(Continued on Page 9 Column 67 An Election On Tuesday School District to Vote On Building Fund Levy; Morrison Explains Pion There will be an election in Ada on Tuesday, June 25. On that day, voters of School District 19, which includes Ada and some adjoining territory, will ballot on a five-mill building fund levy. All voting will be done at Convention hall. Supt. Rex O. Morrison explains that it is similar to the one voted a year ago that has raised approximately $30,000 in building funds. But such accumulation of building funds, he explains further, school officials here hope and plan to acquire such funds without necessity of a bond issue which would require payment of interest over 20 years along with the principal. Ada’* growth and expansion hive already crowded local schools, especially the grade schools, seriously, the superintendent says. Two of the older buildings are in need of replacement and any building program will call for providing for Ada’s increasing number of school children. Registration Periods for Ada Residents Overlap for Time Two More Days To Complete Trash Collection Here Ada’s trash collection drive which was supposed to be completed Monday is going to take an extra day. according to Mayor Luke Dodds. Saturday the trucks were out for their third day and the amount of trash being picked up was much heavier than expected. The northwest and southwest part of town along with the negro section had been covered by Saturday evening, leaving only half the city cleaned up. Trucks will cover the northeast section Monday and the southeast part next Tuesday and it is hoped that all the trash can br collected by then. This collection is made in connection with the fly eradication program which begins Thursday. Trained men operating the best of equipment will then spray all garbage cans, horse lots and other fly breeding locations with DDT. Residents of the city are urged to have their garbage containers empty and clean by Thursday morning. * *- Three Groups Hil Al Bowles' Plan WASHINGTON, June 22, ED— Three organizations representing cattle raisers and milk producers today expressed “strong disapproval and resentment” of Chester Bowles’ effort to get a one year strike truce from labor in return for stabilized prices. The three—the American National Livestock Association, the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Hausers Association and the National Cooperative Milk Producers Federation—issued a joint statement in which they said: “If the government follows the outlined bv Mr. Bowles, it means— ‘1. Appeasement of one branch of our societv bv the virtual enslavement of agriculture. «0^a^TegmentSoCfUs^iet?’ tot-    °F    °f rn""* and Unenfor~»We "booby traps" byd“uzdation of' agricultifre°for'the particular a S™2ltaneJsTy, the" conferees benefit of those who Cse thos!    ,hfle/ycIves    in    ag"*- products and to the material det-1 Gf dispute    * maj0r P°ints pfoduce They will meet again Monday 1 Speciol Elections Making This Unusual Registration, Voting Year Hera Citizens of Ada who ara otherwise qualified for voting are having more opportunities than usual to register this week. For the entire county, registration for the first primary of July 2 ended Friday at midnight. June 23, which is today, opens the registration period for the runoff primary of July 23. That left a small gap—but wait! Ada voters cast their ballots July 2 on members of the new city council and on July 14 in the run-off election for council places, and as registration begins 30 days and closes IO days before an election the period for that July 16 council race run-off started back somewhere about June 15 or 16 and continues until July 6. So there was an overlap of registration after all. Unless some special election bobs up between the July 23 runoff vote and the general election of Nov. 5, the registrars won’t have to stay so close to home until 30 days before Nov. 5. Registration in the city of Ada has been almost continuous since early spring—there was the city primary in March, followed three weeks later by the city run-off primary for election of city commissioners.* Then there was the vote in May on whether or not the voters would accept the freeholder board s recommendations for a charter change. So, for Ada especially, this has been a registering, votin’ year sure enough. -lr—-- We wonder what made people ring door bell', before there were bath tubs for folks to sit in. —-lr—-.

Races Spked By Laie Charges Among Seme of Leaders County Rocos Pushing Into Prominence New; Two Bollies This Week With the Louis-Conn affair out I of the way, attention here is turning steadily to the winding up of this year’s political melee, reaching its finale a week from Tuesday, on July 2. On beyond that date stretches, for many candidates, the prospect of arduous campaigning until the run-off primary of July 23, but that period is getting little consideration as the closing drive for votes for July 2 hits its peak. Two county rallies are scheduled for this week — Tuesday night, June 25, at Fitzhugh and Thursday night, June 27, at Steedman. The big closing county rally will be held in Glenwood Park on Monday night, July I. Apathy Disappears Instead of the apathy evident generally in earlier weeks, the rampaign is nearing fever heat, and already there is talk of a big vote. Leading the parade of vote-seekers are the men wanting the nomination for governor. One of them, William Coe, is scheduled to speak in Ada next Wednesday night, at Glenwood Park. Lunsford P. Livingston, Seminole, campaigning for democratic nomination as Fourth district congressman, Friday night spoke here, making a vigorous plea for votes in the coming primary He is a veteran of World War II, is an attorney and is making his first racfe for congress.

Boren is challenged oy several opponents this year, all of them from “across the river” and all seeking the vote of Pontotoc, Coal and Johnston counties on this side of South Canadian. The three county commissioner races continue to furnish most of the fuel for the county candidacies, although the races for sheriff, district judge and county treasurer are contributing a portion of interest. The leaders in the state campaigning are stirring up last-stretch ammunition that threatens to make the finish of the races as sizzling as the weather is likely to be along about voting day. {JALLAN^TTi^MPORARY HEAD OF OIL ADVISORY WASHINGTON, June 22.

FIVE CENTS THE COPY  OPA And Draft Continuance Meeting ST Up For Decision This Week Soys Foreign Ministers Not For Enough Along In * Work; Byrnes Wonts It Soon By JOSEPH DYNAN PARIS, June 22.—EP)—Russia rejected today another American attempt to convoke the general European peace conference July 15 on grounds that the conference of foreign ministers was not yet far enough along in its work, an American informant said. The ministers then decided to set next Friday as a deadline for work on the Italian and Balkan treaties, and to speed up their activities by meeting twice daily instead of once. Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov said he would be ready at the end of next week to size up the council’s progress to date, French informants added. Byrnes For Action Now U. S. Secretary of State James F. Byrnes appealed for the ministers to send out invitations now to the 21-nation peace conference, to keep in session right up to July 15 if necessary, and to let the larger conference pass on any differences which still remain, British and American sources said. Byrnes declared that the ministers were so near agreement on peace treaties that there could be no harm in sending out invitations now, an American said. Roff Pioneer Club Meets Here source Byrnes told the ministers that if they could not agree on the treaties they should admit their failures and let someone else take over—the larger peace conference or the United Nations assembly, the American informant said. Left Off Trieste Today By tacit consent the conference did not consider the keystone question of Trieste and the Italo-Yugoslav frontier at today’s session, which was devoted mainly to issues of procedure, informants said. It was believed that the ministers were awaiting further developments iii Washington and Moscow on last night’s private dinner talks between Byrnes and Molotov, which were followed today by a transatlantic telephone conversation between Byrnes and President Truman. Molotov was expected to consult with Moscow. New Materials For Yet Housing Soon Government to Dismantle Surplus Army Comps, Plants for Materials WASHINGTON, June 22, ED— Wholesale dismantling of surplus army camps and other projects to provide material for veterans’ housing will begin shortly, the government announced tonight. The program is expected to make available enough lumber for 125,000 three bedroom houses, it was estimated informally. The over-all quantity to Le obtained is officially calculated at 1,500,- 000.000 board feet or more. The salvaged lumber is due to begin flowing into housing channels within 60 days. The engineer corps will have 15 dismantling jobs well under way by August I, another 15 by Sept. I and 20 more by October 1, the war assets administration and the national housing agency announced.    -* The encampments and plants to be raised have not been chosen. Most Americans don’t know which side their bread is buttered on, says a college professor. We don’t even know where the bread and butter are. E. C. Student Total Given Summer Session Passing 1,000, of Whom 269 Ara War Veterans Enrollment figures at the college have finally been completed. Harvey Faust, registrar, reports that there are 744 students enrolled in the college in general and about 250 in the Horace Mann training school, which with the addition of the several new students who will attend the Leadership workshop beginning Monday should push the total past 1,000. The largest class by far is the freshman class, which has 284 members. The senior class has 173 members to hold second place while the sophomores are third with 150. The smallest class, strangely enough, is the junior class which has only 137 members. It also has the smallest number of vets enrolled. Of the 269 veterans going to school at Ka: t Central, 115 are married and at present most are making their home in Ada. There are three women vets taking classes. One is an ex-WA VK. one an ex-WAC and the other a member of the Marine Corps Womens Auxiliary. The vets arc fairly well distributed in their classes with the exception of the freshman class which naturally has more, 112 to be exact. Forty-two arc* sophomores, 22 are juniors and 33 hold the rating of seniors. r<wJrHCtUr,ecLab£V?, arTe vvom*" who attended an all day meeting recently of the Roff Pioneer Club in the home of Mrs. F.

Sexton, of Leavenworth, Kas., American military attache in Tehran, returned from Tabriz today and reported that he and three aides were jailed for eight hours by Azerbaijan democrats in the Azerbaijan capital. A spokesman said the American embassy had protested to the Iranian government. Jailed with Sexton were Capt. Archie Roosevelt, grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt, Maj. (’arI P. Carver and Master JI Sgt. David Livingstone. “I am unable to explain the arrest,” Sexton said. He said the Americans went to Tabriz by plane on a flight that had been previously cleared through all competent Iranian authorities, ’including the customs and security officials.” At the same time an official of the Iranian foreign ministry said the Russians remained in control » • Every Member Was In Roff by 1905, Most Of Them Before That Residents and former residents of Roff, who lived in that community before and shortly after the turn of tho century, met May Packed With Vote Effects Whether Congress Does Or Does Not Act, Results Important Politically Now By CLAIR JOHNSON WASHINGTON, June 23.—EP) —Keystone segments of the Truman legislative program—continuation of OPA and the draft— come up next week for congressional judgments that will have heavy political repercussions whichever way they go. Loaders in both Democratic and Republican camps were in agreement today that what they and ttu* president do before next week-end will have big voter significance. But as they tightened belts for a week of heavy sessions on those and other “must” measures, their estimates of how the voters will take it varied right along with their voting plans. Pressure High On OPA Bill The fight over OPA is regarded as the most significant politically. Public interest in this has reached a near-fever pitch and terrific pressure* is being put on both key congressmen and the president regarding the outcome. Also on tap are final votes on a batch of vital appropriation bills and on legislation extending wartime authority for federal allocation of scarce materials. The pressure is on in all these cases because the present laws run out at the end of the fiscal year. June 30.

May Not Reach Agreement The four points still in dispute are fundamental in character. Senator Downey (D.-Calif.), one of the conferees, told a reporter that “an impasse still is possible.” Still to be settled are: I. How long to extend OPA. ~  -»uv    a i x.

Establishment of a decontrol board with authority to override the price administration on lifting of controls from non-agricul-tural products, and the secretary of agriculture on farm commodities. 4. The size and duration of food subsidies. The house voted for a $1,110,000,000 subsidy fund with food subsidies barred after next May I. Dropped One Bowles Idea The conference eliminated a sixth provision recommended by Bowles which would have required OPA to obtain the consent cf the federal district attorney before starting enforcement prosecutions. The five which were approved in spite of Bowles’ denunciation were: A provision declaring that ceilings for producers, manufacturers and processors must reflect their prices during the ba^e period Oct. 1-15, 1941. plus the average increase in unit cost throughout the industry in question since then. A ban against requiring wholesalers and retailers of “reconversion” items such as automobiles and household appliances to take less than the established peacetime mark-ups and discounts. Eliminate OPA “MAP” Elimination of OPA’s “MAP” or maximum average price order which was issued to keep clothing manufacturers producing low-price garments. In a related provision, the conference also approved special price treatment for manufacturers of cotton and woolen textiles. The ceiling would have to include the cost of the raw cotton or wool (not lower than parity), a weighted average of mill conversion costs, and “a reasonable profit” base on 1939-41 earnings. A requirement that price controls come off when supply of a commodity comes into approximate balance with demand. Transfer to the secretary of agriculture of authority to say what farm commodities may be kept under price control. No ceilings could be maintained unless he certified the commodity was in short supply. Marine Surprised When He Found Oui Kindly Mon Who Gove Him 30-Mile Ride to His Home Was Pres. Truman* FREDERICK, Md., June 22, ET*) —The marine was trudging along the road about five miles from Washington today trying to hitch a ride. The day was sultry and he was not having much luck. Finally, however, a long, shiny automobile with its top down stopped and a be-spectacled man in the rear seat smilingly beckoned him to hop in. For the next 30 miles they rode along together. The man seemed interested in the marine’s war record so the devildog told him how he helped take I wo Jima— and was wounded there. The two hit it off in fine style.

At each meeting of the club, members often see acquaintances whom they have not seen in 15 or 20 years and never is there a dull minute during the all day get togethers. The affair this year was the eleventh annual one. More than 30 persons were in attendance from this sect on of the state. One woman from Rocky Ford. Colo., who formerly was a resident at Roff, was a guest at the meeting this year. Visit, Talk Over Old Times Nearly all of the legislators agreed, however, that regardless of what happens it will have a potent effect on the political future of the president and his administration. Draft Issue SUH Hot The draft issue is still a hot one. although most leaders expect passage of the compromise legislation finally approved this veeeic by senate-house conferees.
