(AP) — The season's first intruding hurricane smacked the North Carolina and Virginia coastal areas early today and moaned on north. The big blow packed winds of 80 miles an hour or more near Its center and spun gale winds of 40 or more to a distance of 140 miles. It was expected to hit southern New Jersey in the afternoon and have some effect on the Eastern Seaboard as far north Massachusetts by nightfall, beach resorts were battening down To the north, coastal cities and tgainst gale winds and abnor mally high tides. Damage in North Carolina and Virginia, forewarned of the sudden blow that cooked up in the South Atlantic, appeared comparatively light on the basis of early reports. Two lives were reported lost. One was a North Carolinean blown from a pier near Wilmington, N.C., and swept out to sea. The other was a Norfolk County, Virginia, policeman, electrocuted by a downed power line. There were many reports of injuries—and narrow escapes.

Plying blocks of masonry nicked their heels. To the north, police at Ocean City were advising vacationers and others who could depart to leave the resort city in the face of the impending blow. Rains and high tides were flooding some coastal roads. Most ships had been advised in time to steer clear of the storm's path. And most small boats were snugged down in protected harbors. But the Norwegian tanker Marna. out of control was trapped in the storm's path 22 miles southeast of Cape Lookout, N. C. The Coast Guard reported, however, the 398-foot vessel apparently had weathered the blow. Striking Norfolk at 6:00 a. m the hurricane moved steadily northward and headed for southern New Jersey. Storm warnings were displayed as far north as the Mas- ichusetts coast. The Norfolk weather bureau reported shortly after 6 a. m. that the winds had begun to diminish, dropping to an average of 35 miles per hour with top gusts of 56 miles per hour. The wind had reached te peak at Norfolk at 4:30 a. m. with an average of 53 miles per hour and a top gust of 76 miles per hour.

The forward edge of howling j ^^' storm, one of the wildest ever recorded in this part of the world, was about 200 miles southeast of this island and was expected to hit tomorrow morning.

Adoption of the new regulations was disclosed yesterday. They call for reopening of many old loyalty cases and full investigation of employes not already thoroughly checked.

" I ua UN Demands Reds Tell Plans for Jailed PWs U.S., Britain Stand Pat On Peace Parley Split By MAX HABRELSON UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (AP)— Both the United States and Britain stood their ground today in a split over the proposed seating of India at the forthcoming Korean political conference. Indian sources conceded, however, that the United states ap peared to have the most suppor among the 16 countries trying work out a joint proposal on the composition of the conference. Britain and Canada both fee strongly that India should be among those chosen to represen the world organization at the par ley. Most of the others were re ported either indifferent or on the side of the United States. The final decision, however, wil be made by the 60-nation U.N eneral Assembly, convening here Monday.

BARNARD PANMUNJOM (AP) — The U. N. Command asked the Communists officially today if the Reds plan to hold back any Allied prisoners "Sentenced to.confinement for any reason" from the Korean War prisoner exchange. Returning Allied POWs have said others were left behind, jailed on Phony charges. There has been no official report of the number. The U. N. C. made its first official demand for an answer In a meeting of the joint U. N.-Red Repatriation Commission at Panmun- jom. The Reds gave no Immediate answer. Col. Louis C. Friedersdorff, chief Allied representative, asked confirmation that the Reds would send back all prisoners who Insist on repatriation. As the commission met, 84 Americans and 322 other Allied captives rode eagerly from Red captivity to freedom at the exchange point here. Both Reds and'H. N. accused the other of holding back prisoners entitled to go home. And on the Allied side, there was an apparent conflict between Korean and Washington sources whether all eligible Chinese POWs already had been freed Returning Allied POWs have said some left behind were jailed on phony Red charges. There has been no official report of the number. Reds Shout "Blackmail" U. s. Secretary of state John Foster Dulles warned the Reds to send back every Allied, prisoner and threatened to hold back eome Communist POWs as a safeguard against any Red holdouts. The Reds' Peiping radio to turn charged Dulles with "blackmail" and accused the Allies of illegally holding out 120 Chinese, Peiping said it has a right under the Geneva Convention to hold back any prisoners charged with an "indictable offense." But the U. S. State Department denied the Red charge, and said the truce agreement specified that ail POWs who want to return must be sent back with no exceptions. The tense debate was snarled further by conflicting reports whether all Chinese who want to RO home have been returned to the Reds at Panmunjom. The U. N. Command said Thurs^ day that its shipment of 222 Chinese that day was the last delivery of 5,405 Chinese scheduled • to return. However, Secretary of the Army Robert T. Stevens stepped from his plane in Washington after a Korean visit and said 250 Chinese Reds involved In crimes during their captivity might be held back. He said he understood that not all eligible Chinese POWs haj b°?n repatriated. Asked to explain the apparent conflict, a N. N. C. spokesman said the POW situation and ail related matters have been reported to "high authority in Washington." He said any comment would have to come from Washington.
