'He had been playing in the yard, then had been missing not more than 15 minutes when his mother. Mrs. Claudia Braly, look- ed for him and, not seeing liim, heard some boys playing to the east, started through the neigh- borhood, following 11 path the small children often used. She found Leonard Allen in n shallow fishpond on the grounds of the home of Mrs. Alice Fleet, and when her scream brought others, had them call an ambu- lance and the fire station where a pulmotor is kept. Pulmolor Csed The motor began artificial res- piration and when the ambulance driver arrived he continued this. Then the firemen came with the pulmotor and for two hours the battle for the small boy's life continued. At one time his heart was felt to beat faintly but the efforts of the workers could not keep it sustained. Third son of the Bralys, Leonard Allen was born not long after his father had gone overseas with his field artillery unit. Mack Braly, after service in Central Europe, emerged from his army service vith rank of lieutenant colonel. Mack Braly has been city at- torney here for 12 years. Member of Pioneer y The Bralys are a pioneer fam- ily in this county. J. A. Braly, great-grandfather of Leonard Allen, came to this area in the early nineties. A great-grand- mother. Mrs. Emma Muratet, also survives and is living in Ada. Other relatives, in addition to the parents and brothers, include Mrs. Lottie Braly and Mrs. George Moore, grandmothers, both living here. John Moore, Oklahoma City, brother of Mrs. Mack Braly, was in South Dakota Monday and this caused delay of notifying him of the tragedy. Leonard Allen was described "the happiest child in the delighting in being with people he knew and winning their pleased affection in return.

Hanson, who is starting his second week as city manager in Ada, made his first report to the City Council Monday night at its first regular meeting since the new manger came to office. The council was pleased with the com- pleteness of the report given. A complaint registered with the council Oct. 34 concerning flood conditions that exist on East Seventh between Beard and Mis- sissippi was investigated by the city manager. He reported that inasmuch as the street is not paved, it is not advisable to at- tempt a permanent solution at this time. However, measures of a temporary nature have been taken. A temporary concrete drainage line is now being .in- stalled for a distance of approxi- mately 232 Toot long. Tile Already Owned The stock being used to help remedy the flood condition is from u stock owned by the city. The drainage tile was purchased, several months ago, but was never used. Hansen said that this job should be completed before the end pf next week. The city manager brought to the attention of the council the fact that the city loses money every imp a building permit is issued. "The existing method of schedule does not afford the le- gitimate contractor, the property owner or tenants the protection they are rightfully entitled Hansen said in his report. Suggests Permit Schedule Change The proesnt policy is to charge for constructions estimated from to and the maxi- mum charge is for construc- tion of buildings estimated from to Hanson pointed out- that the continuance of the foregoing schedule will be a continuing of a direct monetary loss to the city. He then suggested a new rate to be charged. The proposed schedule is to charge for buildings cost- ing between and on up to for those estimated to cost from to Each ad- ditional or fraction to and including would be As the estimated cost increase the price per decrease. The council told Hansen to con- tinue with his plans for making the changeover. Locales Shop Equipment Hanson made an inspection of the present shop facilities and found several pieces of equipment in order for the mechanic to carry on the repair work required on city-owned vehicles. He reported that one hydraulic floor jack, three-ton capacity; one heavy duty bench drill and stand, one-half inch capacity; one air compressor having about seven cubic feet of air capacity per minute; one paint spray unit com- plete with spray gun, one six-inch double-wheel bench grinder, one transmission grease gun, one dif- ferential-type one or one-and-a- half-lon hoist and one valve re- seating outfit, universal type, is needed now. The total cost of the items mentioned will not ex- ceed "Go" Signal on Signal Lights The council gave Hansen the 'go' sign on recommended work in connection with the installa- tion oT new wiring for signal lights. "Inasmuch as this defective cable will have a salvage value far less than the cost of 'removal, it is recommended that the cable be abandoned in place in the new cable Hansen said, then added, "It is proposed to do the necessary excavating and street repair work with city em- Celebration Pleasant Surprise to Modest Card Pitching Star He may never say just how much he appreciates the boat and trailer that is going to be pre- sented to him, but Harry "The Cat" Brecheen will get just what he wanted when he takes the presents home with him follow- ing the celebration Tuesday after- noon.

Proposals On German Banking By EDWIN SHANKE BERLIN, Oct. 22 (VP) The Russians have blocked Allied agreement on an American pro- posal for decentralizing German banking institutions and setting up central land banks patterned after the U. S. Federal Reserve system, an announcement of the Allied Control Council disclosed .today. The proposal, discussed yester- day at the council's regular "meet- ing, aimed at liquidating .the economic power over business and banking held by five leading German banks. The Soviet delegate- to the council, Gen. P. Kuroohin, took Cancer Unit Clink Draws 96 Persons Visiting Physicians Pleased With Response Here; Local Organization Planned There were 96 persons regis- terd Monday at the cancer clinic held at the First Christian church, more than had been anticipated. Visiting physicians in charge of the mobile cancer detection unit that was here for the day expres- sed pleasure at the response, say- ing it was satisfactory in every way. Some of those who came had already had cancer identified, some had some of the indications that, point to possibility of cancer and there were some who didn't think they had cancer but simply wanted to take the examination and be certain. Results Known Soon Results of the tests will be sent back in about a week to local physicians, nnd at the same time letters will be mailed to the individuals examined and found with cancer or possibility hav- ing it advising them to report to Mandates One of First Major Problems to Come Up After U.

The program hns been so ar- ranged that several notables will appear on the speakers platform, which will be located at the cor- ner of Main and Broadway.-The 100 block on South Broadway will be roped to handle the crowd. Starting at the corner of Thir- teenth and Broadway, the Ada High School band and Contna- l-.oma pep club will march to the speakers stand, according to C. Russell Smith, who made most of the arrangements for the pro- gram. Trice Broadrick, Ada High school principal and president of the Junior Chamber of Comrfierce will be master of ceremonies. Mayor Frank Spencer will give a welcome address. Leonard (Pep- per) Martin will have a definite part on the program as he will bi called on to make a talk, in- troduce Brecheen and present the boat and trailer. The program has been planned to the very minute and most of it will be broadcast over Radio Station KADA from to 5 p.m. The celebration was started by the Junior Chamber of Commerce with the Chamber of Commerce and members of the fire depart- ment assisting. It was through the cooperation of these three groups that the program has reached its present peak. Newsmen and photographers from Dallas, Tex., and Oklahoma City will be present at the affair to give it full coverage. He proposed therefore, disasso- ciating the question of 'immediate liquidation of banking monopolies from the problem of establishing a central German banking ma- chinery as a substitute. This question, he insisted, should be decided in connection with general finance problems of Germany, such as stabilization of currency. In disagreeing with the Soviet proposal, U. S. Gen. Joseph "T. McNarney declared "it would be an indefinite and, long time before the finacial structure of Germany received quadripartite agree- ment." Because the council could not agree, the proposal was with- drawn from the agenda. The practical effect was that the entire matter will be referred back to the individual govern- ments, said Theodore H. Ball, deputy director of the finance division of the American military government. LAD SAYS JUST BORROWED BIKE Indian Boy Also Unworried Over Idea of Industrial School City police arrested a 14-year old Indian boy over the week- end after finding a stolen bicycle in his possession. The boy lives in a trailer house east pf the un- derpass south of Ada. The youngster told the police that he was in' Ada and didn't want to "walk he just "borrowed" the bicycle to make the trip to his home. Police were still trying to figure why the youngster painted the bicycle if he only wanted a ride home. County Judge W. G. Lor.g talk- ed with the boy Monday morning to get a little more background on the case. He mentioned send- ing the youngster to the Pauls Valley Industrial School for Boys. When the school was mentioned, the boy said, "Let me go over there for about three months and see how I like it."

The suit was brought by H. M. Shirley, Coalgate, defeated pri- mary candidate for the senate from Coal and Atoka counties, and 'John R. Hickman, former secretary of the Coal county elec- tion board. The court pointed out that the law in question was passed nine years before its decision -holding piecemeal re-districting unconsti- tutional and ruled that the pres- ent districts had been in existence too long to-be affected by court action now..

The physicians with the unit then assembled with members of the Ppntotoc County Medical As- sociation, showed the movie and engaged in a clinical discussion of cancer with the Pontotoc coun- ty physicians. Local Organization Planned Next step' planned here is or- ganization of a county unit of the state "Field Army." Mrs. Ju- lia Mae Smith has been desig- nated commander and is already making plans for get- ting the group organized and working toward an effective pro- gram1 that will eventually mean adequate, facilities for .cancer de- tection arid 'treatment at Ada, to serve this part of the state. _ 'Mrs. Smith expresses' apprecia- tion for assistance of several local citizens, including Miss Flora Tibby, of the East Central State college registrar department, and Mrs. Beulah Mae Smith. These two took care of. the secretarial work of registering the 96 who came to take the examination. She also appreciates the use of space in the Christian church.

At the end of the first full week of uncontrolled meat prices, a spot check of 48 cities by the As- sociated Press produced a score- board that read like this: Red 'meat has come back in sharply improvem to ample quan- tities on the counters of 39 com- munilies, in nine others six of them in the east meat is still scarce to. non-existent. Prices have risen everywhere, in a few cases by as little or even less than the federal subsidy that vanished with OPA control, but in one-third of the 48 cities prices of a pound or more have been chalked up for choice cuts. Resistance to these prices has appeared in degrees ranging from beyond the muttering stage to ac- tive organized picketing in 34 of the survey cities.

Fire in Southern Ice Company Plant Two Hours Required To Extinguish Stubborn Blaze Starting in Engine Room Fire Chief Ed Haley was un- able Tuesday morning to arrive at a figure in relation to damage done to the Southern Ice com- pany plant when fire started in the engine room some'time after midnight Monday. Firemen rushed to the scene of the fire at 2 a.m. and worked un- til 4 a.m; before the blaze was extinguished. Most of the damage was done to the east wall of the building and to the roof over the engine room. Almost every part of the build- ing was damaged by smoke, ac- cording to Chief Haley, who made an inspection Tuesday morning. Employees of the ice plant are having' to check all the freezing containers that occupied the room that caught fire to see that no excess water entered them. Chief Haley said that it will be Wednesday before the cause of the fire and the damage can be determined.

An OPA official said today that November shoppers for cotton dresses, shirts and similar items are due to save money as a result of last week's market break. "The drop in cotton prices on markets will avoid a threatened boost in ceilings during Novem- the agency, spokesman told a reporter. He provided this ex- planation: Under a provision of the OPA extension net, the ceiling tags of most cotton goods must be lied to the market prices of cotlon. Thus if market prices rise one month, OPA must lift its ceilings on col- ton products the next month. Such increase were required for August, September and Oc- tober. In the case of men's, women's and' children's cotton garments the'boosts totaled about 10 per cent. Ceilings on cotton lexliles, such as piece goods, climbed 23 per cent during Ihe same period. The provision requires OPA lo compute'its-nei.v ceilings on either the so-called parity price for .cot- ton or the recent average market whichever is higher. With the parity price near 25 cents a pound, the average mark- et price has been much higher. Last month it averaged 36.51 cents a pound during the 8th to the 22nd base period used by OPA for the purpose. For the period October 8 to 16 the aver- age was above 38 cents. However last w'eek's slump off- set the early increase so there will be no boost in ceilings for November, the OPA official said.

MARBLES FELT LIKE COCONUTS When Chief Haley Yanked On Boots and Found Grandson's Marbles There "They felt like was tlie comment of Fire Chief Ed Haley when he jumped into his boots to go to a fire at the Southern Ice company Monday night. He was referring to some marbles that he found when ho slipped the boots on. What the fire chief didn't know that his grandson. Joe Ed Jared, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Jared, Jr., had been playing with his boots duringg the day. It all happened as a surprise to Chief Haley and while still half asleep it took him a full minute to determine what had been crammed into his boots. To remedy the situation, the chief plans to keep his boots out of the reach of his young grand- son, but even then he says that he will inspect them before slip- ping them on. The fire chief apparently had forgotten how children get a- round because his youngest child is olayinp football for the Cou- gars, but the one lesson is enough of a reminder that there is a youngster in the house. U. S. Rebuffed By Bulgaria Russia Says No to U. S. Plan for Guaranteeing Free, Fearless Elections By ALEX H. SINGLETON WASHINGTON, Oct. Russia's jealous grip on the Bal- kans was underlined anew today as the stale department docketed still another Soviet rebuff this time in connection with Bulgar- ia. The department disclosed that the latest friction developed when Russia bluntly rejected an Am- erican plan for Allied action to guarantee free and fearless elec- tions in Bulgaria. Moscow's official representa- tive, Col. Gen. Sergei Biryusov. asserted the plan was not only improper from a standpoint but also constituted "rude interference" in Bulgarian affairs. Will Watch Anyway Obviously nettled, the state de- partment countered yesterday by serving notice that it will keep a sharp watch on the Bulgarian elections, scheduled for October -7. In addition, it appeared like- ly that the United Stales will continue to withhold its recogni- tion of the Bulgarian government. at least until satisfied that Bul- garia's assurances of a free elec- tion have been fulfilled. The issue once again emph- asizing Soviet resentment over any attempt to probe into Rus- sia's spheres of interest deve- loped originally from request made by Secretary of State Byrnes in Paris on September '14. At Unit Byrnes naked for a special session of UK; Tri-Powcr Bulgiirinn council control coin- mission to "consider the slops" necessary to insure a free elec- tion in Bulgaria and urged the following: 1. Freedom of press, radio and assembly for the opposition. 2. Non-interference by the mil- ilia, either with candidates or vo- ters, except to maintain law nnd order. 3. Release of political prisoners, or open declaration of charges against them. 4. Elimination of any possible threat of post-election retaliation for political reasons. Reminded of Promise Byrnes also addressed a letter to Bulgaria's prime minister Kim- on Georgiev reminding him of the hopes expressed at Yalta by Pres- ident Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and Marshal Stalin for free democratic elections in the liberated lands. The slate department said Gcorgiev replied that the Bulgar- ian government hud already de- cided to hold "entirely free elec- tions" and specified that freedom of the press in Bulgaria wns "fully assured within the limits of existing law."
