"The Reynolds Japs Fear for 305,000 pissing' Persons In Soviet as Red Figures Show Discrepancy BLyTHEVTLLE 'fARKJ COURIER NEWS ^ Wctures and Tut By RICHARD c. FERGUSON' NBA Staff Correspondent TOKYO — (NBA) — Four years have passed since the Japanese surrendered to the Allies, and Gen. Douglas MacArlhur thinks the Japanese have fulfilled the surrender terms and dc ve a peace treaty. But before Japan can sign articles with Russia, there is a little matter still to be cleared up. There are some 400.000 Japanese prisoners still in Russian hands, by MacArthur's staff estimates. The Soviet, on the other hand, says It holds only 95.000. and that these will be repatriated by November. When the slight discrepancy — 305 000 persons— was called to Russia's attention, there was at first "no comment." Later. Moscow said that the 95.000 figures does not include civilian internees. \ But. in Japan, it makes no difference to mothers and wives and offspring whether their men are civilians or not they just want them home. And they've stepped up a barrage of letters to MacArthur's Allied Council for Japan demanding action. The Council |,ai Annt all it cnuld.

(API—Thc dispute leading to the Missouri Pacific strike Is complex. Wages and hours in general are not an issue. The argument is over various rules affecting tlie railroad's operating employes—engineers, firemen, conductors and other trainmen. The railroad interprets the rules one way. The four operating brotherhoods disagree with this interpretation in 282 cases. These grievances by the employes involve an estimated $3,000,000. they were shocked and saddened by the plight of displaced persons said Dr. Guy Suavely, director of the Association of American colleges. And they were alarmed, particularly in the Middle East and India by smouldering national hatreds and the threat of further conflict 'If we hadn't realized it before this trip convinced us the world Is In a turmoil," Suavely told a reporter. "The trouble between the Hindus and the Moslems, continuing In lhe wake of the massacres a! the time of partition, has filled the cities of India and Pakistan with starving refugees. . "On a much smaller scales there is the conflict between the Arabs and the Jews.
