The official press bureau linked the underground members with "a certain western imperialistic power" but did not identify the Western power. Details of tne purported plot were 'announced after a secret trial at which six persons were condemned to death, 10' given life imprisonment and an unspecified number lesser prison terms. Ten of those tried were acquitted. The announcement termed mem- Iwrs of the group spies and terrorists and said they were tried on charges of high treason and spying on behalf of the Western power "with which they had been in contact." The government claimed its police had played a cat-and-mouse game with the alleged conspirators and waited until they were all set to begin the revolution before moving in to hao them. "" : ''- ExPolice Chief Condemned One of those sentenced to death was Josef Chnrvat, Identified by friends-as chief of the security police here during the first republic. The government said the political leader,of the planned putsch was Dr. Jaroslav Borkovec, identified as the brother of a former chief of the Prague police's criminal investigation section. His brother was ousted when the Communists tpok over the government in Pebrurarv ,1948. || Informed sources said those sentenced include army and police personnel, as well as civilians. The trial of the group was reported to have lasted several weeks in the prague state court. The govern- Note from Russia Accuses Tito of Working 'For Western Masters' LONDON, Aug. 30. (f) —Soviet Russia, in a new note to Belgrade, accused Premier Marshal Tito's Yugoslavia of working 'only on the instructions of its western masters." Tlie note was broadcast by the Moscow radio and recorded In London by the Soviet monitor It was the eighth in a series of increasingly bitter exchanges between the two feuding Communist countries. The Moscow note denied Yugoslav charges, made Aug. 20 that the Kremlin had double crossed Yugoslavia by abandon- Ing Yugoslav claims to Austrian territory at last June's conference of the Big Pour foreign ministers in Paris. ment said many of the accused pleaded guilty. A "large group" of conspirators was said to have been involved in the abortive putsch. Date of the attempted coup was not disclosed, but it was reported the group chose a bank holiday "when the working people were at home and unable to mount counter-action." The announcement said the group was attempting to "prepare an armed conspiracy aimed at crushing the people's democratic regime."

Top government officials said Secretary of state Acheson's strong support for Yugoslavia's application clearly foreshadows a favorable verdict. Acheson and Ambassador Cavendish Cannon in Belgrade are reported vigorously urging the Export-Import Bank not only to approve Tito's bid but to do it quickly. The Yugoslav dictator is said to be in need of quick economic help from the United States and other Western countries to help him weather the economic blockade now threatening to strangle his country. The Yugoslav government was disclosed last night to have applied formally to the bank for a credit of around S25.000.0SO needed to buy American machinery for its copper, lead and zinc mines. THo -Is reportea to nave turned to the bank, an American'govern merit agency, because he feels he cannot wait possibly six months for a credit' from the International Bank. This is the first time the Yugoslav government has turned to the United States government for a direct loan since Tito defied Moscow's orders some 15 months ago and split from the Russian bloc in Western Europe. No Opposition Seen Government officials familiar with the Yugoslav application said that thus far there has been no sign of opposition from Secretary of Defense Johnson. Export-Import bank officials declined to predict how they will treat the Yugoslav loan request. They said they are giving the matter "serious consideration" and that a decision should be forthcoming? shortly. But government officials connected with the National Advisory Council, which guides the bank's activities, said a loan to Yugoslavia would represent a "sound business proposition," besides fitting neatly into current American foreign policy. ^ Yugoslavia would be able to pay for the credit, they said by increasing shipments of strategic copper, lead, ilnc and chrome ore to the United States. Officials emphasized that Acheson Is under no illusions about Tito or his Communist dictatorship in Yugoslavia. .„„ .-- But both Acheson and President 37 1-4 Truman are reported to believe that -• - - It is vital to keep Tito alive and his country in fairly good economic shape N.

Cotton Acreage Measure Signed Act Paves Way for Production Controls Based on Referendum WASHINGTON, Aug. 30-M>)_ Presldenfc Truman has signed a bill providing the machinery for Southern and Western farmers to trim their cotton acreage. The program s intended to prevent sharp breaks In cotton prices in the .years ahead The new law authorises the secretary of agriculture to limit 1950 cotton plantings to 21,000,000 acres. This compares with an estimated 26,380,000 acres planted this year and 22,768,000 acres harvested In 1948. For the years beyond 1950, the legislation provides that the secretary can allot acreage to hold cotton production down to 10,000000 tales a year or at 1,000,000 bales under the total of the preceding year's combined domestic consumption and exports of cotton. Cotton production In 1943 was 14,626.000 bales, the highest In 10 years.-The agriculture Department estimates this year's crop will hit 14,800,000 bales. Fanners Must ApproTe The new Ia w provides, that the secretary can call lor a farmer referendum on cotton quotas when the total supply Is above normal. If two-thirds of those voting In the referendum appr'o« such quotal then the controlIe<S4tre«ge Is broken dovm among tfie states and -to the counties and ultimately to the Individual farmers, If they reject the acreage quotas the farmers will get no government price supports. Cotton farmers are expected to vote this fail on whether they want to come back under production controls, suspended during war and postwar years. A complicated formula is provided for acreage assignments. State and county allotments would be jased In 1950 and 1951 on a specialized formula, and thereafter on average acreage planted during the five preceding years. Special provision U made for trends In cotton production, giving special weight to increased planting in the West during the last three years. PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 30-WV-A gay task force of gaudily-dressed American Legionnaires began a 12- hour parade maneuver today to capture Philadelphia. Drums rolled, bugles blared. Strutting girls i n pretty costumes twirled batons. Martial times filled the air. So did confetti and ticker tape—and the cheering applause of a million Philadelphians and visitors. The Quaker City surrendered happily to the Invasion—the Legion's 31st annual convention parade. Hours before the march began, crowds gathered along the five-mile route. U.S. Military and Naval units led off the march directly behind the Legion's parade marshals. The crack 116-man Army band moved like a precision machine up Broid Street Hall and the reviewing to City stand. Paratroopers, WACS, Marines sailors and National Guardsmen stepped in unison to the martial music. The massed colors of the 48 states the District of Columbia, Alaska' Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Is-' lands and the Panama zone were carried by a battalion of military policemen. Before the parade ends, about midnight, more than 30,000 persons and some 160 drum and bugle corps will have tiled past the revelwfnR stand. Legion departments, proud of their state's history, displayed their favorite symbols—corn from Iowa "rebel yells" and beautiful girls' from Mississippi, and Texas sombreros. Rebel Planes Over Bolivia Bomb Airport LA PAZ, Bolivia, Aug. 30. (/P>— Two rebel planes today dropped mortar shells on the La Paz Army Airport and a nearby military cc4- ege. The revolutionists used mortar shells because they have no bombs, a government spokesman said. The shells did no damage, he added. The planes, DC-3 transports flew over La Paz Itself, but were driven off by anti-aircraft fire. Meanwhile the government began a draft of all citizens In a right of survival against the spreading rightist revolution. Sesenrtsts, 20 to 24, were called the colors in La Pax and orders (or mobilization have been lamed to all men 19 to 90. They will be called upon to fight Hie revolt against the middle-of- he road government which broke out in scattered section! Saturday and now controls all BoUTia's large itles except. La Par. Greatest government efforts so far have been directed against Cochabamba, a city of 90.000 southeast of La paz, where the rebels are strongly entrenched. Alrforce planes bombed tht town yesterday for the third time, but reports said they did little damage The raids terrorized the Inhabitants, however, and indignation against the act seems to have added new recruits to the rebellion. $4,000,000 Fir* Rog* t Through Big Warehomse SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 31—<;r>— A fire cawing an estimated 14000000 loss, raged for six hours today through a grocery warehouse of Safeway Stores, Inc. Division Manager a. H. Branlund said the block-square warehouse was worth $1,500.000. H« e»ttm»ted the value of groceries destroyed at around $3,000,000. More than 35 firemen were hurt but only four required hospltajita-' uon. .V ~.1WU.UUI * ItttC which the organization considered fair to both pickers and growers, and which will permit the grower a fair return on his work, Investment and risk. In announcing the recommendation, Ronnie F. Greenwell, secretary -manager of the group which has its central office here, declared: 'We are not a price fixing organization, but we are vitally concerned with the conditions affecting the welfare of the cotton producers of Missouri and the general agricultural economy of this area." Cites ISM Conditions The action by the group stemmed from a condition last year In which the price'of picking climbed to such a point that many, cotton farmers had very little Income left at the end of the season for their work, investment and risk. In many cases growers suffered severe financial losses, being unable to pay their production loans In full, even though Missouri produced a record- breaking crop of over half million bales. "One-fourth of the value of a bale of cotton had always been considered a fair price for harvesting it, and certainly the share-cropper and renter cannot afford to pay more since the cost of producing the crop to the picking stage this year has been extremely heavy," Mr. Greenwell stated. Pickers Get Fourth of Reiurn* "It is well known that on the basis of one-fourth of the value for picking, a tenant has only a fourth left after paying rent and dividing with the sharcropper. The association considered that the prospective prices for lint and cotton seed, u reflected in the new lower loan Ta.tea ^set by. the pov- einment (Sr this year's crop,' calls for a picking rate of not over $2.50 per 100 pounds, to equal one-fourth of the value of the crop." Pointing to past years when cotton harvest labor costs rose to high levels, Mr. Greenwell warned: "It Is not difficult to realize the disaster that will occur to merchants, banks and other lending agencies If the prime producer is not allowed an income sufficient to re-pay notes, mortgages and other accounts In addition replacing machinery used." While the association favors the employment of local people over Imported workers in the harvest of the crop. Mr. Greenwell disclosed that details had f>een worked out for bringing In a large number of Mexicans to help get the crop out if the need arises.

Compromise Is Sought For Arms Plan Okay WASHINGTON. Aug. 30.

He withheld details of tiic proposal, however, until a group of Republican and Demorcstlc Senators from both committees have had chance to study It. Connnlly Is head of the foreign relations group. He told reporters that one of the things the compromise deals with Is the amount to be provided for military aid to European nations in the Atlantic Pact. President Tnmi'an asked $1.100,950,000 for that pur[rosc. Senator Vandenburg of Michigan, top-ranking Republican on the Foreign Relations Committee, wants to hold It to an even $1.000.000,000. Connally named himself a n d three other members of the combined committees to study the plan and report to the rull group. The other three arc Vandenburg, Chairman Tydings (D-Md) of the Armed Services Committee; Gurney (R-SD). and Senator ui iiey ut-OUJ. Connally said that unity on the arms aid program Is "not only of high importance domestically but of high importance to the peace of the world." "We cannot afford to let our prospective enemies believe there is a serious division In t h e United States," he declared. "That's their whole strategy—to create division."

Today's Business Mirror: Industrial Pace Quickened Output Up after 8-Month Lull BT Sam Diwion NEW YORK, Aug. 30—Wy—for the first time since last November, the wheels In America's mills and factories are turning faster. After eight steady months of fall- Ing output, the Industrial pace has quickened In August, the Federal Reserve Board said today. Flanking this pleasant news are reports of Increasing steel production, record auto output, reviving department store sales in New York City, and return of workers to refrigerator plants where a spurt In orders Is boosting output. Vacation Came Drop The August revival should bring Industrial production back to about the rat* of June, the Federal Reserve Boirct jays. The sharp drop in July vu chalked up largely to t postwar development the board hasn't taken Into account when adjusting !u Index to seasonal factors—the spread of the vacation habit through industry. Many factories were closed down part of the time in July for vacations. As a result, the Index took a •steep drop, from 169 In June to 162 In July. The Index, using the 1935-38 average as 100, reached Its »ak last November at 195, and then started skidding. The other villain In July was the plunge In steel production. The steel mills operated at 82 per cent of capacity during June, but drop- Jed to an average of 11 per cent of capacity during July. Steel Ovtpnt Bock Here, too, the board notes happy days in August, reporting steel out- Jut back to an average of 83 percent of capacity. The gains Increased as the month went along. The American Iron and Steel Institute estimates that this final week will find the mills running at 86,1 per cent of capacity, their best rate since mid-June. How rmtch of this Is due to a real business pick-up and how much a customers stocking up In fear of a steel strike next month, no one will s»y lor sure. Price cuts tod hot weather brought homcov,ners into a appliance store in sufficient quantity to cut refrigerator inventories, and output in the plants is being stepped up again. The National" Appliance and Radio Healers' Association Is even talking about the short supply of the cooling b'lxis. It says they'll be scarce until October, when production will have caught up again. Department Store S.ilrs Up New York department stores re- port sales last week were six per cent above the like week in 1913. It has bwn 20 weeks since they cnnld rr|v>rt liny gain over the previous y^rir. The board makes no guess as to the trend In August, but many businessmen expect that this month's Moires will show that sales of mamifacturlni; companies picked up this month, along with their production schedules.
