(UP)—Forced into a showdown by Secretary of SUile James F. Byrnes, the file; Four foreign ministers imisl decide today whether ( o call a 21-nnllon peace conference this summer. The decision may make or ruin this big lour meeting. Byrnes, exasperated by V. M. Molotov's slalling tactics, 'brought the sluggish big ioiir meeting lo a cril- ical point lute yesterday. He served notice in irate tones that he would press for a decision on the full- dress conference today. "I want a decision on It tomorrow, one way or the other," Byrnes said. The four ministers arranged a plenary session at -I p.m. to ncl on Byrnes virtual ultimatum. Britain and France ngrce will: the United slates (Jiat a conference should be summoned in July. Couched in Byrnes" demand was the threat or a separate peace treaties by the western powers Ir Russia clings to her rejection of a 21- nalion conference until the Dig Pour reach complete agreement. At present they are at odds on Trieste and numerous other issues. The conclusion generally drawn from Molotov's tactics is lhat Russia does not want a peace conference this summer. A heavy majority of the"21 nations would be aligned with Hie: Anglu-Aincricaii vio'.vs on most disputed points. Byrnes undoubtedly is aware of the dangerous possibililies of separate action by Russia and the wcs- tenv powers.--But he finally decided to force a climax in Ihe situation that has been developing for two weeks. His barbed clash with Mololov came at Ihc end of three and a half hours of fruitless discussion and by-passing of Italian and Balkan treaty questions. Byrnes raised the peace conference issue. Mololov -suggc-sleel they discuss it afler couiplcling discus<ion of unsettled issues. The American Icaelcr replied they might never reach the conference question jr. they kept discussing and pos"i^i- iiig all their disputes. Malotov aiis- .jeslcd a Sunday discussion.

Chinese Policy Defended by U.S Soviets are Charged With Violation of .Potsdam Declarations. WASHINGTON, iel'uilri 20. (UP) — The United Slates,coupled a vigorous defense of its China' policy today with a charge that Soviet Russia has failed to live up to the PoLsclam surrender terms for Japan. This development followed 10 days e>f intensive criticism of Amr.rican policy in China—especially by ho!h right and left elements in that country. Acting Secretary of Stale Dean Achcson Issued the American reply late yesterday al a news confeicnc.'r. He issued a formal, carefully-worded statement and then discussed American policy in Ihc Ori'.nn with reporters for nearly an hour. His charge against Ihc Russians was indirect and incidental to his overall statement on China. But significantly II came only two days after iGcorge Achcson, Jr.. American chairman of the Allied Com-.- cil for Japan, made the same charge in Tokyo. The Potsdam declaration, ir-sued on July 25. 1345, by U. S., Britain and China and lalcr adhered to by Russia, made Hits promise as part of its terms of surrender lo Japan: "The Japanasc military forces, after being completely disarmed, shall be permitted to return to their homes with the opportunity lo lead peaceful and productive lives." Achcson revealed that the U. S had just abnul completed lhal job in China proper; lhat about 1,000,000 Japanese soldiers have been repatriated, and thai only about 100000 remain in China. "What about Manchuria?" Acheson was asked. Manchuria Is the /one in which the Russians acccpt- jed the Japanese surrender anel where an estimated 1.000.000 Japanese troops were at the end or the war. Achcson saitl lie doubted whether any Japanese Iroops remain in Manchuria now thai the Red Army is out. But he was certain that none of those Japanese soldiers had been repatriated to Japan as promised In the Potsdam declaration. Prom olhcr sources it was learned lhat Edwin W. Paulcy, the President's reparations expert, saw no Japanese troops in Manchuria during his recent visit. The only conclusion that can bo drawn in the absence of a Itusstan explanation is that the Japanese armies In Man- cnuria have been taken to Siberia But Achcson's major concern was with what he described as Ihc misunderstanding of American policy in China. For 50 years, he said, Ihc cardinal principle of American policy In China has been to crealc a free milled and democratic China. That is even more Important now than DPf»re tliu wnr.
