Road Designaled As 'Farm lo Market'
Bae Thompson Sets Union Valley-Owl Creek Section As Next for District
County Commissioner Rae Thompson has designated the three miles of road from Union Valley to Owl Creek for the next farm-to-market road project in his district. The state engineer has approved it, and it now lacks only approval by the state and federal departments. Mr. Thompson thinks that a contract will be let in -about two months.
The road will connect highway 3 and highway 61. Highway 61 has been extended from Owl Creek to Lula, thus with the new proposed project an all weather road will be available to the people of Lula, permitting them to go north and south and west.
This is the second farm-to-mar-ket project for the third district, the other being west of Roff to state highway 18.

Political Pace Grows Hotter
Two Wooks to Go Until Election; County Commissioner Races Spur Interest
The beat of the political tomtoms is sounding closer and louder and will gain in volume daily with the July 2 primary election only two weeks from the coming Tuesday.
The campaign is just entering the final stretch drive, is past the casual, unhurried stages and is now getting down to the earnest business of lining up votes from among a population that hasn't swung too evidently in any directions yet.
Locally the prospect brightens for a fairly heavy vote. Political rallies were held last week at Vanoss and Stonewall and are scheduled for Tuesday night, June 18, at Roff, and Thursday night, June 20, at Byng.
In the county the campaigning is concentrated on the three county commissioner candidacies.
Registration for the July 2 vote continues, with the registration
Seriod ending next Saturday, une 22.
As is usual when there is a governor’s race, that part of the campaign sets the pace for the others. By press, radio, personal contact and by organizing of workers, the leading seekers after the gubernatorial chair are seizing the attention of the voters. The congress race also has its share of concern.
And so confused are political lines this year, fewer than usual at this stage of the campaign are willing to venture any bold predictions on outcome, other than the candidates themselves and their working supporters.

Molotov In Switch Over Austria Now
Boody to Discuss Austrian Problem But Wonts Close Watch Kept on Italy
By JOSEPH DYNAN
PARIS, June 15, (^P>—Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov agreed today to add Austria to the foreign ministers conference agenda, then insisted that the Italian political situation be watched to prevent a regrowth of fascism into full scale civil war, American and British informants said.
In a sudden and surprising concession as the ministers reopened their discussions on peace treaties with former enemy states, Molotov reversed soviet policy as expressed throughout sessions last month and consented to study Austria as “a problem.”
Molotov objected to confining the Austrian question to the American-sponsored draft treaty which Washington had circulated among the other powers—France, Russia and Britain.
Must Prevent Fascism He maintained that recent events in Italy reflected an attempt by monarchists and fascists to overthrow the republic, and cited the declaration of. Moscow in 1934 to justify allied intervention in Italian affairs to prevent a rebirth of fascism, American informants said.
In 1943 the foreign ministers of Britain, the United States and Russia issued a declaration on Italy saying that fascism must be destroyed and the Italians given an opportunity to have representative government.
* The Soviet foreign minister asked the council to add the Italian situation to the agenda as a preliminary to intervention if events justified such a course.
U. S. Not Convinced U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes replied that the United States had no objection if events really justified such action, but added that official information available to the United States showed that the Italian government now had the situation in hand and was successfully upholding the republic, American sources said.
The suggestion to place Austria on the agenda as a “simple problem” was made by the French, and Molotov concurred. Austria was placed on the agenda for discussion after consideration of peace treaties with Italy, Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary, and a study of the German problem. The Italian political problem will follow Austria.
The ministers met for two and a half hourse in their initial session, then adjourned until Monday.
Molotov’s concession on Austria, which the United States views as the key to a settlement in central Europe, injected an upsurge of optimism in conference circles.
As they began their conference some informants expressed the belief that the United States had prepared a dramatic move which would lead either to a satisfactory compromise or a complete break with the system of major power unanimity.

Danger Is Real
“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.* ” the mayor said in giving a reference to those who are in doubt.
Alleys, trash and garbage cans, cow barns, horse lots, open sewage and out-door toilets will be sprayed with DDT, but before the spraying starts the clean-up program must be successful.
Ada citizens have been asked by the mayor to cut weeds and grass and to rake all trash into piles for collection Thursday, June 20. One week later, Thursday, June 27, the spray program will start.
Effective For Weeks
When the actual spraying gets underway, the mayor points out, garbage cans must be clean and empty so that the best results can be derived from the spraying. Full garbage cans cannot be sprayed effectively.
When asked how long the DDT spray will be effective Mayor Dodds said that he hoped it would be effective until the first of August when items may possibly be sprayed again.
“Without the assistance of the citizens of Ada, the program will be useless,” the mayor asserted.
The P-TA women making the house«to house collection campaign will cover only the residential section of town, but business men who will not be visited for donations can cooperate with the campaign by sending or taking donations to the city clerk’s office in Convention hall.

By Th# Associated Presa
America’s merchant fleets began to move again last (Sat.) night along the Atlantic seaboard, the gulf coast and the Great Lakes as seamen voted overwhelmingly to accept the maritime strike settlement reached in Washington just before the Friday midnight deadline.
