Ttie News, Fr«deric!t. Md., Monday, Noveiafor M. 19B1 Five Children Perish In Fire In Martinsburg MARTINSBURG, W. Va., Nov. 25, $)--A scorched baby doll and the charred skeleton of a tiny trailer home were among the few ruins left today by a fire that took the lives of five children. The mother, 38-year-old Mrs. Helen Price, who said she was browsing around in the city dump at the tune of the tragedy, was in a local hospital for treatment of shock. The victims were 2-year-old twins, Edward Vernon and Charles Ted: Josephine, 5; Robert Lee, 6; and Donald Eugene, 9. They died late yesterday after- Boon when a fire of undertermincd causes broke out in the 6 by 12 foot rented trailer where they lived with their mother. Locked Inside Officers and firemen who answered a neighbor's alarm found smoke seeping out of the trailer. They had to break down the door, which was bolted from the inside. Policeman Kenneth -Cushxva said the children were burned to a crisp in the gutted ruins. Firemen found one of the twins, Edward, clutching a doll baby against his chest. Under his charred body were several strike-anywhere matches, with the heads ignited. Firemen believes the blaze broke out so suddenly that the children did not have time to unlock the door and escape. Police said the oldest boy was a mute. Dr. G. O. Martin, Berkeley County Coroner, called a jury to look at the remains today. He said the jury would meet again Thursday, to reach its findings. The family had come here from Natural Bridge, Va, three months ago. Earl Martin Price, the husband, told police he had been separated from his wife about a month He has been working in an apple processing plant here. Father Is Silent Price was close-lipped about the catastrophe that wiped out the children in a few minutes He said it was "too bad," but didn't want to talk about it any more. Funeral services were set for Tuesday morning at a local funeral home. The trailer home was located off a highway east of Martinsburg. and overlooked a cemetery across the road.

Nov. 25--UP)-Premier Mohammed Mossadegh won a smashing vote of confidence, 90-0, today after a weeping appeal foe support. It was his firt visit to Parliament since he returned from the United States. The Majlis (lower house of parliament) obediently reversed its earlier decision to delay parliamentary elections until Dec. 18. Opposition Leader Jamal Imami was threatened with death and nearly mobbed by demonstrators outside Parliament for making a bitter speech against the old Premier. Mossadegh was cheered hysterically. Mossadegh, in his table-pounding speech, flayed the British. as usual, praised Americans in the cities he visited, and told the Majlis 1 1 He wanted national elections to the Majlis immediately for a bold test of his oil nationalization reg'tne among the people. 2. There would be no com- promise with the British on the oil question and the 19,000,000 Iranians must tighten their belts and wage a buttle of austerity with the British. 3. He failed to negotiate a settlement of the six-months-old oil dispute but Iranians must make a real effort to exploit and sell their oil. 4. Things look favorable for financial aid from the United States. Mossadegh takes his program tomorrow to the Senate where political fireworks are generally lacking. Fifteen Majlis members abstained on the vote of confidence, but Mossadegh had it almost entirely his own way. The only concession t the opposition jwas a 57-22 vote letting Imami sp%ik against the Premier. Imami took a half hour MARINE GENERAL DIES WASHINGTON, Nov. 25, (IP]-Brig. Gen. Harry B.
