Trams Hit Head on; Four Killed CARBONDALE, Alfa. Four persons were killed and four others injured tdday in the iiead-on collision of a passenger train and a freight train at this northern Alberta town. A southbound Northern Alberta Railways passenger struck a standing freight in the station yard. The crash tipped over the diesel loco- motive of the freight and flaming oil from an exploding tank car poured over the sta- tion, setting it afire. Mounted police said the four killed were the fireman of the passenger train and the station master, his wife and young son, burned to death in the fire that de- stroyed the station. j i' THE FOUR, injured .were the fireman and engineer of the.freight train and the en- gineer and a passenger on the other train. The station master was Ar- thur Fraser. Killed with him were his wife, Alice, and their 5-year-old son, Kelly. The name of the dead fire- man was not made known immediately. Witnesses said the- bodies of the Fraser family were "blown through the station'' when the diesel locomotive of the freight exploded. The injured were taken to hospital in Edmonton, 19 miles to the south. Firemen from the nearby Royal Canadian Air Force base at'Namao fought the fire but it engulfed the station and destroyed it in a matter of minutes. Only the chimney was left.

One big group of farmers demanded the ouster of Sec- retary of Welfare Arthur S.1 Hemming for putting out word, just ahead of the tra- ditional cranberries-with-tur- key feast of Thanksgiving, that part of the West Coast crop has been found contami- nated by a weed killer. V A COUNTY agricultural agent in the area of reported contamination offered to eat all the berries he could hold. He said there is no evidence the material induces cancer in humans. And the National Agricul- tural Chemicals Assn. came in with the comment that the amount found in berries is so low a human would have to subsist almost entirely on the fruit for years to approxi- mate the conditions that produced cancer of the thy- roid in test rats. s. BUT AN A. P. spokes- man said the fruit, whether frestr or canned, was being pulled off the shelves to be on the safe side. He said the firm feels the berries are safe but in the public interest it believes it best to pull out un- til the situation clears up. Most of the chain's berries come from unaffected areas. The uproar was set off by a statement from Flemming Monday that the contamina- tion, resulting from improper application of the weed killer aminotriazole, had been found in part of the 1959 crop from Washington and Oregon, and the 1958 crop is being checked. 3 THE.SECRETARY said the Food and Drug Administration urges that no further sale of cranberries or cranberry pro- ducts from the area be made until the industry has sub- mitted a workable plan to separate contaminated berrie; from those not contaminated As for the housewife, Flem- (Continucd Page A-5, Col. 1) Southland's Finest Evening Newspaper LONG BEACH 12, CALIF., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1959 Vol. LXXII-No. 241 P RI C E 1 0 C B N X S TELEPHONE HE 5-1161 32 PAGES CLASSIFIED HE 2-5959 HOME EDITION (Six Editions Daily) Warns L B. on Buying Cranberries City Health Officer Dr. I D.

Two' of the craft carried four airmen o their deaths. Seconds before their plane crashed two other airmen jailed out, parachuting safely onto a central Montana ranch. But for what rancher Olind Jenni said was a vital differ- ence of a few seconds, a ranch house may have been struck. Jenni saw one plane crash, its fiery flash illuminating the darkness like daylight at the base of a large hill. Min- utes later a second plane crashed against the same hill.

Charles Harris, 27, who thought he had saved his 5-Unit Rocket Hurls Radio Device Aloft Transmitter Sends Electronic Density Data Back to U.S. WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. 'A') A five-stage rocket hurled a tiny radio transmit- ter statute miles into a cold, cloudless sky today. The nosu cone dropped into the Atlantic Ocean about 28 minutes later some 800 miles off shore. The instruments it carried aloft sent back new informa- tion on the electronic den- sity of space more than 800 miles up. The vapor trail and smoke left as the rocket roared up- ward could be seen along most of this Delaware-Mary- land-Virginia peninsula. There was virtually no wind, and the long column hung motionless for several min- utes. THE SHOOT was conduct- ed by the Army's Ballistic Research Laboratories based at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Md., in cooperation with the National Aeronau- tics and Space Administra- tion. The Army said all phases of the "Strong- just as ex- pected. The tiny transmitter hurled aloft was designed and pack- aged by Dr. Lyman W.

STEVENSON, M.D., and HARRY MILT (NO. 2 IN A SERIES) How tense are youV A practical examination of your tensions should cover the different type of emo- tional upsets of which ten- sion is an important part. To help you, we list nine of the" mosl common types of emo; tional upsets. After you fin- ish reading about each one, ask yourself: -Does this apply to me? Does it happen fre- quently? When it happens, is it severe? Does it last a long time? If only a few of these situa- tions apply to even if they all apply, but only in a mild the tension- breaking actions we will sug- gest later should give you re- lief. 1.

Some people cause themselves additional woe by worrying about being worried. Margaret sought help at a mental health clinic be- cause she thought she was worrying too much. The social worker found: Margaret was pregnant and unmarried; she was out of a job, out of sav- ings, and faced eviction, her doctor suspected she had tu- berculosis.

Up to each morning, she is im- possible. She can't stand the sight of her husband and chil- arourid the kitchen lest they touch off an explosion. After her third or fourth cup of coffee, she starts to be human again. Oddly enough1 she is a very easygoing person the rest of the time.

Two policemen oamc across him. They rushed him to Hannemann Hos- pital. The man's heartbeat and his breathing had stopped. His body was blue and cold. A priest was summoned to administer the last rites of the Catholic Church. The man's condition was4 diagnosed quickly as car-' diac arrest. A team of eight heart surgeons swung into action. They cut open his chest and applied massage and artificial respiration. Within minutes the heart beat was restored but the body remained cold and blue. The surgeons then began using electric shock, adren- alin, calcium and other drugs to restore a normal heart beat. But their efforts were in vain. Never losing hope, the surgeons poured six quarts of hot, sterile saline solu- tion into the open chest cavity to warm the heart. There was a quick flurry of beating in the lower chambers of the heart. The surgeons then pour- ed some 20 gallons of warm tap water over the heart. William Flanagan, 43, a Negro laborer, gradually came to life. This was last Saturday. But the hospital did not reveal until Mon- day what it called the most remarkable operation of it type in many years. As for Flanagan, he just sat up Monday and en- joyed a steak.
