II. S. COOL TOWARD UN FOOD BOARD Demos Need Only Six House Seals Already Hold 54 in Stat# Lower House With 60 Enough for Control OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 26.— ZP —If democrats win only six of the house races to appear on the Nov. 5 general election ballot, they will gain control of the state house of representatives. ^ ith 60 seats needed for control. the democrats already have cinched 54 through failure of republicans to oppose them. Republicans have won five seats rn the same manner. Fifty-nine seats are contested, assuming the republican state committee appoints candidates to succeed a withdrawn nominee in Okmulgee county. If that vacancy is not filled, the number necessary for the democrats to win in order to gain control will be reduced to five. The twentieth house, now about to expire, includes 98 democrats and 22 republicans. Republicans have controlled the house only one time in the state's history, that in 1921 directly after the Harding landslide. Of the 59 seats contested in the general election. 41 now' are held by democrats, 18 by republicans. Extend Sugar Stamp Period Will Continuo Volid Through Nov. 30 to Help Whoro Shortage Slowed Conning WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.-(ZP)-Housewives will have another 30 days to use their canning sugar stamps, the OPA announced tonight. Instead of expiring at the end of this month, spare stamps No. 9 and IO will continue valid through Nov. 30. Each is good for five pounds. The action completes a series of moves designed to offset local and regional sugar shortages resulting from the maritime strike. Earlier this week arrangements were made to ship western beet sugar to the east. OPA officials had opposed this on two grounds. They said it would be a strike-breaking activity, and that railroad shipments from the w’est with additional freight costs might upset the ceiling prices. Agriculture department officials eliminated *part of these objections by agreeing that government fi nds would be used to pay the additional freight costs. The OPA announcement said tonight it had agreed to movement of “western beet sugar into eastern deficit areas” in order “to permit housewives to receive their fair share of sugar.” It added that extension of the valid date of the stamps “will permit housewives u'ho have been unable to obtain home canning sugar to finish putting up the last fruits of the canning season.” The regular table sugar stamp, spare No. 51 in ration books, remains good for five pounds until the end of this year. New Disfrid OF* Head Seriously Injured in (rash Doyle Sullivan, newly elected president of the district OEA and superintendent of Okmulgee county schools, was seriously injured Thursday afternoon as he was leaving Okmulgee enroute to Ada to attend the teachers meeting. He lost control of his automobile after colliding with a truck about one mile south of Okmulgee and the car crashed head on into a building at the old Barnsdall refinery. Mr. Sullivan, with two passengers, Frank Duke, Preston school superintendent, and a Mr. Stone were enroute when the accident occurred. The truck involved in the accident was traveling south ahead of Mr. Sullivan s car and made a left turn just as Mr. Sullivan attempted to pass. He is in an Okmulgee hospital suffering from a broken nose, a broken left jaw, a badly fractured left knee and lacerations about the face and body in addition to the roof of his mouth being broken. One of the other passengers in the car suffered a broken leg and the other has a broken arm. W. P. Hopper, secretary-treas-urer of the district OEA, said Saturday night that Mr. Sullivan was elated over being elected to head the East Central OEA organization. Mrs. Sullivan told Mr Hopper over the telephone Saturday night that the fact that her husband had been elected to the post possibly helped his condition. -UP) U. N. Speeches Point to Drive For Definition of Veto Powers And Modification of Its Uses fiy LARRY HAUCK NEW YORK, Oct. 26.—(AP)—The United Nations Assembly wound up its first week of debate today with the explosive issue of the veto still the number one question and with increasing signs that pressure might force a sharp definition of the uses of the voting power. ► It was apparent after addresses by the first 13 nations and several tense committee sessions that there was little possibility at this time for a charter revision to eliminate the veto. Rather the drive appeared aimed at forcing Russia, which has used the veto nine times in the security council, to agree to some modifications in its use. Norway, Chile and Turkey today joined in the campaign for a limitation of some sort. Previous speakers have deplored “excessive” and reckless” uses of the veto. Lange Reminds Big Powers Halyard M. Lange of Norway said the time was not ripe to revise the charter, but he called on the big powers to reach agreement among themselves and “to exercise the veto as it was planned to be—a safeguard to be used only in the last resort” Turkish Delegate Huseyin Ra-gip Baydur said the will of the majority always has prevailed for mankind and there was no reason to make the veto an exception, but added: ‘‘Nevertheless, if, for a period of transition, it may not be found possible entirely to eliminate the veto, we should at least consider means of limiting the field of its application.” Chile Not For Change Now Chilean Delegate Felix Nieto Del Rio said his country had opposed the veto from the first, but did not find there were sufficient grounds to justify a change now'. He commented that “it is reasonable to expect that the big powers will make as little use as possible of their veto right.” Nearly 40 countries remain to speak in the general debate and most observers expected all to make some comments on the question as a prelude to full-scale debate on the problem before the full assembly next month. Spanish Question Reappears Norway meanwhile thrust the Spanish question back into the spotlight with a proposal for a complete discussion of the controversial Question before the 51-nation body. “We feel,” Lange said, “that ways and means must be found through common aption of the United Nations to make every effort to assist the democratic forces of Spain, in their struggle to regain, without the horrors of another civil war, freedom and constitutional government. The U. N. secretariat hopes to wind up the debate by Wednesday when activities will be shifted to interim headquarters at Lake Success (pr the meetings of committees and sub-committees. More than 400 such sessions are on the calendar with regular plenary meetings of the assembly due to begin again at Flushing Nov. 25.

Lewis’ demand for reopening of the soft coal contract, the administration has not yet decided how to deal with the threatened strike, a cabinet member disclosed tonight. But the agreenr*>nt for settling the shipping strike on the Atlantic and gulf coasts eased one troublesome labor difficulty. Eid-bar L. Warren, director of the U. S. conciliation service, issued a statement saying the government hopes it will lead to an early peace in the Pacific coast strike. The cabinet member told a reporter the discussion of the Lewis demand by President Truman and his cabinet yesterday was “brief, and no decisions were reached.” Farmers Hold To Codon as Market Breaks Sharply By KRIS KREEGER NEW ORLEANS. Oct. 26- ..., —The flow of cotton to market has subsided to a mere trickle in most parts of the south since the drastic price break of last week, with farmers holding onto the staple in hopes of a rebound on the exchange boards. The withholding movement is apparent everywhere in the belt, a survey showed today, although the degree of the selling slack varies somewhat. Sales were down to IO per cent of normal in a number of areas. In some places only farmers in need of immediate cash were reported disposing of their product. Differ Over Effects There was a difference of opinion as to whether present withholding of cotton by farmers would itself be a major factor in forcing prices back to the point from which they started th^tum-ble of $25 to $30 per bale. Some brokers pointed out that most of the crop was already sold in the greater part of the belt. The break last week toppled futures $25 a bale in three days, and caused the unprecedented closing of cotton exchanges for a day. It was attributed mostly to the liquidation of a large New Orleans holding. No barometer was available to indicate widespread hardships or loss among farmers because of the price drop. The Federal Land bank of New Orleans indicated this might be reflected to some extent in next peek’s figures on loan repayments. Had Gone Over Expected Price One authority, who did not wish to be quoted by name, pointed out that farmers had planted their crop in general expectation of prices of about 25 cents a pound. The advance up around 40 cents gave them unexpected profits, he said, and the drop did not mean they would suffer losses. Others, however, noted an increase in farmers’ operating expenses and living costs. Moreover, they said, the price rise in cotton had probably caused many to change their plans and to make expenditures which they had not previously calculated. Miss Emma Keller Injured in Fall East Central Faculty Member Hot Broken Limb Miss Emma K. Keller, of the East Central college English department, fell at her home at 1004 East Fifteenth Saturday morning and broke the large bone in one leg.

WOOD MEXICO CITY, Oct. 26 <ZP)-Mexican troops with Indian guides fought their way through tangled underbrush today along the semi-tropical Blasas river in Mexico’s biggest manhunt in recent years seeking the killers of Nan Peiker Beach, 19, of Tulsa, Okla., and New York City. Nan, a bride of four months, was wounded fatally Wednesday night while sleeping in the arms of her husband, Charles Edward Beach, 28, New York City commercial artist. The young couple were on a honeymoon down the dangerous and desolate Blasas river, a trip few have dared to make and then only when heavily armed. The troops searched the town of Tetela, not far from the scene of the shooting, dor traces of loot taken from the young couple. From Tetela. about 62 miles due west of the main Mexico City to Acapulco highway, troops followed Indian trails virtually unknown except to the natives of Guerrero, one of the wildest sections of the country. A plane aided searchers. Beach said he was awakened by ‘the tremendous roar of the gun. Nan jumped and screamed and the tent was knocked down.” Three men, their faces covered with handkerchiefs, shined a flashlight in the faces of Beach and his wife. By its light, Beach ?™ T h * “Y the gaping wound in Nan s left shoulder. She died in Beach’s arms the next morning. Beach said the men took his .22 calibre rifle, their clothing, cameras, medical supplies and food an . f tn^ ien ° darkness.

Ort. 28 —GB— An* official American attitude of coolness and caution was adopted today toward a proposed United Nations food board with wide controls over production, prices and distribution. The United States will enter an international conference on the plan here Monday uncommitted for or against it. But a governmental decision to go slow was adopted, officials said, after a series of meeting* this week attended by representatives of the state and agriculture departments, national farm organizations and consumer groups. Fear Power Development Sharp opposition to the proposed control board was expressed by some government officials as well as by farm leaders. They expressed concern that it might be too powerful and become strong enough in time to dictate farm production policies for this and other countries. The proposal, advanced by Director-General Sir John Boyd Orc of the United Nations food and agriculture organization, will be taken up by a preparatory commission charged with formulating a long-term world food program The United States and 15 other nations are represented on the commission .which will open its Goering Had Vial of Poison From Time He Was Captured, Investigating Board Reveals By DON DOANE NUERNBERG, Oct.

It (Continued on Page 6, Column I) The report added that “an obscure recess in the inside of the toilet under the overhanding rim could have concealed the container for a time without detection except by an extraordinary search.” Soldier Guards Cleared The commisison completely absolved American soldier guards of any “dereliction of duty” in permitting Goering to escape the noose at the final hour, and declared its complete satisfaction w'ith the handling of prison security by the American army. It said ther° w f as no evidence involving German workers in the Nuernberg prison. Still withheld were the thr£e letters Goering left in his cell, and the commission said they wtould have to be released by the Allied Control Council in Berlin. One w’as addressed to Col. B. C. Andrus, the prison security officer, another to Mrs. Goering and the third to the German people. Brig. Paton Walsh, British member of the commission, said at a news conference after the report was issued that the letters “bear some relation to the event but the commission drew its own conclusions.” He said the letters “exonerated the security service and guard— if a statement from such a source is acceptable.” Had Broken Rule Walsh said that shortly before Goering went to bed on the night of the executions of his convicted fellow Nazi leaders “he assumed an extremely reposeful position with his hands outside the covers,” as regulations required. Shortly before his death, however, he placed his hands under the covers and it was presumed then that he obtained the poison which he had hidden somew’here on his body either in the “umbilical cavity” or the alimentary canal,” Walsh added. The commission’s findings were announced in a one-page statement after an all-day session in which it considered the report by the board of inquiry of three American officers who made a preliminary investigation of the suicide.
