By LOUS NI VIN
PARIS. Nov. 22. —(ZP)—Orly airfield announced tonight that the wreckage of an American C-53 transport sought since Tuesday had been found in the Alps r»ea~ Interlake n. Switzerland, and that all the ll persons aboard were alive.
The transport was found on a 30-degree slope about 500 feet from the peak of a 10,000-foot-high mountain, according to a message from one of the search planes which was in direct communication with the grounded crewmen.
See Three Walking
Orly Field said three persons were seen walking about the wreckage. A party of Swiss mountain climbers and American nurses and doctors left Interlaken immediately for the scene of the crash, reported to be 13 miles Southeast of that city.
Relief supplies were dropped and others were sped on the way t the snowcovered scene. A message from the faltering radio of the transport yesterday said eight of the ll were “stretcher cases.”
U. S. officers in Frankfurt,
\ ie nr. a and Paris told of the developments in the quest which previously had been pressed fruitlessly in the French Alps to the southwest after the plane went down on a trip from Munich to Pisa via Marseille.
Near Edge of Wastelands
Officials of Orlv Field in Paris I pinpointed the spot as five miles j south of the Swiss village ol Meirmgen, which would place it at the northeast edge of the icy wastes of the Bernese Oberland and IO miles due north of the 14.026-foot-high Finsteraahorn.
American and Italian parachutists and trained mountaineers stood by for renewed efforts lo save tho passengers and crewmen—-Brig. Gen. Loyal M. Haynes, his wife, the wives of three other army officers and an 11-year-old girl among them. They had pleaded by an enfeebled radio for medical aid, food aud clothing.
Foul weather blocked off the searchers temporarily this morning after a new radio “fix” on the transport swung the hunt to I ne area below Interlaken from £ zone in the French Alps approximately 80 miles to tho southwest. where ground and air rescue efforts had proved fruitless..
Army radio operators blamed magnetic disturbances, which Interfered with clear receipt of the transports messages, for the error in the original triangulation.

KEY WEST, Fla., Nov. 22. UP) -—President Truman departed at 8:14 a. m. (EST) today in search of deep sea game fish while his cabinet officers fought a legal battle with John L. Lewis in the economic struggle precipitated by the walkout of 400.000 soft coal miners.
The president boarded a destroyer, the USS Stribling, for an all-day fishing trip.
Mr. Truman maintained a tight-lipped silence on developments at Washington where District Judge T. Alan Goldsborough cited Lewis and his United Mine Workers to show cause why they should not be cited for contempt of his federal injunction.
This injunction sought to set aside Lewis’ notice to the government of the cancellation cf fee-

ATLANTIC CITY N. J., Nov.
22. UP)—CIO delegates end their five-day meeting today by re-(looting President Philip Murray --the man who performed the tuck of making a CIO convention sound like one big happy family.
The final day, with important matters crowding the program, could produce a spout of hot words after all — but Murray managed the first four days with such a firm hand that bitter factionalism boiled only behind closed doors.
In those four days there was nothing faintly resembling a de- ‘Vc\,u »*i 1T*“«Vnry£,.cr and w;,s bate on the floor over anything ?jai JJI? * ^!yo' TjYre he took at all. SJI9?9 ^Chevrolet which carried
Seldom in the CIO’s history has a convention run that smoothly. Yet the most outspoken anti-communist elements rn the organization came here more bitter than ever before.
And tile hostility between the CIO* right and loft is sharper now. perhaps, than it has ever been.
Murray kept the convention from getting out of hand because of the urgent need for unity in the face of the approaching wage struggle*. He was able to do it because he has no possible rival as president -not this year —and all sides recognized his indispensability.
Though undercover warfare between the CIO’s right and left is bitter, it is not expected to prevent the biggest unions of factory workers from standing together for higher wages.
If there are to be CIO strikes, as there were last winter, Murray has paved a road in advance fnr blaming the employers. He declared yesterday that “the CIO never entered a conference in its entire history with the idea of striking He called on industrialists to “be gentlemen.” sit down at the table and work out agreements without resort to strikes.

LAKE SUCCESS. N. Y., Nov. 22—(/**)—The United States are expected .to assume the role of mediator today in an effort to effect an agreement on troop information and arms reduction proposals now before the United Nations.
Authoritative sources said the U. S. was working on a resolution that might satisfy the Soviet Union and Britain on both points.
Details of the proposed resolution were not known, but it was understood the U. S. delegation views the troops information proposal as a minor issue compared to that of disarmament.
American sources said U. S. Senator Tom Connally (D-Tex.) would probably speak today before the 54-member U N. political and security committee, which has the troop and arms proposals under discussion.
Soviet foreign minister V. M. Molotov was scheduled to fill the Russian seat, and there was the possibility that British foreign secretary Ernest Bevin also would lie present.
It was believed possible that the committee might vote today on the two controversial questions.
The U. S. delegation was in consultation overnight on the issues and it was understood that Connally would amplify the American position in the light of statements made yesterday by Bevin and Molotov.
Bevin States British Views
In appearing before the committee yesterday, Bevin asked that the whole question of disarmament be taken up by the United Nations. He rejected Russia’s demand for information on allied troop dispositions abroad unless it was included in such arms limitation talks.
Bevin submitted a formal motion that the troop and arms proposals be merged, but the committee adjourned without acting.
It seemed likely that Bevin would press for action on this motion today.
Before the committee is a Russian resolution calling for reports from all members of the United Nations within one month on their troops, bases and stations abroad as of Nov. I.
The American delegation has maintained that the reports should contain figures on hoihe forces as well, and there was rn possibility that the U. S. would present a separate resolution covering this. i
ers which Interior Secretary J. A. Krug contended he had no right to abrogate.
Catches Some Fish Thursday
The president interrupted his fight with the mine workers chief yesterday for an inspection of a captured German submarine at the naval submarine base here and for a brief fishing expedition with Fleet Admiral William D. Leahy, his chief of staff.
Each caught a barracuda, a grouper and a Spanish mackerel. In addition Leahy pulled in a pompano. *
Visiting enlisted men at a dance last night, the president, no great shakes as a fisherman, told the seamen: “I couldn’t let a five star admiral catch more fish than myself.”
Long an advocate of a merger of the army service, the president said he could go along with rivalry between the services as “long as you remember you work on the same team” and “for the same cause.”
Urges Reading of Constitution
Speaking in a familiar vein he reminded the sailors:
“We’ve just come through the greatest war in history and that (war) never could have been won except for our production and the 12,800,000 young men and women in our armed services.”
The president urged his young auditors to read the United States constitution, asserting it is “a very simple document, very easy to read.” He added:
“You young people can keep our country great, as it always has been great, or you can let it down. And I know that you will never let it down.”
Back To Capital Saturday There was no word here as to what steps the administration has in mind to persuade the miners to return to their pits in the face of lewis’ refusal to order them to do so.
^ presidential Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told reporters he did not know the administration’s next move and would not tell them if he did.
Mr. Truman returns to Washington tomorrow to take over personal direction of the government’s effort to prevent an intended strike.

WASHINGTON. Nov. 22. CP Scientists of the navy’s South Pole expedition said today their surveys will seek a treasure chest of minerals the continent of Anarctiea is believed to be hiding under a cap of snow and ice.
They hope to learn whether it contained such rare minerals as uranium, used for atomic energy. as well as get more information about huge coal and cooper deposits, which are believed to exist.
The surveys will be in charge of J. R. Ba Is ley, airborne geophysicist for the Unittd States geological survey. New survey instruments, developed during the war to detect submarines from the air, will permit studies to be made of many times as much territory by plane as would be possible on the surface, where travel is bv dog teams.
“We can obtain a large amount of information merely b\ flying oyer the territory in a plane with scientific instruments and aerial mapping cameras.” Bagley said.
“The information is studied by geologists and geophysicists* to determine what mineral and oil or other deposits may he present “We already have some information about ore deposits in Antarctica.

Lewis Makes No Comment
Must Tell Federal Judge Why He Didn't Recoil Contract Termination Order
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22—(J? —Two federal marshals server John L. Lewis with a summon: today requiring his appearance ii federal court Monday morning tx answer a contempt citation re suiting from the soft coal strike Lewis accepted the summons ir his private office “without com ment,” an aide reported.
Federal Judge T. Alan Golds borough last night ordered Lewi: to show why he should -not be held in contempt for refusing tc withdraw his contract termina Bon notice — the signal which led to the walkout of his 400.00 bituminous coal miners.
The two federal deputies wenl to Lewis’ office a few minutes after he arrived at union headquarters from his home in nearby Alexandria, Va., where he had been in seclusion for the last 36 hours.
Waited for Marshals
The deputies ascended to Lewis sixth-floor office in the union building where the mine leader was waiting for them.
The marshals were with Lew* only a few minutes and then left.
Apparently in good spirits, the mine union chief emerged from his home at IO a rn., for the short drive into the capital.
He stood on his porch to pose for cameramen, his cane on his ar,u* and a cigar rn his hand.
“Take your time, boys,” Lewis said.
To reporter* he said MEHM
statement to make other than that he was headed for United Mine Workers headquarters in washington.
A crowd that gathered around Lewis suburban Virginia home yesterday had dwindled away. Only photographers and reporters were on hand when he emerged. Next Step Comes Monday T lie writ is another step toward possible clanging of jail doors in the I MW chieftain’s face. It directs him to appear before U S. district judge T. Alan Goldsborough on Monday and tell why he did not honor an order to recall his contract “termination” of Wednesday night.
If Lewis fails th en to clear himself of the contempt charge—-possibly by calling off his “termination notice or by showing that his stand is lawful — the next step will come Wednesday. On that day, Judge Goldsborough “with an advisory jury” will decide Lewis’ guilt or innocence If convicted, the union might ! and Lewis sent to jail.
until he obeys the court.
Tension Mounts in Fields In the mine fields, tension mounted as the idle miner* watched the struggle between their leader and the government. Two men were shot fatally in west virginia in the first major flare up of violence Railroads, steel mills and their customers, public utilities and other tug users of soft coal began battening down for the worst — ? P£?tracted wm k stoppage in the 3.390 government-’ield mines.
A “brownout” to save fuel darkened the capitol dome itself, while republican and democratic congress members joined in demand: for extraordinary meas
ures. Some asked a special session of congress but men close to President Truman said that was unlikely.
