It's Her First Move Toward Clearing Out Of The Balkans (By United Trpftn) Russia has made ono of its blg- .trest concessions to date at foreign ministers conference. It has agree-d to withdraw Red Army troops from Bulgarln, This is the first move by the Rus- sinns toward clearing out of tho Balkans. Up until now, Soviet For- olgn Commissar Molotov has blocked all suggestions for such a withdrawal. But at this morning's session ii Paris, the big four ministers mado a deal. They agreed on the Kiniul- taneous evacuation of all Allied troops from Italy within 90-dnys nf- tcr the Italian poucc treaty takes effect, providing R-.issian troops leave Bulgaria at the same time. The plan was laid down by British Foreign Secretary Bcvin, and was at once agreed to by American Secretary of State Byrnes. The agreement ,iui it now stands, marks the first step toward Anglo- American recognition of_ tho Bulgarian government—something the Soviets have been plugging for right along. Although the ministers were able, to chalk up appreciable progress toward drafting the Italian ponce pnct at their morning session, it ws not all clear salHng. They have been unable to reach <\ny final agreement on France's territorial claims against Italy in the re-drawing ot t heir common frontier. However, another mcet- 'ng is scheduled for this afternoon, •naking 'the first double session •ince the council reconvened laist Saturday, Britain's Headache A.H qf Britain's! international headaches: ore 'not v belpp thrashed 3ut «t the Paris confcj-encc table.

The Mufti has shown up in Egypt —and apparently he's going .to be nade welcome there. High officials if the British foreign office soy they will make "representations to "Sgypl — but the exact form they -.vill take still is under consideration. One spokesman hints that '.he Egyptians may be asked to hand over the Mufti on the grounds that he is considered an enemy of British, and a •trouble maker. But the Egyptian premier—Ismail Pas-ha—has just announced that his cabinet considers the Mufti a. political refugee, not a war criminal. Now Clash A new clash between Jews and British soldicr.s in the dark streets of Tel Aviv has raised the five- day violent death toll in Palestino to 23.
