SSStffis sss slurs ss— ADA, OKLAHOMA, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13. 1946 FIVE CENTS THE COPY always been a favorite with Ada folks and his success in the major league is not a surprise to most Adans because they have been watching him perform off and on for the past 16 years. He not only winters in Ada, but has lived in Pontotoc county for the past 27 years. Brecheen wras born near Broken Bow, Okla., and moved to Pontotoc county with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Brecheen who now live at 217 East Morris in McAlester, when he was three years old. Got Schooling in County The southpaw hurler, who is the star of the World Series that is now in progress, received all of his schooling in Pontotoc county and played baseball here for at least 16 years. His full name is Harry David Brecheen (pronounced Bra-keen), but he is known to his St. Louis fans only as “The Cat” while Adans think of him as ‘Harry’. The wiry 5 foot, 9H inch, ISO pound Brecheen has played baseball in almost every state in the union, pitching his way up from way down in the minors. Brecheen has been married 13 every place the St. Louis Cardinals travel. Her father, Jim Caperton, has been a resident of Ada for several years. Made Name With Legion Juniors Harry actually started his baseball career in 1930 when he started playing baseball with the Ada American Legion Juniors. He played for the Juniors the following two years. During his three years with the Juniors he pitched 67 games and was credited with winning 65 of them. The Adan started his organized baseball career at Portsmouth, Va., went from there to Topeka, Kan., to Houston and Galveston, Tex., Little Rock, Ark., Columbus, Ohio, and then to the St. Louis Cardinals. It was not exactly in the order mentioned that he made the steps upward, but he played for clubs in each of those cities. Brecheen is definitely a sportsman at heart because the first thing he does when he arrives in Ada is to start preparation, for a hunting or fishing trip. He spends his winter months hunting and fishing in southeastern Oklahoma, keeping in trim for the next season s mound chores. Truman Prepares Decision On Meat Control For Monday Night Address Gen.

Friday he got a telegram at his off ic* saving he had been certified to the war department and asking if he would accept the position, at $10,000 a rear. Telling of this, Crawford grinned as he remarked "I passed the telegraph boy on his bicycle before he got to Main street, getting to the telegraph office to wire them I was accepting.” The first return message was that he was to be ready to leave immediately for a plane trip to Washington and then on to Germany. Crawford rushed to get ready, then got a message saying it probably wouldn't be un* til the late part of the month v* hen he'd be leaving here. But Thursday of last week came the third message, summoning him to be on his way and he left Thursday night.

John Cravens Of Near Konawa Dead Funeral Services This Afternoon at Konawa For Pioneer Farmer J. B. Gay, Who Came lo Ada in 1906 From Texas as Cattleman, Dies, Funeral Today City's Income Has Gained Sharply In Recent Months Water rents have increased a total of $7,600.58 during the past three months, during which time there had been no changes in the price charged for water. This one increase alone, explain councilmen, is enough to pay the new city manager’s salary for one year. Since the new form of city government went into effect July 22 there has been a steady rise in the money taken in by various branches of city government. Some showed gains earlier. For instance, water rents for September, 1946, brought $11,-'72.35 compared to $7,853 for the same month last yeaT, an increase of $3,919.35. In August of this year, $9,422.34 was collected for water rent compared to $7,172.33 for August of last year. The increase for September of this year over August of this year is $1,669.33 and the increase over “IL same period last year was 5680.67, according to figures prepared for a report to the city council. Since the parking meters have been installed, $2,724.80 has been collected from the meters, $96.05 has been paid in by doctors and persons holding similiar duties for a total of $2,820.85 through this source. Over a period including May, June, July, August and September O' thls year fines totaled $4,-4<9.50; and during the same per- year the total was 8<8 25, a net gain of $2,601.25. Trie reason for the increase in revenue collected by the water department was that all bills have been paid and all meters read, officials say. Bills that were taken to the city manager were not reduced, according to a report by him.
