r Robins Takes (Continued From Page 1) munity life," Mayor Robins said in his inaugural address. "Harrisburg is a keystone community in the municipal, economic, industrial, social, moral and religious life of our Commonwealth. "We may look back over our long 236 years of community history, 157 years of borough life and our eighty - eight years of corporate city existence and note with pride what has been recorded. We are building today upon strong and proven foundations. We may thus look into the future with confidence and faith and anticipate even greater growth and development. "Increased costs cannot be escaped and it has been necessary to increase income. The new forms of taxation recently made possible for third class cities by the General Assembly must receive special study. A tax rate as low as possible, consistent with good government, is a basic pledge which I make to you and I shall not deviate. Pledces Business Administration "Civic improvements, in keeping with, a progressive Harrisburg, must be undertaken. A sound and constructive business administra tio'n as my first pledge to my fel low citizens when I accepted the candidacy for this high office. Through the medium of such a business administration, I intend to maintain a low tax rate and at the same time accomplish needed civic improvement. New forms of income will be necessary but their use will be carefully limited. "Government is a trust and officers of government are trustees, better able to carry out that trust ( when the people, as a body, take part. I intend to call upon my lei low citizens from time, to time, as standard operating procedure, to participate in our government by serving on boards and committees As Mayor, I will not only welcome but seek maximum civic participa tion. "We shall have nothing less than a clean city. Our laws must and will be enforced and our public services win oe continuously mi proved. "Our police force has accom plished a most commendable record in terms of a low crime rate, - but needs additional attention in terms of personnel and equipment and, assuredly, m terms of pay. To Enforce Traffic Laws "Traffic control which, in our busy city, has plagued ,us all, shall receive immediate attention. I am calling for strict observance of traffic laws in our city. "In addition to tax legislation, the General Assembly has enacted other laws affecting third class - cities which will require our most careful study. I have in mind particularly the legislation concerning pensions for members of our fire department. There is the possibility, after long range study, a new program for the retirement of these public servants, can be realized. "I also feel the fire department t may be materially aided in its fine vwork by a study directed toward possible regrouping of firefighting facilities with improvements and general devolpment." . In his farewell address, former Mayor Milliken gave a brief resume of his eight years in of fice. He said, "the advent of World War II caused much of my ad' ministration to be of an emerg ency character. No greater privi - ledge has ever been mine than to have assisted m organizing thous ands of our citizens into a Civilian Defense Council for this area s "Looking ahead to the end of the war, the Post War Planning Commission was formed to insure the continued growth of our city. While there are many physical im provements which would be de sirable for Harrisburg, my policy was to refrain from committing public funds and credit for any projects other than those of ma jor importance affecting the larg IB er welfare of the city. I "With 43 per cent, of the city's outstanding bonds, totaling over Ltwo million of dollars, retired during the past eight years, and A thp nrpcpnt hnnripri flAht. thp lnw est since 1923, the present financial status of the city is excel lent, and $264,000 are provided toward debt reduction in the proposed budget for the coming year." Tells Improvements He recalled the installation of the new two - way radio telephone system and commended the City Police Force for their loyalty and devotion to duty. Y He continued, "the serious con. sequences of ignoring the problem of juvenile delinquency was recognized early in my administration with the result that a representative committee was formed to study the situation, which has produced excellent results. "When I assumed the duties of Mayor in 1940, I stated: 'I am for honest, efficient and pcnnnmiral government; and I will try to make this city a better place in which to live.' With the help of countless numbers of - my fellow citizens and the loyal support of V the bureau under my direction, I ' believe I have lived - up to that promise. In conclusion, he said that al though public service brings its share of work, it is not without its share of pleasure and quoted to his audience Portia's speech, " lo thine own self be true thou cansi not men oe taise to any man." Following the introduction of the second resolution by Council, City Clerk Lawrence Burns in calling the roll, and through long habit, inadvertently called Dr. Milliken's name to vote on the measure. Immediately realizing his mistake, Burns rose to his feet and corrected the error by calling Robins' name. y Among the interested spectators at the inauguration was Mrs. Roseline Minnaugh, daughter - in - law of City Treasurer Joseph A. married to Joseph A. Minnaugh, T - Phnt.nii TIU: T7 - : ui., hi iiwicau Allien, nance, in September, and arrived in Harrisburg three weeki ago. After Robins was sworn in, Dr. Milliken presented him with the official key to the Mayor's office and the gavel, symbol of the of fice. Robins, in turn presented Dr. Milliken with a plaque on behalf of the Ex - Mayor's Association of Harrisburg, and signed by John A. F. Hall, who holds the four of fices in the organization. The invocation and the benedic tion were said by the Rev. John R. Sanderson. Riverside Methodist Church," of which the Mayor is a member, Numerous floral tributes banked the Mayor's rostrum, councilmen s desks and windows in Council Chambers. Courtroom Jammed Courtroom No. 1 at the Court house was jammed to the doors with friends, relatives and inter ested spectators. Before 8 a. m. florists began delivering baskets, vases and bouquets of flowers to the building, and when the cere mony began both large counsel tables, the bar and the floor in front of the bench were laden with the floral tributes. With Judge Rupp presiding, Deputy Prothonotary Charles V. Sellers read the proclamation of Governor James H. Duff confirm ing Judge Richards' re - election. The Orphans' Court President - Judge took his oath, then donned his gown, held by his law clerk, Richard C. Curry, and took us place on the bench with Judges Rupp and Robert E. Woodside. County . Commissioners' Clerk Charles A. Madden read the certifications of elections of the other county officials, who with the exception of Commissioner Slack, were inducted in a group. Slack had taken his oath of office before Prothonotary Leo R. Poor - man last week, as has been his custom. Mrs. Anderson, the only woman in the group, lent color to the scene, dressed in a deep blue crepe dress with a matching off - face hat trimmed in coq feathers. She wore a large orchid on her shoulder. District Attorney Shelley an nounced his list of appointments. and the following members of his staff were sworn. E. Leroy Keen, David S. Kohn, Huette F. Dowling, assistants; Richard JJ Walker, indictment clerk; Harry Farina, chief county detective; Arthur V. Wagner, assistant chief; George W. Hare and William C. Truby, special detectives James W. Reynolds, assistant, was absent because of illness, but will be sworn in later this week. Senator Taylor Present State Senator M. Harvey Tay lor was an interested spectator at the proceedings, and was the first to congratulate the suc cessful candidates. Most of the newly - installed city officials and other city employes attended the county ceremony, and Mrs. Helen U. Loewen, former Recorder of Deeds, congratulated her successor, Mrs. Anderson, and the other department heads. A. H. Stackpole, editor and pub lisher of the Harrisburg Telegraph, P. B. Rice, Daniel N. Casey, of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as wives and families of most of the officials, and many mem bers of the Dauphin County Bar, were present. Judge Rupp left immediately for the State Capitol where he was to participate at the swearing in of State Senator Harold W. Risser of the Lebanon - Lancaster district. Sheriff Weills, who left a sickbed to attend the service, returned to his home immediately. He is recovering after a major operation which he underwent several weeks ago in Philadelphia. Immediately following the induction and the few minutes spent receiving felicitations, the officials met with the Commissioners in the latter's hearing room. Slack nominated Nelley as president of the Board of Commissioners for the current four - year term. Kunkel seconded the nomination which returns Nelley as head of the board, the position he held for the last four years The board re - appointed Madden as chief clerk, and Walter R. Sohn county solicitor, and also fixed the bond of the county treasurer at S50.000. At the same time the com missioners were named to act as a board of revisions of taxes and appeals. Together .with Controller Montgomery Trace, the commissioners as county salary, board, announced only one change in wages. That was the $2500 annual salary fixed for Harvey S. Motter, ap pointed as deputy clerk of court, Each of the other department heads will confer with the com missioners and controller to set wages and personnel in the individual departments, except the District Attorney's, where legis lation fixes salaries. Judge Richards today begins his second ten year term as Orphans' court jurist. Commissioners Nel ley and Slack are starting their fourth four - year periods, while Kunkel, the minority member of the board, was elected to succeed James H. Lane. Shellev. Miles and Weils were re - elected, and Mrs. Anderson continues in the office to which she was appointed last October. Snyder follows Mrs. Marie E. Fegley as court clerk, and Stover succeeds Treasurer Elmer E. Erb. Connally Raps (Continued From Page 1) who headed a special House Committee on foreign aid. However, Chairman Eaton (R - NJ) of the House Foreign Affairs Committee asserted yesterday that he has "serious doubts" as to the constitutionality of the Herter proposal. Eaton said an independent administration agency might invade the field of foreign affairs re served by the Constitution for the President. At the same time, the New Jersey lawmaker said he regards Mr. Truman's own provisions as inadequate, adding that he looks for Congress to work out a compromise control plan. Connally, insisting that the whole program should be under the direction of the President, de clared that Mr. Truman and Mar shall are "as capable of selecting businessmen" to administer it as any other official would be. Senator Brooks (R - Ill.) is lead ing a group demanding "business" administration of the recovery program. They have made such an issue of this point that Chairman Ensminger. STARTS SECOND TERM Karl E. Richards was sworn in today for his second term as President Judge of the Dauphin County Orphans' Court. The oath was administered in the courthouse by Judge J. Paul Rupp, presiding in the absence of President Judge William M. Hargest. . Vandenberg (R - Mich.), of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has asked the Brookings In stitution to weigh all administra tive proposals and report to the committee by mid - January. Vandenberg apparently does not share Connally's views that actual administration of the program should be carried out by the State Department, although the commit - tee chairman, has said the depart - ; quest macje December 11, Pauley ment must have a direct hand in t d his personal records all decisions affecting foreign;to the appropriates unit late Phcy. iSai.urriav niht KnnwlanH.

Herter, Brooks and others have contended this means full State Department control of the administration, with the department screening any person the administrator desires to hire. Connally said on the other hand that the Marshall plan "is to intimately related to foreign matters with which the secretary of state is in touch that it properly belongs under his jurisdiction." The question of how the pro gram will be operated is expected to be the subject of extensive tes timony before the committee when it begins hearings Wednesday, probably with Marshall as the first witness.

Chief Delegate Warren R. Austin, speaking after Lie, said: It is our hope that the states whiph arp nnt hprp tnriav will snnn i join us." The official Soviet news agency had a correspondent on hand. Luis Padilla Nervo, of Mexico, was elected chairman, to serve until the General Assembly meets next September. A Soviet spokesman said in ad vance of the session that Russia still felt the U. S. sponsored Little Assembly" was uiconstitu tional and therefore would not at tend. Informed quarters said the same attitude had been taken by Czechoslovakia, Poland, Yugosla via, White Russia and the Soviet Ukraine. A represenative of the U. S. delegation maintained, however, that U. S. Delegate Warren R. Austin had not given up hope that the Soviet bloc might eventually join in the new body, which was proposed originally by Secretary of State Marshall. "Little Assembly," known offi cially as the Interim Committee of the General Assembly, was sum moned amid these other developments: The Security Council was sum moned to a session tomorrow to take up India's complaint against Pakistan, growing out of the fighting in Kashmir Province. Reports from Trieste indicated Italy and Yugoslavia had failed to agree on a candidate for governor; of the free territory by the Janu - j ary 5 deadline set by the Security Council. This means the issue will come back to the Council this week. The Council was expected to take up the Indonesian question again this week. Argentina, Canada and the Uk raine will take their seats on the Council for the first time tomor row, succeeding Brazil, Australia and Poland. The five - member U. N. Pale stine Commission will hold its first meeting here Friday. The mem bers are Denmark, Czechoslovakia, Panama, Bolivia and the Philippines.

Washington, Jan. 5, (IP) The White House reported today President Truman decided to deliver his State of the Union message to Congress in person because of "its extreme importance." Press Secretary' Charles G. Ross told reporters Mr. Truman will appear before a joint session ot the Senate and House in the House Chamber at 1.30 p. m. Wednesday. Ross added that as nearly as he could judge in advance of the completion of the message it will require about forty minutes to deliver. The President usually speaks at a rate of 120 words a minute. The first actual battle on the session Drobablv will takp nl - irp in i'f TT ProDaDly will take i place in the House over the GOP - backed tax reduction bill. House leaders want to pass the measure this to expect The tax bill under consideration It goes further than the two bills Mr. Truman vetoed last year. While the President has said nothing about his plans if he receives another tax - cutting meas ure, highly placed White House aides expect him to oppose any general slash while the national income is at a record high. They said the President . may serve notice to that effect when he addresses Congress and at the same time assert that he will not oppose alterations to make the iPt tax m more equi table. Despite the insistence of House leaders to forge ahead with a tax bill, there is strong sentiment in the Senate to hold up action until the nation's fiscal picture can be j foreign spending and domestic ap 'Propnations. However, Chairman Knutson (R - Minn.), of the tax - writing House Ways and Means Commit tee, declared yesterday that "all tolk - "if" Vli - ili - llV - lfT im nAMPi'flMift irtri talk of holding up consideration until a foreign relief program is disposed of is based on wishful thinking.' "Instead of fitting tax reduction to foreign relief we should fit such relief into tax reduction," Knutson asserted. "And this will probably be done." Most signs indicate that the foreign aid picture will not take definite shape for several months wnne uemocrats generally are supporting the Administration's Marshall Plan to spend $17,000, 000,000 during the next four years to help the sixteen non - Commu - nlst nations of western Europe re - ' gain their economic feet, Republicans are divided. Some believe thevhole program should be cut down sharply and then handled on a strict year - to - year basis. In this group are such GOP leaders as Speaker Martin who, with other party stalwarts, want Congress to set up an independent eight - member agency to handle foreign aid instead of allowing the State Department to administer it. Rescuers Seek (Continued From Page 1) of persons killed in Palestine since the United Nations voted partition on November 29. The Semiramis Hotel a three - story stone structure which Arab leaders from other Middle East countries were reported to have used as a headquarters while in Palestine was almost completely levelled. So terrific was the blast that it shook houses miles away. A siasning rainstorm with a wind of gale proportions hamp ered rescue workers during the early morning, and screams of the injured still could be heard among the ruins six hours after the ex plosion. Among tnose listed as missing was an assistant to the Spanish consul general. It was the worst such incident since the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on July 22, 1946, when nearly 100 persons were killed by explosives planted by Irgun Zvai Leumi, Jewish underground group. Details as to the manner in which the hotel was blasted were sketchy. An Arab passerby told police that three men "who looked like Jews" drove past the hotel and tossed a hand grenade into the lobby. Seconds later there was a tremendous explosion apparently from a previously planted bomb. Police, British troops and fire brigade workers rushed to the scene and" joined in the gruesome task of pawing through the wreck age in a hunt for injured. The storm which drenched the rescue workers was accompanied by brilliant flashes of lightning and heavy peals of thunderone of which was so sharp that a soldier guarding a road block fired a burst from his Sten gun in the belief that another bomb had been touched off. Troops and police in armored cars were hurried into the area where the explosion , occurred to guard against disorders, and Hagana patrols appeared on the streets in Jewish residential quarters to guard against possible Arab reprisal raids. The blasted hotel is located in the Katamon district from which Jewish residents were evacuated last week after Hagana advised that it could not guarantee them protection. Sporadic gunfire echoed throughout Jerusalem from both the old walled city and the more modern sections for hours after the blast. Main target of ye.terday's bombing in the Arab port of Jaffa was a building housing the Arab National Committee a newly formed body which was set up to deal with the present emergency situation and is sponsored by the Arab Higher Executive in co - operation with the Arab national treasury. The blast not only wrecked this building but also damaged a police station, Barclay's Bank and some 15 nearby shops. M'Artliur Seen (Continued From Page 1) dences reflected in the selection by one's neighbors for public service no more challenging responsibility than lies in the fulfillment of their trust." "I am sure," Zimmerman said, "the general meant he would perform any public service he was called upon Dy the people to render whether it be as President or in the Army. We who are supporting the general are positive that the general means that he regards any public service a responsibility he would have to fulfill." Gen. MacArthur, who maintains his voting residence in Wisconsin, made his statement in a message of congratulations on the opening of the state's centennial celebration. "As I reflect upon the events in this century of effort and pro gress," he stated, "I am proud indeed that my own life is deep ly rooted in Wisconsin's past, for I have trod those same Wisconsin paths which my father and my grandfather once trod, and take great pride in the knowledge that my opportunity for service to country found , its origin in Wis consins selection and appoint ment, as did my fathers and grandfathers before me. "For in the labyrinth of des tiny's pattern, there can be no greater satisfaction than , such as comes from the confidence re flected in the selection by one's neighbors for public service no more challenging responsibility than lies in the fulfillment of their trust." Zimmerman and former Gov. Philip F. LaFollette, who served as a colonel on Gen. Mac - Arthur's staff during the war, were included at a meeting yesterday which decided to enter a slate of MacArthur - pledged dele gates in the state's presidential preference primary next April. Mrs. Loewen (Continued From Page 1) Dwight D. Eisenhower for the Republican Presidential nomination, made this announcement. Presently serving on the Na tional Board of American Women's Voluntary Services, Mrs.' Loewen resigned last October as Dauphin county Recorder of Deeds and as vice - chairman of the Dauphin County Republican Committee which is headed by State Senator M. Harvey Taylor, State GOP Chairman. At the same time she retired as president of the Dauphin County Council of Republican Women, and her husband, Dr. James K. Loewen, resigned as GOP State Committeeman from Dauphin county. I HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH, Harrisburg, Pa, Stassen Lists (Continued From Page 1) system, marked progress in rebuilding Europe with rising standards of living, and a definite trend toward increased individual economic social and political freedom." The resultant situation in Rus sia, he said in an address before the New York Young Republican Club, would be continued low production and poor living standards "compounded rather than corrected by the ruble purge." The five points, as expounded by Stassen. are: 1. To demonstrate the continued success of the American system by "a network of inter related measures pf limited pow ers in government, of curbs on excessive credit to decrease inflationary pressures, of supervision of exports to avoid too great an imnrct of wor'd - wide shortages, of limiting of inventories to prevent hoardin1?, of economy in the civilian activities pf government, and of a variable federal fiscal protrram, qll , to check booms and avoid depression busts." He asked also "supplementary action on the housing and health and Education shortcomings." 2. Place the Marshal Plan "on a sound and business - like basis, establishing proper economic conditions to increase its prospects of success, but above all, treating it as the bipartisan program that it is, and not permitting quibbling or politics to delay and handicap or cut in half and destroy." d. "we snouia mcintain a strong military position and increase our air power and enlarge our research." 4. "Stop shipping tc Russia heavy machinery, machine tools, electrical devices, and other . apparatus and equipment which could become a part of a Communist war machine unless and until the leaders in the Kremlin show by definite agreement and action that they will cooperate in rebuilding Europe." 5. "An extensive world - w i d e campaign of ideas to combat the propaganda line of the Communists" which "should go far beyond the voice of America broadcasts." Stassen said that a positive Republican foreign policy program should include "the calling of a major United Nations convention in 1950 for the purpose of amending and rewriting the charter and strengthening the United Nations for its noble and vital task." He declared that one of the aims of the convention should be to eliminate the big power veto. Stassen called on young Republicans to bring tc the party "an expanded vision of the realities of world conditions" which he said requires "willingness to take issue within the party with those whose primary glance is backward, whose most cherished word is no, whose outlook is limited by the territorial borders of our country, or worse, by the borders of an election district. French Assembly Votes Against Amendments Paris, Jan. 5, (JP). The French National Assembly gave Premier Robert Schuman votes of confi dence today by defeating two Communist - Peasant - De Gaullist amendments to the government's anti - inflation bill. The Assembly voted down efforts to exclude 1,100,000 farmers from the tax bill and to exempt small artisans from the choice of; paying a special income tax or investing the same amount in gov ernment bonds. The votes were 306 - 273 and 308 - 272, respectively. Surgeon Is Injured As Plane Crashes Philadelphia, Jan. 5, iJP).
