HOPE TO PROTECT VETS OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 2-day conference of FSA land appraisers is being held in Oklahoma City by State FSA Di- rector who snys he wishes to keep returned veterans who .gel secu- rity loans for farm purchases from being plunged too deeply into debt for the land. Said Hayes today: "We are reviewing our appraisal procedure in this state and trying to get current on pres- ent land values to make sure we do riot sleep into an inflationary buying spree. .In making loans to retu.-ned veterans for t h c purchase of farms. "There is little sense in loaning a veteran money for farm pur- chase if the price he has to pay for the land is so high he cannot hope to pay off the loan and make a living from the earnings of the farm." -But grass-fed cattle are not I moving off ranges to slaughter pens in numbers the government i had expected. Department ex- perts said uncertainty over fu- ture prices tends to .delay mar- ketings. This picture of the beef situa- tion was depicted as Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson prepared to make a radio talk at tonight oh gov- ernment price policies on farm products. Aides said the secre- tary was expected to discuss the livestock situation. Movement Off Ranges Slow This is the season when cattle normally start.moving off ranges in large numbers. But the move- ment has been slow since live- stock price controls were re-es- tablished Sept. I: Hence, beef supplies in butcher shops are meager. Cattle fed on southern and western ranges usually start mar- ketward as soon as pastures begin drying up, which sometimes is as early as July. The movement usually reaches its peak in Oc- tober. Two Range Cattle Markets Range cattle have two markets (A) Slaughterers and' Mid- western corn belt- feeders Slaughterers bid for the fatter, grass-fed stock, -while feeders buy lean and moderately-fattened animals. These are put on grain feed for severakmonths to fatten them to heavier'weights and bet- ter quality. In discussing the smaller num- ber of- range cattle reaching slaughterers this, month officials cited several reasons, among them: 3. Some western cattlemen are holding back in the-hope of high- er prices, either through a hike in OPA Ceilings or possible removal of price controls. Feeders Bidding Strongly 2. Corn-belt feeders have been bidding heavily against slaughter- ers for cattle which might go ;ilher to the slaughter pens or to teed lots. With a record corn crop n prospect and with feed prices expected to decline, feeders see a chance of making money by pro- ducing heavier weight cattle. 3. Some cattlemen, are waiting until after January 1 for income- ax purposes.

The proposition is to demili- tarize Bulgaria's 180-mile frontier with Greece "to the same extent" as Italy's frontier with Yugoslav- ia. Only Brazil and the Slav dele- gates opposed the move. W. R.

At the same time he said the United States now held a threat to peace in "monopolist posses- sion" of atomic weapons, but that such monopolist possession could not long be maintained. In any event, he said, wars could not be won with atomic bombs. He also charged that ing place now and the real dan- ger of a 'new which does not exist at Stalin said. Stalin's replies to Worth were his first answers to any foreign correspondent's letter since March 22, when he told Associat- ed Press Correspondent Eddy Gilmore he believed in the Unit- ed Nations as an instrument of peace. At that time he told Gil- more he believed "neither the nations nor their armies are seeking another and he urged a campaign to expose "war-mongers."

'Guess Who' Game Is On Truman's Surprise Appoint- ments Widen Field For Ambassadors to Britain By ALEX H. SINGLETON WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 President Truman's freshly stressed emphasis on surprise ap- pointments served to widen the field today in the "guess who" contest over a new ambassador to Great Britain. The chief executive's complete unheralded selection of W. Aver- ell Harriman to step into Henry A. Wallace's post as secretary of commerce recalled at least two other instances in which Mr. Tru- man caught even some of his closest friends way off base. One was his pick of J. A. Krug to succeed Harold L. Ickes as sec- retary of the interior; the other his appointments of Fred M. Vin- son, then secretary of the treas- ury, to be chief justice. Could Name Missourian Barring the selection of a Mis- sourian and officials wouldn't discount a choice from the presi- dent's home dominant factors figured in the speculation over a successor to Harriman in the prized post. London diplomatic These' factors are the possible candidate's pocket book, political stature, personal health and past record. Alphubetically, they stack up: here is how Salvation Army's First Day Brings In Good Response Civic minded workers left kick-off breakfast Monday morn- ing with the thought of complet- ing the Salvation Army drive in one week and the of the first day was even better than expected, with turned in to drive authorities. Adjutant Henry VanDce, held of Salvation Army work in Ada. said Tuesday morning that drive usually takes about 30 days to complete, but expects the 000 asked for to be raised within 10 days this year. Individuals were contacted 1. Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia, soon to be out of a job due to the state law which prevents an incumbent from succeeding him- self. Because of his political phil- osophy, ArnalPs choice might help woo some members of that demo c r a t i c faction .left dis- gruntled by Wallace's dismissal from the cabinet. Clayton Rig 2. Undersecretary of State Will a successful businessman with persona] assets equn) to'the financial and sociul obligations involved. Clayton, however, now holds down a post of such fnr- reacbinfi economic responsibility that it is unlikely he would be sidetracked to Britain. 3. General Mark W.

Bob Sievert, who is.heading the drive in Ada this week, points but that individuals will not be given a chance to take advontage of the plan.a'gain until next year. This type of enrollment is of- 'ered to individuals only one each year and Blue Cross officials are loping that everyone wantii.g to oin will do so this week. Last year, there were a num- aer of persons wanting to partici- >ate after the drive was over, but t was the same situation as no applications are accepted after he drive. Clark. Greater returns for amount in- ested. Ada News Want Ads. Speculation here has centered chiefly around the fact that a number of Mr. Truman's recent diplomatic appointments have been from military ranks. But Clark's tasks in Austria remain of such magnitude that there is doubt he would be transferred to even as important a post as am- bassador to Britain. 4. James Dunn, now ambassa- enough to _ has been mentioned chiefly been use of his stand in fiivor of close Anglo- American cooperation. Justice Jackson, 5. Supreme Court Justice Rob- ert Jackson. His choice could serve the double purpose of fill- ing the post with a democrat who has gone along with new deal policies, and at the .same time case ;.i strained siluiition on the na- tion's high tribunal where he and Justice Hugo Black are at odds. 6. Joseph P. Kennedy. Here the speculation stems chiefly from the fact thnt Kennedy's choice might prove welcome in the polit- ical seesaw territory of the north- east However, Kennedy, a former ambassador to London, incurred the wrath of many Britons by his early pessimism over their wartime chance of victory. Monday morning and most of the money was collected through the contacts made by men with the drive. The business district of Ada. will- be covered this week, but industries that usually make large donations will not make do- nations before next week because officials of those companies have to be contacted before the dona- tions are made. It was explained thnt the city can be covered much quicker than the industrial fitms because donations from businesses have to come through a channel while private citizens can just; reach back on the hip and chip in to the cause. Because of the amount of work done by the organization last year, the goal is expected to be reached easier this year than in previous years; however, it was explained that the goal has not been reached. A number of men were still working Tuesday morning and some will continue the remainder of the week. NEW WILCOX POOL IS FOUND IN NOBLE COCNTT PERRY.
