Khrushchev told the pow- erful 175-member Commu- nist party Central Commit- tee the primary emphasis would continue to be on heavy industry and pre- sumably armaments rather than consumer goods. But he stressed new efforts to put more food and other consumer goods in Soviet shops. The program was laid down in a long speech to the committee's special meeting on industry and agriculture reorganization. Its major recommendation called for tightening of party control over all phases of production. Look At West Khrushchev also told the com mittee the Soviet Union should take a thoughtful look at what makes profits for the capitalists in the West. "There was a mean in the period of the personality, cult (a phrase meaning the Stalin era) the idea was sedulously fostered that everything that is ours is unreservedly ideal, and everything that is foreign is equally Khrushchev said; "We should remember Lenin's Injunction to be able, if necessary, to learn from the capitalists, to imitate the good and the, profit- able they have." Proposes Organizations Kirushchev'prbposed.two party organizations, one for control of industry, "the other 'for agricul- ture. The party should create, he said, organizations paralleling those of specific industries from top to bottom, to unite all party members.of any given.industry. He proposed.that the number of regional economic councils and farm production directorates be reduced and consolidated. Other points-he made: 1.

A larger turnout is. ex- pected for tonight's finale. The Garson Kanin'' comedy- satire deals with the shenanigans of' a hoodlum businessman in Washington to make some under- handed deals with federal-big- wigs. The lead roles are handled by John Fleet, Linda Robertson and Eugene Hughes. Fleet stars in the role made fa- mous on the stage by >Paul-Doug- las and on the screen by Broderick Crawford. Miss .Robertson, pos- sibly the first non-blonde to play the "dumb blonde" role appears as his girlfriend.

'For Ada's Kerr Machine a re- markably efficient pump. Another factor is the father and son team which guides the firm. Still another are the pre- cise, skillful hands which oper- ate the machines in the Kerr shop. While many facets of the oil industry are slumping, nation- wide, Kerr keeps perking right- along. They are finding an in- creasingly favorable reception in the industry. As more and more .applica- tions are found for this product, an even greater demand can 'be expected, Kerr pumps range from a one cylinder to .a hefty three cylinder capable of pumping 3888 barrels of fluid. a day. Fifteen years ago, Robert Kerr developed an efficient hydraulic pump for use on 'puller rigs.' These pullers remove casings from old oil wells. Wasting no time, Kerr opened a small ma- chine shop and went to work. At first, the shop was primarily for repair of oil field .equip- ment. Then things slowed down in the fields and something had to be done. Muscular Dystrophy Drive Opens In Ada This week Ada and county resi- dents will be asked to participate in the Muscular Dystrophy cam- paign. It is the first time an or- ganized program has been launch- ed in the county. Heading the effort is Mrs. Dean Sanford. Tommy Maines is assist- ing as financial chairman. All the events will be packed into one week. All'funds will go to the association's national ef- fort to find remedies for this dread disease. Cooperating in. the effort here will be the members of Epsilon Sigma Alpha and-the .Rainbow Girls. On Tuesday and Wednesday evening, bowlers can do their bit for the program at the Strike and Spare Lanes: On Tuesday, men and women, in regular league play, can apply their, second, game, with appropriate handicaps, toward one of the three liandsome trophies which will be given. An- other trophy will be available for women who bowl on Wednesday evening. Comedian Jerry Lewis has been a standard bearer in the fight against the disease in recent years and he will be featured Thursday on K-TEN at p.m. On Sunday, the" Rainbow Girls will volunteer their time'and ef- forts in a limited house-to-house canvass. Other residents who want to contribute may send any donation to Mr. Maines at the Oklahoma State Bank. "Every Mrs. Sanford said, "new discoveries are found in helping control this disease. But funds are needed: to 'stop this killer. Anything will-help, pennies, nickels, anything anyone can give. It is the 'only way we'have of fighting, back." Mrs. 'Sanford pointed out that there are at least two.-victims of muscular dystrophy who Ada residents. The disease shows' no 'mercy. It can strike man- or woman, any age, at anytime. Kerr began to turn- but high pressure pumps In earnest.'He worked with his son, John, and a crew of skilled- machinists. The elder Kerr is a'talented and expert machinist. John is'busi- ness manager and draftsman. However, John is no slouch in the shop himself. 'Except 'for time spent in college, he has worked with.his-father since he was fourteen. There, aren't many patents available for this type pump. The principle is an old one. "It's a highly competitive field. The only way to have an edge .is to do it John Kerr reflected. .it better" attitude has resulted in frequent modifi- cations anB ..improvements in Kerr products... There are stain- less steel models to pump high-' ly corrosive models to move salt water, :high and low pressure, models. Recently, Texas-size .machin- ery rolled out of Ada, bound for Woodward. The 'two .huge "hy- .draulic oil casing pullers" are the largest in the world. They were custom designed and! built by the Kerr shop. They are ex- amples of the flexibility .which Kerr maintains. In their' efforts to maintain high quality, the Kerrs order castings from many distant foundries. They' consult with, metallurgists to find correct al- loys. Pumps are modified to per- .form special tasks. One, special job was to mount a pump on a fire truck. The truck was a prarie fire-fighting It .was owned by K.

In at the northwest end of the disputed border, the Chi- nese have taken an outpost guard- ing a vital Indian airfield at Chushul and fighting is continuing in ths area, Nehru, said. His announcement of the new reverses came after a speech Sunday night in which he said the Chinese offensive is threatening Indian independence. He said oth- er countries'are now beginning to realize- that this -is not a border dispute but "naked, crude 'and shameless aggression." A Peking: broadcast quoted Chi- nese Communist Premier Chou En-lai as saying .U.S. arms aid to India will enlarge the conflict to the detriment of the Chinese and Indian people and of the Afro- Asian peoples."
