F. Whittemore, president of the New Haven): "Rather than the issue being one of pricing ourselves out' of a market, the issue is whether industrial management will be far-sighted enough to pay a sufficient price for rail transportation to enable the railroads to finance the im. provcments necessary to insure iP-i'nUnuance in private ownership, Slid lo avoid socialized transportation." Which brings us to n picturesque dilemma: With the present switch from railroad to truck freight the lax- payers are taking a beating from highway damage, which ;\s early as last Spring was estimated at a billion dollars. But if the government should be Berlin. Nov. 17 (UP)— Russia threatened today to tighten the squee/o on blockaded West Berlin by invoking stern measures of reprisal if "separate elections" are held there next month. The Soviet threat was promul- ;al.cd through the army organ Rundschau. It came as the Western powers prepared in Paris to reject a United Nations proposal for a Big Four gathering. Russia welcomed the idea of renewal of talks by the council of Search for S'ayer of Two Spreads to Oklahoma Boca Paton. Fin., Nov. 17 — (UP)—The search for the- killer of sculptor Lcno Laxy.ari and his wife spread to Oklahoma today. Police Chief W. H.

Some time ago Russia refused the city government's request to hold municipal elections. The Western powers granted it. Col. Alexi Yalisarow, Berlin's dc-putly Soviet commandant, told' the Berlin government last Monday that Russia would not recognize the officials elected next month. The army organ said bluntly that the elections would mean the "final split" in Berlin between the East raid the West. Most Allied and German officials believed the Russians would carry out the threats expressed by Taeglichc Hundschau. It said subway and elevated trains and trolleys would halt at the ----- East-West sector boundaries, thnt all telephone service between the East and the Wst quarters would be cut. and that West Bcr- liners would be barred from hospitals in the Soviet sector.

The three powers reaffirmed their decision against negotiating with Russia on Berlin while the Sovet blockade of the Wcslerr sectors continues. These were the two main points of the West's argument.

Britain said the Russian veto of a Berlin solution offered .by the so-called neutrals c-i the security council stood 'in the way of 'progress toward a settlement.

Philadelphia, Nov. .17—(/I 1 ) --Henry Ford II. president of the Ford Motor Company, said today a fourth round of wage increases "is inevitable." "Workers are going to get another pay boost." Ford told a news conference. "1 don't think anything can prevent it." Ford came here w ; th other members of his firm's policy committee to inspect the Ford assembly pl-'inl at nearby Chester. Pa. The 31-year-old executive, commenting on the probable wage increase, said flatly: "Prices can't go anywhere but up. If wages go up and materials go up, prices loo must go up. There i is no place else for them to go." Would price control help? "No," Ford insisted. "Price control would wreck the nation — the auto industry included — and ruin the economy. "It is rcdiculqus to think that any person sitting in Washington can tell a company how much to charge for its product. "You must have profits to pay stockholders and keep business modernized." Ford declared price control is "a trend toward socialism. And such a system would be despicable for the; United States." Ford also defended the Taft- Hartley Labor law. He was backed up by John S. Bugas, Ford vice president in charge of industrial relations. "From our standpoint there is no part of the Taft-Hartley law that is unworkable," Ford said. "I don't think it is a bad law. But it has been pushed into the realm of the political and that's too bad—for both employe and employer. "We at Ford feel the Taft-Harlley law should be given a fair and lengthy trial before it is changed." When will a customer be able to go to a dealer and get delivery of an automobile immediately? "I would guess that it will be a year and a half before that happens," Ford replied. "But a customer can usually get a highpriccd car today without waiting." He had this further comment: (ll On an automatic transmission for Fortls, Mercury:; and Lincoins: "I wish we had an automatic transmission today. We have one under development -and hope to have it in operation in the not- ino'-diKlant future, ft will, have 50 per cent fewer parts than those now in use.." . i?)

Observer;- 1 , in". 1 : 1 nisls' i;m--yc;;r minht c'.'i-H force.- Washington, Nov. 17 —f/D—Diplo niatic authorities speculated today that the American government soon may issue a pronouncement designed to boost the morale of China's anti-Communist forces. President Truman and the State: (Department have before them a plea from Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek for a policy declaration reaffirming support of Chiang's Nfi- tif'iialist government. Undersecretary of Stale Robert A. Lovelt scheduled a news conference today -but it was undetermined beforehand whether he vould discuss this aspect o£ the -hina situation. Most informed officials considered it more likely that any broad policy declaration would have to awnit the review of international affairs with Mr. Truman and Secretary of State Marshall will hold at the White House next Monday! They also arc expected to come- to grips with the major issue ot how far the United States can and should go in backing up its China policies with dollars, arms and civilian goods. Chinese Ambassador Wellington Koo told a reporter late yesterday that he had transmitted to the State Department Chiang's deMre for an American policy statement. Koo said his government is at a loss to know what United States policy really is. Thus there; was some tendency among officials here to regard Koo's comments as implying a belief that the United Stales is not now following a policy friendly to the Nanking gov~ eminent. Authorities concerned over thii> point declared that any such implication is in.iustified, since the United States actually is spending $•100,000,000 for military and civilian aid to Nationalist China. Some consideration has been given to the idea of furnishing military supplies directly to nnlitary commanders of the. Nationalist forces in order to get around the red tape and inefficiency of which authorities here privately accuse the present ' Nanking aadminiitra- tion. All such considerations, so far as can be learned, arc based on the assumption that direct dealings with the generals would first be approved "by Chiang. The .present $400,000,000 pro East in If of Suchow, lost .more of its <~>full stroiiglh >of,i and Marshall are .expected to' ton-",' ; sidcr, at least, in "a .gdntr'al 1 way, Ji "what kind of .progranv'.tlie n'dmln- istratioh should try "to''work vip.lbi' '^ ,the next'session of Congi'ess.'oJKJh'i "i ing in .'January.
