He told the Arab leader that he could not agree with the latter’s statement that there was inconsistency m the American position.  Replying to a letter leceived from Ibn Saud October 15. the president wrote:  With icgard to the possibility envisaged bv your majesty that force and violence may be used by Jews in aggressive schemes against the neighboring Arab countries. I ran assure you that this government stands opposed to aggression of any kind or to the employment of terrorism for political purposes. I may add, moreover, that I am convinced that i esponsible Jewish leaders do not contemplate a policy of aggression against the Arab countries adjacent to Palestine/’  Belief Unchanged The president said he still adhered to the belief, “widely shared bv the people of this country. that nothing would contribute more effectively to the allegation of the plight of homeless Jews than the authorization of the immediate entry of at least iOO.CKH) of them to Palestine.”  In a letter released by the V bite Housn today he reminded the Arab leader that no decision has been made on this proposal which he submitted originally to Prime Minister Attlee of Great Britain more than a vear ago. Other Laws C ould Help In the interim, “it is only nature* that this government should ,avor at this time the entry into Palestine of considerable numbers cf displaced Jews in Europe.”  The pr esident reiterated a previous view that a concerted effort should be made “to open the gates of other lands, including the I_ mted States, to those unfortunate persons.”  He added that he is prepared to ask Congress for special legislation “admitting to this country additional numbers of these persons. over and above the immi-grat.cn r uotas fixed by our laws.”  Icy Gala Wrecks Buildings With Damage Estimated Over $200,000  NOME. Alaska, Oct. 28, Scarred and battered Nome today began cleaning the wreckage of 18 buildings destroyed or damaged during an ice gale that swept in from the Bering sea over the weekend.  As the storm roared northward. property owners estimated their loss at between $200,000 and $400,000.  Six business buildings were wrecked and 12 seriously damaged All were on the south side of the town's main thoroughfare paralleling the waterfront. Basements were flooded in many others which withstood the pounding seas and 60-mile-an-hour winds.  No lives w*ere lost and only a few minor injuries were reported.    •  Warning that the storfn was approaching gave the townspeople time to form emergency crews and move merchandise and supplies from the danger area.  Damage was limited almost entirely to the business section and as a result no housing shortage is anticipated among the 1.-500 to 2.000 wintertime residents. The native village nearby was harder hit. and several families whose dwellings were destroyed are being cared for in the native school.

Silver Lining For Denver (ouple As Plight Is Known  DENVER, Oct. 28, <*»_A Denver couple, so plagued by housing difficulties and misadventures that they decided to offer their five children for adoption finally found that silver lining.  Newspaper stories on the plight of Mr. and Mrs. William E. West prompted numerous offers of aid including a solution to their No.  I problem-housing. A large garage was placed at their disposal as a home for as long as the family needs it.  “I can get a job without any trouble now that I have a place for the family to live,” West, a 45-year-old painter, told a reporter. ‘‘Above everything we wanted to keep the family together.”  West said that he disposed pf his small home here early this month and headed for Missouri to buy a farm. The farm, however, turned out to be run down and was 42 miles from tow*n instead of a reported two.

The FWA made public a comprehensive national survey cov-ering the fiscal year ending June 30. It included a public w'orks planning done with ar\jl w ithout federal money.  Oklahoma state and local governments had called for federal funds to finish plans on projects estimated to cost $1,981,000. the report said. In addition they have gone into their own treasuries to pay for the planning of $7,305,000 more. They also have received federal money to plan $1,590,000 worth of highway building . More in Design Stage  Much larger than this schedule, however, was the work totaling $131,984,000 for Oklahoma still in the design stages.  These projects are not completely planned, FWA said, but the blueprints are taking shape on the drawing boards. Among  ai ’e: Work to cost $20,556,-000 and being planned with federal money; $24,305,000 more  ou *  w ’th only local funds, and $81,123,OOO worth of highway construction under the program for matching federal and state funds in equal amounts.  . Plans covered in the survey include those prepared with federal assistance, under the mobility,? 11 *  and rec onversion act of 1944 plans completed or brought to the design stage without federal assistance and those under fedei a1 aid and state highway programs.

Fire Chief Ed Haley joined the National Fire Protection Association in urging all Ada residents to keep a watchful eye for fire hazards when they usher in the traditional annual festivity Thursday evening.  Chief Haley has made a special plea to pranksters not to turn in false fire alarms as part of their merrymaking.  Unauthorized and isolated bonfires are a serious fire threat to the whole community. Terrible i_ e  tragedies have occurred when small fires have flashed across halls or night clubs filled with combustible hangings or when flimsy Hallowe’en costumes have been ignited or when candlelit paper jack-o’-lanterns have overturned.  Jack-o’-lanterns are safer and afford more fun if they are electrified, for then they can be flashed on and off, adding to the weird effect.  Be sure that all decorations are incombustible or flameproof-\  lba t exits are unobstructed and clearly marked; that sprinklers, hand hose and fire extinguishers are kept ready to operate. ’ the chief said.  “Even buckets of water, widely distributed, may mean the difference between a trivial flareup and a holocaust,” Haley concluded.  Truman administration.  While Lewis himself appeared to be on something of a spot with his implied threat of a walkout by his 400,000 soft coal miners Friday, the immediate pressure W'as on the White House.  The big decision that has to be made there is whether (I) to give in again—as the government did when Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug signed a contract with Lewis last spring to end that 59-day strike -—or (2) to let the miners quit work four days before the elections and take whatever political consequences there might be.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
