14 Thursday, March 16, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE CHARGE ALKALI TRADE CARTEL \6 Are Accused by Justice Department Washington, (/Pi--Two American export associations, 13 American manufacturers, and a British corporation and its agent were accused Thursday by the justice department of maintaining international cartel agreements to restrain trade in the manufacture and marketing of alkalis, in violation of the Sherman anti-trust act. Attorney General Bid die said civil suit filed in the U. S. district court in New York alleged the defendants have conspired to allocate and maintain exclusive marketing areas and export quotas throughout the world, eliminating competition and restraining exports by means of .illegal contracts, agreements and understandings. In addition to the defendants, the suit named 4 corporations--2 American, one German and one Belgian--as co-conspirators. The t r a d e associations are United States Alkali Export association, Inc., (Alkasso), with principal offices in New York, and California Alkali Export association (Calkex), with principal offices in Los Angeles. The suit is the first to be filed involving the activities of associations organized under the Webb Export Trade act. The act is designed to promote international trade by enabling American manufacturers to form associations to compete with foreign manufacturers. "We do not, of course, intend to interfere with any of the .legitimate activities of such export associations," Assistant A t t o r n e y General Wendell Berge said, "but many groups in this country are GETS TERM ON SPY CHARGES Dr. Thomas Supplied Data to Espionage Head Detroit, (#*)--Federal Judge Edward J.

We con tinned evasive action for about minutes, but the flak quit shortly As we left the target, the Amer ican 15th air force's heavy bom bers were barely half throug with their job on Cassino and for nations of mediums were to clea up the last remains. The bombing was carried out at an unusually low altitude for the heavies to insure added deadliness. Our pilot was Lt. Ivan Thomas, Albuquerque, N. Mex., and our navigator Capt. Robert Carlin of Des Moines. that he was mentally incapable of understanding the charge. Dr. Thomas was accused of supplying espionage information on war production and troop movements and ingredients for the manufacture of invisible ink to Miss Grace Buchanan-Dineen, described by the federal bureau of investigation as the leader of the espionage ring.

Estimate 176,960 Ballots Needed for lowans in Service Des Moines, (fP)--Auditors of 91 of Iowa's 99 counties have estimated they will need a total of 100,803 republican and 76,157 democratic primary election ballots for lowans in the armed services, Sherman W. Needham, state superintendent of printing, said Thursday. '·Those figures are merely estimates," he emphasized. "The auditors do not know yet just how many ballots of each party they will need." The auditors have made the cstimiates as a basis for the amount of paper they svill need in printing the ballots. The paper is available and the counties will do their own printing. The 91 county auditors also estimated they will need 121,820 sets of envelopes. The state now is printing u p . enough envelopes to supply all o£ the counties. Three envelopes are needed for each voter--one to carry the baU lot to the voter, one to contain the market ballots and another to carry the marked ballot envelope back to the county auditor. Counties which have not yet given Needham estimates of the* Dallot paper and printed envelopes they will need are Audubon, C a r r o l l , ' Delaware, Hamilton, Jackson, Linn, Polk and Webster.

Conger witnessed Wednesday's pulverizing American attack on Cassino from a heavy bomber which participated in the raid. In the following dispatch he tells what he saw through the liberator's bomb bay doors.) By CLINTON B. CONGER Aboard a Liberator Over Cassino, Italy, March 15, (U.R)--Bombs from our wave struck in a perfect, murderous pattern across the entire southern portion of Cassino. Flashes of flame belched into the air, and · the whole town seemed to shudder. Then impenetrable columns of thick, sluggish gray smoke obscured the target. Sitting on the rear flight deck with my legs dangling into the bomb bay, the doors of which had been left open so I could see the action below, I saw the high explosives hit the already smoking town, causing new explosions and sending up new clouds of smoke. The liberators are handling the southern section of Cassino. Flying fortresses already have laid the northern half low beneath a thick pall of smoke and dust. As the bombs dropped from the big plane in which I am flying, signaling to the rest of the formation to release all explosives, I saw the smoke from the bombs of pre- cedeing liberator formations drifting across the pock-marked, blasted outlines ot the southern portion of the town. The sky is black with P-38 lightnings protecting us, and occasional thunderbolts arc visible down below, scuttling along to 'delousc the area of enemy fighters. We haven't seen a German fighter on the entire trip and there was no flak to distract us until our bombs were away. Then Cap. Allen K. (Moose) Tobbaush, Brunswick, Ga., our bombardier, spotted the bright muzzle flashes of 4 anti-aircraft batteries and sang out over the interphone: "Flak coming up at 12 o'clock." Col. Thomas. W.
