Night Almost Summer-Warm But Thursday night was even more out of line. The government thermometer was set at 59 decrees at 7 p. rn. and during the night moved it up to 63 degrees, which approaches summer weather. A gusty wind out of the south helped keep the warm night air from being uncomfortable. However, the long-expr rted charge may be on its way, according to the Associated Press. r Some Areas to Get Snow* Occasional rams beginning in the state today are due to change to snow* in the northwest tonight with tempo ~tures diving. Rain changing to snow is forecast for the west and north Saturday, with rain and the southeast and much colder temperatures generally.

Dec. 27 (.Au-Senator Elmer Thomas (D-Okla) brought a hot congressional issue to the floor today with the as-sertion that all immigration into the United States should be halted immediately. “I make no distinction as to race or nationality,” Thomas told a reporter. “We already have too many people in this country.” President Truman said last October, in calling for substantial immigration of Jews into Palestine.* that he is prepared to ask congress for liberalization*of this country’s laws to admit thousands of refugees into the United States. Republican senators, who will hold a majority in the session starting next Friday, indicated today they want to see Mr. Truman s specific proposal before they commit themselves. But Thomas, who tried unsuccessfully during the last session of congress to halt all immigration for five years, declared: “I am against immigration Stonewall Man Is Seriously Hud In Hunting Accident The condition of Joe Mooney of Stonewall 1S reported poor at \ alley \ jew* hospital w here he was taken late Thursday afternoon after suffering a gunshot wound.

Wilcox, Oil Leader For Many Years, Dies al Tulsa Baruch Stays Firm In Demand Against Veto in Atom Plans By LARRY HAUCK LAKE SUCCESS. N. Y.. Dec. 27.    ,-4‘>—Andrei A. Gromvko Soviet delegate to the United Nations atomic energy commission. was absent today as the commission w*ent into a secret session for a showdown discussion of the United States plan tor atomic control. Pr* S. P. Alexandrov, white-haired Russian scientist, took over his country’s seat after telling reporters tersely that Gromvko was “occupied with other business. United States delegate to the Lnited Nations atomic energy- commission held his ground as the commission went into ses-behind closed doors (9 a. rn. CST) as a committee of the whole to consider recommendations and general findings in the report it must make to the U. N, security council next Tuesday. For a time it appeared that Baruch s plan would encounter rough sailing because the Canadian delegation had circulated a number of comments and suggest ions affecting the proposals which Baruch wants the commission to adopt as its- blueprint for atomic control. BuA tbe “second echelon” of the United States and Canadian delegations met for hours late yesterday and were reported to have agreed on all points, thus smoothing the way for Baruch w hen the test is made in the commission. C4T4hese2 r,eports said the United States delegation lost no ground on its basic demands in the agreement. The two delegations wore said to have been separated only on procedural matters, but never on fundamentals. Baruch demanded at the first atomic commission meeting last June that the veto of the five gloat powers be dropped in any atomic control system. Russia s position is an enigma. Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromyko pleaded last week for more time to study the United States plan and indicated then he might be prepared to discuss it late this week. There still is no indication whether Gromvko is prepared to go ahead with tile discussion m tomorrow*’s committee meeting. I C B. Schram, local Merchant, Dies Of Head Attack Here C. B.

Th* Associated Press Prices for many cost of living it ns tumbled suddenly yester-day in major cities throughout t ’ nation, led by a sharp break in th# New York .md Chicago * butter markets. The decline in the butter wholesale irices brought an immediate drop of nil e to IO cents a pound in some of the principal chain stores in the east. Egg prices likewise dropped sharply in a number of places, led bv a wholesale decline of moi than five cents a dozen in New York, and reducti ms in some food items were reported in York Chicago, Boston, Phil adelphia Atlanta, Kansas City, Los Angeles and San rancisco. Clothes Prices Down At the same time, a crosscountry survey by the Associated Press showed that many of the big department stores in major cities had slashed some clothing prices by from one-third to more than 50 percent in an outbreak of post-Christmas and y e a r e n d tale*. Still unsettled, however, was whether the price drops were temporary or whether many of them would continue to hold or evei. extend their decline It was learned that in Chicago retailers associations there now were looking for pronounced general reductions in food prices in February and have been urging their members to get rid of heir present stocks.
