Goodwin JoriixiUcm Four Jews wore reported killed today in sporadic outbursts in the area of all-Jewish Tel Aviv, raising the death toll 'in ten days of Palestine strife to 105. The Arab league announced In Cairo last night It was taking 1m- mcdlaLe'steps toward military and other action to aid Palestine Arabs in opposing the United Nations decision to partition the Holy Land. In Damascus, Syria, 'a "Palestine Liberation committee" declared it was sending into Palestine Arab volunteers trained In commando tactics. But tho fury of the Arab attacks In Palestine Itself appeared to be abating, Snipers Slay Two Two Jews' were reported slain by Arab snipers, but the other two deaths came In tho course of at- tacks on British armored cars, said by Jewish Nourccs to have bucn perpetrated by "dissident Jewish possibly the underground Stern group. In those attacks, gasoline bombs i wcro hurled at four armored and four other armored cars were fired upon in the Tel Aviv area. Police sprayed the streets with bul- lets. Several Jews were wounded, and two armored car commanders were hurt. Jews Flee Tel Aviv For a time, before the Arab attack was beaten off, wild panic gripped Tel Aviv and many residents fled their homes in blind fright.

Strikers in France Ordered Back to Jobs Paris Communist labor leaders gave every indication today that they intend to defy'a cabinet ultimatum ordering France's strikers to get back on the job by tomorrow or feel the militant wrath of their government. Bcnolt communist secretary general of the Gen- eral Confederation of Labor to which the ultimatum was deliver- ed last night, expressed extreme dls- Natl.sfacUon with tho terms of cabinet statement, offorlns bonuses and promises to tlic strikers. How- ever the confederation ordered strikers back to work. A projected public service work- ers "token" strike failed yesterday and was called off by leaders when only ten per cent of the workers obeyed the strike call: The main testing place was in the Paris sub- ways, where workers kept the service almost normal. Marshall Plan, Oust Franco, Plea of Welles and Mrs. F.R. Washington Prompt approval ol the full Marshall plan for European recovery together with "economic measures against Spain to hasten the overthrow of the Franco government" were called for today by Americans for Democratic Action.

Termed stabilization and reduc- tion of American prices, particu- larly those of foods, essential to success of the Marshall plan and declared that controls will be need- ed at home to prevent repetition Religious Class Case Taken Under Advisement Washington The Supreme court took under advisement today the contention of an Illinois pro- fessed atheist mother that religious education in public schools violates a constitutional guarantee against "establishment of religion" by law. Mrs. Vashtl McCollum, of a University of Illinois professor, contended that such Instruction runs counter to the first amend- ment and that when children of different faiths attend separate re- ligious classes It leads to anti- Semitism and anti-Catholic views in early childhood. The Champaign, DI., county school district, which defeated In the Il- linois court Mrs. McCollum's suit to prices on tho now virtually ex- hausted British loan of 1S4G. the A.D.A. statement include Sumner Welles, former un- der-secretary of state: Mrs. Frank- lin D.

A.D.A. declared that oven Jf the cost of Japanese occupation be added to the Marshall plan, the total will average slightly more than a ".substan- thclr decision. During the argument' by lawyers for Mrs. McCollum and the school board, Justice Jackson said the high court can consider only "the legal and constitutional question' and added: "Can a state commandeer stu- dents' give them back some of that time If they will study religion? Whether there are good or bad effects from this practice we can't consider." John L, Franklin, representing the school district, waved a quarter as ho declared that if religious teaching In the schools is hold un- constitutional "You must strike ouc 'In God we trust' from. millions of coins minted by the government.'
