The court ordered the full 20 per cent increase put into effect. The boost will become effective as soon as local laws and individual leases permit. Woods had approved only 8 per cent of the proposed Jamestown increase—that portion based ori^n- creased taxes on rental property. He had turned down the local board's plea for an additional 12 per cent increase, based on decreased earnings of a "sample" group of: landlords. Under Woods' regulations a "sample" in a city the size of Jamestown — with 19.000 rental units—must comprise at least 450 units. 19 Per Cent Meat Price Drop Reported Chicago, (/P)—-The American Meat Institute says the general wholesale price of all meat in the nation has dropped about 19 per cent since the mid-September peak.

The soldiers were not injured by the gunfire, and %vere released after being held and questioned Sunday night and Monday, it was said here. Their names were nol disclosed. All were U.

Y., (U,R) President Truman is the best dressed man in America, Mrs. Veronica Dengel, president of the American Women's institute, said Monday.

Reno Hit by 7 Sharp Earthquakes Keno, Nev., (/p)—Seven earthquakes hit Reno within 4fc hours Monday night—the 3rd one causing "a good deal of jiggling" in Reno's 42-year-old city hall and bringing prompt adjournment of a city council session. There were no reports of damage. Frank McCulloch, city hall reporter covering the council session for the Reno Gazette, said the "jiggling" shock was accompanied by a slight rumble. At least 2 of the earlier tremors were "relatively sharp," he reported. The 2nd of the series "made our whole house creak, caused candles on our dinner table to sway violently, -and almost upset our Christmas tree," he related. The first noticeable tremor swung chandeliers and rattled doors and windows. See No Troop Strength Hike Claim Increase Is Virtually Impossible Washington, (U.R)—Military and diplomatic officials i n d i c a ted Tuesday that any immediate increase of American troop strength in Europe is virtually impossible. The issue was raised Monday when army secretary Kenneth C. Royall told newsmen in Berlin that officials in western Europe have asked this country to bolster its garrison in the European cold war zone. To such requests for more American troops, authorities here reply: "Where are we going to get them?" It is estimated the United States now has about 117,000 troops of all types in Germany, Austria and Trieste. Gen. J. Lawton Collins, army vice chief of staff, said Monday these forces are "in better shape to fight than at any time since the end of the war." However, actual American combat strength in Europe is unofficially placed at only one and a half divisions. If the proposed north Atlantic defense pact were put into force today, Britain France and the 3 Benelux countries could add an estimated 15 combat divisions. American military observers said even that force would be "in no way comparable" with soviet combat strength in Europe. Farm Women Plan Training Schools DCS Mo i nes, (U.R)—Farm housewives have one thing in common with their city sisters: A healthy dislike for washing dishes.

Truman Mum on Red Leaders Mentioned in Monday Speech Kansas City, (/P)—P resident Truman declined to elaborate Tuesday on his disclosure that "certain leaders" behind the Russian iron curtain are anxious to end the "cold war." Presidential Press Secretary Charles G. P.O-- told reporters Mr. Truman does not intend to name the men within the soviet government advocating an "understanding" with the United States. The president's surprise revelation in a luncheon speech Monday and his new indictment of the Russian government for blocking peace efforts spawned widespread speculation as to whether it heralded new moves on the diplomatic front. Ross said the president told him he had nothing to add to his off- the-cuff luncheon address before approximately 200 Missourians gathered to honor Eddie Jacobson, -^.v^x lu p 1C veiii u irom acci former partner of Mr. Truman in lating and possibly exploding a haberdashery store. 0: •"• " " The press secretary turned a deaf ear to all inquiries as to than 20,000 gallons of gasoline whether there was any informa- have been pumped from it But tion indicating a "revolt" within in the past 3 years the output has the top ranks of the Russian lead- dropped and officials now believe fivfH i »-\ j.^_ _ _ -I * . ^"-»*_.»_ ership. West Liberty Hit by Fire Blaze Destroys 4 Business Buildings West Liberty, (#•)—Fire Monday night destroyed 4 business establishments, drove 8 families out of their apartments and plunged a large part of this town of 1,800 into darkness as electric wires were burned through. Preliminary estimates placed the loss at approximately $150,000. The blaze was believed to have started in the basement of the 2 story brick building which houses the Louis Morris department store. Thig store includes grocery, meat, furniture and appliance sections. Housed in the same building was the drug store operated by Evans Morris and Dick Wellen, The department store,-the drug store and 9 apartments located on the 2nd floor were completely gutted as was the Rohner machine shop in 'the basement. The building itself was owned by Louis Morris and his sister Veneta Nolte of Wilton Junction. Night watchman Clarence Seeley said he believed the blaze was caused by an explosion in the basement of the Morris electric appliance store about 7:40 p. m. He said he was across the street from the building at that time and "saw a big puff in the basement of the refrigerator store." The blaze spread rapidly to the other establishments. A fire wall between the drug store and a newly-remodeled tavern prevented the spread of the blaze to other buildings in the business district. Say Welles' Condition Is Satisfactory Washington, (U.R)—Doctors kept vigilant watch over former undersecretary of state Sumner Welles Tuesday to determine if his all- night ordeal in the freezing cold will necessitate amputations. The 56-year old ex-diplomat suffered severe frostbite of the toes and fingers in his Christmas night mishap. The latest hospital bulletin said the "chief hazard" now is "possible complications from exposure." His condition otherwise was said to be satisfactory. Attending physicians had reported previously that they would be unable to determine for several days whether amputation of any fingers or toes would be necessary. (The Washington Times-Herald quoted unidentified physicians attending Welles as saying his long exposure to sub-freezing temperatures apparently had impaired circulation in his legs. Both may have to be amputated below the knees if more serious complications set in, the doctors were quoted as saying.) Welles was found unconscious and nearly frozen about 8 a. m. Sunday beside a brook more than a mile away from his home at nearby Oxon Hill, Md. He apparently had suffered a heart attack while on one of his customary nocturnal strolls. Faces Trial for Shooting 34 Years Ago Washington, (/P)— A man being 'icld in county jail here Tuesday may have to stand trial for a 1914 shooting.

Fetters, who las been at the Anamosa reformatory insane ward for several years, has been declared sane. Sheriff Putnam said Fetters was accused of shooting and killing Hugh Dougal, Sr., on Sept. 10, 1914. A Washington county grand jury indicted him on a first degree murder charge, but before he was orought to trial a jury ruled Fetters insane. Under Iowa Jaw, Fetters now may be tried on the murder charge, since he has been declared sane again.

Mysterious Gasoline Well Running Dry Fond Du Lac, Wis., (U.R)—A mysterious gasoline well in downtown Fond Du Lac is running dry after supplying fuel for the city'"s trucks for 10 years, officials said Tuesday. No one ever has been able to explain where the gasoline came from. But the refined, low-octane fuel was good enough for the city to mix with commercial gasoline and use in its trucks. City street department crews had to pump the well dry each week to prevent it from accumu- Since the well first sprang from nowhere, officials estimate more the well may go dry. Seats Still Available for Inaugural Parade Washington, (U.R) — Plenty of seats still are available for President Truman's inaugural parade.
