Russians Force Plane Down LONDON. December 3 -- WT) The Moscow radio said early today that Soviet fighter planes had forced an American military transport plane to land at a Hungarian airfield "several days ago. The radio broadcast a report by Tass. the Soviet news agency, which was heard here. The report said the American plane was forced down near the Hungarian town of Papr. It added .that the plane had "violated the Romanian State frontier in the vicinity of Mesita, and then, after flying over the territory of Romania, had violated Hungarian territory in the area of the town of Gyula and tried to fly over Hungarian territory." It was forced down by Soviet Air .Force lighters "stationed in Hungary on the strength of Article 22 of- the, (Hungarian) peace treaty," the broadcast said. A U. . S. ' Air Force C-47 cargo plane with lour men aboard disappeared Nov. 19 on a flight from Munich to Belgrade. Air and ground parties searched for it in vain ovei a wide area of Yugoslavia and Italy. It was described officially as carrying diplomatic cargo to the American Embassy in Belgrade. One report from a mystery woman in Vienna said the plane had been shot down by Romanian border guards. The Romanian Foreign Office denied this. Another report to search headquarters at Treviso in northeastern Italy said a farmer had heard a violent explosion in the Italian Alps and believed it might have oeen caused by the crash of a plane. This proved incorrect. The U. S. Embassy in Belgrade said the pilot of the C-47 had reported that his plane had been fired on by Hungarian and Romanian border guards. Today's broadcast of the Tass dispatch came four days after a formal protest to the United States Government by Moscow of the alleged violation, of Siberia's borders early in November by an American bomber. In that incident, the Soviet Union claimed that Red fighters had been forced to open fire on the American bomber near Cape Ostrovnoi, on the Sea of Japan. THE SONGS Ql. Illustrated by Walt Scotl So Christmas is inevitably associated with songs of praise, devotion, joy, and exultation. We call them carols, usually. The most widely sung of oil is "0 Come All Yc Faithful," or "Adeste Fideles." Second most popular is "Silent Night, Holy Night." Tomorrow begins the story of how some of these songs w«re written. /Will 'For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." This event, so s i m p l y chronicled by St. Luke, has inspired more cele- brative music than any other event in the history of mankind. Attendance Slump At Races Is Halted BALTIMORE, Dec. 2--W--Betting and attendance at horse racing in Maryland this year stopped goinfe downhill for the first time since 1946. All of Maryland's three major and five minor flat tracks and the four harness plants experienced an upsurge in business, the first such overall prosperity in 5 years. Betting at the eight flat tracks for 150 days amounted to $88,541,116 compared with 583,279.510 last year. Attendance rose from 1,367,870 to 1.403.052. The 80 nights of harness racing drew $19,487,261 in betting, $2,613,072 more than last year. The betting on both types of horse racing amounted to a total of $108.028.377. Last year it was $100,143,879. There were a couple of ironic twists connected with this boom.

Pimlico and Laurel reaped the profits of Havre de Grace's closing. The two tracks divided the extra 25 days. Laurel's betting for 38 days rose from $17,365,790 to $30.516*411 and Pimlico's from $19,813,063 to $29,761,568 for 37 days. · Bowie. Maryland's other major track, had some people feeling sorry for it this year. It was shut out of the extra days available from Havre de Grace, and the courts finahy settled its management problems by placing the track in receivership. The Southern Maryland track ended a surprising 13-day meeting Saturday with the best average business of all, $949.794, Laurel's fall average was $776,652. and Pimlico's $863.566. Bow- ie's total betting for the meeting was $12,346.746. giving it a handle of $19.448 199 for the 25 days this year. Bowie's closing day crowd sent $1.635,615 through the betting windows, the highest one-day handle o f the year in Maryland. It also set a new record (or the 37-year-old- track, the previous single day peak being $1.466,894 on Nov. *30, 1946. FOUR 1AY BENDER BALTIMORE.
