The manufacturing concern will produce marine plywood fishing boats, merchandise display fixtures, furniture, and a variety of other wood products.  The greying concern started as a hobby in Pennington’s garage with a few power tools. Later the. veteran woodwork specialist. Ed Canterbury, then employed by i* S.

The construction has been approved already by the CPA, Pen-n.r.gton said Thursday.  When Canterbury and Pennington first were getting started with their furniture manufacture, some men locally connected with a furniture sales corporation covering several states suggested marketing the pieces on a big scale. The furniture designs were so well received that it soon became apparent to the two that more space was necessary.

Plan Assembly Line In the new building an assembl line will be set up with cut-t np. finishing rooms, offices, etc.  Mechanics will be paid well in the new enterprise, Pennington stressed, adding they wanted to see Ada prosper.” and expressing a desire to help in every worthy civic project.  Canterbury spoke briefly, first saying that his relations with H. S Moore were “very pleasant and satisfactory through the vears.” I: was largely through Moore’s generosity in allowing him necessary time to get started that the - cat-Craft partnership was able be launched as it was, Canterbury related.  Canterbury Making Furniture ^ The craftsman emphasized that noats were not the only product to come from the Neat-Craft p.ant. saying that the production cf furniture would continue and that a complete shop for making modern store fixtures would be set up.  Some sets of fixtures have already been manufactured and installed in Ada businesses. Canterbury disclosed. He said it had always been a “special desire” to produce fine fixtures.  Blinds C ompany to Expand Can un Bates, who has just started the Southwest Venetian Blind Co. at 130 East 10th. said that three types of blinds are aliency available and he is waiting only on more machinery to increase production. Bates is a veteran and one of Ada’s newest businessmen.  A.so. Bates has been appointed cna.rman of the Pontotoc County LSO drive, and he made a plea -or cooperation in raising the  way or the other.  Possible platform appearances at St. Louis (ll a.m., EST), Jef-ferson City (1:50 p.m., EST), and Sedalia (2:45 p.m., EST), offered Mr. Truman an opportunity for extemporaneous speeches on behalf of the party's candidates.  But all presidential Press Secretary Charles G. Ross would say was that the president might wave at bystanders who showed up at St. Louis and that he plan- ed  shake hands with some state officials at Jefferson City, the state capital.  Ross said there were no plans for the president to make any nationwide appeal for the democratic ticket.  At least one member of the pi esidential party, house Speaker  k -am Rayburn of Texas, was still w f orking hard on the campaign.  He is scheduled to make an adds ess tonight at a democratic rally in Independence. Mr. Truman however, will not be there. He will be visiting his mother. Mrs. Martha E. Truman, and his sister. Miss Mary Jane Truman, at Grandview'.  Mr. and Mrs. Truman had dinner on the train last night with ^yburn, special Counsel Clark M. Clifford and Mrs. Clifford, Mr. and Mrs. Ross and Presidential Secretary Matthew J. Connelly  The train was due in Independence at 4:30 p.m., (EST).  r   The president and Mrs. Truman will leave for Washington after voting Tuesday, arriving back at the capital on Wednesday.

McAlester. Okla., Nov. I — CP—A career of crime started 12 \eais ago with chicken stealing ended shortly after midnight today when Mose Johnson, 34, was electrocuted for the murder of a feJow convict. L. C. Smalley, at the state penitentiary here.  “I have no* bad feelings and am prepared to go,” Johnson told a small group of witnesses to the execution shortly before he was strapped into the electric chair *  T /l e  electricity  was  turned on at l-:07 a.m. and a minute later he was pronounced dead by Dr A R. Strough of McAlester.  Johnson ate a hearty last meal which included chicken, ice ciearn and soda pop, after being visited by his sister and brother-in-law. Mr. and Mrs. George Perry of Stigler.

Haifa Scene of New Disorders, Migrant Vessel Is Saved  By CARTER L. DAVIDSON  JERUSALEM, Nov. I, <.P)_ Rigid security restrictions were clamped* on all Haifa today as 1,200 Jewish refugees were transferred from a dangerously listing immigrant ship to two British vessels for deportation to Cyprus.  Two thousand Jews, leaving a Haifa mass meeting which protested further deportations, marched on British street barricades toward signs in Hebrew and English reading “disperse or we fire.” They dispersed after singing nationalist songs.  Meanwhile, the Palestine Arab army Futuwah was summoned for a parade and mass meeting in Nablus, 33 miles north of Jerusalem, and some Arabs pictured this as a “show' of strength.”  Haifa’s 60,000 Jews were idle from 8:30 to ll a. rn. in a general protest strike. They held a mass meeting on Hadar Hacar-mel as the immigrant ship, apparently lashed to two minesweepers, appeared in the harbor.  The British army meanwhile counted a three-day toll of five soldiers’ lives. Two were kilted last night and two others were wounded critically near the all-Jewish city of Tel Aviv when their truck hit a road mine.  The inner Zionist council and the Jewish national council joined in denouncing methods of underground Jewish extremists. One of the underground groups, Irgun Zvai Leumi, broadcast a declaration that it was prepared to fight both the British and any Jewish organization which attempted to interfere with it.  Off Haifa, the immigrant vessel, identified as the San Dimi-trio but called in the Hebrew the Latrun, after the Palestine detention camp, listed so .badly part of her keel paint could be seen.  . All the port area was under a rigid curfew and the security regulations were so strict that even customs, health and immigration officials were barred from their offices.  Rent Control Office Opens In Ada Today  Already Registering Landlord Rental Units, Giving Out Information  The Ada area rent control office opened Friday morning in Room 8, Norris-Haney building. and immediately got down to business, both with registration and with information for landlords.  Although formal date for beginning of registration by landlords of their rental units is set for November 15, the office is already taking such registration.  H. W. Crawford, in charge of the three-county office, explains that as the office will be handling registrations from Garvin, Seminole and Pontotoc counties, the more that can be taken care of now, the less will be the rush beginning in mid-March.  This, he points out, will benefit both the office force and the people who have rental units.  The offices of the refit control administration ar© roached by going up the stairway between Rollow Hardware and Hensler Drug stores and then going down the right corridor.   * -  Halloween Passes Most Pleasantly For Old and Young  Its been many a day since Ada youngsters had as much fun on Hallowe’en as they did Thursday and Thursday night, and since the police have had as little trouble. Even the weather cooperated with mild conditions, not like sometimes prevails to cut down the number who can get out and about.  Hallowe en was spoiled for six negro lads, however. Police caught them in the traditional stunt of pushing over Chic Sales outbuildings, ordered the boys to set the structures back where they belonged, and this they did in complete reversal of standard celebration.  “Tricks Or Treats**  “Treats or tricks” was the most asked question while “Hallowe’en handout” ran a close second, and it was seldom that the would be pranksters failed to get something.  When youngsters were refused treats, they didn’t know exactly what steps to take next, but generally it was some type of clean fun that didn't do any damage to property.  Gaily colored costumes could be seen in almost any direction. Many of these had been worn to parties while t h e remainder dressed just for the ‘prowling.’ Even Older Youths Take Part More than a dozen parties kept hundreds of children busy - during the early part of the night, or at least until bedtime.  It has been rare for high schoolers to celebrate the occasion, but there w’ere a few such groups out last night having as much fun as the younger set of celebraters.  Ada residents could not expect anything as large as the Thursday night affair to go over in a more orderly and pleasant manner, police said.  Several hundred persons, young and old, attended at party at the McSwain theater, the largest party in Ada.  OPA Ordering Local Price Boards ’Out’  Lock Up for Koops Monday# Mony Field Workers Being Dropped as Decon- • fro! Expands  By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON  WASHINGTON, Nov. I, Lf*)— Price controls were lifted from nearly IOO more items today as OPA took on the appearance of a skeleton left over from Halloween.  The new list included paper and wood matches, milking machines and other dairy equipment, some lighting fixtures, a few lumber items, and a long line of industrial products.  It was issued as the price agency took sweeping action toward decontrolling itself along with the national economy.

Miss Marvanelle Poe, chief clerk who has been in charge of the office for several months, has turned in her resignation effective Monday morning. She will be replaced by Mrs. Jewell Dyer, who has been employed by the office for a number of months.  Another employee, Mrs. Lucille Blackburn, has resigned and is now connected with the Rent Control Board.

I.—(ZP) —Vice Admiral Aubrey W. Fitch superintendent of the naval academy, gave as his “personal conviction” last night that the academy will be moved from Annap-? ... unless “proper” aviation facilities can be set up close at hand.  Addressing a “Navy Night” dinner of the Annapoiis'Rotary club, Fitch said he was expressing his personal opinion and not necessarily the policy of the navy department. “If adequate aviation facilities are not provided at the naval academy in ‘the near fu-V ur ** h? declared, “the academy itself will be moved to some location where such facilities can be made available.

Nowadays they guess who's behind it.  Two ‘teen age boys, arrested in New Mexico by the FBI, have been returned to Ada where they will face charges of larceny of an automobile. County Judge W. G. Long said Friday morning.  The boys are alleged to have stolen an automobile from its parking place at Norris stadium on the night of the Ada-Wewoka football game.  The boys were released from jail after a $500 bond was made   ,iuun  lOdi  The case will be heard in juv- field forced enile court with Judge Long    *    ‘  presiding.

Even more immediately, OPA oidered its last local price boards, 1,642 of them, locked up for good on Monday.  Supply Meets Demand Today’s decontrol announcement said the latest list of articles was freed “because their supply "is in approximate balance with demand, or because they are unimportant in business or living costs.”  Farm dairy machinery freed from controls included churns ice-refrigerated milk coolers’ and cream separators.  Other machinery items released included certain gasoline and engines and some pumps. The lighting equipment on the list included incandescent fixtures for industrial and commercial use except fluorescent fixtures.  Among lumber items decontrolled were red wood lumber used for cigar boxes, walnut lumber and walnut gumstock blanks.  Metal products on the list were fluid milk shipping containers and w'ire reinforcing for use in concrete. School and passenger bus bodies and parts also went on the free list.  Agency officials said the twin moves will save $10,000,000 in salaries, rentals and other expenses that otherwise would have run on until OPA itself died by law next June 30.  OPA Chief Paul Porter in announcing the retrenchment program on the heels of scores of decontrol actions declared that “the government is handing most of the price control job back to American citizens.”  “If citizens work as their neighbors worked on local boards,” he added, “we can prevent disastrous inflation during this period when production of goods is steadily increasing to supply unfulfilled demands.”  Buyer Resistance Has Effect The bureau of labor statistics reported meanwhile that wholesale food prices dropped an average of 3.2 percent in the week ended last Saturday compared with the previous week—chiefly because of buyer resistance to high prices of meat, butter and lard, the bureau said.  4^°Y^ e y er * food index was still 49.8 percent higher than on June 30. y’ -rn OPA controls were temporarily suspended, and 60.3 per cent above the corresponding week last year.  Porter had planned to announce the closing of local boards and dismissal of their paid clerks at noon today, but leaks in the field forced the announcement late yesterday.  At the wartime peak of 1945, there were 5,661 local price and ration boards with 125.000 members ann M0.000 additional volunteer workers.  OPA Staff Dwindling With the 10,000 reduction in personnel, OPA’s staff will drop to about 24,000 persons, with many of these slated for dismissal as decontrol continues.  ^ a test additions to the decontrol, list are a number of textile items classed as notions, including collars, cuffs and neckbands for mens shirts: trouser and coat pockets: button hole banding and button hole tabs; knitted cuffs, waistbands and collars.

Vandenberg (R-Mich.) today sharply attacked the proposed United Nations budgetary plans with the flat assertion that the United States was no it ready to pay 50 per cent of the administrative costs as suggested.  Vandenberg, a United States delegate to the UN. leveled h.s broadside at the whole financial setup as the General Assembly split up into 51-nation committees to begin the task of debating more than 50 items on a crowded agenda.  Coupling his stand with a strong appeal for economy, Vandenberg told the financial committee that the United Stat es felt that the capacity-to-pay yards lek advanced by the U.
