The forecast by the U. S.

Traces of snow already have been reported from some sections this fall. Continued cold, with minimum temperatures tonight paralleling those of early today, also was predicted.

A drive for what? To elect a new Congress in 1S48 because ihis one passed the Taft-Htu-tlev law. At (.lie same time last October the AFL was holding its convention in Kan Franeitco and took slen it had never tried before. It decided to sol'up a - political arm of the AFL. This was formed last Friday and is called "laror's Educational and Political League." Vosterdav William Green, president of the APT,, pledged the league Ip a "house- cleaning in Congress." He Said that in the 1048 elections the league hopes to "defeat all of those false representatives of the people whose only loyalty is to big business and Nineteen of th railroad worker Brotherhoods, one month great wealth." nation's 21 'iiig unions, called pay. Prices, meanwhile living costs, kept going up and are still going up. Food prices now are the highest in history. Since the vyar the CIO has won two rounds of wage increases. Now it wants a third round to offset i,hf steadily rising living costs. This third round will be cancelled out if business, claiming the wage boosts mean higher business cost, hikes prices .some more to offset Ihe wage hike. Labor won't gain in that deal but tho ones who will suffer most cruelly, the ones who are suffering most now, are the country's non- organized people. What can be done? Congress could set up price controls and, maybe, cut taxes to give people more money. But business wouldn't stand idly by if anything like that happened unless Congress set up wage controls again, too. And labor doesn't want wage controls.

Specific Price Plan Presented by Democrats Washington, Dec. 12 — (#•)— Specific proposals for price ceilings and roll backs under President Truman's request for standby anti- hflation powers were submitted to -ongress today by Secretary of Labor Schwellenbach. Replying to Republican demands that the administration spell out its anti-inflation program, Schwellenbach said price controls would be limited to commodities: 1. That basically affect the cost of -living and which are essential items. 2. That are basic to the costs of agricultural and industrial production. 3. "Essential to effectuation oi the foreign policy of the United States. Moreover, Schwellenbach said a maximum price should be set only when: 1. The commodity is found to be in short supply; 2. Or the price oi such commodity has risen unrea sonably above the price prevailing in June 1947. Maximum prices lower than the highest price prevailing between June 11-and June 18. 1947, may be established under Schwellenbach's proposals to make allowances 1 for decreased costs or market declines. Schwellenbach sent the price control provisions to Chairman Wolcott (R-Mich) of the House Banking Committee, with a note saying he will submit in a day or two specific language for such wage controls regarded as necessary to accompany price ceilings. j Schwellenbach described his outline as his "personal recommenda- Probe Opens to Determine Cause of Blast Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Dec. 12 — — State and federal mine officials today began probing 1,000 feet underground to determine the cause of a blast that killed five nen and injured two others at the jehigh Coal Company's colliery :hree miles from Wilkes-Barre. More than 200 men were working in various sections of the anthracite mine when the blast occurred yesterday, including eight or 10 in the blast chamber. The coal company identified ;hose killed as Stephen Sillup, 47; Frank Chudlio, 55; Ignatz Shzy- necki, 57; Roger Jones, 41, and ' asper Pulak, 24. Those injured were Edmund Rojeski, 42, and John Gasper, 25. The U.

At the White House later after a cabinet meeting, he said wage and price controls "are tied together" and it will be "extremely difficult to do anything on wages unless action is taken on the control of prices."

America is in a state of undeclared emergency, said Maj. Gen. Manton Eddy, the Army's information chief. On the one hand, our people's minds are being poisoned against our own institutions and governments, he declared. On the other, there is a threat of future armed conflict. Such jittery talk makes us wonder if we shouldn't all try to relax. Not relax our vigilance, our intelligent efforts to strengthen our country, our attempt to meet our real problems realistically. But declare a moratorium on the present practice of seeing burglars under every bed. After all, we're a big, strong country. Maybe we're not as strong as we ought to be. But we still haven't had a good share of our best farm land turned into a battlefield. We haven't had any industrial cities leveled by bombs. We aren't plagued by a dangerously low living standard. We don't have a dictatorship so unsure of its "perfection" that it has to advertise it constantly. In short, we aren't Russia. This is not discounting the man- sized job cut put for the American people and their government. There is a real crisis in Europe which is up to us to solve. There is a small but potentially dangerous Communist menace here at home. There is the grave problem of keep ing the United Nations alive and working in spite of Soviet obstruction. But hysteria won't help us do the job, and hysteria seems to be the state that our national thinking is approaching. That state is particularly apparent in our Congress. Its members squander their time chasing small red butterflies, to the neglect of bigger game. Our armed forces are below their designation peacetime strength. Nothing has been done about universal military training, though the President and the Chief of Staff have urged it, and all polls show the public strongly in favor of it. Our congressmen are too busy gunning for Red script-writers on the Hollywood lots, or drafting bills to repel Hungarian immigrants from our shores. AH this doesn't add up to a firm attittude toward Russia. Firmness implies strength and self-control. We are beginning to advocate some rather dictatorial means of safeguarding our democracy. Let us remember that the Russian government, with all its problems, must be scared— scared of our strength and of a cooling world opinion, and worried about the failure of its big push in France and Italy to come off. That fear is very likely at the root of the ranting attacks on American policy. So let's not try to trade insult for insult with the Russians. Let's slop wringing our hands one rnin- ue and blustering the next. It isn't necessary. We've got the world's Tride of Texas Navy' British Won't Enforce Partition Plan Londpn, Dec. 12 — (UP)— Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin said,today that' British troops will not help enforce the partition of Palestine, even if the United Nations Security Council so orders. The statement touched off fresh' speculation that U. N. eventually might have to ask the United States and Russia to send troops to Palestine to end Arab-Jewish fighting. "It is for the security council to lay down down which states will find the forces, but they can not use British organized forces," Bev in told Commons. "Neither can I be party at the present moment, when the security force as a whole is not organized under U. N., to putting British forces under other commands." Bevin, in the second day of Commons debate on the Palestine situation, said Britain would give ui control of Palestine even before May 15 if possible, and rush the withdrawal of the 70,000 British soldiers now in the Holy Land. Great Britain previously had announced it would not play a "major role" in the enforcement, but Bevin went further today, asserting that "we feel we have done our best — the problem of enforcement must be left to others." 12 Arabs Die in Jewish Attack; Toll Now 185 Jerusalem, Dec. 12 — (#")— Jewis! commandoes attacked the villag of Tireh near Haifa today with gre lades and automatic weapons, kill ng 12 Arabs and wounding six This brought to 185 the Holy Lane death toll since partition was voted The best available, informatio was that the Jewish groups wer squads of the Irgun Zvai Leum and Stern group. They went int action from Haifa to Hebron. Some authorities expressed belie. :hat Jewish bands appeared to be opening a widespread offensive against Arab masses opposing a division of the country into Jewish and Arab states. Counting earlier communal casualties in Aden and Syria, the Middle East death toll.in 13 days had mounted to 301. Hundreds were wounded. Property damage in Palestine was estimated at above $10,000,000. British troops in steel helmets and police armed with automatic weapons moved into the Jerusalem old city during the .morning where thousands -of Arabs gathered at mosques near the walled Jewish quarters. • A police recapitulation showed* 108 caisualties in combats during the 24 hours ended at 8 a. m. today. The official tally showed 25 Arabs and 12 Jews killed. Wounded were 49 Arabs, 18 Jews, one Briton, one Mauritian and two auxiliary police. In a bomb attack on an Arab bus company at Rarrile, 22 vehicles were reported demolished. In the Jewish attack on Tireh, a house was demolished and a-dozen others were damaged and set afire. Lost U.

Later, in laying his 10-point nti-inflation program before Con- ,ress, the president asked legisla- ion to regulate speculative trading n the exchanges. Pauley testified he held "some- hing less than a million dollars" worth of commodities when he took he army post.

One well informed source sail the secuuty forces in the capita and province had been augmen ed by 12,000 to 15,000 men, mclu ng special riot police from Naples.

Dispatches from Milan said that the stock exchange in that city was invaded again today by demonstrators, compelling it to suspend its session. In contrast to yesterday's almost complete paralysis of normal commercial activity, some cafes, bars and small shops opened for business. The Christian-Democrat section of the Chamber of Labor, which, opposed the strike but was voted down by the Communist-Socialist majority, continued to scatter leaflets today urging workers to stay numbers ol 20 objects that had been listed previously by members of the club.
