Consumption Of Newsprint Sets Record NEW YORK Mi-Newsprint con sumption reached a record high 'or September and also for the 'irst nine months of 1955, the American Newspaper Publishers •\ssn. reports.' Newspapers reporting to the ANPA. used 424,807 tons of news- irint in September, 9.4 per cent more than the 388,321 tons in the ike month a year ago and 10.2 ner cent more than the 385,380 tons n September; 1953. For the first nine" months of 1955, eporling newspapers consumed ,684,994 Ions, an increase of 7.8 er cent over the 3,418,105 tons in he like period a year ago. Figures re based on 525 U.S. newspapers, vhich use around three-fourths of tie newsprint consumed in this :ountry. The jump in consumption has esulted largely from increased lewspaper advertising, which has irought fatter papers. Newspaper idvertising linage has been run- ilng around 10 per cent ahead of he year ago level. Another factor as been higher circulation in many cilies. Newsprint has been in tight upply for several "months and here have been reports of a gray narket, in which premiums of $50 Ion.or more have been paid. The general price of newsprinl s $126 a Ion, delivered in New fork. One majoi* Canadian manu- acturer, St. Lawrence Corp., has nnouhc'ed an increase of 55 to $131 ton, effective Nov. 1, bringing n air of uncertainty to the price Uuatipn. In. the past, a price rise by one anadian. manufacturer usually as been followed by the industry, o far, only St. Lawrence Corp. as raised the price.

NEW YORK OR — Gen..Douglas MacArthur said today the Penta;on report released yesterday 'fully confirms that I was never consulted" concerning the Yalta conference. . . '." MacArthur said: "The issue involved al Ihe origin of Ibis controversy was not whether Russia should have been jrought into the Pacific war. — Ihis should have clearly been,done at the very beginning — but whether,we should have made vital ter- nlorial concessions at the expense of Chinese sovereignty to induce Russia to come in at the end." The former Far.East commahd- er.said he. had urged on Dec. .13, 1941, shortly after Pearl Harbor, ;hat Russia attack from ; : the north. This, he said, would .have 'saved countless -lives, billions.ot dollars, and spared the Philippines Malaya, the Dutch East Indies, s'ew Guinea and many Pacific ii- ands." Douglas Claims FDR Exonerated In Report WASHINGTON — (INS — Sen. Patil Douglas (D) 111., claimed today that the MacArthur* papers "exonerate President Roosevelt's decision at Yalta to bring Russia into the war against Japan." _ They show, he said, that Hoosev'elt was acting on "the best military advise". —including that of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Douglas pointed out that at the time of Yalta—February, 19-15—the role of the. ( atomic bomb in ending the war could not be foreseen, 'nor .could-the fact that Russia was of little help in the Pacific. But, he said, there is "not the lightest hint of documentation" ven. remotely suggesting the sup- orted territorial concessions. Nor, he said, was there any ocumentation that "after my ini- al recommendation in 1941 I allocated prior to Yalta that Russia nter the Pacific war." AlacArthur's statement. was is- ued to the press by Maj. Gen. ourtney Whitney, long-time aide MacArthur. Whitney said Mac- ; \rthur would make no -further' omment and would not elaborate n his statement. iecord Shows General lad Concurred Twice WASHINGTON m — Long-secret [qcuments from Pentagon files ecord that Gen. Douglas MacArthur twice concurred directly in he opinion that Russia should. move into the World War II conflict against Japan. Once was three days after Pearl Harbor, when he called a northern slrike at Japan a "golden opportunity." The other was in mid- June 1945, two months before the war ended, when he said, "The 'ive young children of one family hazard and loss (to American urned to death today when lire 1 attacking forces, will be greatly lessened" by a Russian attack.
