Two trucks loaded with DDT have sprayed two districts of the city and at each stop the item sprayed gets a bath of the solu-tion that helps eradicate flies. Mayor Dodds started the fly eradication program several days ago and found the publics ready to cooperate in the program that is designed to help prevent Infantile Paralysis. The DDT is sprayed on gar-page cans and any other place that might be a location for fly breeding. The mayor said that the spraying would have possibly been completed Saturday afternoon if the process had not been stopped bv rain that fell Friday night. Spray truck operators have been having some difficulty spraying all the places that they thought best because a number of small houses and barns were locked when the trucks stopped.

Parker, county commissioner for district I, and George R. Collins, commissioner for district 2. This makes the second project in each district. Contracts will be let by the state commission as soon as engineering work is done and construction should get under way this summer, according to present plans. The project in Mr. Parker’s dis-*s sou^ and southwest of Allen and constitutes a little more than five miles. The road begins south of Allen on High-way 48, goes west one mile, a half mile south and west almost two miles to the intersection with Highway 12 at Lakeside. Another Roes north to Allen and extends a half mile within the city limits of Allen so as to connect with Highway 48. Fills Gap This road will connect Highways 12 and 48 with a WPA road rn Hughes county, going east to Certy. It will fill in a gap in he roads around Allen, giving the* farmers in that area direct contact with Allen and the highway leading out of Allen in two or three directions. Another part of this project in Mr. Parker’s district is 4V2 miles just north and east of Ada t starts three miles north of i? Roes east a    and a half from the pavement on Highway 99 and then comes south tnree miles to the country club corner. This touches the edge of some oil production on the north end and comes through a heavily populated district. Opens Area The road in Mr. Collins’ district begins at Highway 13 south of Be bee, goes 3.2 miles north, west two miles, and north three miles going by Worstell school and by the Maxwell cemetery. It will open up an area in the northwest part of the county that has been to a gi eat extent shut off in bad weather. It will be 8.2 miles long. It will serve three school districts. A-Bomb Test Plans Are Set Boring Storm, Bomb Will Be Dropped Approximately At 3:30 P. M. CST By DON WHITEHEAD ABOARD U. S. S. APPALA-^B^AN, BIKINI, Sunday, June 30, <.P)— Despite a sudden cloudily «p JLn the weather Vice Adm. * j    Bland>' gave the signal today for the start of history’s ?ireajes* military experiment— the dropping of an atomic bomb on the target fleet in Bikini lagoon. The atomic test force commander announced that barring a storm the bomb would be dropped at approximately 8:30 a. rn Monday. Bikini time (3:30 p. m Sunday central standard time.) (Radio reports from Bikini said Admiral Blandy had advanced the time of the drop one hour.) The evacuation of Bikini la-! goon is now under way. Vessels To Open Sea Some 40,000 military personnel, scientists, correspondents and observers must be clear of the lagoon by 5 p. rn., leaving only skeleton crews to make last-minute adjustments to the scores of instruments, cameras and recording equipment aboard ships and on islands of Bikini atoll. The bulk of the non-target fleet is steaming out of the lagoon. which only a few months ago was a little known region inhabited by a few score natives who have been evacuated to another island. Patrol ships are busy shepherding^ vessels into the open sea. Every ship and every man must be out of the lagoon two hours before the bomb is detonated. Ghost Fleet Left Then all that will be left will be the ghost fleet—silent ships on which there will be no human being. The craft will stand a-round the bulls eye Nevada as guinea pigs qf the first test of atomis power against ships. Presumably, engineers began preparing to load the atomic bomb aboard the B-29 “Davos Dream’ shortly after Blandy made his decision on the weather. As soon as possible after daybreak, the pilot of the superfortress Major Woodrow P. Swan-cut t of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis — will take off and the fleet of aircraft assigned to the show will begin maneuvering into position. I he other planes will carry cameras. recording instruments, newsmen, observers and members of President Truman’s evaluation commission and the joint chiefs of staff evaluation board. The human beings nearest the explosion probably will be those aboard the Mt. McKinelv, some eight miles from the point of blast.    • Planes In Area * No Action Is Taken By Congress on Bill a a a Fight Is Not House Affirms Over President Veto, Adjourns Tells Public Until Monday WASHINGTON, June 29, L'P—    Bv Th# Associated Press Pnce and rent controls come to WASHINGTON, June 29.— a halt at midnight Sunday, but —Price and rent controls come president Truman told the people at least temporarily, at mid* tonight that the fight for them nifiht Sunday.
