Cairo, (/P)—The Arab league reported Tuesday the American naval attache had given "his proofs" that a U. S. warship could not have shelled Arab positions in Palestine as Syria contends it did. The American rebuttal was reported by Abdel Rahman Azzam Pasha, secretary general of the Arab league. Azzam Pasha made his statement after a conference with American charge d'Affaires Jefferson Patterson and the naval attache, Captain William R. Headden. Earlier in the day Muhsen Al Barazi, Syrian interior minister, said his government protested to Count Folke Bernadotte, United Nations peace-maker for Palestine, that an American ship on truce patrol for the mediator intervened in an Arab-Jewish battle at Al Barwa. This point is about 8 miles coast of north- said Patterson supplied him with all information the American representative had gathered on ,the incident. The American embassy said a thorough check was being made and that a statement would be issued Wednesday. inland from the ern Palestine.

Revenue from this source in the first 6 months of this year totaled $421,798.60, compared with $180,604.80 for the corresponding period last year. The tax is 5 cents a pound, paid by the distributor.

Lewis Union Charged With Draft Tactics Washington, (IP) —John L. Lewis' union was charged Tuesday with blocking 445 miners underground in West Virginia to compel them to join the union. Robert N. D e n h a m, general counsel of the national labor relations board, announced the charges in a formal complaint against District 31 of the United Mine Workers of America. Denham's complaint said UMW members blockaded the exits of 4 Preston county, W. Va., mines last March, forcing the miners to stay underground until they signed union membership application cards. Beatings of some non-unionists and mass picketing of the 4 mines —all in violation of the Taft- Hartley labor act—also were charged in Denham's complaint. Traffic Death Toll in Rise During May Chicago, (&)— The nation's traffic deaths increased in May for the first time in 7 months. A total of 2,650 highway fatalities were recorded in May compared with 2,570 in May, 194?. October, 1947 was the last previous month to show an increase over the corresponding month of the year earlier. The May toll brought the year's total to 11,270—5 per cent less than the 11,830 killed in the first 5 months of 1947. The National Safety council said the mountain states—with a 25 per cent jump in fatalities—were chiefly responsible for the May gain. Fatalities also rose in the Atlantic states. The Pacific states were the only region to register improvement with the central states holding even. Of the 425 cities reporting, 285 had no traffic deaths in May. The largest were Houston, Tex.; Richmond, Va., and Fort Worth, Tex. For the first 5 months of 1948, 139 cities had perfect records. The largest were Lawrence, Quincy and Newton, all in Massachusetts.

MASON CITY Phone 384 In Same Building as Otto Lindstrom, Blacksmith Youth Feeds Bear, Loses Left Arm Peoria, 111., (/P)—Twelve year old Johnny Dickerson climbed a 3 foot fence to get closer to the cage of 2 bears in the city's zoo at Glen Oaks park Tuesday. He stood near the cage and fed grapes to "Tuffy," a 250-pound male Himalayan bear, through the bars. Its mate, "Babe," also was in the cage. Suddenly "Tuffy" seized Johnny and pulled him against the bars of the cage and clawed at his left arm. As he screamed, A. B. Eades, a concessionaire in the park, grabbed a cane from an elderly man. He jumped the fence and thrust the cane into the bear's mouth, forcing it to release its hold on Dickerson. Dickerson's left arm was chewed off above the elbow. The remainder of the arm was amputated at the shoulder after the boy was taken to a hospital. The 2 bears, Zookeeper Dick Houlihan said, had been considered tame. U. S. Making Money Deal With Slavs Washin*&n, (JP) — The United States and Yugoslavia were reported near final agreement Wednesday on a .financial deal which would net Marshal Tito's government about $30,000,000. The extended negotiations over this money accord may have been one of the issues that set off the cominform blast Monday against the Belgrade chief. Washington officials, watching Tito's defiance of the communist high command with obvious surprise and delight, kept mum on any possible connection between the financial deal and the Yugo- slav-cominform scrap. For several months the United States government has been seeking payment of about $20,000,000 in claims for American property nationalized in Yugoslavia. Tito, on the other hand, has been laying claim to some $50,000,000 in Yugoslav assets which the United State? froze in 1941 to keep it out of axis hands. « The counter claims have been under negotiation for severa months. diplomatic informants said, with Yugoslavia at times using the talks as a basis for bitter denunciation of the United States About a month ago, however the Yugoslavs appeared anxious to reach a reasonable scttlcmen on the nationalized property. They reportedly proposed a figure somewhere near the $20,000,000 asked by the United States. The American government, in turn, appeared ready to unfreeze the $50,000,000 in Yugloslav fund as its part of the 2-way arrangement. The reported financial deal evidently has not been directly influenced by Tito's sensationa split with communist leaders. But it does tie in with growirn speculation here that if he find himself in an impossible spo with his Moscow allies, he maj turn actively to the western pow ers for help. Livestock Judging Meet to Be July 7-9 at Ames Ames, (U.R)—Iowa State college announced Wednesday its 18th livestock judging conference will be held July 7-9.

Absolved in Food Dispute at Decorah Decorah, (/P) —Secretary J\> h n Johnson of the Decorah chamber of commerce, who has been the center of a dispute concerning a proposed f^ood inspection ordinance, was absolved of blame Tuesday by the chamber's board of directors. In a statement mailed to all restaurant, tavern and food-handling establishments, the board said the chamber itself proposed such an ordinance as part of a 10 year program last fall. Later chamber action brought the proposal before city officials who said the city had no specific authority for the type of inspection proposed. Decorah became the center of a controversy when the U.

The measurse provides retirement benefits for reserves upon reaching the age of 60 if they have completed 20 years of "satisfactory federal service" as defined in the new act. This definition requires that applicants must make a minimum of 50 points per year under the reserve point system which gives credit for active duty, drill, lecture periods and correspondence courses.
