Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - May 15, 1946, Ada, Oklahoma WEATHER Clearing: west and north tonight; thunder storms southeast this afternoon and early tonight. THE ADA EVENING NEWS Avrrag* Kct April Paid Clrculatiuj 8131 Member. Audit Bureau of Circulation No Progress In Talks On Rail Strike Meet Briefly Thi* Morning, Recess, Coll Another Meeting Lo ter in Doy WASHINGTON. May 15. CP)— Railroad operator and union negotiators, working to avert a rail strike called for Saturday, recessed after a brief “no progress' session today and called another meeting for later in the day. The talks were resumed last night at tho request of President Truman. Unions represented are the trainmen, engineers, switchmen. conductors, and firemen. All five brotherhoods are seeking a wage increase of $2.50 a day against $1.28 granted by arbitration and fact-finding boards, but only the trainmen and engineers have set a strike. Work-rules also are involved. Nothing To Report A. F. Whitney, president of the trainmen, told reporters the carriers were not ready this morning to submit any proposals and added: "I can't report a thing.” Management representatives stressed the talks were only “recessed’’ and not suspended. WASHINGTON May 15, UF>_ G overnment hopes picked up slightly today for a settlement of the threatened railroad strike before Saturday's walkout deadline. President Truman’s personal intervention, followed by resumption of negotiations at his request and reports of “some progress,” did much to bolster the guarded optimism, but officials still waited anxiously for more positive encouragement from the actual bargaining sessions. Mr. Truman sent representatives of the unions and railroads back to their negotiating after a series of White House conferences yesterday. The disputants met until nearly midnight last night, reported some progress, and scheduled another session for today. The White House has asked them to report back on Friday. In^getting negotiations resumed. Mr. Truman held three separate conferences. First he saw A. F. Whitney, president of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, and Alvanley Johnston, head of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. These two were followed by representatives of the switchmen, firemen and conductors unions.’ Finally came President J. J. Pel-ley and other officials of the Association of American Railroads. Prior to the ccnferences. Martin Miller, legislative representative of the “Big Five” railroad brotherhoods, said that presidential intervention was tile only possibility of averting a rail strike Saturday over issues of pay and other conditions. The \\ hite House conferences had no comment as to what was discussed in their talks with Mr. Truman. Presidential Secretary Cnarles G. Ross announced the result of the conferences in this terse fashion: * All agreed to carry on negotiations concurrently and all will report back Friday with a progress report.”  *-- Pauley Expects To Go lo Soviet Zone Doesn't Expect to Be Kept Out of Koreon Area By DUANE HENNESSY TOK\ O, May 15.—(/Pi—Reparations Commissioner Edwin W. Pauley said today he will go to the Russian occupation boundary in Korea, “knock at the door,” and expects to be admitted to the Soviet zone although Moscow has failed to answer his request. “I shall be there physically,” Pauley told a press conference. “I don't think I am going to be denied.” Reminded that Moscow never has replied to his October request to visit northern Korea to survey Japanese assets. Pauley said simply “we expect to go north of 38.” The 38th parallel is the boundary between American and Russian occupation zones. Americans freely have admitted Russian observers in southern Korea. but Russians have permitted very few Americans in their zone. Asked what Russia could gain by permitting him and his staff to survey former Japanese industry, he remarked “I don’t see any harm in it.” “My trip is an exchange of courtesy, such as we are allowing them. I assume that their desire is the same as ours—to continue these relations.” WEATHER OKLAHOMA — Clearing west and north tonight; thunder storms southeast this afternoon and early tonight; cooler tonight; lowest lower 40’s Panhandle to 50 east and south; fair Thursday, warmer northwest in afternoon. An Appeal As everyone knows, there is an acute housing shortage in Ada, as well as throughout the entire country; and it is apparent that the attendance in any college or university this summer and next fall will be the number of students that the institution can house in its own accommodations and in private homes. East Central is erecting some apartment houses, and will erect some more before the fall term begins. But it is apparent that it cannot provide enough housing for students who want to enter—students that the College needs. We are, therefore, compelled to appeal for help from the people of Ada. Anyone who has a room that could be rented for the summer term beginning May 27 or who has an apartment should phone the College, Phone Number 3040. We are not asking that you give this room or apartment. Students will be able to pay a reasonable rental for such accommodations, although they cannot be expected to pay inflated prices. If you have a room or an apartment that you can make available for students, please phone us, telling us the number of persons you can accommodate and the price of such accommodations. You will render the College a service by doing this. Very respectfully, A. Linscfieid, President. Garbage Trucks To Start Out Thursday At First Will in General Follow Old Schadula Until Accumulated Garboge Cleaned Up; Twice-a-Week Schedule Due Soon; Keep Burnable and Non-Burning Garbage Separate Those new garbage trucks will start operating in the residential section of Ada Thursday morning, according to Mayor Luke B. Dodds. The trucks will continue where the truck quit Wednesday afternoon and any garbage that has been picked up at a certain location on Thursday and Friday will be gathered about the same time this week. ...... ♦ Mayor Dodds said that the new trucks would try to follow a Lundgaard to Head Annual Drive For Boy Seoul Funds County's Share, of Council Budget to Be Asked Last Week of This Month Harry Lundgaard, manager of the Ada Milling company, has been selected to be general chairman for the annual Boy Scout financial drive for the Pontotoc District, Arbuckle Council. The drive will be held during the last week of this month. Scott Baublits, manager of J. C. Penney store, will head up the general solicitation group. He will select a number of captains who in turn will recruit a corp of works to make a general canvass of the town. Pontotoc District is one of ten districts in the Arbuckle Area Council which will help raise a budget of $25270 to carry on Scouting for another year. This budget was approved at the annual council meeting held at Sulphur January 19. ‘‘Scouting has made such unusual progress in recent months,” Lundgaard said, “that we anticipate a generous response from the public.” -It- Senate Committee For Year Extension Votes to Extend Price Control Low 12 Months WASHINGTON, May 15.—OP) —The senate banking committee voted today to extend the life of the price control law a full year beyond the June 30 expiration date. The house previously had voted only a nine months extension and had hedged its approval with numerous restrictions. Senator Barkley (D-Ky) said the vote for the year’s extension was “about ll to five.” Earlier, the committee had rejected, IO to seven a motion by Senator Butler (R-Nebr) for a nine months’ extension. Barkley said there was discussion of various plans for removing controls as the supply of commodities comes into line with demand but no action was taken.  *- NEWSPRINT PRODUCTION IN N. AMERICA SHOWS GAIN NEW YORK, May 15. <.**>— production of newsprint in North America in April totaled 434,421 tons, the highest April output in history, the news print service bureau reported today. Shipments in April totaled 446,927 tons. Total North American production in April, 1945, was 332,925 tons and shipments totaled 340,- 188. Stocks of newsprint paper at the end of April in all the North American producing areas totaled 196,270 tons, against 208,776 at the end of March and 161,727 at the end of April, 1945. schedule followed by the old garbage collection plan until all of the excessive garbage is collected. Two rn Week Later The mayor said that the loads at first would be too heavy for the trucks to try to complete two round trips each week. After all the problems have been worked out, the schedule will call for two garbage collections each week. As soon as plans are made for the new schedule, they will be announced. Separate Garbage It is particularly urged that garbage that can be burned be separated from those items that will not bum. During the past several days, the collectors of garbage have found some 50 calibre machine gun shells and some hand grenades in the trash. The mayor says that it would be better for such items to be disposed of some other way than putting them in the trash. If the grenades had not been found, they might have partially demolished the garbage disposal plant. -H- (onvaleuenf War Val (amp Smiled Stale Considers Setting One On Lake Murray Shore OKLAHOMA CITY, May 15, (‘T>—The state planning and resources board is studying a proposal by the state postwar planning commission for the establishment of a cabin camp for convalescent war veterans on the shores of Lake Murray, Don McBride, chairman said today. Under the proposal, submitted by Lloyd Judd, vice-chairman of the commission, 50 cabins would be built in the Tucker tower area at the south end of the lake. McBride said his Board adopted the resolution and is making a study of the proposal. McBride said the move is contingent upon getting the veterans administration to establish a convalescent hospital there; second, on securing an appropriation from the governor’s contingency fund and third, securing land now under lease to the University of Oklahoma, it was pointed out. OH In Ethiopia Likely—Sinclair NEW YORK, May 15, CP)— Harry F. Sinclair, president of Sinclair Oil Corp., told stockholders at the annual meeting today there was “a very good chance” the company would find oil in Ethiopia. The company, he said, has conducted preliminary exploratory work but thus far no oil has been found. Sinclair disclosed the company has a capital expenditure program involving $90,000,000 to $100,000,000 for expansion and additional facilities which will be spent over the next year or two. He gave a tentative figure of $500,000 for first quarter earnings. As a guess, he said, “we’ll make more money this year than last.” Industry Is Reviving As Miners Return Men Being Called Back To Work or Shutdown Plans Boing Revoked Now By The Associated Press Prospects brightened today for a speedier industrial revival from the coal shortage as 30,000 more bituminous miners returned to work under their strike truce. Over the nation 98,000 out of 400.000 still were idle. Pennsylvania’s idle coal diggers dropped from 75,000 to about 43.000 after the state ruled they were eligible for unemployment compensation payments without any more waiting period, should the strike continue after expiration of the United Mine Workers’ 12-day truce. The miners on Monday completed the required five - week penalty period, plus the regular one-week wait. William Hynes, president of UMW district 4 where only a handful of the miners returned, predicted the keystone state ruling would “help a lot” in getting all of the Pennsylvania’s 100,000 soft coal diggers back by tomorrow. Industry Perks Up Production in West Virginia— the largest coal producing state— was almost normal with 101,000 of the total 104,000 miners working. All but 7,000 of Alabama’s 23.000 miners were on the job, while in Kentucky 30,000 out of 55.000 were back in the pits. Industry, which only last week was gloomily reporting layoffs and shutdowns, gave a more optimistic picture today. Dupont’s cellophane plant at Buffalo, N. Y., which had planned to shut down Friday, told its 2,-700 workers raw materials were again available and hoped “to keep going without any shutdown at all.” Similarly, the Dupont cellophane plant at Nashville, Tenn., announced it will not lay off its 4.000 employes, although production continues at 75 percent of normal. Chevrolet Changes Plans The American locomotive plant at Schenectady, N. Y., called back 50 emplqyes. Plans to lay off 10,-000 Chervolet Motor Co. employes in in Buffalo and Lockport, N. Y. were dropped. The Pittsburgh Steamshop Co. said it would halt deccftnmissioning of its 63-ship ore fleet and return to service those craft already withdrawn. Steel, first to feel effects of the strikes, was also among the first to recover. The Carnegie-Illinois Steel Corp. said its hot mill at Vandergrift, Pa., would operate this week. The Ellwood City, Pa.. works of the National Tube Co., another U. S. Steel Corp., subsid-ary, recalled 3,000 workers. Illinois reported the number of workers idle or in a shortened week has fallen to 25,000 compared with the 70,000 figure of last week. ffibbons and (ash To Winners In Dally Show Here Grand champions in each of the breed divisions at the Fifth Annual Central Dairy show were awarded ribbons and cash prizes Tuesday by officials of the show.

HAAKINSON WASHINGTON, May 15.—(ZP) —Childless men 26 through 29 years old came back into the draft picture today as President Truman’s choice of “the lesser of two evils” kept selective service legally alive but croppled. For the moment, however, only men 20-25 will be inducted. Mr. Truman chose last night to sign a 45-day stop-gap extension of the draft law—but with an HEADS OFF CALL HERE Today — Wednesday—was “call” day for Pontotoc county draft board No. 2, which had a group of 18-year-olds ready to be sent off to the military services. However, the board received instructions from the state board during the morning not to send any 18 or 19-year olds for the time being and asking if the board had any 20-year olds available to meet the call. A re-cheek began through the files, but Mrs. P. L. Gassaway, secretary, said that she did not think the board had any of that age group. (Continued on Page 2 Column 5) outright ban on inductions of either fathers or teen-age youths— rather than let the act expire at midnight. The chief executive affixed his signature just four hours before the deadline. Less than two hours earlier the senate rammed through the extender after Senator Langer (R-ND) abandoned his threat to talk selective service to death. Must Be Changed—Army Draft Director Lewis B. Hershey immediately wired local boards to confine inductions to men in the under-26 group Mr. Truman designated when Japan fell last August, but army officials in a position to know said this will have to be changed. Noting that the law specifically permits men 20 through 29 to be drafted, one official said, “of course, that’s what we’ll have to do.” He asked not to be identified by name. At draft headquarters, spokesmen took the position that it is up to the army to take any steps to raise the top limit set by the president. Pool Of Eligibles Small These spokesmen said that under the new setup selective service has a pool of only about 59,- 000 eligibles 20 through 25 from which to meet monthly calls. They estimated that of these perhaps 50 percent may be physically unfit. Raising of the limit to include men 26. 27, 28 and 29 would provide only an additional 13.000 registrants for possible induction, they added. Mr. Truman left no doubt that he was displeased with the way the draft extension was brought about. His press secretary, Charles G. Ross, used the “lesser of two evils” description in telling reporters the president regarded the stop-gap measure as a “bad bill.” Ross added; ‘‘The president doesn’t like it at all, but feels, as some of his officials do, that it will be better to sign it than have confusion that will result from failure to continue a legislative support for armed force inductions.” Another Battle Ahead While Langer still held the senate floor, Mr. Truman signed an executive order that would have preserved selective service machinery but permitted no actual inductions. Final enactment of the bill, however, made this action unnecessary. Langer and a number of other senators promised that another word battle faces administration attempts to extend selective service beyond July I. ‘Til fight that too as well as 1 know how,” Langer said. Birt Secretary of War Patterson issued a statement last night in which he noted that the senate had passed the stop-gap bill “as modified by the house” and added: “I hope that before July I an extension of selective service for one year will be adopted by the congress in such form as to permit the war department to carry out the tasks expected of it by the nation.” While the new law exempts 18 and 19 year old from the draft, selective service said youths turning 18 still will be required to register. * - O.

FIRM GETS JOB OF PRINTING STATE BALLOTS OKLAHOMA C I T.Y, May 15 UP).—The state election board has let a contract for th eprinting of more than 4.000,000 primary and runoff ballots to the Harlow Publishing company of Oklahoma City on a bid of $30,801. The contract was let after the board called for a second submission of bids. AU bids received on a first call were rejected because they were too high. Secretary J. William Cordell said Harlow’s bid, which includes supplies for the elections, was about $10,000 less than the lowest bid received previously.
