Hal. ferty, of the Traffic Division, the shoppers, the babies, the children, high school and college students and whole families added up to the largest crowd he had seen on a "Big Friday." One of the magnets drawing the huge throngs was the record-equaling 156-page Thanksgiving Day issue of The Inquirer packed with advertisements to guide the shoppers. The previous Thanksgiving, also with 156 pages, was the largest daily pa per in The Inquirer's history. LONG WEEKENDS Also aiding the tremendous flow, Inspector Halferty pointed out, was the fact that no schools were open and many businesses had given employes a long Thanksgiving weekend. Whole families even fathers took advantage of this and the pleas antly warm day in the mid-60s to visit the various toylands and get their Christmas shopping under way. The shopping area of Market st. was a sea of people from store fronts to curb lines and augmented traffic police details worked to make openings in the sea to slip right-turning cars safely through. Department stores and spec ialty stops opened at 9:30 A. M. and kept going until 9 P. M. POLICE FORCE BOLSTERED Philadelphia Transportation Co., after reporting a late start on the inflow, probably because many persons slept late, said it started to pile in about-10:30 A. M. and from there on "we carried an awful lot of people." But no unusual difficulties were encountered, a spokesman said. Inspector Halferty's detail of downtown traffic police was beefed up from its regular 177-officer complement to 277 starting at 7:30 A. M. and covering intersections between 6th and 23d sts. and Vine and Locust sts. . Many intersections had mul tiple coverage, such as 8th and Market sts. with three officers and 9th and Market and the southeast corner of , City Hall and other midcity intersections with two officers. . - SANTA IN MIDDLE Cars attempting to turn into packed parking lots caused mo mentary tieups as did cars bringing game fans to all the Continued on Page 20, Column 3 25 Shopping Days. Until Christmas tates Post But Rain, Gold Ease Plants Curb Fuel Use in Phila., N. J. By WILLIAM B. COLLINS Of The Inquirer Staff A mass of cold air which began moving into the area late inday was expected to ease the potentially danser- ous air pollution situation mat nas plagued PhiladelDhia ior tnree aays. . . The h i g h pollution level had caused some major industries to begin curtailing their fuel burning operations under warn ings issued earlier in the day by the City Health Department. A Weather Bureau srokesman predicted the cold air would en velop Philadelphia and dissipate the stagnant air mass bv 8 or 9 A.M. Saturday. INDEX REACHES 10 For the third dav in a row. the pollution index had risen to 10 highest on the Health Department's scale. A normal index is 2, 3 or 4. City Health Commissioner Dr. Norman R. Ingraham was optimistic that the crisis would end Saturday. "We are hopeful," Ingraham declared, "that the problem will be over within the next 12 hours." NEW JERSEY ALERT In New Jersey, the Health De partment issued a .smog alert on 'Friday and urged all unne cessary fuel consumption curtailed. Compliance was volun tary, Commissioner Roscoe Kan- dle emphasized. Asked earlier to describe conditions in Philadelphia, Ingra ham said the situation posed a "serious potential threat" to public health, but there was no evidence of serious damage yet He said the Health Depart ment had called on Group 1 in dustries seven "quite large coal-and oil-burning industries for a voluntary cutback in fuel consumption. "Some are already curtailing their combustion activities," he said.

Smog : I i orooKs Agrees To Return Here From Rhodesia By HARRY J. KARAFIN and FRANK McDEVITT Of The Inquirer Staff Sidney Brooks, bail-jumping jburglar who fled to Rhodesia, has agreed to return to the United States, District Attorney Arlen Specter said on Friday. Brooks will be deported Saturday to Johannesburg, South Africa, which has an extradi tion treaty .with the TInitpH States, Specter said. Rhodesia is not recognized by the United States. If all goes as planned Brooks should be back ia Philadelphia late Tuesday or early Wednes day. But Specter conceded that Brooks could change his mind after his arrival in Johannesburg, j MATTER OF TIME' j "But it is a matter of specula tion how long he could delay," Specter added. Specter was unable to state whether Brooks will waive ex tradition in South Africa but said that "it is now iust a mat ter of time before we get him back to this jurisdiction." He is sending two countv de tectives to Johannesburg to bring back Brooks, who gained his first international attention when charged with the theft of $100,000 from his own Federallv impounded safe deposit box in a northeast Philadelphia bank.

Cleansing rain came Friday night to sections of the smog-shrouded Eastern Seaboard, only hours after emergency measures were invoked on the third day of a potentially letnai air pollution crisis. Wafted by gentle but rising winds, the rain spread across the New York metropolitan area, where millions were living in an atmosphere unfit to breathe.- v -New York City officials said it helped some, but more welcome would be the arrival of a cold air mass sitting to the northwest of the city. They hoped that would be along by morning. NO EFFECT ON LWERSION The rain "clears the atmos. phere of fine dust particles,'?, a spokesman said. "But it has no effect on the inversion" that has held the dirty air captive since Wednesday. The effect of the air pollution was considered cumulative the longer it endured the more dan gerous it could become. -AUTO BAN URGED - New York City, Connecticut and New Jersey were placed on anti-pollution alerts in an effort to reduce a vast gush of impurl- Map, Explanation of Smog' On Page 9 ties Into stagnant air above the area. A voluntary ban on the use of autos was urged. Manhattan's skyscraper peaks were wreathed in a dirtv hai Auuners, dropping out or bright sunugnt, maae tneir way by instruments through the smog blanket. The air above Manhattan fluctuated above and below the danger mark in pollution checks, and health authorities said it rarely, if ever, had been dirtier. Hospitals reported a "definite increase" in lung complaints, attributed to the fumes. WORST IN YEARS ; '. The crisis was the worst in three years. A 10-day plague of smog in November, 1963, was" blamed for 170 to 260 deaths-many of them not traced to the air until some time after the smog lifted. r.i One of the worst smozs in t. cent years descended on Donora, Fa., in 1948. About 6000 nersons became ill and 22 died. New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller ordered a first alert against pollution for the New York metropolitan area. He acted on advice from Health Com mistloner Hollis Ingraham. ""j By use of the emergency measure.
