Many Adans saw the shooting stars Wednesday night and some saw them as fast as 1,000 per hour at the peak of the display. The peak in Ada apparently was between 9:30 and IO p.m., according to folks Who started watching it earlier and stayed later.
It was such a magnificent display of ‘ shooting stars” that most people took more interest in it than they had expected.
Few of those watching the shooting stars knew exactly what was happening, but in every instance they were so awed that they didn’t have time to worry about the cause.
Divided Grid Fans Attention
A negro football game at the Fairgrounds was well attended. but many fans turned star gazers before the contest was completed By standing at the top of the west stands and looking lo the south, west or north the display could be seen probably better than most places in town.
There was plenty out of the ordinary sights to see because those extra ‘tails’ are not the usual thing.
An Associated Press report said that the display was at its best in the mid-western states because

DURANT. Okla., Oct. IO GF) One nurse died of suffocation and two others were injured early today when flames sw'ept the second floor of the Durant hospital nurses home here.
Four other nurses fled to safety.
Mary Ellen Lovell, 19, of Durant, was founded dead of suffocation by rescue workers who groped their way through smoke to the second floor of the home, Dr. A. T. Baker, director of the hospital said.
V em ie Arnold, 19. of Durant, suffered an arm injury when she leaped from the window of her room. Dr. Baker said her injury was not serious.
Mrs. Addah Broadhurst, 52, of Idabel, was overcome by smoke and suffered from shock, the doc-ter said. He added she would recover.
Dr. Baker said the fire apparently started in an unoccupied r.oom and was confined to the second floor of the two-story building.
“We just don’t know what caused the fire.” he added. “The damage to the building was minor. The fire did not spread beyond the second floor.
“The nurses were awakened by smoke, apparently, and ran from the building, with the exception of Miss Arnold, who jumped and Miss Lovell and Mrs. Broadhurst.
“No other persons were injured.
“The fire broke out early this morning.
“The hospital itself never was endangered and there was no excitement among patients, who all were asleep.”Industry Representatives On Stabilisation Board Notify Truman
WASHINGTON. Oct. IO, GP>_
The preferred resignations of the two industry members of the wage stabilization board threw that agency into uncertainty today over its future status.
Chairman W. Willard Wirtz said “we are assuming there will be no meetings” of the regional boards, whose industry representatives are expected to follow the lead of Earl M. Cannon and A. Colman Barrett on the Washington panel.
The resignations of Barrett and Cannon, submitted to President Truman by letter, become effective today if the president accepts them. The departing members proposed scrapping of all wage controls and renewed their stand that the tri-partite form of board set up in wartime is no longer appropriate.
The board, meantime, was in the position of having to wait for President Truman to decide what will become of it and of the administration’s wage control policy. Some business and labor leaders have demanded an immediate end of the wrage-price program.
NEW YORK. Oct. IO ^ -Eugene O'Neill’s return lo theater last mght via his new play. “The Ice Man Cometh.” received uni-versay Kudos this morning from drama critics.
It was the first new play to appear in 12 years from pen of O’Neill, thrice winner of the Pulitzer prize and one-time No-bel prize winner. Though long, a four-hour play with time out for dinner, it already was a Theater Guild production sell out.
Br co ss Atkinson, New York Times critic stated flatly, “Mr. O Neill has written one of his oe«t plays.**
John Cnapman of the Daily News characterized the play as “a magnificent dr ama — magnificent rn plan. ;n size, in scope, in depth He summed up the theme as it is our pipe dreams which make us live. and when the last cream is gone there is nothing nut death ahead—and death is the iceman of the drama.”

SEDALIA. Mo., Oct. IO GF)— This city of 24.000 persons hasn t seen a local movie since last August 17 because the mayor, a self-styled country boy, and his council tire standing pat in a fued with theaters over a 5 per cent municipal tax.
The city council passed the 5 per cent assessment on gross receipts because, Mayor Julian TI. Bagby says, real property was carrying too big a load in the city tax structure. The theater owners—two chain houses and an independent—promptly boarded their doors and nailed up signs reading “closed in protest to the city’s unfair license tax.” The theater representatives say the 5 per cent is not equitable, that other business houses aren’t taxed in the same fashion.
The mayor, who says the tax should yield about $12,000 to $15,-000 yearly, argues;
