PRICE THREE CENTS EEvrEMIMCB WINDSTORM DAMAGE AT MORGANTOWN Trees, Wires Down, Buildings Blown Over; Edinburg Gets Near Cloud-burst; Hottest Day Of Year Here, 94 Morgantown bore the brunt of the wind and Edinburg the burden of rain as a heavy storm swept over southern Johnson county late Sunday, causing considerable damage in fccattcred areas. At Morgantown, many large shade trees were blown down, others were scarred, utility service was temporarily disrupted and several buildings damaged by a high wind. Though wind was not so intense at j Edinburg, a 45-minute rain estimated to have dumped between two and three inches of precipitation on the town was recorded. Morgantown residents reported the windstorm swept across the south part of town with greater force than other sections. Streets were blocked with fallen trees and large limbs and utility J lines were down in a number places because of the wind.

In Franklin, only one-hundredth of an inch of precipitation fell during the evening, not enough to even dampen sidewalks beneath trees. The rain came as a climax to the hottest day of the season. The mer- cury reached 94 decrees at t he Franklin weather station to record a temperature four degrees warmer than the previous record for 1943. On Saturday, the previous record was broken when the temperature mounted to 92.

The thing that strikes you first and remains with you longest after you've left the Italian prisoner of war internment camp at Camp Atter-zury is the unmistakable fact that the prisoners are happy. There is nothing morose or arrogant about their attitude. They look as if they'd be pleased to make your acquaintance and have a nice long talk with you, if you could under- stand them and they could understand you. They sing and laugh and talk almost incessantly. We newsmen were allowed access to the camp a few hours after the army announced that prisoners of war were stationed at Atterbury. First, we visited the guest house, which looked just like a dayroom our own soliders use. There were rugs on the floor, red leather furniture, old hickory tables and chairs, floor lamps, stoves, ash trays and a desk for the chaplain. Dinner Was Delicious At 12 o'clock sharp we were escorted to a mess hall where we were served a delicious dinner prepared and served by prisoners of war wearing blue denim with a big "PW" marked on the shirt back. The meal may or may not have been typically Italian. But part of it was. After pitchers of steaming coffee were passed around, the waiter at our table brought in a couple of large bowls of Italian spaghetti. Later, big platters of stew were put on the table. The stew consisted of roast pork, roast potatoes and a celery salad mixed with mayonnaise. For dessert, there were canned pears. We ate at one end of the mess hall CITY COURT'S 200th FINE IN YEAR LEVIED 165-Day Record Nets $2,713 In Assessments, Of Which $1,000 Remains In City Coffers; Weekend Busy The 200th case since January 1 was tried in city court here Monday morning, Mrs. Pearl Moore, city clerk-treasurer, reporting a total of $2,713.90 in fines having been collected since that time. Since the city receives $5 docket fee from each case, Mrs. Moore said approximately $1,000 has now been added to the city's general fund from this source of revenue alone. All fines proper are turned over to the auditor of Johnson county. and all costs in addition to the usual docket fees are given to arresting officers. Two hundredth person to appear was Everett McClain, of Franklin, who had been arrested at 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon by Sheriff Russell Cochran and Chief of Police Lawson Sullivan on a cnarge of public intoxication. He was fined $10 and costs. $17, and given a 90-day suspended sentence at the state farm. Denies Being Drunk. Also arraigned in city court on Monday was Roe Wesley, 19, of Russell Springs, Ky.. who entered a plea of not guilty to a charge of public intoxication. Arrested at Greenwood and brought to jail at 8 o'clock Monday morning by Marshal Marion Duvall, his trial was set for 9 a.m., Tuesday. A 62-year-old Greenwood man.

D. Dorrell. in which a large group of prisoners were served at tlie same time. The prisoners seemed to be exhibiting as much interest in us as we were showing in them. On at least one occasion, PW leaders, observing that many of the prisoners were turning completely around in their seats to watch us, barked commands for the boys to resume eating and pay less attention to what was going on behind them. 53 Details Operating For three hours after lunch, we observed the prisoners at work and at play. During our visit, many of the prisoners were busy on work details. We were told that 53 work details, were in operation that day on the Post alone. We observed one detail at work eliminating a scrap lumber pile, termed a fire hazard and orderd removed. Photographers in our group took pictures of men working with rakes on a burning dump and others hcisting grubbed stumps on an army truck with an army windlass. Another detail was at work setting out tomato plants in a 50-acre "Victory Garden" which will produce supplementary rations for the prisoners. We went through a dispensary (Continued on Page Two.) WAR PRISONER CAMP, BUILT FOR 3,000, HOUSES HAPPY ITALIANS Far away from their native land, till the soil in a Victory Garden held in trust They're Treated Like We Hope Our Boys In Enemy Hands Are Treated This story was written the afternoon of Saturday. June 5. by Boyd Gill of The. Evening Star staff, who was one of seven reporters touring the internment camp that day. The story was cleared, as required, through the War Department of Public Relations in Washington. It's no secret anymore that tnere is an internment camp for prisoners of war at Camp Atterbury. Italian prisoners of war are interned here. A few hours after the army headquarters in Washington announced that 36,688 enemy prisoners Of war are now being held in this country, newspapermen and photographers were invited to Atterbury for a six-hour tour of the internment camp. Built to accommodate 3,000 war prisoners, the internment camp is situated in the west section of the military reservation, well apart f rom ! the cantonment in which American soldiers live and train. The buildings are similar in construction and design to those our own soldiers have, but are pale green in color in contrast to the white and cream colors of the army buildings. Col. John L. Gammell, lommander of the internment camp by virtue of his being commanding officer of the 1537th Service Unit which serves as j the escort guard for the internment I camp, said there are no commissicn- i ed officers among the prisoners , here. I "Several" In Hospital Several of the Italians are in the Italians are strong on starcny foods Station Hospital, having been taken such as spanetti and bread. They there immediately upon arrival. Theidolvt care much for vcgeta51es and remainder are healthy, sun-tanned iboys and men who leave the impression of being unusually happy anu u'uitin iui me laci. wwi me are out ol action lor tne duration The camp is organized as a regi- ment of three battalions of five companies each. Each battalion is composed of one escort guard company and four PW (Prisoner of War) companies. The escort guard i li i ici 1 1 , ui luuicc, ail nuicilLaii army unit. The PW companies are made up of the prisoners themselves, t The PWs have one regimental leader, three battalion leaders and twelve company leaders. The leaders are the intermediaries between the army and the prisoners. Leaders are apointed by the camp commander according to relative rank. All leaders are non-commissioned officers and are known as sergent mag-giore, sergents, corporale maggiore and corporale. Another Ready To Go In the Atterbury internment camp, two battalions already have been set up and another is ready to go when additional prisoners of war are dispatched here. On arrival at Camp Atterbury, regardless of time of day or night, all sick and wounded are rushed to the Post Hospital. All the other prisoners of war are marched to the Internment camp where they are searched, examined physically, given a shower bath, fed a good meal and mtn auuwcu iu me next, aay they are processed. Each individual si interviewed relative to his name, age, date of capture, grade in the army, civilian occupation, name and address of nearest relative, army, cccuption and serial number. He is then issued individual equipment and assigned to a company for work duty. Before the newsmen were admitted to the internment camp. Col. Welton M. Modisette, Atterbury Post commander and also commander of the internment camp by virtue of his position on the Post, emphasized the fact that prisoners of war here are treated not as criminal prisoners these ItaJian prisoers, under watchful eye of helmeted Yank guard, at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. Prisoners are paid, bulk of money being by U. S. to be turned over to them when war ends. but just as though they were captured American soldiers. Hope For Like Treatment They are subject to the same requirements relative to custom and courtesies as the soldiers of the Uni'ed States Army, and to the same disciplinary action when necessary. "They are in a position that a lot of our soldiers might be," said Col. Modisette. "We hope that by adhering to the Geneva rules we can expect in return for our soldiers held prisoner by enemy nations to be treated likewise." Immediately after a prisoner of war arrives in camp he is given a basic course, which for the most part includes courtesies and English. This course includes training in recognizing the National Anthem, "To the Colors," bugle calls, and insignia of rank; understanding and executing commands. Get Same Food Ration Most of the commands are simple oncS such as "halt," "attention," "at ease," "forward march,' etc., but one command the prisoners are taught is "same thing." This command is used whcn il Ls desired that a pris nnpr nh.pv o wrhai nrHpr hirh tho person issuing cannot express in the i such as sculpturing language of the prisoner but can j and masonry.

DONOR FILM IS FEATURE Activities Of Red Cross And Local Chapter To Highlight Annual Meeting Tuesday A filb on blood doner service will be one of the highlights of the annual meeting of the Johnson County Chapter of the P.ed Cross in the Pesbyterian church chapel here at 8 o'clrck Tuesday evening. The film, which will show the use cf the plasma derived from blood such as is given locally when the mobile unit comes to Franklin is expected to hold considerable interest not enly for those who have given biood here, but for others as well. A picture of the entire Red Cross r.vogram will be given briefly during the meeting. Miss Mary Koch, j home service chairnan, and Miss j Louise Schoepfel, executive secre- tary, will demonstrate two types cf home service interviews. Reports of chapter accomplishments will be given by other Red Cross workers. The Rev. Richard E. Lentz, county chapter chairman, will preside. The meeting will include the annual election of officers. Preceding the public meeting, to which mere than 6,000 Johnson county persons who contributed $1 or more to the last Red Cross fund raising campaign are invited, a dinner for members of the executive committee will be held at 6 o'clock si Snyder c dining rocui. Italians Eat the Grapefruit's Rind The "human interest" angles of the internment camp for Italian prisoners of war at CampAtterbury are many and varied- The Italian prisoners prefer fruits and flour dishes to meats and vegetables. They leave hardly any garbage. For instance, when eating grapefruit, they eat rind and all. At a conference between the leaders and the camp commander, the prisoners' only complaint was that the guards should not carry arms, as they were content to stay in cap-tlvity Lawn mowers were a novelty to the prisoners. They actually expressed a personal desire to be employed on lawn mowing work. The prisoners are fond of singing and often sing while marching to and from work. Strange to relate, one of their favorite marching songs is "Beer Barrell Polka," sung in Italian. me prisoners are laieniea in ! India. They believed that Indiana j as a part of India. j Some expressed wonder at how i New York City oould have been 1 rebuilt so quickly. They had been ! under the impression that New York had been destroyed by bombs. i When asked what they desired to be put in stock in their canteens they were unanimous in requesting suspenders, hair oil, hair tonic, facial creams and hand lotions- The prisoners have one characteristic common to the American soldier. They all expressed a desire to have juke boxes placed in their canteens and radios and victrolas in their clubrooms. 2 Local Inductees To Camp Robinson Two Johnson county Army inductees have been recently sent to Camn R.nhillsnn Ark anri Viavo lvori i assigned to the Medical Replace ment Training Center for eleven weeks' training. They are Pvt. Daryl Miller, 350 West Adams street, Franklin, and Pvt. Otto J. Sloop, Providence. THREE MOTIONS FOR NEW TRIALS FACE JUDGE IN CIRCUIT COURT Judge Grant Rogers today had before him at least three motions for new trials. One was filed Saturday, and another Monday, in addition to the motion now pending in the criminal case of William B. Dickinson, who is seeking a new trial following his conviction by a jury here of a charge of second degree mur- der. The two newest motions are in civil cases, however. Defendants in the claim case of Gertrude Dorrell vs. the estate of Lucy Surface filed a motion for a second trial. A jury on May 13 found for the claimant in the sum of $2,500. A new trial also is sought in the case of Dessie Grose vs. Denzil Pad-d&ck and Denzil L. Paddack, to resist probate of the will of Rcsetta Paddack. A short time ago. Special Judge Ivory J. Drybread ruled that probate of the will be refused since it wras not the valid will of Mrs. Paddack that was offered for probate. Dickinson Hearing Saturday.

The debatable theory that it may be possible to bomb Germany, Italy and even Japan out of the war with an absolute minimum of Allied casualties was given unusual encouragement today. While aerial warfare again dominated the picture, with telling new raids on continental Europe, the Mediterranean islands and enemy abases in the Far East, Air Vice Mar DEATH TAKES REV. BEALL Smith's Valley U. B. Minister Dies In Hospital After 43 Years As Clergyman Rites will be conducted at 9 o'clock Tuesday morning at the late home in Smith's Valley for the Rev.

Dr. Cady was not on the summer school faculty here and it is presumed he will return to the campus this fall. He has been professor of history at Franklin College since 1930 and dean since 1938. Prior to his connection with Franklin, he taught at the University of Maine, at the University of Pennsylvania where he took his doctor's degree in 1929, and at Marshall College in West Virginia. the two civil suit motions have been set, but an oral hearing in the Dickinson case is scheduled to be held Saturday, June 19. Three divorces were granted in Johnson Circuit court Saturday. Bessie Dillman was granted a divorce from Ralph Dillman; Adell Noel was granted a divorce from Ray Noel, and Stella Hardin was granted freedom from Frank Hardin. The court found for the plaintiff in the civil suit of Nellie H. Casey vs. Jacob Tresslar and others, to quiet title. A suit on contract, that cf the Universal Credit Company vs. Al bert L. Kinnick. was dismissed by the plaintiff OF WAR shal George Jones, commodore of the Royal Australian air force, threw in his lot with those who believe that air power in sufficient force can bomb the enemy into subjection. Sicily was the main object of the attack in the Mediterranean and the German Rhineland again felt ! the heavy weight of Royal Air Force bombings. But Commodore Jones, in his first public statement on the world outlook, went far beyond these immediate objectives to see Germany and Italy blasted into quivering surrender and Japan's sea lines cut from tlie air, starving the home islands and leaving those on the Pacific fringe to rot into submission. The Australian air chief, of course, may have been speaking in the flush of aerial optimism that followed -""ac U1 rd"lc""ia' impc-uusa and tiny Linosa between Tunisia . ... t jBnd Sicily in the Mediterranean. But !he stands at pivot of an even i vaster theater cf operations the Pacific and his words should carry 1 1 . t nnAf1Ai- T ...! i c 6UU Only 40 Casualties The subjugation of Pantelleria after 19 days of incessant bombing and the collapse of two sattellite islands which followed comprise a classic example of modern aerial warfare. It confirms to an asontish-ing degree the strtaegy so long favored by Gen. Douglas Mac Arthur and his Pacific Air Chief, Ueut. Gen-George C. Kenney. Official estimates place allied casualties In the capture of all three islands at only 40 men, the crews of half a dozen planes shot down in combat. Never in history have valued military prizes been taken at such infinitesimal cost. I The aerial campaign meanwhile, went on apace. Giant Liberators of Recovers After She Eats Aspirin Tablets The small daughter of Mr. a n rl Mrs. Iris Hougland apparently had fully recovered today from the experience of eating a quantity of aspirins which she found in a bottle at her home on Hamilton avenue. The girl, who is believed to have eaten four tablets, was taken to the office of Dr. A. W. Records and later removed to Methodist hospital in Indianapolis, from where she was released a short time later. Atterbury Dog on List as "Missing" City police were notified by the Corps of Military Police, 1560th Service Unit, at Camp Atterbury, tcday to be on the lookout for a German shepherd war dog, which broke away from the camp during the weekend.
