Military and commercial transports thrust through the Berlin-Hamburg corridor over Communist East Ger- man territory, the informants said. The Western operation was designed to assert Allied rights in- face of the renewal of harrassing tactics by the Red air force. Western commanders gave .orders for the transports to fly deliberately below the level the Soviets want for ---------------their exclusive use for a three-hour period. For the seventh time since it started harassing Western iir links, to Berlin on Feb. 7, the Soviet air force told the Berlin Air Safety Center Sunday night it was reserving air space up to feet in the north corridor leading to Berlin from Hamburg, Wapanucka Freak Crash Kills Woman WAPANUCKA (Special) A freak accident here Saturday aft- ernoon took the life of a young Wapanucka mother, Mrs. Wanda Lee Smith, 21. Mrs. Smith was killed when she attempted to catch and stop her car, which had been set in mo- tion by her two-year-old daughter. Mrs. Smith, wife of Bruce Smith, had been chasing a calf had escaped from its pen. Her daughter, Belinda Lee, was with her in the front seat. When the calf had been driven back to the Smith home, Mrs. Smith parked the car in the drive- way and got out 'to herd the calf into the pen, leaving the car's engine running. Highway Patrol Trooper Nor- man Kious, who investigated the accident, said the little girl ap- parently pulled the gear lever of the" car and set the vehicle in motion. The car.moved backward first, then forward. Mrs Smith ran to the car, opened the door, and had started to get into the car when the vehicle sideswiped a tree. Mrs; Smith was crushed be- tween the car door and the body of the car. She died almost instantly. The car careened on until it struck the car port at the home of a neighbor across the street, Rob- ert Hamer. The little girl was un hurt. The accident happened about p.m. Saturday. Services have been tentatively set for Tuesday. Detailed arrange- ments are awaiting the arrival of Mrs. Smith's brother, who is in the armed services. Sunday Policemen 'Rest7 After Busy Saturday Ada policemen took a "rest" Sunday following a hectic Satur- day. Saturday was one of the worst on record for public drunkenness, traffic offenses and other law vio- lations. But. Sunday saw no cases filed in Municipal Court. The February accident toll still stands at 15 as none were record- ed during the two-day period. Late Saturday cases included: Tarzan Davis. 46; Vadte Lee Smyth. 54; Thomas W. Brittain, 69: Bill Green, 37; James B. Scott. 48; John Jay Futischa, 53; anc Aaron Nelson, 46, all arrested for public drunkenness. Jimmy Wychc. 17, was charged for speeding. Larry W.

The Soviet move came after a weekend pause in the Berlin air crisis. Sunday morning, Moscow announced it had rejected a three- power protest that maneuvers of the Red air force in the corridors were dangerous and illegal. The Allies insist that air safety rules, in force for 17 years, re- quire notification of each individ- ual flight through the three 20- mile wide corridors'linking Berlin with Frankfurt, Hannover and Hamburg. The Western powers charged the Russians were trying to change the rule's by makin, "block bookings" for the Red air force. The Allies do not dispute Soviet contentions the Red force has equal rights in the cor- ridors but they insist on carrying out the safety rules.. The Allies complained to the Kremlin that Soviet jet fighters buzzed Western aircraft in the corridors last week.

The state chairman, who won an intra-party fight with Gov. J.

In an accompanying letter Ken- nedy said the standby authority would be "an invaluable anti- recession tool." It would permit a speedup of authorized federal projects and provide grant and loan funds for the states to activate their own high-priority improvements, Ken. nedy said, without the necessity of waiting for congressional ac- tion which "may be too late." The standby plan, part of the three-point program urged by Kennedy in his economic message Jan. 22, has been hailed by most Democrats but attacked by Re- publicans as a potential invasion of congressional, authority. The other requested measures were standby powers to reduce income taxes subject to veto by Congress and permanently en- larged unemployment benefits.

In the House, the situation was even gloomier for. supporters of the -plan. Speaker John W.

Congress mostly marked time last week while many Republican members were away extolling Abraham Lincoln in traditional party rallies.
