The fruit of two raids on block-, aders, the bust-head whiskey was valued by Pearce at about $8 per gallon—or roughly $1,400. The largest share of the loot, some 140 gallcns, was taken from a convicted white whiskey dealer. The remaining 34 gallons, said Pearce, was snagged in • a raid on a Harnett still. The first batch was takSn Oct. 2, the second during Nov ember. POWERFUL STRETCH Luckily, there were no public drunks In the cells to be driven mad by the powerful stench of raw moon shine. Most of the stuff came in half gallon jars which are destined for the junk heap. Pearce said that recovered whiskey jugs have little resale value—people just don’t want to can food in a jar which’ once contained the volatile liquid.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1950 Air, Sea Land Bombardment ( Stops Chinese 1300 ENEMY TROOPS REPORTED KILLED IN PAST 24 HOURS TOKYO, Dec. 20 (UP)— An unparalleled land, sea and air bombardment strew ed death and destructfcn through Communist forces besieging the melting United Nations beachhead in North east Korea today. Carrier-based planes alone killed or wounded 1,300 enemy troops in the past 24 hours. Artillery batteries jammed into the tiny beachhead around Hungnam and the big guns of warships offshore took an almost equal toll. Full military censorship imposed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s head quarters this afternoon cloaked late details of the beachhead fighting., but at lasr reports units of the revived North Korean Army still were jabbing at the northeast rim of the beachhead. U. S. defenders of the beachhead easily parried the attacks, and the rain of shells, bombs and bullets prevented the enemy from moun ting a full-scale assault. For the moment, upwards of 100,000 Chinese massed around the tjcacnhead were leaving the fighting to the North Koreans. On the other side of Korea, South Korean 3rd Gorps forces ran into strong North Korean resistance yesterday along a 30-mile front northeast of Seoul in their two week-oldliniited offensive.

LOFTUS U P Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 —(UP) — The government put all businessmen on their honor today not to raise prices and to cancel some increases made since the Korean war began. The Economic Stabilization Agen cy announced a set of pricing stan dards, generally geared to pre-Korea profits .arid Dec. 1 prices, that'will serve as voluntary price ceilings for big and little business. They cover practically everything from the cor ner grocery store to the giant steel industry. WAGES NEXT Wages are next. An ESA spokes man said a corresponding plan for voluntary stabilization of everyone’s pay check is in preparation and will be disclosed in the very near fut ure. Two Senate Republicans—John W. Bricker, 0., and Homer E. Cape hart, Ind.—said the administration ■was ignoring the intent of Congress by imposing price controls without “simultaneous wage controls.” The Steel industry reacted caut- i iously to the new government move. U.S. Steel Corp., pace-setter of 1950 wage-price increase, refused comment. But some industry spokesmen said it was uncertain whether the government order ap plied to the latest steel price boost —effective Dec. I—and that it “looks like a problem that,will have to be straightened out in Washington.” About the only exceptions from the voluntary price controls right now are farmers and. automobile makers.

The end of “voluntary censorship” and immediate start of compulsory military censorship was announced by Col. M. P. Echols, MacArthur’s public information officer at 3:30 p.m. (1:30 a.in. EST>. A memorandum handed to cor respondents said that: 1. Dispatches written by corres pondents in Korea and transmitted to Japan by army-controlled com munications will be screened for security in Korea. 2. Material originating in Japan will be submitted to the press ad visory section of MacArthur’s head quarters for clearance before trans mission. 3. Dispatches already screened in Korea need not be submitted to the press advisory section in Tokyo unless they have been rewritten. The memorandum said the cen sorship order applied to “all press stories, radio broadcasts, magazine articles and photographs pertaining to military operations.” INCLUDES ALL FORMS “Military operations will be In terpreted to include all forms—that Is supply, transportation, evacuation and. administration, as well as cas ualties and replacements," it said.
