So far 209 bodies have been recovered. Official estimates say 500 more probably are buried in a six square mile area covered by lava and volcanic ash. It may be a week before total casualties in Tuesday's eruption are known. Poisonous fumes rising from molten lava and red hot ash drove search crews from the stricken villages on the charred slopes of Hibok Hibok. Two new blasts shook the volcano Wednesday. » Searchers who approached the "··'buried villages said they saw scores of burned bodies in the hot blanket of ashes. Ten thousand people crowded into this little seaside town of 3,000 waiting for the governor to decide whether they could be evacuated to nearby Mindanao island. (Philippines News Service said 10,000 of the island's 45,000 people alrea'dy had fled.) Weather Forecast Fair tonight with lowest 45/50.

Press Run Today J Post --9.050 7,875 ,, . ,, 1 TOU1-- lb.9,25 FREDERICK, MD., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6,1951 TWO SECTIONS TWENTY-TWO PAGES SECTION PRICE--THREE CENTS ^Deadlocked Between White Russia, Greece PARIS, Dec. 6 (#)--Hopelessly deadlocked between White Russia and American-backed Greece, the United Nations General Assembly today temporarily postponed the election of an llth member of the Security Council. Earlier Chile and Pakistan were elected to fill two of the three vacancies, almost without opposition. 'fe After eight inconclusive ballots failed to give either the Russian or American candidates the required two-thirds majority for the third seat, the Assembly decided to wait before continuing its voting. The delay was intended to give the opposing factions time to try to line up support which could give victory to one or the other in the later balloting. The United States, in weeks of political maneuvering here, has · sought to line up the delegates in favor of Greece, North Atlantic treaty partner which could be expected to vote with the west on critical issues. Tobey 'Guarantees' Eisenhower Will Run WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 (^---Senator Tobey (R-NH) said today "I guarantee" that Gen.'Dwight D. Eisenhower will let his name go bei fcfore the voters in New Hampshire's ^presidential primary next March. Tobey's flat statement that the General won't disappoint his Republican backers by refusing to be represented in that contest came amid new attacks on the Truman administration. Senator Duff'(R-Pa), a leader of the organized Eisenhower-for-Presi- dont Republican group, declared "the Democrats must be thrown out" of office in the 1952 elections, and he added that Eisenhower is (·the man who can assure it. Duff set forth his- views in a speech last night at an Eisenhower rally in Manchester, N. H.

Local Hunter Hurt By Blow On His Head Charles Bohn At Baltimore Hospital With^kuU Fracture Charles Bohn. 33-year-old operator of a neighborhood grocery store on West Fourth street near Wilson avenue, is in University Hospital, Baltimore, with a fractured skull he mysteriously received on a deer hunting expedition to Garrett county. Bohn's brother, Donald, of Hagerstown, and a friend, Meredith Blank, of Shookstown, who were in the hunting party, said today they believed someone hit him in the head and robbed him of between $40 and $50 in Oakland early Monday morning. Bohn had gone to Oakland to a restaurant early Monday morning, and Blank said the proprietor of the restaurant found the Frederick man lying in the street after leaving the restaurant. Blank and Bohn were returning to their cabin at Deep Creek Lake later in the morning and Bohn stated he thought someone hit him. Bohn could not account for the injury. On Monday" evening the members of the hunting party took Bohn to Dr. Thomas F. Lusby of Oakland where he was treated for a bruise on the head. Blank said Bohn began complaining of a severe headache on Tuesday evening and was taken to Garrett Memorial Hospital at Oakland where he was x-rayed. On Wednesday, he was taken to University Hospital in Baltimore and today his condition was described as fair. Truman Keeps Eye On Tax Disclosures KEY WEST, Fla., Dec. 6 (#·)--Of- ficial silence today clothed any possible future steps President Truman may take in connection with the inquiry into Internal Revenue Bureau scandals. Close associates said he is following developments at Washington with intense interest and a willingness to "let the chips fall where they may." These associates said Mr. Truman did not request yesterday's resignation of Charles Oliphant as chief counsel to the Internal Revenue Bureau, but that he knew that the resignation was coming. Because Oliphant announced his resignation before it reached the White House, there will be no formal letter of acceptance from the President announced here. This is a White House rule. Mr. Truman told a news conference here he wants to get to the bottom of the situation and that any persons found at fault will have to suffer the consequences of their wrong-doing. Subsequently, highly placed aides said Mr. Truman had quietly sent out word that he wants a genuine "house cleaning" of any officials whose outside activities may be of such a nature as to embarrass his administration. Stepinac Asserts Right To Bishopric - KRASIC. Yugoslavia, Dec. 6 (/Pi- Archbishop Alojzijc Stepinac grimly asserted his right to the title of Archbishop today and said his release from prison changed his situation "only slightly." The Roman Catholic 'primate of Yugoslavia revealed that conditions of his release by Premier Marshal Tito's government included a ban on his performing the duties of Archbishop and confined him to this tiny Croatian village, where he was born. But in an interview, Stepinac firmly declared today: "I am the legitimate Archbishop and I am not a formed Archbishop. If the Pope wants it, I am ready to quit my archbishopric, but I will never give it up to government pressure.'" (In Rgme, Vatican circles took quick exception to the conditions of the prelate's release and declared "no civil authority" could oust him from his place as spiritual head of Yugoslav Catholicism.) Economy Silo Plant Sold To Lumber. Co. Property In Operation , HereFor Approximately 50 Years Purchased By Bowers Firm Negotiations have been completed for the sale of the real estate of the Economy -Silo and Manufacturing Company, for approximately 50 years one of Frederick's well- known establishments, located at the corner of East Sixth and East streets, to the William D. Bowers Lumber Company, it was learned today. The transaction embraces ^ Economy's silo manufacturing plant and covers the brick buildiug, with full basemen.t, and large frame sheds. There is in the neighborhood of 20,000 square feet under roof in the buildings. The property is serviced by three railroad sidings. Possession will be given in March and the Bowers Lumber Company, it is understood, will use the property for both manufacturing and storage purposes. The consideration, which it was reported was substantial, was not disclosed. The Economy Silo and Manufacturing Company has been in business since 1902. It was originally incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware and the business started in a property which was rented in Conshohocken, Pa. The late P. L. Hargett and Douglass H. Hargett were the principal organizers of the firm. Sines the members of the company were Frederick county persons, it was decided to move the business to this city and the brick building was built in · 1903 and 1904. Since that time there has been added brick factory - space and storage sheds. The firm has manufactured principally the Economy wood stave silo and also prepared vitrified glazed tile silos from tile purchased from kilns at Carbon, Ind. Water supply tanks for farm stocks .and chicken brooder houses were also manufactured at the Economy plant and attracted a number of buyers. The firm has enjoyed a widespread trade, particularly through New England states and New York, in addition to the Middle Atlantic states, dealing directly with the retail purchasers. Its reputation with regard to the quality of its silos has been firmly established through long use. There are some silos produced by. Economy which are still in use after more than 40 years. * Mrs. Harry O. Schroeder, who has been president of the company since 1936 and has been with the firm practically since it was organized, says the firm has always enjoyed a very successful business. The Economy silo output over the years has run into the thousands. When the elements were favorable and corn crops were good, silo business was at its best--generally through the late summer and early fall. In years of poor crops, the sales naturally veered off to some extent. Mrs. Schroeder succeeded to the presidency of the company following the death of Thomas H. Haller, who had succeeded P. L. Hargett. Her husband became treasurer of the firm in 1927 and has continued in that capacity since that time. The sale was negotiated through Philip Wertheimer, local real estate broker.

Urged Take More Active School Part State Grange Says Matter Should Not Be Left Entirely To 'Professionals' Education, taxes and draft deferments were among the subjects touched upon by reports and resolutions adopted this morning by delegates to the 77th annual Maryland State Grange conference. Opening the third and concluding day's session in the Francis Scott Key Hotel at 9 o'clock today, was a panel discussion on developing better Granges, led by A. B. Hamilton. Reports of the resolutions and agriculture committees followed. Salary increases for teachers provided by Maryland counties have resulted in the greatest differences in schedules since the passage of the State Equalization Law in 1922, it is stated in the annual report of the joint tax committee of the State Grange and the Farm Bureau. "We believe", the report continues, "that the public should be better informed about financing and operating public schools. Citizens as individuals, as groups, and through organizations, should take a more active part in school affairs, and not leave decisions as to policies, programs, and financing entirely to career or professional persons in the educational field". The report expresses doubt that "automatic uniform yearly increases of all teachers' 1 salaries may now be the solution to the fundamental problems of insuring proper teaching personnel" and suggests thorough study of the question. Consolidation and transportation . also should be scrutinized carefully, it is suggested. "We do not believe in toll roads except as a last resort 1 ', the report states. However, the statement is qualified--"the 1 need for dual- lane and expensive highways caused by heavy out-of-state traffic may force the necessity of toll roads in some instances. We recommend that toll bridges or toll roads of the future be projected on the basis of self-liquidation o£ the cost of some, and that when such are paid for the tolls should be taken off". Motor vehicle inspection, it is declared, is not the full answer to the problem of highway accidents. "This committee is of the opinion that the solution to highway accidents has been approached too gingerly and that there is an obligation upon society to take drastic steps to materially reduce the slaughter and destruction on our highways". Driver training for high school students' is advocated in the resolutions report. "We commend the program for giving driving instruction in high schools and urge its further extension into more high schools and further urge that persons not in high school be permitted to enroll in like classes". The tax report challenges the 1951 legislation on assessment as unsatisfactory and suggests "some workable reassessment procedure should be devised to meet objections to the present five-year rotation plan or reviews, yet avoid the bad features of annual revaluation of real estate". Development of an agricultural program is properly the function of the legislative branch of government, it was resolved. The resolutions also commended action of Senator Herbert R. O'Conor to discontinue shipments of essential materials to Communist nations; endorsed the National Grange view of the Production Marketing Administration; expansion of the soil conservation program; and favored a .referendum on daylight time. In relation to Selective Service, the group resolved: (1) Limit our requests for deferment under the draft of farm boys and workers to specially skilled operators in essential fields of production; 2 oppose attempt of persons not trained as skilled farm workers being considered for agricultural deferment; (3) urge that agriculture be represented on local draft boards which may consider deferments; (4) seek to influence public opinion to recognize the contribution to defense of boys deferred or exempted for essential work". Scheduled for mid-afternoon, installation of new officers elected Wednesday afternoon will bring ·to a close the three-day sessions. Loses Index Finger lu Butchering Mishap The first butchering accident of the season was reported happening to Louis Hammond, 15-year-old son of Mrs. Genora Hammond, 218 South Market street, who had to have the index finger of the left hand amputated at the Frederick Memorial Hospital Tuesday afternoon following a mishap at a butchering he was attending that morning. It was reported that young Hammond was observing the sausage grinding at toe butchering of Ross Mills, Lime Kiln, on Tuesday mom- ing when he caught !his left hand in the electric grinder, severely cutting the index finger. Mills, upon learning of the accident, immediately brought the youth to ttiis city for medical aid. He is getting along satisfactorily at the hospital. Time To Matt Christmas Packages Additional Trucks . TV Be Added To Expedite Service It is getting near time to mail those Christmas packages if you want to avoid the jam that develops- in the last few weeks before the holiday. Postmaster James A. Grove indicated as much today when he said that mail of all type--and particularly parcel post packages--is coming into the local post office in greatly increased volume. Four trucks are kept busy shuttling back and forth between the post oflice, homes and business houses with parcels. A fifth truck will be added the end of this week and a sixth truck will be pressed into service next week. The postmaster said about 30 em- ployes will be added to the rolls for the Christmas rush around December 17. But even then, he said, it may be impossible to clear the post office by Christmas Eve unless patrons cooperate and Ret both packages and cards into the mails early. In past years, the postmaster continued, thousands of greeting cards and letters have been undelivered because of incomplete or wrongly addressed mail. To facilitate the handling of mail, the postmaster suggests: After addressing and stamping your letters, re-check them to see that the addresses are correct. Separate local letters nnd out-of-town letters into two packs and put a rubber baud around each. Mail first-class all letters In which there is a possibility that the addressee may have moved. Include your return address in the upper left hand corner. Mr. Grove said patrons on rural routes arc asked to keep the approaches to their mail boxes clear and passable as far as possible. Rural Parcel Post The delivery of ordinary parcel post too large to go in the mail box will be effected in the following manner: The rural carrier will attempt to hail the patron who wil corne to the box to get his package Failing this, the carrier will leave form 4233 in the mail box requesting the patron to indicate thereon the day on which he will meet the carrier to receive the parcel. Any patron desiring delivery outside the box of parcels too large to be placed therein may file a written request at the post office directing the delivery of parcels in this manner, with the express proviso thai the Post Office Department anc the carrier are relieved of all responsibility in case of loss or depredation.

The concession was part of a" new U. N. eight-point plan for solving the bitter dispute over policing an armistice. While allied truce negotiators abandoned their demand for unrestricted behind-t he-lines inspections, they insisted that the checks be made by joint Allied- Red teams. The Reds reacted immediately-and unfavorably--to the allied proposal, said a U. N. spokesman, LL Col. Howard Levie. The Communist want all inspections made by representatives of neutral nations. The U. N. command has not formally rejected this idea. Lcvie said the Communist dele- Kates repeated their old argument that the use of joint inspection teams would interfere with the internal affairs of the North Korean people. Levie emphasized, however, that Allied negotiators did not regard the Red reaction as a rejection of the eight-point program. He said the Communists probably will have more to say when the delegates meet again in Panmunjom at 11 a. m. Friday (9 p. rn. est Thursday). 107 Air Attacks SEOUL, Korea, Dec. 6 f/P)--Al- lied airmen made 107 attacks on front line Communists field guns today in an all-out campaign to make Korea's twilight war even quieter.

The Air Force said no allied planes were hit. Pilots who hit Red artillery snid they destroyed 35 guns on ,the western front. Many other* were damaged. Red guns have been harassing U. N. infantry since the twilight war began Nov. 28.

The joint two-party unit unanimously commend the defense, planners for having "accomplished the unprecedented feat of striking a happy medium between military preparedness and a healthy national economy in a colossal war of nerves." The committee declared it "refuses to be alarmed at the unconfirmed reports of failures to maintain a minimum of national safety." A committee aide said that was an allusion to findings by the Senate Armed Service Preparedness subcommittee, which said in a report last week: "Deliveries on defense hard goods--planes, tanks, ships and guns--have fallen dangerously behind schedule, x x x We are not achieving as rapidly as possible the minimum necessary force essential for the security of the United States." elude singing, dancing and play ing the violin and piano.
