The main portion of the hotel was totally destroyed in disastrous fire which broke out on the night of January M. The original portion of the old hotel, opened in 1903, was con- sumed in the flames. The four-i story annex, built shortly after the original building was constructed, was saved, Determined But it looks as if the annex is Hsclf determined to burn. The fire early Monday morning was the third alarm the Sulphur Fire Department has answered at the annex since the main building was destroyed. The old building collopsed in of rubble, which still smoulders, and the fire Sunday morning evidently spread into the annex from this source. Flames Spread Flames raced up lumber and flooring in the rubble and spread into the roof of the annex. Members of Sulphur's fine vol- unteer fire department controlled j the blaze but not until the roof had been burned away and the upper story gutted. The alarm was sounded at a. m. and by 3 a. m. the blaze was under control. The fire, how- ever, continued to smoulder and still broke out sporadically. spokesman for the Sulphur Police Department said flames still con- tinued to erupt at intervals on Monday morning. No Estimate Carl Thetford, owner of the old structure, was at the fire Mon- day morning, ruefully surveying the smoking ruins. He said the annex contained rooms and apartments." He could make no immediate estimate of additional damages. The bath house, just to the east of the an iiex, was not harmed by the flames. The Davis Fire Department was summoned. When the fire first broke out, it was fanned by a brisk south wind. Flying sparks ignited a building to the north and several grass fires were started. All were quickly extinguished. Possible Plans Thetford said he was anxious to complete final settlements on the old structure so that it could be leveled. "The annex had lots of good lumber." he said, "and it also contained plenty of valuable fur- niture." Thetford indicated con- sidered construction of a new mo- tor hotel on the site of the orig- inal building. Water Faucets Well, they'rr not exactly like the tap on your kitchen jink, at that. The men here art assembling one of severs! hundred valves thai- will be spotted up and down the Oklahoma City-Atoka water line for control pur- poses. There are valves to let air out of the line, or to let it in, to equalize the pres- sure; and there are valvei to let the water on or out of the line. To give you an idea of the magnitude of the thing, the valve the men are working on is one of 208 of its type that will be needed. George Pilkerton, equipment superintendent for OKAtoka Constructors, says about one-third of them have been received at the yard on North Broadway. They're as- sembled there at the yard, then hauled out to the field for installation. In the 'pho- to below, Pilkerton himself (he's the one on the l-e f t) takes a hand at screwing the last piece on one of the as- semblies.

The West seemed certain to turn down the proposal, though a later summit session seems a definite possibility. The Soviet news agency Tass announced Khrushchev's plan to- day. The proposal was contained in a letter to President Kennedy- delivered at the State Department Sunday morning. In the letter Khrushchev pro- posed that the 18-nation disarma- ment to lie- Single Subject It was understood that the ses- sion would be confined to the single subject of disarmament, based on a set of principles agreed to by the United States and the Soviet Union at the United Nations last September.

Bodies of nine men were found with the wreckage in a mountain- ous area 80 miles northeast of Saigon.
