It was on this Date that the shots that opened the revolutionary War were fired. When the British troops fired on a company of american minute men that morning they changed the history of the world. It was touching off a powder Magazine As the British Learned before Nightfall. Anticipating some such move the americans had prepared a system of signals that spread the news almost As rapidly As a Telegraph could and in a few hours the British were in Hasty Retreat with americans shooting at them from every Point of Vantage. It was Only by sheer Good Luck that any of them reached Boston and safety. The obstinate British King and his bungling advisers made a fatal mistake in estimating the earnestness of the colonists and their determination to fight for the rights of British subjects. The government looked upon the colonies As a Field to be exploited for the Benefit of the Mother country. The colonists were As Loyal As any other englishmen but they insisted that in coming across the water they had lost none of the cherished rights of British subjects. This was the Issue and the colonists established it seven years later when Britain acknowledged the Independence of the americans. Had men of More discernment been in control of the British government there would have been no War and the history of the world would today read quite differently. The Ada evening news mayor gets big ice Cream cake monday april 19, 1937 j it a Quot Cream u Eek comes to Ada 38 mayor Bill Crawford graciously accepts a two and one half gallon ice Cream cake from or. Dwight Davis manager of Steffen s ice Cream l1ay�r Crawford promised to Cut the cake at a Little ice Cream party with City employees Scandinavia May become War theatre mysterious naval Maneu vers and plane surveys alarm natives the c. I. O. And american federation of labor fight May become highly interesting in Oklahoma. The Picher miners have met the c. I. O. Invasion with pick handles and the local Union embracing nearly All the miners have affiliated with the federation. Now comes the announcement that about 10,000 refinery works Are to do likewise thus heading off the Lewis organizers Bel Ore they get started. Something of the kind is taking place in i exas and the lines Are being drawn. For one thing employers Are inclined to favor the Green organization if they must choose Between the two and that will be an important Factor in Many cases. Under the terms of the Wagner act All Industry is to be unionized whether the employers like it or not and Green is More conservative As a Leader than Lewis. Lewis has had remarkable Success thus far but when the federation swings into action at full Speed there maybe a different Story to Tell. It is certain that the scrap for control of Union i established that 46 flights of urn labor is to be a warm one. I known air planes had been made Over Northern Scandinavia presumably for military scouting purposes. Military experts consider the interests of Russia and Germany in the Arctic fairly obvious. In the event of War these experts declare Germany would strike first to bottle up the russian Fleet in the Baltic by taking control of the narrow Waterways around Denmark. At the same time the German sea and air fleets would try to establish Arctic bases to disrupt Russia s essential Arctic communications. Germany it was pointed out. Also has an important interest Oslo april 19.�?�?reports of phantom fliers in the far North of Norway Sweden and Finland and secret naval Maneu vers off their strategic coasts brought a wave of a War scared rumours to Scandinavia today. The stories of mysterious air planes flying Over Little inhabitant de regions of the North and o giant foreign warships off Shore pointed the opinion of military experts that the area was in direct danger of becoming a theatre of War in the event of a conflict Between Russia and Germany. Military authorities at Bergen Norway announced yesterday their investigations have established that a Fleet of four warships one aircraft Carrier one submarine and one air plane of unidentified nationalist mane Vered close to the norwegian coast april 5. In Oslo the newspaper Aften Post openly stated Germany had sent warships to look for possible bases for air and naval operations in the Arctic Ocean while such a conservative journal As the Stockholm Sven ska Dag Bladt emphasized the possibility of Sweden s becoming a Battleground in advocating better defense measures. Many flights observed the swedish general staff declared that in the past year it had in protecting her yearly imports of High Grade Iron Ore from Sweden. Russia in turn would be Paramountcy interested in keeping her communications open from Murmansk and Alexandrovsk almost within the Arctic Circle and in blocking the swedish mines from Germany. There is a Glimmer of Hope that the Spanish civil War May be in its final stages. Nine months of fighting finds both sides about where they were at the beginning. Loss of life and property has been frightful but no tangible results have been attained. No doubt general Franco Leader of the insurgents and Benito Mussolini Are two surprised men. Their plot to seize the Spanish government and set up a fascist regime appeared perfect and they confidently expected to be in full control within a few weeks. They had most of the army with them and everything looked promising. They did not reckon with the spirit of the loyalists and were surprised at the turn of events. Mussolini had sent a Large Force of troops into the country and spent a lot of Money for supplies and equipment All in vain. Now he gives signs of wanting to Back out of the mess gracefully. If the Powers agree to withdraw their support and actually do so the War will soon end much to the Relief of the world in general. Washington april 19 of pm a the Treasury launched a new borrowing operation today opening bids on $50,000,000 discount Bills issued in anticipation of third Quarter income tax receipts in mid september. Secretary Morgenthau said he expected to borrow $50,000,000 weekly for an indefinite period to mailing the Treasury a Cash working balance. The new borrowing aroused speculation by Federal financial authorities As to whether further Bond issues would be necessary in june. Discount Bills aggregating $300,000,000 come due then coincident with june 15 tax receipts. Fiscal experts said the major actors of uncertainty were the savings to result from the president s order for Sharp Economy by All departments for the remainder of the year and the figure to a fixed As necessary for Relief. Many officials saw Little Hope the budget could be balanced by the beginning of the 1938 fiscal year As or. Roosevelt predicted a ast january. Tax receipts were $100,000,050 below estimates in March indicating total receipts for the period possibly will be As much As $500,000,000 below the estimates on which the president s prediction was based. Enactment of a new Railroad pension Bill would put a $100,-000,000 Dent in Federal Revenue forecasts. As present the Treasury a working Cash stands at $834,359,000 Secretary Morgenthau has said he Hopes to keep it at the $1,000,-000,000 level. Indians still practice Art of witchcraft Phoenix adz., april 19 a in a investigation of an axe murder on the Colorado River Indian reservation near Parker disclosed today a witchcraft Quot remains a potent Factor in the lives of southwestern tribesmen. Ronald Jones 36, educated Yuma Indian calmly told Federal authorities he hacked John Elee Stokes 58, to death because he feared Stokes would a bewitch him Quot and his family. Quot it is something like hypnotism Jones said in describing the sorcery attributed to Stokes. A they just have to look at you to bring Jones asserted Stokes caused the death of his own son through witchcraft because he disapproved of the Young Many a marriage to a relative of Jones. Belief in witchcraft by no Means is confined to the Yuma tribe according to students of southwestern indians. The Large Navajo tribe of Northern Arizona and new Mexico is one of the most firm believers that some of its members Are vested with Powers of sorcery. Oklahoman in Washington Washington april 19�?cp at least four of Oklahoma a representatives Are among the approximately 70 members Oran led into a steering committee in behalf of the Wright Patman Bill for Federal ownership of the nations 12 Federal Reserve Banks. The four Are Lyle Boren of Seminole Jed Johnson of Anadarko Sam Massingale of Cordell and Jack Nichols of Eufaula.

If the fool Bill that originated in the Blain of some half baked politicians we Don t know who should pass it we Ould mean an end of that sales system and seriously affect every newspaper in Oklahoma. Another Bill prohibits dentists from advertising. The present legislature has been extremely hostile to the press and a lot of members will need a Good lesson if they aspire to re election or to some other office.

Before the season is Over several heroes of the Diamond will go into eclipse and new ones will replace them. This is the regular thing in baseball for the Best of players must slip Back in time. Americans love their National game and have great admiration for the stars who Supply the thrills of hard fought games. It would be a Relief to a lot of officials if labor formed a party of its own. It would be a minority party for a Long time and not have to be reckoned with. In close elections labor now holds the balance of Power hence must be accorded respectful attention. That was Gompers idea and it is a Good one for labor. Chicago april 19.�? up a in Advance of president Roosevelt a expected Relief message to Congress this week state governors presented an almost solid front today against reduction of the Federal program if it meant placing a greater Burden on the states. Their views obtained by the associated press in a National Survey showed sentiment strongly favouring continuation of the works Progress administration the civilian conservation corps and other Federal employment agencies on the present $2,000,-000,000 a year scale. Only two governors a one Democrat and the other a re pub bean a declared the time Hac come for the states to lift the Relief Load from the. Governments shoulders. Several contended there should be a loosening rather than a tightening of Washington purse strings. Arguments that higher taxes and a a bankruptcy would follow a National Relief budget Cut were advanced by Many of the chief executives. The presidents tentative budget estimates in january listed $1,500,000,000 As the contemplated Federal Relief outlay for the fiscal year to begin july i a 25 per cent Cut. Since then utterances of or. Roosevelt and his aides have placed even stronger emphasis on retrenchment. Gov. Elmer a. Benson of Minnesota epitomized the majority comment of the governors when he said i Don t see How we could pos Sibly take Over any More of the Load. If we Are forced to do it it May mean bankruptcy for the democratic governor Richard c. Mcmullen of Delaware and gov. George d. Aiken of Vermont. A Republican were the Only Flat dissenters. Years rep. Case of South Dakota inquired if the House could not Appeal to the conferees on the naval appropriation Bill for sufficient savings to provide the Money needed to keep the Camps open.
