"And that's only a rough estimate,' City Manager Stanley Diet said today. The twister cut through a residential area on the southwest edge of town, leaving a swath four blocks wide and a mile long. The estimate of the loss was made by the National Board of Fire Underwriters. Debris Burned Residents mobilized quickly. Before Tuesday midnight, bulldozers began pushing aside the debris. Much of it was piled for burning on the grounds of the Stanley School, in the heart of the devastated area. The school itself suffered heavy damage.

Knight Denies Charge He Paid Debt With Workers SACRAMENTO. Calif. fAP Gov. Goodwin J. Knight said Wednesday "there is not one word of truth" in a statement a farm labor leader made at a Washing-ton hearing that Knight paid off a political debt with Mexican farm workers. "Under no circumstances would T consider such a thing," the California governor said. In Washington, H.L. Mitchell, president of the AFL-CIO National Agricultural Workers Union said Knight saw to it that 500 Mexican workers were assigned to a large California farm operator who had contributed 11,000 to a Knight campaign. A statement by Knight, Republican nominee for U.S. senator, said: "The incident Mr. Mitchell describes never took place and under no circumstances would I consider such a thing for a moment. The whole thing is a miserable fabrication. There is not one word j of truth in it." j The statement added the "badge j of ' its falsity is apparent when it j is observed that no persons, time j or place are identified."

Survey Shows Rail Crisis Affected More Than 4,800 INDIANAPOLIS (API More than 4,800 workers in railway equipment and supply manufacturing plants in Indiana lost their jobs during the last year because of the financial crisis of the railroads, a survey by the Railway Progress Institute iRPIt shows. The institute said Wednesday that the figure is expected to reach 10.700 by Sept. 20. Railway supply companies in all industrial sections were polled by RPI to determine how deeply current railroad difficulties had cut into local employment in allied industries. R. Arthur Williams, chairman of the institute, said the results "illustrate forcibly that the plight of the railroads is not that of one industry alone." "It affects thousands of families in Indiana whose breadwinners are not employed directly by the railroads." Williams added.

United States acted in "a normal ,, 'and reasonable manner. 1 U.S. officials in Berlin were waiting on a go ahead signal from Washington after Secretary of State Dulles said Tuesday the United States would negotiate. Dulles said negotiations did not mean recognition of the Communist regime. The East German promise to release the men appeared in an editorial in the Communist party npysnanpr Nah rAiitfhlanH Thij crrle, .e, , o( . ficial pronouncement. j But tilei e waa a Possible hitch in tne East German promise.

The Russians took no notice at all of Dulles' remark that in a kidnaping you must 'deal with the kidnapers to get your people back. The helicopter landed in East Germany Saturday after getting lost in a thunderstorm and running out of gas. The official German Communist newspaper conceded that the flight into East Germany could nave been an accident.

APi - A runoff election to decide the Dcmo-: cratic nominee for governor is i scheduled June 24 between Ernest I F. Hollings and Donald Russell. Hollings, 36, a Charleston attor-; ney now serving as lieutenant ; governor, ran ahead of the 52- year-old former president of the University of South Carolina in the Democratic primaries Tuesday. Third in the field was Mayor William C. Johnston of Anderson, brother of U.S. Sen. Olin D. Johnston tD-SCl. The mayor conceded defeat. Nearly complete but unofficial returns gave Hollings 140.779 votes. Russell 118,638 and Johnston 80,280. Party nomination is equivalent to election in this heavily Democratic state. The day was marred by the slaying of State Sen. Paul A. Wallace, 57. as he learned he had won renomination. He was shot in the Marlboro County sheriff's office in Bennettsville and police held County Clerk Henry A. Rogers, 67. Motive for the slaying was not clear. Pentagon Plan Compromise Is Offered WASHINGTON (APi Republicans, as expected, offered a compromise plan as the House began debate Wednesday on a defense reorganization plan which President Eisenhower has strongly urged be changed. Rep. Leslie S. Arends of Illinois, who offered the compromise, said it is acceptable to Eisenhower. Showdown voting is due Thursday with the compromise evidently facing an uphill battle. Both versions of the bill would greatly increase the power of the secretary of defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff over combat operations. Rep. Carl Vinson (D-Ga), chairman of the committee, launched debate on the controversial subject with a 40-minute denunciation of the three major changes urged by Eisenhower. The issue. Vinson said, is congressional control over the armed forces. The major compromise's point would provide that the heads of two armed services, rather than only one. could appeal to the Congress a decision of the secretary of defense abolishing or transferring a major service combat function. Both versions of the bill would permit the Congress to block any change in functions by a majority resolution passed by both Houses. Tt would not be subject to a presidential veto. Under the compromise, the Congress would have to act within 43 days ' after a change is proposed rather than 60 days, as in the committee bill. Also, objecting service heads would have to certify that the proposed change would "seriously impair the national security.1' Another compromise provision would comply with Eisenhower's request for elimination of a section saying the secretary of defense shall control the individual services through the respective secretaries of the Army, Navy and Air Force. It would provide that each department be organized '"with its own secretary . . . under the direction, authority and control of the secretary of defense." But it also would provide that an assistant secretary of defense may direct a department secretary "only when specifically delegated such authority" by the secretary of defense.
