Poultry Grit PM Ready To load Out'
New Plant at Ten-Acre Rock Preparing to Skip Pine Quality Product
‘‘We will be loading, possibly in full swing, by next Monday,” declared Jess Barbre, head of the new Pure Granite Co., manufacturing grit for poultry and building stone from the ‘Ten Acre Rock,” long an abandoned granite quarry 40 miles south of Ada.
W. A. Delaney, Jr., was introduced as the new president of the Chamber of Commerce. George MacRobert, first vice president, presided at today’s meeting of the civic body. Gordon Witherspoon, the new second vice-president, was presented to the membership. Wendell Thomas was introduced as the re-elected treasurer. Elmer Kenison is secretary-manager for the second year.
MacRobert quoted Delaney as having previously said, “No organization can go anywhere or do anything without objectives,” and the program of the new’ officers for 1946 would be announced “in the next few days.”
No Finer Grits
Barbre revealed that there are only two competing manufacturers of poultry grits in the U. S., one in Georgia, the other in North Carolina. But, “no one will make a finer chicken grit than we will.” Before the local raw material was determined to be the proper one, exhaustive laboratory tests were made.
In dealing with poultrymen, Barbre said he is dealing with ‘one of the best organized businesses anywhere,” and added they are fine business men.
The product of the Pure Granite Co., is called “Kackel Grits,” and is manufactured in five sizes for turkeys, hens, pullets, chicks and birds. The product will be sold strictly to jobbers.
Plenty of Granite
The “Ten-Acre Rock” is estimated to hold 20 million tons of granite. The present capacity of the plant is ten carloads daily. •Kackel Grits” is sacked in 100-pound sizes, and loaded 800 sacks to the car.
Orders are on hand from points as distant as California. The location of the plant is reported

Two men have been arrested snd placed in the city jail on investigation charges in connection with the armed robbery of the MAP Grocery, 231 West Twelfth, Tuesday afternoon.
Lester Lanier, store manager, and a cashier could not identity either of the men being held by city police. Both persons said that they could not be sure about the identity of the man who entered the store and took an undisclosed amount of bills.
Police still have some more checking to do before they release the two men or file charges against them. A customer in the store at the time of the robbery will take his turn at identifying the burglar.

Army Allen Release Plan
Eisenhower Directs Release Of Man Not Needed In Occupation Forces
WASHINGTON. Jan. IO.---
The war department under!__
to recast its entire demobilization program today, as pressure mounted from disgruntled GI’s demonstrating overseas.
Pending this revision, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized theater commanders to waive all point score requirements in getting home men not needed in the occupation forces.
At the same time, Gen. Jacob L. Devers, chief of the army ground forces, told the country that public clamor for bringing the boys back immediately is jeopardizing our security and wrecking the morale of men needed to maintain the peace.” Change From Slow-Down The announcement that the army was redrafting its demobilization program came less than a a*ter the war department ordered its demobilization slowdown which touched off the series of GI demonstrations in the Pacific and Europe.
This slow-down order was the first drastic change in demobilization policy since the broad general program was announced after V-E day.
Triers was no hint what lines the new demobilization program would follow, but the army promised that the revised plan would be forthcoming “shortly.” Iteapite^ Eisenhower’s order and the promise of a new demobilization program, increasing dissatisfaction with the entire situation was voiced on capitol hill by some lawmakers returning for the opening session of congress next week.
Senator Says Program Snarled
Senator George A. Wilson TRIO wa) was of the opinion that both army and navy release programs are so snarled that only congressional action can get them untangled.
He told reporters he will propose that congress order the release by April I of all enlisted personnel except volunteers or draftees with less than a year’s service.
Disclosure that a detailed new army demobilization program is in the works was made yesterday by acting Secretary of War Kenneth C. Royal], who released Eisenhower’s cabled directive instructing overseas commanders to expedite the return of surplus personnel regardless of point scores.
This directive from the army chief of staff specified, however, that priority should be given men with the highest scores and the longest service.

LONDON, Jan. IO.——The United Nations assembly, carrying forward the world’s hopes for prevention of an atomic age war, came into being in battle-scared London today and heard a bald warning that it holds in its hands the choice of “life or death” for mankind.

“It is for the peoples of the world, through their representatives, to make their choice between life or death. Let us be clearas to what is oar ultimate aim.
“It is not just the negation cf war, but creation of a w’orid of security and freedom, of a world which is governed by justice and the moral law.”

Each of Us Affected by Steel Problem What Happens May Mean Difference Between Inflation and No Inflation
„ By JAMES MARLOW
WASHINGTON, Jan. IO- -___
Take a cold, long-range look at the steel problem. It affects all of us. What happens there may mean the difference between inflation and no inflation.
It comes down to this; If wages go up prices go up proportionately, then the wage gain is wiped out. Ifs used up in meeting price increases.
Si* weeks ago OPA refused the steel oidustry price increases. But it said then it would take another look at the end of the year to see whether it should change its mind. It said this wras why;
The industry should be entitled to as much profit now as it made in a before-the-war period, 1936-39, even if it meant granting a price increase.
Meanwhile, the CIO steelworkers were demanding an increase of $2 a day in wages, an increase of between 25 and 30 per cent. The Steelmakers said they couldn’t grant a raise without a price boost.
The steelworkers said they
