One glance at the pic leaves no doubt. The reason: A team of youngsters travelled to Calgary and played in "C" Class of the annual Calgary Five-Pin'Bowling Association tournament. Once the last ball had been played, the "kids" were the most surprised and without a doubt the happies team in Calgary.

Week-End Roundup of Subversive Elements Said Only the Beginning FRANKFURT. Germany, April 1. Intelligence officers said today that several Nazi sub- versive movements still are plot- ting against the Altes in Germany and that the weekend's roundup of nearly Hitler youth conspira- tors was "only the beginning." The onicers said counter-espion- age agents are working: "day and night" to break up the lasc vestiges of Kazi resistance which came into the open with tne weekend sweep on followers of captured Arthur Ax- mann, former head of the Youth ilovercent. The operation Egainss the Ax- mann group is still going on. it was said, although only remnants of the group remain.- Virtually all the funds which Hitler handed over to Axmsnn in the last days of Berlin to keep alive the Nazi Drulosonhv. were seized when Wiili Heiaemann, Asmann's henchman, was captured. About 20 per cent of the target suspects in the weekend roundup had fled their addresses when, the agents struck, however. No casualties were reuorted among ths 7.eee combat rroops and counter-espionage agents who par- ticipated in the raids. the wounded filer. However, it did not say that Ossenbach. actually saw Weigal fire the shot.

The article, written by Pravda's Intema-.ional reviewer, commented: "How strange it is that some members of the security council on tMs Question" took a more irrecon- cilable position than the Iranian Prime Minister Qavam. He con- sidered it possible to postpone it for 14 davu if it was found neces- sary to discuss the question at all in the security council."
