Page two Union 'Goons' | Flood Threat Believed About Over Wreck Two Factories Kalnmnzoo. Mich.. Dec. 1 — !ffi ~~ In a commando-like raid, about *0 invaders broke into two strikebound factoies of the Shakosppare companies hero today wrecked c<iuinmen! and parked cars, injured several workmen and then jlcq. Police. Chief Howard Hoyt tunned the raiders "union goons'." _ Seine CO non-striking workers re' t ''T,^ to leave the pla'nts after the raid, professing alarm at milling pi fleets outside the gates. Gov. Kim Sigler and his stale pence commissioner, Donald S. Leonard, immediately flew to the Scene for a conference with Kala- rna-'oo officials. "We don't want any recurrence of this situation and we want to _take steps to see that none occurs " fcigler 1old newsmen. Chief Hoyt, at the height of the raid, asked Sigler for national guard aid. He withdrew the appeal, however, when the invaders departed from the scene as rapidly as thev had arrived. Several workers were taken to hospitals with injuries, but police said none was seriously hurt Glenn E. Signam, a CIO United hlecl worcrs representative ' in Charge of the strike at the two bnakespeare plants, charged the company with "importing outside strike breakers." He did not explain the connection between his charge and today's disturbance. • Several non-strikers in the two plants were injured. Police said two were "badly hurt."

There if a colorful display of brilliant hues i as the flame:; liicker on the hearth, i . explains Lorraine Black wood, ! i home demonstration agent. This exhibition of color is ob| tamed by fixing inexpensive' c-h"in- |icals to the cones. Many of thcsr i chemicals can b<j obtained I'rom | no coiner drug store or the local paint shop. Only a few '.-hemicais are needed. Select any three or lour o( the preferred colors that are least expensive listed below: Fled flames, strontium chloride; green, borux, boric acid and barium chloride: purple. lithium chloride; blue, copped oxide; yellow, sodium chloride (common salt); orange, calcium chloride- lavender, potassium chloridf. and greenish blue to purple, copper sulphate and copp-r chloride. Cones of any pine, spruce, or fir may be treated to produce lhe.se colored flames, Mrs. Blackwood explains. Cones should be thoroughly i dry. I'hey should not be too old and non-deteuoraled for best results. Well-dried husks of nuts may also be trealed with color-proclticting chemicals with good results. It cones or nut husks are not available, fair results may bo obtained by treating dry chips, small slicks, or corncobs. The chemical salts should be ground or pulverized as finely as possible and fuel material must be thoroughly dry before treating. Quick drying varnish or shellac, welled paraffin wax, discarded wax from jars of home canned preserves, or ends of burned candles may be used to fix the chemicals to the cones. Thoroughly mix four to six ounces of the various chemical salts with about a half pint of varnish or shellac, or a half pound ot wax. This will produce suflicient liquid to treat about a bushel of cones. The proportions ma" be altered to suit the taste of the worker. Melt the wax over direct low heat in any discarded tin can or other container. Stir chemical mixture into liquid. Set container of mixture in pan of hot water while working with it, as the wax will soon harden and will not re-melt at ordinary temperature, Mrs. Black- ood cautions. Several methods may be used to apply the mixture of chemicals and shellac, varnish or wax the cones. Where a small number arc to be treated, the liquids may be conveniently painted on with a small brush. If larger quantities are to be treated, the liquid mixture may be sprinkler. An old-fashioned nand broom will make a very good sprinkled. An old-fashioned hand flower sprinkler is also convenient to use in applying the liquid, she states. The treated cones make nice Christmas gifts for owners of open fireplaces. Onion bags dyed to cover unattractive lettering and tied with gay colored ribbon or painted grope baskets with handle decorations arc two packaging suggestions.

As she stepped from the plane, Madame Chiang was greeted first by Ambassador Koo and by Dr. H. H. K Kung, former Chinese prime minister who is her brother- in-law. Then she was welcomed by Mrs. Marshall. They exchanged greetings and almost immediately drove away, accompanied by Stanley Woodward, chief of protocol i for the White House and state de-1 part men t. Marshall now is in Walter Reed hospital for a physical checkup. State department officials predict be will be away from his office at least several days. What effect ihis may have on MyJaivu; Chiang's plans was not inunediately known. So far no time has been set for conferences witli either Marshall or President Truman. While American officials undoubtedly will show Madame Chiang every courtesy due the wife of a nation's leader, behind their smiling welcome they are not too happy about the visit. They expect Madame Chiang not only to appeal to government officials for aid, but also to try to stir i up greater popular interest in the j Inine.Ke cause. | Her mission comes at a time when Mr. Truman and Marshall i apparently have concluded that I Liny aid which would involve this I country deeply in the Chinese war ] is out ot the question.

Nationalist leaders nevertheless are not discouraged, and they continue to fight against the Communists as they did against the Japanese. They believe they can hold the area south of the Yangtze river indefinitely, but they admit an immediate and urgent need for America munitions and other supplies. They do not expect American troops, but hope for munitions from the nearest American supplies in the Pacific. 3. China would welcome appointment of MacArthur or some other leading American military man as supreme military adviser and would give him the fullest cooperation. "The mere announcement that MacArthur had been appointed would turn the tide" against ommunism in China, one high I source said, expressing the view I that MacArthur has ideal qualifications because of his long experience in Asia and his great prestige in the Far East. 4. The Chinese want to know quickly whether the United States is prepared to give them any additional assistance and, if so, on what terms. They are prepared to agree to almost any conditions. 5. The Chinese feel that they are fighting to save all Asia, an:l not China alone, from onrushing Communism. They feel that the United States own interests demand that Washington act now. If the Communists consolidate their control lin Asia in cooperation with Russia while the United States is devoting its major effort to Europe, then Asia will be lost to the democratic world, one high source said. 6. The highest Chinese leaders would welcome a "Marshall Plan for Asia" and a coordinated American policy toward all Asictic countries, in which aid to China would be planned and allotted as part of an overall plan to all Asiatic nations including Japan. In this connection, they feel that MacArthur has done "a magnificent job" in Japan, and has shown the administrative abilities needed for an "all Asia reconstruction program." These leaders emphasize that Americans could not be expected to "bankrupt themselves ' to aid China, and they feel the sums needed for such a program would be small compared to those already given to Britain and allocated for the European recovery program. 7. Chinese leaders feel that onr of the greatest dangers to the No- tionalist government is 'Communist-inspired" propaganda exaggerating alleged government reverses and claiming Communist victories in an effort to create defeatism in the area south of the Yangtze. Western Europe's Terrific Fog is Proving More Cost!y Than Average Man Suspects By DEWITT MACKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Western Europe's terrific fog (I refer to nature's phenomenon and not to the international situation) gives us a chance to slip away in the mist for a rest from the war of the isms which continues to run true to form. This fog has assumed propor- jtions approaching catastrophe. It has reached from the Baltic down to Portugal and in places has taken on the fearsome character of a London pea-souper. There has been wholesale stoppage of shipping, aerial transportation and motor traffic. Even the Allied Ber- llin airlift, which is the lifeline for 'the western part of the German j capital, had to cease operations. The monetary loss all told is colossal. You never have seen a fog until you encounter one of London's pea soup variety. It's brutal. It gets so thick you can't sec your hand in front of your face. Vehicular traffic pulls up to the curb and stays there until the fog lightens. Motorists sleep in their cars. The only people who can move about on foot are the blind, who are used to perpetual darkness. A friend of mine in London who got lost in a fog encountered a blind man who led him a mile home. . Apropos of the blind, an American I ;knew in London had a peculiar experience. He got caught ;in a medium pea-souper when he (was in his cups. He was carrying a cane, and as he moved slowly along the virtually deserted sidewalk he was tapping the concrete with his stick. Suddenly he heard an echoing tap. Our Yank, being in a peculair .mood, figured somebody was try- ling to imitate him and he got mad. So when the two met, the irate one landed a haymaker which knocked the other chap down. There was a rattling, of coins and a tin cup on the sidewalk. The man who was down was a blind beggar. Happily no damage was done and the aggressor made full amends in terms of cash. Protracted fogs, like the current Heavy Fog Daily Bread Continued From Page One has assumed from the start that it could only deal with the Arabs. Now, as the result of almost open hostility toward Israel, that assumption is probably correct Meanwhile, U. S. policy has been so unstable that it is impossible to say just where our government stands today. We have pushed through partition, swiftly repudiated it, and as swiftly granted the Israeli government de facto recognition. We have flirted with' -the idea of backing Britain on sanctions, then returned to the original partition plan. It seems about time that this government resume the leadership which it showed in putting through partition and try to settle the war in Palestnie. For by all accounts it can be settled. Jews and Arabs, in independent talks, apparently have made progress toward agreement. The UN at present seems to be contributing more confusion than firm guidance in the matter. The war in Palestine can be settled, but not alone on British terms. There are considerations of justice and political morality that weigh just as heavily-in the interest of world peace as Britain's position in the Near East. It is time for a settlement that will not make a mockery of the UN decision, or of the Jews' brave fight to carry it out in spite of unnecessary odds. Northwestern Montana has 250 glacier-fed lakes. plr.gue. are hard to endure. They make eyes smart and heads ache. After a day or two you develop stomach pains which last until the fog lifts. Throats and lungs got raw. Of course it is the ships at sea and the ships ot the air which are the worst sufferers in widespread i fog. Their danger is very great, and their skippers—especially of passenger liners—are under a terrific strain. 1 saw a striking illustration of this while crossing the Atlantic with the famous Captain George Fried when he was commanding the S. S. America. There was a dense fog and Cap tain Fried had been in the bridge of his crowded ship for a straight 24 hours, as I recall it, when final ly the blanket lifted and he was able to go below. I happened along by his cabin just as he arrived, •absolutely fagged out. He peeled 'off his tunic and threw himself down on the edge of his bed to take off his shoes. He had barely shed them when "boom" went that fog horn. "Damn!" exploded Fried, and had his shoes back on before the first blast of the horn died off. A second later he was out the door and heading for the bridge. I looked down the corridor and there was Chief Mate Robert Miller run ning like a fireman to reach the bridge, and he was pulling on his tunic as he ran. These two men were heroes of the historic rescue of the crew from the sinking freighter Antinoe during an Atlan tic storm—heroes of other rescues, for that matter —and they felt their responsibility keenly. Small wander that the huge luxury liner Queen Elizabeth re fused to venture onto the high seas from her berth in Southampton, although she already was far be hind schedule because of a strike and was piling up heavy costs i through the delay. She wouldn't •risk her precious human freight in that pea souper. You really haven't lived a full life until you go through a Londor fog. I thoroughly recommend the experinence—for just once.

TAN • OXBLOOD in Europe London, Dec. 1 — UP) —The heaviest fog in a generation blanketed Western Europe for the fifth consecutive day today. Traffic hazards and accidents in a dozen mist-swatched countries increased hourly. Planes were grounded and bus, train and streetcar schedules disrupted. Southampton was an exception however. The fog lifted and sunlight gleamed through the clouds. The British liners Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary and Aquilania, seized the opportunity to quit the dor-ks for voyages to America. The two queens are going to New York, with stops at Cherbourg, Franco, where each will pick up an additional 1 GOD passengers. There were 2.S90 passen- pers aboard the sister ships when | they left England. The Queen Mary was a week behind schedule. The Queen Elizabeth slipped out on the tide for New York 14 days behind schedule. Sixteen hundred passengers who had been abdard since Nov. 20 lined the rails, cheering and singing. The giant luxury liner first was delayed because her crew refused to ship out while the American longshoremen's strike was on. Then the fog kept her berthed at Southampton, The Aquitania set sail for Halifax after a one-day delay. Elsewhere in Britain, the fog hung over cities and countryside. Conditions in the London area were described as chaotic. Members of parlilament bedded down in House or" Commons. Railroad stations were jajnmed with thousanHs of stranded travelers and commuters. A crew of London firemen ran in relays for a mile to ijuide their engine to a blaze in a bomb-damaged building. | ! The Berlin airlilft still \vas ' j grounded.
