"I really wished I had a camera When: .they hauled in., a freshly- Kiiled-dcer covered with blood," the sergeant said. "They butchered H .'right' there and began to cook arm eat it." 'XheV.JJ.ussians examined Felling's credentials and informed him he could, not proceed until the following, morning because the Elbe river ferry had been : closed for the night; As he chatted with Russian noncommissioned officers in English and halting German, other Russians 'examined with great Interest the radio, heater, cigarette lighter and dashboard of his new automobile. "They seemed astonished that an ordinary G. I. could own an automobile like that," Felling said. The sergeant said that when he returned "to the Soviet barrier the next morning he .was waved on to Beihn, "by my old friends of the night before." Felling said he encountered no difficulty until he reached a Soviet checkpoint just outside of Berlin. .There, he showed two armed Russians-: the same "credentials" he diad. produced earlier. But they 3oo\ed dubious. . : -''The- barrier, was up and I knew it- they ever put it down it would sta.V down:" Felling said. "So I . .. to them.

Teachers in the district told me that they h,ad been interviewed about me. I would get mysterious telephone calls. Once I found a message to call the NKVD about a certain local teacher who had been purged as a counter-revolutionary. I knew that if I did not answer -the call, it would be interpreted as an admission of my having known him. Boldly I telephoned the NKVD headquarters and informed that I l:ad not been in the district long and had never known the man. Time dragged on. The winter was drawing to -, close.

The carriers filed an Amended petition with, the Interstate Commerce Commission asking the 13 per cent increase. The new application supplants an October 1 petition for an eight per cent rate increase.. Vice President Jacob Aronson, of the New York Central system, said the addition five per cent advance now being asked is necessary because of the ten cents an ho.ir wage increase granted railway conductors and trainmen, effective October 16. Aronson said the wage increase sets a pattern for the whole Ihdus- Ir.v and if applied to nil rail workers will cost the railroads $371,-! (100.000 a year in wages and pay-' rol! taxes. The new petition asked that the ICC grant an eight per cent increase immediately while the commission is considering the proposed 13 per cent advance as a permanent part of the rate structure. Russia Ago in. Continued on page two which suggests cither that Russia is in the wrong or that a blockade in fact exists ground Berlin. A British spokesman told reporters today the Westerrt powers feel certain the course they are following in the end will make Russia, "reorientate her policies" in Germany. He said the Western power offensive in the security council has "kept Vishinsky fairly subdued." Russia, he explained, has been put en the defensive. Austin asserted it is "a misconception to suppose that differing systems cannot live side by side in peace under the basic rules'of international conduct prescribed by the charter of the United Nations." But he said, the United Nations must teach the Russians "what is possible and what is impossible in the relationship between the Soviet Union and the world at large." A Russian proposal for a one- tbird arms reduction and junking of atomic weapons was under consideration. Vishinsky complained bitterly in reply to Austin that, in the West- r'-n view, "whatever we do is wrong." Every sentence of the Western speeches, the Russian said, "showers blame on us." The Soviet representatives attack nobody, he said. "Can you deny that the .Soviet proposal contaionsfnnaoattioa f io proposal contains not an iota, of a shadow of a hint of an attack on anybody?" he asked. Speaking in a much calmer tone than in previous speeches, the Soviet deputy foreign minister declared: i. "You are accusing the Soviet delegation of provocation, no less. Is that thinkable? It would be luci-: crous if it was not so dad." He said Austin had interpreted his quotations from Soviet leaders "in a distorted manner." "I don't like these theoretical discussions on Marxism and Leninism," he said. Then Vishinsky said he was willing to discuss Marxism and Len- insim if Austin wished. "Okay, let's fight," he said. "Let's argue. Let's have a big dispute on ahese quotations." He said the quotations had been twisted—by lifting them out of context—to. mean exactly the opposite 'o what' they said. Tie said that the capitalist and t Communist ideologies could live i side by side in the some world "if bo;h sides try to understand h" o her side." "Hence our desire to coopera'.e. ' be said. "We want to cooperate. "We are yearning for cooperation." Vishinsky added, however, that cooperation was Impossible as long ;:s one side "is bolstered by the atomic bomb." He did not repeat bis hints of Oct. 1 that the Soviet union already has the. atom bomb. The Russian showed some heat when he commented^ on an Austin statement that the Soviet Union in 1039 had been a "working partner with the oft-denounced Nazis." "While wo \vere talking with the Germans, behind out back; you were trying "to,' sign ,a peat with the Germans" to channel Hitlerite aggression against tho Soviet Union," he charged. Tins, he said, was the "role of your Chamberlains and Daladiers." The United States, he charged, "made Hitlerite agression" possible by pouring millions and millions of dollars into Germany. Vishinsky then returned to his argument that the Communist and capitalist worlds can exist together. "ideological differences cannot decisive role where there Hppe Dawns for Czechs Fleeing Reds Arkansas Fugitive Held by Officers in Philadelphia Philadelphia, Oct. 12 —(UP)-—A husky 19-year-old Texan was in .lail in default of $25,000 bail today as a fugitive from the Arkansas state prison. Alva D. Rodgcrs, El Dorado, j Tex., was seized Oct. 1 in a bus terminal by detectives, who said he checked a revolver in a locker. Magistrate Thomas E.

Ickes is backing President Truman in next month's election. The 74-year old New Dealer who broke with Mr. Truman in February. lf)4fi, after 13 years' service as secretary of the Interior, rejoined the Democratic ranks yesterday. . Although he said he "would welcome an opportunity to vole for someone else," Ickes gave conservation of the nation's natural resources as the deciding factor in his choice of presidential candidates. "As between Thomas elusive Dewey, the candidate in sneakr- ers." Ickes said in a statement, "I prefer to support Mr. Truman, who is straightforward' and sincere, if nt times more unpredictable than I Would wish." Icke once a leading member oC the old Progressive party, said the new Progressive party candidate, Henry Wallace "in his Communist stew . is impossible." As for supporting Norman Thomas, the Socialist standard bearer, would be wasting a vote." The former cabinet member registered la:;l year as a "non-partisan" at his home in nearby Olney, Md.

We can common interests," he sit at the same table. Together, we defeated Fascism Vishinsky interrupted himself at tins point to admonish: •'Listen, Mr. Austin, it's really very interesting." Austin repeatedly called on Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister \\\. drei Y. Vishinsky to deny declarations of Soviet and other Communist leaders that peace between the Soviet Union and the capitalist world is impossible. As he spoke the Western powers, convinced mediation et- lorls are futile, pressed for a .showdown in the security council on their demand lhat Russia raise the blockade of Berlin. U. N. sources said. Britain. France and ihe United States want a council session tomorrow or Thursday, feeling the time for action has armed. The Kremlin's answer to efforts of the so-called neutral states to mediate in the Berlin crisis siill is awaited. Some Western sources said there would have been some hope al compromise if a Russian answer was conciliatory in tone.
