The total amount paid for animals was SI07.000.  The weather was perfect, the Pig sa^e barn was filled to capa-city and out of state buyers were numerous.

James did not attend the sale, but Mr. Pennev  Blue Boy of Bates was the highest priced animal sold, but his long list of show winnings seemed to be disregarded as bidders 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 $2,850 to C. W. Cotton, Tulsa rancher. This bull, Juan-nera Erne of Bates, was sired by an international champion.

Many of these  consisted of older  cows with  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.  One rancher. Freeman Keys, came all the way from Danville, Ky to purchase two animals and in his opinion he purchased the best two in the sale. “If I wanted cows, I’d be buying some of those, Keys said as the various proven females entered the sale ring.  Hereford Breeders Attend  Almost every Hereford breeder in Hereford Heaven was in attendance at the sale. E. O. Ingle Mena, Ark., rancher and lumberman, was in this area looking oyer some of the animals that will be offered for sale in January and February, and spent a  c °uP le  of hours at the Bates sales.  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 of that breed.

Fair skies were forecast for today’s rescue efforts by the weather bureau which reported a foot-deep blanket of snow over most of the area four days after snow stopped falling in the weeklong blizzard which has claimed 15 lives.

Johnson Has Preferences  Johnson told a reporter his preference was Ways and Means committee as he was on the House Revenue committee when he was in the state legislature. It is difficult. however, for a new member of Congrers to obtain a membership on that committee and Johnson s next choice is Interstate Commerce.  Peden is primarily interested in obtainin' a place on the House Agriculture committee.  Johnson said he does not intend t > introduce any legislation for sev ral months.

Farther south, in the Pueblo I 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 “weasel”—a tracked army vehicle designed for snow travel —went 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  U. S. Sending Expedition To Antarctic  Will Tetf Equipment In Frigid Zones, Add To Scientific Knowledge Of Area  By ELTON C. FAY  WASHINGTON. Nov. 13, UP)— The United States, aware of Russia s uneasiness over military maneuvers in the Artic, has picked the other end of the earth for a frigid zone test of naval ships and weapons.  A navy announcement giving details of the forthcoming expedition to the Antarctic defined it as “primarily of a military nature, preparatory for a possible “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 personnel and trying out shiDs, aircraft and other paraphernalia of modern war presumably was dictated, among other things, by two American desires:  1—To allay Russian worries over operations in the vicinity of Soviet territory.  2—To assure, by means of the remoteness of the area, some degree of secrecy for the tests.  However, the expedition under the technical direction of seasoned Polar Explorer Adm. Richard E. Byrd, will not be without neighbors.  British There, Too?  Byrd told a new's conference yesterday that the Russians have announced an Antarctic expedition—“but we don’t have much information,” about it. In addition. a British expedition which went into the area two years ago may still have personnel in Antarctica.  The British base, however, is 1.500 miles from the probable headquarters for the navy venture—at the old location of the 1939-1941 Byrd expedition in the Ross sea. which faces toward New Zealand.  Naval officials were cautious in replying to questions about laying formal claim to territory. Said Vice Admiral Forrest Sherman, deputy chief of naval operations:  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 expedition are:    (I) training per  sonnel and testing equipment in frigid zones; (2) consolidating and developing results of the previous expedition; (3) developing naval techniques for establishing and supporting bases under polar conditions: (4) amplifying scientific knowledge of the area relative to ocean, georaphic, geological, weather and other  FIVE CENTS THE COPY  election guess, band leader Ray Anthony sub-rruts to a dressing by Alphonse Borge of Chicago 111 as the  unhappy!

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 mother.  Although the weather bureau reported representative snow depths of IO 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  Ex-Sailors Urged  To Apply Now  Logging In Applications For Terminal Leave Pay  WASHINGTON, Nov. 13, <**>— Commodore William R. Ryan, fiscal director of the navy, appealed to former navy men today to hurry up with those applications for terminal leave pay.  Something like 2,000.000 hadn’t been heard of as of last Saturday, when the total received stood at 1,565,229.  “The navy now is paying claims at the rate of 20.000 a day.” Ryan said in a statement, “and unless we can continue to receive a substantial amount of the expected 3,500.000 claims we cannot utilize the capacity to w'hich we are now built up for the ex-service men’s benefit.” That means those 1,200 people handling navy payments through a central disbursing office at  probably would not exceed three u„„ at LakeS naval trainin *  sla -  or four percent, “but would have been much higher without this outside equipment.”  Pressure Does It  A tornado can take a tight-fitting cork out of a battle.

Game Thursday  District Contest At Holdenville Moved Up One Night  To accommodate Holdenville high school, Coach Elvan George of Ada has agreed to play the Wolverines Thursday night instead of Friday night. It will be the last conference game for both teams and will possibly attract the largest crowd to see a game at Holdenville this year.  Coach George said that he could see no particular advantage or disadvantage by playing Thursday night and because Holdenville accommodated Ada a few years ago it was decided to play the game a day earlier than scheduled.  Holdenville is looking for a final conference victory in hopes of moving into a tie for first place in the conference while the Cougars will be looking for their first conference victory.  C. J. Powell, Holdenville mentor and former coach of the East Central Tigers, will not have any advantage over Coach George because 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 rescheduling 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 rescheduled until ll a.m. Wednesday. He said, too, that tickets to the game are on sale at the Cor- ner Drug and E -  an d M. Clothiers.  Clothing Prices May Level OH New  NEW YORK, Nov. 12. — (ZF) — Clothing prices generally will remain at about their current levels unless there are sharp increases in fabric or labor costs, manufacturers indicated today.  A possible exception is in rayon goods where an immediate increase in yam 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 Manufacturers Association, said 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 decontrol.”  He added that “manv manufacturers have decided to absorb increased costs wherever possible.”  Weldon Acquitted OI Murder Charge  LA GRANGE, Ga.

They became apparent despite a warning by Secretary of State Cymes that the United States could not continue making compromises on the Trieste issue — and an assertion bv Foreign Minister Molotov that Russia insisted on changes in some Paris Peace Conference provisions for govern ing the Trieste territory.  Molotov also raised one new dispute by asking a treaty provision fixing a deadline of possibly three or four months, after the treaty becomes effective, for removal of foreign troops from Trieste. The troops there are American and British.  Byrnes end Molotov joined argument repeatedly during three and one-ha lf hour session of the Big  Challenging Russia’s assertion that the U.
