Ada Weekly News (Newspaper) - June 28, 1934, Ada, Oklahoma THE ADA WEEKLY NEWS VOLUME XXXIVADA, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1934 NUMBER 13 Miss Jessie Collette, Employe, Released by Robbers at Edge of Town OCCURRED AT 2:30 Employes, Customers Forced to Lie on Floor Ac Man Scoops Up Money Marland and Anglin Lead First Count Straw Vote Taken in Ada Joining approximately 40 other newspapers in taking a straw vote on the governor’s race, The New* is today conducting the straw vote in Ada. Frankly, the vote is not large enough to be worth much if anything. It does not represent the right proportions the business men, the women, the farmers, the laborers, the professional men. It is interesting, and that is about all lh**re is to it. Three of the office force started out this morning, asking a1! the men and women they sav; how they stood on the democratic candidates for governor. Most of them were willing to cast their votes, but some were not. This unrevealed vote is to be considered, but one’s guess is as good as another how it will go. The farmers and laboring men were busy in the fields and in the shops and other places, and therefore the vote is rather pre- ILI Mine in the name ponderately from the business ed of the following: business he three employes Jprofessional group. Not women 46, housewives 30. lers who were in i (Frnni MftnAvj'* Dailf) Two men early this afternoon robbed the First National hank of Stratford of an amount of money as yet undetermined, escaping northward on State Highway 18. The men drove up to the hank about 2:30 o’clock in a two-door Pontiac sedan. One of them remained in the car while the other got out, came in the hank held a gun on t and twro customer the hank at the time and scooped; up money that was loose in the| trays. When the bandit left, he fore-j ed all but Miss Jessie Collette, j one of the employes, to lie on, the floor while he went about the robbery. When the bandit left, he forced J    .......... Miss Collette to accompany him Candidates Spurred to Greater and his companion. She was re-, leased unharmed at the edge of the town. Officials of the hank quickly notified officers in surrounding J communities and the pursuit was enough women were interviewed, hut even the society reporter did not have nerve, enough to call a woman over the telephone and ask her whom she favors for governor. So here the vote is below. Believe it represents the comparative strength of the eandidftes or not just as it suits you. It is given simply as a means of entertaining you and you eau draw your own conclusions. The vote up to 2 o’clock this afternoon was Marland 241, Anglin 137, Walton 78, Burns 7, King 3. Smith 6, Newman 2. A few' more citizens will be seen this afternoon before 5 o’clock, when the poll will close. The results of the staw votes in tin* other towns w’ill be given Thursday or Friday. Classified according to their work the men seen w'ere divided as follows:    business men 16*s.

It provides that major oil companies purchase from ^ast Texas refiners their surplus gasoline stocks. These have been accumulating to such an extent through crude over production that oil and gasoline price levels have threatened. A stipulation requires refiners to run no oil produced in excess of quotas under the oil code.

NEWTON, Tex., June 23.—LP> A young white man was still held iii jail here toc^y as an investigation proceeded into the lynching of John Griggs, 30-year-old negro, near Newton Wednesday night. No charges had been filed and Hollis Kinard. district attorney, said in Beaumont that, on the basis of information he had, only a misdemeanor accusation could be lodged against him. Arrested Wednesday night, he was held as the escort of a girl w'lio allegedly was attacked by the negro. A mob of 150 men and women took Griggs from officers who were taking him to Orange for safekeeping, hanged him to a tree, shot him, cut down the body and then dragged it about the county behind an automobile.
