C'arcJ -n, who will remain in Ada to assist in opening the office, said he is jn the process uf select- ing staff members for the local of- fice and that he expects to an- nounce the personnel in the next day or two.

Registration dates for dwellings in Seminole and Garvin counties will be announced later. Here Are Rules Garden pointed out certain rules for landlords to remem- a fleet of Army B-29 Superforts? .State department officials re- garded the problem as delicate for several veasons. First, they say the Army Air Forces put Byrnes on the spot by announcing October 8 without consulting the state that eight to 24 of the big bomb- ers would make the flight "if the state department approves." Actually, the formal request for permission to carry out the pro- ject reached Byrnes' desk only late yesterday. Then, some department officials Close Cotton Trading Today Only Dallas Exchange Open; Effort Being Made To Prevent Panic Selling NEW Oct. nation's principal cotton exchan- ges 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 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 im- mediately.. The Dallas, Tex., ex- change refused too' close. Frank J. Knell, president of the New York said only that "numerous requests have been received from snipping cen- ters in the cotton belt, pleading believe that since the end of the I for a temporary suspension of Ada for, says she. this lias been .home too long for her to reside anywhere else.

This means every house, flat, cabin, or room, which is rented. 3. They must report all changes of tenancy within five days after they occur and show every new tenant the landlord's copy of the registration. 4. If one becomes the owner of a housing accoinodation after the time it was registered, the change of ownership must be re- ported to the rent office. 5. They must not under any cir- cumstances collect more than the ceiling rent shown on the regis- tration statement unless they haw a written order from the rent office authorizing an increase in rent. 6. They mus.t not decrease the services the tenant has been get- ling unless they obtain written permission from the rent office. Eviction Only For Reason 7. They must not evict or at- tempt to evict a tenant unless they have substantial grounds for eviction provided in the rent reg- ulation. 8. If a landlord believes he has grounds for getting an increase in rent he must file a petition set- ting forth the facts. Tenant Responsibility, Too Tenants too have their respon- sibility under rent control, Car- den emphasized. He said they should remember the following facts: 1. If they rent a house, apart- ment, hotel room, boarding house room or. parking space for a trail- er in tliis area, maximum rent has been fixed for it. 2. The ceiling' rent generally should be no higher than rent a tenant paid for the same acco- modations 'on July 1, 1945. Serv- ices, such as heat, water and gar- bage collection, should be gen- erally no less than those on the maximum rent date. 3. When a tenant rents a house, Ftparlment or room in a private home he should ask his landlord to show him a copy of the official OPA registration statement. It ?ivcs the-legal maximum rent and lists the services to which the tenant is entitled. The tenant then should comply with landlord's request to sign the reg- istration statement and a change of tenancy form. If the tenant lives in a hotel, boarding or room- ing house, he should find the max- war both the army and navy on occasion have attempted to edge into state's field of charting Am- erican 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 official's to avoid any act that could be called "sword rattling." They believe any scale demonstrations of American military might could be exploited -particularly by Hussia to discredit this coun- trading in cotton futures to allow for an orderly survey of the spot situation in the south." Disruption Seldom Eoualled In an apparent move to pre- vent panic selling by hard-hit cotton producers, the department of agriculture, in Washington is- sued a statement that the cotton crop was in a "favorable statis- tical position." The -Usruption in cotton trading in the last two weeks has been all but unprecedented. On October 8 cotton for de- dealings. Wl. HJUCJ.

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 ori- ginal cotton break. Thomas Jordan; earlier had made millions, in the; New Orleans cotton- market, has re- fused either to confirm or ,deny that he was the trader concerned. Arrangements were being made here today for the sale of Jor- dan's seat on.the New York stock exchange for After all exchanges were closed on Saturday, October 19, to ar- range for the liquidation of -the single long account more than bales' then remaining un- sold the: 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.

The -boat manufacturer start- ed his business when he return- ed from the war. His is the story, about the hometown boy who returned homevto 'establish a business. Pennington will explain var- ious things connected with his business including the construc- tion of boats. Since the first boat was start- ed, Pennington has had a con- stant demand for his well con- structed boats and so far he has been working from behind try- ing to meet the orders'. The Pennington shop is locat- ed behind the Ada Dairy and Ranch Supply store, Twelfth and Johnston. Okla.) Originally he had charged a bear raid on the market. The effect of thefsharp price breaks has been profound, par- ticularly 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 mer- chants, 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.

By contrast, secretary of the-interior J. A. Krug has main- tained there can .be no question of a new cont'rac't and only the present working'agreement with the.government can be discussed. Some officials privately expres- sed belief that Cor' Mines Admin- istrator 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 re- turn to Washington until after November 6. Despite the timing of Lewis' wage demands hitting right at the peak of the government's ef- forts to junk both price and wage controls and still discourage in- dustrial strife the administra- tion 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 automo- biles in each of which threats of new wage demands have been raised. Reconversion director John R. Steelman's 12-man advisory NEW YORK, Oct. 30. Fears of new tensions between Russia and the western powers over atomic controls, disarma- ment, the veto and other criti- cal issues swept many United Nations assembly dele- gations today as diplomats from from 50 other member countries debated the challenging policy speech hurled into the assembly by Soviet Foreign Minister Vya- cheslav M. Mololov. The Soviet leader topped off his speech with a four-point arms reduction program, including a request for action by the as- sembly to try to get the Unit- ed Slates to stop making atomic bombs. American and other major delegation members were report- ed considering what response they might make to this as well as to various charges laid down by Mololov in blunt, sometimes harsh, language. Austin to ResjKind Warren R. Austin, chief Unit- ed Stales delegate, had an op- portunity to respond to the Rus- sian leader today. He was scheduled to speak during the second of two assembly sessions but aides reported he almost cerlainly would not revise the main body of his address. It was prepared before 'Molo- tov tossed his oratorical bomb- shell in a lively session last night, and reportedly deals in a conciliatory vein with the veto issue and other U. N. constitu- tional problems. Molotov assailed Winston Churchill as a "prophet" of "ag- gressive, imperialist circles1' in America and Britain and blast- ed Bernard Baruch, U. S. mem- ber of the U. N. atomic commis- sion, for allegedly holding a "militant philosophy" leading to- ward a "new aggression." Attacks U. S. Atomic Plan He attacked the American ato- mic control plan as designed to give this country an atomic mon- opoly, asserted abolition of the veto would wreck Ihe United Na- tions, and demanded a U. N. re- port on American and British troops in foreign lands. Capping 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 lo date. ALVA.
