Many of the moves are inter- related and some of them will be- gin in the immediate future. Perhaps the first move will be the shift of the B B Drug- store, 126 West Main, from its I present location to the new build- ing at the intersection of Main and Broadway, 100 West Main. The building, purchased by Joe and Billy Bryan, is now in the final stages of mod- ernized and altered to a hand- some one-story structure. At a still later date, Bryan's Corner Drug will also move just across the street and the Bryans will combine both, their Argentine President Gains Upper Hand BUENOS AIRES Jose Maria Guido, supported by a tough calvary general and a column of tanks, gained the upper hand over ultimatum-bearing Argentine military chiefs Saturday just as civil war seemed to be exploding. The diminutive president imposed a truce while in- surgent armor stormed into the outskirts of Buenos Aires and probed machine gun and artillery emplacements commander Gen. of army Raul Poggi in the heart of capital. The crisis, the nearest Argen- tina has come to serious blood- letting since dictator Juan D. Pe- ron was routed seven years ago, burgeoned when cavalry Gen. En- rique Rauch launched unexpected- ly ah insurrection against the army high command Friday night from Campo de Mayo, Argentina's most .important military camp, 30 mites' outside the capital. The insurrection snowballed and surprised Poggi, k'ey leader in de- posing and imprisoning President Arturo Frondizi on March 29. Gui- do is Frondizi's military-picked successor. All morning it seemed blood be spilled on the issue of whether Peronists, who won in the March 18 elections, would be barred from office by Guide's dic- tatorial decree, as the high com- mand demanded, or-by legal proc- esses sanctioned by Congress, as rades. the insurgents insisted.

Easter penetrated the Iron Cur- tain, carrying its hope of life everlasting into Orthodox and Baptist churches in Moscow. The commemoration of Christ's sacrifice on the Cross brought thousands of pilgrims to Jerusa- lem, tens of thousands of visitors to the Vatican in Rome and mil- lions of the faithful to special services throughout the world.

When the Bryans leave the present location of the Corner Drug it will mark an 'end to a 40- year occupancy of this space by the firm. And this move triggers another change. J. Kent" Smith Jewelers will move into the corner- location, previously, occupied by the Bryans at 100 East Main. Florian Smith, veteran jeweler and business- man, noted that his store has operated in its present location for 32 years.. He plans complete redecoration of the new location. Still in this block, Frank and Jack Dillon have announced that Dillons will expand. The Dillons are doubling the size of their op- eration by expanding into the building immediately to the east of their present store. This build- ing, owned by W. M. Emanuel, has been the home of Belew's I Five and Ten Cent Store, now ceasing operation in Ada. The Dillons have been operat- ing from their 25-foot front loca- tion since 1946. The move will give them 50 feet of Main Street frontage and the front will be modernized' as a common unit. Openings will be cut in the wall between the present Dillon store and the new building to make, in effect, a common unit. New fix- tures and -an ambitious; moderni- zation campaign are on tap.

Clarence Shiplett and Ray- mond White, owner of the Ship- lett and White B. F. Goodrich Store, will move into the Lee lo- cation. Mr. and Mrs. M. G. Mackenzie, who own and operate .the Gift House, plan to shift from their location at 928 East Main, just off the campus. They will join the ranks of downtown merchants by moving into the quarters formerly oc- cupied by J. Kent Smith Jewelers at 122 East Main. Still in the same block, 'Asa Hutchinson recently purchased O'Neal's Jewelers. Interested with Hutchinson is Tom Wilson. In fact, Wilson, well-known Ada jeweler, will operate and manage the new installation. This store is now being com- pletely redecorated. It should open by mid-May and will be known as the Diamond Shop. It will be a specialty shop in dia- monds but also will handle fine j silver, the finest lines in watches and other jewelry items. Kennedy Sends Message Hailing Start Of Show SEATTLE, Wash. "Let the fair an- nounced President Kennedy in Palm Beach, Fla., and the Seattle World's Fair swung open to the public Saturday amid cheers and cannonading. Excited crowds hailed the beginning of the Century 21 Exposition unaware that an Air Force jet fighter crashed into a neighbor- hood just north of Seattle after flying over the open- ing ceremonies. The F102 leveled two houses and damaged two others. Two persons were killed and one hospitalized. The pilot, Capt. Joseph D. Wildt. 33, Cincinnati, Ohio, was rescued unhurt after parachuting into Lake Washington. Officials at Paine Field, 20 miles north of here where Wildt was stationed, said he lost control of his plane on the second fly-over. Twelve thousand early arrivals crowded into Memorial Stadium to watch the opening festivities and hear President Kennedy in a telephoned message hail the open- ing of the first World's Fair in America in 22 years. "What we show was achieved with great effort in the field of science, technology and indus- the President said. "These are a bridge to carry us competently toward the 21st century. _i.'Manyjnalions Its -Srid'Trill send their people. -We welcome them. 'This exemplifies the spirit of coopera- tion with which we approach. the' decades ahead. May we open not only a great World's Pair, but may we open an era of peace and understanding among all man- kind." Secretary of Commerce Luther H. Hodges, the administration's chief delegate to the fair, declared it "symbolizes our faith in the future of this country and the world." Sen. Warren G. Magnuson, D- Wash., a prime mover in assur- ing federal help for the exposition said: "Science never Has known a better showcase. Never has science had so much to show." The oratory over, the celebrat- ing began. Servicemen fired a 21-gun sa'- lute. Boat whistles, sirens and church bells added to the din. Balloons dotted- the sky. A 538- bell carillon rang out from the Space Needle. Motorboals raced around the lagoon of the stadium with flags and pretty girls. Workers toiled far into Friday night to make the final cleanup for the opening. Virtually all of the 175 domestic exhibits and 95 foreign exhibits were ready.

This is borne out by a little re- search into the matter. The average daily attendance at Ada High School-is somewhere in the neighborhood, of 480 students. Of that 480, it is 'estimated that 420 of them-are 16 or the eligible age for a driver's license. And, of that 420, fully 95 per cent are now operating automobiles sometimes their own, often their Take a trip past the high school any day of the school week.
