CAP)—Andrei Gromyko is going home !rom the San Francisco conference with Russia's worst postwar diplo ma tic defeat on his record—and with ammunition In his pocket for a new wrecking campaign against the Japanese Peace Treaty. American diplomats, winding up their affairs in the conference city today, predicted Russia will do its utmost to undermine popular support lor the treaty with a massive propaganda attack throughout Asia nnd the Far East. Gromyko, who left by train for New York yesterday, prepared the ammunition for that assault in his speeches and actions at the peace conference—notably by his charges of American "dictation" and his repeated forecasts of .a "new war" in the Orient. He also made much of Red China's exclusion.

(/P(— A British and an American delegate to the Japanese Peace Conference are not agreed on the probability of a separate peace treaty between Japan and Communist China. Kenneth C. Younger, chief British spokesman at last week's conference, declared in a radio broadcast last night that such a treaty is "inevitable." Twenty four hours earlier, also in a radio broadcast, America's ambassador at large and chief architect of the Japanese Peace Treaty, John Foster Dulies, said a treaty between Japan and Red China is "neither probable nor necessary." ' Great Britain recognizes the Chinese Communist regime. The United States does not. Prohibition Cited Dulles pointed out th at u nder terms of the treaty signed here Saturday by defeated Japan and 48 nations which technically v/ere at war with her, Japan is prohibited from entering into any treaty giving any other nation a more favored position than the United States. Although Younger sees a Japanese-China treaty as "inevitable," he said it may not come "for ten or perhaps even 20 years," At any rate. Younger said, no one can rule out the possibility of "a. commercial arrangement , . . ant!' take' coliecUve""security I which might lead to a political ar:s, Secretary of State Dean rangement between Japan and the L and Japanese Premier mainland of Asia. . ." t ' de- Younger said the treaty signed sign- here "says, ; In effect, that the even- Japan. Presumably this would embody provisions which Gromyko advanced here in his vain efforts to get the British-American sponsored pact rewritten. Forty-eight nations signed the peace treaty with Japan in a 63- i« inu t e c eremon y Saturday. For three tense days of debate Gromyko had cried his warnings of war and had tried to get acceptance of amendments which would have rendered Japan defenseless when the treaty becomes effective. But when the document was put on the table for signing the United States scored a clean sweep. Not one nation was held back by Gromyko's arguments. The number of signers considerably exceeded the pre-conference American estimate of perhaps 44 signers. State Department officials were especially pleased that both Pakistan and Indonesia accepted the treaty: they had been uncertain and their influence in Asia Is of great importance. Offsetting this gain IB the fact that India, with great Asian prestige, did not attend. However; the Indian mission In Tokyo announced yesterday India, is ready to end its state of war with Japan when the treaty becomes effective.

McPeek said Arkansas farmers had 2,261,000 acres under cultivation as of Sept. 1. This is about 4.2 per cent below the acreage that was planted in cotton last spring. Weather Is Harmful Bad weather during the early spring summer months caused the reduction in acreage. This year's yield is forecast at 350 i pounds of cotton to the acre, seven pounds above the 1940-49 ten year # ;erage. However, it is under the state's record crop ol 194fl, In that year Arkansas farmers produced a total 1 of L982.000 bales of cotton. The averagfl acre yield was 412 pounds per acre.

Then the officer unzipped the pilot's flyiiiK suit, saw a Chinese officer's uniform, and gasped the equivalent of: "My God. I've killed one of our Russian brothers."

Army sources said unofficially tonight they have reliable but not conclusive evidence that Russian pilots have been Hying some of the MIGs In- battles against the United Nations.
