(AP) Much of Carswell Air Force Base w a s twisted wreckage Tuesday after a windstorm took a multi-million-dol'lar swipe at America's long-range aerial striking power. One three-million - dollar B-36 bomber was destroyed, six others received major damage and several others were damaged to an undetermined extent Two airmen were slightly injured. A civilian, Mrs. W. C. Conner, 44, was killed when her automobile was struck by a sign board blown down by the storm and 10 other civilians in the vicinity were reported hurt Capt. Burton Wilder, base public information officer, said several buildings suffered "severe damage" when the winds struck shortly before dark. I Maj. Gen. Samuel E. Anderson,! commanding general of the Eighth Air Force, estimated damage toj planes at the base at 25 per cent. Anderson's estimate scaled down & former estimate of 80 per cent. The B-36, which has been called] America's "atom bomb carrier," | is the air force's largest, longest- ranging bomber in service and was designed to carry 10,000 pounds of bombs on a 10,000-mile mission. Also damaged as the 90-mile per hour winds struck the vicinity was the plant of Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corp. which manufactures the huge six-engined intercontinental B-36s. Aircraft plant officials said power was disrupted and extensive damage done to service docks at which the big planes are serviced.

They recall that it has been attempted many times, most recently in 1949, and has invariably failed. Both Gov. Adlai Stevenson,! Democratic presidential candidate and Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge (R- Mass), a booster for Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Republican nominee, have pointed up the filibuster issue during the current campaign. A filibuster is simply a protracted debate or talk to prevent a John Seitz DiedYesterday At St. John's John Seitz. 75. prominent businessman and a former mayor of Leavemvorth, died last night at St. John's Hospital where he has been a patient at various times for the last several months and where he underwent major operations.- He last entered the hospital several vote on a controversial issue. Under a long respected tradition of unlimited debate, Senate rules now make it virtually impossible to end a filibuster unless at least 64 senators—two thirds of the 96 —are willing to do this and stay on the job for long hours to accomplish it. Technically a test of cloture— or limiting debate to obtain a vote—can be obtained if 16 senators sign a petition. The difficulty comes in mustering enough senators to approve what opponents always call "a gag rule." Usually Southern . Democrats line up almost solidly against cloture and with the aid of 10 or 12 senators from other sections have enough votes—33 to block such attempts. Gov. Stevenson last week pledged -that as President he would use his influence "to get the Senate to change its rules President >ays Risks War Truman Says Republicans Play 'Gutter Polities' With Enslaved People ABOARD TRUMAN TRAIN (A P ) — President Truman openly accused the Eisenhower command Tuesday of increasing the risk of atomic war by "talking loosely about liberating the enslaved peoples of Eastern Europe."

And veterans agree that as few as eight senators could conduct s. ! permanent filibuster—that would , prevent action on any legislation —if they decided that was the only way to preserve present rules.

Eisenhower Tuesday called the Democratic administration a mess of corruption and scandal and demanded 'a wholesale clean-out of the political bosses in Washington." The Republican presidential nominee cut loose at the Truman regime in earnest for the first time in an address opening a. Dying Southern campaign tour. Thousands jammed the ten-mile route from the Municipal Airport to Hurt Park "in downtown Atlanta and they jammed Peachtree Street to give the Republican presidential nominee a hearty and warm greeting. Police Chief H. T. Jenkins estimated 100,000 had turned out to see Eisenhower on his first big bid to crack the Democratic Southland in the November presi- jdential election. Mayor William B. Hartsfield of Atlanta estimated, about 35,000 were piled into the little park outside the municipal auditorium with another 5,000 hanging from windows and roofs of nearby buildings. Eisenhower was welcomed of- jficially by Gov. Herman Talmadge, a Democrat often at odds with the national administration. :He told the throng "Georgia too long has been taken for granted." 'That is the reason," Talmadge continued "that our delegation had to submit to insults and ridicule from the Democratic National Convention." Eisenhower called corruption In government "an overriding moral issue in this campaign." "A 'refreshing' Is not what w» need," said Eisenhower. ''A face-lifting job won't do it either," ha added. "What the Washington mess must have it the full treatment."
