They gave even less chance of passage to an International trade organization resolution and the President's civil rights program. In his mildly-phrased message, the President didn't expand his "Fair Deal" but asked for action only on things he has talked about before, i Republicans met this immediately with a scorching statement signed by 100 House GOP members, accusing the President of committing himself "to the eventual socialization of America and the elimination of the traditional American competitive system." Call* Truman Inconniitent Sen. Taft of Ohio, who heads the Senate GOP policy committee said Mr. Truman was Inconsistent In lauding free enterprise and at the same time advocating "measures which would destroy freedom — special privileges to labor union bosses, the compulsory medical plan, the Brannan farm con- trols'and increased taxes." Even Mr, Truman's appeal for a "moderate amount" of new taxes fell On deaf ears. Chairman George (D-Ga) of the Senate Finance Committee commented: "The President said he wants a moderate amount of new taxes. Well, I want a moderate amount of economy. Maybe we can get together." Sen. MlUlkln (D-Oolo) top Republican on the finance committee, predicted flatly there will be no new taxes. He called for repeal of some excise taxes, which the President may sanction In his budget message Monday.

Traffic arrests In 1949 numbered 593, an Increase of 169, or 40 percent, over the 1948 figure of 424. All arrests by the department last year totaled 2577, an increase of 247, or 10 percent, over the 1949 total of 2330. Arrests In traffic cases, accord- Ing to the report, constituted 23 percent of all arrests made last year whllp in 1948 they were 1§ percent of the total. The difference is seen as a direct reflection of added emphasis being given In traffic- enforcement and promotion of safe-driving with three motorcycle patrolmen on duty. Burglaries declined here last year, and there was a slight drop In the number of automobile thefts, according to a compilation made for the departmental report by Police Lieutenant Tuetken. The 1949'burglary total was 179 compared to 230 in 1948, a decline last year of 51. Motorvehicle thefts last year numbered 119 compared to 121 in 1948, a decrease of 2.

Gain in Traffic Safety Shown By Fewer Deaths and Injuries Although the number of reported automobile mishaps in Alton reached a new high point in 1049, an.analysis of the accident statistics shows that the year actually marked a gain here in traffic safety. This Is the 'conclusion of Police Sgt. Robert Brown, head of the Clly Traffic Commission, who points out that while reported ucldents increased, fatalities dropped more than SO percent, compared to the preceding year of 1048, and that the toUl of traffic injuries also declined. In a brief annual report for the traffic division of th,e police department, Brown chows that for the lust eight years in Alton the average number of traffic fatal- ltle« per year was 66. Last year there were but three fatalities, leas than half the long-range average, also less than half the 1948 total of seven traffic deaths. "By the percentage, at any rate," Brown commented, "it was fcttftn traveling by automobile in Alum last year than In previous years." Sgt. Brown believed that the increased number of reported accidents last year wax duo primarily to an Increased number of cars on the streets and to more complete coverage than ever before being secured for police department accident records. The 1949 traffic accident total was 1-127, ten «ieater than the previous high of M17 in 1941. Although Alton statistics on miles traveled are unobtainable, Brown concludes that the same situation prevailed here as for the state as a whole, and that traffic injury acidents in Alton also declined In relation to miles traveled. Steadily growing truffle congestion, noted last year, seems to point definitely to more use of motorvehicles hero than ever before. According to the police, department records, the number of traffic Injury cases her? In 1949 was 24'A this figure including 3 fatalities. The records indicate 62 pe- destv'ums sveiv struck, and that 180 occupants of cars were injured. In 1948, 247 traffic injuries were listed, Including 7 fatalities. Pedestrians struck by vehicles numbered 8'j, and persons injured in vehicles, 165. The police department's December icport shows traffic accidents numbering 179 were highest for any month of 1949 by a wide margin. Next highest month was January with 149. Last February, with 87, was the lowest month. Traffic accidents of December included, 156 causing uropeiiy damage only; 17 causing Injury to occupant* of vehicles; and alx In which pedeetrlani were struck. County Farm Advi$erLi*t* ; * . *\ ' . •* ' ' '"'. - A:-^** January, Fe FamilyCare Plans at Slate HotpitahBoonted SPRINGFIELD, Jan. 8, </f> — Plans to scale down the patient load at state mental hospitals by stepping up Its "family care program" were announced today by the Illinois Welfare Department. Under the program, improved patients are placed In boarding homes. The state stands the expense. Director Fred K. Hoehler said large numbers of persons in the mental hospitals run by his department are In condition to leave, "but they have no home to go to." Hoehler said that while boarding out of patients results In little direct saving in state funds, It helps recovery from their illness. "All our experience proves that proper home environment has enormous value in helping these people complete their readjustment as normal and useful members of society," he said. The department estimated that 70 percent of those put Into homes eventually become self supporting, or nearly so. Hoehler said that In the last seven years 2800 patients have been sent to private homes, including 772 In 1949. Placements are made on a physician's recommendation. Mine Owners Continued From Page 1. visit to Illinois. While he was there, about 16,000 Illinois miners quit work. They were ordered back next week. The union boss was quoted by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as saying the Illinois walkout was evidence of "grave unrest" among the miners over the' lack of a contract. This may herald "quickie" walkouts In other areas, one by one, or it could mean that Lewis is getting ready to call another complete shutdown. The Interstate Commerce Commission has ordered railroads using coal for fuel to cnt passenger service one-third beginning next Sunday If their coal stocks are down to less than 25 days supply. About 27 percent of the nation's passenger service is provided by coal-burning trains. The others burn oil. So the maximum effect of the ICC's order would be to curtail passenger service by 9 percent. Lewis was quoted as saying the mine owners raised the price of coal recently but still are refusing to sign a new contract calling for more wages and bigger pension- welfare funds for miners. The coal contract dispute has been going on since last June.
