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.

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.  P r * 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.   Bu A  tb e “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.  C4 T 4 hese 2  r , eports sai d 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 b y  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.
