What Lands Being Brought Into City
Three Ordinances Bring Into City One Area East Of Broadway Avenue and North of King's Road

Conferees Agree E pe ty that 1 es just east of To Exempt 18-Year Olds from Draft
WASHINGTON, June 20.—UP) —A compromise plan for drafting 19 year olds and exempting those of 18 under legislation extending selective service was agreed to today by a senate-house conference committee.
The agreement, a victory for house conferees, was reported by Senator Bridges (R-NH), who stepped outside the closed door conference before it was completed.
Bridges said the agreement to allow drafting of 19 year olds was “without any restrictions,” but he did not elaborate.
With this decided, the conference group was expected to make

Ordinance No. 755 includes land just to the east of the land included in Ordinance No. 754.
To find a starting point, travel 165 feet east from the corner of Broadway and Kings Road. From the starting point, the ordinance includes land that is 295 feet east, 660 feet north, 295 feet west, 660 feet to the south to the starting point. Property included in this ordinance is owned by M. O. Matthews and Aubrey M. Kerr.

-liar'*, “reprehensible” and ‘lobbying” had been hurled back and forth by the house conferees.
This senator said house members opposed to drafting 18 year-olds had sharply criticized the action of Senator Gurney (R-SD) in using war department radio facilities to contact Rep. Walter G. Andrews (R-NY) and obtain a change in his proxy.
Thomas told reporters that the senate compromise offer to draft 18 year olds only as a last resort had been rejected 3 to 3 by the house conferees with Andrews’ proxy not voted.
He said he would ask the senate representatives later today to vote on the house offer to take 19 year olds and exempt those of 18.
The vote from Andrews, who is en route to the Bikini A-bomb test, had been expected to end the existing impasse in the conference group, but members today predicted additional fireworks before a decision.
Both senate and house representatives. named to iron out differences over draft extension legislation, said tremendous pressure was being brought upon Rep. Brooks (D-La.) to stand pat on the house compromise proposal to induct 19 year olds but to provide unconditional exemption for youths of 18.
Brooks told a reporter he hoped senate conferees would accept this plan “because the house first put the limit at 20 years, the senate put it at 18, and 19 is a fair compromise.”
If this fails to settle the dispute —and the senate conferees said it will fail—Brooks said he “might go along with a provision that would allow the president to go below 19 years in an emergency.”

New Violence Puts Tel Aviv Out Of Bounds for Troops
JERUSALEM, June 20.—(ZP)— The Jewish city of Tel Aviv was proclaimed out of bounds today for all British troops, except military police and patrols, following a new outbreak of violence which resulted in the death of a 35-year-old Jew'.
The killing brought the three-day death toll in Palestine to 22 Jews and three Britons.
Palestinian Arabs celebrated the return of the mufti, Haj Amin Al Hussein, to the Middle East in an atmosphere tense with military preparations against further violence in !he week-long revolt of Jewish illegal organizations.
Heavily armed British troops guarded all rail junctions and manned numerous road blocks while the ent ire Palestine countryside teemed with soldiers. Reinforced police and military patrols guarded all streets in Jerusalem and barbed wire barricades were thrown around all public buildings.
Throughout the night searchlights swept the highways, focusing on every passing automobile.
Pamphlets attributed to underground Jewish organizations were pasted in profusion on Jerusalem s walls last night and three unexploded bombs were reported found in the capital city.
The strict curfew on Tel Aviv was lifted after an unsuccessful all-dav search yesterday of the coastal Jewish metropolis for five kidnapped Biitish officers held hostage by the Jewish underground group, Irgun Zvai Leumi. A sixth officer, Maj. H. B. Chadwick of the British headquarters staff in Jerusalem, and a British nurse in Tel Aviv also were still missing and believed kidnapped.

Bowles Biller Over Price Control Bilk
Assails Them as Inflationary "Booby Traps," Hints He's Ready to Resign
WASHINGTON, June 20—(ZP) — Economic Stabilizer Chester Bowles left open today the question whether he will resign if price control bills he regards as inflationary “booby traps” should become law.
He dropped hints aplenty that he is prepared to, but a direct news conference question on the point brought this reply: “President Roosevelt had a good rule for handling that kind o* question. He never would comment. That’s a pretty good rule.”
Asked whether there would be a worse inflation with no price control than under the bills approved by the house and senate. Bowles deplied:
“That’s a hard question to answer. It amounts to, ‘Do I like death by hanging or by having my throat cut?’ ”
Bowles said “none—literally none ’ of the OPA changes now being considered by a house-sen-ate conference committee “seek to strengthen the hand of the government in the fight against inflation.”
To this evaluation of the two bills sent to conference, the stabilization chief added this indication that he will pick up his hat if legislaton unacceptable to him is adopted:
“I could never agree to any compromise which can only bring us one step near inflation.”
Veto Only Alternative
Bowles expressed his views in a statement prepared for release at a news conference. What he had to say followed a round of separate appeals for effective price control by four top government officials — Assistant Secretary of State Acheson, housing Administrator Wyatt, Secretary of Commerce Wallace and Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach.
Bowles reiterated that “if the bill which finally comes from the congress is clearly inadequate to deal with the inflationary forces we are facing, the only remaining hope is a firm and unequivocal veto” by President Truman.
A veto, he added, might then be followed by house and senate action allowing “effective price and rent controls to continue as they are for another year.” The present legislation expires June
“Good Bill” Necessary
Bowles expressed the opinion that with “a good bill, free of dangerous compromise and comer cutting, we can maintain relatively stable prices and rente during coming months.”
a “weekend” bill, he said, the cost of living is bound to move upward at an increasing tempo,” and “we could only look forward to renewed labor unrest, further strikes, further delays in production, prolonged shortages and sharply increased tension between farmers, white collar workers and factory workers.” Bowles said "his greatest concern is that the public’s “confusion over the various proposed amendments “will result in a price control act which may look innocent enough but which would inevitably blow up in our faces twm or three months from now.” He said an amendment which would remove ceilings June 30 on meat, dairy products, poultry and eggs is “so obviously disastrous’ that he is confident the conference committee will eliminate it.
,fear* Bowles declared, is that ‘less dramatic but equally dangerous” amendments may go unnoticed. These, he added, “are lu booby traP amendements,” the ‘delayed action bombs,” and ie, . ‘ amendments in sheep’s clothing.”
Amendments He Fears
i e classified these as follows*
1. Price-raising proposals for manufacturers which he said would “begin to explode in an unending stream of higher prices all across the board”
2. Elimination of wholesaler and retailer cost absorption.
3 Restrictions on textile and clothing controls and elimination of the requirement that manufacturers produce inexpensive garments.
4. Amendments which set up procedures for removal of price controls. He cited cigarettes as an example, and said that coffee, after removal of ceilings, might Ko up as much as 15 cents a pound.
5. Amendments which w*ould divide the responsibility for stabilizing the cost of living between OPA and the agriculture department. “Neither the secretary of agriculture nor the price administrator would be able to protect the American people with this wind of half-authority and halfresponsibility,” Bowles said.
6. An amendment requiring the consent of the local federal district attorney before OPA can start any enforcement proceeding. “This,” said Bowles, “would bog down the enforcement of price regulations hopelessly.”

Farm Youths Bring Chicks In to Show
FIVE CENTS THE COPY
C of C Sponsored Program Comes to Its Climax for Year with Show, Sale
Billie Joyce Norton, 13 year old Pickett 4-H club member, exhibi-t d the grand champion cockerel at the poultry show Thursday and the bird was sold to Dr. Ed Granger for $1.50 per pound after Rep. Thomas P. Holt boosted the price to $1 before the price jumper to the selling bid.
Miss Norton has been a 4-H club member four years, but this is the first time she has raised chickens as a project. She successfully raised 47 of the 50 chicks given her. Twenty-three were pullets, which she plans to keep.
After Dr. Granger had paici tile girl $7 for the bird, he walked over to the pen, looked at it and felt of it before turning to the girl and telling her that she could keep the grand champion to put with her flock.
The grand champion last year was purchased by W. M. Emanuel for $2 per pound. The exhibitor. Gilbert Wheelock of the Pleasant Hill 4-H club, placed second with his White Wyandotte this year.
A total of 101 farm youths received 5,050 chickens and 71 of the youngsters exhibited at the show and most of the others reported that they couldn’t bring their birds to Ada to the show.
Elmer Kenison, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, said that all of the cockerels no bought by the owners was sold for 35 cents per pound.

Public Power Foes Active
Threaten to Demo mf Congressional Showdown On Government Ownership
WASHINGTON. June 20. CTV-Public power foes threatened today to demand a congressional showdown on nationalization, or I government ownership, of all the' nation’s electrical energy.
Senator Elmer Thomas (D Ok la.) took the lead with a blunt protest against “piecemeal” treat- I ment of the question. He served; notice that he would attempt to block future appropriations fori public projects until congress lays down an over-all policy.
Thomas told a reporter that congress should study all “the ramifications of nationalization,! including loss of taxes, comparative costs of production, and costs to consumers” before making its decision.
I he Oklahoma legislator said if j nationalization is decided upon, t then negotiations should be open-1 ed with private industry for the [ purchase of their assets to pre-1 vent duplication and resultant* “waste and destruction.”
He estimated the private assets at $18,000,000,000. Thomas said that thus far public projects have been started either in depression or during wartime, and j on recommendation of congress-; ional appropriations committees; rather than after a full study.
His assertions came as the sen- * ate swung into full-dress debate! on funds for two such projects in [ the pending interior appropria-1 bons bill—the Central Valley project in California and the! Southwestern Power admimstra tion.

Tosses in $175,000,000 For Atomic Energy Development, Other Research
By WILLIAM F. ARBOGAST
WASHINGTON, June 20.—(ZF) —A $7,091,034,700 army budget—• biggest ever in peacetime and with an extra $175,000,000 tossed in for atomic energy development —went to the house floor today.
It was almost twice as large as the last pre-war allotment, voted in 1941.
Nearly balancing the extra cash granted the army’s famed Manhattan project which produced the atomic bomb, the aporo-priations committee trimmed $150,000,000 Lorn budget bureau estimates for army - supervised relief and government activities in occupied countries.
The budget bureau had recommended $500 000,000 for the relief-military government program and $200,000,000 for the atomic service. The committee revised the amounts to $350,000,000 and $375,000,000, respectively. The army itself had asked 5397.000,000 for the Manhattan project.
Follows Budget Bureau
Otherwise the committee generally followed the budget bureau’s recommendations for war department funds for the* fiscal year starting July I. Net changes in the big measure represented a reduction of $117,172,729.
The committee approved in full the $1,199,50",OOO allotment for the air corps after hearing General Carl Sp.ritz relate plans for an air force adequate to direct and repel anv surprise attack, to launch a crippling counter-offensive and to back up the land and sea forces.
Hants 70 Air f’ombat Groups
Spaatz, air corps commander, told the committee the minimum post war air force needs TO combat groups b irked bv a pool of at least one air National Guard squadron in each state.
The air forces* cash allotment included $388 776.454 for the purchase of approximately 1046 modern planes and gliders. At the end of April of this year the air forces had 39,000 planes.
The committee boosted the atomic service fund — part of which will be used to pay for contracts into th'* fiscal year 1943— after hearing army heads outline plans to maintain development activities at their present level and to pn*ss vigorous research into peacetime possibilities of the newly-developed power source.
Funds approved by the committee. subject to house action when the bdl if considered tomorrow, contemplate an aerage army strength of 1.279,000 for the coming fiscal year, with a total of 1,070.000 on June 30, 1947.
Strong National Guard
Backing up these active force* would bt* a National Guard of 240,000 officers and men, an air National Guard of 47.646, organized reserves of 1.053,000. and a reserve officers training corps of 157,100 students.
For the National Guard the committee recommended S110.-009,000; for the organized reserves $56,000,000, and for the ROTO $16,872,000.
For other army research programs in addition to the atomic energy project, the committee approved $281.500,OOO.
Funds For Army Base*
For permanent construction work at army bases in Alaska, the Marianas, the Philippines, Hawaii and Okinawa it granted the full budget estimate of $195,000,000.
The bill was accompanied by publication of 1.200 printed page* of testimony t.iken during its consideration. Witnesses ranged from Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson and General Eisenhower down through the lower civilian and military echelons.
