This was Tito's answer to the decision by the United States and Britain to pull their troops out of the Adriatic seaport Zone A and turn it over to Italian admin- istration.

Three persons were killed and two injured. A fourth death was attributed indirectly to the collision and fire. The co-owner of a nearby inn died of a heart attack. The series of e spectator counted 73 imperiled hundreds of persons attracted to the scene by the fiercely burning blaze, as shell fragments showered down. Several of the buildings at Boys Town, widely known home for boys, were struck by fragments of flying metal. 3 Sisters The explosions began about 45 minutes after the collision at p.m. (CST) and it was more than three hours before firemen could reach the vehicles and recover the three charred bodies. The victims were three sisters, Laura McClaskey, 67, and Theo McClaskey, 72, both of Geneva, 111., and Mrs. Harriet Paige, 65, of Omaha. A fourth occupant of their car, Mrs. W. H. McClaskey, 60, of Ed- monds, Wash., said after the col- lision she "somehow managed to resolve East-West tensions.

Issues Call Churchill first issued his call for top level big power talks on May 11 but then an illness forced him to the sidelines for three months. The prime minister said: "Her Majesty's government.still believes we should persevere in seeking such a meeting between the beads of governments." Declaring he had no glittering or exciting hopes about Russia, Churchill said: arms, cuts and shock. Lawrence Davis, 33, of Omaha, driver of the ammunition truck, said a car just ahead of him in the inside lane slowed down sud- denly and he swerved to the right- hand lane to avoid striking it. There his heavy truck hit the slow-moving car carrying the four women. Davis told a reporter he was going "about 50 miles per hour when my truck hit the rear of the car. I don't know how I got out of the cab." He was not seriously in- jured, Mrs. McClaskey said "there was this crunch and it seemed that im- mediately fire was everywhere." 105 Millimeter SheUi Col.

Someone else moved the third truck. 8th Tropical Storm Whirls Over Atlantic MIAMI, Fla. eighth tro- pical storm of the season whirled northeastward over the Atlantic to- day after slashing across the Flor- ida peninsula with mile-a-minute winds and heavy rains which ad- ded to the flood danger in some areas. The storm formed in the Gulf of Mexico and swept over the state on a path about 10 miles wide and 150 miles long from Punta Gorda on the west coast to Vero Beach on the Atlantic side. Much of the state already was waterlogged and rain from the tro- pical disturbance brought a threat of critical floods in some sections. At Orlando, Sen. George Smath- ers (D-Fla) wired President Eisen- hower that Florida was "suffering from what many say is the worst flood condition in 50 years." Sixteen major highways were closed to traffic because they were underwater or pocked with wash- outs. An advisory early today placed storm Hazel, so named for the eighth letter of the alphabet, about 400 miles east of Brunswick, Ga., moving northeastward at about 35 miles per hour. Highest winds were 45 tq 55 miles per hour and only a possible slight acceleration in for- ward speed was expected. ;
