The severed body was Identi- fied by a brother, Roman Juakola, Winona. The time of the death, which occurred on the switch tracks ut the foot of Main street, has been set at about a. m. Henry Parks, 119 West Mark street, an employe' of the Hodglns Transfer Company, reported find- ing of the body to police fit a. m. The transfer company has office on Second street near the tracks. Crew KcporLi A Chicago North Western switching crew told police that they had "picked up a string of cars" sit the Bay State mill at a. m. and had pushed them onto the north siding next to the Center street entrance to Levee park. The cars were on the siding only n r-hort while, the crew said, when the engine hooked onto the front and pulled the freight cars from the north siding to 11 second siding. At 4-30 o'clock they sultl they fin- ished the switching work nnd went to get a cup of coffee. At the time the cars were switched onto the north glcllng the switch was clear, the crew said. Therefore, Jaskola must navo been killed shortly after when the curs were pulled from the Biding. His body was found lying near the switch. In reconstructing tho death, au- thorities said Juskola apparently started to walk out of Levee park to go south on Main street. 2nd Car Hit Him At the entrance to Levee" park, Just norUi_aJU.lho north, railroad Hiding, JftxXdltt apparently stumbled and fell beneath the train which was moving over the siding. Police have determined that the second car back of the engine was the iirrt car to run over tho body. It is also possible, authorities said, that Jaskola started to crawl under the cars, which were block- ing the crosswalk whilo the train was standing still, and just as he- started under, the train etarted moving. Robert Tweedy, Wlnono coun- ty coroner, who was called, said death was accidental, and added that no inquest will be held. Employed at the Calvin Ncsler farm. Mlnnclska, Jaskola was not married. Ills parents are dead. A former resident of Arcadia, Jnskola. is survived by three broth- ers. Stanley and Roman, Winona, and Loo, Trcmpealenu, and a sister, Mrs. Anton Orulkowskl. Wauman- dee.

Deportation Kecommendcd The House- committee referred the Eisler case to the Justice de- partment a week ago, recommend- ing that the Hollywood composer be prosecuted on perjury and pass- port fraud charges nnd then de- ported to his native Germany.

Hlghlowcr Lake Success Diplomatic authorities said today that the United Nations appeared to have but slight chance of working out a settlement for the Jewish-Arab conflict over Palestine which would be acceptable to both sides nnd avert all danger of a shooting showdown in the Land. The outcome most generally ex- pected here is that some solution will be proposed which will be more agreeable to one side than the other and that the United Nations will have to take responsibility for en- forcing it with some sort of interna- tional policing arrangement. That presumably would mean contribu- tlons.of armed forces by member na- tions for that specific purpose, The Jewish Agency for Palestine told a United Nations special com- mittee yesterday that it was pre- pared to accept "in sadness and most reluctantly" of the May By-Pass Marts, Says Anderson Secretary Move Would Help Stay Inflation Washington Secretary of Agriculture Clinton Anderson today disclosed that the Agriculture de- partment Is considering of grain direct from formers. This by-passing of the grain cs- changes would be aimed to curb the Inflationary upswing of wheat and corn prices and minimize spec- ulation resulting from the Eu- ropean aid program. Anderson told of this possible step after a cabinet meeting at the White House which was reported to have been concerned largely with possible eHects of the Eu- ropean aid program on prices. He told reporters the govern- ment would "prefer to continue buy- ing through the normal channels of groin trade." "If we can continue to do so. (without prices getting out of hand) we will not have to adopt the farm acquisition plan." he said. Bushels The Agriculture department will have to buy tho. bushels of grain which President Truman has set as a goal for shipments to Europe and other shortage areas tills crop year. This figure is bushels more than now ap- pears in sight. It Is with the aim 'of making thU extra bushels available that Mr. Truman has launched food saving program. Anderson said that direct buying from ordered might follow last year's commodity credit corporation buying program adopt- ed when growers apparently wera withholding wheat from market la anticipation of higher prices or in an effort to hold down income tsx payments. If so, Anderson said, the pro- gram probably would contain feature under which payment vtm not made until the following Ux year, so that the transactions would not throw the sellers into higher brackets.

S. military government von Knoblock, 21 and -i- .1 .1 blond, was fined for attempting to leave Germany without proper authorization. She was discovered'in an air freight box addressed to Rolph Berndt of New York. Pilots said the discovery saved her life because she would have frozen in the untreated plane compartment high above the Atlantic. Sigrld Kraft, also blond and 21, packed her friend in the box and planned to follow her similarly if lets to take if their quarters were too cramped and razor blades with which they planned to slash their wrists if they thought they -were suffocating. Doris had asked an American soldier. Private Robert Siedentopf of Colorado Springs, Colo., to ship the box for her. It was addressed to her fiance, Rolph Berndt of New York Sigri'd's was addressed to John Walters, Laurel Hill, N. C., to whom she said she is engaged. Siedentopf told investigators he Had no idea Doris was in the box when he delivered it to the air- port last night. No charges have been filed against Anderson did not mention another feature of the 1946 program under which a 30-ccnt-a-bushel premium was paid on wheat bought from farmers. The cabinet meeting was monop- olized by the new economic survey presented by Dr. Edwin O. Nourse. chairman of President Truman's council economic advisers. Nourse told reporter it predicts this country can meet Europe's food and dollar needs without runaway inflation. Less Grain for Liquor The nation's brewers and distil- lers will get a talklng-to tomorrow about using less grain, for beer and whisky, it was learned, and tha restaurant and packinghouse in- dustries have already been holdlnit bchlnd-sccncs conferences with members of Mr. Truman's citizens' food committee. The National Restaurant asso- ciation has told Luckman that it opposes "meatless days" because they "cause endless trouble and don't save but has suc- gcstcd several other means of food- saving. A program already under "way, said Robert J. Wilson, executive sec- retary of tho restaurant group, calls for the listing of surplus food prod- ucts on restaurant menus, prompt use of leftovers, careful control or portions, and the serving of bread and butter only when requested. N. W. Airlines Head Advocates Rate Increase St. a special report showing a net profit for Nortn- west Airlines in August of the best in the line's history, and operation of two new routes at a. profit, Croil Hunter, president and general manager of Northwest Air- lines, Thursday said airlines should be getting from ten to 20 per cent more for their services. Hunter said the line did a gross business of in August, an increase of nearly over s gross business. August's net profit was more than three times that for July, he added. In line with his feeling that air- lines should be charging higher rates. Hunter sold Northwest Air- lines has asked the Civil Aero- nautics board to approve a ten per cent increase in fares with a ten per cent discount for round trips. The ten to 20 per cent increase in rates, Hunter said, still would permit the airlines "to give the best transportation bargain on the market."
