Slate's Broomcorn Crop Down in 1945
Almost 50 Per Cent Below 1^44, Weather Blamed
OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 4.— & Oklahoma's 1945 broomcorn crop of 10.500 tons fell almost 50 per cent short of the 1944 harvest, the statistician for the U.S. department of agriculture reported today. But it still led all oth-er Colorado was second
with 9.900 tons.
In 1944, 20,400 tons W’ere produced in Oklahoma. This year’s low production was blamed on abnormally cool, wet weather at planting time and unusual rain and wind storms during the growing season.
Because of unfavorable spring weather many acres intended for broomcorn were planted late, were replanted one or more tlJ™?s or were not planted at all.
74.000 acres harvested in 1945 were 32 per cent fewer than the 109.000 harvested the year before and 22 per cent below the 10-year average.
The yield of 285 pounds an con\Dare* with 375 pounds in 3 944 and a 10-year average of 2i6 pounds. Qualitv of the 1945 orusn was reported fairly good to good.

Member of His Staff Says He Ordered Infamous Bataan Death March
MANILA, Jan. 4. —(.Pi Lt.
Gen. Masahru Homma himself gave the order for the infamous death march that killed thousands on the agony-strewn route from Bataan to Camp O’Donnell April, 1942. one of his staff officers testified at Homma’s war-crimes trial today.
o*^nd n*ith?r Homma nor his staff cared what happened to the emaciated American and Filipino prisoners, the witness. Lt. Col. Michio Kitayama. asserted. Kitayama, a communications officer at Homma’s 14th imperial army headquarters, said he saw the march from several successive vantage points along the road.
The once-arrogant Homma listened meekly to the testimony.
Kitayama’s responses to prosecution questions did not swerve from a previously-recorded deposition in which he asserted that the Japanese attitude toward prisoners was not one of too great concern.”
“This prevailed all through the (Japanese) army,” he explained, because Homma’s men were busy reducing Corregidor and because ii- e Japanese belief that any soldier who surrenders has committed a shameful act and deserves punishment.
Homma as commander of the Japanese army bore responsibil-lty “for the w-hole action of his men in carrying out his orders, Kitayama said in reply to one Question. But Japanese law', he added, does not consider him as criminally liable for their misdeeds.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 4.-LP)-The labor department forecasts that, if mediation and fact-finding fail to avert a threatened strike m the meat packing industry, government seizure will be a last resort.
This was made known last night by Edgar L. Warren, chief of the federal conciliation service, after a late afternoon conference with Secretary of Labor Sehwellenbach.
Warren told reporters that the labor department will not recommend seizure of the meat packing plants, but that such a proposal might come from Secretary of Agriculture Anderson. On Wednesday Anderson said that the government could not permit a meat tie-up.

Blood Lines Important
What’s all this talk about Ruperts and Domino and Hazlett, with maybe some remarks about Tone and Bocaldo?
Well, there are certain major strains that have been develooed among the finest Hereford beef cattle of America, and certain great animals have so helped establish top types in their descendants that their lines carry their names.
And those names mean a lot to a prospective buyer of an expensive animal.
The well versed Hereford men can look at an animal and point out differences in color, in shortness of neck and so on that the average outsider hadn’t noticed, but each characteristic being found in the descendants of some great sire.
Let it rain, the ‘fans’ will be dry at the Hereford Association sale at the Armory north of Ada Friday night. Inside the spacious building bleachers have been set up to take care of 800 persons.

And Ada people who can’t get away to the ranch sales are invited to be at the Association sale at the Armory Friday night or the Horse Shoe Ranch sale of Saturday night in the same setting. ^
Navy Hearing End OI AloN Search
Has Boon Combing Thousands of Islands, Atolls For Missing Mon
PEARL HARBOR. Jan. 4—UP) —The navy is nearing the end of one of its greatest manhunts—a fruitless search of the thousands of islands and atolls that stud the Pacific for missing men of the armed forces.
Specially trained parties, operating from destroyers and small amphibious craft, have been ransacking the out-of-the-way places of the Pacific for men who vanished during the war and who might have made it to land.
On five islands they found the graves of allied fliers whose planes crashed or evidence that the fliers met death, but no survivors. The parties have questioned natives and Japanese military personnel in addition to making a painstaking search.

Truman served notice that the government will provide them if enterprises cannot.
The chief executive gave a fly-
ergency housing expediter, Wilson W. Wyatt, Jr., with a promise broadcast to the nation last night that Wyatt has a his disposal . every agency of the government and every resource of the government.”
Wyatt, former mayor of Louisville, Ky., was barely settled in new.quarters at the office of war mobilization and reconversion when Mr. Truman made his first •fireside chat” report to the people.
In it, he named housing as the “most difficult problem” among the three major elements of the standard of living—food, cloth mg and shelter.
The New Year will bring peak food production, Mr. Truman predicted, and satisfactorily output of apparel, “but in housing the situation is diferent.”
Emphasizing that 5,000,000 ad ditional homes are “urgently needed—now” the president noted that the biggest pre-war year’s construction produced fewer than a ^million dwellings.
“It is clear therefore,” he added, that this is an emergency problem which calls for an emergency method of solution. We must utilize the same imagination, the same determination that back in 1941 enabled us to raise our sights to overcome the Nazi and Japanese military might.”
(Private building organizations have estimated that the construction industry cannot provide more than 500,000 new homes thisyear, 750,000 in 1947, and 1,-000.000 in 1948.)
Mr. Truman said his 5,000.000 figure did not include replacement of millions of sub-standard dwellings in cities and on farms which ultimately will have to be replaced.
Stolen Pune 1$ Found, (ash Gout
Wor Bonds, Valuable Papa™, Endorsed Check Recovered for Owner
A black purse stolen from the office of Fred Andrews, local attorney, was recovered Tuesday near the railroad tracks on North Broadway. Nine dollars in cash was the only item missing from the purse.
Andrews said that she had
lonalist, terrorist and militarist groups or societies and to oust from public office and influence persons who “deceived and misled the people of Japan into embarking on world conquest.”
The directive picked up where the war criminal lists left off.
The new move makes the first incision into encrusted bureaucrats and politicians controlling the government. The consternation in public offices probably wil be matched by the people s applause.
Reveals Allied Impatience
The new orders serve notice of allied impatience with Japanese efforts to rid themselves of personages and organizations instrumental in the militarist era. Erotic societies, such a* the Black Dragon, supposedly have been dissolved. But the Japanese press reports at least eight of more than 30 current political parties are led by former rightists. °
Tile first immediate effect of the orders will be to disqualify dozens of the strongest candidates from old line parties form coming national elections. This will widen the field for the indepen-extensiveness of political machines opposing them. It will minimize the hold over influence of the Tojo diet."
fully expected the Japanese to come back promptly after the Pearl Harbor attack and called desperately for more fighter planes and anti-aircraft guns to meet the anticipated second assault.
This information went into the record along with the word that on that fatal Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, the navy flew a 10-plane patrol in just the opposite direction from which the Japanese task force was advancing.
Report Hitherto Secret
The source of these details was the hitherto secret report the late Secretary of the Navy Knox made to President Roosevelt soon after his return from a flying trio to the scene of the disaster.
Senator Ferguson (R-Mich), who obtained the report from navy files, said it differed from the one made public at the time.
Admiral Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operations in 1941, told the committee that he had never seen the Knox report to Mr. Roosevelt until today. He said Knox had filled him in on some details in conversations.
Knox told Mr. Roosevelt that both the commanders at Pearl Harbor. Admiral Husband E Kimmel and Maj. Gen. Walter C. Short, were completely surprised.
Third Wave Turned Bark
Other points of the Knox report included:
1. Nothing but “ineffective machine gun fire” met the first of three waves of attacking Japanese planes, but the third wave was turned back.
2. American radio and other equipment were recovered from the wreckage of Japanese planes. One had a Lewis gun of 1920 vintage.
3. Knox attributed the lack of adequate fighter plane strength on Oahu before the war to diversion of aircraft to the British, Chinese and the Russians.

Congress returns January 14 from its holiday adjournment.
"Unless we can soon meet the job of obtaining full production and employment at home.” Mr, Truman asserted, “we shall face serious consequences. They will be serious not only in what they mean to thfe American people as such, but also in what they can do to our position as a leader among the nations of the world.” Therefore, in this “year of decision,” Mr. Truman turned to "the most powerful pressure group in the world”—the American people—“the great mass of our citizens who have Ho special interests, whose interests are only the interests of the nation as a whole.”
Not All Promises Kept The president expressed deep concern over present and threatened strikes in the auto, steel, electrical and meat packing industries. declared that war-end promises of cooperation from members of congress, industry', labor and farm groups **have not all been kept,” and concluded: “We cannot shirk leadership in the post war world. The problems of our economy will not b« solved by timid men, mistrustful of each other We cannot face 1946 in a spirit of drift or irresolution.” In his address, Mr. Truman said that of equal importance with settlement of management-labor disputes is the question of keeping prices on an even keel.
