Hurricane Wallops Citrus Belt Of Florida in Orlando Area MIAMI, Fla , Sept. S. W—The dying remnants of an erratic Irop- ical hurricane which look two lives and left over 400 homeless buffeted the rich citrus belt of central Florida today with winds of 50 to 60 miles per hour. Lumbering eastward al about eight miles an hour, the badly shattered center of the storm' was located al 9:30 «.m. <CST> aboul 35 miles west southwest of Orlando Florida's citrus capital. Although |t h*d deteriorated Into more of »• milsanct than * threat, It »lre»dy had done Its dirty work. The tiny fishing village of Cedar K*T, lour BUM .« Uw *« of Florida southwest of Gainesville, had been dealt a devestating blow by the small but vicious hurricane. * AP Photographer jimmy Kerlin, trapped In the village when waler flooded Ihe only link with the mainland, said It was the "worst I have experienced" In ten years of hurricanes. _"Vou had a leeling In Cedar Key any felt of being blown off the Island minute," Kerlin recounted. "I that al any time I would be blown out In the Gulf." Kerlin described Ihe damage to the liny community of 888 u "»P- p»JUn«.» help North Korean aggressors. Russia's Jakob A. Malik hai in sistcd since he returned to the. council Aug. 1 lhat the U. S. reso lution is merely designed lo "hid and justify American aggression In Korea. "He returned to that theme »t yesterday's stormy session declaring that U. S. intervention is "the real threat to international peace and security." The North Koreans, he insisted, are "fighting a Just war against the foreign Invaders." Malik's bitter, 45-minute attack on the TJ. S. came an hour after American Delegate Warren R. Austin officially notified the council that United Nations forces had shot down a plane off the Korean coast bearing Soviet markings and had recovered the bod.v of a man idcn- tified by his papers as a Russian lieutenant. Malik Dismisses HcM Malik dismissed the reported air fight as 'one of a scries of provocations by Gen. MacArlhur and the war department" intended to spread the Korean war. He Implied that the U.S. manufactured the happening by saying "the sea was chosen to conceal the sharp corners of the Incident." Diplomats were surprised lhat Malik waited an hour after Austin reported before making his reply, and then spoke of the shooting so briefly and In such comparatively mild tones. They noticed that he lefl lh« council chamber before speaking and speculated thai he wenl outside to receive his Instructions from Moscow on how to deal with the incident. Americans Again Denounced The Russian's extension of hi? reply ir.lo a long denunciation of American action In Korea delayed the council's slow progress towards a vote on the American resolution. H Is now expected today. The delay In the vote led the American delegation to postpone, plans lo «sk for a special council meeting-to set up a commission to Investigate Chinese Communist charges that American planes have bombed Manchurl.in territory. A spokesman said Ihe U. S. considered such an Investigation urgent, "because we have been accused of something and want the facts discovered before the trait gtta cold." He said the U. S. would press for the special mecllng as soon as the Korean quesllon has come lo it vote. Under the u. S. plan, revealed last Friday, India and Sweden would make «n on-the-spot probe of the Oct alleged allacks. Both eounlrles have Dee diplomatic 'representative.* In Pel- M»r and hevt s»lrt they would «e- M«y diate inquiry by the Senate Interior Committee he heads. Chapman, he added, Is "anxious" to testify and Schoepiwl will be jnvited to attend. "We'll let the chips fall when hey may," O'Mahoney said. Democratic senators had termed Schoeppel's accusations "politics." Schoeppel told the Senate Chap- nan's record "Is replete" with "ref- >reiice* which show conclusively the. >trong and close personal alliance between the Russian Soviet cause and the present secretary of interior." 'A Clean Bill" O'Mahoney said Schoeppel's charges were similar to ones checked in 194« by a House labor subcommittee which, he said, gave Chapman "a clean bill." Schoeppel coupled his attack on Chapman with a broadside againsi, persons pressing for statehood for Alaska. He said he favors statehood forbolh Alaska and Hawaii "but not as adjuncts of the Department of Interior. I do not want to wake up and find a so-called American quisling doing a Job that might be serving the purposes of Soviet Russia." Al»kan Governor Accused He accused Alaskan Governor Ernest Omening and Delegate E. L. Barllett. who represents the territory in Congress, of having been instrumental in hiring to lobby for Alaska statehood a former public relations counsel for Communist Poland. He Identified the lobbyist as John Hampton Randolph Peltus who, he sold, was a. registered "agent of the Kremlin via Warsaw" for Inn* yeara before taking Ihe Alaskan job. ,; .... _ ,, -B»rtletl offer«-d to appear before O'Mahoney's commute* to reply. Attack. OB Statehood William Dougherty, Interior Department spokesman, characterised Schoeppel's remarks as an attack on Alaska statehood. He said Chapman was studying the speech and would have a "full itatement" today. Dougherty said that Chapman: 1. Had nothing to do with the appointment of Peltus, and didn't even know him. 2.
