New York. N. Y. (INS) — Details of the largest alleged black market conspiracy since the starting of the war were revealed today when a federal grand ju v in Brooklyn voted indictment of the Liebman Packing Company of Green Bay. Wisconsin and 38 other
Motorists driving in the vicinity of Iowa Wesleyan as well as in the vicinity if any local school are being urged to use extreme care and watch for aviation students at the college and school pupils at the other schools.
Aviation .students and school pupils must cross the streets frequently. While mo. • drivers are careful and use caution, circumstances may lead to confusion and an accident.
Attern ion was called to this possibility as the result of a minor accident o;cun ii g near the air corps detachment barracks on Broadway Tuesday aftern< on. As a group of students were marching southward on Broadway, a car driven bv Mrs. Viola Johansen of Swedesburg was being driven southward and was passing the line of students. A car was approaching from the south. Mrs. Johansen became confused for a moment, turned too close to the line cf aviation students and hit one cf them. Another jumped on the running board to avert being hit.
It was fortunate that no one was ser-iously hurt. Mrs Johansen regretted the incident greatly. However, the minor accident serves as a warning that a more serious one might occur if extreme caution is not used.
London, Eng. (INS) — Vast addition-z I areas lay in crumbled flame->carred luins today after a second successive concentrated bombardment of the R'ich capitol by formidable Airforce : qi adrons.

Twenty RAE bcmberrs were lost ir the newest assault as compared to the went ,’-six lost in the saturation raid on Berlin less than 24 hours before.
The several hundred four-engihed bombers which returned to Berlin showered the city with hundreds of blockbusters and probably 100,000 more in: endiaries to set new blazes.
It was considered doubtful that exhausted fire brigades were able to cope effectively with the second great conflagration visited en the city.
Stockholm, Sweden (INS* — Twenty-five thousand persons were killed in Monday night's raid on Berlin and the figure mounted in last night’s new attack according to a report in the Swedish newspaper Alhambra
