Decision Soon By Army On Draft Holiday Command Checking Need* Against Lack Of Enough Voluntaars Far Months Ahead By EDWARD E. BOMAR WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—(A3)— An army decision is expected this week on whether to resume the draft in January after a two-month holiday—a step manpower advisors are reported to favor. Officials said recommendations are in the hands of Secretary Patterson and General Dwight D. Eisenhower, chief of staff, awaiting action. Those advisers favoring a call on selective service for a quota next month are understood to contend it would spur volunteer recruiting as well as supplement it. Latest reports show volunteer recruiting took an upward turn in the third week of November, after a steady decline for more than a month. Recruits, including regular who re-enlisted or extended shorter terms of service to three years, totalled 5,006, compared with 4,444 the previous week. Below Expectations But for the entire month a total of only about 20,000 was expected, representing little more than half the 37,000 monthly fixed by the war department as a minimum requirement of the regular army. It was to determine the recruiting trend that the draft decision has been postponed since the October quota of 25,000 was unexpectedly cancelled, when on half filled, along with the November quota of 15,000. Selective service was informed at that time that there would be no more calls for men from the war department at least until after the year’s end. The action was laid to a temporary state or army overstrength which has since been reduced by discharges. It left selective service with a backlog of qualified registrants between 19 and 25 considered ample to meet renewed monthly calls of 25,000 the first quarter of 1947. No Hint Given Officials are giving no hint whether the army will ask extension of the draft beyond March 31. That question is wrapped up with the war department’s announced intention of pressing in the new congress for universal military training on grounds that some form of compulsion is imperative to meet needs of the regular army, the National Guard and organized reserve units. If extension should be asked, officials have said the war department would propose that the draft terminate with the start of universal training. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Tuesday Nigh! Santa Claus is coming to town and is expected to arrive in Ada about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the corner of Main and Broadway where a large celebration has been planned by the Ada Junior Chamber of Commerce. The Jaycees spent Sunday decorating Ada for the Christmas season, but they lacked four hours work completing the task, according to Erwin Hovis, chairman of the Jaycee Christmas program. Will Be Broadcast All of the decorations may not be completed for the big event Tuesday night, but nevertheless the party will go on as scheduled. Thirty minutes of the program will be broadcast over the Oklahoma Network of radio stations including KADA of Ada. The Jaycees installed thousands of gaily colored lights that will be turned on at the Tuesday night affair. The Ada Christmas program has obtained state and nationwide recognition and many cities in middle-western states are following the pattern of the Ada affair. Band And Pep Squad Ada High school band and pep squad will be on hand to help the Jaycees welcome Santa Claus. Participating in the Yule season opening program will be Jaycee President Trice Broadriek, Mayor Frank Spencer and Rev. Mitchell Epperson. There will be Christmas music played by the band, community singing led by Harold Graham, director of Ada High school band. Special guests of the evening will be the children from the Baptist Orphanage who will be brought to Ada in a special bus. Judge Refuses To Admit Into Trial News Reel Record of Lewis Remark Molotov Next After Stalin! Publicity Stirs Speculation He's Being Groomed For * Top Spot Buildup By ED CREACH LONDON, Dec. 2.—An unexpected new publicity buildup for Soviet foreign Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov in the govern-ment-cont; oil I Russian prest set tongues wagging throughout Europe today in the popular game of trying to pick Prime 7"' ter S' Rn’s successor. Many diplomats and others who had not regarded Molotov as thv most likely candidate were inclined to guess again after Moscow newspapers, reporting the 56-voar-old Russian diplomat’s election as an honorary member of the Soviet Academy of Science, lauded him lengthily as Slalin’s closest assistant. This almost unprecedented singling out of a Stalin deputy for public praise came less than a month after Stalin, 67 years old and by some accounts in poor health, failed for the second consecutive year to take part in the recent nationwide celebration of the Russian re 1ution anniversary. To some students of Soviet affairs it looked s through Stalin might be stepping down, or perhaps be gradually relinquishing his powers, nd as though Molotov was perhaps being groomed for advancement. Molotov, undoubtedly the Russian leader best known to the western world by virtue of his prominence in big power deliberations at London, Paris and New York, has been a life-long worker for the Communist party and is one of eight vice chairman of Russia’s council of ministers, jf which Stalin is chairman. Should Molotov succeed Stalin it would surprise those who have been “backing” such other leading officials as Georgi M. Malenkov, Andrei Andreyev, Lavrenti P. Bena, A. A. Zhdanov, A. I. Mikoyan, and L. M. Kaganovich. Malenkov, 45, became a vice chairman of the council of ministers only Lst October, although he had been a member of the Communist party’s powerful Politburo since 1941. Often described as a “master in the art of power,” he holds a position similar to that occupied by Stalin when Nikolai Lenin’s death in 1924 precipitated a struggle for power. Temperature Drops lo 26 Here, lowest Yet For This Fall That it would be cold overnight no one doubted when the wind stayed cold all day Sunday. However, the low of 26 degrees without any real cold-wave indica* tions was a bit of a surprise. Heavy frost gave visible demonstration of the cold. That was the lowest recorded this fall. It represents a downward sweep from Saturday’s warm 70 degree maximum. The temperature tumbled to 38 by Sunday morning, moved up to 6*5 during the afternoon, then slid to 26 overnight. According to The Associated Press, sub-freezing temperatures were recorded at all Oklahoma cities which reported to the \ eather bureau today, with the 23 degrees at Ponca City and Waynoka the lowest. Tulsa had a low of 24 degrees. At the Oklahoma City airport 25 was registered, two degrees lower than at the weather observatory in the city. Other minimums: Ardmore 28, Elk City 24, Enid 25, Fort Sill 27, Guymon and McAlester 28. Fair and warmer was the forecast. U S. To Use Pipelines Krug Says Government Flans To Start Natural Gas On Way to Northeast WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—(ZP)— Secretary of the Interior Krug said today the government plans immediate movement of natural gas through the Big Inch and Little Inch pipelines to help relieve the coal shortage. “We expect to begin movement of natural gas in the next five or six days, at the rate of 50,000,000 cubic feet a day,” Krug told the house surplus property committee. Within the next 45 days, Krug said, gas can be moving at the rate of 150,000,000 cubic feet a day oyer the 1,500-mile war-built pipe lines from the southwest to the eastern seaboard. “The gas can be a help” in the fuel shortage caused by the coal strike, Krug said, “but it is not the answer.” He testified that even the movement of 150,000.000 cubic feet of gas a day would amount only to the fuel equivalent of 6,-000 tons of coal while the normal daily production exceeds 2,000,-000 tons. The secretary said the Tennessee Gas and Transmission company will operate the pipelines under a lease during the emergency period. “This morning letters went to the War Assets Administration and the Federal Power Commission,” he told the committee, “requesting that in the light of the emergency the Big and Little Inch Pipe Lines be made available for movement of natural gas immediately.” He said the Federal Power Commission will rule on the manner of distributing it. Krug, a leader in the government’s struggle with John L. Lewis in the coal crisis, gave no hint of when he expects the coal strike to end. Apparently planning a long drawn out battle with Lewis he said “every possible conservation of fuel” will be undertaken. (heck (ahind On (lining War Powers Republicans Seeking Information On What Can Ba Terminated WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—(ZP)_ Republicans are polling President Truman’s cabinet on the question of which emergency war powers can be safely cut off and which should continue. Senator Wiley (R.-Wis.) said today he has sent the inquiries to cabinet members and the head of the Veterans Administration to prepare the way for quick action by the new congress to terminate all possible war powers and controls. “Some people, without thinking, are telling us to decontrol, get rid of everything,” he told reporters. “But we want to be sure we cut off suckers and not the tap roots of these trees. We want to be certain what we are pruning.” Anticipating his election as chairman of the senate judieiarv committee, Wiley sent identical letters to the cabinet members and Veterans Administrator Omar Bradley asking a statement on: 1. “Which wartime and emergency powers of the president currently apply to his cabinet department, 2. “Which powers in his opinion can be terminated and why, and when, 3. “Which in his opinion cannot be terminated and for how long does he believe it is advisable that they be kept in force.” Cool Strike May Idle Million By End Of Week, Steel Output Fading PITTSBURGH, Dec. 2. LD— Lack of fuel today idled over 104.000 persons—in addition to 400.000 miners—as more and more coal consuming industries shut down in the soft coal crisis with the prospect of sharply rising unemployment ahead. The long holiday weekend tended to hold down unemployment hut twin hazards of coal shortages and dwindling supplies of steel promised to strike hard blows this week with possibilities of 1,000,000 being laid off at week’s end. Steel ingot production in the Youngstown district stood at 35 per cent of capacity, compared with 91 per cent two weeks ago. Only 35 of 83 open hearths were operating and nine of 25 blast furnaces. None of the area’s three Bessemer converters was working. Unofficial estimates put loss of wages at more than $1,000,000. Paid Crews Laid Off Forty switching crews were laid off by the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie railroad in Ohio while the Pennsylvania furloughed 20 men and three crews. The Erie railroad sent members of six crew's home. In New York state, the Schenectady plant of General Electric laid off about 250 porcelain department workers with one spokesman predicting “s I o w strangulation.” Heat provided by gas from coking ovens in Provo. Utah, was to be cut off today in about 1,-000 homes. Steel mill lay-offs in Utah brought idleness to 105 workers. Others were on a three-day week. Railroad furloughs totaled 350 and the Brigham Young university closed until oil burning heating equipment can be installed. Colorado reported dealers’yard stocks exhausted. At Palisade. Colo., members of the UMW local 1772 indicated their approval of the work stoppage by ousting a president who said he was ready to negotiate independent contracts with three operators. Pitt Area Hard Hit Unemployment of almost a quarter of a million was predicted for the Pittsburgh district by industrial spokesmen who said the coal reserve has dwindled from 110.000 tons to between 75,-000 and 80,000. The steel industry received a new jolt in a Pittsburgh address by Philip Murray, president of the CIO and the CIO s United Steel Workers union, who said steel workers will expect substantial wage boosts during 1947, a year Murray predicted would be the greatest steel year in the nation’s history. Murray predicted steel profits next year would reach $125,000,-000 and declared:    “Therefore the industry is in a position to make these increases.” Six Wreck Injured Improving Today Two To Be Released From Hospital Tuesday; All Painfully Bruised k.
