Secretary Ernest.Bevin of Great Britain told the peace conference today "unity, was the foundation of our victory and must be the foundation of our peace. Freign Minister V. M. Molotov of Russia presided at the plenary session. Organizing More Searches lor Men, Wrecks in Lololand SICHANd, China, Oct. 8 Li. Col. Herbert W.. Wurlzler with a missiontiry and two assist- ants, began today a four-clay trek to inspect the wreckage of u long- lost B-29 from which three bodies have been recovered, and In which they hope to find clues to possible survivors. Five Americans have reportedly been captives of Lolo tr.ibcsmen :n this sector of wild west China since their big bomber crashed on war-time ferry, trips from In- dia. Colonel Wurtzler will seek to determine whether there were more men aboard the wrecked plane than the three whose bodies were found. The wreckage was discovered some 75 airline miles southwest of Sichang. Gen. Ho Kow-Kwang, Chinese Army commandant mean- while sent a runner to the dis- tant Lolo village of Mouli in the same general area near Yenyuan, to check unconfirmed reports there were American captives there. He said he was "ninety per cent however, that no American planes crashed there during the war. It will lake n month for his runner to investigate and return to Sichiing, tho general said.. General Ho also is seeking sur- vivors of reported Sept. 30 Chinese airliner crash. The plane's American pilot 31 passengers were last reported in the somewhat precarious protec- tion of a Lolo family, and the general dispatched an Hide and a Lolo guide in an effort to locale them. He first had organized a search party of 17, but hostile natives barred all but two. Oil Industry Fell Changeover Slightly Civilien Demand Picked as War Eased WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, The oil industry has scarcely felt the change from war to peace, so quickly did civilian consumption pick uo war curtailments, the natural resources department of the U. S. Chamber of Commerce says. Production, it estimated in recent report, will far outstrip in 1946 that of 1941 OCiO barrels compared with in 1041, Coal production was running about tons a week a- hrad of that in 1945, the cham- ber said, but it was expected to fan short of last year's 000 tons by between However, the Chamber estimated, it will ex- ceed the 1941 000 tons. output of "Iron ore presents the saddest picture .with an estimated 194( production of scarcely half that of 1941." the Chamber said. "The upon strike. Pro- duction. February to May inclu- sive, was only a third 'of the 194S croduction during the same period." Northwest Area Is Now Drying Out By The Associated Northwest Oklahoma was dry- ing out Tuesday after heavy rains which perhaps brought more benefit in needed moisture than the damage the high waters caused. The highway patrol reported all roads open and water out of thp Panhandle towns of Forgan and Turpin. Rain apparently has ended in most northwest counties but cloudiness continues. There was some rain in the last 24 hours in the southwestern and western areas but it was light WEATHER OKLAHOMA: Fair northwest half, cloudy with scattered light showers southeast .half tonight; Wednesday fair; little change in temperatures except cooler in northeast tonight. Bevin's address'followed a .de- claration- by Paul-Henri Spaak. Belgian foreign minister and president'of the United Nations General Assembly, that the peace treaty drafted for Italy was too horsh in its present form. Calling Trieste one of the prime disputes, Bevin snid "I confess there have been times when I had doubts" as to the settlement ot drawing a border between Italy find Yugoslavia. SUv Charges Baseless Bevin declared unfounded.Slav chnrgca that Great Britain and the United States were trying to build n "military base in Europe" by making Trieste an internation- al settlement rather than giving it 1o Yugoslavia outright. "We have no strategic interests in Trieste" at all, Bevin said. "I hope these unfounded allegations will never be repeated." "We are firmly resolved that our victoriesj at El Alemeiri shall not have been in Bevin said. He said Great Britain favored stripping Italy.of her-colonies and asked the conference what, dele- gates thought would have' been the reply if Germany .and Italy were the victors and; Great Brit- ain was asking the Axis for the return of lost territory. "Italy Attacked Us" 'It wasn't Great Britain that attacked Italy, but Italy attacked Bevin said. He said there was a long time when "the bas- tion" of.the Middle East was de- fended by only the British Com- monwealth and, "I am proud to say, Greece." Speaking for the 25 minutes, Bevin praised the conference for its nine and one half weeks work, declaring the "foreign ministers and world" would be in .'posses- sion of the facts when the final texts were written. Draft peace treaty, texts being prepared here for Italy, Finland, Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania must be approved in final form by the Foreign Ministers Council, probably next month in New York.

However, the show can possibly be seen from 8 a. m. Wednesday to 10 a, m. Thursday. It has been explained that the spectacle may start being visible to the human eye Tuesday night and if everything is favorable there may be some sort of a sight to see Thursday night.

Radio listeners can turn their radios to KADA Wednesday evening and learn what to. ex- pect in addition to other interes- ting facts about the unusual sit- uation.

Bill Hoover, program director tor KADA, says that the talk by Hatchett has been so arranged .hat Dooolc can listen to the brondcnsl, then go outdoors and see what they have been told. Jaycees to Hear Institute Report Ada Jnycees will meet Wednes- day night al 8 o'clock at Conven- program will be the Dutchman Visits Adans He Knew In Sumatra Years Ago Reunited after a number of years, 'Mr. and Mrs: Thurman Milam, 830 East Twelfth street, Olie Henskens. Palembang, Sumatra, Dutch East Indies, had much. to talk about when he spent the past weekend as their guest. Mr. 'Henskens, a Dutchman, was held-in a concentration camp four years after the Japs took Sumatra. He explained that his treatment was not too Harsh and the only ill effect of his imprison- ment was in his vision. Prior to the war, his eyesight was so gooc that he didn't wear glasses. Now he has. to wear extra thick lenses for reading and glasses at al times. Poor diet and the fact thai he cooked over charcoal fires is the reason for this condition, he says. After his release from the con- centration tamp, he took his 'wife and family to Holland and has remained there until he came to this country. An employe of the N. K. P. M. (Standard Oil of New Jersey) Oil Company, he has been sent to the states for course. Mr. Henskens, who is temporarily lo- cated in Tulsa, plans to return to Sumatra as soon as his course is finished. Mr. Milam was an em- ploye of that same company when they resided in the Dutch East Indies.

D., Oct. 8, .women were killed last night during a storm which blanketed northern and western North Dakota with from four to seven inches of snow to disrupt highway travel and force grounding of commercial airlin- ers.

Ada Want Ads. Slale Has More Than 2rOOOrOOO Beef Cattle Now ..OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 8, than beef cattle are roaming? the ranges of held by stockmen be- cause of low ceiling prices; Joe C. Scott, president of the Oklahoma board of agriculture, estimated today. Scott said the number of cattle now on the hoof in the state is higher than: in any pre-war year. Most of the cattle are grass-fed, and usually are sold' to 'northern feeders for fattening. Hence, those ready for selling to feeders probably could be readied for. slaughter in about four months, Scott said. There is little .likelihood that many of the cattle will be sold 'under prevailing ceiling prices, since stockmen prefer to hold the animals rather than sell them at a loss, Scott pointed.out. With winter pasture prospects encour- aging, it is likely that the bulk of the cattle will be carried over until next year' if price restric- tions continue. Scott recently asked- Secretary of Agriculture Clinton Anderson to aid in abolishing thfc meat price ceilings, declaring that if restrictions were lifted there would soon be plenty of cattle on the market and the large supply would soon bring a natural aof- justment of prices. first time are swimming pools, boardwalks, amusement park roller coasters; concrete surfaces for parking lots. tennis. courts and drive-in and walls or fences built of wood, brick, concrete or concrete blocks.

To Reject Petition. Said Supply Scarce WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 (IP} The fight for decontrol of beef headed for a showdown today when the Beef Advisory Commit- tee formally authorized filing of a petition to remove price ceilings from csittlc, beef and veal. The committee voted 11 to 1 to petition for docontrol, and author- ized Robert G. Thomas, executive vice president of -the Lima Pack- ing Company. Limn, Ohio, Roscoe G. Hiiynie, committee chairman and vice president of Wilson Company, Chicago, to sign the appeal. Hnynic told reporters that the petition will, be based on a con- tention that, under terms of the Price Control Act, beef is eligible for decontrol. One eligibility re- quirement is that beef cattle be in ample supply. Haynie declined to jiame the committee member who refused to vote for a decontrol petition. However, he said the member felt that this is not the proper for the action. OPA Works On New An OPA official told reporters the agency now is working on new regulations which he said deal with distribution of meat supplies and increases in on some meats. Secretary of Agriculture Clin- ton P. Anderson has virtually committed himself to rejecting the petition. The next step would be an appeal to the in. dependent decontrol board. Aides of Anderson reported meanwhile tfcat the secretary it awaiting .White House reaction to the proposals- he discussed with President Truman last week for putting meat back on the nation's dinner tables. Not Planning Sefiure These officials declined to dis- cuss the proposals except to state that seizure of livestock on farms is not being consider- ed. Transportation In Crish Elsewhere on the meat and food front there were these oth- er developments: 1. The government said the continuing transportation will interfere with the move- ment of food and other farm products next year. No shortage of livestock cars was predicted. however. 2. Mr. Truman said this coun- try will always be able to feed itself, as well as others. The chief executive made no refer- ence to the current meat situa- tion, however, in his brief talk with state representatives of the agriculture department's produc- tion marketing administration. Lying Propaganda, Is Charge of Tass LONDON, Oct. 8 The sion news agency, Tass. distribu- ted today, a Lebanese official bul- letin condemning "mendacious propaganda" regarding relations between Russia and the Arab countries of the Middlceast. A Moscow broadcast quoted Tass as saying the bulletin was issued by the Lebanese National -engross in Beirut and chal- enged what the congress termed 'slanderous rumors" disseminted by "foreign newspapers and news agencies." "They try to' make the people jelieve something which actually does not said the bulletin." In reality the policy of the USSR towards the Arab countries has always been friendly.
