The Ministry of Fuel said weather conditions were “as difficult’’ as at any time in a winter which saw a crippling three-week industrial shut down caused by coal shortage. Half ef Coal Savings Lost The London Daily Herald, organ of the dominant Labor Party, under a headline reading "new crisis threat to industries,” reported the coal production loss in Wales alone at 200,000 terns —half of the amount that Britain saved by shutting fac tories and throwing 2,000,000 or more out of work. Temperatures hovered around freezing today and the Air Minis try forecast colder weather tonight. I In some areas, workmen labored under sunny skies to free highways and rail lines buried under snow drifts 10 to 30 feet deep. In other sections, the work went on amid snow flurries. Virtually all main highway lines had been opened but most branch lines still were out of service and the automobile association reported little improvement in highway con ditions. Temperatures over most of North ern Europe were around freezing. Floods in Hungary, caused by ice jammed rivers, were subsiding, but overflowing streams isolated new areas of Holland and Belgium. Floods covering Eastern France from Strasbourg down the Rhine Valley to Mulhouse began receding. In Ireland the Red Cross ar ranged to drop food and medicine by airplane to isolated mountain villages. Peter McCulagh of Mln eola, Long Island .arriving for his father’s funeral, took longer to get from Dublin to his native town of Plumbridge, Tyrone, by automobile, than he did to fly from New York. The winter’s heaviest blizzard hit Denmark, clogging all transport. Milk deliveries in London were cut nearly in half and hundreds of thousands went without. Slush froze hard in London's streets and traffic crawled. At Cinderford, in Britain’s Forest of Dean, a movie house interrupted its program last night to announce: “Unless we clear the roads to the (nearby railroad) station we shall starve.” Hundreds trooped out of the audience and dug snow all night. Food arrived today. Lincoln Bed Incident Deleted In Revised Truman Citation The eitation by President fat Nell conferring an honorary degree on President Truman at Baylor Uni versity yesterday wa* revised at the last minute to eliminate an assertion that the President's mother, Mrs. Martha Truman, refused to sleep in the Lincoln bed at the White House. White House attaches had ex pressed concern at the wording which was brought to their attention when the President ar- Mr* M*rtk* Trmnuui rived from Mexico City, but there was no explanation for the change, White House Press Secretary Charles G. Ross told reporters to draw their own conclusion about it. At Mrs. Truman's Grandview (Mo.) home, her daughter, Miss Mary J. Truman said her mother “never refused to sleep in any bed at the White House at any time.” Mr. Neff refused to tell reporters why he changed his text, but eaid the reported incident was told him “by a person who heard Mrs. Tru man say” she would not occupy the bed. The first paragraph of the cita tion as distributed to the press, read: "Harry S. Truman, product of Mis souri sun and soil and schools— born amid humble environments— rocked in the cradle of adversity— no silver spoon was yours—you grew to manhood's high noon in the quiet democratic way of life—the South ern way. Engrained in your youth ful blood and bones were the rich and romantic- traditions of the Old South as evidenced by your M-year old mother who declared a few weeks ago that when she visited the Wliite House she would sleep on the floor before she would occupy the bed in which Abraham Lirtcoln slept.” Instead of reading the Lincoln phrase, Mr. Neff paid tribute to Mrs. Truman and told the President flow ers had been sent her yesterday, morning.
