Flames were discovered at 7:48 a.m. and firemen fought the blaze for three hours. . City firemen, volunteers and even retired firemen battled flame* entrenched between walls and above a false celling In the Elks lodge. Fire Chief Ivan Ooff appealed to t.he Logan, Utah, 'fire department for help, A fire truck, six firemen and Logan's fire chief made the run. Since it was Sunday morning and rone of the business houses nor the upstairs Elks lodge were open in the two-story building, no one was hurt. Neither fire chief reported any Injured men. Lint Building Owner Frnnkllni county officials said owner of the property Is Spencer Ecclex; who manages the bank and the building. Total damage was estimated at $80,000 by T. R.

If a majority of the lawmakers In the two houses can quickly reach an agreement as to what should be done on welfare the ses- aion should be comparatively brief. But among individual members there is a wide diversity ,of opinion, ranging all the way from a return to the system in effect before the 1947 act became effective to a tightening up of the 'present law.

Toy Arrow Flies Into Keyhole, Hits Tot's Eye TELL CITY, Ind., March 7 (CTPS) — A dried weed stalk lined u.s an arrow by a group of children playing Indians traveled through the keyhole of a closed door to destroy the right eye of u child, 5, sitting Inside his home hero Saturday. Dr. Nicholas A. James, who removed the eye in an operation after the accident, said Earl Scnn was the victim of the freakish mischance. The keyhole was slightly larger than the diameter of the stalk, which apparently sailed through the aperture In level flight, he said. All windows of the house were closed. • Earl's brothers and neighbor- Ing children were playing in the front yard with bows improvised from small 'tree branches and were using weed stalks for arrows. said.

Maw's special session call, "but came to no conclusions," "Wo couldn't go Into other, matters which might come before the session because we don't know what the governor's message, to be delivered Monday, will contain,"; he ...... party chairman said the Republican members agreed that only matters of "an emergency nature" should be presented- to the legislators at the special session, which Gov. Maw has said could be completed within a week. "There was a,definite feeling," 'Mr. Romnoy reported, "that all matters not of an emergency nature 1 should come before the next regular legislature," In both party ranks there was general agreement that the legislators will be asked to consider a number of problems In addition to the welfare Issue, What these matters are will be disclosed in the- governor's message. After dining with their senate associates, Republican house members met separately for what Mr. Romney described as "a discussion of organizational matters'," than a simple proposition of granting or turning, down an additional appropriation to carry the department through the remainder of the biennium. The welfare department has recommended several changes in the law, the legislative council has recommended two, and some individual legislators are preparing bills- dealing with such issues as relative responsibility and liens. Maw May Speak Gov. Maw, who has always taken 41 special interest In public welfare law and administration, can reasonably be expected to advance proposals for substantial changes in the law. And unless many lawmakers have changed their minds since 1917 regular session, some of the proposals will be highly -controversial, Asldo from welfare, the subject most likely to be time-consuming Is permissive legislation to authorize local units of government to participate in federal aid veterans' housing programs.

High seas pounded the motor- ship Norfolk nprpund on a sandbar outside treacherous Beaufort inlet. Signal flares kept the sailors .aware that coast guard boats were standing by in the event the ship broke up during the night. In distress and seeking to make harbor, the Norfolk attempted to make her way through the inlet without a pilot when the pilot boat was badly battered and one man was hurt in attempting to put a pilot aboard. .

Harry S Truman, refuse re- nomination for the 1948 campaign, Truman is not the Issue, Wallace told 2000 delegates attending Pennsylvania's first Progressive oarty convention. "The doctrine which carries his name Is an issue," Wallace said, "and it was in the plans of the men who are running the government long before they told Harry Truman about it. "The Truman 'ddctrlne calls for military advice and economic aid to countries'fighting communism. Greece and Turkey are two nations already receiving U, S. assist- ,ce. -. • . 'Plans Won't. Change* "Those men and their plans won't be 'changed by the simple substitution ot another iservant of the same Interest," he insisted. The convention adopted the name "Progressive party"—-first formal name given to the new po< lltical group. It was, often-referred to as the third party. Wallace himself, called it the "new" party. Delegates adopted an eight- point platform, It subscribed to practically. ali the views already expressed by Wallace, on foreign affairs and antiinflatioh policies at home. One of the planks called for abolition by congress of the-house committee on un-American activities. It called the committee a source "of much 'of the persecution of labor leaders and minority groups." Defends Dr. Condon Wallace, former vice president and twice a 'cabinet member, In his keynote address once again jumped to the defense of Dr, Edward U.i Condon; He -said in a. prepared address the house Committee on un-American activities is seeking- "to intimidate all scientists" in questioning the" loyalty of the director of "the National Bureau of, Standards, The sounding .board,;for Wallace's criticism was the'Pennsyl- vania convention of his yet unnamed third party. Wallace supporters seek to>'have the. former vice president's; name placed .on the Pennsylvania, ballot and hope to raise $1,000,000 for his campaign in the state. Said Wallace: "A million private citizens, all moved by some unexplained desire to dewtrdy our country, couldn't do as much damage to American freedom in a year as the Thomas committee did last week when it at- Lacked Dr. Condon." Frighten All Scientists The third party presidential candidate said the house committee headed by Rep. J. Parnell Thomas (R., N. J.) was "not concerned" about Dr. Condon, add- ng." "They were Interested In frightening all scientists into silence." Alluding to the Hollywood probe conducted by the committee late ast' year, Wallace told Keystone state delegates: "A small group of utterly unscrupulous men think . they have discovered that you can stifle freedom by slanders, lies, distortion and innuendoes." Wallace alsc -struck out at what i described as "the current attempt of big business to hamstring world recovery in order to increase already fantastic profits." Policies of big steel corporations are in the forefront of-this movement, Wallace, said. "The scramble which makes headlines . . . fades into Insignificance when they are compared with the swindle of the people by the steel trust," Wallace «ald.

Reds Disperse Radical Unit Meet of Finns HELSINKI. Finland, ' March 7 (UP) —Communists broke up a meeting of the tiny Radical,-party Sunday in the first .violence over the request of Premier Josef Stalin for ' a • Russian-Finnish treaty of mutual military aid. Prof. Ernesti Hentunen, 60-year- old leader of the Radicals, was addressing 5000 persons in the railroad station square in protest against the treaty when Communists forced their way to the platform and tried to assault him. $4,000,000 Seen Police, responding to Hcntunen's cries for help, recued him and arrested six of his attackers. Leftists in the crowd prevented police from capturing others. The incident was not regarded seriously from the political viewpoint because ot (.he extreme nature of Hentunen's views on all questions. It was rather an indication of the general tension, 3000 Follower* Hentunen has about 3000 followers. His party has no seat in parliament and he holds its only political post, member of' the Helsinki city council. However, his speeches attract big crowds who enjoy hearing his inflammatory statements, including attacks on the personal lives of political members. He has been embroiled with the police frequently. \ Hentunen was denouncing the Russian treaty proposal, amid shouts of appreciative laughter, when about 12 CommunUts leaped upon the platform and started to attack him, 'This is a fascist.meeting," one of. the Communists shouted. "We workers must break it up." police intervened and took Hentunen off In one of their cars. of military aid. . "De Gaulle to Power' De Gaulle, leader of the rally of the French.people (RPF), spok* for 35 minute* before a crowd ot 10,000 In the *un-drenched public, iquare here. The crowd was half that expected and the wartims leader looked tired. At the *nd of his speech there were * few. cries of "De Gaulle to power." De Gaulle described th* .Corn*. munlst coup in Czechoslovakia M "a grand flash of lightning . . . a warning to the French." "Our country ts menaced from the exterior by the expansion of an immense empire whose masters aim at world domination, is undermined from the interior by separatist* in the service of th*** foreigners and who . . . fetter *c- tiviiy, aggravate all crises, infaet all wound* iJid prepare their die* tatorahip," D* Gaulle said.

"It is necessary that tittn formed *mons;lUM : fm state*:«« Europe an economic; diplomatic 'and. strategic grouping, joining their productions, their monies, their exterior actions and their means of defense. • . "This ensemble-which could include 250,000,000 men; considerable and often complementary resources; intellectual, spiritual, moral and social values of eminent nature; completed overseas by attached or associated territories and including everywhere innumerable influence*, would revive th«chance of the old world."

'It is necccsary that the effort of old Europe and that;of America be joined to put our poor world back oh its feet again," the general said. •This signifies without. any. doubt the United Sttaes should accord us extensive, and prolonged aid In the economic order.
