(UP) — The government today put an embargo on exports of soft coal of the grades used for home heating. The action was taken in an effort to assure householders sufficient fuel this winter. The governments interdepartmental Coal Operating Committee put an immediate ban on shipments abroad of lump and double-screen^ ed coal, the most popular 'bituminous types. In October ,a similar bah was imposed on comparable varieties of hard coal. New England is expected to benefit particularly from the embargoes. The Northeastern section suffered shortages of both coal and fuel oil last winter and has been threatened with similar troubles this Winter. Tlie coal committee said the new embargo was ordered to "assure United States consumers of supplies of tiie grades of coal which commonly move into home use through retail channels." Commerce department officials said today's embargo will save about 500,000 tons a month for U. S. coal users. But they said it will not seriously affect foreign countries, whose needs are largely met by run-of-the-mtne soft coal. This industrial type of coal Is not affected by the ban, and there is no shortage of it.

Tlie committee has agreed tentatively on a 54,000,000,000 Income tax cut based in part on new exemptions that arc expected lo drop 6,000,000 Americans from the federal lax rolls. "All the people of the United States should be kept conscious of our fiscal and economic problems," Kaiser said. "Exempting them from taxation destroys this consciousness." In addition to a general 10 per cent cut in taxes, Kaiser said tax-^ able Incomes of less than $2,000 a year should get'special consideration and that eventually top brackets should be slashed so that no tax runs more than 50 per cent. He said corporate taxes also should be reduced. Double taxation on dividends (in the hands of the corporation, and again in the hands of the individual) should be eliminated, he said. Drowns in Bucket JACKSON, Tcntl.. Dec. 4. (UP) — A two-year old buy drowned in a. .bucket of water while playing on a back iwrch, fire department 'officials said today The child. William Dudley Arnold, was found by a brother with his head stuck Into a bucket of water. A fire department inhalator was nscd in an effort to revive UM thlld. but failed. sion to convert the Holy Land into Arab and Jewish states, Arabs contended the partition blueprint would give Russia a long-sought toehold in that part of the world. "I can't understand H," salrl Camllle Chamoun of I,cbinon,one of Ibc leading oprmncnls of partition In the recent assembly fight. The United Siiilcs fights to hold back Communism In Turkey anil Greece, he remarked, and then invites Communism lo come into Ihe Middle East. Cliamoun expressed the bellel that the partition decision had been a gain for Russia and a setback for American diplomacy for at least two reasons: 1. American endorsement of partition has started a severe deterioration of Arab-American relations 2. The provisSoif giving the Uf- Security Council ultimate authority over carrying out partition gives Russia a veto-wielding member o the council, a foot in the door o the Middle East. 'The Arab states always hav been against Communism," Cham oun said, "and so fnr Communism has gotten nowhere In the Ara' world." "Russia had nothing to lose li backing partition," he said, notin that Arab-Russian relations could n't be pushed much lower by So vict endorsement of Palfsilne par lltinn. I would lead the nation "to the irink of economic collapse." Bridges said It was "hard to com- rehnnd" how the government could ustlfy sending Icnd-lcasc shipments o Russia .when they are the type f things that might contribute the destruction of the United : tales." Lovetl said State Department of- iclals responsible for the shipments "out of town." He explained hat current commercial exports lo Russia were Ihrough normal trade channels with the Soviets taking ,itle to the goods "somewhere Inand In the United States." Lovett said the emergency relief bill contained protections against shipment of goods to Unfriendly ;ovcrnmcnU In Europe because the President would be authorized lo stop the relief program in event of 'changed conditions." Meanwhile the House began general debate on lla version of Ihe foreign aid. Of the $590,000,000 rec ommcndcd by the house foreign Affairs' Committee, the bill would provide $00.000,000 for China.
