Ex-GI's Win Gun Battle And Take Charge in Athens, Tenn.
Force Surrender of 50 Deputised Officers Barricaded In Jail; Six Men Seriously Wounded; Gl's Claim Their Men Elected
Athens Trouble Flares Between Political Machine, Embattled Veterans
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 2.— W—Senator Kenneth D. McKellar, the 77-year-old dean of the upper house, won Democratic renomination and a sixth term in Washington yesterday in a statewide primary election marked by bloodshed and violence.
Backed by the powerful Demo-cratic organization of Edward H Crump in Shelby county (Memphis), the veteran McKellar rolled up a margin of nearly two to one against his chief opponent, CTO backed Edward Ward Carmack.
The Shelby county vote was an avalanche for McKellar but he outdistanced Carmack in the rest of the state as well. Democratic nomination is equivalent to election.
State Guard Called
Rattling gunfire from a violent partisan clash in a southeast Tennessee town sent the state guard into action as a climax to the primary.
State Adjutant General Hilton Butler mobilized units of the state guard and ordered them to move at daybreak into Athens, seat of McMinn county, where shooting warfare broke out after a handful of ex-servicemen challenged an entrenched political organization.
The bloody and riotous disorders continued for more than six hours until some fifty besieged deputized officers were blasted from their stronghold in the Mc-Mmn county jail.

Battle. Vets Help Trace Bad Shells
Trail of Makers of Defective Ammunition Grows Warm tor Senate Probers
By ALEX H. SINGLETON
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. (/IT_
Battlefront veterans—with long memories of buddies killed by faulty moi tar shells—helped the senate war investigating committee today in its determined hunt for the munitions makers who produced the defective ammunition.
The trail grew warmer.
From one combat soldier came an offer to supply the committee with the “lot numbers” of bad 4 2 shells supplied the 100th chemical mortar battalion in Italy.
A second letter belated that a complete report had been furnished the chemical warfare service of a test at Fort Bragg, N. C during which a mortar shell exploded at tho muzzle, killing or wounding the entire crew.
“These reports show' that lot number of the defective round, and from that information the manufacturer can be ascertained, it said.
A third former soldier, veteran of the European campaign, informed the committee that lit* had kept a record of defective shells sent to the 65th chemical company in Belgium.
Records Some Place
“The records of this work must be some place and I believe you could get some valuable information from them,” he w rote.
With these—and more than a half-hundred other letters in hand — committee members declared that they would press the chemical warfare service for quick delivery of the lot numbers of all 4 2 shell purchases, and the manufacturers to whom those lot numbers were assigned.
At the same time. Senator

Many of the smaller nations, I led by New Zealand, lined up against a decision of the foreign j ministers of the four principal 'powers- Britain, the Chited States, France and Soviet Russia— to rotate th*- chairmanship among themselves, hut the issue did not reach a vote.
Molotov Reminds Briton
When Hector Mac Neil, speaking for the British, called on the proponents of a single chairman to offer a proposal which would specifically call for the election by acclamation of President Georges Bidault of France as permanent chairman, Soviet foreign Minister V . M. Molotov pointedly remarked, “irr this very room the foreign ministers made the decision to have a rotating chairmanship.”
