New Yorker's New Year's: $100 or By JAMES DEVLIN NEW YORK (ft — Taking your best girl out for New Year's Eve will require the major part of a $100 bill at some of New York's swankier night spots Or, if you prefer, you can visit the bar around the corner and buy • a 10 cent beer to watch the revelry on television. ' The minimum tab at the Hotel Pierre's Cotillion Room will be .$21.50 per person. For that you will get dinner, a show, noisemakers, dancing and a champagne cocktail. To the $55 for two, add the price of all other drinks, tips, transportation, a snack on the way home and maybe a headache remedy. The Pierre's price includes the 20 per cent luxury tax. At most other places, the quoted price does not include the tax, which must be added. /.THE HOTEL Plaza's basic charge will be $25 per person in Us Persian Room for dancing, dinner, ^fovors and a show. But you can go !jg> its Rendezvous Boom for $22.50 -each. At the Waldorf-Astoria, the price will be $25 in the Empire Room. $?5 in the Peacock Alley cafes, and $7.50 in ndjoining cafes. The Hotel New Yorker will provide its ice show, supper, funny hats, noisemakers and dancing for $13.50, including tax. Night clubs generally will have minimum charges, which usually can be used up either in food or drink. The minimum is not to he confused with a cover charge, roughly equivalent to the price of admis- • sion, which some places will apply In addition to a minimum. • The Viennese Lantern, for instance, will have a $10 mirnnum plus a $2 cover charge. * • • TEN DOLLAR minimums will be in force at the Embers, the Bon Soir, the Tavern - on - the - Green and numerous other places. The Hickory House will have an $8 minimum, the Village Vanguard ' $7.50 Eddie Condon's $5 and Nick's Jazz Spot in 1 Greenwich Village, **. Some places will have "open meaning that regular 'prices will prevail without covers or minimums. The Edison Hotel In the heart of New York's Gay White Way. is refusing to rent any, rooms or suites for New Year's parties. Irwin H. Kramer, the owner, says such parties would disturb I ,akjiouse," I "prices w "For this young and vigorous nation of ours, nothing is really impossible." the staunch former defense secretary declared in his inaugural address. After solemnly taking the oath of office, Magsaysay outlined a seven-point program aimed raising living conditions, strengthening Internal security, and wiping out the Communist-directed Huk rebel movement. He called for strong ties with the United States and declared that relations with friendly Asian nations must be tightened to m common problems. "But," he warned, "to the leaders of the .Communist conspiracy who would deliver this country anc its people to a foreign power, this I say: "I shall use all the forces at my command to the end that the E ereign authority of the government shall be respected and maintained There can be no compromise with disloyalty." The new President, who rode his fame as Huk-busting defense secretary into the highest office in the land, urged Communist rebels "who have been misled by the lies of the Kremlin" to surrender. Magsaysay broke with the administration of President Elpidio Quirino in a dispute over the resettlement of rebels who gave themselves up. Outlines Alms As standard bearer of the opposition Nacionalista .party, he won a smashing victory over Quirino in November's election for a four- year term. Magsaysay. who spoke in picturesque Luneta Square overlooking Manila Bay, outlined these seven aims of his administration: 1. "Positive, energetic measures .0 improve the living conditions of our fellow citizens in the barrios (villages) and neglected rural areas and of laborers in our urban and industrial centers." 2. Purge the nation's land tenure system of "injustice and oppression." 3. Channel the benefits of economic and industrial development programs to the common people ,o raise their standards of living. 4. Spend United States aid funds 'honestly and to the best advantage." 5. Cooperate with the United Na- jons "in seeking collective security and a just world peace." 6. Cooperate with Asian nations in meeting common problems. .7. Strengthen and safeguard in- ;ernal security and "live up to all our obligations under the mutual defense treaty with the United States." the sleep of traveling salesmen who I Kramer. have to be up and on the job the next day.

Wilson Fire DependsonWind Another Blaze > Break* Out in Mt. Baldy Regions LOB ANGELES I*—Crews fighting to check two forest fire* In the 8*n Gabriel Mountains, one menacing Mt. Wilson Observatory, were reinforced to meet • predicted fresh windstorm today. Forecasters said the fate of the observatory, valuable television equipment and homes In the fire area depended upon the caprice of the wind, if it develops. Another fire 20 miles to the east, in the Mt. Baldy region, broke out of control last night and swept another 1,000 acres to taring the flame-blackened area there to 4,000 acres. Fire lines were able to keep the flames from the summit of Mt. Wilson yesterday, largely because the wind abated almost entirely but there .were times when the blaze crept to within 200 yards of the observatory grounds. The U.S. Forest Service announced last night that 12,000 acres had bsDii blackened in the Mt. Wilson-Monrovia Peak fire. On the 14 miles of uncontrolled fire front are 800 men, and 13 bulldozers, 64 pumpers and one helicopter.

WASHINGTON (fa — A serious slump in demand for such durable Items as autos, appliances and machinery will come in a few years "whether or .not we have one in 1954," the American Economic Assn. was told today. Albert Gailord Hart. Columbia University economist and former Treasury consultant, made the prediction and said the goverri- ment should, move to hold any recession within moderate bounds. "What should worry us is not the possibility of a recession which is normal — but the fact we have so little In reserve to deal with one," Hart said. Dr. William J. Fellner of Yale University told the economists' annual meeting that measures developed to cope with depressions will lead to a smoother patter of up-and-down economic cycles than the country experienced before World War H. Dr. Fellner Raid irtf'.ationary greater political influence of persons belonging in the relatively low income groups" and by the ability of "relatively overproducing" industries to obtain government subsidies. He cautioned that the government might go too far in warding off deflation and might attempt to prevent "even moderate fluctuations in employment." Hart suggested that the "obvious remedy" for recession is tax- cutting to give people more money to spend. "Means are available to hold a recession within limits the United States can readily stand," he went on, "but the effects abroad of even a mild recession here could be disastrous." Another economist. Prof. C. L. Christenson of Indiana University, told a panel that "U. S. foreign policy, not labor union wage demands, could be a main cause of further inflation in this country. Christenson said the American people might approve considerable responsibilities for this nation abroad but might also balk at paying the tax cost of such a policy. Taylor Tells Troops in Korea Return to U.S. Is Uncertain SEOUL (/PI — Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor stood in a snowcovered Korean valley today and told 8th Army soldiers he did not know what two U. S. divisions would be leaving Korea or where or when they would go. "The decision to transfer two divisions out," he said, "was a high- level move and I do not have the details. It may be weeks or months before the transfer is made." president Eisenhower announced recently that the two divisions would be pulled out. "Don't listen to rumors," Taylor told troops of the U. S. 25th Division's 27th Regiment. "As soon as we get authoritative news from the horse's mouth, we'll let you know." Taylor said he thought that after the divisions to be transferred were known the "fair way to do it would be to send out the men who have been out here about 16 months and transfer the short-tim- ers from the divisions to other divisions that are staying." "But I don't know yet that will be the procedure," he said Adenauer Named 'Man of the Year' NEW YORK W)—Time magazine today chose West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer as its 27th annual Man of the Yenr.
