EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, MAY 14, 1949 arley to Clear Berlin Confusion •"Big Four to Discuss "Remaining Details Of Blockade Lifting BERLIN. May 14. OT—A four- po»er conference was called today to seek to clear away some of the confusions and differences remaining as R hangover since the lifting of the Berlin blockade. The economic chiefs ot all four military governments In Berlin icheduled the meeting. A major n£)ect before them is the Russians' insWence on reviving old East- West trade agreements, suspended when the Soviet blockaded Berlin. The Western allies do not dispute the Russian claim that- the aKree- ments still are valid—but they do contend that- the agreements arc outmoded. For Instance, there Ss no way lo translate West marks into Fast marks, and vice versa, the Westerners hold, leaving barter theli only visible balance method of inter-zonal trade. Unconfirmed German press reports said the East and West German zonal economic authorities would meet here Monday. The German people, who had " hoped the lifting of the. blockade would bring swift end to their business depression and rationing, seem destined for disappointment. Pood and money both are scarce, and the Germans' own economic experts say It probably will be some lime be/ore the situation Improves much. "The people got a promise today, however, that cigarettes would be removed from the rallon list June 1. Cites Major Problems 0. S. Curran, Berlin sector chief of the Commerce and Industry rue- lion of the U. S. Military Government, gave this picture of two major problems which beset German economy: 1. The money shortage. .The per capita availability In West Berlin is 250 murks '$75). not much more than half the reported buying power in Eastern Berlin, which Russian controls. "If goods arc taken off ration." Curran said. "German economic officials fear that people from the .East, with more money, will clean out the slocks, and that West Berlin will be left short. The East sector and the East zone arc regarded as deficit areas in the ne- cesstttes ol lite." 2. Shortage of supply. •The lifting of the blockade took ns riack to the status of things as oTMarch 1, 1948," Curran explained'.''."Obviously there has been no chance for any stockpiling of note. And it will be a slow process." .Elaborating the financial prob- krri>he said virtually all West Berlin Industries exhausted their capital . reserves to save their plants Irom ruin during' the blockade.
