The council finally voted on a compromise solution which, one spokesman noted, left both parties unhappy. Council members first voted not to permit the store to proceed with outlined plans for paving the alley. Then they rapidly voted on a compromise measure, -offered by Councilman Joe Bonar, which would permit the con- tractor to begin lowering the grade of the alley from a point 20 feet east of the east side of the store building and the grade would not exceed six per cent. Under the original plan, the cut starts 40 'feet east of the store. Only one section of the alley has been contested. This section crosses the rear of lots owned by Mrs. Lottie Braly. Her son, Mack Braly, has served as spokesman in her behalf. Also present at Monday night's council meeting was Mrs. Robert Keyes, who owns property on and is also affected by the project. The controversy has grown out of the "cut" made in the alley. Under design plans, the alley, running east from Broadway, Rusk Eases Ban On Briefing Allies On Berlin Conference New Talks Are 'Moderately7 Successful Contract's Let For E.C. Work B. H.

The contract was approved by the Board of Regents for Okla homa Colleges at a meeting helc in Oklahoma City. The Ada firm submitted a bic of on the two projects lowest of five bids received by the regents. All contractors sub- mitted combined bids on the two projects, although specifications permitted separate bids on the two buildings. Preliminary work is expectec to start on the buildings within the next two weeks. Completion date on the library extension is Dec. 17, 1962 and on the new ad building, Feb. 17, 1963. The new administration building and the expansion of the library are the biggest items in the col- lege's million building bond is- sue projects.

At the first meeting of the month, the council delayed taking any final action until Braly had a chance to be heard. History Reviewed He was present at the meeting Monday night. He reviewed the history of the noting that it had first come to his attention in the first two weeks of January. He told of a conversation with City Manager J. B. Davidson where the city manager stated that the alley would not be paved without the consent of all property owners. Braly said that he warned against continuing- work- -on- the- building until the problem had been resolved. He did-not want to see the project progress to the point where the building would to all purposes be set and changes would be costly and difficult. Solution Sought He noted that he made repeated attempts to secure a solution. He visited with the city manager, with the contractor and with rep- resentatives of the supermarket chain. After a council meeting in Febr- uary, he thought yet another at- tempt would be made to reach a working solution. But nothing hap- pened. Finally, after a letter from the city manager, a repre- sentative of the company con- tacted him but, again, no solution was reached. "They are asking us to do some- thing they won't do he said, referring to the cut in the alley. Defending Rights At the west edge of the Braly property, the alley is cut down 2Vi ieet and the cut is actually started some 40 feet east from the west ine of the Braly lots. Braly stressed that he "wel- comed" the company in Ada but citizens could hardly be blamed for defending their own property rights.

RYAN AP Special Correspondent. Red China's regime has admitted dismal defeat of its efforts to take the nation on a "big leap for- ward" in a big hurry. But it shows little sign of penitence or of knuckling under to.Soviet Premier Khrushchev's views of how a Communist state should develop. The results of the National Peo- ple's Congress-session which con- cluded in Peiping Monday also demonstrate little inclination to bow to Khrushchev's views of world Communist strategy. The report of Premier Chou En- lai and the final resolution of the secret sessions disclosed a sort of "do-it-yourself" program rep- resenting a possibly desperate at- tempt to cure the mainland's vast economic troubles. At the same time, Khrushchev was reminded sharply of Mao Tze-tung's view that Communist brces should never let brts to "isolate U.S. imperialiam and its followers" and to 'strengthen the unity and might I the socialist camp."
