A flash was visible in Las Vegas, 75 miles from the test site. But this time there was no immediate formation of the customary atomic cloud visible here.

Marion Traendly, whose father is a prosperous flower merchant in Rowayton, Conn., and Nancy Steck, w.hose daddy owns a hotel at Sea Girt, N. J., were found here yesterday. Polke said they ran away from Penn Hall junior college and preparatory school at Chambersburg, Pa., last Monday rather than face discipline for unauthorized visits to a skating rink. Their "working girl adventure" ended abruptly after a friendly shoe salesman, two sailors, a Navy chaplain and Norwalk, Conn., police captain George Risi combined notes to locate them bere. Risi had been hot on their trail all week in a flashy 1952 model automobile supplied by Marion's father, John Traendly. He had traced them to Hagerstown, where he said they spent Monday night and where they were bought" bus tickets to Baltimore by the unidentified shoe salesman. The shoe salesman and two sailors from the Bainbridge Naval Training center who had dated the girls, saw their pictures in a paper. The salesman notified Baltimore police as did the chaplain who had been informed of the girls whereabouts by the sailors. The rest was easy. Police picked up the young ladies in an East Baltimore drug store where they planned to earn enough money for a trip to Florida. The sailors, the chaplain, Nancy's father, the shoe salesman and two teachers from the Chambersburg school confronted them in police headquarters yesterday and the adventure was over. A few tears were shed, but two dishes of ice cream and some kind words restored smiles to their pretty faces and they went home. Deep Snows, Cold Numb Much Of U.S. 18-Inch Fall In Northwestern Pa.; Citrus Crops In South Threatened By The Associated Press 'icy air gave most of the nation a numbing chill over the weekend and some eastern states had heavy snowfalls to go along with the freezing weather. Snow fell for 24 hours withoJt a letup in some sections of Pennsylvania, dumping 18 inches at Kane, in northwestern Pennsylvania. Heavy snow also smacked parts of Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland, with 15 inches reported near Cleveland. Cold, numbing weather extended I over a vast area. Florida, in the path of biting northwest winds, reported the coldest weather of the season today. Truck crops as far south as the Everglades were threatened. A low of 24 degrees was forecast for the Gainesville district and the Federal-State frost warning service said conditions for citrus in low ground spots would be "on the ragged edge." The temperature at Miami was expected to go down to 38 to 40 degrees. Threat of frost forced some California citrus growers to break out smudge pots. Temperatures hovered near the 32 mark yesterday in Southern California. The icy air responsible for the big chill flowed into the states from Canada. It continued to move eastward from the Mississippi valley today with little likelihood that temperatures would warm up soon. A southern flow of warm air promised respite for inland Texas points as well as Kansas. Missouri and Oklahoma where temperatures were below 20 yesterday. The whomping 18-inch snowfall at Kane, in Northwestern Pennsylvania, is regular winter fare for the area and residents gave it lighthearted treatment. Not so, however, in Cleveland--or rather part of Cleveland. Weirdly, three-foot snow drifts piled up in the southeastern section of the city, while on the other side of the town the snow barely topped a man's ankle. The same heavy and light snow pattern was true in Pennsylvania. Pittsburgh had only a trace of snow, but Meadville, 90 miles to the north, had 15 inches. Early morning temperatures today snowed Eau Claire, Wis., one of the coldest spots with -1. Other readings were Duluth 2, International Falls, Minn. 1, New York 31, Chicago 18. Cincinnati 18. Los Angeles 53, New Orleans. 38, Pendleton, Ore.. 13, Amarillo, Tex. 30, Seattle 51. b Hearing On Wednesday A hearing has been set for Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock in Equity Court on a demurrer to the bill of complaint filed by Mr. and Mrs. Frank K. Dorsey, this city, who claim the late Mrs. Annie E. Haines promised to leave them the property at 133 West Fourth street in return for services rendered. The demurrer was filed by Benjamin F. Shuff, executor of the estate and one of the defendants. The others include certain persons who under the residuary clause of Mrs. Haines' will were to receive the estate. The demurrer, filed through William M. Storm, attorney, said the real estate mentioned in the will was subject to a jaower of sale to be exercised by the executor. This created, the demurrer said, that and New Housing Work Starts In Ten Days Foundation Phase For Low-Cost Project Likely To Begin In Coming: Week Construction work on Frederick's second low-cost housing unit for Negroes will begin within ten days, W, Clinton McSherry, chairman of the local Housing Authority, announced. Clearing the ground on Broadway has begun and, weather permitting, it is expected that foundation construction will start next week. The seven building. 60- apartment unit must be completed by September 2, 1952, under provisions of the contract with the Frederick Construction Company, ? e n e r a 1 building organization, Failure to complete by that date carries cash penalty against the company. Total cost of the apartment development, as yet un-named, is $717,000 of which $600,500 is allotted for the contract of the Frederick Construction Company. Buildings will be of concrete block, two stories, and similar in detail to the Lincoln Apartments. Gas will be used lor heating, cooking, and supplying hot water. Rents will be based on family income, as in Lincoln " and Taney Apartments, with a $44 ceiling imposed by the Federal Kent Control agency. Families whose incomes go above the maximum figure after they move into the new u n i t , will be notified to vacate in 60 days. Applications for quarters in the new buildings will not be accepted by the Housing Authority until a few months before they are ready for occupancy, probably in May, 1952. Charles F. Bowers is architect for the project, which will be built and admini.ltered by the Frederick H o u s i n g Authority. Members of the commission, in Eddition to Mr. McSherry, are: Lewis R. Dertzbaugh, vice-chairman: Charles McC. Mathias, Sr., G. Raymond Shipley, James H. Gambrill, HI. John L. Shaw executive secretary. Four of the commissioners and Mr. Shaw have been with the Authority since its formation in 1938.

There is a chance of more snow flurries in Western Maryland today, the weather forecasters said. an equitable conversion so only the personal property cash passes to the residuary legatees. It therefore appears, the executor said, that certain husbands and wives of the persons who are to inherit under the residuary clause are improperly enjoined as defendants and have no interest therein. The executor asks that their names be stricken from the list of defendants.

An Associated Press story Sntur- dny said the allegations were forwarded by Far East Navy headquarters to Task Force 77 olT North Korea for comment. Headquarters released the following reply: "The directive apparently referred to in the Associated Press story on 17 November, dalclined Oakland. Calif., was issued by commander Task Force 77 on 11 August 1951. It was prompted by the Task Force commander's concern over the increasingly large number of requests for emergency leave then being received, which would adversely affect operations if continued. There was also concern over the demands on air and surface transportation which ultimately might prevent obviously worthy cases from being accommodated. "It was not the Task Force commander's intention to prohibit the approval of emergency leave in worthy cases, where a bonaflde emergency existed and where an individual's presence at home would serve a real purpose. "Nor was the reference to the value of Red Cross recommendation in any sense a slight to the valuable service that organisation performs. It was merely the Task Force commander's desire to emphasize that there are often many other factors which must also be weighed in considering when leave should be granted in a combat theater and that most careful screening of requests was essential if the purposes of emergency leave were not to be circumvented." The circus opened here Nov. 10 and all went well for four days. Then List Wednesday. 17-year-old Kvy Trostl. queen of the h i g h wire, fell 50 feet to her d e a t h when she missed a step d u r i n g the matinee performance.
