ARKANSAS, TUESDAY, JUNK 22, 1948 FOURTEEN PAGES Truck Submerged; Driver Is Killed SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS Currency Dispute Meeting Is Called Four Powers Might Agree on Single Type Of Money in Germany BERLIN. June 22. (UP)—Finance chiefs of Russia and the Western Allies met today, and an outside chance was seen that they might gree on a single currency for all Germany. Ostensibly the meeting—the first four-power high level conference since Soviet representatives walked out. of the Allied Control Council March 29—was to decide Berlin's place in the East versus West currency reform dispute. But the fact that, the Russians were meeting at all u-ilh American, British and French officials gave some hope that the Soviet Union now might be willing to work out a new money for all the zones of Germany. Financial experts of all the four powers galhereri at the conference table. Jack Bennett, financial adviser to American Military Governor Gen. Lucius D.

The problem was a tough one. The Western Allies had issued new money in their occupation zones. The Russians were hastening to do the same. The burning issue was whether the Anglo-American- French sectors of Berlin should be fined into the Soviet reform scheme Sokolovsky said it should. Berlin was a purl of the Soviet zone, tied closely to it economically, nnd therefore must be subject to the Soviet currency reform, he said. The British mililary governor, Lt. Gen. sir Brian Robertson, in a Idler proposing the four-power meeting, nolified Sokolovsky that the Western powers for whom he spoke "do not accept the statement that Greater Berlin forms part of the Soviet Zone, either economically or in any other sense."
