NBC announced yesterday that 66 bags of mail already opened contained $217,50C and another 64 bags are expected to yield an additional $200",000. The appeal was made by Ralph Edwarls on his 'This Is Your Lifs program which last week cold the stc-iy of'Dr. L. C. Jones, 70, a Negro educator and his 16,000-acre school at Piney Woods. Edwards asked a million people to rent in $1 each for continuing and expanding the school.

Nevertheless, the Gazette en( j. ' chriscmas holiday week- 'said something editorially Satur-j Tne violl , nt 'death j i3t reached day, December 25, which requires 47 - durine lhe lwo .dny, 54-hour pea reply from the honest section of liod fl . o;T1 G p m F ric i a y to mid- the Arkansas press. Said the Gazette: "The cities have virtually abandoned adequate assessments as the solution of their urgent financial problem—or at least cities have not turned to assessment reform for a solu- •£.. tion of their difficulties. "If the men who wrote the Constitution of 1874 could be asked today, Why did you limit city tax rates to 5 mills and why did you limit other tax rates? they might naturally answer with the question, Why hasn't property been assessed at figures that would yield more revenue?" Now the record will show that the c. Arkansas Gazette never said a fav- 'orable word when the Joint Tax Revision Committee was trying to draft an assessment reform measure two years ago—neither then, nor last spring when Governor Cherry was trying to decide whether to make an effort to rally public support for the bill or abandon it, nor in November when Proposed Amendment 43 finally appeared on the general election ballot and was night Sunday. Deaths in traffic numbered 362. Fires claimed 59 lives. The remaining 54 victims met death in a wide variety of mishaps. Tho trafiic toll carr.» very close to th.? National Safely Council's 1 pre-hcliday estimate of 370 fatalities. It was far heavier than lhe earlier record of 277 traffic deaths for a similar period at Christmas 1948. The overall total too, surpassed the 1943 mark of 39ti. The holiday accident death figures compared with a non-holiday weekend count by the Associated Press Dec. 10-12 of 225 traffic deaths, 3 in fires and 67 from miscellaneous mishaps.

Japan is replying with a cautious wait-and-see attitude, diplomatic sources here said. A report from Paris said Communist Poland sounded out Japan's French ambassador on the possibility of renewing diplomatic relations with Russia and Poland. Foreign Minister Mameru Shte- mitsu reportedly instructed Japan's ambassador to Paris, Kumao Kishlmura, to reply cautiously to Stanislaw G&iweski, Polish ambassador to France. Gaiweski reportedly contacted Nishimura about 10 days ago. He is said to have offered .Warsaw's , good offices in reestablishing Japanese-Soviet relations. Gaiweski's reported feeler came in the wake of propaganda from Moscow indicating the Kremlin wants ^.o "normalize'' relations with the Japanese. Mendes Crams in Fight for Appr rman Preside!

West Union at Stake on Three Votes PARIS, (UP) Premier Peirre Mendes-France is striking the future of West European Union, German rearmament and his own gov- i c-rment on three confidence votes. y Defeat on ay oe of the would mean .his downfall. In capsule, form, here are three the issues on which the votes .will be taken: An amendment permitting Eisenhower, awaiting vote on West German ment, had another, \or\s telephone consultation with Secretary of State Dulles this rnprnlng. The White House reported that Dulles told the President there was very little information on the progress of debate in the French National Assembly. The plan to rearm the Germans as an equal partner in the free Western alliance must run the course of five more votes in the assembly, and indications were that it would be late in. the day before the final decision was i cached. If the French reject the plan, lhe President may return at once to Washington to grapple with a new world situation. His personal plane, Columbine; III, is standing by at Bush Field near Augusta. If German rearmament is approved, EisenhoWer will probably stay at his holiday retreat until Jan. 3,'working on his first mes- saees to the new Congress and playing some golf. James C.

Preliminary reports to the fed- eal reserve board indicated a 2'/2 per cent increase over 1U5S figues for the first three weeks of the shoping season. Merchants had a multi-million dollar bonus this year in the form of one extra s-hoppiag day during the fourth week of Chiislmas. sales for that week might well have climbed by five per cent. One expert said on the basis of the preliminary figures that he expects buying this year to approach ami perhaps top the record $16,900,000,000. Christmas guy- ng spree of 1952. Sales lart year d.'pped $lC : 400,000,qOO. The most pessimistic government economists conceded that last year's total buying had been top>ed. But they felt the preliminary 'igures are misleading and that j'uying fell short of a new record.
