Bear Creek Lumber Warehouse Burns Exploding Can of Adhesive Sets Blaze Causing Damage Bear Creek One of the original warehouses of the Bear Creek Lumber company was destroyed by fire this morning. Loss is estimated at Bear Creek and Clintonville firemen were able to save a second warehouse about 25 feet away. It contained some worth of lumber. The yard is situated east of the railroad tracks that sep- arate it from the main vil- lage. John Dunlavy, partner and yard manager, said the fire started when a can of con- tact bond adhesive he was heating with a heat lamp in the unheated building explod- ed. The hot adhesive ignited the walls of the old ware- bouse. Fanned by Wind The fire, in the northwest corner of the building, was fanned by a northwest wind. Bear Creek Fire Chief Ed Reinke said the interior was aflame when his department arrived shortly after the alarm at a.m. The 140 by 36 foot, 2-story frame warehouse, built in the days of the old Welcome-Shi- octon Lumber company, con- tained plywood, roofing, wall tiles, packaged coal, cement, insulation and sheet rock. Dunlavy said the loss was Marshall Condition Satisfactory, His Physicians Report Ft. Bragg, N. G. Gen George C.

Chief Ed DeFrane said the second warehouse, about 25 feet south and at right angles to the blazing warehouse, was aflame when his department arrived. A crew of some 35 to 40 by- standers started to unload the lumber stored in the second warehouse. Clintonville fire- men were able to extinguish the blaze, but not before the wall was damaged. The fire was battled by two Bear Creek trucks and three Clintonville trucks. Youth Accused of Killing Parents Sacramento, Calif.

Miss Anna Wasylkow, 39, is a civilian clerk-steno- grapher at the St Albans Naval hospital in Queens. Last July 31 around p.m. the office's official closing time the tele- phone rang. She answered it. It was a requisition re- quest, and she left a memo for the proper authority. A few days later a super- ior demanded to know why she answered the telephone while "off duty." Miss Was- ylkow said she didn't re- member whether it was a minute before or a min- ute or two after. But since she was there, she said, she considered it proper to an- swer the phone. Came the offcial repri- mand: "You are hereby of- ficially warned for failure to carry out instructions on July 31, 1956. A repetition of this offense within one year may result in applications of higher penalities." Miss Wasylkow was burn- ed up. She filed an appeal. It was denied. She was told she was "guilty of insubord- ination." The lady went out and got herself a lawyer, Samuel Resnicoff.

Newsmen told of it after President Eisenhower had conferred with John A. McCone, the AEC chairman. AEC officials, displaying a model at a news conference, said the device is capable of powering the instruments in a satellite, for example, for at least a year. They said it would take 490 pounds of batteries to pro- duce the electrical energy the new device can power with- out batteries. The device generates heat, using a radio isotope polon- ium in this case and has no moving parts. The device so far has been tested only on the ground. The AEC officials made it clear that it could be put into satellites shortly. They said it also has other potential uses, such as in the field of navi- gation aids.

"If the United States comes here, we will make trenches in the the rebel leader told the Havana Rotary club. The state department said in Washington that Amer- ican policy was "strictly one of nonintervention in Cuban domestic affairs." Noting some U.S. congres- sional protests to the execu- tions, Assistant Sec. of State Roy Rubottom said, "We are not going to intervene in what is essentially Cuba's affairs." To avoid misunderstanding, the U. S. Navy canceled prev- ious plans for U. S. ma- rines en route to maneuvers near Puerto Rico to stop at the American navy base at Guanlanamo bay, Cuba. The base is at the opposite end of the island from Havana. Castro earlier yesterday, in remarks in passing to a group in his hotel lobby, had said that if marines are sent to Cuba Gringos will die." Gringo is the derogatory latin American term for U S. citizens, of whom there are living in Cuba. No Cuban Protests Castro later told the Rotary club he had not realized this comment would be published but he stood by it. In a related vein, Provision- al President Manuel Urrutla said in a TV broadcast: "1 do not believe the North American people would sup- port intervention in Cuba. I believe that we should main- tain the most cordial relations with the United States, but without admitting impositions I have not received any protests from Cubans about injustice in the trials of war criminals." ,u was Urrutia said further that that the discussions would be Rnvcrnmcnt proposes to seek resumed at 4pm revision of international rules t rom the state department, on the nghts of asylum to pre- Mikoyan was hurrying to the XPMl "War criminals" from capitol for a luncheon with enjoying this privilege, members of the senate for- Won't "Submit" eign relations committee The rebel chief's vision of l s. troops landing in Cuba apparently stemmed from de- mands by critics in the U.
