Temperatures were below zero from Washington State to Wisconsin and south to Nebraska. Cold-wave warnings were in effect for a 15-state area from Texas to Ohio to Delaware. Rain fell along a band from the Texas coast to New England. Freezing rain and snow extended from central Texas through Kentucky to the eastern Great Lakes. In Montana, ranchers estimated livestock losses in the thousands of dollars and the National Guard helped clear snow-dogged roads. A herd of 1.000 sheep wandering aimlessly in a blizzard crashed through the ice of a lake south of Miles City, Mont. Montana officials said 250.000 calves and 320,000 sheep suffered through the snow and cold in eight disaster-area counties. December cold records toppled Thursday, with 38-below-zero marks in Butte and Helena. It was 51 below in West Yellowstone, Mont. Temperatures began a slow rise in Washington State, which has experienced one of its worst prewinter cold spells in history’.

See DOZEN, Page 15 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Higher salaries for judges was included in legislation finally adopted Thursday in a special session of the legislature. Under the bill, Ohio Supreme Court judges will have their $20,000 annual salaries boosted to $24,000 and the chief justice will go from $22,000 to $24,500. The state’s share of yearly salaries for common pleas and probate judges was raised from $7,000 to $9,000. The county share of those salaries is based on population. Present law provides for those judges to receive additional compensation of 12 cents per capita for the first 35,-000 population and six cents per capita for all over 35,000. Minimum additional pay, fixed at $2,000, and the maximum $10,000 were unchanged. Under the increases common pleas and probate judges will draw further compensation this way: $500 for judges in counties with not more than 85,000 population; $1,000 in counties with population between 85,000 and 115,000, and $1,500 in counties See INCREASE, Page 15 By ROBERT E. MILLER COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Majority Republicans have shoved through their congressional redistricting plan in a whirlwind of activity that all but tied the ribbon on the lame duck special session of the Ohio Legislature. Final legislative action came Thursday night in the Ohio Senate by a vote of 18-13. All Democratic senators opposed the plan which will revise Ohio’s present 23 districts and add a 24th. The Senate vote came about an hour after the House accepted the same conference committee report 72-42. Republicans in the lower chamber mustered three votes more than the required majority of 69. Leader of the special session which began Nov. 9 ordered a recess until Dec. 29 when the lawmakers will return for a clean up session. A few minor bills were left hanging, including two in conference committees. Democrats fought the redistricting plan on the charge that the GOP majorities—both of which will be reduced at the regular session next month — shaped it to favor Republican candidates. When the 106th General Assembly convenes Jan. 4, the Republican House margin will be cut from 86-42 to 75-62. Senators will be equally divided (16-16) between Democrats and Republicans. The special session called by GOF Gov. James A. Rhodes took up redistricting and legislative reapportionment— passed earlier — following representation decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court. They ordered representation of state legislatures and Congress on the basis of areas of virtually equal population. The legislative reapportionment proposal which also drew the fire of Democrats will be placed before the voters next May in the form of a Constitutional amendment. Redistricting was handled as a bill and will become effective under normal statutory enactment procedures. Democrats who opposed the redistricting plan the strongest See FINALIZED, Page 2 I The cause of the fire was not known immediately. Nurse’s aide Myrtle Donahue, taken with 13 patients to Major Hospital in nearby Shelbyville, refused treatment for smoke inhalation until she had told nurses which were diabetics or needed special treatment. “None of them wanted to come out,” said Paul Whittington, a volunteer fireman. “It was just too cold.” He said one elderly woman escaped from a front door in her night clothes, walked around the building and re-en tered through a back door. Firemen found her in the kitchen. She was among the survivors. Dr. Lucian Arata, Shelby County coroner, said ll bodies had been recovered from the ruins and one man died en route to a hospital after he was found lying unconscious inside the front door. The coroner said five of the dead, all women, were found in the concrete block addition. Others died in their beds. Little was left of the structure but the walls. A Christmas See NURSING HOME, Page 2 By JAMES R. POLK FOUNTAINTOWN, Ind. (AP) —Fire roared through a nursing home in bitter cold today in this central Indiana communi-| ty, taking a heavy, toll among the aged patients. Sixteen bodies were removed from the smoldering ruins of the two-story wooden and con-crete-block structure. Two rescued inmates died and two were missing. Heroic work of three attendants at the McGraw Nursing Home saved 15 patients, one of ; them burned critically. KENT, Ohio (AP)-A loaded gasoline tanker truck and a car plunged 35 feet into the ice-covered Cuyahoga River today after an old bridge with a wooden floor collapsed. The driver of the car was killed. The dead man was identified as Shockly Graham of Stow, a minister. The truck driver went down with the vehicle but escaped from his water-submerged cab. Two high school pupils walking across the bridge at the time fell through the section of the bridge that collapsed. There was no threat of an explosion. A policeman using ropes rescued the students. Both were hospitalized and reported in fair condition. The truck driver, Harry Shuster, 40, of Kent, was not believed seriously hurt and was undergoing further examination at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Kent. The students who surved the fall were Ronald Swiger, 16, of Streetsboro, and Donald Porter, 16, of Kent. Don Lemons, Kent patrolman, said it appeared one-third of the asphalt - covered bridge floor which is on steel supports, collapsed under the weight of the tanker. The truck and a car close behind were both westbound on the span that was built 80 to 90 years ago. Two-lane bridge is about 200 feet long. It has a maximum 7-ton weight limit. Some 4,000 residents in the west end of Kent were without water for a half hour when a six-inch main attached to the side of the bridge was carried down with the truck.
