And star James Alexander stepped out of his role as "Curly" to express the appreciation of the troupe for the "greatest ovation given the show" since it first opened. _ The play-goers joined in the spirit of the'musical, lustily singing two choruses of the title song during the curtain calls. The writers, producers and act- tors were just as enthusiastic about the stater.....

When the thermometer drop- ped to the freezing mark, a num- ber of Adans were enroute from Ada to Oklahoma City, but they were still thinking of participa- ting in the parade even as the weather got worse. Two truck loads of horses for Round Up club members were transported from Ada to Oklaho- ma City and on arrival were sent 3atk to Ada. Members of the Ada High scnool band headquartered at the Bon Bakery and presented a con- cert for those who were near enough to hear. The rising bread in the bakery didn't fall, but the band member's spirits were plen- ty low at that time.

The hope is that Lewis in- stead of pursuing a strike which the official said might prove dis- astrous to his miners as well as to the national economy will seek a face-saving end to the con- troversy. Lewis Could Save Face By bargaining with the private owners, the official suggested, Lewis could gracefully slide out of the present situation without loss of prestige and without yield- ing on his demands, since he has never specifically slated his de- T) finds.
