McCarthy's write-the-president ap- peal. It said they were running a little stronger than two to one in support of the Wisconsin Repub- lican's stand. Murray Snyder, assistant press secretary, said that as of 11 a.m. the count showed were favor- able to McCarthy's demand for a crackdown on Allies trading with Red China and were opposed to his position. Snyder said the White House had received approximately letters, but there had been no tally yet on them. Western Union informed the White House it had a backlog of messages yet to deliver at 11 a.m. Snyder said no further figures would be given out until Monday, j McCarthy had complained Fri- day on the basis of an earlier White House count, that someone on the staff there was making a j short count through what he called j an honest but grievous mistake. But later, after the White House reported receipt of more telegrams and a backlog of still others, Mc- (Carthy said: Figures Revised "I'm happy to see the revised Big 3 to Accept 4-PowerMeeting make a decision which will pro- foundly affect the world balance of power. For Dec. 15 is the final deadline for deciding the level of defense spending for the next fis- cal year. The decision involves, moreover, a certain human drama, in the shape of a tug-of-war between the Damon and Pythias of this Admin- istration. In one corner is Secretary of the Treasury George Hum- phrey. In the other is Humphrey's close personal friend, Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson. The struggle is an object lesson in the way the office shapes the man, for when Wilson and Hum- phrey took office, their views were identical. Wilson was convinced that businesslike methods would make possible heavy cut-backs in defense spending, and almost his first act was to throw the 144- group program of the Air Force into the waste basket. In the po- litical row which ensued, Wilson firmly and publicly committed him- self to the support of whatever de- fense program the new Joint Chiefs of Staff might propose in their "new look" st American defenses.

A spokesman for the plane's owners said the American aboarc was Paul J. Douglas, a U. S State Department courier. He was reportedly attached to the Paris embassy. Officials announced there were only six known survivors. Earlier conflicting casualty reports ranged from cone to 22 killed. The pilot, co-pilot, a mechanic and three Spanish passengers es- caped from the plane after it went down. All six were injured. Both legs of one survivor, a wom- an, were broken. The other sur- vivors carried her over the tor- tuous trail to the nearest village, a three hour hike. Search parties attempting to make their way back to the wreckage were hampered by heavy- rain and fog. Survivors reported the plane's ight engine burst into flame after it struck the mountain.
