E. (Dusty) Rhoads as OUumwa commissioner of public safety at the close of evidence on County Attorney John D. Moon's petition for ouster on grounds of failure to perform the duties of his office. Counsel for Rhoacis and for the state waived argument .and Judge McCoid gave his decision immediately. Previously a blanket denial as to knowledge of illegal operations in the city of Ottumwa during the past year was claimed by Rhoads, 53, when he took the stand in an effort to prevent his removal from his municipal office. While conceding that he had "heard" liquor was being sold illegally in the city, Rhoads said he never knew for sure until after police conducted a series of raids a month ago. at which time a small amount of whisky was found in 2 places. The entire session Wednesday morning was devoted to defense evidence. Besides Hhoads himself and 6 character witnesses, the only other person to testify in the defendant's behalf was Police Chief Doyle Jones. Like Hhoads, Chief Jones told the court that he knew of no law violations since he took office last April in which arrests had not been made.

It was the American heavy bombers' 8th big assault in 10 days, sfrid- ca'm'c after only one day's interval since the last heivy attack on the German capital. High explosive bombs weigh from '250 pounds upward. If all 10,000' were 250-pounders, the lolal weight would be 1,250 tons.

This British Newspapers Declare Reds Rejected Latest Polish Offers London, (jPi--British newspapers said Wednesday that Russia lad rejected the latest Polish compromise offer to settle the Russo-Polish boundary dispute. but Premier Stanislaw rvlikalajc- zyk declared that his Polish gov- ernmer.t-in-exilc had not b e e n informed about it. There was strong resentment in Polish circles over reports published by the London press that the Soviets had rejected the. plan for a temporary settlement --a proposal which Mikolajczyk described as a British" rather than Polish suggestion. The Poles felt that Iheir government should have been informed if Stalin had refused to agree to the plan transmitted to the Soviets by P r i m e Minister Churchill. It was understood here that in rejecting the counter-proposals, the Kremlin reiterated that no understanding can be reached unless certainly allegedly "anti-soviet" elements are eliminated from the exiled government, and the Curzon line is accepted as Poland's eastern boundary.
