The one-time Dubuque, Iowa, school ’.cache . one of eight Americans indicted June 26. 1943. by a District of Columbia grand rury for treasonable broadcasts of Axis propaganda during the war, chee of natural causes somewhere in the Soviet occupation zone, the army was informed.
Ka.ten bach, seized by the Russians almost immediately after the end of hostilities in Berlin had been sought by the Americans ever since August, 1945. when the first of many requests was made to the Red Army for his custody. The Russians replied that they were unable to locate Ka] ten bach.
Last month American authorities were told by “the Russians that they believed they had located Ka] ten back and probably would deliver him within a week or ten days.
Kaltenbach broadcast, made speeches and wrote pamphlets for ! tr.e Nazis from 1937 until 194‘> but in the latter years of the war j he .apsed into relative inactivity because of poor health. He was known to have been ill of a heart aliment and asthma for at least -d months prior to his arrest the Russians on May 15, 1945.
only were the Russians un-«ole to produce any camp records on Kaltenbachs case, but they also failed to inform the Amencan authorities on the cause of death. The letter bearing tr.e news of the propagandist's passing, signed by a Red army wa,or general said only that Kaltenbachs death of natural ca.f-es has been confirmed by statements of several former in-

ELECTION PARTY The Ada News will hold its usual election party Tuesday night, July 23, with loudspeaker announcements of local and state returns to be made to the many voters who assemble on North Broadway to hear how the precinct:, of this county vote, who is carrying this county; how the races for congress and state offices are developing as the Associated Press compiles them in. Oklahoma City.
The bitter battle of Roy J. Turner and Dixie Gilmer for the democratic nomination for governor is having plenty of reverberations in Pontotoc county.
The county went for William Coe in the first election, With Turner in second place: most of the estimates now to be heard of Tuesday’s outcome are being given out in confident fashion by the adherents of one or the other.
A heavy vote in Pontotoc county makes it a desirable plum in a race as hard-fought as that of this year.
Sheriff’s Race Hard-Fought With many, the outcome of the Clyde Kaiser-Cecil Smith race for sheriff is even more compelling of a move to the polls. Smith led Sheriff Kaiser in the first pri mary and since that time the campaigning has been persistent and spirited.
Probably third in general in terest is the Cong. Lyle Boren vs. Glen D. Johnson runoff battle raging now all over the Fourth district with Johnson attacking Boren’s record and pointing to his own war service and Boren t barging Johnson is ^being supported by the CIO because of his (Boren’s) opposition to labor racketeering leadership.
Pontotoc county went for Johnson in the earlier vote and supporters of both have rallied their forces for terrific finish drives ending Tuesday.
Earnest State Senate Campaign There will be a big vote cast in another race, that of Virgil Med-lock, state representative for Pontotoc county, against Al Nichols, Wewoka, state senator. No cam-paign this year has been more
earnest over the two counties _
Seminole and Pontotoc—who will be represented by the winner Overshadowed by the ‘big’ races but nonetheless a hard campaign is that of Bob Austell, challenger, and George R. Collins county commissioned for District 2, and this race will contribute definitely to the unexpectedly , ^^total ballots being talked for Tuesday.
Various state races are of less than even secondary interest except that among school people the Oliver Hodge-A. L. Crable campaign for state superintendent of education is of much concern.
One of the secondary state i aces is getting some boost here now as friends of Buck Cook, in the runoff wit.i Mabel Basset for commissioner of charities and corrections, urge friends to support the former Elmore Cityan now in Durant, a war veteran who has been a .business man and also a state highway patrolman.
bo—unless the weather changes suddenly and drastically for the uorse Tuesday—look for a big Pontotoc county vote.
Friday Hottest Day Of Summer Thus For, Clouds Ease Saturday Weather
