"Well, in just no time they were getting a wonderful crowd." Police Chief Jack Herman said, in describing the event Thursday night. "It beat everything the way the word got up and down the street. Those tires were just going like hotcakes when I got there." THE men were auctioning off the tires at S4 and $6 for automobiles and S8 and $12 for trucks. But when xhey saw Chief Herman come running up the street, they figured he was not a very promising customer. 'The sale is over for awhile," the chief auctioneer announced. "I'm going to breakfast." Then both of the salesmen tore out after breakfast, as if they were starving to death, with Chief Herman puffing right behind them, curious what i . the t One of the men who said he was a truck driver for the Tulsa street department was caught about a mile north of town by the chief and highway patrolman, Buck Cook.

Chief Herman said he imagined about 50 citizens had gone galloping home with the new bargains before he chopped down the Christmas tree. A bit sheepish, the citizens were trundling the tires back to the police station Thursday afternoon. The chief was sending out notices that they had better bring them back as he had already turned the case over to the FBI and he would sure hate for any of his constituents to get tossed into the federal hoosegow because of a mistaken impression that Roosevelt was just saying thanks to Oklahoma's Little Dixie. "Anyway, everybody sure was happy for awhile." the chief added. "We haven't had so much excitement in some time. It was quite a disappointment, the way it all ended." RAY PARR.

Michigan Joins Electoral Rush For Roosevelt Detroit Straightens Out Ballot Errors, Swings to Democrats DETROIT, Nov. 9. (JP) Michigan's 19 electoral college votes for president slipped precariously into the Democratic column Thursday night on the basis of unofficial returns from all but 16 of Michigan's 3,841 precincts. The correction of a nightmare of errors by inexperienced Wayne county (Detroit) election workers wiped out the slender lead previously held by Republican Thomas E. Dewey, a native of Michigan, and sent President Roosevelt into the lead by a margin of slightly more than 17,000 votes. The Wayne county board of canvassers, with a' staff of 80. conducted the recheck under watchful eyes of both Republican and Democratic observers and of John C. Lehr. United States district attorney, as it unraveled slowly the mistakes which workers at the polls had made. More to Be Rechecked Still to be conducted is a recheck of 13 Wayne county precincts, from which the official tally books are missing, while efforts were being made to locate the ballot boxes and tally books of three other precincts which simply had disappeared. Mrs. Marguerite Montgomery, chairman of the board of canvassers, said it might be necessary to count the votes in the 13 precincts if the tally books are not found in the ballot boxes which will be opened by the board Friday. Every outstate precinct for president had been tabulated unofficially. The 3.825 precincts counted of the state's total of 39.841. gave Roosevelt 1.097.581 votes, and Dewey 1,080,503. More Errors Possible In 1.367 of 1.383 precincts in Wayne county, Roosevelt amassed a vote of 543.962 to Dewey's 313,246. Mrs. Montgomery cautioned that "there still may be other major errors" in precincts not yet challenged and which may bob up as the Official canvass of the votes progresses in the next two or three weeks. , President Roosevelt's comeback, after having trailed through the early tabulations, was amazing. Dewey had piled up outstate a lead of 213.638 votes, which in anv normal year would have been sufficient to win. Wayne county, casting a record of nearly 860.000 votes however, gave the president a majority of nearly 231,000 in the returns as they now stand on the election workers' semi-official records. Wayne is a traditionally powerful stronghold of the Democratic party. Yet the Republican state ticket had swept the state by landslide margins, from top to bottom. WASHINGTON. Nov. 9.P) Late nationwide returns Thursday night gave the Democrats a strong working majority in the house and uninterrupted control of the senate. The role that the new congress win play In fashioning America's post-war programs for peace and war became the subject of major speculation. The returns assured the Democrats: A house membership of 241 and a margin of at least 49. with four races in Missouri and one each in New Jersey and Washington in doubt. A senate membership of at least 56 and a plurality over the Republicans of 16. with races in Nevada and Pennsylvania in doubt.

DO.V KOUIKSO.V (OkUhiMMifTimei Stilt Member on Military Leare, Now Editor of the 4h DlTltion Newt) 11TITH THE 45TH DIVISION IN FRANCE The Stars and " Stripes carried the story. It said that a big department store had issued instructions to its staff for V-Day. Wait on your customer, then get out and celebrate, were the instructions. Another story, brought by newspapers and radio, said New Yorlc merchants were boarding up the plate glass fronts in anticipation of the jubilant crowds that shortly would be celebrating the end of the war. Letters from home to men in the Thunderbird division are full of cheerful predictions that the boys will be home soon. And often the men hear that the war industry workers are leaving their jobs making tanks and planes and guns to take jobs with a peacetime future. "Whatever gave them the idea the war is over?" a dogface asked me. "What ara the correspondents writing home?" Up ahead the Germans had held our advance to a few yards a day, and every once in a while a determined German counter-attack wiped out several days' gains. The artillery barrages were the fiercest since The 45th was fighting in dense woods so dense and foggy and dark that one GI watched a man 40 yards away dig a foxhole and complete it over a period of half an hour before he could decide definitely the digger was a German. Then he shot him. THE Joe who wanted to know why civilians thought the war about over turned up his collar and rubbed his hands together. Then he told about two men hi the company who were killed last night. They had landed with the 45th in Sicily. They had been with us through Salerno, through the awful winter at Venafro probably as bad a winter campaign as an American has experienced since the days of Valley Forge. They'd been decorated at Anzio, and raced with the unit through France. Now. with the war "almost over" they had died last night. A few days before the company commander, a well-loved young lieutenant, had been taken away, his leg shattered. He'd never be back. Knowing only that they face a stubborn, determined and still well-equipped and well-fed foe. most of the men of the 45th feel that they will light a winter campaign, that victory probably will come in the spring. They dread this campaign, naturally, as they have dreaded every campaign in 16 months of fighting That doesn't affect their fighting ability. They're staying in there pitching and taking their chances. They feel it will be worse than the Vennfro winter of 1943-44. We're farther north, and stiU there are mountains. There will Oe snow. Advances will be through woods, where tanks cannot help, where booby traps are easily placed in the brush, and snipers can find perfect concealment. Men of the 45th look forward to Victory yes. But first they expect a winter campaign. And they wonder sometimes why American towns celebrate Victory each time a locomotive whistle sticks. Uruguay Calls For a League WASHINGTON. Nov. 9. The first official criticism of the Dumbarton Oaks world security plan by a small nation came Thursday from Uruguay, which proposed instead that the league of nations be revitalized. Uruguayan Ambassador Juan Carlos Blanco presented the proposal to the other American republic's at a meeting of Latin diplomats with Acting Secretary of State Stettinius. The session was the third to be held on the general subject of Dumbarton Oaks accom plishments. The first small nation to make an official answer to American-British-Russian-Chinese proposal for a peacetime united nations, Uruguay asserted it would be advantageous to conserve the old leaeue with reforms to strengthen its military, political and judicial power. If that Is impossible. Uruguay saia. men guarantees ior small nations should be incorporated in any new council to preserve world Urucuav. it was stated, "would con sider with the keenest sympathy," the inclusion of France on tne council.

(VP) Russian troops, in a new threat to besieged Budapest from the northeast, broke the German's middle Tlsza river line on a 40-mile front Thursday and advanced 17 miles beyond to within a mile of the vital Budapest-east Slovakian railway, Moscow announced Thursday nieht. The Soviet bulletin also said that the second Ukraine army had killed more than 100,000 Germans and Hungarians and had captured 42.160 for a total of 142,160 since October 6 when the invasion of Hungary began. Berlin implied that the Russians already had cut the Budapest-east Slovakian railway, a development wnicn mignt forge the Germans to begin a slow withdrawal into central Czechoslovakia. In a wide encircling move on Budapest other Soviet troops were reported by Berlin to have crossed the Danube river at Dunafoldvar. 43 miles south of the city whose reinforced defenders still are holding the Russians on the southern rim of the city. French radio reports said Russian units attacking in Budapest's outskirts had crossed the Danube and penetrated into the Buda district. U-Boat Toll Drops To Low for War WASHINGTON. Nov. 9. German submarine activity in October was materially lower than any other month of the war. an Anglo-American government statement said Thursday night.

A euard was placed on the jeep and that night another Canadian, dressed as a United States officer, and an American dressed as a staff sergeant came to get it. Arrested, they tried to shoot their way out, but were overpowered. Then fellow gangsters appeared at the hospital attired as military policemen in an effort to , "spring" the nrlsoners. but police scarea tnem on.

Unbridled Flow Of News Vital," AP Head Says Kent Cooper Calls For More Freedom, As a Peace Measure NEW YORK, Nov. 9.ffl A positive program with adequate enforcement machinery to assure unfettered flow of news and information around the world is urged by Kent Cooper, executive director of The Associated Press, in an article in the cur rent issue of Life magazine. The article describes the former world news monopoly of the European news agencies, and the controlled press of the totalitarian countries, and asserts the aggressor countries could not have driven their people to war without systematic perversion of the news. "A heavy duty rests upon the allied peoples." Cooper concludes. "If they are not convinced that the adoption of free-news principles is their sponslbility. then once again, the next war is their war." British Action Soujhl Cooper cites the recent action of congress in unanimously indorsing the idea of worldwide freedom of news and suggests that if the British parlia ment followed the example of congress It would "help enormously mote the unhampered flow of free news. He writes that the peace negotia tions, "on the positive side," should guarantee "equal access to herever it occurs or wherever it is disclosed. On the negative side there should be two provisions: one that forbids international transmission oi propaganda from one country to another; and a second that forbids peacetime censorship in any form. "And in no country should there be preferential transmission rates, whether by radio or telegraph or telephone: for lt is as easy to stop news at its sources by putting prohibitive s on wordage as by outright cen sorship. It is obvious that radio news involves similar problems mat wiu re quire similar answers." Immunities Urged To enforce the plan. Cooper writes "one important step would be to give diplomatic immunities to news correspondents working abroad independently, however, of any diplomatic missions. These Immunities would mean. In effect, the right to report news without hindrance and protection against being expelled should a correspondent become persona non grata except by the officials of his own country. Besides this, each correspondent should be guaranteed access to all the governmental news that the foreign spTpermen: and 'Each correspon dent should have equal chance to transmit his copy."
