Sixty thousand Chinese Red troops are in far North Korea and as many more are available im- mediately in Manchuria. Hence, the lull wasn't due to Red inability to kco up the pressure that last week forced hasty U. N. withdrawals in northwest Korea. The Chinese, having pulled back this week seemed to be awaiting further orders. Move Cautiously Allied ground forces moved cau- tiously ahead for short distances, continuing consolidations started gradually four days ago. MacArthur's spokesman said the Chinese troops were well trained and disciplined. Neither he nor U. S. Eigtht Army officers made any forecast on the next Chinese move. A U. S. tenth corps spokesman said the Chinese 184th division was in retreat from the big Changjin power dam front in north-central Korea where U. S. Marines had been measuring advances in yards. Small gains were reported by the U. S. Seventh division which was within 24 miles of the Man- churiar border in northeast Ko- rea. Advance Unopposed The ROK Capital division also advanced slowly and was within 100 miles of the Soviet Siberian border on the cast coast. On the northwestern front, Brit- ish Commonwealth troops and ele- ments of the U. S, 2-lth division advanced unopposed as much as three miles north of Kunu and from a line running westward from the Chongchon river front.

Rough Winter The last few years have been nothing like the winter 25 years ago when a half-inch of'snow fell October 9. The following day the temperature was 23 degrees. That year lake was frozen October 27, Wednesday's high here was 48, the low 30, and rainfall measured .33 of an inch. For some areas in the country, according to the Associated Press, it was the coldest weather of the season. At Denver, Colo., and Lan- der, Wyo., nine inches of snow the winter season. But winter's hand was far closer to Winona than that. At International Falls, Minn., the nation's ice box, more than fix inches of snow had fallen. Su- perior, Wis. hid three inches. Storm warnings were posted for the Great Lakes as winds up to 40 miles an hour were forecast. Highway traffic was slowed and airplane flights canceled during the peak of a snowstorm which whipped across the Red River val- ley. Winds reached 50 mile? an hour. Freezing Line There was a freezing line from the Rockies to northern Indiana and the cold Canadian air pushed as far south as central Texas. Winnipeg reported that cold weather was continuing today across the Canadian prairies. Overnight temperatures were near zero or lower in most areas, with a high of 20 above forecast for to- day. Skies were clear and winds light in Alberta, but in Saskatche- wan and Manitoba northerly winds continued, with scattered snow flurries. By noon today the mercury had slipped to 30 degrees from a a. m. reading of 32. To- night will be continued perhaps 22 degrees and windy, the weather forecaster said, with occasional snow flurries. Flights of ducks were moving south, down toward Minnesota and the Mississippi flyway. But they aers in contrast to the 169 they lave in the present Congress. The new Democratic total in the House stood at 234 as against 259 currently. In the House at present then- is one American-Laborite, who was defeated Tuesday. In the new group there will be one independ- ent, who heretofore has been iden- tified politically as a Democrat. Six vacancies also were filled in the election. House Margin It Two hundred eighteen House seats are needed for a mathemati- cal majority. Hence, the Demo- crats probably will have a margin of about 16 seats instead of the present 44, On both sides of the Capitol the Democrats' edge is too narrow for any comfort.

Valdi- mar Bjornson, radio commentator and editorial writer, was elect- ed state treasurer to succeed the Veteran Julius Schmahl who is re- tiring at the end of his present term. As usual Secretary of State Mike Holm piled up the biggest vote. His vote was to for Mrs. A. J. McGuire, the D.-F.L. nominee for secretary of state. Bjornson turned back Paul Ras- Carrier Plane U. N.

The outcome appeared to have thrown an effective roaaplock in front of the Truman "Fair Deal" program. It calls for such things as universal health insurance, pro- duction payments to farmers and repeal of the Taft-Hartley labor law. Bodies of Crash Victims Removed Sutte, Mont. Flashlights guided exhausted men down the steep west slope of the continental divide line last night with the charred remains of the 22 persons who died when an airliner crashed against the mountains in a blizzard. Each of the bodies was encased in a "burial sack. It was earned over the top of the di- vide and down a stretch of rocks, windfalls and brush covered with up to a foot of snow, to a waiting train. Then the bodies were brought here. The Northwest Airlines Martin 2-0-2 early Tuesday smashed into the north wall of Homestake pass at an altitude of about feet. Four crew members and 18 passengers died instantly. the old Farmer-Labor party. Re- turns from precincts gave Bjornson and Rasmussen Leonard Lindquist, who like Bjornson was before the voters for the first time, was elected to the railroad and warehouse commis- sion. He has been serving on the commission after being appointed by Governor Youngdahl to fill a vacancy. Other Republicans re-elect- ed were State Auditor Stafford King, Attorney General Burnquist and Grace Kaercher Davis, clerk of the supreme court. Supreme Court Re-elected to the supreme court ivere Chief Justice Charles Loring and Associate Justices Theodore Christiansen and C. R. Magney. Associate Justice LeRoy Matson was unopposed for re-election. Retaining their seats in Congress were Representatives August An- dresen, Republican, first district; Joseph O'Hara, Republican, sec- ond district; Roy Wier, D.-F.L., third district; Eugene McCarthy, D.-F.L., fourth district: Walter Judd, Republican, fifth district; Fred Marshall, D.-F.L., sixth dis- trict; H. Carl Andersen, Republi- can, seventh district; John Blat- nik, D.-F.L., eighth district; and Harold Hagen, Republican, ninth district. In the closest contest, Wier won over Alfred Lindley. Tokyo Carrier-based Navy pilots today shot down a Russian- made jet fighter and heavily dam- aged two railroad bridges crossing the Yalu river boundary between Korea and Communist Manchuria. The Navy said sky raider dive bombers bit the bridges, located at Sinuiju, in extreme northwest of Korea, with and pound bombs. U. S. B-29 Superfprts plastered Sinuiju yesterday with incendiary and demolition bombs. The Navy pilots had strict orders not to violate the Manchurian frontier and to confine their at- tacks entirely to the southern (Korean) half of the bridge. All planes returned safely to the carrier Philippine Sea, flagship of Task Force 77. They encountered flak of varying intensity and accuracy. Navy Panther jets, _flying pro- tective cover, intercepted four Rus- sian-made MIG-15 jet fighters. By Tom Ochiltree Lake United States today pressed without delay its charges of Chinese Communist intervention in Korea despite the apparent inclination of some other members of the security council to proceed slowly with the case. A Driving Nine-Inch Snowfall made a mockery of Colorado's Indian summer with its record warm weather. It created one of the worst traffic jams in Denver history as it iced streets and drifted slalled and parked autos.

Ground troops searched for one enemy pilot who parachuted. The Yaks were knocked out by four F-80 jets from the 49th fight- er-bomber group. Lieutenant James W. Smith of New Albany, Ind., shot down one. The other fell under an attack by Lieutenant Colonel John Duganne of Eau Claire, Wis., the flight leader, and Lieutenant John B. Doust of Berkeley, Calif. 1 Fatally Injured In Neenah Crash Neenah, Wis. A man and a child were injured fatally Wed- nesday when two cars collided in the rain at a highway intersection. Teh victims were Arthur Lenz, 55, of rural Oshkosh, driver of one of the cars, and four-year-old Gene Paulson, who was with bis mother, Mrs. Sylvia Paulson, 21, rural Neenah, in the other auto. The boy was thrown through the wind- shield. Mrs. Paulson suffered cuts and bruises and possible internal in- juries but was reported in favor- able condition today at a hospital here.

Eisenhower Set For Assignment To European Job Fort Worth, Texas Gen- eral Dwight D. Eisenhower says .sCCU. JiUniJ ..nuu. _ An American source said the U. S. delegation is making a final check with Washington on the wording of its resolution and might bring the document into the U. N. The resolution is understood to demand the withdrawal of alien forces Chinese Communists fighting in support of the North Ko- rean Reds and to call on all govern- ments to refrain from assisting the North Koreans. Next Meeting Friday The security council's next sched- uled meeting is for Friday after- noon on the Palestine case. The United States delegation could call for a meeting before that on the Korean issue, possibly Friday morning. In any event, the American source said, the United States does not intend to let the matter lie dormant for any length of time while the council awaits the arrival of Chinese Communist representa- tives to answer the charges lev- eled against the Peiping regime by i General MacArthur. The United States, the informant explained, is ready to proceed whether or not the Chinese Reds have arrived at Lake Success. Warren R. Austin, chief Ameri- can delegate, told the council yes- terday that the Chinese Commu- nists had recklessly thrown regular troops against the United Nations forces commanded by MacArthur. This action, Austin said, raised the danger "that the present conflict may not be limit- ed to the Korean area. Equipment Workers Picket Key Exchanges Long Distance Service Curtailed At Minneapolis New York Key equipment workers struck the vast Bell Tele- phone system today, threatening a coast-to-coast tieup that could crip- ple the nation's communication system. The walkout began officially at dawn on the East coast and spread gradually across the country as the 6 a.m., local time, strike dead- ine came and went. (The nation-wide telephone strike has not affected service in Witiono. Harold B. Law, Northweslem Bell manager here, said this morning tliat business was proceeding as usual through the WHIOTMI telephone office.) The strikers are members of the C.I.O. Communications Workers of America. They threw up picket lines around telephone exchanges and company warehouses a ma- neuver designed to keep nearly fellow members of their union, including telephone opera- tors, away from work. The union has instructed its entire member- ship to respect the picket lines. Within minutes after the starf of the walkout pickets deploy- ed around phone company buildings in New York, Wash- ington, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Moines, City, Minneapolis and Okla- homa City. In New York city, some long distance operators reported for work at 7 a. m. (E.S.T.) but re- fused to cross the equipment work- ers' picket lines. In Akron, Ohio, pickets blocked.two entrances to the telephone building but some employes were escorted through the lines by police.

'I may possibly be in Europe long distance calls were being ac- cepted by the company on an "emergency basis" only.

But he said he had "no positive word" concerning any future duties. The general said: "There has been considerable speculation in the papers about the job I may be taking over there. I can only repeat what I have said before, I'm a soldier and I'll serve wher- ever I am asked to serve.1' The Columbia university presi- dent, starting a four-day tour of Texas, arrived from Chicago about 1 p. m. to visit old friends here Publisher Amon Carter and Oil- man Sid Richardson. Newsmen asked a press confer- ence and obtained one aboard Eisenhower's private car. In his news conference here the general sidestepped discussion of Tuesday's general election. Nina Warren No Worse In Fight Against Polio Sicramento, Calif. Warren, the golden' haired Nina and sunshine dispositioned daughter of California's only three-time gov- ernor, appeared today to be beat- ing her polio affliction. The courageous 17-year-old youngest daughter of Governor and Mrs. Earl Warren responded remarkably. She is paralyzed from the hips down. She was hospitalized Tuesday (election day) morning. That brought the Warrens racing here in tears and canceled his plans for a heavy election night pro- gram in San Francisco. It turned his day of greatest political triumph into his saddest. Four specialists, including the best polio experts in California, reported: temperature dropped Wednesday in a heartening manner and are pleased. There been no extension of trouble and she is radiating her usual happy disposition." Yesterday, Nina was given serum flown from Chicago. The serum, is expected to arrest spread of the disease but does not cure. Warren canceled all political made no new ones. He secluded himself with bis daugh- ter, or in his home. But spunky, cheerful "Honey Bear" to her family and to cheer her family. She expressed amazed pleasure that thousands of well wishers sent notes of encouragement and flow- ers. She presumably contracted polio at McClatchy High school, where only Friday night she was a bouncing cheer leader. The school has had five cases of polio in two months. Three other Warren children who were exposed to the polio germ through their sister's affliction are in semi-isolation at the governor's mansion. They are Earl, Jr., and Dorothy, students at the Univer- sity of California college of agri- culture at Davis, and Bobby, a student at McClatchy High. coast. Joseph A. Beirne, president of the C.I.O. Communications Work- ers of America said the strike would make long-distance telephone service "almost impos- sible." Manually-operated service would be disrupted in most of the nation, he claimed. But dial telephone service probably would continue "at least until the equipment breaks he added. It was expected that, as in past phone strikes, supervisory em- ployes would do their best to keep the manual service operating. The dispute is between the C.W.A. and the Western Electric Company manufacturing and installing subsidiary of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company. Wages, lengln of contracfs and retroactivity arc the key issues. The union is seeking benefits for equipment installers, warehouse- men and factory workers.- Wisconsin Delays Wisconsin's 135-odd Western Electric Company employes struck today in accordance with a na- tion-wide walkout, but state tele- phone service won't be affected un- til Monday at least The Wisconsin strikers agreed to postpone setting up picket lines un- til Monday under an order from their national union applying to Wisconsin and 14 other states. The order was issued because units of the Communications Workers of America in the 15 states currently are in convention and union lead- ers are not on the scene.
