/ Nazi Bombers Obliterate COVENTRY, England, Nov. 15/(UP)—Squadron after squadron of German airplanes dive bombed this ancient industrial city for 10 and one half hours in an attack that ended early today, leaving at least J,000 casualties and wrecking the town as thoroughly as an earthquake. •Survivors of the Nazi air fury wandered through broken streets today and looked upon row after row of houses and buildings shattered to matchwood and rubble by the explosion of thousands of bombs. The history of this present day industrial center ot 167,000 population dates back to a medieval past, bright- enedby the famous ride of Lady Godiva, clad only in her golden hair. .; . Today it had joined the company of such targets of lite German air force as AVarsaw and Rotterdam. All night long the attack continued relentlessly: Literally thousands of high explosive bombs and incendiary missiles rained down upon hospitals, churches, hotels, theaters uanks, stores, offices, and block after block of homes, oi Coventry's thousands of factory workers and middle class families; It seemed that every'street in the city was bit bv bombs In some places the bombs had fallen so'thickly that,: it' was almost impossible to tell where the street oiice had been and where the rows of little houses once stood. Observers could stand on long streets and as far as the eye could see every house on both sides had been damaged or blasted to bils by bombs. • . Rescue workers said the town looked as though it had WH^ shaken to pieces by an earthquake. Through the streets people wandered, many of them walking about with the aimless, vacant stare of those stricken by a tragedy that the mind could not. yet comprehend borne stood beside the few relics of their household goods, snatched from a burning home amid the rain ol bombs and anil-aircraft- shrapnel,-.

Already the contributions are within a thousand dollars of the amount necessary in order to assure every participating organization being adequately financed for foe ccming year and Mr. Shane expressed confidence that the goal would be Veached if those firms and individuals will only come Through with their part of the total. Mr. Shane pointed out that those desiring to assist in financing the library. Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, the high school band, the Good- fellows Fund, the Social Welfare, the P. T. A. and cemetery organizations and the various other activities to be.financed by the Fund should not wait for a personal call from some volunteer worker to get their subscription but should mail them to either the Community Fund, the Chamber of Com- .nerce, the Courier News, either of the local banks or deliver them in person. The Community Fund, according to Mr, Shane, has proven to be the ideal way of raising money for the many organizations which must go around each year taking up public contributions. "This way," he said, "we get the Job dont at sne time, every organization is financed, and we relieve the people of Blytheville of the trouble and annoyance attached to numerous financial campaigns throughout the year." "We know " there are many in Blytheville who mean to help In this work but they are just putting off doing so. Please ask them, for us. to 'get the job out of the way without further delay so there will be no possibility of any of our participating organizations be- mg handicapped through having to reduce their-Fund allotments," he added, :. , ;. .

For years, Atchee, at the foothills of the Ulntah mountains in western Colorado, was the shop center, for a now dismantled narrow gauge railroad. Unique shay locomotives helped trains over the steep grades of the Bookcliff mountains. But the railroad was dismantled; Its shops were closed; and consequently most of the citizens lost their Jobs. Two years ;ago Atchee contained 27 voters. - : . This year only two voters remained,, so Oarfield county commissioners abolished,, the precinct.
