West Fork Resident Injured In Crash Mrs. Amy Curley, about 65, (it West Fork, suffered a fractured ankle about 9:30 this morning when the parked car in w h i r h she was sitting was struck by in other automobile on Highway 71 near West Fork. Mrs. Curley was taken to Ciiy Hospital in a Moore's ambulance. Her physician sold the fractured ankle represented her only major injury.

Vernor was not injured. with the conditions, to 'put it mildly. Teas presented the residents' case by asking a number of questions. What streets will be open in that area from north to south? he inquired. Mayor Powell M. Rhea. speaking for the Council, declared the city is endeavoring to persuade, the state Highway Department that some of the streets must be open, and is hopeful that at least Locust and Block will be open when the highway is completed. At present all the streets are closed while construction is under way. Mayor Rhea explained that efforts of the city to have all four streets open across the highway have been without result, but that it is believed Locust .-and Block will be opened. What are the cjty's plans to make it safe for children to cross the. new highway? Teas next asked. The city has informed the Highway Department of its desire to place traffic signal lights at the two intersections. Mayor Rhea said. The Highway Department has not authorized the installations, but has told the city a stud.\ of the situation will be made, anc the mayor said it is hoped the lights may be installed. Hand rails and steps will be placed up the fill alongside the highway for pedestrians to use, it was reported. Teas next asked. Don't you t h i n k the public has been less well informed than it. should have been regarding this bypass? The mayor said he believes that as the plans have been developed, they have been made known. He said that when the city learned the streets were to be closed, it started protesting .and is continuing its efforts to have the streets opened. Teas said, "I feel like we have been let down by the Council and the people have been taken advantage of. I feel that our rights have been trampled upon," He said olso'that he believes property values in the vicinity are down 50 per cent because of the highway construction, and that "if we had known what was going to happen we would have secured a restraining order if at nil possible. If any possible thing can be done we wouldn't leave a stone unturned to rectify as much as possible. Alderman Jack Burke told the visiting group that the Council for a long while did not know the streets were to be closed, but that since it has had this information city officials have pressed efforts to get. the streets open. He said he doesn't "feel the Council is to blame." It is something that came up and slapped us in the face." Teas replied by saying that the bypass "won't work--it will funnel traffic in front oE the courthouse until it will be pitiful." Suggests Legislative Action . J. C. Putnam, one of the group present, said that a real estate man told him yesterday that a prospective real estate buyer Steel Workers On Verge Of Leaving Jobs Commerce Department May Move In To Operate Industry Washing-ton - W) - The Commerce Department today was reported ready to operate the strike threatened steel industry in the event President Truman decides on government seizure. ; Officials gave this word to re- \ porters today on the heels of public disclosure the president has asked Secretary of Commerce Sawyer to interrupt a Midwestern tour and return here immediately. These officials, said seizure orders have been drafted for Truman's signature. Hopes in official quarters apparently had been all but abandoned for a settlement in the industry's wage dispute with the CIO Steelworkers Union. Howver, there apparently had been no definite decision to seize the ndustry. A spokesman for the Office of Defense Mobilization said Truman wanted Sawyer back to advise on Russell Sees Sure Strength At Convention nuci nvi CINTI Teacher Training Plan Proposed By Committee Washington -/P)- Sen.

About 100 WE employes were on strike, Breashear said. The company said 47 employes were on strike.

He suggested a remedy may be found in the state legislature and the United States Congress, with the passage of bills providing for opening of the streets.. "It can be done by legislative action," he declared. Among those who spoke were Everard Thrasher, Mrs. Frank Brown and R. A. Larrabee. They wanted to know how the state or the government can close streets without a vote of the property owners when it is impossible to close an alley in the city limits without passage of an ordinance. It was stated also that a downward revision in the assessed valuation of property in that vicinity i.-* called for since "property is worth less." Larrabee inquired as to the primary reason for the bypass, and " j striking workers of its affiliate, the Western Electric Company. Pickets appeared shortly after 6 a. m., at telephone exchanges in Cape Girardeau, Joplin, Carthage, Webb City and Neosho.

The industry already was partly closed down with furnaces and mills being gradually stopped in advance preparations for a walk-out. Charges Collusion In Pittsburgh, Ernest T. Weir board chairman of National Steel Corporation, charged "there must have been a deal between powers in the administration and labor leaders in which the labor leaders received assurance their demands would have support" in the 'current steel dispute. Weir, whose corporation cm- ploys about 32,000 workers, called for use of the Taft-Hartlcy act to avert the strike. ' Car Turns Over, Burns, Soldier Not Hurt Badly Sgt. Clyde E.
