Roberts To Codify Ordinances  Has Engineering, City Managership In His Background  Comes ffrdbi Monterrey, Calif., Has Unusually Varied Experience, Training  Ada city council, by unanimous vote. Monday night at a called meeting, voted to employ William E. Hansen, Monterrey, Calif, as city manager, succeeding Luke B. Dodds, who has been acting manager since the council-man-ager system of city government was established here in July of this year.  v Mr. Hansen was present and accepted the action of the council, announcing that he will be in Ada with his family on Oct. 13.  He is scheduled to take over the managership on or about October 15 and Mr. Dodds will continue until that time.  Dodds Work Appreciated *  The council members also expressed appreciation for the work of Mr. Dodds, a local business man for his untiring work and cooperation as a civil employe of the city and directed that a resolution be drafted expressing officially that appreciation.  They also mentioned the objective analysis of Ada’s situation that led to selection of Hansen out of a number of men interviewed for the managership, believing that a man with engineering background and experience as a city manager would prove most efficient here.  The council checked on records of men in all parts of the United States and over Oklahoma, concluding finally that Mr. Hansen most closely meets the background and experience requirements of Ada for years ahead.

He is married, and has one daughter. He is 44 years of age.  Mr. Hansen is a graduate from the United States School of Technology with a degree in engined -mg. Additional educational courses were taken at the University of California, one in electrical engineering and one in geology.  His experiences have been varied and are admirably adapted to the work of a city manager. From 1924 to 1928 he was construction engineer and office manager for the California Pottery company. His duties consisted of building oil-fired kilns for the manufacture of ceramic products, plant production, purchasing, personnel, checking and supervision of the installation of large sewer systems, boiler settings and roof structures to be covered with tile.  Road Work Experience From 1928 to 1931 he was employed by the Union Oil company of California where he had many and varied duties. In connection with those duties he worked very close to and consulted W'ith city, county and state officials on road and highway paving work and worked with contractors engaged in paving and using large quantities of asphalt and road oils.  From 1931 to 1934 he worked as construction and maintenance engineer for the Mapaso Gold-fields Mining company, located in PI a c i e r. Mindanao, Philippine Islands. The work consisted of first clearing the jungle and then building necessary roads and following up with the construction of required buildings, such as mill, power house, shops, living quarters, and the installation of water and sewer systems.  Back To Philippines In 1935 He returned to the United States in 1934 and received a temporary appointment from the Civil Service Examination Board of the Cit^j of San Francisco, California, as an associate engineer. In 1935 he returned to the Philippine Islands under contract to Atkins Kroll and Company as their consulting engineer, where his work principally consisted of laying out and constructing tw ? o sugar cane mills, one 6.000 gallon distillery, one small glass plant, two sewer systems, one small hydro-electric power project on the I po River, one 5/8 mile loading dock in the China Sea, and numerous smaller projects. This work required travel to China, Japan, Celebes, Java and India.  Upon his return to the United States in 1938 he was employed by McMillan Petroleum company as lubricating engineer and then promoted to assistant sales manager for the midcontinent section of the United States.  Drafted By Engineers in 1940 In 1940 he was drafted by the United States War Department Corps of Engineers in a civilian status as principal engineer for the construction and maintenance of Fort Ord, the second  Thota Interested Reminded Full Benefits of GI Bill Available Until Oct. 5  Seven more men enlisted in the Regular Army here Monday, according to T/Sgt.

New Maritime Strike Paralyzes Ocean Ships as Government  Effort to Head It Off Fails  \ ^  By MAX HALL  WASHINGTON, Oct. I.—(AP)—A new maritime strike paralyzed ocean shipping today as the government gave up at 4 a. rn. (EST) its final frantic efforts to produce an agreement before daybreak.   A  The labor department scheduled new talks for this afternoon, but already crews were quitting their ships.  Hope of averting the second port tieup in less than a month crumbled last night when Pacific shipowners rejected the demands of two unions of merchant marine officers for a more favorable hiring system.  Even after that, federal conciliations kept union leaders and east coast shipowners in session four houri past the midnight strike deadline, seeking a separate eastern agreement.  Navy Bomber Sols New World Flight Of 11,217 Miles  COLUMBUS, Ohio. Oct. I (J?)— The Truculent Turtle, Navy patrol bomber, landed at Port Columbus at 12:28 p.m. (EST) today, completing a record-breaking non-stop flight of 11,237 miles from Perth, Australia. The unofficial elapsed time was 55 hours and 18 minutes.  The twin-engined Lockheed Neptune P2V, carrying a crew of four men and a baby kangaroo, thereby exceeded by 3,321 miles the non-stop mark of 7,916 miles set last November by the army’s B29 “Dream Boat.”  Infantry Company Inspection Is Sol  Co.

Quit on Both Coasts  The two unions are the CIO Marine Engineers and the AFL Masters, Mates Sc Pilots. Their wage-hour contracts ran out as midnight fell in each time zone. They quit their ships, or prepared to quit, on all coasts.  And in the west, the CIO long shoremen, whose contract also expired at midnight, planned to hold mass meetings instead of reporting for work.  While both west and east coast operators were invited to today’s conciliation sessions, the government appeared to be Dinning its main hopes on an Atlantic settlement that would nip the walkout there in its early stages and confine the tieup to the Pacific.  Here is how the west coast deadlocked during the day and night talks yesterday:  Shipowners Say ‘No*  Representatives of the Pacific- a  A mer lean Shipowners Association repeatedly said “no” to demands of the two unions -for a form of "union security” similar to that already found in the east.  Marion plant, attorney, and Wallace Brown, secretary of the association, held to their stand throughout a 90-minute session with the maritime commission and Secretary of Labor Schwel lenbach.  Finally at 1:30 a. rn.. Plant and Brown went to their hotels and to bed, leaving the east coast operators still talking.  Plant told reporters he and Brown hadn’t even thought about the next move. Said he. “I assume the strike’s on, and I assume any further negotiations will be back home where they should have been in the first place.”  College Vets Name Officers for Club  Bob Boll President, Hook  Eales and Dorothy Olton Other Officers  The Veterans Club of East Central met Monday evening in the East Central auditorium to elect officers and attend to other business necessary for a newly organized club.  Bob Ball was elected president. Hook Eales received the most votes for vice-president and Dorothy Olson was elected sec-retary-treasurer.  More than IOO veterans were on hand to hear Veteran Administration representatives talk at the meeting. Gene Ford, contact representative of the VA with offices in Ada, was the principal speaker.  Music was furnished by a trio of East Central singers.  The next regular meeting of the club is scheduled for Monday night, Oct. 14.     --  The word “Commando” is of Portuguese origin, though first generallv used by the Dutch-descended Boers.  Death On Gallows Is Fate For 12, Seven To Prison, 3 Cleared  Meat Remains on Scarce Items Russia Dissents On List, Blow to Stock Industry I Acquittal of Trio Hopes for End of OPA Control Of Nazi Leaders  WASHINGTON, Ort. I (ZP)— The worsening meat shortage brought an official threat today of government seizure of all market-bound livestock.  That unprecedented step was described by secertary of agriculture Clinton P. Anderson as “a very real danger that day by day becomes more of a possibility.” Anderson’s assertion to a group of New Mexico cattlemen coincided with his formal announcement through trie agriculture department here that meat must remain on the government’s list of scarce farm products.  Canned Fruits Off List At the same time Anderson erased from the list—and from price control—all canned fruits, juices, nectars and corn, along with fresh and frozen salmon, oat cereals and rum.  What lingering hopes the meat industry might still have had that the way might be cleared for lifting OPA ceilings in a bid to farmers to speed their stock to market apparently were dashed by the announcement here.  And Anderson made the point more emphatic in his Albuquerque address yesterday by declaring that any new decontrol period  would simply lead to “feast and then famine.”  Pleading for “cooperation in trying to bring meat back to the American people at legitimate prices.” The secretary asked the executive board of the New Mexico Cattle Growers association “What do you have to suggest?” It was not immediately clear here whether the requisitioning step Anderson mentioned as “a very real danger” would be designed to channel more meat into regular channels or merely to assure the armed services and hospitals of a greater supply.  The army currently is laying claim to 12,000,000 pounds a week by means o f priority-orders served on federally inspected packers, but many slaughterers do not come under that category.  Warning to Stockmen Anderson held out still another warning to the stockmen—that the long-standing fight against importing Argentine beef into this country might be reopened by public demand.

O. Campbell, who investigated the accident.  The accident involved a ear driven by Walter T. Green of Tupelo arid trucks driven by Roy Nelson of Ada. Gordon W. Askew' of Hugo, Norbert Smith of Konawa and Marvin A. Bryant of Seminole.  Nelson was traveling south on Highway No. 99 when he stopped on the roadway waiting for traffic to clear in order to make a left turn.  Green stopped behind Nelson waiting for him to make his turn.  Askew, also traveling south in a truck loaded with four yards of dirt and gravel, noticed the cars stopped in front of him. He applied his brakes, swerving his truck to the left, striking the front of a truck traveling north driven by Smith.  The Askew truck continued south, where it struck another truck driven by Bryant. The As-kew truck was out of control by this time and swung back to the right, hitting the Green car from behind and knocking it into the rear of the Nelson truck.  Patrolman Campbell said that one of the passengers of the automobile received minor injuries.  It ' as estimated that damage was done as follows: Askew', $1,200: Smith. $300; Green, $300; Bryant, $23.50, and $1.50 to the Nelson truck.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
