Although the Americans had asked for police protection, only one policeman was on hand.

LOUIS XP The St. Louis Post-Dispatch today said it had learned an investigation had produced evidence of sabotage in last j week's explosion at a huge Joppa, III., power unit built to supply electric power lo the atomic energy plant al. Paducah. Ky. The newspaper said an inquiry, I held by Federal Bureau of Investigation agenls, showed that saboteurs dumped 40 pieces of iron into the power unit, jamming the niecltanism and setting off a blast in pulverized coal. No one was injured in Ihe ex! plosion, which occurred at midnight April 10. Turner White Jr.. in charge of plant operations, was quoted by the newspaper as saying "there is absolutely no doubt it was sabo- ! lage." The Post - Dispatch also i quoted White as slating FBI agents have flally asserted the plant was sabotaged. J. \V. McAfee, president of Union Electric, one of five power com! panics which own the power plant ; as Electric Energy, Inc., was quoted as saying it. was sabotage "beyond question." He estimated damage at the plant from $50,000 to $100.000. The Joppa plant is located about 1_T) miles soul beast of St. Louis across the Ohio River from Paducah. The power unit had been in operation only four hours when the explosion occurred. By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD /P TV viewers this week saw signs of a break in the film industry's backlog of old movies. That doesn't mean you'll be seeing "Gone With the Wind" or "Samson and Delilah" in your living room in the near future. But it could happen in a few years. The news came in thc annual report to stockholders of 20th Century-Fox. The report foresaw "millions of dollars" resulting from the possible release of the company's 900 films made since the advent of sound. "With the... advent of cinema- scope and other new lechniques, it is anticipated that the theater demand for motion pictures will be generally for pictures of the new types." it continued. "The demand for the older pictures will greatly decrease for theV atcrs. Therefore it is likely these older pictures will then be made available for television." This announcement created a stir in the film industry and on Wall Street. It was the first time a major studio had indicated it might release its oldies to TV. Movies have become increasingly important in TV programming. With live show costs mounting to new highs, stations are seeking more movies to telecast. They are relatively cheap, provide varied entertainment and draw good audience ratings. Eisenhower Names Hyde FCC Head AUGUSTA, Ga. /p — President Eisenhower today appointed Rosel H.

Hodge said today he would seek state law changes to give his office more supervisory power over the 133 million dollar assets of Illinois credit unions. His views were read to the Illinois Credit Union League by a staff assistant. William L. Day.

By The Associated Press Spring storms, some of the winter variety, hit wide areas of the country from Ihe Rockies to New York today. There was all kinds of bad weather. There uere snow, sleet, hail, wind and dust storms. There was some cold weather too. Chilly wcalher was in prospect for some southern states. Forest fires, fanned by stiff winds, swept over thousands of acres of timber land in national parks in New Mexico and Arizona. Some spots had fairly mild spring weather — m most of the South and in the Far Southwest. A band of precipitation 200 to 300 miles wide extended from South Central Kansas and Eastern Oklahoma across the Ohio Valley, parts of Illinois and Indiana, most of Ohio and into Northern Pennsylvania and Western and Southern Newt York. Sleet Hits Illinois Sleet and thunderstorms hit the areas from Oklahoma to Illinois and Indiana. There was rain or snow or a mixture in the rest of the storm-swept region. Strong winds, with gusts up to 40 to 50 miles an hour, swept Southeastern Kansas and most of Oklahoma. Snow accumulating from three to six inches was forecast for Pennsylvania and New York state areas with up to eight inches in the mountains in Pennsylvania. Snow fell in Eastern Colorado and Northwestern Kansas while a mixture of light, rain and snow hit sections of Utah and Wyoming. Snow flurries fell in the Great Lakes region and light snow was predicted for as far south as Southern Illinois.* Livestock Threatened Ranchers in parts of Colorado and __ Wyoming were advised to move their livestock under cover as snow up to seven inches in Big Piney, Wyo., hit the sections of the two states. \ Skies generally were clear in the Northern Plains and the Upper Mississippi Valley, but it was cold. Temperatures early today were far below freezing. The cold air moved southeastward and was expected to extend into Kentucky and most of Tennessee tonight. More than 1,000 men fought forest fires which swept through 13,400 acres in the Lincoln National Forest in Southern New Mexico with damages estimated at $804,000. About 2,000 acres of timberland were burned over in Ihe Coronado National Forest in Eastern Arizona. the long" range facts, and a general public acceptance of the implications of the proposed course of action."

Hitti, chairman of the department of Oriential languages and literatures, Princeton University. Both said that while the Zionist point of view is well represented in the United States and the problems of Israeli'generally understood, there is comparatively little understanding of Ihe history, resources and problems of the other Middle Eastern countries. Economic Aspects Economic aspects of the Middle East situation were discussed by William G. Hetherington, Newark News foreign corrspondent, and Edwin Milton Wright, officer in charge of Turkish affairs in the Department of State. They agreed that the economic basis of the United States interest is fundamentally the oil, and our interest in other phases is based on the need for keeping the Middle East oil resources available to, and preferably somewhat under the control of, United States and its allies. This naturally implies protection of these interests from Moscow's control through both the oil- rich peoples and their geographic, political and racial neighbors who are thought of in varying degrees as "poor" or "sick" relatives. This aid—whatever form it takes- must be utilized through the efforts of the Middle Eastern peoples themselves. Lt. Col. Thomas Camp Jr. chief of the Middle East and Africa section of the office of the army chief of staff, said: "Middle Eastern defense is impossible without the caoperation of received plaques of appreciation for their service to the district, and | all unit leaders received certifi- \ catcs of appreciation.

K — Two gas pipeline explosions rocked this East Texas oil center Friday, burned a large area into fine ash and sent an elderly couple to a hospital. A district superintendent of United Gas Company, owner of the lines, said he was unable to estimate the damage caused by the blasts. The flames consumed several nearby barns and damaged a residence, Fire Chief L. D. Honeycutt said, melted everything of metal within 100 yards of two pipe line breaks, and burned into a fine powder about one acre of land surrounding the blaze. W. W.
