ADA, OKLAHOMA, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1946 County Vote Maybe High Registration, Campaign Intensity Indicate Interest In Election Outcoma Tuesday, Nov. 5, is election day and the voters, who have been on the receiving end of weeks of intensive campaigning by press, radio and personal contact, will hand in their verdict. Pontotoc county is expected to turn in a fairly heavy vote and if so will be boosting the state democratic ticket with some of the strong support being sought from the firmly democratic southern part of the state. Campaigning by school people and P-TA groups for a favorable vote on four school amendments is also building toward a gooc turnout. The Ada News plans —the weather permitting—to announce by loudspeaker at the News office election returns from Pontotoc county precincts but precinct and cumulative total, anc state election news compiled by the Associated Press. J. E. Boswell, county registrar, reports registration has been somewhat heavier than he had anticipated, after the earlier periods this year. Registration ended Oct. 25 except for transfers, which can be made up to and including elec tion day. Noisy State Campaign To End Tuesday Democrats and Republicans Predicting Sweeping Victories Nov. 5 Milk Situation Is Problem—Supply, Grading Involved The milk situation in Ada again presents a problem to city and county officials, distributors and the consuming public,* and the biggest problem is faced by the public that daily consumes hundreds of gallons of milk. Men present at a Saturday meeting spoke frankly on the subject and the problems at hand were discussed in an outspoken manner that is expected to help get to the bottom of the situation. We of the health department are not at all satisfied with the milk products being distributed in Ada." Burl Poe, county sanitarian, told a group. Grade A Production Drops The production of Grade A milk for consumption in Ada has been cut to more than one-half during the past month and thus the distributors are faced with the problem of having to either find more producers of Grade A milk or start bottling some Grade C milk to be sold to the public. Glen Boley, manager of the Steffens plant, said that production had dropped almost half during the past month and the milk shortage has not really started. The distributors explained their situation by saying that Grade C milk sells for a higher price than they can pay for Grade A milk because Grade C milk is being purchased to be used to make cheese. It was pointed out at the meeting by one of the distributors that the public becomes worried about using Grade C milk, but give frozen food little or no thought and there is not city or state law governing frozen foods. Poe told the men that one distributor had been obtaining milk JJP* One Killed When (ar, Truck (rash OKEMAH, Okla „ Nov. 2.—, —William Henry Williams, 46, of Fort Smith, Ark., was killed and four other members of his family were injured, one critically, in an automobile-truck collision near here today.

Ada News Want Ads. Search Pushed For Bodies of Fliers Hostile Natives, Monsoons Hamper Search for 1,376 In Asian Jungles By EDWARD E. BOMAR WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.—(ZP)_ Hostile natives and monsoons are hampering the search for the bodies of 1,378 American fliers missing in southeast Asian jungles, the wrar department reported tonight, but efforts to find them are to be resumed on a larger scale. An American search party accompanied by a French military escort of six soldiers was ambushed in French Indo-China Aug. 16 by some 40 hostile anna-mites and forced to turn back. The group was seeking the remains of seven naval airmen who escaped to the hills after their plane crashed hut subsequently were ambushed by Japanese and Annamites. Other reports to Maj. Gen.

Engaged against each other in the race for governor were two men whose sole previous political experience had been on a local plane. The candidates are Roy J. Turner, Oklahoma City, Democrat, and Olney F. Flynn, Tulsa, republican. Turner was for seven years a member of the Oklahoma City school board, and part of the time its president. Flynn formerly was mayor of Tuisa. Both Are Oil Men Both are oil men, and Turner has gained prominence through his prize Hereford cattle grown on his ranch near Sulphur. Flynn has assailed democratic manage—ent of state affairs through 40 years of Oklahoma history — the republicans have never elected a governor—and promised reforms in administration of highways, schools and other departments of government. He also has urged Oklahomans to vote republican in order to register their disapproval of national administration policy, particularly in the matter of government controls. Turner’s rejoinder to Flynn’s pleas has been the declaration that republicans have offered no program other than one of negation. He has offered a highway reorganization plan, supported proposals for tax adjustment, urged measures to attract industry, and recommend a permanent school financing program. While he urged the removal of meat price controls, he has stood generally for democratic national policy, although contending that national affairs have no place in the state campaign. Both Sides Confident Both sides today forecast they w * n broad margins. COP State Chairman Carl Morgan forecast that Flynn would win by 25,000 votes, and possibly by 65,000 to 75,000 should a national republican landslide develop Tuesday. Democratic sources predicted winning margins for Turner ranging from 50,000 to 100.000. Both sides also expressed confidence that they would gain congressional seats in Oklahoma where, in the absence of a U. S. senatorial race, the house contests were also drawing major attention. Hardest fought of the races is that between Democratic Rep. Mike Monroney and Carmon C. Harris, Oklahoma City, young republican attorney and war veteran, in the fifth district. Attention is also centered on the first district, where Republican Rep. George B. Schwabe is opposed by Tulsa District Judge Gras A. Shaw, democrat. Schwabe narrowly won the race two years ago, and the democrats hope to swing the tide back their way this time* Democ. ,.ts are concentrating on the eighth district in an effort to u-seat Republican Rep. Ross Riz-ley. The incumbent congressman is opposed by Tom Hieronymus, war veteran and former assistant U. S. district attorney. Both After Congress Seats Other races have attracted less attention. Democratic Rep. W. G. Stigler is opposed by Fred P. Snider, Muskogee attorney, in the second district. Nominees in other ?i St !*i cts are: Third—Carl Albert, j laster attorney, democrat, and Eleanor L. Watson, Ardmore housewife, republican; fourth _ Glen D. Johnson, Okemah attorney, democrat, and Pfjny S. Frye, Wewoka attorney, republican; sixth—District Judge Toby Morns, Lawton, democrat, and Joe Hart, Jr., Chickasha manufacturer, republican; seventh—Preston E. Peden, Altus attorney, democrat and J. Warren White, Hollis publisher, republican. Morgan predicted that the republicans would carry a minimum of three districts—the first, fifth and eighth—and possibly the second, four and sixth as well. Democrats claim certain victory in seven districts and express optimism that the eighth district W! a i re * urn their column too. Almost lost in the shuffle are the races for the secondary state nffiZ'ZKc     i    _ FIVE CENTS THE COPY Egypt, Argentina Critical Of U.N. Council Rejection Of Five Nations I Russia Fails To Block Talk Soaking Rain Ends Droughl Pontotoc County Gats First Real Rain in More Than Two Months This Is Going to Be Changed Soon We weren’t exactly surprised, having lived a long time with Oklahoma weather, but the rain that fell Saturday came in a way that completely reversed a forecast of fair for the day. Enough rain fell Saturday morning to give this county its first soaking since late August, breaking a drought of more than nine weeks. Enough showers fell before daybreak to account for .28 of an inch and to herald the heavy series of rains that throughout the morning were interspersed with lighter showers and that added 1.23 inches for a total of 1.51 inches. Two Months Were Dry It was on August 26 that Ada had a really heavy downpour, 3.87 inches of rain, and the next day contributed 1.20 for a total of 5.07. But September let the area down, scattered .95 of an inch over its 30 days, and October was even less considerated, registering .29 of an inch. The soaker of Saturday was welcomed generally, for pastures, for making possible some belated planting of winter crops, but cannot make up for the damage done during more than two months of scarcity. Some More Rain Due According to the Associated Press, more rainfall was forecast for the entire state Saturday night and in the south and east portions Sunday. The forecast also called for colder weather, except in the panhandle, with strong winds in the central and east portions of the state Sunday. Heaviest rainfall was reported Saturday in the eastern part, ranging up to 3.40 at McAlester. Other totals included Kingfisher 1.08, Ponca City 1.07. Enid 1.17.

He led officers to his car where he produced a satchel containing $5,040.     R Joseph Hixon, arrested Sept. 73 at Electra, Texas, was arraigned here last w’eek on an indictment charging him with the $33,000 bank robbery and is held under $50,000 bond. The brothers are from Electra. State and federal officers today continued their questioning of James Hixon at Antlers, seeking to learn what happened to the nearly $20,000 of bank loot still unaccounted for. ---|i——  .

With tears of gratitude trickling down their cheeks, and some even bending to kiss American soil, 48 happy Estonian refuges today received the news that President Truman would allow them to remain in this country.

Taxpaying Time Here, First Half Delinquent on January I Collection of ad valorem taxes started Friday morning at the county treasurer’s office and the amount to be collected is $571 -054.07 or $24,357.66 more than last year. Tax roles were prepared by the county assessor’s office; work started early in March and it was only last week that work was completed. The increase denotes an increase in valuation rather than the tax rate in and all other bears a rate of $48,125. Increase At Stonewall The one big increase in taxes Connolly Insists on Right Of Open Discussion Of Council's Actions Bv MAX HARRELSON LAKE SUCCESS, N Y —(/I*)—Despite strenuous of Soviet Russia to blot- „ cism of thf* United Nations st, rity council. Egypt and Argent today led a small-natsons attack on the council for rejecting the applications of Ireland. Portugal, Trans-Jordan, Albania and out ~ Mongolia for U. N. membership. The sharpest attack came from Argentine Delegate Jose Acce, who protested particularly a Rainst use of the veto on mem-* hership applications and declared that if this procedure is to be followed “it is better if the oth< r 46 nations simply folded up our papers and turned over to the five Rteat powers the solution < f our problems.’’ Committee 1 Has Explosive Issues The controversy developed at the opening meeting of the general assembly’s powerful polit aal committee, which has before t such explosive issues as the Soviet arms limitation proposals, demands for action against Franco Spain and the veto question. Australian Delegate Paul lh-luck proposed in a formal move that the security council I 4 no authority over the a I rn. s.-. of new members except to si; whether it believes the appl.cr..,. state is able and willing to carry out its obligations in so far as peace and security are concerned, i Coaxially vs] Vishinsky He proposed that a committee be named to work out rules ae-i copiable to both the assembly an I I the council laying down specif.c I requirements for membership One of the high spots in the debate was a clash between Senator Tom Connallv (D.-Tex > J* S. representative, and So n >n > I • . % vqrf this year is in the Stonewall dis- I 5* representative, and Sov * trict where the rate is the high- Representative Andrei Y.

Vishinsky insisted that th* committee had no “mandate" to criticize the council, while Con in some parts of the county, about six in all, there has been a slight increase while other sec tions of the county face some increase in the rate. Lower Rate In Ada The tax rate per $1,000 in Ada was $49,044 in 1945 and this year tut * i j lu    wa»    in    HHD and this    year Most planned to stay in    Miami    there    is a    $.919 decrease to    $48- lring the winter.    195    u;..    _______ during the winter. In a formal statement released by the White House, Mr. Truman said the refugees “will not be deported and will in due course be given immigration visas which will enable them to remain in this country." Earlier he had expressed the wish that everything be done to assure their comfort. The Estonians fled their homeland and went to Sweden when the Germans invaded and refused to return after Russia occupied their country. I* irst news of the presidential I order was carried to the Estonians by their friend and adviser, the Rev. James Loeffler. “The fight is over," he cried as he reached the group busily at work on their three boats. They gatehered about him as he told of Mr. Truman’s taction, and then broke into wild re-j pieing. Many cried and several 125. The big difference is reflected in homestead exemptions. Homestead exemptions in Ada as a whole decreased from $10 05 per $1,000 in 1945 to $9,103 this year while the homestead exemption in most county school districts is $1.04 per $1,000. All property in Ada that is coveted by homestead exemption t Mwwni uecomes nennquen has a rate of $9,163 per $1,000 I stead of just the first half.
