Remember me when the peace bells toll For I won t be there when they call the roll I fell in the desert and there I lay A tribute to peace and a better day hen you are drinking from a cool spring Remember me, I once drank from a spring How I dreamed of its life giving flow As I laid in the desert watching dust clouds blow.
Remember me when the peace bel Is toll
P or I won t be there when they call the roll
I fell in Italy on a mountain high
VV ell I knew that this could be my time to die
Rut I thought perhaps I might be spared
To live again with mom and dad who really cared
So remember me when you go whistling down the street
In the shade of the village elms rn their rows so neat.
Remember me when the peace bells toll
For I won’t be there when they call the roll
I fell on the white sand of a Pacific beach
Amid the shambles left by the mortar shells’ screech
And as life's picture ebbed out with the tide
I thought of home and family by the fireside
So remember me when you are in the quiet of the park
I used to enjoy sitting there in the dark
Watching the stars leap frog the clouds
- was not the type that enjoyed the crowds.
Remember me when the peace bells toll
For I won’t be there when they call the roll
I fell in Normandy in the muck and snow
As we battled for the hedges row after row
The thing that kept me going was the thought
That o er and beyond those hedges was the peade we sought
So remember me when you’re fishing on a shady stream
Letting the hours glide leisurely by as in a dream
He w I enjoyed lying on the bank gazing into the sky
Not knowing my fate was to fight, bleed and die
Or. some distant battle-field so far away
i o purchase peace, liberty, honor and a better day.
Remember me when the peace bells toll For i won t be there when they call the roll I fell from the skies in the roar of smoke and flame A sacrifice given by one who was not to blame For all the misery and woe that had befallen men Destroying their homes and cities by bombs’ flash and din So remember me when you stroll across the campus lawn it seems only yesterday that I arose there with the dawn To begin my studies for an earthly career That ended so abruptly with the goal so near.
Remember me when the peace bells toll
For I won t be there when they call the roll
I went down fighting the battle of the seas
And as the enemy knocked us to our knees
We fought back until we cornered him in his lair
And shipped him of his power to spoil and snare
So remember me when you’re home enjoying the folks
It s not long since I was at the Corner Drug drinking cokes
And visiting my old cronies and friends
But now that s all over and my story ends.
Remember me when the peace bells toll
For I won I be there when they call the roll I was a chaplain who went down with the Dorchester Giving out life belts to others as a parting gesture f la* tiling the law of love as God would have it be In spite of self, torpedoes, storm and sea So remember me and my God some Sunday morn
When the sun rays shine through the Church windows to
The truth that greater love hath no man
Than this—that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Area Gels First Killing Frost Of This Fall Season
Ice and a killing frost made Sunday night distinctive for this fall, for it was the first such frost this area has recorded since last winter.
The temperature got down to 30 degrees and Monday morning ice was found as thick as a quarter of an inch on exposed water. Frost was in evidence on house tops and across lawns and fields.
The night was clear and with little wind and the temperature drop from a Sunday high of 67

Mr. Truman said in a statement read to his news conference that tile democratic defeat in last Tuesday’s elections “does not alter our domestic or foreign interests or problems.” He reminded that “in foreign affairs we have a well-charted course to follow.” The president declared he knew of no resignations planned by members of his cabinet and said that Charles G. Ross will contfhue as his press secretary.
The text of Mr. Truman’s statement:
“The people have elected a republican majority to the senate and to the house of representatives. Under our constitution the congress is the lawmaking body The people have chosen to entrust the controlling voice in this branch of our government to the republican party. I accept their verdict in the spirit in which all good citizens accept the result of any fair election.
At the same time and under the same constitution, the duties and responsibilities of the chief executive and of the executive branch of the government are entrusted to me and my associates.
Difficulties Threaten Our government is founded upon the constitutional principle that the three branches of the government are independent of each other. Under this principle our country has prospered and grown sreat. I should be less than candid, however, if I omitted to state that the present situation threat s difficulties.

Chinese (ommunisl Tempers Flare Over New Charges
Claim Government Troops Violate Cease-Fire Order Near Tenon
By HAROLD K. MILKS
NANKING, Nov. ll, <.1*)—Opening of the national assembly, called by Chiang Kai-Shek for tomorrow to establish an all-party government for China, has been postponed “two or three days,” minister of information Peng Hsueh-Pei told newsmen today.
This was announced as communist tempers flared anew over allegations that government troops in violation of the new cease-fire order were menacing the Red capital of Yenan, and as third-party representatives urged postponement of the session until the end of the month in the hope of reaching an agreement with the communists beforehand.
Earlier responsible government officials had predicted the assembly would convene in an informal preparatory session tomorrow was scheduled.

Official Vole Hay No! Be Known Now
OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. ll, <A*»—The state election board’s canvass of votes cast in last Tuesday’s general election was nearing completion today and J. William Cordell, secretary, said he hoped to have the final tally in all races by nightfall.
Complete, official returns have been received from 75 of 77 counties, leaving only Adair and Cimarron counties to be heard from. The Cimarron county election board certified votes cast in state office races but failed to report the congressional vote and those cast upon the four initiated school measures.
“We are expecting complete returns from Adair and Cimarron counties today and we are hoping to complete the canvass without further delay,” Cordell said.
With all office races apparently settled by official tabulations, principal interest today continued to center on the better school amendments, Their adoption or defeat cannot be determined until the state election board county is completed.
The state .school leaders, however, claimed victory for the four Oklahoma education association-sponsored measures, and the prediction may prove a safe one if the total vote does not exceed 510.000.
Forman Phillips, OEA manager, reported that a county-by-county survey made by the organization showed a total vote of 408,290. On that basis, all four measures carried with safe majorities.

Begin Era Of Free Economy
Labor and Management Now Held Key to U. S.
Economic Future As Controls Go
By MARVIN L. ARROWSMITH
WASHINGTON, Nov. 11-(>P)
Labor and management - free of government curbs after five years — held the key to America’s economic future today as President Truman heaped the junk pile with wage and price controls.
Only ceilings on rents, sugar and rice survived the chief executive’s sweeping decontrol action.
And federal officials termed rent increases “inevitable."
In killing off all other controls in a week-end order, Mr. Truman said:
“I am convinced that their fur-th r continuance would do the nation’s economy more harm than good.”
At the same time the chief executive placed “squarely upon management and labor” the "responsibility’’ for ec inomic stability.
His decontrol edict brought immediate promises from industry and business leaders that prices will be held at reasonable levels after a period of adjustment.
But some of these leaders tcm-p red their pledges vdth a big "if"

At nearby Arlington cemetery, Mr. Truman led the nation's Armistice Day observance by placing a wreath of chrysanthemum on the tomb of the unknown soldier as notables of th is and Allied nations looked on Then, in the adjoining amphitheater, he told a gathering: “What we are trying to do now is to create a peace which will prevent the necessity of our grandchildren fighting a third world war for the same principles for which we stand now," and have always stood.”
The president said the United States had nothing to gam bv the recent war except peace and nothing to gain from its international negotiations except peace.

DENVER, Nov. 11—(>P)_A cold wave following a two-day snow storm which cost 13 lives sent temperatures generally throughout Colorado into the twenties last night and caused additional concern among stockmen who reported approximately 35,000 snow bound cattle on the ranges.
Unless an extreme cold snap is experienced, however, it was felt generally animals would survive although shrinkage probably would be substantial.
As the state dug itself out of the snow storm travel still was precarious on Colorado’s highways and in the Walsenburg coal mining area army trucks were bucking drifts this morning to bring an expectant mother medical aid.
The coldest spot late last night in the state was at Leadville, high in the rockies, where a one-degree below zero reading was recorded.
A Lowry field air rescue plane completed a mercy mission yesterday. dropping food and fuel oil to eight persons marooned by snow drifts at an Elbert county farm house. The group had been cut off by snow drifts for a week.

WASHINGTON, Nov. ll- (ZF)— President Truman said today he plans no changes in his cabinet at this time.
He made that statement to his news conference in response to a question. The last cabinet shift came in September w'hen Henry A. Wallace was removed as secretary of commerce and replaced by W. Averell Harriman.
Mr. Truman said also that he does not believe there is a bit of foundation to reports that Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower is about to resign as army chief of staff.
A reported told the president there are reports Eisenhower plans to quit because he has been unable to obtain clear information on how much money the war department will be able to spend:
The president also was asked W'hether Leslie Biffle, secretary of the senate, will be made a presidential administrative assistant.
Mr. Truman replied that the reported would have to talk to Biffle about that.
To a question as to whether Chester Bowles, former stabiliza-
fith called for a strong national defense program, and asserted that “spiritual strength and fighting strength” is the formula for “insuring American peace ani security.”
Terming spiritual strength the “first requisite of national defense.’’ he declared “that is why the alien 'isms’ that are sweeping our land have as their first objective our spiritual disarmament by seeking to make disbelievers in America.”
Griffith said the Legion will propose a “comprehensive” national defense and preparedness program to the new congress, with universal military training as the plan s “backbone.”
