Ada Evening News (Newspaper) - November 19, 1946, Ada, Oklahoma it s been said that actions speak louder than words; there are also times when silence speaks louder than actions, as witness the ominous silence of John L. Lewis in today's coal crisis Aver*** Net October P»ld Circulation 8601 Member: Audit Bureau of CirculationTHE ADA EVENING NEWS 43rd Year—No. 184 ADA, OKLAHOMA. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1946 Prices Paid For Livestock Holding High After Several Control-less Weeks, Meat Supply Up, Slaughter Gaining By WILLIAM FERRIS CHICAGO, Nov. 19. CP)— Prices which farmers received for livestock today, at the start of the sixth week of decontrolled markets, were only slightly under peaks established immediately after ceilings were removed. Other results of free trading include more meat, corn-hog price relationship favorable for expanding the hog population, record numbers of cattle moving into mid-western feed lots and increased cold storage meat holdings. Five weeks ago today maximums went off livestock and meat, and excluding Sundays, the nation has had 30 days of free trading with these results: 1. A high of $37.00 paid for live cattle yesterday at Chicago equaled the best price on record for steers, top on live Hogs was $24 75 against a peak of $27.50 shortly after decontrol. Tnese prices were well above former OPA c**ilings of $20.25 on cattle and $16.25 on hogs. In addition there was a subsidy of 50 cents to $2.40 on cattle and $1.75 on hogs. Receipts Much Larger 2. Livestock receipts and meat supplies are much larger than in toe period before decontrol. Cattle slaughter under federal inspection in October was up 207 per cent over September and hog slaughter 611 per cent. November receipts also are higher than in the control period, although arrivals of cattie are smaller tnan a year ago. Hog arrivals are above a year ago. 3. Record numbers of stocker and feeder cattle have moved into mid-western feed lots, where they are being fed for later marketing as choice beef. The agriculture department said shipments of such cattle into the corn belt in October exceeded any month on record. Slaughter of choice cattle “will continue small for the balance of this year,” the department raid, but added, “an increasing volume of such cattle may be forthcoming after the first of next year, with large supplies probable in the late spring and summer.” Meat Prices Down Some 4. Meat prices are lower than immediately after decontrol, but far above former ceilings. Choice dressed beef carcass weighing 500 to 600 pounds at New York yesterday brought $45.00 to $48-00. Immediately after decontrol the price was $59.67. Ceilings was $26.18. Choice pork loins weighing 8 to IO pounds yesterday sold for $52 OO to $55.00 a hundredweight compared with $56.58 after decontrol and a ceiling of $31.88. With both beef and pork. the meat industry' contended substantial quantities formerly sold above ceiling prices in the black market. Record Corn Crop 5. A record-breaking corn crop, forcing prices louder, has produced a corn-hog ratio at Chicago of 15.8 to I, meaning that the price of IOO pounds of live hog is equal to the price of 15.8 bushels of corn. Last year at this time the hog price equalled only 12 9 bushels of corn. H. A. Whiteside, who calculates the corn-hog ratio, said that it was more favorable for feeding corn to hogs now' than at any time in “at least the past several years.” 6. Holdings of meat in cold storage have increased, “though normal movement for meat (in Otcober') is out-of-storage,” the agriculture department said. ‘ stocks of stored meat increased during October by 24,000.000 pounds.” This still left stocks around half of normal for Nov.

Lads, Fathers Guests Of Club; Corn That Won At State Fair Wins Again Max Griffith, 12 year old seventh grader of Hart school has exhibited his Reed’s Ycllow*dent corn in four shows this year and is undefeated. His corn was the grand champion exhibit at the Kiwanis club sponsored corn show at the Aldridge hotel Monday. Son of Mr. and Mrs. Amo Griffith, Max has one of the outstanding corn production records in Pontotoc county. He reported a yield of 60 bushels per acre from the crop that he planted and tended. At a banquet prepared by Kiwanis club members for boys participating in the club’s corn program and the boy’s fathers, the large dining hall was almost completely filled. Best In Several Years Glenn Boley, chairman of the club corn program, was in charge of the program Monday night. He said that the corn show here this year was the best in several years. The program chairman welcomed the boys and their fathers to the meeting and praised the wor k done by the boys this year. The Kiwanis club has an extensive eight point farm program that has been most successful this year. Lovelace Recognition Spreads /•When County Agent C. H. Hailey took the floor, he commended the club for its farm program and introduced a 4-H club boy who has won state and national recognition partly because of a farm project sponsored by the Kiwanis club. J. G. Lovelace, Jr., of the Latta community made a short talk I to the group. “We 4-H club members of Pontotoc county appreciate the things that the business men and women in Ada have done for us,” he said. It was after receiving a Holstein heifer calf through the Kiwanis club sponsored dairy program that Lovelace started his climb upward. He was one of the first 4-H club boys to take part in the program. Cash Awards to Winners Lester Smith, assistant county agent, presented winners who were present with cash awards ranging from $5 for first place to $1 for the last six places in each of two divisions of the corn show.

Cullen Buck of Francis and Donald Miller of Byng. Best Judge Has Seen Wesley Craffin, extension cn-tomogolist and judge of the corn show, said, “This is the best county corn show that I have ever seen.” He told the group that he judges several shows each year in all sections of the state and the show here ranked higher than any other show. He pointed out that the Ada Kiwanis club farm program is receiving statewide recognition. Chaffin made a short talk using picture slides to illustrate his talk. One of the slides was of the prize winning corn exhibit at Oklahoma City fair and that Russia Agrees On Trieste That Deadlock Broken, But Russia Opposes Any Change In Veto System By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER NEW YORK, Nov. 19—(/P)— Spurred by Russian concessions, the great power foreign ministers scored major progress today in breaking their long peace-treaty deadlock on control of Trieste. But they evidently were headed for trouble over proposals to restrict voluntarily the use of the veto in the United Nations security council. A series of swift moving developments yesterday and last night brought the brightest prospects yet for early and final agreement on the Italian and other former German satelite peace treaties, but simultaneously dimmed the outlook for any substantial agreements by Russia on the veto issue. U. N. Governor for Trieste The main developments were these: 1. In a Big Four meeting last night (America, Britain, Russia and France) Soviet foreign minister Molotov finally yielded to American-British insistence that the proposed free territory of Trieste should be under a United Nations governor armed with strong powers to protect its independence. 2. In an earlier Big Five meeting (the Big Four plus China) Molotov, after some objection, agreed to consider proposals for voluntarily restricting use of the veto and to discuss them in future Big-Five meetings. Russia Clings to Veto Power 3. At Lake Success, L. I., a committee of the U. N. assembly indirectly approved this procedure by voting 38 to 6 to sidetrack its own veto debate until the foreign ministers had time to act. However, a Soviet spokesman told the committee his government was flatly opposed to any changes in the veto system and objected to all assembly proposals aimed at modifying it. 4. Diplomatic authorities interpreted this as meaning that Molotov probably would reject all Big Five suggestions for voluntarily restricting use of the veto, although he might go along with some British, American and Chinese recommendations aimed not so much at the veto as at speeding up the work of the security council. The next meeting of the Big Four on the Italian peace treaty and Trieste is scheduled for tomorrow. At that time they may also take up, at least briefly, the question of Germany, since they have an agreement to begin talks on Germany about Nov. 20. Public Invifed To (osl Discussions Expenditures Council Meeting To Tolk Over Mounting Governmental Spending A meeting of the Oklahoma Public Expenditures council has been called by W. A. (Gus) Delaney, member of the board of trustees, for tonight (Tuesday) at 7:30 o’clock in the large dining room of the Aldridge hotel. The public has been invited to attend this meeting and take part in the discussions that will be held. Mr. Delaney says that the meeting is an effort to help familiarize the public with the expenditure of government locally, state and nationally. The Oklahoma Public Expenditures council, concerned over the huge federal debt and mounting federal expenditures, has pledged itself to cooperate with 35 other similar state organizations in an al-out campaign for a balanced federal budget. -H-- Driver Charged In Traffic Violation Arthur Cook Ward of Tishomingo was arrested and charged with violation of the rules of the road.

Miners Talk Of 'No Contract' % Points To Complete Shutdown By ELAINE KAHN PITTSBURGH, Nov. 19, UP)— Sporadic work stoppages in the soft coal fields spread today to a few more mines in the two biggest producing states, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The number of idle in the industry resulting from walkouts yesterday and today was estimated at 41,000 out of the nation’s 400,000 soft coal miners. This represented an increase of about 3,000 from yesterday among the idle diggers who walked out in advance of the contract-expiration deadline of Wednesday midnight, set by John L. Lewis, president of the AFL-United Mine Workers. Two Captive Pits Closed Among the mines closed today were two Captive pits of the U. S. Steel Corporation. A company spokesman reported these were the Bridgeport, Mine, near Brownsville, Pa., with more than 800 workers, and the Hazel mine at Canonsburg, Pa., with 111 workers. Some unionists predicted a complete shutdown would occur Ada And County Center Of Popular Broadcast Tonight All necessary arrangements have been completed for a radio program designed to focus considerable statewide attention on Ada and Pontotoc county, when Bruce Palmer, WRY News Bureau Chief, presents his popular 15-minute news program, “Oklahoma’s Front Page,” from the newsroom of the Ada Evening News, Tuesday, November 19, at 6:45 p. rn.

Operation BALTIMORE,. Nov. 19—(ZP)— Young Lawrence Minossi was in Johns Hopkins hospital today— but he didn’t like the idea of having his tonsils and adenoids removed. The 10-year-old boy, clad only in pajamas and slippers, walked out of the hospital last night, and became the object of a city-wide police search. Found early today by two youths several blocks from the hospital, the boy was promptly hustled back to the hospital by his mother. That was the third time he had been taken to Hopkins for the operation. After first being taken to the hospital yesterday morning, the boy left immediately after his mother and followed her home. But back he went, and his mother stayed with him until 8:30 p. rn.

Thursday if the miners follow their traditional “no contract no work” contention. Even as the shaggy mine chieftain faced a possible jail sentence if he disobeys a court designed to prevent a walkout, it appeared the miners would follow their time-honored maxim, “no contract—no work.” Illinois Hardest Hit Illinois was hardest hit by the unscheduled walkouts with 15,-000 miners idle; Pennsylvania, the No. 2 coal producing state had 10,000 men out, Alabama 3,-000; Indiana 650, and West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia, 12.200. “We’ll see you in five weeks,” was the ominous word of miners at the Montour IO at Library, Pa., as they filed out of an afternoon shift yesterday. James Caspar, a track layer, at the Westland, Pa., mine, summed up the miners’ reaction to the strike injunction with: “They can’t do anything to a man for not coming to work when he doesn’t want to. Not in this country, they can’t.’* A spokesman for the big 1.300-member Robena mine local in Greene county, Pa., declared: “We are coming out at midnight Wednesday, strike or no strike, unless a contract is signed before then.” He added darkly, “and we don’t expect a contract to be signed before then.” A West Virginia UMW official rn the Williamson field, where miners walked out when the gov-ernment-UMW talks started Nov. I hut later returned, said: “The men are in a disturbed frame of mind.” Lew’is’ grip on the coal diggers was illustrated at the Westland mine Monday when 600 miners reported as usual. But as the mon drew their lamps, the query rippled through the crowd: “Are you or aren't you for Lewis?” The men turned in their lamps poured the water from their pails and went home. “We’re IOO per cent for Lewis' because W'o know h«*‘s doing right.” declared veteran Miner Otis Wright. Report Crow Roosts Now Stole Deportment Will Help Destroy Expensive Rests lf Told Where They Gather Warden Jeff F. Kendall of the state Game and Fish department assures The News that his department w'ill help destroy the crows in this section. Cy Hailey, county agent, says one roosting place has already been reported near Galey school. But there are many other places in the county that ought to be attended to, Mr. Hailey believes. The southern end of the county has been reporting “millions” of crows in the pecan trees, in the peanut fields, and wherever else they are not wanted. At night they gather in groups. When the roosting places are found, the game rangers go in, siring dynamite in the trees and wait until the pests have come in. Then the dynamite is exploded and the crow tribe is reduced. Mr. Hailey hopes that by cleaning out the roosting places this fall, the damage next year will not be so great as it was this year. Please do not delay. If you know where the crows roost, notify The Ada News or Mr. Hailey: And please do not wait for somebody else to do it, for that way it might not get done.

Nov. 19.—(ZP)— In balloting which both Britain and the United States criticized in advance as neither free nor unfettered, nearly 8,000,000 Romanians chose a new parliament today, giving the communist-dominated government of Premier Petru Groza its first popular test. While Groza’s six-party government bloc, in power since March 6, 1945. and the opposition parties differ sharply on their attitude toward neighboring Russia, the government pinned its hopes of victory on the historical fact that no Romanian government ever lost an election. Internal issues dominated months of campaigning, with the opposition groups concentrating on the struggle to establish a middle class capitalistic regime and the government plumping for more cordial relations with Russia. and thus for a communist society. British and American charges that supporters of fie present regime were responsible for breaking up opposition meetings and hindering the major opposition parties* campaigns drew government retorts questioning the right of the western powers to tell Romania how to run her elections. Troops and police were on the alert to prevent violence which marred the campaign. The polls opened at 8 a.m. and were to remain open until 8 p.m., but the electoral law" provides that wherever voting cannot be carried out completely in that 12-hour period, the voting hours may be extended for 12 additional hours. First results were not expected to be available before noon tomorrow, with final results to bo announced by the central electoral commission Friday. The final stages of the campaign were quiet in Bucharest and reports of arrests of opposition party members all appeared to be at least IO days old. The national peasant party newspaper Dreptatea appeared several hours late last night after receiving last-minute permission to publish the uncensored texts of the U. S. and British notes of Saturday. Approximately 48 foreign correspondents were on hand to watch and report on the elections. Teacher Retirement In Effect In 1947 OKLAHOMA CITY.

Presidential Secretary Charles G. Ross replied: * I don’t know.” Truman Directing Moves Ross said, however, that “the president is aware of everything that is being done, and everything that is being done is in accordance with his instructions.” Ross disclosed that Mr Truman specifically instructed Secretary of Interior J A. Krug to obtain yesterday’s federal court order restraining Lewis unt.i Nov. 27 from “coercing, instigating, inducing or encouraging" the miners to strike—either directly or indirectly—or otherwise to breach his contract with th*' government.

Attorney General Clark signalled his strategy when applying for the order for Krug. He cited the famous case of Eugene V. Debs, who led the Chicago pullman strike in 1894 and was sent to jail for six months for contempt of court in violating an anti-strike injunction. It is a question, however, whether Lewis could be held in contempt if the miners just quit without any word or counsel from him.
