Kiwanians Talk On Youth Delinquency  Committee Available For Coll By Authorities To Help On Future Cases  Juvenile delinquent came in for lively discussion at the Ki-wanis meeting today.  Police Chief Quinton Blake said that study and observation had convinced him that there are two basic causes of youth delinquency—conditions at home and lack of something to do.  He urged use of the reform school as a last resort. He also advanced the idea of a boys’ farm for taking care of those whose home conditions are detrimental and who get into serious trouble for lack of anything to do.  Rev. F. R. McConnell and others in general discussion talked over their ideas of causes and solutions and the committee on boys and girls was instructed to De available for call for assistance to the authoring in dealing with specific cases that come up here  The Cat” Is Here  Harry Brecheen To Bo Honored With Special Occasion Tuesday. Presentation Of Boat And Trailer By Adona  Harry ‘ The Cat” Brecheen arrived in Ada Monday morning nursing a cold that he* picked up before returning to Oklahoma where he visited his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Brecheen, in McAlester before coming to Ada.  He was swarmed bv a host of friends, who had words of congratulations to offer to Brecheen, who won three series games for the St. Louis Cardinals against the Boston Red Sox.  Brecheen was in a more talkative mood when he arrived here this time than he has ever been before, but he has more to talk about since he gathered in about all pitching honors for the World Series.  He has only to take his choice of hunting grounds because before noon Monday he had numerous offers.  Set for 4:30 P.M.  A big celebration with music, people and especially the guest, Brecheen, will be on hand for the occasion between Main and Twelfth street on Broadway Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 o’clock.  The Ada High school band, the Contnahoma pep club and other organizations will participate in the celebration for the home-town boy who made good in major league baseball circles.  Early plans included a banquet, but this item was dropped because Brecheen wasn’t strong for the idea. In telephone conversations with several close friends, Brecheen told them to continue with arrangements for the other portions of the affair.  Boat and Trailer  Along with the celebration, Brecheen will be presented with an aluminum boat and a trailer that he can use handily in connection with his many sporting activities.  After looking over a long list of fellows who played baseball with “The Cat” at one time or another, several of them have been invited to attend and take part in the celebration here Tuesday afternoon.  Pepper Martin Coming Pepper Martin, one time Cardinal player and more recently coach of a Pacific Coast league team, has informed local men that he will be present for the affair.  Martin like Brecheen is a great sportsman and it is likely that he and Brecheen will slip off to some wooded area after the celebration for a few shots at some squirrels.  Brecheen is expected to do some squirrel hunting, but he will spend most of his time right now preparing for a fishing trip. He won t forget his bird dogs, however, because he will have them in condition for quail season when it opens.  ‘‘The Cat” spent Sunday in McAlester visiting wdth his" parents and friends while his wife, Vera, came to Ada to visit her parents who make their home here Answers Questions on Series Brecheen had a better season ast year than he did this year, but he didn t get a chance to participate in a World Series as the Chicago Cubs w r on the pennant.  Many of Harry’s friends wanted some first hand information about the World Series this year and he promptly obliged by" answering questions as quickly as they were asked.  After getting away from the bulk of the crow'd that surrounded him most of the morning, Brecheen took one close friend, walked into a barber shop, his destination of the morning because he needed a shave, and started discussing a fishing trip.

Oct. 21.—(ZP)—Chinese communist and government negotiators met today for what some observers called a last-chance peace conference. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek himself called the meeting to order, while fresh fighting flared in the north and one Red spokesman said secession of communist areds from China “hangs by a hair ”  Within an hour, however, ( hiang departed, accompanied by Madame Chiang on a four-day inspection tour of Formosa, the official Central Daily News reported.

Each blames the other.  Up to the moment of today’s meeting at least, communists had not changed their public stand— a demand that both sides revert to their January territorial hold-ings in China. And the government still was insisting that any new truce should freeze positions as they now are. The communists have lost several key areas since January's short-lived truce.)

Power Strike Over, Pittsburgh Industry Swings To Normal  PITTSBURGH, Oct. 21—(AP)—Industrial life in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area swung back towards normal today upon the end of a 27-day power strike — longest and most costly in the nation’s history.  Hundreds of industrial plants resumed work at full speed to make up for lost production. Street car transportation was normal again and bus line operations almost normal.  For the first time in nearly four weeks, the Duquesne Light company announced that the 1,-  500.000 persons in the affected area could use all the electricity they wished. The current was voluntarily rationed during the strike.  Star| Making Repairs  With its 3,200 unionized employes back at w'ork, the company started making repairs that were let slide during the strike.

Conventions Canceled Conciliation sessions to end a 21-day old hotel strike, also costing the city considerable business, resume today. The eight lai gest hotels here have been virtually closed, resulting in cancellation of a number of conventions.  The power strike ended when the light company employes voted to submit their demands for a 20 percent wage increase and other issues to arbitration.  The vote, taken at a secret membership meeting, was 1.197 to 797 in favor of arbitrating the dispute which led to the strike, throwing thousands of men out of work in other businesses and dislocating the daily  _    -    —— -......—    owwvncat ut  llves  many inhabitants.

Howard James of Lawton, Okla.; a daughter, Mrs. Fred Lynn, Emporia, and three brothers. John and Evan, Emporia, ad Sam James, Mara-mec, Okla.  WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-(A>) —Both OPA and agriculture department officials indicated today that price controls will drop from flour, bread and other baked goods this week, possibly today or tomorrow.  An OPA spokesman said there has been some discussion of decontrolling bread, rolls and other baked goods while temporarily retaining ceilings on flour and other miller’s products.  “OPA has opposed this as inconsistent,” the agency spokesman said. “We informed the agriculture department that if controls are to be lifted on bread and baked goods, they also should be lifted at the miller level upon flour.”  This official pointed out that controls had been removed from all fats and oils, including shortening, which are a big share of bakers costs.  Deadline On Petition  Today was the deadline for action by the agriculture department upon a decontrol petition from the bake goods industry.  Agriculture previously had denied a decontrol request by millers but the industry renewed its petition and a public hearing was conducted last week.  Freeing of flour, bread and other goods from price ceilings would reduce OPA controls to a small share of the average family’s food. Cereals make up about 13 per cent of the average family budget and about 80 per cent of the food budget had been freed from price lids previously.  On the automobile front, where four industry-wide increases in the last year have boosted ceilings roughly 22 per cent above 1942 prices, the OPA official told a reporter:  “Most of the major manufacturers agree with us that automobile prices have gone about as nigh under ceilings as they should.”  Silent On GM Request The official declined to comment specifically, how’ever, on a pending General Motors request for an additional price boost similar to that granted the Ford Motor Company some weeks ago under terms of a hardship provision of the new OPA act.  The Ford increase amounted to about six per cent and was in addition to the general hikes granted to offset higher wage and material costs and to restore normal margins to dealers.  OP A has refused to say exactly how much of a boost GM has asked, although the figure of $100 a car has been mentioned by company executives at Detroit.  Officials have stressed that automobiles, along with building materials and other similarly scarce items are to be exempt from the administration’s November I goal of getting rid of most price controls. And some have interpreted President Truman’s meat decontrol speech as meaning that wage controls are to be junked only as price restraints are taken off specific industries. CIO-UAW Asks Wage Boost Heyce it was not clear here what the government’s official reaction would be to the action of the CIO-United Auto Workers union yesterday in calling for ’‘substantial” wage adjustments from all motor makers whose contracts have reopening clauses.  A statement designed primarily to clarify the status of the resignation-ridden wage stabilization board reportedly is being prepared.  Whether it may now be revised to take note of the CIO-UAW action at Cleveland remained a matter for speculation.  Separate petitions asking decontrol of flour and bakery products have been filed with the agriculture department, with today the deadline for action on the bakery products.  Officials said, however, that rather than remove ceilings by that route, which would require a finding that the products are in plentiful supply, the petitions themselves may be denied and an independent decontrol order issued on the government’s own initiative. This was the’ procedure followed in lifting controls over meat one week ago today.
