Harry Michalski, 43, of suburban Hamtramck, was killed when he was struck on the head by a 200-pound slab of concrete while working at Chrysler's De- troit forge plant. His 12 injured i jn the area were torn off and lellow-workers were treated at the plant's first aid station. The plant's roof was ripped off and c o n c r e te slabs and pieces of glass showered down on 75 men inside. Several trucks in the factory's transportation yard were tossed about, overturned and twisted. Residents of the small area hit by the wind said it was accompanied by a roar and a flash of lightning. There were no re- seconds later and ports of any tornado funnels in ' in the front vard the area. NOT A TORNADO U. S. weather bureau spokesmen at the nearby Detroit City airport said the highest velocity recorded there was 32 m. p. h. Meteorologists said the force was caused by a sudden shift in air pressure. The gusts of wind were preceded by a brief lull. The weather station's wind gauge was near an airplane which was lifted from its moorings and dashed against a nearby fence. Weal her officials denied that there had been a tornado. The wand, which came from the west at about 6 p. m., was accompanied by rain and snow flurries. plate glass windows were brown from a number of store fronts. Witnesses said one unidentified man was picked up and hurled a short distance while crossing an intersection. Mrs. William E. Jordan told police she rushed to the basement with her daughters, Patricia, 5, and 7-year-old Nettie, when she heard the roar. The home's porch was blown away a large tree was snapped off at its base. CAR OVERTURNED There also were reports of at least one car being overturned and a garage being blown away. Among the most seriously injured of the Chrysler workers were Millard Kent, who suffered fractures of both arms, and Robert Reese who was treated for severe head injuries. One residential block was without power after utility lines were snapped by falling trees. p& lfJW8aa 1111 "" ''r7lZZij$$e 1 '''' V ' ' Guns Blaze At Youths Teen-Agers Are Targets Of Detroit Lads, Caught After Attack NEW IDEA M.

DeClercq, 19, of 4604 Lansing rd., Lansing, was found guilty by a municipal court jury Tuesday, following his trial on a charge of driving an automobile while his operator's license was revoked. Judge Angus MacLeod sentenced him to a 20-day term in the Eaton county jail, 18 days to be suspended upon payment of S50.90 fine and court costs. DeClercq appealed the con viction to circuit court and was released after furnishing a $100 bail bond. He was arrested last Aug. 8 on US-27 in Delta township by state police officers. James E.

Rapids Man's Idea Is Adopted (Special to The State Journal) EATON RAPIDS, Nov. 21 A new red and cream colored am bulance has been delivered to M. R. Pettit after a country wide showing. Pettit's idea of using a standard station wagon with a 6-inch higher top for added headroom is now a reality. The new "Briarean" line is manufactured by Chrysler. The conversion features, suggested by Mr. Pettit are supplied by the Eaton Rapids plant of Allied Products corporation. "The idea started," Mr. Pettit said, because our funeral cars and ambulances are special built and I reasoned that a converted station wagon that met our needs would solve production and cost problems." Mr. Pettit discussed his ideas with the Allied personnel and after much study and engineering the conversion details were worked out. In addition to the higher top, an arrangement was made to split the back seat of the station wagon to provide an attendant's seat beside the patient. An auxiliary panel and special wiring to control flasher beacons, tunnel lights and sirens were also added. The conversion plan has been completed so that a mortician's car may be ordered from a regular dealer with the buyer's own specifications, and converted back to a station wagon should a buyer so desire.
