A spokesman for the scrap dealers association said Communist customs guards were holding the truclcs at the Communist Marienborn checkpoint at the Western end of the 110-mile highway from Lsolated Berlin. He said the truckers would have to pay "huge fines" or face out*right confiscation of their trucks. He said the scrap shipments they contained already have been seized by the Red.s. "The action is strictly political," the spokesman .said. "There wa» nothing wrong with the ti'uckers shipping- documerrts. When we inquired at the k German customs office about the matter we were told 'You will have no trouble if your ministry talks to our ministry.' " He said the Communists began their, new interference with the scrap shipment.s this week on a pretext that the shipping documents were not in order. The new Communist move again.'it West Germany came as American authorities announced their firm intention of driving radio-equipped cars into Berlin •when and where they pleased. It was a direct challenge to the Communists to interfere in violation of the four-power agreements guaranteeing the Allies rights in Berlin. The gauntlet was first thrown down Thursday when the Army sent one such radio-equipped car into the Soviet sector with Rep. Ed Edmondson (D-Okla.). By early today the East one Communists had not picked it up. Allied sources in the West Germany capital of Bonn said the Western Allies were considering recommending that their ambassadors in Moscow protest direct to the Kremlin over Soviet violations of four-power agreements of Germany. Geographical Scope Of Planning First Task Of Area Commiliee; Procedure Is Outlined At Meet The job of the newly created area planning committpe is to deride if planning is to be done on an area, county or regional scale. The move toward some form of planning got off the ground Thursday night at a forum on the subject at Perkins school. Attending were members of, Russians Fear Only Germans, iRotarians Told Tom Ireland Says Spirit WillinKnens to Ficht, If Neeea •ary, Gains Respect. 17-Year Old Dies After Killing 3 KITTANNING, PA., Dec. 16 fINS)—Seventeen-year-old John Fallone, captured by an armed posse after he killed three times and wounded his one-time girl friend and a police officer, today is a victim of his own berserk rage. The love-sick boy, wounded by officers who trapped him in a deep woods about 15 miles south of Kittanning, died at Armstrong-co Memorial Hospital Thursday night. One of Fallone's victims, Gladys Small, 15, is described as slightly improved but still critical. She was wounded in the chest with one of the two rifles Fallone used to kill her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. .Jay Warren Small, and her uncle, William Allen Small. Westinghouse Rejects Offer To Ind Strike PITTSBURGH, Dec. 16 flNS) —Westinghouse Electric Corp. has rejected an offer which would have returned more than 10,000 striking members of the Independent United Electrical Workers Union to work. The union disclosed Thursday that it offered to end its eight- week-old strike, on ccmdition that the company grant a three percent raise for the balance of the current contract—until Oct. 19,56. The union said that after its members returned, negotiations on other issues could ctMitinue. Westinghouse Vice - President Robert D. Bla.sier said that the firm could not accept the UE offer because of competitive reasons. Pt. Clinton Man, Publisher, Seeks Governorship STEUBENVILLE, Dec, 1< (INS) — Robert W. Reider. Port Clinton weekly newspaper publisher, today tossed his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Ohio. Reider, a political foe of Gov. Frank J. Lausche since the 1954 campaign, made his announcement at a Steubenville meeting of the Northern Ohio Democratic Chairmen's Association. The 39-year -old Reider is a former three -term legislator from Ottawa-co and the unsuccessful 1954 Democratic nominee for Secretary: of Stale. It was his defeat in the election for that post that led Reider to attack Lausche for not aiding other Democratic nominees. In making his announcement. Tom Ireland, CICTeland author and lawyer and Just returned from trips to Germany, Russia and through South America within the year, told Rotary club members here Thursday noon that *'the Germans are the only people in the world whom the Russians fear. "On Germany, more than any one country in Western Europe, depends any serious resistance to Russian aggression. The Germans are the only people whom the Russians believe have any fight left in them. The spirit to fight and the willingness to resort to it if necessary, is the only thing in the world that the present rulers of Russia respect," Ireland said. "There is at present no one in view in Western Germany, to carry on in place of the 79 -year- old Dr. Conrad Adenauer as premier, when he retires. It is a bad omen that Dr. Adenauer felt constrained recently to visit Moscow and to allow the Russians to establish an embassy at Bonn as the base for 300 new Communist operators. Could Go With Russia "The Germans are practical people. Before choosing sides, they will pick probable winners between the Russians and ourselves. If we, give them no more hope of a virile and determined leadership than we have in the last nine years, they will go with Russia as a matter of sheer self-preservation. With the highest respect for President Eisenhower, the allied record for the last nine years has been one of continued acquiescence in insult. "We have conveniently forgotten our pledges at Yalta to re spect sovereign rights of satellite peoples of which they have been ; forcibly deprived. We have time and time again, permitted the Russian promise to respect the the committee which ultimately; will embrace a niembeiship of .36 1 and to include all political subdivisions of the county. Once a decision is reached by a planning committee on the geographical scope of the planning, it will recommend it to the county commissioners for their and; approval or rejection. Frank Dcenier, a member of^ the board of commissioners andj moderator of the panel type session, promised "we're on the way to an area planning commission." Robert Foeller, representative of the Toledo-Lucas-co planning commission, told the slightly under 100 in attendance, "planning tells you where you're going." "A planninif commission is entirely up to you," he said, "and can't be forced on you by the county or state. You must ask for it, and it must be your own program." While Sandusky now has a^ planning committee, it has no CORPSOFENGINEERSTO GET FACTS, FIGURES ON DESIREDIMPROVEMENT A public heariitg on possible improvement of Sandusky harbor will be conducted by the Corps of En- igineers, U, S.

"It has no Chamber of Commerce connection and the meeting was not sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce," Fischer .said. "The Chamber of Commerce has given financial backing only, and loaned us clerical help. That's the only way it fits into the picture."

Larimer stated he doubted if last year's record cancellation of 124,700 on Dec. 14 would be passed or equalled this year. He attributed his statement to the fact that there is a more even flow of mail this year with less slacking up of high volume at any one time.

Estes Kefauver announced ] formally today that he is a candidate for the 1956 Democratic presidential nomination. The Tennessean told a news conference he again will wage a "vigorous campaign" for the liighest office in the land even though he failed to win his party's nomination in 1952. Kefauver said in a prepared, statement that he will fight forj the nomination in "a number of slate primaries ... as many as 1 can." The statement did not identify these primaries, however. Kefauver is the third Democrat to announce formally for the party's 1956 nominati'^T. others are Adlai E. Stevenson, the 1952 standard bearer, and men were the lo-ss of 45 American heroes' lives. We meekly acquiesced when 6,000 United States prisoners in Korea were deliberately exterminated. "Senator Knowland suggested that we blockade the coast of Red China until American prisons i were released. Unless the United States stands up to its responsibilities as free world leader, we will lose the support of West Germans, at present our best, because it is the only hope, in the western world," Ireland said.
