HUFFLEIHOSt UR EXHAUSTS
Get New Muffler on or Fine Will Moke It Expensive, Soys McKeown
County Attorney Tom D. McKeown is giving owners of automobiles with straight exhaust' until June 15 to have a muffler installed replacing the ‘straight’. He says that it will be cheaper for owners of such cars to have a new muffler installed rather than pay a fine.
The county attorney said Thursday morning that fines will range from $25 to $30 and that there will be no exemptions.
He has received several complaints about the cars with ‘straights and in each instance the straight’ type of muffler has been installed to replace regular mufflers.
“There is no need for people not using mufflers on their automobiles and after June 15, there will be a lot less/’ the county attorney said.
^ The visitors will be at Bill Likins Flying L ranch for lunch Friday at noon. Mr. Likins, who is president of the Hereford Heaven association, has been planning to feed 1,000 persons but Wednesday night he was looking for additional food as he is expecting more as the time for the tour nears. Roy Rogers To Tour Friday Roy Rogers, star of western pictures, will be one of the attractions Friday as he has consented to make the first day of the tour. He will not be touring the ranches Saturday as he is going to start work on a picture to be made in Hereford Heaven.
Mr. Likin asserted that he had to go to great lengths to get Rogers to make any part of the tour and was delighted when the western star agreed to visit seven ranches Friday.
Bill Likin, Roy J. Turner, Dean W. L. Blizzard, Al Darlow, Mrs. T. G. Wails, the Flying L Quartet and a quartet from Sulphur appeared on a 30 minute program heard Wednesday evening over radio station KADA.
Just The Beginning Turner is president of the American Hereford Breeders Association and owner of the famous Turner Ranch that is located near Sulphur. Mr. Turner told the radio audience that the Hereford Heaven Association tour this year is only the beginning of a growing undertaking.
Mr. Turner said that he believes that the Hereford Heaven Association tour this year will be probably the largest such tour ever held in Oklahoma.
Visitors From Other States
Many ranchers from other states attended the dispersion sale ?»r J?ck Turner’s herd at Ft. Worth early this week and will attend part of the Hereford Heaven tour.
Visitors to the 12 ranches will be given an opportunity to inspect barns and other equipment used on the now famous ranches in Hereford Heaven. Pastures will be inspected by many, who are wondering how cattle can thrive so readily on pasture grass.
Some visitors do not expect to make the first part of the tour and for that reason a list follows of ranches and the hour that the tour is expected to be at each.
The Schedule McMakins Lazy K, located three-fourths miles south and one and one-eighth mile west of Marietta on Highway 77, 8 a.m. Friday;
Moss Patterson’s Lazy S, located ll miles north of Ardmore or 13 miles south of Davis on highway ll, 9:30 a.m. Friday;

The Roy Turner Ranch is the last ranch scheduled on the Friday part of the tour.
Sulphur Chamber of Commerce will be host at a dinner served Friday night at Sulphur. All persons making the t6ur are invited to attend this dinner and other entertainment that will be furnished.
Orlando Nay Be Italy's President
Only Survivor of Vorsoillot Big Four, Now 86, Favorably Regarded .
By GEORGE E. BRIA
ROME, June 6.—(ZP)—Grizzled, 86-year-old Vittorio Emanuele Orlando was winning wide mention today as a likely compromise candidate tor first president of Italy’s new republic as the nation awarited formal proclamation of the end of the monarchy.
Orlando, only survivor of the Big Four of Versailles, was being proposed, political observers said, because as a Sicilian he would be able to repair the schism shown at the polls between the industrial north—which .favored the republic—and the south—which supported the house of Savoy.
Communists Oppose Him
It appeared likely, however, that Orlando would face powerful opposition from the communists, third strongest party in the weekend elections. Palmiro Tog-liatto, minister of justice and a communist leader, declared in a final campaign speech that the communists ‘never” would collaborate with Orlando, whose national democratic union ran fourth in the balloting.
Another “venerable old man” of Italian jiolitics, 78-year-old Ivanhoe Bonomi, who led two provisional governments during Italy’s status as a co-belligerent, also was being suggested as a presidential candidate. His supporters said he was less of a monarchist than Orlando and thus perhaps more suitable to a new regime.
King Umberto II, meantime, prepared to follow his father into exile, his brief reign ended under the crushing weight of nearly 13,-000,000 votes favoring a republican form of government.

Warren IL Lewis Dies Here After Extended Illness
Warren H. Lewis, 23 years old, died at the home of his parents, Mr and Mrs. James W. Lewis, 223 South Francis, at 12:40 Thursday afternoon. Funeral arrangements had not been made at 3 o’clock. A brother and sister live rn California, and another brother was on his way back to the Hawaiian islands. The time they can arrive will determine final arrangements.
The young man grew up in Ada. attended public schools and had started his coliegiate course in East Central. He served for 17 months in the army, being stationed most of the time at the Army Air base in Amarillo. Before going into the service, a skin trouble developed, which troubled him most of the time he was in the service, and he was finally given a medical discharge. While he has been better and worse many times since his return home, it was not until about six weeks ago that he appeared to be fatally ill. He spent more than a month in the hos-ltal, but was returned to the ©me about ten days ago.
The physician who knew Warren rn the army flew to Oklahoma City from Chicago and was rushed to Ada early Wednesday morning.

OPA Facing Hard Baffle
Supporters of Extension Fighting to Hold Some Powers for OPA Setup
By FRANCIS J. KELLY
WASHINGTON, June 6.—(ZP)— An OPA bill laden with grief for the administration began its journey to the senate floor today.
Over bitter minority protests, the banking committee drafted a formal recommendation to the chamber that it vote to extend prica control one year beyond (June 30 but in sharply curtailed form.
Chairman Wagner (DN Y.), whc led a losing administration fight against drastic revisions in the present law, announced he would issue a report denouncing the changes.
Although half a dozen members of the 19-man committee 'ignified their intention to side with the chairman, the effect on' the senate during next week’s debate was highly problematical.
The house already has passed an extension bill which administration spokesmen have said would mean the end of price control next month unless the senate took a different tack.
Bowles Says “Monstrous”
Here are some of the major feaiures of the senate bill, condemned as “monstrous” by Stabilization Director Chester Bowles even before its completion:
I Price control over livestock, meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products would end this June 30.
2. The secretary of agriculture rather than the price administrator would say what other farm products could be kept under price ceilings.

WASHINGTON. June «.-(*»>— House and senate braced today for a tug of war over resuming the teen age draft But there were hints of a compromise making 19-year-old eligible and exempting those of 18.
The two chambers found themselves poles apart on the teen age issue rn their efforts to decide how to continue the draft. The senate is overwhelmingly for continued use of teen agers in the services, the house just as overwhelmingly against it.
The senate pushed the question tow'ard a showdown when it gave a thumping 69 to 8 majority yesterday to its bill for keeping the main provisions of the wartime draft act in force until next May.
Although it differed on a number of points from the house measure voted April 13, the teen age provision promised to be the big stumbling block in the bill which the senate passed along to a senate-house conference committee.
Several Tasks Involved The conferees, seven senators and seven representatives, must adjust all the differences and persuade congress to accept their recommendat.ons between now and June 30, when the present aw expires. Here is their problem:
Length of extension: The sen-ate voted to continue the draft until next May 15; the house un-I til next February 15.
Age of inductions: The senato \ by a 53 to 26 count voted to con* jtinue inducting 18 and 19-year-olds; the house by a 195 to 96 tally ordered a halt to teen-age inductions. The top draft age rn the house bill is 29; in the senate’s, 44.
Pay raises* The senate wrote into its bill pay raises for enlisted grades only, ranging from 50 percent for buck privates to smaller boosts for too sergeants and corresponding ranks in the other services. The house refused to put pay raises into the draft bill but voted in separate legislation for raises ranging from 50 percent for buck privates to IO percent for five-star generals.
Induction “holiday”; the house ordered a moratorium on all inductions prior to October 15. The senate turned that proposal down. Agree On Some Provisions The two branches are in virtual agreement on these provisions of their separate bills:
A ban against induction of fathers, regardless of age.
A limit of 18 months of servico for inducted men.
A prohibition against any inductions that will give the army more than 1.070,000 men by July I, 1947.
Continuation of re-emplovment benefits specified in the wartimo draft act.
The conferees expect little difficulty compromising all the differences except the teen-age provision. But ;>n that question a knock-down, drag-out fight was in prospect.
SHAWNEE, June 6.—(Jf)—Tho Shawnee city commission has voted to lift a tax assessed dairy owners supp*ying milk to local consumers. Dr. Charles Haygood. county health director, said the tax was “producing more irritation than revenue.”
