Pctcrmaii' Inquirer Foreign Correspondent LONDON. Sept. 15. THIS seems like where I ca me in. While newsboys shout serious headlines on Berlin and Moscow, thousands of Britishers this moment are stand; ng outside in the famous Strand, watching American and RAF jet fighters and heavy bombers overhead. Just above the rooftops, they're roaring across London marfcng the eighth anniversary of ihe Roval Airforce's greatest clay asainst the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain. On Sept. 15, 1940, those immortal few downed 249 enemy bombers the h gh tide in the struggle that held these islands against Hitler. Today's headlines describe the Labor Party's hurried rearmament plans: three months of extended service by thoe still serving:, increased recruitments, greater Jet plane production and more military appropriations. From Moscew comes "diplomatic talks near-Ing- end." Josef Stalin is reported to have gone into the country while his Berlin dep i-ties give off double talk. I must admit it lsnt very encouraging to return to Europj. Winston Churchill is hustling home from a French vacation. He is expected to ask pertinent questions next week in parliament. That labor-dominated body met frostily the last tbree davs but instead of nationalizing steel, a move proposed for It his session, it now appears can-cerned with wartime allocations All the way from Southampton to London I saw more uniforried men and air force activity than since the war's end Britain , There is today a definite re turn to war psychosis herelast spring 1 didn't feel it anywhere like this. As I stopped near the Savoy Hotel, counting bat-like Meteors, Shooting Stars and Sunerforts. a former RAF pilot now seeking re-enlistment siid, "Everyone's scared stiff. Thit's whv vou notice the jitters all over. "People are irritable and uneasy about the future. Can you blame them? Here it's theeig ith anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the third year since the war's end but there s no peace in sight." The British Foreign Of f ce announced today that Ernest Bevin was going to Paris Son-day but would return by midweek to discuss the Germ. in crisis in Parliament. Under prodding by the Conservatives, the present British Admin s-tration is heeding the alarmed public's demands it do something about the worsening' conditions. Parliamentary debate was postponed several days however, in the hope the week-end might develop a brighter picture But Moscow's message last night was painfully brief and today s announcements only serve to heighten everyone's suspicions of Soviet policy. The plain truth is that the British, like Americans, have gradually discovered they're in a diplomatic revolving door with Uncle Joe. When during the last lew days it was announced that Marshal Sokolovsky had teen discussing matters unrelated to Moscow's agreements in principle, namely Allied acceptance of Russian currency in Berlin.

The three men kept slipping and falling in the deep mud, but Severa kept gaining. Srymanski fired wice over his head in warning. A third shot hit the fleeing man. Severt, an umpire in the Eastern League, was accused of attack ng a 14-year-old pirl last Christmas The warrant was sworn by the ciild's mother. Survey Urges Closing Of 15 Police Stations To Save Headquarters Proposed at 22d, Market Map on Page 2 By WILLIAM F. FEIST Immediate ' closing of 15 of Philadelphia's 35 police stations and demolition of those buildings not needed for municipal purposes was proposed yesterday In a report submitted to the Committee of Fifteen. The report, prepared by James Leonard. Detroit police expert and Investigator for the Philadelphia Committee of the Pennsylvania Economy League, also recommended the ultimate abandonment of Ave other centrally located station -ouses. which would be replaced by a headquarters station on city-owned land near 22d and Market sts. MILLION SAVING ESTIMATED The changes, if effected, would result in operating economies of more than $1,000,000 annually, the report stated. At the same time, a subcommittee was appointed to draw up plans based on the report. Its members. Director of Public Safety James H. Malone. Councilman George Max-man, head of Council's Public Safety Committee, and Leonard, were ordered to report back with definite recommendations by Oct. 15. It was suggested that the sub committee seek the approval of councilman and police inspectors in various districts involved before completing their report. In general, the report pictured the station houses as dirty, dilapidated and "a heritage of a bygone age of police administration." A few of the buildings were described as fire hazards. The station houses listed for im mediate closing, with their functions transferred to adjoining police dis tricts, are: Tenth 1417 N. Front st. Thirteenth 4431 Main st.

"I also intend to remind the Mayor that he promised that this matter would be concluded by last Aug. 1." Councilman Clarence K.

While union officials would not comment on the fact that the in structions were issued when one man operators " replaced two-man crews on Routes 5 and 65. spokes men previously announced that safe and courteous operation could not be maintained with one-man cars. The instructions, while warning the operators they must "arrive at all time points on scheduled time and leave terminals, on scheduled time" also state they must operate in the interest of safety. The safety rules call for the trol ley operators to "stop at all face pointing switches: observe to the let ter all traffic regulations; make safety stops at all intersections: not to sacrifice safety while collecting fares; or operate if vision front or side is obscured. In addition, the instructions tell the operators to be "courteous and do not sacrifice courtesy just to make a schedule. Spokesmen for the PTC reported that there have been no unusual delays since one-man operation went into effect on Routes 5 and 65 on Monday. The newly formed union commit tee sent telegrams to Mayor Bernard Samuel and the Public Utilities Commission earlier this week asking their support in opposing the new PTC operating program. Neighbors Lashed By Yugoslav Reds BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, Sept. 15 (AP). Yugoslav Communists in dicated today their relations with neighboring Rumania and Hungary were near the breaking point. They declared that friendship and alliance with these countries could not exist under the pressure, slander and calls to revolt being conducted against Marshal Tito's Communist government. The crumbling relations were made more apparent in an editorial to day in Borba, the Communist Party newspaper, which criticized Ruman ian and Hungarian replies to recent Yugoslav notes of protest against anti-Tito declarations. Don't Miss The Women's Section Tomorrow and every Friday in The Inquirer U S. Moves To Break Up Big 4 Packers Clark Charges Group Stifles Competition In Meat Industry By NICHOLAS P. GREGORY Inquirer Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Sept. 15. At torney General Tom C. Clark today accused the "Big Four" meat packers of violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Act and asked the Federal court to break them up into smaller companies. In a civil suit filed In the Dis trict Court at Chicago, Clark charged the meat packers with "sup pressing competition In the sale of meat and meat products." He also sought to divide the " Big Four" Armour & Co., Swift & Co., the Cudahy Packing Co. and Wilson & Co. into 14 separate and competing companies as follows: Armour and Swift each to be divided into five separate companies, and Cudahy and Wilson each to be di vided into two separate companies. MOVE HIT AS POLITICAL In addition, Clark seeks injunctive relief against the packers and their methods of operation. John Holmes, president of Swift, retorted that the suit was filed for political reasons in an attempt to "shift responsibility" for high prices. He said Swift has "not violated any law." George A. Eastwood, board chair man of Armour, said his company's meat profit last year was only 15 of a cent a pound, too small to be "re sponsible for the increase that has taken place in meat prices . . "He denied that Armour had "conspired" to divide livestock supplies or fix prices. Among the methods of allegedly suppressing competition, according to the complaint, are (1) Controlling the supply of meat which each company obtains for sale by controlling the amount of livestock each will purchase; (2) Utilizing uniform cost formulas for arriving at selling prices; (3) Selling at "loading" rather than "delivered" weights; and (4 Selling at substantially identical prices and terms of sale. WANTS FREE CHANNELS Clark's complaint alleges that the "Big Four" packers accounted for 58 percent of the cattle, 54 percent of the hogs, 68 percent of the calves and 79 percent of the sheep slaughtered under Federal inspection during the past decade. In announcing the suit Clark said that "no avenue must be overlooked to prevent the basic necessities of life such as food from falling into the hands of monopolistic groups."

President Chiang Kai-shek today called for austerity and hard work in China's "life and death struggle with the traitorous Communists." In a nation-wide address, Chiang castigated idlers, hoarders and speculators, warning them they must repent. The message coincides with a vigorous campaign to enforce the new economic decrees. "The majority of the people," he said, "though subsisting barely above the starvation level, are con tributmg money and energy and lives to fight the rebels. There are, however, some who, like parasites. do not work and produce, and others who, as speculators, are engaged in hoarding and manipulation." Chiang declared Jobs must be found for "refugees, loafers and un employed." Taft Says Truman Defies Labor Act CINCINNATI, O., Sept. 15 (UP). President Truman has encouraged "open defiance" of the Taft-Hartley labor law. Senator Robert A. Taft (R., O.), charged today. Taft derided the President's charge that he was guilty of improper conduct in approaching the National Labor Relations Board concerning the International Typographical Union (AFL( strike against Chicago newspapers. "President Truman's charge only shows that we have reached the silly season In politics." Taft said. ' INTERNAL AFFAIRS "The President says he does not expect to interfere in internal affairs of the NLRB. If he finds that any branch of the executive department is failing to do its duty, it is his duty to call them to task. "The truth is that President Ttu man, by the veto message accepted so largely from the Communist sym pathizer Lee Pressman, and by other public statements, has encouraged the open defiance of the law now engaged in by some of the more radical labor bosses."

German anti-Communist demonstrations in Berlin and the severe Russian sentences against German participants threatened to cause a new crisis tonight in East-West and Soviet-German relations. It was indicated that the Russians, disturbed over increasingly open German resentment of their policies, had embarked on a ruthless purge of unfriendly Germans. ANTI-REDS IN HIDING American sources said that more than 100 anti-Communist politicians, living in the Soviet sector, had gone into hiding because of an expected Russian purge of opposition party men. Some of those who have gone underground have escaped into Western sectors, others are. hiding in the homes of friends in the Russian sector. The American informants said they believed an all-out drive against anti-Communists would be started late this week. CURT DISMISSAL British authorities curtly dismiss ed as untrue a Russian protest against the big German demonstra tion last Thursday, and said that Soviet troops themselves provoked the disorders which resulted. Developments in the conflict were: 1 Maj. Gen. Alexander Kotikov, Russian commandant, angrily protested to the British command against Thursday's demonstration. In which he said "Fascistic bandits desecrated a Russian war memorial and a Russian flag. Kotikov demand ed punishment of the Germans, responsible and guarantees against further incidents. 2 A British official statement re plied that Russian troops themselves caused the, trouble by driving motor vehicles into packed crowds and fir ing weapons into the air. ILLEGAL TRIAL 3 American authorities charged that the Russians illegally were try ing a high German city official, Dr, Kurt Mueckenberg, head of the Berlin coal organization, apparently on sabotage charges. 4.

The Dutch Foreign Office announced today that Foreign Minister D. U." Stikker was leaving for Washington to discuss the "gen eral political situation and the de velopment of Communism in the Far East." Earlier he talked with Dr. Herbert V. Evatt. Australian Minister for External Affairs, who also met Dutch Prime Minister Willem Drees. in DAR Hall i Constitution Hall Monday night. i The association, which opened its centennial meeting in the hall that night, said It had been reported to them that the Ethiopian Minister, Ras H.

An association statement said that after the Incident, the Minister "left the hall." Constitution Hall is owned by the Daughters of the American Revolution, which has figured in controversies in the past because of its re fusal to rent the hall for concerts by Negro artists, except for charity af fairs. However, there was no indica tion in the scientists' statement to night that the DAR figured in the latest incident.

Th Air Force announced today that it had added 40 more C-54 cargo planes to the Berlin airlift, bringing to 145 the total number of transport involved in the sup ply operation. The announcement came shortly before Secretary of State George C. Marshall told a press conference he would welcome a little encourage ment about this country's relation with the Soviet Union. AIRLIFT A SYMBOL The Berlin airlift is the symbol cf what is wrong between the two countries. The United States is daily flying in the entire food, fuel and medical supply for that part of Ber lin which is under its control. The operation started when the Russians, in an apparent effort to force the U. S., Great Britain and France out of Berlin, blocked the rail lines" leading tc the German capital city. Berlin is a Four-Power island in a sea of Soviet-controlled territory: the United States did not secure a land supply corridor at the time it agreed to Four-Power control of the capital Since the original shut-off of rail communications, the situation ia Berlin has grown increasingly tense. In Moscow, negotiators for the C. S.. Great Britain and France have con-. ferred . with both Premier Josef Stalin and Foreign Minister Vyache- slav M. Molotov in an effort to get the Russians to withdraw the blockade. SECRET CONVERSATIONS The conversations have been pro ceeding for three weeks or more in an atmosphere of greatest secrecy. But the first news of conference results to date came, not from the State Department, but in the form of the Air Force announcement that additional cargo ships were being added to the airlift. This was taken to mean that Gen. Lucius B. Clay, U. S. military governor in Germany, saw no hope of abandoning the air lift as yet. Rear Adm. John P. Whitney, deputy chief of the Military Air Transport Service, told reporters on his return from a three-week overseas tour that the Berlin airlift had reached about 65 percent of its capacity. He guessed that it could be Continued on Page 10, Column 3 Marshall Urges Confidence in U.N. WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 (AP). Secretary of State George C. Marshall today called upon the American people to avoid letting the "passions of the moment" dim their faith in the United Nations. "A .genuine spirit of tolerance and understanding Is Uie first ingredient in making the kind of a world we want," Marshall told a meeting of the Federal Bar Association in the Justice Department. ' Marshall said the American people should not get discouraged over the long negotiations that have marked United Nations' sessions thus far because: "Potracted negotiations may be desirable as a poultice to draw some of. the fever out of the problem in order to permit recovery through peaceful methods of settlement."
