AvtriM Net Auiuil Circulation 8462 Mtmfctr: Audit Bureau of Circulation THE ADA EVENING NEWS FINAL EDITION 143 ADA, OKLAHOMA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1946 In-Training Vels Lining Up Classwork About 300 Yet to Enroll; Related Classes Required New for 100 Hours Work With 100 men already in and about 300 more to go. "the in- training veterans related class- work program for Ada began rolling Tuesday night, and will continue to move for a year. It's a 'must' this year for the vets who are working and learn- ing their trades or professions. Last year it was voluntary. It is so necessary ndw that a veteran must take the related classwork or have his subsistence checks stooped. Next Meeting Thursday At the Tuesday night meeting classes were organized in typing and bookkeeping, according to J. B. Waiters, head of the class- work program. All in-training veterans who have not yet reported are urged to be at Ada High school Thurs- day night at o'clock. At that time there will probably be classes formed for drafting and elementary electricity. Those who enrolled Tuesday night will on Thursday night start their courses. Next week typing and book- keeping classes will start meet- on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights. Three Classes Every Night In order for all of the almost 400 veterans taking on in-train- ing jobs here .to get in their 100 hours of classwork, there will have to be at least three 25-pup- il classes going every night throughout the year. Watlers said Wednesday morning. For that reason, he and others supervising the program are an- xious to get all of the veterans involved organized into classes and the classes functioning as early as possible.

Other'strikers and officer rush to tlic scene as the deputy starts to put his club into ment. The commission had not yet made a public announcement of its attitude. But AFL and CIO union leaders said a typewritten statement the commission's policy was circuited at a nego- tiating session late last night. Government officials who asked not to be identified said the same thing. The union men told reporters that the commission gave assur- ance it would enforce on all gov- ernment-owned vessels any changes in working conditions agreed upon by cast coast ship- owners and the two unions which represent captains, mates and en- gine-room officers. The main stumbling block in the dispute has been the refusal of Pacific Coast shipowners to go as far as the eastern companies in meeting demands for more ion security." Edgar L. Warren, the labor de- partment's conciliation director is presiding at the negotia- tions here, would not comment on the Maritime commission's re- ported intervention, except to say he was "very hopeful" an agree- ment on all points could be reach- ed soon. More negotiations were set for today at the labor department, be- tween the Shipowners and the CIO Marine Engineers and the AFL Masters, Mates and Pilots the two seafaring unions involved in the nationwide walkout which began yesterday. CIO longshore-men, striking on the the west coast, were reported .to be near agreement with their employers at San Francisco. Parties to the Washington pro- ceeding believe that if the ship officers' walkout can be settled, the longshoremen also will end their strike and the maritime in- dustry may live, in peace until next summer, Blue Cross Report Shows Funds Taken Here Spent Here Many people who have taken out a part in the Blue Cross hos- pitalization plan include the inod- cost ;n thoir budgets and think little about it.

Will Ask Shooting And Not Hanging If Nazis Executed Appeals by Pretented Soon for Gal- lawi Date It Oct. 10 By THOMAS A. REKDY NUERNBERG, Germany, Oct. for the 11 con- demned German war disclosed today they planned to appeal to the Allied control coun- cil to change the death sentences from hanging to shooting if ill other picas for clemency failed. The last court of resort for Hermann Goering, Joachim Von Ribbcnlrop and the others from the ignominy of the hangman's rope was formed of the four Al- lied generals sitting in Berlin as occupation authorities for the four zones of Germany. A twelfth German, Martin Bormann, was sentenced in absentia to be hanged. As attorneys drew their peti- tions, the four power representing the Allied council held nn all day session on ar- rangements and details for -the executions Oct. 16 in Nuernberg, once the festival city of the Nazi party. They talked also of trans- porting of the war crim- inals to Berlin to start their pris- on terms. A redoubled force of American soldier gum-da surrounded the an- cient courthouse nnd jail where tho convicted men were held, and they had orders to shoot or kill on provocation. Three Out Of Jail Now All three men acquitted 'in the history -making international trial, which established planning aggressive war as a supreme crime, remained in jail overnight. They had no other place to go immediately. Hjalmar Schacht, the truculent former finance min- ister, planned- to remain in jail at least another night, saying he had, no money, ration card nor homo. Franz Von asked for visa to the French zone, in which lie has two castles near the Rhine. Hans Fritsche may have to re- Lurn to the Russian zone, whence he came for trial as a prisoner of war. German lawyers for Field Mar- shal Wilhelm Keitel and Col. Gen. Alfred Jodl, both relegated to the gallows, led the legal staff in making appeals for clemency, and for shooting rather than the if mercy is denied.
