C. Morris officiating: burial in Rosedale cemetery. •He had been playing in the yard, then had been missing not more than 15 minutes when his mother, Mrs. Claudia Braly, looked for h,m and, not seeing 'him, heard some boys playing to the east, started through the neighborhood. following a path the small children often used. She found Leonard Allen in a shallow fishpond on the grounds of the home of Mrs. Alice Fleet, and when her scream brought others, had them call an ambulance and the fire station where a pulmotor is kept. Pulmotor Used The motor began artificial respiration and when the ambulance driver arrived he continued this. Then the firemen came with the pulmotor and for two hours the battle for the small boy’s life continued. At one time his heart was felt to beat faintly but the efforts of the workers could not keep it sustained. Third son of the Bralys, Leonard Alien was bom not long after his father had gone overseas with his field artillery unit. Mack Braly, after service in Central Europe, emerged from his army service with rank of lieutenant colonel. Mack Braly has been city attorney here for 12 years. ^Member of Pioneer Family The Bralys are a pioneer family in this county. J. A. Braly, great-grandfather o f Leonard Allen, came to this area in the early nineties. A great-grandmother. Mrs, Emma Muratet, also survives and is living in Ada. Other relatives, in addition to the parents and brothers, include Mrs. Lottie Braly and Mrs. George Moore, grandmothers, both living here. John Moore, Oklahoma Citv, brother of Mrs. Mack Braly, was in South Dakota Monday and this caused delay of notifying him of the tragedy. Leonard Allen was described as “the happiest child in the world,' delighting in being with people he knew and winning their pleased affection in return.  *- Patrolman (hecks On School Buses Clerk Inspect* 38 Buses From Doxen Schools In Gorvin County .A ■■ "i W 4 Ufa VU* rtu ^ rn' %    '    Ti *    I    :;.:.-#    #    $*«■    Ik' : ’ss '■ i I I rnmmkAmrn —' k r! ,SnL??KING OVER HIS FISHING EQUIPMENT for the first time since finishing off the Boston Red Sox rn the final World Series game.

Hansen, who is starting his second week as city manager in Ada, made his first report to the City Council Monday night at its first regular meeting since the new manger came to office. The council was pleased with the completeness of the report given. A complaint registered with the council Oct. 14 concerning flood conditions that exist on East Seventh between Beard and Mississippi was investigated by the city manager. He reported that inasmuch as the street is not paved, it is not advisable to attempt a permanent solution at this time. However, measures of a temporary nature have been taken. A temporary concrete drainage line is now being .installed for a distance of approximately 232 feet long. Tile Already Owned The stock being used to help remedy the flood condition is from a stock owned by the city. The drainage tile was purchased* several months ago, but was never used. Hansen said that this job should be completed before the end of next week. The city manager brought to the attention of the council the fact that the city loses money every imc a building permit is issued. “The existing method of schedule does not afford the legitimate contractor, the property owner or tenants the protection they are rightfully entitled to,” Hansen said in his report. Suggests Permit Schedule Change The preesnt policy is to charge $1 for constructions estimated Celebration Pleasant Surprise to Modest Card Pitching Star He may never say just how much he appreciates the boat and trailer that is going to be presented to him, but Harry “The Cat” Brecheen will get just what he wanted when he takes the presents home with him following the celebration Tuesday afternoon. All the money and prestige that goes with being a big-league baseball player hasn’t changed “The Cat” in one respect. He is still the same type of fellow who played Junior Legion baseball in Ada back in the early 30’s. Surprise To Him Brecheen had no idea that there was anything like the planned celebration ‘‘in the wind” when he purchased a new outboard motor and mailed it to the fire station. The boat — an aluminum af the patrolmen Some 38 buses were inspected antd^ Patrolman Clark put his O K on them. The buses from the 12 schools were in Pauls Valley for the inspection. The buses are checked for the various things that make them safe for transporting school children to and from school. Each bus is inspected separately' and a copy of the inspection record is filed with /state authorities. Buses in Pontotoc county will be inspected next week and Johnston county buses will be inspected the following week. Trooper Kenneth Will will inspect the Pontotoc county buses and Trooper O. O.

Hansen pointed out that the continuance of the foregoing schedule will be a continuing of a direct monetary loss to the city. He then suggested a new rate to be charged. The proposed schedule is to charge $1.50 for buildings costing between $20 and $100 on up to $4.50 for those estimated to cost from $701 to $1,000. Each additional $1,000 or fraction to and including $15,000 would be $3.00. As the estimated cost increase the price per $1,000 decrease. The council told Hansen to continue with his plans for making the changeover. Locates Shop Equipment Hansen made an inspection of the present shop facilities and found several pieces of equipment in order for the mechanic to carry on the repair work required on city-owned vehicles. He reported that one hydraulic floor jack, three-ton capacity; one heavy duty bench drill and stand, one-half inch capacity; one air compressor having about seven cubic feet of air capacity per minute; one paint spray unit complete with spray gun, one six-inch double-wheel bench grinder, one transmission grease gun, one differential-type one or one-and-a-half-ton hoist and one valve reseating outfit, universal type, is needed now. The total cost of the items mentioned will not exceed $650. “Go” Signal on Signal Lights The council gave Hansen the go’ sign on recommended work in connection with the installation of new wiring for signal lights. “Inasmuch as this defective cable will have a salvage value far less than the cost of removal, it is recommended that the cable be abandoned in place in the new cable installed.” Hansen said, then added, “It is proposed to do the necessary excavating and street repair work with city em- 1 (Continued on Page 2, Col. 3) Russians Blocking U. S. Proposals On German Banking By EDWIN SHANKE BERLIN, Oct. 22 (ZP) — The Russians have blocked Allied agreement on an American proposal for decentralizing German banking institutions and setting up central land banks patterned after the U. S. Federal Reserve system, an announcement of the Allied Control Council disclosed today. The proposal, discussed yesterday at the council’s regular meeting, aimed at liquidating the economic power over business and banking held by five leading German banks.

This question, he insisted, should be decided in connection with general finance problems of Germany, such as stabilization of currency. In disagreeing with the Soviet proposal, U. S. Gen. Joseph *T. McNarney declared “it would be an indefinite and long time before the finacial structure of Germany received quadripartite agreement.’’ Because the council could not agree, the proposal was withdrawn from the agenda. The practical effect was that the entire matter will be referred back to the individual governments, said Theodore H.

The program has been so arranged that several notables will appear on the speakers platform, which will be located at the corner of Main and Broadway.'The IOO block on South Broadway will be roped to handle the crowd. Starting at the corner of Thirteenth and Broadway, the Ada High School band and Contna-homa pep club will march to the speakers stand, according to C. Russell Smith, who made most of the arrangements for the program. Trice Broadrick, Ada High school principal and president of the Junior Chamber of Comrff?rce will be master of ceremonies. Mayor Frank Spencer will give a welcome address. Leonard (Pepper) Martin will have a definite part on the program as he will bi called on to make a talk, introduce Brecheen and present the boat and trailer. The program has been planned to the very minute and most of it will be broadcast over Radio station KADA from 4:30 to 5 p.m. The celebration was started by the Junior Chamber of Commerce with the Chamber of Commerce and members of the fire department assisting. It was through the cooperation of these three groups that the program has reached its present peak. Newsmen and photographers from Dallas, Tex., and Oklahoma City will be present at the affair to give it full coverage.

The suit was brought by H. M. Shirley, Coalgate, defeated primary candidate for the senate from Coal and Atoka counties, and John R. Hickman, former secretary of the Coal county election board. The court pointed out that the law in question was passed nine years before its decision holding derpass south of Ada. The youngster told the police that he was in Ada and didn’t want to walk home, so he just “borrowed” the bicycle to make the trip to his home. Police w'ere still trying to figure why the youngster painted the bicycle if he only wanted a ride home. County Judge W. G. Long talked with the boy Monday morning to get a little more background on the case. He mentioned sending the youngster to the Pauls Valley Industrial School for Boys. When the school was mentioned, the boy said, “Let me go over there for about three months and see how I like it.” tutional and ruled that the present districts had been in existence too long to be affected by court action now. Counties involved in the suit were Bryan, Choctaw, Pushmataha; McCurtain, Coal and Atoka. SHAWNEE, Okla..

Cancer Unit Clinic Draws 96 Persons Visiting Physicians Planted With Response Here; Local Organisation Plannad There w’ere 96 persons register Monday at the cancer clinic held at the First Christian church, more than had been anticipated. Visiting physicians in charge of the mobile cancer detection unit that was here for the day expressed pleasure at the response, saying it was satisfactory in every way. Some of those who came had already had cancer identified, some had some of the indications that point to possibility of cancer and there were some who didn’t think they had cancer but simply wanted to take the examination and be certain. Results Known Soon Results of the tests will be sent back in about a week to local physicians, and at the same time letters will be mailed to the individuals examined and found with cancer or possibility lof having it advising them to repbrt to their doctor. A number of other programs rn Ada Monday night cut attendance at the meeting planned for showing of a picture on cancer and an accompanying talk, so this was postponed until a later date. The physicians with the unit then assembled with members of the Pontotoc County Medical Association, showed the movie and engaged in a clinical discussion of cancer with the Pontotoc county physicians. Local Organization Planned Next step planned here is organization of a county unit of the state “Field Army.” Mrs. Julia Mae Smith has been designated as county commander and is already making plans for getting the group organized and working toward an effective program that will eventually mean adequate facilities for cancer detection and treatment at Ada, to serve this part of the state. Mrs. Smith expresses appreciation for assistance of several local citizens, including Miss Flora Tibby, of the East Central State college registrar department, and Mrs. Beulah Mae Smith. These two took care of the secretarial work of registering the 96 who came to take the examination. She also appreciates the use of space in the Christian church. Doctors here with the cancer unit were Dr. A. B. Abshire, Dr. Joseph Kelso, Dr. Elmer Mussick and Dr. Malcolm Phelps, accompanied by Dr. Gray, dean of the Oklahoma University School of Medicine. Fire in Southern Ice Company Plant Two Hours Required To Extinguish Stubborn Blas# Starting in Engine Room Fire Chief Ed Haley was unable Tuesday morning to arrive at a figure in relation to damage done to the Southern Ice com-Pany plant when fire started in the engine room some time after midnight Monday. Firemen rushed to the scene of the fire at 2 a.m. and worked until 4 a.m. before the blaze was extinguished. Most of the damage was done to the east wall of the building and to the roof over the engine room. Almost every part of the building was damaged by smoke, according to Chief Haley, who made an inspection Tuesday morning. Employees of the ice plant are having to check all the freezing containers that occupied the room that caught fire to see that no excess water entered them. Chief Haley said that it will be Wednesday before the cause of the fire and the damage can be determined. (tai County Sort Reported Robbed A ‘general’ store located near Eureka school, three and a half miles southwest of Tupelo in Coal county, was robbed over the weekend and Sheriff Johnnie Phillips of Coalgate has asked Sheriff Clyde Kaiser's force and the city police to assist him in breaking the case. The reason for calling in Pontotoc county authorities on the case was that the case is similar to one that occurred in Ada only a short time ago. Most of the loot consisted of merchandise ranging from dominoes to sugar, coffee and other food items. Several cartons of cigarettes were also taken from the store. A fingerprint expert from Ada was taken to Coal county to make some prints found in the store, but by Tuesday morning there had been no individual connected with the prints found in the store building.

General Assembly Opens Buyers Show Balky Mood Refusal to Pay Sharply Higher Prices for Meat In Big Centers Has Effect By The Associated Press The growth of definite buyer resistance to meat prices that have spurted to an extreme of $1.50 a pound was shown today in a heavy majority of the key cities covered in a nation-blanketing survey. At the end of the first full week of uncontrolled meat prices, a spot check of 48 cities by the Associated Press produced a scoreboard that read like this: Red meat has come back in sharply improvem to ample quantities on the counters of 39 communities, in nine others — six of them in the east — meat is still scarce to non-existent. Prices have risen everywhere, in a few cases by as little or even less than the federal subsidy that vanished with OPA control, but in one-third of the 48 cities prices of $1 a pound or more have been chalked up for choice cuts. Resistance to these prices has appeared in degrees ranging from beyond the muttering stage to active organized picketing in 34 of the survey cities. In others the (Continued on page 2, column I) Break In (Olton Market Heads Off (lathing Boost WASHINGTON, Oct. 22—(ZP\— An OPA official said today that November shoppers for cotton dresses, shirts and similar items are due to save money as a result of last week’s market break. “The drop in cotton prices on markets will avoid a threatened boost in ceilings during November,” the agency spokesman told a reporter. He provided this explanation: Under a provision of the OPA extension act, the ceiling tags of most cotton goods must be tied to the market prices of cotton. Thus if market prices rise one month, OPA must lift its ceilings on cotton products the next month. Such increase were required for August, September and October. In the case of men’s, women’s and children's cotton garments the boosts totaled about IO per cent. Ceilings on cotton textiles, such as piece goods, climbed 23 per cent during the same period. The provision requires OPA to compute its new ceilings on either toe so-called parity price for cotton or the recent average market price, whichever is higher. With the parity price near 25 cents a pound, the average market price has been much higher. Last month it averaged 36.51 cents a pound during the 8th to the 22nd base period used by OPA for the purpose. For the period October 8 to 16 the average was above 38 cents. However last week’s slump offset the early increase so there will be no boost in ceilings for November, the OPA official said. Pres. Truman to Deliver Welcome Address Wednesday; S.

In addition, it appeared likely that the United States will continue to withhold its recognition of the Bulgarian government. ut least until satisfied that Bulgaria’s assurances of a free election have been fulfilled. The issue — once again emphasizing Soviet resentment over any attempt to probe into Russia’s spheres of interest — developed originally from a request made by Secretary of State Byrnes in Paris on September 24.

MARBLES FELT LIKE UKONUTS When Chief Haley Yanked On Boots and Found Grandson's Marbles There “They felt like coconuts,” was the comment of Fire Chief Ed Haley when he jumped into his boots to go to a fire at the Southern Ice company Monday night. He was referring to some marbles that he found when he slipped the boots on. What the fire chief didn’t know that his grandson. Joe Ed Jared, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Jared, Jr., had been playing with his boots duringg the day. It all happened as a surprise to Chief Haley and while still half asleep it took him a full minute to determine what had been crammed into his boots. To remedy the situation, the chief plans to keep his boots out of the reach of his young grandson, but even then he savs that he will inspect them before slipping them on. The fire chief apparently had forgotten how children get a-round because his youngest child is playing football for the Cougars, but the one lesson is enough of a reminder that there is a youngster in the house.
