PAOI FOURTEEN International Newt Roundup British foreign Secretary Looks on Financial Talks As Part of One World Unity By tbe Awocialtd frrm Britain's Foreign Secretary, Ern«( Bevin, looks on the three-nation financial talk.? In Washington u » means "to win the struggle for on« world." Bevin and Chancellor of the Exchequer Sir Stafford Cripps open th«4r talks with United State and Cuuditn representative* today in »n »Metnpt to find a »olution for Britain'* dollar-short- economy. Washington observers said th« Briton* will seek American agreement to speed up the spending on strategic materials like rubber and tin which Britain holds. The British leaders are also expected to ask the United states to ease an Anglo-American loan agreement provision requiring Britain to purchase large quantities of American goods. The British are probing n way to •ell more goods in the American market and buy for dollars. At the talks Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snrder is carrying the ball for the United Slates. He is teamed with Secretary of State Dean Acheson and Economic Cooperation Administrator Paul Hoffman. In a speech before the Trades Union Congress in Bridlington, England, Prime Minister Clement Attlee attacked critics who he said were Irving to make ''bad blood" between Britain and the United States. He said: "In dealing with the problems of the postwar world, Britain and (he United States have been partners." He said Britain could not solve her problems "in isolation." He expressed confidence in Britain's representatives at the Washington conferences. In Moscow, Soviet economic writers predicted that the British pound and other European currencies would be devalued. Tlie first freely elected German parliament since pre-Hit]er days convened in Bonn, capital of the West German state. The Btmdcs- rat, upper house of the Federal Republic, was the first branch of the new government to begin its work. The Bundestag, the lower house, opens this afternoon. The communist drive southward in China appeared retarded today. At Canton, the national defense ministry said its forces had recaptured several villages on the approaches to the Cflntan-Haknov,* railway. At ti Paz, Bolivia, the government said the 12 day old rightist rebellion has been all but cruslied. President Memberto Urriolagoitia said Santa Cniz is the only rebel strongpoint left. Parents Organize Council at County Training School The Mississippi Comity Training School started classes ye.steiday with an enrollment of 30 pupils In th« SIT grades, Geneva Harraway, principal, said today.

Walter Anderson wax elected president, Ellen Overall, vice-president, Earsley Northern, secretary, Liude Harrta, assistant secretary DOLLAR TALKS Continued from page 1. of free and democratic peoples." Bevin gave his views In New York and he declined to amplify them uix>n reaching Washington at 6:10 ajii. (Eastern Standard 'lime) today. A reporter told him that Canadian Finance Minister Abbott said yesterday that Canada would be glad to see Britain Riven the right to spend its Marshall Plan dollars anywhere. Bevin sullied over this Idea for a moment, said he had no comment but then added, "it sounds rather good, anyway." Want American Sales In three power talks starting in a fifth floor conference room at the state department at 11 a.m. EST the British leaders are expected to seek American agreement to speed up sending of dollart for strategic materials such as tin and rubber. Al the same time they want to relax a 1946 Anglo-American loan agreement provision so that Britain can increase discrimination against buying American goods. These and other measures, vrhlch American officials are expected to receive sympathetically, are designed to (U increase'the flow of badly needeii dollars to Britain and (2) enable (he British to curtail spending of the dollars and gold they now have. Bevin was ready to argue, should the point come up, that the troubles which beset Biitain are not due to its socialist government programs. He was somewhat edgy when a newsman asked him last night about charges that British socialism has bungled the nation's economic affairs. "Unintelligent people always look for a scapegoat," he replied. And later: "We are not here to blame anybody and we're not going to allow anyone to blame us." 'Hie third party in the conference.'! here—-which will go on for at least- a week—is Canada. Canada is one of the biggest customers of both the United States and Britain. She is lied to both'coun- tries by economic and mil- itary-ix>litical arrangements. Secretary of the Treasury Snv- cler, who will carry the ball for the United States throughout the series or meetings, promised a public report on the first session (probably lo be given out about 1:3o p.m. EST) ns well as periodic disclosures on further sessions. Secretary of State Acheson and BOA Chief Paul Hoffman are serving with Snyder on the American delegation. Canada Is represented by Abbott, minister of finance, and Lester H. Pearson, minister (or external affairs. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)

Girls Overcome ' Museum Rule by Trading Clothes CHICAGO — M>>— Bathing beach attire Is banned at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, So the museuin added a stock of i half-dozen wrap-on skirts for women visitors wearing bathing ault» o r shorts. Bathers from nearby Jackson Park beach on Chicago'! South Side frequently entered the museum In scanty wear. Mrs. Martha McGrew, of th« museum staff, said that, although officials aren't against such brevity, they didn't consider the museum * proper place to wear play clothing. But on one occasion the spare skirts weren't needed. Girl guides at the museuin entrance halted six teenage girls. Children under 12 are permitted to enter wearing brief apparel. One girl, Mrs. McGren- said, was overage. A younger girl was appropriately 'dressed. None would enter unless all were admitted. The girls went into a huddle. They.«tL appeared and soon returned.
