"How can the Republicans claim to have restored prosperity when fanners are suffering a 2^-bUHon dollar decline in farm income, when small businesses are suffering on main streets and when 38 per cent of the automobile retailers are losing money? "When 13 per cent of our population is being pinched by a drop in farm prices, prosperity isn't sound." * Butler said President Eisenhower had promised to balance the budget and declared: "If this administration can't balance the budget in an era of what it claims to be peace and prosperity, we Democrats wonder when, if ever, they can." More for Military Butler discounted Republican claims that the nation is in a peace time economy. He said the country has as large a military force in arms as during the Korean War and is spending more for the military, e At a news conference before the rally, Butler was asked his views on a statement by Gov. Allan Shivers o'i Texas that Shivers didn't think Adlai Stevenson could be elected president on the Democratic ticket. "If Shivers is a Democrat," answered Butler, "he would not be talking against any member of our party who is a ootential presidential candidate. "Regardless of what Shivers does or says, the Democratic nominee for president will carry Texas in 1956." 1 Shivers supported Eisenhower in 1952. REDS YALTA (Continued from Page 1) housing." But despite "these hopeful preparations," the document says, "no meeting' of importance occurred in Moscow until Sept. 23, 1944" when Ilarriman and the British ambassador went to inform Stalin of the results of the Quebec conference between President Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Churchill. Once again, the account says, "the Marshal's remarks .... opened the prospect of United States-Soviet staff conversations regarding; the war with Japan." But again, it adds, the talks did not materialize. Accepted List At conferences the next month in connection with Churchill's visit to Moscow, the report says Stalin "accepted the list 01" mission for his Far Eastern forces suggested by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, indicated that the Soviet Union would open hostilities against the Japanese about three months after the end of the European war, and accepted United States requests for air bases in the maritime provinces and Kanv'intka," the use of a naval base and the dispatch of small U. S. survey parties to those areas. Although Stalin was represented as "welcoming" a suggestion that a group of U.S. and Soviet staff officers proceed "at, once with detailed planning," the report said the "promised staff meetings again failed to occur, despite the assignment to Moscow of a special group of United States planning officers ..." The report said "a major setback was experienced" in December 1944 when Deane was informed the U.S. request for air bases in the maritime provinces could not be granted "since all the available facilities would be needed by the Soviet forces." "United states protests against this reversal of Marshal Stalin's previous assurances failed to alter the decision," the Pentagon report said. U.N.

The Pentagon record did Include summaries by two War Department officers of conversations they said they had with MacArthur when they reported to him in February 1949 the decisions reached at the Yalta conference which arranged for Russian entry into the war. Brig. Gen. George A. Lincoln 1 said Mac Arthur told him Russia probably would, be getting some territory »nyhow and "it was only right that they (the Eussians) should share the cost In blood in defeating Japan." Col. Paul L. Freeman wrote that MacArthur "emphatically stated that we must not invade Japan proper unless the Russian army Is previously committed to action in Manchuria." The report said that: On Dec. 10, 1941 (three days after the attack on Pearl Harbor) MacArthur messaged Gen. George C. Marshall, then Army chief of staff, that information available to him "shows that entry of Russia is enemy's greatest fear," and that "golden opportunity exists for a master stroke while the enemy is engaged in overextended initial air efforts." Another Comment The next direct comment from MacArthur, as reported by the Pentagon, was in June 1945, again sent to Marshall. In that message, discussing the proposal for invasion of the Japanese home islands, MacAarthur said. "Sooner or later a decisive ground attack must be made," and added that "the hazard and loss will be greatly lessened if an attack is launched from Siberia sufficiently ahead of our target date to commit the enemy to major combat." The debate over MacArthur's views grew out of State Department publication of the official record of the Yalta conference. MacArthur snid he knew nothing at the time about the meeting of the Americn, British and Russian chiefs of state at Yalta. If he had been consulted, he added, he would "most emphatically" have recommended against bringing the Russians into the Asiatic war at that late date. The Washington Post and Times Herald subsequently declared that MacArthur was "known" to have messaged the Joint Chiefs of Staff "pleading for concessions to get Russia into the Japanese war." Sen. Lehman (D-NYi declared in Senate speech that MacArthur was "trying to rewrite history." News m e n and congressmen, seeking to clarify the issue, began pressing for answers at the Pentagon. Yesterday's 107-page release of documents and summaries Was the result. In his statement for newsmen last March. MacArthur said the collapse of Japan was "clearly apparent several months" before the Yalta meeting. He asserted that "all my dispatches and reports clearly enunciated this view point and said that he had stated that on Sept. 21 and Oct. 20. 1944. They asked about it. A spokesman said those statements were made in wartime communiques for the press and therefore were not included in the official file of MacArthur dispatches which the Pentagon keeps. Monthly Consultation The report was compiled after months of consultation by Pentagon officials with the State Department. Army. Navy and Air Force and a study of their records. A covering statement on the report said it did not tell "the full story" of Soviet entry into the war because some aspects were handled outside the military departments (possibly a reference to the State Department and the British government.) Whatever were MacArthur s opinions, the report shows that as the war progressed the military command in Washington viewed with steadily lessening importance the question of whether Russian help was needed to defeat Japan. Balanced against this, however, was the general feeling that such help would make Japan's defeat easier and less costly in casualties—which at one point were estimated at 35 per cent of the 1'b million men needed. The chiefs of staff, in a paper j pared in November 1944, "pointed out that Soviet participation, while desirable to hasten the tin- condition surrender of Japan, was not essential," the report said. On the eve of the Yalta conference, they said. "We desire Russian entry at the earliest possible date consistent with her ability to engage in offensive operations." In April, the chiefs again reviewed strategy and. said the report, advised that "Soviet entry into the war was no longer considered necessary to make this invasion (of the homeland) feasible." Followed Advice DAYTON, Ohio (/P|—The United Nations suffered a small setback at Dayton's main intersection yesterday. "Come one, come all," said a woman's voice over a loudspeaker, urging Daytonians to sign a scroll pledging support to the U.N. Among those who came was a police officer. His suggestion: cut the volume of the amplifier. He has a noise complaint. She didso. Proof Enough GARRETT PARK, Md.
