tentatively slated to end October 15, and Wallace presumably is holding hrs fire only until that time.  rho generally assumed purpose of the temporary arrangement is void embarrassing Byrnes in his dealing with Soviet foreign commissar Molotov and others at  IV' 1  a .
