British authorities reported today that the Jewish Hagana defense army tilled 70 Araba and wounded LOO others in a counter-attack last night in the blood-soak ed battleground between Te Aviv and Jaffa. The sensationally heav; Arab casualties nearly dou bled the death toll in th communal fighting which broke out after the United Aviv and Jaffa.Nations vote Nations voted 10 days ago to partition Palestine. British sources said modern arms were carried by several hundred Arabs which attacked the Salame quarter of Tel Aviv. Jews in Tel Aviv were panic-struck as the Arabs set fire to three huts, the British reported, but Hagana rushed up reinforcements in taxi cabs, buses, ^automobiles and trucks, and drove 'T^Lhe Arabs back. The battle also took the lives of 12 Jews and three Britons. A new outbreak of violence today killed six Jews and one Briton raising the Palestine death toll to 115.

The attractive brunette, Ella Lee Waggoner, dialed police In the dark when the Negro attempted to force ils way Into her room. He was captured after being shot in the shoulder as he attempted to escape. According to Detective Chief C. O. Fink, Harris later admitted raping a white woman »nd attacking a half-dozen others during recent months. An ex-convict, Harris had served a third of an 18-year-burglary term when paroled In 1844. Four Accused as Counterfeiters Soviets Weaken Before Big Four Prospecrs Brighter 'For Conference on Future <>F Germany By R, H. shackford United Press Staff Corraj LONDON, Dec. 9.MU.P.) cheslav M. MolotovV'F sjlg ..promise Dissolved the conference of foreign ters was doomed to early adjoum- , ment and raised hope that the f % Big Four at least could get down " J to work on some of the major German peace problems.. While Molotov restated his demand for $10,000,000 in reparations from Germany yesterday, he abandoned his previous stand that agreement on reparations must be a condition for economic unity. At the beginning of the third week of the conference, there jtas still a lot of pessimism about the possibilities of agreement. But there also was considerable hope —where there was none 24 hours ago—that the ministers could come to grips on some of the major German problems. Marshall Gets Action The credit for finally pinning Molotov down and getting him to be specific goes to Secretary of State George C. Marshall, who has repeatedly insisted that Molotov state 1 the current Soviet views on reparations and submit a working paper on Russian economic proposals for Germany. Significantly, Molotov's "compromise" came a few hours after Marshall had called Britain's Ern- Foreign Aid Bill Faces New Delay Steering Committee Doubts Final Vote Can Be Had Today WASHINGTON. Dec. 9. (UP) — The House Foreign Affairs Committee today decided to fight proposals for direct distribution of new U. S. foreign relief supplies by the Red Cross and other private " semi-public agencies. The decision was taken In an executive session of the commlt- ee as the House met to resume consideration of a growing pile of amendment? to the $590,000,000 emergency foreign aid bill. It also agreed to oppose amendments to bar shipments of fertilizer, from machinery and petroleum products even if the President finds :hem to be scarce In the United States. But its major fight will be a- galnst th< amendment by Rep. August H. Andresen, R., Min., to provide for distribution of two- thirds of the relief supplies through the Red Cross, religious and other private organizations. The committee was informed by Basil O'Connor, American Red Cross chief, that the Red Cross could not handle the distribution of supplies as proposed In the Andersen amendment. Because of the Increasing determination by opponents to load down the bill with amendments, the House 00P;>ader5h4p : wa» begin- Coverinff their faces with handkerchiefs, left lo right, Vito D'Aftostino, 3t, Minus Arelos, 43, John Bren nan, 47, and Peter Klikas, 47, are led by a V.

Strike in Italy Is Postponed Christmas Bonuses For Unemployed Goal Of Red Labor Leaders ROME. Dec. 0. (UP) — The Communist-controlled chamber of La- fief today .postponed ^for rat least HJ^hours a jjeneral' strike scheduled Wibegln in Rome' at midnight to- China. The Senate-approved carried the full '$597,000,000 thorlzatlon asked tration for the and France's Georges a private conference to est Bevin Bidault to plot showdown Western strategy if Molotov failed to yield. What effect the meeting of the Three had on Molotov's move ras, of course, unknown except to Tolotov. But he had another fling at the Western Powers yesterday. He accompanied his proposals with another bitter attack against the West, alleging the Marshall Plan would enslave "democratic' Europe, that the allies were building up Ihe Ruhr as a "strategic base" for domination of Europe and that the West plans to divide Germany and set up a separate government for the Western Reich. Molotov Is Vitriolic His attack was so vitriolic lhat the British delegate called perversion of the facts and shocking mlsstatement as far as the Ruhr is concerned. Marshall, who has accused Molotov of not believing his own propaganda, did not bother to answer. Major interest centered in the fact that Molotov after two weeks of sparring had linally been forced to admit that Russia's reparations bill was still $10,000,000,000 to be collected by removal of Industrial plants, through current production and German asseU abroad and through "various services,' meaning forced labor. That shared the spotlight with Molotov's answer to Marshall. The JBDViet delegation no longer de Stands agreement on reparations as a preliminary condition to solution of the problem on German economic unity. Although some Western delegates feared Russia might withdraw Its demand for so much reparations as propaganda for Germany, most of them felt Russia repeated the claim as a bargaining point High American officials doubted that the Russians were unrealistic enough to think that they could still collect that much from pros-Oct trate Germany. Dec House Foreign Affairs Committee called an eleventh hour strategy meeting in advance of the regular House session. The committee, which is steering the bill tthrough the lower chamber, was to decide how far it would go in accepting proposed changes in the legislation during the final hours of deliberation. Tlie House itself was called Into session an hour earlier than usual. The Republican leadership felt that with this head start, it could bring the bill to a final vote so that House and Senate conferees could begin to compromise their differences. As the house bill now stands, It would provide $530.000,000 [or emergency relief to France, Italy and Austria, and $60.000,000 tor bill au- by the adminls- three European countries but nothing for China. Still shaken by a few close calls on major tests of strength in the House yesterday,. Foreign Affairs Committe members were worried about efforts to trim the authorization. Rep. Bartel J. Jonkman. K., Mich., was ready with an amendment to trim the authorization to $300,000.000. He was set to argue that there are funds still available in the old UNRRA account and In other programs which would more than pay for the entire stopgap air program. Fear Impact on U. S. Economy First items on the house agenda were amendments offered by Rep. Thomas G. Abernathy, D. Miss., and Rep. .Andersen. They would bar purchases of fertilized, farm equipment and petroleum products when they were found to be scares in this country. Most of the opposition to the bill wa« based on the effect of exports on supplies and prices at ^home. In an effort to counter the it! threat from this source, the Foreign Affairs Committee has agreed on an amendment which would require: 1. That the President regulate purchases under the act in such a way as to minimize the Impact on U. S. natural resources and on domestic prices. 2. That purchases be made from foreign sources whenever the cost delivered to the recipient country will be less than the cost delivered from the United States. 3. That not more than 25 per cent of the funds be used to buy commodities abroad, provided that the President finds the commodities scarce In this country. • •• • The labor organization's decision to delay the strike eased tension that had been mounting hourly. The Communist-controlled Chamber of Labor promised the midnight walkout unless the government grants .Christmas bonuses for the unemployed, starts a gigantic public works program, and punishes police and government officials responsible for police action against Communist demonstrators- Premier Alclde tie Gasperi, a Christian Democrat, regarded the . ultimatum as another Communist attempt lo unseat his government. De Gnsperi was studying the ultimatum, but had not scheduled meetings with the cabinet or labor representatives. A spokesman for tile Chamber of ] Labor said the strike was set and that,' "we ive waiting for word from the premier." "Our demands are firm and our ultimatum is clear," the labor spokesman said. Neither government nor labor spokesmen, however, would predict whether the strike •vault) occur. A general strike would paralyze this city of 1,500.000 inhabitants, and close the newspapers which vigorously support the D~ Gasperi government. The new crisis came as a parti- j san Congress convened In Rome leard a suggestion that an irt- lernational partisan army be established. Tills \vos regarded as possibly the first step toward organizing a military arm for the new nine-nation coninform. Soviet Influences Seen The partisan army was proposed by Gen. Sldor Kovpak. vice presi- ! church dent of the Soviet Ukraine. The I teams Idea, expressed first at a press conference, got quick support from delegates from Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Italy. New violence flared at the small town of Vittorio, Sicily, where police using tear gas scattered workers who left a chamber of labor meeting and attacked rightist party rieadquarters. A vice commissar of police, three carablnieri and several citizens were Injured in the brawl. The chamber of labor's ultimatum to the Rome government followed last Friday's disturbances In which one Communist was shot to death and a number of policemen were wounded when police broke up a demonstration of unemployed. The chamber demanded that a Rome public works program start immediately to give Jobs to the Temperatures Go Below Zero in Northern States (By United Press) .

(U.P.)—Russia broke off trade nego- tuitions with France today and ordered home a French / reparation mission in Moscow as the Paris government' stepped up its drastic campaign against Communigt-led strikers.

The government backed up its ultimatum with a wiiniing Hint 2-10,000 troops soon would be ready to go into action ugttinst saboteurs and Communist riot squads. ' — + In swllt succession the Soviet . mbiissy announced that the French epatrlatlon mission now in Mos- ow had been ordered out at once, and the Moscow radio reported that ilaiis for a French trade delegation to go to Moscow were being :anceled. Moscow hinged Its reprisal on the ouster o[ 19 Soviet leaders from ' France and the closing of Camp Deauregard, Russian repatriation camp outside Paris, where French, raiders reported that- they found illegal arms caches. Moscow rejected France's complaints of "subversive activity" ill the camp as "foul slander" and , said the French action was "hostile and contrary to the spirit'ol alliance and mutual assistance" between the counties. The Moscow radio said that in view of the repatration dispute.

IV added that Arkansas still Is a deficit*' feed-producing stale and urged every farmer lo raise feed for his own stock. « An era of continued high prices (or farm products was foreseen, but higher production cosfs were expected to offset some of the aili-untage gained, the report said. The price ol meat animals Is cx- ptcted to be. somewhat less favorable, due to higher feed costs, but continuance of the trend toward Increased livestock production Is vitally important, the committee said. Heavy marketing of beef cattle has been reported, nnd there will be 4.000,000 fewer cattle on Arkansas farms next Jan. 1 than at the beginning of 1017. Meanwhile, the U. S.

This is ZO.OOO bales below the Nnv. 1 forecast anil 21,000 hales smaller than the 1016 crop. Acreage increased 20 per cent this year, the U.S.D.A. said, but yields were reduced by ' drought.
