Norman FFA Group Gets 'Gold Emblem' One of 16 Chapters in Nation Whose Record Brings Coveted Award KANSAS CITY, Oct. 24 UP)— The Norman, Okla., chapter of the Future Farmers of America is among 16 chapters in the nation to be honored with coveted “gold emblem” award. The awards, announced last. night at a victory convention of the FFA, are presented in recognition of outstanding achievement | in farming practices and community improvements. | The Norman chapter was cited | for an extensive program which ! included culling of 6,725 head of I poultry' on 83 farms, blood testing 2,950 head of poultry on 42 farms, taking soil tests on 74 farms, testing 1,130 cows for butterfat, pruning 3,200 trees, starting a farmers’ market and repairing more than 1,500 pieces of farm equipment in their school shop. Norman's 50 chapter members completed an average of almost seven farming projects each, 13 farm improvements each and 27 supplementary farm jobs. The av erage investment of each member in farming is $601. Their chapter-owned incubator was used to hatch 8,750 chicks in a cooperative activity. The members also jointly raised and marketed 500 broilers and raised 15 -OOO tomato plants in a hotbed. Robert Bates is president of the Norman chapter, and E. F. Foreman is the chapter advisor. East Central’s current enrollment stands at 1,202, and this figure ranks the college third among state-suported colleges and universities, and fifth among all institutions of higher learning in Oklahoma. Early registration reports in September gave East Central 1,-194. At the same time other four-year colleges (except the Nni-versity of Oklahoma and Oklahoma A. Sc M. college) reported: Central State college, 817; Northeastern State college, 883; Northwestern State college, 554-Southeastern State college, 954 and Southwestern Institute of Technology. 820. . The largest of the Oklahoma junior colleges is Cameron State Agricultural college with 709 students. Under OCU and Tulsa East Central is larger than all but two of the state's private and denominational colleges. Its registration figure is greater than that of Oklahoma Baptist university and Phillips university, but smaller than Oklahoma City University and University of Tulsa. East Central had for a number of years preceding the war ranked in third place among state-supported institutions of higher learning. Its ten-year average enrolment (1932 to 1942) exceed that of the five sister colleges. During the ten years, 1932 to 1942, Central was larger than East Central in 1936 and Northeastern larger in 1938, but the local college was larger than the others for the other eight years. IO Year Average 1,427 The annual cumulative averages for the *32-’42 period (accumulative refers to individuals enrolled in all three semesters, but no name is counted more than once even though enrolled more than one semester in one year) as compiled by the Oklahoma Board of Regents for Higher Education shows that East Central had an average annual enrollment of 1,427. Central was nearest to this figure with a 1,332 average. Northeastern had 1,210, annually, and Southeastern, 1,164. U. S.

The board of affairs, taking note of recent newspaper stories on conditions at various state institutions, acknowledged that some mental patients were not receiving adequate treatment.

(IP) - -Thousands of acres of Indian-owned land in the Washita valley of Oklahoma will be considered when a land treatment pro-1 gram authorized by congress is worked out, the Indian bureau today assured Rep. Jed Johnson (D.-Okla.) Johnson recently transmitted to the bureau a letter from directors of the South Caddo (Okla.) soil conservation district declar-i„T the district has % 187,800 acres of Indian lands which under present regulations would not be benefitted or treated by the soil conservation service with funds made available through the Washita valley flood control program. Congress, the directors said, has authorized $11,243,000 for “various treatments to be administered to the entire watershed” in Oklahoma and Texas. “Since approximately one-third of this soil conservation district which is located in Caddo county has not been provided for in land treatment measures it is difficult for us to see how the flood control program will accomplish any material good as it is a recognized fact that to be effective soil conservation work must be carried out on all lands regardless of ownership in order to materially reduce floods or secure lasting benefits,” the directors wrote. jobs on Nevember I—as John L. Lewis has intimated — unless a conference on new wage demands begins in Washington on that date. In emphatic terms, Lewis has set a November I deadline for reopening negotiations, declaring that otherwise the government’s contract with his United Mine Workers union will be “void.” By tradition, that would mean a strike, since the miners follow a “no contract, no work” policy. “I don’t see how I can be there November I,” Krug told newsmen last night in Boulder City, Nev.     J    * “But I don’t think they will walk out. After all, the time and place of the meeting have been set.” Krug did not specify either the time or place “set” one of the major points in dispute—-and presumably referred only to the fact that he has offered to meet Lewis either at Tule Lake, Calif., on November I or in Washington i after November 6 when his west anothei em inspection tour is due to end *- V City Upping One of Fines • Will Assess Moxiumum For Reckless Driving; Sidewalk, Sign Hazards to Go A change in some city policies announced by W. E. Hansen, city manager, includes an increase in fine following a charge and conviction for reckless driving Instead of $5 to $10 fine, the manager says that the maximum of $20 will be assessed. Also cars and trucks parking in the center of downtown streets create a hazard to the motoring public. Hansen says that center parking must be eliminated, with no exceptions. The Fixit Shop on West Twelfth has moved merchandise from the sidewalk in front of his business, thus removing a hazard, and similar action is urged for other merchants who have been in the habit of displaying goods A survey is being made to determine what overhanging signs are not properly hung and owners of any found unsafe will be asked to hang them safely or remove them.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 24. OI*)_ With the smiling observation that election bets are against the law where he comes from, President Truman today declined to forecast the outcome of next month’s congressional contests. The president was asked at his news conference if he had made a wager with himself by placing his guess in a sealed envelope, as the late President Roosevelt used to do. He smiled, and said no. Then a reporter wanted to know whether he was willing to make a bet. The president commented that wagering on elections is contrary to the law of the state of Missouri. Later, however, he indirectly predicted the election of J. Howard McGrath as senator from Rhode Island. This came when he was asked if he had accepted McGrath’s resignation as solicitor general. Mr. Truman replied that he had, and remarked that a man couldn’t be senator and solicitor at the same time. For the third consecutive news conferen.e, Mr. Truman said had no plans for making a spe in the congressional campaign. A questioner asked if that meant he wasn’t going to speak for the democrats. The president said he didn’t say he would not make a speech, but that he had no plans to make any speeches. He added that he expects to go home to Missouri to vote. Mr. Truman said he did not discuss politics with anyone on his trip to New York yesterday to address the United Nations General Assembly. Greater returns for amount invested. Ada News Want Ads. An accident occurred about b:15 p. m. Wednesday in the 200 block West Main when a Model A Ford ran under the rear of car that was parked on the street, doing minor damage to both cars. When an officer arrived at the scene of the accident, he tried to move the Ford, but his efforts were not rewarded because the car wouldn’t move. The officer started filling out a report on the accident, and asked the driver of the Ford to hold a flashlight so he could see how to fill out the blank. Before the officer finished the report, the driver ran away, leaving the officer in the dark. The city policeman gave pursuit, but couldn t catch him, according to the police. An accident report was filled out on the wreck, but the driver of the Ford was not arrested by late Thursday morning. Read The News Classified Ads. Few Items lo Be Under Ceilings By Coming January When Congress May Kill OPA; Cosmetics, Most Foods Decontrolled Now WASHINGTON. Oct. 24 —UP) —Congress may kill OPA in Jan- u fF y - , some high administration officials predicted today. But they added that by then only a slim list of very scarce, badly needed items in addition to rent will remain under ceilings. As if to emphasize this forecast, OPA snatched its price tags from cosmetics and a long list of nonfood products today in a quick followup to last midnight’s sweeping food and beverage decontrol. Together the two actions swept overboard another big segment of wage control because the government applies its pay curbs only when higher price ceilings are involved. Wage Control Off 1,500,000 Statisticians said that in the case of food and restaurant industries along, some 1,500,000 workers were cut loose from wage control. On the food list, only sugar, syrups and rice remain under OPA. Frankly acknowledging that there is widespread belief in the government that congress will come back primed to knock out OPA quickly and finally, one ranking official said privately the policy between now and year’s end will be get rid of ceilings rapidly but in orderly sequence. This official said the view is that it would be to President U. N. Action Pledges U. S. to Full Support, Wonts U. N. to Hove Anti-Aggression Power NEW YORK, Oct. 24 ..^-President Truman, in his speech to the international United Nations assembly Wednesday, told the delegates that “The United States will support the United Nations with all the sources that we possess.” He also urged that the delegates reject “talk of war’’ but warned that “to permit the United Nations to be broken into irreconcilable parts by different political philosophies would bring disaster to the world.” American officials said that his address, while detailing the needs for early United Nations action on many issues, had laid down no new points of American foreign policy—and had omitted one piece of information in which there is much interest here: what is the United States going to do about and Russia over the right of the United Nations general assecbly to discuss small nation proposals for ending the big power veto in the security council. The American delegation, in a meeting today under the leadership of Chief Delegate Warren Austin, decided that it would insist upon the full right of the assembly to discuss this and two other issues listed on a provisional agenda now before the assembly’s steering committee.
