June A reliable informant said four British officers were kidnapped today from an officers club at Tel Aviv by a dozen Jewish ex- tremists armed with tommyguns. 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 ex- plosions at railway yards rais- ed the toll in recent days to 18 deaths. The informant reporting the kidnapping at Tel Aviv said the bandits were oelioved to be mem- bers of the Jewish extremist or- ganization, Irgun Leuini. The Britisli officers were believed seized as hostages against the im- pending 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 Lon- don expressed surprise when in- formed of the reported kidnap- ping, asserting that "this is the first we have heard of it." (Reuters reported from Tel A- viv that the Britisli Sixth air- borne division was scouring the city for the kidnappers and their victims, reported to be fliers.

Palestine police said the engin- eer of a train between Haifa and Lydda ignored a red flag waved on the tracks two miles north of Lydda. Shots rattled around the cars but no casualties were sus- tained. Mine Tears Up Track Others reports said a land mine exploded near Khanyunis, be- tween Gaza and the Egyptian border frontier in the south, just Efter an oil train passed. Reports said the rails were repaired and service on the Lydda-Kanatara main line to Egypt was not inter- rupted.

Compromise in Making Now Reparations Italians Must Pay By JOSEPH DYNAN PARIS, June 18, 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 which Italy must pay for joining with the nazis in waging war. A more lenient Russian at- titude 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 ma.ior agree- American informants quoted Russian Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov as saying during the dis- cussions yesterday that he want- ed to make the burden on the Italian people as light as poS' sible. At another phase in the debate Molotov sought to place a ceiling on the total damages Italy might be required to pay to allied na- tionals for the loss of their pro- perty within Italy. Mololov had insisted at the last meeting that Italy pay 000 in reparations to the Soviet and to Yugoslavia, Greece and Albania. The west- ern powers, asserting that Italy's economy could not stand such a direct levy, urged at that lims that reparations payments be in the form of Italian warships and ments at their meeting here last j other categories of specified ma.- month. 1 tcrials. Italy Can't Claim The ministers agreed yesterday to a U. S. proposal that any allied nation holding Italian properly 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 n French proposal establishing the machinery for the settling of war claims by allied nationals. Under this measure, various three man 'claims tribunals would be set up, consisting of one person named by Italy, one by the allieil country concerned and the third by the first two. If the first two persons were unable to agree on a third, the international court would be asked to name that member.

It then zoomed across the De- troit river, the suction of the tornado creating four huge water- spouts. 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 100 feet at its base, sucked nearly every- thing 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 bu- reau said it dissipated.

But as the yellowish mass dis- appeared, .both American and Canadian residents began to rea- lize the full extent of the disaster. Detroit hospitals were hard- pressed to handle seemingly end- less streams of injured, many of whom were discharged after first aid treatment without their names being .recorded.

It was stated that if the rules are followed disturbances at places where beer is sold will be at a minimum and that the own- er of such a place can operate a better place of business. The three 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 li- cense. If this suggestion is fol- lowed 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 busi- ness 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. Fly Funds Are Sought The program of eradication of flies in Ada actually started Mon- day 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.

Mayor Dodds has requested housewives to not give money for the drive to just anyone who knocks on the door and wants money for ths drive. He said that it will be well for housewives to ask a few questions before mak- ing a donation. P-TA committees have not re- ported as to the results of the first day of work as the town was not covered as rapidly as it was pre- viously thought. More than will be needed to make the drive successful, ac- cording to the mayor. Americans Due For Slimmer Diet, Is Anderson's Version By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON, June 18, 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 provid- ed today by Secretary of Agricul- ture Clinton P. Anderson in a report which said nevertheless, th'at "on an over-all basis, civi- lian per capita consumption is ex- pected 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 out that cars with 'straights' ere- Emergency Food Collection Drive Will End Tonight The Emergency Food Collec- tion Drive which began on June 10 ends tonight.

Senator Hatch who unexpectedly jockeyed the meas- ure out of the senate judiciary committee yesterday, told a re- porter he will move soon to bring it up for a final vote. He added thiit he will resist any attempts to amend the meas- ure, despite the objections Presi- dent Truman raised to its word, ing when it was presented to him us part of the Case labor legislation he vetoed. Illls At Interference The bill, originally offered by Rep. Hobbs (D.-Ala.) and passed, by a wide house margin, would declare it a felony to interfere by robbery or extortion or by threats of violence with movement of goods in intersliilu commerce. Mr. Truinan said he favored these ob- jectives but added that congress should make it clear the measure does not it a felony to strike and picket peacefully." The Case bill provision, ap- proved by a 50 lo 22 senate vote, was identical with the Hobbs bill tho house had passed. Hatch said he thought Mr. Tru- man had been given n wrong in- terpretation of the measure. Peaceful Picketing Untouched "It doesn't interfere with nnjf legitimate union activity." he de- clared. "There is no need for amendments. It doesn't nffcct peaceful picketing or strikes and when it is explained fully I think all will agree that it is a Rood Sponsors of I ho legislation said it is aimed chiefly at some unions which ttilfp position that anyone bringing produce to a union-organized market must pay for a union driver, whether such a driver actually is cm- ployed. Senator Ball (R.-Minn.) said he will join Hatch and others in ajtempting to get senate approval of the measure without changes. This-move might land it on the president's desk ahead of any other labor bill, including Mr. Truman's own emergency legis- lation.
