The firing started late last night in the Redlands and Covi- na districts where were expected to dip to 26. Oth- er indicated cold spots included San Fernando and San Gabriel valley all the way from Canoga park and Pacoima to Azusa and Cuca- monga. Elsewhere Southern Call- "ornians donned overcoats, wor- ried about their automobile ra- diators and prepared for an- other smudge blackout. The mercury in Los Angelef was expected again to drop to yesterday's low of 36. The low- est recorded in Southern Cali- fornia was 13 below at Big Bear dam high in the San Bernardi- no mountains.

The fabulously Russians Crippling Traffic Into Berlin By Daniel de Luce Berlin (JP) Gloomy Allied officials said today they saw little chance of an early end to the Soviet "creeping blockade" against Berlin's highway traffic with western Germany. Two formal protests by the Allied commandants within a week have failed to protect the city's truck commerce from drastic restrictions by Russian frontier guards. A jam-up of 400 trucks at Helna- stedt main Soviet checkpoint on the east-west autobahn today was the worst since last Sunday. Some cargoes were stalled as much as 40 hours by the Russian slow- down, enforced equally against trucks attempting to enter or to leave the east zone.
