IN A BREWERY FIRE IN ENGLAND 480,000 BOTTLES OF BEER EXPLODED. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES OF WHEN WE MADE OUR OWN. TORNADO SPLITS STUDENT'S HOME IN HALF—University of Illinois student Hugh Ilobinson, of CraliCoNl, N. .1., was taking a shower in his Champaign, III., home when a tornado hit 16 blocks of the city and split his house In half. Here curious spectators examine the separate sections. *** .*** *** Floods Drive 12,000 From Homes Communications Workers Build New Labor Union MIAMI BEACH, Fla.— (IP)— A nexv * labor union, the Communications Workers of America, was born today with the opening of its first convention—and stepped at onco Into a world of bottles. The CWA, led by 36-year-old Joseph A. Beime, faced these two major fights: 1. Trying to enlist the nation's 570,000 rank and file telephone workers—it already claims to have 212,000—and then to lure telegraph workers and radio .technicians e.way from the APL and CIO Unions to which they now belong. 2. Trying to decide to affiliate » with tha CIO or AFL or to stay Independent of both. As the convention opened, the last alternative appeared to have the best rhnnce, partly because many CWA delegates are sore at the CIO for setting up the TWOC—Telephone ' Workers Organization Committee— Tcii days ago in opposition to the CWA. The CWA is the successor to the National Federation -of Telephone .Workers, a loose network of telephone unions which was dissolved yesterday. \ The plan to establish a closely- knit union was made last November at the Denver Convention of the Federation. ^There has been considerable dis- •". 'satisfaction among .telephone.unions with the nationwide strike that began April 7 and dragged on in some Bell Telephone Companies for six weeks. Officers of two strong unions, the American Union, of Telephone Workers and , the Western Electric Employes' Association, and of some Email unions have turned to the CIO and are urging their members to vote affiliation with the TWOC. But Beirne, who was president of the old federation and its temporary president of the new CWA, said the strike only demonstrated that a single union like CWA is needed to fight the Bell System. Beirne told a- reporter today he would recommend to the 200 clele- ' gates that organizing should be the "number one project" of. the CWA. Officers Capture Escaped Trusly .. PARIS— ((P)— A trusty who escaped from the Bonha'm Jail, stole the sheriff's car and later robbed a teen-age boy from Dodd City, was captured early today by officers who followed a faint trail through dew damp grass near Dial.. . . The trusty was John Weldon Akard. 22 of Memphis. He was serving a jail term for passing worthless checks. He walked out of the Bonham jail abput llp.m. last night and took Sheriff Dick Wait's car arid a revolver. He wrecked the car between Bonham and Honey Grove, and flagged down Junior Lowery of Dodd City, forcing him at gunpoint to drive to Honey Grove where he robbed him of $0. Lowery notified officers. Sheriff. Wait, accompanied by Highway Patrolman Ross Kemp of Paris, went to Dial where Akard was known to have relatives. They watched the home for hours but saw no sign of him. Then they found ». fa}nt trail through.the dew on the grass, and followed It into nearby woods where they found Akar<j| asleep. , . He was arrested and returned to the Bonham jail, wbiere new charges are being prepared. Sheriff Wait said, they would include kidnaping J robbery with firearms.

Ottumwa. hardest hit by floods had seven of Iowa's 11 deaths and the Red Cross said 1.545 families were affected as thfe DOS Moines River slowly receded from about one third of the homes in the city of 32,000 population. Hershel Loveless, director of rescue operations, said that he expected to find other bodies downstream but added that he had "no idea" how many. The Red Cross said a medical director and 13.000 units of typhoid antitoxin have been sent to the Iowa Health Department for immunization in Ottumwa. At Hannibal, Mo., the Red Cross said 400 families were affected and 350 families were still homeless in six Illinois counties in the Quincy area. The Mississippi, swollen by high water from the Des Moines, rolled on over thousands of acres of Illinois and Missouri farm lands- after breaking six levees and flooding the village of Alexandria, Mo., and forcing more than 1,000 families to evacuate their lowland farm homes between Warsaw. 111., and Hannibal, Mo., yesterday. Mayor Merl Hamill of Alexandria said tho. stream appeared to have crested with six inches of water in the main street. About 600 families were driven from their homes. The river reached a record stage of 23.6 feet at Quincy, 111., but that city,' situated on a bluff, escaped, damage. Across the river, the lower part of the downtown section of Hannibal, Mo., was flooded. A canyon flash flood drowned one person at The Dalles, Ore., and left more than 100 families homeless. Red Cross workers said at least 50 persons saved themselves from drowning by clinging to floating debris as 'the flood, following a hall and rain, storm, caused damage to orchards estimated at more than $1.000,000. A 15-block area of Sharon. Pa., was leveled and six persons were Idlled by a tornado which ripped into Western Pennsylvania late Saturday from Ohio. Red Cross officials estimated the storm damage in Sharon at $660.000. The same twister hit Warren. Ravenna. Deforrest, Youngstown and Niles. O.. and Farrell, Grove 3ity, and Mercer, Pa. About 100 rural residents were left Homeless at Warren. Rains continued over a wide area n Minnesota., the Dakotas. Northern [owa and Nebraska and the U. S.

Armour, a career diplomat, was ambassador to Argentina in 1939 and his appointment is regarded as a gesture of good will toward that country. The White House announcement that he will succeed Braden was made orally by Eben Ayers. press aide. Ayers did not specify that his iuties will be exactly the same as ;hose of Braden, but he gave that replication. Armour's last.post was ambassador to Spain. He has been in retirement since Dec. 31. 1945. His home is Gladstone, N. J. Braden was assistant secretary for American Republic Affairs. He resigned last Wednesday after Mr. Truman's announcement that he is satisfied Argentina has fulfilled her anti-Nazi commltmente. Long at odds with Argentine of- 'icialdonv Braden was an exponent of a "firm" American policy.

It has been reported that the people of this area have donated $900.25 in cash to the Red Cross for the disaster at Higgins and Glazier. The Red Cross has spenl $40,000 on hchabilltation work in Glazier alone it has been stated. Three Red Cross officials, Russel Minton, Lipscomb County chairman; Leo Durkee, Red Cross area director, and M. A. L. Gardner, building advisor, have issued detailed reports concerning the help that Higgins people have received. Minton recalls that immediately following' tha_fi,torm emergency supplies of food, clothing'aria "medicinal needs were rushed to,the torn area by truck and plane; until the immediate emergency was quelled. Durkee states, "Red Cross Aid has teen extended to 54 families in repairing and rebuilding their homes, and 56 other buildings were replaced or repaired as part .of the work." Gardner said that the Red Cross moved 75 housing units released by the WAA from the Cactus Ordnance Plant at Dumas to Higgins for families to use as temporary shelters. The report states: "Final figures are not yet available, but commitments made by Red Oross to date in assisting Lipscomb County residents re-establish themselves, amounts to $148,276.24. This is made up of several general categories of service. Costs of providing mass shelters and food during the early part of the operation, amounted to $9,360,88, plus warehouse and donated supplies. "This included approximately $7,000 in transportation costs on the housing units brought into Higgins. •$9,305.50 was spent for food, clothing and other maintenance on a family casework basis. Rebuilding and repair of homes amounted to $89,909.76, household furnishings $20,023.02, medical, nursing and hospital costs $14,908.11, and livestock, equipment, tools, etc., amounted to $4,770.97. "Red Cross personnel have been highly complimentary of the part every individual or group has taken in the work at Higgins. The spirit of cooperation and the courage of the community is outstanding. Not only may the citizens of Higgins take pride in their achievements since the disaster, but adjacent communities may share that satisfaction, since everyone assisted through the donation of materials, supplies and volunteer hours of labor.

Price 5 CentsAP Leased Wire Reds Try to Buy U.S. Oil Co. in Hungary BUDAPEST—/?—The Communists have offered to buy out the Hungarian-American Oil Company, an American informant said today, and have threatened to banish from Hungary the concern's American executives. The informant said the Communists were considering nationalization of thcupountvy's oil fields—as they contemplate nationalization of banks and industry—but were faced with the fact that Russia gets half the Hungarian royalties of Maort. Russia obtained half of the Hungarian royalties last year in negotiations which set up a Russian- Hungarian oil company called Maszovol. The informant and leading Hungarian political observers, advised of developments, agreed It would be only a matter of time before the new Communist-dominated Hungarian regime—rushed into office with the resignation of Prime Minister Ferenc Nagy—would take some action of Maort. The company war developed and Is principally owned by Standard OH Co. of New Jersey The American gave this account: Deputy Prime Minister Matyat Rakosi, Russian citizen and Russian-trained politician who is now virtual dictator of Hungary, spenl part of last week in the area of Maori's fields on a speaking tow designed to inform Hungarian workers of the "true facts" of the Hungarian government change. Durin this trip Rakosi spoke with Pau Ruedemann of New York, representative here of Standard Oil, and "offered twice Standard's origina investment" if the Americans woulci get out. The offer of, roughly $5,000,000 was refused and Rakosi was infonnec that a German offer of $25,000,00( for the same properties had been turned down at the beginning of the war. Stopping Basis For Communistic Growth Important By JAMES D. WHITE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst .. ..Secretary of State Marshall has given us a .second and timely look at the other side of the coin. In a speech last week before the Harvard Alumni Association he restored emphasis to that aspect of the Truman Doctrine which proposes American help for countries needing economic aid in order to, forestall the chaos of poverty around the world. It is upon tliis chaos that Communism feeds, and- it is probably unfortunate that the "stop Communism" part of the Truman Doctrine was th« one which apparently had to be played up first in order to interest the American public and Congress in the larger question of helping to stop Communism's chief condition for growth, which is chaos. Unfortunate, because the Truman Doctrine quickly became little but a simple "stop Communism" proposition in the minds of its backers and .practically all its opponents. At any rate, Soviet Communism has taken up the real or fancied challenge of the Truman policy and is countering iix its own way in Hungary, Austria, and Bulgaria, in the furtherance of the Pan-Slav movement in Romania and Yugoslavia, and in the French railway strike, with more of the same on tap In Italy if needed. Frankly, this appears to be the cost Democracy faces paying for the time and methods it takes to arouse the American consciousness to the fact that Europe is an economic shambles from which nothing but more shambles can be expected unless American economic aid is forthcoming in great and conti,nu- ing gobs. • That fact was the heart of Marshall's speech last week. He pointed to the vicious economic circle left in Europe by the war, where factories are obsolete arid cities can no longer produce the joods which ordinarily they trade to the fanner for his surplus food. This results in inflated currencies, farm hoardings and starving cities, which of course all set the stage for Communism—or any form of totalitarianism which seems to offer :he victim a way out of his personal little hell of hunger, worry and frustration. To break this vicious circle, Marshall proposes a remedy-*-"restoring the confidencse of the European jeople in the economic future of their own countries and of Europe as a whole." (And while we're about it, lel\ not forget Asia, where an even longer war was fought than in Europe.) "It is logical," Marshall went on, 'that the United States should do whatever it is able to assist in the return of normal economic health in the world, without which there can be no political stability and :ia assured peape." This help, he then said, would lave to continue three or {our years uici it mu§t come "principally America."

Railroad and Utility Workers Call Strike Grand Jury for June Term 31st District Meets Indicating a tightening up on negligent grand and petit jurors, District Judge Lewis M. Goodrich thi.s morning swore in tho Grand Jury for the June term of 31st District Court here. Of the original 16 grand jurors subpoenaed for this term only 10 reported for duty today and the sheriff was ordered to complete the panel. Of the six men impanelled by personal subpoena five were retained after one was excused. The Grand Jurors picked up this morning by sheriff's deputys are: Tom Cook. Roy Sewell. Rex Rose, Harry Height f'nd Charlie Ward. In charging the jury, Judge Goodrich appointed 13, J. Gething HS foreman and told them that only three men. could bs temporarily ex- cusr-d at any one time in order to hold a quorum of nine men. Later Judge Goodrich criticized the present carrl system oi subpeon- aing talismcn for either prancl or petit jury scrvvice complaining that this system does not give the court sufficient information as to whether or not the men have been served. He added that lie may be inclined to fine negligent jurors who "just don't show up" or do not give a reasonable excuse for dodging jury duty. District Attornew Tom Braly said approximately 15 cases are now before the June term Grand Jury including several for burglary, worth-, less checks over $50, and others.

COMMISSION MEET DELAYED The regular meeting of the City Commission, at 10 a.m. tomorrow, has been postponed until the same time Wednesday morning. Both Mayor C. A. Huff and City Manager Steve Matthews are out of town and will not be back until Wednesday. PARIS—(/P)—Plagued by a nationwide railroad strike. France was threatened today by another serious 'abor situation as public utility vorkers walked off the job in several plants near the Capital. Gas and electricity plant workers •truck at St. Eticnne and Montlu- •on, and some of the Paris suburb? were expected to be without gas his afternoon. The workers acted several hours before the government ,vas to inform their union of what concessions it was willing to grant. Premier Paul Hamadier succeeded in averting a threatened nationwide 34-hour utility plant strike 10 clays igo by ordering requisition of the .vorkers. Agreement was reached for in arbitrator—Paul Grunebaum- Ballin-to work out an accord. The leadline was last midnight. Grunobaum-Ballm was expected to icport to the union leaders this ifternoon. As in the rail strike, impatient workers struck prematurely, uid it remained to be seen whether Ramndier would rcfict in identical Cushion—suspend further negotiations until the strike eiid<?J. Whispers of n strike on the Paris Metro (subway) also were heard. Such a stoppage, in conjunction with the vail strike, would paralyze thr- Capital. A Metro official said today that no decision had been made for a. strike, but that the subway union workers possibly would take a definite stand before Friday. A 24-hour token strike for higher wages has bppji called for that day by the public service federation, of which the subway workers' union is a part. A full government council session was called to meet in the office of Socialist President Vincent Auriol to canvass tho situation, which has increased in seriousness since the National Railroad Workers Federation called the railway strike early Friday for higher pay and reclassification of jobs. Union leaders last night said they were always disposed to negotiate and hoped "this appeal will be heard." Ramadier remained silent. THttEE FINES ASSESSED Two men were assessed fines of $10 each. Sunday morning in Corporation Court by Judge Clifford Sraly. One woman was fined $10 tor disturbing the peace. Truman Delays Action on Tax and Labor Bills WASHINGTON—GFJ—President Truman will withhold action on the income tax reduction and labor bills until he returns next Friday from Canada. Telling reporters this toda^', Presidential Secretary Charles G. Ross said "thousands of letters' 1 have flooded into the White House on both measures. "Most of the mail is concerning the labor bill, and most of it urges a veto," he said. "The mail comes from both Individuals and organizations." The President will leave Washington tonight at 7 p. m. COST) and will address the Canadian Parliament on Wednesday. He is to arrive back in Washington Friday night. He has until Monday to act on the tax bUl which reduces income axes by 10.5 to 30 percent. Unless he signs or vetoes It by Monday midnight, it will become law without ,iis signature. He must act witliin 10 days <ex- iluding Sundays) after a measure •caches him. The labor bill has not yet reached the White House, but probably will arrive late today. Congressional action was completed last week. On the tax measure, Ross said: World War I buddies and an address criticizing the budget cuts voted by the Republican Congress. Mr. Truman started on the tax measure on the rounds of Presidential advirers before he left for Kansas City last Friday. He will do the same thing once the labor bill gets to him. One factor that could prompt a surprise tax decision before nightfall is that the reduction measure is due to become law July 1 if it wins Presidential approval. That means time is growing short for the treasury to get word to employers to trim the ajnounts they are deducting from workers' paycheck^. Ths immure \«»jid, out er brackets to 10.5 percent among top income earners. While some persons close to the White House said they assumed the Chief Executive's address to Parliament Wednesday would be confined to restating the two countries' hands- across-the-border attitude, an interpolation in the Kansas City speech led to some speculation that Mr. Truman might speak out on broader foreign policy issues. In telling his former buddies that "Japan struck at Pearl Harbor because she thought the United States was too weak to fight back," the President departed from his text to declare: "What a mistake she made. I could say that'for any other nation that gets the notion." Mr. Truman told his news conference last week that he considered, the Communist coup in Hungary an outrage. Later it was disclosed that the State Department is drafting a sharp note to Moscow accusing Russia of interfering ille- gaUy in •Hungarian affaire aud, to wry th$ cage to tfcs Nearly 10,000 Diggers Quit Work in Nines UNJONTOWN. Pa.—/P— Protests over a labor-curbing bill passed by Congress today were blamed for a spreading walkout of bituminous coal miners which already had idled nearly 10.000 diggers in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Some 6.600 miners quit work or voted to quit work over the weekend and today they were joined by an additional 3.600 miners in the rich coal producing fields of Fayettc. Greene and Washington Counties. William Hyncs, president of the United Mine Worker district 4 em- brncing tho Union town coal fields, declared the walkouts "unauthor- i/rti". "Tli? only thing r know is that the miners are protesting the labor bill." Hyncs snid. The district UMW head said he understood n, number of miners' meetings are scheduled for today but declined to say whether these would spread or halt the work stoppages. At Washington, (lie Hartley-Taffc Labor Bill, which would restrict strikes in essential industries and provider, new mediation machinery. was expected to reach President Truman for action in a few days. Fourteen mines were shut down, most of them captive pits owned by large strel companies—U. S. Steel Corp., Weii-ton Steel, Jones and Laughlin and Republic Steel. The walkouts came just three: weeks before the miners begin a 10-day vnnation called for officially .under their government contract/ and a month before a general strike threat. The government must return the mines to private operation July 1 but the vacation, beginning June 27, would delay any strike until July 7. Meanwhile, the last of the contract negotiations with Mine Chief John L. Lewis and the operators broke down last week. However, the 300 members of one AFL United Mine Workers Local returned to work when their president, Andrew S. Raj'ner, warned against any violation of the Federal Anti-Strike injunction which was sustained by the Supreme Court. The government gives up -jurisdiction over the mines July 1, when they return to their private owners. The work-resuming local, which, had been idle since Friday night. wa*s No. 6326 afc the Gates Mine of the H. C. Frick Coke Co., a U. S 4 Steel subsidiary. Ordering his men back to the pits, Rayner declared he didn't want the local accused of "starting a strike." He added there has been "no general order'' for the men to lay down! their tools. "I'm well acquainted with the situation that the miners are in today on account of the injunction sustained by the Supreme Court, which means the leaders of the organi- /ation and the officers of the local stand to be punished if we call a strike for any reason whatsoever," said Rayner. "I don't want to be accused of anything like that." Unwanted Child Leii In San Anionio Park SAN ANTONIO —(/P)— Wearing only diapers and hugging a partly filled bottle of sour milk, a baby girl was found on the grounds of downtown St. Mark's Episcopal Church at 1 a.m. today by Patrolman Fred W. Schutze. Searching for car prowlers, the patrolman was startled when his flashlight revealed the infant, apparently about nine months old. on a white cloth spread on the ground. Picking up the chilled infant the officer carried her to the car where he bundled her up and took her to Police Headquarters. The baby was later taken to the child wel« fare home. < Here's How to Catch Fish Without Hook W,OQD — WP) — Motorcycle Policeman Oscar Sanderson, Brownwood, caught three basa in one minute without wetting his hook.
