The manufacturing concern will produce marine plywopc fishing boats, merchandise dis- play fixtures, furniture, and a variety of other wood products. The growing concern started as a hobbv in Penninglon's garage with a few power tools. Later tht veteran woodwork specialist, Ed Canterbury, then by ii. S.

The buiiding is to be built by Mrs. Julia Mae Smith on ,a location north of the Wickham Packing C on the O. C. A. railroad. It will be a 40x230 foot structure ii.-de of concrete blocks. The construction has been ap- proved already by the CPA, Pen- r..ngton said Thursday. When Canterbury and Pen- mngtcin first were gelling started with their furniture manufacture, so.ne men locally connected with a furniture sales corporation cov- e.-inc several stales suggested marketing the pieces on a big scale. The furniture designs were so well received that it soon be- came apparent to the two that rr.ore space was necessary. Started Boats For Own Use In the meantime, while looking for a suitable building, they made a-boats for their own use, one of them attracting considerable a'.tention. They soon realized, Pennington said, that the sales were a big problem altogether separate from production and turned over to hards-Conovcr Hardware Oklahoma City, the selling job.

Canterbury spoke briefly; firs saying tha'. his relations with H S. Moore were "very pleasant anc satisfactory through the years.' I: was largely through Moore's generosity in allowing him ncces sary time to get started that the 1 Vat-Craft partnership was able be launched as it was, Canter- bury related. Canterbury Making Furniture The craftsman emphasized that boats were not the only product to come from the Neat-Craft plant, saying that the production of furniture would continue anc that a complete shop for making modern store fixtures would be set up. Some sets of fixtures have al- ready been manufactured and in- stalled in Ada businesses, Canter- bury disclosed. He said it had al- ways been a "special desire" to produce fine fixtures.

President Playing Bystander Part In Congress Campaign By ERNEST B. VACCARO ABOARD PRESIDENT TRU MAN'S TRAIN EN ROUTE TO MISSOURI, Nov. dent Truman, still playing the lart of bystander in the congres sional election campaign, rolled along today toward his home 'own of Independence, Mo. It was certain he would parti- cipate in the eleclion to the ex- ent of casting his ballot there Tuesday, but aside from that here were no guarantees one way or the other. Possible platform appearances at St. a.m., Jef- ferson City p.m., and Sedalia p.m., offered Mr. Truman an opportunity foi extemporaneous speeches on be- half of the party's candidates. But all presidential Press Sec- rotary Charles G. Ross would say was that the president might wave at bystanders who showed up at St. Louis and that he plan- ed to shako hands with some stale officials at Jefferson City, the state capital. Ross said there were no plans for the president to make any nationwide appeal for the demo- cratic ticket. At least one member of the presidential party, house Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas, was still working hard, on the campaign. He is scheduled to make an ad- dress tonight at a democratic ral- ly in Independence. Mr. Truman, however, will not be there. He will be visiting his mother, Mrs. Martha E. Truman, and -his sis- ter. Miss Mary Jane Truman, at Grnndview. Mr. and Mrs. Truman had din- ner on the train last night with Rayburn, special Counsel Clark M. Clifford and Mrs. Clifford, Mr. and Mrs. Ross and Presidential Secretary Matthew J. Connelly.

Although formal date .for be- ginning of registration by land- lords of their rental units is set for November 15, the office is al- ready taking such registration. H. W. Crawford, in charge of the three-county office, explains that as 'the office will be handl- ing 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 bene- fit both the office' force and the people who have rental units. The offices of the reht control administration ore reached by going up the stairway between Rollow Hardware and Hensler Drug stores and then going down the right corridor. ---------------k-------------- Halloween Passes Most Pleasantly For Old and Young It's 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.

The 'boys were released from jail after a bond was made for each. night that the aca'3 emy will be moved from Annap- olis unless "proper" aviation facilities can be set up close at hand.

OPA Chief Paul Porter in an- nouncing the retrenchment pro- gram op the heels of scores of de- control actions declared that "the government is' handing most of the price control job back to American citizens." "If citizens work as their neigh- bors worked on local boards." he added, "we can prevent disas- trous inflation during this period when production of goods is steadily increasing ttr supply un- fulfilled demands." Buyer Resistance Has Effect The bureau of labor statistics reported meanwhile that whole- sale food prices dropped an ave- rage of- 3.2 percent .in the week ended last Saturday compared with the previous because of buyer resistance to high prices of meat, butter and lard, the bureau said. However, the food index was still 49.8 percent higher'than on June 30. '-'--n OPA controls were temporarily suspended, and 60.3 per cent above the corresponding week .last year. Porter had planned to an- nounce 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 local price and ration boards with mem- I bers and additional volun- j teer workers.

The pro-government Jib Pao said vanguards reached Pulan- tem. only 33 miles north of Dairen on. the border between Manchuria and Kwangtung peninsula. Their objective is to cut off the Lioa- tung Peninsula communists from the Manchurian mainland. The nationals had driven south down the Mukden-Dairen railway. Government sources previously said Gen. Tu Li-Ming's troops, fresh from capturing Antung, would not menace Dairen itself but would establish a 30-mile safely zone around that Russian- occupied open port. There were these other devel- opments: Nationals striking at Chefoo and the Shantung peninsula to cut -off the Reds' Yellow Sea route to Manchuria approached the suburbs of Yehhsien, one of the four largest ports on the northern coast, and engaged Chinese Red forces in two others. The air force, using American planes and bombs, was attempt- ing to halt communist reinforce- ments, slipping to Shantung pen- insula from' Manchuria in junks. Government and communist troops engaged in an hour's clash near the famous Marco Polo five miles west of Peip- ing. Strong national forces opened an offensive against communists massed in the Yahsien sector on the Chahar-Shansi province bor- der.
