(UP)—Yugoslavia's Vice Premier Edward Kardclj today demanded that Austria's current industrial production be used la fulfill Yugoslavia's demands of 5150,000,000 worth of reparations from Austria. Karriclj coupled his demand with a press conference statement bitterly attacking Austria on twice being a tool of German imperialism and clmi'iiing that she may become such a tool again. He demanded thai Yugoslavia'* reparations claims be p.iid for out of Austria's industrial production. That coincides with the Soviet Union's current fight in the German treaty to Bet, reparations in Industrial goods. Kardelj announced bis demand today—two days after' conferring with soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Mololov after arriving here. Austrian reparations of any kind would conlavene the secret .Moscow protocol which said that no reparations would be extractct from Austria. ' £• Today's demands on Austria were T* centered on the possibility of AUB trjn again being used as a base to attack on llic Yugoslav people. Kardelj said twice in the last 41 years "Austria has served as a too in the hands of German imperial ism for quelling the resistance o Yugoslav peoples who wer e strivin to independence and freedom. W regret lo note that no changes ha v developed in the political life. Q Austria which would justify th hope that the Austrians will neve again assume such a role in th future." Kardelj charged that forme Fascists and Nazis were still bein given power in Austria "under a lied protection" over those wh fought during the war for the a lies. Lists Six Demands Kardelj listed six Yugoslav de mauds on Austria: (1) Imposition of conditfon : ire in Cincinnati Zoo akes Lives of Tropical irds Valued at $7,500 CINCINNATI, O., April 5.
