COOL TOWARD UN FOOD BOARD Extend Sugar Stamp Period Will Continue Valid Through Nov. 30 to Help Where Shortage Slowed Canning WASHINGTON, Oct. Housewives will have another 30 days to use their canning sugar stamps, the OPA announced to- night. Instead of expiring at the enc of this month, spare stamps No 9 and 10 will continue valid through Nov. 30. Each is good for five pounds. The action completes a seriep of moves designed to offset local and regional sugar shortages re- sulting 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 ac- tivity, and that railroad shipments from the west with additional freight costs might upset the ceil- ing prices. Agriculture department officials eliminated -part of these objec- tions by agreeing that govern- ment funds would be used to pay the additional freight costs. The OPA announcement said tonight it had agreed to move- ment 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 of1 the stamps "will permit housewives who 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, re- mains good for five pounds until the end of this year. class president- this year.

East Central State college and the city of Ada are pleased but not exactly surprised that these boys would travel from all parts of the country to come back to a setting made pleasant for them during their month here in uni- form. Only Demos Need Six House Seats Already Hold 54 in State Lower House With 60 Enough for Control OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. democrats win only ,six of the house races to appear on the Nov. 5 general election bal- lot, they will gain control of the state house of representatives. With 60 seats needed for con- trol, the democrats already have cinched 54 through failure of re- publicans to oppose them. P.epublicans have won five seats in 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 Fifty-nine seats are contested, assuming the republican state committee appoints candidates to succeed a withdrawn nominee in Okmulgee county.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 neces- sary for the democrats to win in order to gain control will be re- d-jced 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. iWEATHER OKLAHOMA: Cloudy nnd cool- er, scattered showers in north Sunday and Sunday night; Mon- day cooler, ram in east and cen- tral New District OEA Head Seriously Injured m (rash Doyle Sullivan, newly elected president of the district OEA and superintendent of Okmulgee county schools, was seriously in- jured Thursday afternoon as he was leaving Okmulgee enroute to Ada to attend the teachers meet- ing. He lost control of his automo- bile after colliding with a truck about one mile south of Okmul- gee and the car crashed head on into a building at the old Barns- dall refinery. Mr. Sullivan, with two passen- gers, Frank Duke, Preston school superintendent, and a Mr, Stone were enroute when the accident occurred. The truck involved in the acci- dent was traveling south ahead of Mr. Sullivan's car and made a left turn just as Mr. Sullivan at- tempted to pass. He is in an Okmulgee hospital suffering from a broken nose, a broken left jaw, a badly fractur- ed 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 Sat- urday night that Mr. Sullivan was elated over being elected to head the East Central OEA or- ganization. Mrs. Sullivan told Mr. Hopper over the telephone Sat- urday night that the fact that her husband had been elected to the post possibly helped his condi- tion. No Decisions Yet On Lewis Demands WASHINGTON, Oct. days after John L. Lewis' demand for reopening of the soft coal contract, the administration has not yet decided how to deal with the threatened strike, a cab- inet member disclosed tonight. But the agreerrpnt for settling the shipping strike on the Atlan- tic and gulf coasts eased one troublesome labor difficulty. Ed- bnr 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 re- porter the discussion of the Lewis demand by President Truman and his cabinet yesterday was "brief, and no decisions were reached." U. N. Speeches Pdint to Drive For Definition of Veto Powers And Modification of Its Uses "LARRY HAUGK NEW YORK, Oct. United Nations As- sembly wound up its first, week of debate today with the ex- plosive issue of the veto still the number one. question and with increasing signs that pressure might force a sharp defi- nition of the uses of the voting power. It was apparent after addresses by the first 13 nations and sev- eral tense committee sessions that there was little possibility at this time for a charter .rev s- ion to eliminate the veto. Rath- er the drive appeared airned at forcing Russia, which has used the veto nine times iri the se- curity counpil, to agree to some modifications in its use. Norway, Chile and Turkey'to- day joined in the campaign for a limitation of some sort.1 Pre- vious speakers have deplored "excessive" and reckless" uses of the veto. Lange Reminds Big- Powers Halvard M, Lange oil Norway Farmers Hold To Cotton as Market Breaks Sharply By KRIS KREEGER NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 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 th'e 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 10 per cent of normal in a number of areas. In some places only farmers in need of imme- diate cash were reported dispos- ing 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 ble of to 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 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 said the time was not ripe to.re- vise the charter, but he called on the big powers to reach agree- ment among themselves-and "to exercise the veto as it was plan- ned to safeguard .to be us- ed only in the last resort." Turkish Delegate Husey.in Ra- gip Baydur said the will sot the majority always has prevailed for mankind and there was no reason to make the veto an ex- ception, but added: "Nevertheless, if, for1 a period of transition, it may not be found possible entirely to eliminate the veto, we should at least consid- er means of limiting the field of its application." Chile Not For Change Now Chilean Delegate Felix Nieto Del Rio said his country had' op- posed the .veto from 'the .first, but did not find there' were suf- ficient 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 loss among farmers because of j speak in the general debate and the'price drop. The Federal Land [most observers expected all to 'make' some comments on' the question as a prelude to full- scale :debate on the problem be- fore the full assembly next mon- bank of New Orleans 'indicated this might -be "reflected to1 some extent in-next week'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 ex- pectation of prices of about 25 cents a pound. The advance up around 40 cents gave them unex- pected profits, he said, and the drop did not mean they would suffer losses. Others, however, noted an in- crease in farmers' operating ex- penses and living costs. More- over, 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. DETROIT, Oct. Ed- ward R.

Goering Had Vial of Poison From Time He Was Captured, Investigating Board Reveals By DON DOANE NUERNBERG, Oct. Goering had the vial of poison with which he committed suicide from the time he was captured, and may have hidden it in bis navel, a report by the four-power commission investigating his death said today. At .some time the vial was his alimentary tract, and it could j been hidden a time in the toilet of his cell, the report added. Prison authorities have said the cartridge-like 'container for" 'the glass poison capsule, which was found in Goerin.g's cell after he committed suicide 'less than two hours before-'he was to have faced the hangman on Oct. 16, was about two inches long and a half an inch thick.

A similar vial containing poison was taken from Goering when he was captured.

Soldier Guards Cleared The commisison completely ab- solved American sol'dier guards of any "dereliction of duty" in permitting Goering to escape the noose at. the final hour, and de- clared its complete satisfaction with the handling of prison se- curity by the American army. It said there, was no evidence in- volving German workers in the Nuernberg prison. Still withheld were the three letters Goering .left in his cell, and the commission said they wbuld have to be released by the Allied Control Council in Ber- lin. One was addressed to Col. B. C. Andrus, the prison security officer, another' to Mrs. Goering and the third to the German people. Brig.

Then they were told by their mother's landlady they would have to move out Monday. West has been unable to find another home. Meet Opens On Monday Officials, Farm Leaden Say Proposed Board Could Develop Too Much Power WASHINGTON, Oct. 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 govern- mental decision to go slow was adopted, officials snid, after a series of meetings this week at- tended by representative's of the states nnd agriculture depart- ments, national farm organiza- tions and consumer groups. Fear Power Development Sharp opposition to the pro- posed control board was. express- ed 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 Di- rector-General Sir John Boyd Orr of the United, Nations food and agriculture organization, will be taken up by a preparatory com- mission 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 meetings here Monday. Creation of the commission was authorized by the recent; conference of the FAO at Copenhagen. Sir John proposed thnt the food board be given authority to build up reserves of agricultural com- modities in years of good harvests and that it be permitted to buy and sell these reserves ifor the purpose of stabilizing prices at "levels fair to producers and con- sumers alike." He proposed also that the board be permitted to sell unmarket- able surpluses on special terms to undernourished and undevel- oped countries. U. S. for General Plan This government is in hearty agreement with the general ob- jective of the Orr pre- vent a new period of farm sur- pluses and depressed prices or of undue shortages and skyrocketing prices. But those officials nnd farm leaders concerned with the prob- lem generally feel the objective can be accomplished without creating a powerful international agency. They believe it can' be done by means of a series of international commodity agree- ments involving the major ex- porting and importing nations They hold the view that under the commodity agreement meth- od, each participating country would have more to say about what happened than if the mat- ter was turned over to a single international agency. In other words, no nation could be bound or affected by any decision unless it agreed to be bound. As to the suggestion that the food board bo authorized to dis- pose of surpluses to low-income countries nt cut-rate prices, the four was expressed that this country might be called upon to foot most of the bill. This country's delegates will not oppose the creation of a world food board as such, but will fight against giving it powers suggested by Sir John. American officials suggest that such a board might be created to direct the negotia- tions of commodity agreements.
