Menu Scarce on Calories; County Preparing for Donation, Canning Drive
After eating a scant 286 calories worth of food, each member of the Ada Chamber of Commerce heard an appeal Thursday noon for cooperation in the collection of money and 15,000 tin cans of food tor th? Emergency Food Collection Drive to feed starved Europeans.
James O. Bialy, drive chairman. appealed for the canned foods. Organization officers also present on the rostrum were Mrs. Susan Davison, Mrs. L. E. Tennis. and Mrs. Preston O’Neal.
Notice To Scouts
AU scouts of all troops are urged to be at the Convention Hall Monday morning at 8:00 a. rn. to help with the collection of the food stuff to be sent to the starving peoples of the world. Homer Peay, Chairman of the Service Committee will be in charge of the Scouts.
Miss Beverly Byrne, representing Camp File Girls, made a special appearance in behalf of the food campaign, and affirmed that Ad a's youth is sympathetic with helping avert mass starvation. She is to be heard on a ‘ novel radio program” Friday night over KADA.
The C. of C. luncheon colary count—286—represents the “average” daily diet of a starved European, Braly said—and that’s for atli three nasals instead of just ©ne.
Mrs. Jessie Morgan will direct mn effort to can, in tin cans, 1,000 Quarts of Pontotoc county-grown xegetables. That depends on both the cans and the vegetables. Gardens will have mature peas, beans and beets by next week. The cans, it appears, will be on hand. Farmers are requested to bring them to the county agent’s office at the court house.
i he ‘ Pick Up Food Day” is next Monday, but Braly emphasized that canned food can be donated after that. Take it to the police station, or call the police station and the food will be picked up at your residence.
Donations of money should be made to Ray Martin, finance chairman of the Emergency Food Collection Drive, at Convention Hall.

Capitol Elevator Is Oklahomans’
Sooner Lads Usually Go On from Job to College
AP Special Washington Service
WASHINGTON, June 7.—(JP>_
When Robert Comby, Chickasha, Okla., high school graduate, began work today as an elevator operator in the capitol, he became the fiftieth Oklahoma youth to obtain the job on the same elevator since 1930.
The job is the patronage of Rep. Johnson (D-Okla). Each time there is a vacancy, Johnson selects an Oklahoma boy who has made an excellent record in high school and who desires to work his way through a Washington college.
Of the 49, Johnson said, only one quit college before he was graduated and he left school to enter the navy. Some have left their elevator job for other employment. but continued their college work.
“I will not recommend a boy for the job who will not come here with the idea of attending college during his off hours*” Johnson told a reporter.
The elevator is a private one used to carry members of the house and their families and newsmen.

Network of Offices Around Globe to See That Peoples Informed About U. N.
By LARRY HAUCK
NEW YORK, June 7.—(ZP)—The United Nations has launched a far-reaching program to “sell” the U.N. to the world.
Preliminary steps looking to-w'ard a network of branch information offices in principal cities around the globe have been taken and Benjamin Cohen of Chile, assistant secretary general, is now in Europe surveying ground for establishing a wide series of outlets.
Cities on his calling list include Copenhagen, the Hague, Brussels, Paris and Geneva. A London office already is functioning.
Setting up the offices falls in line with a recommendation of the U. N. preparatory commission, which said:
“In order to insure that peoples in all parts of the world receive as full information as possible about the United Nations, the department of public information should consider establishment of branch offices at the earliest practicable date.”
Information, Not Propaganda
The commission recommended, however, that the department should not engage in “propaganda” but rather promote an informed understanding of the work and purposes of the U.N.
In addition to serving as an outlet for U.N. publications, films, exhibits and posters, the branches would be charged with the responsibility of reporting trends of world opinion about the
Will Analyze Opinions
The commission had this to say of the reporting service:
“Branch offices should be equipped to analyze trends of opinion throughout the world about activities of the United Nations and the* extent to which an informed understanding of the work of the U.N. is being secured.”
A United Nations spokesman said this service probably would include checking news stories, edty>rials and the general nrom-inence given U. N. happenings in all media of the various countries. In cases where the information was found not to be reaching newspapers and other media steps would be taken to insure the supply of tho material.

Russia, Argentina Am Back on Good Diplomatic Terms
By JOHN WALLACE
BUENOS AIRES, June 7.—(JP) —Russia and Argentina have reestablished diplomatic relations, severed in 1917 after the overthrow of the Czarist regime.
Announcement of the termination of the 29-year-old diplomatic rift between the powers was made here by President Juan D. Peron at his first press conference since taking office last Tuesday.
Simultaneously, the Moscow radio, heard rn London, said the two governments, “inspired by the high principles of collaboration and understanding between peoples, declare they have decided to establish from today complete diplomatic, consular and trade relations.”
The Moscow broadcast said ambassadors would be exchanged “in the very near future.”
“The negotiations which have come to such a happy conclusion took place in the city of Buenos Aires between the plenipotentiary of the government of the U.S.S.R., Shevelev, and his excellency the president of the Argentine republic, Gen. Juan Domingo Peron, and the minister of foreign affairs and culture, Dr. Juan Atilio Bra-muglia,” the broadcast added.
The official Soviet press said the diplomatic link between the nations would result in extensive trade. A Russian mission which came here ostensibly to promote commerce was given diplomatic status at Peron’s inauguration.
The Soviet government newspaper Izvestia, in preparing the groundwork for the move, said the establishment of relations would be in the interest of peace and security. Izvestia added that the move had gained strong headway since Peron’s election.

Tokyo Has Small Number of Poisons Living al Laige
By TOM LAMBERT
TOKYO, June 7. <A*u_The rising sun each morning launches Tokyo’s furosha (floating wave) of men, women and children of near despair. They are without work, food or homes.
In this city of 3,700,000, the size of furosha, as estimated by Police Inspector Motoshige Sa-kurai, is about 700 persons, surprisingly small.
The furosha washes toward Ueno Park, which is comparable roughly with New York’s Central Park or San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Japanese police occasionally raid Ueno. In one three-day raid in April they took into custody 463 persons, including 176 children under 13 years of age.
There*s Hope For Some
Most elements of the furosha sleep in parks, railway stations, subway depots and ruined buildings. They try to work days. These anchorless vagabonds shine shoes, sell newspapers, do manual labor for occupation forces or assist black market operators. Some beg.
“There is hope for those who work,” said Samurai. “For those who like their undisciplined life, there is no hope.”
Furosha is not a menace, although these drifting people are blamed for some of Tokyo’s increase in petty crimes.
More Petty Thefts
Sakurai said there is a “great change” in the moral fiber of many Japanese—a slow crumbling of their regard for the personal property and belongings of others. He cited increased purse* snatching and petty thefts.
Police graphs report Furosha is made up of war victims, those who lost their possessions in fire i raids. 50 percent; demobilized soldiers returned to a nation that neither receives them kindly nor aids them noticeably, 20 per cent; war orphans, 20 percent; repatriates 5 per cent, and other unfortunates, 5 percent.
Don’t Resent Americans
Sakurai said the children, even the orphans, hold no resentment against Americans. “There are no werewolves in Japan.”
Nor does the Furosha resent Americans who do this sort of thing.
A Yank stood beside a haggatd crone who was whining for food, money, clothing, anything. He scornfully scanned the crowd which made no move to share their possessions. Reaching into his pockets, he pulled out a handful of cigarettes and an English-Japanese dictionary.
“One cigaret to everyone who gives this woman something.” he faltered in twanging, American-accented Japanese.
In a few moments, the woman’s dirty, ragged kimono front held contributions of food and small denomination currency.
The soldier laughed as he paid off.

Ship Owners To Make Offer To Workers
West Coost Owners Move To Hood Off Threotened A ll-Coost Shipping Strike
By STERLING F. GREEN
WASHINGTON June 7.~m~ Wc3t coast ship owners agreed tori jy to make an offer to three of th? maritime unions threatening an all-coas* shipping strike June 15.
This development coincided w'th:
1 A White House cabinet meeting at whit h the strike situation war considered Attorney General Tom Clark said reconversion Director John W Snyder termed the outlook “pretty bad.”
2 A council of war by top men of the big CIO national maritime union. Its leaders from 40 ports assembled to talk strategy.
The unions to which the west coost operator proposals will go «*re the cooks and stewards, marine firemen, and engineers. An hojrs-long discussion at the labor department resulted in agreement to tender the offer.
Bridges, Foisie to Meet
In addition, a meeting was arranged for the first time in more than a week between Harry Bridges, president of the ClO-In-lernationa1 Longshoremen and Warehousemen’s union, and Frank P. Foisie, president Bf the Waterfront Employers’ Association of the Pacific.
The labor department, in programming the maritime discussions aimed at heading off the June 15 walkout by members of 0 CIO maritime unions and I independent union, had delayed resumption of talks between those two.
Talk Over “All Issues”
In a statement after this morning’s discussion between the Pacific coast operators and representatives of the three unions with which they are involved, the parties reported:
"‘The discussion encompassed all the issues involved in the disputes between the unions and the Pacific coast operators. Methods w^rc discussed by which the results of the National Maritime •anion negotiations with the east coast operators could be applied as the basis for a settlement of the disputes between each of the west coast unions and the Pacific coast operators.
‘The situation between the unions and the Pacific coast operators varies because of different contract expiration dates and varying Collateral issues. The parties are working on a solution of these points The operators will prepare a proposal on these issues to be submitted to each of the respective unions at 3:00 p m today.”
As AFL seamen filtered back to their ships still talking of expanding their sample-tie-up into a full-dress walkout, members of the NMU’s national council from 40 ports convened for a strike strategy session here.
They possess a $1,000,000 strike chest, the support of six other unions allied in the committee for maritime unity (CMU)—and the signs were ominous.
Nearly 48 hours had passed since the last word of progress from the conciliation conference on which the government is pinning its hopes to stave off CMU’s scheduled strike eight days hence.
It began to look like deadlock. t
Bitter Rivalry To Fore
And reminders of the bitter, sometimes violent rivalry between CIO and AFL for control of the waterfronts surged up in the wake of AFL’s stop-work meetings in 30 cities yesterday.
In New York members of the AFL Seafarers International union and its chief affiliate, the Sailors union of the Pacific, voted to conduct a strike poll at once. They denounced the CIO-dominated CMU as “communist-dominated.”
In most cities the men returned to work, but in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle, for instance, they decided to hold daily meetings and accompanying work stoppages until employers open wage talks.
Men “Hot to Strike’*
At the AFL seamen's headquarters in San Francisco, President Harry Lundberg said his men, “hot to strike,” want immediate negotiations with their employers. The employers spokesmen are in Washington, standing by for the CMU and conciliation conferences.
Lundeberg denounced the latter as a “three ring political circus” and said his men would not be hound by any decisions made in Washington.
Some labor department men thought the AFL demonstration walkouts were bids for attention to Lundeberg’s own demands; one irritated official said privately they might have been meant to “harpoon” the meetings here.
The men Lundeberg wants to talk to—J. B. Bryan and Gregory Harrison, president and attorney, respectively, of the Pacific-American shipowners association —were scheduled for conciliation meetings today with the West Coast’s CIO Engineers. CIO Cooks and Stewards, and the Independent Firemen’s union.

Fred Vinson Named
As Chief Justice, Snyder To Cabinet
Quick Approvol by Senate Forecast for Trumon's Nominees, with Much Criticism Coming from Republicans And From Pro-Labor Now Deal Democ rots Over His Selections
By WILLIAM T. PEACOCK
WASHINGTON, June 7.—(AP)—President Truman’s choice of Fred M. Vinson for chief justice of the United States and of John V. Snyder for secretary of the treasury prompted predictions.today of speedy senate approval.
“There will be no difficulty,’* Senator Johnson (D-Colo), told reporters. Others echoed that forecast.
* And the same word went out for the advancement of John L. Sullivan from assistant to under secretary of the navy, also an-nounced by Mr. Truman in a single breath at his news conference late yesterday.
Vinson’s and Snyder’s selections for two of the highest posts in the land came in for considerable criticism, however, from republicans and from pro-labor, new deal democrats. But none indicated a disposition to fight confirmation. All three nominees must receive senate approval before they can take office.
Privately, some new dealers said they would have preferred to see what they described as a “more liberal” man nominated as chief justice. They count Vinson as pretty much a “middle-of-the-roader” in political philosphy, although some old line democrats look on him as inclined to the left of center.
New Dealers Dislike Snyder
As for Snyder, the new dealers are openly at odds with him. They ascribe chiefly to his influence as reconversion director the firmer White House attitude toward organized labor in recent weeks.
Few republicans had anything critical to say of the nominees themselves, but they were patently disappointed that the president did not nominate a member of their party to the supreme court.
For years, it was more or less a tradition that the bench should be kept in “political balance ” During President Roosevelt’s tenure of office, however, the division came down to seven democrats and two republicans.
With confirmation of Vinson. it will be eight democrats ana one republican. Vinson was named to succeed the late Chief Justice Harlan F. Stone, republican.
Vinson is Mr. Truman’s second selection for the court When Justice Owen J. Roberts retired
G. I. Terminal Pay Likely
House Enthused Over Leg is lot ion to Poy For Furlough Time Missed In Uniform
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST
WASHINGTON, June 7.—(ZP)—
The house, with manifest enthusiasm. today called up legislation to pay some 15.000,000 past and pr -sent rervicemen an average of $250 each to cover furlough time missed Tn uniform.
Its backers, led by Rep. Dwight L. Rogers (D.-Fla.) and Robert L. Sikes (D.-Fla.) predicted its passage without opposition after a few hours of debate and said the chances for early senate approval “look good.”
The only amendment in sight was a non-controversial one in-ter-ded to simplify payment methods. In preliminary form it would permit enlisted men entitled to terminal furlough money to claim it by mail, or collect it in cash at local army or navy offices.
•Since September S, 1939
Here’s what the legislation will do if it becomes law:
1. Entitle enlisted personnel to a irish payment for furlough time not used up in service. Payment would be mad.? at the time of discharge for those still in uniform. or immediately for those aready back in civies, It applies to personnel who have served at any tim? since September 8, 1939.
2. Compute furlough time on the basis of two and one-half
days for each month of service,, u mmpn, rprir^
22 °u™J‘J??*. last th* president reached
be accrued. However, furlough time used up while in service would first have to be deducted.
3. Autnorize the secretaries of the war and navy departments to make the payments “on the basis of sworn statements” by the applicants This provision, military committee members said privately, probably will result in numerous claims for the maximum of 120 days pay.
For Men Who Died
4 Direct payments to next of kin in cases of men who have died.
5. Exempt the payments from taxes and from all claims of creditors.
6. Prohibit the payment of cash in lieu of furlough time for all personnel, both officers and enticed mon, in furture wars on national emeigencies.
The legislation grew out of congressional demands that enlisted personnel be given the same privileges as officers in accumulating leave, or furlough time Heretofore, enlisted men have been unable to carry over unused furlough time from year to year, whereas officers could accumulate it up to the four months maximum and be paid for the unused leave upon their separation from the service.
Cost Estimates Vary
Die measure puts enlisted personnel and officers on the same basis, with each being paid at the rate of pay and allowances received at the time of discharge. In no case would the allowance,
Not a Fire, Jut Housecleaning
No, Ada didn’t have a big fire this morning. All the trucks may have been parked outside of the fire station but it was only so the firemen could clean out the parking stalls for Ada’s six fire-fighting engines.
Upon first seeing the five smaller trucks parked out in front and the big hook and ladder at the side some of Ada’s citizens thought something was happening.
Its been quite a while since Ada has had a really big fire. The trucks have to be cleaned and their parking spaces cleaned every now' and then.

into republican ranks and tapped Senator Harold H. Burton of
The general republican attitude was reflected in the comment of Senator Hickenlooper (R-Iowav that he considered it an “ominous thing” that the president “insists on almost entirely constituting the supreme court xxx* with jurists who have been vigorous advocates of a special political philosophy.”
Although there was no immediate indication that the republicans intended to make an issue of it. Senator White of Maine, their leader, did not close the door to that possibility. He told reporters he had not consulted others and did not know whether there would be a “storm.”
With regard to Snyder, most republicans took the view that the president has the right to pick his own official family and that the senate should not interfere unless there is some fundamental reason for doing so.
Announcement to Sudden Mr. Truman ended weeks of speculation over a successor to Stone by telling reporters unexpectedly that he had decided on Vinson, his secretary of the treasury since last July.
He also announced that Snyder, one-time St. Louis banker and former federal loan administrator, would succeed Vinson and that Snyder’s office of war mobilization and reconversion would be allowed to die.
In contrast to the storm when Edwin W. Pauley. California oil man, was nominated to be undersecretary of the navy last winter, the Sullivan appointment W'as generally acclaimed.
