Hostile natives and monsoons are hampering the search for the bodies of American fliers missing in southeast Asian jun- gles, the war department report- ed tonight, but efforts to find them are to be resumed on a larger scale. An American search party ac- co.njxmied by a French military escort of six soldiers was am- bushed in French Indo-China Aug. 16 by some 40 hostile anna- mitos and forced to turn back. The group was seeking tho re- mains of seven naval airmen who escaped to the hills after their plane crashed but subsequently were ambushed by Japanese and Anna mites. Other reports to Maj. Gen.

Turner was for seven years a member of the Oklahoma City school board, and part of: the time its president. Flynn for- merly was mayor: of Tulsa. Both Arc 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 oil state affairs through 40 years oT Oklahoma history the republicans have never elected a promised reforms in administra- tion of highways, schools and other departments of govern- ment. He also has urged Okla- homans to vote republican in order to register their disapproval of national administration policy, particularly in the matter of gov- ernment controls. Turner's rejoinder to Flynn's pleas has been the declaration that republicans have offered no program other than one of nega- tic.i. He has offered a highway re- organization plan, supported pro- posals for tax adjustment, measures to attract industry, and recommend a permanent school financing program. While he urged the removal of meat price :ontrols, he has stood generally :or democratic national policy, 'al- :hough contending that national dffairs have no place in the state campaign. Both Sides Confident Both sides today forecast they would win by broad margins. GOP State Chairman Carl Mor- gan forecast that Flynn would win by votes, and possibly by to should a na- tional republican landslide de- velop Tuesday. Democratic sources predicted winning margins for Turner rang- ing from to Both sides also expressed con- fidence that they would gain con- gressional .seats in Oklahoma where, in the absence of a U. S. senatorial race, the house .con- tests were also drawing major attention. Hardest fought of the races is that between Democratic Rep. Mike Monroney and Cannon C. Harris, Oklahoma City, young re- publican attorney and war veter- an, in the fifth district. AUention is also centered on the first district, where Republi- can Rep. George B.

Schwabe narrowly won the race two years ago, and the democrats hope to swing the tide back their way this time.. are concentrating on the eighth district in an effort to unseat 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.

Most planned to stay in Miami during the winter. In a formal statement released by the White House, Mr. Truman said the refugees "will not be de- ported 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 Es- tonians fled their homeland, and went to Sweden when the Ger- mans invaded and refused to re- turn after Russia occupied their country. 'First news of the presidential order was carried to the Estonians by their friend and adviser, the Rev. James Loeffler.

The department estimated the condition of Oklahoma wheat at 8V per cent or normal compared with 71 per cent a year ago. The condition of the state cot- ton crop was reported un- changed from a month ago when it was 64 per cent of normal. Cot- tor production is estimalcd' at bales.
