An Arab attempt to force the assembly \jn consider the termination of the British mandate and immediatn independence f°r Palcstine was dclcatcd by the com- inillr-e. 8 to one. Assembly President Oswaldo Aranha of Brazil Iricd to settle bolh Jamali and Kl-Khouri, accusing them of goinu far outside the discussion of Ihe agenda ill their speeches. Viitc Is Decisive With a decisiveness thai assured a similar ruling in Ihc full assembly, the powerful slcerhiK committee voted eight lo one shortly before midnight nt<ainst Ihe Arab campaign to mnkc thc assemplv discuss termination of Brllain's mandate nnd a flcclaralion of independence for the Holy Land- The commitlee urged the assembly to limit itself to -.Brl.lajn's one pro,- i posal forin'ntlon of a Palestine ' fact-finding committee. Like the Arab proposal, the bids of Ihc Jewish Agency mul Ihc les- srr-knou'ii Hebrew committee ol national liberation for voices in Ihc current Palestine debate seemed destined for rejection. The United Stales and Britain have campaigned against giving any non-govcrmcnta! agency a part in the assembly debate on the Holy L-itid. However, American Deputy Delegate Her- schcl V.

Syria chipped in a compromise offer that the assembly could debate independence for Palestine without necessarily taking a decision on it this session—but Die Arabs would not put it on paper.

Reports this morning slated it was too early lo know the extent of their injuries although nil three are said to be tu serious condition. Many reports of property damage were received but few could be confirmed ns telephone lines suffered extensive daniage in this area and IOIIR distance calls could be placed only lo Memphis. Osceola nnd Little nock. Only two circuits remained in service to Memphis and Ihrec lo Osceola. Lines were down to St. Louis. , Paragonld, ' Joncsboro. and lo Steele, Carulh- etsville, Kennctl, in Missouri and l.i Lcachvillc and Manila to the West. Osccola's telephone service WAS also disrupted and Ions distance circuits lo Memphis. Wilson, and Kciser were reduced lo one for each of those paints with three to Uly- thcville. It was reported that it would be several hours before local .phones would be operating m Osrcola. Jcrrv Poc. Blytbeville manager of Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., said it was "hard to say" when line repairs would be completed, although work on them is underway. Velocity of the winds which hit this area early lodny were estimated variously at from 60 to 73 miles p?r hour. There arc no wind- ' recording instruments in this vicinity to measure actual velocities. Damage was general throughout Northe.isl Arkansas and Southeast Missouri, with repair cesls likely to run high. House and barn roofs were lorn off. plale glass windows broken, signs blown down and trees uprooted. Many buildings were rc- IKirtcd demolished. Hardest hit were Southeast Missouri areas and Osceola where damage wns reported in excess of that in Blythevllle. Osceola was reported to have suffered an estimated SCO.OOO damage. Schools Close at Cooler, Sletle Late reports show that the PciTi- iscot Comity towns and vicinities bore the brunt of the storm. Schools at Cooler anil Steele have been closed because of storm damage and the Blythcvillc Soybean Co. feed and seed warehouse at Holland, Mo., was smashed. An eye-witness.
