School h Struek By Tornado^ 40 Student$ Injured By United Press InternatioAai '"Rie most i»itifui sight was to s«e the chiklrefi lying in the water and the blMd," a Sumner, Miss., teadier said after a tornado smashed a rural school tNiilding while students knelt cowering in the corriilor. "I saw the hand of a little boy from under the concrete blocks. He was lying flat and the brides had fallen on top of him. He was yelling, 'Help me, help me,'" anothe teacher said. The twister, which left 40 students htjured at the West District Junior High and Elementary School, was one of some 30 tornadoes which roared tivough the South Central portion of the nation Tuesday and early today. Of the 40 students injured, 10 were hospitalized and listed in satisfactory condition. There were no fatalities. Tornadoes appeared at numerous locations Tuesday and early today, swoqring out of the skies over Yeias, iyrkanias, Mississippi, Alabama and Mis^ souri causing scattered damage but, except for the Sumner tornado, no injuries. The twisters were spawned by thunderttorms which brought heavy rains to the lower Misaissippi Valley, adding more water to already bulging rivers and" streams. The Mississippi and its tributaries lumbered downstream at record levels, forcing thousands of persons irom their homes from Iowa to Louisiana. Fog shrouded {Mrtions of Texas and Arkansas today and light rain fell from southern Minnesota to the central Plains. Showers dampened the Rock­ ies and snow was reported in the higher elevations. Frost or freezing t6nu>era tures chliled Michigan and portions of northwestern Penn sylvania early today. Early morning temperatures ranged from 28 at International Fails, Minn., to at Blythe, GaUf.

Police said a volley of shots hit a police patrol car in Portadown, 25 miles southwest of Belfast, narrowly missing a policewoman driver and a male officer with her. One bullet ricocheted around the car interior. What made it unusual, police said, was the fact the snipers shot at a woman member of the security forces. It was the first time, they said, that a woman was the clear target of snipers or bombers. Police later found six cartridge cases in a nearby house plus two shotguns, some explosives and Irish Republican Army Uterature. The attack coincided with rioting Tuesday night in Bangor, a seaside resort 10 miles east of Belfast. Police charged repeatedly with flailing clubs to chase hundreds of Protestants who smashed windows of shops owned by Roman Catholics. The rioting came after a march by 7,500 Protestant teenagers wearing orange sashes to mark a 17th Century battle that led to the political and economic supremacy of Pftrf^'" estants in Northern Ireland. A police spokesman said ^ | policemen were injured and ¥t:, persons arrested in the clashei;''' Other weekend marchil passed without serious troubie| But the weekend saw virtual collapse of a truce the IRA called Londonderry to coincide with week-long Catholic communll^ festival. Less than 24 hours after t >f| truce began, Catholic youtlp rioted in a public housitMT complex, battling for hou^ while snipers fired on troo# rushed to the area. :! MAGIC PRICBS IN CERTIFIED'LAND!
