Withy (United Pre« SUB Correspondent) SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn., May H (UP)— Non-strikers passed through picket lines without incident at major packing plants here today under protection of national guardsmen. Absence of new violence brought hope for settlement of the long and bitter meat strike. Union and management representatives 'were to meet with Gov. Luther Youngdahl *jjre and other meetings were >re- JP-'ted being arranged in Chisago. Hundreds of emploj'cs heeded a call by Swift and Co. that they return to work today. Pickets hurled taunts of "scab" and "strikebreaker" but made no attempt to stop them,* Strikers also stood aside to permit truckloads of livestock to enter the stockyards, reopening for limited bnstness after having been closed several days by pickets. However, stock receipts were considerably lighter than had been expected. A stockyards spokesman said Saturday he anticipated receipts oi about 8,500 head today. Smaller numbers of workers also entered the Armour plant here, the Cudahy plant at nearby Newport and the "Wilson plant at Albert Lea 100 miles to the South. National Guard units, called out Friday after three days of strike violence, also were on duty at those plants. Swift and Co. expected about 750 workers back on the job today. Negotiations Resumed While the heavily-armed troops Patrolled the streets here, at nearby Newport, and at Albert Lea, Gov. Luther W. Youngdahl asked union and company representatives to «fcet with him today in an effort W> settle the strike. Ralph Helstciii, president of the UPW, said in Chicago that the union would be happy to attend, if management sent representatives empowered to make decisions The big four packers— Swift, Wilson, Armour.^and Cudahy— indicated they , would- be represented, ,; ; -;Meahwhile, the WSJWs Strike Strategy Committee in Chicago fr'"\.

May 17, (UP)— The United states wants to restore the "balance of power" in Europe before It enters any kind of serious negotiations with Russia it was learned today. Russia now holds t!ie preponderance of power in the game of power politics being played for that continent. And that means she probably would have the strongest hand in any kind of showdown negotiations at this time. The Untied States believed the West is potentially the strongest player in the game tor Europe She is counting on the European Recovery Program to fill the power vacuum in Europe along Western Ideological lines and on the flve- power "Western Union'.' to hold the line against Communist until then. Bill for Mammoth Carrier Okayed 65,000-Ton Ship Capable of Handling B-29's Is Planned WASHINGTON, May 17--(UP> —A House Subcommittee today approved legislation which wonki clear Jhe way for construction of BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, MAT 17. 1948 . Adm. Louis Denfeld, chief of naval operations, had testified ear- immediately to negotiate '^n-a*n»l • nient in tliy-.Avu-irtoiir/rtuiciWiiin^tt' Representatives of the lag Iwjr puckers did not commit themselves to meeting with the union immediately. Most preferred to wait for orf] C ial invitations from the U s Conciliation Service, which presumably would conduct the talks Except for a brief skirmish between soldiers and pickets Sntur- ?h y '. n ° ™ Ience was repo the strife -torn Minnesota front over the weekend Col. Harlan Bynell, chief of staff of the state 'Adjutant General's Of- flee. said all was quiet. He said troops were ordered to Albert Lea at the reported on strike local who o said 300 to 400 pickets had been massing at the Wilson plant over tne weekend. ^Demands to settle the strike came «om many directions in Minnesota. Youngdahl said he was beinjr pressured to end the dispute by larmers. businessmen, and workers ""it connected with it. Rail Unions, Operators to Meet Tuesday WASHINGTON, May 17 CU P )— Representatives -of the railroad operators and unions will meet to morrow in an effort to reach an agreement that would permit the ckth ck to the owners. White House Press Secretary Charles G. Ross said the carriers and heads of the three unions have agreed to meet at the suggestion of Presidential Assistant John™ Steelman. Ross said it »i« be a joint session. Steelman will not attend The railroad representatives will include William Faricy, 1)rcsU , cnt of thc Association of American Railroads, Ross told reporters. P ° Ject had thc f fh u rovn of the combined chiefs of staff He said B-29 Super-fort planes "would be able to take off P from but not land on" the new carrier The legislation—which now goes to the full Armed Services Committee—would authorize the Navy to suspend work on ,3 warships now under construction iii order to concentrate on the flush-deck carrier that will be the world's longest ship. Denfeld told the committee the new carrier could be completed In from 30 to 32 months "in event of an emergency" but that under present plans it will take four years Defense Secretary Forrcstal, in a letter to the subcommittee said the super carrier project had approval of all the nations top military leaders. Denfeld said it had been approved as an integral part 'of the ID-group air force .cns*'*-i «»mrtil \SJta.StI8 President Truman the nation's railroads last Monday, only hours before the three unions werd scheduled to strike.

Speed To Match Size He said the ship will match the speed of the Midway, biggest and fastest of the Navy's present carrier fleet. The flight deck will be 190 feet wide, with hinged catapults oa either side to bring the overall width to 336 feet, he said. . 'He said the Navy had suspended work on the 13 'ships because "developments and new concepts of warfare" had outdated them already. "It l s possible they will be completed at some figure date with different characteristics but at this time decision to expend considerable funds on them is not warranted," Denfeld said. Earlier, Subcommittee chairman William E. Hess, R. o., under the Impression that, the Army and Air Force weren't consulted about Navy plans for 'the big ship, had demanded to know why. Subcommittee members said that under a "unified" defense establishment, Congress had a right to expect important policy decisions to be cleared with all three services. Sullivan testified Friday thc Navy was on its own when it decided to stop work on 13 conventional shlp s and concentrate instead on new submarines, a "killer" ship, and the Hush-deck super carrier Will Carry Jet Planes The Navy's biggest carriers now- those of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt class-total 45,000 tons- The new ship, SulUrnn said «••'! carry "very much larger" plan I jet-powered- "hey can cover a rao- lus of 1,700 miles.

"Most of our time wns concerned with the duties of keeping our house and household," she said. they were friendly and treated us without resentment; however few of them were connected with the Nazi regime because of their lower positions in life. They were eager to work for the American people because In many cases it was their only means of survival. "They would work for cigarettes imd supplies quicker than for money, because even if they had money there would be very little to buy Consequently many of the O I wives traded supplies for the most valuable possessions of th« Germans and brought home quit* extensive collections of china, figurines wooiicarvings and such." However, Mrs. McDonald pointed out that this practice was frowned on by most wives because of the difficulty of keeping their own. families well supplied, and when trad- Ing was discovered, those participating were returned to the States by the Military Government, Mrs. McDonald said.
