Elderly Man Burned To Death as Flames Destroy Home of Son
A. A. Jester, 76, Apparently Failed to Try to Go
On Out After Being Led to Door of Biasing House
The partially charred body of A. A. Jester, 76, was removed from the home of his son, W. C. Jester, 918 West Sixth, early Wednesday morning after the house in which he died was almost totally destroyed by fire. Mrs. W. C. Jester and her granddaughter, Jean Smith, 3, were in Breco hospital Wednesday morning suffering from second degree burns.
Firemen were called to the W
Funeral Here For Three Fire Victims
Mrs. Odelle Forehand Watkins, Two Children Died In Kansas City Blaze Sunday
Funeral services will be conducted from the Criswell Funeral chapel Thursday at 3 p.m. for Mrs. Alice Odelle Watkins and her two children, Nancy Lorene Tarver and Robert Leon Tarver, who were burned to death Sunday morning in a Kansas City, Mo., apartment house fire that started about 5 a.m.
Mrs. Watkins, the former Miss Odelle Forehand, lived in Pontotoc county most of her life and was graduated from Allen High school in 1941. Both of her children were born in Ada.
Among Ten Who Lost Lives
The three were among IO persons who were burned to death in the Kansas City fire, which was the most serious fire over the nation during the past week-end.
The two children were the only children of Mrs. Watkins.
The Watkins family was in bed when the fire started; they were among 70 persons living "in the building that was destroyed by flames that started from some matches in a closet.
Cut Off From Fire Escape
The family lived in rooms at the rear of the third floor. They cut. off from the hallway and the fire escape.
Watkins said he climbed onto the ledge of a window, stood upright and called for help. Firemen raised a ladder to the window and a fireman climbed up to assist Watkins when he did riot immediately start down the ladder.
He was led down the ladder, but it was only after he was on the ground that he made the fireman understand that his wife and children were in the room.
Fireman Found Three Dead
A fireman scrambled back up the ladder, but smoke forced him to retreat. Returning to the ground, the fireman put on a smoke mask and ascended again, but the mother and her children were dead. The bodies were removed an hour later.
Burial will be in Memorial Park eemeterv.
Gel Ready for New (old Wave, Warning
C. Jester home about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday morning and found the frame house afire throughout. The walls of the house were still standing when firemen left a couple of hours later, but the inside was gutted.
Led Father to Door
Fire Chief Ed Haley said that he had been informed that the fire was started by A. A. Jester, who is believed to have been smoking and set something in the house on fire.
Jester told firemen that he had got his father from his bedroom and took him to the kitchen door on the west side of the house where he left him about three feet from the door, telling him to get out of the house because it was on fire.
Mr. Jester probably would have taken his father away from the house if his wife and granddaughter had not started screaming and crying because of the intense heat.
Jester Was Feeble
The body of the man was found about where Mr. Jester said that he had left him. He apparently had made no attempt to leave the
Neighbors said that the elder Jester was feeble and could not get around well.
The Jester home was located outside the city limits, but firemen strung several blocks of hose to the house in an effort to save it.
When the fire was finally brought under control, parts of the roof and walls were left standing, but the inside of the building was burned out.
Others Painfully Burned
Officials at the Breco hospital said that Mrs. Jester and her granddaughter were burned painfully, but not seriously.
Mr. Jester told firemen that he had several hundred dollars in cash and some war bonds in the house and that he believed they were all destroyed.
Funeral services will be held at Texarkana, Ark., with further arrangements to be announced later by Criswell Funeral Home.

Final Calls Hare Thursday; County Groups Must Gat In Collections Saturday
Thursday is “Round-Up Day” for Ada’s part in the national Old Clothes drive. It is the final day of the campaign.
Already, since Saturday's citywide cleanup, many calls have come to No. 22 from residents whose clothing contributions are now ready.
And Thursday there will be cars going about over the city making pickups of clothing from
Friday on the Mt. Mc Kinley after a three weeks sur vey of Japan. “If we pull out before that, we will have a little balkans.”
Thomas Confessor, chief Philippines ^legate, urged military occupation of IO years “and then a civilian occupation for another IO years headed by a group such as the far eastern commission.”
The Chief U. S. Delegate. Maj. Gen. Frank B. McCoy, declined to express an opinion “because, since I am chairman of the commission, it might be viewed as an opinion of the entire group.”
McCoy had issued a statement in the name of the FEO saying ed

Martin Clark, county chairman, says that additional calls to No. 22 will be accepted to 9 o’clock Thursday morning for the workers to make the visits to individual homes or places of business to get clothing.
He also reminds schools over the county or other working groups that the Pontotoc county contribution may be shipped Saturday, so that the clothing must be brought in in time to be pack-

Demands for a law that would forbid curing other nations in on results of the coming atomic bomb tests gathered steam today I on Capitol Hill.
Members of the house naval committee said they intend to [ write the top secret idea into a wending bill by Chairman Vinson (D-Ga.) and send the measure to the house floor for a quick vote.
“I’ve talked it over with some of the others on the committee and I’m convinced almost all of them favor the secrecy requirement.” Rep. Grant (R-Ind.) told a reporter. “I am quite certain they want it.”
Vinson has asked Vice Admiral W. H. P. Blandy to have a suggested draft of the ban ready for committee action today. Vinson’s bill will make the tests fully legal bv providing specific congree sional permission to destroy ships chosen for the exoeriment.
The point chiefs of staff have put Blandy in charge of the tests scheduled to start next Mav off Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
Grant got the committee interested in his idea after Secretary of State Byrnes told reporters yesterday that this government already tentatively has decided to allow the United Nations atomic, energy commission to watch the atomic blasts.
But even the “ringside” seats probably will be up to ten miles away for safety’s sake. Hence few results will be discernable to the eye witnesses.
Vinson at first agreed with Blandy that present secrecy policy on all atomic matters should suffice. But latter the
chairman said he, too. thought there should be a legal ban against divulging any technical knowledge obtained in the tests.

Top Hen For GM and UAW GM Together
Ready to Moat With Federal Mediator in Now I Ho HI Ta Settle GM Strike
DETROIT. Jan. 30— (^—Uncle Sam’s latest effort to settle the General Motors strike was scheduled to get off to a fast start either this afternoon or tomorrow when C. E. Wilson, GM president, and R. J.. Thomas, chief of the CIO United Auto Workers, begin negotiations with special Federal Mediator James F. Dewey.
Dewey, who went right into action after getting Labor Secretary Lewis B. Schwellenbach’s orders to take over in the 71-dav dispute involving 175,000 GM employes, held a series of informal conferences yesterday with both management and labor and then announced the joint meeting.
Reuther Has Been Leader
It is the first negotiating session for Wilson since discussions began last September, and Thomas too is taking a more active part than he has played during most of the strike.
Union arguments both before and after the Nov. 21 walkout have been led by vice-President W’alter P. Reuther. also taking part in Dewey's session.
Dewey, who asserted yesterday he hoped the session between the two parties would help “keep them together,’ expected to run into the wage increase demand that has been the major issue in the long strike. The union originally asked a 30 per cent raise, later brought its figure in line with a governmental boards recommendation for 19*2 cents an hour and then reinstated the higher demand when the corporation did not agree to the compromise.

Last Saturday the UAW agreed to raises of 18 per cent from the Ford Motor Co. and 18 li cents from Chrysler Corp., but Reuther declared GM would have to pay a higher boost to compensate “hardships” suffered by its strik-

By ROBERT E. GEIGER
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30.—(IP) —The Veterans Administration moved today for a clear-cut definition of national policy regarding future medical care and hospitalization of veterans with nonservice connected disabilities.
Gen. Omar N. Bradley, VA administrator, drafted a letter to President Truman outlining the critical situation he said has arisen in handling such cases, due to the shortage of doctors, nurses and hospital space.
The point might be reached, Bradley noted, where no more veterans with non-service disabilities could be accommodated.
Under existing policy many veterans with non-service connected disabilities have been receiving free government medical care. VA officials said this has resulted in the following situation:
disabilities in no way connected with their military service.
Members From War ll Gaining
2. World War II veterans with non-service disabilities already slightly exceed those with service connected disabilities, and their number is increasing.
Present laws give veterans with service-connected disabilities first call on hospital facilities. If additional space is available veterans with non-service connected cases may be received, but they must sign a statement saying they are unable to pay a hospital or doctor’s bill.
Veterans’ organizations have been trying to liberalize the rules. The American Legion wants the pauper's oath abolished; the veterans of foreign wars have approved resolutions that all disabled veterans be cared for. May Lack Doctors

“If the rules are liberalized, hospital cases might jump to 500.-000 by 1975,” one official said, asking that his name not be used.
Somebody Must Decide Both Gen. Bradley and VA’s medical director, Gen. Paul R. Hawley, are of the opinion that “congress or authority higher than the Veterans Administration” will have to decide soon what future policy is going to be.
As they see it, either hospitalization will have to be restricted to veterans with service-connected disabilities. Or else a greatly enlarged hospital construction program will be necessary to handle cases.
