As night fell jubilant crowds in this French-speaking Caribben capital plunged into wild and weird demonstrations which lasted into daylight. They danced to voodoo chants and shouted the national anthem.  Ominous portents of trouble emerged today with the appearance of a liberal civilian - led committee of public safety which refused to accept the dominance of the three-man junta. New outbursts of violence were reported.  Crowds were said to have put the torch to the residence of the former minister of information and police, Gootran Rouzier.  Business houses which had reopened their doors warily closed them again as the swelling crowd resumed looting.  Col. Frank LaVaud, one of the  are nice ones.  4v.

Will Moko Possible Efficient Service in Handling Growing Volume Here  Modern refuse collectors will be put into operation in Ada in the near future, members of the city board of commissioners announced Saturday. Two new modern, enclosed refuse bodies will take the place of the one open job that now collects city garbage.  Regular and better service is the goal being worked toward. The present service is unsatisfactory because of the increase in volume and the fact that only one truck is used to collect the refuse.  Delivery Uncertain  . The new collectors will be put m operation as soon as they are available. The orders are in, but the tune of delivery is uncertain, Mayor Guy Thrash said.  Garbage has increased from seven tons to 15 tons per day dur mg the past six months. The increase makes it impossible for garbage to be collected and haul-  trac a t Way under  present con-  The city will be unable to let a contract another year on the same basis as in the past.

Jan. 12.——.After a week-long strike of 1.500 truck drivers, St. Louis tonight faced a serious shortage of staple foodstuffs and meats.  Retail grocers reported their store shelves were nearly depleted of canned goods by housewives buying more than their customary Saturday market list rew stores had any stocks of canned baby foods.  Employes of the major meat packing plants have threatened a strike Wednesday over wage disputes. CIO packing house workers have called a strike for that day at Armour and Company's national stockyards plant and union employes of other plants have indicated they will join a walkout.  The city’s meat supply has been curtailed since Nov. 28 when drivers of Swift and Company s East St. Louis, 111., plant  and  stopped deliveries of 750,000 pounds of meat a week to retail outlets.  The truck drivers* strike cut off another 350,000 pounds a week shipped from packers to Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa. It leaves the city dependent on local packers and Armour’s.  The truckers are members of the AFL Teamsters and Chauffers union. The union voted today to permit one truck to make emergency deliveries of drugs and medecines to wholesale firms whose supples, including bottles.
