Carden, district OPA rent executive, in charge of opening the Ada rent control office, announced today.  Registrations will be accepted at the local rent control office, room 8, Norris Haney building, IOO block west Main street, Carden said.  Card n, who will remain in Ada to assist in opening the office, said he is in the process of selecting staff members for the local office and that he expects to announce the personnel in the next day or two.  The Ada office, from which rent control will be administered also for Seminole and Garvin counties, will open officially on November I.  July I, 1915 Is Base From that date on, Carden explain '. do landlord may charge more fo** rent on housing" units than he charged on July I, 1945. which is the rental “freeze date” for this area.

Oct. 30 — (Jp) --Secretary of State Byrnes today sought the answer to this ticklish question tossed at him by the war department: Should he approve a round-the-world flight by a fleet of Army B-29 Superforts?  State department officials regarded the problem as delicate for several reasons.  First, they say the Army Air Forces put Byrnes on the spot by announcing October 8 — without consulting the state department— that eight to 24 of the big bombers would make the flight “if the state department approves.” Actually, the formal request for permission to carry* out the project reached Byrnes* desk only late yesterday.  Then, some department officials believe that since the end of the war both the army and navy on occasion have attempted to edge into state's field of charting American foreign policy. They regard the projected B-29 flight as the latest of these attempts.  In this connection, there is a strong desire by many high-level state department officials to avoid any act that could be called sword rattling.” They believe any larg? scale demonstrations of American military might could be exploited — particularly by Russia — to discredit this country i motives in international dealings.  -k— -  Polite Asking For Clean Fun, No Damaging Pranks  Police Chief Quinton Blake is going ti have his entire force on the job Thursday and Thursday night keeping Hallowe’en pranks of an undesired nature to a minimum. The city will be patrolled most of the night.  There will be two police cars patrolling the. city while one officer on a motorcycle assists.  Every member of the police force will be on duty, but the force is limited in numbers and the public is going to have to assist.  Fire Chief Ed Haley has requested that pranksters not put corn stalks and grass near houses or business buildings because SC  c V ate a defi nite fire hazard. Chief Blake said that his force will not be trying to stop youngsters from having legitimate fun, but it -s destructive pranks that ‘•-wants to youngsters to forget.  He stresses that there are ways to have clean fun without destroying public property.  In spite of the precautionary measures taken by both the police and fire departments, a close check will be made constantly on all parts of the city.  (lose Cotton Trading Today  Only Dallas Exchange Open; Effort Boing Mad# To Prevent Panic Sailing  NEW YORK,. Oct. 30~(A>)~The nation’s principal cotton exchanges suddenly were slammed shut today for the third time in less than two weeks after the price of King Cotton had tumbled by an extreme of more than $50 a bale.  The New York cotton exchange acted swiftly this morning, only a few minutes before trading was to open. The New Orleans and Chicago exchanges followed immediately. The Dallas, Tex., exchange refused too close.  Frank J. Knell, president of the New York exchange, said only that ‘‘numerous requests have been received from shipping centers in the cotton belt, pleading for a temporary suspension of trading in cotton futures to allow for an orderly survey of the spot situation in the south.”  Disruption Seldom Equalled  In an apparent move to prevent panic selling by hard-hit cotton producers, the department of agriculture in Washington issued a statement that the cotton crop was in a “favorable statistical position.”  The disruption in cotton trading in the last two weeks has been all but unprecedented.  On October 8 cotton for delivery in December was selling at a 26-year high of 39.13 cents a pound. At the close of trading yesterday it had hit a low of 29.15 a pound, a drop of approximately $50 a 500-pound bale.  One Case Started It  The liquidation of a single “long” account, in which a New Orleans trader was reputed to have held contracts for hundreds of thousands of bales, was held officially responsible for the original cotton break.  Thomas Jordan, who earlier had made millions in the New Orleans cotton market, has re-  Rogers lo Be al McSwain And Ritz in Two Appearances With 'Home in Oklahoma' Film  Second Theater to Have Famed Actor, Allowing 1,000  Mare to Get Tickets on First Coma-First Served Basis  Bill Turk, manager of the McSwain, Kiva and Ritz theaters, Wednesday morning announced that to accommodate the immense crowd that is expected at stage show in connection with the picture, “Home in Oklahoma” a second stage performance will be held at the Ritz theater.

Arrangements were being made here today for the sale of Jordan's seat on the New* York stock exchange for $64,000.  After all exchanges were closed on Saturday, October 19, to arrange for me liquidation of the single long account — more than 150,000 bales then remaining unsold — tho cotton market rallied.  However, after another closing last Saturday to allow dog-tired clerical workers to catch up with their work, the market suddenly started another tumble.  Silent On Reasons Official or quotable reasons for this drop have been conspicuous by their absence. One reason advanced for this unusual silence by brokers was that a congressional investigation already^was under way in Washington, at the instance of Senator Thomas (D-Okla.) Originally he had charged a bear raid on the market.  The effect of the / sharp price breaks has been profound, particularly in the south.  Rep. Sparkman (D-Ala) told reporters today in Washington that the slump was “completely demoralizing.” He said it had “ruined thousands of farmers, ginners, bankers and cotton merchants, not just speculators.”  Meanwhile, the cotton textile market boomed last week to chalk up the heaviest sales for a similar period in the last five years. The initial drop in raw cotton prices and announcement that textile ceilings would remain unchanged in November, despite this drop, generally were held responsible.  Stale Sates Tax Collections Gain  OKLAHOMA CITY, pct. 30— (4*)—The state tax commission reported yesterday the state's sales tax collections in September showed an increase of 33 percent over collections in the same month last year.

In the same period, the number of retail outlets making sales tax ^creased from 27,975 to  35,286.  GUTHRIE APPROVES BANDS  GUTHRIE, Okla..

They are working again and if the company officials have anything to do with it they will be working at all times in the future.  The working parts of all of the meters have been changed with replacements being installed.  It was explained that because oil was applied to the working parts they no longer worked in the manner intended—in fact, some of them seldom worked.  As has been the case for the past several days, a penny or nickle often would not register when the coins were inserted.  All of the meters that were oiled were taken up and are being sent back to the factory where the'parts will have to be cleaned thoroughly before they can be used again.  Instead of pouring the money out of the coin box into a sack as has been the custom heretofore, the coin boxes are being installed with a lock top that prevents the meters from being tampered with.  When a new coin box is inserted. it is sealed and when the money is collected the method will be different. The boxes will be taken from the meters and taken to the Convention hall where the seal will be broken and the money counted.  It will take quite a bit more time to make the collections, but it will be a more efficient method.

The extra stage performance was arranged only Wednesday morning after Griffith theater autht ’ties gave Turk the ‘go’ signal and he started making arrangements at once to let the public know about the other showing.  Rogers Expected  Nun erous rumors have been floating around about Roy Rogers not being able to attend the World Premiere of his picture “Home in Oklahoma,” but at press time today there was no official information along this line and as far as is known now Rogers will be on hand for the opening of his newest picture.  Theater employees were work-J g furiously Wednesday morning getting everything ready for the one performance, but when it was decided to have the second show the work tempo increased.  The stage show at the Ritz is scheduled to start at about 9:45 Pm. or immediately following the performance at the McSwain There will be no additional charge for the tickets to the Ritz —the price will be 40 cents for everyone. There will be no children tickets, but children will be admitted on 40 cent tickets.  The reason for the second showing is because of popular demand. All tickets to the McSwain were gone Saturday, but now about 1,000 additional tickets are available and will be used at the Ritz.

WARD  WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, CP*— The coal industry warned today that if the government negotiates a new wage contract with John V: ^ewis ** tie “much more difficult’’ to restore the soft coal mines to private operation, r* « e  ? arnin * fame from John D. Battle, executive secretary of the National Coal Association. lust two days before government officials are scheduled to meet with Lewis, who is demanding a new wage pact for his 400,000 United Mine Workers. The Chal association speaks for the majority of bituminous producers.  With his 400,000 miners ready to walk out if the government fails to yield on his pay demands. Lewis played a tight hand and let the administration worry about a solution. ,  Careful study of the miners’ present contract reportedly convinced some government lawyers that Lewis has a strong argument to support his contention that he is entitled to reopen the entire quesion of wages, hours and other matters. By contrast, secretary of the interior J. A. Krug has maintained there can be no question of a new contract and only the present working agreement with the government can be discussed.  Some officials privately expressed belief that Cor Mines Administrator N. H. Collisson, pinch-hitting for Krug at the Friday conference, might offer another type of concession than actual wage increases. Krug himself is away on a western inspection tour. He is not scheduled to return to Washington until after November 6.  Despite the timing of Lewis’ wage demands — hitting right at the peak of the government’s efforts to junk both price and wage controls and still discourage industrial strife — the administration was reported ready to get rid of the wage stabilization board as it now stands.  Under the plan most discussed controls over prices and pay would be continued for the time being in certain key industries such as coal, steel and automobiles in each of which threats of new wage demands have been raised.

Austin’s address, it was learned. will contain some references to the Soviet leader’s speech in the assembly yesterday in which he demanded immediate action on a four-point arms control proposal.  NEW YORK. Oct 30. UP-— Fears of new tensions between Russia and the western powers J over atomic controls, disarmament, the veto and other critical issues swept through many United Nations assembly delegations today as diplomats from from 50 other member countries debated the challenging policy speech hurled into the assembly by Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov.  Tile Soviet leader topped off his speech with a four-point arms reduction program, including a request for action by the assembly to try to get the United States to stop making atomic bombs.  American and other major delegation members were leport-ed considering what response they might make to this as well as to various charges laid down by Molotov in blunt, sometimes harsh, language.  Austin to Respond * Warren R. Austin, chief United States delegate, had an opportunity to respond to the Russian leader today. He was scheduled to speak during the second of two assembly sessions but aides reported he almost certainly would not revise the main holy of his address.  It was prepared before Molotov tossed his oratorical bombshell in a lively session last night, and reportedly deals in a conciliatory vein with the veto issue and other U. N. constitutional problems.  Molotov assailed Winston Churchill as a “prophet” of “aggressive, imperialist circles” in America and Britain and blasted Bernard Baruch. U. S. member of the U. N. atomic commission. for allegedly holding a “militant philosophy” leading toward a “new aggression.”  A tucks IT. S.

N report on American and British troops in foreign lands. Cappin x off his address with the four-point arms reduction plan, he urged the assembly to act on it at once This produced one of the most dramatic incidents in the assembly to date.  ALVA.
