The Palace was built by a local stock company several years prior to World War I and was originally operated by the late R. A. MacDonald. The theater has been owned by Mrs. Eckardt since 1923.

But he said this is partly a'mat- ;er of speculation, and this coun- try cannot suspend tests of nu- clear devices. Dulles said the Eisenhower ad- ministration believes it is impera- tive to keep in the forefront in this field. Until a dependable plan for dis- armament has been agreed upon, said, which includes control and inspection of such weapons it is not safe to discontinue tests. The secretary's news conference remarks, were in response to ques- tions. By implication, they were a reply to agitation among some Asian nations, India in particular, for an end to tests of nuclear weapons. Also at the news conference Dulles released a statement call- ing on the country to "wake up" to all the implications of the cold war with the Soviet Union. The general tenor of the state- ment was that economic and so- cial problems have now come to the forefront in the cold war. On other topics, Dulles made these main points: 1. The United States' talks with Red China through ambassadors at Geneva have been a disappoint- ing failure to the extent that 13 Americans are still imprisoned de- spite Red Chinese agreement last September to release them expedi- tiously. 2. Communist party boss Nikita Khrushchev made a personal at- tack on President Eisenhower last month primarily because, in Dul- les' view, the Soviets are extreme- ly sensitive to any denunciations of their control of eastern Euro- Two more witnesses took the stand this morning as the Pitts- Madison, Olson said that there ville Creamery explosion trial en-lwere some cinders near the top i- pean 0 satellite states. burg and Wausau 19, Green Bayj 3.

Residents, Crops Suffer Florida Gets Relief From Chill MIAMI, Fla. was warmer in south Florida Tuesday night but the weather bureau said it isn't ready yet to give the "all clear" signal on the freakish cold spell which has plagued the state for five days. Miami's low temperature dur- ing the night was 47, five degrees higher than Monday night's mini- mum which set a record for Jan. 10, and it was several degrees warmer throughout the state. "This may be only a temporary said a forecaster in the Miami weather bureau, which pre- dicted "continued rather cold" weather through Thursday. To- night's lows are expected to range from 30 to 35 in north Florida to 60 in the Keys. A minimum of 50 was forecast for Miami, with 40 to 45 in the city's western suburbs. Winds Variable Tuesday night, strong northerly winds which have blasted the Mi- ami area for several days switched temporarily into the southwest, but today they were back in the north- west and small craft warning flags still flew on both Florida coasts. The lengthy cold spell has caused damage estimated at 10 million dollars to Florida crops. Miami's high yesterday was 67 degrees and low, 42. The Weather Bureau said it would be about the same today. Salesmen Overworked Dealers selling permanent heat- ing fixtures reported they were far behind on installations. Overworked electrical heating equipment caused blown fuses in power transformers during peak hours. Dealers in fuel oils and bottled gas reported unprecedented demands. Prices of fresh vegetables, sky- rocketed. Wholesale buyers of beans and peppers at UK Pompano State Farmers Market bid one fourth to one third more than last week. Tomatoes were reported to have reached a bushel in New York. Manager Jonathan A. Bliss of the Florida state employment office in Miami said recruiting of farm labor in other states had been stopped and it now appeared that the migratory workers in Dade County would be sufficient in view of the cold. It had been planned to build the force to by the season's peak. The cold had just about stopped the harvesting of fresh vegetables in the Miami and Lake Okeechobee areas but in Broward County about 100 carloads of vegetables headed for market during the past two days.

Olson, 53, lola, a maintenance worker for the defendant Cities Service Oil Co., and James Ronek Sr., 34, Pittsville, son-in-law of the cream- ery owner and an employe of the creamery. They were the fifth and sixth witnesses to be, called by attor- neys for the plaintiffs, and Olson was deemed an adverse witness since he is employed by the de- fendant company. The trial combines 12 lawsuits against Cities Service, involving claims totaling more than 000. The plaintiffs contend that an underground gasoline tank owned by Cities Service leaked into the basement of the creamery and the resulting fumes caused the explo- sion. Olson's Testimony Olson told the court he has been in the gasoline business since 1919 and that he has been a'mainten- ance man for Cities Service for nearly 10 years. Under questioning by chief'coun- sel for the plaintiffs, Atty. Clif- ford Peickert of Stevens Point, Olson said that soil containing cinders can have a deteriorating effect upon underground tanks. Olson agreed that gasoline leak- ing from such a tank could seep through soil "probably 20 or 30 feet." The witness reported that he helped dig out the disputed tank at Piltsville. He confirmed lhat the lank was "rusty and corrod- but denied that it contained any pits or holes which might have caused it to leak. Asked if the soil bencalh the tank contained any gasoline, Ol- son replied that it "was clamp like any ground moisture is." He did admit, under a barrage of ques- tions from Peickert, that he "smclled fumes" coming from the soil which could have been from gasoline leaked there.

In 1954 there were G71 per- sons who had the disease and there were 39 deaths. The board figures also show that more than persons, most of them children, were given at least one shot of Salk vaccine last year and of this number only 84 con- tracted polio and only one person among those vaccinated died. Most of those stricken had the non- paralytic type of polio.

It added that paralytic polio in Wisconsin school children who re- ceived the Salk vaccine was eight limes less than in those who did not receive the vaccine. (The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis said that inci- dents in Wisconsin were the sec- ond highest of any state in the nation during 1955, exceeded only by Massachusetts. The foundation is conducting its annual drive this month for funds to fight the dis- ease.) The board's report showed that of the total stricken with polio, lion of a lance.
