April 23. <UP>—The American delegation to the Moscow conference has abandoned hope of completing the Austrian Treaty here ami is preparing for adjournment tomorrow, it was learned today. Even if the Russians should give way on (he German assets issue, the key problem in the Austrian .settlement, the Americans doubt that the bi;; four meeting could be prolonged sufficiently to complete' the treaty. The u. s. delegation believed that tile council would require two more meetings to clean up the odds and ends aii(| decide to whom to refer ?he various issues on which the WfJiss Four were unable to agree. The deputies for Germany spent Iho morning drafting a balance sheet on the status of all proposals before the council. The ministers were meeting "this evening. They were expected to weet again tomorrow', probably preparatory to an early windup of the conference. If they decided to adjourn to- monoiv, tlic de-legations would be- pin leaving immediately. The first American plane probably would leave Friday, and the British and French trains Thursday night or Friday. This evening's council session was postponed until 5:30 P.M., apparently because the deputies had not- comple:ed the report for which the ministers were Availing. The ministers will go home without .settling any basic principles for the future of Germany, Barring unexpected concessions by the Soviets. If there is to be any yielding, It must come very soon. Pate of ihe Austrian treaty the other major project... .ere—shtill lianas in Ihe balance. "Agreement could be reached within a few ijiours if the Kremlin would accept ^hc Western version of how to handle German assets in Austria. Failure on Austria would make the seven-week conference almost a total failure, so far as concrete achievements arc concerned. instead of the usual $l.r;0. One store sold all while shlrU at half-price. Other advertised bni'Kains included $10 leisure coats at $3.'JL>; $10 hats at $5.95; and $5 .spoil. shirts at $2.08. "Half-price" was the by-wnrd for womcns' clothes. Spi ing coals that sold for $170 were on sale at $85 in one store, and S70 Spring suits went at $35 in another store. Lingerie, a]| millinery, shoes, ptirse.'i, dresses, costume jewelry and other accessories ingly. were reduced accord- Olhcr elites Follow l^xamplc SHERMAN OAKS, cal, April as. (UP) — Forty-eight of this city's merchants today pledged themselves to cut prices 10 to 50 per cent for a week, starling tomoiVow. "to sec if we can't get the price- cut ball rolling a liltle faster." The plan, similar to one adopted by merchants of Newburyprirl, Mass.. was outlined nt a hastily called meeting last night at which movie actor Arthur Trcachcr, honorary mayor of this unincorporated lown of 30,000. presided. Merchants were pledf,'iiiR Ihem- sch'CK to cut prices on everytlnnt but "fair trade items on which we can't, legally trim." 23. (UP) ls H. HIM. s ml(lcnly- Prices Holding tip Here A check of several merchants or Main street in Blythevllle today failed to disclose any general trend toward a reduction in prices here. Blythcville and Mississippi County last fall had one of the richest harvests in history for the farmers and this favorable condition apparently is being reflected in business conditions this Spring.
