But Mr. Truman dropped, far the present, his goal of a pay-as- w-t 90 mobilcation. And in seeking new revenue, which many con- gressional tax leaders say they will nut vote, fht President did net specify whether the burden should added to business, or all three. OF POW RULES Have Failed To Mark Locations Of Camps, Allow Inspections MUNSAN, Korea Hi The Unit- ed Nations Command charged to- day that Communists in Korea "violate every prevision" of the Geneva Convention protecting pris- oner of war camps freas the haz- ards of war. i The charge came from head- quarters in Tokyo in comment OB i a Bed report that U. If; planes bombed a POW camp at Kangdong Monday night. The statement said I the question would be raised with J i the Communists ''at the earliest opportunity." j There was no hint it was brought' up during today's truce talks at Panmunjom -Negotiators still are deadlocked on how to exchange; prisoners and what will be done5 with Red airfields during an armi- stice. The Communists denied two In- ternational Red Cross representa- tives permission to enter North Korea. Dr. Otto Lehner, chief Far East delegate of the International Committee of the Bed Cross, had flown to Panmunjom with Albert de Cocatrix seeking permission. North Korean Maj. Gen. Lee Sang Cho, Communist delegate on the prisoner subcommittee, ignored the two Swiss. A minor officer gave them the same reply the Reds have made to previous re- quests to let Red Cross representa- tives visit POW camps: "No." Two Texas Cities Lay Claim To Warmest Playground Title His annual economic message to Congress forecast the "most dif- ficult" year of the armament buildup, large federal deficits, some civilian shortages but few- hardships, and a "'precarious'" price problem Mr. Truman fixed two major goals for this '-year of First, a 5 per cent rise in national output, second, one and a third million more men and women at work. His want-list of legislation was man to emphasize the elimination of so-called loopholes and "inequi- ties" by which the President says some well-to-do groups have es- caped then: full share of the tax burden. The loophole-stoppers he has mentioned would, in fact, provide two to three billion dollars in rev- enue, amounting to half or more of the new request. They are ex- pected to get a better hearing than requests for higher income, busi- ness or exdse rates. But Mr. Truman, telling Con The Reds revised the casualtv would be contained in the first of long. It began with a two-year ex- gress he expects an_ eight billion nf tlm tension of the Defense Production Act; "the" repeal of "weakening'" price control amendments; im- proved' farm price supports, stronger curbs on consumer and bank credit; and so on to a total of a dozen laws.

N. troops killed, 15 seriously injured and 40 slightly hurt. The original report was more than 10 killed and 60 injured. The Reds have said they held South Koreans and one American at Kangdong. The II. N. Command in Tokyo said Allied military aircraft were in the Kangdong area at the time of the reported bombing. But, the report said, the Allies can't tell whether the camp was bit because they don't know where it is. The statement said: 1.

U. S. Delegate Ernest A. Gross made this announcement in a speech urging the U. N. Political Committee to send new Russian atomic proposals to the Disarma- ment Commission. He did not specify what the new U. S. pro- posals would be. A spokesman said the proposals a series of papers on atomic con- trol and conventional arms which the U. S will present to the com- mission. The new group must start its work before Feb. 10, probably in New York. In his speech, Gross also called on Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky to keep hands off climate could melt a ton of roughly. A factor of confusion in the bust-: ness, whooped up by the several; Chambers of Commerce, was that the contest rules were never dear- ly specified. Some cities used more ice, others less.

"They had the girls sitting on top of the he said. '-We only had our beauties leaning against it." The whole thing started Tuesday in Carlsbad, which claimed the highest ice-melting rate. A chal- lenge was issued to the other cities with the suggestion the winner side of Premier Mohammed Mossadegh to ask the withdraw- al of the order for closing of nine British consulates. Sir Fran- cis was met with a firm refusal. Mossadegh told him that the order closing consulates on Jan. 21, would stand as long as he is premier.

Fifth Afc Force said the first fight involved 36 Sabres and 80 MIGs. Later, 22 F-86s bat- tled the same flight of Communist planes. One MIG was damaged in each battle. Infantrymen huddled jn their fox- holes as subfreezing weather cov- ered the 145-mfle battle front. Ac- tion was confined to a few small raiding operations by the Allies and probes by the Reds. The two air battles over Sinanju marked the second consecutive day of jet combat after a three-day lapse because of bad weather. The Sabres damaged four MIGs Tuesday. The Tuesday claims upped from two to four when gun camera films showed that Lt. Lloyd P. Juhlin of Highland Park. Mich., and Lt. Lyle Peterson of Chicago, each damaged a MIG. Any Allied losses or damage will be reported only in a week-end summary. Capt. William A. Todd of San Gabriel, Calif., damaged one MIG in Wednesday's first baffle.

He revealed that the schools have their own transportation sys- tem and own 17 school buses and contracts for one. On the 17 school bus routes in the county, buses travel between 900 and miles a day transporting pupils. About the current school bufld- ing program, Huskey told of the construction already done and ex- plained the building program for the coming year. "To delay construction of the new White and Negro high schools longer would, in our opinion, only result in higher costs both for in- terest and he said.

The passengers have been snow- bound since Sunday aboard the Southern Pacific'sT luxurious City of San Francisco. They're in Don- ner Pass, altitude feet. Here's the complicated situation: A rescue train still has IVi miles to go to reach a highway where it will pick up the passengers. A highway crew still must open 154 miles of No. 20 to reach its nearest half the stranded train. The SP spokesman quoted Dr. Lawrence Nelson of Truckee, Calif, who reached the train by dogsled as reporting all passengers were able to walk to the highway. He said those made re- ported at 2? to gas fumes two days ago, had recovered. The relief train, a Pullman-dub car combination, has five or six doctors and several nurses, the SP said. Meanwhile, another train started again at daybreak from Norden, 15 miles uphill from the stream- liner. It turned back Tuesday night because of mechanical trou- ble. This train carries medical sup- plies, dogs and dog sleds. As rescuers worked through the night the marooned passengers huddled in the 20 degree chill of the Sierra Nevada win- ter. They were wrapped in blankets. Fuel oil for heat ran out Monday noon. Art Hoppe, Francisco Chronicle reporter, said morale is high but '-They are a sad looking bunch, and very cold."

How many others may have been killed, injured or missing in ava- lanches and on deep-drifted moun- tain roads could not be deter- mined. Neither could damage be esti- mated, except as multi-million dol- lars. The Weather Bureau said the storm which began last week ob- stinately refuses to move. And still another storm is brewing off the Alaskan Coast. A torrential rain fell upon South- ern California today. Two were drowned in floods, hundreds were evacuated from their homes, bridg- es were washed out, automobiles were stalled, and earthslides blocked highways at many points. Rain-swollen creeks spflled over their banks and forced evacuation of families in such widely separat- ed California areas as East Santa Barbara; the West del Paso sub- urb of Sacramento; Alviso and San Tomas in Santa Clara County, South San Francisco and the north- ern section of Merced in Central California.
