Staff Correspondents Walter Loean and Frank Fisher were in Bari at the time. Logan was knocked out by an explosion and hospitalized. Fisher witnessed the entire raid and reports what he saw in this dispatch. By FRANK FISHER London, (U.R)--German bombers Hew over Bari harbor at 10,000 feet on the night of Dec. 2 and blasted it into a nightmare of. exploding shells, leaping flames, and shattered buildings by a lucky hit on an ammunition ship. · dow: "1 I stood under the clear, starlit please!" sky on the opposite side of the harbor from the target docks and watched the sight in all its terrific magnificence. Only now does censorship permit me to tell about it. The German planes strnck shortly after 7 p. m. The harbor was jammed with ships, loaded with war goods. The planes announced themselves with a string of chandelier flares, which lighted the harbor. Then the bombs came cascading. The harbor's 2 long piers stand out from a shore that runs straight for more than a score of miles so it was almost impossible forl the enemy to miss. The first bombs fell short but one pitched into the town 150 yards from the car in which my party was driving and sent a spout of smoke and dust skyward. We drove through the middle of the town to the other side .of the harbor. Watching across a neck of sea a mile from the docks, we saw yellow flame spread out and then a cloud of smoke pour; upward, its underside tinged with red. Without warning that was blotted out by a terrific explosion. The whole sky seemed to fill with a dull reddish flame. A sailor near me whispered: "My God, they got the ammunition ship." There were a few seconds of silence. Then a wind whipped through the town like a tornado. There was a continuous crunch of breaking glass, punctuated by the heavier sound of doors, window frames, and Venetian blinds being ripped out. Although it was then too late, many persons dropped to the ground for shelter. We could only conjecture the havoc wrought amid the ships and personnel. (U. S. Secretary of War Stimson announced on Dec. 16 that there were roughly 1,000 casualties to service personnel.) Scores were wounded by flying glass. They walked about as if stunned, their faces like maps drawn with lines of blood. The plate glass doors of a hotel behind us blew out and as the wounded and those seeking shelter p o u r e d through the revolving door, the fragments were ground with a screeching sound. One of.the freaks of the blast was the blowing of 3 large window frames across a room without damaging a single.pane of glass. A naval officer, slightly wounded, told me later he stood witlun 200 yards of the ammunition ship when it went up and was not even knocked down. Then miles inland, -the wind blew out windows. The force was felt at some points 20 miles away. But it freakishly jumped some areas closer to Bari. Several score persons ' were killed in the town and virtually every window in Bari proper was shattered. · The ammunition ship set afire several other ships. Some sauk swiftly and some burned all night. The next morning 1 counted 9 ships partly sunk or burning so fiercely they could not be saved. The navy has been criticized for putting so many eggs in one basket, but hundreds of ships supplying the allied armies had passed through Bari in a few months. Bari and Taranto probably were the only ports at that time, capable of handling a large amount of traffic so the ships pushed in time and again. Every opportunity was taken of a strange German reluctance to attack the port. When they did attack, it was a profitable target, but the total score was only 17 vessels destroyed out of "several hundred satetly berthed and unloaded and thousands of tons of war materials delivered to ,the fighting men. Farmers Union Favors U.S.ControlIf Packers Fail to Handle Hogs Des Moines, IIP) -- The Iowa Farmers Union favors government control and operation of packing houses if packers fail to provide an outlet for the large supply oi hogs, E. E. Roelofs, executive secretary of the union's permanent co-operative c o m m i t t e e , said ^hursday. Roelofs asserted that slaughterers were processing less pork than a'year a go. despite an oversupply of hogs ready for market. "If labor strikes, the government takes over," he said. "There is no reason why this should not be done in cases where packing houses do not operate to capacity." Roelofs said the suggestion had been forwarded to a co-operative committee on hogs in Washington The union's Iowa co-operative committee adopted a resolution opposing as "unfair" proposec federal legislation which woulc tax dividends of co-operalives.

E. Walters, Des Moines district OPA admin- strator, announced Thursday he vas opening a determined campaign against the gasoline black market in the district. At the same time he said that In a meeting here all mayor distribu- .ors in Des Moines had pledged jheir full support and assistance. Similar meetings with distributors will be held at Fort Dodge Jan. 24, Mason City Jan. 25, Waterloo Jan. 26, Cedar Rapids Jan. 27, Ottumwa Jan. 28, and . Creston Jan. 31. Special emphasis will be placed in the campaign, Walters said, fen prevention of the 3 most common violations committed in retail sales. They are acceptance of ration coupons on which the automobile license number and state ot issue have not been writtei acceptance ol expired coupons and acceptance of. coupons not ye' valid. In the Des Moines meeting rep- resentatives. of the distributors | were told that ration bank credit would be refused to distributors 'or all such coupons obtained hrough retailers. Audit of licensed distributor gasoline bank accounts has revealed, Walters said, an accumu- ation of improperly indorsed, expired and not-yet-valid coupons. In the future all such coupons as well as any others of a questionable nature will be charged against the distributor and he in turn will recover from the retailer who submitted them. To assist in the campaign distributors will be furnished a supply of a condensed instruction sheet to be given retailers. . population in Chickasaw county, and Marathon, in Buena Vista county.
