Earl E. McKendree, one of the managers of the show, says that early sales far exceed the expectations of the rodeo com- mittee, but there was nothing like a sellout yet in sight. The ticket office was not scheduled to open until 9 a. rh., but sales started several minutes before the scheduled time be- cause of the large crowd that had gathered in front of the of- fice at 123 South Broadway. Enough seats for people will be available to rodeo fans this year and almost half of them bleacher seats. Plenty of Reserved Seats Reserved seats are located on the north, west and south, sides of the arena. On the north are the concrete reserve seats and down in front will be the box seats. Located on the west and south sides of the arena are the steel reserve seats that have been con- structed -this year to increase the seating capacity. The steel seats are 16 rows high, individual seats are 22 in- ches wide and 16 inches high, making them as comfortable as the concrete seats. Fans Picking Out Locations The caretaker at the Fair- grounds told McKendree that a number of rodeo fans were out looking over the newly construct- ed seats Sunday afternoon. Some fans are going to prefer the new seats because they may be much cooler than the seats on the north Bomb Blast In Jerusalem Kills Dozens Bold Assassins Explode Bomb in Palatial King Da- rid Hotel in Center of City JERUSALEM, July A Palestine police communique said at least 50 persons were be- lieved killed in the palatial King David hotel, headquarters of the British army and secretariat of the Palestine government, when "terrorists" exploded a bomb there today. Unofficial reports said about 60 were wounded by the blast which damaged the right wing of the hotel in which the secretariat was housed. Military headquarters were on the upper floors. A cordon around the area pre- vented an approach to the scene. The only American known to be injured was Richard Mowrer, New York Post correspondent, who was reported to have receiv- ed a broken leg-when hit by a falling stone as he was walking past the hotel.

Fire erupted after the tremend- ous blast, which shook the center of modern Jerusalem at p.m. A strict curfew was clamped on and traffic and pedestrians dis- appeared from the center of Je- rusalem and other Jewish parts of the capital.

Army head- quarters were on the upper floor and it was' from there that, the British recently directed the ar- rest of Jewish agency leaders in Palestine, ordered the search of many Jewish settlements and the seizure of large quantities of hid- den arms and ammunition.

Sir John Shaw, chief secretary, escaped without injury. Most of the cas- ualties were soldiers. Part of the hotel was damaged badly.

'Strong Arm' Set Up; Villarocl Had Planned To Flee LA PAZ, Bolivia, July 22, Student and labor revolution- ists took over the government of Bolivia today after assassinating President Gualberto Villarroel, who was thrown bodily from the presidential lamppost, and then paraded lifeless and nake through the streets on an army tank. After the macrabre parade in. this highest capital in the world, the slain president's body again. was hanged from a lamppost be- fore the palace. The four days of bloody street fighting in which. persons were reported kill- ed or wounded ended Sunday with victory for the rebels. Many of the president's close collabora- tors died with him. Nestor Guillen, dean of tho su- perior court, assumed office as acting president but vowed to re- linquish the office when Tomns Monje. court president, was well enough to take his place. He called the regime "a provisional government lo call elections and then turn over power to a gov- ernment chosen by Ilio people." rrnmi.se Civil Tin.' lenders pro- mised that suppressed civil liber- ties would be restored im- mediately. The rebels reported that par- tially burned bodies of oplitical prisoners of the Villarroel regime hud been found in ammunition boxes at police hoadauarlcrs. This, they said, was evidence the severity of previous measures to repress the revolution. Survivors of the final assault on the president's pnlace said Vil- larroel wns found wounded in the chest.

The president then was thrown from the balcony to the mob in the street below.
