On Monday before the confer- ence storied Thursday, there were less than 50 reservations made for persons expecting to attend the affair lasl year an'd on the same day this year the number of res- ervations is in excess of 80. Chamber of Commerce officials report that, they arc having less trouble selling Ada citizens on the project this year than they had last year, which offers much encouragement to those making preparation for the conference. Ada.citizens are being inviled to attend one or all of the ses- sions of the conference. Each ses- sion and each talk will bo educa- tional from the standpoint of learning about the natural re- sources available in this area. Among Ibosc who have made reservations are L. W.

Just Gel Snow Geese, As Trio From Ada Did Hunters, have been told time and time again already this year that cluck season is open, but few of them gave any thought to the fact that there will bo some geese flying also, one'group hunters has already made quite a killing. Dr. J. R. Chandler, professor at East Central, accompanied by his son, Dr. Roscoe Chandler, who is a navy doctor, and Mrs. Roscoe. Chandler, saw a number of snow geese 'clown' in a corn field near Calvin Sunday. Taking all the necessary pre- cautions, the trio advanced to within shooting distance and fired on the geese. Four of the six geese brought rcau said will range from the up- back to Ada were killed, and the per in Ihe northern section ol-nei' lwo were knocked clown. to the upper 40's in the southern. The panhandle apparently re- ceived thorough soaking, as did most of the northwest corner of the slate.

After a long chuse the two live geese were caught. Other A.da hunters were some- what surprised Monday morning to learn that snow geese were killed in this area as they seldom stop in this section, and it is usually much colder than it was Sunday when they do light. Friends of the hunters report that the geese weighed six to sev- en pounds each'and. were in good condition.

Death Of Rogers' Wife Fell Here Popular Singing Star Of Westerns Was In Ada Only Last Wednesday Usually the death of a person in Hollywood isn't of even pass- ing concern here but the excep- tion happened weekend. along over the Mrs. Roy Rogers, wife of the western musical movie star, died a week after giving birth by Caesarian operation to Roy Rog- ers, Jr. An embolism was given as the cause of death, after she had been recovering satisfactorily for several days. It was only last Wednesday that Rogers was in Ada to take part in the world premier show- ing of the picture "Home in Okla- homa" filmed in this area last summer with himself in one of the leading roles. He had rushed from Chicago to Hollywood from his business en- gagements to be with his wife' at the lime of the operation, then flow to this area when she ap- peared lo be all right, greeting capacity throngs at Ardmore and at two Ada theaters, obliging with songs and accompanying Dale Evans with his guitar as she sang. So there goes to Rogers, whose popularity in this area has in- creased mightily .through his personal appearances last sum- mer and last Wednesday, the sympathy of thousands of persons who feel that they have some personal acquaintance with the singing star.

Hits Truck in Rear Bedford H. Fine of Ada was traveling west behind' Williams and apparently did not see the truck stopped and ran into Ihe rear of the Williams truck, A few minutes later, John W. Oakes, Jr., of Fittstown, ap- proached the scene of the first accident driving a 1942 Nash se- dan and ran into the left side of the Williams truck before bring- ing his automobile to a slop.

Many of these same states also are among the 33 where gover- norships are at stake in this off- year election. Centers on Nine Senate Races With both major parlies mak- ing their usual last-minute vic- tory chiims. ttttenlion centered on a final republican drive to wrest nine senate seats from the democrats. Added to those which they claim already are in the bag, the nine would Rive the GOP control of the senate for Ihe first time since the new deal came into power. These seats are in New York, Massachusetts, Missouri, Idaho, Montana, Washington, West Vir- ginia, Wyoming and New Mexico. Democrats insist they, not only will win in these races, but are unwilling to concede 'that the republicans have a belter than even chance to take over in Ohio Pennsylvania, Delaware and Wisconsin. In the hope of cashing in on what many observers have called a trend against the "ins." the democrats have gone out after republican-held senate places in Kentucky and California with what they contend are fair pros- pects' of winning both. Dispute Victory Claims These 15 stales along with Illinois which has no senatorial to furnish most of the vital results in the hotly- contested races which GOP lead- ers assert will give them con- trol of the house. The demo- crats sharply dispute these vic- tory claims. In Ihe house, Ihe republicans now have members. They need lo retain all of these or cquivnlunt districts and gain 26 for the 218 which marks a clear majority. The democrats, with 235 members, could lose a net of 17 and still maintain control. There are six vacancies and two minor parties now represented among the 435 house places. In the senate, the republicans must make a proportionately larger gain of 10, since they now hold only 39 of the 96 places. David L.

Both Sides Accept Douglas Proposal In TWA Dispute By JAMES J. STREBIG WASHINGTON, Oct. Federal Mediator Frank D. Doug- las todaj' announced a tentative agreement which he said might lead to an early end of the 15-duy strike of Trans World Airline pi- lots. Douglass said opposing sides had accepted in principle his pro- posal for arbitration of wage and olher differences and arranged a meeting here this morning lo complete details. A few points remain to be clar- ified, the mediator said. When that is done he said he expects of the walkout which has halted the company's international operations and thrown other employes oul of work. This proposed agreement would provide that the pilots go- back to flying while demands for higher pay for 4-engine plane fliers and for revised working rules are submitted lo a panel whose decision would be binding. fer by telegram and also sent a letter, Douglass said, giving his interpretation of some of the points covered. Jack Frye, TWA president, also offered his interpretation of some points, the mediator said, and his two views will be reconciled in conferences. These discussions probably will be between John M. Dickerman, Washington atlorney for Ihe un- ion, and a company official. Two officials have said that some flying operations along the company's miles of roules could be starled as soon as Ihe pilots agreed to return to work, but that it would take a few days total vole would be proporlion- ale between the parlies and the outcome would nol be affecled. Both Sides Optimistic Estimates of the total vote re- mained conservative. Before the heavy snows in some guesses ranged from to and avcrnge'd around But. regardless of weather, both sides today expressed opti- mism as to the outcome of the election. In Tulsa. OIncy F. Flynn, re- publican nominee for governor, asserted, "I am sure ol election." State headquarters here added a forecast that the entire state re- publican ticket would be elect- ed. Likewise, there was no waning of confidence expressed all along by democrats that Turner and the full democratic lickcl would win by a thumping margin of from to 100.000 votes. Republicans have predicted victory by a minimum of 25.000 voles, possibly ranging up lo 000 if a landslide should deve- lop. Oratory Fills Air Turner and Flynn were com- pleting their campaigns in their home counties today. Flynn was on a tour of Tulsa county, while Turner and other democratic nominees set forth on n last-min- ute swing through Oklahoma county. The air will be filled with ora- tory tonight. Both parties plan elaborate election-eve broadcasts, featuring the final words of the nominees for governor, over state networks. Besides choosing a governor, pklahomans tomorrow will name eight congressmen, virtually a half of the slate senate and a full slate of stalehouse officials, full house of representatives.

Hildreth Many observers have calculat- ed that the election will be set- tled by the size of what has been forecast as a protest vote against the Truman administration's handling of meat and other con- trols and general dissatisfaction with the progress of reconversion from war to peace. Republicans have plu'gged this issue, along with accusing the democrats of linking themselves with communists and of permit-, ting Henry A. Wallace, former secretary of commerce, to con- fuse the handling of foreign poli- cy. Although President Truman has remained silent, democratic leaders have thrown back the communism charge at the repub- licans, have contended their op- ponents are to blame for crack- ing price controls and have as- serted that republican domina- normal.
