Deodlock Threatens Compromise Effort, Taft Won't Budge fro rn Senate Bill
By FRANCIS M. LE MAY
WASHINGTON. July 17.—(A*) —A deadlock threat plagued administration efforts to strike a bargain on OPA today.
President Truman was reported willing to sign the senate’s revival bill, provided congress restores price ceilings on meat, eggs, butter and other foods.
But Senator Taft (R-Ohio), who bore the brunt of Mr. Truman’s criticism in the previous OPA veto, told a reporter he is unwilling to budge an inch on the new bill which the president has said | “couldn’t be any worse.”
“Of course the president would sign the bill if we put such things as meat, eggs and butter back under controls,” Taft said. “I have no desire to compromise the bill. If the president wants to veto it, then let him veto it.”
Senate Is Key To w’hich Chairman Spence (D-Ky) of the house banking committee replied: “If the senate stands pat we will have no OPA. They have got to give in if we are going to have any price controls.”
This was the situation as the 14 member senate-house confer-; ence committee, of which Taft» and Spence are members, began its compromise task.
Meanwhile, just in case OPA is revived, the senate voted to cut its operating funds by $30,000,000 and slapped a ban on use of any i

Several State Officials Say Price Has Keen Too Law For Soma Tima, Rise in Prices to Give Farmers Boost
NEW ORLEANS, July 17.—(AP)—Talk of 40 and 50-cent cotton is being heard throughout the south, since OPA controls apparently are off the market for good, and 35 cents a pound has just been passed for the first.time in more than

The house voted OPA $106,000.-OOO. The senate trimmed the bill 'to $56,000,000.
Truman May Sign Anyway House members of the conference committee were expected to propose to the senate members today that They cut from the revival bill all amendments banning future price ceilings on meat, poultry, eggs, butter, cheese, milk or other dairy products, cottonseed, soybeans, grain, livestock or poultry feed and tobacco; also petroleum, so long as supply meets demand.
Word was circulated on capitol hill, however, that Mr. Truman had told democratic leaders that if the food exemption amendments were stricken he would sign the senate bill, notwithstanding any other objections. The White House itself was silent.

The temperature high for Monday and Tuesday was 98 degrees but it got a little cooler Tuesday night. Some citizens of Ada will sugar that it reached w*ell over IOO degrees yesterday but the Ada Greenhouse mercury refuses to agree.
People living in Ada can be thankful that it’s only as hot as it is, far this time last year, Ada temperatures were bouncing a-round the 102 mark.
Jail Empty WHI)
No Arrests in Day
Quiet in Ada is continuing with police officials reporting no arrests made Tuesday. There w*asn’t even a minor accident or a robbery. The jail was kept completely empty and patrolmen could Bro no lawbreakers except in parking violations.
This lack of lawlessness in the city began July 8, after a week that was also quiet but not as much as it has been recently.
Police officials have made approximately thirteen arrests in the last ten days and four or five accidents have been reported. Ten of the arrests and three ac-1 cidents were reported over the i weekend, which is often much busier with as m^iy as 16 arrests being perpetrated in a day.
Police are thankful for this rather prolonged vacation because the Ada Rodeo is less than a month off and when it arrives the department expects to have it’s hands full.

There w ill be four three-months phases. The first will be the or ganization of headquarters and headquarter units of regimental and separate battalions. A force of 50 per cent officers and 50 per cent enlisted men will be required.
The second three months period will be used for the organization of subordinate units, which will require 25 per cent officers and IO per cent enlisted personnel.
The third and fourth periods will be list'd about the same as the second period, with the local units increasing in strength.
Local officers of the organization anticipate that two years will be required to fully organize and equip all units connected with the Ada outfit.
Who Can Enlist
Any man who has one year of active duty to his credit can enlist for two years and those with less than one year of service or w ith no service at all will enlist for three years.
As soon as 50 per cent officers and 50 per cent enlisted men can be procured an inspector will make a trip to Ada to inspect the outfit, at which time it will be activated.
After activation, members will draw; drill pay which will be one-thirtieth of army pay for corresponding rank. For instance, a private will receive one-thirtieth of $75 or $2.50.

WASHINGTON. July IT. l/P)
Pretty, red haired, Joan Bates i testified today that as secretary for a midwest munitions combine now under war profits investigation she said she handled frequent telephone calls from Rep. May (D-Ky) and “on several occasions” from the office of Senator Barkley (D-Ky).
Mrs. Bates told her story to the senate war investigating committee in its inquiry of the war-j time operations of a group of | companies in which the Cai sson i brothers. Henry and Murray, were active.
She said that “two or three ! times” a week the Washington J office of the combine got calls from Rep. May, chairman of the house military committee.
The calls from Barkley’s office, Mrs. Bates added, came from a woman she believed to be the secretary of the senate majority leader. Mrs. Bates did not know, she said, whether Barkley himself took part in the telephone conversations.
Other Solons* Offices Involved
Today’s mention was the first time that Barkley’s name has come into the committee’s public hearings.
Mrs. Bates named six congius sional offices which she said either had called or had been caller! by Joseph Freeman, sales agent fi>r the munitions makers.
She named the offices as those of:
House Majority Leader McCormack (D Mass).
Rep. Sa bath (D ll!) chairman of the house rules committee.
Time lo (heck Upr See lf Child Ready For School Start
School will be opening soon. September 9, and Supt. Rex O. Morrison reminds that it will be the first time to all children here who will be six years old on or before October 31. 1946.
Much can be done by parents and guardians of children to help them adjust readily to the new experiences they are sure to encounter when the> start to school.
Following is the 'list of two ar tides which will list points in general about a child s readiness for school. It is hoped that every item will be cheeked by parents I and where a child fails to measure up to the standards, a suggested program is given for the remain- t der of th*' summer to help him be ! ready without any intellectual, emotional, social or physical handicaps.

Former Rep. Dickstein (I) NY), then chairman of the house immigration committee.
Senator Capehart (R-Ind).
Mrs. Bates told the committee that Freeman would call Sabath "maybe once a week,” and that Sabath called Freeman “a couple of tim*?s,” she said. She had called Sahath’s office as well as May s in searching for Freeman by telephone.
Rep. Dickstein Called
She testified she had called Senator Capehart once for Freeman and telephoned Dickstein "quite frequently maybe twice a month.” She added that Dick-stein called her office “several times.”
In saying she had answered tet-ephone calls from the office of Barkley "quite a few times," Mrs. Bates testified she believed the caller was a Mrs. Chance whom she thought was Barkley’s accretal ry.
i One of the con panics in the combine is the Batavia Metal Products Co. on July 3. David M. Barkley, son of tin* senator said, at Batavia, 111., he had been with this company iii sales work since December and planed to resign soon.
(Young Barkley, formerly a major in the army air forces, said he took the job as “a straight business proposition” and his resignation had "nothing to do with the senate investigation.”)
Mrs. Bates testified that among army officers who had telephoned the munitions group's Washington office were two generals she identified only as Waite and Porter.
