Paris, Sept. 23 23 — (/P)—A British United Nations delegate _declared today the Berlin quarrel "will be given to the .U. N. assembly if Russia rejects a "final three- power note" for prompt settlement. This statement was made by Sir Hartley Shawcross, Britain's attorney general. The foreign minister's of Britain, France and the United States sent identical notes to the Kremlin last night asking a yes or no answer to this auc.stion: Is a Berlin settlement possible along lines already broadly drawn at recent conferences in Moscow | and Berlin? Shawcross, in response to a reporter's question today, asserted: "It is the understanding (among the three powers) that the whole question of Berlin will be tossed in'c the assembly agenda if the latest and final three-power note does not produce Russian agreement." This was the first confirmation from an official source that the three Western powers intend to turn the Berlin problem over to the U. N. If Russia does not end her blockade of the German city and discuss four-power control of the Soviet mark in Berlin. Herbert V.

Mexican authorities said they doubted if quite that many will be available. Earl Littleton, Newport, Ark., ran into difficulties because he lacked necessary documents. He represents twelve employers who asked for 350 men. The men wore lined up Tuesday, Herby said, but Mexican authorities would allow only 80 to go -because Littleton had immigration papers for only that number. The procedure is that the U. S. Employment Service inthc United States should certify to the need for men. The employer then must put up a bond and get authority from the Department of Justice and papers from the immigration service to take the men into the United States. Without those papers the Mexican authorities will not permit the men to go. Littleton now is trying to get the required papers. Recruiting started slowly because few braceros appeared but gradually word spread through the (surrounding country that men were needed and now there is a line-up of them. reclion of D.

Y., Sept. 24. — (UP)—Construction of the first atomic power plant in history will begin this fall on a 4,500-acre tract near here, it was announced today. The U. S. Atomic Energy Commission said the plant will generate electric power from nuclear fission on an "experimental" basis, but will not produce power commoricslly. The pilot plant is expected to "yield important data leading ultimately to the design of reactors (atomic furnaces! which will produce power on a practical scale," the commission said. Army engineers will begin at once to procure land for the site, which is about 18 miles north of Schenectady and 10 miles west of Saratoga Springs. The commission assured residents of the area that every safeguard will be taken and that dangers will be "remote." "H is not possible to have a bomb-like explosion." it .said. The plant 'will be operated by the General Electric Co., and will be considered part of the facilities of the present knolls atomic power laboratory at Schenectady, which is under GE management. The commission indicated it will be at least a year anci a half before the plant is completed. "Preliminary construction work j will begin this fall." th e official -.announcement said. "Construction schedules will make it possible to give the residents of the area from six to 1!! months in which to find new homes and move. About ;;t) families are living in the area selected for the site. The commission said that scientific and technical, knowledge gathered in five years of atomic research will be incorporated in the design of the "nuclear reactor" which will form the heart of the plant.

To make 1 'it plenty'plain that appeasement is out the window. 2. To serve notice that the three democracies won't be bullied into abandoning* their position. 3. To put the Russians on the spot'before world opinion as mal- igners in the cause of peace and rehabilitation if they fail -to cooperate. If these purposes arc truly served, then that in itself will be a notable achievement by the Western powers. However, we shouldn't fail to note that this won't necessarily bring us any nearer a settlement pi the "cold war" with the Bolshevists. In fact, it will be mighty surprising if it does. We may be dead sure. I believe, that even though the Reds may make some concessions here and there as a matter of expediency, they won't abandon their world revolution for the spread of communism until it either succeeds or blows up in their faces.

If it works as scientists "have reason to expect." the commission said, the plant will have the startling characteristic of turning out as a "by-product" even more fissionable material than it consumes as fuel. The reactor to be installed at the Saratoga county plant is one of two now being designed in the commission's laboratories for the special purpose of producing power. The other such reactor, which Berlin, Sept. 24 — (/Pi — The Rus sians threw anti-aircraft fire into the crowded Berlin air corridor today, but didn't hit anything. The British-American air lift to block- jaded Berlin kept right on running. l The Russians told the Amcr'i- iczns and British about their firing practice an hour and a half after lit started. I tcontinued for three and a half hours. Althoughit did fail to halt the air lift, it caused another protest. One officer gave it as his personal, professional opinion that the Russian gunners were practicing in a serious sort of way. First o all, he said, the shells were going up to 10,000 feet, "which is as high as we fly." In the second place, lie added, the notification — "an hour an d a half late" — was a little less than polite. ' In spite of the fire, however, air planes bore in another 3,G13 tons of jfood and coal to Berlin within the |last 2-j hours.'They now have delivered 194,495 tons since the blockade-busting June '26. up— but that remains to be demonstrated. The democracies are insisting on a clean-cut "yes" or "no" answer to the question of whether a Berlin settlement is possible along lines,already broadly drawn at the re- < cent Moscow and Berlin conferences. Any settlement would involve a lifting of the brutal Russian food and fuel blockade of the German capital. The trio on their- part are willing to make the concession of accepting the Soviet mark as sole currency lor Berlin, providing this currency is under lour-power authority. This is not an ultimatum to Moscow and no lime limit is set for an answer. However, British Foreign Minister Bcvin has said that the. 1 ? three. powers are i n "absolute agreement" on a policy of "defending themselves in Berlin" and are agreed on a policy if the air- hft fails to give the blockaded cap-' ital the supplies needed. American Secretary of . State Marshall supplemented this in his speech before the U. N. general assembly in Paris yesterday. Ho warned the Soviet Union that American patience should not be mistaken for weakness. Meantime America and Britain arc openly tightening up their de- icnses for contingencies. The U. S. A. has been putting its house in order over a considerable period. England now is moving swiftly and within the past few days has slowed clemobiiixation, launched an intensive recruiting campaign and begun a revival of her wartime civilian defense system. But don't gel any mistaken ideas from these developments. Their very openness is clear proof that they are purely precautionary and are not invitations to war.
