   Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1946, Ada, Oklahoma                             It's interesting to note that ten of the T T onetime heads of the supermen's state, once regarding religion as an enemy to their plans, have turned to its peaceful promises in their last hours.

T. Hansen, new city met with the group and discussed several major with them. Tuesday morning he started to work on a number of items including the repairing of the switch board at the city pump station. Hansen says that the switch board needs repair in the worst wav and that work started on the repairing jot early Tuesday Board Only Partially Repaired The switch board was practi- cally destroyed about two years ago and was partially repaired Mjon after it was struck by light- ning. The remainder of the re- pairing could not be done at that particular time because materials v.'crc not available. Necessary materials for the re- pair of the switch board have been in the hands of the city for several months, but the job has not been done. Hansen said that water will probably run low tonight (Tues- day) from 10 to 12 p.m. at which all pumps wiil be stopped and replacement parts installed oi! the board. Ho said that the two hours just before midnight is the siifest time to make repairs because it is at ti.at time that the least water is used. The job is bring done by con- tract because there are no city employees capable of handling the high tension wires that will have to be handled to make the necessary repair. If the job is completed successfully, the switch box should be as good as new. Studying Cemetery, Too Manager llatiscri is personally a study of Kosrdalo ci-me- trry. He is studying particularly the laying out of the unused por- tion and the possibilities of per- petual care. It will probably take 60 days to complete even a preliminary' sur- vey. but when the survey is com- pleted the new city manager will made recommendations to the council. The cemetery program is ex- pected to operate on a long-range basis, but the first plan is to the cause of the ceme- tery from going into the 'red' to the extent 50 per cent of the c.nnual appropriations. Hansen pointed out that the cf-mi-tery should at least pay its way: by making a step in the. diieclion the job can be done eas- ily. but not without, an abundance OMAHA HAS KLENTY OF CATTLE-ON THE HOOF, THAT IS!

There has been information given out concerning the arrange- ment for the hangings, but if they are to be completed within three hours this probably will mean that more than one scaffold and more than one hangman will be employed.

He said the solution should be met by "mutual agreement" and implied that if Yugoslavia's desires were not achieved his country would nyt sign the treaty. Byrnes, taking the floor after the Yugoslav withdrawal was an- nounced, said the United States would support in the four-power foreign ministers council every decision backed by two-thirds of the peace conference.

Arrangements were made so that the added service will con- nect with all points in the city, according to B. D. Dcnton, head of the company.

Only Remedy, Says President, For Nation's Shortage Truman Criticizes Sharply Men in Congress, Industry Who Made Law Unwork- able WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 Government formalities ending price controls on meats wont for- ward swiftly today in the wake of President Truman's decision that decontrol is the "only rem- edy" for the nationwide shortage. First to act were OPA Adminis- trator Paul Porter and Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Ander- son. Porter drafted an order lifting price controls from livestock, meat and other livestock pro- duels. Anderson promptly approved it. A formal proclamation ending the controls was to be issued by Porter later in the day. Slaughter Controls Off Along with the passing of price ceilings on meats, OPA said to- day that slaughter controls also expire immediately. Arval Erickson. director of meat enforcement for the pricing agency, told a reporter that the entire slaughter control program had been ended by President Tru- man. Under this program the govern- ment controlled the number of live animals that could be con- verted into meat by any packer or other slaughterer. The chief executive to the tuna of democrats' nppl.-iust? and criticism, republican taunts and industry signal- led an earlier end to virtually the whole series of wartime re- restrictions, except those over rents. Mr. Truman said the removal of ceilings on items oilier than meat will be speeded up and this will hasten UK; end of wage con- trols. Blames "Selfish Men" Sharply reversing his previous stand, the president told the na- tion the "real blame" for his ac- tion "lies at the door of the reck- less group of selfish men who, in the hope of gaininff political ad- vanlagp, have encouraged sellers to gamblu on the destruction of price control." Speaking in a nation-wide broadcast last night, three weeks before the congressional elections, Mr. Truman said that OPA and the agriculture department would formally scrap the meal price lids today. Their action was all that was required to make the elimi- nation of controls legally effcc- lluwever. no great quantity of nient is expected to begin appear- ing in butcher shops-for perhaps days the time usually re- quired, to get livestock from the In the meat counters.
