Delaney Assails Demo Policies Af Home, Abroad , Ada Oil Man Tell* GOF Thera Must Be Forthright Leadership in Government _ Bv JOHN H. BOOKER TULSA, Okla., Jan. 19.— Lashing sharply at what he described as “cunning, intrigue and appeasement” in domestic and world affairs. W. A. (Gus) Delaney tonight told Oklahoma Republican leaders that there must be ‘‘forthright leadership in government.” Speaking before more than 300 party members assembled for the annual Alexander Hamilton day banquet, Delaney, Ada oil man, assailed what he called lack of 'full truth from day to day,” between executive branches of the government and the people. ‘ If representative republican government continues in America. there must be forthright leadership in government and honesty and integrity in its administration under the law and within the limitations of the constitution.” he said. High on the speaker’s list of targets for barbed criticism came nation-wide strikes, the labor situation, foreign and domestic conferences on world affairs and fact-finding boards. The latter he assailed as lacking in power bridge and could not stop when he saw that he did not have time or room to pass the truck because of an oncoming truck, investigating officers said. Fore and Aft He got far enough around the truck he was attempting to pass that when he hit the oncoming truck, a Wilson and Company vehicle driven by Elvert Pitts of Oklahoma City, headon the oilfield truck hit his car from behind. A fourth car driven by R. W. Tilley of Ada was following behind the Wilson truck and was involved in the accident, but was uninjured as were the drivers of I the two trucks. Smith was thrown through the door of his car, went over the top of the oilfield truck and landed between the banister of the bridge and the right rear wheel of the truck. Damage to Vehicle Heavy Considerable property damage was done to both the trucks and cars. The car drive by Smith was almost totally demolished. , Traffic was blocked at the bridge for about 45 minutes or until two wreckers could be summoned to clear the wreckaj and get the vehicles off the hig way. Several hundred persons saw the wrecked automobiles before they were moved. The Saturday afternoon traffic both to and from Ada was heavy and the number of persons looking over the accident w'as increased as traffic piled up. Members of the highway patrol who are stationed in Ada, were quick to arrive at the scene of the accident and soon had the situation under control. After the wreckage was cleared, they took charge of traffic and directed it until the long lines of waiting motorists had resumed their journeys. eral assembly of the United Nations, on behalf of the Iranian, government, have the honor to request to you, in accordance with the terms of article 35 (I) of the charter, to bring the matter to the attention of the security council so that the council may investigate the situation and recommend appropriate terms of settlement” Will Supply Facts The letter said the delegation would assist the council by supplying a full statement or facts.
