THE FAMILY PAPER moun IE BA X DISPATCH WEATHER SHOWEKS 75TH YEAR NO. 249 MOLINE-EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 10,1953 Massachusetts Hit by Twister - (3Tl TTT a FORTY PAGES. NEWSSTAND PRICE 5c 7 1 1 1 85 fa fljfi era M w Wm Asks for Unity by Allies r MINNEAPOLIS ) President Eisenhower said today all the free rations of the world must stand together in the "total defense" aganist communism. He declared fhe United States, even though the strongest nation on earth, "cannot make our own decisions, fight and stand as only we ourselves may choose." "There is no such thing as partial unity. That is a contradiction in terms," Eisenhower said in a speech prepared for the National Junior Chamber of Commerce. The President also took occasion to defend his controversial cut in the Truman administration's Air Force budget, declaring his pro gram wui mean "fewer planes in tneory, more planes in fact more swiftly and less expensively. ' In pointed words, Eisenhower declared that the insistence of his critics on "mcgic numbers" an apparent reference to those insisting on a 143-wing Air Force is not reasonable." . Names No Aames The President named no names n today's speech, his first on a five-state tour that will keep him away from Washington until Sunday night. Outlining- , what he called 'our hole concept" of the conduct of j world affairs, Ei.scnhower hammered on the theme that unity with allies of the free world is necessary the globe over. He said: "A total struggle let us never forget it calls for a total defense. As there is no weapon too small-no arena too remote to be ignored, so there is no free nation too humble to be forgotten. All of us have learned first from the onslaught of Nazi aggression, then from Communist aggression that all free nations must stand together, or they shall fall separately." And this "essential, indispensable unity." he declared, "means compromise." Eisenhower set out this concept of indispensable unity as his reply to those who lean to what he called "the fortress theory" of defense. This, he said, is the theory that sire uhv th ctrnnct n a linn in the world cannot stand by itself if-. A Hy f whv. particularly in Asia, "where! V1I xm.llll mwiVJ so many of our sons have died in freedom's name, cannot we make cur own decisions, fight and stand as we ourselves may choose" Declaring there can be no "partial unity," Eisenhower demanded: "How -a Where can there be retreat from this unity? Surrender Asia? That would mean leaving a vast portion of the population of the entire world to be mobilized by the forces of aggression. Surrender Europe? That would mean more than doubling the industrial power of those same (Communist) forces.

Weather Bur eau station at the Quad-City Air port Tuesday afternoon creased the foreheads of Quad-City residents into worried frowns. Already awed by the tornado- dealt devestation in Michigan and Ohio, resident heard. the warn ing and swept the skies with anxious glances. The warning was issued at 2 p.m. by all weather stations in a fairly large area in the Midwest. Particularly alerted was northern Illinois and southeastern Iowa. The local weather station re ported receiving hundreds of telephone calls. When would the black funnel come? Automo bile traffic in the Quad-City noticeably lessened. Clouds Add Alarm The conviction that the dread tornado was heading in this direction increased late yesterday afternoon when some lay observers noted that the formations of cumulus clouds which had been travelling in an easterly direction suddenly shifted northward. The conclusion was that the clouds, and thus the wind, were beginning to sweep in a huge circle and that a "vacuum" was slowly being formed. The weather bureau issued an "all clear" at. 9 p.m. Tension dis appeared when the announcement was made. . Bureau officials said today the tornado warning was not ill-ad-visd, inasmuch as some severe thunderstorms and very severe rains developed over considerable portions of the danger areas.

Switzerland announced it would not serve on the five-nation prisoner repatriation commission unless South Korea approves the truce. 2. South Korean leaders reitera- ited bitter opposition and anti-ar- mistice demonstrations raged in Seoul for the second straight day. 3. A spokesman for Syngman Rhee dashed reports that the South Korean President will fly to Washington to make a personal appeal against the truce. Rhee, he said, Jwill not leave Korea "at this time of grave situations." Details of what went on at today's plenary session at Panmun-jom were not disclosed.

WORCESTER, Mass. tf Th most devastating tornado ever to strike New England smashed through populous central Massachusetts Tuesday night taking a toll of at least 85 dead and more than 700 injured. At least 2.500 were left homeless in 11 communities through which the storm left a path of death and destruction. At dawn, eyewitnesses said, the smashed area resembled pictures they had seen of the damage wreaked by the atom bombs on Japan in World War II. Authorities said they won't know how high the death toll might reach until rescue workers finish debris for those who might possibly still be buried. Crushing Wind The crushing wind caught many digging through every pile of families in their homes as they were sitting down to their evening meal. Others were killed in stores, factories and on the streets. The tornado struck here less than 24 hours after a similar storm hit sections of Ohio and Michigan with a toll of 139 dead and 1,000 injured and 15 million dollars in property damage. The storm's boiling center struck Worcester and adjacent towns but its destructive force was felt over an area of about 40 square miles. Pittsfield in Western Massachusetts and Exeter, N. H., also felt the effects of the tornado but no deaths were reported there. . - Worcester alone counted about 55 dead and 400 injured. Big Houses Lifted Big houses were lifted completely off their foundations and dropped yards away. Automobiles were tossed as much as 150 feet. In Holden, Mrs. Ruth Oslund hysterically told police the wind whipped her two-weeks-old daughter out of her arms and out of sight after she ran from her house in the belief she would be safer in the open. The baby has not been found. One eyewitness told how he saw a mother and her small child crushed to death beneath a big trailer truck that had been lifted by the wind and carried several feet. Debris was carried by the heavy wind as far as 40 miles away. A big housing development in Worcester was almost completely leveled. A new five million dollar building of the Norton Company, a Worcester machine tool plant, wa reduced to a tangled jumble of steel and bricks. Two Catholic nuns and a priest were killed at Assumption College (Continued on Pac Tirol final agreement on the truce would be delayed. The other four nations named to take custody of the prisoners India, Sweden, Poland and Czechoslovakiawere expected to serve. Sweden announced Tuesday it would.

Martin's statement, approved by Taft, said: "Senator Taft returned to the Senate today after a further consultation regarding his hip condition with leading doctors. "Thev have advised him that the condition is a serious one, and that while he can attend the Senate and keep up with tiis work there, he will have to take a good deal of rest, and pursue a course of treatment which will prevent his being active as floor leader during the balance of the session." -.-.w 5- '-v t -1? 1 1 HtA. t Hp 7JU in mil. iniriiirjirti rOTty,Mf i '" mi i u 4 Q,.
