Ban On Daily Attacks In Congress On Russia
WASHINGTON, March 15.—(AP)—The house leadership signalled for a halt today in the almost daily round of speeches critical of Russia or other World War II allies of the United States.
There was no formal action, but party leadens passed the word that they feel the present delicate international situation calls for temperance in references to United Nations members.
Privately, they told reporters they were disturbed by repeated “inflammatory speeches, aimed mostly at Russia.”
There is no intent or desire to curtail the right of members to free speech on the house floor, they said, but the time is not appropriate for what one of them
In recent weeks there have been almost daily jabs at Russia in one-minute house speeches. Great Britain also has come in for criticism, particularly since Winston Churchill’s speech at Fulton, Mo.
Oklahoma Bees Just Gotta Have Sugar During Winters
They're Robbed of Honey in Summer, Hove to Be Fed In Winter—end Sorghum Flavors Honey They Stere
By GENE POTES
OKLAHOMA CITY, March 15.—(AP)—While the sugar shortage is causing inconvenience for housewives, it causes near disaster for tnt bees, because it s all they’ve got to live on during the winter months.
* Joe C. Scott, president of the state board of agriculture, said today that the number of bee hives in Oklahoma has been reduced 25 per cent this winter because beekeepers are unable to get sugar to feed the bees.
The trouble is, Scott says, that the bees have to have cane sugar for winter feeding. If they are given sorghum or some other form of sweetening, they'll store some of it away in the hives with the typical bee eye for a rainy day, and the honey later stored away in the summer season will taste of the sorghum.
Cane Sugar Blends The cane sugar taste, on the other hand, blends with the honey sa nobody can tell the difference.
That's the bee that Oklahoma beekeepers will attempt to put in the OPA’s bonnet when they meet here Tuesday to form a state association. The sugar ration for bee-feeding is handled on a local basis by ration boards, and where the boards don't understand why the bees should be cut in on the short sugar supply, the bees have to go without their winter food.
After all, points out Scott, the bees are robbed of their own savings of honey every year, so it’s only fair to try to keep them eating during the winter.
Big Industry Involved “We’ve got a $2,000,000-a-year honey industry in Oklahoma right now,” Scott said. “We’re trying to build it up to a $5,000,-000 industry, but we can't do it if we can’t maintain the bees. Now it’s in the process of declining, unless we can do something about it”
The beekeepers also will try to find a means of combatting diseases which are hampering operation of hives in the state, Scott

, Judge Challenges Anyone to Diagram Sentence by OPA
OKLAHOMA CITY, March 15. —fZP}—F e d e r a I District Judge Bower Broaddus today challenged an attorney to find an English teacher in Oklahoma City schools who could diagram a sentence in an OPA telegram from Washington on the basis of which an OPA suit was being argued.
“No justification under enforcement instruction No. 7 for settlement which does not involve payment to full extent of financial ability to pay or for consent judgment for single damages.”
Broaddus admitted that he had first believed that the sentence authorized the OPA to settle the case for single damages, then decided it did not.
W. L. Murphy, attorney for the lumber company involved, accepted the challenge and said he would have the diagram tomorrow*. The suit had asked treble damages, but following receipt of the telegram Murphy and the OPA agreed to settle for single damages.
Sidney Feinburg, Washington OPA official, then testified in a disposition he had not intended to authorize any settlement short °[ „ treble damages or financial ability to pay, and the OPA sought to 'withdraw the settlement. Murphy sought to dismiss the OPA motion, but Broaddus balked, saying he now believes the sentence meant the suit could not be settled for single damages.

KHomMang Waits Friendship of Reds
Alto Wonts Renovation Of Chinese Government Machinery
By SPENCER MOOSA
CHUNGKING, March 15.—(TP) —The Kuomintang congress today formally urged the Chinese government to foster true friendship with Russia.
A resolution adopted by the party meeting said this friendship should be based on a respect for China’s sovereign rights and the preservation of world peace.
The action was taken after the congress heard charges from several government officials that Soviet forces extended their stay in Manchuria in violation of one agreement after another and looted the territory.
The party congress, in session since March I, postponed adjournment until tomorrow. It had been scheduled to conclude today.
Other resolutions adopted called for renovation of government machinery, particularly by elimination of unnecessary bureaus and abolition of nepotism, and for a greater measure of self-government for Sinkiang, Mongolia and Tibet
Meanwhile the communist new China Daily News reported government troops and underground forces had launched “ferocious attacks” against “democratic” (pro-communist) troops in the suburbs of Mukden.
The publication alleged the 22nd division of the new Sixth Army wrested three towns from the communists in eastern Lia-boning, and asserted government troops attacked the communist-held village of Tangtaikon, 30 miles southwest of Mukden, where it said fighting was still in progress.

OTTAWA. Mar. 15. ^-Canada accused a member of its parliament today St violating the official secrets act and charged four government scientific workers with transmitting confidential war secrets to Russia, including details of a super - explosive known as “RDX.’r Fred Rose, known as the only communist ever elected to the Canadian house of commons, was arrested after a parliament session last night and formally charged today. Rose belongs to labor progressive party, which absorbed the communist party when it was banned in wartime. The Montreal labor leader had held communist offices in Canada, and had spent six months in Russia, lecturing youth groups.
Connection Definite Supt. Josephat Brunet of the royal Canadian mounted police said in Montreal that charges a-gainst Rose “most definitely” were connected with the espionage case.
The royal commission, in a second interim report depicting Soviet agents as trying to ferret the war secrets of Canada and the United States, said Dr. Raymond Boyer, assistant professor of chemistry at McGill university, had admitted giving Russia full information on his secret work with “RDX.”
“He said that with this information, competent persons would be in a position to design a plant to produce the material in quantity,” the commission said. Boyer was accused of transmitting his secrets early in 1942 and into 1944, while Russia and Canada were allied in the death strug-1 gle against Germany.
“Other Loyalty’* First The four persons previously accused were minor government a1 workers, who were charged with working with the Moscow-directed espionage ring to obtain data on the atomic bomb, radar, electronics and the disposition of numerous United States corps divisions which lately had fought the Germans. Five persons, other than the eight already named, still are under investigation.
“Some witnesses holding strategic positions have made the significant statement, under oath, that they had a loyalty which took priority over the loyalty owed by them to their own country and, for that reason, they acted as they did and would have continued so to act had they not been detected,” the commission said.

Big 'lins At City Lake
Wayne Vickers Ups Recent Mark With 6i Found Bott
Wayne Vickers, local fireman, is the leading fisherman in Ada now since he went out to the city lake and returned with a six and a quarter pound bass.
The huge fellow was caught the next morning after Julian Henry caught a five and a quarter pounder. Henry had also been fishing at the city lake.
Vickers was using a Tony Aceta Weed Dodger bait (not available in Ada) when he happened on the large fellow, or at least that is the bait that he said he was using.
Like other fishermen, Vickers is slightly inclined to stretch the truth when it comes to telling about his fishing experiences.
However, it has been verified by several sources that he did bring a six and a quarter pound bass into Ada, reporting that he caught it at the lake.
The fishermen went out to the lake after 7 a.m. and was back in town before 8:30 a.m. The large one was the only fish he caught.
Midnight Deadline, Many Yet la Hie tacoma Tai Retantt
WASHINGTON, March 15. MB —Millions of Americans—possibly 20.000,000 or more—must file tax returns by midnight tonight or face penalties.
A revenue bureau spokesman hazarded a “rough guess” that hardly more than hSlf the approximately 50,000,000 individuals who must file returns on 1945 income did so before today.
Of these who did, however, 7,-500,000 already have received refunds totaling more than $300,-000,000—an average of $40 each— the bureau said, promising all refunds will be paid by July 4.
A minority of those yet to file before the midnight deadline— perhaps a fifth of them—must also file estimates of 1946 income. In general, these are:
1. Persons earning more than $5,000 in wages annually.
2. Wage-earners getting more than $100 in income from other sources.
3. Non-wage earners earning over $500 a year, who do not have taxes deducted under the withholding act.
Treasury figures show all income tax collections since the start of the year have been higher than last year, running around $6,300,000,000 so far mis year against around $6,000,000,000 for the corresponding period of 1945.

TEHRAN, March 14,—(Delayed )—(/P>—Gen. Ahmed Se pc h bod Amir Ahmedi, minister of war, said today the Iranian army was “ready to Tight to the last man” if Russian troops move toward Tehran from Karaj. 20 miles northwest of here, where he said trainloads of troops and ammunition are arriving nightly.
“Iran has shown to the world it is a peaceful nation, but if Russia commits an overt act, now only every soldier but every boy and girl in the streets will fight to defend their capital,” the general said in an interview immediately following an audience with Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran.
The Shah, he said, plans to present the Iranian question again to the United Nations security council, which will meet in New York City later this month.
Ahmedi said the Russian garrison at Karaj had been “increased fourfold” and that there was “three times as many Russians in Azerbaijan as a month ago. *
He termed the reported concentration of troops and equipment a “definite threat to Tehran” and added that all necessary precautions were being taken to meet it,
'Tito general said that Iranians would not “go out to meet the Russians or even erect fortifications outside the city.”
“Iran’s intentions are only peaceful, but our national security is at stake,” he added. ‘Tehran will be defended to the last man —even boys and girls will help— if this extreme and unlikely measure becomes necessary.

Lindy (Rabbit) Goodwin, who was arrested Thursday morning at Eufaula on a warrant issued at Mena, Ark., was returned to Ada Thursday afternoon by Chief of Police Dud Lester, who wanted to question him on some incidents in Ada.
He admitted entering a business firm at Antlers last October and taking a check protector, in addition to several other items, but he made no comment as to whether or not he took $20 in change that was missing at the same time.
Chief Lester tried to connect him with several robberies in Ada, but Goodwin denied having anything to do with the case of which the police chief questioned.
Goodwin told Chief Lester that he didn’t want to return to Arkansas to face burglary charges there. Mena authorities allege that Goodwin took several cases of whiskey from a whiskey store, transported them to Oklahoma w^ere he disposed of the stolen property.
Antlers authorities are expected in Ada to further question Goodwin about other robberies at Antlers.
The check protector that Goodwin admits taking from the Antlers firm was the one used by bogus check writers that were caught in Ada a couple of moths

McDermott said that the U S. communication mentioned not only the Russian loan request, but reviewed in detail the entire economic and commercial relationship between the two countries.
