Aldndgo of Wcwoka was another heavier buvcr. He spent for 17 lots. Many of these consisted of older cows with calves at side. Blue Boy of Bates was the priced animal sold, but his long list of show winnings seemed to be disregarded as bid- ders traced his bloodlines back several generations. The animal was smooth in every respect, but not in as good condition as he was during the show season. The second highest priced bull sold for to C. W. Cotton, Tulsa rancher. This bull, Juan- nera Erric of Bates, was sired by an international champion. Bulls Average High The first three bulls averaged and nil 10 bulls sold av- eraged and the cheapest bull sold for Bulls went to Tulsa, Wewoko, Ada, and out of stale to Nebraska, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. The entire herd was offered in various age groupings; the best group was that of cows less than six years old. The top female was a five year old sold to a Char- lotteville, Va., rancher.

The sale started promptly at 12 noon and ended five and a half hours later. The Charles T. Bates Angus herd was one of the outstanding herds in the state before the Tuesday sale and had more prize winning animals than any other ranch that breed. U. S.

Farther south, in the Pueblo area, 64 army trucks, seven "weasels" and three bulldozers from the Pueblo ordnance depot fanned out over the storm-swept country on mercy missions. One tracked army vehicle designed for snow travel 21 miles north of Boone to bring out two children of the Dhu Wright family reported ill with influenza. Hundreds of other stranded families were contacted as the "weasels" made a family- by-family sweep of the area. Weasel Brings Expectant Mother One of the hardest-hit spots was Karval, a farm community of 30 families where Lincoln County Agent John F. Jones said the snow was "40 inches deep on the level ground." A "weasel" set out from there today with Mrs. Dick Haynes, an expectant moth- er. Although the weatlier bureau reported, representative snow depths of 10 inches in La Junta, 12 at Lamar and two at Pueblo, on the windswept plains, soil Conservation agents reported depths of 36 inches south of La Junta and 70 inches west of Pueblo. Crowley county agent said cattle losses in the Ordway area probably would not exceed three or .four percent, "but would have been much higher without this outside equipment." Will Test Equipment In Frigid Zones, Add To Scientific Knowledge Of Area By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON, Nov.'13, U The United States, aware of Russia's uneasiness over military maneuvers in the Artie, has picked the other end of the ear- th for a frigid zone test of naval ships and weapons. A navy announcement giving details of the forthcoming ex- pedition to- the Antarctic -defined it- as "primarily of a military preparatory for a pos- sible "day in the future when the 'navy may be called upon to operate in cold weather." Selection of the south Polar region for training navy person- nel and trying out ships, aircraft and other paraphernalia of mod- ern war presumably was dictat- ed, among other things, by two American desires: allay Russian worries over operations in the vicinity of Soviet territory. assure, by means of the remoteness of the area, some de- gree of secrecy for the tests. However, the expedition under the technical direction of season- ed Polar Explorer Adm. Richard E. Byrd, will not be without neighbors. British There, Too? Byrd told a news conference yesterday .that the Russians have announced an Antarctic expedi- we don't have much about it. In ad- dition, a British expedition which went into the area two years ago may still have personnel in An- tarctica. The British base, however, is miles from the probable headquarters for the navy ven- the old location'of the 1939-1941 Byrd expedition in the Ross sea, which faces toward New Zealand. Na_val officials were cautious in replying to questions. about laying formal claim-to-territory; Said Vice Admiral Forrest Sher- man, deputy chief of naval op- erations: Territorial Claims Incidental The primary purpose of the expedition is to train naval units "and any effects these operation might have on the balance of conflicting claims to territories will be incidental only." The officially stated obpectives of the four-month, 13-ship ex- pedition are: (1) training per- sonnel and testing equipment in frigid zones; (2) consolidating and developing results of the previous expedition; (3) develop- ing naval techniques for estab- lishing and supporting bases un- der polar conditions; (4) ampli- fying scientific knowledge of the area relative to ocean, georaphic. geological, weather and other conditions..

Peru counted at 100 known dead today in interior towns wrecked by earth shocks which began last Sunday and feared a higher toll might become known with restor- ation of smashed 'communications facilities. More than 60 persons were kill- i in Sihaus, a town of population which was almost completely destroyed; 30 more perished at Pomabamba and sev- eral more were reported dead at Mollcpata, a town of about said to have been about half de- stroyed. Other hard-hit cities included Mollebamba, population, still out of contact with the out- side world; Conchucos, Pampas and Palta Bueno. Reports from the interior slid the first shock, lasting 27 seconds, struck Sunday afternoon and that 52 minor shocks had been felt since that Holdenville is looking for a final conference victory, in hopes of moving into a tie for first place in the conference while the Cou- gars will be looking for their first conference victory. C. J. Powell, Holdenville men- tor and former coach of the East Central Tigers, will not have any Coach George be- cause it wasn't until Wednesday morning that an agreement was made. Coach George said that he had a light scrimmage scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, and the re- scheduling of the game will not affect the training schedule as he plans to continue with that scrimmage. Muskogee is playing Thursday night and the Ada mentor was planning to see the game as the Cougars play Muskogee next week. Principal Trice Broadrick said that the game was not re- scheduled until 11 a.m. Wednes- day. Pie said, too, that tickets to the game are ori sale at the Cor- ner Drug' and E. and M. Clothiers. Clothing Prices May Level OH Now NEW YORK, Nov. 12. Clothing prices generally will re- main at about their current levels 'unless there are sharp increases I in fabric or labor costs, manu- facturers indicated today. A possible exception is in rayon goods where an immediate in- crease in yarn prices, estimated at about 12 per cent, is expected to raise fabric costs from 15 to 25 per cent. Isadore Agree, general manager of the National Dress Manufac- turers Association, dress manufacturers want to hold to their present price lines as long as possible. As evidence of this, he said, "spring openings began a week ago, and manufacturers now are taking orders on the basis of prices established before decon- FHA Rental Housing Conference Held State Officials Explain Latest Regulations On Financing About 25 persons Tuesday night attended an FHA rental housing conference here at which most of the discussion centered on housing for veterans of World War II.

Several cracks showed up today in the time-hardened disagree- ment between Russia and the western powers over disposition of strategic Trieste, but diplomats were uncertain whether they foretold a real break-in the It.ilian pence treaty deadlock. They became apparent despite a warning by Secretary of State Eyrnes that the United States could not continue making com- promises on the Trieste issue and an assertion by Foreign Min- ister Molotov that Russia insisted on changes in some Paris Peace Conference provisions for govern- ing the Trieste territory. Molotov also raised one new dis- pute by asking a treaty pro- vision fixing a deadline of possi- bly thren or four months, the treaty becomes effective, for removal of foreign troops from Trieste. The troops there arc American and British. Byrnes and Molotov joined argu- ment repeatedly during three and hour session of the Big Four Foreign Ministers Council last night, then called a halt until 4 p.m. E.S.T. today after they ojroed, along with British For- eign Minister Bevin-nnd -Deputy French Foreign Minister Cuuve De Murville, to return their showdown debate. Diplomats who sal in on the session reported it wns by no means nil negative and had sev- eral results which might lead to a break in the main deadlock blocking competition of an Italian peace treaty.

Botlomjey told the General Assembly's Si-nation trusteeship committee that "there is no obli- gation under the charter to bring any territory under the trustee- ship system."
