-TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, .1918 Ptfone 4600 for a WANT AJD Taker. Seven Accused As Terrorists In Dixie Town TARLTON. Tenn. — W) — Seven men have been arrested in connection with a "reign of terror" by hooded night-riders and a series of fires. Sheriff Jim Meete said today. The sheriff said the arrests- apparently had ended the trouble which has kept Tarlton citizens -uneasy for months. The hooded riders • • -were not connected with- the Ku '„ Klux Klan. he said. • - Deputy State Fire Marshal Kirk Webb, who worked with Meeks and . Assistant District Attorney General . A. F. Sloan in the investigation, said •- - ."there if every indication the reign " * of terror is ended now." • - The probe .was started, Sloan said, -'• ' after the barn of Herman Hobbs, ' ; ' foreman of the grand jury, was de; : gtroyed by fire last winter. The grand jury had been investigating ; ' Illegal liquor traffic in the county. . • • Later, the home of Easton Brown, '. . who had testified before the grand • • Jury, was set- ablaze, and another wan who appeared before the grand Jury was threatened, 'Slor -. reported. Other fires destroyed or damaged two stores and the Tarlton school. ! The terrorists were not members of any organized night-riding outfit . " but' merely -used "crude home-made ' hoods" to hide their identity, Sloan . laid. /• The Assistant District Attorney General said two of the men arc ; charged with arson -and making threats while under disguise, one . : with arson, and three with making ; threats while -under disguise. '.. Sloan said additional charges will ' be filed later against the seventh ' man, now in jail sen-ing a sentence for a liquor violation.- The six other* are free under • • bonds ranging from $1,000 to-|10,000.

Then, (take a deep breath 1 ), there also were empanditas stuffed with meat, asparagus in French dressing, chicken salad, salad of tender turnips* "Mayaland" fruit salad, mash- black peas (the twice-fried kind), crisp' tortillas, Spanish fried potatoes, Holland cheese, fresh sliced pineapple and bananas... Also (still with me?) there were assorted crackers, gu&va and mem- brillo paste, "Mayaland" golden •tar. (a crisp, fine-textured, doughnut-like pastry), individual assorted cakes and coconut ice creoml To wash down 'these assorted Tiands, there was iced tea, .coffee, beer or coca-cola, depending on the Individual's desire, and all through the-meal, the Mayaland musicians played and sang Mexican songs from the balcony overlooking the dining room ... Actually, there were many additional dishes, but I can't remember them at the moment. Anyhow, that that gives you an Idea. .'. _"Z3?P.' to' that' burdened table scur- ' rled a score or more of lean and hungry newspapermen, nostrils dls- ! tended, eyes alight, practically drooling. You've seldom seen a more famished-looking pack. Two hours later, the glassy-eyed crowd staggered to its-feet, pushed Its bulging bay-windows, ahead of it and waddled out the door. Since we had to return to Merida that afternoon, it was necessary to pack, and seldom have men suffered more, '. trying to bend over to reach a. pair ; of socks or a dirty shirt on the floor. '• Somehow we made It, but I, for one, fell sound asleep in the car as soon as I said-farewell to Fernando ' ... -and so—I learned later—did almost every other person who partook of that Yucatectin buffet luncheon ...

On the grim,- gray • Sunday- following the Donora deaths, .the .entire Monong'ahela Valley was ihrouded in smog—a combination of Cog and smoke. Most of it was black and impenetrable. Only Pittsburgh offered contrast. James S. Lau, superintendent of the Charleroi-Monessen Hospital which cared for many of the Donora victims, .told of traveling to Pittsburgh for*oxygen. He declared: "It was like'coming onto an island from a sea of smog • as I reached Pleasant Hills (sis miles from Pittsburgh)." The first question after the Donora disaster was "could it happen here?" Dr. Ely says no. ' He explained: ,_^ "In 1 the first place, we do not have stacks, smelting zinc ors. Suppose we assume that sulphur was" the cause. It isntrue that coal contains sulphur, and in burning gives off sulphur dioxide but the sulphur in the average coal is about one per cent only, . too small to do damage, especially as the burning is scattered over the large area of the whole of Pittsburgh and. not confined to a very, small radius as in Donaro." • - : . We have cleaned up mors than 60 per cent of the smoke which used to exist in Pittsburgh's atmosphere. Condensation nuclei of this type are-very much less. This means dirt in the fogs, which might well carry infections or poisons of- one kind or another.".' Pittsburgh has reaped .benefits from ' a health standpoint, as- the result of smoke control. • Dr. I. Hope - Alexander, .' City Health Director, reports: "We have had quite a .drop in tht number of-persons suffering upper respiratory diseases and: considerably less pneumonia since-the smoke ordinances--wen^ .into full operation." .'. , • '..'•-.•'• Sinus sufferers, also note th« aiT- ference. •• UN Support (Continued from P»fe rj She is one of the chief creators of the Declaration of Human Rights which has just been completed after two and a half, years of -labor.

Largest Airline Merger Proposed NEW YORK—(^P)—Pan American World Airways and American Overseas*- Airline); have agreed to the biggest merger in American commercial aviation. Plans for consolidation of American Overseass' routes to eleven countries in Europe wlthsPan American's ' trans-Atlantic services were announced by both companies last night. Routes and assets of American Overseas Airlines would go to Pan American in exchange for Pan American stock.. After this stock was distributed, American Overseas Airlines would be .dissolved. The merger agreement is subject to approval by the stockholders of both concerns and. the Civil Aeronautics Board. Pan American World Airways is the largest international air carrier, and American Overseas Airlines is a subsidiary of American Airlines, the nation's largest domestic carrier. . The merger would leave only one other TJ.S.-flac line operating trans-Atlantic air service—Howard Hughes' Trans World Airline. Miner Holiday (Continued from Ptgt i) , The industry ii' counting on two factors to. restrain Lewis .from any possible- move to curb production and thereby reduce the extraordinarily large stockpile. One is that any interruption of work would mem a loss of the 20 cent a ton' royalty which goes to the United Mine Workers'-welfare fund.' That is Lewis' special interest at the moment. Hell get about $100,000,000 'for « in the current contract year. ' ' • " The whole applecart 1 could be upset, however; by. » ruling that the welfare fund' can be taxed. There have been several conferences since election day with Internal Revenue Bureau-officials-stalks which have given some industry officials a. bad case of jitters. But union representatives insist the meetings have been held solely to discuss the form to be used in making returns—on the assumption that the 20 cent payment and' the fund itself are both tax free. . The second factor is that a strike of any sort would certainly affect Congressional reaction to President Truman's pledge-to seek rspeal of the Taft-Hartley Act. •Lewis will scarcely -be able to ignore the role Ke plays in the success or failure of labor' union demands that the act be repealed. Greek Forces (Continued from Ptge z) blown up and •! barricades were thrown across streets. Machmegun emplacements were set -up, obviously in preparation against government attempts to send reinforcements. Several buildings were fired. Reinforcements arrived soon, however, and stemmed the ferocity of the guerrilla attack. The government troops- brought up armored trucks and tanks, shattered the Communist barricades and dislodged guerrillas from : their prepared positions. Reds' Invasion Of Costa Rica Brings Appeal WASHINGTON-^)—Costa Rica's appeal under the Rio pact for inter- American help to repel an armed invasion went . before 21 western ' hemisphere foreign ministers today. Neighboring Nicaragua was formally accused of providing the springboard for the Communist supported attack by between.200 'and 1,000 men.
