Winni- peg-bound Greyhound bus plowed into a halted semi-trailer transport truck just before dawn today kill- ing eight persons and injuring 20 others, some seriously. The big bus, sheared open like a tin can, spewed dead and injured on the highway. Pas'sengers in the first half-dozen rows of seats took the brunt of the terrific impact Some where hulred 50 feet down the road. Some bus seats were rip- ped loose and tossed 60 feet. Shat- tered crates of farm machinery parts from the truck littered the road. First of the dead to be positive- ly identified were Louis Nathan. Roseman of Minneapolis, Mrs. Dor- othy Bundy and her daughter, Ze- na, about 12, Scottish immigrants, and Bert Miller, about 18, Winni- peg. Straight Stretch A flat tire had halted the semi- trailer truck on a straight stretch, of highway about 14 miles south of Winnipeg. Benny Rymer, Win- nipeg, its driver, told newsmen he had pulled the truck to the edge of the road, placed warning flares and had just started to change the tire when the bus crashed. Rymer es- caped injury. One of the dead hurled to the pavement was Zena Bundy. Anoth- er passenger, Rifleman George Doyle of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles, was trapped in the wreckage be- tween two bodies for two hours be- fore he could be freed with acety- lene torches.

Plan Fight on Floor Eisenhower's forces loudly anc repeatedly declared their determin- ation to carry to the convention's Credentials Committee and to the convention floor the fights for dele- gates they lose before the national committee. In the final analysis, it's the con- vention itself which can rule on which of two more groups of would be delegates shall be seated. And the way the convention votes may give an early tipoff on whether Eisenhower or Taft is in the lead. For all the conflict between its two top contenders the GOP seemed to be getting somewhere on a platform for the winner to run on. Sen.

The 'court dented his motion on June 15, 1950, and week later the court certified cer- tain questions of law as "import-, ant and doubtful."
