Streets would approach each other at an angle, merge for 200 or 300 feet and separate at an angle. With one-way streets and regulated speeds in the merged sections, traffic could flow faster and hazards could be avoided, he claimed. The wavy streets should be located close together in business sections and moved farther apart in residential areas to leave room for parks and lawns between rows ' str ea or straight, according to a McGill University professor -> S^ f ' B ° dgan Zaborski proposed - -js plan, ou tlinccl Tues- r* nt0 th u e AssociE »tion of American Geographers meeting here, would eliminate hazardou, street doss^ --i aying out str eets in a Steal $600 From Osceola Couple Osceola, (U.R) — Clarke county authorities Wednesday sought 3 men who robbed a farm couple of $600, then fled on foot after cutting telephone wires and warning the couple not to leave their house.

They said one of the men called at their out-of-the-way farm home pretending he wanted to borrow some gas for his car. The other 2 men, one armed with a long knife, then searched German's pockets and made the couple produce §600 hidden in an envelope.

FINE QUALITY GLASSES AT LOWER PRICES Nationalist Leaders Called for Emergency Conference Nanking, (/P)—From all corners of China Wednesday came nationalist military leaders to talk war or peace with Chiang Kai-shek. The aging president, urged by many to quit, called the conference. It probably will start Thursday. On its decision may rest the future of nationalist China, beset on the north by conquering communists. Even as the warlords, generals and leaders arrived in Nanking, a government source revealed that a red underground organization was hard at work only 2 miles from the capital. A hint that Chiang, or his nationalist leaders under a new chief, would carry on the fight came late in the day. Gen. Chen Cheng, former army chief of staff, was appointed governor of Formosa by the executive yuan (council). His appointment, plus Ihe fact the navy and air force have moved some of their headquarters units to the big island off the coast half way between Shanghai and Canton, might presage flight of Chiang's government there if Nan- king is attacked. North of the Yangtze it appeared almost all over for Chiang's men. A few pockets held out, notably in Peiping and Tientsin, and Gen. Tu Li-Min's red-surrounded force 50 miles south of Suchow. None seemed to have any chance of getting out. IOWA'S LARGEST RETAIL OPTICIANS Main Office and Laboratories — Des Moines • Branches Throughout Iowa .

Chevrolet Co. over KGLO-FM 101.1 Megacycles Trees Again Reprieved From Axe Des Moines, (/P)—Twenty - one Oskaloosa property owners filed a $10,000 bond with the Iowa supreme court Tuesday afternoon, thus preventing temporarily the removal of a large number of aged shade trees. Contingent upon the filing of the bond by Tuesday, the court recently directed the state highway commission not to proceed with the tree removal until the court can hear an appeal. The property owners also were directed to cause no delay in the hearing of the appeal. However, no deadline was set for the arguments. The bond is to cover any damages suffered by the commission or the firm which has the contract for the tree removal in a highway widening project, should the court eventually permit the tree removal. Take Troops From Korea Force May Be Cut as Much as Half Washington, (fP)— The army said Tuesday night it is withdrawing a "portion" of its troop strength from Korea, and there were indications the force might be reduced by as much as half.

The "current reduction and regrouping" of forces in Korea of which the United States and Russia each occupy half, was made possible by several factors, the announcement said, including: Establishment in the U. S. zone of a government for the republic of Korea; its assumption of responsibilities; the United Nations declaration on Dec. 12 that the government "is the only lawful one in Korea;" the ability of the Korean constabulary, civil police and coast guard to handle the recent uprising at Yosu, in southern Korea. The army said that "in the contemplated regrouping of forces troops of the 7th infantry division will be moved from Korea to Japan in several echelons to replace the llth airborne division which is being moved to the United States for tentative station at Camp Campbell, Ky."
