He railed the ail port and told them to warm his plane up Like a streak of lightening he was out there and on his way to Denison.  His greeting was, “Come on. boy. von are going to have an emergency appendectomy.*’ With t*.at. the doctor, patient and suit were quickly packed into the I ane and on their way back to Ada  In a matter of a few minutes, Herb was on the operating table, sans hrs “tricky appendix”.

Arrived Sunday Hansen, his wife and two year old baby, arrived in Ada Sunday and will make their home at the Aldridge hotel until he finds a place to rent. Later he expects to purchase a home.  He hag already started checking on the possibilities of putting the signal lights working and left the impression that he would have them working within a short time. At the present time, he doesn t know just what method he will use in putting the lights into working order.  Will Standardize Meters  It is the plan of the new city manager to standardize all witter meters used in Ada, which will in turn save the city money by not having to carry parts for vaned makes of water meters.  Many technical problems arise constantly in the maintenance in operations of the water system, the disposal plant and other city properties and Ada does not have a city engineer, but Hansen’s record indicates he is capable of handling this right along with his other duties.  On a form presented to the assistant city clerk Monday morning, an excellent efficiency rating was shown. Tile form was prepared by the army.  Preventive maintenance is one of the things that Manager Hansen believes in most in the operation of a city and he says that he is going to practice it in Ada, no matter what the previous policy has been.  The new manager W'as not at all pleased with the things he found during an inspection of city property and made plans immediately to change them.  Already Making Plans.  He has a number of things that he is already working on and expects to see some results in the near future because he know's exactly how ho intends to handle them. Not once did he criticize the way the city has been operated but he did say that there WHI he some changes made.  Manager Hansen met and talked with heads of the various de-partments of city government and requested that they lake time out from their regular routine work and prepare a list of equipment and other items needed now by the city.  Ile told the department heads to disregard cost in preparing tin* list because he wants to know exactly what is needed so that he can start making plans to obtain that particular equipment,  As to the cars, trucks, pickups and other rolling equipment owned by the city, he said that he would rather they be painted the same color so that he and citizens, could tell city equipment when they see it.  He did not say that the equipment would bf* painted any particular color, but he added that he likes white’ because it looks clean.  Bv noon Monday. Hansen had spent about three hours looking over city property and employees, had already formed a few opinions in that short time. Within several days, he will have definite plans.

Cold Wave Whiffs Direction, Warmer Weather Due Here  By Th* AiioiUtcd Brest  Balmy weather was predicted for Oklahoma today and tomorrow by federal forecaster, who said at the same time that the crest of a flood rolling slowly down the North Canadian would reach Oklahoma City tonight or tomorrow.  Delay in the arrival of the flood crest at Oklahoma City, where it w’as feared lowlands would be inundated, has helped reduce its volume and the river probably will not go mon* than one foot over flood stage when it arrives, the forecaster declared.  The river stood at 14)7 feet early today at Kl Reno, a rise of three quarters of a foot overnight and at 5.8 at Oklahoma City, a rise of one half foot in the same period.  At Canton, the forecaster reported, the crest of the flood had passed today and the river had dropped to 7.9 feet, a fall of five feet since Saturday.  A cold wave reported last night to be headed toward Oklahoma was derailed when Hie wind shifted from the north to the south and residents can expect warm weather today and tomorrow', the. forecast said.  The official prediction:  “Fair and warmer today and tomorrow. Low temperatures from lower to middle 50 s tonight. Increasing cloudiness and continued mild Tuesday.”  Lowest temperature reported in Oklahoma overnight was 35 at Idaho), in the southeastern section of the state, The high yesterday was 76 at Waurika.  Bring Out Bodies From West China  All Killed in Plane Crash; Tales of Gun Boule With Lolos Proved ^Untrue  By JOHN RODERICK  SICH ANG, Oct. 14, kl 8 ) A mournful procession of sedan chairs .bearing the white sheeted corpses of all 31 persons w f ho died in the crash of a Chinese National Aviation Corporation transport plane Get. 8 made its way down steep Loch! mountain to the Village of Hsichia today.  Rumors which emanated from this west China territory occupied by bara rout I ado tribesmen had given vivid descriptions of “survivors” fighting a gun battle with Lolos before being captured.  The fact that all aboard evidently died outright when the craft smashed into Hie side of the 14.000-foot mountain pointed up the unreliability of stories spread in this fantastic country.  It was another indication that reports of the capture and enslavement two'years ago of five or so American H-29 pilots might also be a figment of Lolo imagination.  A search party, nevertheless, is searching Lololand for a trace of a B 29 and its occupants who ciasia I in 1944, and is expected back in a day or two.  NORMAN.

French Vole New (onslHullen With legislature en Top  By ROBERT C. WILSON  PARIS, Oct. 14. (ZP) - A constitution for France's fourth republic, providing for a powerful legislature overshadowing the president, bore the stamp of public approval today, given in the face of Gen. Charles De Gaulle’s opposition.  The people of continental F ranee accepted the .new constitution yesterday by a margin of some 1.212.000 votes -and a percentage of 53.6 in favor to 46.4 opposed. Voting was light, with 31.9 per cent of the registered voters staying away from the polls.  Gen. De Gaul Ie, wartime leader of the fighting French, had contended that the charter was inadequate because under it the executive would be too weak. He warned that the constitution would endanger France’s future and urged its rejection.  But the result of the referendum. far from being regarded us a defeat for the general, was taken rather as strong testimony to Ins continuing prestige. Almost single handedly he nearly defeated the constitution despite the* fact thatNjt was backed by France's three major parties.  Official interior ministry returns for continental France showed 9,002,467 votes for the constitution to 7,790.676 against it.  Unofficial returns from three North African departments showed that that part of the empire  .„I c J ectec *  t * ,t ‘ constitution, 259,156 to 145,563—making the unofficial totals for the 93 departments of France and North Africa 9.148,032 “Yes” and 8,049,832 “no.”  , Still missing w’ere reports from ( orsica. Martinque, Madagascar, tin* South Pacific. Indo-China and other oversea territories, but they could not change the overall result.  The constitution will not take effect until early December, when parliament is scheduled to be seated.    ^  One chamber, the National Assembly of Deputies, will be elected Nov. IO. The second, the Council of the Republic, is to be chosen by a complicated electoral college system. The charter will be effective from the duy that two-thirds of the council’s members ure seated.  An analysis of the referendum left no doubt in the minds of most observers of the scope of De Gaulle s “moral victory” over President Georges Bidault in a tug-of-war for leadership of the Pillar Republican movement (MRP),  Nation Wails For Truman Word on Meal  Decision Due for Announcement Tonight On Stabilisation, Meat Problem  By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH  WASHINGTON. Oct. 14,    _  Housewives (hurrying for meat and politicians for votes cocked an ear to the White House for President Truman’s decision tonight on what to do about getting steaks and roasts back.  Hours before the chief executive’s all-network broadcast set for IO p. rn., eastern standard time, the republican party termed the scheduled address “political” and demanded radio time to reply.  Issue Is Clear  While there was no clear-cut indication what Mr. Truman plans to say in his 15-minute discussion of stabilization and the meat problem, the issue before him boiled down to this: Whether to scrap meat controls outright, as many republicans and some democratic leaders have demanded, or keep them unchanged.  Or, whether to compromise on some relaxation of controls involving perhaps, higher ceilings, a bonus plan to induce marketing of livestock, and possibly importation of meat.  Mr. Truman is on record as firmly opposed to removal of OPA controls.  One indication that he may have changed his mind came from a high official who is familiar with the problem. He hinted to a reporter that top aides helping prepare Mr. Truman’s speech met at the White House last night and that decontrol of meat is in the picture.  Wage Controls, Too There has been speculation, moreover, t h a t Mr. Truman might deal with wage controls, too, and possibly scrap that program.  On the other hand, among  those playing an active part in drafting the president’s statement are OPA Administrator Paul Porter and Reconversion Director John R. Stedman.  Porter has openly opposed removal of meat controls. Stedman, on the subject of controls generally, recently said that to “let prices go” would be the “worst possible” course.  The GGP contention that Mr. Truuman’s address “will be political” came from Carroll Reece, chairman of the republican national committee.  . Politics, Cries GOF “Just three weeks before a crucial congressional election.” Reece said in a statement, “Mr. Truman has chosen to tie up most of the nation's radio facilities with an explanation of his administration’s so-called stabilization program, with particular reference to the stabilized shortage of meat. Whatever may be the form of his explanation, its substance and its obvious poiiti cal purpose will be political.  ‘if Mr. Truman has in mind some action to solve the meat problem and it is to be hoped that he has—he can take that action at his desk in the White House, where it could have been taken many weeks ago. xxxx” Meanwhile, Rep. Jenkins of Ohio, chairman of the republican congressional food study committee, called for “immediate and permanent elimination of all OPA controls and price regulations over the livestock and meat industry.”  The committee reported that at hearings it recently conduct-*' (l  .  jl L Sioux City. Kansas City and Tulsa, witnesses were “unanimous in declaring” that another temporary decontrol period “would bi* the most tragic and disastrous thing that could happen to meat production.”  Paris Peace Conference Ends Work on Five Treaties, Now  Foreign Ministers Take Over  U.

Riddle, international representative of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters arid Butcher Workmen Of North America (AFL) said this was the result:  16.791 urged discontinuance of OPA controls except on rents; 29 asked that they remain in force, He said the petitions would be sent to President Truman. Cities represented were Joplin, Carthage, Webb City and Neosho in Missouri; Pittsburgh, Iola, Chanute. Cherryvale and Coffeyville in Kansas and Miami and Pitcher in Oklahoma.  Sapulpa Will Honor Co-Pilof  Canada Offers Plan For Complete Checkup From Mines to A-Bomb Completion  By LARRY HAI C K  LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y , Oct. 14 (ZP)—The problem of how to prevent clandestine operations in atomic energy occupied the attention of the political committee of the United Nations Atomic Energy commission today as delegates were sailed into session to begin a detailer) study of safeguards necessary to restrict use of atomic power to peaceful purposes.  The agenda for the 3:30 p m. (EST) meeting contained a Canadian resolution, previously unanimously adopted, providing for a thorough examination of  three possible kinds of misuse___  Clandestine operations, diversion of materials and .seizure of materials or facilities.  3 he Canadian plan recommended a complete checkup at every stage of production from the mines up.  The United States delegation was expected to submit another memorandum this one amplifying the question of controls and stressing th** necessity for a strict system.  Meanwhile, the Security Council will go back into public .session tomorrow for the first tune in three weeks to debate eligibility for the international* court of justice.  Arguments hinge around Rus-simi Polish opposition to ullnw'uig Franco Spain, which from U. N. menibt having access to the agency court.

In the last hours of Hie peace conference Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov protested that many of its acts had been unsatisfactory and would have to be gone over by the foreign ministers. One of the conference’s last actions was to vote down an American app4*al to reduce Finland's reparations by one-third. Russia protested that and said the United States had dominated the 11-week conference.

The draft treaties then ifhist be approved finally bv' the foreign ministers of the United States, Russia, Great Britain and France at meetings in New York.  Sen. Arthur Vandenberg spoke before Molotov and demanded that the Finnish reparation bill lie pared from $300,000,000 to $200,000.000—a move that kindhti Molotov’s anger. The Michigan Senator said:  “The United States wvll leave its motives to the verdict of history in connection with the win mng of the war and the writing of a just peace. We decline to plead as defendants among allies to whom we have given every ounce of cooperation in blood and treasure of which a great nation is capable. But wa* shall continue to speak for the American conception of justice and fair play.” itevin Backs Russian Claim Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin of Great Britain upheld the Russian claim to $300,000,000 from Finland.  Molotov said Vandcnberg’s address “made an unfavorable impression both as to his consistency and his frank ne HS. ” ii e asserted that Russia had avoided putting ' pressure” on Finland for two years but that the western allies bad not done likewise.  “We draw the attention of Finland to the differ ence between a true and a .scheming friendship,” lie said.  Lashes Vets Power Criticism Molotov spoke violently against criticism of the veto power of the five leading allied nations in the United Nations Security Council, saying:  “The right of veto is not involved, but a question of whether they desire unanimity and cooperation among the great countries.”  Molotov’s speech contrasted with an address earlier by Bevin, who said the peace conference] given the job of going over tin* drafts submitted by the Foreign Ministers’ Council, “has accomplished this task and accomplished it well.”  Accuse United .States  Molotov, in accusing the United States of “dominating” a group of lesser powers to achieve its own ends, said:  In all votes in the conference it was enough for the Americans delegate to vote and another • a 13 votes were assured,  He asserted that the Amene sought definite decision regard less of whether they were correct as long as they pleased this group.” He said one decision had repudiated” the decision of the Foreign Ministers Council der to establish a simple rule in the conference.
