Police Finish Off June With Flurry Of Arrests, Fines Police department officials made a total of 18 arrests over the weekend to swell the number of arrests for the month of June to 113. hour drunks were picked up, with two of them paying SIO fines and the other two being released to the hospital. A man and his wife filed complaints against each other for drunkenness and disturbance and each was fined $10. Four others arrested for drunkenness and disturbance also paid off, three of them being fined $15 and the other $10. Three persons were arrested for “drunk and disturbance” and one was fined $10 with the other two being sent to the county court.

Pontotoc County Races to Climax In Rally Tonight Several Contests in County Spurring Interest, Vote Outlook for Tuesday A political campaign which grew from a tiny cloud into a full-fledged thunderstorm over a few weeks will release its full forces today and night, and Tuesday the results will begin to take form when the voters, who have been on the receiving end, take action. For Pontotoc county hundreds of interested citizens will find the campaign climax at Glenwood park at 8 o’clock tonight. The political rally there will t be the finale of a series of two- J a-week rallies that have been held over the county so that every voter would have an opportunity to sec and hear the county candidates. Heavy Vote In County The airwaves are also taking a beating today and tonight as candidates and their representatives make final impassioned appeals to the voters. Unless the weather proves unfavorable, Ada and Pontotoc county are due to cast a heavy vote. A governor’s race usually puts additional steam into a campaign and this year has been no exception. Voters will be faced with a long ballot of state office seekers, a modest county sheet and a constitutional question. City Council Vote, Too Ada citizens will, in addition, vote on candidates for the city council which will supervise the city government under a council-manager plan soon to go into effect. There are contests only in the Ward 4 race, with two candidate.,, and in the at-large race, with five entries. Voting Tuesday ranges from constable and justice of the peace on through county offices, candidates for state offices, including state legislature and state senate, and congressmen—there is no national senate race in Oklahoma this year. Emphasis in Pontotoc county has risen in the last few weeks in all three of the county com-; missioner races, in the race for sheriff and in the challenge of Hoyt Driskill to the long tenure as district judge of Tai Crawford. Senate Race Sizzles Of late, too, the race for state senate has become a sizzler. Al Nichols, Wewoka, incumbent, has been under fire from an old opponent, Otto Strickland, Allen, and from Virgil Medlock, Pontotoc countyan who seeks to step up to the senate from the state house of representatives. Wednesday the election fires will cool rapidly but from now until then the campaign and election flames are as hot as an August sun in a drought year and even the atomic bomb experiment must take second pla?e here for a couple of days. FEPC Dies and No Early Revival Seen May Be Issue in Future Years; Set Up by Roosevelt Order in 1941 V. greater returns for amount in-ted. Ada New* Want Ads. I WASHINGTON. July I.— FF.PC, long the storm center of (congressional debate, passed out J of official existence today with no comeback hopes for this year. The fair employment practice committee, like OPA, died at midnight and even its staunchest supporters conceded that congress will do nothing toward reviving it this year. They saw it an issue again in 1947, however, and probably in subsequent years. In a somber final report to President Truman, the six members of the committee asserted that an “unchecked revival” of racial discrimination is destroying wartime gains in fair practices. They said nothing short of congressional action can remedy the situation they see developing And they foresaw “civic discoid” if denial of equal opportunity to racial groups becomes permanent. The committee members presented this summary of their view in handling their resignations to Mr. Truman ‘ast night. The president strongly favored permanent continuation of the agency, but his urgings failed to move congress to enact the necessary legislation. FEPC was first set up on June 25, 1941, by President Roosevelt in an executive order which directed it to see that no federal agency or company doing business with the government discriminated against any person for reasons of race, creed, color or natural origin.__.

H. Mayes, head of the eity-county health unit, said early Monday morning that only two cases of poliomclities (polio) had been reported to him and that death resulted from one of the two cases reported. The doctor was quick to say that two cases does not constitute an epidemic. The total number of eases reported for the entire nation from Jan. I to June I, 1946, is 1,034 as compared to 811 cases for the same period last year. “Figures show that polio incidence is on a definite upswing. Most of the cases to date have occurred in Florida, Texas and California,” the doctor reported. He continued bv saying, “Texas and California have had a high incidence of the disease for the past three years and it is likely that Oklahoma will continue to have scattered cases at least as long as the incidence remains high in those two states.” Boy’s Condition Critical The latest report from the (’rippled Children’s hospital in Oklahoma City is that tint* condition of the second Ada polio victim is critical. The doctor says that parents should be on the alert for any sign of illness, especially in children, and consult a doctor. Vomiting, severe headache, sore throat, stiffness in the neck, loss of appetite. fever or signs of a common cold may be the first symptoms of polio. All children and adults who are sick with an unexplained fever should be put to bed and isolated pending medical diagnosis, Dr. Mayes explains. Don’t Keep Children Confined He said that another precaution is to keep children out of large crowds of people that the children are not ordinarily around. Keeping children strictly at home is not desirable and there is probably little to be gained by isolating them from their usual playmates, but the point is to keep them out pf large groups of strange children for at least another week or until officials have additional time for investigation. Children are warned not to swim in water that may be polluted with sewage. .Swimming in a well regulated pool is probably not dangerous unless there is a serious epidemic. Flies Can Carry Virus Flies should be controlled and unsanitary conditions cleaned up. Records show that flies can carry the virus of polio. Dr. Mayes warns against fatigue and sudden chilling of the body. These have been shown experimentally to increase the severity of an infection of polio and small children should have a rest period every day, the doctor asserted. “Avoid panic. Remember that usually only one out of six children with infantile paralysis will develop any paralysis and that it is usually a mild disease. We believe that these mild cases will remain undiagnosed unless parents are alert. So be alert, but avoid panic,” Dr. Mayes said. Wealthy New Yorker Escapes Kidnappers Bruised, Beaten Before He Gets Awoy from Thugr PHILADELPHIA. Julv I (ZP) -Bruised and beaten. Michael Reiter, 47, wealthy New York dress manufacturer, who lives at Forest Hills, Long Island, told police here today he was kidnaped in New York by two thufA who kept him a prisoner in his own car until he was able to escape at a filling station when they stopped to fill the steaming radiator with water. Reiter gave police the following account before returning to New York this morning. The harrowing five-hour ride ended with a desperate fight for freedom when the car stopped at a Philadelphia filling station. While one of his captors was filling the radiator, Reiter grabbed a revolver from the second and pulled the trigger three times but the weapon failed to fire. The thug smashed Reiter's face with his fists and Reiter jumped out of the car. The man who had been filling the radiator scooped up the revolver, jumped into the car and sped away. So quick was the v hole incident, William Bailey, the attendant, did not realize what had happened until Reiter struggled to his feet. Reiter said he never got a satisfactory, look at his kidnapers, at least sufficient to identify them, but said they were both husky, weighing between 180 and 200 pounds. He said he doubted the men were waiting for him but thought they were ready to hold .up any motorist who stopped for the light.  - The Turks call the turkey the American bird, since Unoriginal habitat is North AmeiWk Congress Plunges Back Into Seething Battle Over Price Controls As OPA Goes Out Solons Hope There's Meat—North of the Border "C VT T~ 7 I VT or Meat Counters Bare, Packers Warn Only Black Market Is Operating /anil Denies J.

Confusion Acrose Country Bulk of Target Ships Afloat As Observers Move Into Area To Assess Atom Bomb Damage TOSS- ad of •rued » last By HON WHITEHEAD ’night aboard the carrier Independence. which suffered the greatest damage of any vessel ABOARD USS A PPA LA CHIAN OFF BIKINI. July I (ZF*) Three of th** 73 old target warships were sunk and eight others badly damaged in today’s spectacular test of the fourth atomic bomb. Vice Adm. W. ll. Blandy reported tonight as vessels of his task force moved into Bikini lagoon to survey damage. This was bast'd on a cursory iii apertion. Many ships are burning. The total could be higher by day -break. Whether the atomic bomb will force navies of the world into at a anc new construction and battle tics remained the day’s big ques tion. The bomb wrought a great deal of damage to ships anchored in the lagoon but the blast did nut sink a capital ship, even though they were directly under the explosion. No Conclusions Yet Admiral Blandy declined press conference to draw conclusions from the test. “That’s not our job,” he said. “We put facts before the evaluation boa.*** of the joint chiefs of staff and toe evaluation commission of the president and they draw conclusions.** Scientists aboard the admiral’s flagship said they thought today’s bomb was about equal in nuclear efficiency to the one used at Nagasaki. A recapitulation of the bomb’s destructive power showed two attack-transports, t h c Carlisle and the Gilliam, sunk. The destroyer Lamson was capsized and later went down, and the Destroyer Anderson was so badly damaged it was expecter! to sink momentarily.

Thorvald Solbert said the goats “had a gleam in their eye and seemed perfectly happy.” There have been no reports of what happened to animals on other ships, particularly those the center of the lagoon.
