DfW itt in Bold Picture  The facts pointed out by DeWitt were so bold and well put that many of those men attending reached for their note books and took notes on the address delivered by the Michigan professor.  He presented facts along with some sound reasoning when he told of industries what might be had in Oklahoma and particularly this section of Oklahoma where almost any mineral raw materials a:e available in abundant quan-t t es.  In the past your geological survey s interest has been centered en oil and more oil. Oil is still the lifeblood of your economy: but with decreasing oil production. that interest has spread to other fields—your mineral resources ” Dewitt said as he spoke primarily to Oklahomans.  The topic of the address de-i ; cered by De Witt was “Chemical I tilization of Raw Materials,” which he explained thoroughly from Beginning to end and covered a.most every mineral found in this area that might be used by industry.

Nov. 8.  Kalherene Manton today ^. as  appointed secretary of state of Oklahoma succeeding Frank  Carter, who resigned because of failing health and advanced age.  Miss Manton thus becomes toe first woman secretary of state in the history of Oklahima.  She was assistant secretary under Carter, who resigned yesterday at the age of 84.  Her appointment was urged by Carter when he submitted his resignation to Gov. Robert S. Kerr but legal difficulties arose and the governor asked Williamson for an opinion.  The attorney general was asked to ascertain whether, since the general election is past, it was mandatory upon him to appoint Cartwright, who apparently was elected to the post for a term beginning in January.  Williamson said he would rule that Cartwright will not be officially elected until the legislature convenes in January to canvass the returns.  Erie P. Halliburton, newly elected president of the organization, was one of the principal speakers at the noon luncheon Thursday and used as his subject Minerals in Oklahoma’s Industrial Future.”  In bringing out his point of how to prepare now for the fu JJE 6 *. Halliburton asserted that Oklahoma s mineral reserves are enormous.  Coal reserves, for example. are estimated at 55 billion tons; natural gas, over nine and a half trillion cubic feet, gypsum, 125  J 1 *?? J 0 . 1 ? 8 ’  More than  five and J naif billion barrels of oil have been produced from Oklahoma’s wells, and geologists predict that still greater deposits are yet to be tapped within the state’s border.  No Dispute Over Resources  “No one will deny that Oklahoma is abundant in natural resources. No one will dispute the tact that Oklahoma’s mineral and industrial development has been phenomenal. And no one will deny that Oklahoma will play an increasingly important role in the industrial world .... IF we pepetuate our American Way of Life,” Halliburton stated.  He pointed out that natural resources alone do not explain the wealth of Oklahoma any more than they explain the wealth of America, the richest country in the world.  To make the points of his talk stay on as standing facts, Halliburton told the story about two islands that are no larger than a single Oklahoma county, yet millions of dollars are invested/ in industries. *  Halliburton assured the listening group that things that require no mental or physical effort have little or no value. Finances Have Part Eugene McElvanev, vice pres-j dent - First National bank Dal-as. Texas, spoke at the noon luncheon on “Financing Industries rn the Southwest” or how finance will increase the developments of numerous natural resources.  Beating home a trip-hammer delivery, McEl-vaney said that industries are started when a man with an idea convinces a man with the money that the idea backed by money I will make a profit.  “Speed, volume, delivery!”  I was given by McElvaney as the method in which things worked during the war and added that the demands for certain processed materials are just a great as ever, but the producer is going to have to go to the consumer instead of the consumer going to the industry.  “Business talent and ability, like character, are challenged and developed and strengthened  by adversity and tough going_  by competition.” the bank president said.  Mr. Dott of the Geological Survey explained to the group in his afternoon talk, accompanied by a picture camera that enabled him to give chalk talks, that the well-being of the people of a region or nation is dependent upon many types of resources—natural resources including climate, geographic location, water, agricultural, mineral, and fuel resources including climate, geographic location, water, agricultural, mineral, and fuel resources are basic necessities with which to work.  It was explained by the head of the survey that many types of minerals are available in this area that will not be worth while or productive until man makes use of them.

ARROWSMITH  WASHINGTON. Nov Jl™ The administration is getting ready to junk virtually all remaining price and wage controls  ™?? d ^ ^  learned toda Y that OPA Chief Paul Porter plans to resign.  Only a final okay from President Truman was reported necessary to strip away all remaining price ceilings except those on rents, sugar, syrups and rice.  Many other wartime controls such as those on wages are expected to disappear at the same time.  Porter For Quick Friends of Porter said he hopes the White House decision “would come quickly.”  They added that as soon as it it jounced Porter will go to ♦ u    House for a private  talk with President Truman and offer his resignation.  Porter was drafted from the chairmanship of the Federal Communications Commissi on early in the war to serve in a number of key agencies. He took over the OPA when former Administrator Chester Bowles resigned last June.  Truman Near Ruling  Friends of Porter said he had teen Pressing for a clarification of White House policy on remaining price lids ever since President Truman yanked the ceiling from meats and livestock on Oct. 14.  One high government official told a reporter that Mr. Truman will make a final ruling in a day or so and probably announce it next week.  The concensus among agency officials who have been conferring the last two weeks with Reconversion Director John R Stedman is that the time has come to junk nearly all of the control program, except for rents and sugar.  There is some opposition to this, notably on the part of housing Administrator Wilson W. Wyatt, but he and others who have favored a go-slow policy re-  Herd, Form Partnership With Jack Smith, Manager of Lazy-D  Program Arranged For Armistice Day Observance Here  U. S.

(ease Fire Order To Chinese Troops  NANKING, Nov. 8. — (ZP) — Chian!; Kai-Shek tonight announced he had issued orders to all government troops to cease fire, except as necessary to de-i d their  P reser *t positions.  Tho truce order was designed to eliminate the communists’ principal argument against participating in the national assembly, scheduled to open Tuesday to revise China’s constitution.  I- was issued as Chiang’s troops had crushed communist opposition m much of China and found them victoriously encircling Rus-s.an-occupied Dairen, fighting bitterly to capture Chefoo and Stantung province and approaching Amtung on the Manchuria-Korean border.  There was no immediate indication how long it would take Chiangs order to become effects? on the farflung battlefields.  The truce was a last-minute effort to insure all party representation at the assembly and came after weeks of hopeless deadlock as the communists refused to ne-goti.' on the government’s teems.  The truce order followed a prolonged meeting at noon of National Assembly delegates. Chiang a dressed them briefly  part in uniform—there will be a program at the McSwain theater at 10:45.  The principal speaker will be Charles F. Spencer, mayor and himself a navy veteran of World War II. The public is invited to attend the program.  Assisting in the program will be Rev. Mitchell S. Epperson. First Presbyterian church pastor: John Roy Harris, pastor’s associate. First Baptist church and War I veteran; the College Concert Singers. Gold Star Mothers will be introduced and given special honor.  They'll Be Sorry, Awn Jim Farley  Says Republicans Will  Wish They # d Never Won Control of Sonata  W. A. Delaney. Jr.. will sell his famous Hereford show herd at his January 4 auction at the Lazy D ranch—but he isn t going out of the Hereford business.  After the sale he will form a cattle partnership with Jack Smith, who has been manager of the Lazy D ranch for several years.  It is estimated that the registered cattle of the Lazy D herd have a value of about $500,000.  Delaney has given this reason for the sale and subsequent partnership with Smith:  “I give him full credit for developing my herd. Any man ‘bat has his capacity and his capabilities should be rewarded with more than a salary. He is entitled to the price of ownership.”  There will be notable animals offered in the January sale. Am-ing them are a full brother, sister and sire of Del Zento I. for whom George Rodanze of Stottville. Canada, last January paid the then world’s record price of $51,000 for a Hereford bull.  The sire. Beau Zento 54th. is among the top ranking herd sires of the nation.  The sale last January averaged $2,190 per head for 45 animals.  Delaney’s 5.000 acre ranch southwest of Ada is valued at more than $200,000.  Since he became interested in the purebred Hereford line in 1939, Delaney has sold more than $350,000 worth of cattle.  (Ny Receives KIO Men Waler Meiers  Will Bo Installed to Repine* Older Faulty Ones  BANGKOK. Siam, Nov. 8.—(ZP) —Jame. A. Farley says the republicans will wish they had never won control of the United States Senate after they begin tackling some of the problems facing that body.  The former Democratic Nation a1 chairman and postmaster general, commenting on the election results ups n his arrival at Bangkok airfield last night from Calcutta. predicted that the GOP would encounter problems which w° u ;d give the party trouble in the 194P presidential election. He said prominent republicans had admitted to hi - that th-y C ’ not \ art a senate majority.  He declared it was “silly” for Sen. r J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark) to sugges that President Truman resign in view of the GOP’s having won majorities in both houses of congress in Tuesday’s election  W. E. Hansen, city manager, reported Friday morning that the city received 300 water meters Thursday. The meters are badly r eded in certain sections of the city where the old meters are becoming faulty, and the new meters will be installed wherever the are needed.  T’ v are scheduled to be installed within a period of 180 days from the day their were received.  The new meters were purchased for $13.40 each, considerably lower than the estimated cost and at a cost lower than any since before the war.  U. S. Warships To Visit Turkish And Greek Ports Soon  Et ELTON C. FAY  ' ASHINGTON, Nov. 8.—(ZP)_  United States warships, making their third excursion into the politically troubled waters of the Eastern Mediterranean, will visit bo*h Turkish and Greek ports in the next few weeks.  -he navy announced today that arrangements have been complete by the state department for L. S. Naval forces now in the Mediterranean, or en route there. to make visits to various ports incident to training exercises during the latter part of November and early December.”  It was learned that both Secretary of State Byrnes and Under Secretary Dean Acheson had okayed the cruise.  Decision Not Explained  State department officials, however, could shed no light on why they gave the warships the green make calls virtually in the back yard of the Soviet Union only a few days after the department had asked the army to postpone a projected round-the-world flight by a fleet of B-29 Superfort bombers.  Although it never has been officially acknowledged that the state department caused postponement of the B-29 Venture, of-fie...Is close to Byrnes said he was opposed to the flight at this time, partially because he was afraid it might be interpreted by Russ’a. and other nations as “sword rattling.”  Route Outlined Today s navy announcement said the 27,OOO-ton aircraft carrier Randolph, the light cruiser Fargo and the destroyer Perry will put in at the Turkish# ports of Izmir and Marinaras. Izmir. ai the eastern end of the Mediterranean, was formerly named Smyrna. F om the Turkish harbors the ships will go to Beirut, Lebanon, and then turn northwestward to visit Piraeus, Greece.

Johnson would call for the blanket entry of all five. including Soviet-sponsored Albania and outer Mongolia.  Would Trade Vetoes  If under that situation Russia should persist in vetoing the admission of Portugal. Ireland and Trans-Jordan, it was anticipated that the United States then would return to its policy of voting against Albania and outer Mongolia individually. Both those countries failed to muster the necessary seven of the eleven council votes in the initial discussions.  On the Spanish question the United States delegation merely decided to adhere to its stand for condemnation of the Madrid government but in opposition to any action such as a worldwide break in relations.  Franco Issue Up Again  Members of the United States delegation meanwhile were reported still working on a proposal concerning the much-debated question of the veto, but no concrete plan was anticipated before next week.  Poland originally asked for* severance if diplomatic relations with the Franco government and White Russia followed tnt* yesterday with a demand that the membership institute economic sanctions against Madrid, including the suspension of communications by rail, sea, air. post and telegraph.
