Byrnes did not mention tbe Soviet plan for Germany In his radio address Monday night. II, was the plan submitted at the recent Paris foreign ministers meeting by Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov which opposed dividing ov federalizing Germany and favored allowing German Industry to build itself up to higher levels than planned a', present. Authoritative sources said Byrnes considered Molotov's statement o" Germany as designed lor propa- Kanda purposes In seeking support ot the German people for Soviet policies. But Byrnes was represented as feeling thai ir the Russians sci, away with their "propaganda" it uould be one of the most remarkable achievements of modern times. Soviets Contradict Selves These sources pointed out that •uhilc Molotov was making a bid with one hnnd for German support, by appealing to German opposition '(> ii divided or semi-agricultural rninuy, with his other hand he was insisting upon Germany's payment of S10.000,000,000 In reparations to Russia.

Construction Rushed on New First Christian Church Following Laying of Cornerstone Heirens Expects To Get Life Term Murder Confession To Be Reduced to Writing, Official Soys CHICAGO, July 17. (UP)—William Heir-ells. 17, wns reported today lo be ready to give n full ami complete confession lo three of the Nation's most shocking crimes — ncludlng the premeditated kldnap- slaying of six-year-old Suzanne Degnan. It was understood thru an agrec- ment had been reached bd'.iccn the state's attorney's office ami defense counsel whereby Heiren- would confess the three murders in return tor a recommendation by the state for a life sentence, Instead of the electric chair. Tiie understanding, details ol Mhlch were mapped out at nn extra-ordinary conference last biin- <1ay between defense attorneys and Slate's Attorney William J. Tiir-hy. reportedly hiul been held up by Tuohy's insistence that the 17- year-old college youth be imprisoned for the rest of his "natural" lite.

It was agreed then that the basis of reparations should be percentage division of capital equipment rather than dollar value. But now Molotov has raised the question again and Byrnes, at Paris earlier this month, countered his demand with the charge lhat Russia already haa.taken an .estimated • $14,000,000,060 •••tfcrtu ot equipment out of Germany. Tlic reparations Russia is seeking now in addilloa would be from future production. Plans Return to Paris Byrnes will return to Paris next, week for the 21-nation peace conference on Axis satellite treaties which opens July 29 in Paris' Lux r / embourg Palace. But if he has Ills i way there will be no "big name" members on the U. S. delegation. Sens. Tom Connally, D., Tex., and Arthur H. Vnndcnbcrg, II.. Afich., who advised him during tnc last two foreign ministers meetings in preparation of the dralt treaties. Mill not reutrn for the beginning o: the conference. They will go back lo Paris only alter the otll' nations have had a chance to make their recommendations and the Big Four begins to consider those amendments. Byrnes would like to be supported on his delegation primarily with his chief aides who already familiar with Ihc treaties nnd tne problems involved in them. There will be no repetition of the San Francisco conference delegation 3O far Us Byrnes is concerned. Byrnes was represented today to be extremely pessimistic about the .possibility of any early agreement on an Austrian treaty. He was said to bn convinced that the Russians' game is to delay work on the ^; Austrian Ircaly until the German Wi treaty is considered. And Molotov already has slated that he Ihoiiglit • that would be a long time. Livestock 'inally w'orkcd out, it was uiuiei stood that defense attorneys igreed to a sentence of life imprisonment for the slaying* and additional sentence of 0!) years lor I the burglaries with which Heirens is charged—thus, assuring that he v. ill die in prison. The confessions, originally schcd_ ulde to be taken today and to- ifiorrow, were not - expected now for two ro three more days because of "publicity" connected with tlic case. To Call Grand Jury Heircns' parent. 1 ;, Mr. an<l Mrs eorge Heirens, were said to have idvised the attorneys to do '".vhat- cvcr is best." Earlier. Slate's Attorney Tuohy had said lhat he "definitely" would ?lace evidence before a inland jury n an effort to obtain indictments l charging Heirens with the Deginin; murder and the "lipstick" slaying Of ex-Wave Frances Brown. However, Tuohy said he needed 'more information" on the knilc slaying last Summer of Mrs Josephine Ross before it \vould be in shape for the jury. Heirens, who has been charged formally with 2-1 burglaries and five assault sduring a fantastic dual career as a fun-loving, religious college student and a prin.tive. maddened criminal, was disc oscd by the United Press Monday to ' admitted the three murders. The admissions were made orally, and it was learned from reliab>..' sources that defense attorneys were continuing efforts to trade a full, written confession for a life sentence, instead of the electric cSiair. Touhy was careful not to coin- mil himself \vhether'the stale would seek to try Heirens in the absence of a written confession. Asked when he would seek Indictments in the Brown and Dtg- nan killings. Tuohy replied. "I don't know." He said he could lioc nswcr the question "at this time."
