York Yankees came from behind today to win the second World Series game from the Brooklyn 4-2. The Yanks lead the scries 2-0. Earlier the New York Yankees had heard encouraging! reports that Allie Reynolds was available for duty. Red Patterson, Yanks' publicity chief, said Reynolds' back injury was "not as serious" as originally thought. Word from the Dodger camp was that catcher Roy Campanella's right hand, injured Wednesday when hit by a Reynolds pitch, had been "frozen" for today's game. Shortstop Pee Wee Reese reported a stiff back, and Carl Furillo said his injured left hand showed no re- action to the opening game. Both managers Casey Stengel of the Yankees and Chuck Dressen of the Dodgers announced Friday's starting pitchers before the second game. Stengel will use righthan- der Vic Raschi (13-6) and Dressen plans to come back with Carl Ers- kine his righthanded ace who was yanked Wednesday after allowing four runs in the first in- ning.

Roe struck ike Invokes T-H Law in Dock Strike WASHINGTON Wl President Eisenhower today invoked the Taft-Hartley Law in a move to halt the paralyzing East Coast dock strike. He declared the strike imperils the nation's welfare and appointed a three-man board of inquiry head- ed by David L. Cole, former di- rector of the Federal Conciliation and Mediation Service.

Democrats Rap Manufacturers' Sales Tax Plan WASHINGTON con- gressional Democrats opened fire today any Eisenhower ad- ministration proposal for a nation- al sales or excise tax at the manufacturers' level. In the wake of President Eisen- hower's news conference yester- day, they decried such a tax, using adjectives like "dangerous" and "burdensome" and "discrimina- tory." They said the man in the street probably would find himself harder hit by a manufacturer-level tax than by a retail-level tax. A tax on sales at the factory, they argued, would pyramid prices on consumer goods. The President, obviously aiming a squelch at speculation about a retail sales tax, took the unusual step of authorizing some of his news conference remarks for di- rect quotation. "For the President said, "I think I personally have put my adverse conclusions on such a tax I so far as the federal government 'is concerned. "The Treasury Department has made a study, however, and they find that all of the logic in the situ- ation is that this is a field that be- r One Of The Mothers who is going to Korea to match mother love against the influence of Communism is pictured above with her husband and daughter.

But Democratic objections arose to his news conference replies, not authorized for direct quotation, in which he declined to rule out a tax at the manufacturers' level. Eisenhower's reply that he did not eliminate anything, and that the Treasury is considering how to reassert excise taxes, seemed cer- tain to stir even more speculation about'a possible administration bid for a manufacturers' tax. Indications were that next year all 435 House seats and one third of the 96 Senate seats are at stake in the congressional elec- Quiet as Grave At Sea Bottom, Piccard Says ISLAND OF PONZA, Italy Wl What's it like nearly two miles deep in the sea?

There is little if any difference between an excise called a "luxury as on jewel- ry or a sales tax.

But a Senate judiciary subcommittee, headed by Sen. Langer already is geared to consider the Warren nomination informally and report to the full committee.

Pietsch, city treas- urer since 1931, was arrested at 2 p.m. today. Richard A. Golling, state public examiner, said that Pietsch was arrested on a charge involving "the unlaw- ful taking of money." He and County Attorney W. Kenneth Nissen went into an immediate confer- ence to prepare a complaint. Golling, who said he would sign the' complaint, said that "parking meter receipts" would be involved, Nissen said that the specific amount mentioned in the complaint will be and that it will be charged that Pietsch took that amount this morning. Said Pietsch as h.2 and Sheriff George Fort left his office, "I just didn't do it. That's all." Golling said that the treasurer has been under surveillance by local officials for six weeks and more recently by the public exam- iner. He said his department was asked to do so on Sept. 14 by City Attorney Harold Streater and Council President William P. Theurer.

"However, he did agree to allow our examiners to enter his own vault to determine whether his statements to me were true. "This powder placed by Mr. Reiter is an invisible powder but shows up as a definite color when exposed to ultraviolet light. Mr. Reiter had such light with him and he pointed it on the floor and the color of the powder became visible, revealing tracks from the clerk's vault to the treasurer's vault and also marks on the floor of the treasurer's vault, leading to compartments on the left side of the vault. There was also a touch of coloring on the handle of the compartment. "When that was opened, there was found in the rear of the com- partment a bag containing nickels.

The treasurer has his own vault. Said Golling: "The observations of the past few weeks indicated that someone was going into (he clerk's vault and removing nickels from bags containing the parking meter col- lections. This was ascertained from a count of the nickels known to have been placed in the bags and from a count of the nickels after Mr. Pietsch was suspected of entering the vault on specific known occasions. "Last night fin money that was placed in these bags was again counted and Charles Reiter of the Criminal Apiirt-hension Bureau placed an Ir.viVi'ole powder on the bags and on the floor near the bags. this ultraviolet light. At least 10 of the nickels found in the treas- urer's vault showed this light. "The coloring of the powder al- so showed up on his hand."

Eisenhower told a White House news conference yesterday that ever since "my good Chief Justice Fred M. Vinson, died of a heart attack Sept. 8, he had been searching for a successor. In a rare gesture, the President permitted his remarks to be quoted directly: "I certainly wanted a man whose reputation for integrity, honesty, middle of the road philosophy, experience in government, experi- ence in the law, were all such as to convince the United States that here was a man who had no ends to serve except the United States "To my mind he is a man who will make a great chief justice, and so I selected him." In Sacramento, Calif., the 62-year- old nominee announced he was ac- cepting the appointment, would re- sign as governor as of midnight Sunday and be on hand here Mon- dsy to take the oath of office. Preparing to turn over the gov- ernorship to Lt. Gov. Goodwin J. Knight, Warren said: "To be a member of this high court, and as such an interpreter and defender of the Constitution for all the people of the United States is the greatest obligation that could be assumed by any lawyer. him when the recorder and his assisiant were absent from his of- ficr ;-s was customary for them to do.

Meanwhile, he said on basis of the evidence he was assuming it was a triple murder and a suicide.

Mrs. Barringer, shot in the back, was found in living quartsrs back of the store. A trail of blood halfway down- stairs indicated Sharon had mads a futile effort to flee. Her body, shot through the head, was found at the bottom of the steps. Mrs. Supalo, also shot in the bead, was found in an upstairs closet where she apparently had tried to hide.
