TUESDAY, MAY 9, 1950 Russia Proposes to Okay City - Wide Berlin Election If Allies Remove Troops BERLIN, May 9. (AP)-Russla*. says she will agree to a city-wide election In Berlin if Allied 'troops moved more than 103 milts back to West Germany. There appears little chance that Soviet condition will be accepted. , Along with four other demands calciilflied (o give East German Communists the upper hand m the elections, a Russian note last night proposed withdrawal of all occupation troops from (he city. Russian trootxs would need to move unlv to Rerun's outskirts. American, B'.it- ish and French soldiers would have to go to the Soviet zone bonier on Elbe River, more than 100 miles to the Reactions Are Coo] Guarded but cool first reactions io the Russian were registered by two of the three Western commandants who three weeks ago proposed the city-wide ballot. MaJ. Gen Maxwell D. Taylor, the American occupation chief here, said he found "little encouragement" in the Russian note. The British Commandant. MnJ. Gen. Geoffrey K. Bourne, termed the reply "a very roundabout way of saying 'no.'" Taylor added he found "some consolation" that "even the Soviets cannot be silent before the deep desire of Berlin to be reunited. Bourne said he was glad to sec some response to the Western Appeals for free elections. .May Sleet Today An American spokesman Indicated the three Western commandants might meet today to see if any of the Russian conditions could be accepted. 'he Soviets demanded, In addl- to the troop withdrawal: 1. Scrapping of the occupation law now in force in West Berlin. Under it the Western powers gave their occupation zones self-government except in matters of foreign policy and security. 2. Permission for all Comrmn.lst- laspired East Berlin organizations including the Red "National Front" to function freely In the Western sectors. Boundary Abolition 8.

Marshall Plan staff has been working at this problem of Increasing imports from Europe longer than anyone else. The encouraging thing now. he says, is that a few enterprising European exports and American Importers are beginning to tc"-t the U. S. market, to see what it will take. Britain Ready With Her Bid The British auto show In New York is a prime example. The British hope they can sell $50.003,000 worth of automobiles In America.

San Franckco has plans for permanent foreign trade fair. A year ago. the Germans held an exposition of their postwar merchandise In New York. The French and Belgians have similar exhibits on the road In the U. S now, touring principal market centers. The Italians are trying to get their merchandise show over before very long. Planning all these imng* takes time. Six months were required to plan, order, buy, ship and put the Dutch merchandise on display at Philadelphia Gimbcl's. it will 'take months more, and maybe years, to build up buying habits and a sustained market for what The Netherlands has to export.
