Let’s Wait—Moore Se nator Moore (Okla) put this sentiment into words in a radio address last night in which he said he had heard of nothing in the first two days without price control to indicate a “national collapse”—or uncontrolled inflation. Calling upon the nation to wait until it can learn whether prices will be “as bdl. or at least any worse, than the black markets jnder which we have suffered so long.” Moore added: “Congress' i- always available tor emergent ' le gislation.” In a later broadcast.

The University of Chicago student was arrested Wednesday night on one of th** burglary charges. The fedora! bureau of investigation reported tjiat one of his palm and finger prints were “identical'’ with prints found on a note demanding $209)00 ransom from the Degnan family. Counsel for Heirens waived preliminary examination at the arraignment < n the assault and burglary charges. After the youth’s attorneys had lost a court light to obtain his release on a writ of habeas corpus yesterday, Heirens was formally rharg-'d with assault with intent to murder, three charges of assault with intuit to kill and 21 burglaries. None of the charges involve tho Degnan crime, said State’s Attorney William J.

The second test, exoected in three or four weeks, will produce mute a high spout and some sizeable waves, he said The evaluation hoard and correspondents could safely havej been closer to the bomb cxnlos- { sion.

(The observers* were from 15 to 18 miles away ) For the underwater test to] coffle Compton believes observers jean he closer because the water] i will have some shielding effect.
