PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLJB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Hot Lava Pours Over Hawaii Volcano Spouts Black Stone on Kona Coast KEALAICEKUA, Hawaii, June (/F) — (By Radiophone) — Hea 1 black stone from erupting Mam Loa covers hundreds of acres Hawaii's Kona Const today. B tween 60 and 80 families have fie their homes. Lava has eaten In parts of villages. It Is a scene of both desolntlo ind beauty created by one of th world's most active volcanos. Her and there Is a fallen tree knocke over by the lava that stiil spills ove the sides of the crater. Mauna Loa broke loose Thnrsd night after a sleep of IS month Volcanologist Ruy H. Pinch of th Hawaii volcano observatory said was the most violent eruption o record for the tons of lava spewc within the first few hours. He pro dieted it might last two weeks. Greatest on Record He reported: "The area outside the crate swept by lava In the first 12 hou was the greatest on record. Its nios spectncular feature u r ns the spec with which it covered the south western slopes of Manna l.oa." Observers who have watched tin eruption from the beginning say i was even more spectacular las night that Thursday night. The lava was flowing at "break neck" speed in spots—as high as 41 miles an hour./'It's hard to esti mate the speed of the flow but it' ranging between 20 and 40 miles ai hour," Finch said. Streams Reach Sea Two fiery streams have reached the sea. A third neared the coastn highway 10 miles to the south. A fourth stream poured down toward Kau in the south point area. Kona police ordered evacuation of another south Kona village yesterday afternoon. It is the tiny settlement of Papa which is in the path of the third stream. So is Milolii village. A lava bed—the one I was able to get close enough to see—hue: turned black. It still is dangerous It is the one that first reached the eea. In some places flames spout. One tnll eucalyptus tree stands with fire gnawing at its roots. The scene xeemed something like a fireplace with dying embers — ready to be prodded into fire. Higher Than Man The edge of this lava bed Is high- «r than a man is tall. It appears much thicker in the center. It is •bout one-quarter of a mile wide and stretches from Mauna Loa to the sea, blocking the coastal highway about a mile south of here. Smoke .billows up from the lava, Joining the dark overcast above. The.smell of burning sulphur fills the >ir. Now and then there is an explosion somewhere. Large pillars of smoke rise up off to the south where other lava beds »re flowing to the sea. Fifth Column Scorned BANGKOK.

EDSON (Continued from Page 4) the Argentine, but to bail out a lumber of U.S. banks and big and ittle business firms who have tried o do business with Peron. They have shipped goods to the Argentine on credit, and have never been paid for them. So the moral question here is not whether now s the time for the U.S. govern- ent to come to the aid of Peron md his party, it is whether the U. >. government should come to the aid of American business firms who have not been very smart in their deals with Peron, Best estimates in Washington are hat the Argentine has $108.000,000 vorth of commercial debts In 'the United States. In addition time ire about $300,000 worth of Argen- ine government debts in this coun- ry. Nobody has a very clear idea )f what these Argentine government debts are for. There is a somewhat better idea if who has been holding the ba» or the $108.000,000 worth of pri- ate debts. Roughly one-third is wed to 19 U. S. banks, font are >ig banks. National City Bank of ew York and First National of Boston are on the hook for about 7,000.000 apiece. The New York gencies of Bank of London & south America and Royal Bank of Canada are in for lesser amounts. Unknown Amount Owed Small Kx|K>rters Another third of the debt is owed o U. S. big business firms. Most of the well-known names are represented — International General Electric. Westinghouse, Ford, General Motors Export and so on. The other third is owed to over 300 smaller U. S. exporters and manufacturers who have been stuck for varying sums oi $100.000 or under. There is no knoan !ist of these creditors in the U. S. now. Central Bank of Argentina and the bank group have been asked to send representatives to Washington with full information. In screening all Biese papers, Export-Import Bank is likely to throw out all claims for payments for munitions and for such luxuries as Koehler bathrooms for Evita and Cadillacs for Peron, The Argentine government will be told to pay those Itself. But all legitimate transactions—such as for farm machinery, locomotives and other manufactures—will -be considered for payment. The big question which this deal raises is whether It will merely set the Peron government up to pile on another Indebtedness, opinion is divided on the answer. The small business firms probably won't let themselves get burnt again. And the big banks probably won't let themselves get so deeply Involved, But the big manufacturing exporters will probably be right back In- Ihcre, doing business at the same old stand and in the same old way, in very short time. Competition will force them lo ex- lend new credits, and they'll hope that Uncle Sam will again collect their bills for them. One catch on this Is that U. S. firms now doing business in the Argentine have $67,000,000 of blocked profits they aren't permitted to take out of the country, except at about one-third of the current exchange rate.
