A massive blast of icy air, which was spawned in the Arctic region and moved into the northern Rockies with the new year, continued its slow but steady sweep south and eastward across the country By early morning the frigid air, powered by brisk norther- ly winds, reached the Atlan tic coast and gulf coasta areas. Winds from 20 to 35 rn.p.h. whipped the cold air from the tower Great Lakes region southward to the Vir- ginias and- eastward to New Jailed After Silence on News Source England. Bitter cold clung to wide areas in the mid-continent and sections of the Rockies. The cold and snow was blamed for at least 15 deaths. New York Newspa- per columnist Marie Torre surrendered today to begin serving a 10- day jail sen- tence rather than disclose a news source. Miss Torre, who writes a synd i c a t e d television and radio column for the New Miss Tone York Herald Tribune, appeared before Federal District Judge Syl- vester J.

Others died from over-exertion while shoveling snow and in traffic accidents on ice-slicked high- ways. Florida Awaits Freeze Farmers in Florida as far south as Ocala, in the north- central region, got their smudgepots ready when they heard the cold wave forecast Southeast Florida basked in summer-like climes, with an- other day of 70-degree weath- er in sight. Below freezing forecasts in the normally sub-tropical low- er Rio Grande valley worried owners of citrus and vegeta- ble farms. Most of the deep south braced for below freezing weather.

In a note delivered in Mos- cow the government stressed :he 4-power responsibility for German reunification and backed up the previous re- jection of the Soviet proposal by the western Big three. Berlin's future can be dis- cussed only within the frame- work of the whole German question, which is indissolubly bound up with the problems of security and disarmament, the note said.

MILKS Moscow The Soviet Union's rocket contin- ued its headlong dash toward a solar orbit today in man's greatest conquest of space. Its radio signals ceased as the li ton called Mechta (dream) went past miles in its plunge away from the earth. It had then been in flight 62 hours. Resources for feeding the radio equipment had become exhausted, the Soviet news agency Tass said. "The program of observa- tions and scientific investiga- tions of the rocket has been an announcement said. Maximum Orbit This' predicted ttie rocket will finally enter an orbit around the sun Wednesday or Thursday. It is due to go into orbit between the orbits of the earth and Mars. Mechta is due to take 15 months to go around the sun, traveling el- liptically. The Russians calculate this orbit would have a maximum diameter of 214J million ing it lunik, a combination of iuna (moon) and sputnik. Scientists here figured that it was travelling at a maxi- mum speed of 2.45 kilometers (1.52 miles) a second when it passed the moon yesterday at a distance of miles. Results of radio transmis- sions between the rocket and ground stations will be pub- lished as soon as they are an- alyzed, Tass said. The 62 hours of radio com- munication enabled observa- tions to be made of the rock- et's movements, and on the work of the scientific instru- ments aboard. The actual number of days that will be required for the solar orbit will be 447, scien- deaths to the tabulation. Traffic took 376 lives, the mercy of the communist East German regime.
