The two houses, meeting at noon, scheduled only routine formalities, including the swearing in of six members to fill vacancies caused bv deaths and resignations. There was the po.ssibility they would adjourn quickly out of respect to Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson, who died Sept. 8 when Congress was not in session. The first session of this 83rd Congress adjourned the night ôf Aug. 3, Tomorrow President Eisenhower gvie.s before a joint session with the State of the Vnion message outlining his program for the year.

The chief projects of the C-C which may face more opposition during the past year have been ' winding up opening of con.struction chances for world peace—a note echoed publicly by Sen. Griswold (R-Neb>, just back from a visit to Europe and Asia. Griswold, who did not attend the conference, said in an interview: “I have come back with the feeling that there is not going to be a shooting war.

Nelson’s addre.ss was given as 5408 Chapel Oaks Drive. Chapel Oaks. Md.. near the District of Columbia line. Other details wore not immediately available. The case broke open yesterday with the arrest of a bureau employe, his wife, and a soft-spoken little flagpole painter on a tip furnished-after all-night soul searching—by the father of the woman. The three are Negroes. They were arrested one after the other in a day that began with a 5 a.m phone call to Virginia state police by Irving Grant, father of Mrs. Mamie Landis, and ended with the recovery of $128.300, in three separate caches, of the loot apparently smuggled from the money printing plant in the tail of a suit jacket.

The Booth family received the government notification Saturday, “They still don’t know anything definite.’’ Mrs. Booth said Wednesday morning. “It appeared for and was in combat for a short time before the truce was signed July 27. “Basel will come back home about    next March,    if they    get things    settled    over    there,”    Mrs. Gwmn said.

Booth has been missing 19 months, his mother said, since July 17, 1952. He left Abilene on Nov. 27. 1951 for Korea. The last woixi she received from him was a letter postmarked July 12. she said, although his girlfriend in Fort Worth received one dated July 16. the day before he disappeared into the confu.sion of the w'ar. Since then the Booths have heard “nothing definite ” about their son’s fate, although one returned veteran told them “several hide the money after his daughter different stories” about what hap- and her companions dropped in on him Sunday night. Then, till dawn, he wrestled with pened. He had been “shell-shocked or something.” Mrs. Booth said, and his conscience and fear of the law. | each time the story came out He told his wife what had happened. She had a heart attack. Finally Grant went to a telephone. He had. he told the police, “a big pile of Treasury money”—and was “scared to death.” 11 SINCE NEW YEAR'S differently.

Girls in a dormitory nearby discovered the blaze about 2 a.m. and the building burned to the ground within an hour. Students and the Cisco Volunteer Fire Department who fought the fire could do little more than keep it from spreading to other buildings. Only part of the brick walls of the two-story building remained standing. Cause Undertemined Cause of the fire was underter-mined and Fire Marshal C, R. Hightower was checking to determine its origin. The administration building housed the majority of the college’s classrooms, the auditorium, business offices, music and science departments and the library which alone wa.s valued at more than $.50.000. Manv of the books that burned cannot be replaced. O. L, Stamey. president of the college, estimated the total loss at over $200.000. The building and its contents were partially covered by $180.000 of insurance. The fire is believed to be the costliest in the history of Cisco, a federal penitentiary.    Girls    w’ho discovered the fire O’Brien and City Police Com- were in a dormitone about 200 feet rnissioner Donald F.
