A small-seal* national scare has been stirred up by the sweaters, which bum to ashes In less than a mlnut* U Ignited. Police in various area* reported that many of the sweaters have been turned over to them. One reportedly burned whe: the wearer lit a cigaret, another when the wearer stood loo near a gas stove. New York City Fire Marshal Martin Scott said last night he would visit the plant of the Empire State Mills here today.

Large portions of the 85 billion dollar spending program were authorized by Congress In past years. Requests for new appropriations will total only about 83 billion, 10' billion less than Mr.' Truman sought for the current year. Figuring probable government spending during the coming year at 80 to 83 billion dollars, the Citizens Committee lor the Hoover Report said that will mean » minimum of $513 for each man, woman and child In the country, or »2,011 per family. The committee sent a telegram to Mr. Truman last night urging him to press for reorganisation plans which tht group said would save mor» than' tin 'billion 'dollars' a year. Johnson 6hrn* Telegram The telegram was signed by Dr. Robert L. Johnson, president of Templ« University and chairman of th« Citizens Committee, and 17 other leading members. The non- partlsaii organi&ition Is working for enactment of the government- streamlining program recommended by a commission headed by former President Herbert Hoover. Caution la Given Tha President's political advisers were said to have cautioned against a useless all-out drive for higher taxes this year. Key congressmen In both political partie* have made it clear they don't expect Congress to favor new taxes. By hitting hard on the "loophole" plugging program—which Congress repeatedly has refused to pass In other years — the administration would have a talking point in reply to attacks on already high tax rates.. Defense Called "Key" The United States defense buildup is the key to the budget. Officials say Mr. Truman will estimate direct military spending at roughly 59 billion, compared with about 44 billion for the current year. But new military appropriation requests, ofticlals say, will total ouly about 51 '.S billion dollars—compar- Templer. to Malayn n s BEilish high cornnmsioner. • Templer has been conferring with the British Prime Minister since arriving without fanfare Friday, a few minutes after Churchill.

Talks Caused Modifications ' Those modifications of the nus-' sian/•position, the spokesman said, evidently resulted from the secret Big Pour disarmament talks last month. This, he said, gave rise to a hope that discussions on atomic control In the disarmament commission might bring the East and West closer together on the subject. U. 3. Delegate Ernest Gross said Vishinsky's proposal was "double talk . . . words _without meaning." British spokesmen said Russia's latest plan could not be branded propaganda immediately.
