St. Louis Girl Kills Fatter Who Stopped Runaway St. Vincent Rcar- dcn, president of n St. Louts paint manufacturing concern, was shot to death early today and Coroner Ar- nold J.

The tank, installed at the Lake Wlnona site In the mid 1020's, gavo way early Friday after- noon while gasoline was being pumped from a transport truck Into tho tank, which at the moment contained about gallons. However, both- D: Powell, dis- tributor here for tho Puro Oil Com- pany, owner of the tanks, and fire department officials, said the col- lapse of the tank was not a "true explosion." They said there would have been a fire under that condi- tion. Fire department members, after inspecting tho damaged tank, said the vents on top of the tank, provided for release pressure In the tank, appeared to be in operating condition, and they believe the seams of the tank weakened.

S. Diplomatic of- ficials today viewed Secretary George Marshall's first major policy statement as a guarantee of deter- mined countermeosures against Sov- iet world propaganda and attempts to link atomic, energy control with disarmament. Marshall declared the United States rmlst back up its foreign, pol- icy with real military power until there is "peace with a dependable basis of collective security." That, he said, means there must be a universal military training jrogram to supply the armed serv- ces with manpower. He told a press conference he does lot agree with tho Russian view that atomic energy control can be dealt with as a part of the disarma- ment question. In any case there can be no disarmament until there s International security, Marshall said. Without mentioning Russia by name, he said the State department must blanket the earth with truth in the midst of a riot of propaganda. If the United States continues to give the world an accurate state- ment of Its position, Marshall de- clared, others will accept the truth in the end.
