Oct. 16. — (^ — Secretary of State Byrnes, taking off for the United States this afternoon, announced he would make a broadcast report Friday night on the 21-nation Paris peace conference. Byrnes and his wife left Orly field in President Truman’s plane, “The Sacred Cow,” at 3:57 p.m. (8:57 am. CST), after a news conference in which he expressed confidence that Yugoslavia eventually would sign the peace treaty with Italy. The secretary said he thought that on consideration Yugoslav leaders would realize that no one power could make the peace, and would bow to the opinions of the other 20 allied nations. Emphasizing that there has been no c hange in American foreign policy, Byrnes said he would make a broadcast report on the conference to the American nation Friday night. They expect to arrive in Washington about 8 a m. CST tomorrow. Much Accomplished Giving correspondents his views on the 21-nation peace conference which came to an end yesterday with Yugoslav delegates boycotting the final session, Byrnes said he felt the 11-week-long parley had accomplished much important work in registering world opinion on peace treaty issues. Asked how he would describe current Russian-American relations, Byrnes said he would put that in his talk Friday night. Still For Publicity The secretary commented that after trying out the new method of diplomacy whereby the press was admitted to committee meetings, he was still all for publicity on conferences. He said some differences might have been exaggerated by by publicity, but that it had permitted the people to learn directly how decisions were taken, rather than learning from a few foreign ministers, whose accuracy might be subject to doubt. Byrnes, Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov and the others on the four-power foreign ministers’ council—Georges Bidault, French president and foreign minister, and Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin of Britain—are to meet in New' York City Nov. 4 for. final action on the satellite treaties and preliminary work on the German pact. They originally framed the drafts from wdiich the peace conference worked. Since July 29, in commission and plenary sessions, delegates had written treaties for Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania anc Finland. .---. .j  j I.

Safer Driving Of Taxis Is Ordered Hanson Confers with Operators, Announces Ruling In Effect Now City Manager W. E. Hansen announced Wednesday morning that he is ordering the city police to start a crack-down on city taxi companies to the extent of safer operation on the part of drivers for the taxi companies. “Reckless driving and speeding of taxicabs is going to stop within the city limits,” Hansen said, then added, “There will be no exceptions.” Shortly after telling Police Chief Quinton Blake to start work toward safer driving by taxi drivers, he talked with owners and operators of cab companies. “I have been informed that taxicabs have been handling persons injured in accidents without proper authority and this will have to be stopped because we have two funeral homes with efficient ambulance service. There is no need for taxis to be, handling injured persons,” Hansen said. NOWATA. Oct. 16, (^—Nowata and vicinity received temperature at one time dipping to a low of 30 degrees.

Four More Enlist In Regular Army All B-29s or Variations Except for Experimental B-36 and B-35 • By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON, Oct. 16, <&— The United States has more super-size bombers today than w’hen the war ended. The army air forces, striving to keep its long-range striking arm in readiness even though demobilization has made deep inroads elsewhere, now counts slightly more than 3,000 “very heavy bombardment” type aircraft. This number compares with 2,865 on hand when hostilities ended in August 1945. With the exception of two experimental airplanes—the B-36 and the B-35 “flying wing”—all the present force of VHBS are B-29s or B-29 modifications. Meal Supply Still Short Bul Prices Well Over Ceilings "Asking Prices" Ronge Upward in Now York; Ample Supplies Promised Later The first day after the lifting of meat controls saw the nation still on short meat rations, and prices—-where supplies were available—substantially above OPA ceilings. In some sections of the country the price for live hogs soared to all-time highs. A survey conducted by the Associated Press in the nation’s principal cities found predictions regarding ample supplies ranging from “by the coming weekend’’ to “not until Thanksgiving.” Asking prices in New York City ranged from former ceilings to a flat “dollar-a-pound for anything you see.” Prime ribs of beef rose from 44 cents a pound to 61 at one big market. Porterhouse steak from 57 to 75 cents and hamburger from 29 to 39 cents. Clyde F. House. U. S. department of agriculture market analyst in New York, said little meat was sold “openly” by wholesalers. He provided these sample prices: Cow bee f—$50 a hundredweight compared with the former ceiling of $20.50; good and choice steer beef—$55 to $60, compared with $25.50 to $26.80; commercial veal—$30 to $36 compared with $20.50; good and choice veal — $32 to $50, compared w ith $25.50 to $26.80. and good and choice lamb, $40 to $60, compared with $34.    * Prices for live hogs rose to local all-time highs in Richmond, Va., and Omaha. In the Virginia city the price was $27 per hundred pounds compared with Monday’s ceiling of $16.30. while in the latter city w here the ceiling was $15.00, live hog prices were quoted at $27.50. Cattle prices, too, were at a new high in Omaha. The price: $30 per hundred pounds compared to the OPA ceiling of $19.90. There were some advanced prices in Salt Lake City but most shops adhered to previous ceilings while meat supplies were “still as short as ever” in St. Louis. In Kansas City, most grocers had no meat. Major packers and meat suppliers promised no deliveries in less than 15 days. Cattle, Hogs OPA, Agriculture On Move Now Being Rushed to Market While New High Prices Con Be Obtained KANSAS CITY, Oct. 16, UP*— Meat producers, seeing profit possibilities in the removal of ceiling prices, rushed cattle and hogs to market here early today in such volume that police were called to direct traffic in the livestock district where loaded trucks jammed streets. Early arriving truckers reported highways leading to Kansas City from all directions were chocked with trucks loaded with livestock. Unloading was delayed by a shortage of help at the stockyards where a gate man estimated that 9,000 to 12,000 cattle and 3,000 hogs had been received before dawm. Policeman Foster Thornhill reported that at one time trucks were lined up for 15 blocks. A checker at the truck unloading docks reported livestock had been unloaded at the three docks at the rate of one truck about every five minutes since sundown last night, and that the flow continued throughout the night. Clyde Rose. Olathe. Kas., trucker who brought in 30 hogs, said stock raisers in his area seemed to be shipping everything that tfas in condition to leave the farm. Herschel Winfrey of Sweet Springs. Mo., who brought two truck loads of hogs, said: “I know these prices can’t last, and so do the other raisers around Sweet Springs. They are all shipping.” Trucks in the waiting lines were from Missouri Kansas and Iowa. with a few' from Oklahoma. Some In Reserve AAF officials emphasize, however, that not all the 300-plus planes make up the VHB operating force. Only part of the total actually are being flow; the remainder constitute reserve or spare aircraft. Deliveries of B-29 types still are being made to the AAF. although in minor numbers. While preserving and slowly expanding its fleet of aircraft capable of carrying atomic bombs thousands of miles, the AAF has disposed of nearly 12,-000 of its winged workhorses of World War II, the B-17s and B-24s. At the wartime peak, the air forces had 12,919 “heavy bombers” of these types. Sixteen months later—on last August 31 —it had only 961 left. Many Sold for Scrap Except in the relatively few instances where the bombers could not be flown from storage fields and hence were scrapped on the spot for parts, the B-17s and B-24s were declared excess and turned over to the war assets administration. WAA sold most of them for scrap. Those still retained by the AAF are being used for personnel cargo carrying purposes and for experimental wfork. In the latter category, a few B-17s have been converted to “drone” and drone control airplanes. When such new' types as the B-36 and B-35 and the more distantly projected jet-propelled VHBS get into production, the B-29s will move into the obsolescent stage aleng with the fins and B-24s.

Goering Couldn't Take ll—Jackson Justice Soys He Killed Myth of Nosi Bravery WASHINGTON. Oct. 16. Supreme Court Justice Jackson said today Hermann Goei ing’s suicide “killed the myth of nazi bravery and stoicism and deep conviction.” “The founder of the concentration camps, w'here death was handed out to millions, could not face the gallows, himself,” Jackson said in a statement. The justice, who was chief U. S. prosecutor at Nuernberg, stated the “real significance” of the suicide lies in its effect in Germany. “Goering, the top surviving nazi leader, was the only defendant on whom a martyr myth might have been founded,” Jackson said. “The gallows offered him the most effective platform from which to impress his sympathizers with the depth of his conviction and his selflessness for the cause. Frankly I feared he would do it. But he lacked the character. “Even the smaller men who were his satellites died more courageously.” Former Konawa Woman Is Dead Mrs. Lon Gordon, Wife Of Konawa Druggist, Dias In Texos Mrs. Lon Gordon, 67, w ho w ith Mr. Gordon moved recently from from Konawa to Donna, Tex., died at Donna this morning.

Department Study Food Ceiling Ban New Order Expected To Outline Pottern for Strip-ping Wage Controls By MARVIN L ARROWSMITH WASHINGTON, Ort 16. <-l* -T h e government reportedly drafted an order today to speed the junking of wage controls. Simultaneously, OPA and the agriculture department “seriously considered’’ wiping out price ceilings on all food items still under control Thus on both the price ani wage fronts quick ai tion appeared to be shaping up in line with the swifter decontrol tempo signalled by President Truman when he scrapped all ft Seral restraints on meat. Rent Control To Stay These other development rounded out the picture: 1. Senators studying the implications of Mr. Truman’s action on meat foresaw an early end to almost all price controls, except those over rent# either bv voluntary government action or by legislation. 2. The republican party contended that handling of the meat problem by the democrat-; is a good reason for a GOF congress. 3. While livestock prices jumped in the wake of decontrol. Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson predicted there will be more meat in butcher shops “in about IO days” But he said the shortage will last through 1946. Will Check On Dairy Products 4. The decontrol board, reversed on its ruling which restored meat ceilings, met to take another look at what's happening to uncontrolled prices for dairy products. 5.
