UN Adopts Western Disarmament Plan Russian Bid for A-Bomb Ban' Tossed Out by 45 to 5 Vote , By STANLEY JOHNSON PARIS (AP)— The United Nations overwhelmingly adopted the Western disarmament plan today and threw out a Russian bid for an immediate ban on atomie weapons. The vote on the whole plnn was 44 to 5, with 10 abstentions and Burma not participating. —AP WIrcpholo MOTHER AND CHILD SKKK KSCAFE KROM FIRE—A mother clutching her child in her arms leans from the third story window of a, burning Chicago, 111., apartment house as she sought aid in escaping. A few minutes later firemen rescued the pair, using ladders. Picture was made by Stephen Lasker, an amateur. The decision was taken by the 60-nation political committee after the longest single-subject debate In Assembly history, it will be formalized by a final vote of the same nations sitting in the Assembly Itself.

And the Reds said It covered all POWs in their hands. That left a gap of 7,853, a question mark which only time could answer. Task Is Tedious At the Pentagon the- tedious task of comparing names on the list with the names of those officially reported as missing proceeded slowly through the night. By early morning, however, the staff had been doubled and a spokesman In the Adutant General's office said It was likely the list would be fully processed by 5 p.m. CST today. Earlier estimates were that the Job coutd not be completed before tomorrow. Light Red Blows Rebuffed by UN Front Is Quiet Elsewhere as Allies Eye List of POWs By JOHN RANDOLPH SEOUL, Korea.

(IP, — Hoodlums tt« muscling into bands of children singing Christmas carols In public.. Scotland Yard reported today the racketeers have taken over parties of youngsters, averaging about 10 years old, and organized them Into "beats." Competitors are chased off.

But since the hoodlums took over, the kids must turn over half their collections — which usually amount to two or three pounds ($5.60 to $8.40) a nightr— for "protection."

Cut in Foreign Aid Spending Is Forecast 1 WASHINGTON <API—TWO senate appropriations committee members predicted today Congress wi] cut down on foreign aid spending next year. President Truman Is reported to have been urged by some of ate advisers to seek more than the 8'^ billion dollars in international assistance funds he requested In the last budget. Congress actually vot ed only S7,4B3.0QO,000. Senator Cordon R-Ore told a reporter he believes expenditures abroad can and will be cut below actual appropriations for 1951.

Completion of the new high school will up this value to about 51,000 monthly, according to water utility estimates. . Several years ago, the water company reduced the City's rental price on fire hydrants. 3. Blylhevllle Fire Department pays nothing for Its water. 4.
