See Three Walking Orly Field said three persons were seen walking about the wreckage. A party of- Swiss mountain climbers and American r.urses and doctors left Interlaken immediately for the scene of the crash, reported to be 13 miles southeast of that city. Relief supplies were dropped and others were sped on the way to the snowcovered scene. A mes- sage from the faltering radio of the transport yesterday said eight of the 11 were "stretcher cases." U. S. officers in Frankfurt, Vienna and Paris told of the de- velopments in the quest which previously had been p r c s s e d fruitlessly in the French Alps to the southwest after the plane went down on a trip from Munich to Pisa via Marseille. Near EdRC of Wastelands Officials of Orly Field in Paris pinpointed the spot as five miles south of the Swiss village ol Meiringen, which would place it at the northeast edge of the icy wastes of the Bernese Oberland and 10 miles due north of the 3 4.026-f oot-high Finstcraahorn.

Rogers has signed a statement confessing the slaying of his wife, whose negli- gee-clad body was found float- ing in the spillway below Lake Overholser last Saturday; 'the confession may have been the re- sult of Rogers' attending the fu- neral of his wife here Thursday afternoon.

He was visibly shaken when his two-year old daughter was placed-in his arms as he waited OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. N. assistant Oklahoma county attorney, said this afternoon Raymond O. C.

Fla., Nov. 22, Truman departed at a. m. (EST) today in search of deep sea game fish while his cabinet officers fought a legal battle with John L. Lewis in the economic struggle precipitated by the walkout of soft coal miners. The. president boarded a de- stroyer, the USS Stribling, for an all-day fishing trip. Mr. Truman maintained a tight-lipped silence on develop- ments at Washington where Dis- trict Judge T. Alan Goldsborough cited Lewis and his United Mine Workers to show cause why they should not be cited for contempt of his federal injunction. This injunction sought to set aside Lewis' notice to the govern- ment of the cancellation effec- tive at midnight last Wednesday to be taken by a police escort to Of his work contract for his min- Army radio operators blamed magnetic disturbances, which in- lerferid with clear receipt of the transport's messages, for the er- ror in the original triangulalion.

The final day, with important matters crowding the program, could produce a spout of hot words after all but Murray managed the first four days with such a firm hand that bitter fac- tionalism boiled only behind clos- ed doors. In those four days there was nothing faintly resembling a dc- I bate on the floor over anything t all. Seldom in the CIO's history has a convention r u n .that smoothly. Yet the most out- spoken anti-communist elements in the organization came here more bitter than ever before. Antl the1 hostility between the CIO's right and left is sharper now, perhaps, than it has over been. Murray kept the convention from getting out of hand because of the urgent need for unity in Ihi1 face of the approaching wage struggles. He was tiblc to do it becaiiMr he han no posiiible rival us this year all sides recognized his in- clispen.sability. Though undercover warfare between the CIO's right and left is bitter, it is not expected to prevent the biggest unions of factory workers from standing for higher wages. If I hero are to be CIO strikes, a.-i there wen- lasti winter, Mur- ray has paved a road in advance for hlainini! the He declared yesterday that "the ClO never entered n ronl'crenee in its cntii'e lii.slory with the idea of striking."

(Mike) Monroney gave un in- forming talk on "The Re-Or- ganization of Congress' Thurs- day evening in the East Central auditorium. Pete Richeson, president of: the East Central Chapter, League of Young Democrats, gave the open- ing talk and expressed thanks to Congressman Monroney for ap- pearing on the League's program Dr. Frank Spencer, mayor of Ada and sponsor of the League, acted as master- of ceremonies. In a short speech, he expressed desire that the legislative body of Oklahoma should reorganize. Congressman Glenn D. John- son made a brief talk, expressing his thanks for appearing on the program and promising full co- operation to Monroney on his re- organization bill, 1'rcKcnt Methods Obsolete Monroney opened 'his speech tolling of the incompetent tools with which congress had to work. He compared the United States with a B-29 and Congress as an old monkey-wrench, which was used to repair it. The pre- sent congress is obsolete, and is not competent of handling mod- ern affairs of state. He told that last year, some improvement had been made by merging a few of the many corn- (Continued on Page 2 Column 2) By JOHN A. PARRIS, Jr. LAKE SUCCESS, N. Nov United States an expected ,to assume the role o mediator today in an effort to ef feet an agreement on troop in formation and arms reductior proposals now before the Unitec Nations. Authoritative sources said the U. S. was working on a resolu tion that might satisfy the Sovie' Union and Britain on both points Details of the proposed resolu- tion were not known, but it was understood the U. S. delegation views the troops information pro- posal as a minor issue comparec to that of disarmament. Connully Speaker American sources said U. S Senator Tom Connolly (D-Tcx.) would probably speak today be- fore the 54-mcmbcr U.N. pofiticii and security committee, which has the troop and arms proposals under discussion. Soviet foreign minister V. M Molotov was scheduled to fill the Russian seat, and there was the possibility that British foreign secretary Ernest Bevin also would be present. It was believed possible that the committee might vote today on the two controversial ques- tions. The U. S. delegation was in consultation overnight on the is- sues nnd it was understood that Connally would amplify the Am- erican position In the light of statements made yesterday by Bevin and Molotov.. Bevin States British Views In appearing before the com- mittee yesterday, Bevin asked that the whole question of dis- armament be taken up by the United Nations. He rejected Rus- sia's demand for information on allied- troop dispositions abroad unless it was included in such arms limitation talks. Bevin submitted a formal mo- tion that the troop and arms pro- posals be merged, but the com- mittee adjourned without acting. It seemed likely that Bcvin would press for action on this motion today. Before the committee is a Rus- sian resolution calling for reports from all members of the United Nations within one month on their troops, bases and stations abroad as of Nov. 1, The American delegation has maintained that the reports should contain figures on home forces as well, and there was possibility that the U. S, would present a separate resolution cov- j ering this. i I of his work contract for his min- ers which Interior Secretary J. A. Krug contended he had no right to abrogate. Catches Some Fish Thursday The president interrupted his fight with the mine workers chief yesterday for an inspection of a captured German submarine at the naval submarine base here and for a brief fishing expedi- tion with Fleet Admiral William D. Leahy, his chief of staff. Each caught a barracuda, a grouper and a Spanish mackerel. In addition Leahy pulled in "a pompano. Visiting enlisted men at a dance last night, the president, no great shakes as a fisherman, lo_ld the seamen: "I couldn't let a five star admiral catch more fish than myself." Long an advocate of a merger of the army service, the presi- dent said he could go along with rivalry between the services as "long as you remember you work on the same team" and "for the same cause." Urges Reading of Constitution Speaking in a familiar vein he reminded the sailors: "We've just come through the greatest war in history and that (war) never could have been won except for our production and the young men and women in our armed services." The president urged his young auditors to read the United Sta- tes constitution, asserting it is !a very simple document, very easy to read." He added: "You young psople can keep country great, as it always lias been great, or you can let it down. And I know that you will never let it down." Back To Capital Saturday There .was no word hero as to what steps the administration ias in mind to persuade the min- ers to return to their pits in the "ace ol! Lewis' refusal to. order :hcm to do so, Presidential Press Secretary rutrlcs G. Ross told reporters he did not know the administration's next move and would not tell '.hem if he did. Mr. Truman returns to Washi- ngton tomorrow to take over personal direction of the govern- ment's effort to prevent an ;cnded strike.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, Scientists of the navy's South Pole expedition said today their surveys will seek a treasure chest of minerals the continent of Anarctica is believed to be hid- ing under a cap of snow and ice. They hope to learn whether it contained" such rare minerals as uranium, used for atomic energy, as well as get more information about huge coal and copper de- posits, which are believed to exist. The surveys will be in charge of J. R. Balsley, airborne geophy- sicist for the United States geolo- gical survey. New survey in- struments, developed during the war to detect submarines from the air, will permit studies to be made of many times as much ter- ritory by plane as would be pos- sible on the surface, where travel is by dog teams. "We can obtain a large amount of inforinnLinn merely by Hying over the territory in n plane with scientific instruments and aerial mapping Bals- ley said. "The information is studied by geologists and geophysicistrf to detorrr.ine what mineral and oil or other deposits may be present. "VVe already have some infor- mation about ore deposits in Antarctica. Certain work has been started in geological .stu- dies. Our job is to carry on with this work. We know where to start and what to look for." Admiral Richard E. Byrtl, Po- lar explorer in charge of the navy expedition, has said An- tarctica appears to be "rich in minerals." The continent has peaks hiuh- er than the highest in the US. Slate Will Seek Pair of Estates OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov.

Lewis Makes No Comment Must Tell Federal Judge Why He Didn't Recoil Con- tract Termination Order WASHINGTON, Nov. federal marshals served John L. Lewis with a summons today requiring his appearance in federal court Monday morning to answer a contempt citation re- sulting from the soft coal strike. Lewis accepted the summons in his private office "without com- an aide reported. Federal Judge T. Alan Golds- borough last night ordered Lewis to show why he should -not be held in contempt for refusing to withdraw his contract termina- tion notice the signal which led to the walkout of his bituminous coal miners. The two federal deputies went to Lewis' office a few minutes af- ter he arrived at union headquar- ters from his home in nearby Alexandria, Va., where he had been in seclusion for the last 36 hours. Waited for Marshals The deputies ascended to Lewis' sixth-floor office in the union building where the mine leader was waiting for them. The marshals were with Lewis only a few minutes and then left. Apparently in good spirits, the mine union chief emerged from his home-at 10 a.m., for the short drive into the capital. He stood on his porch to pose for cameramen, his cnne on his arm, and a cigar in his hand. "Take your time, Lewis said. To reporters he said JflFrSfd no statement to make other than that ho was headed for United Mine Workers headquarters in Washington. A crowd that gathered around Lewis' suburban Virginia homa yesterday had dwindled away. Only photographers and reporters were on hand when hi; emerged. Next Step Comes Monday The writ, is another step toward Dossible clanging of jail doors in the UMW chieftain's face. It di- him to appear before U. S. iistricl judge T. Alan Goldsbor- ough on Monday and tell why he did not honor an order to recall his contract "termination" o{ Wednesday night. If Lewis fails then to clear himself of the contempt possibly by calling off his "ter- mination" notice or by showing that his stand is lawful the next step will come Wednesday. On that day. Judge Goldsborough, "with an advisory jury" will de- cide Lewis' guilt or innocence. If convicted, the union might be fined arid Lewis sent to jail, until he obeys the court. Tension Mounts in Fields In the mine fields, tension. mounted as the idl-e watched the struggle between, their leader and the government. Two men were shot fatally in West Virginia in the first major flare-up of violence. Kailrnads, steel mills mid their customers, public utilities nnd other big users of soft conl began battening down for the worst a protracted work stoppage in the mines. A "brownout" to save fuel darkened the capitol dome itself, while republican and democratic congress members join.-d in dc- mnndtf for extraordinary meas- ures. Some asked a special si-s- fion of congress but men close to President Truman said that was unlikely. Greater returns for'amount in- vested, Ada News Wnnt Ads.
