Americans Pass Fifth Night On Shelf Of Glacier As Night Bars Descent. Meiringen, Switzerland, Nov. 23 (AP) A 60-man rescue squad today crawled to 11 Americans whose U. S. Army transport plane crashed on a glacier high in the Alps, but Swiss military sources said the squad had abandoned efforts to ' start removal of the passengers from their icy shelf until tomorrow morning. That meant that the passengers, including four women and an 11-year-old girl, must spend a fifth night on the 8,000 foot high glacier. Doctors were in the rescue party, however, and supplies have been dropped to ease the plight of the injured. The Swiss authorities said that it had been planned to take some of the passengers down to a half-f way hut used by skiers as a shelter, but this was called off as darkness enveloped the scene. EIGHT BELIEVED INJURED Radio communication with the plane was Ineffectual and there was no way in which authorties at Meiringen could learn the condition of the passengers. Previous reports had ' said eight were stretcher cases. The Swiss announcement said Columbian Knocked Down In Courtroom By Lawyer In Clash On Race Feeling Let Task Fit Size, Army Is To Reply To Economy Drive forceIsat LOW EBB Short Of Emergency Needs, Patterson Tells Reserves Washington, Nov. 23 (AP) The War Department Is preparing to fight any attempt by an economy-minded Congress to cut the Army below 1,070,000 men without a corresponding reduction in occupation responsibilities, it was disclosed today. This decision figured prominently in a detailed outline of the Army's legislative program given privately to a session of the National Council of the Reserve Officers Association. The reserves were told by Robert P. Patterson, Secretary of War, that the regular Army already is "stretched so thin that we really have no striking force left." Other officials noted that in Europe there remain only one division and the 38,000-man constabulary force in Germany in contrast with Russia's acknowledged 40 divisions. Meanwhile, with the National Guard and organized reserves in only the first stages of reorganization, the Army at the moment is "woefully short" of forces adequate to meet an emergency, officials contended. DECISION ON DRAFT WAITS. Anticipating congressional efforts to trim combined national defense outlays from this year's $13,000,000,000 to as low as $8,000,000,000, officials raised but left unanswered the question where cuts could be made. Likewise undecided was whether the draft will be temporarily revised in January and whether Congress will be asked to extend it beyond March 31. Volunteer enlistments, continuing downward to 4,444'in the second week of November, are running far short of regular Army requirements of 37,000 monthly replacements. The War Department was represented as firmly convinced that some form of compulsion will be imperative to maintain the regulars and build up the reserve components. Topped off by a renewed proposal for Army-Navy-air unification and for universal military training, the principal items of the Army's program are to be presented to the January session as "nonpartisan national security measures." Included in this prime category are measures which would authorize arming Latin American countries with United States weapons and sending military missions to any nation requesting them. Such missions now operate under the President's temporary war powers. OMNIBUS BILLS PLANNED. . Other War Department legislation is to be submitted as omnibus bills dealing with organization, personnel and other major subjects, rather than in piecemeal bills. Specific measures ready for submission include: Personnel To ' pay reservists as well as National Guardsmen for part-time active duty, and to provide part pay for retired reservists. Officers To make effective the recommendations of the Doolittle Board for better machinery to eliminate the unfit. Organization Revamping supply and other procedures, including maintenance and disposal of camps and other properties. The 1916 National Defense Act, under present plans, would be gradually codified rather than replaced. Specific legislation to revamp the Army's court-martial system will await recommendations of a survey committee named by the American Bar Association. WILL MEET OCCUPATION NEEDS. The regular Army strength of 1,070,000 which the War Department maintains is the minimum with which it can meet occupation commitments was authorized for next July 1. It allows 195,000 for occupation duties. It did not contemplate keeping 28,000 troops in Italy and 13,000 in Austria but the department is prepared to do so. The Army contends that without universal training to assure a continuing flow of recruits the entire emergency mobilization plan will collapse. Officials calculate that without it the projected National Guard of 682,000 men could not be recruited beyond' half strength, and there would be only about 50,000 instead of a contemplated 200,000 in "M-Day" service units to support field forces. If extension of Selective Service is asked, there will be a proviso that it terminate when universal military service becomes effective. at the suggestion of Judge Pomeroy who said: "I'll handle this." Duke asked the Judge to call a doctor and said he would pay Burke's medical expenses. Earlier, in a heated argument over the suit, Duke called Phil W. Davis, Columbian attorney, a "bald-faced liar' "I am sorry that I was unable to control myself," Duke said in a statement dictated to newsmen from his office. "Ijhave the utmost respect for Judge Pomeroy and am doubly sorry that this took place in his presence but ... I couldn't restrain myself." Burke said "It is regrettable that the enemies of white supremacy have become so desperate and wanton in their attacks upon those of us who are trying to preserve the integrity of the white race until we are not safe from violence and unprovoked attack even in the au guat chambars and presence Of s dignified and learned Sjperior Court Judge." He added that he would "of course prosecute my assailant to the fullest extent of the law." Atlanta, Nov. 23 (AP) The president of the anti-Jewish, anti-Negro Columbians was knocked to r the floor today in a judge's chamber by a husky assistant attorney general in the climax of an argument over th organization's charter. "Dad blame it, I've taken all I can from yoitl" yelled Dan Dulte as he struck Emory C. Burke with his fist, opening an inch-long gash over his left eye. His face covered with blood, Burka staggered to his feet and shouted, "you'll answer for this." Duke said he swung after a "tirade" in which Burke implied that he was not a "white anglo-sax-on public official." The flare-up climaxed a session In the chambers of Superior Judge E. E. Pomeroy in which the organization won a six-day postponement of a state suit to revoke its charter. Duke has been representing the state in this suit as he has in similar action against the Klu Klux Klan. Duke left the judicial chambers But Curbing Of Services Is Certain If Miners Stay Out Week. Well situated in comparison to most other American cities in relation to coal supplies, Cincinnati still was apprehensive yesterday of owhat might happen if the mine strike should continue through this week. City Manager W. R. Kellogg sent a request to Washington for consideration of this city as a major consuming area should emergency gas stardt to flow through the Big and Little Inch Pipe Lines, a project which might be accomplished, it was estimated in 30 days. The first major effecc of the strike to be noticed in Cincinnati was the voluntary fuel rationing policy adopted last week by the Retail Coal and Coke Dealers Association, which will deliver only to consumers with less than 10 days' supply, and will deliver only one to two tons to them. EMERGENCY FUEL SOUGHT. Another effect, less noticeable to the public, was felt at the Solid Fuels Administration offices in C'ncinnati, where Clifton D. Gleaves, Area District Manager, and his staff have been nearly swamped with applications for rations of coal from the government emergency pool. Homes and institutions serving- food and health needs may receive such rations, small consumers through their dealers, large consumers direct through the SFA. The third major development will b- noted after -midnight tonight, when government orders cutting steam-drawn railroad mileage on passenger service 25 per cent throughout the n a . i o n become effective. The seven railroads directly serving Cincinnati have announced complete cancellation of 21 trains inbound or outbound from Cincinnati, and running of two other outbound and two other inbound trains only three days a week instead of six. SLEEPERS TAKEN OFF. Pailor cars, sleepers and other special services are being discontinued in some instances. The roads have laid off many crews, and expect to have to continue to do so virtually from day to day as the strike wears on, with coal hauling nearly at a standstill, passenger service cut, other coal economies being effected and a freight embargo in the offing. Aithough no official orders from Washington on brown-out restrictions had been received by city officials yesterday, it was reported that many business houses would observe recommendations voluntarily, t Many Industries may have to start laying off employees late this week because of lack of shipping facilities, and in fewer instances for lack of fuel itself, leaders forecast. The Cincinnati Gas and Electric Co. has about a month's supply of coal. City Hall, faced with a shortage, will draw from incinerator coal supplies for several weeks, if necessary. Schools are expected to last sev- Continued On Page 3, Column 4. Justice Demanded By Ukraine In Shooting Of UN Delegate; No Robbery, Byrnes Is Told Off-Street Facilities Needed By Antiquated Designs Of Cities, Planners Hear. Worsening of the parking problem in all metropolitan centers unless solutions were sought through the medium of over-all city planning was predicted yesterday by La Verne Johnson, Washington, traffic engineer, who said he anticipated a doubling of vehicle miles traveled by 1947. In an address to members of the Ohio Planning Conference at the Hotel Netherland Plaza, Johnson pointed to off-street parking facilities as a necessity compelled by the design of cities constructed when traffic was horse-drawn. Sherwood L. Reeder, Director of Master Planning, declared in a later address that construction of the projected Northeast and Mill-creek Expressways, with the Third Street Distributor, ' would divert between 60 and 70 per cent of the 88,000 vehicles which enter Cincinnati's business district" daily. PARKING BAN EFFECTIVE. Reeder suggested that the availability of Federal and state funds for highway construction might make it desirable for Cincinnati to make construction of the expressways the first step in executing the Master Plan. Reeder dismissed as "expensive and ineffective" any attempt at solving traffic problems by widening existing highways, and pointed out the Master Plan's expressways were designed to run through "corridors" between communities, eliminating congestion. Capt. Guy York, Highway Safety Bureau, said that the ban on downtown parking had produced results which were satisfactory on the whole, but conceded that loading and unloading of trucks at business houses made it impossible to enforce the ban entirely. Establishment of parking places on the outskirts of the central business and shopping districts for use of all-day parkers might free downtown lots and garages for shoppers and other short-time parkers, Edgar Dow Gilrrran, Director of Public Utilities, declared. COUNTY ZONING PLANNED. Commenting on Cincinnati's trial with a shuttle bus service connecting parking lots at the Public Landing and Music Hall, Gilman said the experiment proved that motorists who came downtown for specific purposes did not like to park very far from their destinations. The lots usually were only 20 per cent full. Gilman said, and at least half of the persons who used them did not ride the shuttle busses. A survey of Cincinnati's Master Plan was presented in an afternoon session by Reeder, Ladislas Segoe, consultant for the plan, and T. Marshall Rainey and George Hay-ward, members of the planning staff. Hayward disclosed that Mad-isonville and Mariemont were being studied in connection with plans for community and neighborhood development. In a morning session, . Fred J. Morr, Hamilton County Commissioner, said that a county zoning bill to be submitted at the next session of the General Assembly would seek to obtain for counties the same zoning privileges now exercised by cities. The bill will have the form of an amendment to the general zoning law of 1923. HOWARD NAMED PRESIDENT. O. W. L. Coffin, Cleveland, Executive Secretary of the Urban Redevelopment Commission, said that an urban redevelopment Bill proposed by the commission was superior to bills drafted in other states and would permit municipalities to keep the initiative. In a business meeting which concluded the one-day session, delegates approved the future appointment of representatives from the organization to a committee of the Ohio Postwar Program Commission for the study of inter-reginal highway problems. John T. Howard, Cleveland, Planning Director for the City Plan Commission, succeeded Standish Meacham, Cincinnati architect, as President of the conference. Other officers elected were Charles P. Lauderbaugh, Columbus, Chairman of the Franklin County Planning Commission, First Vice President; George D. Lehman, Toledo, member of the City Plan Commission, Second Vice President, and Nicholas F. Nolan, Dayton, President of the Montgomery County Planning Commission, Third Vice President. Reeder was reelected Secretary-Treasurer. Myron D. Downs, Cincinnati, and Meacham were (elected to the Board of Directors. Lake Success, N. Y., Nov. 23 (AP) Dmitri Manuilsky, Ukranian Foreign Minister, has called on James F. Byrnes, Secretary of State, to see that American authorities "bring to justice" those responsible for the shooting of Gregory V. Stadnik, a member of the Ukrainian United Nations Delegation, Wednesday night, it was learned tonight. Informed quarters said Manuilsky, in a formal letter to Byrnes, expressed doubt that the shooting was a simple robbery, as maintained by New York police, and asked that the Secretary of State make sure that the case was given an urgent investigation. He was quoted as demanding that Byrnes Inform him "about the measures that have been taken." Manuilsky described the circumstances in which the shooting took phce, when Stadnik with another Ukrainian adviser, A. D. Voina, entered a delicatessen late Wednesday night, and said he had come to the conclusion that this "is not simple robbery." Previously, Manuilsky had told reporters that he considered it a "political crime." He declared in his letter that the shooting appeared to be "a premeditated attempt" on the life of the two Ukrainians. Two points were cited in the letter to bear out this conclusion: The shooting took place in a store, near the Hotel Plaza where Stadnik and Voina usually went at the same hour each day to buy fruit. No attempt was made to rob the Ukrainians. Manuilsky also said it was difficult to see why such a small store should have been the object of a robbery.

The President's return to resums personal direction of the finish fight he has ordered against Lewis was expected to signal a round of official conferences seeking further means to halt the total walkout of 400,000 soft coal miners which started Thursday after a partial preliminary work stoppage. Lewis still gave no sign of sending them back to work despite the contempt action. . ' With clamor growing among Congressmen for legislative action to curb strikes, Chairman Slaughter, Democrat, Missouri, of the House Surplus Property Committee called a hearing Monday to determine if the government-owned Big and Little Inch pipe lines could be converted immediately as conveyors of natural gas. The government was reported headed toward a decision next week on the question, in hopes the gas which the wartime pipe lines could carry from Texas to the . cold-weather, industrial East might help ease the fuel shortage. FREEZE NETS SLIGHT GAIN. Meantime the Solid Fuels Administration announced that soft coal production in 1943 through November 16 was 6.2 per cent Jess than in the same 1945 period. For the week ended November 16 production was 12,500.000 tons. Krug, tightening the freeze of bituminous supplies ordered in advance of the walkout, disclosed that it had netted less than two days' normal production for emergency distribution beyond the supplies then held by dealers and on docks. "This critically small emergency stock," he telegraphed to the Governors, "makes it imperative that you, by proclamation or othev means, notify the communities o your state that these supplies will soon be exhausted unless the most prudent and drastic rationing is applied by the communities themselves. SMALL URGES ECONOMY. "I cannot overemphasize the sei'J ousness of this situation. I suggest that you ask the governing authorities in the communities of your state either to act as an emergency agent or create one or more committees to so act. I suggest that you might then set up for the state a fuel conservator or a fuel conservation committee to whom such local eommitees .could turn for advice and help." In two supplements to the previous freeze order, Krug barred railroads from taking over coal in transit and notified any shippers whose mines are operating to ship coal only on government orders for emergency users. John D. Small, Civilian Production Administrator, similarly appealed to the public to save coal. "I urge every member of a household which burns gas and electricity to exercise the greatest economy in their use, for only with such cooperation will disastrous discontinuance of services in many areas be avoided," his statement said. "I urge, too, the conscientious voluntary compliance by business establishments with the terms of the orders CPA issued yesterday, and I ask for the assistance of states and municipalities in carrying out these necesjary provisions."

The rescuers reached the scene of last Tuesday'3 crash after ploughing for hours through heavy drifts, exploring carefully for deep crevasses hidden under deceiving txpanses of new snow. Erig. Gen. Ralph Tate, Deputy Commanding General of U. S. Forces in Austria, said that his son, Capt. Ralph Tate, Jr., the pilot of the plane, had advised him that all had survived the ordeal of lour freezing nights. Mrs. Tate, wife of the general and mother of the pilot, wa3 also a passenger. NEAR TOP OF FRANGE. "We don't know how many are Injured or how seriously," General Tate said, "but in any event we can't expect any of them down here before tomorrow. They have I been up there more than five days now and undoubtedly are suffering from shock and exposure." Directing the operations for the U. S. Army is Brig. Gen. Ralph Snavely, whose wife is also among the plane passengers. The transport plane is resting about 100 feet from the highest range of the Gauli glacier, in a pocket three miles southeast of the 12,149-foot Wetternhorn and IB miles northeast of the mighty 13,670-foot Jungfrau. Today was clear and sunny, and pilots of planes circling the spot said some of the passengers were seen sunning themselves. RESCUE TRAIL HAZARDOUS. Other pilots who flew over the scene reported that a fire had been started by the passengers near the door of the plane. They said the plane did not appear to have been smashed, and its wing-tip and fuselage were clearly f visible. It had apparently pancaked on the ice. Two or three of the passengers waved at the planes overhead. The rescue party resembled a huge snake as its members, roped to each other, picked their way over the treacherous glacier. New snow covered many crevasses on which the mountaineers ventured at the risk of their lives. The lead man worked his way forward, sometimes crawling on his belly, while his companions dug in to hold him with the rope in the event the snow gave way. When X - the lead man reached the end of his rope he dug in and waited until the No. 2 man followed. The movement was repeated until the entire group was pulled forward.

PAGE HI Terms Of Agreement With Miners Outlined While Court Decision On Validity Is Awaited Trend Is Toward Oil To Take Coal's Place As Main Fuel In U: S. Washington, Nov. 23 (AP) Dr. W. H. Young of the U. S. Bureau of Mines reported today that industry's trend from coal to oil for fuel had speeded up since the war, with users citing mine strikes as a major reason for the shift. The consumers give two principal reasons for changing over, he told a reporter. "One, it's more convenient and easier to handle petroleum, a fact which more than ofsets the higher cost of oil. Two, consumers say they are tired of being tied up by strikes." - Bureau statistics for 1945 showed a decline in coal consumption in comparison with the use of other fuels-going back to a trend interrupted during the war when conversion to other fuels was restricted. "We operate a canvass on a monthly basis of 12,000 large industrial plants," said Dr. Young, chief of the bureau's bituminous section. "Every week we get two to six letters from manufacturers saying that they no longer consume coal and wish to be taken off the bituminous coal section lists. These are manufacturing plants, not two-by-four buildings and apartment houses. "This conversion to gas and oil began to occur a few weeks after Japan's surrender." An official of the Solid Fuels Administration said there was little likelihood that small factories and domestic consumers would convert to oil in large numbers at present, simply because of inability to get equipment. A Bureau of Mines study of the percentage of the total energy supply contributed by mineral fuels in the United States showed that in 1936 the coal percentage was 53.3 per cent. In 1940 it was 49.3 per cent. During the war years, coal came into heavier demand, and in 1942 contributed 52.7 per cent. The coal percentage declined from 53.3 per cent in 1944 to 51.3 per cent in 1945. The percentage contributed by oil increased from 29.6 per cent in 1936 to 35.1 in 1938, declined to 28.2 in 1942. It rose to 30.7 in 1944 and to 33.1 in 1945. The contribution of natural gas increased from 10.2 per cent in 1936 to 12.1 in 1945. It then regressed in 1945 to 11.3 per cent. In terms of BTU (British thermal units,' or the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit), the annual supply of energy from coal increased from 12,989 trillions in 1936 to 16,576 trillions in 1945. conference. At the enJ of 15 days after the beginning of such negotiating conference, either party may give to the other a notice in Writing of the termination of this agreement, to be effective five days after the receipt of such notice. , . ." This is the notice of termination that Lewis gave. Attorney General Tom C. Clark contends that paragraph 15 was "amended and supplemented" by the wording of the Krug-Lewis agreement, whose first sentence says it "covers for the period of government possession the terms and conditions of employment." It is significant that the United Mine Workers Journal declared in its June issue, describing the Krug-Lewis pact, "The contract negotiated continues in effect for the period of government operation the basic national and district agreements negotiated in 1941 and all supplemental agreements thereto, including the six-day voluntary work agreement." The journal also hailed the agreement at the time as representing "the greatest economic and social gains registered by the United Mine Workers in a single wage agreement since the birth of the union in 1890." So the question was the miner-government contract legally ended? remains the, crucial one, before the district court here. The government has obtained a temporary . restraining order, requiring Lewis to call back his notice voiding the contract. He has not done so. It then cited him for contempt of court. But if the court should hold with Lewis that the contract, has been voided, the government's whole ease fails. BY GLENN THOMPSON. Washington Bureau, 1387 Nat'I Press Bid. Bl'BIJIAl, DISPATCH TO THN ENQUIRER. Washington, Nov. 23 The basic legal question in the coal mine strike is: Does a contract between the government and the miners exist today? j The government says it does. John L. Lewis says it does not. It was Lewis's statement that no contract exists which sent his 400,000 miners trooping out of the pits. The question is to be decided by the courts, but in the meantime, here are some of the facts: May 22, 1946. the government seized the coal mines under authority of the wartime Smith-Connally Act. May 29. 1946, the Krug-Lewis agreement was signed, ending the 59-day strike in the soft coal fields. The Krug-Lewis agreement began as follows: "This agreement between the Secretary of the Interior, acting as Coal Mines Administrator under the authority of Executive Order No. 9728... and the United Mine Workers of America, covers for the period of government possession the terms and conditions of employment in respect to all mines in government possession a? of March 31, 1946, subject to the national bituminous coal wage agreement, dated April 11, 1945. "(1) Provisions of national bituminous coal wage agreement preserved "Except as amended and supplemented herein, this agreement car ies forward and preserves the terms and conditions contained in all joint wage agreements effective April 1, 1941, through March 31, 1943, the supplemental agreement providing for the six-day woik week, and all the various district agreements executed between thu United Mine Workers and the various coal associations and coal companies (based upon the aforesaid basic agreement) as they existed on March 31, 1943, and the national bituminous coal wage agreement, dated April 11, 1945." There follow 15 other subsections dealing with mine safety, workmen's compensation, health and welfare, and such items. None of these makes further mention of incorporating the older contract into the new. The older contract was the wage agreement, between union and operators signed April 11, 1945. But it is paragraph 15 of that old agreemnt on which Lwis has declared the Krug-Lewis agreement ended. He says the Lewis-Krug agreement "carris forward" Paragraph 35. That paragraph says: "This agreement, dated this 11th day of April, 1945, , . . shall continue in effect hereafter, subject to the conditions and termination as herein provided. At any time prior to April 1, 1946, in the event a significant change occurs in the government wage policy, either party shall have the right to request negotiations on general wage rates. "At any time arfta- March 1, 1946, either party may give 10 days' notice in writing of a desire for a negotiating conference upon the matters outlined in paid notice. The other party agrees to attend said Boy Slays Parents, Sister, Polke Hear Rockville, Md., Nov. 23 (INS) A 14-year-old boy told Rockville police tonight that he shot and killed his father, mother and sister with a shotgun. Dead are: Ross H. Snyder, prominent Washington tax attorney; his wife, a widely known Washington clubwoman, and their daughter, Jane Ann, 12. The triple murder, according to police, occurred at the family home at Darnestown, Md., 16 miles from Washington.
