Downtown Traffic Gets Some Plans
Center Line to Be Pointed In; Wooden Foot Bridges In City to Be Replaced
W. E Hansen, city manager, is continuing his trip-hammer method of getting things done and from the way he has started the same method will be followed until he has the city operating along the lines he wants.
He has purchased some paint for marking of pedestrian lanes on downtown streets. The walking zones will be marked off with white paint.
All lanes will be the same, which should tend to cut down the possibilities of accidents in the business district, Hansen said.
A censer line similar to the ones seen on highways will be painted down the middle of Main street. After the lanes are marked off, motorists will be expected to stay on the right side of the lines while driving in downtown Ada.
The paint that will be used is regulation traffic paint that meets specifications for the type of work it will be used, comes several dollars cheaper than that that was used the last time. Hansen said that the paint will last more than 40 days—the length of time the last paint stayed.
Following up this painting job, the street markets will be repainted. Hansen said that some of the markers looked as if they had not been painted since they were placed at their respective peaces.
Wooden Bridges to Go
Then, all of the wooden foot bridges that are now in use in Ada will be replaced in the near future by concrete bridges that will be arched to better serve the purpose.
. Hansen said Friday morning that he is turning a number of other ideas over in his mind and will be ready to make an announcement about them in the near future.

WASHINGTON. Oct. 18, (A*)— Secretary of State Byrnes drafted a report to the American people today on the diplomatic conflict between the United States and Russia.
Top authorities suggested he would make use of the occasion to lash back at criticism of his foreign policies by former Secretary of Commerce Henry A. Wallace.
Byrnes, who returned yesterday from the Paris peace conference and received President Truman's congratulations on a “most excellent job,” was scheduled to broadcast for 30 minutes beginning at 9 p. rn. (CST) tonight. NBC and some MBS stations arranged to carry the speech.
In writing his address Byrnes was reported to have two principal objectives in view:
1. To try to knock down Russian charges that the capitalist world is seeking to encircle the Soviet Union.
2. To smash the Wallace im
plications that his policy toward Russia is a policy of “toughness” and should be softened even at the risk of actions which, in Wallace’s words, might be called appeasement.
Those in a position to know says Byrnes will reaffirm his basic idea of American-Russian relations with a declaration that the United States intends to stand absolutely firm on its principles where major interests are involved and yet to deal partly with all difficult issues.
The secretary’s speech thus will be not so much a report on the work of the Paris conference as a discussion of the state of relations with the Soviet Union.
Tomorrow night Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich) intends to broadcast from Washington his reasons for believing that on the whole the Paris meeting actually made some progress toward restoring peace to Europe. Vandenberg and Senator Connally (D - Tex) were advisors to Byrnes. Connally is returning by

Trend Downward In Food Markets
CHICAGO, Oct. 18.—(ZP)—The trend continued downward in most of the nation's food and commodity markets today, although trade was mixed and there were some recoveries.
With the Friday receipts lower, Chicago hog prices recovered 50 cents to $1 a hundred pounds in early trade, after the most severe drop in history yesterday. Cattle and sheep were reported lower in early bids, however.
Chicago wheat futures, which fell the 5 cent limit yesterday, continued to slip and were down as much as 4 cents a bushel. Corn and oats started a mild recovery movement, then slid backward again. New York cotton future^ started strong and more than $8 a bale higher, but then lost most of the gains as liquidation resumed. Egg futures in Chicago started as much as half a cent and more than a dozen lower.
New York stocks continued to slip in early transactions, although some recoveries occurred following pickups in other markets.

Program For Scrapping of Wartime Controls Is To Be ‘Orderly Retreat’
Eisenhower Has Won Affection of British
From Royal Family to Commoners He's Tops, With No Precedent Among Americans for Their Vast Esteem
By RUSSELL LANDSTROM
LONDON, Oct. 18.—(AP)—General Dwight D. Eisenhower’s recent triumphant return to the United Kingdom afforded conclusive proof of the uninhibited affectionate esteem in which he is held by the British people.
No precedent existed for such an unqualified lionizing of an American visitor by all classes of the king’s subjects.

Ex-Red Eisler Heads Work in U. S.
Charges German Directs All Communist Activity;
Eisler Says It's Ridiculous
NEW YORK. Oct. 18 (/P)—■ Louis F. Budenz, former editor of The Daily Worker, communist paper, who renounced communism to rejoin the Catholic church, has identified a man he said was known as Hens Berger as the mysterious figure directing all communist activity in the United States.
Budenz, who left the party a year ago and now is an economics instructor at Fordham university, told newsmen yesterday that Berger’s real name is Gerhard Eisler. Budenz said he took orders from Berger when he was editing the paper.
Budenz declined to give further information about Berger, declaring he would be a witness late next month in Wallington before the house committee on un-American activities, and that he would lay before the committee certain documents and references containing information about Berger.
Told of Secret Figure
In a speech Sunday at Detroit, Budenz told of the existence of a secret but dominent figure in American communist affairs but mentioned no name.
Concerning the alleged No. I communist director, Budenz said then:
“He never shows his face. He does not appear in official communist buildings. Few communist leaders here ever see him. They all, however, follow his orders or suggestions implicitly. His name on an article is a sign that it is official. The average rank and file American communist however, never hear of him.”
Eisler Replies The Daily Worker, in today’s edition, published an interview with Gerhard Eisler, quoting him as saying the charges were “too ridiculous to answer.” The story in PM stated that “Eisler believes he was the intended victim of a carefully conceived plan to nourish the growing anti-Soviet feeling in this country.”
The interview in the Daily Worker described Eisler as a “slight, scholarly, middle-aged journalist*’ and said he and his wife had been scheduled to sail for their native Leipzig today “with state department approval.” “But their exit permit,” the story continued, “had been cancelled without reason on Wednesday after their baggage had already cleared customs and been placed aboard ship.”

ceremonies which made Eisen bower an honorary doctor of law at the University of Edinburg and at Cambridge and a freeman of the Scottish capital and of the ancient Burgh of Maybole, coveted distinctions though they are. merely were the formal manifestations of a regard expressed most significantly on the sidelines.
Common People Like Him
The measure of popular feeling was found in what people said to one another as they a-waited a glimpse of the general and in comment on the street in the subways and buses and, of course, in the pubs.
Typical was a barmaid’s re-j mark: “No matter what we may' think about some of the other Americans, nobody can say anything but the best about Ike.”
Disappointment was keen when he deprecated rumors that he might succeed W. Averell Harriman as U. S. ambassador to Great Britain.
“No American visiting this country has had his unfailing gift of saying the right thing at the right time with such faultless taste,” one woman novelist observed.
“Ike is worth the whole lot of professional diplomats,” said a major of artillery.
Hero Even To Teen-Agers
In view of Eisenhower’s tact and humor, sincerity and skill in putting people at ease, such comments from the more serious minded may not be so surprising.
What is astonishing, though, is the way he has endeared himself even to the flip and frivolous fledglings. Movie-struck girls have made him their here, too, placing him only a cut or two below Laurence Oliver and Humphrey Bogart, and that is idolatry indeed.
When the general .landed at Prestwick, crowds of stenographers, telephonists, waitresses, hostesses and others surged toward his plane. The WAAFS on duty would have been more fluttery only if the visitor had been Tyrone Power or Bob Hope. Children piled into city streets, waving small U. S. flags and yelling “Ike.”
Good Humor Never Upset
Nothing cracked Eisenhower’s good humor, neither rain nor cold, the meals he missed, the delays in some of the rituals, the importunate adulators nor pointed questions fired at him by news writers. Asked at press conference such personal questions as wH^ he didn’t wear more of the medals and ribbons to which he was entitled, he dismissed the subject with an airy, disarming pleasantry. Good humor was the keynote of every conference.
Charms Royal Family
Members of the royal family made no bones about their delight in entertaining him and his family. They found him charming and sharp of wit. Queen Mother Mary, herself as direct as a machinegun burst, was taken especially with his"' forthrightness.

Events Moving Fast Along Nation's Decontrol Front
WASHINGTON. Oct. 18. — CZP) —President Truman and his cabinet discussed wage controls today as the administration pushed with plans to take federal curbs off the economy, pegged to a Nov. I deadline for removal of most price ceilings.
Secretary of the Interior J. A. Krug, emerging from the 50-min-ute White House session, said the cabinet members had talked about wage controls “a little bit.”
Asked whether there would be any action soon with respect* to pay controls, Krug inquired, “What do you mean?” #
A reporter said he wanted to know whether there would be any action on the status of the wage stabilization board Krug replied that the board had not been discussed.
Pay Controls Discussed
The secretary said that the subject of pay controls themselves had come up, but declined to elaborate.
In his radio address Monday night Mr. Truman said removal of wage controls will be speeded up as the scrapping of price ceilings is accelerated.
Some labor and business leaders have demanded that the wage stabilization board be abolished, and the two industry members of the tri-partite panel have submitted resignations to Mr. Truman.
A high official said that foods, services and many commodities will be taken out from under ceilings by then — two months or more earlier than had been planned before President Truman’s meat decision.
This official emphasized to a reporter that it will be "an orderly retreat” from controls and will not result in “riot or chaos.”
Some Lids to Remain
Furthermore for the somewhat less immedediate future, he added that price lids will remain on rents, automobiles, building materials, refrigerators, furniture, basic clothing items and farm implements.
Major developments on the fast-moving decontrol front included:
1. Flour, bread and other bakery products figured in speculation as the next important food items to be freed of price ceilings.
The milling industry formally requested Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson to lift controls from wheat flour, semolina and farina, declaring that wheat supplies are ample.
Chicago flour circles voiced doubt, however, that flour ceilings would be scrapped immediately. Selling in wheat broke the prices of bread cereal in a jittery Chicago market.
Some Sweets Are Boosted
2. Coffee went off the controlled list completely. And price lids ! were hoisted slightly on jams, jellies, fruit preserves and men’s white handkerchiefs among other things. The increases will amount to one and two cents a pound jar for the sweets and from seven to 14 cents for handkerchiefs.
3. South of the border, the vanguard of 500,000 lean young Mexican beef cattle began to move toward fattening pastures and
