Collapse of Building Kills Two Washington, Dec. 17 — (/P) —Firemen tunneling through tons of debris early today rescued a woman from the interior of a building whose collapse killed at least one persons and injured 11 others. Dr. William Claudy, fire department surgeon, said "I wouldn't be if there are five or six there." Guided by her cries, lircmen found the woman wedged in the ruins between the second and third floors. They dug her out nearly five hours after the collapse occurred. A section of the seven-story building's interior containing a dozen apartments fell with a roar shortly before midnight, plummeting timbers, plaster and room furnishings into the basement . The walls remained standing. Eight persons were quickly taken from ' the wreckage and three others followed al intervals during the night. Finlly firemen dug out the body of an unidentified man. Ernest Dorsey, 40, was definitelv reported missing and firemen said there might be others. Dorsey's brother Wilbur, who lives in another part of the city, was driving past the scene when he.saw fircinnn planing his 75-year- old mother, Mrs. Ella Dorsey, in an ambulance. Ho said she told .him Ernest was still inside. At emergency hospital the condition of Mrs. Lena Smith, 49, one of the first removed, was termed critical because of a possible skull fracture. The cause of the building collapse was not immediately determined. Only about one-fourth of the brick structure was affected. The elevator remained in service and some of the tenants used it to escape from the undamaged portion of the building. Nick Papanicolas, the owner, said he had about 150 tenants living in 37 apartments. He said the first floor was rcmodn'od re- •r , • -, . „ ., • LJll^ J.ii O I.

Bulletin Washington, Dec. 17— (If)— The Senate today passed by voice vote and sent to the House legislation to restore controls on consumer installment buying through March 15, 1949. o Crop Product-ion Report to Be Issued Washington, Dec. 17 —(IP)— The Agriculture Department issues today (2 p. m., C. S. T.) its final report of the year on 1947 crop production, expected to show that the volume of crons was about equal to the 1942-45 high wartime average. Little change was expected from production estimates issued a month ago. when the department said total output was indicated to be about 4.7 per cent below the 1946 peak. .Interest centered on 1he corn figure because the previous estimate indicatd th crop, which suf- fred from poor weather during the growing season, was 25 per cent smaller than last year's record production of 3,287,927,000 bushels. Officials said it was possible the corn estimate might be raised slightly. Any increase would help relieve the current grain shortage, which is forcing many farmers to curtail livestock production. Of more interest than today's report is another to be issued tomorrow giving the department's first forecast on the size of the winter wheat crop to be harvested next summer.

The Allis-Chalmers Company gave a special Each day we divided up for group discussions in small "huddles." Each club member got to express his or her own opinion. The 4-H talks and parties were good too and we had a panel discussion called the Battelof the Mike. The most popular topic on thio discussion was "What can we as 4-H members do to make Peace nior peaceful?" 4-H members contributed ?612.20 to buy food and clothing for European boys and girls. The boy, representing Europe, made a touching talk as he accepted the money for the European delegates. Trip to the Chicago Museum of National History and to the Industrial Livestock Exposition thrilled all of us. Maybe we thrilled Chica- goians when we had our 4-H Parade. The National winners followed the 4-H flag while the Star- Spangled Banner was being played. Each State followed its flag in alphabetical order and then the 10 foreign countries fell in line behind their respective flags. It was beautiful lo see all those flags and all those 4-H members as they marched into the arena and took their positions. This, my fifth all-expense 4-H trip, is the best trip I have had. The trips did not "just happen" has been with me ever since I am an old woman in my late seventies and I have to listen morning noon and night to the crying ot babies, so f have asked.them to move. But they refuse to do so. What can I do about it? A DESPERATE OLD MOTHER ANSWER: Practically nothing, I fear, for the housing shortage is not only a reality, it is an alibi for everybody's deadbeat friends and relatives to come and settle down upon them. Nobody's house is any longer his castle. It is just a place wnore people without decency and respect or the others' rights feel thav they.arc privileged to exercise squatters' rights and to sottl squatters down on the owners, who all the same under scalps, and you can get along with one color as well as another.

The war itself has brought about no more misery than these self- invited, unwanted guests who'have descended with their bag and baggage, their obstreperous children and howling babies, and their pet dogs and cats and parrots upon their helpless old parents, or their equally defenseless brothers and isters. Force Way In It has been nothing to these inter opers that in many cases they ha vc forced frail old women and men to give up their rooms because the baby needed a sunshiny place to play in; that they monopolized the dtchen and quarreled with their in-laws, and turned-a peaceful and quiet home into bedlam. But it seems impossible for the victims to help themselves. It is just another one of the horrors of luncheon lor the eight of us who won National honors in Gardening.

It was a funny choked sort of sound that made me look over my shoulder and there was Jimmy. Utter horror had wiped all youthfulness from his face. He stumbled like a drunken man as he lurched forward and tried to get through the ring of men who were carrying Avis. They laid her down on the side of the road, and one of the policemen ran to the cruiser and brought back a gray blanket and put it over her. "There's another one down there—but we can't get him out," one of the men said. "He's dead; o." Jimmy Peters quit trying to reach Avis. He staggered over and leld onto the broken guard railing, ie was deathly white. I went over o him quickly. "Jimmy—Jimmy. I had fixed for him, looked at me with dumb misery shining in his eyes, and then after a little he began to cry. In the tortured way that a man cries. I just' let him cry, sitting there beside him with my hand on hisi shoulder, patting it occasionally. And wanting desperately to comfort him—to tel him that she wasn't worth it. But, of course, I didn't. Because I knew he wasn't in love with the real Avis Vaughn—the Avis with the soft, beautiful body and the morals of a cat. He was in love with what he thought she was. With the image of her he had built up in his heart. And there wasn't anything I could do about that. After a while he quit sobbing. He; wiped his eyes with a damp handkerchief, blew his nose, and mumbled something about me being very decent. I patted his shoulder again. "That's all right, Jimmy." I remembered something else. "I should call Jeff—shouldn't I?" "Yes," Jimmy said. "You'd bet- m '. , TT 'J J " t J Ull lllla 13 XAWliJ. ,jwiln-l»t»«r. Take it easy, boy Here sit down ten . ible hag happoned .

"Put your arm around my shoulder— let's go up to my house. There's nothing we can do here." I led him away without anyone noticing in the living room I made him lie down on the davenport and went over to the bar to get him a drink. There wasn't a thing left.
