MacArthur's ouster voted today that Gen. Omar N. Bradley need not disclose what President Truman said in secret about the Far Eastern five days before he was fired. Thc unofficially as 18 to 8 removed any pos- sibility of contempt action against the five-star chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It did nut cool senatorial tem- ers heated by three days of lolitical wrangling. Chairman Richard B. Russell, Ga., of I he Senate Armed Ser- Three Killed In CriKR VI lltfll BUCKEYE. May farm workers were killed instantly today and a fourth was critically Injured when their automobile and a Southern Pacific passenger train collided at a crossing two miles west of here. The car, a ID-IB sedan, was de- molished. The engine was damag ted slightly but proceeded into Phoenix under its own power. The train was en route'from 'Los An gcles to New Orleans. Buckeye Coroner Billy Meek identified two of the dead us Jose Lenzo, '50, Arlington, the driver, and Stephen Pablo, agi and address unknown. The third was not immediately identified. The fourth occupant of the cai was taken to Marlcopa County hos in Phoenix where his condi "tion was listed as critical. Investigating- officers were un able to identify him. Meek said the. collision occurro about 5 a.m. when the automobil Jailed to stop at the crossing. On of the victims was pinned in the wreckage and. the others were thrown 30-feet by the impact. Meek said R. W. Beene, Tucson, the train engineer, told him the car. approached the tracks about miles an hour and appeared ready to stop. Beene said the train was traveling 75 miles an hour. Forty feet from the crossing, he said, he realized the vehicle was not going to stop and applied the brakes. Meek said there would be no in- quest. Relations Commit ee, citing historic precedents and rulings, had defended Brad- ey. iresident's confidences, Russell said, would have been a blow at the "security of our country." The chairman inittee quarrel said had the coin- developed Air Force Planes Fly Over Yuma Armed Forces Day The sky over Arizona will echo like that of a. giant airdrome Sat- urday, May observance of the 'second Armed Forces Day. The gigantic fly-over will take in almost every city and hamlet in the whole state. Taking part.in the aerial parade will be B-50s from Davis-Monthan AFB, Tuc- "aon, Arizona, F-80s from Williams AFB, Chandler, Arizona, and the sleek F-84 Thunderjets from re cently reactivated Luke AFB Phoenix. Ariz. This will be one of the greates aerial reviews that has ever been witnessed by residents of the Cop per State. At 10 a.m. the aircraft, wil rendezvous over Tucson. Fron there they will proceed on thci; .Jong route over the State. The B-50s' route will be Tucson Phoenix, Prescott, Wlnslow. Wil Hams, Flagstaff, Blyth, Yuma Ajo. Nogales, Douglas, and the back to Davis-Monthan AFB, Tuc- son. Two flights of F-8'ls will leave Luke AFB, at 10 a.m. and will proceed over the following two routes. From Luke AFB to Pres- cott, Williams. Scligman, King- man, Topoc, Vidal, and return to fcLukc. The second flight of F-8is will 'along party lines" and that he regretted the ''puiiticiii overtone." Russell's statement angered Sen. Alexander Wiley, Wis., whose questioning raised the issue. He tnld the chairman he "resents" the charge that he was politically motivated. Wiley said that in demanding' testimony about the April 6 White House conference which preceded MacArthur's recall he sought only to "maintain thc dignity and thc power of the Senate." Asserting that the Administra- tion has no right to withhold any information needed by Congress. Wiley told committee members the question before them was whether they are "mice or men.' The sipinWili' Interrupted Broclley's testimony on Tues- day after lie had told the com- mittee that lie ami the joint Chiefs of Staff on military grounds, unanimously approved Mr. Tnmtan'H derision to fire MiU'Arthur. When it became apparent that he committee could not remove Is procedural quarrel yesterday, Bradley was excused from further estimony until Monday. Russell had ruled that Bradley need not answer Wiley's ques- ions about the private talks and Viley had appealed his decision. Wiley asserted that the senate's 'dignity (and) power" were at stake. He said no government of- 'icial has the power to "shut off" nformation that Congress needs. When a witness persists in re- using answers "ordered" by a committee, the usual procedure is .0 cite him for contempt of con- gress. But Republicans generally admitted they didn't have, the votes to overrule Russell. Yuma Needs the Panthers (AS KIMTOKIAI.) CATURDAY will be Baseball Day in Yuma. and it dc- serves widest possible support from everyone who lias Yuma's welfare and future development at heart. Baseball Day has been proclaimed in order that the Yuma area can give financial supixjrt to a worthy and important community Yuma Panthers baseball team. The Panthers are in financial difficulties and will not be able to finish the current season unless they receive help immediately. To make it easy for the community to extend this needed financial the Yuma County Sports Association is launching a one-day advanced ticket sale, on Saturday. Books of ten tickets are being sold for 57.50 each. At least of these books must be sold, If the Campaign is to be a success. The ten tickets are good for any remaining Panther home games, so that every purchaser will receive lull value for the money he invests in the campaign. This is not a campaign for donations or gifts. Aside from the fact that organized baseball fills a long-felt recreational and entertainment need in this com- munity, the existence of the Panthers is important to Yuma in other ways. First of all, it keeps Yuma "on the map" in the minds of hundreds of thousands of fans who are devoted to the Great American Game. It gives Yuma a certain stature among cities where organized baseball has its homes. It is a form of prestige that cannot be purchased any other way. Secondly, the existence of the Panthers is the most Important single reason for maintaining the city-owned Panther Park as a baseball that park it- self has already brought the San Diego Padres here for Spring training and undoubtedly will attract major league teams from the East in future years. The effect of this one factor, alone, is worth all the effort and support this community can exert. The value of having a big league baseball team come to Yuma for Spring training can hard- ly be assessed, but. it. is a well known fact that cities throughout the warmer areas of the U. S. are fighting to attract a team. Few of them, however, are as well quali- fied as Yuma from the standpoint of climate. And now, since organization of the Panthers has made possible an excellent ball park, there is no reason to believe that Yuma will not soon host a big league club. Yuma would' be foolish, at this point, to allow the Panthers to fail because of lack of support.

"The Senate and the House of Malik said, "have hastily and with an extra- ordinary procedure adopted a de- cision designed to help the ag- gressive quarters of the U.
