FIVE CENTS THE COPK FIVE PEACE TREATY DRAFTS FINISHED W ;v.- t _ '-fliW. W. Hanson After some weeks the members agreed that the city manager place was one calling for some special training and certain ex- perience. So they net about locating a man with both of these in his background. They started learning fast about the city manager field that it is a very narrow and high- ly skilled one nnd that few men are qualified to handle. They tad already found out by careful examination of the city's needs that a man was required w 11 h engineering background, and with experience as a city manager. Mnny technical problems arise constantly in the maintenance in and operation of Ihe writer sys- tem, the disposal plant nntl other city properties and Ada does not have n city engineer. More Than Engineering Then.he would need experience in city managership because he would have to reorganize the city here, know hr-'.v to train and handle personnel. He also should have a thorough knowledge of preparation of bud- gets and handling of finances. And the Ada council found that 49 cities in the U. S. had adopted the council-manager plan this year and more were planning to vote on it, so that 'the already limited supply of men with the qualifications wanted here was in growing demand. Found First Required So the counciltncn set out to find just whiit to rxpocl in a suc- c-cxsful city iminiigoi1. V. L, Snulhnm, president of the Inter- national City Managers Associa- tion and city manager nl Dallas, Tex., came to Ada in August for a conference, visited the city plants, discussed Ada's problems and gave so much information Unit Ihc councilman foci deeply indebted to him for his advice Jinri interest. Then the association ran an mi- nounceim-nt in its mitionnl bi- weekly bulletin that Ada hud changed to the council-manager plan and would select H manager, In came a number of applica- tions, from all over the U. S. At their own time and expense the council made a personal investi- gation of every outstanding city manager in the state of Okla- homa nnd found no one who would fit the job who wag nvail- ublp. Several met the standards sought but were unwilling to change. What to do then? To check with dozens of stfi- plicants. and in this the council was thorough and careful. Sach applicant submitted a de- tailed application setting forth all pertinent information about Jiim- iself nnd his qualifications. The council checked the references and did some investigating of their own. Personal Interviews If the applicant appeared to be a likely prospect, he was invited for an interview. The council had a number of these. H had decided early against any favorable dcci- World Series Opens Today Cardinals Hook Up ot f. M. with Highly Favored Boston Rod Sox By GAYLE TALBOT ST. LOUIS, Oct. S, Louis' own Cardinals, who sur- vived a rough trip to the finals and the highly-favored- Boston Red Sox held their last akul'- sossions and workouts at Sports- man's park preparatory to hook- ing up nt (CST) Sunday af- ternoon In the opening game of the 1940 World Series. A sell-out crowd of about 000 was assured for both of the games which will be played here before the two clubs move up to Boston to continue the struggle. Texan Texan? Prospects were that a couple of Texas residents, left-handed Howie Pollet of Houston and "Tex" Hughson, a long right- hander from Kyle, would be nominated as the starting pitch- ers in the opener. Pollet, who turned in 21 vic- tories for the Cards during the season, including a vital 4-2 tri- umph over the Dodgers in the first play-off game, was certain to go for Freshman Manager Eddie Dyer if the strained shoulder muscle which has hampered him recently is not too painful when he warms up tomorrow. The slim portsider took heat treatments today and indicated he would be ready. Although Manager Joe Cronin of the Sox had not stated a de- finite choice among his "big- -Hughson. Dave "Boo" and Mickey Cards felt il was a foregone con- clusion they would have to look at Hughson. The big fast-bailer won 20 this year, ripping .off eight of his last nine starts. Brecheea Second Choice Should Pollet decline the al- ignment, .pyer said 'his second choice "another lefty, Harry Brecheen. Then, if Bre- cheen feels he could use more rest after -his furious nin- th-inning relief stint against Brooklyn two days ago, Dyer's reluctant third choice would be George Munger, right-hander who only recently got out of thn service. No matter what Rodbird fling- ct finally gets the call, the Sox will firm favorites to capture tho series. The fence- busters who carried them to a runaway victory in tho Ameri- can league1 arc figured to gcner- nle too much power for the Cards, who wound up the season with only Iwo .300 hitlers. Red Sox Calralr Confident The Boston slrong boys bore a confident air when they arrived on their special train late yes- terday. One after another they said calmly: "Sure, we expect to three' Ferris Navy Band Here Today Famed Musical Organisa- tion's Concert Sponsored By last Central The United States Navy Band that .plays in concert here this afternoon has more than a cen- tury of history and tradition batk of it.
