Oct. President Truman has sent a mes- sage to King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia reiterating his belief that steps should 1jo taken to insure the immediate substantial immi- gration of refugee Jews into Pal- estine. He told the Arab leader that he could not agree with the. Jailer's statement that there was incon- s.stpncy in the American position. Replying to a letter received from Ibn Saud October 15, the presiilejit wote: "With regard to the possibility envisaged by your majesty lhal fiiice and violence may be used by Jews in aggressive schemes the neighboring Arab countries. 1 can asi.ure you Unit this government stands opposed to ai'.iircspion of any kind or to the employment of terrorism for political purposes. 1 may add, moreover, that 1 am convinced that responsible Jewish leaders do not contemplate a policy ol ;iRC.' ession against the Arab coun- tries adjacent to Palestine." Holirf Unchanged The president said ho still ad- lit: ed to the belief, "widely shared by the people of this coun- that nothing would contrib- ute more effectively to the alle- viation of the plight of homeless Jews "than the authorization of tr.e immediate entry of at least 100.000 of them to Palestine." In a letter released by the White Hous? today he reminded the Arab leader that no decision has been made on this proposal which he submitted originally to Prime Minister Attlee of Great Britain more than a year ago. Other Laws Could Help In the interim, "it is only nat- ural" that this government should favor "at this time the entry into Palestine of considerable numbers of displaced Jews in Europe." The president reiterated a pre- vious view that a concerted ef- fort should be made "to open the gates of other lands, including :he United Stales, to those un- fortunate persons." He added that he is prepared ask Congress lor special legis- lation "admitting to this country additional numbers of these per- sons, over and above the immi- quotas fixed by our laws." Ham, Bacon Are On Way Back Nome Hit By Heavy Storm Icy Gale Wrecks Buildings With Damage Estimated Over NOME, Alaska, Oct. 28, Scarred and battered Nome to- day began denning the wreckage of 18 buildings destroyed or damaged during an ice gale .that swept in from the Bering sea over the weekend. As the storm roared north- ward, property owners estimat- ed their loss at between and Six business buildings were wrecked and 12 seriously damag- ed. All were on the south side of the town's main thoroughfare paralleling the waterfront: Base- ments wore flooded in many oth- ers which withstood the pound- ing seas and 60-mile-an-hour winds. No lives were lost and only a few minor injuries were re- ported. Warning that the storfn was approaching gave the townspeo- ple time to form emergency crews and move merchandise and supplies from the danger area. Damage was limited almost entirely to the business section and as a result no housing short- age is anticipated among the 1.- 500 to 2.000 wintertime residents. The native village nearby was harder hit. and several families whose dwellings were destroyed are being cared for in the na- tive school.

The pre-election coal crisis head- ed into the showdown stage today between John L. Lewis and the Truman administration. While Lewis himself appeared to be on something of a spot with his implied threat of a walkout by his soft coal miners Friday, the immediate pressure was on the White House. The big decision that has to be made there is whether (1) to give in the government did when Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug signed a contract with Lewis last spring to end that 59- day strike or (2) to let the miners quit work four. days be- fore the elections and take what- ever political consequences there might be.

John Rogge, ousted from the at- torney general's department for disclosing contents of a report he had prepared, said here today he would continue to make public the subject matter of the report "because the American people are entitled to know about the fascist threat to democracy." "I shall hit the dangers facing this country from foreign he as- serted. The former special .assistant attorney general, discharged after a Swarthmore, Pa., address last week, said he will proceed with a speaking tour which will take him through the Pacific coast states this month, into the mid- west and east in November, and the south in December. In dismissing Rogge Saturday, Attorney General Clark said his assistant had violated justice de- partment rules by quoting sec- tions of the report dealing with Nazi efforts to influence Ameri- can elections. To this Rogge replied: "I shall make further disclosures of the attempted Nazi penetration in the United States. The American peo- ple are entitled to know about the fascist threat to democracy, and the manner in which foreign countries attempt to influence this nation's thought and policy." He said he intended to devote his address in Portland, Ore., Tuesday to the influence upon congress of George Sylvester Vie- reck, sentenced in 1943 to 2-6 years for failure to register as a foreign agent.

Bev- in sailed from Southampton, Eng, yesterday. Byrnes, Bevin Meet Soon Secretary of State Byrnes also is due next weekend for the for- eign ministers conference open- ing a week from today to wind up the eastern European peace treaties. Diplomatic informants speculated that Byrnes and Bev- in would get together quickly on strategy for countering a Russian proposal to the U. N. assembly that they be required to report on their troops in foreign coun- tries. Foreign Minister Molotov is al- ready here and, with other mem- bers of the Soviet delegation, is the center of heated speculation over whether Russia may be de- veloping a more "conciliatory" or "cooperative" attitude toward working with the western powers on grave international issues. Reds May East Position Molotov's very presence here, ahead of the other great power ministers, is interpreted by some U. S. informants as a possible in- dication of a new attitude. More- over, three days ago in a com- mittee meeting, Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vishinsky un- expectedly withdrew certain Rus- sian proposals when they met stiff majority opposition. Topping off this trend of events, Vishinsky and Ambassador Ni- colai M. Novikov yesterday head- ed a five-man Russian group which participated along with other U. N. delegates in a solemn pontificial high mass in Roman Catholic St. .Patrick's Cathedral on Fifth Avenue, The Soviet and all other dele- gations had been invited to the mass "to invoke divine guidance upon the deliberations of the gen- eral assembly" several days ago, in the name of Cardinal Spell- man. Against this background of hopes, speculations and forecasts going to rounds of the 51 national delegations gathered here, the as- sembly went into its second week today with a packed calendar of 10 speeches and several commit- tee meetings. Among the coun- tries to be heard from were two of the Big and China. Representatives of Egypt, Sau- di Arabia and Syria are among the scheduled speakers today, and some possibility was seen that one of the trip might raise the highly touchy question of Palestine.
