TUESDAY, 'A?Tm, 12, 1049 BT/YTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE TBREB Plan for German RepublicTangled Social Democrats f Reject- Proposal by *•, Big Three Ministers Hy Edward E. Iloniar WASHINTON, April 12. <m— Plans [or a new Western German Republic soon may be tas-sed back Into • Uio l?.p;. of the Big Three toreiKn ministers. They whipped these plans into sliupc licre only liist \vrek. Disturbed American officials thought to this powitbillty todaj after lenders of Ibe German Socia 1 Dcmocinttc Party rejected tho ternus ns outlined by Secretary ol State Acho.son, liritish Foreign Sec Tc'ary Bevin find Foreign Minister Sfhumaii of France. The Socialists are slroiiK eiiouRl to blocy. ncccfwuy approval by tin - German parliamentary council a Bonn. The council lias lieon at work ; for months on a eonstituUon for f federal state which would dircc , most rtcmesiic. ai'fairs of tho 45.000. '. (100 people ill the Western occupa tion zones. Officials hope that German dlt ferenccs over the plans may yet b i ironed out without retelling th whole project back to the thre we.sler'i diplomats—a move whtcr nilslit be a hard blow to the West in the strn'-iele with Soviet Russia. *. The possibility that the Germans ^ might balk was foreseen when the foreign ministers ' announced on ' Friday they had readied full atjrce- , nient on their future course in ' Germany—including a step to return a large measure of self-government to the defeated nation. Bevin advised then that "if the Germans are wise they will respond." The Social Democratic Party i-s ho'.dine out for a stronger central government tlir.n the allies are will- ins to grant. The foreign ministers had favored placing authority over foreign trade and lorelpn exchange in the hands of a civilian, three- member allied hiph commission ' which would take the reins now held bv military governors. The new plan would become effective alter the new German constitution has been ratified by the • occupying powers and aproved by • the. Western German voters.
