LIBRARY LOG&NSPORI PUBLIC IMAKI Fires Rage Through Algiers US Expecting New Flare-Up In Berlin Crisis WASHINGTON (AP) - Signs are emerging that the cold war lull which has marked U.S.-Soviet relations since late last year is giving way to increasing tensions and perhaps a new flare-up in the ' Berlin crisis. U.S. officials'said Saturday they are not yet sure which way Soviet Premier Khrushchev will decide to move. But he is obviously under various severe pressures, internal and external, and such a situation may well lead him to apply new heat to Berlin. Even if; he decides against such a campaign with its potential dangers of a confrontation of U.S. and Soviet power, he is assumed here to be planning a step-up in anti-Western propaganda over the issue of the Common Market. The pressures which Khrushchev is under were pointed up this week by two developments in Moscow: 1. Representatives of Communist parties from the European satellite countries and Outer Mongolia met to consider, so far as is known, their economic plight. Publicly, the end product was a communique calling for an international trade conference to create an agency to expand world trade. 2. A Soviet note was sent to the U.S., British and French governments 'Friday, accusing them of supporting "dangerous provocations" from West Berlin against Communist East Berlin. This note contained a Soviet threat of new pressures for a change in the status of West Berlin, though once more without a deadline. The Berlin dispute flared into a full-fledged crisis nearly a year ago when a massive outpouring o) refugees from East Germany led the Red" regime to seal off the border in mid-August and start building a wall through the heart of the city. At one point U.S. and Soviet tanks faced each other a) point-tolank range several hours. At the end of September Secretary of State Dean Rusk started a series of exploratory talks with Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko and more recently with Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin on the possibility of an East-West agreement on Berlin. The opening of the talks marked the beginning of a decline in tensions which rdevel- oped into a real lull in East-West conflict. The lull held through occasional disruptive incidents such as the outbreak of fighting in Laos and Red harrassment of Western aircraft flying the corridors to Berlin. What is worrisome to authoritie: here is that Khrushchev now ap pears to be under the kind o pressures which often tempt dictatorial leader to create for eign diversions. THE SUNDAY LOGANSPORT PRESS Bombs Damage Schools, Buildings UNITED PRESS ALL PHONES 4T41 IOGANSPORT, INDIANA, SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 1962. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE TEN CENTS Girl/18, Is Victim Of Car Crash By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS An Indianapolis girl was killed Saturday night when a speeding car carrying four teen-agers collided with a semi-trailer truck and flipped on its top at a near downtown Indianapolis inter section. The death boosted Indiana's weekend traffic fatality toll to three, all in Marion County. Police said Cattty Van Holern, IS, died after she was pinned beneath the overturned auto in which she had been riding. Police said the teen-age driver of the auto disregarded a stop light and his ear rammed a semi trailer truck, brushed another auto and then flipped over in the intersection. James E. Johnson, 19, Peru, belieyed to be the driver of the car, was injured and listed in serious condition in Marion County General Hospital. The other occupants of the car, Terry Hatfield, 16, and Sherry Sams, 15, both of Indianapolis, • were listed in fair condition. The trucker, Bedford Durham, 51, and the driver of the second car, John Woods, 23, Indianapolis, were not injured. The first weekend traffic victims were two semi-trailer truck drivers who died Friday night in the fiery collision of their vehicles at the intersection of Ind. 37 and 71st Street just northeast of Indianapolis. They were Otis L. Ross, 37, Indianapolis, and Fred Bryant, 26, Marion. Both were pinned in the cabs as the trucks collided head-on and exploded into flames.

(AP) — Massachusetts Democrats have another Kennedy-led state 'ticket to offer the voters this fall. The latest Kennedy political entry is President John F. Kennedy's youngest brother, Edward M. —called Ted—who won the endorsement of the Democratic State Convention Friday night, That was only , the opening round. State Atty. Gen. Edward J. McCormack Jr., who lost .to Kennedy, said he'll "take my case to the people," by entering the September -state primary. And if that isn't enough, just a week from Saturday there's another famous political name going into the arena at the Republicans' state convention in Worcester.

Laurence Curtis, R Mass., who turned to the Senate contest when congressional redis tricting eliminated his seat. And it could be that the Re publican senatorial contest also will be appealed to the party voters in the primary. A convention win in Massachusetts simply gives the endorsee candidate first place on the bal lot. He still can be forced to bat tie it out for the nomination in the 'primary. All this means there may be a fourth generation election conte's in the making between the Lodge and Kennedy families—the lates battle in a Lodge-Kennedy feuci that began a half century ago. It was* away back there tha President Kennedy's grandfather John F. Fitzgerald,'took the only election licking the Lodges ever gave the Kennedy clan. It was President Kennedy wh: evened the score in 1952 for his grandfather when he captured a Senate seat from Henry Cabo Lodge, grandson of the winner early in the century. After his Senate defeat in tha year, Lodge became the Eisen hower administration's ambassa dor to the U.N. and two year ago he was the vice presidentia nominee on the Republican ticke which went down before the Ken nedy-Johnson team. And there's even a famou, name aiming for the Novembe election' as an independent, a Har vard history professor,,. H.

Spain Stages Wave Of Arrests In Underground Activities Revival MADRID, 'Spain (AP)—A wave of arrests was reported in Spain Saturday in the wake of a reviva-li of underground activities against the Franco government, Official sources said numerous arrests were made. Some estimates put the number in the hundreds. The crackdown came as the Cabinet, in a step aimed at curbing antigovernment elements, suspended for two years the right of Spaniards to live and move as they wish in Spanish territory. The decision, following two in-, cidents of bomb explosion's in Madrid and a meeting of Spanish: opposition leaders in Munich, Ger. many, revived speculation that a, shakeup was near in Gen. Fran- iisco Franco's Cabinet. Official sources reported some dissatisfaction on Franco's part with the.lack of ministerial coor-i diriation in handling' a" recent! strike wave, which .continued for more than seven weeks • and reached a 'crest of nearly lOO.OOOJ men on strike before it receded.! Some of the Cabinet changesi will- be made for reasons oii health, these sources predicted.! At least two ministers are ailing and - have 'asked to be relieved'. One unsolved question was the future of Minister Jose Solis Ruiz. Franco's.chief-of .the Spanish syndicates and head of the Spanish: Fal'ange. Long rated just below! 'Franco,' Solis appeared to some; to have lost considerable political; stature during the strike wave. Sources close to th« Cabinet said a determination to crackdown heavily, on any. opposition, groups supporting or causing violence in Spain was evident at the Cabinet meeting. This was borne out by reports that security police'had made a general : roundup of suspects. These detentions appeared -to be in a hunt for those responsible for two separate bombings .in .Madrid —one at the former palace of the papa! nuncio and the other at a Madrid bank reportedly controlled b. (he Catholic laymen's organization Opus Dei. Official sources denied reports circulating here that a Catholic priest had been detained in connection with the Madrid bombings. But they said one priest was held- under what • amounted • to. house arrest at a monastery in nearby. Escorial .under orders of church officials. They said this priest has been summoned to Madrid for a hearing before high churchmen on complaints that he was among strike agitators in Barcelona. They refused to give his name. Government sources said the decree restricting movements of Spaniards was aimed not only at hailing the movements of opposition faction?, including Gil Roble's, a Madrid lawyer and politician identified as head of the Christian Democrat movement. They said the 'decree was provoked by a reported meeting in Munich on June 5 and.6 at which Hobles and Rodolfo Llopis, secre- tary-general :n exile of the Social. ist Workers party of Spain, sought to influence the Association for European Union to declare againsl. Franco. .The Faliuigist organ Arriba headlined its agency report of the Munich meeling "treason and stu-. pidity are allied in a dirty union against Spain." Surprising.!;', the Spanish censorship permitted Madrid newspapers to p'iblish a detailed account of the reported meeling, in. eluding the names of Spaniards participating;, 4Burn din Gas Explosion CRAB ORCHARD, Ky.
