Harlan Broyles is scheduled to die Dec. 31 for the Nicholson slaying. Law enforcement authorities investigated Barnett's story and described it as "absolutely not true."

Give Up Hope For 15 Believed Still Buried in House Weary Workers Dig Ahead With Bodies of 21 Persons Recovered IsTEW YORK, Dec. 13. Weary workers who dug the bodies of 21 persons from the wreckage of a collapsed tenement house in a slow, grim procession of death gave up hope today for the lives of 15 others believed buried under tons of rubble. As the broken body of Rose Fucci, 15, was carefully extricat- ed from the ruins, police said they planned to set three steam shovels to work on the ruins of the building in which more than 30 were injured. Workers had previously carefully dug by hand because they feared heavy ma- 0. C.

Rescue workers toiled, all night in the glare of huge searchlights which played over the six-story structure's gaunt remains. They had to abandon most of their heavy power machinery and re- sort to bare hands and small tools in an effort to avoid an- other collapse. Shortly after 1 a. m.

One child still clutched a gaily wrapped Christ- mas package. They were identified as Mrs. Elizabeth Biancardi, 37, and Joyce, 12, and Lucille, 8. Timothy P.

Schwieger believes there's a tjme and place for letting pigs in the parlor. Flood waters inundated his troop census debate by propos- ing that all nations report im- mediately on the number of troops they had in alien non- enemy countries. The question later was broadened to include forces in enemy countries and, finally domestic troops as well. Troop-Question Rejected The compromise resolution re- jecting the troop question for the time being was approved by a, vote of 29 to 4. with Russia among those against it. There were six abstentions. Earlier the committee had re- jected by a. vote of 25 to 6 a Czechoslovak nroposal that it re- port back to the general assem- bly its inability to agree. The political .committee thus completed its work for the pres- ent, assembly session, which had included such controversial ques- tions as the Spanish and veto is- sues. Both the arms reduction the troop census resolu- tion now go to the assembly and may come up for action tonight. Agree On Arms Cut Resolution The arms reduction resolution was assured of final assembly approval when it was adopted by the committee without a dissent- ing vote. The resolution recommended that the security council formu- late plans for armaments limita- tions and; up inspection and control machinery to detect and prevent violations. The machinery will be free of the big power veto. It must be approved finally by a special session of the general assembly and then be ratified by indivi- dual states. The program includes provis- ions for the outlawing of atomic bombs and other weapons of mass destruction and the control of atomic energy used for peace- ful purposes. Two Women Killed Near Pauls Valley Seven Others Injured In Auto Accidents Involving Four Vehicles PAULS VALLEY, Okla., Dec. women were kill- ed and seven men and women were injured in auto accidents involving four vehicles last night near Pauls Valley. The dead were identified by the Oklahoma highway patrol as Mrs. Pawnee McNath, about 27 years old and Mrs. Thomas Lee Thacker, about 70, both of Pauls Valley. The patrol said the injured were Thomas J. Woods, Marietta; Mrs. Willie Fox, .'Pauls Valley; Oliver Shoemate, Pauls Valley; Thomas Lee Thacker, Charles L. Thacker, Letoy Thacker and Vio- let Lee Thacker, all of Pauls Val- ley. Patrol Troopers Jack Herbert and Lloyd Matthews, gave this report: The truck of Henry T. Steven- son, a farmer who lives near Rush Springs, stalled on U. S. Highway 7.7 three-fourths of a mile west of Pauls Valley about 9-p. m. The truck carried clear- ance lights on the rear end to warn approaching traffic with a flashlight while Stevenson push- ed the truck off the road. An a u t o m o b i.l e driven by Woods collided with Stevenson's truck. In the car were Mrs. Mc- Nath, Mrs. Fox and Shoemate. Police officers from Pauls Val- ley set out flares. A truck driv- en by Marvin Clifton Garren of Dallas, Tex., passed by slowly, then an automobile hit it from the rear. In it were the five Thackers. Garren, Stevenson and David were not hurt. The patrol said traffic deaths for December now total 12 and for the year, 482. This is exactly 100 more than at the same time in 1945. farm and marooned him. Many of his 400 pigs were drowned or lost. But when rescue parties ar- rived Schwieger declined their offer to evacuate him, saying he had to take care of his pigs.

Eisenhower's family home is going to be pre- served as the center of a pro- posed memorial to him and to the United- States armed forces. C. M.

Burrell Michealis, president of the local, said a decision on what union officers would do about the situation awaited a confer- ence with an international offic- er, C. L. Aber, who arrived from Kansas City. Michealis said he called a 2 m. meeting today to read to the members the report of an ar- bitration board which recom- mended a 5-cent an hour increase rather than the 20-cent hike the union asked. Felt Award Not Fair "After the men heard the re- port, they were dissatisfied with the award, thought it was not fair and voted to continue meet- said Michealis, Union members then elected four of their number as a com- mittee to handle any dealings with the Oklahoma Railway company. They em- phasized they were not on strike. Members of the commit- tee are V. R. Mellot. V. L. Mill- er, E. E. Pope and A. F. Yeag- er. Offer "Ridiculous" Mellott, spokesman, said: "For six months we had- hop- ed .to avert this action because of the hope the arbitration board would give the men a decent raise. It is ridiculous what they have offered us." A meeting of union members continued at the Municipal audi torium. In discussion among civic leaders at City. Hall, a suggested basis for getting service resum- ed was for the city council to ask the corporation commission to give a speedy hearing to the com- pany's request for a higher fare Said Mayor Robert A. Hef- ner: "So far the city officially has been an on-looker in connection with this request (the fare-hike) On the basis of what facts I have at present I do not know wheth- er any official action by the city would be tantamount to our ask ing the commission to approve an increase which the public would have to pay." Railway company office work- ers, who belong to the railroac brotherhood of clerks, reported for duty. School, Business As Usual City taxicabs were busy Schools continued in session ar.d major downtown business firms reported business as usual. Officials of the Oklahoma Gas Electric Co., notified early sent co.mpany automobiles ou for key employes.

Southwestern Bell Co., held company car's in read- iness for emergency transporta- tion, but full crews, both loca" and long distance, arrived in plenty of time. Both Armour Co., and Wil- son Co., the city's major pack- ers reported full crews on the job. Fred Shaw, postmaster, saic that 'all mail delivery employes arrived promptly, and that car- riers who ordinarily ride the street cars to the starting point of their routes "were taken out this morning in the army trucks we have for emergency service." REA Loans Total 30 Million in Stale WASHINGTON, Dee. cooperatives and one power company in Oklahoma have received in loans from the Rural Electrification Administration since it was es- tablished in 1935. Two-thirds of the funds were used to construct miles of lines to serve farms and other rural consumers in 67 coun- ties. Last year the REA approved loans totaling more than for Oklahoma Rural Coops to provide power and light and additional farni and non-farm rural homes in the state. Of those consumers, nearly 000 are in unelectrified areas of nine southeastern counties Atoka, Choctaw, Haskell, Lati- mer, LeFlore, McCurtain, Pitts- burg, Pushmataha and Sequoyah.

Urges Members To Break Relations With Franco Spain Assembly Tosses Hot Issue Into Laps of Its 54 Members; Britain to Recall Ambassador From Madrid Very Shortly; Spain Silent as Yet By LARRY IIAUCK NEW YORK, Dec. United Nations gen- eral assembly today tossed one of its hottest .issues into the laps of. its 54 members by recommending withdrawal of am- bassadors and ministers from Franco Spain and a British spokesman immediately announced his country would "very shortly" recall its ambassador from Madrid. A government source in London said Sir Victory Mallet, British Ambassador to Spain, v.-ould be recalled in accord- ance the U. N. resolution declaring the Franco govern- to be n "Fascist regime." The informant said the Franco government to bo a "Fascist re- Rime." The informant said D. F. Howard would be British charge d'affaires in Ma- drid and that the embassy prob- ably would be reduced to status of a legation. In Madrid a Spanish foreign ministry spokesman said it was "too early" for comment, on tho UN assembly vole. No official Spanish comment on the UN vote was expected until after the reg- ular cabinet meeting, scheduled for 5 p. in. today. Some Refrain from Voting Diplomats in Madrid who would be affected by the UN res- olution include vjninister? front the Dominican Republic and El Salvador, which voted against the UN resolution, and the Neth- erlands and Turkey, which ab- stained from voting. All other UN diplomatic missions in Spain, are headed by charges d'affaires, some of whom have the personal rank of ministers but not of min- isters plenipotentiary. The United Stales has had no ambassador at Madrid sine? the return of Norman Armour. By recommending that ill member nations immediately re- call the ambassadors and minis- ters from Madrid, the UN prepar- ed for a showdown on its pow- ers to enforce decisions.

Pauley Puts Blame Squarely on Russia For Manchuria Acts Says Destruction, Removal Of Foodstuffs and Ma- chinery Wrecked Industry WASHINGTON, Dec. 13. Edwin W. Pauley, President Tru- man's reparations representative, puts squarely on Russia the "ma- jor r e s p o n s i b il i t y" for the "wrecked condition" of Manchur- ian industry. Destruction that accompanied Soviet confiscation and removal of foodstuffs and machinery, Pauloy declares in a formal re- port to President Truman, indi- cate there were "long-range stra- tegic reasons" behind the Russian action. The report was dated Nov. 12 and has now been, distributed to some congressmen. "The chaos caused by the Sov- the report said, "has pro- duced a condition of instability both politically and Economically which will take a long lime to correct. It left a populace cold, hungry and full of unrest." With its abundant 'natural re- sources and industrial plants, Pauley continued, Manchuria would have been the logical point to begin the rehabilitation of China.' Pauley, who made nn inspec- tion trip to Manchuria last June and July, said is considered to be a conservative estimate of the damage." to Man- churia resulting from the Soviet occupation. "The difference in condition of the Manchuria industrial plant between Japanese surrender and the dates the Pauley mission made its survey is the report said. "How much of the wrecked condition is a1 direct result of Soviet removals and how much may be ascribed to pillage, civil war, and other indirect conse- quences of the Soviet occupation can not be accurately determin- ed. In any case, the Soviet gov- ernment must bear the major re- sponsibility." Pauley said "the excuse that the articles removed were in the nature of 'war booty' and were desperately needed to replace damage caused by the German invasion at home does not fully cover the situation." dp with a man who once aligned himself with Hitler and Musso- lini, -K- WASHINGTON, Doc.
