Baker Goes on Trial For Sex Slaying LOS ANGELES, Jan. 3 i/Pi-Frod Stroble, an elderly baggy-eyed baker who complains of buuing In his head, goes on trial today in the brutal sex slaying of little Linda Joyce Glucoft. He has 'pleaded innocent by reajon of , Insanity, which under California Uw moans that ho will receive n separate sanity trial if he ht convicted of murdor. Six-year-old Linda was found dead near an Incinerator In u neighbor'* yard Nov. 14. She had been choked, beaten with a hummer, stabbed with a kitchen knife and hacked with an ax. Stroble, 67, picked up in a bar after a two- day search, signed a statement that he killed her when sin ie- fcii tdvincti. | of the 1950 session was n meeting of the Semite Republican policy committoo which agreed informal- y to work with House members and the Republican national committee in drafting a statement of jurty principles. Sen. Taft o£ Ohio, policy committee chairman, said the final decision will be made* by a conference oP'Senale Republicans later. Earlier this morning, the President joined Congress members in raditional opening day prayers at he National Presbyterian Church. The Slate ot the Union docu- nent Is expected to call for vir- ually all of those sections of the Truman program which Congress shelved last year. Those include three which are expected to go no )lace this year—repeal of the Taft- tiartley law, the farm program of Secretary of Agriculture Brannan, and national health insurance. A White House official discuss- ng the forthcoming message said: "There isn't any change, but simply a strong determination to carry out the proposals the President campaigned for when he was elect- id in November, 19'IS." Hint of Tnx I'onition There may he a hint of some- hing new in the message tomor- wv — administration blessing for in excise tax cut, provided cer- ain other taxes are raised to help rase the federal deficit. Mr, Truman reportedly is ready o recommend such a program, but e is understood to be preparing special tax message which will utline the details Jater. The idea of reducing excises Is )0|)iilnr at the Cnpltol, but there s no support In sight for any tax lie-reuse. In fact, demands already re flying again for n cut in gov- rnmenl spending instead. Republicans, as well as some Democrats, are letting loose with a drum-fire of criticism of the deficit expected to total at least $5,500,000,000 for the fiscal year which ends June 30. Rep. Reed (R-NY), often a GOP spokesman on lax matters, called lor new legislation which would forbid the taking of more than 50 percent of an Individual's income in taxes. The present top is 77 percent. Reed also proposed increasing the personal exemption of all taxpayers from $600 to $700 with a like increase for dependents. Kinds I.«>N» Trillium Support Senator Taft. (R-Ohio) just back from an early round of campaign- Ing for reelection, said he found less support for the Truman program than there was at the time of 1948 presidential election. He predicted that foes of the program in Congress will be able to keep much of it from being enacted this year. Senate Republicans called a get together whether late they today ought to to discuss express A rather optimistic tone seems to 'characterize business sentiment at. the beginning of 1950, the Fed oral Reserve Bank of St. Louis reports in the January Issue of its Monthly Review. "To a large extent, the inclination to view business prospects favorably rests upon a conviction that consumers' 'expenditures will continue at a high level," the bank comments. "Consumer demand is expected to be supported by con tinued high income and the large and widely distributed amount of liquid assets, supplemented by further expansion in the use of credit." Some decline in business expenditures is anticipated in 1950. "Cap- tal outlays for new. plant facUi- .ies are unlikely to total as large as in 1949," the bank states, but acids that "expenditures for new equipment are likely to compare more favorably with those in 1949." "There is not much likelihood of additional large-scale liquidation of inventories in the months ahead," the bank says. This is in contrast to 1949 when inventory liquidation was "one of the princi' pal reasons for the decline in production and employment, in the first half of the year. Year-end stocks at the close of 1949 were on a* conservative basis." While total private expenditures nay drop below the early 1949 evels, much of the decline is ex- jected to be compensated for by additional piiblic outlays. "More noney in the form of expenditures vill be put into the economic sys- em during 19.5Q by Government han will be withdrawn in the form if revenue." The bank points out that farm ncome in 1950 is expected to total omewhttt less than in 1949 and varns that "the Importance of a urther reduction in farm income Mould not be minimized in ap- iraising the outlook. This is the >asis for an important source of otal demand for goods and serv- ces and, when curtailed, the re- crcussions historically have been elt over a.large part of our econ- my." "In the St. Louis area, nonagri- ultural employment declined as a airly large decrease in manufac- uring failed to be offset by the easonal gain in nonmanufactur- ng employment. November em- loyment was about 2 percent be- cw the year-ugo level." Industrial Activity "Industrial activity in the dis- nct in November held at about he October level if seasonal foc- ors are taken into account. Manu- acturing activity was off slightly, and construction work tapered off omewhat—both largely seasonal levelopments. Gains over October vere registered in steel and lum- wr operations, and In crude oil utput and coal mining.

Called for and delivered. 2-7658. _ 'between 'Illinois Restaurant and Kraige , T, their opposition to Mr. Truman's plans In the forrii of a positive statement of party principles. The smaller Senate OOP policy committee undertook to thresh the matter out first. The Dqmocratlc policy committee of the Senate met yesterday afternoon and stuck by an earlier decision to make the first order of Senate business a House-passed bill to repeal the federal taxes on oleomargarine. Debate on that measure is to start right after Mr. Truman leaves the Capitol tomorrow. Oleo Kiikr * MUlnkc The Democratic policy unit also recommended that the House bo allowed to net first on any legislation to cut excise taxes. The committee said it would be a mistake to try lo add a general excise reduction to the oleo bill. Some senators from butter producing states arc hopeful such strategy can kill the bill. Other senators feel that Congress should try for a cut In exclws at Ihe first opportunity. Senate majority leader .Lucas announced that the Senate would stay at work on the oleo bill until there Is a vote on passage, provided that i-omes before Jan, 20. Under an agreement reached at the last session, a bill dealing with the basing point price controversy will h»> taken up then. If action on the oleo measure has not been completed then, the bill will be brought up again as soon as the basing point Issue Is settled, Lurai said. He added that he expects no real filibuster on oleomargarine. district's major Industrial centers LO .Er a ,,,lL r ^ d " D .°, f ...^ t , l! n Nov. was 5 percent less than in October and 1 percent less than a ear ago.

This rate of open hearth operations was < points higher than during last month and 6 points abovt year-ago schedules. "Coal production in Novembet rebounded considerably with the ending of the strike during the second week of the month. The truce which lasted until the end of November permitted mines to work full time and those In the district produced 8,8 million tons, more than two and one-half times that In strike-curtailed October and only 12 percent below the output In November, 1948." BANKING—Total loan volume at the district's weekly reporting member banks continued to Increase during the four weeks to mid - December. "Average total loans for the four weeks were $33 million below the corresponding 1948 levels. This compares with a margin of 577 million In August, $67 million in September, $48 mil* lion in October and $39 million In Ihe first half of November.
