Bmus, manager, led the way for the serpentine ride of the Grand Entry. It required a dozen ‘posts’ along each side of the arena to get the long line of riders moving properly. No one was happier to be in the Grand Entry than George Parrish, former secretary of the Ada club, who couldn’t refrain from an occasional delighted ‘yip’. George was considerably worsted by a German shell in Italy, spent many weary months in hospitals, finally got home and back in the saddle.

Sonny Merritt and some others are lust out of service and are still ‘rusty’ with their rodeo skill, but are going after everything with undiminished enthusiasm. PARADE AND CROWD are record-breakers—Wednesday’s great Ada Rodeo parade, part of which is shown in the picture above, had 998 horses, many more riders for many were riding double and was seen by an immense throng of spectators from almost out to the starting point on east Main downtown Ada around on Twelfth, back through downtown Main and then north on Broadway.

The newly installed parking meters in Ada seem to have the citizens and rodeo visitors befuddled. By 9:20 a m. Thursday, over 200 police tickets had been given out on overparking. Some 150 of the tickets were that given out from 12 noon to 6 p.m. con- Wednesday, which is only six hours, and no tickets were written during the gigantic rodeo parade. Another 50 tickets were given out Thursday morning and the policeman checking the meters hadn’t covered half the town. Byrnes Tells Of War Cost Refutes References To Enriching Through Wor, Offers U. S. Friendship Bv WILLIAM B. KING PARIS, Aug. 15, bP>—-U. S Secretary of Slate James F. Byrnes, in an address patently aimed at Soviet Russia, told the peace conference today that economic treaties concluded in contradiction of the Potsdam agcee-ment would lead to “enslavement and exploitation.” At the same time Byrnes took exception to Russian allegations -—made during the debate on Italy s statement to the conference— ' enriched war. “Now what great pou’er enriched itself during the war,” Byrnes asked. “I certainly know of none. I hope he (the Soviet spokesman) was not referring to the United States.” Record Parade Has 998 Horses and 25 Clubs, Huge Crowds Thirty-five minutes were required for 998 horses and floats to pass Main and Broadway in the biggest Ada Rodeo parade ever to march here—seen by the largest throng of spectators, too, estimated from 6,000 to 8,500. Under bright sunshine the 25 riding clubs made their way west on Main, and on reaching Broadway turned south to Twelfth, going west, then north again and coining up two blocks to turn north on Broadway. The new route made unnecessary the hitherto situation of mounts having to cross through traffic at Rennie. Crowds Pleased There was unflagging interest from the time youngsters started their cry of “Its starting,” until the last rider had passed.

S. Paid Heavily Byrnes declared that the w^ar eost the United States $400,000,-000,000 “loaned by the American public,” but was “seeking no recompense.” “Before America was attacked Franklin D. Roosevelt announced that the United States would be the symbol of democracy,” he added. “America has asked for no recompense other than the freedoms she sought for all mankind. America seeks no territories or recompense.” Byrnes added that the United States was willing to help in the economic rebirth of any nation. He spoke after Foreign Jon Masaryk of Czechoslovakia had told the conference that Hungarian Foreign Minister Janos ly allowed parade-watchers to use their higher vantage points from which to view the procession without being in the hot sunshine. There was a sprinkling of parasols and a lot more persons who looked as if they wished they had brought some such protection. The wailing sirens of police motorcycle and highway patrol car preceded the colors, then came the big fire truck almost hidden by a swarm of boys. Victory Day Float Impressive The Victory Day float was an impressive arrangement of a casket on green, surrounded by men and women in the uniforms they wore during the war. Pauls Valley and Ada school bands furnished martial marching music. Bob Crosby was his jovial self, neatly roping a teen-age^irl as lie turned south on Broadway. The clowns were there, up to their usual frolicsome tricks. Texas Represented And Texas was there, the Dallas club and Mounted Quadrille Mrs. Plez Bevers, 53, of Route 2, Stratford, was critically m-eastward I .lured about H IO p.m. Wednesday in the headon Collision of a pickup truck and an automobile three miles east of Stratford. She is undergoing treatment at Val ley View hospital for compound leg fractures and internal injuries. Highway patrolmen who investigated the accident said that tin' truck was coming toward Ada and the Bevers car. driven by Mrs. Bevers, was going west. Kenneth Woodruff, Lindsay, 25, was driving the truck. He is a civil service employe of Washington, D. (’. With him were a sister, Bernice Woodruff, and Jewell Tucker, both of Lindsay. In the Bevers car we re also Mary Fowler and Mary and Ann Bryan. Only Mrs. Bt vers was seriously hurt, the others suffering minor injuries. Patrolmen report that Woodruff was driving fairly fast, his truck striking a rough place in the road and going out of control, swerving across the highway and meeting the Bevers car head on. Woodruff is under $500 bond on charges of reckless driving. proached 1.000 persons, there to watch the halter classes of the Oklahoma Quarter Horse association. Then, in the afternoon, a large crowd of fans was on hand for the opening afternoon of the action classes—the roping, reining and cutting work of the fine horses was interesting but the races really evoked high en-thussiasm. More Than 200 Horses Here More than 200 quarter horses are here from three states, including various show and state champions, all after the prize money. Anyone wanting to know what a quarter horse looks like—and should look like—can find out by attending the show this week. The sleek, trim animals are put through their paces daily in the competition f o r winning places on quarter horse type. Ideal Working Ranch Type I he afternoons through Saturday offer the thrilling races to climax the ‘working’ part, for the quarter horse is the idea that evolved from the coupon}. a sturdy animal that can turn follow, start quickly and move fa t for short distance in the way ranch work requires. Saturday morning brings the 40-head consignment sale. The admission is free to the Friday morning halter judging, with tickets SI 25 for Friday and Saturday afternoon racing shows. ’29.8 23.0 *>9 o 73.0 23.8 19.8 *37.6 20.2 34.6 16.0 Sonny Merritt, Federal, Wyo.

Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov listened, intently as Byrnes spoke in a firm voice, occasionally gesturing with one hand. The American secretary praised both Italy and Greece and objected to recent speeches by Russian and other Slav delegates giving the ‘’impression that other countries were more democratic than Italy because they have harmonized their views with the Russians.” Cries of “hear, hear” sounded from the benches of English speaking delegates when Byrnes referred to Italy’s new democratic government.” There was a clear reference to Russia when Byrnes said that the draft treaties “permit ever y every country to exploit its own resources and to allow the free flow of goods between countries.” There was a ringing aplause when he said, “an equal open door policy will not cause exploitation but hinder it.” Vishinsky Criticizes Byrnes Soviet Delegate Andrei Vishinsky mildly critized Byrnes, declaring the secretary of state “carried the discussion backward A mysterious submerged val-and not forward,” then launched tey was discovered between Eng- ,    ,    ~    —--1    l*md    and    Europe    in    the    North (Continued on Page 2 Column I) ; Sea.

LON DO NBLIT Z EDAREAS NOW ARE PLAYGROUNDS LONDON—(ZP)—Some London areas w'here German bombs turned whole rows of houses into debris have been cleared and transformed into playgrounds. Mothers working a 30 - hour J w'eek leave their youngsters at a ; charge of 20 cents a day. The children play from early morning until sunset with swings, see-saws rocking horses and rag dolls— still not easy to get in post-war Britain. TRIBl TE to the war dead of World War II was paid in Wednesday s parade by a float prepared by local veterans’ organizations for the occasion of the first anni vers: rv of V-J Day, when Japan gave up. A casket decorated with sprays of flowers, surrounded by an honor guard composed of uniformed individuals representing the various branches of military service, called attention, as it moved along on its float between spectator-banked streets to the many joung Americans who did not return from war but surrendered their In es lighting for America.

Police officials had another quiet day Wednesday with on!' three arrests. Two were alleged car thieves, w ho were turned over to the county, and one was a drunk driver who posted a $20 appearance bond. Three minor accidents, two of which occurred in the residential section, resulted in no casualties, and no other misdemeanors were reported to police other than the parking meter tickets which flew thick and fast. .. * Read The News Classified Ads I Fast Calves, Tough Steers Put Cowboys To Best in Efforts Broncs Among Roughest Ever Here; Even Veteran Cowboys Find Going Rough Just call it 12.000 people* That’s th** seating capacity cf til** stands at the Ada Rodeo and all of the scats were taken f. r th* opening show Wednesday night, along with numerous other spectators w ho sat or stood along the sidelines.
