SUBSCRIBE TO THE NUGGET Committee Counsel Tells Of Anonymous Threats To Blind His Six Children WASHINGTON, LP) — Threats that acid will be thrown into the eyes of his six children have been received by Robert F. Kennedy, chief counsel of the Senate Labor Management Committee. It was understood the FBI has been informed. Kennedy declined any comment on the threats reportedly made by an anonymous telephone call er over a period of weeks — most of them last December. Kennedy told the committee about the calls at a closed door meeting Tuesday. However, he re portedly did not ask the com mittee to take any specific steps to protect his family.

Acid was hurled into Riesel’s eyes minutes after a broadcast in which he denounced labor racketeering. NOW IS THE TIME Of The Year To Start Your Collection Of MINIATURE IVORY CARVINGS . . .

He and his wife were in the cafe wrecked by the cars after the freight* thundered off the end of the track and crashed through a brick depot. Two of the cars rumbled 350 feet and came to rest inside a building across this capi tol city’s main street. Railroad telegrapher Kenneth A. Dilly, 36, was killed when the juggernaut plowed through the middle of the -Union Pacific station. The freight cars, 12 of which were loaded with plywood and plasterboard, tore out a dead-end railway bumper guard and ripped into the depot. The two lead cars smashed on through and across the street. Four others piled up in side a building directly behind the depot, wrecking a cafe, tavern food shop and auto parts store. Police estimated the damage as in excess of a million dollars. It would be several days before a close accounting of the damage could be made, they said. Gas mains were shattered and police roped off the area. The jumble of railroad cars, parked automobiles and rubble blocked the main thoroughfare. Thurston County Coroner Hol lis Fultz said the freight cars were cut loose from a locomotive dur ing switching operations at Turn water, about two miles south. They started rolling down the grade toward the state capitol, with the locomotive crew in vain pursuit, he said.

S. Gen. By JOHN H. AVERILL WASHINGTON, UPi — The So viet Union can be deterred from “a final showdown at this time,” predicts Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor, if the United States is determined “to go to war if necessary for Berlin.” “We must be willing to go all the way down the road,” says the Army Chief of Staff. “We can’t turn back at any point.” Taylor advocated this stand Wednesday in top secret testi mony before the Senate watchdog Preparedness Subcommittee. A heavily censored transcript of his remarks was released Friday night by subcommittee chairman Lyn don B. Johnson. Asked if this country has clear cut plans to meet the Berlin crisis in any eventuality that may con front us,” Taylor said: ' “The Joint Chiefs of Staff do.” Taylor, himself a member of the joint chiefs, expressed conviction the United States and its European allies have the strength to carry out those plans. Recalling the Soviet’s blockade of Berlin in 1948, Taylor testified that many top military leaders now regard the U. S. Berlin airlift as a mistake. Force should have been tried, Taylor said, when the Soviets blocked ground routes into Berlin. “Instead we yielded to a chal lenge which may well have been a bluff, Taylor said. “We will never know to what extent the U-S.S.R. would have gone to main tain the ground blockade by force.” NOME GIRL SCOUTS ENJOY SATURDAY THEATER PARTY The Girl Scouts were treated to a theater party by their sponsors, the Home Arts Club, last Satur day morning.
