This morning, he flashed the tenders for the Republican nom- ination in 1952. But the really central fact about this election is something at once bigger and deeper. In plain langu- age, the result will surely subject the American constitutional and party system to the severest test in history, excepting the test by blood and fire in 1860. This is tound to be so, since the result has given immense new power and authority to the conservative, isolationist Re- publican group headed by Sen- ator Taft. Among the Senator's world-minded friends, who are many, it is fashionable to pre- tend that he is not really an isolationist. But in fact the rec- ord shows that he has voted either to cripple or to kill out- right almost every great meas- ure of defense and foreign pol- icy designed to contain Soviet imperialism. Most recently and significantly, he overjoyed the "Daily Worker" by attack- ing the Atlantic Pact and mil- itary nid for our Allies as "pro- and voted against both. Other members of the Taft group, like Capchart of Indiana and Colonel Robert R. McCor- noticed that two of the three were wearing overalls and jackets and that one was about five feet, eight and one-half inches tall. In Checks Of the total amount taken, about was in checks cashed at the tavern during the evening. The remainder was in bills of and denominations and a bill. Chief Bingold stated this morn- ing that the persons responsible for the robbery might throw sway the billfold. He asked that if the bill- fold is found police be notified im- mediately. Controls Delayed Until Spring Washington Secretary of Commerce Sawyer, forecasting that the full impact of rearmament will hit his industry "next spring or Federal mediators sought anew to settle the dispute which has idl- ed many thousands of workers, in- cluding operators, and disrupted service in some areas. In a side angle of the national walkout, telephone employes in Michigan put their local strike on a "hit-and-run" basis. (At Minneapolis, a union leader, A. W. Stein, said last night picket lines will be on hand in Duluth, Rochester, Manfcato and Winona Monday. The strikers, numbering fewer than 300 in the state, are mem- bers of local 62, C.I.O. Com- munications workers.) There was no official indication that this strategy would be adopt- ed in the coast-to-coast walkout. Hit-Run Move The "hit-and-run" move in Mich- igan was disclosed early today in Detroit by the state strike leader, Walter Schaar, president of divi- sion 15 of the C.I.O.

The service disruptions occurred as many of the other CWA members in the Bell telephone ardino Several Houses On Outskirts of City Damaged More Chinese Troops Moving Into Korea Seoul Allied air power pounded today at Chinese Com- munist forces pulling back into far North Korea's wooded moun- tains and smashed again at supply lines at the Yalu river.

Even the loyalty of Secretary of State Dean G. Acheson has been viciously im- pusned.

Most Lines in Use Dial telephone service was only minutely affected by the coast-to- coast strike, which began yester- day at 6 a.m. local time. Long distance calls and manually operr ated service were disrupted in some areas. The strikers picketed exchanges and other telephone buildings in many cities, and thousands of oth- er employes honored the lines. Many supervisory employes took over vacant posts. The A.T.

'OPERATION HOMEFOLK' Guard Unit to Entertain Families Camp Atterbury, Ind. "Operation Homefolk" gets un- der way tonight and by tomor- row noon will be battling home- sickness. The commanders are confi- dent of complete victory- "Operations Homefolk" will bring 450 relatives and sweet- hearts from Scranton. Pa., to to Camp Atterbury to visit the 109th infantry regiment, Penn- sylvania National Guard, now in federal service. Scranton is the hometown of the 109th, which started active duty here last September. The Scranton folk will travel the 850 miles to Indianapolis overnight by special train and will be taken by bus to Camp Atterbury, 40 miles away, to start their two-day visit Homesickness of the young guardsmen is not the only thing the project, dubbed "Operation Homefolk" by the 109th, hopes to overcome. "We hope having the home- folk here will help dispel any misunderstanding the parents may have about their boys." said Colonel Fred R. Evans, 109th commanding officer. "These people back home are our inspiration and heart in these unsettled he add- ed. The operation had its begin- ning in a conversation between the colonel and a travel agent friend in Scranton. The colonel said he wished the homefolk could rime out to see the outfit. "Why said the travel agent, and the trip was arranged. The travelers will pay S38 for the round trip and rooms Sat- urday night in Indianapolis ho- tels. The 109th is going all out to make the homefolk welcome and to entertain them. There'll be a formal guard mount, variety shows, a foot- ball game, glee club concerts and special church services. The visitors are invited to chow at all times. Even the officers'- club will be closed and be used as a bus station. "We want these homefolk to sec everything and see bow their boys are living and to make any complaints or sug- said Colonel Evans. "We even hope the wives and mothers look under the he added. The United States will pre- vent such a development. Porter McKeever, spokesman for the American delegation, told report- ers last night the council "must move ahead" and cat allow the Chi- nese Communists to so time their arrival at Lake Success as to im- pede the council's work. He added: "The clear duty of the council is to do everything it can as rap- idly as it can to prevent the con- flict in Korea from spreading." U. S. HAS Backing Informants said Britain, France, and Ecuador had the United States in sponsorship of a Korean i resolution to be put before the council. The proposal included these main points: 1. A demand for withdrawal of alien forces Chinese Com- munists fighting beside the North Korean Reds. 2. A call on all nations to re- frain from helping the North Koreans. 3. A request for the United Nations' Korean committee to consider urgently all questions connected with the North Kore- an frontier. The third point is designed to take the wind out of any Chinese Red claims that they intervened in Korea because they feared, invasion of Manchuria. Chinese Communist units took up the fight when Mac- Arthur's troops approached the border hydroelectric system that serves Manchuria as well as Ko- rea. Observers believe final action on the resolution probably will not be taken until the Chinese Reds have had a chance to appear. Rennebohm Suggests Thanksgiving Prayer Madison, Wis.

Firemen said it was almost out after a six-hour fight. At one point, police reported hundreds of homes burning, while pajama clad residents many of them women and children play- ed garden hoses on roofs. But as dawn came, only one home on a hilltop appeared a complete A half-dozen others were badly damaged and spot burns and char- red paint showed on many more. A two-mile strip several blocks I wide in places, but largely brush- land near the foothills, was black- ened. The fire department reported 14 men injured as a result of the flames and the high winds. Most of them suffered facial cuts and eye injuries from flying debris and j cinders. All were given emergency treat- ment, and none of the injuries was described as serious. So fierce was the wind that the paint was blasted off one U. S. Forest Service truck, "Sometimes you couldn't even see the fire, the dust got so one fireman related. And another observed: "I hate to think what would have happened if this thing had got away from us. The whole town might have gone up." The sand blew in great clouds through narrow Cajon pass, which leads through the San Bernardino mountains to the Mojave desert. Police estimated that nearly 300 persons were evacuated from the region? and given refuge in a school. Most of them had time to don street clothes, although a few could be seen in bathrobes. Police commandeered city buses to evacuate the residents. Every- body was grimy with soot and sand. It got in your eyes, and you could feel the grit on your teeth.

In a second strike Thursday car- rier planes erased a rail- way bridge crossing the Yalu river at Manpojin, 125 miles northeast of Sinuiju.
