So they set about locating a man with both of these in his background. They started learning fast about the city manager field — that it is a very narrow and highly sk.lied one and that few men ate qualified to handle. They had already found out by careful examination of the city’s needs that a man was required w : t h engineering background. and ’Aith experience as a city manager. Many technical problems arise constantly rn the maintenance in and operation of tin* water ays-ten . the disposal plant and other t tv properties and Ada does not have a City engineer.

Oct. 5. HW—St. Louis’ own Cardinals, who survived a rough trio to the finals, and the highly favored Boston Red Sox held their last skull sessions and workouts at Sportsman’s park preparatory to hook mg up at 1:30 (CST) Sunday afternoon in the opening game of the 1940 World Series. A sell out crowd of about 34,-000 was assured for both of the games which will he played here before the two clubs move up to Boston to continue the struggle. Texan vs. Texan? Prospects were that a couple of Texas residents, left handed Bowie Toilet of Houston and “Tex’ Hughson, a long righthander from Kyle, would be nominated as the starting pitchers in the opener. Pullet, who turned in 21 victories for the Cards during the season, including a vital 4-2 triumph over the Dodgers in the first play-off game, was certain to go for Freshman Manager Eddie Dyer if the strained shoulder muscle which has hampered him recently is not too painful when he warms up tomorrow. The slim portsider took heat treatments today and indicated he would be ready. Although Manager Joe Cronin of the Sox had not stated a definite choice among his “big-three”—Hughson. Dave “Boo” Ferris and Mickey Harris—the C ards felt it w*as a foregone conclusion they wmuld have to look at Hughson. The big fast-baller won 20 this year, ripping off eight of his last nine starts. Brecheen Second Should Choice Pollet decline the assignment, Dyer said his second choice would be    another lefty, Harry Brecheen.    Then, if Brecheen also feels    he could use more rest after his furious nin-th-inmng relief    stint against Brooklyn two days ago, Dyer’s reluctant third choice would be George Munger, a right-hander who only recently got out of the service. No matter what Redbird fling cr finally gets the call, the Sox will remain firm favorites to capture the aeries. The fence-blisters who carried them to a runaway victory in the American league are figured to generate too much power for the Cards, w ho wound up the season with only two .300 hitters. Red Sox Calmly Confident The Boston strong boys bore a confident air W’hen they arrived on their special train late yesterday. One after another they said calmly: “Sure, we expect to w in. ’ The Cards were somew’hat more voluble about it. “Sure. they’re the sort of team taal might beat you on any pitch of a game,” assented Manager Dyer while discussing his chances “But, just the same, w’e can give them a hell of a rassle if we’re ‘right’, the way we were in that second play off game.” Another Week For Blue (rest Signers Community Group Signing Needs 75 More To Make Individual Cases Effective Navy Band Here Today Famed Musical Organise* lion's Concert Sponsored By East Central The United States Navy Band that plays in concert here this afternoon has more than a century of history and tradition back of it. This will be its first time in Ada and the occasion promises to be a notable one in East Central and Ada musical history. Early ticket purchases have been encouraging and if the weather is favorable this afternoon many more will be coming into Ada from neighboring cities for the concert, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at Norris Stadium.

However, college authorities have erected a stand on Norris playing field and will set up a loudspeaker system to be used if needed. Tickets will be on sale up to the time of the concert and will be available on both the west and east sides of the stadium. The first link with recorded history of music in the U. S. navy was when James F. Draper’s name appeared in 1825 on the payroll of the American frigate “Brandywine” as a musician. By 1838 there was a navy band of six persons officially listed and thereafter development w-as rapid. World War I gave military music a great boost. By 1923 the Navy Band had utstanding musicians and in 1925 Pres. Coolidge signed a special act recognizing it as the permanent representative band of the U. S. Navy. Its first annual tour came that fall.

Oct. 5 f/P) - Arabs and British officials openly nursed their anger at President Truman today, but dissent within Britain over the government’s I .destine policy entered the picture. The foreign office, confirming previous reports, said Prime Minister Attlee had sent a personal note to President Truman and went even farther than yesterday in expressing resentment over the president’s refusal to delay publication of his statement advocating the immediate admission of a substantial number of Jewish immigrants into the Holy Land. Churchill Critical Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister, openly criticised the government’s Palestine policy in a speech to a conservative party convention at Blackpool, declaring it was “vacillating” and an abandonment of “lavish pro-mist's made to the Jews by the labor party before it took office. He added that the government was hanging on to a mandate “in which they have no vital interest. Foreign office officials have said emphatically that Britain has no intention of giving up her mandate and may ask the United Nations to confirm it. A source close to Attlee said dissent ion over Palestine also was one of several matters on which former Minister of State Philip Noel-Baker had disagreed with the government. Noel-Baker was shifted to air secretary in a series of cabinet and ministerial changes announced last night. Arab Criticizes Truman i *ore*£n office spokesman left the impression that the Attice note to President Truman was couched in strong language. Arab spokesman accused the president of playing politics. Dr. M. radhel Jamali, Iraq foreign minister and leader of the Iran delegation to the London conference on Palestine, in a formal statement declared that “we I egret that the president’s connection with Zionist sources in America is never counterbalanced by any standing connections w ith or study of, the Arab point of view-. We also know, to our regret, that elections in America, which should he purely internal matters, do take on a bargaining nature for Zionist votes and Zionist influence in the U.

Four Main Fire Hazards—Haler Fire Chief Ed Haley Saturday said that four main structural fire hazards exist in many homes in Ada. His statement was made in connection with Fire Prevention Week, October 0-12, sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association. “Take, for example, the matter of worn. inflammable wood roofs responsible for fires every day in the United States, according to the NFP A. Such roofs are tinder for windblown sparks and should he replaced with fire resistant roofing materials, such as asphalt .shingles,” Chief Haley said. Other common structural defects responsible for home fires, the chief stated, are defective heating plants, faulty chimneys or flues and improper electrical systems. Ile urged all citizens to use Fue Prevention Week as an opportunity to “put their own house in order, ’ and pledged cooperation of his department in making the homes in Ada much safer from fire. PITTSBUFiGH, Oct. 5 (A*) — Downtown department stores today planned to resume normal operations despite the crippling 12-day power strike. The retail merchants association said the stores are installing emergency generators to permit them to operate and end the strike-made layoffs of more than 10,000 employes. As the stores made plans to counteract effects of the power walkout, a public rally was scheduled for tomorrow to protest the strike of 3.500 members of the Duquesne Light Co. Independent union. Federal conciliation efforts still failed today to bring the union and the company together The company has insisted on arbitration to settle the wage dispute. This, tim* union flatly refuses. Meanwhile, the strike dragged on in tin* 817 square mile area served by Duquesne Light. In some sections, residents had electricity in their homes, but streets were pitch black and nocturnal travelers did well to carry flash lights. Streetcars and busses — principal means of transportation for some 1,000,000 riders—were still tied up by refusal of motormen and drivers to cross picket lines set up by the power strikers. The striking Duquesne Light employees seek a 20 per cent wage increase, raising base pay levels from $1.18 to $1.41 an hour. The company has offered five per cent.
