Leaders of the 5,000 striking trainmen said they planned no meeting today wllh Thompson and charged him with responsibility for breaking off conferences. 'It's his responsibility," said R. E Davidson, spokesman for the brotherhoods. "We have decided we are in no particular hurry now. We've pleaded conscientiously for him to g«t down to business by negotiating our claims. "Millions are at stake for the railroad, and yet he is letting those millions go by (he board rather than negotiate claims that amount to less than »3,000,000."

Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Y. Vlshinsky is choosing to make the general Soviet policy statement in the assembly in the next few days—after hearing the Western powers. Bevia Speaks at Dinner British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin said last night that the western powers were determined to see that atomic weapons were not used in destroying mankind. He spoke at a dinner given U.N. dela- gates by New York City officials. Bevin said the old League of Nations broke down because one of two nations thought their war weapons were so advanced that they could conquer the world. He added "We shall take care now that no nations shall be under the delusion that they can get so advanced that they can use their advanced position to destroy the world. On the other hand, we shall never use our advences to destroy them." The assembly convened at Flushing Meadows to debate 72 subjects m an effort to settle some of the world's gravest problems. It opened on a note of cautious optimism with top delegates irom Russia and the Western powers graciously shaking hands before the cameras. Brig. Gen. Carlos P.

Under the affirmative ballot system, boxes will appear after each candidates name and following the "for" and "against" choices were bond Issues are to be decided. . Voters will place an "X" In the box representing their choices. No- Ihlng is to be crossed out. Under the old system, voters crossed out the names of candidates they opposed and either the "for" or "against" on election Issues. What was not crossed out was the voter's a duplicate ballot, a of the lower part choice. Instead of small portion _ , of the new ballot Is perforated. On this slip, election clerks write the r.rimber opposite the voters' name on the list of qulaliflcd electors made up at the polling places as electors cast their ballots. Both portions of the ballot also have a number alrcadj printed on them. If 3,000 ballots are printed, these numbers rim from 1 to 3,000. Before being Lwued to voters, however, these ballots are shuffled so that they »re no longer in num- erica! order. This assures „ „„.ret ballot since the voters list number and ballot number will no longer coincide. torn off Placed In S »P 's whc " 't. 13 cast and in the a separate ballot box same manner the old duplicate ballots were cast.
