The new outbreak of terrorism spreading throughout Palestine came after a wild night in Haifa when nine Jews were killed in a pitched battle after they attacked the central railroad shops. The deaths during gunfire and 15 explosions at the railway yards raised the toll in recent days to 18 deaths. The informant reporting the kidnapping at Tel Aviv said the bandit*; were oelieved to be members of the Jewish extremist organization, Irgun Zvai Leumi. The British officers were believed seized as hostages against the impending execution of two Irgun members, sentenced to death last week for participating in a raid last March on a British army camp. Officers May Be Fliers The dozen terrorists raided the hotel Yarkon. which has been a leading officers club in Tel Aviv for several years. Their victims were blindfolded and forced into taxicabs, the informant said. (The British war office in London expressed surprise when informed of the reported kidnap ping, asserting that “this is the first we have heard of it.” (Reuters reported from Tel A-viv that the British Sixth airborne division was scouring the city for the kidnappers and their victims, reported to be fliers. (The Agency said two British soldiers were seriously wounded in Jerusalem when attackers fired from a passing taxicab). • Tried to Bomb Trains The underground Jewish radio said at the week-end some countermeasure would be taken against the death sentences imposed on the Irgun members by a military court in Jerusalem. While the battle of the Haifa rail yards proceeded last night, two unsuccessful attempts were made to bomb trains and halt them. Palestine police said the engineer of a train between Haifa and Lvdda ignored a red flag waved on the tracks two miles north of Lydda. Shots rattled around the cars but no casualties were sustained. Mine Tears Up Track Others reports said a land mine exploded near Khanyunis, between Gaza and the Egyptian border frontier in the south, just after an oil train passed. Reports said the rails were repaired and service on the Lvdda-Kanatara main line to Egypt was not interrupted. Latest advices from Haifa said trie railway shops and a powerhouse were destroyed last night. A locomotive was ruined. Police continued to cordon off the area of the battle.

Tornado Hits Detroit Area, Many Killed % ’ River Rouge, Mick., Struck First, Sandwich, Ontario, It Flattened DETROIT, June 18.—UP)—A freak June tornado struck Vici oujly Monday night into southern Michigan and adjacent Ontario. Canada, and left behind today a death toll of et least 17 and more than IOO injured. Searching parties hunted through a one-hundred foot path of devastation in Canada for possible additional victims. The identified dead totaled 13, but hospitals in the Windsor area reported at least “seven or eight” other victims critically injured and near death. The search through the debris began at the first streak of dawn less than 12 hours after the twist er roared across the Detroit river and into a sparsely settled rural area near Windsor. River Rouge, Mich., a Detroit suburb and home of the huge Ford Motor company Rouge plant, sustained the first shock of the Tornado shortly after 6 p.m., but tiny Sandwich Ont., bore the full fury of the blast. Canadian authorities listed 13 identified dead while four were known dead on the American side. The dealh toll was expected to increase sharply as searching parties began at daybreak the gruesome task of searching the tangled ruins left in the wake of the “twister.” Property damage was expected to run into the millions of dollars. Many Left Homeless Hundreds of persons were homeless as the wind toppled their homes like so many straws. Business establishments were wrecked, autos tossed about like playthings and bodies of the victims were buffeted as the tornado reached its zenith. The tornado, climaxing two days of violent rainstorms in the area, struck without warning. Scores of residents of populous River Rouge were at their supper tables when it hit. The Fisher low cost housing project was first to feel the fury of the tornado which leveled IO of the 546 units and caused severe damage to others. ' Fires Add To Panic At least 15 project residents were injured as the wind ripped buildings as if they were made of paper. Several small fires broke out, adding to the panic. The tornado, which weather bureau officials said traveled more than 250 miles an hour, tore on through the business district of populous River Rouge, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. It then zoomed across the Detroit river, the suction of the tornado creating four huge waterspouts. Coast guardsmen said that as far as they knew, no boats had been damaged by the huge freaks of nature. The terrifying funnel, estimated variously at from 20 to IOO feet at its base, sucked nearly everything in a 100-yard swath into its fatal grip. Ten Minutes of Havoc Sandwich West, Sandwich East and the outskirts of Windsor were the Canadian communities which recoiled under the full blast of the tornado before it headed for Lake St. Clair, where the weather bureau said it dissipated. The weatherman said the tornado ran its course in about IO minutes. But as the yellowish mass disappeared, both American and Canadian residents began to rea- £    extent    of the disaster. Detroit hospitals were hardpressed to handle seemingly endless streams of injured, many of whom were discharged after first aid treatment without their names being recorded. Compromise in Making Now On Reparations Italians Must Pay By JOSEPH DYNAN PARIS, June 18,    —A    comp romise between Russia and the western powers on the question of Italian reparations appeared in the making today as the Big Four foreign ministers turned their attention to the *um which Italy must pay for joining with the nazis in waging war. A more lenient Russian attitude toward Italy, apparent in yesterday’s discussions of minor economic phases of the Italian peace treaty, gave rise to hopes that the reparations issue might be settled. Would Make Burden Light Reparations, along with the future of the port of Trieste and the disposition of Italian colonies. were a principal stumbling block which prevented the ministers from reaching any major agreements at their meeting here last month. American informants quoted Russian Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov as saying during the discussions yesterday that he wanted to make the burden on the Italian people as light as possible. At another phase in the debate Molotov sought to place a ceiling on the total damages Italy might be required to pay to allied nationals for the loss of their pro perty within Italy. Molotov' had insisted at the last meeting that Italy pay $100,000,-000 in reparations to the Soviet and $200,000,000 to Yugoslavia. Greece and Albania. The western powers, asserting that Italy’s economy could not stand such a direct levy, urged at that time that reparations payments be in the form of Italian warships and other categories of specified materials. lilly Can’t Claim Damages Tile ministers agreed yesterday to a ll. S. proposal that any allied nation holding Italian property be allowed to use that property to defray claims of its nationals against Italy. At the same time, the conferees voted to require Italy to renounce any claims for damages against allied nationals arising from the war. The ministers also agreed to a French proposal establishing the machinery for the settling of war claims bv allied nationals. Under this measure, various three man claims tribunals would be set up. consisting of one person named by Italy, one by the allied country concerned and the third by the first two. If the first two a third, would be member. FIVE CENTS THE COPT Adion Due On Anti-Racket Labor Bill Bi-Partisan Drive Looms, .

A free lunch will br served to Chamber of Commerce members, exhibitors and parents of exhibitors. More than 80 farm boys and girls were issued day old chicks early this spring by the Chamber of Commerce and in return for the 50 chickens given each youth must return eight cockerels as payment. County Agent C. H. Hailey said Tuesday that this project has made it possible for a large number of boys and girls to obtain good foundation stock on their farms. At the close of the show all birds will be sold at auction to the highest bidder. Entries will close at ll a. rn Thursday. Frank Griswold of Wewoka will be the official judge. Cash awards will be given by three places in each of the following breeds:    White    Wyandotte. Rhode Island Reds, Barred Plymouth Rocks, White Plymouth Rocks and White Leghorns. The award offered are $3 for first place, $2 for second and $1 for third. The exhibitor of the grand champion bird of the shov; will receive $5. Gilbert Wheelock, 4-H club member from Pleasant Hill, exhibited the grand champion bird last year and the bird was sold to W. M. Emanuel for $2 per pound.  *-- Three Rules Set For Beer Sellers County Authorities List Three Woyt to Hold Down Disturbances Three rules have been made by county authorities for persons requesting and those who already have licenses to sell beer. It was stated that if the rules are followed disturbances at places where beer is sold will be at a minimum and that the owner of such a place can operate a better place of business. The three rules, as outlined by county authorities are as follows; 1. The owner of a beer joint cannot employ a person who is not eligible to receive a beer license. If this suggestion is followed the chance of disturbance is decreased. 2. No minors should be allowed to stay in or around a beer joint. It is against the law to sell beer to a minor and county authorities see no reason for minors to be around such a place of business. 3. No beer should be sold for consumption at the place of business after 5 p.m. It is permissable for a beer joint operator to sell beer “to go” after 5 p.m. In other words, sell beer over the counter before 5 p.m. and sell package beer only after 5 p.m. Girl Bicyclist Is Shuck by (ar Fly Funds Are Sought The program of eradication of flies in Ada actually started Monday when P-TA members started a house to house solicitation to obtain funds for the purchase of DDT and for the employment of labor to clean up all alleys. “There has been some misunderstanding,” Mayor Luke B. Dodds said, “because there have been some who are not invited making a house to house canvass.” The mayor was complaining Tuesday morning that some persons not P-TA members have been gathering money, but not for the fly eradii ation campaign. Mayor Dodds has requested housewives to not give money for the drive to just anyone who knocks on the door and wants money for the drive. He said that it will be well for housewives to ask a few questions before making a donation. P-TA committees have not reported as to the results of the first day of work as the town was not covered as rapidly as it was previously thought. More than $1,000 will be needed to make the drive successful, according to the mayor. Americans Doe For Slimmer Diet, Is Anderson’s Version By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, June 18. UP>— Americans are in for a slimmer diet during the next 12 months compared with amounts they ate in the past year. This advance picture of the nation s food supply was provided today by Secretary of Agriculture Clinton P. Anderson in a report which said nevertheless. that “on an over-all basis, civilian per capita consumption is expected to continue at a high level considerably above pre-war.” Taking into account present production prospects and military and foreign demands, Anderson said there will be less meats, poultry and eggs, wheat products, dried fruits and dry peas, but more canned fruits and juices and more canned vegetables and vegetable juices. The supply of food fats and oils—now far short of demand—is expected to be about the same. Looks Ahead Six Months The secretary looked only six months ahead in forecasting supplies of dairy products. He predicted a very short supply of butter, and about the same amounts of cheese, canned milk and dried milk as were available in the same period last year. He said butter supplies may drop to a monthly average of 60,000,000 pounds by October—a figure which officials said would be less than half the demand. The per capita meat supply is WASHINGTON. June 18—OF) —Republican and Democratic backers counted today on overwhelming approval already voted by both houses to force early senate action on the Hobbs "anti* racketeering ” labor bill.

Mr. Truman said he favored these ob* jettives but added that congress should make it clear the measure does not “make it a felony to an ^ picket peacefully.** The Case bill provision approved by a 59 to 22 senate vote. was identical with the Hobbs bill the house had passed.

Citizens of Ada and Pontotoc county have shown what they could do by contributing approximately 175 cases of canned goods which are stored at Convention Hall, with an additional 1,300 cans at the fire station to make a total of about 210 cases of canned goods. This total will probably be swelled considerably by the’time the final count is taken. County Home Demonstration clubs from Stonewall and Fitzhugh bought a case of milk each with the clubs* money when they had no food ready yet to can. while a club in Ada canned 90 No. 2 cans of food Monday to swell their total to some 340 cans for the total time. Final figures on cash donations are not available but they are expected to reach a rather large sum. If any person has a donation to make he should get it in before the finance chairman’s office closes at five o’clock. He is Ray Martin city clerk, Convention hall. TTie food will be shipped out of Ada some time this week after it has been sorted and packed. It will be distributed by UNRRA.
