City Council To Take Up Routine, Planning Matters
Heretofore, the Pontotoc county fair has been somewhat of a backwoods proposition, but this year it will compare favorably with any county fair in the state and the reason is that more people have taken more interest in the event, officials say.

In the predominately Catholic French area, the communists

The combined returns: Chris-t.cii Socialists 1.090.810; Socialists 433 086; Independents 410,820; communists. Liberal democrats of the Palatinate got 12,293 votes in tne Palatinate.

Coll* on U. N. for Confer-enc© on Conservation Of Global Resources
By LARRY HAECK
1«LA£E SUCCESS, N. Y., Sept.
President Truman today called on the United Nations to summon a world scientific consence on conservation to study global resources, including “the possible peaceful uses of atomic energy within the next few decades.
TU residential request, submitted to the economic and social | council through delegate John G. Winant, asked the council to convent a United Nations scientific conference on resources conservation and utilization in the last six months of 1947 somewhere in the Unjted States.
4 Declaring that conservation can become a major basis of peac.^ rthe president said:
VV arfare has taken a heavy toll t many na*ural resources, the rebuilding of the nations and the industrialization of under-developed areas will require an additional large depletion of them. Waste, destruction and uneconomic use of resources anywhere damage mankind’s common estate.
“The real or exaggerated fear of resource shortages and declining standards of living has in the past involved nations in warfare Every member of the United Nations is deeply interested in preventing a recurrent of that fear and of those consequences.”
The United States proposed that a preparatory committee be set up to organize the conference and said it would later suggest countries for membership on the drafting group.

Five Die in Stale Traffic Accidents In Past Week End
By The Associated Press
Five persons, including Tulsa mothers and their sons, died in traffic accidents in Okla-loma Sunday.
Their deaths raised the 1946 toll on Oklahoma highways to 366.
The highway patrol reported a defective steering wheel resulted in the deaths near Catoosa of Mrs. Dorothy Lambert, 32 her 10-weeks-old son Richard Jarvis, and Mrs. Opal May Little, 37, and her 13-year-old son Bill.
Ode Ray Lambert, 45, husband of one of the dead women, told the patrol a rod broke in his steering wheel, sending his car plowing into Duck Creek bridge near Catoosa.
Lambert escaped with minor injuries, Bryan Little, 15, Mrs. Little’s other son who was riding in the car, also escaped serious hurts.
Joe Stallik, 21, who lives near Harrah, was killed when his automobile left the road and turned over a quarter-mile west of Harrah.
The five deaths bring this month’s fatality total to 24-three less than for a comparable period for September, 1945.

LONDON, Sept. 16 bp)—Five communist leaders charged with conspiracy in the organization of a squatter invasion of vacant London luxury apartments received an eight-day stay of arraignment this morning when Prosecutor H. A. K. Morgan announced that he did not intend to ‘ go on with the cash today.”
The attorney for the communists. four of whom are London municipal officials, agreed to postponement of the hearing until Sept.. 24 and the accused were freed on continuance of the same bond posted when they were charged last week.
Although the prosecution and defense were apparently in agreement on the delay there was no indication in court of the reason for the postponement.
Ex-Paratrooper Falls to Death
BOWLING GREEN, O., Sept. 16 (/Pi—Gordon Lahman. 18, of Eagle Rock, Calif., only ten days out of a paratrooper regiment, dropped 3,000 feet to his death before a crowd of 1,000 at a “Fly-ing Tiger Air Circus” here yesterday.
A verse, “The Paratrooper’s Prayer.” was found in his clothing: “Gory, gory, what a helluva way to die . . . This is my last jump.”

Bill Coe, who staged a surprisingly strong race in the July primary — and led the voting in Pontotoc county in that first primary — will introduce Turner, __ oilman-rancher who was runner-and I UP to Coe in the first primary and swept the county voting in the runoff election.
This will be an opportunity for voters to see these two favorites of Pontotoc county democrats on the platform combining their appearance in the van of the campaign for votes of November 5. Voters Urged To Turn Out Local party leaders are urging people of Ada and Pontotoc county to turn out in large numbers, for they have reports indicating that Ada will be the mecca Wednesday for hundreds of visitors trom adjoining counties.
There will be many Indians here, for on Wednesday night an important Choctaw-Chickasaw meeting is scheduled here. There will also be pashofa, native Indian dish, served Wednesday at the rally for the Indians who prefer this on their menu.
All in all, it will be a big day for the democratic party in this area, an opportunity to meet and hear leading candidates, to hear discussions of issues of the campaign and to mingle in an informal atmosphere of party harmony.

CIO-AFL Clash Is Now Feared
Between Picketing CIO Seamen and AFL Longshoremen Ordered Back To Wark
By The Associated Press
The twelfth day of the nationwide maritime strike found New York City’s waterfront tense today with threats of clashes between thousands of picketing CIO seamen and AFL longshoremen under instructions not to “respect any commy picket line.” CTO National Martime Union leaders hauled out their most formidable weapon—the massed picket line with marchers so closely linked it is virtually impossible to squeeze through—as negotiations to end the walkout collapsed.
Police Strengthened Police strength was bolstered throughout the sprawling docks area. COI leaders said last night there might be trouble if the AFL longshoremen attempt to breach the picket lines as they did Saturday to help unload the S. S. George Washington.
Fourteen liners with more than 6.000 passengers — half of them army or navy personnel— were due in New Y'ork Port during the day.

The first clash between the opposing unionists came in midafternoon shortly af.er the French liner, Colombie. arrived with approximately 1,000 passengers.
About 150 longshoremen, according to a police account crashed the NMU picket lines and started removing baggage.
In the confusion which followed one AFL longshoreman was arrested because he struck an NMU picket, police said. No charge was placed against him immediately.
Many Longshoremen were on the job along the waterfront but they had not passed picket lines i to get there. Some men, anxious to return to work after ll days of idleness, reported for work early, before the CTO pickets were dispatched for duty.
Ryan Urges Return To Work
T’ **yan- President of Ar L longshoremen, was covering the waterfront in his black limousine, urging his men to go back to work where steam was up and winches could be operated.
Twice he shouldered through masses of the NMU pickets along j unmolested, to confer with his I men.
. don t respect any commy picket lines.” he said. “If the AFL seamen will give us steam, we’ll work.
There was no indication that AU, seamen, who had the support of CTO seamen in the early days of the strike, would return to work until members of the rival union, too, had won a pay rise.
The AKL seamen won their demands in a ruling by economic stabilizer John R. Stedman, but no provisions were made immediately for passing the increase along to CIO maritime workers
NMU bosses, consequents, declared that more than 20.000 of their men in New York port alone would he marshalled for the greatest show of strength ever seen in a maritime labor dispute.

WASHINGTON, Sept 16 (ZP) — Secretary of Commerce Wallace today reaffairilled his stand for the softer U. S. policy toward Russia which President* Truman disavowed as adrr.inisti ation policy. and said he will continue to fight publicly for his views.
Wallace’s announcement apparently heralded a wide-open split in Mr. Truman’s cabinet between the commerce secretary and Secretary of State Byrnes, whose aids here and in Paris have made no secret of his bitter opposition to Wallace’s ideas.
Has Talked With Truman Wallace talked with President Truman by telephone immediately before he issued his statement, Aides said. They reported he would see the president probably tomorrow, but by Wednesday at the latest.
Wallace’s statement given to reporters shortly after he returned to his office from New* York said:
“I stand upon my New York speech. It was interesting to find that both the extreme right and the extreme left disagreed with the views I expressed. Feeling as I do however, that most Americans are concerned about, and willing to work for, pcac , I intent to continue my efforts for a just and lasting peace and I shall, within the near future, speak on this subject again.”
Indians ol County Meet Wednesday On Tribal Affairs
Eli P. Goforth, president of the Pontotoc county Choctaw-Chick-asaw group, has called a meeting for 4 o’clock Wednesday afternoon at which time members will hear a report of business transacted by officials of the two tribes on a recent trip to Washington, D C.
Officials of the two tribes thought that Wednesday would be a good day for the meeting as many county Indians will be Ada attending the Democratic rally.
President Goforth said that in addition to the speaking one of the main attractions will be the serving of some real pashofa prepared bv Mrs. Joe Rushing.
Jerry Folsom, secretary to the local unit. said that Floyd May-tubby of Tishomingo recently made a trip to Washington.
Folsom last week met with Bi n Dwight. Choctaw tribal attorney, and obtained information that vv'ill be of interest to county Indians.
The meeting here will be to inform the Indians of various business transactions that have taken place during the past month and to gain information from the local group pertaining to future business.
Tribal officials are planning to make another trip to Washington in about a month and after that trip officials will come to Ada to make a personal report on their trip.
| Aides at the commerce depart -j merit told reporters before the .statement was issued that Wal-j lace had talked bv telephone with the White House and probably would see Mr. Truman sometime tomorrow.
They said Wallace would have nothing further to say about his New' York speech today.
At the State Department, officials said they hoped Wallace would decide against making any more speeches on foreign policy unless he fir t clears them with state. Information as to his actual course wa- lacking there, however.
Wallace Has No Comment
At the commerce department j Wallace aides said Wallace had no immediate comment on the ; reaction to his speech—including President Truman’s repudiation of his approval of it.
They said Wallace might issue a statement later in the dav There was sold talk, too, that he might try to see the president and clear up the situation result-i ing from Mr. Truman’s saying that while he had not approved what Wallace said, he did approve his right to say it.
Clayton Visits President
Senator Declares World Peace More Important Than Territory, National Pride
By JOSEPH DYNAN
PARIS, Sept I•-—oF)—Senator Tom Connally, replying to Soviet Foreign Minister V. M Molotov, today demanded that the peace conference establish Trieste as a truly free state, independent of both Yugoslavia and Italy.
Citing the principles on Trieste agreed upon by the foreign min* isters council. Connally asserted these agreements should be honored for the sake of peace.
“Let us make Trieste the symbol of peace and security in the world.” the Texas senator urged.
Refers To Agreement
Connally referred to the agreed portions of Article 16 of the Itai-peace treaty, giving the United Nations security council responsibility for maintaining the integrity and independence of Trieste.

China Government Forces Advancing, Reds Are Deliant
NANKING, Sept. 16 — UP) — Government troops drove deepening wedges into the Chinese communists’ Yenan-Kalgan line of communications today, seeking to isolate the two key Red cities —and peace hopes dropped to near zero.
Communist spokesman Wang ; Ping-Nan acknowledged that “we * may lose this or that citv or this or that area,” but added that “we are not worried. The government may sieze land, but cannot win the war against us as long as oui troops are intact.”
And the Reds will not discuss any political settlement, he reiterated, until Chiang Kai-Shek pledges an unconditional ceasefire order. This Chiang has been unwilling to do.
Pro-government field dispatches said the communists already were removing supplies from Kalgan, regional base dominating the gateway to Chahar province to the north. Yenan, communist “capital” roughly 425 miles to the southwest, was not directly menaced although national troops reportedly were in the Ian fen area — IOO miles southeast of Yenan — as they drove toward Yangku. Shansi province capital.
Other government forces drove against Kalgan from three directions and were pressing south-1 ward. A southward advance from 300 miles would permit a junction with troops in the Lanfen area, and isolate Yenan from Kal- j gan.
In Peiping, an American officer ! returned from a tour of both Red and government sectors of Manchuria to predict resumption of civil war there “before snow flies.”
BUSY WEEK HERE
i He recalled the Soviet Union had also agreed to these provis-; ions, despite Molotov’s statement Saturday that the Trieste asserr.-I blv should be all-powerful, and that “foreign troops” should evacuate the city 30 days after the | treaty is effective, j “The United Nations security I council has the primary responsibility to preserve and maintain ; the peace in the world,” Connally * said. "That is in harmony with ' our objective here.”
Must Be “Real State” Connally, who is chairman of j the U. S. Senate’s foreign relations committee, addressed the Italian political commission. He said Trieste must not be “merely a paper state.”
“It must be a real state, with 1 its own character, its own its own independence and its own dignity.
“The free territory must not be a satellite of Yugoslavia on one hand nor of Italy on the other. .Both Yugoslavia and Italv must accept our settlement in good faith.
“There must be no mental reservations,' he declared, glancing around the table as if to warn both nations.
The senator made no reference to the controversy arising from last week’s speech by secretary of commerce Wallace on American foreign policy. Instead, he demoted nearly all his speech tocom-I mi nt on the Trieste proposals made Saturday by Molotov and j echoed this morning by the Yugoslav deputy premier, Edvard K.*r-delj.
In an hour-long speech. Kar-delj declared western powers were attempting to “draw a heavy iron curtain around the Mediterranean sea.”
Europe Has Duty For Peace Connally asserted Europe. which had produced two world wars, must do its duty for peace.
“World peace.” he said, “is more important than a few' miles of territory or national pride.
The challenge to peace is here, right here on our doorstep, right here on this table. Trieste must not be another Danzig. It must be free from intrigue and conspiracy,”
Here Connally omitted a sentence from his prepared speech reading, “we cannot tolerate ar.-
