Around Sondrio, a littl town on the Italian-Swiss horde which normally gets the first snow fall of the Italian winter, violets and daisies bloomed in the fields amid springlike weather whll nearby roads and mountain passe were blocked by snowdrifts. Along Germany's Baltic Coas the worst floods for almost a cen tury quietened. Damage may h! the million dollar mark. The howling northeast blizzard which churned seas over the low coastland unprotected by dikes gave way today to a gentle breeze from the south. Flood alarm warn Ings were lifted. In Italy, the country worst hi by sudden snowstorms, mountain •villages were isolated and many rail lines blocked by dirfts as deep as 13 feet in some places. From the Alpine borders Switzerland and Austria down the spine of the Italian peninsula, road •nd rail traffic was-snarled. At Trieste, the violent north wind blew 10 freight cars into the tea. The Danes and Swedes buffeted by floods and blizzards estimated damage at a million dollars. Meteorologists predicted that another raging snowstorm might sweep ov- •r northern and central Sweden by nightfall.

"We'll have to work fast," he added without elaboration. The Evening Star quoted Virginia police as calling some of the suspects "gun-toting men" and as saying lives might be endangered in their roundup. The newspaper described the money cache as a metal box about 2 feet long, 10 inches high and 8 inches wide. The missing money 8,000 crisp, new ready-to-spend $20 bills. Somehow, someone sneaked it out of the bureau during the New Year's holiday period, leaving two packages stuffed with plain white paper where the money was supposed to be in a vault. It's possible some of the missing money may seep into circulation'. Here's how you can tell if one of the bills comes your way: Each of them is a $20 Federal Reserve Banx of New York note. It bears a picture or Andrew Jackson. It belongs to the series 150-A, and the serial number falls into one of these groups: • B90236001A to B90240000A B90252001A. to B90256000A Chief U. E.

Yesterday morning when the plant reopened after the New Year's weekend two money packages in the vault turned out to be suspiciously light in weight. RITZ THEATRE Manila, Ark.

A« distributed by the White Hou»«, th« President'! text had him giving assurance that "every legitimate means available to the federal government that can be used to sustain . . . prosperity (or thli purpos*— will be used— If nee e&sary." Later, the text was revised and the President changed the wording slightly again in delivering it to say that every such means "is being used and will continue to be used as necessary." The President expressed confi dence that the program he will request of the session of Congress which opens tomorrow will meet with the approval of the people. He said he hoped it would enlist support In both parties because of "its purpose of promoting the welfare of the people." Observing that no group of Amer leans can prosper unless all Americans prosper, he cautioned against division into factions and hostile groups. "We believe that the slum, the out-dated highway, the poor school system— the deficiencies in health protection, the loss of a Job and the fear of poverty in old age- in fact any real Injustice in the business of living— penalizes all of us," he declared. Reaction Favorable "And this administration is committed to help you prevent them." Reaction in Congress to his speech was generally favorable, but Sen Holland (D-Fla) commented that Eisenhower "sounds like he Is committing himself to the welfare state." "I hope his specific messages to Congress prove that is not true," Holland added. However, Sen. Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas, the Democratic leader, said it was "very good to know that the administration has adopted what has always been a Democratic policy— the belief that our people need not suffer from a 'boom and bust America.' " Rep. McCormack (D-Mass) said Eisenhower "apparently is fearful of a business recession, and he added: "Unfortunately, a recession is under way due to deliberate Republican policies. We Democrats warned, but the -big banker control of this administration failed to heed." Chairman Bridges (R-NH) of the Senate Appropriations Committee said he thinks the President will promote peace and prosperity."

Bromley Oxnam charges the reputations of individuals are being blasted by the Incompetences of congressional investigating committees. The Washington clergyman, president of the World Council of Churches, severely criticized the operation of the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities, before which he appeared as a witness last June. In a speech before a YMHA- YWHA group last night, Bishop Oxnam charged the committee has secret file on more than one million American citizens. Such an operation, he said, is one of the first methods of a police state. files contain d«ta collected and compiled by a lot of people, many of whom he Mid are Incompetent. He said the committee doee not vouch for the accuracy of the numerouf release* it lend* out to newspapers, schoola and organizations, while many are inaccurate and ruin the reputation of persona and damage their ability to earn a living. In an earlier Interview, Bishop Oxnam said Americana who believe all international problems would vanish overnight if Russia were wiped off the face of the earth are deluded. It would still be a aeethlng, {revolutionary world," he said. In whit* nnMtudM n» hungry *M many do not have the beneJK of basic freedoms. He appeared voluntarily before the House Un-American AcUvitiM Committee last year to answer a charge b Rep. Jackson (R-CaUf) that he "icrved God on Sunday and the Communist front the balance of the week." By unanimoua vote, tfce committee later adopted « motion saying its recorda "*how that this committee has no record of any Communist party membership or affiliation by Bishop OK- nam." But committee member! split sharply over whether they had thus "cleared" the bishop of any Communist affiliations. POWs (Continued from Page 1) against the Indian command. Check Boater The Indians said the head count was made to check its prisoner rosters. And the U. N. Command gave the count its full blessing, saying it is entirely in accordance with the U. N. principle of free choice for prisoners if any of them ask repatriation as a byproduct. Observers here said the Reds appear to feel that any de facto screening, even though some prisoners ask to return, undercuts their contention that POW interviews which ended Dec. 23 should be extended. The Reds also con- end that all prisoners should be kept in neutral custody until a mace conference decides their :ate, There was no official reaction rom the Indian command to Pyun's statement but some officers said privately, "It is just talk. And I suppose Pyun is looking for sensational headline." mlttee predicted that a majority if Democrats will "support a large portion of the program." On that score, Sen. Sparkman if Aalbama, the 1952 Democratic 'ice presidential • nominee, said hat he believes his party, members will back any "reasonable" irogram the President suggests. "We certainly will help him ex- iand social security coverage, Bup- wrt any move to build up more igorous foreign trade and join lim in any economies that can IB effected without impairing our ecurity," Sparkman said, "The Democrats would welcome farm program that Would work," e added. Sfofe Farm Prices Show 1 Per Cent Fall LITTLE ROCK (IP)— The ttdex of prices paid for Arkansas farm products fell three. points, or 1.1 per cent, from Nov. 15 to Dec. 15. The Crop Reporting Service said today that cotton, with a five per cent drop, led the decline.

We will be eminently as well prepared there, if trouble breaks out, as we are now with the extra manpower," Smith said in an interview, adding that the decision represents "no fundamental change" in this country's basic position. Adm. Arthur W.
