OKLAHOMA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. 1946  FIVE CENTS THE COPY  Johnston Countians Applaud Turner In Thursday Rally Talk  Turn Out Largt Crowd for Spociol Progrom, lorbociio And Fitk Fry on Bonks of Fonnington; Tumor Ouflinot Progrom *  Speaking to a crowd estimated at 500 persons, Roy J. Turner, democratic nominee for governor, told Tishomiitgo and Johnston county residents that better state government can be had by putting a democratic governor into office to work with the democrat representatives, who have already been elected in most cases.  Circus Surpassed Its Best of Other Years This Time  ♦ It was a county-wide affair that was held at the Tishomingo golf course Thursday afternoon that Turner spoke to the crowd. Tishomingo business and schools closed for the afternoon.  “What effect will state government have on our lives for the next four years if a republican governor is put into office as compared with the results that can  R\ng!fnE^Br^*‘anrBarnum k ^ attained with a democrat gov-BaJey have surpassed all their f,!;"®'' o«>ce? Turner asked  great shows of former years as    . .    .    e  far as circus fans of Ada and sur- i    statement by  rounding area are concerned -    government  and they came from over a 50-m:le radius.  The ‘b:g top’ was even bigger. The costumes were original and vaned as never before—and there were more and lovlier gals occupying most of them.  Music At Its Best The music was more of a fea- I lure, fitted more closely to the I series of events taking place under the giant canvas.  Even the horses seemed sleeker  must work together to get the most results.  Turner heartily approves improvement of stale colleges and said that an agricultural school is no exception. He plans, if elected. to further the work being done by agricultural schools.

Another part of the program proposed by Turner includes modern free textbooks that will operate on a plan that meets the favor of the public. He further propo.sed improvement of the facilities of negro schools in the state.  Glen John.^n Speaks  State Senator Joe Bailey Cobb was master of ceremonies of the affair. Among those persons introduced were former Governor William H. Murray, former Congressman Tom D. McKeown and all John.ston county office holders in addition lo Glen D. Johnson.  Johnson offered a word of reassurance on the proposed program of the democratic party. Col. Clive Murray, formerly head of the state selective service, followed Johnson on the program.  Following the political speaking. the crowd adjourned to the banks of Pennington creek where baibecue and fish with all the trimmings were served.  ipping C lowns and (Towns  The t.ne clowns, more of them with muiP new, clever costumes and stunts.  And perhaps the finest parade featuie ever presented by a circus. that “Toyland Parade’’ which had oldsters and youngsters alike pointing and oh-ing and ah-ing.  Everything — equipment, costuming—was fresh and spic and span and .so were the acts.  It added up to grand enter-tam.ment or a sizeable afternoon cr >wd and a throng of more than fc.hOO at* the night show, and a big new crop of Ringling fans among the smaller children seeing for the first time the dazzling g.-eatest show of all.  But one small boy still wasn't entirely satisfied, for he told his parents, “I want lo see the Ring-l.ng Brothels.”  Today's Boosts On Prkes—Pols, Pans And Window Shades  Kerr, Fellow Army Officers of War I To Hold Reunion  It's a Headache!

Pitt Power Supply Lower  Neor Donger Point With No Now Coiitroct in Sight For Power Employes  PITTSBURGH. Sept. 27 (/P)— The pow’er supply in this industrial city sank nearer the danger point today as a strike of 3,200 employes of the Duquesne Light Co. entered its fourth day—with wage negotiations continuing but no new contract in sight.  Public tenseness relaxed somewhat as an early morning union order sent 2,800 streetcar motormen hurrying back to their jobs to man trolleys w’hich had stood idle since 5 a.m. yesterday, crippling the city’s transportation system and stranding thousands of workers.  Limited Street Car Service  The Pittsburgh Railways Co. announced it w'ould continue to give the “limited” service it had been offering since the power strike started — 50 per cent of normal “off-peak” operation, which meant that about 225 of the system’s 1^00 cars w'ould be running.  About 28,000 giber w’orkers remained idle as a result of power curtailments.  Electricity in DuQuesne Light’s lines overnight was reported at 31 per cent of normal, compared with 40 per cent yesterday and 45 per cent the day before.  Pickets marched in front of the company’s pow'er stations and sub.stations, w'here supervisory workers and officials of the firm tried lo keep enough current flowing to supply vital needs. Some power was being furnished by other companies and many concerns put private generating plants in operation.  Coal Trucks Turned Back  Six coal thicks were halted by pickets at the company’s big Phillips plant near suburban Glenwillard today. The trucks were turned back from the normal unloading entrance, an “employes’ gate,” but Were permitted to unload at a* more distant gale, too far away for the slim force of supervisors to move the coal. Pickets told the truck drivers no further unloading would be permitted at any gate.  A company spokesman said the effect of halting coal supplies at the plant would not be noticed “immediately, but if it is continued w’e’ll feel it.”  Truman Says Ceiling On Meat Should Stay  Expects More, Better Meal  Flood Sweeps San Antonio  IQI Guns To Salute King  But All Defoils of Coming Of George Bock to Greece Kept Secret  Severol Deod, Domoge Into Millions, Rescuers Busy with Stronded Persons  SAN ANTONIO.

W. DAVIS  WASHINGTON, Sept. 27.—(AP)—Chairman Slaughter (D-Mo.) of the house surplus property committee said today the government took a bad beating on sales “because nobody knew what was going on.’*  Slaughter talked with reporters after lite special investigating group received evidence that one of the war assets administration's sales agents ran up expenses—which the government paid—amounting to 32,650 per cent of its sales.  Thin agent's contract has been A cancelled, as have others, but Slaughter contended, “these ca?es should have been caught months before.” They involved electronic items, and the committee chief drew' an acknowledgment fron\ a WAA W'itness that the govern-' menl may net nothing from its electronic goods sales.

George ll.

Moriarty .said he thought it unwise, how'ever, to dump all the items on the market now lest industry be up.set. He proposed carrying on until next June at least.  Varying estimates have been given as to the original cost of all the electronic surpluses — radio, radar, etc. They range from $1,800,000,000 to $3,000,000,000 and the armed services may yet declare additional amounts lo be surplus.   ^ -  Driver's License Lack Is Charged  Three Arrests on Some Accusofion This Week  O.
