The missing man was identified as Berry Garden, of Fernandina. The two s'urvivors are the master, Otis Ryles, of Fernandina. and Henry Norman, Brunswick. Ga. The boat's home port is listed as Fernandina. According to the report by the Coast Guard, the Mat was about three miles south of Fort Pierce -and, a mile offshore, when around a. m. the blast ignited the engine room. Coast Guardsmen saw the explo- sion and boats were dispatched immediately. In the meantime, Harry Gray, of Fort Pierce, had picked up the two survivors in bis fishing skiff.

The Communists handed the Al- Jies a. written message declaring the Red Cross delegates were not welcome and added: "We hope that no similar inci- dents will recur in the future.'' The Communists said they con- sider it "unnecessary to receive representatives of the Red Cross.'' Both subcommittees working on armistice terms spent the day wrangling'over issues which have deadlocked the talks for weeks. An Allied briefing officer said CHUKHIlim ADDRESS TO U S CONGRESS Pledges Britain Will Do Her Part In De- fense Of Europe WASHINGTON Minis- ter Churchill pledged to Congress today that Britain will do her part in defending Europe, and will join in a "resolute and effective" re- sponse should new Communist ag- gression break out in the Far East. In a momentous address to a joint Senate-House session, the British leader declared: "We take oar stand at your side." Churchill, speaking slowly from notes, told Congress the British are ''very glad" that you do' no! allow the Chinese anti-Communists; on Formosa to be invaded." And he predicted that in time China would throw off Commu- nism. By implication at least, these remarks moved British -policy in the Far East closer to that of the United States. Britain has recognized nirt China while this country still recognizes the Nationalist govern- ment of Chiang Kai-shek. In other highlights, Churchill: 1. Said he believes that "by ac- cumulating deterrents of all kinds against aggression." the free na- tions and the world will be able i to. avoid another World War. 2. Admonished that the United States should not agree to outlaw- ing atomic bombs under present world conditions. "Be careful, above all things, not to let go of the atomic weapon until you are sure and more than sure that the means of preserving peace are in your he said. Just before his caution about the A-bomb, Churchill had.said the most "effective deterrent against a Third World War" was the "val- iant resolution" of a well armed international force, "rather than the awful secret which has been wrested from "Supreme determination'" against another war would be the most effective guaranty of victory, he said." Churchill, in black suit and a dotted bow tie. delivered his address from what appeared to be notes. No advance text was given to news reporters. Aimed perhaps as much to the American people' as to the legis- lators, the address was carried by all major U. S. television and ra- dio networks. His words alto were relayed to Britain .and to Commonwealth countries for rebroadcasts.

Empty Luxury Train Is Still Stuck In Snow New Storm Front Toward Northern California j SAN FRANCISCO Us Tired refugee passengers from the snow- blanketed streamliner, City of San Francisco, arrived four days late. They were noticeably weary and sober-faced. But most looked as if they'd just completed a normal 40-hour run from Chicago in- stead of having survived three and a half cold, stormbound days in mile-high Conner Pass. The deeply snow-packed High Sierra reluctantly had given up the 222 passengers and. 32 Southern Pacific crewmen late Wednesday. The empty luxury train still is stuck there.
