Faces Financial Disaster Few Pay Dues; Congo Operation May Come To End UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) U.N. prestige faces 'a. mortal blow if lack of funds forces the world body to abandon its Congo opera- tion. Secretary General -U Thant warned this week that the United Nations cannot survive as an effec- tive instrument unless mem- bers lay aside their dif- ferences and help pay the ?130-million Congo debt, Chances of getting out of the red appeared remote after the So- viet Union and France told the 110-nation budgetary committee they have no intention of paying any part of the month- ly- effort No Help There was no sign of help com- ing from 48 other U.N. members who have never paid anything for the upkeep of the Congo force since it was put into the field more than two years ago. Thant has staved off financial disaster by raising about mil- lion on a emergency bond issue. He warned there is only enough, money left to keep the operation alive for a few more months. Unless payments from default- ing members improve considera- bly, Thant will have to ask a spe- cial session of the General Assem- bly next spring for emergency funds to keep the U.N. force in the Congo. Assembly Reluctant It has become plain, however, that the assembly is still at odds over the bond issue it authorized and would be reluctant to -impose another Congo assess- ment Many delegates favor Thant's plan to reunify Katanga Province withvthe Congo. But they feel that the staggering expense of the op- eration makes it imperative that the United Nations abandon its Congo commitment as soon as possible. Nations who have faithfully car- ried their share of the Congo cost have grown weary of the extra burden of buying bonds because the. Soviet Union and others re- fuse to assume any part of the load. The United States has paid more than million -of the ?240 million the Congo force has cost since it was formed in July 1960. There has been mounting oppo- sition in Congress to the United States volunteering nearly 50 per cent of the Congo cost while the Soviet Union is nearly mil- lion in arrears and France more than million.

Pictured with the new plates are Eutana Rigsby 11-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Rigsby, 325 West Fourteenth, and Deidre Walker, 5, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Walker, 901 Crestview. The new tags .have dispensed with the time-hon- ored number system for counties. Instead of county number 23, Pontotoc County tags will have the prefix "PN" followed by the vehicle's individual number. Also, the "Visit Okla- homa" has been left off the 1963 tags. They go on sale next Tuesday at the local tag agency on North Mississippi. Reservations for special numbers may be made until Satur- day noon, according to Christine Linker, tag agent. (NEWS Staff Second Polio Vaccination Program's Set For Sunday The second Pontotoc County Sa- bin Oral Polio Vaccine Clinic will be hold Sunday, December 9, at the National Guard Armory. The Pontotoc County Medical Society and the Ada Jaycees are sponsoring the clinic, to be held from p. m. until p.._m. The'Me'dical Society urges "all' residents to take the vaccine. It is the Type II Sabin vaccine." There have been seven times as many cases of paralytic polio this year in Oklahoma as com- pared with last year. Type II Oral Vaccine has never caused any ill effects or untoward side effects in adults or children, in 13 to 15 million dosages. The vaccine is dissolved in an ordinary lump of sugar. It re- quires only a few minutes or less to pass through the clinic. All adults should take the vac- cine, .the Medical Society urges. The only reasons for not taking the vaccine December 9th would be, if an individual was ill with a fever of more than 100 degrees, experiencing stomach or diges- tive disorder, or ill with intestinal or virus flu.' The Medical Society further points out-the order- -in-which vaccines are taken is. not impor-. tant It is not necessary to take Type I before taking.Type II, In order to make the clinic as efficient as possible, there will be prc-registration blanks printed in the Friday edition of the Ada Evening News. These blanks should be'completed and taken to the clinic Sunday. For those with pre-registration blanks, visiting the clinic will take approximately 60 seconds, accord- ing to ..Lloyd Jack, of the Ada Jaycees. Keating Claims Much Waste Can Be Eliminated OKLAHOMA CITY homa's state government can be made more efficient with less cost to the taxpayer by eliminating waste and duplication. Personnel Director Wallace Keating said to- day. Keating again said payrolls of most departments can be reduced without crippling their services to the public. But he.stressed that his opinion, would not necessarily 'bring savings since better salar- ies should be paid and better workers obtained in some cases. said, there are a few de- partments which need more' em- ployes. Gov.-elc'ct Henry Bellmon, who campaigned on a plank to stream- line state government and reduce payrolls, already has conferred with Keating on this and. plans further conferences. Keating said he also .stands ready to get specific with.legis- lators who took issue with his statement during' the campaign. Thj personnel director was. drawn into the campaign when questioned by reporters on Bell- mon's statement that payrolls could be lowered.15 to.20 per cent without hurting efficiency. Legis- lators complained later he told them he was misquoted and they have formally notified him that he will be called.before investi- gating committees'when the'ses- sion starts Jan. 8. Keating said today that his statement during the campaign inadvertently was 'made .to sound like big savings could result from reducing be did not intend that. He is in a strange position among Democratic -appointed state officials at of a Re- publican administration: Bellmon is friendly" toward him and says he wants Keating to stay on the job.

The four provide for, the issuance and sale of a total of in general obli- gation bonds. With the exception of -Ward IE. support was indicated throughout Ada'. In the northwest quarter Ada, however, in the four boxes n Ward one measure car- ried in any -precinct. Ironically enough, because of lower evalua- tions, this'is the section of the city that 'would by far the smallest portion of the bill. Close Squeeze The largest project had the closest squeeze. It was the city hall, asking in general obligation bonds. The final tally showed it carried 977 to 725. It failed to. make .the grade in 10 of the city's 22 boxes. In 1-1, it was defeated by a one vote margin, 25-24; 1-2, 34-32; 1-4, 22- 20; 2-lv 11-14; .2-3, 48-37; 3-1, 29- 10; 3-2, 3-3, 6040; 3-4, 20-11; 44, 46-29. Proposition two asked in bonds to finance a new traffic light system for Ada. It carried handsomely by, almost a 2 to 1 majority. In fact, it lost out only in six boxes. In 2-1, it went down, 11-4; 3-1, 28-11; 3-2, 50- 46; 34, 19-10 and 4-4, 38-36. Airport Carries The third proposition asked 000 in bonds to finance repairs arid improvements at the Ada Municipal Airport. It carried 022 to 677. It failed in 2-1, by 11 to 4; 2-3, 45-39; 3-1, 13-9; 3-2, 43-20; 3-3, 4-3, 36-33, and 4-4, 43-31. The- final measure and tha smallest sought for addi- tional fire fighting equipment. It won to 577. It lost out in 2-1 by 11 to 4. Again in 3-1, it went down 29-10; 3-2, 35-28; 3-3, 53-48; 3-4, 20-10; and 4-4, 41 to 36. The. most consistent precinct in the city was in Ward II, Precinct 1. Voters there with remarkable regularity voted against every proposition, 11 to 4. Favorable Precinct The Jargest majorities on .all propositions were established in Ward IV, Precinct 5. All meas- ures there enjoyed almost a Eve to one majority. Local political observers were puzzled in advance.of Tuesday's election. The four measures en- gendered surprisingly little .dis- cussion and many felt would be an extremely light turnout at the polls. When all was said and done, however, approximately vot- ers participated in the election, exceeding .t considerably the ap- proximately vote total in the 1959 water bond balloting.
