The bodies of James Roach, 42; his wife. Raechel, '10; their son James Jr., 17, and daughter. • Patricia, 10, were found last night in their south side apartment. Police Sgt. John Sullivan said the shootings occurred some lime Wednesday morning and thai investigation disclosed Roach had beaten and shot to death his wife and children, both high school students, while they slept. Sullivan said a .22 caliber rifle was found nAR Roach's body. Police said they found in the apartment in the South Shore district a note signed by Roach and addressed to his landlady in which he told of financial troubles. Roach formerly had been employed as a salesman, police said .but he had been unemployed for the last several weeks. The note read, in part: "Believe me. Rao (.Mrs. Roach) and the children did not realize this was Jiap- pening because the children were unconscious at the time. Rae was asleep and il happened to all but "The reason is, of course, finan- me while they were sleeping. . cial. We're just plain broke, and I can't face it: and if I just took myself Rae would try to carry on with the children and it would be a mess. As it was, we all lived to the hilt, while we lived — a short one maybe, but ahappy one." Mrs. Roach, the former Raechel James, was a former student at the University of Illinois, where she was a beauty contest winner for two successive years. Saturday, February, 23, 1946 CARN8VAL Bv Dick Turner M. BEcru!7rpAT. V QFF>-~ — ^- ./ "Am I gonna. have somc'fun ! I got a pass lo the. dog show!" This Curious World _ ByAVilliom Ferguson ~" ™ Anglo Riot Charged by Russians Moscow, Feb. 22 —(/P)— Bussian- ^anadian relations deteriorated further loday when Ihc official newspaper Izveslia charged in i\n editorial thai Prime Minister W.L Mackenzie King and British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcvin were trying "to undermine the growing international authority of the Soviel Union." Only yesterday, the Communist •jarty newspaper Pravcla criticized King for his statement that Canadian secrets had been ferreted aut by agents of a foreign mission. The Soviet Union announced that the Soviet military attache had ob- :ained some information in Canada, but that it was unimportant. Russia said her military attache had been recalled. Izvestia printed its editorial conspicuously ihis morning under a leadline reading: "Downfall of King, and His Friends." The editorial was broadcast over the Moscow radio on both domestic and foreign services. "The position taken by Bevin," ;he editorial asserled in reference .o the Briton's stand at the secur- ty council of the United Nations, "was. unalterably in contradiction :o democratic principles and .the principles of respect for the independence and rights of small peoples. ', "The consistent defense by the Soviet delegation of the principles of democracy and independence of small countries, and the proposal advanced by the Soviet delegation in accordance with those pririci- ales, aroused ' sharp opposition tojR,. JB&vUu .Such. : a,,, .posjtiqiv.;- ,,0f Bevin and his colleagues' at "'the assembly naturally could not but ail to create a negative altitude imong the broad democratic circles in various countries. "It was imperative thai help be lurried lo Bevin." The King slatement was declared intended for this purpose, 'lo disperse Ihe thick storm clouds, to detract attention from he breakdown and failures of Bev- n at the assembly, to smooth over he unpleasant impressions created by Bevin. "King took this task upon him- elf without shame in the selection of the means he employed — his inti-Soviet campaign, the main urn of which was to distract pubic opinion from the breakdown and failures of Ihe Brilish govern- nent at the United Nations assean- bly, and simultaneously lo undfcr- mine Ihc growing internalional authority of the Soviel Union." i The Izveslia editorial reiterated riany allegations made yesterday by Pravda and stressed the delicate nature of Russian-Canadian relations. King was criticized agani 'or making his statement without first asking the Soviet Union for an explanation.

And don't trouble to try doing anything about this terrible situation, cither, because the Committee says thai there not only is no defense now, but there ain't going "io be none, neither. Goodness, gracious, what's this world coining to? What's the use of trying, if we're predestined lo be blown or seared into unrecognized atoms—or maybe molecules or pro- Ions or neutrons?

But he has been spared one worry afflicting his countrymen in England — the housing shortage. This warrior-turned - diplomat dwells in one of (lie world's most resplendent palaces, a cozy lillle $4,000,000 place, with 140 offices and rooms lN 35 fountains, seven elevators, one and a half miles of corridors and a $300,000 telephone system. The viceroy's official residence is one of the showplaccs of Ihe New India and il is gorgeous enough to salisfy even Kubla Khan. Thn slyle is classic Greek with Indian details and the world famous ballroom has a colorful pcrsian scene painted by Ilaiian artists. Amid this sandstone and marble grandeur — there arc 227 columns or a hired man to lean on — Britain's one time "desert fox" live almost as simply as if he still were dueling with Rommel on the Libyan sands. Al 62, Wavell leads Ihe life of Ihe professional soldier who knows that one of his primary duties is to keep fit. His reward is thai he looks no nore than 55. He is stocky, an nch or two over medium i-.oight, vvilh gray hair and a mustache which his four young aides do camp and I finally agreed could best be described cropcd." crop Un as "close -'nlikc many American military men who give the impression thai hey are retired farmers when dressed in mutfi, Wavell stands up well in civilian clothing. He was dressed in a neat gray business suit he day I called. To inc. no was a kind of legendary hero. To him I was just another 20-minule stranger in a busy day. He was courteous and crisply ncndly.

Besides, I fell il unnecessary. The Indians already hold Ihc answer to their tangled future. The besl clue I had to Wavcll's character as lhal whenever we came lo a shortcut across the gardens he took il — walking across the Greensward in a straight line instead of following the roundabout cement paths. The most disillusioning thing about him was that he actually enjoys porridge. Wavell is .a many lalcnled man and lalkcd freely of his hobbies. His sludy floor is careted with skins of tigers he has shot. One desk in Ihe dark booklined room is covered with autographed photos of President Roosevelt, Churchill, Smuts and other world personalities and also holds his ceremonial swords. He has another work desk, bul rarely uses it, preferring to do his reading and paper work sland- ing up al an old-fashioned table by the window to take advantage of the natural light. He rises shortly after 6 a. m. and gets in an hour's brisk ride on one of his three cavalry mounts Seven, Snaffles and Brown Monk Three times a week he plays nine Holes of golf. He gave up lennis after he lost his left eye in the Ursl World War, but remains an excellenl hunter. He reads widely in history and biography, a few novels and fewer dective stories. He writes well himself. Presently he is skimming through an E. Pnillips Oppenheim tnnller on India which his aides objecl lo because il is described as a 'peacock shoot."

The strike was threatened by ~" ---— iru.? kl t i. CCJ LUI IUU U V city councilman Michael J. Quill president of the CIO Transport Workers Union, to enforce demands for exclusive bargaining rights and a riY age increase of $2 a day. The board of Iransporlalion was scheduled lo hold a hearing on the union demands tomorrow, but Mayor William O'Dwyer already has notified Quill that he "cannot and will not" grant the TWU exclusive bargaining rights. O Dwyer said he recognized the justice of the union's demands for a pay increase in view of Ihe higher cosl of living, but he emphasized lhat he was prevented by law from recognizing the union as sole bargaining agent for the transit workers. He based his stand on an opinion by corporation counsel John J Bennett who said that because the workers on the city-owned transit lines arc classed as civil service employes, il is against the law to grant the TWU exclusive bargaining rights. Although the strike is not scheduled until after midnight tomor- it was pointed out that O Dwyer's telegram to Murray con- stiluted a reply to the union's demand for collective bargaining rights and cleared the way for the walkout at any time. All members of the police department have been alerted for 12- hour duty as soon as the strike starts and Police Commissioner Arthur W. Wallander pushed preparations of his planning and coordinating bureau to meet any emergency caused by a walkout. City departmenl heads were looking through lists of employes for workers qualified to work on ihe Iransit lines. Plans-to use other city workers to operat the subway lines were assailed by the Communist party. Quill promised that the TWU would live up to its-contract with private transportation lines and keep Ihem running. He also promised adequate manpower to keep subway lines operating for necessary workers. However, he warned that the city's plan to use inexperienced city workers to operate the subway lines would result in the loss "of thousands of lives."

Dewey again took up his task of trying to bring the two sides together in an atmosphere of expressed disapproval on the part of Ihe union.
