Worse In 1943
Last of the serious drought was that of 1943 here beginning about June 6; July had 12 days of HJO or above and August had 23 such days with only two traces Booster of rain. That August did what the present one threatens to do— put the finishing touches to a bad farm and livestock situation.
There were no big rams that year until December, with even November registering but a trace.
That year followed an overwet year.
Water, Milk Supplies Ample
And remember the 1934 and 1936 droughts? And the winter drought of 1939? And should the memory bring up the 111 V2 degrees of August, 1943? And of Ada citizens being asked to go water use? And of a feed meaning

They range from the ordinar-iest of horseflesh to the finest among Quarter Horses and privately owned riding animals.
The Quarter Horse show being held in connection with the rodeo this year will vie, for lovers of horses, with the rodeo itself, as the magnificent animals, cream of their kind, go through their paces each afternoon in working competition and then race in short dashes.

The parade of Wednesday—no one knows how many riding clubs and horses will be in it but the number will include many hundreds, and the first full-fledged post war procession will be.a record one.
The cowboy entry list will be at a peak, also, with most of the cleverest and most daring in the country here going after the big prize money — capped by the large steer roping purse which is an annual feature.
Roads from the rodeo grounds, ticket gates, chutes, parking, numerous other details have been completed and now ready for the Grand Entry and opening rodeo program of Wednesday night.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12. (/P)
—Stepping into the spotlight yielded by senate war investigators, the Slaughter committee of the house set out today to dig day is I deeply into the administration’s a half handling of war surpluses.
The special inquiry group headed by defeated Rep. Roger C. Slaughter (D-Mo) summoned as its first witness Benjamin F. Fields, Washington promoter and war contracts broker who made a brief appearance before the senate committee one month ago today.
Fields at that time had been accused by Senator Mitchell (W-Wash) of offering the senator a

WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 ♦ Pf
With 99 witnesses demanding
to be heard, the all powerful decontrol board today opened four days of hearings on whether to I clamp back scores of lifted price lids.
Speaking for the congressional* , Iv created board. Chairman Roy L. Thompson promised a "fresh, unbiased viewpoint” that will result iii decisions "free from the influence of any government agency.”
Grain Is Today’s Issua Specifically at issue today is the future of OPA ceilings on grain, and even before the hearings got formally underway spokesmen for farmers and the grain trade raised a cry of impending "black markets" if con trois are restored.
Twenty witnesses were on tap for today. Tomorrow 23 others will take up the issue of price ceilings on livestock and meat. Wednesday will be devoted to soybeans and cottonseed with another 20 slated to testify. Thirty-six have asked to be heard on the subject of dairy products before the hearings close Thursday night.
In agreeing finally last month to revive OPA until next June, congress specified that those products were to remain free of price ceilings at least until Aug list 20 Unless the decontrol board directs otherwise, the ceil mgs that were last in effect will be reimposed on August 21 Farm Bureau Head First First witness on the crowded
Calendar was President Edward O’Neal of the American Farm Bureau Federation, who was allotted 30 minutes to tell why fanners want a speedy end to price controls.
O’Neal, as he had before congressional committees, offered a mass of data and charts showing J estimates for bumper feed and food crops during the present season. The farm organization leader said the free market is the place to tix prices for grains and ; all other agricultural products.
The predictions of * black mar -kets” if grain ceilings are restored came from the next two-| scheduled w itnesses. II e r in a n Fakler. vice president of the Millers’ National Federation, and Weston B Grimes, appearing for (’argill. Inc. Both made the claim in bi icfs presented in advance of oral testimony.
Judgment. Not Facts
On the board with Thompson are Daniel W. Bell, Washington hanker and former under secretary of the treasury, and George M. Mead. Dayton, O., industrialist and pulp paper manufacturer.
The hearings are being conducted in the huge marble-walled caucus room of the senate office building, scene of many headline catching investigations.
! But unlike most other sessions in the vast chamber, witnesses for this week’s hearings are not being sworn Thompson said board members agreed «>n thi-> informal procedure because their decisions in us I be based in part upon facts and in pat upon "questions of judgment.”

Military patrols, declining to produce* any written ban, prohibited photographers from making pictures of the scene. Authorities continued silent.

County Attorney Olin Van Zandt, who questioned the woman, said it appeared unlikely she was involved but that officers were checking all passible leads.
Officers were led to the fortune teller by a Denison man who had asked her the location of Mrs. Kreager so. he said, he could collect the $1,000 reward offered for finding her. He was arrested la-Fmmctt b*r by police Captain Lewis Winchester of Denison for intoxication. His story was not investigated and he was released but rearrested for questioning Saturday night.
Van Zandt said the woman described with considerable accuracy the location of a shack near the well and told him Mrs. Kreager was being held in the shack by a woman and would be poisoned and her body thrown in the well.
Attempts are being made to determine if Mrs. Kreager was poisoned.
