HW EMBER if, 1W8 Western Allies to Retain Broad Authority Over W. German Affairs n*/ GEOKGE ROITLTWflfln AIU.J . . »_» ...... CASK.)' COURIER NEWS _, HOULTWOOD BONN, Germany, Nov. 27. (/»>)— An Allied source said today the Western Allle» will retain broad authority over We»t German affairs —Including foreign relation*—under the revised occupation italute to b* published *oon. The new document defining the powers of the occupation forces will be published as soon ai the West German government agreed to € are materials for war purposes d to take over the debts of Hil. ''» defunct Reich. It has been revised according to decisions made by the three Western foreign ministers last September in New York. The allied source said, the basic authority of the occupation powers will remain Intact. The three- nation allied high'commission will still be the supreme authority over the federal government. Although the Western powers now are pressing' the Germans to contribute military lorce^ to aid In Western defense, West', Germany will remain a country under occupation by virtue of military conquest. The occupation statute' revisions are still officially secret, but German newspapers have been predicting for week's that they will prove disappointing (o the German public. The Germans have been campaigning for a more sweeping repeal of allied powers. West Gorman Chancellor Konrad Adenauer feels his campaign for German contribution to European* defense has been injured by retention of the occupation based on conquest. The Allies will keep the right to take back any powers they have granted the Germans if they con, sider it necessary for security, lo preserve a democratic government, or to carry out international agree,, merits of [he'three occupation powers. ^^ Major Changes Listed ^pAllied sources say' 'the major •changes in the occupation statute will be these: Foreign affairs- Allied powers over conduct of Western Germany's foreign affairs will remain. But. the Germans will be allowed to set up a foreign office and conduit diplomatic relations with friendly nations of the West. Diplomatic relations with Soviet satellite countries will be forbidden. The Allies will reserve 'the right to review International agreements. No German diplomats wil be accredited . to London, Paris, or Washington. Western Germany's relations with the occupying powers will continue' to be handled through the Allied High Commission. • ' Internal affairs— The paragraph in the present •tatute providing "control over >n- ternational action, only to the minimum extent necessary to ensure the use of funds, foods, and other supplies h such a manner as to reduce 1 to a minimum the need -for external assistance ' to ii'Germany'^will be struclTout, .. <fl federal and state laws will come into force as soon as 'they are promulgated by German authorities. Formerly there was a period of 21 days |n which the Allies could disapprove legislation. The Allies will retain, however, the right to repeal or annul laws they regard inconsistent with Allied legislation or which constituted "serious threat to the basic aims of the occupation.*' Amendments to the constitution "I Western Garmany will still require allied approval until a German supreme court is set up. The Allies will jive up control o( foreign trade and exchange except for: 1. Supervision ot trade In strategic materials with Iron Curtain countries for security reasons. 2. Ensuring that German trade Is conducted in accordance with the general agreement on trades and tariffs until west Germany is a party to that agreement and has assumed its obligations. 3. Ensuring that the German Federal Government observes the principles .nd practices of the International monetary fund agree- vAtnt. The exchange rate will be controlled by the Allies until Germany has become a member of Ihs fund and satisfactorily assumes obligations regarding the exchange ' rale. 4. Providing for orderly settlement of pre-war foreign debts and repayment r>f postwar Allied economic aid. Deeoncentration y »f Industry Powers providing for the decon- ccntraUon. of industry will be Ve- llnqulshed upon completion of the Allied program for breakinc iip the* huge German concentration* of economic power—the breakup and reorganization of Ihe coal and «t««l Industry, the, I. d. p»rben Chemical Combine, the motion picture Industry and four big banks. Powers in the field of decarteltz- atlou will be relinquished when a satisfactory German law replaces allied legislation. Displaced persona and refugi Allied reponsibillty for' displaced persons remainln» in Germany and for the admission of refugee* lo the federal Republic will lapse on passage of suitable German laws. The Allies will retain their power lo keep Germany disarmed, to prohibit certain industries and research activities for security reasons-and to prohibit German operation ot Aircraft. They also will keep the right to secure the protection, prestige and security of the Allied forces, dependents, employes and representatives the right lo charge the Germans [or the occupation costs will remain.

Reserve units of Americans, Brit- , nc ' Turks were rushed up to ish r bolster a sagging 30-mile eastern section of the winding 80-mile front stretching Inland from the Yellow Sea, The front ruiis from 40 lo 60 miles south of the Manchurlan border.

Correspondent Letf Erickson said the American divisions stopped the second night attacks In the center of the line after earlier withdrawals of se»*erpl miles. East Situation Not Clear The situation of the eastern flank, manned by the ROK .Seventh, Eighth and Sixth Divisions, was not clear. Fishtlng withdrawals of four lo 11 miles In Ihe ROK sector were reported Sunday. Field dispatches indicated heavy allied casualties. An indirect censorship settled over operations as a security measure. In Tokyo, General MacArthur's spokesman said the counter-blows were expected. He asserted that the TJ.N, offensive, which M?cArthur hi>ped u'ould end the war by Christmas, halted "lemporarily" but "is continuing." The spokesman described Sunday's withdrawals as limited and added that, in any general advance, the foremost spearheads can be expected to be pushed back. That's what is happening now, he said. But he declined to elaborale on what was meant by limited withdrawals. Correspondent Whitehcad said the "reversal in battle fortunes came with startling suddenness and the Eiehth Army is hatlling-lo hold the southward surge of Red troops.' 1 "There is no chance of offensive action on this front until the Red attack has been halted and a firm new line established." he added. Only In the northrast were Allied advances reported. But Red resistance in some sectors was stiffening. In the north-central sector, D.S. Marines drove westward from the big Changjin power reservoir toward a Red redougt in snow-mantled , mountains."^ It was too early to see whether, and tf> what extent; the Marine drive would help U.N. forces falling back on the northeast front.

Wj—# Discoveries about onemla by, the College of Medicine of the University of Utah should ease the r«- :ovi-ry of Ihe GI wounded in Korea. This trouble Is known as the 1 Anemia of Infection, H is common in most, persons who are stele for more limn a month, In Korea the proportion subject to tills anemia is the bleliest In American military history because the death rate Irom wounds is the lowest. That leaves more men lo lake he slow road lo recovery and to face anemia of Infection. The anemia findings were described today by Dr. Maxwell M. Winuobc, professor and head of the Department of Medicine. This ajiemla Is lack of n full supply of red blood corpuscles, iron makes the red corpulscles. In the anemia the Utah scientists found that Iron was depleted In the plasma, the water-colored part of Wood. Iron Sllll In Body Strangely enough, however, (here was no lobs of iron from Ihe body. The Iron that had been In the plasma merely had left Iherc and gone Into storage in llvyglupletn and other tlssuus. lion <vas given to these patients, uoth by mouth ami by Injection dlrecdy Into the blood stream. When fed, the iron failed lo go into the plasma, uul went to storage, When Injected directly into the blood and plasma, the iron promptly left for the slorchou.-os. No reason for this behavior of iron was found. But it was discovered thai [he v iron returned to the plasma automalicnlly whenever the Infection was cured. This, Dr. win trade said, changes some current methods of treating this kind of anemia. No medicine of any kind, Hot even the liver anrt vitamins which cure pernicious anemia, "have nny elfect on this kind..The cure is to'concertlra(o on getting rid of the infection. Dr. Wintrolie snid it Is doubtful lhat any good Is done for this form or anemia by the frcquently-recoin- mcVulod multiple-shot medicines— Ihe sort containing anti-anemia chemicals and metals.
