The 480,000 United Mines Workers—already hard hit finan cially by three previous 1949 walkouts—promptly began to fill the mines at 12:01 a.m. Under a new three - day week schedule ordered by their union chief, John L. Lewis. The big 7 a.m. shifts reported in strength in Western Pennsyl vania s rich bituminous regions. There were no reports of a continuation of last week’s over night strike. Guaranteed Christmas. In the nine days before Christ mas, each can earn about $139.50. That’s based on their average daily wages of $15.50. That, with some back pay they have coming for work done before last week, means they’ll enjoy Christmas. Even if some diggers are broke or short of money, com pany stores guarantee they can buy food and toys for Christmas. Though the miners are happy over prospects of working, most of them are anxious to get back on a five-day week. It's almost certain Mr. Lewis won't order such a week until he has finally reached a contract with industry. And top operators show no indi cation of giving in. Operators Won t Budge. Top operators haven't budged since Mr. Lewis’ contract ran out last June 30. They maintain they can't afford to increase wages. And they want Mr. Lewis to tight en up the welfare and pension fund which has been financed en tirely by the 20-cent-a-ton royal ties the operators pay for all coal mined. The only report of a break in the stalemate has come from a small group of small Kentucky operators. They are truck mine operators who employ only about 800 diggers. It is reported the Kentuckians are considering signing a contract with Mr. Lewis this week. If they do, they’ll go on a five-day week. The truck operators insist they ha^e.to work a full week to ^biyajp even. Calls for 95-cent Increase. Other mine owners reported the contract being considered by the Kentucky group calls for a 95-cent daily pay boost, bringing the diggers' base rate to an even $15 And the 20-cent royalty pay ments reportedly would be upped to 35 cents. Top industry spokesmen mini mized the significance of the “Kentucky Plan.” ‘Tt’s practically a shotgun wed ding with a small group of smaller type operators,” said Joseph E. (See COAL, Page A-4.)

Czechs Bishops Offer Renewed Defiance of Church Control Laws Government Is Warned Of Religious Fight if Stand Is Not Modified By the Associated Press PRAGUE, Dec. 5.—Czechoslo vakia's Roman Catholic bishops have expressed new defiance of the Communist government's church control laws. They warned a religious fight may result if the government does not modify its stand. The bishops announced yester day they could not submit to laws which they asserted violate the laws of God and destroy religious freedom. In a 2,200-word letter to the government, dated November 17 and made public yesterday, the bishops asked the Communist re gime to reconsider the new church control law of November 1 and decrees issued under it, “and to revise them so as to be in agree ment with the constitution of the church.” Responsibility for Fight. The bishops said the govern ment would be responsible for any “religious fight” that might arise. Declaring that Prime Minister Antonin Zapotocky had bluntly rejected all requests for church law revisions with “undisguised threats,” the bishops said: “* * • In this country of the holy martyrs * * * there are enough people and priests who are willing, together with their bishops, to sacrifice everything for the right of God, the right of the church and for a true free dom in religious life.” Czechoslovakia's population of 13,000,000 includes 9,000,000 Cath olics. The church control law, adopted by Parliament October 14 over strenuous Catholic objec tions, applies to all denominations. The new law gives the govern ment final power over appoint ment of priests, administration of churches and religious education. Constitution Is Cited. The request for revision of the law governing the church cited paragraph 17 of the Czech con stitution, which the bishops said stated: “Every one shall be free to carry out the acts in connection with any religious denomination.” The letter did not prescribe a specific course of action by priests or those in lesser positions. On November 24 the bishops pub lished a letter to Czechoslovakia’s priests ordering them not to ac cept government orders "which are against God’s law.” The let ter said priests who “betray Christ in this most critical time” would be deprived of their church rights, including the right of hearing confessions. Earlier, the bishops directed priests to accept state salaries and take a loyalty oath, but to add a (See PRAGUE, Page A-4.) Mayor O'Dwyer Sleeps Through Hospital Fire ly tht Associated Press NEW YORK, Dec. 5.—Mayor William O’Dwyer, a patient at Bellevue Hospital, slept comfort ably last night through a fire in a small kitchen adjoihing his suite, but the smoky blaze started a lot of excitement. Mayor O’Dwyer is under treat ment for exhaustion, heart strain and a respiratory infection. As the Mayor’s dinner was be ing prepared, a dish cloth left near an electric grill caught fire. Some one in the corridor saw smoke come out of the transom. He called the hospital switch board, where the operator smashed the glass panel of a fire alarm box. During that time the Mayor's bodyguard, Detective Joseph Boyle, had snuffed out the smoul dering dish cloth. But smashing the alarm brought the following: A deputy Are chief, the chief of the 6th Fire Battalion, 20 fire men with helmets, rubber coats and boots, all armed with axes, hooks and extinguishers, and a police detail. Chinese Officials Use Chennaulf's Planes To Leave New Capital Chengtu Being Evacuated As Communists Push On From Chungking CHIANG KAI-SHEK says in ex clusive interview Nationalists will fight on at any cost. Page A-18 fty the Associated Press HONG KONG, Dec. 5.—Evacu ation of the new Chinese Nation alist capital at Chengtu, 170 miles northwest of Red-Occupied Chung king. apparently began today. A special dispatch to the news paper Sing Tao Man Po said gov ernment officials assembled at the Chengtu Airport at 2 a.m. (Cheng tu time) for air transport to Formosa, island fortress 100 miles off the south central China coast. Planes belonging to retired United States Maj. Gen. Claire Chennault have been chartered by the Nationalist government for the airlift, the report said. Communist troops of Gen. Liu Pd-cheng rolled on toward Cheng tu after taking Chungking, the; provisional capital only last Wed nesday. Chengtu became the Na- j tionalist capital then. Reds Make Gains. Reports to Sing Tao Man Po said the Reds were making good progress toward Chengtu, which lies in a basin a few miles from the Sikang Province border. Nationalist Gen. Hu Taung-nan hurriedly had brought up troops for the defense of Chengtu. De fense lines were established 30 and 50 miles outside of the provisional capital. This rapid devolpmbnt in the Chinese civil war came only a few hours after Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, Nationalist leader, said the government would fight on against the Communists despite defeat on all sides. At about the time Gen. Chiang granted an exclusive interview to Spencer Moosa, Associated Press correspondent in Chengtu, Acting Nationalist President Li Tsung-jen left Hong Kong by plane for the United States. He had been in a hospital here for a stomach ailment. He was rumored en route to the United States to petition for aid for the Nation alists although he and Gen. Chiang have split.

Jor dan was called before the House Committee on Un-American Ac tivities today shortly after a com mittee investigator offered evi dence tending to support Mr. Jor dan's claim that secret documents and atom bomb material was shipped to Russia via lend-lease during the war. Four committee members began a preliminary hearing growing out a statement by Mr. Jordan last Friday that big loads of what a Russian colonel called uranium and “bomb powder” were flown to Russia under hurry-up instruc tions telephoned Mr. Jordan by the late Harry Hopkins, a right hand man to President Roosevelt. One of the first witnesses. Sen ior Investigator Louis J. Russell, said the committee has evidence of three shipments of atom bomb materials to Russia in 1943. He said he had no information that Mr. Hopkins was connected with them in any way. Sources Shut Off After First. Mr. Russell said it was de termined that after the first ship ment of atomic materials to Rus sia the Manhattan engineering district, which developed the atomic bomb under direction of Gen. Leslie Groves, “cut off all sources of supply of uranium ma terial in the United States.” Mr. Russell read a letter from the State Department, dated June 11, 1948, to a staff member of the committee which said export licenses were issued in March, 1943, for a first shipment of 200 pounds of uranic oxide and 200 pounds of uranium nitrate. An export license was issued for 500 pounds of each for the second shipment. Other evidence indicated this was in April, 1943. Also in April, 1943, there was a third export license for 25 pounds of uranium metal itself. Heavy Waxer Arranged For. Furthermore, the State Depart ment advised that in November of that year arrangements were made fdr Russia to get 1,000 grams of heavy water. The State Department said it had nothing to do with the trans actions but was merely supplying information from records of the lenu-iease administration and the Foreign economic Administration, whose remnants it absorbed. The Russian officials who were after uranium supplies, Mr. Rus sell said, were N. S. Fomichev, N. S. Stepanov, Col. A. N. Kotikov and V. Finogenov of the Russian Purchasing Commission and a Gen. Rudensky. Mr. Russell said the committee had been unable to get actual manifests for the shipments but (See URANIUM, Paige A-67> Ceianese Corp. Is Cited In I). S.

The three men fought desper ately to overpower Jailer Joseph Moxley, 67, and the trusty outside a cell block in the third-floor prison but were subdued when a police alarm was sounded. In a brief but vicious struggle, Mr. Moxley suffered head and hand injuries but these were not considered serious. Second Escape Attempt.

Mr. Moxley said the attempted escape today came with startling quickness. Accompanied by the trusty, Norman Shirley, 39, col ored, of Rockville, he was making rounds to collect litter from cell blocks. “Shirley was pushing a large trash recepticle to the block in which six men were held,” the jailer said. “I unlocked the door so we could collect the trash inside.

S. and Alaska ly William J. Wheatley The Air Force announced today it will use $50,000,000 of its cur rent appropriations to complete the first phase of an early radar warning system for the United States and Alaska. To provide funds for the under taking, the Air Force said it had canceled other projects scheduled for this year. It did not specify which projects would be deferred. Congress has authorized the project to the extent of $85,500, 000, but did not provide any funds. The Air Force was told that if it needed the system it would have to get it from other current ap propriations. Of the funds set aside, it was announced $18,800,000 would be used for construction of facilities within the United States. The re mainder, $31,200,000, would be used to develop the Alaskan see tion of the aircraft control and warning chain. It was pointed out that sites' which comprise the net have in most cases already been surveyed and selected both in the United States and Alaska. On most of the installations, right of entry, property, liases and construction plans have been completed. The project within the United States proper will be under the general direction of Lt. Gen. Ennis C. Whitehead, commanding the Continental Air Command at Mitchel Air Force Base in New York. The Alaskan phase will be in charge of Brig. Gen. Frank A. Armstrong, jr., commanding the Alaskan Air Command. Recent reports here said that Russia had an inner and outer radar system designed to give maximum protection against air attacks. Only in thg Siberian out- : posts, it was said, was the radar i system still inadequate. Temporary Buildings May Force Sesqui to Rearrange Layout U. S. Officials and Commission to Confer On Problem of Moving Structures By William A. Millen The National Capital Sesqui centennial Commission may have to revamp its entire plan for the arrangement of the Freedom Fair buildings in Anacostia Park be cause no money is available to move the temporary buildings now on the site at Oklahoma avenue and Benning road N.E., it was learned today.

Coffee Probers Told Publicity Helped Send Prices Even Higher Rush to Buy Followed; Safeway Stores' Official Quizzed on Markups By J. A. O'Leary Newspaper publicity about rising coffee prices and a resulting rush by consumers to lay in supplies helped to contribute to recent price increases, a Senate investi gating subcommittee was told to day. John C. Gardner, president of the New York Coffee and Sugar Exchange, Inc., testified that when “inflammatory” reports about a commodity appear, the housewife and other users want to carry larger stocks and this further dis rupts the market and creates “sud den and unwarranted price rises.” Another witness, George Mc Laughlin, a retired Government employe, testified that he paid 51 cents in a Safeway store here on the morning of December 1 for a jar of powdered coffee that previously had been selling in November for 42 cents. Tells of Price Rise. J. Arnold Anderson, price maker for the Washington Divi sion of Safeway Stores, told the subcommittee the manufacturers’ price to the Safeway went up on November 11 from 36 cents and a fraction per jar to 42Ms cents per jar. He said that in this case Safeway delayed three weeks be fore raising the retail price. Chairman Gillette of the sub committee pointed out that the manufacturer’s increase was 6 V2 cents, whereas the retail markup on December 1 was 9 cents. Mr. Anderson said he believed there was another advance after No vember 30 in the manufacturers’ price to Safeway.

The fire, confined to several rolls of paper, set off the sprinkler sys tem in the hallway, and sounded an alarm. A box alarm in front of the building was pulled and firemen quickly extinguished the blaze. Although the surrounding rooms and hallway were ‘flooded with more than an inch of water, fire men said that little damage had been done. Inflation Fears Rise, But Economists See Steady 1950 Sailing Truman Not Expected To Revive Demands For Standby Curbs By th« Associated Press Warnings of inflation are flut tering again in the Capital, but most of the economic lookouts discount any immediate peril. They see fairly steady, prosperous sailing throughout 1950. President Truman is not ex pected to revive his demands of a year ago for drastic “standby” anti-inflation powers. This de spite the rise in credit to new peaks, the firming of prices, and the fall improvement in business and employment. “ Government economists and some private experts report the revival of an “inflationary poten tial.” They base the report mainly on heavy in-the-red spending by the Government and on the new round of wage-and-pension in creases. Price Whirl Discounted. Yet few of them expect a major price whirl in the next 12 months. The “disinflation” is not over for some important industries. Many economists believe the long range hazard is deflation. A consensus of the forecasts might boil down to this: 1950 will be another year of high income and high production, on a level of prosperity not unlike 1949 and not far below record smashing 1948. Inflation warnings have been uttered by two bank presidents and other witnesses before the Economic Subcommittee headed by Senator Douglas, Democrat, of Il linois. These have stirred specu lation whether Mr. Truman will again seek controls over prices, wages, commodity trading and materials allocation. The decision, if it is not already made, will come in the next month as the President prepares his an nual economic message to the new session of Congress. Bid for Controls Unlikely. Persons in close touch with I White House planning say a new bid for controls Is unlikely and, even if one comes, would be turned down by Congress. This view is voiced by Senator (See INFLATIpN, Page A-4.) Windsor in London Alone LONDON, Dec. 5 (&).—'The Duke of Windsor arrived here from Paris today for a brief private visit.

Third Gambling Case Is Dropped By Government Snags Lewis Retrial Postponed by Court Until February 2 The gambling case against Louis Lieberman, another of the 36 persons indicted by the spe cial grand jury which investi gated gambling last spring, was dismissed by Government re quest in District Court today. At the same time, the retrial of William (Snags) Lewis and 13 co - defendants was postponed from January 9 to February 2 by Judge Alexander Holtzoff. The Lieberman case, charging the setting up of a gaming table, was scheduled for trial today. However, when the case was called. Assistant United States At torney John C. Conliff moved for dismissal. Lone Witness “Reluctant.” Mr. Conliff said the indictment was based on the evidence of a single witness, a Post Office em ploye. Since the indictment, Mr. Conliff said, the witness had be come “reluctant” and appeared to show signs of poor memory. Later. Assistant United States Attorney Richard Roberts identified the witness as James H. Jones, 1419 Chapin street NA^. Judge Holtzoff asked the prose cutor if the memory of the wit ness is as good today as it was when he testified before the spe cial grand jury. Mr. Conliff re plied that it is, but asked that the case be dismissed. i ne Liieoerman case is the third of the indictments to be dismissed so far. In one of the other cases, the Government requested dis missal because of insufficient evi dence and in another, the case was dropped against a defendant who already had pleaded guilty in Alexandria to charges based on the same evidence. Indictment Returned in April. The indictment against Lieber man returned last April charged that “during the period from April 8, 1946, to about the date of the return of this indictment” ithe defendant “did set up and keep a certain place for the pur pose of * * * betting on the results of horse races.” Lieberman, who lives at 1704 Seventh street N.W. and is the proprietor of a candy store, was one of two defendants who were not arrested as the result of the March 25 raids carried out by orders of United States Attorney George Morris Fay in his anti gambling crusade.
