H. SHACKFORD WASHINGTON. July 8 (U.R) Russia's rejection of the Marshall plan gave dramatic support today to American foreign policy officials who believe the wartime grand alliance was an illusion and that the late President Roosevelt's design lor one world is dead. Some are proposing that the U. S.

admit this publicly as it has been recognized privately in these quarters for months. They would openly seek a working arrange ment for the two worlds, hoping it would provide a 50-50 chance for peace. Most of these officials, who are Secretary of State George C. Mar shall's advisers, never have believed that the Roosevelt dream of one world with a cooperative Rus sia is practical or feasible. nam They claim that: 1 There are at least "two worlds" led by the U.

S. and the USSR which are irreconcilable for the foreseeable future and maybe forever. CHICAGO.

Juvenile CriraiinaDs Seosed A four month long juvenile crime rampage has come to an end with police charging seven boys with five burglaries, five purse snatchings. and one grand larceny.

Sarum said the loss in money and miscellaneous personal property amounted to more than $500. Various items were recovered by the police, but none of the money.

The cab was found later on the grounds of Kauluwela school about 2:30 a. m. by a janitor. Lt. Sagum said no suspects have been picked up in connection with the shooting.

However, all officers are canvassing the city for persons answering the police description of the robber. Police have described the robbery as one of the most brutal in Honolulu history.

Feinsinger SHOWN ON ARRIVAL UAl, photo. ore B-29s Will Be Sent Overseas WASHINGTON, July 8 UP) The United States is stepping up the frequency of its B-29 training missions to overseas theaters to the point where Superfortresses will be on hand in Europe and the Orient most of the time. a Asthe new B-50 bombers begin to reach operating units of the strategic air command they presumably will be flown to Germany and Japan as part of the training program. It is doubtful that the outsize B-36. which dwarfs the B-29s and B-50s, will be sent to overseas bases.

The B-36 is of such weight that existing airstrips in the occupation zones probably would be incapable oi handling it. further, that stra tegic concept of the B-36 is that of "hit-and-run-home," making its strikes from bases within the Unit ed States to any point within its lu.uuu mile range. for a prompt, peaceful and fair set tlement of this dispute. "This is the sole concern of the federal government. I assume it is likewise the desire of all parties immediately concerned." Ben Takayesu.

Over 41.000 persons saw the diamond classic. The American league triumph gave the junior circuit a 10 to 4 edge in the series which started in 1933. With the score tied at 1-1, Bobby Doerr of the Red Sox rifled a single to left, with one out in the seventh.

JP) James C. Petrillo agreed today to "work out a deal" with educators to permit school children to make musical broadcasts by radio. Petrillo told Rep.

Kearns called "abuses" by the American Federation of Musicians- AFL), of which Petrillo is president. Rep.

a The clash in engineering opinion is revealed in a letter which Mr. Sinclair has written to the mayor and board of supervisors. His letter is occasioned by an adverse report on the Kalihi route made by Wright L. Felt, division engineer of the federal works agency. Mr.

Felt disapproves a proposed $300,000 federal fund grant for the Kalihi project. Mr. Felt's disapproval is based on a report by. Frank L. Carlson, federal public roads administrator for Hawaii.

City Engineer Sinclair lumps together "the territorial highway engineer and the local engineer for the public roads administration" in a caustic comment on what he calls their attempts to "block" the city and county from getting federal aid funds. As to engineering and physical construction, "a much better and more feasible" tunnel can be con structed at the Kalihi site than at Nuuanu valley. Mr. Sinclair's statement said to the mayor and board of supervisors. The request was denied because the project is considered "economically unfeasible" by the agency.

To this Sinclair retorts: "It would appear that the territo rial highway engineer and the local engineer for the public roads ad- ministraton are ignoring the prero gatives of the legislature by at tempting to block the city-county from receiving any federal funds. Their action is in direct contradiction to Act No. 95 of the terri torial legislature. The legislation was signed and approved by the governor and further approved by your honorable body. Mr.

Sinclair's statements are the most recent development in the old controversy between the city-county administraton and the territorial highway department, which always has advocated a tunnel through the Nuuanu valley side.

PATERSOX OFFERS $8,000 SIDE BET TO MARINO GLASGOW, July 8 World flyweight champion Jackie Paterson offered a $8,000 side bet today to Dado Marino of Hawaii, as proof he would be fighting fit for their title bout July 16.

Opposing maritime factions, be said, were "farther apart even than are the multi-million dollar pineapple Industry and the ILWU in their present negotiations.

Coast guard officers said vessels on the tanker's course have been put on the alert. tt a a Last Thursday afternoon the state forest ranger lookout station on the coast north of Ft. Ross reported what appeared to be a tanker burned and sank about 10 miles at sea. A coast guard air and surface search, however, failed to disclose any evidence of a marine sinking and the search abandoned. Officials of Amtorg, the Soviet trading agency, requested the search when they were unable to radio the vessel.

Capt. S. P. Swicegood of the coast guard here does not believe the ves sel is in trouble. He said the ship is slow, might, have been delayed and could have a defective radio.
