(Al>) —Openly defiant, Japan's Communist I'ai'ty today ordered a genera) strike Saturday in reprisal for the occupation's rush trial of eight Japanese accused of kicking and stoning American soldiers. Tlie strike call promised to bring to a head growing tension between General MacArtlnir's occupation and Die hcjllgerent Communists. This ten-sion, fueled by recent international Communist charges that the Japanese Reds werejtpo docile, erupted Memorial Day in the first physical violence of tile occupation against U. s. troops. A captain and four enlisted men,* observers at a Communist anti- American rally in downtown imperial plaza, were kicked, beaten and stoned. Only a few hours earlier, authorities had expelled the Communists from the plaza to per- m:t Americans to hold Memorial Day services for their war dead. Including those who fell in the Pacific conflict against Japan. Defense Is Urged MacArthur In a May 2 speech urged the Japanese to defend their ,'iftew constitutional liberties against --'cJie "international political perfidy" of communism. He suggested the possibility of outlawing Japan's Communist Parly. The Communist Parly howled that the plaza incidents were caused "by systematic and organized provocations by spies" and thundered: "Workers and students—rise up and start, a general strike . . . demanding immediate release of the eight patriots." It timed the reprisal strike to coincide with general strikes Saturday in the automobile, metal trades and heavy industry. The party's purpose In the latter is to fluence the elections Sunday for the upper house of parliament. Effects Not Known | There was no way of telling how effective the Communists coult make their general strike.

Measuring of cotton and other allotted crops under the provisions of the government's marketing quota will get under way in Mississippi County next week, according to Floyd Crouch, senior field assistant of the Production and Marketing Administration for the county. Crews of workmen will take to th« fields the middle of next week, probably Wednesday, to begin measuring of all crops effected by tha government's acreage quotas, Mr. Crouch snid. Mississippi County's cotton quota is 47 pc r cent, which means that most farmers of the county will be allowed to plant 47 percent of their cropland In cotton. Everything in excess ol 41 percent will be declared ovcl plant and must b« plowed up or the farmer will ba required to pay a heavy marketing penally. SO Get Schooling Approximately 50 crewmen began schooling this week at PMA offices here and In Osccota, this week.

All other ailoted crops will be estimated by tha reporters. ' Won't Tell Kcsiills The PMA field assistant also.said that the reporters will not be allowed to tell a farmer whether or not he has ovcrpltinled. Farmers will y be. notified by the PMA offices .after the measuring hns teen completed and a thorough check has been made. "When a farmer has uen notified lliat he has ovcrplanted. he will be given two alternatives." Mr. Crouch said. "He will be jlven 15 days to plow up the overplant or h« may pay a marketing penalty on the excessive acreage." The penalty, he explained, will be 15 cents per pound of cotton as estimated yield per acre set, up for the county multiplied by lha normal acreage. Tills penalty must be paid before any ol the farmcr'3 cotton can be sold. .Vill Get Marketing Card After a farmer's crop has been measured, the planter win be issued a marketing card which shows whether or not he had an over- plant and If the penalty has been p.ild or the overplant plowed up. The planter must produce this card to cotton buyers before selling any of tiis cotton crop. Mr. Crouch explained. In the event that a farmer has ovcrplanted and elects to plo-.v up bis excessive acreage, the crop must then be rc-cnccked with tbo producer being required to pay for tlic re-check, Mr. Crouch said. . Mr. Crouch urged that farmers o! the county cooperate fully with measuring crewmen so that the measuring \vorx can be completed as soon as possible.

Soviet, delegate A. A. Soldatov was expected to .show up lor Russia when the council mcctc (about 10 a.m.). The Russians boycotted Ihe Geneva winter meeting ol the council. This time they Indicated they want to demand again the ouster of the Chinese Nationalists and the seating of the Chinese Corn- niuiiists. The council is expected to reject the demand on the grounds that the U.N. General Assembly has to decide on who sits in the trusteeship council. Coupled with the Russian action, winch has led them and Ihcir satellites to walk out of or boycott 28 U.N. organs since Jan. 10. is a new demand by the Chinese Communist government at Pciplng that Its representatives be seated in the U.N. Latest Kcd Demand The latest demand from the Chinese Communist foteiqn minister. Chou Kn-lai, Is that a man named Meng Yung-chirn be -seated in the trusteeship countil. in a cable to U.N.

Chou recalled that the U.N. has been asked previously to seat Crmig Wen-ticn In the security council and Chi Chno-ting in the economic :vmi social council His cable said refusal to oust the nationalists anrl seat his candidates up until now 15 "unjustified."
