LXIX.--NO. 41 Press Run Today I News--7.875 I_..,,, I f i o 4 i t I Post --9.050 f Total--16.9.25 FREDERICK, MD., SATURDAY, DECEMBER 1. 1051 TWELVE PAGES PRICE--THREE CENTS Budget For I Welfare Is deduced Substantial Drop Over Year Ago To Be Shown In Figures For Commissioners Substantial reduction in, county I relief f unUs requested for 1952 will be shown in the Board of Public "Welfare budget "to be . submitted | Monday to the Board of County Commissioners. Definite figure*, will not be made public until the budget has been filed in the county office, Rev. w. M Weaver, chairman of the Welfare Board said, but the relief expenditures for 1951 are expected to be $6,000 under the years estimate. Based on the reduced coun- tv costs for the current calendar I/ear the request for 1952 for Frederick county tax funds will be considerably under the $60,848.51 total of 1951, Rev. Mr. Weaver said- In discussing the financial situation of the Board of Public Welfare, Francis J- Connolly, director, said that amended Federal and state regulations have released some county funds for 1951. General tightening of administrative practice has kept the case load at a minimum, despite three cost-of{Jiving increases in grants, and a "salary increase for office personnel. "The Welfare staff has been reduced by one worker during the year, a fact which offsets the wage raise. Old Age Assistance cases have declined by 6.5 % over 1950 figures, Mr. Connolly explained, and Aid for Dependent Children by 16%. In the Old Age grouping, monthly checks have been increased this year from $32.22 per month to .,.$36.83. For families receiving as- Ifeistance for dependent children the average for a group with three children has gone from $75.89 to §84.91. Top family allowance under current law is $140 and only nine Frederick county families are receiving the maximum allotment. Of these, one is Negro and eight white. The $140 is an arbitrary ceiling and regardless of number of children, no family receives more than this amount. Mr. Connolly said: "In February pi!951 the Federal government for the first time matched State and local money on all cases declared to be permanently and totally disabled. The effect of this was to reduce tne General Public Assistance caseload from 80 cases to its present caseload of 45, with a resulting decrease in the County's share of expenses of approximately ?4,126.92. "The largest decrease in caseload has been in the Aid to De^pendent Children category. As- *'sistance in this category is granted to children who are deprived of support by death, incapacitation. or separation of the parents. It is our observation that as sick wage earners become able to return to work 'hey are inclined to do so with alacrity. The -welfare board has closed a number of cases in the past year by adopting the attitude that it is not right to put public tax money into family situations where there is question regarding Hhe presence of a man in the home. In cases of separation of parents, the agency holds to the fact that when parents cannot get together to arrive at a plan for the support of the children, the welfare board does not have the authority to decide what resource is available from the father. It takes the stand that, such a decision is rightfully the Court's and all such cases are referred to the State's Attorney. jw "In instances where a court order Ms passed and it is not paid regularly, the welfare board does not make up the difference in the court order unless it has written verification each month from the Court that only so much of a re- sourcp was available. "The absconding father still poses a, problem. However, during the past year legislation has been passed in Maryland and in many of the states which makes it pos- /·jwdble lor a , mother to take action ^against her husband in another slate. The law has not been in operation for a long enough time to know how effective it will be. We do know, however, that in the past states and counties have been reluctant to take legal action against a man when he is out of State because of the expense involved in extradition. Under the new law extradition is not always necessary. We at the welfare board feel very Strongly that it i.s wrong to carry a ^jj-irnotner and dependent children on public assistance when the whereabouts of the man is known in another state. We believe a plan should be worked out between the Court and the parents whereby a man would be made to support his / family." Bridges May Become G.O.P. Senate Leader WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 «P)--Spec- ulation on selection of a new ^ Republican floor leader in the Senate turned today toward S e n a t o r Bridges of New Hampshire as a possible · compromise by party members anxious to avoid a pre-Presidential campaign scrap. Bridges, top Republican in the Senate in point of service, said last night in Phoenix, Ariz., that he was not a candidate for the leadership post left vacant by the death Thursday of Senator Kenneth Wherry of Nebraska. He did not, however, rule out the possibility that he might be willing to serve in case opposing factions within, the party find themselves deadlocked over a successor to Wherry. Funeral services for Wherry are to be held Monday in Nebraska and afterwards-Republican senators are expected to begin formal discus-^ sions of the matter. An important question, still unanswered, is whether Senator Taft (R-Ohio) will take a strong stand in the choice of a new GOP minority leader. He may decide next week after attending Wherry's funeral. KILLED ON RT. 40 FROSTBURG, Dec. 1 #)--Eighty( ear-old George Brown of Avilton -was instantly killed to^ay on Route fpo in front of the home of his stepdaughter. Maryland State Police said Brown was crossing the road to obtain eggs from a chicken coop belonging to his step-daughter, Mrs. Rella Emerson. The accident took place seven miles west of Frostburg. ^ --.,--_ JUDD WOMAN CAUGHT PHOENIX, Ariz., Dec. 1 (M-Winnie Ruth Judd, the one-time "tiger woman" who killed two ^lirl friends 20 years ago. was re- Wbaptured here last night. She went back to the State Hospital for the Insane as meekly as * frightened kitten. 5,000 X-Rays Taken Here By Mobile Unit Schedule Of County Towns To Be Visited Next Week Announced Approximately 5.000 c o u n t y adults have been x-rayed by the mobile x-ray unit which is currently touring the city and county to aid in the detection of tuberculosis. The unit is being sponsored locally by the Frederick County Tuberculosis and Public Health Association, and funds raised from the sale of Christmas Seals help support the unit in this county. About 1,400 residents o£ the Emmitsburg, Thurmont, Woodsboro and Walkersville communities were surveyed by the unit during the past week when it made stops in those communities. The survey aids in the detection of tuberculosis by taking miniature x-ray pictures of individuals' chests. In connection with the sale of Christmas Seals, Governor Theodore ,R. McKeldin will make an appeal over the radio station WFBR in Baltimore tomorrow at 6:30 p. m. The glee club of the Frederick Junior Chamber of Commerce will present a 15-minute musical program over station WFMD on Tuesday evening at eight o'clock in connection with the seal sale drive, which will end on Christmas. Next week, the mobile unit will tour the western and southern sections of the county and will return to Frederick on Thursday. The schedule is: Monday, Burkittsville and Middletown: Tuesday, Brunswick and Knoxville; Wednesday, Brunswick; Thursday and Friday, Camp Derrick. Atmosphere Friendly At Big 4 Meet. ~ Secret Conversations On Armaments Cut To Be Resumed On Monday In Paris PARIS, Dec. 1 (fl»)--The Big Four met for an hour today and began in a cordial atmosphere--their secret conversations seeking to end the world arms race. The Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky was seated across the table from U. S. Ambassador Philip C. Jessup, British Minister of State Selwyn Lloyd and French Delegate Jules Moch. All had arrived separately at the office of Luis Padilla Nervo, Mexican president of the United Nations General Assembly, who presided over their session. Padilla Nervo told newsmen the four proponents of rival disarmament plans agreed on rules for getting down to the meat of the matter and decided to meet again Monday morning. No communique was issued. The Mexican statesman *said he considered the cordial atmosphere at the first meeting a good omen. In- other U, N. committees today: 1. Twelve of the 14 nations on the collective measures committee agreed upon a resolution which would permit U. N. use'of regional treaty forces, such as the North Atlantic pact armies, to resist aggression. The resolution is to be debated in the political committee beginning Monday. Burma and Egypt declined to go along with the draft. 2. The special political committee approved, 50 to five, a Yugoslav resolution calling upon Russia and her satellites to settle their differences with Yugoslavia by peaceful means in accordance with the U. N. charter. The Russian bloc voted no. The Big Four -will try to reconcile rival Soviet and western plans for disarming. The talks are meant to be absolutely secret. The idea of Syrian, Pakistani and Iraqi delegates who proposed them is that full secrecy will let each of the four lay aside his public propaganda speeches and get down to business. Western spokesmen have expressed their "encouragement" over the fact the talks are taking place at all, but there is no surplus of optimism over their chances of success in this effort at agreement. The Asian-Arab resolution which fathered the discussions reflected the dismay of small powers at the chasm splitting the eastern and western worlds on the issue of arms. New Lights To Modernize Traffic System Arrive Here Extensive Cable Work Necessary Before They Can Be Erected On One-Way Streets New traffic lights for the proposed Bentz street one-way traffic system and new progressive controls for the existing traffic light system on Market and Patrick streets arrived yesterday after being on order for some months and installation is expected to get under way in the near future. The' work is expected to take considerable time, since it involves the placing of new cables on Market street from Seventh to South, on Patrick street from Carroll to Court and on Bentz street from Seventh to South streets in addition to the erection of the lights and the new controllers. There is little likelihood that Bentz street will officially be made a one-way street until the new traffic system is in working order. Under the city's plans Bentz street will eventually carry one- way southbound traffic and Market street will carry one-way northbound traffic. Signs Required In addition to the traffic lights, certain signs must be posted designating the streets as one-way and eliminating parking at certain points. Mayor Donald B. Rice said most of these signs have arrived but no posts have been received as yet on which to place the signs. It is uncertain when the metal posts will come through and a check is to be made regarding when they may be ·xpected. The new traffic lights go on Bentz street at the intersections of Sixth, Fifth. Third, Second and All Saints streets. The existing lights will remain in operation at Seventh, Fourth, Church. Patrick and South streets with new controls. In addition there will be lights erected at the intersections of South and Jefferson streets and at Franklin and East Patrick streets, looking forward to the designation of these December Off To Cold Start December got off to a cold start early today, with a snow-like frost and a minimum temperature of 22 degrees at the airport, but the forecaster said it wouldn't last. Temperatures will move to near 60 this afternoon, he reported, and it will be mild through Monday, although the nights may be rather cool. This morning's chill continued the pattern of last half-week, which has featured very cold nights, for this time of the year. Culler Lake ice, which began to melt in the 56- degree maximum of Friday, reformed overnight. The airport placed total precipitation in November, only the year's third month in *the "wet" category, at 5.41 inches, more than three inches above normal. He said that a moderately wet December would bring the year about up to normal in the matter of precipitation, despite the long summer-fall dry spells. The 1951 precipitation total stood at exactly 37 inches as November ended. The nomal for the first 11 months is 37.57 inches. Fishing Creek reservoir water level, which pushed upward early in November when the heaviest rains occurred, was back-sliding as the month ended. It was around nine feet below normal. The moderate weather today was expected to draw out the first big pre-Christmas shopping crowd to Frederick stores. Christmas itself is only three weeks from next Tuesday. Health Department Is Looking For Sanitarian Dearth of qualified applicants for the post of sanitarian in the Frederick City-County Health Department has led to public advertisement, Dr. Forbes H, Burgess, health officer, has announced. November 9 Clarence F. Smith, son of Dr. and Mrs. William Meredith Smith, resigned from the local staff to go into military service and no replacement has been secured. Classified under the state merit system, the job offers a beginning salary of $2,820. The Board of County Commissioners, it is understood, insist upon residence within the county as essential for appointment and will not consider an applicant from a nearby county whose professional qualifications and experienct meet specification*. Bitter Cold In Foxholes SEOUL. Korea. Dec. 1 {£)-- United Nations foxhole infantrymen today battled the bitterest cold wave of the winter and for the most part fired at Communists only when the Reds probed near their positions. A. U. S. Eighth Army commu- nique said a U. N. unit yielded advance positions northwest of Yon- chon on the western front to a grenade-tossing group of Reds. Other U. N. troops threw back a platoon-sized Communist probing attack after a three-hour fight southeast of Kumsong. Action elsewhere along the frozen front up to noon Saturday was insignificant, the communique said, or "light contact with small enemy groups." United Nations and Communist jets tangled over North Korea for the sixth straight day. Australian pilots flying Meteor jets scored their biggest victocy of the war when they bagged two Red MIG jets in an afternoon battle, preliminary reports indicated. Twelve American F-80 Shooting Star jets met 16 MIGs in a second b3ttle and damaged three. All ^American planes returned safely, Fifth Air Force said. One Marine fighter plane was lost to enemy ground fire during the day. The Air Force said there was no chance that the pilot survived. Road traffic behind Red lines returned to normal Friday, after feverish activity the day before. United Nations pilots spotted about 2,000 trucks Friday and destroyed 294. Woman Drives New Car On Sidewalk BALTIMORE, Dec. 1 /P)--An automobile leaped over the curb on a busy downtown street yesterday, plunged along the sidewalk for about a quarter of a block and struck five persons. The driver of the car. 39-year-old Mrs. 'Eve Brecklirt and her husband, Bayne, were also injured. Mr. Brecklin was a passenger. All of the injured were released immediately after hospital treatment. The car, a new one, had traveled only 15 miles. Churchill Not To Ask U. S. For Money WASHINGTON,- Dec. 1 (IP)-Prime Minister Winston Churchill says he is not going to ask for money when he confers with President Truman here next month. Informed sources said yesterday Churchill has no specific »ubject» in mind for discussion. streets as one-way thoroughfares for east-west traffic next year. The traffic light system to be installed here is of the most modern type and the progressive control arrangement is expected to greatly facilitate the movement of traffic. At the present time, most of the Market street lights change from one color to another at the same time. Under the new system, they will change in progressive order. Sixth and Seventh street lights, at present working independently, will be systematized. There will be individual controllers for each light and a master controller for all of the lights on the same system. However, there will be different systems for Market and for Bentz. Master Controller It will be possible, it is understood, from the master controller to turn off all the lights, to make all blink yellow or to make all of them show red at the same time. And each light can be controlled separately, if desired. But it Mil not be possible, as officials explained it. to work the lights as those at the Square Corner are operated at times now by a policeman using a manual control. The traffic lights and controllers were purchased from the Novelty Electric Company, of Philadelphia. The installation will be in charge of City Lineman Max Kehne and the Light Department. Bentz street itself i.s about in shape for one-way use, with most widening and surfacing completed between Fourth and S e v e n t h streets. Contractor LeRoy Hoke is scheduled the first of the week to replace the curb line on the west side of the park area, near Fourth street, to its original location and to cut away a piece of curbing at what is known as Calvary Drive, between Second and Third streets, in order to slightly widen the street there. Eight Of Nine Aboard Yacht Lost At Sea Lone Survivor Tells Horror Story CHARLESTON, S. C., Dec. 1 (XT) --The only survivor of a yachting tragedy which took eight lives sobbed out last night his story of a four-day nightmare aboard a small lifeboat without food or water. In the boat with the survivor, Negro crewman Gustave Emanuel, rescuers found the bodies of the yacht's skipper and his wife, and their dying 12-year-old son. Four others died at sea and the yacht's navigator jumped overboard to end his life. Frazer had to be given an emergency blood transfusion after he was 'taken aboard the minesweeper Token, which sighted the 14-foot lifeboat while on a practice mission yesterday afternoon. The boy, son of Capt. and Mrs. Samuel A. Luttrell, was still alive when picked up, but he died before the minesweeper could reach shore. Frazer, in broken, agonized phrases, related how the grim saga began last Monday at Morehead City, N. C., where the yacht Amphi- trite put out for St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands, where the Luttrells lived. Monday night the yacht sprang a leak. Luttrell changed her course for Charleston. The harbor lights were in sight when high winds and heavy seas hurled the 96-foot craft on a reef. All nine persons aboard took to the 14-foot lifeboat. But in their haste they forgot to put aboard water and provisions. They tried to maneuver the small craft back to the yacht, but heavy seas pushed them back and high tide swept the boat out to sea. Then followed four days and nights of exposure, hunger and thirst. When first disabled, Frazer said, the Amphitrite could receive radio signals but its own SOS signals had gone unanswered. The yacht's skipper and owner. Luttrell, was a native of Washington. He was graduated from West Point in 1934. Later he resigned his Arm5 r · commission to enter the construction business. Deeds Recorded For Sales Of Property Deeds were recorded in the clerk's office for the sale of several properties. Mrs. Chrissie B. D. Bowers has sold the residence- apartment property at 101 Council street, which extends northward to the south side of West Second street, to G. Hunter, Ralph F., Charles F. and Martin L. Bowers, consideration being in the neighborhood of $49,000, according to revenue stamps. Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Hudson, Jr., and Mr. and Mrs. J. Richard -Hudson have sold to Charles H. Spurrier the property at 106-08 East Fourth street, consideration being around $8,000. Mr. and Mrs. George F. Revelle have sold to Mr. and Mrs. Roger C. Snoots a property alonig the road leading from the Frederick- Emmitsburg highway to Apple's church in Thurmont district, comprising about 65 acres and improvements, consideration being around $8,000. Two Floors Of Hotel Swept By 3.50 Fire Clerk's Prompt Action Saves Loss Of Life UNIONTOWN, Pa., Dec. 1 iff)-- Fire swept the first two floors of the four-story Beeson Hotel early today but all guests escaped-thanks to the heroic action of a middle aged night clerk. Fire Chief W. H. Raffle credited clerk Oscar Kelly with averting a tragedy. Kelly discovered the fire at 3.50 a. m. as smoke began pouring from the basement. "Oscar turned in the first alarm, then ran from room to room awakening the 20 to 25 guests," Chief Raffle declared. "Shortly after our equipment arrived at the scene all guests had been evacuated safely. Kelly did a great job." The fire chief said a short circuit in a refrigerating system apparently started the blaze. Flames followed partitions used for pipe lines. Dense smoke poured out of the hotel within minutes after Kelly summoned firemen. "Our first thought was of the guests," Raffle declared. "Then we went to work on the fire. We brought the flames under control about an hour later. The flames were stopped at the second floor." Firemen stayed at the scene more than three hours. Hundreds of residents of this western Pennsylvania community of 20,000 watched firemen bring the blaze under control. Raffle estimated damage at $20,000. Uniontown is in the center of western Pennsylvania's soft coal fields. It is about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. Satellite Armies Built Up By Russia Bulgaria, Albania Reported To Have Strong- And Tough Armies ROME, Deo. 1 M)--Russia may not have increased her own armed forces lately, but the armies of her satellites are growing by leaps and bounds. w c s I e r n Intelligence sources report. One informant for a western power, which keeps close tab on the iron curtain nations, says Red Bulgaria has built up a tough army of between 160.000 and 180.000 men spearheaded by some 500 tanks. That would be three times the 55.000-mun army limit set by Bulgaria's peace treaty with the allies after World War 11. The Bulgarian air force also has been converted to M1G-15 jets, the tighter plane which has proved so effective in Korea, the informant said. Army morale in Bulgaria i.s high, he declared, since soldiers anrt their families gel special privileges. The rest of. the country's 7,0011.000 inhabitants aic becoming restless under the Communist yoke, however, he added. This same informant said starving little Albania, now in the throes of a depression, has managed to build up an armed force o£ between 60,000 and 80.000 men. He reported that Albania lacks Bulgaria's tanks and heavier armament, but the army is tough, well- trained and in good spirits. Here again troops are accorded special favors not granted the rest of Albania's 1.150.000 people. This report fits in with the general picture o'f conditions behind the iron curtain. Western sources say the Russians have not been increasing t h e i r own forces, but the satellite armies have been strengthened recently. The training level of both 1he Russian and satellite armies has been steadily improving, these informants say. Russia herself is believed to have an army of between 105 and 17f divisions with almost a third of them f u l l y motorized or armored, westerners estimate. Present dispositions of the Soviet, Bulgarian, Albanian nnd other satellite armies do not seem to indicate any m i l i t a r y strike is in the making, according to this information. Thiimionl Soldier Return* From Korea SEATTLE, Dec. 1 (tf 1 )--Nineteen 'Maryland men were among the 1,140 army combat veterans due I here today aboard a transport j bringing them home from the fighting in Korea. The Seattle Port of Embarkation listed among the passengers: M'Sgt. Herbert C. -Berwanger, Thurmont, Report Brisk Yule Business NEW YORK, Dec. 1 f/P)--Re- ports of brisk Christmas business rolled in from many sections of the country this week. Predictions for December retail sales ran to forecasts of an all- time high in dollar volume of $15,300,000,000. There was every indication that lagging retail sales were really turning upward. It appeared that even the sadly neglected textile industry might have taken a new lease on life. Dun and Bradstreet, the business reporting service, saw Christmas shopping gaining momentum in most parts of the nation. The Friday after Thanksgiving, a bellwether of the yule season, was a good day. Tha interest in apparel, Dun and Bradstreet said, was mairtly on merchandise suitable as gifts. Department stores, they added, were doing better than specialty shops. The trade magazine Sales Management made no bones about predicting that holiday buying will boost December retail sales to an all-time high in dollar volume. But, the magazine added, "unit sales are not likely to exceed last December." Industrial production remained at its high levels. STOCKS STEADY NEW YORK, Dec. 1 (/Pi--Selective demand for stocks kept the market on a steady cours« today. SPOKE IN CUMBERLAND Gen. D. John Markey, Frederick, was the speaker at the meeting of the Cumberland Lions Club on I Wednesday. He spoke on "My Im- rpressions of tha Far East" Commissioner Backs Parole BALTIMORE, Dec. 1 VP)--Parole Commissioner A. Earle Shipley says he still believes he was rich! in recommending the release of Mrs. H i l d a B. Williams from a M a r y l a n d reformatory even though she wns under F e d e r a l indictment o n counterfeiting charges. Mrs. Williams was sentenced to a year in the Maryland Relorma- tory for Women and fined $1.000 after being convicted of abortion charges. Sentence was imposed last February. Between the time of her conviction and the date of sentence, she was indicted by a Federal grand j u r y on changes of possessing counterfeit bills. Thereafter, she started her one- year sentence in the reformatory. Last June. Shipley recommended a parole and it was granted by Governor McKeldin. This week, Mrs. Williams was convicted of the counterfeiting charges and sentenced to five years. Shipley said yesterday he told the Governor he wns "prepared to take full responsibility for this parole. I still think I was right and would do the same thing again in similar circumstances." The Governor has asked for a detailed report on the case. While preparing it. Shipley listed some of the reasons why he recommended parole. He said the woman had a "good institutional record and was eligible to be considered for parole after serving one-third of her sentence. The institution report on her application was favorable." Shipley said that the Federal charges were brought after Mrs. Williams was arrested by the state. He said she' was under a Federal bond when' she \vcnl into the reformatory and when she was released. "The Federal authorities had placed no detainer against her," the commissioner said. He also pointed out that his department "does not dispose of cases under Federal jurisdiction." Observer Corps Training Plan Meeting Held 24 In Groups Given Instructions In 'Grass Roots' Program A "grass roots" training program through which the Air Force is carrying to community level its instruction of the civilian volunteer ground observer corps wns inaugurated in Frederick county last whtn representatives of night seven of the eleven air warning stations of the county ground observer corps met in the Y. M. C. A. Tvvenly-four supervisors, chief observers and deputy observers of the corps in Fiederick county were given initial Instructions by Second Lieut. Daniel J. Oslrowski and Tech. Sergl. Ira F. Wilson, of the Air Force Filter Center in Baltimore. C o u n t y Supervisor Philip Wertheimer. who made arrangements for the meeting, was also present. The Eastern Air Defense Force, in nn announcement, said two- hour training classes will be held on an average of once every three months and will be supplemented by large-scale training exercises in which both military and CAP aircraft will be used. One of these exercises was tinder way this morning nnd a halt- diizen local CAP planes took off from the Frederick airport to participate. Members of the ground observer corps were manning their posts. It was announced last night Ihnt the next course in the training classes to be given by the mobile t r a i n i n g team from the Baltimore Filter Center would take place at the various observer stations, which arc scattered throughout the county, so that nil nt the personnel of each station can receive the instructions. The training project, according to the announcement from Eastern Air Defense Headquarters at Stewart Air Force Bane in Newburgh, N. Y., is the most detailed in scope of any yet devised for the ground observer corps. It will acquaint volunteers with every phase of the GOC work essential to supplement the radar network in spotting and tracking low-flying aircraft. The instructions will be given 300,000 supervisors and observers from more t h a n 6,000 observation posts in 18 states of t h e northeastern region of the country. Observers will be considered to have attained a m i n i m u m degree of proficiency when f l n n l tests show they can generally determine type of aircraft, height, distance and direction of flight, complete the ' aircraft flash message' 1 report to the f i l t e r center, and accurately record their information within 30 seconds. They will be considered qualified when they have completed eight hours of instruction satisfactorily and participated in at least two training exercises over a period of one year. Reds Balk At Behind Lines Inspection Admiral Joy Lists Four Points On Which Allies Will Continue To Insist MUNSAN, Korea, Dec. 1 (/P)~Vice Adm. C, Turner Joy today said the United Nations plan for behind- the-lines inspection during a Koin armistice "has run on the rocks" in the face of renewed and vehement Communist opposition. The chief U. N. negotiator made the statement after the Reds again had called the program "unacceptable.' 1 Joy opened today's session at Panmunjom with a 23-minule speech underscoring in forceful language the U. N. position that there' be no military buildup and that joint observation teams be given free access to all Korea to police the truce. The official U. N. spokesman. Brig. Gen. William P. Nuckols, told correspondents the statement was "not considered an ultimatum by the U. N. command." Joy told Red envoys the U. N. allies will continue to insist that there should be: 1. No increase of military forces by either side during an armistice. 2. No buildup of war materials during that period. , 3; An armistice commission to supervise the truce, including joint observation teams free to move the length and breadth of Korea. 4. No discussion of withdrawing troops from Korea by the armistice conference since the question must be decided by the belligerent governments. .Joy's statement apparently added nothing new to I he seven principles he proposed last Tuesday as a solution to the third item of the conference agenda--supervision of the ABC To Broadcast Sugar Bowl Game NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 1 The Sugar Bowl football game between Tennessee and Maryland New Year's Day will be broadcast over coast-ro-coast facilities of the American Broadcasting Company. Charlss Zatarain, president of the sponsoring mid-winter sports association, ssid Harry Wismer had been assigned to announce the game. LAYMAN SWORN IN , George M. Layman, former Frederick city policeman, yesterday qualified in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court as a riding deputy sheriff, under appointment of Sheriff Guy Anders. Layman succeeds George F.. Grouse, who recently was appointed a city policeman. did emphasize re- Nations assertions Year's Term Is Suspended A West Virginia man who broke into a local garage to keep warm overnight was given a one year sentence in the Maryland House of Correction by Magistrate Wilbur F, Sheffield. Jr., in Peoples Court today. The magistrate then suspended the sentence on the condition the defendant leave Frederick county. Harold Conner, of Tunnelton, W.. Va.. the defendant, was arrested on November 19 by Sgts. Potts and Phillips after he broke into the Central Garage on Abrechl place. Sgt. Potts testified Conner said at the time of the arrest he broke glass in an overhead door at the garage to get inside where it was warm. Arthur G. Strine. operator of the garage, testified he called the police after being notified someone was in his property. A charge of trespass was preferred. Cormer testified he had been drinking the night before and didn't remember a thing until he awoke on Monday morning and found himself in a garage. He said he has lived in Frederick since July 15, and since that time has been convicted of assault and drunkenness. The case was prosecuted by State's Attorney Charles U.' Price, and E. Austin James was attorney for the defendant. William Taylor, of Mt. Airy, was found not guilty of parking on a red line after testifying his car had been moved from its parking place to the red zone on West Church street near Bentz, Lt. Allen Bartgis had preferred the charge on November 23 after observing the car "in a dangerous position at the intersection." FIELD FIRE The Independents were summoned about 1:30 o'clock th'is afternoon to a field fire reported as above Rocky Springs. truce. But it pealed United that these principles will not be modified during the armistice talks. The Communists already have rejected the United Nations proposals, and Saturday afternoon they again voiced strong objections. After two hours and 37 minutes of debate, Joy --emerged from the conference tent and told correspondent?!: "As you know, we holrl" a flock of islands off the coast of North Korea. That seems to be a thorn in their side. They insist we withdraw from them," Joy told the Communists Friday the U. N. allies have no intention of abandoning the Islands. The chief U. N. negotiator said the Red delegates were "vehement" in their opposition to allowing Inspection teams behind their lines, claiming this would interfere with their internal affairs. "In other words." he said, "th» observation principle has run on the rocks." In his statement opening today's negotiating session, Joy told the Communists the U. N. allies reject "categorically" objections raised by the Reds during the past four days to the U. N. command's seven principles. He ended his statement by declaring: "We shall continue to insist on the inclusion of the foregoing principles in the armistice.
