Over Biff When Started Here The Blue Cross Plan was first offered to the people of Ada in March 1945 when the Ada Ro- tary club, sponsored a communi- ty enrollment drive. At that lime 110 business firms enrolled their cmpioyees and dependents, making a total of partici- pants in the plan. The gratify- ng results of this civic-sponsored drive paved tho way for similar campaigns in 15 other small cities 'rMho stale, Sievert said.

Fantastic, Says Vandenberg Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich) the U. S. delegate, said the situa- tion presented by the prolonged debate was "fantastic." The Brit- ish-proposed annex to the Ro- manian treaty would require that country to restore or replace al- lied nationals' property losses in 'oil fields, annul discriminatory legislation and admit key admin- istrative officials and technical experts into the country to oper- ate the wells.

GREEN WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 (JP) _ Henry A. Wallace definitely has decided not to give active aid to the democratic party in Novem- ber s congressional elections, inti- mate friends said today, but that is about the only certain thing in his plans. The ousted secretary of com- merce, secluded on his first day n.s a private citizen, was report- ed undecided whether to lake the slump against current Amer- ican foreign policy before the Pans peace conference ends. But, his friends said, Wallace now is firmly convinced that he cannot take part in the political campaign despite his potential in- fluence in keeping the "nexv deal and left-wing elements of the party in the Truman fold. The tousle-headed antagonist of Secretary of State Byrnes be- lieves that the ballot contest for control or congress hinges on .oreicn policy, it was slated, and t .hat ho cannot in conscience sup- port the democrats since Presi- dent Truman, head of the party, has repudiated his views and at the'A'ldridge ho- tel. The Salvation Army carries the major relief load here, takes care of transients who are therefore seldom a problem in residential areas emergency aid to families in distress, carries on religious and social welfare work.

The agriculture department said today present sugar rations will continue at least through 1946 and any significant increases are not likely until next year's crops start moving to market in vol- ume.
