Fir*! Doy of 1946 Clear, Quail Hunters Out .For Final Fling
TJe New Year moved into Ada with a moderate bit of celebration here, the most noticeable part bein* blowing of some industrial whistles and popping of some firecrackers.
There were watch parties, dances, gay private parties and. for downtown Ada. a minimum of disturbance.
Baby Bom at 2:05
Earliest birth reported thus far for the year 1946 here was a girl. born at 2:05 a.m. at Valley View hospital to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Morgan of Stonewall. with Dr. Catherine Brydia presiding. Mr. Morgan is a farmer.
The weather was crisp but clear and the first day of the New lear gave quail hunters weather for their final fling at t<iat sport until next season—although the dry weeks preceding have handicapped search for birds.
Tuesday morning one obvious change in the downtown scene was the absence of the big cedar Christmas three that stood for two weeks at Main and Broadway.
The tree was getting somewhat the worse for wear, after being sideswiped by some drivers and occasionally rammed straight on by others.
Police made only three arrests, a1! in connection with two automobiles running into a freight tram standing on tracts across North Broadway.

Hone Shoe Sale Distinction
For instance, the Horse Shoe ranch is having an annual sale this year. From that ranch more females for foundation stock have been sold to breeders in Hereford Heaven that any other breeder in Hereford Heaven.
Hereford Heaven has probably the best breeding stock in the world because Hereford breeders from all sections of the United states and Canada are anxious to Hereford Heaven bred cattle. Cattlemen Looking 'Em Over Some cattlemen have already arrived in Ada and are spending their time looking over the different herds in this area in addi-to ^pect:ng the animals that will be sold this year.

Gen- Walter C. Short that he would have had two precious hours to prepare for an attack if Washington had sent him quickly toe message that came too late.
Short’s statement, included in a transcript of testimony he gave previously in three secret hearings, contradicted in some respects information given the congressional investigators by Adm. Harold R. Stark.
Stark Back Wednesday
Stark, former chief of naval operations, will be in the witness chair tomorrow for additional questioning about his assertion yesterday that Adm. Husband E. Kimmel, 1941 Pearl H a r b p r commander, had plenty of warning to put into effect “all-out security measures.”
When the questioning of Stark is completed, William D. Mitchell, committee counsel, and Mitchell’s staff intend to leave the scene.
But the committee talked yester a£.a* a closed session to Seth W. Richardson, Washington attorney who some members said they hope might take Mitchell s place.
Chairman Barkley (D-Ky) said that Richardson, 65 year old for-mer assistant attorney general under Mitchell, distinctly is not an applicant for the post. Richardson in 1933 was nominated by president Hoover for the eighth circuit court of appeals, but the senate did not act on the nomination.
Short summed up his case this way:

Steel Looks To President
Expects Nap. Nm That Scheduled Strika af Worker* Wait for Board Action
By STERLIN F. GREEN
WASHINGTON. Jan. l.-J.ft-Hie steel industry looked to President Truman today for a n.evf that the scheduled
strike of 700.000 CIO steel workers two weeks hence be postponed while a new fact finding board explores the dispute.
A decision to defer the walkout would keep the nation s basic industry running while the fact finding board, named last night, delves into the union’s $2 daily wage increase demand and while OPA reconsiders the industry’s request for a price increase.
Such a move would be in line with White House labor policy. When he announced a month ago that a fact-finding board would Ptf ?et uP’.Mi** Truman requested that the industry and the steel workers stay on the production lob.
New Appeal Likely
Irater however, the union set the strike date for January 14 in nearly 800 steel, iron ore and aluminum plants. Questioned whether the stav-at-work appeal ££Uld ^newed, Ebon Ayre* White House press aide, said he had no information now.” There weie hints in other government quarters, however, that it might be forthcoming.

Confers With Red Leader
Conversations Believed Ta Hava Covered Wide Banga, Including Truce Bid
CHUNGKING, Jan , I,
Gen. George C. Marshall conferred for two hours today with communist Gen. Chou En-Lai Amid indications the American w;ar leader would accept the role of peacemaker in China’s turbulent internal affairs.
The presidential envoy’s staff declined to disclose the nature or the discussions, but it was believed the conversation covered a wide range — including particularly the communists’ proposal for an unconditional truce in the fighting in north China and the central government's counter i proposal.
i Although the communists previously had presented their side “ 7[oad outline to General Marshall, it was the first ion® taiJc between the two.
The meeting was considered as signifying that the communists are not opposed to the idea of Marshall acting as mediator between them and the central government. It was indicated earli-er by a member of Marshall’s staff that he would accept tho role of peacemaker.
The spokesman said that the presidential envoy obviously could not announce his stand until the communists had replied to the government’s peace proposals. but that it was a “pretty good assumption” that the central government had consulted the American war leader.
Under Generalissimo Chiang ivai-bhek s counter proposals, each side would appoint a representative to confer w ith General Marshall on procedures for cessation of hostilities and restoration of communications in strife torn north China Hie government called also for impartial observers to see that such a truce is kept.
Gen. Chou En-Lai. head of the communist delegation to the forthcoming peace and unity conference, and other communist leaders in Chungking were unavailable for comment on the government’s counter offer It was assumed that the proposal had been sent to Yenan, in Manchuria, for consideration by the party's central executive committee.
