If this happens, it will be up to the board to decide others such as Ozark Airlines, might be permitted to seek certification to serve the county port. (Leaders in the fight for Fox Cities air service were scheduled to contact Ozark officials today.) North Central, in its petition for reconsideration, did not in- dicate when it will start serv- ice to Outagamie port if the protest is ignored. Frank But- tomer, North Central official earlier said he thought, one or another, it would be in April or May. Did Not Apply In the petition, North Cen- tral said in part: 'Appleton is an Industrie city and does generate good amounts of air traffic. Cur rently it is being served through the Oshkosh airport approximately 20 miles away "North Central believes Ap pleton can receive adequate service through Oshkosh on an east-west basis. North Central did not apply to serve Appleton on Segment 10 (Eau Claire Marshfield) as certi fied by the board. It did re- quest service of Appleton on a north south basis between Minneapolis and Green Bay as an alternate point with Oshkosh. We believe this is the only logical way to serve Appleton and the request should be granted." 7 Killed, 7 Hurt When Ammonia Tank Explodes Prairie du Chien One Airline Says Route Set for County Wrong North Central Wants Service to Alternate With Oshkosh Port BY RICHARD P. POWERS Washington North Central Airlines objects to serving Outagamie County airport by way of Eau Claire and Marshfield and is asking the civil aeronautics board to consider another route. The airlines has told the CAB it believes the only log- ical way to serve the Fox Cit- ies is to alternate some flights now stopping at Winnebago County' airport on Minneapo- lis Green Bay routes. There is no indication how soon the board will rule on the request for reconsideration of its Dec. 9 order. The order was to become effective Feb 16. The board will make its decision without formal hearing.

The roar from the bursting dam and swirling wa- ter was heard in the villages ive miles away. Pouring rain, flooding the dam for the last month, added to the horror of the scene. Houses in Rivadelago, a .own of 500 inhabitants, were swept away as if made cardboard. The dam broke at a. m. Most villagers were asleep. All fire trucks and ambu- ances, troops garrisoned in Zamora and members of the alange party youth front were immediately ordered to :he scene. The Monacabril Power sta- ion, on the western edge of the lake, and employes on duty there also were engulf- ed by the wall of water. The disaster occurred in one of the most inaccessible sec- ions of Spain. It posed no :hreat to American forces, whose nearest base is at Ma- drid, 190 miles to the south- east. Telephone and telegraph connections with Rivadelago were out, and the road from the village to Pueblo de San- abria was washed out in a number of places, making rescue operations difficult. Cabinet Meets Provincial Gov. Juan Muril- Lo took personal charge of the rescue operations. The Vega de Tera dam, the one which broke, was 112 feet high with a capacity of 234 million cubic feet of water. The difference in level be- tween the dam and Rivadela- go is feet. Troops and members of the falange youth front were try- ing to reach Rivadelago by boat. In Madrid the cabinet met under the presidency of Gen Francisco Franco and sent Lt Gen.

Washington The sen- ate today turned down a key proposal desinged by civil rights advocates to clear the way for a tight new curb on filibusters. The roll call vote, 60-36, was the first test of strength in the swirling battle over rules touched off with the start of the new senate session two days ago. It marked a striking victory for Democratic Leader Lyn- don B. Johnson (D-Tcxas) and other Democratic and Re- publican senate leaders back- ing a compromise offered by Johnson. ton P.
