Says Officer HH Mea in Woalds
By DQN DOANE
BAD N A IT H EIM, Germany, June ll.—(TP)—A former Lichfield guardhouse prisoner testified today that he saw Lt. Leonard W. Ennis of Peekskill, N. Y. repeatedly ask prisoners where they had been wounded and then “poke” their wounds with his billy club.
This happened “ten or twelve times that I saw,” said the witness, Mike Koblmsky of Saginaw, Mich., who still is serving a court martial sentence. Ennis is one of two officers now on trial on charges of cruelty to inmates of the U. S. army guardhouse in Lichfield, England, during the last year of the war.
In the simultaneous trial of Lt. Granville Cubage of Oklahoma City, lawyers’ attempts to ascertain Cubage’s official responsibility over discipline of prisoners ran into frequent refusal of a witness to answer questions which he said “might tend to incriminate” him.
The witness was Capt. Joseph A. Robertson of Akron, O., who, although he is awaiting trial on the same charges, told the court martial he had not yet been provided with defense counsel.
Robertson said Cubage “was performing some of the duties of a prison officer” but he did not know if that was his official title during the time the prosecution charges he was responsible for mistreating prisoners.

Washington Stunned by Seeing One Justice Assailing Another
Greater returns for amount invested. Ada News Want Ads.
WASHINGTON. June ll. —Bread and flour shortages for at least another year was the forecast handed American housewives today despite the start on harvesting another of the nation’s bumper wheat crops.
The agriculture department reported considerable improvement in bread and flour supplies are expected in another month, but hardly to the extent needed to meet all domestic and famine relief demands before the 1947 harvest.
The bread scarcity in a number of major cities meanwhile verged on the acute stage, and an Associated Press spot survey also disclosed the same held true for meat. Soap, butter and cooking fats ranked next on the list of increasingly hard-to-get items.
The outlook in the cities covered seemed to be that these shortages would grow worse before the situation improved. Harvesting of the new wheat crop promised to ease the bread-flour picture, but complex uncertainties made thp prospects dubious for any big improvement in the supply of meats, butter, or fats.
In its June crop report issued yesterday, the agriculture department said the third consecutive billion-bushel wheat crop and the third largest crop of record was indicated by conditions prevailing on June I.
The crop estimate was put at
1.025.509.000 bushels, or atxmt 25,000,000 bushels more than was indicated a month earlier. While about 100,000,000 bushels below last year’s record harvest, this year’s crop stands out as a large one in comparison to the 10-year (1935-44) average of 844,000,000 bushels.
There still is time for further improvement in production prospects—particularly in the more northern producing areas where the crop matures later—but it is hardly possible for the final outturn to be large enough to allow consumers all their want.
Sunshine, Holler Sale's Forecast
By The Associated Presa
The federal weather bureau promised today more bright sunshine needed by farmers to harvest the fourth largest wheat crop Oklahoma ever has produced.
The bright weather follows an official U. S. department of agriculture forecast from Washington yesterday that Oklahoma would produce 73,125,000 bushels of wheat as of June I — fourth largest wheat crop in the state’s history.
The crop forecast compared with a previous prediction of
56.250.000 bushels as of May I. *-

Corrigan Wants To Mike Drunks Pay
Senate Candidate Is Dry, Doesn't Seek Prohibition But Higher Liquor Taxes
LOS ANGELES, June ll.—GF) —Stocky sandy-haired Douglas Corrigan (remember “Wrong Way Doug”?) is campaigning for the U. S. senate en the prohibition ticket, and the chief plank in his platform is “soak the drunks with higher taxes.”
Doug is one prohibitionist who wouldn’t prohibit.
“Not much use trying,” said the aviator, who made some kind of history back in July, 1938, when he left Floyd Bennett field, New ’X/>rk, ostensibly* en route to Los Angeles, and wound up in Dublin, Ireland. He said he got lost.
Although he is a tetotaler himself, Corrigan said he had* no very pronounced views on prohibition and that he ran on that ticket in the primary chiefly because it was the only one on whifch he could get nominated. He was that party’s only candidate for the dffice, so he got the nomination, all right.
“I’m in favor of higher liquor taxes,” Corrigan said. “Control of the liquor traffic is one of the chief items of government expense, and the guy who drinks it
Jackson's Blunt Attack on Black Brings Feud Inside Court Into Open, May Lead To Overhaul of Supremo Court Procedure
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST *
WASHINGTON, June ll.—(ZP) —The unprecedented spectacle of one supreme court justice publicly assailing another stunned official Washington today, but several lawmakers held it might lead to restoring what they term the “lost dignity” of the tribunal.
The bombshell which Justice Robert H. Jackson exploded in his blunt attack on Justice Hugo Black projected a long-smoldering judicial feud out into the open, and these influential lawmakers thought this could be a good thing in the long run.
Specifically, they said privately congress may order a complete overhaul of court procedure in an effort to minimize “bickering” on and behind the bench.
No Parallel In Modern Times
At the moment, however, the capital buzzed with more immediate speculation over whether Jackson and Black intended to continue on the high bench, despite a virtual state of wa; between them. The situation was without parallel in modern court history.
Jackson lashed out at Nuernberg last night at what he called Black's “bullying” tactics. He declared-his colleague had threatened him with “war” unless Jack-v son “covered up facts” in the portal-to-portal mine pay case in which Black’s former law partner represented the victorious United Mine Workers.
Jackson addressed his complaint to the senate and house judiciary committees, but members laid they jvould defer on-the-record comment until the cablegram had been received officially.
Chairman Hatton W. Summers (D-Texas) of the house group said only that he would submit the document to his committee “immediately” upon its receipt.
No Impeachment Likely
Most members expressed doubt that the committee would even consider impeachment proceedings, which under the constitution must originate in the house and be tried by the senate.
But they said a recommendation for a full-dress review of court procedure is a distinct possibility. This, they added, could lead to new rules for the tribunal to follow, particularly with regard to disqualifying justices from participating in decisions under certain circumstances.
Hone Votes Pay For Vol Unused

Fly Eradication Ta
Ba SoagM Here la
Aati-Pol lo Drive
By Mayor LUKE DODDS
At the invitation of Mayor Luke B. Dodds, a group of P-TA women and other Ada citizens met in Convention hall last Saturday morning to decide upon an urgent strategy which greatly concerns the health, happiness and prosperity of this city through the weeks immediately ahead.
Apparently this group knows the futility of locking the barn after the horse gets away. It is well known that the dreadful polio disease has struck a number of Texas cities. These cities are stretched out like an ever-lengthening chain of terror northward across the state reaching a point not far from the southern border of Oklahoma. The disease is leaving in its wake crippled children, suffering and anxiety and a business economy that has taken such a tailspin that it will not be able to recover for many months to come.
If you have read the press accounts of this monstrous thing that attacks and strikes down from ten to twenty thousand Americans each year, you will recall that an aroused citizenry in each case, laid much of the blame on the sources of filth and contamination in these cities and their environs. In desperation they started clean-up campaigns which were long overdue.
It is the opinion of Ideal health officers, city officials and all enlightened citizens that Ada should launch, immediately, a preventive clean-up campaign. Not a single case of polio has been reported in Pontotoc county this season. We should do our utmost to keep it that way.
If you have any doubt as to the importance of this clean-up proposal read an article entitled "The Tracking of the Carrier of Infantile Paralysis” in the June issue of “The Woman”.
Scientists are pointing an accusing finger at the common house fly as a spreader of this disease. Research workers have concluded that polio probably enters the victim's body through the digestive tract rather than through the breathing apparatus. The house fly has access to human sewage and to the food on our tables and picnic lunches.

Personnel already discharged
are entitled to payments. The amount they receive would depend on the amount of accrued furlough time they certify they had at the time of discharge.
In addition to providing furlough pay for men and women who served during World War II, the legislation phonibits such payments in future emergencies to officers or enlisted personnel.
should foot the bill.'
TToug said his interest in politics dates back to his nationwide triumphal tour after his famous “wrong way” flight. “I saw lots of mayors, governors and such on the tpur,” he explained, “and got interested in government affairs.” Corrigan spent the war years as a civilian pilot for the army’s ferrying command. Between now and the general election in November, he said he will spend most of his time campaigning and then “if I don’t make it” will probably take a job with an airplane factory.

Big Riot Breaks Oui in Naples
Folic#, Troops Fir# on trowd; Vast Throng Marches in Roma Protest
ROME, June ll.—(ZP)—A huge monarchist demonstration i n Naples flared tonight into large rioting in which police and troops turned rifles and automatic weapons on the crowd.
In Rome a crowd of 100,000 bearing communist, anarchist and socialist banners among the Republican tricolors marched on the Viminale palace where the government was sitting and vented their discontent at the cabinet’s delay in proclaiming an end to the monarchy.
Although the eight streets leading to the Piazza Del Pololo were guarded by policemen armed with submachine guns, rifles and short black clubs, the Republican demonstration was marred by no incidents.
A great cheer arose when the Republican flag—red, white and green perpendicular bars without the shield of the house of Savoy—was raised over the Viminale palace for the first time.
The firing in Naples began when the monarchist crowd attempted to storm communist headquarters next door to police headquarters.
Eyewitnesses giving the first report said they saw one man hit by gunfire and that he was so badly wounded he seemed sure to die.
Naples police and troops in full war kit and nearly all armed with automatic weapons used four armored car^ against the crowd, but the stubborn demonstrators blocked the wheels of the armored vehicles and stopped them.

which we obtained with collections of insects consisting only of flies leaves no doubt that they are carriers of the virus.” This means that investigators do say that the common fly is a carrier of polio.
Everyone Asked To Help In view of these facts, the mayor challenges every citizen of Ada to participate in a fly-eradi-cation campaign.
Accordingly, plans are under way to make a house-to-house solicitation by P-TA members for funds for the purchase of DDT! and for the employment of labor to clean up all alleys.
DDT will be used to spray all garbage cans, cow bams, horse lots, open sewage and out-door toilets in and around the city. Individual families will be asked to cooperate not only by providing funds for this but also by spraying their own windows and door screens and every fly-breeding place on their premises.
Details for the fund collection and actual time of the city wide clean-up will be announced later.

Vote Hargill Is Scanty
Backers Five Votes Short OI Two-Thirds Majority; President Explains Veto
WASHINGTON, June ll.—(A*) —The house today upheld President Truman's veto of the Case labor disputes bill, thereby killing the measure at least temporarily.
Tile vote w*is 135 to uphold the veto and 255 to override the president.
The latter figure fell five short of the two-thirds majority required for keeping the legislation alive for senate action on the veto.
Backers May Try Again
Backers of the legislation have indicated they may attempt to tack the Case bill on as an amendment to emergency labor legislation requesetd by the president on May 25. The emergency bill has been passed by senate and house in different forms.
Mr. Truman gave five reasons for disapproval, in a special message to congress. They were:
1. “Men cannot be forced in a peacetime democracy to work for a private employer under compulsion.”
2. The bill would operate to promote, not lessen, industrial StTijf£
3. it also would have “failed completely” to have prevented or shortened “the strikes which so seriously have damaged our economy these last few months.”
4. “Strikes against private employers cannot be ended by legislative decree, xxxx They must be considered in the light of inflationary pressures, of problems of full employment, of economic security.”
5. The bill “strikes at symptoms and ignores underlying causes” of stoppage. It approaches the problem “on a piecemeal basis.”
Mi*. Truman used 4,500 words in his mrssjigr to tho house, analyzing the hill which congress voted by big majorities. He stirred the need of increased production arui said “alMkt** and orkouts art* the greatest handicaps to attaining vital produe. tion,”
Major provisions of the Case hill included the creation of rn federal mediation board, restrictions against any strike or lockout while tile board sought solution of a labor dispute; a prohibition on secondary boycotts; and provision for court suits against employers or labor organization violating collective bargaining contracts.
Asks For Own Bill The chief executive coupled his veto with a renewed plea for his own emergency strike control plan, for a senate-house study of the whole field of labor relations and for enactment of his long-stalemated domestic legislative program.
“The fact that we are faced with an emergency which does justify the passage of temporary legislation does not, in my opinion, justify us in the adoption of permanent legislation without the study that such permanent legislation needs,” he declared.
The message went to a congress torn by controversy between groups for and against tightening controls over labor.
The house, which passed the Case bill 230 to 108—more than the two thirds majority necessa to override a veto-faced a quic decision on that question.
Failure to override there would kill the bill. But if the house reverses the president by the necessary margin, the veto then would go to the senate, where again a two-thirds majority would be required. The senate vote on passage wts 49 to 29, less than two-thirds.
Today’s message went to the
Four persons were injured about 9 p.m. Monday in a head-on collision that occurred in the 500 block North Mississippi. One man has been charged with driving while intoxicated.
A. M. Bryan, Route 2, Ada, was driving a 1934 Ford sedan north on Mississippi and William Bruce, 20. of Fentem Hall was driving a 1938 Plymouth sedan south on the avenue.
A. A. Ray, member of the Ada police department who investigated the accident, reported that Bruce went across the street, hitting the Bryan car. injuring the driver and three other persons.
Mrs. V. L. Bryan, Route 2, Ada. received cuts and bruises about the face; Freda Bryan of Route 2. Ada had some front teeth knocked out in addition to suffering cuts and bruises about the face; Helen Michael. Allen. Route 2. received cuts and bruises about the face and Mr. Bryan was bruised.
