(By United The United Stales- Yugoslav controversy may bounce far beyond the borders of just the two disputing countries. Its most far-i-caching— and devae- tating effect- is a possible failure of tho Paris peace conference. Secretary of State Byrnes is reported willing to risk even that in order to win in the show-down against the Yugoslavs. That's how serious the situation is in the cyca of our State department. The controversy has grown out of the shooting down of two American planes in Yugoslav territory, After repeated protests, the State Department last night finally got tough. It handed an ultimatum to the Yugoslav government. The ultimatum set a deadline — !S hours — in which to release the Americans, tbose still alive, who were taken from the two downed planes. And if the demand is not hiet, the U. S. says it will take ihe case *o the United Nations, charging Yugoslavia with endangering the peace. In Paris, Byrnes is said to be willing- to gamble both America's prestige and the chances for a successful pcuco conference an hi.- demands for satisfaction from Yugoslavia. The issue is not schoolboy- ish. It's much more material than just a cnse of principle. For Byrnes believes if the U. S. demands arc not complied with, there is no point in the conference discussing the peace treaty with Italy and the key .problem ot' Trieste. That problem of Trieste — involving Yugoslavia — has been ' a sore spot uver since the conference began. Yugoslavia -wants the city— a busy port on the Adriatic — for herself. But the United States has been arguing for internaional con- rol. And it's believed if the United States allows her face to be slapped in the plane incidents, it would make her that much, less forceful when it carne to the argument of Trieste. Pcac« Delegates Jittery Meanwhile, the Paris conference is going on this morning, but it's a hollow sort of a thing. The" delegates arc jiltery aild seem to be do- in g-.'io more than going through the motions. They had been hoping the United States- Yugoslav dispute could be. ironed out amicably. Now — after just one year of peace — they're faced with a possible breaking off of the conference that is supposed to make treaties for a permanent world peace. Whether Marshal Tito will comply with our ultimatum or not i.s a mutter of much conjecture in Washington. Ofl'cials there believe the answer depends o!j Russia — on. the extent to which Prussia will back Tito. If the aid is no more thnn passive, It Is believed the Yugoslavs will yield. Yugoslav Spokesman'* Prediction A Yugoslav spokesman in London, however, predicts his government will reject the United States ultimatum. He mainains his coun- ry was quite within its rights in acting as it did: after repeated diplomatic representation on' the infringement of Yugoslav sovereignty had failed. The spokesman says Yugoslavia paid a higher proportion of the war's cost in blood than any other nation. He goes on to say that now his country -wants peace — but it must be peace with honor. And he expresses the hope that an amicable settlement con be reached between Secretary Byrnes and Yugoslav Vice Premier Edward Kardclj. In Yugoslavia Itself, the American ambassador, Richard Patterson, Jr., is flying toward a meeting with Marshal Tito. Tito is vacationing at Bled, on the Austrian- Yugoslav border, and that's where Patterson is going. That's also the place where Tito witnessed the shooting down of the second American transport plapc with the apparent loss of three lives. London Iteporta The British papers are headlining the American ultimatum to Yugoslavia. In a story from Paris, the London Evening News reports that Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov has instructions to back the Yugoslavs right up to the last minute but to be ready to compromise at the deadline. The News also reports that British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin is expected to see the Yugoslav vice-premier, Kardclj. It is reported Bevin will warn htm that a continuation of the present Yugoslav attitude will gravely impah- Anglo-Yugoslav relations- Field Street Lot Sold Deed Shows Elbert Jones has Bold a lot on Field street to Charles and Kate Jones, according to a warranty deed on file in the office of: Town.
