U. S. Will Issue 'Keep Away' Warning In Atom Test Area ~ ' . . WASHINGTON—(/P)—The United States soon will issue a new warning to ships and airplanes to stay far away from its Eniwetok atomic wea- pone proving grounds. The present "keep out" order was Issued about n year ago, prior to the tests of three atomic weapons last Spring. It was worded to cover only the calendar year 1048 and thus expires at midnight December 31. An Atomic Energy Commission spokesman said that while the new order has not. yet been, drafted It undoubtedly will be prepared within the next few 1 days. This time, the order will be phrased to run indefinitely. Actually, the test area.is covered by two zones. The inner "restricted zone" embraces Eniwetok lagoon and the atoll on which- a permanent weapon testing laboratory has been built. This zone is in the center of a'"danger area" encompassing about 39,000 square miles of water. It is the one to be- covered by the new order. In setting, aside the Inner zone, the United • States did so permanently and officially informed the United Nations of the action. Eniwetok is in the Marshall Island group, about 200 miles west and south of Bikini, where.:the 1946 "Operation Crossroads" tests of two bombs against naval vessels were conducted. Japanese Shun American Corn, Bourbon Source TOKYO—(/P)—Wflat to do with 300,000 tons of American corn? The Japanese have it and don't want 'to eat' it.

Tap Buddhists Protest Christmas Decorations TOKYO—(/P)—Christmas decorations were removed today from 20 Tokyo railway stations because of protest', by Buddhists. The Japan Buddhist Association contended that the .Yuletide. decorations in the government-owned stations violated the constitution because they constituted "religious activity." . " Japan's. cabinet agreed, and ordered the decorations removed.- : Delegate'BiE (Continued from Page 17) ,ee cleared up much of the pending matters before it. Among other things,'it voted to -ecommend to .the full council that _>arole authority be ; taken from the hands of .the governor |and placed in a three-man parole- board. Members of the board would be appointed by the • governor and . be ubject -to the ' approval of the Maryland Judicial Council. The three members would serve six year erms, on a staggered basis, with the ;erm of one .member expiring every wo years. The commission on prison control, irobatlon and parole .had recommended that a full-time, well-paid, ull time commissioner of parole be .ppointed. • The suggestion was opposed by he Prisoners Aid Association and everal other organiKittions, • The Judiciary Committee, how- ver, approved several other rccom-. mendations contained in the prison ommlsslon's report. • ' It reaffirmed-its favorable action n a bill providing for a full-time ommlssioner of correction to head lie entire state prison system. The ommlssloner would have three de- uties—a director of prisons; a di- ector o'f prisoner classification and i director of Industries and public works. The Judiciary Committee, in tak- ng up other questions, deferred ac- ion on a bill to establish the merit ystem in the constitution, and' ap- iroved a 'measure proposed by the ttorney general -to expedite trials if cases involving appeals from uspensions and revocations of driver's licenses. At present, the driver may retain his license while his case is on ap- eal in the courts. In many in- tances, drivers have succeeded in etting their cases postponed time, nd again. ' •' Chennault Withdraws Reports from Tientsin said Claire Chennault's China Air Transport Company had completed the withdrawal of its 'personnel and. dependents from that north China city. The planes did the job in a nightlpng shuttle to Tsingtao. Contrary to general'reports, Feip- ing's south field was still operable this morning. The Saint Paul, a plane chartered by the Lutheran Mission, landed there again and took off for Tsingtao with a load of passengers. (The plane Made two trips to Peiping yesterday). (In Shanghai, Chinese newspapers bannered the "fall of Peiping" In extras which also proclaimed that peace talks in north China were beginning. Shanghai was wild with rumors—among them a totally unconfirmed report that President Chiang Kai-Shek had resigned). Immediate execution of anyone violating martial law in 'Feiping was proclaimed by Fu. Normal In City Even - with guns booming just a few miles away, the one-time capital behaved unlike a city threatened with occupation any day now. It was calm—grumbling about rising food prices and the lights going out but not jittery. Advance Red troops were reported within several thousand yards of Peiping's northwestern gate. Nearby points fell—places familiar to many tourists, like the summer palace,'the Imperial hunting park, the Temple of Azure Clouds and the Temple of the Inverted Shadow. The Communists took oyer Yen- ching and Tsinghua universities, apparently without much, opposition. Robert Winter, Crawfordsville, Ind., a Tsinghua professor, telephoned friends here he thought the Reds, well-equipped and assi-ired, would move into Peiping within a cay or two. The Communist soldiers he came across were neither unfriendly nor friendly. Winter reported; just indifferent.

They like Jie support system authorized by ;he Aiken-Hope Law passed by thc Republican-controlled 80th Con- gres. • That law would provide- somewhat lower supports than the present wartime levels. This, in brief, Is what the reso'lu- lons committee proposes: That the convention. 'pass the uestion on the bureau's 21-mcm- er board of directors to decide lat- r in the light of future events. The southerners were dlsappoint- d in not .getting the committee to dopt their side, but were willing accept deferment of the issue tv the board. . They .know the board, as it now thinks, is against them.. But they believe a rising tide of farm sentiment for higher supports may cause the board to change Its mind by the time the question, comes before the new Congress. President H. L. Wingate, of the Georgia Farm Bureau and a leader of the Southern Wing, gave some indication of how the southsmers feel. • • . He said that should the bureau .finally, go on record against, southern demands, he and other ;outh- ern bureau leaders would not besi- tate to. take their case directly to Congress. • Large Crowd Sees Statue Of Fa lima An overflow of Western Maryland- crs braved Inclement weather last night to sec the enthronement ceremonies for Our Lady of Fatima at St. Patrick's Catholic Church here. The crowd, estimated at 1,200 persons, watched the procession as the statue was carried around thc church. Altar boys, visiting clergy and members of the Chief Jtistlce Taney General, Assembly of the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus, who served as a guard of honor, were In the procession!' Father Hugh, White Friars Hall, Carmelite Mona-tery, Washington, who has traveled with the statue- in its-tour of the states, related the history of the devotion of Our Lady of Patima, He urged Catholics to pray for peace and the conversion of Russia. The Very Rev: J. Lawrence Kilkenny, pas'tor of St. Patrick's, ex- judge's "of" the court' also disquali-j pressed gratitude lor the attendance ficd themselves for the same reason. | and a gave a short welcome, talk. .Father Kilkenny crowned the statue and 'officiated at the veneration House Probers (Continued from Page i) (R-SD), acting committee chairman, is influenced -by domestic politics. Chambers' Status Uncertain Mundt said it is uncertain whether the committee will question Chambers again now that the grand jury subpoena no longer detains him, or whether It will quiz -other people Chambers has said, were part of the pre-war Red underground here. A decision'will be made after consultation with the Justice Depart- whiskey, and halt all this waste of: that thc suits nre "too vague and rice used in making sake (forti- indefinite." The cases came up - before Judge Moore yesterday. He disqualified himself as a member of one of the clubs. Then, in turn, the six other Miners' Journal Says Truman 'Carried'-To Ballot Victory WASHINGTON — OT — John L. Lewis'' United Mine Workers Journal said today that strong X>emo- cratic State candidates carried President Truman to victory on November 2. In on.editorial, the Journal said: "The Democratic governors, Congressmen, and Senators in thc majority, of states ran well ahead .of President Truman, and In some cases overwhelmingly. The old custom of a. president carrying his party, ticket with him was tattered to shreds. The reverse happened.xxx "What .this all adds up to in determining who is indebted to,whom and how much is a problem that only future event can. unfold.", The editorial went on to say .the situation "does offer the ; Republi- cans a goidcn opportunity to perfect a coalition within the Senate with southern Democrats and a few Democratic Senators from the north and- west who do not see eye to eye with President Truman." It concluded: "The overwhelming majorities on- joyed by the Democrats In the House and the'- Senate' arc by no means assurance that thc Truman administration is going to have easy sailing in enacting into law the social mad-s welfare up the legislation which Truman • political promises." During the campaign, Lewis opposed • the election of President Truman but did not directly endorse Republican Candidate Thomas E. Dewey.

When the western powers came to Berlin the Russians insisted they retain control of the . radio station, saying it was their only broadcast outlet to the Soviet zone. The Russians posted armed soldiers at entrances to the building and on one was allowed in without a special pass. As the east-west position worsened in Berlin the British were urged by the other western powers to take over the station which broadcast long tirades against the western Allies. \. Feared Incident The British did not take action because of the danger of an -incident involving Britisli and Soviet troops. It also was felt the Russians might retaliate by cutting off all cable communication between Berlin and the Soviet zone.

The $50,000 machine'was developed by the Joy Manufacturing Company and purchased by the Pitts- .burgh .Coal Company. It was given a, public unveiling yesterday in. the new llathies Mine, some 15 milei south of Pittsburgh. Seven otter machines arc In use elsewhere. The Joy . continuous miner sub-' dilutes one continuous operation for the usual cutting, drilling, blasting and loading "activities. It works ilike this: ..-.-. Has Ripper Bar The 34-inch high, 25 £ -foot long machine has a ripper bar, or .head,' at .the front which tears coal 'upward from the working face and discharges it into a conveyor on the machine's back. The coal a carried to a hopper car in the rear and'then to shuttle cars. The machine is mounted on caterpillar treads and can turn to the-right or left. The ripper bar and the rwr conveyor each swing in a 45 degrea arc so the machine can mine around a corner. Commenting on the device's operation, President J. D. A. Morrow of Joy said: "The, actual speed with which coal "can'be mined varies with the characteristics of sacn seam and of every mine in that seam. It also varies with "the efficiency of the transportation sys- . tern in hauling coal away from th« machine. Results Convincing Calling the. .results "convincing," • Morrow added: "This new'machine xxx" will revolutionize the mining of coal and various other minerals." He said 1 the most immediate benefits will be Improved- safety and reducing mining costs. Morrow declared elimination of blasting, la one or the great safety contributions slnci mine roofs are not disturbed by the shock of explosions. Rowe.
