In a final White House session, ending Tuesday night, Churchill and Mr. Truman agreed to give all-out support to formation of a unified European defense ar-ny, including German, French, Italian and Low Country troops. Mr. Tru- man had wanted such a cosunit- ment from the British leader in the hope of speeding up the army project in Europe. A communique sum- ming up results of the four days of talks, but omitting information on secret military discussions, is expected to be issued this after- noon (about 3 p. m. EST) following Churchill's 2 p. m. departure by train. The communique, informants re- ported, will announce several spe- cific points, including an agree- ment on raw materials supplies. This is expected to assure Britain of more American steel and the United States of British tin.

Churchill is understood to have expressed to the President a desire for greater exchange of atomic in- formation among the United States, Britain and Canada and for ar- rangements to test Britain's atomic weapons here. This information ex- change would require action by Congress to relax present rigid atomic secret restrictions. The two leaders had no meeting scheduled today. Instead it was announced that Churchill would at- tend the joint session of Congress to hear Mr. Truman's State of the Union message.

'That has been the major disagreement throughout" The Communist counter-proposal formally accepted Allied demands for troop rotation, replenishment of supplies, and supervision -of the truce by neutrals. Chinese Maj. Gen. Hsieh Fang called these "great concessions." Turner retorted: -'You have not made one single effort to solve the major difference confronting us." No progress was made in a sub- committee meeting on exchange of prisoners. Both subcommittees meet Thursday at Panmunjom. Vice Adm. C.

Korea Korean troops killed an estimated Chinese near the Panmunjom truce talks site Tuesday in the war's heaviest fighting in six weeks, the U. S. Eighth Army reported today. But the South Koreans had to give up two small hnis west of Korangpo when the Reds hurled about troops into the Battle of Sasi Bulge. The vicious battle has raged since Dec. 28. The Allied troops were identified Wednesday as in- fantrymen of the Republic of Ko- rea (ROK) First Division. An Eighth Army briefing officer said since the fight for the out- post began, Communists have been 852 wounded and 10 captured. He said Allied losses were "much but gave no figures. The Eighth Army communique made no mention of fighting in the sector Wednesday. But a new scrap broke out dur- ing the early morning darkness near Heartbreak Ridge on the eastern front. An attacking Red platoon pushed a United Nations unit out of an advance position, but the Allies recaptured it in a counter-attack. Fighter-bombers destroyed or damaged 10 locomotives and about 150 rail cars during the night, Far East Air Forces said. Night flying pilots reported a de- crease in Hed truck traffic. About 320 were attacked, and 25 were reported destroyed. Eight B-29 Superforts battered the rail yards at Kum, key link in the supply route leading from Manchuria to the front Allied naval forces on the north- east coast pounded Red troop posi- tions near Kosong. Carrier-based planes from the Essex and Valley Forge cut rail lines in 10S places. Pilots said they killed 161 Commu- nist soldiers. made ready to get another rig aboard. Then, shortly before 3 p. m.. they barely saved themselves from going overboard. The U. S. destroyer W'Ulard Keith, standing reported: "Carlsen and Dancy narrowly escaped being swept sea while at bow of Enterprise attempting re- rig. "Unable to pass tow this weather which believe typical of this area therefore outlook not favorable im mediate future." Veteran tugmen at the scene gave the Enterprise only a 50-50 chance of reaching dock as dusk descended. The swells crashing against the crippled freighter forced a halt in all attempts to get a new line aboard. Carlsen and Dancy, cling- ing like monkeys to the" almost vertical deck, had hacksawec away the remnants of the towline that broke early today. The Enterprise was drifting northeast at slightly more than half a mile an hour. Its early list of 60 degrees had increased to 70 degrees, indicating that its main cargo of pig iron had shifted more early today. The freighter was riding visibly lower in the water than Tuesday, but the exact amount of sinking was hard to reckon. The Flying Enterprise, en route from Hamburg to New York, ran into. a Christmas hurricane and suffered a deck crack Dec. 27. The passengers and crew aban- doned ship Dec. 28, but Carlsen insisted on staying aboard. Last Saturday the TurmoU, out of Falmouth, England, after get- ting Dancy aboard the Enterprise, started towing the freighter toward Falmouth. The two proceeded per- ilously at times, but well for the most part, until the new ocean swells, 20 to 25 feet high, began beating in Tuesday night and to- day. Except for an occasional rain squall, weather_at ,the scene was clear and visibility unlimited. The Enterprise was about 30 miles from Lizard Head. Blood For Korea Program Opens Wounded soldiers in Korea -were 31 pints of blood nearer survival Wednesday morning as a result Delivers State of the Union Message of Unusual Gravity WASHINGTON (AP) President Truman appeal- ed to Congress today to avoid "political fights" which could damage the country's world position in this presidential election year a time when all men walk "m the shadow of World War." In a State of the Union message, the Presi- dent sketched broadly what he wants from this congres- sional session. It boiled down largely to a continuation of his foreign policy programs and a renewed plea for the domestic legislation he calls his Fair Deal. Here Are The Main Points Made by Truman In Message WASHINGTON capsule form, here are main points made by President Truman in his State of the Union message to Congress: With Russia increasing its armed might and influence, the threat of a third World War ic still very real. The United States and other free nations, working shoulder to shoulder, have made progress to- ward at any price, but based on freedom and justice. The road ahead is hard and steep. The nation's economy is good and getting better. But inflation still imperils, taxes must remain high and controls must be held tight. A buildup of military forces and. supplies, with emphasis on air pow- er, will curb civilian production for at least two years. Some of the domestic program will be given up this year and some will be slowed, but the ''ur- gently needed" will be pressed. Wrongdoers in government will weeded out and punished. But Ihe honest and hard-working ma- jority must be protected. Politics, in a presidential elec- tion year, must be conducted so that the national interest w not endangered. the 8t Korea' Lucie drive. county "Blood for Murder Trial Is Continued "11 "was reported by officials at club around 11.30 nesday -morning that 41 persons had registered as donors and 31 pints had been donated, ten per- sons having been turned down for various reasons. The blood was to be flown by a U. S. Army airplane to Miami from the St Lucie airport at Wednesday afternoon. From there it will be processed into plasma and flown directly to Korea. The hours at the Elks club do- fating center Wednesday are up to 6 p. m. and from 7 p. m. until In Circuit Court Wednesday morning the case of Otto Preston, charged with murder in the first degree, was continued until Jan. 25. Scheduled for trial starting at Thursday morning is the case of James Pee alias James May- Beld, charged with murder in the first degree in connection with the slaying of Robert Franklin last November 15. At the time, the slaying was said to have taken place over an ar- gument about some fried fish. Thursday the hours are from 9 a m. until 5 p. m. Five hundred pints is the quota set up for St Lucie county to fill in the nation-wide appeal that is plasma shortage the result of overseas.

This wfll make four lines for the market and will permit location on sidings of the two new packing plants-that-are to be bunt the market grounds at once.

As to tax rates, be said that would be dealt with m later sages. To political friends and alike, Mr. Truman admonished: have a .great responsibility to conduct our political fights m a manner that does not barm tte national interest "We can find plenty of things to differ about without destroying our free institutions and without abandoning our bipartisan foreign policy for peace." Mr. Truman's message was. de- livered in person to a joint session of the Senate and House in the House chamber of the Capitol. In his immediate audience, in addition to the legislators, were Prime Minister Winston Churchill of Britain and diplomats of many nations. Radio and television networks carried his words to all corners of the United States. And the State Department's Voice of America broadcasts lifted them around the world. Churchill sat in the presidential gallery. He receixed a standing ovation from the Congress mem- bers when he entered the gallery about 15 minutes before Mr. Tru- S man began his speech. He bowed in recognition and leaned forward to shake hands v.-'ith Mrs. Truman, who was in the same row. At no point in his references to politics or otherwise, did the President give any direct hint whether be intends to run for re- election. He did speak of 1952 as a "cru- cial year' in the defense effort, and sid ''our best efforts'' must be put forth both this year and next to take the country "over the hump." Running through his message were repeted references to the present as a "perilous and to the 'terrible threat of aggres- sion'' from the Communists Mr. Truman spoke confident- ly of winning through to world peace. "The only thing that can defeat i it our own state of be said at one point "We can lose if we falter." The first reaction of fe lators was, M usual, mixed and a reflection in part of their own po- litical leanings. Rep.
