Amish Bishop Sentenced for Keeping Daughter Chained to Bed for 10 Years GOSHEN, Ind., Jan. 23--U.R-- A grim white-bearded bishop of the Amish church today was sentenced to six months in the Indiana state penal farm after he pleaded guilty to keeping his 41- year-old daughter roped and chained to a filthy bed in an unlighted room for the past 10 years.

Temperatures dropped in the Midwest to the lowest point this winter. The cold zone took the shape of a rough triangle extending from the Canadian border southward 1000 miles, into north Texas, and from there diagonally across the continent to New England. The steady stream of cold air pushing down from the Canadian Yukon brought further hardship to more than 100 Midwestern communities stricken by a critical shortage of fuel oil. The number of deaths attributed directly or indirectly to the 10-day siege of cold rose to 98 to- cape and a black buttonless suit,' prescribed by the Amish law for all male members. Sheriff Luther. W. Yoder, who made the arrest late yesterday, said Hockstettler readily admitted the charges and led him to tne unventilated and unlighted room where Miss Hockstettler was chained to a bed.

' His wife died in November. ! "It is probably unnecessary to keep her chained any longer because her mind is getting better," he conceded to the judge. The patriarch said that he first began confining Miss Hochstettler "when her mind went bad" shortly after she left school at the age of 16.

The 85-member industry advis ory committee said today it rec ognized the recommendations "as creating future shortages of gasoline." But the council believes "it is in the public interest to exert still greater effort toward meeting home heating requirements rather than meeting gasoline require-- ments." Propose 7-Day Work Week In the interests of equitable distribution, the council also asked that household and industrial consumers limit their fuel on hand to a two-week supply and that even shortage areas take no rfiore than a 30 day supply. To help emergency areas and relieve transportation bottlenecks the council proposed a seven-day work week for tank car loading crews for the next two months. Meanwhile, Secretary of Interior J. A.

The GOP doesn't need all of them to win if it can also hold all the 12 states carried four years ago by Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York. Maybe the Republicans won't win any of the additional 13, but that some of them will go Republican this year seems, at least, very likely. All of these 13 states were carried by the late Franklin D. Roose- velt'in 1944 and each went Democratic by a margin of three per cent or less, of the niajor party vote. Practical politicians play percentages. Where your · opponent showed a narrow margin of victory last "time is where you have the better chance to lick him next time if things go- well. That is why those 13 states are especially important.

Firemen were unable to-fight the blaze ef- 'fectively because of ^a, low;^ater porters that he "could not accept nomination to high political office." ' "I could not accept the nomination even under the remote circumstances that it were tendered to me," Ike told Leonard'V. Finder, publisher of the Manchester (N.. H.) Union-Leader. His announcement was in the form of a letter to Finder made public by the army department. The Union-Leader was booming Eisenhower for president. A slate of Eisenhower delegates had been entered in the New 'Hampshire presidential preference primary. Ike's positive statement came after months of speculation that he would or would not be a candidate. He had disavowed political ambitions on many occasions, but never until today with sufficient force to persuade his admirers he really meant it. General Ike generally was counted the most glamorous potential political figure in the country and many Republicans hoped to capitalize on his winning smile. Polls indicated that--on the basis of present conditions--he would have swamped.President Truman if he headed the Republican ticket in next November's presidential elec- of foreign affairs debate in the House of Commons.

The wartime prime minister and present leader of the opposition heartily endorsed Bevin's plan for a united western Europe. He reminded the House that he long had favored a united states of Europe, and repeatedly had advocated steps to bring such a union into being. The invention of the atom bomb gave the west a "breathing space" of three or four years, Churchill said, and two years of it already has passed. "The best chance of avoiding Murphy, West Frankfort; and Barbara Gillespie/ ;A11 escaped without-injury... Barr said he would secure rooms to hold- classes until 'a new school can be built.
