Mlynczak has been in the cus- tody of police since Friday when he was arrested on a charge of furnishing intoxicating liquor to a minor girl. When he was arraigned in court on that count Saturday, Mlynczak requested a preliminary examina- tion on the count and the hearing had been set for Wednesday.

The plan was embodied fa two resolutions worked out in a series of closed-door conferences and cir- culated just before the political committee of the general assembly met this morning. The resolutions were transmitted to the State department immedi- ately by the U. S. delegation. A spokesman said the delegation would not comment until it had re- ceived a high-level reaction from Washington. One of the proposals would create a three-man commission, headed by Assembly President Nasrollah Entezam of Iran, to "determine the basis on which a satisfactory r-ease-fire in Korea can be arranged." The other two mem- bers would be named by Entezam. Informed quarters said this for- mula was adopted to meet U. S. objections to an outright cease-fire, which might leave the way open for a continued build-up of Chinese Communist forcos in Korea. The throe-man body would get the in- terested countries to agree to fix- ed conditions for halting the con- flict. The second proposal would create another commission to meet as soon as possible and make rec- ommendations for settling all is- sues in the Far East. The spon- sors left it up to the assembly to form this commission, but they envisaged a seven-nation body. Introduction of these proposals was expected to shunt aside de- bate on a U. S.-backed resolution Washington Senatorj George (D.-Ga.) predicted today i that any national emergency de- clared soon by President Truman will be only the forerunner of price and wage controls next month. George, who heads the Senate finance committee, told a reporter he thinks the time is fast ap- proaching when economic controls will be clamped down. He predict- ed the President will act during January at the latest. Senator Lyndon Johnson (D.-Tex- chairman of a Serate armed services preparedness subcommit- tee, said the time already has ar- rived for such controls. Johnson was one of many members of Con- gress who have been urging im- mediate action, Work on Machinery Administration officials have conceded that wage-pries controls are inevitable but there has been no authoritative estimate on how soon the machinery can be set up to handle them. As all signs pointed to a speedup in home front mobilization, there were these other developments: 1. President Truman was consid- ering a nation-wide broadcast with- in the next few days to tell the American people of the need for drastic action. There were indica- tions this might be linked to a declaration of a national emergen- cy which may come this week. 2. Chairman 'Maybank (D.-S.C.) of the Senate banking committee said in a Charleston, S. C., speech last night that the Commerce de- partment probably will slap string- ent controls on essential defense materials shortly. He said this may mean restrictions early next year on what manufacturers can make with materials allotted them. New Regulation 3.

Yott Washington Ufl More ques- tions were left unanswered today than were settled by a Supreme court decision that persons quiz- zed by grand juries about Com- munist activities may keep silent if their answers might involve them in criminal prosecution. There was plenty of speculation about the impact of the decision on similar but not identical cases, but most legal experts shied clear Russia Getting War Materials From West By Brack Curry and Richard K.

Long, long ago. before the ape of automobiles, a noted editor of a great newspaper was walking slong Madison street in Chicago. It was a cold, blustery evening. The wind swept in from Lake Mich- igan. It was Christmas eve and the editor had the feeling of the day in his blood. Suddenly kneeling in the snow on the sidewalk, peering into a store window below the frost line, he observed a rag- ged tot. The editor got down beside him and looked in too. It was a fuzzy white toy dog in the from be- ing there all the Christmas season. "Do you want that the editor asked. The boy look up hut said nothing.
