By The Associated Press
The red earth of Oklahoma will yield its greatest wheat crop in history in this year of threatened W'orld food shortage, the U. S. department of agriculture predicted Thursday.
An all-time record crop of 87,-188,000 bushels of the needed grain was indicated on the basis of a special June 15 condition report. the department said.
This figure compares with the all-time record yield of 85,914,000 bushels produced in 1944.
Far Over IO-Year Average
The estimate soared far above the ten - year average production for the state—topping it by more than 33,000.000 bushels. The average, for the years 1935 through 1944, is 53,306,000 bushels.
And, said Federal Statistician K. D. Blood, the best part of it all is the fact that forty per cent of the crop had been harvested when he made his estimate— and a week of harvesting has gone by since then.
“Almost without exception,” Blood gloated, “harvested fields had yields higher than expected.
“On June 14 about forty per cent of the state crop had been harvested and it was easy to make this predicition.”
Some Fields “Terrific”
Blood estimated the average yield per acre at 15 bushels but added that some fields had made unbelievable crops.
In one small two-acre held, 92 bushels of wheat were harvested and yields of 35 and 45 bushels per acre have been numerous, Blood added.
The federal statistician said rains, which fell when needed, and perfect harvest weather, which came at just the right time, pulled the wheat crop out of the ditch to which early predictions had consigned it.
In the period from June I to 15, alone, the estimate of production climbed 15,000,000 bushels. Roots Went To Subsoil
In the early part of the season, dry weather forced the wheat plants to send roots down to subsoil moisture, Blood said in explaining the unexpected increase in yield.
This caused the plants to develop large root systems and small spears. Then, when rains came later, the moisture went into the development of kernels instead of the support of oversized plants and the yield soared, he added.
The estimated yield for the entire United States was placed at 1,033,139,000 bushels compared to the 1,250.000,000 iood officials would be needed to meet all famine-relief export goals and to permit removal of present limitations on home use of wheat.
Summer to Meet Cool Receplion
today, killing at least five persons and injuring scores more.
The blast, believed to have been in a boiler and aggravated by ammonia from shattered pipes in the air conditioning system, scattered plate glass and other debris among pedestrians and into a nearby parking lot. The entire east side of the building was wrecked, and an adjoining one under construction was wrecked.
Scores were overcome by the fumes, and many trapped in upper floors were rescued by firemen who had to don gas masks to fight their way into the building.
Call 38 Ambulances
Downtown streets were blocked off to permit free movement of 38 ambulances called to the hotel, one of the largest in the southwest.
Thousands of spectators jammed to the scene, impeding rescue work.
Downtown streets were blocked off to allow free movement of at least 38 ambulances rushed to the hotel.
Glass, Lumber Scattered
At noon, injured were still being taken from the hotel, one of the largest in the southwest, and an adjoining parking lot, where many were injured when the blast scattered plate glass and lumber among pedestrians.
C. V. Allen, of Waco, was standing across the street at the time. He gave this eyewitness description:
“There was a dull, heavy thud, something like a dynamite explosion. The glass windows bulged out, and several bystanders on the sidewalk were cut.
“There was a lot of excitement, and it seemed that every policeman, fireman and ambulance in Dallas began to arrive.
A bellhop who would not give his name said he saw the explo
a day on June 26 because the food situation had improved. He said 130,000 tons of food were expected from the United States this month for the American occupation zone.
(In Washington, war t’.epart-ment officials said the present strength of American occupation forces in Germany and Austria is approximately 300,000.
(Estimates given congress in January by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. chief of staff, called for a net force of 307.000 in Europe before July I. aside from 28,000 in Italy.)
The American commander in Europe told a news conference that American sources had supplied 562,550 tons of food for German civilians from last August to June I. He said the ration could be raised to 1.550 calories a day if monthly imports from the United States increased to 150,-000 tons.
McNarney said the American proposal to appoint a four power commission to investigate German disarmament was deadlocked hopelessly and would be referred by occupation authorities to the foreign ministers in Paris. The Russians were understood to have blocked the proposal because it contained a clause for investigation of the economic phase of disarmament.
He said occupation authorities also looked to the foreign ministers “to try to solve the stalemated issue of recognizing Germany a.i an economic entity.”

House, Senate To Vote Soon
Coils for 18-Ycor Olds Po Be Exempted, 19-Year Olds To Be Inducted
By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON
WASHINGTON. June 21.—^ —The slam-bang congressional struggle over peacetime drafting of teen-agers subsided near a compromise finish today with 19-vear olds on *e more subject to call and youths of 18 exempt.
Only the usual house and senate approval of the hard-fought conference agreement was needed to assure a nine months extension of selective service beyond the end of this month.
Speaker Rayburn (D-Tex) saw a slight chance the house might act late today if two pending bills could be cleared, but it appeared more probable the measure would not tx' reached before next Monday or Tuesday.
Floor Bittie Promised
A floor battle against accepting the compromise was promised by Rep. Short (R-Mo), lone member of the 14 senate and house conferees whose signature did not appear on the final compromise.
“There is no need at all to extend the wartime draft.” Short told reporters. “I am unalterably opposed to taking any teen-agers and I also favor holding up all inductions fo** a few months as previously voted by the house majority.”
Despite Short’s last ditch opposition, congressional leaders ex-
