The company is preparing a motion picture pertaining to the use of DDT spray on the farm. The officials were interested to learn about the effectiveness of the sp ray mixture that is being used in every county in Oklahoma. Hereford Heaven Chosen To film the picture, a site or location had to be found and Gk-lahoma was chosen. State officials checked a number of probable locations and decided that Hereford Heaven had the best natural setting for a picture. Everything was selected right down to the exact location and then it was decided that the Lazy D ranch should be the place. Only Statewide Program D- Font officials said Tuesday that Oklahoma is the only state in the nation that has a DDT EJ raying program that covers the en*ire state Clyde Bower, who is connected v ith the State Department of Agriculture, said that since April 2 when the first spray units were put n the field 1.200.000 head of livestock has been sprayed as a part of the program. In Pontotoc county, it was estimated that 30,-000 head of livestock has been sprayer. State Department of Agriculture officials decided that it would be a credit to Oklahoma and to Hereford Heaven for the best animals available shown in the picture and for that reason the Lazy D was selected.  «- Not One Meeting But Two Are Held Ado Officials Soy One Here Officio! os Executive Committee Wos Here Instead of only one Choctaw-Chickasaw meeting being held Monday, there were two meetings one at Ada and another at Atoka and each group claims that its meeting was the official meeting of the organization Ada officials said that the meeting here was the official meeting because the soate execu-t; e committee met with them.

RUSSIAN ASSAILS ITALY’S CLAIMS Sorry Lot of Animals Coming Into Stockyards, Prices Drop By WILLIAM FERRIS CHICAGO, Sept. 5.—(/P)— Some weird looking meat animals were stumbling into the stockyards today as arrivals at all livestock markets declined drastically in the first week of revived OPA ceilings on hogs and cattle. Most of the cattle received here for slaughter were dried up cows, offering a highly unappetizing type of meat for consumers. They were practically lost in the great Union stockyards which last week were jammed with bawling steers. All former low volume Chicago records were broker yesterday when only 1.200 cattle, 700 hogs and HOO sheep and lambs arrived. Nearly all of the 8,000 pens were empty. An equally sorry lot of hogs was being unloaded. These consisted of emaciated sows, boars and inferior grades of pigs. Livestock observers said there was not one good pork chop in the bunch. Similar unimpressive runs were reported at other marketing centers. As the receipts dwindled, many packers began laying off workers. Meat packers were not surprised at the dearth of offerings. They had predicted it. Nearly everything which could be marketed, including some light cattle and hogs which should have been held back on farms, was unloaded in the period of price-free markets, observers explained. Livestock men would not predict how long the small receipts would continue. Ordinarily, they pointed out, hog arrivals fall off in September ^nd then start increasing toward the end of the year. Receipts normally are heaviest in January and February. Cattle receipts usually are heaviest in October and November. Last week, with restrictions lifted, the markets were flooded with cattle and hogs and a record high of $30.25 was paid for prime steers. The previous ceilings on cattle were $18 as compared with the present maximum of $20.25. Ceilings on hogs now are $16.25 compared with $14.75 up to last June 30. Boom Engulfing ll. S.

Linscheid, addressing the first fall meeting of the Chamber of Commerce for the ninth time, told the filled dining hall that a ‘‘gargantuous boom” is engulfing our national financial structure, evidenced by “fantastic” prices, among other things. The East Central college president agreed with the experts that a sharp depression is eventually probable, but disagreed with most predictions that a ‘crash’ is inevitable. The Soviets are counting strongly, Linscheid declared, on an early collapse of America’s economy that would leave us an impotent nation. “How else can you interpret Russia’s activities?” the eminent speaker asked. This is the answer to the Reds’ stalling tactics at Paris and in the UN, the educator reasons. Some Prices Fantastic ‘The unprecedented shortage 57.

Pontotoc Tone Hill Sold for Sausage Not the Most Famous Of His Nome, Turner Bull Hod Suffered Injury Pontotoc Tone 13th (not the famous Pontotoc Tone No. 3555000) from the Roy J. Turner Ranch was sold at Oklahoma City Wednesday for sausage at the OPA ceiling of $12.90 per hundred. Jim McClelland, manager of the Turner Ranch, said that the bull was of no further use on the ranch because he became ruptured and could not sire calves. A two-year old weighing 1.440 pounds might have sold for $5,000 at the annual ranch sale if he had not been ruptured, said Manager McClelland. The bulls sire was grand champion of the National Hereford show in Dallas, Tex., in 1944. The dam, H. T. Miss Rupert II, was champion female at state fairs in Illinois. Iowa, Missouri and Oklahoma in 1938 and was second in her class at the San Francisco Exposition in 1939. The loss of the bull means that McClelland will have to find a replacement for the Turner sale in January of next year; in cases like this it is necessary for five or six extra animals to be fitted for the occasion. I Read The News Classified Ads. ing power of the American people” are the impulses that keep the upward spiral of the present boom moving. “Some prices are fantastic,” Linscheid declared. More churches have burned mortgages after paying off their indeptedness than during any corresponding period in our history, he said. Department stores are showing terrific and startling increases in volume over the nation as a whole. Sports events are drawing record crowds, with tickets selling for unheard of prices. And the American public as a whole is earning an amazing annua! income, the greatest in agy nation. “Black Market” A True Market The ‘black market’ has flourished to such an extent that it overshadows the “speak-easy” trade of the 20’s. In fact, the latest issue of Fortune magazine (which Linscheid commended as a singular and great American publication) concludes that the ‘black market’ now is of proportions that make it a true market, a distinct economic force. Linscheid agreed with the magazine that historians of the future will probably write of our age as one of vast ‘black markets.’ Many guesses by experts, have been made as to how long the boom will last. But the speaker noted that experts have already missed one guess: It was believed that the post-war period would wrestle with a group of unemployed, but the figure stands at a record low. “The fact that the experts missed doesn’t surprise me in ti least, however,” he added with a wry smile. “Take the last 15 or 20 years: The experts in any line of work have missed their guesses more often than they have hit.” Russia Figuring It Closer But, he said the financial experts do forecast a depression around 1950. The Russians figure it closer than that. In fact, the Soviets believe that our boom enough, that if they can stall the enough that if they can stall the machinery of the United Nations and the Paris Peace Conference they might win a tactical victory. Russia’s economists figure our depression is at hand, that it will be a major internal disaster, and that its international significance will be to disarm us of all prestige abroad. On the other hand, Linscheid believes that prosperity in the automobile industry could last well beyond 1950. He thinks that construction of homes, roads hospitals. harbors, and public works County Takes Many Places At Dairy Show Hot Larges! County Entry List ot State Show, Only One With Four Breeds Pontotoc county was the only county with four breeds at the Sooner State Dairy show that began at Enid Wednesday and continued through Saturday. The county also had the largest entry—20 head—of all counties in the state. And the Pontotoc county folks weren’t up there just for the trip —winnings on the first day’s competition prove that this county is in the thick of things in the various classes. Guernseys are being judged Thursday and Holsteins Friday. Dr. Ed Granger has some entrants in the show from his fine herd of Jerseys, and there are 19 calves from the county’s farm youth dairy program. A wire from C. H.

MILTON KELLY BOMBAY, Sept. 5.—tJPt—Scattered police and military gunfire still echoed today in troubled Bombay but order appeared to be returning slowly after four day of bitter communal strife in which officials said 189 persons had been slain and 527 wounded. Unofficial estimates placed the casualties at more than 200 dead and 600 injured.

Meanwhile all the city’s 70 mills remained closed. Few shops remained open and in the northern section of the city traffic was completely suspended. American Manes Will Not Parade By L. S. CHAKALES ATHENS, Sept. 5.—i/P>—Plans to parade American airplanes across the skies of Athens were called off today as the U. S. aircraft carrier Franklin D. Rdose-velt and escorting vessels reached the t*Greece. Rear Adm. John H. Cassady, commander of the task force, announced at Naples last Saturday that the Roosevelt would send up 120 planes to write FDR above Athens—“at the request of the Greek government.” A naval attache of the U. S. embassy, said today the air show had been considered but had been called off because it could not be integrated into a jammed four-dav program. The carrier crew had made plans for the air show but was advised while at sea to call it off. Informants who arrived with the carrier said the call-off order came from a diplomatic source in Athens. Airport Meet Begins Here Representatives of 25 Cities Invited to Conference on Needs of Future District, state and local officials were on hand early Thursday morning for a dicussion among themselves before the start of a Seventh District airport meeting at the Aldridge hotel. W. O. Karpenko, district airport engineer of Oklahoma City, said Thursday morning that officials from 25 cities in this area were requested to attend the meeting, as the meeting as a whole will be informative. Needs Survey Planned The first order of business on the agenda was the survey of the three year needs of the various cities. This information has to be available before the next step can be taken. The information was not expected to be available at the meeting. Karpenko said that every prospective location must be justified from an aeronautics point of view. Because of the late start made with this plan, all officials and cities involved will have to work fast. The Civil Aeronautics commission has asked the state aeronautics commission to assist in gathering information that will determine if a location is justified in the planning of an airport. Guy Thrash, member of the state group, was named as acting chairman of the meeting, which got underway at IO a m. Thrash will assist H. J. Skip-with, representative of the CAA. in explaning the federal airport aet. Data and information regarding the aeronautical needs of the seven counties will be discussed and compiled at the* meeting so that the various groups of men can return to their respective cities and obtain needed information. Invitations were mailed to qualify cities in Coal, Hughes, Pittsburg. Okfuskee, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie and Seminole counties.

Atom Bomb Poison Kills Inside Ships By ELTON C. FAY WASHINGTON. Sept 5.—(Ah The atom bombs radium-like poison can penetrate a tightly closed ship and spread death throughout the interior. This was disclosed today in an “operation crossroads” report dealing with the animals used in the Bikini tests. Among other things, the report said that radiation sickness proved fatal to all of the 20 pigs stationed on four of the target ships used in the underwater bomb test. “Buttoned Up” Pigs Die The pigs had been placed in the medical quarters of the vessels, which were in “buttoned up” battle condition with hatches and parts closed. Six pigs were found dead within four days, the remainder died within two weeks. The atomic depth charge, by creating a deadly radioactive mist anti tossing tons of heavily I contaminated water aboard the target ships, produced a far more poisonous effect than the first airburst bomb. In that test. 3,030 rats. 176 goats and 146 pigs were used, stationed at points in 22 target j vessels to simulate crewmen. I A preliminary survey indicates that about IO per cent of the animals in the airburst test died from the blart of the bomb and that IO per cent more fell victim [ to radiation sickness. Blast, Radiation Deadly ^ In the underwater explosion. 75 rats were killed initially bv blast, radiation or other reasons, Sand 49 more died >f radiation illness within a month. Bomb damage in the airburst I test was mainly to above desk I portions. The underwater blast. in addition to ripping open hulls, tore loose fittings inside the ships [and flung them about with projectile-! ike force. Casualties thus produced presumably would aug I ment those resulting from th** | bomb s poisoning effect. , Cify Council Has : Various Naders - This Week's Meeting Also Heors Protest on Ruling OTO Buses to Move Ada city council met this week.1 took up some routine business and also Had come before it some affairs ranging from arguments over closing an alley to whether] a barn in an alley is in folks way.

OPA Puts Lid Back On Meat Wholesole Meot Ceilings To Go Bock On, Cosmetics OH Ceiling List By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON, Sept. 5. -tipi—• OPA erased ceilings from low-priced lipstick, toothpaste and other cosmetics today but put the lid back on meat at wholesale. This last step in preparation for the return of butcher shop ceilings on Monday. On still another price front, the decontrol board took a second look at ceiling-free milk and butter and apparently decided again that the cost of those items is not “unreasonable.” A spokesman for the panel said it does not I plan, at present, to rail a hearing on the subject. That would Ik* the first step toward any recontrol action. The three members are holding their first full session since August 20. when they ordered ceilings put back on meats, fats and oils but not on dairy products or grain. Chairman Roy L.

Says Trieste Is Yugoslav Vishinsky to Stood by Big Four Decision on 'Free Territory/ Doesn't Like It By ROBERT HEWETT PARIS, Sept. 5—-P— Andre! Y. \ is hi risky, Russian deputy foreign minister, called on the 21-nation peace conference today to “reject emphatically” Italian claims to disputed Trieste. Outlining Soviet Russia’s stand on the leading territorial issue before the post-war conference Vishinsky said that Yugoslav a has an “unquestionable right” to Trieste. He said the Soviet Union was supporting the big four agreement to make a free territory of the port only because of political consideration.” The Russian diplomat, in a speech before the Italian political and territorial commission, accused Ivanoe Bonomi, former Italian premier, of “cloaking annexations with the flag of justice ’ in claiming the important Adriatic port for Italy. Vishinsky made it plain that Russia would abide bv the big four foreign ministers decision to create the free territory of Trieste but declared sharply: Right Unquestionable “Yugoslavia has an unquestionable right to the port and town of Trieste. The decision of the foreign ministers contains a minimum of justice. In our opinion it should contam a maximum. of justice. “But sometimes it is not possible to have a maximum of justice in dealing with political considerations. Sometimes when w e are dealing with high politics two don t make four — sometimes they add up to five.” Russia’s voice in the Tries*? dispute was heard on the fourth day of debate on the 1st nan settlement Italy and Yugoslavia have filed conflicting claims for the port. and Sen. T m Coftnally ( D Tex) yesterdav declared the United States wants to see an autonomous Trieste government “that v. ill command respect of both Yugoslavia and Trieste.” Assails Italian People In a biting personal attack en Bonomi and the Italian people Vishinsky said that Italy’s claim to Trieste was a manifestation of •the old “annexionist and expansionist policy ” Italy’s motive, he added, was “a desire to grab up foreign properties ’ Yugoslavia s claim to Trieste was based. Vishinsky continued, on the dominant Slav population of the hinterland surrounding the port city— which has a majority of Italians within the city limits. The Soviet minister called the act of Rapallo bv which Italy obtained Trieste in the first world war “an act of robbery.” Boneen:. he declared, “became famous not by .service to the people but by dubious role as war minister cf the fascist regime.” Dozen Arrested In Gambling Case Eleven Poy Fines, Twelfth Still in City Jail Twelve negroes, eight men and four women, were arrested bv i members of trie city police fore** Wednesday night and charged with gambling. •The dozen people were found gambling with cards at the corner of Sixth and Broadway.
