And, as frost bitten Adans turned up the heat winter hazards from 'fire in- creased, drawing a warning from the city fire depart- ment. While the met y plunged below the freezing mark, city firemen rushed into the cold three times in a 24-hour span to extinguish blazes caused by heating systems. Firemen said this sort of rush was commonplace as the tempera- tures get colder. "People should check their heating systems be- fore turning them they warn- ed. "If there is any fire danger present in the system, it will make itself known firemen said. Three Blazei As if to illustrate the point, the three blazes illustrated three ways heating systems can cause fires. At the state highway depart- ment garage, a small fire was started in the roof. A flue pipe was overheated and caused the fire in adjacent parts of the ceil- ing. A minor fire started in a chim- ney at 208 East fire in the fireplace spread to soot accumulated during the summer in the chimney. Nothing serious. In a fire this morning, a heater too close to a wall in a small shed at 328 West Fifth set the structure ablaze. Firemen put this fire out in short order, too. The heater was lighted so-that family's pet dog wouldn't get to cold in the chilly night_ 10 Degress The weather "is 'plenty cold, al- though skies remain clear. The thermometer couldn't register anything higher than 29 degrees yesterday, and had plunged to a low of 10 degrees by 7 a. m. today. It appeared unlikely that the temperature would rise above freezing. The only consolation was that snow was not in the immedi- ate forecast, although it is'pos- sible here later in the week. Much of the rest of the United States is held in a vice-like grip of cold, gusty winds and record- shattering snowdrifts. Record low temperatures were reported in most of the ice belt for the second straight day 10 days in advance of the official start of the winter season. More Snow Falls In the snow-covered sections of the Northeast, pounded by storms for nearly a week, more heavy snow fell. Weary highway crews struggled to keep the main arter- ies open. Snow depths measured eight feet in parts of northeastern Ohio. main core of the Arctic air centered in the North Central re- gion. Brisk winds powered the sub-zero cold southward to the Gulf Coast and eastward to the Appalachians.

It was near zero in sections of North Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennes- see and in mountain areas of northern Georgia and Alabama. Florida reeled from the- ab- normally low temperatures for the second consecutive day. The bitter cold threatened whiter veg-. etables. Damage to crops varied but some estimates are in the mil- lions of dollars. No serious dam- age was reported immediately to citrus crops.

The mer- (Continued on Two) By ERNEST THOMPSON Th'e Republicans and Democrats buried the hatchet Tuesday night in' a "love feast" at East .Cen- tral, then took time out to honor the biggest 'Republican in the county, Irl "Big Boy" Rhynes. The occasion was billed as a "Two-Party Banquet" and in- cluded among the guests were legislators and leaders from both political parties. After a short talk by Drew Mason, administrative assistant to Governor-elect Henry Bellmon, the 150 people at the banquet roared. their approval as the county Republican committee pre- sented Rhynes a surprise award for outstanding service to his party. Harry Horner, Davis, also read two telegrams, one from Bellmon and the other from Sen. Barry Goldwater, praising Rhynes' ef- forts in behalf of the Republicans, The usually ebullient -Rhynes was visibly. shaken byr'thes-sur- prise award. His voice broke, as he thanked, the county Republi- cans for their honor and he termed the Republican victory a result of "team effort" Among those who applauded Rhynes were Democratic legis- lators from Pbntotoc' County: State 'Sen. Allen G." Nichols and Representatives' Clive Rigsby and Lonnie- Abbott. Several other prominent Democrats were pres- ent for the affair. Mason said he was glad to see so many Democrats at the get- together: it- hadn't been for the' Democrats, we- would have had a Democrat governor."

As for Bellmon himself, Mason pictured the governor-to-be as a "unique individualist" who wants to cooperate with the legislator for. the betterment of Oklahoma, He said Bellmon is blunt anc seldom given' to consultation be- fore making announcements.
