Grand Jury Report Tells Dope Peril A warning that juvenile crime and narcotics violations are increasing alarmingly was issued today in the final re- port of the 1959 Los An- geles County Grand Jury. Jurors, headed by Foreman Charles F. Van De Water of Long Beach, noted that teen- age crimes are rising put of proportion to the population and that much of its time was devoted to hear- ing narcotics cases. Indictments were returned by the jurors against 256 al- leged dope peddlers and users. IN AN EFFORT to alleviate the teenage violation prob- lem, the 1959 panel said it would urge the 1960 Grand to encourage public schools to make increased use of counseling and guid ance services to youngsters. In addition to its actions against narcotics violators, the jurors returned indict- ments in 28 other criminal cases, including 6 for conspir- acy, 3 for grand theft, 2 for abortion, 2 for murder and 2 for violating the corporate se- curities code. Indictments were refused in only five cases. IN ONE OF its recommen- dations, the jury said more care should be taken in re- quiring claimants against an estate to prove their identity and in the substantiation of their claims. Earlier this year, Chief Pub- lic Administrator Phil Adkins was arrested along with Long Beach Police Sgt. Phil Lind- say and Tom Newton, owner of a local detective agency, for looting unclaimed estates by filing fictitious claims.

SEASON'S FROSTING Eight-year-old Fred .Zakar of Sun Valley, Calif., tries a taste of the white stuff he found on pine branches as he visited at snowy Kratka Ridge in the Angeles National Forest. Four to 12 inches of snow covered Snowstorm Clogs East By Associated Press Winter blew into the North- east today with a fierce snow- storm which deposited as much as 10 inches before sun- burst through the overcast around 9 a.m. Before the let-up, however, a constant downfall through the night piled up huge drifts to make job-going tough for millions over a wide area. Bus and automobile traffic were hardest hit. Streets and secondary highways in and around major cities of the New York metropolitan re- gion were all but impassable until snowplow crews could get to them. SPEEDS ALSO had to be cut sharply on parkways and turnpikes. Many commuter buses were trapped by jams of cars halted by icy surfaces and piles of snow. Trains had minor difficulties but much air traffic into and out of New York was snagged. The U.S. Weather Bureau said conditions were right for more snow before Christmas. Heavy winds had whipped the snowflakes across a re- gion stretching from the Great Lakes east through Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and parts of New Eng land. The Atlantic Coast of New Jersey and New York got the worst of it. The storm covered virtually all of Pennsylvania. Five inches were reported in the western part of rhe state. Weather Partly cloudy with a 60 per cent probability of rain tonight and Wed- nesday morning. A 60 per cent probability of showers Wednesday aft- ernoon. Maximum tem- perature by noon today: 60.

Quake Shakes Area of Eureka EUREKA Just five years after a damaging earth quake in Eureka, another temblor jolted this Northern California area Monday. This time there was no damage.

A month earlier, prices were 25.5 per cent above the jase period. It was the sixth time in seven months that prices, as measured by the Labor De- partment's consumer price index, advanced to a new peak. The November rise was less marked than in September and October, and Ewan Clague, commissioner of labor statistics, said he looks for relative price stability until next spring. A CONTINUED down- :rend in food prices helped check the November rise in :he index. The big factors on the upside were increases in charges for services and for durable goods, including new autos. The November rise 'n the index will bring pay increases to about workers who get cost-of-living in- creases under union con- tracts. Factors affecting the shift in buying power included the return of steelworkers to their jobs, which boosted average hourly earnings, and a drop in the factory work week because of layoffs by makers of autos and other goods affected by a shortage of steel.
