Millions crowded the roads going home on the last day of the weekend, many running into unfavorable weather conditions posed by widespread rain in the central section of the country, and some snow and freezing in the northern states. The National Safety Council reports that 49,000 persons died in traffic accidents last year.

Few shots were fired on the ground elsewhere in the war. There was no report on the effectiveness of the B52 strike. A U.S. spokesman said the North Vietnamese mortar attack, 18 mile? from the Plei Djereng Green Beret camp, caused no U.S. casualties. He said all 25 enemy rounds fell outside the American perimeter. Earlier in the day Premier Nguyen Cao Ky visited the Plei Djereng Special Forces camp to decorate Maj. Gen. Arthur S. Collins, the 4th Division commander; Brig. Gen. David O. Byars, assistant commander; and 30 other U.S. officers. The U. S. military command reported only three small skirmishes in various sectors and said 18 Viet Cong were killed. The U.S. Navy had a busy day Sunday, reporting that 7lh Fleet destroyers and rocket ships/ fired more than 1,300 five-inch shells and rockets at targets in South Viet Nam. The targets included supply routes, storage areas and fortified positions, the Navy said. There was still no word from the U.S. and South Vietnamese commands whether they would order a truce at Christmas and New Year's. The Viet Cong announced Saturday it would stop fighting for 48 hours on the Christmas weekend and for 48 hours over the New Year. Continued monsoon rains and generally bad weather over North Viet Nam sharply reduced U.S. air raids again Sunday, limiting pilots to 32 missions.

On the NBC program "Meet the Press," Heller said Sunday a tax increase should be coupled with an easing of interest rates. He said this would not bring on a recession. Heller, now a University of Minnesota economics professor, based his tax increase advocacy on a $20-billion increase in government spending, 4 to 5 per cent boost in plant spending and an increase in war costs of $10 billion to $12 billion.

Saturday night she took second runnerup honors and a special youth fitness trophy in the Pennsylvania Junior Miss Pageant at Reading. U. S. Highway Cutback Won't Hurt Shortway A cutback in federal funds' for interstate highway c'onstructiort will not affect construction of Interstate Route 80 (the Keystone Shortway), a spokesman for the State Highway Department at Harrisburg told The Progress this morning. The spokesman said the Short-way, like some other key highway projects under way in Pennsylvania, won't be cut short, since funds for its construction have already been approved., He did however say that the Department will review all of its*upcoming projects to determine what effect the federal cutback 1 may have on future projects. The cutback in this year's federal highway program from $4 billion to $3.3 billion is part of President Johnson's effort to cut nondefense spending as much as possible without harming essential programs. It will be up to the- states themselves to decide where the actual cutbacks are to be made. The U. S.
