Rising temperatures left condi- tions relatively mild farther west Frederiksen identified the youth who made the statement as Alfred E.

Wayne Harbolt and Charles Ryan of the Oklahoma City police d...iirtment, and Kan- sas Highway Patrolmen George Cninmann and Edwin Beckman. Quest's statement to officers, the police chief added, said the four youths were the three gun- men and driver wanted for arm- ed robbery of four grocery stores nt Oklahoma City Saturday night. .Reports from Oklahoma City said loot totaled and one of the gunmen was believed wounded. One Wounded Wallar is in an El Dorado hos- pital for treatment of wounds in both .logs, with a bullet lodged in his right leg, Frederiksen said. Efforts to have Wallar's wounds treated, the police chief added, led to arrest of the four youths, after highway patrolmen found the inside of their wrecked car spattered with blood. The police chief said was found on t'.vo of the on Wallar and on Quest. Quest, he said, claimed to have joined the others about a month ago, and said the four headquar- tered at Leavcnworth, returning there after each sortie into Okla- Decision Soon By Army On Draff Holiday Command Checking Needs Against Lack Of Enough Volunteers For Months Ahead By EDWARD E. BOMAR WASHINGTON, Dec. An army decision is expected this week on whether to resume the draft in January after a two- month step manpower advisors are reported to favor. Officials said recommendations are in the hands of Secretary Pat- terson and General Dwight D. Eisenhower, chief of staff, await- ing action. Those advisers favoring a call on selective service for a quota next month are understood to contend it would spur volunteer recruiting as well as supplement it. Latest reports show volunteer recruiting took an upward turn in the third week.of November, after a steady decline for more than a month. Recruits, including regular who re-enlisted or ex tended shorter terms of service to three, years, totalled com pared with the previous week. Below Expectations But for the entire month a tota of only about was expect- ed, representing little more than half the monthly fixed by the war department as a mini- mum requirement of the regular army.

No Hint Given Officials are giving' no hint whether the army will ask ex- tension of the draft beyond March 31. That question is wrapped up with the war department's an- nounced intention of pressing in the new congress for universal military training on grounds that some form of compulsion is im- perative to meet needs of the reg- ular army, the National Guard and organized reserve units. If extension should be asked, officials have said the war de- partment would propose that the draft terminate with the start of universal training. honii Quest said the four robbed two grocery stores in Tulsa last Thursday night, Froderikson said, and added that when arrested the four were returning to Leav- enworth from their third trip in- to Oklahoma. Frederiksen said the Oklahoma City officers wore informed by their headquarters today that warrants' charging armed rob- bery have been issued for the four youths at Oklahoma City.

Publicity Stirs Speculation He's Being Groomed For Top Spot Buildup By ED CREACH LONDON, Dec. unex- pected new publicity buildup for Soviet foreign Minister Vyache- slav M. Molotov in the govern- mcnt-controll 1 Russian presi set tongues wagging throughout Europe today in the popular game of trying to pick Prime S'-'-'in's successor. Many diplomats and others who had not regarded Molotov as most likely candidate were inclined to guess again after Mos- cow newspapers, reporting the i56-year-old Russian diplomat's election as an honorary member of the Soviet Academy of Sci- ence, lauded him lengthily as Slalin's closest assistant. This almost unprecedented singling out of a Stalin deputy for public praise came less than a month after Stalin, 67 years old and by some accounts in poor health, failed for the second con- secutive year to take part in the recent nationwide celebration of the Russian re' .ution anniver- sary. To some students of Soviet af- fairs it looked .s through Stalin might be stepping down, or per- haps be gradually relinquishing his powers, nd as though Molo- tov was perhaps being groomed for advancement. Molotov, undoubtedly the Rus- sian leader best known to the U S. To Use Pipelines Krug Says Government To Start Natural Gas On Way to Northeast WASHINGTON, Dec. Secretary of the Interior Krug said today the government plans immediate movement of natural gas through the Big. Inch and Little Inch pipelines to help re- lieve the coal shortage. VWe expect to begin movement of natural gas in the next five or six days, at the rate of cubic feet a Krug told the house surplus property commit- tee. Within the next 45 days, Krug said, gas can be moving at the rate of cubic feet a day over the war-built pipe lines from the southwest to the eastern seaboard. "The'gas can be a help" in the fuel shortage caused by the coal strike, Krug said, "but it is not the answer." He testified that even the movement of cubic feet of gas a day would amount only to the fuel equivalent of 000 tons of coal while the normal daily production exceeds 000 tons. The secretary said the Tennes- see Gas and Transmission com- pany will operate the pipelines under a lease during the emer- gency period. "This morning letters went to the War Assets Administration and the Federal Power Commis- he told the committee, "re- questing that in the light of the emergency the Big and Little Inch Pipe Lines be made avail- western world by virtue of his j able for movement of natural about board lumber every year. feet of WEATHER OKLAHOMA: Generally fair lonight and Tuesday; except not much change in temperature in Panhandle Tuesday; the lowest in prominence in big power deliber- ations at London, Paris and New York, has been a life-long work- er for the Communist party and is one of eight vice chairman of Russia's council of ministers, which Stalin is chairman.

Temperature Drops fo 26 Here, Lowest Yet For This Fall That it would be cold overnight no one doubted when the wind stayed cold all day Sunday. How- ever, the low of 26 degrees with- out any real cold-wave indica- :ions was a bit of' a surprise. Heavy frost gave visible demon- stratipn of the cold. That was the lowest recorded this fall. It represents a down- ward "sweep from Saturday-'s warm 70 degree maximum. The temperature tumbled to 38 by Sunday morning, moved up to 65 during the afternoon, then slid to 26 overnight. According to The Associated Press, sub-freezing temperatures were recorded at all, Oklahoma cities which reported to the veather bureau today, with the 23 degrees at Ponca City and Waynoka the lowest. Tulsa had a low of 24 degrees. At the Oklahoma City airport 25 was registered, two degrees' low- er than at the weather observa- ,ory in the city. Other minimums: Ardmore 28, Elk City 24, Enid 25, Fort Sill 27, and McAlester 28. Fair and warmer was the fore- cast. Storfs Fined For False Statement Admits Trying To Get Jobless Benefits Not Entitled To Zemry Y-.. Storts was fined and costs by Percy Armstrong, justice'of peace, Monday morning after the defendant changed his plea of not guilty to guilty. He was charged with making a false statement to obtain bene- fits under the Oklahoma Employ- ment Security Act.' The head of the local employment office said that no money had been paid Storts. Charges were brought against Storts when it was found that he was trying to obtain unemploy- ment benefits when he was not entitled to them. gas immediately." He said the -Federal Power Commission will rule on the man- ner of distributing it. Krug, a leader in the govern- ment's struggle with John L. Lewis in the coal crisis, gave no hint of when he expects the coal strike to end. Apparently planning a long drawn out battle with Lewis he said "every possible conservation of fuel" will be undertaken. Unemployed Rising Fast Coal Strike May Idle Million By End Of Week, Steel Output Fading PITTSBURGH, Dec. 2. Lack of fuel today idled over addition to more and more coal consuming industries shut down in the soft coal crisis with the prospect of sharply ris- ing unemployment ahead. The long holiday weekend tended to hold down unemploy- ment but twin hazards of coal shortages and dwindling sup- plies of steel promised to strike hard blows this week with pos- sibilities of being'laid ofj at week's end. Steel ingot production in the Youngstown district stood at 35 per cent of capacity, compared with 91 per cent two weeks ago. Only 35. of 83 open hearths were operating and nine of 25 blast furnaces. None of the area's three Bessemer converters was working.

Check Cabinet On Cutting War Powers Republicans Seeking Information On What Can Be Terminated WASHINGTON, Dec. Republicans are polling President Truman's cabinet on the question of which emergency war powers can be safely cut off and which should continue. Senator Wiley (R.-Wis.) said today he has sent the inquiries to cabinet members and the head of the Veterans Administration to prepare the way for quick action by the new congress to terminate all possible war powers and con- trols. "Some people, without think- ing, are telling us to decontrol, get rid of he told re- porters. "But we want to be sure we cut off suckers and not the tap roots of these trees. We want to be cer- tain what we are pruning." Anticipating 'his election as chairman of the senate judiciary committee, Wiley sent identical letters to the cabinet members and Veterans Administrator Omar Bradley asking a statement i: 1. "Which wartime and emer- gency powers of the president currently apply to his cabinet de- partment, 2. "Which powers in his opinion can be terminated and why, and when, 3. "Which in his opinion can- not be terminated and for how 'ong does he believe it is advis- able that they be kept in. force."

Murray predicted steel profits next year would reach 000 and declared: "Therefore Chicago Livestock Exposition In Progress, Saturday Pontotoc County 4-H Club Member Is Attending Affair in Illinois CHICAGO, Dec. 2. Three teen-age exhibitors from Illinois, Wisconsin and two boys and a girl and a Can- adian grain di- vided major honors at the Inter- national Livestock exposition. A pretty 15 year old girl, rod haired Phyllis Bonnater of Kes- wick, Iowa, saw her pound Hereford steer adjudged junior champion steer of the 47th show. Makes Progress Despite the loss of his right arm in a farm accident last April, a loss which he said "slowed me up a bit" but failed to keep him out of competition, William "Bill" Worthington, 19-year-old Pontiac, 111., farm youth, captured the pur- ple ribbon for the junior grand champion hog. Another junior champion who emerged with a purple ribbon from the first day's competition in the eight day show, was Wayne Disch, 16, of Evansville, Wis. Disch is a member of a sheep raising family noted for taking first place awards at the inter- national and its wartime substi- tute, the Chicago fat show. Besting all junior competitors for the champion pen of three southdown lambs, Wayne, a con- fident, competent sheepman, showed not only the grand cham- pion pen but also the reserve grand champion. One Grain Jtidg'cd Grain judges, burdened with the gigantic task of sclenting the best of some samples of grain from United States and Canadian exhibitors, were able today to reach only one final de- termination, that of "rye king." The new "rye the first Might Admit II Later On Government Claims Would Prove Lewis' Said Spring Strike Deal Would Hold Good WASHINGTON, Dec. Federal Judge T. Alan Goldsbor- ough announced tod.ny at John L Lewis' contempt Iri'.il that the court itself will present evidence tomorrow lending to show thru the UMW lead or "did not obey ".i restraining order in the soft coal dispute. If Hie testimony establishes that lad, the federal district judge said, it would tend to leave Lewis and UMW "in the techni- cal position of a contempt of court." The jurist added that it also would tend to establish that the strike of 400.000 mine workers was in violalion of the Nov. 15 court order which instructed Lewis to call off a work contract termination notice. The slnlcmont may be admit- ted in tin; ti-inl "at a Inter dnte if the court sees fit." Goldsbor- oiiKli ruled, however. Chief Government Counsel John F. Sonnelt told the court he wished to enter the exhibit as proof of "willfulness" by Lewis in declaring the contract termin- ated as of Nov. 20. It was the con- tract cancellation that touched off the current walkout of 000 soft coal miners. To avoid a dramnlic court room showing of the news reel itself, Lewis' lawyers volunteered to ac- cept a typewritten transcript. They first made known, however, that they objected to its admis- sion in any event. The defendants interpose the objection." said Chief UMW Counsel Welly K. Hopkins, "that this evidence is not relevant in the contempt' issue before your honor." But Hopkins quickly added: "However, if your honor over- rules our objection, the defend- ants will stipulate that the state- ments were made." Sonnclt told the court that tho news reel film "accurately set forth the words and features of the said defendant Lewis." In support of his objection to the evidence, Hopkins pointed out that the news reel was made last statutes dealing with war powers and controls. Their expiration dates vary but many of the most., important continue until six months after the official end of the war. Two Injured In Sfonewall Wreck Investigation Of Collision Not Completed Two persons received minor injuries shortly after midnight Saturday at Stonewall, accord- ing to Kenned I Will, highway patrolman who investigated the accident.
